Shuffle, Endeavour

Here are the results of last nights Booster Bash Launch Party (which coincides with the final launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour, hence the name of this article):

1st Place - John Herring

2: Andrew Haddow
3: Nathan Minter
4: Dan Martin
5: David Sanders
6: Nick Lewis
7: Colin Caplin
8: Gavin Scott
9: Olly James
10: James Haddow

Here's what I opened:

Rare - Puresteel Paladin.

Uncommons - Alloy Myr, Brutalizer Exarch, Whispering Specter.

Commons - Blinding Souleater, Chained Throatseeker, Glissa's Scorn, Glistener Elf, Mortis Dogs, Numbing Dose, Parasitic Implant, Sensor Splicer, Shriek Raptor and Volt Charge.

I was lucky in the sense that this is quite a controlling booster. Blinding Souleater proved really useful as the ability to tap an opponents only attacker/blocker helped me swing for extra damage. It also bought me a few extra turns to find what I needed whilst the other 'support' cards either removed or neutralized threats.

Having two flying infecters was how I won most of my games. If I needed a 'finisher' I could use Brutalizer Exarch's first ability to search up Chained Throatseeker.

Alloy Myr allowed me to tap for any missing Mana; which is an important factor in booster bash.

I'd like to thank all those who participated in what was a fun and interesting evening.

The club will be hosting a New Phyrexia game day, the theme of which will be block 'faction' constructed. More details to come . . .
