I went 3-2-0. It was cool, except the part where i forgot i took a claritin earlier in the day (i know it doesn’t do anything for me), then broke down and bought the medicine the works for me (allegra d, even though i hate buying it because i just get the worst looks from the pharmacists), and took it without thinking of the medicine i had already taken and ended up in antihistamine purgatory. i worked through it.
I began feeling terrible match one.
0-2 against a bant deck, with voice of resurgence. don’t play cards during their turn. just don’t.
i ate chipotle during this match, then sucked down a rootbeer. then ate altoids mints so i wasn’t the worst.
2-0 against an aristrocrats deck with aggressive creatures. she couldn’t get the mana to play the right things the first game, and the second game she didn’t have enough things to play.
it was during the second match they handed out the boosters just for entering. the first featured 4 cluestones, but had a foil debt to the deathless. forgettable rares. the foil debt to the deathless makes me want to make a 3d card out of it.
2-1 against a banty deck. close fun games.
this is around the time i stopped feeling super shitty.
2-1 against another banty deck. this guy was a super serious guy that didn’t look like he has enjoyed magic in a while. hatefully playing games whilst jaded is one way to go about it.
1-2 against an aggressive black red deck. i just lost too much life too fast to wrath stuff away properly, nevermind drawing a sphinx’s revelation. one game was really funny because he was waiting for me just to get to 5 life, and i was at 6, and had run out of all of the silly ways to hold his creatures back (azorius charm and feeling of dread), and chump blocked his boros reckoner with a spirit token that took me to 5, then he just played burn spells to murder me.
i ended up 10th place out of 28, and was at 7th just before game 5, which was really cool. the shop prized out to 16, giving me a pack. more cluestones, and i don’t remember the rare.
there’s a cash tournament tomorrow, and a lot of the people i played against are playing tomorrow. unfortunately, it’s early. fortunately it’s free. so if i lose, i didn’t gamble it, and if i win, then it’s free money. except you know. but insert odb quoute here if you feel so obliged to so.
i cannot wait until the next cycle to draft.
