Magical Tuesday (Because i was sick) 2.17.2015

Welcome to this edition of Magical Monday Tuesday, i was under the weather yesterday and my head was screaming. But lets talk about magic.

This weekend was solid one for the Gurobo family. The wife took down the FNM draft with a sweet mono black deck. The shop was drafting M15 btw, a format that i really think is a fun draft format with a lot of different decks available to good drafters. Remmie, the son, drafted a sweet deck as dropping a match to blue fliers a theme that will run through weekend.

Saturday, was Fate Reforged Gameday. I had planed to use the artifact agro deck but Remmie decided that he wanted to use it so i moved over to the red/white burn list i have been playing/writing about for a while now. And the wife took the temur deck i have been working on for her.

Thankfully there were enough people that we didn’t have to face off right away, in fact the wife and boy didn’t have to play each other until the simi-finials, where the wife took the boy down and proceeded to take down the tournament.

Sunday was our Store Vs Store match with Midnight Games in Hutchinson, an event that had slipped my mind until Saturday. Groan…. I was already starting to notice that bug that took me down Monday. But we pushed on. Wish the wife would have came along, her hot streak might have carried over for one more event as it was we got rolled instead.

I ended up drafting a 2-2-0 deck, either taking a fast 2 games or a punishing game 3. But i think my deck was build wrong until the third match were i cut a land for a 6 mana spell. I had the mardu agro deck and i thought i would win with my curve just being super low and attacking as often as possible, but 17 lands and 3 4 casting costing spells was just not enough power for when the game went long. And drawing the 5th land plus was a death-nail. But cutting a land and adding in the red uncommon dragon gave me some possible end game. But really all it did was get countered one game but it did clear the counter out for my red siege which i decided is amazing.

So other then getting sick and some family drama it was a really fun weekend of family magic fun.
