I went to FNM the day before to play test my Red/Green deck since I hadn't played type 2 all year I figured I should get a little practice in and see the decks being played in action. After playing it a few rounds I came to the conclusion that this deck is no were near good enough to make top 8 so I went over a few of my Magic buddies and asked them what I should build and they suggested I go with mono-black control since I have a playset of Thoughseize. I traded for a lot of mono-black stuff and went home to get some sleep for the next day but when I got home and looked at what I had I realized the deck didn't have anywhere near enough creatures so I decided to go with burn so I started searching through my stuff for the best burn cards for my deck and finished the main deck minus the cards I was going to have to get tomorrow. The next morning I got up and worked the sideboard for about a half-hour, tossed my deck in my Zapdos deck box, grabbed my Pokecenter playmat, and headed to the tournament. When I got there I couldn't find pat460 and he had the 2 Incinerates I needed but he showed up in a few minutes and I borrowed the other cards I needed from 2 of my friends now on to round 1 but first the deck list. Mono Red Burn Main Deck 4x Mogg Fanatic 4x Martyr of Ashes 4x Keldon Marauders 3x Jaya Ballard, Task Mage 3x Seismic Assault 3x Browbeat 4x Shock 4x Sudden Shock 4x Incinerate 4x Fiery Temper 4x Keldon Megaliths 19x Mountain Sideboard 2x Pyrohemia 2x Molten Disaster 3x Threaten 3x Incendiary Command 1x Tarfire 4x Guerrilla Tactics Round 1 Me vs. some guy Mono Red Burn vs mono red His deck was really wierd since he was running Shivan Dragons and the Red Akroma. Game 1 I was able to kill him with a few Mogg Fanatics and a few burn spells since he didn't draw more than 2 lands the whole game. Game 2 I don't see much of anything and he sees one of his Shivan Dragons with plenty of lands to pump it. Game 3 it goes back and forth he has a few big walls so I can't get to him with any of my creatures. He drops his Akroma and passes on the end of his turn I burn out his flying blocker and threaten his Akroma to do just enough to kill him. 1-0 Round 2 Me vs. Matt Viviani Mono Red Burn vs Mono Red Elementals I've known Viviani for years and I know he's real good but I've gotten a lot better over the years. We're both like mono red eeh. It goes back and forth both games as the mirror match would but I end up taking the match. Good games Matt. 2-0 Round 3 Me vs. Jeremy St. Clair Mono Red Burn vs. Mono Red (Can I play against anything but mono red!!!) Game one he gets a great start and takes an early lead me being land flooded doesn't help :-(. Game 2 He gets stuck on 2 lands for a few turns and I Incendiary Command one of his land basically for the game. Game 3 He suspends a Gargadon on turn 1 and gets the Mogg Warmarshall and everything to sack for it. Great games sir. 2-1 Round 4 Me vs. Keenan Richard Mono Red Burn vs. Red/Green Aggro I'll just say both games he suspended a Gargadon turn on and then dropped and Mogg Warmarshall and then a Keldon Marauder and then when he got his Gargadon into play he swong with it and his Treetop Village. GG Keenan 2-2 Round 5 Me vs. Jose Torres Mono Red Burn vs. Red/Black/Blue control. His deck was really interesting game one he got me with a blaze for like 28 after he removed like 7 counters from 2 storage lands. Games 2 and 3 I'm able to burn him out fast enough. 3-2 Round 6 Me vs. Gary Cerefice (I'm not Ash though so I will not loose to Gary!!!) Mono Red Burn vs. Black/Green Elves This is like the worst possible match up for him. Every time he drops a creature I burn it. I win this match quite easily. 4-2 I end up coming in 14th out of 47, not bad for someone who didn't play Type 2 in about a year. Props Doing so good at my Comeback to Magic Tournament. Hanging with my Magic buddies. Trading a Toughtseize for the Extended Art Doran. The really good extended art participation card. One person from Team Rocket making top 8 (go Brian Page). Seing how many Magic players use Pokemon deck boxes. Slops Not making Top 8. Not having any good places to go get lunch from that are close enough.
