^ Good for you.

My deck failed miserably against control. I absolutely do not recommend it without some changes. Jenara and Elspeth come to mind.

by Lynolf on 2009-07-12 22:38 CET

That's gotta be the worst mana base I've ever seen. Armilliary Sphere? Really? Have you ever heard about vivid lands and Reflecting Pool?

And how did Kiss of the Amesha work for you?

"Alara Block Constructed Deck"

Oops... my bad. :P

That's what happens when you spend your entire day studying for an exam in the following day. -.-"

by DTrooper on 2009-07-12 22:57 CET

Boa sorte nisso, man. ;)

by mtgsoldier on 2009-07-12 23:52 CET

Thats not a fail.

I mean... tuga champion played with 4 lion eye diamond in vintage, why cant he play with vivis in alara block??

Thats just not fair :(

You try, you fail. The lesson is: never try

Good going trooper, Guess You Played the right deck after all huh?

BTW Tonis is the guy that beat me in the first round good going

by IvanDano on 2009-07-13 14:28 CET

i love the 2nd place deck...it really looks familiar...

if you want to beat the walls...add 4 Jhessian Infiltrator to the sb...

i would take out the two martial coup and maybe the Pridemages but I like using them for Obelisks or Esper decks...

by DTrooper on 2009-07-13 15:45 CET


Not at all, actually! I expected a lot more Jund but played a lot more 4/5cc, which this deck doesn't do that well against. I will probably add Jhessian Infiltrator as suggested by IvanDano as it is a great dude to beat the walls and equip with a Armadillo Hammer.

I had a lot of lucky draws to get there. I guess.
