're no threat to us, but they could be a problem for Ravnica if enough of them got through.> Aggron looks at the portal for a long moment before continuing.
<Let's hurry. And don't break all the obelisks just yet.> Swiftly and with brutal precision, Aggron begins slaying zombies at a furious pace.
Play 1x Swamp
Use 3x Skyshroud Ranger to make 2x Forest and 1x Swamp
Discard 1x Nightshade Assassin to Mongrel 1, giving it +1/+1 and turning it white, and madness out the assassin. Reveal 4x Festering Goblin and kill off the Death Baron. Then kill the assassin with the tailblade. Next, discard a second assassin to the other mongrel, also giving it +1/+1 and turning it white, and also madnessing out the second assassin, which returns the first one from the graveyard to the field. Reveal the same four goblins again, twice, killing off the Skeletal Kathari and a Dregscape Zombie. Finally, use my boosted Mongrels to take down the two Zombie Outlanders.
Retracting my ruling from before based off the notation Red used. I am fairly certain he meant for the black swamp symbols by creatures to be indication of those creatures being in a general graveyard. I'm going with that.
A look of confusion crosses Gully's face as Aggron asks that not all of the obelisks be destroyed. She refocuses as she hears the roars of the new arrivals.
They will be crushed.
She thinks as she has her gloves light up with Mana. She makes another ball of Mana and has it burst into a group of ten beetles. She then gathers the remainder together and sends a wave of it out over her Insect army; the Insects in turn become the size of wolves. She sends four of the to the obelisk where no Zombies are, and another six towards where two Zombies are. The rest she has attack those right in front of her.
The description in game of Gully's actions indicate casting Beacon of Creation and Overrun. That's a total of 9 mana but you've indicated only 5 being tapped, probably just a small error.
There is only one portal and that's in the center at the top of the ziggurat. At the four corners of the ziggurat is an obelisk powering the center portal. These obelisks can be attacked.
Also, shame on you for not having your character up to date in our records. Send me a PM linking to the post when you picked up the spell so we can update the records.
If you've cast the previously two mentioned spells then that leaves you with two spells for the turn cycle which will allow you to send those two groups to attack the specified obelisks, 1 spell per group sent to a different zone.
As soon as those pieces are updated I'll continue with resolving the action.
While we're on the subject, all the zombies at the obelisks are dead.
The symbol blazes again as Cyouni infuses the spirit with mana, enough to almost double its strength.
Touching the tip of the flaming blade to the spirit's scythe, Cyouni draws a portion of the spirit's strength into the sword, tainting the flame black. The spirit's scythe slashes across the obelisk, followed swiftly by the black-flamed sword.
Three of the obelisks quickly crumpled under the combine assault from Cyouni's and Gully's creatures, sending out bursts of black mana towards the center portal causing it to triple in size while fluctuating erratically. All that remained was a lone strained obelisk showing signs of waning power by it's faint and flickering purple light...
<It doesn't matter if we close off this portal. Lou will just raise another hell-army and force his way back>.
Aggron already knows his decision. He knew it as soon as he knew this portal went to Grixis.
<There's only one real way to stop him. He'll be a menace to all Dominaria if we don't finish him.>
Aggron's muscles are tensing. He's been waiting for this since he learned about his feral side.
<Sorry, Gully, but I have to do this before I help you into the Golgari. This is bigger than both of us. Plus I have some unfinished business at home.>
Aggron's summons stream behind him; he turns to face the portal.
'll do what I can from the other side. I'll make sure it gets closed there too, and I'll hunt that bastard down and finish him, if I have to chase him over all five shards to do it. I've gotten back without a portal once; I can do it again.>
Aggron's vision goes white as he is blinded stepping through the portal. Immediately he knows something is very wrong. He felt the pull that was to be expected with traveling to another plane, yet this pull was not in one direction. Rather he felt the portal trying to pull him in two opposite directions racking him with pain. He had to decide soon, which pull would he follow...?
Give me a four sided roll to find out which direction Aggron is pulled.
Instincts kicked in as Aggron's mana formed into a protective bubble pushing him in only one direction. Within moments Aggron felt the pressure of the portal leave as he was thrown out...
Aggron moves over to another quest leaving Gully and Cyouni alone.
Cyouni and Gully found themselves alone as the portal flickered faintly growing translucent, the fourth obelisk seemed to be losing all of it's power trying to maintain a tenuous connection. One where the horde appeared to no longer be capable of traveling through the portal.
Gully she yells as Aggron passes through the Portal. She stretches her hand out towards the portal as he vanishes from sight. She drops to her knees as she realizes that he is gone; her beetles return to her side and stand ready to defend her. As Cyouni destroys the last obelisk she watches the portal.
Gully and Cyouni find their way through the sewers with ease and are soon met by the Boros clerk who looks past Cyouni expectantly before asking Gully with concern, "Where is your companion and who is this?"
Upon speaking Aggron's name she lowers her head, she seems lost in thought for a moment, but quickly breaks free. Shaking her head she looks to the Clerk again.
Aggron. He followed Lou, a demon from another Plane, into a Portal. Lou was the one causing the problems, and he was trying to make it look as though Rakdos was involved. Cyouni, Aggron and I closed the Portal. I don't know if either Lou or Aggron are alive, or for that matter where they are.
The clerk's face furrows in emotional pain at what he perceives to be a noble sacrifice on the part of Aggron saying, "If you were able to prevent the demon's plans then his sacrifice was not in vain..."
The clerk continued to think about the loss of Aggron as he looked over Gully's shoulder down into the sewers, he had the faintest illusion that maybe just maybe the lizard would come back out...
