WA States – Top 8

Hello, readers!

  I have a placeholder thread up on MTGParadise, but I will be looking to post decklists and discussion from WA State Championships here first, then update it over there a few days later. The reason being that stuff is a lot easier to format on WordPress than it is on IPB, so I’ll need to dedicate probably my Labour Day Public Holiday to getting it up on MTGP.

 The Top 8, from memory (I was playing poker when the top 8 started, and only saw the top 4, so basically only have accurate knowledge of the top 4) was:

 Winner: Dion Clifford (Kithkin splash Bitterblossom)
Finalist: Shawn Rayson (Windbrisk White)
3rd/4th: Kin-Meng Chew (5 Colour Control)
3rd/4th: Greg Galbraith (Kithkin)
Top 8: John Malanzack (sorry, can’t spell that without reading his name off his decklist) Order of Whiteclay/Doran/Fulminator Mage combo
Top 8: Paul Jackson (5 Colour Control)
Top 8: *Craig Mofflin* (White Weenie)
Top 8: *Tancred Stain* (Red/White)

 I’ll update this when I get home and begin posting decklists.

 Until then!

States 09 – The Overview

Those of you who are not from these parts may think that this is awfully early to begin preparation for States, a tournament which to them is more than six months away. In Australia, we didn’t get States back when the United States and company did. Instead we get it now.

My teammates and I have picked our decks and hopefully I’ll be able to post them along with the rest of the top 8 (;)) after the event. I expect to be living in a sea of red decks.

States 09 – Searching for Scissors: UWr Reveillark

This deck looks like a lot of fun – I made a semi-miraculous comeback with it against a Bloom Razer deck playing with it on Magic Workstation…I know it’s not a huge achievement because Bloom Razer blows (cloud)goats, but still, any comeback is fine with me – any deck that can take a pounding and then perform the HBK Kip-up is favoured with me because it inspires confidence in the deck. Below is the first pass at the list.

4 Glen Elendra Archmage
4 Mulldrifter
3 Reveillark
2 Sower of Temptation
1 Knight-Captain of Eos

4 Mind Stone
4 Wrath of God
4 Cryptic Command
4 Path to Exile
4 Ajani Vengeant
1 Banefire

4 Vivid Creek
3 Vivid Meadow
4 Mystic Gate
3 Rugged Prairie
2 Cascade Bluffs
4 Reflecting Pool
3 Island
2 Plains

States 09 – Searching for Scissors: Jund Tokens

This is a Magic Online deck, so no Conflux. It’s a lot of fun to play, and people forget how much of a complete and utter blowout Torrent of Souls is. Torrent also combos well with Mycoloth. Just think about that. Untap, put a stack of saps into play, then they get +2/+0 and haste? I mean…HASTE? That’s so much damage that can be generated from a Mycoloth.

Nobody seems to be playing Faeries or 5c in the TP Room when i’m playing, so I haven’t had a chance to test against these decks, but it shows a lot of promise (though its untuned) in the matchups I have played. Below is the first draft list.

3 Torrent of Souls
4 Dragon Fodder
4 Makeshift Mannequin
4 Bitterblossom
4 Bone Splinters

2 Siege-Gang Commander
2 Mycoloth
4 Sprouting Thrinax
4 Marsh Flitter
4 Kitchen Finks

4 Vivid Marsh
3 Graven Cairns
4 Vivid Grove
4 Reflecting Pool
1 Fire-Lit Thicket
4 Savage Lands
3 Twilight Mire

Sideboard
3 Mind Shatter
4 Cloudthresher
4 Guttural Response
4 Magma Spray
