How do you write about a game of Magic so that it would be entertaining to read?
omg recording a game and then writing it would be amazing
I think it could be cool, but I am just stuck on -how- it would be written, you know?
Clearly, the answer is to write it in full Vorthos.
"Tapping into the memory of a scene most recent, the fruitful and vast plains of Theros, I recalled the image of a man, blessed by the five gods themselves, brazenly presenting the heads of monsters he slew as trophies to each god in turn. In that moment, the very essence of his being came before me - this Soldier of the Pantheon - sword drawn as if an extension of my very will, dark eyes glaring at the foolhardy Planeswalker before me."
With Jeskai Ascendancy combo being a real thing, maybe it’s time for someone to start pulling their own weight around here.

what are you running? I’ve seen that ascendancy is rather fragile but I’m wondering how well it can hold up…
Mardu Aggro. My toughest matchups are lists that run a heavy amount of red burn spells, since I regularly do something like 8 damage a game to myself to pay for the price of an untapped land base. Jeskai Aggro decks are probably going to be the biggest perpetrator of this, but if they become large enough an issue there are definitely more spots I can devote to my sideboard to help.
The main reason that my matchup is so good is because of 4 mainboard Mardu Charms, and some number of Erases and Thoughtseizes out of the sideboard. Crackling Doom mainboard is also fine here, although not ideal.
It’s funny how many people are playing Jeskai Ascendancy Combo on Cockatrice now. Because of this, I’ve also learned that I have an incredibly good matchup against them. 7-1 so far in testing.
Unfortunately, there’s also been an increase in popularity of the Jeskai decks, probably my weakest matchup. Something like 7-6 against that deck.
