His win condition was Twilight Prophet which I could destroy one time and after he revived it I also had a Conclave Tribunal for it.
The second win condition was a Doom Whisperer which he got in one of his last draws and it nearly finished me with the help of Chance for Glory.
But I top-decked the last Conclave Tribunal in my deck and therefore he had no win condition left and would eventually die to exiling his Lich's Mastery.


Why would he exile his Mastery? He still has a wincon of you decking yourself.

Maybe nothing left to exile - or in a bad spot and wanting to go out on his own terms?

i still had a lot of cards in my library, my deck is full of creatures + adanto, the first fort, so I am pretty sure i would have won.
But also the game already took a long time, so I can totally understand the concede.

Play of the day: after opponent played 3 Kaya's Wrath, I decided to go all-in and play both History of Benalia & Trostani while my opponent was tapped low. Both spells resolve. Next turn, opponent plays Mass Manipulation targeting Trostani and my tokens!! After Trostani's effect resolves he shame concedes. Lol :D

EDIT: Lol and in the very next game, another Esper control opponent uses Hostage Taker on Trostani and then casts it, tapping out. Yes, she still made two 2/2s, but I EoT Marched into Flourish and he conceded. Hah!

Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
Wow on the first game. What a waste of mana. Mass is intensive enough and then lose it all? Nuts.

WAR RANKED DRAFT
I´m UR spells against Orzhov something

So I got a buttload of draw spells in this deck, but this bastard cast Ashiok, Dream Render T4 on me... activates him 3 times before I can end him so now I´m racing instead of trying to win the late game.

I got Spellkeeper Weird and Saheeli, sublime Artificer on board so I could recast my draw spells but no this bastard exiles my whole GY and I´m flooding!! Then things start to get Ugly, he keeps dropping creatures on the board and I have to clear them with Chandra Jaya and a combination of Ral's Outburst and trades... my library is running slim by the minute but I need to find my answers and keep casting my draw spells...

Last turn -this is turn frigging #26 I checked on MTGA tool-
He´s got 2 blockers a 5/5 Rising Populace and a 3/3 + God-Pharaoh's Statue and 13 life

I got a buttload of mana Bond of Insight in hand and one mountain, Ashiok's Skulker, Kiora's Dambreaker a bunch of servos + my BFF Spellkeeper and 1 card left on my library!!

I take my time look at the board and try to find the way...

So I send the team for the alpha strike, I made a copy of Dambreaker with Saheeli he blocks my Skulker -I did not pay for the ability- and a Random creature, he is at 1 and hes got lethal on the back swing!

So I cast Bond of Insight put the last card of my library on the GY -thats a 6 mana bond of Insight- I get my Ral's Outburst and try to cast it but that **** is another 6CMC and I can only play 5 ... lucky me I had that mountain in hand, drop the mountain and burn him to the face!!!

It was beautiful!!

I really don't understand why people run that garbage God Statue. What a waste of a deck spot and 6 mana. The only time I've seen it carry its weight was vs a streamer who got mana screwed at 3 lands (and honestly wasn't going to win anyways at that point, but it killed any hope of getting back into it). Like, if you happened to draft Karn for some reason - sure, pick it up late pack for sideboard call up to animate a 6/6, but otherwise don't touch it with a 10 foot pole.
