After see how well this new mask deck did @ gencon, please let's stay on
subject, I decided to give this funky Mask+Feb deck a spin. I love to test my
playing skills with the strange and bazaar, Yes I'm the guy that plays ABM.

After Thursday night testing with my pal Rj with some Hulk vs. Coal, and some
number of others I asked if I can use his Masks, which is just about all I was
missing for the deck. Due to the fact that he was going to a SCub game and
would't make the event this weekend he allowed me to use what I was missing.

Round 1 Vs Frank /w U/b Tog:
Game  1:
My turn one duress shows me a Yag Will, Traumatize some other poor T1 Cards :\ I
get Traumatized after beating him to 4 with 2 '12/12's' on the board that leads
us to
Game 2:
I keep a slow hand and I Mask to a Dreadnought, he casts an upheaval which I let
resolve since I had 2 birds and he was down to topdecking. Three turns later
that's game.

He was a cool guy but is, as I could tell, very new to the T1 scene and I hope I
pointed him in the right direction with his deck to get some Forces and Ak to
turn his deck into a unpowerd hulkish deck.

Round 2 Vs Emmanuel /w WW
Game 1:
With a turn one Mom and turn 2 White knight of types, the only thing that I was
scared of was a StoP or Disenchant. His clock was a tad slow. Beating me to 9
before I turn it around and get a pair of Dreadnoughts.
Game 2:
I see him side in a lot of cards and I start to 2nd guess myself with my side
options. This games ends just like the first. I get beat to 13 and turn Super

Round 3 Vs Rob /w Sui
Game 1:
He gets a early Necro but it wasn't enough to contend with the 12/12's that is
dished up.
Game 2:
This is the longest game I played up to this point in the day. He mulls to 6.
I'm able to jump out a head on him with number of theats. Then turn 4 he plays a
Disk!! This is the house vs my deck and having not seen any Artifacts game 1 I
didn't bring in my Monkeys :\ So he blows up the world about which sets me back
a step.
I set up another Survival and get some of the 'jank' creatures out. I trade my
Shifter for his Gator. He plays ANOTHER disk! eek god what luck! I finally am
able to get my Tradewind online and I force him to blow the disk. I respond with
trying to return my Shifter that I traded with the 'wind rider he responds by
edicting his own Shifter. I survival for the last creature in my deck, Mr.
Dreadnought but without a shifter or a mask this is a very dead card, so I go
aggro with the Gigapede. He is only able to deal with it 3 times before it gets
in for the win.

Round 4 Vs Alan /w Stacker 2.74
Game 1:
I get 'locked down and taken out' the wires and spheres really hurt coal. That
is what sideboards are for :rock:
Game 2:
He runs out of steam and get the beat down hardcore from my broke ass hand with
Lotus Recall Mask Mox etc.
Game 3:
This is where I learn the power of the mighty Tree>Water. He plays a turn 1
Blood Moon, I respond and fetch for my island, then Recall my self not drawing a
freeking blue card, I think about conceding at this point but I say wtf I can
come back. Then he plays turn 2 Cap, taking my Emerald Lotus and a Mask.
Given this point in the game it's almost not a reality for me to comeback unless
I draw in to my mask and get some birds down.
And that's what I do, a long drawnout game ends up him running out of steam and
me drawing the right cards at the right time to bust myself out of that mean

On to Top 4:
Round 6 Vs Rob /w Sui, yet again:
Game 1:
Not much to report. He has 0 main deck answers for my threats.
Game 2:
I keep a sub-par hand and get raped when he plays a Cabal Thearby Naming
Illusionary Mask pulling the 2 Masks I had, and leaving me with some phat that I
can't cast, the Shade comes in for the beats after a number of Hymns and
Game 3:
Another crazy I win hand, Turn 1 Mask Turn 2 Phat too many threats not enough
answers on his side.

Round 6 Vs Steve /w 'Cd Gro' or 'The Worst Gro deck ever!1!'
Game 1:
He goes turn 1 Mongrel Turn 2 Werebear, playing a Mage.... I will quote word for
word what was sayed here...
Steve: I'll Play Meddling Mage Naming Mask
Me: Naming?
Steve: Mask
Me: So you're naming Mask yes?
Steve: Yes
The next turn I play a Illusionary Mask, he says ' you can't play that' I show
him what he named with the Mage. The game is over shortly. The '12/12's' come in
for the win.

Game 2:
With him being very pissed for me holding him to what he named with the mages he
comes out with a fury and brings me to 12 with one swing, OUcH. I get the Engine
going and beat him after a counter war over a Shifter that ends up in my favor.

I win the whole thing and and up with 32$ not bad at all.
