Here is one of my favorite types of games. It is very annoying for tournament players to use us casual players as training punching bags in 'Just for Fun.' I played against one of these decks. My opponent's game plan is to reanimate the White or Red Gearhulks, and if that fails, hard-cast them. Here comes the first Cataclysmic Gearhulk, or 'Balance on a stick.'
Here I counter Refurbish to forbid my opponent from reanimating a Gearhulk.
Here I sacrifice one of my creatures.
Removed for the win of the first game in the match.
For the second game I did something really dumb: use Harsh Scrutiny to help my opponent with their reanimation plan. It cost me the game.
I also got board-wiped. That didn't help.
I did stop a reanimation attempt.
But helped to stop another one. I lost the second game.
I won the third game. I was able to stop all reanimation and was able to beat hard and fast with my critters. Why can't these players take their money decks to tournament practice?
