Tetsujin no Oni
So, after barning a decklist from John Friggin' Rizzo of Friggorid infamy, setting Steve and Paul up with the best two decks in Standard, and a last minute tweak of two of the decks to be compatible, Steve, Paul, and I settled in at Table 4 for round one of the last convenient Pro Tour Qualifier of the Team Constructed season. We dithered a bit during registration about which way to line up the players... and made the Good Play of the Day and put me center seat, with Steve and Heartbeat on the A seat and Paul running Ghost Husk in the C seat. Full report here
We've been loving the format for the huge difference it makes to be working as a team where your teammates input is important in how the games feel; and the ability of your team to carry your deck against random bad matchups.
There were some amazingly amusing events, including stting down across from friggin' Rizzo with a deck that differed by 6 cards in 75 from his.
And at the end of the day, I look down at the cards as I am picking up my deck and say.... "Holy cr@9, we're going to Charleston!"
My itinerary has me leaving Albany on 15 June at 1840, returning 19 June at 1600.
