|When it works this deck can beat pretty much anything (except perhaps very counter-heavy blue decks), but it is quite vulnerable to sub-par draws so I was prepared for a mediocre showing. Fortunately the only time the shuffler did not want to cooperate was in the almost meaningless round 4, although I still was disappointed to lose that match as I built this deck not least with the match-up against Infect in mind.
The Top 8 match was very close (as was the first meeting with charles) with me falling one single damage point short in game 3. Well, at least it brought me some more sleep. :-)
