Finals report

The full game can be watched on Twitch .

I play first, with a good starting hand including The Parthenon, sadly immediately contested by Teylen. The first few turns are calm with everybody setting up and laying low, except Horus, who gets his !Toreador out and gets to work on Teylen.

Although Alex gets Mary Anne Blaire out and renders my Inner Circles useless for bleeding, I get Lucian, The Perfect out who's not affected.

Teylen finds no help on the table: I continue to contest The Parthenon, figuring I can get it back soon, gotcha does not block Horus' Kine Resources Contested and the Ventrue agrees to let the votes go through unopposed. I steal her Carlton Van Wyk with Entrancement, she gets ousted after 1h of play.

Gotcha gets Matasuntha and Massassi out, and is able to control Horus' !Toreador well enough. Scourge of the Enochians and Dragonbound hit the table, things are getting sour for the swarm deck. He gets ousted a few turns later, 1h45 into the game, by a twice-bounced bleed of mine. I use Golconda on Aksinya, as I figure gotcha won't bleed me enough for her to be useful at this point.

Alex makes a deal with gotcha, who saves him with two Eagle's Sight in exchange of taking me down first. I maximise the damage of my bleed, whomever they get bounced too. This fragilises gotcha's position and Alex finally gets fed up of doing nothing and try to go forward.

He is finally ousted, leading to a duel between gotcha and me, with only a handful of minutes remaining.

Having emptied my library and used the tablets to get all the stealth I could muster, I manage to get just enough bleed through the wall, gotcha plays it fair and quickly, leaving him at 3 pool with one minute for me, enough to get a bleed through and get the win.

--- Decklist

Deck Name: Girls Will Find IC
Author: Phoenix, from Jorge Delgado's
Description:

Nothing original, very close to Jorge Delgado's list from EC 2019.

I removed Giant's Blood as I find it's not so useful here and often a dead card, but it could be added. The Herald was instrumental in first round, but only goes into play if it can be useful against a swarm. I love having Archon Investigation as Aksinya's special tends to motivate the predator to bleed over 3.

Since often enough quite the opposite happens during tournaments, especially in the finals:

I would like to point out that gotcha = Bram van Stappen showed great sportsmanship, especially by not stalling with the time-out drawing nearer.
If he played just a bit slower in the last two turns of the heads-up, he would have won by better ranking due to time-out.
But he did not, and thus he allowed Phoenix' = Lionel Panhaleux' deck to perform the last minute oust.

THANK YOU, Bram!

Yep, thank you Bram for this sportsmanlike behaviour. I think many of us witnessed already the other type of players, even or especially at big tournaments. This is rare. Thumbs up.
