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 . . .
