My Life in the Zoo: Legacy Pt.10- 24 to Richmond

So here I sit, with under 24 hours till the big event in Richmond. I've been watching the Standard coverage for today's 5K, and the player total just kept climbing! 561, that is a bit scary, since many of these players may stay for the Legacy event, and it may be much bigger then I anticipated. More players, means more random decks, and less effective sideboards. Oh well, not much I can do at this point.

I did make a couple of last minute adjustments this week. I've been testing -1 Grove, +Wooded Foothills all week. My final call is to keep the list the way it is, but I need to get on the ball and pile shuffle every time. I refuse to lose games and matches because I fail to shuffle. After all the prep work I've put in, that would just be stupid. I spent a large portion of my time this week testing against CounterTop, in an attempt to nail down my sideboard. Turns out Shusher is just not getting the job done. There is simply to much spot removal, to try and ride this guy to victory against control. By contrast, Stoneforger Mystic continues to play like a champ, although I look forward to the day that I can simply run 2 Jittes.

Now that My deck list is finished, I just need to sleeve, brick, and write up the list, and pull together my gear for the event. I gave Bertha the weekend off, stripped about 12 pages out, and switched over to a travel binder for the event.
