    Hustlin' (Mar. 1 to Mar. 5)

    Post  Winterhalter on Sun Feb 28, 2010 9:43 am

    Noah and I are on spring break this week. I for one have lots of free time.

    After some chatter with Justin, Matt C., and Jared, it's become clear to me that we need to step our game up. Because behavior is often better modified by incentives rather than by sheer willpower, I propose playing for money as a means of spurring ourselves to play better. As such, with the sole exception of game 1 against Dredge, I will play any of you for $1 a game. In playing these games, there will be absolutely no takebacks. If you played the wrong land, forgot a "may" trigger, walked into an on-board trick - no matter how small or how egregious the error - it's going to cost you. I think this will be a great way to learn and push ourselves to play better.

    Who's game?

    I support it. this sounds like a good idea to take things a little more serious.

    on a more fun note, i would like to also draft at some point this week (maybe cube?). my nights have opened up recently so im down any time.

    You should play standard at Panda :-p. I'm not on break this week, although I might show up and play you in a game or two.

    I find that playing online consistently helps my technical play, as I don't get takebacks online either, so I have to be careful. Just my two cents.

    On a side note: How did everyone do at the Charlestown PTQ?

    Chingsung the team did pretty poor overall.
    Most of us ran the 2-2 Drop or the 3-2 drop. Wesley stuck around and ended with 5-3 at the end. Not an impressive showing by anyone this week either. I haven't heard back from Justin, so I couldn't say he his performance was.

    We'll just have to rally up and crush out the competition next PTQ.



    Enjoy this delightful tune to lift the team's spirits.

    Standard is not a Real Man's Format. Ergo, all discussion of Standard in this thread will cease and desist forthwith. Only trash talk and specific plans to play Extended for money from here on out.

    Jared, you need to sleeve up some Islands and counter spells through your sheer force of will.

    went 5-1-2 again at the ptq again... with thopter fae
    i should have listened to my gut and ran a singleton hurkyl's recall in the board over a darkblast as it would have won me a match vs DDT.

    overall i like the deck still and would play it at ptq's at the end of the march in maine and montreal..

    top 8 at the ptq was:

    chestermite (u/r fae deck with pestermite kiki jiki combo in it)
    THREE bant zoo
    naya zoo with scapeshifts
    hive mind
    living end
    elf combo

    Ben, I require the Verdant Catacombs I lent you for Legacy on Sunday. Would it be possible to get it from you on Wed at Panda or something?
