Anxiety over Radagast 2-1

Beyond Dominia: The Type One Magic Mill: Type One Tournament of Champions V Messages (Please do not delete me Rakso, I want to LIVVVE!!!!): Anxiety over Radagast 2-1

Radagast was playing some Keeper deck. I play some aggro-control deck.

First game, Radagast topdecks Merchant Scroll after I tap out to MT him. He grabs Ancestral, and is off to the races.

Second game I drop 2nd turn Negator, 3rd turn Negator and roll after his FoF reveals no kill.

Third game I Ancestral first turn. He FoW's and I FoW back. He runs out of cards first, and I bait his counter with a FoF with only 4 lands in play. He counters, and I untap, drop island, and play Morphling. I mana drain an Ancestral, and the Morphling goes the distance.

So, 2-1 over Radagast. Games 1 and 3 were good, and I just slapped down Negators in game 2.

Yes, game 2 was unfair like that. I was boarding in 4 Duress and 4 Finkels, planning to trick him out by going aggro-control, but when my duress sees 2 Negators going second, that spells trouble. The third game would probably have been winnable, or at least it would've been closer, if I hadn't have been moronic enough to pitch More Fling to my FoW instead of the Mis-D I was holding. (He was tapped out, and I believe he had 0-1 cards in hand, but can't quite remember, so we could at least have had some More Fling battles [which are an incredible headache, mind]).

P.S. Playing keeper in the AM hours is not exactly tech.

- Radagast

P.S. Skeletal Scrying is amazing. It's instant speed, draws X cards, and isn't misdirectable. And messing up Wills isn't a problem:
- You usually don't want to cast it for more than 5-6 at best against beatdown decks to stay out of burn/etc. range.
- If you do do it for your whole grave vs. control, you've won anyways, and slightly messing up a Will won't be a worry.
- Do you really plan on recurring all those Wastes, Wasted/Stripped lands (or sacced to ZOrb), FoWs, Mana Drains, etc. etc. with will? Don't you have more broken things to do? :-)

P.P.S. About the two P.S.s -- one was Pre Signature, the other was Post Signature (and this is Post Post Signature :-P).

P.P.P.S. Yes, I'm a freak.
