there was a big drug problem at my school so they hired a police officer to supervise students but now he’s playing magic the gathering with the video game club
this is the fastest anything I’ve ever posted has gotten notes i think im going to be arrested
I had no idea you took a pic MC, I saw this re-blogged from someone else and thought; “What the fuck? That’s me from earlier today!” I’m the one in the ponytail and yes we’re playing MTG with a cop, he absolutely destroyed us all by the way, thought the internet would like to know that.
Edit: In case anyone wants the full story about the game, I was using a white/black extortion deck, CJ was using a black/red evil deck, Officer Dowd had a blue/black that mainly used nasty fliers, and poor john got the ‘not-enough-lands’ award using a red/green tribute deck. Which he absolutely would have dominated with otherwise.
It started off like any other 1v1v1v1, tentative attacks, nothing too daring. Then I used extort for the first time and everything went to hell. (Extort only costs 1 white or black mana, and is an ability on a creature that doesn’t tap it. It activates whenever I cast any spell, and deals one damage to each opponent, plus I gain all the life taken that way)
You’ll notice everyone has their setup roughly parallel with the table edges, except Dowd, the cop instinct told him I was a major threat right away, and he focused on me the whole game, even rotating his setup slightly to be pointed right at me. (subconsciously I assume)
At the same time he made an alliance with CJ, to which John and I responded with a collective “Bring it!” (they absolutely did btw)
We never stood a chance, and here’s why; my extort’s hit John as well, and there was nothing I could do about it. I felt so bad, I felt so so so bad, but it had to be done, I think I spelled his fate honestly.
Barely able to keep myself alive. (We started with 30 life each btw, house rule for longer games which are much more fun in my opinion.) I eventually fell to Dowd’s 5/5 flying harpy that also had lifelink. John was actually out first, but I quickly followed, after that Dowd easily swept CJ in the same turn as me.
He had had that fly/lifelink harpy since very early, and even with my concentrated effort, he still won the game with 48 life.
Congratulations Dowd, you soundly defeated us, and are Tumblr famous.
