Note that the last answer was a typo. He meant that Team Mike Tyson Approach was gonna win, not #5-Beggars.

Well, I <3 you ALL the same!

I still <3 the way you tried to cheat out on me by lying about not having a Flames while I knew and did the right play, implying me to shortcut, then even continue to argue with the judges about what you called 'bluffing'. I hope your moral standards have risen over the last few months..

No he don't, he played early harvest, GBB Open. I have a Flectomancer in play. he said, i have a response if you use your goblin. Bluffing for a Voidslime, I used the goblin and he finally had no answer.

I am new to the league, and recently had encountered Stryfe- in a T1 mini. I won, but it was a really close one, and at last we ended up discussing about deck tweaking too. A very nice and correct player, hope to be able to play some more with him. Also convinced me about trying to become a judge myself (which I recently managed to).

Type0Negativ, I said I didn't have flames in my hand, you activated jitte 3 times in resp to each other and I played flames. It was funny as hell when you freaked out.
