Game 1, I simply cast Sarkhan Unbroken on turn 5 on a stable board. It went down then up before my opponent conceded.

Game 2, I was all set to play Sarkhan on turn 4, but I opted to play another creature to ensure a stable board first. This resulted in my opponent
casting Duress and taking it. The game bogged down a bit with me flooded and him on Corpseweft. I learned that A) Corpseweft puts creatures into play
tapped after missing eight damage worth of attacks because I thought otherwise, and B) Stratus Dancer does not counter Reduce in Stature, however, my opponent got a
little aggressive with a 1/6 Wandering Tombshell, allowing me to Dash in a Sprinting Warbrute and easily race the Corpseweft inevitability.

In game 1 of round 3, my opponent played Kolaghan’s Command as Raise Dead for the Zephyr Sage I had just killed, plus it killed my two- drop on turn 4. Then came Tasigur. Then came
Silumgar’s Command. Then came Kolaghan, the Storm’s Fury.

Game 2, I was unable to get onto the board fast, and my opponent walled up with a deathtoucher and fliers. I tried to land a critical number of large
creatures and bash through, but the delay allowed my opponent to start casting card draw spells and easily take over the game.
