Yea I am quite confident he understands how to tech this deck better, but we’ll see how I fare
I’m now officially out of the tournament. Thanks for having me, everyone. It’s been a great pleasure (to lose three times ).
I might be lurking around (though without playing, I will hardly learn anything, at my skill level).
Thank you for introducing me to this PBF format. I’ll be available for some casual entry level PBF, if anyone is interested. Thanks to @EricF for organizing and general helpfulness.
And best of skill to all of you, especially the ones that beat me.
Be sure to sign up for RACE #3 if you haven’t already!
for what it’s worth, I feel like the best way for me to learn Codex was to forum stalk EricF and Marto
The best way for me to learn was to get stomped a LOT… and also lots of forum stalking.

I admit I am rooting for green mirror match… But that makes certain assumptions about how my game will go
Oh boy, this will be intense!
Game hasn’t been created. I determined it was easier to have my macro generate all the links, rather than copy them individually.
Round 6 will be delayed until at least one of the Round 5 matches finishes, or until Monday when I’ll feel justified in Adjudicating (or at least picking a winner for pairing purposes) @Alhazard vs. @Castanietzsche and @CarpeGuitarrem vs. @Zejety. Note that next week was set aside as a catch-up week, so this delay is eating into that time. Round 7 will be posted Nov. 10 as planned.
I’m chugging along as fast as I can…
I am confident my game will finish in the next few turns… Mainly cause I think I’m about to lose.
I like how the two matches I specifically didn’t call out are the ones commenting on their efforts.
Players who slow things down will be forced to play bashing in future tournaments
Would you care to elaborate for a newbie? Is Bashing really bad? Or really slow? Or really fast (I doubt it)? Thx.
I’m just being a smartass. Bashing is generally considered the only spec where you’re actually at a disadvantage if you play it. It seems to be tuned for the bashing vs finesse matchup (in the intro set), not the full game of Codex.
Bashing vs finesse is well balanced, but they are different versatile specs.
Unfortunately for bashing, it’s a more standalone versatile, as opposed to finesse’s more unique versatile.
So bashing is generally outclassed by other stuff, whereas finesse still has strong tricks you can’t find elsewhere.
Really not trying to derail this thread…
