Damnit, just threw a game. Dominaria draft. Opponent has Shalai and six lands out. Since the start of the game he's been representing a 2-mana instant. Board state is:

Him: 3/3 Untamed Kavu, 4/5 Shalai tapped, 3/4 Sergeant at arms, two 2/2 Saproling Migration tokens, 4 life
Me: Yargle, 4/2 Cabal Paladin, 5/4 D'avenant Trapper with Dub, Knight of New Benalia

Relevant cards in my hand are another Yargle and Urza's Ruinous Blast. All I have to do now is attack with Yargle, play another, deal him 2 with Cabal Paladin, and then win the following turn with Urza's Ruinous Blast (which triggers Cabal Paladin again). Instead, the only 2-mana instant I can think of is Adamant Will, so I play Blast and attack with Yargle. Gideon's Reproach blows me out. Damnit. Why oh why didn't I check a list of instants first ...

Big Red (me) vs Arclight drakes.
I've just flipped 2 maps, have lots and lots of land in play. He's got a single Arclight in play but decided to go for it with a drake and terminal velocity. Luckily I've been saving a shock and 2 lightning strikes in my hand so I zap the hasty drake (but had to use 2 treasures). He holds back his Arclight to block my warboss and 1 token.
He's at 17 life and tapped out. I do the math (the last map scryed banefire) and go for 3 damage (trading warboss for the Arclight). I have 6 mountains, 2 flipped maps and 4 treasures and am still holding a lightning strike. He's at 14... I strike him eot and then finish him with banefire, simple... All I have to do is survive a turn.
He gets scared of my tokens and drops an enigma drake and electromancer to block but doesn't use the terminal velocity on his drake (I'm at 13 life, wouldn't have killed me anyway), so lightning to face, draw another banefire (fitting!) And banefire for 11.

Is it just me or banefiring for 10+ just feels so damn satisfying?

Especially against control decks who have a million cards in hand and cast Settle the Wreckage earlier in the game :D

Best Flame of Keld ever:

Anyone who plays mono-red probably knows that flame of keld usually only draws you 2 lands + an irrelevant card, but sometimes it realy shines like yesterday for me.

I was playing against turbo-fog (urgh..).
He has been fogging me constantly since T4, has a teferi at 7 loyalty and is at 22 life. Things are looking grim, but I have a decent board:
3x fanatical firebrand
3x lavarunner
1x rigging runner
1x steamkin (with 1 counter)
5 mountains.
flame of keld on step 3 ( last turn flame of keld drew me shock, lightning strike and a viashino pyromancer).
I have a risk-factor in the gy I can jump-start.

I attack, and get fogged keeping the steamkin and fanaticals back to avoid settle (was expecting it), luckily op has everything he needs but hasn't found nexus yet. I pretty much got to win this turn. So, I risk factor, ditching the viashino (he could take 6 damage or give me 3 cards), he gives me cards (big mistake!). I have 2 mana left, steamkin goes to 2 counters and I draw 2x shock and wizard's lightning. I give opp a Nice!

So math time:
Wizards lightning to face: 5 damage and 3 counters on steamkin. (He's at 17).
Shock to face: 4 damage and 4 counters on steamkin. (He's at 13).
Get 3 mana from steam kin and shock to face: 4 damage and he returns the Nice! (He's at 9).
Lightning strike to face: 5 damage and he's at 4.
Sac a fanatical: He's at 1.
Sac another: He's toasty.
:D

Beating down my mono black opponent with Vine Mare. He uses Rise from the Grave to reanimate my Carnage Tyrant, but since Rise turns the creature black, he still can't block it

RNA draft against a mill deck. He had 5 cards left in library, I had a lot more.

My board: 10 lands, bunch of neutralized creatures (with Slimebind Lawmage's Binding etc), Screaming Shield attached to 8/8 Gate Colossus
His board: Aeromonculus, Junktroller

He's dead right? I activate Screaming Shield, move it, and then activate it again and say "good game". But no! On his draw step, he activates Junktroller targeting Clear the Mind in his graveyard! I'm like, wth, and then I notice I'm holding Consecrate // Consume and use Consecrate targeting Clear the Mind. LOL. I couldn't imagine casting Consecrate in limited ever, but then it literally won me the game.

Assuming by the fact that Darkstar has 4 mana tapped, I presume Conclave Tribunal to exile Doom Whisperer happened during main 1.
Opponent is on 0 cards in hand and cannot draw any more cards so they have no way to win; but given the active Lich's Mastery and the sheer number of permanents they control it would take long to actually play out

He board wiped me and played an early Lich's Mastery. I couldn't do much against it, but my luck was that I flipped a Legion's Landing earlier, so I could get some life and let him exile a couple cards.
But I could never built up a good board state because he always destroyed every creature I had and drew a lot of cards because of life gain. Still I refused to give up because as long as he doesn't cast a win condition, I could still win in the long run.
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.

I don't get it. Opponent dies since Nova kills everything but Deathbloom Thallid leaves a 1/1, but he was way behind on the board anyway (?)

Oh come on and have some fun. Might have not been play of the day but it sure wasn't something they were thinking would happen. I was pretty far down in life myself. If that 1/1 hadn't generated there was no guarantee I would have won.
