Force of Will Bahamut Deck Profile and Tournament Report, No matter the situation we have a ruler for that!

I’ve been working on my FoW deck for the last few days and I think I’ve reached a decent build for Bahamut for this format. While not applicable everywhere I’ve had some relative success in recent tournaments using this deck. Blazer hasn’t been an issue of late and thus Baha has been able to reign supreme! Except until I inevitably side into Reflect/Refrain game 2…

Local Tournament

Round 1

Vs Sylvia Yamata no-Orochi Reanimator

Game 1 I outpaced his set-up with Bahamut. Game 2 I sided into Reflect. I believed he managed to cheat out Yamata, but I had Refrain to bounce it (no Realm of Pure Spirits).

Win 2-0

Round 2

Vs Saint Alice World

Game 1 we have a decent back and forth and I get him to low life. He manages to pull off Alice’s World and direct attacks me with double Gwiber before using Deep Blue to summon Alice’s Little Assault Force to game me.

Game 2 I sided into Reflect and added in my Sign to the Futures, Split Heaven and Earths, Rapid Decay and Susanowos. I may have aggressively sided, but it did the trick as the Signs prevented him from getting anywhere near enough dudes for Alice’s World. I defeated him by searching multiple Splits off of Refrain.

Win 2-1

I dropped out from the tournament at this point though I learned that Mono-Red Reflect took 1st and 2nd place overall.

Twilight Wanderer Promos Tournament

So in order to divide up the promos and mat from our TTW we had a tournament earlier today to decide who got what.

Round 1

Vs Sylvia

I messed up this game not realizing my opponent had a turn 4 Slyvia using Fiethsing. I was forced to Thunder my own Cthugha to deny him the stone recovery effect. After that I barely pulled out a win by Splitting him for 600 and then closing with a Thunder.

Game 2  sided into Reflect and managed to drop Susanowo against his Slyvia. From there I made the proper decision to attack him directly boosting Susanowo to 1600 with Reflect/Little Red. After that with a Thunder in hand I J-Activated and passed with 1900 life. He summoned Lancelot prompting my unsummon with Refrain. He then crashed Slyiva to kill Susanowo before passing. I then cast Thunder for game.

Win 2-0

Round 2

Vs Faria

Never would I thought I would have this much trouble against Faria. She hit me like a truck for 1600 damage after I got him down to 1300 life with Bahamut attacks. I made a colossal misplay by running my only Flame Sprite into his Artemis Bow. From there I had no creatures and died.

Game 2 I sided into Reflect boarding into Deathscythe and Sign to the Future. I controlled the board with the Lancelot + Reflect + Little Red Combo to tear apart his light resonators. The 700 damage killed literally all of his small creatures (Grimm, Pandora and Percival).

Game 3 he made the mistake of casting Gwiber and then running over my Rukh Egg. I searched out Susanowo and crushed his Gwiber. Susanowo then took control of the game eventually trading with Faria herself allowing Lancelot to swing for game.

Win 2-1

Round 3

Vs Sylvia

Game 1 I had the perfect aggro opening and got my opponent to very low life. I finished him with Thunder to the face.

Game 2 I boarded into Reflect with Susanowo and Deathscythe, but my opponent also boarded into Reflect. I had an opening hand of double Cthugha, but luckily I drew into Flame Sprite for the easy turn 1200 damage. I dropped double Change the World and passed. He responded with 2 Marybells and a Bow. My opponent got behind as my Lancelots pumped by Reflect wormed their way through his bows. My most proud play though was when I had Flame Sprite and Cthugha on board staring down 2 Bows. I had a Lancelot in hand. I sent the first Cthugha which got hit by Thunder. Then Flame Sprite got hit by one bow. This gave the me the window to send in Lancelot for a boosted direct attack. I won the game on the next turn my searching Thunder both on my opponent’s turn and again on my own turn for game.

Win 2-0

 

Thoughts:

This deck plays like a 28 regalia Bahamut deck Game 1 and turns into Aggro Reflect/Refrain Games 2&3. This is great because my opponents often side incorrectly giving me a slight advantage (the only card that beats both decks is Barrier of Shadows and that does not beat R/R). The real benefit of this deck is the +200/+200 to Lancelot from Reflect which makes his 700 damage effect alot more consistent.

SDC16346-001

Anyway, I won this mat for the friends tournament (my first FoW mat!). I’ve been very happy with this deck so far, but I’m still actively editing it. I’m hoping to have a decent enough deck to use competitively at ¬†events.

Thanks for reading as always.
