I'm still enjoying having Willbender decide the guy wasn't going to get Angel of Despair with Debtor's Knell, he was getting his Desolation Angel back...

Last Friday I saw I guy kill two players with Door to Nothingness and Rings of Brighthearth. Sure, it takes 12 mana to do it but it's one of the coolest plays I've seen.

Last week I was involved in a 6-player Emperor EDH. To speed things up we had each team take their turns simultaneously like it was 3HG. I was the Emperor for my team with my Reaper King Changeling deck, backed up by a casual Zur deck and the BR Wort goblin deck. The opposition had a Kami of the Crescent Moon deck as General backed up by Ghost Dad (staring down the Wort) and the RG Wort staring down Zur.

Raidmother decided to use Life from the Loam/Strip Mine early to lock Zur out and KC Moon played Zur's Weirding. Certain players were continuously denied lands and certain players were continuously denied spells. Everyone was at 40 when the Weirding was played so there was a large cushion in terms of the ability to pay life. I wish I could have helped my teammates, except for the fact that, due to spell range, I have no part in Zur's Weirding except discussing whether the opponent can draw certain cards or not.

Definitely a nice change to the usual games that we were used to playing :P

(it ended with me setting up Mirror Entity and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, if you are interested to know)

Wow, and then next turn you unmorph shapeshifter, copy the morph trigger, and give him back his Desolation Giant (if he was using Oros as his general of course).

Last night one Goblin player set up the board ready to attack for lethal next turn by playing Goblin King. His opponent untapped and played Mirror Entity, swinging for lethal.

I heard this story from him. That's not very cool. Actually, it's very lame.

What's so lame about that play? If you play with a card that can get you burned by some sort of control effect or clone effect, I don't know what the problem is.

It sounds like a funny way to kill someone. I mean it's not like he just had to cast the mirror entity and win. He had to have other creatures in play to make the play work before he got pounded by the goblin tribe.

If it was one card that won the game, I would say it was lame, but he must have needed a couple other guys to make it work.

I wish I had a Mirror Entity...

You say that for 90% of the plays anyway :P

Brightflame for 4 choosing a white creature after a player just storm herded for 23.

During that same game Warp World into Crater Hellion, Vigor and 6 other fatties. (The rest of the players scooped in the face of this.)

I want to build a Mayael deck just so I can do this.

It would have been more impressive had he not been playing Lin Sivvi..

A guy at one of our games last night won by connecting with Worldslayer+Sapling of Colfenor.

When he did it again a second game, I calmly untapped and dropped the Maze of Ith I had just drawn. A few turns and an Ertai later, and the others scooped.

In a 6 man game I was playing Grand Arbiter Augustin IV. I have Grand Arbitor, Akroma, Iridescent Angel, Clone copying a Stuffy Doll, and Solemn Simulacrum. All in all there are not many creatures out for the rest of the players. One player, who has Kiki Jiki and Stonehewer Giant, goes for board position and casts Martial Coup making 5 soldiers and in response plays Ghostway to save his guys. I responded by casting Reins of Power switching creatures with him before the Ghostway resolved, saving my guys, allowing me to keep my dominant position, and all his creatures died. He did get 5 1/1's though.

My friend droped Lilliana and tutored in the late game, so on my turn I couldn't help but play and use my Mindslaver on him. I draw his card and to my surprise it was a game of chaos, now only if all slaves where so kind. Needless to say I walked away with an untouchable life total and a very dead opponenet.
