The one thing of note is I notice a player playing Counter Oath. He is at the beginning of his turn, his opponent has one creature in play and the player does not intend to pay echo on his lone creature. The player tries to stack the Oath upkeep effect and the echoing creature. Yes you cannot put the Oath on the stack if the condition is not met so I stop, correct the player and explain why he cannot do that. What I find interesting is that this is the second time I have found good players (in the first case, it was a pro player) not understanding that you cannot put things on the stack if conditions are not met. Most players see that if you have Masticore and Squee in hand, you will not get Squee back but Oath is more difficult probably because it is in play whether Squee is in their hand at the beginning of upkeep.

I guess it is one of things to watch for when you see somebody playing an Oath of Druids deck.

Happy New Year to all.
