Ok kids, the mother of dragons with the little dragonises -is that a word?- are away for the weekend... so I would have the time to playtest this awful decks, in a long sit tomorrow night, not like other lazy judges who cant even beat that dumb AI and go on vacations in the middle of their duty leaving theirs truly biting their nails... I don´t wanna point names lets just call that awfull Judge B.Barney or Black B. for short.

So I have already build this decks and I must say they are indeed fun to play... and for most cases not a deck I have tried to build in the past... So I can see that there is a learning curve to play this things right. My first thoughts on these builds after a few runs vs the ia are:

BZZT deck is a piece of work once you got Orrey down but with all those instant on the graveyard Disciple or at least a Rise from tides could have been an alt wincon.

Nomad Displacing walls to make big lands is as wacky as it gets and it has some tools I love to play with. COUNTERS and DISCIPLE...
but that thing when you wanna replay a land... seems awful to me on a control deck.. the same way that you are making your lands removal targets..

Flaky´s deck tried that same path as a way to over break the desert but on a midrange shell with landfall value which I think was the best way to exploit a LAND, the build is doing quite ok on my first runs.

Mine indeed has Hagra as a win but mostly as an stabilizer to get to the late game were you can drop big nasty threats but mainly landfall is the game plan, making clues, ramping, gaining life and building a big Ribbons to the face.

Ok this time I will use the Cucho Unique Trials System or C.U.T.S for short.

PD: Soup will you be Judging this time?

Cucho I hear on the land bouncing issue with my deck- it's something I play carefully with, and a big part of the reason I added more offense so it's not trying to be pure draw go. But I get that it's weird and it takes practice to figure out. I seem to be allergic to building straightforward decks you can just pick up and win with. I'll get it one of these days.

Ok I think I will begging whit the CUTS
So here is how its going to be
1. 3 Rounds with each deck then we go to sudden death style until we have one winner
2. Points will be awarded for:
- Fun
- Record
- Desert breakage
- Extra points for the best plays and games during the trials
- Fringe points as it goes for wacky iteractions never seen before
- Cucho special points for any sort of bribe

Lets get this going

we got good mana ;)
CENSOR!! a Nissa of the elements!
and save 2 counters 2 more PW on the GY

On the play Vs R33 Rocha freire wearing that ugly Gideon avatar
Free mull onto a 2 lander with two Glory-Bound Initiate
he plays 1CMC Gid and puts him wings... we draw Aether Tradewinds attack with the initiate and hold for his turn
Ok we bounce his Gid.. he replays it.. but we got 2 counters and just one blue source lets..
so we cast the wall and make a manland -mistake I shouldn't have done this lets hope this doesent end bad-
*this guy must hate me coz Im taking so long to play...
Censor another wings and draw a dual land YAY!! this game is looked
so we attack with both ours initiates force him to block hes got no board just 2 mana and concedes
LOVING THOSE INITIATES ;)
2-0

Vs r20 K-Kun Izzet
we draw a 6 land to a 6 land and to a 5 cards with good mana and one Initiate lets roll!
He kills our Initiates - we let him- and then we drop Kefnet the useless... lets see if he is worthy
Ups he drops Dynabolt.... we got one counter... and flooding
Ok big Control skills here!
we play this thing like a champ.. we bounce his dynabolt then Kefnet the BOSS starts drawing cards, we even bounce a desert to enable his attack .. opponent Panics and starts casting every burn spell hes got, we counter the good ones and drop big Jace hold a counter and Commit just in case...
Opponet makes a big play to kill Jace with fall of the titans we say NO!
he rage quits!
3-0!

Yes Cucho! I'm telling you, Initiate is secret control tech!

Flaky I'm building yours now. Ramp looks suspect, didn't you learn from Barney's no-basics ramp debacle?

One downside to the Hammer: when you put it on advocate and proceed to pump by returning your 6th land. Oops.

Go, Cucho, Go!

@Nomad: 11 Basics and 5 ramp cards doesn't seem too bad, even with the Wilds. The ramp is mainly to get the midrange threats online before the game is over, not to power out a T6 Ulamog. My biggest issue with the deck has been getting unplayable start hands because of drawing too many of one color/colorless and none of the other. It might be a good idea to go lite on the Nissa's fetches. Like, intentionally leave a forest in the deck for Wilds activation rather than putting it in hand if you are getting low on basics.

Lol @ the Hammer/Advocate misinteraction. I would totally do something like that, too. Prolly twice!

Edit: Yah! Zap the Thermos! And I agree, Thermo is a great build around card. If I did a round using it, should I make it a 2HG round?
Edit2: Who plays Fevered Visions against an opponent with no threats and 13 lands down?

Oh, snap. I must have hit quote instead of edit. Oops.

Or even a Gift for a Nissa's. It's the 3 Nissa's/6 Forest ratio that bugs me.

