It’s that time of the week again saltlings, FNM! The events held by Jack’s on Queen were standard and modern. As my standard deck isn’t quite finished yet I decided to play in the modern event with my Orhzov Eldrazi.
Round 1; Win in 3 vs W/U Humans
Game one I got ran over, token generator after token generator and I never got any sort of removal. There were just so many wheenies I could not deal with them. Game two I managed to ramp pretty hard with Eldrazi Temple and Blight Herder. I dropped Kozilek, the Great Distortion on turn seven and my opponent scooped. Game three my opening hand consisted of two Inquisition of Kozilek and a Duress. I picked my opponents’ hand clean of all threats and then it was just a grind from then on out.
Round 2; Win in 3 vs Seismic Assault
This deck was a complete riot. Game one I managed to smash through the Blood Moon and managed to reduce my opponents’ life to zero. Game two I got comboed out by Seismic Assault, Dakmor Salvage, and The Gitrog Monster, it was awesome! Game three I removed my opponents’ hand via Inquisition and Duress to make sure I did not get comboed again.
Round 3; Win in 3 vs Grixis Control
Game one I got widdled down by Lightning Bolt after Lightning Bolt, the only damage my opponent took was from the fetches and shock lands they used. Game two I brought in Surgical Extraction to removal all targets for Snapcaster Mage. I picked my opponent do death via spirit tokens from Lingering Souls. Game three was very close, and a great match. But my combination of cheap removal and vast graveyard hate managed to get me the win.
Round 4; Win in 2 vs Thopter Foundry
Once WotC announced the unbanning of Sword of the Meek it was well known the Thopter Foundry deck would make a grand reappearance. Game one my opponent never drew into a single copy of Foundry, and just drew land after land. Game two, I managed to Duress a Foundry out of my opponents’ hand on turn one, and then Extract it so I pulled his win condition out of his library. My opponent extended the hand and that was it!
That is two weeks in a row I have gone 4-0 at a modern FNM. I’m really enjoying playing this deck. I am in the process of putting together a U/W Control Spirit deck for standard.
Until next time! Stay salty my friends.
