Generally I don't but unfortunately, if I am at 11 life and have a 9/9 coming at me that I cannot block, well staying in game is not exactly favorable. Now being at 11 instead of 2 is a little more favorable.Quote from Schreckstoff »Just don't make it easier for the person winning by scooping.
What is really not favorable Is playing Evil Adam. We can have 4 players, 3 (focusing Adam) and Adam, and we still lose 90% of the games we play against him. (And he claims derevi is casual. Sure he has one win con (Attacking) but when you can control the table, have 500+ Pegasus, squirrels or 4/4 angels, i don;t care that your only win con is attacking, YOU CAN AFFORD IT!
That is however why I like my dragons, they can actually squabble with him now and his win rate is slowly dropping against me. (And then you have combo decks we see now and then, that win within a few turns, which kills the fun of EDH, I was on the side where I would win in a few turns, and i took that deck apart, constant turn 4 wins was okay for competitive play. not casual.)
