Two weeks ago, Albert [kimimaru in vs.skillze.com] and I playtested our decks, his Revenge Squad against my Warbound. Yup, I’m still playing my Warbound! haha Anyway, as our second game started, Mark [Ozawabinladen] said that my Warbound should fight his X-Statix. The new loner deck vs the old loner deck. That sounded great! So after one week [this past Sautrday to be precise], Warbound and X-Statix clashed.
Mario [carebuggers] piloted his brother’s X-Statix. Sadly, it was the old deck; no Mobilize or Pathetic Attempt. It’s really old. So it was kinda unfair, but we still played. I told them to update it and play it again this Saturday so it will be more fun to play against. hehe
Mario won the die roll and opted to go first. He kept his hand while I chose to mulligan.
We both placed our resources and passed.
I placed a resource and passed while Mario recruited a boosted Phat (William Reilly). I took the hit directly.
Mario = 50 / Me = 47
Mario recruited Orphan (Guy Smith) while I underdropped with Miek (The Unhived). Phat attacked Miek for a mutual stun. (Mario = 49 / Me = 43) I removed Miek from the game. Then Mario played Mutant of the Year, KOing Phat to gain 2 and then attacked directly with Orphan.
Mario = 51 / Me = 37
I played Warbound to the End and searched for Hulk (Green Scar) while Mario recruited U-Go-Girl (Tragic Teleporter) and returned Orphan to his hand. I attacked U-Go-Girl with Hulk. Mario flipped X-Statix Café so U-Go-Girl is now 9/9. I played a Hulk Smash to make Hulk 16/7. Double stun.
Mario = 40 / Me = 33
Mario placed a resource and passed [maybe he wouldn’t if he had Mobilize] while I played Korg (Kronan Warrior), placing him beside Hulk in the front row. Mario attacked Hulk with a 9/9 U-Go-Girl. I did nothing. (Mario = 40 / Me = 27) Korg attacked U-Go-Girl for a mutual stun. I removed Korg from the game. At the end of the turn, Mario KO’d U-G-Girl.
Mario = 35 / Me = 22
I recruited Hulk (The Green King) and gained 4 +1/+1 counters while Mario recruited Zeitgeist (Axel Cluney). At the start of the combat phase, Mario used Zeitgeist’s ability and I countered with a Pathetic Attempt. Hulk attacked Zeitgeist with the help of an Archangel and a Hulk Smash (28/17). (Mario = 15 / Me = 22) I played a Righteous Anger and got Mario to the negatives.
I forgot my notes for the 2nd round, but I also won that. I’ll edit this entry soon by posting the 2nd round. I hope they remember to modify the X-Statix deck so the next time the two will square off, it will be more fun. Golden vs Modern. hehe 🙂
By the way, Happy Birthday, GINO! hahahaha
