A Magical Huffalump Resides Here: My first 3-0 win at FNM

A Magical Huffalump Resides Here

My name is Ed, I am a programmer. Just another dude with another blog. I like MTG, Open Source (more towards FREE software). I like sports, and eventually I hope to do business and do good for the world in general. This blog is gonna be about Magic The Gathering. Decklists and snippets will be posted here. It may lead somewhere or nowhere, as with all things arcane, that was bloody obvious =)

My first 3-0 win at FNM

So I finally manage to win three rounds at the FNM at SGCards.

 But it was with Naya Humans/Blitz

 It was weird. I only played Humans because I was late and wanted to have quick games.

 Else normally I will play my home brewed LD deck.

 I normally lose with that =) and now with Humans I 3-0 .... maybe I should have tried harder to get the farseeks =P

 Anyways here is the promo:


First round was the mirror 2-1, I think I got lucky

Second round was a Junk Rites. I think I got lucky, I was too fast too furious. 2-0

Third round was either Junk or Bant. Yes thats not saying much =P Anyways 2-0. Again it was the speed. I did'nt use the sideboard. Most times I just depended on the luck of the draw.

In my first round I suspect sideboarding played against my opponent. In my second round, my opponent was mostly land screwed, it helped that I zapped his Pilgrim and he did not draw vault of the archAngel.

In my last round, apparently my opponent had a deadly hand. My friend told me i was lucky as my opponent was land screwed. Tho he added that my opponent misplayed, he had a think twice that should have helped him. I pointed out that I could have ended the game a full turn earlier (but did not due to sloppy play - I did not calculate if the combat math was lethal, but play a safe attack - tho a alpha attack would have ended it) and that he did think twice in the end but it was to no avail.

Overall I think the Naya Blitz deck is still valid, but a prepared opponent should have no problems. How to play the deck? if you are holding back you are playing it wrong =P This deck rewards reckless play heh, my kinda deck really. The only grouse I have is that I am just netdecking, home brew just feels more rewarding. =P

So I am not really sure what to play next week......if i hopebrew I have to eke out my wins and will likely lose, a netdeck is already tuned heavily so its more of a matter of keeping tight play.

Ah well. I really need to play tighter.
