Results August 28, 2009

Fresh results are in! The holidays took its heaviest toll yet, only 10 people participated, with a lot of regulars missing. Hopefully we'll see more people show up come September. Low attendance means I will present you with a top 4 this time. Three well-known decks, and a new blink deck I concocted with a little gem from Ice Age as one of my uncommons! In case you don't get it: when you exile a reanimated or unearthed creature with Flickerwisp or Momentary Blink, it does return to play. So, I had a great time, even though we only had time for four games. It's also interesting to note that Astral Slide, Tortured Existence and MBC all finished outside the T4. We are adapting, we are... Enjoy!

  1. Wait, your unearth deck doesn't work.

    Unearthed creatures get removed from the game if they would leave play.

  2. Oh wait, I'm wrong, I'm googing it.

    Sorry, great site, big fan.

  3. Lol, it's not really intuitive, I must admit, but it's a hell of a trick ;)

    I would kindly recommend any doubters to read the last specific question at the Unearth wiki entry on the mothership.
