I had a set of very intense games last night and I was not the best sportsman while playing through several counter wars. I was playing Blue Moon and he was playing Jeskai. The game starts as usual with Mental Misstep and there were just countless counter battles from there.
There are a lot of counters flying back and forth and he sticks a Dack and a Jace but I stick a Pyromancer and Snapcaster. The games can be called interactive but I became very irritated with pace and the flow of the game.
Post side board we were both way over the top with counterspells and some removal, and the pace of the counter war intensified and we go to game 3.
In game 3, I force myself to stay focused and I we are both just drawing a ton of cards to build critical mass and I resolve a Pyromancer and again I will have lethal in a turn. We have a counter battle that went about 12 deep on the stack.
I admit that I was complaining in the chat, the game was intense and I guess interactive. I absolutely hated playing it. I won in the end because of timing and sequencing and a little luck but I hated it.
I owe that guy an apology for complaining but this match proved to me that there are just too many counters in Vintage.
