I don't feel like doing a full FNM report this week, so you guys get the abbreviated version.
1) We had three new players, including Emily, a girl about Kaylyn's age. Mike claims that other store owners don't believe him when he talks about the player make-up and gender percentages at his FNM. XD
2) I got second.
3) First match, I went 1-1 against Judge-Jeff's BW Rebels/Enduring Renewal deck (a VERY interesting deck, by the way!). He expressed surprise over how many Enduring Renewals he landed in draft, and I admitted that it was such a build-around-me card that I honestly hadn't expected it to be good in draft. I guess I didn't consider the large number of vanishing and CIP-echo creatures in the environment. >_> Second game, I beat him on the fifth turn of overtime. Start of overtime: He had just cleared the board with a Magus of the Disk, I had a post-Disk Scryb Ranger, he had that black tapping Rebel, he was at six life and I was at something like 10.
Turn 1 (mine): I comment, "This looks like it's going to tie." He shrugs, "Maybe. Your deck seems to have a lot of answers to a situation like this." I look at the card I had just drawn and put down... a Pendelhaven. Jeff: "Like that one." He taps Scryb. I return a forest to hand, untap her, attack and use Pendelhaven to boost her, bringing him to 4.
Turn 2 (his): He doesn't draw an answer, and passes the turn.
Turn 3 (mine): Repeat of turn 1. He's at 2.
Turn 4 (his): Repeat of turn 2.
Turn 5 (mine): I win the game through the combo of Pendelhaven and Scryb Ranger.
4) Second match, I went 2-0 against Kaylyn's GW aggro. It was a Silhanna Ledgewalker family fued! Kaylyn actually started attacking, and one game nearly tromped me with a Griffin Guided Ledgewalker.
5) Third match, I went 2-1 against a RW CIP/Land Destruction deck. First game I one very quickly. Second game he killed my only early creature and retarded my land development. Third game I sided in my own land destruction... the interesting thing about G Land Destruction vs. RW Land Destruction? Green also has mana accel, and some of its land destruction doubles as accel, so it bounces back from losing land faster (I started that game on a one-Forest land). Also: I killed him with a 10/10 Scryb Ranger. The last few turns of my game go like this:
My turn: I shrug, declare, "I'm going to set myself up for massive card disadvantage here, and do this." I put Blanchwood Armor on a Moldervine Cloaked Scryb Ranger, making it a 8/8. He glares at it, and points, "That's an 8/8. I don't like that." I attack, and he chumps with a Skyknight Legionnaire.
His turn: He draws no way of dealing with a 8/8 Scryb Ranger.
My turn: I lay down a forest (Scryb Ranger: 9/9). I try to throw a Moldervine Cloak on my Llanowar Elf, but he Lightning Helixes it, bringing him up to 19 life. I shrug and attack with my Scryb Ranger, bringing him to 10.
His turn: No answers, and more importantly, he he's stuck on three land and holding a Wrath of God in his grip.
My turn: He chants, "Draw something to do an extra point to me! C'mon! I know you can do it! C'mon!" I draw... a Forest. Which, with Blanchwood Armor, is creature pump. I put it down and finish him with my 10/10 Scryb Ranger.
Hnh! What do you know? Timmy was right! Winning with huge creatures is fun!
6) First place winner was non-Judge Jeff. I think he was running a Boros Deck Wins, maybe. Third place was big John (non-Judge Jeff's final opponent), who was running his five color Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. Emily got the random prize.
7) And... maybe this isn't all that abbreviated, anyway. >_>
