A Journey Into the Mind of Ross Merriam
 
03:15
RIP Ross Merriam. In all seriousness, he is actually one of my favorite players. His expressions are just perfect for this, I think. Shoutouts to Ross for both being a good sport about it all and for his perpetually epic beard. _________________________________________________________________ Thanks to our patron: Benedetto Diab Chad Vladictus If you'd like to support me on Patreon, visit https://www.patreon.com/t1glistenerelf You can also follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/T1GlistenerElf My Facebook page is this: https://www.facebook.com/t1glistenerelf Feel free to use my videos with appropriate credit being given.

Hitler reacts to the banning of Gitaxian Probe right after he bought his playset of near mint FNM promo ones. Hilarity ensues. Obviously, Hitler plays Death's Shadow Zoo.

JUST DO IT!!! The war waged in every Infect player's head is between going for the super-quick kill or playing it safe.

Pauper Magic — Mono Green Infect vs. Esper Familiars
 
07:09
One of us goes 4-0 for the day. Guess who?* In a world where Treasure Cruise begins taking over the format, one simply is unlikely to win against those long-game decks that run it without being one themselves. Given that, how do we beat Treasure Cruise? My solution is to kill them while Cruise is sitting in their hand, uncastable. In other words, I want to kill them quickly, and few Pauper decks are consistently as fast as Infect. Here's the decklist: Artifacts (3) 3 Bonesplitter Creatures (13) 4 Blight Mamba 4 Glistener Elf 4 Ichorclaw Myr 1 Llanowar Augur Enchantments (4) 4 Rancor Instants (18) 2 Giant Growth 4 Groundswell 4 Mutagenic Growth 4 Predator's Strike 4 Vines of Vastwood Sorceries (4) 4 Gitaxian Probe Lands (18) 18 Forests Sideboard 4 Apostle's Blessing 4 Nature's Claim 4 Ranger's Guile 1 Relic of Progenitus 2 Spell Pierce (Yeah, I know that I can't cast them. I didn't have a lot of time before I had to leave, so I rushed when building the deck. These should be two more Relics.) *Here's a hint: look at the length of the video. _____________________________________________________ Special thanks to Dragon Star Hobbies for allowing me to film at their store.

Pauper Magic — RUG Tron vs. Mono Black Devotion
 
12:21
Finally, videos without me as one of the players. Yes, this and all of the videos from this evening of gameplay will be sans yours truly. Finally, right? (^_^) Ignore the playmat; it's just being borrowed from me, is all. Firstly, he plays RUG Elves, then he plays RUG Tron? The guy on the left probably would play RUG Delver in Legacy if he could, amirite? Secondly, the player on the left continues his winning streak by controlling, poking, then cast Gary. Sounds like a solid strategy to me. _____________________________________________________ Special thanks to Dragon Star Hobbies for allowing me to film at their store.

Modern Magic — 5C Elementals vs. Boros Tokens
 
17:22
Although Infect is my first love in every format, 5C Elementals is more like my good friend who makes me better just by hanging out with them. Being able to tutor up your answers with Flamekin Harbinger, get out the Wastelock with Horde of Notions and Fulminator Mage, and even just the turn three creatures with Smokebraider all leave this a fairly consistent and comprehensive tribal. Clearly, the deck has untapped potential, but just isn't recognized in a format that can be as broken as Modern. At least not yet. After this match, a note to self: collect more SCG tokens, especially the human ones. Also, I need to remember that fog effects trigger Voice for getting tokens. _____________________________________________________ Special thanks to Dragon Star Hobbies for allowing me to film at their store.

Modern Magic — Mono Black Devotion vs. Orzhov Tokens
 
18:04
This is one of my least favored matchups, and there are several reasons for this. Firstly, most of the time, my kill spells result in me being two-for-one'd, three-for-one'd, or even four-for-one'd. Secondly, they run removal, which can keep me off of enough devotion to win off of Gary or Erebos. Thirdly, they can blank my hand attack and targeted sac effects with Leyline of Sanctity. Game two did, in fact, see me losing due to my not casting Gatekeeper of Malakir on my second turn. As shown in the video, I did not do so because I forgot about the targeted nature of the ability. Had I done so, I would have reduced his life total by at least two, which would have resulted in him having to leave a chump blocker back against the level four Guul Draz Assassin, meaning that I would have taken less damage (I'd have been at nine), and a swing with everything for eight damage after his topdecked Honor of the Pure would have put me down to one. So yes, I cost myself the game by not realizing the interaction that was taking place. As such, I hope that I can get a do-over at some point in the near future.

