Playing Magic in a bar is something of an unusual experience, in particular if you haven't been in that bar before. It's not uncommon that random people get very interested, or that someone familiar with the game walks by and start talking. This evening there were three slightly intoxicated ladies in their late 40s that stumbled by. All very polite though.
Michael had also brought a friend of his, Andreas, who just built his deck the day before. There were Sinkholes and Serendibs, combined with lots of random sweet cards.
|That's a Juggernaut with Unholy Strength, and Andreas do have the Boomerang for the Serendib.|
Michael himself played an aggresive pile with sets of Berserks and Giant Growths, combined with lots of fliers and Juzam. He had a full set of birds and and a few Old Men of the Sea as well, with at least two of the birds from Alpha (with the awesome '//' in the text box). My favorite play against him was probably when we both were at fairly low life total, and Michael dropped a Serendib and Juzam. I could transmute in Forcefield during my turn, and his djinn and efreet killed him just before he could win.
I'm actually not very sure which of our three decks that preformed best during the evening, all three of them felt very stable, and the games were generally tight and interesting.
|That's a very nice binder btw.|
