Grand Prix Manila 2012


Last weekend was Grand Prix Manila 2012, held at the SMX at Mall of Asia. I don't really consider myself a “regular” Magic player anymore so I'm not going to give a full tournament report, though I will record some details for posterity. Let's start with the deck. I played some version of Naya Pod, limited by what cards were available as usual: A Pile of Naya [Creatures] 4 Birds of Paradise 3 Avacyn Pilgrim 1 Ulvenwald Tracker 4 Strangeleroot Geist 2 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben 1 Daybreak Ranger 2 Borderland Ranger 2 Blade Splicer 2 Fiend Hunter 2 Wolfir Avenger 1 Phyrexian Metamorph 2 Hero of Bladehold 2 Huntmaster of the Fells 3 Restoration Angel 1 Oxida Scrapmelter 1 Acidic Slime [Spells] 2 Birthing Pod 1 Bonfire of the Damned [Lands] 4 Copperline Gorge 4 Razorverge Thicket 3 Sunpetal Grove 2 Rootbound Crag 2 Gavony Township 1 Slayer Stronghold 2 Cavern of Souls 4 Forest 1 Mountain 1 Plains [Sideboard] 1 Ancient Grudge 2 Ray of Revelation 1 Zealous Conscripts 2 Garruk Relentless 2 Celestial Purge 3 Thunderbolt 2 Arc Trail 1 Surgical Extraction 1 Oblivion Ring

Most interesting play today: blocked a Strangleroot Geist with a Puppeteer Clique. Still knew enough rules to predict I'd end up with both!
