Otso Saariluoma's tournament winning deck with 2GW7 and 1,5 vps in the finals.

Deck Name: Gangrene Bleed
Author: Otso Saariluoma
Description: This brew is a remake of my first tournament deck from 2004. According to my deck building philosophy back then, this deck tries to accrue a critical mass of permanent effects and win in the late game. Hatch the Viper was insanely strong and in hindsight I'd probably adjust the deck to rely more on it.

It was a really nice tournament with people from all over Finland showing up. The meta was pretty grindy, casual and combat heavy. In the finals we had:

Aksinya Animalism rush/wall (5th seed Teemu S.) -->
Emerald Legionnaires + Anarch Revolts (4th seed Jani) -->
Setites with dominate and Vampiric Disease (3rd seed Marko S.) -->
Protean bleed/wall (1st seed Otso) -->
G4-5 Ventrue lawfirm (2nd seed Niko)

The Ventrues were killed by crosstable revolts and the Setites were eventually crushed between the Legionnaires and the Protean wall after which the table ran out of time.

Everything ran really smooth and in good spirits. The feedback from the players was encouraging and we look forward to hosting Ahrimane Protectorate II.
