So I watched the videos from Wizards's point of view and then spoke to Him briefly because I noticed the misplays. He admitted that giving the audio commentary somewhat threw him off his focus, (which made me feel bad because he misunderstood the audio request). I explained that it was mearly to hear the game audio and not provide commentary. I was listening to Zen music relaxed and focused during the three games.

Taking a closer look at the games and considering the Fiery temper misplay in both games one and two, i've come to the conclusion that games one and three would still be in my favor however game two I could've lost, putting me at a 2-1 record heading into game four rather than the 3-0 match result.

In game one Casting the Fiery Temper after my energy counter resolved wouldn't have mattered if done correctly because I was holding a blossoming defense. Wizards was limited in lands and wouldn't have been able to play much faster later on to catch up. Maybe the game goes one or two turns more. If he would've spammed creatures I wipe the board with the expertise.

In game two however, not using the Fiery Temper on the hydra as its ETB energy effect is resolving cost wizards the game. If the hydra dies, I'm down to 11 with a bomat courier holding at least on card and a Chandra dropping next turn that doesn't get killed. i still kill the bomat courier with grasp but wizards gets another card from it and has a Chandra that will kill my Ob Nix when I kill one of the two apprentices.

Given that I felt I had an unfair advantage that probably affected the outcome of one of the three games, I asked Wizards about a rematch - we can count the score as 2-1 and play further - He declined politely.

I felt the need to get this off my chest and congratulate Wizards on making it to the finals. Thanks again to the organizers of the tournament, both Wizards and I would very much like to participate and others if more will come around before the game is shut down

I felt also that WIzards underperformed his abilities on this last match, I played both of you and I can say you guys played those decks with cunning expertise.
We will try to run another tourney in the next weeks, but for the time being enjoy your championship!!
Ps: Sando had managed to get some coins from those **** at Wotc, so you don't have to spend your precious and useless coins foiling your decks! XD

I can't access that either :( it's all blocked

Thanks. no, snake doesn't put extra loyalty counters on PWs (would be OP then).
It works with everything else though, putting extra +1/+1 counters and energy counters on everything making most other cards in the deck OP -
So Longtusk Cub gives you THREE energy counters when it hits and gets TWO +1/+1 counters with its activated ability

I´m trying to create a batch for your signature but before I send anything I will ask Holy to enhance it a bit, You can chose the batch text to fit your liking I went for a Garruk image because of your deck colors, remember that your chosen "title" will go to your reddit profile also ;)

Can I get some suggestions for the txt? This is unfamiliar territory for me.
