WMCQ 2016 first leg - standard

Philippines had just finished its first of three legs of 2016 World Magic Cup Qualifiers (WMCQ)
The format is standard, and we had 486 attendees on the said event.

Overall I placed 183th with a 4 - 4 - 2 record (win - loss - draw).
The event gave me 100 yearly points, now I am 200 shy on competing on next years WMCQ.

I played Mono Blue Brain in a jar deck, below is the deck list (link here)

The Narset are last minute changes, which i don't regret as I had ultimate her on the matches where she drop on the board.

Notable matches:

  • Drop a Narset, Ultimate her but still lost to an Ulamog (the exile 20 card clause hurts much)
  • Mulligan to 5 cards (on the play)... keeps a land, 2 anticipate, 2 nagging thoughts. The next 9 turns is a non land card. Conceded on the 9th turn, check my library, and land is still not coming until the 12th turn.
  • Playing against Prison deck, I will win next turn via transformed thing in the ice, but opponent top deck a Send to Sleep (2 off on the deck) for the win with his 12/12 land.
Note for playing the deck
  • Aggro is a tough match up, unless you have your engulf the shore.
  • Displacement wave is good against token decks.
  • Patience is virtue with this deck.
Changes on the deck
  • Will add hydrolash on main deck, replacing send to sleep. 
  • Will replace some Mage Ring Network for another UW land.
  • probably will add secure the waste, replacing Narset on the main.
    • this combos well with westvale abbey, with counter back up.
  • will move Narset on the side, narset is good against control (though the deck is already good at control match ups).
  • will add more Thing in the Ice on the side (very against everything)
    • remove engulf for control match up.
    • add thing for aggro match up.
