Jens you completed this before the challenge officially started with the release of YSO46. You and I both know that this deck list is not in the spirit of these challenges. We are looking for innovation and you answer to jam 4 into dredge which has a ridic g1 matchup against the field only to side them out R2 and R3 for dredge hate is cheap. People could win the library challenge this way or the 4 bog imp challenge. I think we and the community that voted for maniac were clear we were looking for a dedicated maniac deck from this challenge. If you want to see this as a victory we will of course award you the title and the prize but tbh seems cheap given the date and mechanism.
Let the community know so they can act accordingly with a view to the challenge.

wow... Oo, relax - like, serious... relax.

First of all; I did this purely for the lolz. I dind intend to offend anyone...

I read your Post with the Challenge on CQ and thougth, "Heck, lets join rigth the first DE of the Classic Celebration with 4 Lab Maniacs and do this!"

And while ill agree it could have been 4 Bog Imps or w/e, i DID win Games with Lab Maniac (or would have if my Opponents dind concede b4 i had to draw a Card) So Yes, i think i´ve won this Challenge.

BUT this is ur Challenge and if u Guys think i "cheated" and dont agree that i´ve taken this down fair n square with just a innovative Way and/or cant see the Fun in my little "Project" then screw it and dont award my anything.

Like we say in Germany: ur Party - ur Rules.


@goat314: thx!

Congratulations to Jens for completing the Maniac Challenge. Prize is on its way.

Maniac Challenge 2: I will personally stump up for the prize to support this. Maniac revisited same rules as before but let me make it clear the Maniac has to be integral to the deck and win strategy and spawn a new innovative archetype in the spirit of involving the format :D same prize same deadline.

Regards Hammer

Goat - No shout out to the by MMogg at Fri, 12/23/2011 - 20:55

Goat - No shout out to the Farmers... booo. =p

I disagree with Zach that Brainstorm is the hardest card to play. I find it much harder to know what to do regarding your opponent's deck and how you should play out your spells. For example, if you are playing Shops – a deck so many think is straightforward – and your opening hand has a Chalice, Thorn and Sphere, which do you play first? Chalice for how much, when you do play it? I find these questions agonize me and cost me games much more than when to Brainstorm and what to put back.

Glad you guys agree to what I was saying a long while ago: you were over-stating the influence Tangle Wire would have on the meta. =p

Great cast... I'm interested to see how you will tackle next week considering the crazy number of DEs. "What do we have next George" "Umm, we have tournament #58 and another Dredge deck going 4-0" >_< ;p Crazy amount of DEs firing... so lush.

We edited out all reference to those turnip farmers and their ridiculous facial hair :D (j/k)
Good to see you back and commenting on YSO again.
I am outta town but will be sure to catch up on all the DE results when I get back. YSO will be insane I think we need to summons Adrian aka Bactgudz to the mic of YSO he is good at this type of analysis and stats.

You can always cover the by Kuriboh at Sat, 12/24/2011 - 03:50

You can always cover the events that fired before the celebration started normally, and just skim over the later ones. And I'm totally not saying that just because I 4-0'd a pre-celebration event :P
