I did the most red mage thing ever last night. Got to play first in person commander game since last February. Since there were 5 of us, we each played a C21 deck, I was on Prismari.

We’d already been playing about three hours. I spent most of the game doing nothing because I didn’t draw a land until turn 15 or so and someone blew up my mana rocks. I finally managed to get out Charmbreaker Devils and next upkeep got back Mana geyser.


It was very late in the game at this point and all five players were still in, so I got 40 mana off the geyser and just started going off. By the end of combat phase I had about twenty cards in hand, killed two of my opponents, and had a storm count of 28, which I built up to cast Fiery Encore thinking I’m about to kill the other two players. Then I read the card to the table and realized I misread it as “creature or player” in my excitement over my turn and it already having been a long game.

I had such a massive board, I could have just passed turn and easily won next turn. Instead, I deck myself with my own storm card. Out in a fiery blaze of glory. A+ from Dean Nassari.

@Tayatranscendent and so the final attack was @ajanionthespot 's low-key Witherbloom "okay, this little tramply thing has 30 +1/+1 counters; what's your life total?"

Also an absolute flavor win.

@Tayatranscendent Between this and your "oh, I'm just gonna copy and OVERLOAD this Noxious Gearhulk ETB ability to turn it into a boardwipe" I have difficulty seeing how anything's ever going to top this as "most notable commander game I've ever played."
