Knocked out in the top 4, again, but the games were great. I also think I played and drafted well, so I’m not too frustrated with the loss. This also means that I get to play in the constructed tournament tomorrow, and I am looking forward to that. I need as much practice in the format as possible.
Below is the decklist I mulliganed into. I’ll post my chosen cards after Origins and explain why I picked what. I do not have the decklist I started with unfortunately. This list was excellent for me though. I went 3-0-2 (3 wins, 2 draws, no IDs) so I didn’t lose a match with it. If I wouldn’t have rushed I might have won my first draw, but I learned a valuable lesson about playing your final turn carefully since the time limit no longer matters.
Auggie pictured below. A lot of passing priority while holding gold in this game, but it was fascinating. Dark Knight was surprisingly strong in this scenario, sort of like a 0-cost Juggernaut. Juggernaut is incredible.

While I am looking forward to another day of Epic, it unfortunately means I won’t have much chance to cover the rest of Origins. Good luck to everyone who is competing tomorrow.
