I went to the Ixalan pre-release event at Game Kastle. Kevin organized, and Andrew participated with us. Lindsay, Debby, and Marily were there. Marily brought her nephew and friend. I got an amazing draw, with a very strong green and decent blue. Lindsay was nice enough to get Steph some marzipan pastries, and they were adorable. Unfortunately since I didn’t want them to melt in my pocket, Lindsay held them in her purse, but we both forgot about it by the end of the evening.
In the matches I played I lost the first 0-2. Then I won the second 2-0 when a little kid scooped as soon as I played the Carnage Tyrant. I also got the best mythic land, also green.
The final match I lost the first one, then won the second just barely. The third went really long as he was doing a ton of life gain, then I did a lot of life gain, then we just hit each other until one died, which was him. I gave the cards afterwards and the look on his face was great.
After MTG we all went to Pho Vi Hoa and had dinner. I got the lemongrass beef, and it as amazing. I’m finding that at pho places I prefer to get the lemongrass flavored meat. It is always spicy and well flavored, plus it isn’t a ton of noodles. I couldn’t finish, but Andrew liked it and helped me out.
