[Tournament] 19XX Codex Asynchronous Fall Swiss (XCAFS18)


#41

@zhavier I can play my R1 bye against Eric so everyone’s even on matches, if that’d be good?


#42

Good thinking.

Round 1 @EricF will go as player 1 versus @frozenstorm.

  1. [XCAFS18] EricF [Feral/Growth]/Finesse vs FrozenStorm [Necro]/Blood/Fire

#44

Purple starter falling off hard without peace it seems.


#45

And Strength without Growth.
Lots of Feral Calamandra picks now, though.


#46

You’d think Necro/Blood/Growth or Necro/Blood/Finesse would be a thing, based on this.


#47

Lich’s Bargain + Blooming Ancients could be pretty silly.


#48

Was necro blood growth a fairly established good deck previously? I wonder if people are purposefully moving away from established options because of the format. I would say it took maybe 3 Yomi 19XX’s for the new meta to firm up so I’d probably expect it to take a few tournaments for it to settle.


#49

Necro + Blood and Growth + Necro were apparently established enough to feature in zhavier’s spreadsheet in 2 out of just 4 multicolor Quick Deck selections (along with [Past]/Peace/Anarchy and [Anarchy]/Strength/Growth).

In addition to the spec choices zhavier posted above, I’m kind of curious to know how many Lich’s Bargains have been teched over these first rounds…

ROUND 3!

  1. [XCAFS18] Cstick [Necro]/Present/Law vs zhavier [Blood]/Feral/Growth
  2. [XCAFS18] Marto [Necro]/Present/Balance vs CarpeGuitarrem MonoRed
  3. [XCAFS18] codexnewb [Finesse]/Necro/Growth vs thehug0naut [Feral/Growth]/Present
  4. [XCAFS18] charnel_mouse [Finesse]/Balance/Growth vs EricF [Feral/Growth]/Finesse
  5. [XCAFS18] Bomber678 [Necro]/Truth/Blood vs Dreamfire [Discipline]/Feral/Necro
  6. [XCAFS18] Nekoatl [Finesse]/Peace/Truth vs deluks917 MonoRed
  7. [XCAFS18] FrozenStorm [Necro]/Blood/Fire vs witspur [Demon]/Discipline/Finesse

And the undead bloodbath continues.


#51

Growth/Necro/Strength achieved some success, but I don’t think it ever was as inherently powerful as some of the other decks. I think I added it on a whim because it had done well in a tournament while I was making that part of the sheet. The other 3 multicolor were definitely established decks though. I should definitely add to the list other powerful decks that have emerged, but its not really an important to do item.


#52

I promise I’ll post tomorrow, I’m just still on camp for bit


#53

Looks at line up Damn, sad I missed this, lots of really good matchups for mono purple there.


#54

I know, right!? I was sad you weren’t around.


#55

ROUND 4!

  1. [XCAFS18] Marto [Necro]/Present/Balance vs Cstick [Necro]/Present/Law
  2. [XCAFS18] EricF [Feral/Growth]/Finesse vs Nekoatl [Finesse]/Peace/Truth
  3. [XCAFS18] zhavier [Blood]/Feral/Growth vs Dreamfire [Discipline]/Feral/Necro
  4. [XCAFS18] codexnewb [Finesse]/Necro/Growth vs FrozenStorm [Necro]/Blood/Fire
  5. [XCAFS18] CarpeGuitarrem MonoRed vs Bomber678 [Necro]/Truth/Blood
  6. [XCAFS18] thehug0naut [Feral/Growth]/Present vs charnel_mouse [Finesse]/Balance/Growth

witspur will get the bye, though if the round 3 match gets adjudicated, he may well get his 3rd loss.


#56

@thehug0naut You are delaying the start of your game.


#57

Apologies for the delay.

Now home and got my turn up. Will be able to play fairly quickly the rest of the week to (hopefully) make up for the delay.


#58
