Astoundingly, both worked well. I still got horribly mangled though. Green seems to be the most played colour, followed shortly by white. Both decks I centered around casting cost five. The RU deck was red with splash.
The 'when you play an arcane strip land from your deck 'spirit is awesome. MTG: Sokenzan SpellBlade is broken. Well, it would be if it didn't cost so much. (Is it me, or does this card have entirely too many creature types? --FR, who used two in his red/green deck and lost miserably) Blue honden and other blue draw cards made a deadly combo.
Format was starter of champions and 3 boosters of saviours.
Round 1. Playing versus a RW deck, I misread sokenzan and died to its overpump. From 14 life when I would have won next turn :( Second game I played the black mage traitor someone - (three black and x, x/x, tagrget player loses x) Very nice. Still lost to the white kirin though. Awesomely evil.
The soulshift mechanic is very very crappy. At least I can never get it to work.
Playing against a GW deck. I had to shut down an eight and a half tails with life drain - but the combo (spirit that sucks land plus tap elf to put land into play, cap with the black mage or any other huge casting cost stuff) worked and I won.
Second game, seitched to the RU. A ghostly prison kept me back for ages - (I kept attacking with a doubled-up akki) but meant my hand size stayed up so that senzoku was a win. Blue hondens are great. We were both a bit manascrewed this game.
Totally manascrewed both games, playing against someone with a slightly better RG deck, that used the same green ocmbo as me. Won the friendly though. I hate hate HATE glitterfangs. Especially when there's an artifact giving them +1/+1 on the table. I'm also loving the way they trigger spiritcraft. I really have to pull a GR deck together from this.
Playing against a BG deck - my combo went off nicely - but he slammed down an unkillable nezumi (some equipment or other) so I couldn't let anything die! Thus after acquiring a horde of creatures and just as he started to bring out the huge things, I slammed in for 17 points of damage and finished with the mage. I love the mage. I traded it bercause I don't play black. I got a kirin, but I am a fool.
Very strange final round. I switched to the RU deck, and got manascrewed by drawing NO blue mana. How odd. Still, a bit of direct damage kept the field clear, used MTG: Inner Fire to get a turn 3 MTG: Oni of the wild places (which he prompltly killed), frostwielder did its job and Akki, Sezuki to win. I think he got manascrewed a bit, too.
There are some really nice spritcraft/hand-size decks to be made.
