A quick mini-report:

No sleep, a little alcohol, and some playtesting leads to round one.

Dragon: Game one, he tries to Animate the Dragon. I say no, and pound face with
dreadnoughts. Game two, he tries to Animate the Dragon. I say no and drop Ground
Seal. He has no realistic answers.

TnT (Orlove): Game one, he gets first turn Survival of the Fittest, and I can't
keep up. Game two, he gets Duplicant Recursion set up before I can drop Ground
Seal, and I scoop up the cards.

Sligh: Game one I force his Ruby and he never deals me any damage. Game two I
almost lose to Ankh damage, but he took the Crypt bait allowing me to win with

Matrix (Keeper without red): Game one I see an awesome Demonic Tutor and some
nice bb duals. I think there might have been a Swords, but it was over too
quick. Game two he keeps a hand with multiple wastes and LoA, but he can't find
colored mana and I'm going nuts with a basic forest (APAC Japan, baybee) and an

Ur Fish: Game one, he misses the opportunity to Drake one of my spells, so I
kill him. Game two, he misses the opportunity to Drake one of my spells, but I
apparently had mana for it and just didn't remember. Regardless, Phage > all.

Top Eight, Samite Healer with Keeper: Game one he has all the answers like a
good control player. Game two he has all the wrong answers, and I manage to hold
back all three moxen to surprise him with Gigapede later. Unfortunately, his
Brainstorm mised him Mana Drain this turn, with Decree on top. I lost.

The list was as follows, and as I was just testing some junk out, it will be
changing somewhat radically soon.

4x Survival of the Fittest
4x Illusionary Mask
4x Brainstorm
4x Force of Will
4x Duress
4x Volrath's Shapeshifter
4x Phyrexian Dreadnought
3x Birds of Paradise
3x Quirion Ranger
1x Phage the Untouchable
1x Squee, Goblin Nabob
1x Gigapede
1x Psychatog
1x Ancestral Recall
1x Time Walk
1x Mox Emerald
1x Mox Jet
1x Mox Sapphire
1x Black Lotus
4x Wooded Foothills
2x Windswept Heath
4x Bayou
4x Tropical Island
2x Forest

4x Stifle
4x Xantid Swarm
2x Ground Seal
2x Naturalize
1x Gaea's Blessing (I couldn't find Ground Seal #3 before the tourney)
1x Withered Wretch
1x Gilded Drake

Hopefully my changes tonight will make for victory tomorrow.
