Philly 5K: Daze of Knights at the Top Tablesbdm | December 6, 2008 | 4:31 pm
So a few weeks back, when I posted a link to the 20 Knights deck, Jake Van Lunen started tinkering around with a KnightWeenie deck. As he played more and more with the deck it resembled the original less and less but there were still some similarities.
Sigiled Paladin doesn’t draw any undue attention early on in the thick of the people-will-play-anything opening rounds but as Jake has continued to do well it has arched more than a few eyebrows.
He refers to the deck simply as Boros and Ajani Vengeant — those damned Planeswalkers again — gives him more reach than traditional WW decks. He was paired against Dave Irvine this round who was playing Reveillark.
“He was on the play game one,” said Jake by way of explanation as to how he went from 4-0 to 4-2 in the span of one side draft (which I won). As for the second game?
“He Primal Commanded my one red land and searched up Mycolyth,” sighed Jake. Did he devour? “He ate two guys. It was a Verdant Force plus.”
