In another thread- AceLeader and I were discussing the awful luck of getting an Old Willow on the first draw-the 2x Land Requirement and slow development of the trap make it a pretty terrible card to draw on the first hand. Last night I played a random battle- me and Ahdla vs. Whirlwind and Gemmory and my opening hand was the worst imaginable- I tend to be stubborn enough to stick in the game with a bad start- I rarely reset, but last night I had to. I was using my "Four Queens" Deck which utilizes all four colors with each color having a different strategy- It's one of my best decks, good creatures, good protection and moves pretty fast- but my opening hand was a Claymore, Gargoyle, Triumph, Evil Blast and Counter Amulet. I rolled onto a Green Land- Adhla put down a Sorceror on Red, Whirlwind put down a gremlin on a yellow and Gemmory rolled onto the same green land I occupied and put down a dwarf. I drew a Fire Giant and landed on a shrine that destroyed my Counter Amulet- the other three went and Ahdla and Whirlwind both placed another creature. I cast Triumph on myself to avoid discarding and drew my other Counter Amulet. Then Gemmory cast Despair- so for another two rounds, I drew no cards. Finally I did draw and got Manna- great, used it. Next Draw? Gasesous Form. Fantastic. Then Telekinesis, another Manna, Soltis, Lance of Odin and Paralyze. I couldnt take it and reset the damn thing.

What's worse than having the Old Willow on the first hand? How about having two of them on the first hand. Had thrown together a deck to try for the "under 20 rounds" medal and had these two creatures and all spells show up for the first 5 rounds. Completely pointless.
About my third or fourth attempt at winning 3 vs 1 (strategy being lapping, pain, and getting lvl 5 kelpie early) I started out with nothing but armor. NOTHING. And then I got hit with 3 holy words and a backwards. Oh the horrors of that attempt.
sidenote- Later succeeded and SAVED THE REPLAY! Eat that compy!
