Quote from dragonDid monogreen t8? I beat that, but I don't remember it t8ing. I think Solar Pox, Dragonstorm, Glare, Glare, and UW...then I don't know.
And Julian's a house. He's beat me in every sanctioned match I've ever played vs. him.
Quote from DJ SamuraiTo confirm, the finals of FL States was a Glare Mirror, and one of my friends from a draft group at the University of Florida was on the losing end of it. He admits it was a legitimate loss with bad plays by him. Two quotes sum it up: "He has Pendelhaven?!" and "He has Vitu-Ghazi?!"
His opponent legitimately had them in play, btw.
Knute (my friend) thought the Pendelaven was a Forest, so he attacks with a Selesnya Guildmage (not enough mana to pump it) and it runs into what becomes a 2/3 saproling. This elicits the first quote. The second quote was spewed when his opponent had no blockers. Knute swings (not for lethal) and runs into a fresh-out-of-the-Vitu-Ghazi-oven saproling.
On the bright side, he went 7-2 and got in as the 8th seed. In the quarters he plays against what I think is his worst matchup - Dragonstorm. The same guy he played beat him 2-0 in the Swiss. At any rate, he wins game 1 (Hey, thanks for the three 2/2s, I'll Devouring Light your Hunted Dragon), then game 2 sides in his only copy of Ivory Mask. Turn 3, he drops the Ivory Mask, THE TURN BEFORE HIS OPPONENT WOULD HAVE GONE OFF.
And that's how you beat Dragonstorm. Render the Hellkites useless.
If someone could fill in the blanks here, that'd be great:
3rd-8th: Dragonstorm, U/W Control, (four unknowns)
I went 2-3 before dropping with Karsten-Bot. Let it be known that I fail at sideboarding.
