With no strong tribal cards for the first couple picks, I decided to just see what was open from the right. White looked open, so I had a preference for Kithkins to take advantage of the Morningtide pack. I didn't see any bomb Lorwyn Merfolk, so I stayed away from it once I concluded that wouldn't work. I was happy with the deck, though I wish I could have had one more 2-drop.

I beat a sub-1500 player easily in the first round, then played against a low-1800s player with the nut Merfolk deck in round 2. I lost the first game to his Drowner + Judge sticking for a few turns until I drew Weight of Conscience, and made a mistake using it on the Judge instead of the Drowner (he still had a Mothdust Changeling as a tap outlet). I had a couple more answers for Judge, and without a milling clock on me, racing may still have been reasonable if I drew an Extract soon. As it was, I had to topdeck Crib Swap within a couple turns, and didn't. I won game 2 with a good start. In game 3, I mulled to a 4-card hand with 1 Plains, 2 Islands and Avian Changeling. I drew Kithkin Greatheart for turn 4 and got a lot of early damage in while he was stuck on white mana, reinforcing the Avian with Bombardiers to eventually get him down to 2, but he got Fallowsage + Drum, then Sage of Fables, and played out a ton of Merfolk, while I'd drawn 8 lands and 4 spells. He had an Inspired Sprite to chump block when he was at 2. I drew Moonglove Extract, but waited until after combat to play it, which ended up allowing him an extra draw from the Inspired Sprite, and he had the counterspell. He swung back for the win with a Swell of Courage on the following turn.

So I misplayed both games I lost, maybe one of which I could've pulled out with slightly better play.

Lost in the second round.
