Hey guys so yesterday I went to locals(finally). I was happy to finally be able to go as I have just been so busy lately, of course I entered the tourney. When signups were over there was over 50 people that signed up, more than our usual 30-40 so it was a big local.

I play trunade then play reborn to revive shien, i then go into trish with kageki, kagemusha and kizan I remove gorz(score!), then i play double edged and game over.

Top 4: vs gravekeeper
3 of us wanted to do a top 4 split but this guy didn't so we had to keep playing.
Game1: a grind game, he had answers to my plays and I had answers to his until he flipped spy and got decendant and I lost.
Game2: another grind game but i summon trish then double edge( I used mst on his necrovalley) and gradually won.
Game3: Another grind game this one took forever but he gradually got more card advantage on me and won.
Result of Tourney: Top 4 finish
Notes: Pretty good finish I just wish that we could have split but oh well, i still don't like playing with sams it is just that i feel that since I spent money on the deck that I will use it but only till the format is over. Thanks for reading!
