So, this deck ended up 1-2ing but I made some hideous mistakes in deckbuilding and a couple of epic misplays in R3 including not knowing how to play fireball... and attacking my sacred wolf into a circle of flame. Both of which cost me games against a not very good player and not very good deck. But then again... I can't really consider myself a good player for that day.
I don't think playing red was worth it, and I don't think playing trip companions was a good idea. Probably should have brought in the croc for fireball and kept my manabase more consistent. I was in the mindset of "always play fireball" but I think it was too greedy here.
LISTEN ALONG WITH ZACH:
Revival by Gillian Welch
The original Broadway cast of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (yes this felt a little weird to draft to...)
Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull - I have yet to get fully into Jethro Tull, though my Mom has his (nearly) complete discography. This is, however the one album that I know fairly well and I like it a lot.
American Beauty by Grateful Dead
