Quote from bobthefunny »We've all seen the crazy plays thread, or gotten to brag about a cool winning board state... But a lot of these flash in the can moments can simply vanish into the obscurity without really being memorable. Your big creature finish might just vanish into obscurity with other similar overrun stories.
What moments are truly memorable to you?
Here are a few of mine to get things started:
I was playing Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. This was early in construction, so I was often taking votes on cards to add/remove. One player voted in The Hive. In the subsequent game, I managed to cast The Hive, and thanks to Bludgeon Brawl equipped the hive onto its own wasp token, and beat people up with a wasp bludgeoning people with it's own hive.Another Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient game, I managed to put a Gauntlet of Might onto a Prototype Portal, but unfortunately had no cards in hand, so was unable to do anything with my massive amounts of mana, except make more and more Gauntlet of Might tokens. Finally, about 17 Gauntlets of Might later I drew a Power Matrix, and was able to start one-shotting people with a very scary commander.Finally, the most infamous one was me piloting my Chainer, Dementia Master deck, and having a very rough time, getting beat down by pretty much everybody. Down to 5 life, with no cards in hand, an opponent decides to take pity and spare me going "I'll give him one more turn, what's the worst that could happen?" One lucky topdeck, and and I rebuild an insane board presence, drain everyone for 20+ life, (but fail to kill anyone), and it takes all 3 players conspiring together to make a Commander large enough and unblockable to kill me. Since then "One more turn, what's the worst that could happen" has become a lasting catch-phrase at my LGS, for several years now.
So what are YOUR truly lasting memorable stories?

Quote from bobthefunnyYup. It doesn't change zones. It simply holds a sign up saying "I'm not here!" if anything comes looking for it.

Quote from hyalopterouslemur »The one I always tell more than any is when I had out Doubling Season and Purphoros, God of the Forge. Animar player brings out Blightsteel Colossus. I then play Artifact Mutation.
For those who don't understand, there's no clause requiring the target of Artifact Mutation to be destroyed. So, I still get the 12 saprolings = 12 Purph triggers = 48 damage to everyone else.

Quote from Jivanmukta »Story 1: Playing Oona. There's a magmatic force in play. I'm at 10. Mill everyone out. Forget there's an extra player than usual. Upkeep comes before draw.
Story 2: Stigma lasher is a bad card and Oloro hates it.
Quote from cryogen »Didn't you do something similar with Prototype Portal in my cube, except with Sol Rings? Or was this at Wildfire's house? I feel like I remember this.

Quote from papa_funk »Not running a card because you wouldn't have fun with it is the most important reason not to run a card.

Quote from Jivanmukta »Story 2: Stigma lasher is a bad card and Oloro hates it.AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
For those not on the inside joke - The mods played together, and I played a turn 2 Stigma Lasher while Jiv was playing Oloro, and apparently had no answers to it.
