The Decks (and Commanders we were using): Black/Green Elves (Varolz the Scar-Striped) vs Rakdos (Kaervek the Merciless) vs Evasive Maneuvers (Derevi, Empyrial Tactician).
I’m playing Rakdos, and Ninjat (playing the Elves) keeps hitting me with his miniature armada because I’m only drawing lands, meanwhile James (playing Derevi) keeps flashing in his commander to block any attack towards him (and countered Kaervek twice). I still have my turn 2 Quest for Pure Flame on the field and I draw a Sulfuric Vortex (my first non-land card since the start of the game.)
We go around the board once; I can finally play Kaervek again and I’m on 1 life. Next upkeep, Sufuric Vortex does the 2 damage to Ninjat, and QfPF is now ready to go off. I’m dead next turn, and James’ Deck has more damage output than the Elves.
Ninjat and I are both dead so I activate Quest for Pure Flame and decide to direct any damage dealt by Kaervek to James. Nin has 5 mana, but he has a bunch of Elves and Heritage Druid for extra mana. He plays Grave Pact, taps some Elves and plays Elvish Promenade (for 1/1 Elves equal to the number of Elves he controls) and then taps those new Elves for mana to play Bog-Strider Ash. Each of those spells costs 4 mana, so Kaervek deals 12 damage to James, doubled to 24 due to QfPF.
James is out. Sulfuric Vortex kills me. Elves win.
