2nd Töölö Grand Ball
Helsinki, Finland
February 11th, 2017
19 players, Standard constructed
Winner: Otso Saariluoma

First tournament this year in Finland. We had great attendance of 19 players. This tournament was supposed to be arranged in one of our local players home again, but pre-registered players were so many that the home was without a doubt too small, so we had to figure out a new place so it was arranged in another place, in a place arranged by another local player, the place was small but much better suited for almost 20 player tournament, so we had a great tournament once again. So special thanks to Tero Aalto, who took time to figure new places, and eventually Jaakko Nurro who provided our venue for this tournament.
Without them we wouldn't have manage this tournament.

So we played 2 rounds and Final, and in the end finalist were as following
from first seed to fifth seed

Otso Saariluoma
Tommi Hakomaa
Petri Wessman
Jukka Pasanen
Matti Palomäki

The finalist timed out the final so as first seed the winner was declared Otso Saariluoma,
he promised to post his decklist once I've made this report, he might even tell a little about the final, if he wants.

Here's the list I played to get 3 vp +2,5 vp in the prelims and glorious 0,5 vps in the finals to win the whole deal. The author of the deck is Akseli Jalava; we switched decks prior to the tournament and I got the better end of the deal, apparently.

The seating in the finals was:
Matti - weenie Malks with Madness Network and Talbot's Chainsaw (drawing no copies of either in the finals)
Petri - g5-6 Khazar's Diary with lots of Wraith-tech
me - Montano Purge/Mind Rape
Jukka - !Brujah anarch stealth bleed (Undue Influence+Power of One+Spoils of War)
Tommi - Eldest are Kholo breed/boon

2 hours, some passionate discussion and 2 Autarkis Persecutions later, no-one got ousted, so I won as the highest seed. My game was basically ruined by Petri's Calrton burning my Montano, but Petri didn't get to do the actions to put out the wraiths to oust me because of weenie malks with permanent intercept. Tommi was the closest to be ousted: constant pressure by Jukka's !Bru bleeders plus 2 Delaying Tactics by Jukka during the same turn got Tommi to 1 pool before he bounced back to healthy 20-ish pool total in one turn.

5 Montano
2 Ambrosio Luis Moncada
1 Marcus Vitel (basic)
1 Gratiano
1 Lucita (adv)
1 Banjoko
1 Ignacio, The Black Priest

Masters: 21
3 Information Highway
7 Zillah’s Valley
2 Dreams of the Sphinx
2 Villein
2 Heidelberg Castle, Germany
1 Direct Intervention
1 Wider View
1 Elysian Fields
1 Pentex Subversion
1 Giant’s Blood

Actions: 21
6 Govern the Unaligned
4 Mind Rape
4 Baltimore Purge
2 Graverobbing
1 Camarilla Vitae Slave
2 Banishment
1 Ancient Influence
1 Reins of Power

Action Modifiers: 30
12 Freak Drive
4 Shadow Play
5 Shroud of Absence
2 Blanket of Night
2 Tenebrous Form
3 Conditioning
2 Enkil Cog

Combat: 2
2 Shadow Body

1 On the Qui Vive
1 Delaying Tactics
4 Deflection

Total 80

I'd suggest dropping Lucita for 3rd Moncada and adding probably at least one Villein. Camarilla Vitae Slave is cute but not worth the effort. Monastery should probably be in there, too.

P.S. I'd love to see the other lists in the finals too, so if you feel like sharing, just post them below.

Here's the Brujah antitribu anarch stealth bleeder. Based on a similar design of Guilhem Marrannes, just added more irrelevant crap. Thanks to Otso for loaning me few small !bru vampires. Btw the biggest single bleed the deck could pull out in theory is eight. Adding irrelevant crap cost me since the bleed bonus to oust was one card away before Tommi's bloat turn :)

1 DeSalle
1 Father Juan Carlos
1 Gold Pan Dan
1 Axel Von Anders
1 Rodrigo
1 Toby
1 Alessandor Garcia
1 Smash
5 Anarch Convert

Masters: 17
1 Anarch Free Press, The
1 Anarch Railroad
1 Anarch Revolt
2 Archon Investigation
1 Carfax Abbey (didn't find !bru hunting ground)
1 Club Illusion
2 Information Highway
1 Powerbase: Los Angeles
2 Pentex Subversion
3 Twilight Camp
1 Two Wrongs
1 Wash

Event: 1
1 Narrow Minds

Actions: 17
1 Crypt's Sons
1 Smash and Grab
15 Undue Influence

Action modifiers: 38
6 Leverage
3 Monkey Wrench
14 Power of One
1 Red Question, The
14 Spoils of War

Combat: 8
2 Bollix
6 Unholy Penance

1 Poison Pill
3 Delaying Tactics

Total 85

After playing for this version I'd say -1 free press, crypts sons, unholy penance and +1 anarch railroad. Sort of depending on meta Archon investigations and Two wrongs(love this card) can be dumped too and just choo choo more... Was a bit torn about adding Red questions, if you have more undue influences it can be harder to find actions for them.

Here's what I was playing:

Deck Name: Khazar's Wraith Mob
Author: Petri Wessman ()

Khazar's Diary deck, with some new tech and heavy focus on wraiths. Fun deck to play; use allies and bleed bounce to stay alive (and do some nibble bleeds) until Khazar activates, then try to get a big stealth-bleeding wraith mob. Paolo's special has amusing interaction in this phase :).

In case you're wondering: the Puppeteer is there (even though it's not unique) because it's a nice cheap blocker and with Shroud Mastery I can sometimes actually use its special on a suitable weenie.

Tweaks I am considering: add some burn-option allies to make sure I have enough wraith fodder in ash heap, maybe swap one On the Qui Vive for a second Funeral Wake.
