Round One vs Jordan’s Loam Deck

Jordan runs marathons. Or maybe be ran one once and it made a strong impression on me so I think he runs them all the time. He is one of the first people I played a constructed match against since coming back to the greatest game in New Phyrexia. In my experience playing him he usually rocks some kind of burn or Boros deck. In a Legacy tournament he Price of Progressed me to death. This dude likes messing with lands and sneakily and quickly smashing his opponents’ faces.
