So apparently no one’s figured out how to draft Dragon’s Maze yet because everyone did pretty horrible tonight. I went 2-2, and one of those wins was from a draw that went to turns. Remind me to never play Esper again.
After the draft I ended up in a 4-way EDH match playing my Ghave against a Vorel, Exava and a Hanna. Vorel got scary real quick, but Hanna was dishing out boardwipes like it was his job. Meanwhile I’m over here diddling around with my tokens until I pump up Beastmaster Ascension and drop a Grave Pact and no one could stop me at that point and I ran away with the game.
Extort was dominating, as expected. Poor Izzet and Dimir players got wrecked though. This is going to be a fun environment to draft in though.
You couldn’t pay me to play this in constructed. The only thing I think this would be good for is a Rhys the Redeemed EDH deck.
And I thought the Izzet one was disappointing…
It’s a mockup like the last few we’re (which turned out to be right), but I hope this one isn’t true.
Story-wise, it wouldn’t make sense. Her creatures are totally destructible and she is touted to make her own repeatedly!
To me this is the most fun champion to come out from the Dragon’s Maze spoilers so far, but I’m still holding out for a cool Tajic though.
First one I managed to get up to 31 life and get him down to 5 through Extort, but he ended up throwing Forced Adaptation on a Simic Manipulator and stole 8 of my Extort creatures and ended up beating me with sheer board presence.
The second really bad one I just happened to somehow draw into 11 lands in a row, even though I was only running 18 in a 40-card deck. It was a shitshow.
I didn’t make it to Top 4, but besides those two matches I didn’t do too bad tonight. Also, Mortus Strider is way fun with Extort.
