Report

 A friend & I were working on our new Extended decks (due to the rotation).  
I like the new rotation because of one reason I get to play all of my old Type 2
decks again.  
I have always been a big fan of Rebels and a bigger fan of counter Rebels ever
since Kamiel Cornelissen took 2nd. at Chicago Pro-Tour 2001, losing to Kai Budde
wax/wane Rebels.
 
 So Saturday was Type 1 and I figured what the hell, let's see what Rebels can
do in Type 1.  

1st. Rd. (Parfait) I win, 2-0 Rebels were just to fast for him.  

2nd. Rd. (Nether Void) I win, 2-0 Nether Void hurts him more than it does me,
since I never have to cast a Rebel other than the first one.

3rd. Rd. (Earthcraft) I win, 2-1 I lost one game because he was able to play his
combo with no counter in my hand to be able to stop it.

4th. Rd. (B/G Butter knives).  I lost, 2-0 Pernicious Deed & black creatures
that are pro-white just completly shut down my good old Rebel deck.

I make it to top 4.  First place seat, and guess who I play? B/G Butter Knives,
I lose again 2-1.  Congradulations to username (ump) for winning the tournament.
After the tournament ump gives me some advice and tells me to put in Meddling
Mages.


 Sundays tournament I make a few adjustments, I put the Meddling Mages like ump
told me, and I let my friend Ricky use my deck cause I was not able to play.

1st. Rd. (Parfait) He wins 2-0, the same exact way I won on Sat.

2nd. Rd. (Nether Void) He wins 2-1 the same exact way I won on Sat.

3rd. Rd. (Nether Void) He wins 2-0 same as 2nd. Rd.

4th. Rd. (Illusionary Mask) they decide to draw to lock in top 4.

He makes top four. First place seat and gets matched up with OSE, he wins 2-1.
Next he plays against Nether Void, his opponent offers him a draw and more of
the prize money  (store credit) $50.00 and leaving Nether Void $34.00 credit.

So Counter Rebels wins the tournament. Here is my deck list, now remeber the
deck started out as an Extended deck so I am missing a lot of type 1 stuff. My
sideboard was not really good at all, it was last min throw-ins.
