I was playing an Invasion-Invasion-Invasion draft this summer and drafted something like 6 Shoreline Raider (2/2 Merfolk for 2U with protection from Kavu). Throughout all my matches, all they had really been were vanilla 2/2s, but in the last round, I faced a guy who had drafted 3 Vicious Kavu, 2 Kavu Chameleon and a Raging Kavu. So basically what happened was that I dropped my pro Kavu fishies and blocked until I had enough power down to win the game. Everyone was like "What the hell, protection from Kavu actually did something!"

So I kept a hand that had 1 land (Bayou), 1 Cabal Therapy, and a bunch of 2cc and higher spells. I won the roll and chose to go first. I play Bayou and cast Cabal Therapy. I randomly name Tarmogoyf (as everyone plays it)) and managed to get him to discard two. It turns out he is playing a Sneak Attack deck. In his hand is a Witness, Sneak Attack, and 1 high casting creature. So he drops a land and passes. For my next 3 turns, I draw Cabal Therapy and name every card in his hand. He quits. Tuesday

I have a few... but I'll only list two.

I have fond memories of having a burn deck around the time of the first Draw-Go decks. It was fast and aggressive with Fireblast and Incinerates and such... really brutal deck from when burn was good (Though it isn't bad now to be fair). Anyway... I always had trouble with Draw-go (an all counter deck akin to today's Waffo Tappa builds/Dralnu etc). They'd just let me burn em low and laugh as they countered everything - my solution? Oath of Mages. Never heard of it? I didn't expect you to. Just go look it up, I'll wait.


What I'd do is drop it turn two and they'd have to deal with it. Why you ask? Because I'd drop it and mana burn myself slowly while crafting my hand. Then when we were both at like 3-4 I'd have at sick grip of all burn and I'd unload at their EOT. GG. Hilarious stuff - anywho, I had written in paint pen on these Oaths "SUCK IT" in huge letters. It was a trash rare afterall. One day at the shop, a bunch of religious folk wander into the shop to throw pamplets at people or something. Whatever god fearin' folk do. Right when they come in and start to preach, my fiance at the time, who is a bored card shop girl - is standing on a table reading through my deck and loudly exclaims "SUCK IT!"

They just turned around and walked out. So funny.

The other story is one of me clowning one of my friends out of the game almost permanantly. The era was Kamigawa/Mirrodin Standard. I had a... get this shit... Type two - 5 color - Highlander deck built for a Highlander league I was playing in. There was a local charity Extended tourny at the campus I worked for so I said "what the hell, I'll play." It was for a good cause. I used the only deck I had - "Gayzilla.dec" My T2 Mir/Kami 5c Highlander deck. In extended. So awful. (by the way, it was called "Gayzilla.dec" because it had Bringer of the Blue Dawn in it. I loved informing people that they were just "buttfucked by Gayzilla.")

First round I was paired against my friend playing a tuned U/g Madness deck. I get to talking to some of my buds. I lose track of time. Eventually the judge comes to me and gives me a game loss for not showing up to my opponent's table. Fine, fine...

So I go and sit down to end this farce - and the deck gives me twin God hands and I 2-1 through the first round. My opponent (who actually wanted to win this tourney) is just dumbfounded. He left the building that day, and I haven't seen him play tournement Magic since.

So... good times.

XD, that's hilarious

Well, one time, I was running ninja and the only cards in my hand were 5 lands, an Ornithopter and Jitte. I run 24 lands in that deck, and the next 10 or so were all lands. And for the next several turns I'm like "WTF?! Talk about mana flood."
However, I just equip Jitte to 'thopter and once I get at least 10 counters on him, I just let it rip. THat was awesome. 20/22 Ornithopter ftw.
