Tournament Report. Yes, same local as the other posted, but a different POV.
About a week ago I get a call from my old Naruto ccg team saying that we're hitting up locals that are about an hour drive away, to keep some cash for today and get ready, then I realize, one of my team members has my main deck ;-;. We talked over fb, he told me the version that he was working on wasn't finished, it needed around 10 more cards, pretty difficult to get too. A week passes by and it's Saturday (Today). I look at the build, it was technically NvS. I remember that around 5 months ago (the last time we played at locals and the last time I played in general) he borrowed my 3x NvS. He made a decklist (which I might post later on, idk) and I noted every card needed. We stopped for breakfast and since I ate at home, I just bought some coffee. We got there eventually after talking about video games, life, responsibilities and random stuff. I meet up with a friend that I haven't seen in years because it's been years since we've gone to that local. He hits me up with the info, the tourney starts in 10 minutes and I get around 4 cards needed out of 10 but my friend let me borrow about 3 more, and make some jank fill ins for the rest and side board.
Round 1- Vs Revitalize Earth.
Game 1: I get steamrolled, my power shuffle pooped on me, didn't get anything useful, just a bunch of dead draws, some misplays and a Sasuke. I scooped.
Game 2: We draw decently, I got a god tier hand, dropped a Sasuke, Wagered it, Lee, Ink Fish, Naruto, got some needle ***os and won t4 with NvS.
Game 3: He drew poop, just a Choji that I subdued t0 and he didn't play another ninja till like t3 and he just didn't get a break even though I just got a mediocre hand at best.
Round 2- Vs. Perma-Mission Earth
Game 1: I got a decent starting hand, he got a god tier hand. He played BBQ, and a bunch of missions, got his Zetsu to like 8/8, dropped a Deidara and I got over powered as he had mental power too with Shikaku and Shikamaru.
Game 2: He had a way better opening hand than me, but my draw power came in and I effectively used all 3 of my NvS, the last one for game, close match, although it was pure luck and draw power.
Game 3: I made a bunch of misplays, didn't get that great of a hand, he steamrolled my early game with mental power.
Round 3- Vs. Puppets (Teammate)
Game 1: Mulled to four, already not liking the situation. One decision on my part gave him an advantage. I let his matsuri or something live (Having a Sasuke and Subdue), he then proceded to make huge teams with 2 Crows and over powered me as I didn't have much to begin with.
Game 2: I had a stall-ish hand with kisuke and Lee and a bunch of jutsu, but I didn't wanna risk it. He got out some big dudes and flamethrowers, blah blah. I ended up stalling, only getting about 3 brs early game, I got till turn 8, evolved my Naruto into 6-tails, but couldn't survive till turn 9 to Exodia him with my 9-tails as I didn't get enough stall.
As the tournament went on, I traded for the rest of my deck, finished it completely. I had a great time and got 4 promo Loopy Fist Lees.
- Met up with old friends from far away
- Had well needed bro time with my old teammates
- Finished my deck completely
- Traded a bunch of unlimited trade bait and got a 6th Hokage, Izanagi, x2 Madara and lots of fire stuff that I wanted for another deck.
- After game pizza.
-Got updated and motivated with the game, hopefully gonna do this monthly.
- Didn't top, expected with a janky last minute deck, made after about 5 months of total inactivity, rushed within 10 minutes. Although, NvS ftfw.
- Left home with about 28$, got home with 10$ ;-;
- Didn't get my Susanoó (Sasuke), but well, I got a lot of other things.
- I'm sleepy as ****, I remembered every deck, but the games weren't too specific into what really happened and they probably went a bit differently. I also sideboarded some pakkuns and Sabirus, but didn't mention when.
I had a really fun time with the crew and talked about our problematic memories about our love life/sex life and about the past of MTG on our way home. I gotta love my teammates. Ask for the decklist, if you want me to post it.
