Fee Stake Helsinki IV
Helsinki, Finland
April 29th, 2012
3R+F
20 players
Otso Turunen (VEKN #3070120)

So, I ran the fourth installment of the Helsinki "Fee Stake"
tournament series a while back; a normal tournament with an extra
side prize for the highest scoring Anarch deck (with the Judge
deciding what's an "Anarch deck", just adding an Anarch Revolt there
doesn't count :).

We got 20 players, which is always a nice number since it gave us full
5-person tables.

The finalists were:
  • Juha Nyholm (No-disciple !Toreadors), 1GW 7VP
  • Ville S. (Toreador Grand Ball votes), 1GW 5.5VP
  • Lauri Salmi (Ishtarri Anarchs vote and bleed, see below) 1GW 5VP
  • Otso Turunen (Shamblers, see below) 1GW 5VP
  • Hannu K. ("Kingdon of Heaven", !Salubri with Daggers toolbox) 1GW 4VP

Many of the finalist decks were somewhat unusual. While Ville's TGB
voter and Otos's Shamblers were known archetypes, we also had Juha's
weird but effective !Tor no-discipline Palla Grande horde, Lauri's
Laibon/Anarch vote+bleed combo, and Hannu's Dagger-equipped !Salubris.

The seating was Juha -> Ville -> Otso -> Hannu -> Lauri. The Palla
Grande horde ousted Ville in about 20 minutes, with lots of !Tor
breed+bloat action going on. Next Lauri ousts Juha at the 1:20 mark,
using an Anarchist Uprising vote. After this, Otso ousts Hannu's
!Salubris with a well-placed Pentex and some bleeds (at around
1:45). This leaves Otso's Shamblers and Lauri's Anarch Laibon on the
table, and the final win goes to Otso and the Shamblers, with 6
minutes left on the clock.

All the finalists got some boosters as prizes, and Lauri got some
choice Anarch cards for having the best Anarch deck in the tournament
(which also came close to winning the whole thing). Down with the Man!
:)

Thanks to everyone, was a fun tournament.


The winning deck:

Deck Name : The Walking Dead, Season 6, Episode 47
Author : Otso Turunen
Description : I'm on a quest to play each clan in a tournament, in alphabetical order. After making it through Abominations, Blood Brothers and the like I thought, why not drive a Ferrari for a day, and put this classic together for the Giovanni. Both game wins were gotten by Pentexing my prey's untapped blocker at the right time, so another classic right there :)

Congrats to Otso for the win!

Any chance we could see the !Salubri deck? My cousin is working on one but it isn't that great yet.

Thanks,

Brandon

Congrats to Ode for another win!
Of all the decks I saw, I REALLY dig Juha's non-discipline !Toreadors.

Thanks for everyone that came in; the turnout was pretty solid.

A couple of pics from the finals.
We had a "shadow finals" going on and when I got to take the pics Ville had already been ousted so no evidence regarding him... :(
