Downward Spiral

I played UB control tonight again after last night, and my results are just getting worse. I was going from at least going 2-1 in these Standard Showdowns to now 1-2, and today’s win was just because I got a bye in the third round.

The deck definitely just did not come together.

I played against a Red/White Eternalize deck and Grixis Midrange and they kept on throwing out threats and I kept on throwing out answers but their threats came back or I ran out of answers and it just was terrible.

So I have Friday Night Magic tomorrow to practice for Sunday’s PPTQ, but I definitely don’t feel confident in this deck. I have everything for Grixis, but whenever I play it I just don’t feel it. I don’t have the practice with God Pharoah’s Gift nor do I have all of the Angels that get sided in and I don’t feel like shelling out for it. Nor for the Hazorets. Hey, I pulled my Scarab Gods and it is one of the most powerful cards in Standard. I feel like I should use it. I just can’t seem to find a shell that works for me or my meta.

It’s kind of frustrating.

But I am playing a game, so how much can I really comnplain?
