Unburdening the Bestial Soul: Pittsburgh
Homestead, Pittsburgh (PA), USA
November 4th 2023
14 players
Karl Schaefer

-- 1GW5 + 2 VPs in final, won on seeding

Deck Name: If Bram Played !Toreador
I took Bram's last to TWDs ("nobody bounces like Schumi does" and "GP BRUSSELS -
Blame it on Didi") switched to !Toreador and added some of my own seasoning, mixed it
up, and this was the result. Big thanks to Bram for solid starting decklists.

The deck performed differently in each round and some cards were strong in one round,
but did nothing in another. Overall the bounce component was gold in every game. I
totally picked the meta having enough bleed to make this deck shine.

Umh, after your introduction to this post, I was totally expecting 6 Ashur Tablets in this deck, 'cause: "That's what Bram said!" ;-)

Still, kudos for your win.

"Nobdy bounces like Schumi does" has no Tablets. But, yes, I did consider whether this really needed 6 Tablets to be "what Bram does." lol