Ok so sudden death

lets add the points so far
Cucho
Flaky
Nomad
Bzzt those +1 fringe points really levels things
---

So lets continue with Nomad
Vs Feom arab R31 Sultai Ramp
We got good mana, counters and that wacky displacer wall combo on hand
he ramps to 7 mana on t4 but we now got our counters online lets play this smart.
Big Lily is down ;)
... we got bounce so we cast Gid .... big pull from tomorrow bite us in the ass...
we start swinging with GId and hold a counter
we got him at 2 but we are struggling with mana just two duals and we heavy mana requirements
those 2 last points are going to be hard to pull but our walls are holding the castle
fatal push... is huge against our manlands
we need more draw power here
So we sweept each other to the grownd he finally is card less -after 2 huge pulls- we drop INITIATE, and pass he attacks and then tries to sweep the board for the 5th time so we counter, he is at 5 but we can swing just for 4, we draw Aether Tradewinds bounce his guy and our desert FTW!!
AMAZING!
4-0

Next BZZT Vs CK 77 R38 same boros enchantments deck from before
we got shock and bounce... lets roll
he T1 Expedition envoy
we shock it
BOUNCE IS HUGE in this matchup :evil:
we kill lots of his creatures... for real!
but he is holding lots of cards and we are going dry
we cast Memory and draw Orrery and vortex!
and playing this like a champ!
Uops... he´s got Hazzoret... yikes!
ok I misplay a desert but got him at 1 so im counting this as a win coz I brainfarted
2-2

Me next!
Vs Rank 38 Alex 1500... that many Alex before him?...
ok Boros good stuff
I need double Black in a rush!
SWEEPER!!!
Ramp and hold Ulamog for the goodies :evil:
Kill big Gid but got declared in stone
this is top deck time!
I hold a sweeper to see if he overreaches before I sweep the board again hes at 18 im at 15 but with Hagra online
I got a zombi champ down and hes got copter and Heart of Kiran but no pilots
Ok he drops Chandra TOD
and we respond with Sandwurm!!
things were going great but he drops Hazoret... the life gain is going to matter big time here
he tops deck collective effort and kill me sandwurm swings and leaves me at 10 but with a 1 turn worth of life...
I top deck Cut and Ribbons for 13
3-1

Flaky next... how many Hours have I played so far?... IDK I guess I need one more beer and change the music
Psycho Killer!! it reminds me of Flaky I dont know why...


Ok Vs R40 Boros Aggro MaKaLa 76... I´m not buying that there are 75 more MaKaLas on Duels...
T1 Expedition envoy
we got removal but our life is going down fast
We Got into a staring contest
We got Rhonas, Mina and Denn and Embodiment of Fury + two Evolving wilds on board but we are at 7 he is at 17 so we can´t just attack so we wait and this was our plan: Next turn attack with everyone +4 elementals whit trample and swing for 9999!
He´s got just one blocker down but sitting in a lot of red mana and has already cast some hasty threats
Next turn he has no problem in playing Glorybringer...coz he is not stuck building this silly decks and crush our hopes and dreams

3-2 Eliminated!

Ok I´m gonna eat something

We got destroyed by a mono green piece of crap
2-3
Eliminated

Nomad Next

We won with a combination of Displacer Gerahulk and counters! - did you consider reflector mage here, he could be huge!
5-0

Cucho Last!

it was grixis control
but we got tools
Double sandwurm for instance
4-1

Finals are on
Nomad First
Vs R11 M1st3r J
playing colorless... jank

6-1

me first
Vs R40 Danno 029 and it appears to be a Mardu vehicles...
this is getting intense.
Copter and Harvester are killing me
2 sweepers
and a grasp on Hazoret!!
and Sandwurm NOICE
Opponent concedes
7-1

Nomad now
VS R40 Player
Orzhov zombos...
this time we got perfect mana and gid... lets see
we got Jace down just after we destroy his board
Gearhulk, Initiate and wall are enough to make our opponent quit!
7-1

... damn another round..what I was thinking...
me first
vs R40 Johnny Gepp
BlackDrazzi aggro it seems
damn I got him with just 2 cards and a puny board.. but the game crashed and I´m tired... dont know If I got more time to play tomorrow I don´t think so.

Yeah, I thought about mage, just felt like I had a good enough defensive game and enough bounce already and I could incapacitate their creatures with Displacer if necessary. Went with the Tradewinds instead and I've been happy with that choice.

Tradewinds works great here :D
Edith: Except when you gotta replay a land... I think tradewinds could work better with more board presence

I just found out that I haven't been judging anything so far this round! What the fudge? I thought I was on top of this! I left myself with one job to do and I couldn't even do that. I'm very disappointed in me. In fact, I'm seriously thinking of sending myself to my room without supper.

What's the judgemental deadline, here? Do I have time to try and get some judging done this coming week? I would have to do a stripped down judging based on the sISSY system.
