Tero Aalto

We planned to visit Stockholm to go and steal Swedish Champion title back to Winland (Finland). The whole trip was succesful since Esa-Matti did steal the title Saturday, and I was in finals also, and was pretty close finals.

However our planned was also to play a tournament both ways, going to Stockholm and coming back to Helsinki by ferry. We played those tournaments in various restaurants or bars on Ferry between Helsinki and Stockholm.

This was the first one, and Tero won that tournament, so congratulations to him.

I have asked him to provide his decklist and also hopefully write a small report of his tournament after this post

Finals Seating was following:
Tero(Dmitra/Baali vote deck) - Noora(weeney Auspex) - Esa-Matti (Huitzilopochtli MMPA) - Teemu (AAA deck) - Otto (Khursid Legionairres)

After soldiering through the whole Paris Week of Nightmares with one single deck (The unnamed), it was high time to change into something else for the Swedish Nationals trip. I didn't land very far away, though, because the deck I chose wasn't only based on my old signature deck but also emplyed quite a few Baali friends.

One of my motives was to try and make the most of the last chances to play Parity Shift in its old form. I was expecting violent metas (and was right), so I decided to improve the combat defense by including Unleashes. The previous versions had included Scout Youngwood, and Arishat as the only Baali, but I decided the other Baalis would do just fine, and their specials would come handy (I used all of them, too).

The preliminary rounds of the tournament were very difficult with rush decks all around. In the second round, I brought up my first minion after an hour and 50 minutes, just to be immediately rushed and eaten. Luckily though, I had somehow managed to win the first game and squeezed into the final as the last seed.

In the final, more or less everything went my way. Khursid behind me wasn't drawing his Legionnaires and the weenie Auspex in front of me couldn't match my consistent five-stealth actions. I was in no danger whatsoever during the whole game and just rolled into a completely unexpected sweep.

Since there's a travel to be planned next summer... how long does it take from Stockholm to Helsinki by boat?

Ship leaves around 18:00 and, IIRC, arrives around 09:00 next morning.
(actually it could make the trip faster but the schedule works nicely this way)
