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!

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.

Opponent on 36 life with 5/7 Wildgrowth Walker, 2 Jadelight Rangers, and 2 Merfolk Branchwalkers, plus Ritual of Soot in his hand vs. my monored deck ... I still won ...

Chandra, Tibalt & Experimental Frenzy can really win some absurd game situations.

I only post this because I absolutely hate people who declare "Good Game" way to early. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.

I've got a 2/2 Steamkin in play after T3 and on his T4 DoucheNozzle69XL420 ramps into Ilharg and declares "GOOD GAME!" Okay buddy. I play Rekindling Phoenix, Steamkin goes to 3/3 and pass.

DoucheNozzle69XL420 attacks with Ilharg and reveals Draakuseth!!! I really wish I could message this guy because there is no emote for "That's not how Draakuseth's ability works moron!" Obviously Ilharg meets a timely death due to gangblock. DoucheNozzle69XL420 realizes he's now in trouble so he decides to dump more Llanowar's and a Paradise Druid in an attempt to get Draakuseth out the old fashioned way. This, unfortunately for DoucheNozzle69XL420, sets him up to get blown out by Chainwhirler!

Good Game Indeed when DoucheNozzle69XL420 catches a Lightning Strike to the face while his Ilharg is sitting on top of his deck. DoucheNozzle69XL420 could not be reached for comment after the event.

I've met DoucheNozzle69XL420 in many games. They are the big reason I shut off emotes a few months ago.

My buddy who won a big Hearthstone event taught me that emotes are a free way to tilt opponents and gain a free rolling edge. If I were Sixty, after douchenozzle moronically reveals Draak, I would have spammed GOOD GAME to make sure he realizes that not only he made a mistake but that I think he’s a total idiot . He’d have trouble keeping it together

I always had emotes disabled during the eleven seconds I played Hwarthstone. I think I’d keep them on for Arena tho

I'm trying to find this Draakuseth even with my not owned filter on and still can't find it. I'd sure like to be in on the joke.

Drakuseth, Maw of Flames has a “when attacks” trigger

I was 6-2 in my first ever draft (generically gruul deck) when my opponent ramped into it turn 5 on the play and killed me. I needed 6 mana to take it out with two burn spells

Playing the Guild Battle event, I was on Orzhov and Opp was on Golgari. I got out to a decent start with Cruel Celebrant, Vindictive Vampire, and Grasping Thrull before Opp wipes the board with Finality. I top and play another Cruel Celebrant but, other than that, Opp and I are both drawing nothing but lands. Chip away at Opp for about four turns until I top Revival // Revenge. Not keen on bringing back a tiny creature that would be insignificant if Opp finds one of their fatties nor firing off Revenge just to get shut down by removal on the Celebrant (Opp had four cards in hand). I sit on it but nothing changes over the next two turns and I knock my Opp to 1 with Celebrant attacking. Fired off Revenge to deal the final point. :V

Oh NPE decks, you really are something...

Missed play of the day: postboard Simic Nexus vs. Esper control, I'm on the draw, and my hand is Hinterland Harbor, 1 Forest, 2 Island, Search for Azcanta, Veil of Summer, and Growth Spiral.

T1: he plays checkland. I play Forest and pass.
T2: he plays another checkland. I play Hinterland Harbor and pass.
(Bonus points if you see what I did wrong)
