I think something missing in the "Tempo" segment explanation of Luis' explanation was the reason why he took the damage, and waited until the end step to bounce the Cyclops, instead of bouncing it before he took damage.
Most noobie players would choose to take no damage, and bounce the Cyclops during the attack. If that's done, Day9 would have been able to play the Cyclops again during his second main phase, but by bouncing it at the end phase, Day9 would be left with open mana and unable to play the Cyclops again, thus creating tempo.
As a long time MTG player, I feel like what Luis did to Sean's hydra when he cast Griptide was incredibly rude. It's one of my pet peeves in Magic. Don't cast your spell and move my cards for me. He cast Griptide, and before Sean had time to learn what the spell did or what was happening, Luis slipped his Griptide under Sean's hydra and rapidly flicked it away so it flew over to the side of the table. General rule of thumb of a fun MTG environment: don't move your opponent's cards for them without their permission. You're allowed to look at their cards to learn what they do, but not physically remove their cards for them. Bad form.
19:22 LSV put his bestowed creature in the graveyard instead of putting it back on the battlefield when it died. This misplay lost him the game. Or he was nice enough to misplay and give Sean the win not sure which one.
the first time i watched other people play in a video, that i enjoyed. in these protours and streams all i see is cards for ants where i cant even see the artwork and have no idea whats happening, no audio either so just a blurry mess which noone who doesnt follow this format for many years can understand.
Personally, I'd go with the Fury deck but that's just me. I generally prefer aggressive decks to control, and Shaun's mana mojo where he got 17 mana was awesome. I know that probably would not happen to me, but it'd be awesome if it did
Problem was, Sean should not have been able to monstrosity again with the same hydra the second time. Monstrosity is once per game, per unique card. Since that hydra was the same hydra that was returned to his deck that he drew, the monstrosity would not be possible. Took me a while to catch that!
