Monday night Magic

Tim came over and we played a game of Magic while Lee went to the store. We had to stop mid-game to get the baby changed into a nighttime diaper and p.j.'s. Then the game resumed, I drew my sixth land, put Godo, Bandit Warlord into play, hunted through my deck to find Tenza, Godo's Maul, and that was basically game. The combo's sick when it works. Tim's artifact recursion via Skeleton Shard was working okay until then.

Second game: I got Mind's Eye into play, along with Teferi's Puzzle Box. This combo can win stalled games. If both pieces get into play, I've never seen it fail. Every turn each player (i.e. your opponent) puts their hand on the bottom of their deck, and draws that many cards. As they do, you use Mind's Eye (When an opponent draws a card, pay 1 to draw a card). So, if your opponent's still got cards around, you draw lots of cards. Tim admitted his opening hand was four mountains, a Sakura-Tribe Elder, and two Myojins. He figured if he could draw a forest, he could drop Sakura-Tribe Elder, fetch another land, and then roll around in Myojin goodness.

I showed Tim the copy of Blue Moon, and we'll see how that goes. He got to our house later than usual-normally, we're able to squeeze in a 3-player game of San Juan.
