@Shax we should really get going. Or have you already created the thread and I missed it?
Just thought I would take the opportunity to mention how much I’m enjoying reading other people’s games in this tournament. The level of play is really high, and I’m seeing a lot of variation in the strategies being used - lots of really good games going late with a lot of back and forth!
mdn1111 hasn’t responded or posted, so they are now officially dropped. Anyone paired against them has been given a BYE instead (and it does count as your normal tournament BYE).
I’ll post standings alongside the pairings starting in Round 4.

Lol Casta has been on fire, me not so much Give this deck a try and see what you think, it’s a bit of a struggle early game for me!
yet i find the red starter the best for early pressure, and hasted units dinosized are rlly scary! (exp those damn gliders!!!)
Thanks for the heads-up. An MVP deck with Bashing makes me curious. Will check it out later!
Wow, and I’ve just noticed that he replaced Feral. I always thought of Bashing as the no-penalty Feral for multicoloring.
I suppose the kicker is Bashing Tech1s with Midori?
yes. also neutral starter loves midbandori. Tederf becomes a 1 gold for 2/3 D: older bro 3/3 for 2 gold.
A bloomed maxbandori (he grows flowers in the beard) is a flyier that can kill a tech build per turn, damn him!
From watching his games, yes. Midori is his go-to hero, buffing Tenderfoot and Older Brother, and then Iron Men later on. To me, it’s a study in why Midori was nerfed I dread to think what it would be like if he was playing with pre-nerf Midori…
pre nerf midori was imo absurd in such deck. tf costs 0, OB 1, iron man 2, hounds 0 and so flagb.
midbandori also would +2/+2 instead of 1/1. couple that with peace and cadets, and start crying, imo
I actually really liked the look of @cstick’s deck (Demonology/Balance/Fire) - but I guess his results didn’t back it up too well…
It did really well in RACE. I think he had tough match-ups this tournament.
Thats the nature of Swiss, it can be unforgiving a bit.
Need to start tonight. Been busy.
