    Yeah. That was what I was afraid of. Your turn.

    Oversoul, Just curious. Have you played this deck you have drafted before in maybe real life?
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I've played storm decks (if that's what you mean) before, but not a 40-card highlander storm deck.

    I have no responses to the Juggernaut. I will take my two cards from Arcane Denial, of course, but I was under the impression that you were going to Fireball me right about now...

    Anything else for this turn?
  12. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    No Im done. You still have a chance. I didnt draw the ball...yet.
  13. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Untap, upkeep, draw, Urza's Bauble, activate it. Let's see a random card from your hand.
  14. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    I only have one at this time.

    Apathy. Enchant creature
    Enchanted creature doesn’t untap during its controller’s untap step.
    At the beginning of the upkeep of enchanted creature’s controller, that player may discard a card at random. If he or she does, untap that creature.
  15. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Excellent, it's not a counter.

    Chrome Mox imprinting Yawgmoth's Bargain. Phyrexian Walker. Lion's Eye Diamond. Mana Crypt. I'll tap the Chrome Mox to play Dark Ritual, then activate the Mana Crypt, sacrifice the Tinder Wall, and use one of my black mana from the Dark Ritual in order to play Memory Jar. Then I'll use the LED (discarding Frantic Search) for UUU. This brings the storm count up to seven and leaves me with UUUBB floating. Fun stuff.

    Now I'll use the Memory Jar. We both get new hands. Yay!

    I'll drop a Thran Quarry and an Ornithopter. Since you have a new hand, I'll wait to see if you have any responses to the Ornithopter before continuing.

    Storm count: 8
    Mana floating: UUUBB
  16. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'll tap out to play "No more, Oversoul." It's a split second instant that forces any opponent named Oversoul to either pay 20 life, put 28 cards from their library into their graveyard AND draw a card, or become chemically castrated. If that opponent does not, he (probably she) loses the game...



    .... :D


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I respond with, "Shut up, Ransac." It's a super split-second instant that counters any spell played by Ransac in a game he's not supposed to be in. Then Ransac must lose his next 20 games or be castrated by an army of tenors with rusty spoons.
  18. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'll respond by conceding. Spell never resolves. :D


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  19. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    At this point I didnt draw any counters.
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I'll pay UB for Night's Whisper, bringing me to 18 life and the storm count up to 9. I have UUB left.

    I'll use the UUB to play Yawgmoth's Will. Now I have a storm count of 10.

    From my graveyard, I'll play Black Lotus, Lion's Eye Diamond, and Urza's Bauble, bringing the storm count up to 13.

    I'll tap the Thran Quarry for B and play Dark Ritual from my graveyard. Now I have BBB and the storm count is 14.

    I'll activate Black Lotus for UUU and play Frantic Search from my graveyard for UUB, leaving me with UBB. But then I discard Forbidden Orchard and Rootwater Depths to the Frantic Search and untap my Thran Quarry, which I activate again for G. Now I have UBBG and a storm count of 15.

    I'll use the G to play Tinder Wall from my graveyard and sac it for RR. Now I have UBBRR and a storm count of 16.

    I'll replay Night's Whisper from my graveyard, bringing me to 16 life, UBR and a storm count of 17.

    I'll use the R to play Chromatic Sphere from my graveyard, leaving me with UB and a storm count of 18.

    I'll use my last remaining mana to cast Brain Freeze from my hand, putting the top three cards of your library into your graveyard, and then doing it again 18 more times for a total of 57 cards. Your turn. Decked?
