Playing in a tournament last night with . Before we begin, the other players were confused at what the card does and eventually asked "Does this even work in commander?" and i just said "probably not, but i just like Mishra".

One of the players, using for an aggro deck, casts , basically thinking he locks others out of effective removal/counterspells.

I wasn't set up for it yet and had a in hand, but i was like 'meh', and drew a card with 's ability, went to my turn and cast Mishra and Top, took about 10 solid minutes to explain what was happening, then had a lot of fun as i dodged removal a couple times before going off.

There's tons of casual play Th/Fr/Sa and basically every day, but the weekly tournament is about half casual, and half competitive. It's just $5 and the winners get a decent chunk of that money, but for $5 i guess there are plenty of people who just want to show up and figure it's no skin off their back if they lose.

Actually, the guy who played Pos Storm thought it blocked people from casting commanders as well. He got that idea because he said he's seen people play Storm so they can recast their general over and over for the 'free' creatures.
And he also thought you can keep the second spell in your hand if you choose not to cast it.

This is also coming from a store/playgroup who thinks the 10-card sideboard is the official rule, and mulligans are partial paris with 1 free mull, and you scry if you at 6 or less cards after mulls.
Someone wanted to SB against Mishra and i said, "oh didn't know you do that here i should brought one". He said yes it's in the official rules, and i said "no, it's not an official rule but it's listed under common house rules" and he got INCREDIBLY belligerent and rude the rest of the night towards me. I was also being slightly antagonistic because i like to see people get all wound up, but still.

The knowledge and skill level is all over the place here. Couple weeks ago a spell was cast, and the caster just presumed it wasn't going to be countered and just plopped in play, and i say "hang on a sec, that's still on the stack". I had priority, and before i decided to counter it someone else goes "well, before you can do anything i'm going to counter it". I was totally flabberghasted, i was next in player order and had priority, and this guy seriously thinks if you speak first then your spell resolves first?
But i was happy to keep my counter so i was like wtf-ever. And neither even gleaned the fact i had a counter in hand, and i just used it next turn cycle anyway. Smdh

That same night, in the first round we revealed commanders and one guy had two decks was like "ohhh, if everyone's playing blue i'm going to switch to Ur-Dragon". I was like, "dude, you can't counter pick generals" and someone else in our pod said "it's cool, none of us even have more than one deck anyway". Not even sure what was actually implied there.

Agh, totally offtopic. This is all for the bad players thread. Haha.

Ok, so I finally have one I can put here.

It's a 4-player game: (me), , , and .

I am holding with in play, giving me enough mana to one shot the table. The problem is, Iroas has in play, and mine isn't the highest life total, so I'm in a bit of a pickle.

Sensing this, and seeing I have roughly 30 mana in play untapped, the Rith player opts to use his double mana to attempt to one-shot me with , knowing that if he attempts to kill the table Iroas or Kaseto will give me back a counterspell with Tasigur (but, obviously, won't if it's just me dying).

What to do? Activate , flash in and activate , then flash . This clears the board and, more importantly, gives me the highest life total. I can now finish off the table with the Squall Line- which I promptly do, all with the lethal Fireball still on the stack. Best game with that deck ever.

So I had another pretty crazy game with my new Zada deck. It was a four player game with Myself as Zada, Thraximundar, Meren and Mizzix.

Thrax started off crazy with a turn one sol ring/mind stone while myself and Mizzik were both mana screwed. I had to him for the scry on turn two to try and get into a third land but failed. I got my third land on turn four and dropped a which help me (and Mizzix) stabilize and got my remaining land drops.

Mizzix finally got to 4 lands and played his general. Thraximundar decided to cast his general and swing at Mizzix to get rid of him. Before damage I cast on Thraximundar to turn him up to 11 and then fade into obscurity.

Few turns later, relevant board state is Thrax has , some mana rocks and nothing else. Meren has and a random demon. Mizzix has Mizzix with two experience counters and I have an untapped a goblin token and a plus an untapped mountain and an untapped with a underneath. It's Thrax's turn and I say "it would be funny if you cast Thrax and swing at Meren making him sac his demon and then hit the token with the Staff so he can't block." He agrees with me and swings at Meren. Meren takes 7 and I trigger the Knoll to bring in my Caged Sun saving my goblins from future threats of nin and doubling my mana before my next turn... <3 politics.

Anyway, it comes around to me and I untap with Krenko, 4 tokens and the gardener. I cast Zada, swing at everyone with tokens and then to make them all 5 or bigger and scry like 8 cards. I then cast Wheel of Fortune and pass the turn with ridiculous shenanigans in hand for the next turn...

Thrax realizes I'm a bit scary, tutors for and puts it on Thrax and swings at me (not sure why he didn't just grab a board wipe but whatever). I sac the gardener to kill one of his ravnica bounce lands and two tapped tokens but not before making ~7 more with Krenko. He was at 7+10 from conscription and just got 3 more from me taking him to a 20/20. I don't block and go down to ~19. Meren and Mizzix didn't draw into a wipe or anything else relevant.

My turn I cast then tap Krenko making 11 more goblins. I cast spliced with targeting Zada. Mizzix casts of all things... No more 66 mana for 3. :( Not relevant though. I tap the rest of my lands and cast a with x=10 and swing out with a bunch of 12/2 tokens to finish everyone off. Not quite as epic as twice as many 60+ power tokens but I'll take it.

Had another pretty sick game this weekend. I was playing Zada vs Omnath, Meren, and Grimgrin.

I have out and as well as a few other random creatures/tokens for 8 total. Omnath has a bunch of elementals out but not enough to kill anyone due to blockers but potentially if someone board wipes. Meren has nothing of merit. Grimgrin has and a few zombies out. Most notably .

Omnath swings at me with everything so I cast an spliced with on Zada. He has 4 enchantments in play and Grimgrin has 1. Zada gets bounced to my hand in response but there's still 7 copies of it going off so Omnath takes 56 damage and Grimgrin takes 14. Meren does a lot of nothing and passes the turn. Grimgrin bounces/sacrifices/reanimates Gray Merchant like three times taking me and Meren down to around 10 and passes the turn.

My turn I drop , cast and Zada then making sure the battledriver copy comes in first so my copies all get +4 and haste. Before I head to combat, Grimgrin casts . I respond by casting splicing on and get 45 mana...

Recast everything in my hand, flashback and do the whole thing over again so everything has at least +2 and haste with token copies having +4. Add in twice as well as several spell cast triggers on the Charmbreaker and copy. I then thank the Grimgrin player for bouncing the blockers.
