    Bump de bump
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, this sucks. Slave of Bolas was on top of my graveyard, but the deck sat there on my desk for so long that at some point (definitely before we ever started the Explorers of Ixalan game) it was knocked off and I can no longer find it. Not going to tear the place apart looking for it right now. I'll just have to remember that the physical deck is short one card and it's Slave of Bolas and its position in my graveyard is recorded on this board (assuming you guys ever get another turn anyway).

    OK, I'll draw cards from Harvester of Souls for Bone Picker and Windrider Eel dying. UUD...

  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'll block a Beast token.

    Melkor, TomB, we don't have to confer for this. You can just post here how you're handling combat.

  12. Melkor Well-Known Member

  13. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Sun Titan brings back Vampire Nighthawk, Spidey dies, Melkor dies, TomB takes 3?
  14. Melkor Well-Known Member

    Sounds about right. I feel good that we're going to give Nicol Bolas his victory but obviously, this only brings him to even
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It's up to you Gideon! :p
