There was an incredible number of Affinity and unfortunatly, our Humans's player took the biggest part of them and get destroyed.
Here is the list that I've finally brought :
I've moved my 4th Blood Moon for a Chandra, when I bring Blood Moon post-side.
Here are my results :
Round 1 :
vs Sun & Moon
I quickly identify the deck when he plays a Calice turn 2 with just Sacred Foundry and a Mountain.
I play a big board and destroy his Ensnaring bridge to kill him in 2 turns.
For the 2°), he mulligan 5 and doesn't draw anything relevant except a Blood Moon (but I've fetched on basic turn 1 and 2)
An ultimate of Liliana closes the game
Round 2 :
I won the 1st thanks to an agressive hand with Turn 1 IoK on Eidolon, Turn 2 Tarmogoyf, Turn 3 Goblin Rabblemaster
The 2°) I won a lot of life thanks to Collective Brutality and Huntmaster but this last one is killed by a Searing Blaze and I don't find some other creatures.
The 3°) is closed, unfortunatly I've discarded the Skullcrack of my opponent Turn 3 before playing a Tarmogoyf then Huntmaster but my opponent draw an other Skullcrack then a Path to exile to deal with my Tarmogoyf and kill the Huntmaster the turn after. I can't come back.
Round 3 :
I stabilize the board and start being aggressive at 8 life but my opponent had one Galvanic Blast and wait for the 2nd one to finish me.
The 2°) two Tarmogoyfs 5/6 end the game pretty quickly.
The 3°) I've tried to stop the aggressive start of my opponent with 2 Arcbound Ravager and 1 Etched Champion but can't balance the board and finish to die.
Round 4 :
vs Abzan Company
The first one is though, my opponent doesn't play the combo but the grindy style with 2 Kitchen Finks then Eternal Witness on Kitchen Finks, etc.
The 2°) a turn 3 Blood Moon closes the game pretty quickly while Rabblemaster floods the board.
The last one is an attrition war but my opponent finish with an empty board and an emtpy hand whereas I've got a Tarmogoyf, a Terminate in hand (in case of he found a Collective Company) and a Raging Ravine (in case of he finds a Path to Exile for my Tarmogoyf).
Round 5 :
At the first one my opponent is too slow and I find enough removals to deal with his board.
The 2°) is pretty easy, I mull 6 but have a Shatterstorm and Anger of the gods in hand.
It's a butchery.
Round 6 :
I win the first one thanks to a slow start of my opponent and 2 IoK + an unanswered Kalitas.
The 2°) I have to mull 5 to have some effective cards against Burn, unfortunatly, I can't earn enough life to finish the game.
The last one, my opponent keeps a hand full of creatures, not the best one against Jund.
However I've finished at 2 life when he dies.
Round 7 :
My opponent starts the game, discards my discard, kills my Dark Confidant and then play a first Dark Confidant (that I killed) then an other one which will stay on the board.
Too much CA, I can't balance the board or his hand.
At the 2°) an early Blood Moon (turn 4) makes conceed my opponent when he doesn't have any basic whereas I play a Rabblemaster the next turn.
For the last one, we have a very long and interesting game, I play a late Blood Moon to shut down his Quagmire and slow him down.
I deal with his Lingering Souls and keep a Tarmogoyf to protect my Chandra but he finishes me with 2 Siege Rhino thanks to the reach.
Round 8 :
vs Eldra Tron
The first one is very long but a Karn finishes the game by himself.
The 2°), Blood Moon is resolved but my opponent find a Expedition Map to find a Waste.
He plays some Eldrazi but just one each turn, which is not the best plan against my hand full of removals and Liliana.
The last one, I make some agressive mulligan to find Blood Moon which is played at my turn 3 when my opponent has 4 non-basic lands.
Round 9 :
vs UR Storm
Turn 1 discard to take off Baral, Turn 2 Tarmogoyf and the next turns, Electromancer and Baral die to my removals while my Tarmogoyf beat my opponent to death.
The 2°) he plays an Empty the Warrens, unfortunatly I've got Maelstrom Pulse.
However I don't have enough pressure and die to a Grapeshot.
The last one, I manage the hand of my opponent who finally plays 4 Ritual and an Empty the Warrens "all-in" style.
At the end of his turn, I play 2 Bolt and let him at 2 life.
Draw step : I find my last Bolt and finish him !
I personnaly finish at 6-3, my Affinity team mate fnishes at 4-5 (the deck was expected so a lot of hate).
As said at the beggining, my Humans team mate suffered during all the week-end and finished at 2-7 (with 5 Affinity in his losses).
Day 2, I play a side event :
2-1 vs Jeskaï Tempo
Round 2 :
2-1 vs Affinity
Round 3 :
2-1 vs UW Control
Round 4 :
0-2 vs Gruul and Loss
My feedbacks of this week-end :
- Blood Moon is really strong in the actual metagame and give you the possibility to play against our bad match up (Tron or Valakut)
- Rabblemaster is an incredible clock if unanswered
- never go to a large event without silver bullet against Affinity
My next GP in Lyon will be in February, at Lyon, I will keep the same list than the one played at Madrid.
Always so happy to play Jund midrange with the possibility to deal against all decks of the format.
