Matori/ Bug Leovold 2-0
it was @moatzu :)
Can you upload decklists to MTGGoldfish as well ?
@yugular Thank you for organizing another successful Season, I really enjoy playing it.
Congrats to @ReneRandrup , our semifinal match was so intense and interesting, even in Game 3 I mulled to oblivion I really lost that match during Game 2 when I aggressively fed all my Bloodghasts to Ichorids after I got rid of hate, leaving my field without any creature and failing to see how easily Mentor can recover and dig more hate. That one misplay during whole tournament cost me finals, but I really enjoyed playing against all opponents.
My matches went like this :
vs DragonlordOath 0-2
vs RavagerShops 2-1
vs RavagerShops 2-0
vs JacoDrazi 2-1
vs Mentor 1-2
Remember to send your decklists this weekend! I already sent mine :)
Sent few days ago :)
Awww, 6pm CET is roughly 3am here. Sometimes it is shit being Australian in the digital world.
Same feeling in Europe. I was waking up at 5am during Vintage league ran by @desolutionist .
Maybe you can participate during weekends in time slot from 7~11pm AEST (9am~1pm CET) ?
Leagues are also tricky in sense of time zones. Let's say that my available time slot is from 8~10pm CET, I will play against same group of players again and again, similar to 2 player queue right now. But that is me with my busy life, let's hope that this will be beneficial for online community since possibility to play Vintage even with same players always is better that no Vintage at all.
Congrats on your finish and overall performance on mtgo. Your brew from latest P9C is great and refreshing.
Regarding Beginner's guide to Vintage, I think it is well known and appreciated content , I also evangelize it to local community when I tried to introduce Vintage. Was not aware that you are author, nor that you are doing streams. Please continue your good work and deliver more content like this :)
Thanks so much @matori !
Some more Q's:
- Was Needle good for you?
- How did Ashen Rider perform throughout the day?
Chancellor seems like an excellent meta call at the moment, what with Paradoxical Outcome being such a thing.
Needle is all star. During that evening I used it for Sensei's Divining Top, Griselbrad, Saheeli Rai, Wasteland, Jace...you name it, in some crazy setup you can even name Bazaar in mirror if you have Marit Lage combo ready and opponent have Leyline or he can out race you with classic build. At least it can by you one or two turns to set up win or find answer for threat.
Ashen Rider is an answer to threats that stick around, I didn't used it very often that evening but I felt more comfortable having it as an option.
Regarding PO decks, Mindbreak Trap is also thing against it, and I prefer it instead of Gitaxian Probe which I was testing last few weeks.
Dear all, dear @yugular .
I just received my biz trip schedule for December and I am forced to sign out for League :(
I am really, really sorry about that, I looked forward to it but I cannot make it this time.
I am sure that this project will have great success and hopefully we will see each other in Season2.
I will opt out from Challonge as well.
Sorry again and thanks for understanding.
Hello Pitch Dredge lovers :)
I Top8ed November P9C, losing "only" to @The-Atog-Lord Stax twice.
During rounds I faced :
I madeTop8 with 5-1 result positioned as 3rd after 6 rounds.
In Top8 I lost to The_Atog_Lord 1-2
I missed land drop to assemble Marit Lage for several turns during game 3 before he found double Wasteland+ Crucible sealing it with Smokestack. All 3 post board games (during rounds and Top8) he had Leyline of the Void which pretty much shut downed dredge plan leaving Marit Lage combo as an only option.
I already replied to @Lesbimagical about my MD reasoning but I will paste it here as well :
I am playing Pitch Dredge for some time now. I started with standard Adams list, slowly modifying it during time.
First modification was Dragonlord Kolaghan MD since deck was missing classic dredge explosives.
Great weakness of post board plan is Karakas, Wasteland, and Jace -1 ability, so 2nd modification was Pitting Needle in sideboard ( @Islandswamp credit). Due to needle I was forced to trim lands, so I abandoned Library of Alexandria plan trimmed Urborg to 3 and included 1 MD.
Urborg MD can be great for hard casting therapies and even creatures if we face Containment Priest game 1 which we can easily beat by casting creatures and sacking it to therapies with GY full of bridges.
Last modification was including Ashen Rider MD, which can answer bunch of threats and is really mvp against many decks.
Since I wanted lots of heavy filers to deal with Moat, or block Blazing Archon until I found solution for it and I love “free wins” there are 3 Chancellor of the Annex MD.
Chancellor is basically flying Lodestone Golem and can easily steal games if opponent kept hand which is reliable of Ponder/ Preordain or mana light.
Since I want Kolaghann, Ashen Rider and Chancellor to be easy accessible hence 3 Dread Returns MD. Also it is useful to sac/ return Ashen rider multiple times.
I feel that Pitch Dredge is positioned very well right now, just we need that fine tuning for particular meta from time to time.
Looks like your connection to The Mana Drain was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
