Deck Name: ABC-EL Daughters: A Chorus of Legionnaires
AKA: Pentex Is Still Good
Description: Shattering Crescendo + Emerald Legionnaire

This deck mainly does three things:
1. Get Legionnaires, 2. Shattering Crescendo, 3. Bounce bleeds.
It includes obfuscate stealth, a sturdy bounce package, a couple flavorful masters and a solid crypt of vamps with some very useful special abilities, all of which were utilized to good effect during this tournament.

Thanks to Darby Keeney and Karl Schaefer for tweak suggestions that made a meaningful difference.

Agent of Power was a game winner in my first round; being able to pull off one last Shattering Crescendo with Colette came in very handy. Pentex Subversion sealed the deal in the finals, once I was heads-up with Kelly's Lazverinus block deck.

Congrats, Bill! Very interesting deck & combination of clans/disciplines.

And what type of decks did the other four finalists play?

Thanks,

My predator was Mariya Hyryk, playing Kiasyd Gremlins bleed with Nocturns and Faerie Wards.
My prey was Norm Brown, playing new Anarch Gangrel vote with a heavy reaction package (Deep Ecology, Organized Resistance, Bait and Switch).
My grandprey was Adam Hulse; I don't know how best to characterize his deck, but it involved presence bleed and lots of wake, with a crypt of some (maybe all?) Toreador.
My grandpredator was Kelly Schultz, playing Lazverinus AUS/FOR wall.

Kelly and I were heads-up at the end; it was a Pentex on Lazverinus that sealed the win.

Was there a cut to a top 25?

Friday hasn't been reported yet, has it?
