May 22nd 2016 FNM

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.
