A visit to our new local gaming store

We have recently moved to a new city in the northern part of Sweden, and the day before yesterday, was our first time visiting the LGS here in Luleå, Spelkällan (roughly translates to “the fountain of gaming”). It was quite the cosy place, everyone was very friendly and in the background, you could hear the soundtrack from Skyrim – a perfect way to set the right atmosphere 🙂

We played modern, and since I didn’t know what kind of meta we would be up against, I brought my Jund deck, since I think Jund can perform ok against a big variety of decks. The list I am playing is a bit untraditional (as may deck lists almost always are 😉 ) and looks like this:

4 x Goyf
3 x Bob
3 x Scavenging ooze
3 x Tireless Tracker
3 x Bloobraid Elf

2 x Liliana o.t. Veil
2 x Liliana t.l. Hope

1 x Assasin’s Trophy
2 x Push
3 x Bolt
1 x Kolaghan’s Command
1 x Maelstrom Pulse
1 x Terminate
2 x Collective Brutality
3 x Inquisition
1 x Thoughtseize

3 x Blackcleave cliffs
2 x Blooming marsh
4 x Verdant catacombs
2 x Bloodstained Mire
2 x Overgrown Tomb
1 x Blood crypt
1 x Stomping ground
2 x Raging ravine
2 x Treetop village
1 x Wooded foothills
2 x Swamp
1 x Forest
1 x Mountain

It went as follows: Jeskai control: 1-2,  Grixis Shadow: 2-0, Esper control/reanimator: 1-2 and UG Delver: 0-2. Jeskai out-valued my Jund list in the classical manner, I couldn’t find my threats agains Esper and couldn’t find my removal against the delver deck. So it could have gone better, of course, but it was good fun! 🙂 I constructed this list with the idea that playing both Bobs and Trackers would give me good card draw and Tracker herself can become quite the body, if left alone on the battlefield. My result was also partly due to a couple of misplays from my part, so I haven’t completely given up on this build. But next time, I think I will try my Rakdos midrange deck and see how that performs. It should be better against control decks and based on the decks people were playing this time, control seem to be the dominant deck type in that LGS.


Before the store closed, I bought a Ravnica Allegiance display, which me and my husband will be playing sealed with during the weekend. After all the packs have been cracked, I will share what I got and what decks I built 🙂

Until then, have a nice day!