Modern Magic — Mono Green Stompy vs. Reanimator Combo
 
13:04
The tournament on this day was the first for the player on the left, if I remember correctly (or was it just his first with the deck?) At any rate, his deck is perhaps far too fair to be favored in this match, fast though it may be. _____________________________________________________ If you'd like to support me on Patreon, visit https://www.patreon.com/t1glistenerelf You can also follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/T1GlistenerElf Special thanks to Dragon Star Hobbies for allowing me to film at their store.

Modern Magic — Naya Burn vs. Endless Belching
 
43:38
Firstly, please do not get onto my opponent playing Burn; he said that this is his first tournament. That being said, I would have given him the match if he won games two or three, which is why I said that we were in our third game and my gracious opponent said "kind of." This deck is, in my estimation, a less powerful but INFINITELY MORE AWESOME version of my normal prison strategy. If any card in Magic today is more controversial than Goblin Charbelcher, then I'd be surprised to know. However, I'm not getting a "cheap" turn-one kill from mine. Rather, my deck can win on its own sweet time. Going to sideboard, we side out the combo while they side in hatecards, instead choosing a superfriends route to victory for games two and (probably) three. Here's my list: Artifacts 4 Goblin Charbelcher Creatures 1 Nyx-Fleece Ram 4 Wall of Omens Enchantments 3 Endless Horizons 4 Ghostly Prison 4 Leyline of Sanctity 1 Oblivion Ring 4 Path to Exile 1 Rest in Peace 4 Sphere of Safety 1 Story Circle Sorceries 4 Idyllic Tutor 2 Wrath of God Lands 1 Mistveil Plains 2 Plains (should be Snow-Covered, but it doesn't matter except to make your opponent think that you need Snow lands) 20 Snow-Covered Plains Sideboard 1 Blind Obedience 1 Heliod, God of the Sun (complete with Solaire of Astora alter) 1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion 1 Karma 2 Karn Liberated 1 Nevermore 2 Rule of Law 1 Sanctimony 4 Stony Silence 1 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon _____________________________________________________ If you'd like to support me on Patreon, visit https://www.patreon.com/t1glistenerelf You can also follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/T1GlistenerElf Feel free to use my videos with appropriate credit being given.

I don't call myself T1GlistenerElf for nothing! I do enjoy playing this type of strategy, and I like how technical the deck is to play and how flexible the gameplan, going long in some games but able to kill on turn three as well. There is so much that goes into beating this opponent piloting this deck: skill, luck, and even a couple of successful bluffs. I had more fun in this match than Magic has given me in a long time.

This may very well be my hardest matchup amongst the commonly played decks in the format.

Modern Magic — Orzhov Ramp vs. UWR Control
 
27:47
Back when Extended was a format (may it rest in peace), this was probably the first deck that I made for me fiancêe to play in it. After having converted it to Modern, I was pumped to show it off on camera. Two hours of sleep and a 5K run to the game store later, "this is not the showing off you are looking for." Still, I had the tapes, so I figured that I might as well have posted them, misplays and all. The overarching moral of this week's games is to GET SOME SLEEP before playing Magic, even if it is just your weekly Modern Swiss tournament at your LGS. I also was going to have the camera follow the missus around when she played it, but I couldn't borrow the camera for that week, which is a crying shame. You guys missed some classic moments, I'm afraid, such as telling her opponent not to curse after she had just said "muthaf***ing s***, dude!" Actually, yesterday's matches were without a camera, so you missed a grindy control mirror where I won in the final turns after time is called (on turn four) in the first game, through three resolved Sphinx's Revelations for a total of 22 extra cards and life. Again, I beat myself up so for that information reveal in game one, but I think that he had me no matter what I had up my sleeve. I most definitely was not expecting such a quick game two from UWR Control. I'd never seen them kill that quickly, although I knew that it was possible. _____________________________________________________ Special thanks to Dragon Star Hobbies for allowing me to film at their store.

Hey Magic community on YouTube! I'm finally back (sickness and school), and for whatever reason, I just keep playing this deck… Even when I lose, I just enjoy the style of gameplay too much to have quit it before this filming. In all seriousness, I actually just wanted to try out Treasure Cruise and see how it would fit in a deck that tends to play at least one spell per turn. Personally, I found three to be excellent in the deck. As for this match, lets just say that my worst matchups are combat-less combo decks like my friend's 75. Here's the decklist for you.

I swear that the video isn't fast-forwarded at all; my opponent really does talk, play, and move his hands that quickly. Given that he's playing a control deck that he just picked up recently, I'm all the more impressed that he can keep up with himself, although it may have caused him to make a few misplays. That Rain of Tears, though. Not hitting the Academy Ruins was short-sighted. Keeping him from getting the lock should have been my priority instead. The first time, we both forgot about the Expedition Map. The second time around, I should have known better, and that mistake sealed my fate. Althought I don't remember with certainty, here is what I think the mainboard that I was playing at the time looked like.
