*Lily and Aether Vial nonbo so I chose Lily over Vial.
Test vs R/g Satyr, 0-1.
Satyrs are pretty limited in selection. I'm surprised he could jam the 20 minimum into his deck!
I was winning but then our TO announced registration... My test partner wouldn't budge so I just scooped.
Round 1 vs B Zombies, 2-0.
SB: +3 Leyline of the Void, +1 Spreading Seas. -4 Ancestral Visions.
In game 1, I saw graveyard recursion. Leylines arrived too late in game 2 to make a difference.
Round 2 vs B/w Knights, 2-0.
He didn't like my True-Name Nemesis (held off his army) or my Underground Seas (too expensive.)
Round 3 vs (Dason Lee) B/w Vampires, 1-2.
I named this opponent b/c of all 4 black decks I've faced tonight, Dason was the smartest since he also ran 4 Witch's Vengeance. Kudos!
He seemed to think Ancestral Visions was broken. I disagree since it left modern's ban list. I would run Ponder instead, if I could, *shrugs*
Even though I lost, I felt my deck was more consistent due to all the card draw (Ancestral Visions, Benthic Biomancer, Brainstorm, Silvergil Adept.)
Round 4 vs B/w Vampires, 2-0.
Post match, I gave him budget card advice, such as:
-add 4 Evolving Wilds, 4 Terramorphic Expanse, 1 Plains. His deck only had 4 Godless Shrine to cast his 4 white cards.
-add 4 Sign in Blood. It's a cheap cantrip that can trim 1-2 lands from your build. His deck also gains life.
After round 4, there were no undefeated players. There were four 3-1's.
-1st tiebreaker criteria: we all defeated each another so we all had no superior opponents.
-2nd tiebreaker criteria: I finished w/a game record of 7-2.
Since I had the best game record of the 3-1's, I got the nod into 1st place.
