  1. ummm correct me if I’m wrong but you can’t block sack with stitcher’s apprentice since the whole thing has to resolve before you declare blockers.

    • @LyndonPerry Well you can chump with the stitcher and than sac it to get ONE MORE turn of chump blocks, my comment (wasn’t fleshed out properly) was meaning if he kills one of my other dorks and I can get 1 creature going, that homunculus can block sac forever. Does need of of my other 6 guys to die first before it works.

  2. I remember you messaging me and telling me about this draft, I kinda died laughing.

    As a semi-pro Canadian magic player once said, “Sorry bro, bad beats!”

  3. Did you realize that with Alchemist in play, any creatures you mill, such as Lab Maniac, get exiled? You could’ve milled Maniac and never checked his exiled cards. I think that would’ve changed your line of play towards surviving and hoping for the mill G2. Similarly, game 1 you could’ve slowed down after seeing the Maniac and tried to work a Undead Alchemist/Grasp of Phantoms combo to exile the Maniac, although it would be tough around Memory’s Journey.

    • @Slone I didn’t realize at the time honestly on. Ryan was telling me at our PTQ (if this is Ted) that was one of the I think 3 things he saw you doing that you didn’t realize either. I didn’t think of that at the time and it certainly was wrong good post, didn’t think of it at all until just now! But ya with the Journey it makes it sooo hard haha. Possibly winnable!

  4. Also, sweet deck/archetype, I’d love to see more vids.

    Re: the delver deck, you can’t expect more than 2-3 of any given common to be opened, and getting 6 opened in 24 packs is the outlier for sure. Still, I’d love to see that deck in action, I imagine T1 Delver, T2 Delver, Delver has to be the craziest opener ever.

    • @Slone Ya Jared Gushattey gets all the props for developing the Devler PLUS Mill plan, when I “force delver” I just try to go UR aggro and play things like Neonates and such to go with all my tempo/bounce, and hope to get lucky. The Delver + Mill just gives you a backup plan in the already strong mill strategy!
