I think nodnol played really by TugaChampion at Sun, 06/28/2009 - 16:18

I think nodnol played really bad in game2 when he decided not to attack with the 3/1 while he had the pro green guy. Maybe I'm missing something but he would have probably won.

I agree by m8x115 at Sun, 06/28/2009 - 17:33

I agree completely,I can't see any reason not to attack with it leaving the pro green guy for def and either we're both missing something or that was definately the wrong play.

I thought the same thing by JXClaytor at Sun, 06/28/2009 - 17:34

But since the hands are not available in the replays, it's not really fair for anyone to say he played really bad. We miss a lot of information by not being able to see what is in the hands.

If it were me though, that Drake is getting in there as soon as my Outlander resolves.

yeah if you noticed I stopped talking after I figured out I could not work out the audio and video delay.

Watch the rest of the videos, they are with out commentary.

And next time, be a little less rude. No one likes a jerk.

first off thanks for posting these...fun to watch
you seem to have mislinked one of the videos. Game 1 Edel vs Orgg Ascetic shows cjswoosh vs kreeler game 3.

Yea I saw his hand early on and knew he could cycle resounding silence if I attacked. I personally didnt want him drawing a card, I prefered to keep his 8 lands untapped. His deck was perfect vs mine, pro black and stingers were the nightmare matchup.

That's fair. I missed the exchange of you seeing his hand therefore knowing what he had to potentially blow you out with.

I would have made a minor mistake, but if going back would you have attacked into it anyway, just to get it out of his hand and maybe open yourself up more to a different game plan?

it is really cool to watch by LOurs at Mon, 06/29/2009 - 05:31

it is really cool to watch the videos here, ty for that !
The games are pretty interesting and most of the decks seem really well built & pretty solid. The deck of Ogre is very potent : Defiler of Souls + Broodmate dragon gave to him a deep advantage (especialy the defiler which seems to have a special ability like "when defile comes into play, your opponents have to say gg" :D ). The strategy with early outlander & zombie worked very well to gain enough time in order to call the bomb... GG

Oops, sorry. Guess the video lagged and I didnt see the Valeron Outlander getting killed the first view. My bad. Looks like some horrible mana flood and the 2:1 with the Branching Bolt really blew you out that game.

I wish i was good enough to open defiler and broodmate and have my opponents mulligan to 5 every match because their decks are still better, oh and draw the defiler and broodmate every game
