flagrantangles wins 3-1 vs @wampuh
- He opens aggressively and I mostly just block until my hand is nice and juicy. We do some scrapping and mostly trade moderately evenly. I notice that he keeps attacking into my K-Spins and so keep playing them honestly. With Positive Spin and Patriot Mirror, I begin to eke out a lead. Two truths delivers me from evil by keeping my hand nice and perky. Near the end, I spin another K and tax throws. I toss out a 5 to see if it lands. It runs right into a Windmill Crusher. I follow it up with a straight and pick up an Ace. Wampuh powers up for Aces and I have some SUSPICIONS. I spin a Q and play it honestly. It honestly bonks a Checkmate Buster. I combo into a 6 for lethal.
- I got utterly bodied here. He got a lead in the beginning and kept me on the back foot until I landed a 7-attack to deny the perfect. It wasn’t enough and I D I E D.
We block for a bit before he snatches me with a K-throw. After that, he hits me good and fast with a Thunderclap into 10 combo. After that, I bonk out two throws with Queens, which helps me even up the life totals. I start feeling pretty confident as I get the vortex up and running and then I’m suddenly on the back foot. I spin a K and then reveal Queen hoping to punch out another throw. It runs into a block and I get chip so I spin a J and then use my known K to throw. He catches wise to my shenanigans and counter throws me. I figure I’ve got ACES. Let’s use them. I get E N T A N G L E D. I gold burst on wake up to beat out CMB and pick up my aces again. I figure he means to throw my cowardly buns so I toss out a 5 attack. It hits his six. He lays down a FD. I decide to play my CotG to MURDER him. He blue bursts it and I’m not happy, but I’ve got a spin so I’m not worried. I spin my J and then throw with a 9. I get walloped in the mouth with a TJT combo. I attack desperately with a three and undercut his 4. He Rock Armors and I do some calculations. I’m at 22 points of damage so I can’t die. I don’t joker and he combos into a Q+. I’m at 4 life and worried. I spin J and then I draw 2 Truths. I pick up another Jack and a Queen. I play the Jack honestly this time and he Stone Walls me. We’re back in neutral. I do the only reasonable thing. I gold burst again and get two more aces. Due to a power up earlier and the final one I topdeck, I have all of them in hand. I spin J, tax blocks, and then play CotG to take the game.
Due to a technical flub, wampuh simultaneously reveals and destroys the CMB he had put together by discarding an Ace after the powerup phase. He gets some damage in by crushing some windmills but then I dodge his wily thunderclap. It helps that while I have been conditioned to believe that he will attack into K-Spins, I’m open to the possibility that he will start throwing. I spin a King and then toss out a 6, which defeats CMB and then combos into a delicious 7Q++. And then I do it again. 60 damage in 2 combats is PRUY GUD. Not to mention stuffing CMB. I use 2 Truths to reload my hand and pick up another 67Q. I didn’t have enough bravery to play it again and he tosses my finally honest K-spin. That doesn’t keep me down, however. I immediately throw while KD and catch his block. I combo into Q++ leaving him at 9 life. I spin my K and then play Patriot Mirror. It hits and down goes the mighty wampuh.
GGs, wampuh. You are the bravest, truest boulder I’ve ever encountered. All other stones will be measured against your legacy.
