IPotW #26

The most ridiculous game I've ever played:

Lolzor decided to try his new Eldrazi deck against my Stasis-variant deck. You wouldn't believe how close it was.

I had probably the greatest godhand for control. It was brilliant.

Turn one: Forest
Turn two: Island, Sol Ring, Isochron Scepter imprinting Counterspell.
Once I pass priority he Nature's Claims targeting Isochron Scepter. Probably the perfect answer. I cast Mental Misstep paying 2 life, but for some reason Lolzor has his own Mental Misstep. This is when I smile.

Exiling two Elvish Spirit Guides, I cast Manamorphose and add two blue. I use one to cast Brainstorm and get an answer. Boom. Diverge. Unfortunately the only other legal target was Sol Ring. Additionally, there went my entire hand.

My next land was luckily another Island, giving me enough mana to activate Isochron Scepter, stopping the game completely.

Approximately 26 turns later (that's probably an understatement), Lolzor actually had an answer: Krosan Grip. I hate that card. However, in all the other turns it allowed me to set up my entire lockdown in my deck, which included Humility, Moat, Opalesence, Parallax Wave.

However, once Lolzor got rid of Isochron Scepter, he played Back to Nature.

Crippled once again, I try to recover.

Several turns pass, and I end up Pacifying/Guard Dutying everyone of Lolzor's creatures. Until he Spawnsire of Ulamog. I had already wasted my Arrest on Pathrazer of Ulamog--over the course of the next turns he got enough mana to crank out enough Eldrazi spawn, which gave him enough mana to activate Spawnsire of Ulamog's ability.

So he proxied in 300 Emrakul of Aeons Torn, and he cast them all, gaining 300 extra turns. But the funny part was, when they entered the battlefield, they all died to the Legendary rule. I laughed at his misfortune.

Long story short, they all got shuffled into his library and he won by playing Battle of Wits in a 60-card deck.
