  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    It looks like either way, this party will be coming to a close.
  10. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Dream Thrush blocks Shaper Guildmage
    Darkling Stalker blocks Seasoned Tactician
    Spiny Starfish blocks Elite Javelineer
    Footpad blocks Steadfast Guard
    Glacial Wall blocks Mtenda Herder

    Magus of the Unseen isn't blocked
    Silkenfist Fighter isn't blocked

    Flanking trigger on the stack? Resolves? (Glacial Wall now 0/6)

    Before damage on the stack, I'll pay BB to make my Darkling Stalker 3/3

    Damage on the stack?
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yep. Dmg resolves?
  12. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    No, I'll pay U to regenerate my Spiny Starfish.

    Now damage can resolve.
  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Okay, so I lose the Shaper Guildmage, Seasoned Tactician, and Steadfast Guard

    You lose the Dream Thrush, Rishadan Footpad, get a Starfish token and take 2 dmg from the unblocked guys.

    Yep, resolves. That's the end.

    Good game! The Brine Shaman was my downfall... :(
  16. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    The Brine Shaman? I'm thinking that the Metathran Soldier played a large part too!

    :D
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Nah, if I could have gotten out my Warrior Angel, the Soldier was no problem... :)
  18. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Would you have had an answer to Control Magic?
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You were holding that? :eek: Um, no, that would have been a problem...
  20. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I was holding it almost since the beginning of the game. I even contemplated not playing the Brine Shaman just so I could take the Angel... but figured it wasn't worth the risk.

    Who do I face next?
