Found this somewhere on my harddrive, thought you might like to have some record that this tourney actually took place...

The old post got so unwieldy that I'm trying to make up for it by doing another post w/short comments, because I wouldn't want to have to scroll down for so long Below are all the posts off of the other thread:

By Redman:

The logs with Dark Lance's comments pretty much say it all, but I'll just add:

Game 1:

I kept what I thought was a not so great hand, without any green mana intially, but a land grant came up quickly, and things went pretty
smoothly from there. A Mind Twist for 4 and an ensnaring bridge did come out stopping my big shaman, and the rack, scroll, and pit
sealed the deal. He managed to get out pretty much all of his contolling elements, so I was happy to make it a close as I did. An
excellent, well-played, and fun game overall.

SB: Took out the elites, shamans, and lyrists for 4 dervishes and 4 hull breach, upon looking back, keeping the elites in might have
been a better idea.

Game 2:

Pretty one sided. Initally had a hand with lots of green critters, but only a mountain. Decided to paris, and got my forest, but no green
critters! Got beat down by factories for several turns, finally drew a G cc creature (Wild Dogs!) I eventually got my red mana, hoping in
vain to get lots of burn while using lone kird ape to fend off factories. Consults were bad for him, and at one point I thought maybe if I
could hold out a couple of turns, he'd be decked, but the inital factory onslaught had taken its toll, and the cursed scroll finished me.
Rather embarassing having my beatdown deck beatdown (by Factories no less) but, it happens.

Both games were well played, and I enjoyed them.

Congratulations to Dark Lance in his win, and good luck to all the competitiors!

Nick F over cooberp, Turboland vs. Keeper, 2-0. Both games were similar. I got a very fast start in Game 1, the combo went off before Dan could build enough counterspells to stop it. In game 2, we jockeyed for position for several turns, until I could Duress the only counter from his hand, then the combo did its thing again.

Against any type of control, Abeyance and Duress are awesome. The lone Capsize was great when he started casting Jester's Cap (to get my Seismic Assault).

Both me and the coin are now 2-1. How'd you sideboard Nick?

By Sylvester (Sylvester) on Thursday, March 29, 2001 - 08:49 pm:
Well, i think i'll leave the win to the other guy...Our schedules just can't fit(he can't play after 4 PM EST, and i'm not home bfore 5 PM)

So, let's say he went 2-0

Gzeiger (Acc Blue) over Will the Walking Dude (TurboLand) 2-0

Game 1 a Lotus gave me a turn 3 Morphling. I won the counter war with no cards in hand and Morphling went the distance. I don't think I cast another spell after that.

Game 2 I again have a Lotus-Morphling, this time second turn. Will sideboarded into a counter-Oath deck which I wasn't expecting (that's why you read the decklists first...) and almost had me, Oathing up a Spike Weaver and then a Morphling to deal with mine. Unfortuneatly he was extremely mana-screwed, with only two lands in play and 5 life when he first used the Oath. The Weaver did his job, but Morphling died to mine for lack of mana support, and I won with a Time Walk backed up by two counters, allowing me to attack again before the Oath got out of hand.

By Gzeiger (Gzeiger) on Saturday, April 07, 2001 - 07:46 pm:
Round 2: Gzeiger over Acolytec 2-1 (Monoblue mirror)

Game one he had no answer for my first-turn Library. That's game over.

Game two he won by Morphling advantage, his two flying over my one.

Game three was a random assortment of bad luck for him, and I barely won by Kegging his Morphling.

Gothmog, no sideboarding done. The combo was fast enough, that usually sideboarding isn't needed.

By Nick Franceschine, the Loremaster (Nick) on Thursday, April 26, 2001 - 01:34 am:
Semifinal match, Nick (Turboland) over FiReAnGeL (Pox), 2-1.

I mulliganed twice, the first game, which was a huge mistake against Pox. He went first turn: Dark Ritual twice, Hymn, Pox! And I had no hand. Next turn Rack finished me. The next two games I kept mediocre hands and eventually got the combo off, maybe turn 6 or 7. FiReAnGeL just didn't have enough disruption to stop it.

Except for the unique sideboard, I am playing a straight TurboNevyn deck. I hope Nevyn is pleased with the showing his deck has made so far.
