Belgian National Championship 2022
Brussels, Belgium
July 10, 2022
3R + F
33 Players
Organizer: Emiliano Imeroni
Winner: Bram Van Stappen

A quick overview

33 bloodthirsty Methuselahs assembled to compete in the largest Belgian National Championship ever (the closest being the 2010 (!) NC with 31 players). The Outpost shop gave us the usual great setting... although with somewhat more crammed tables due to the new floor layout.

We had players from France, Netherlands and Germany, with attending nationalities including Spanish and Australian (!). But the real change with respect to previous edition was a relatively unprecedented 15-strong Belgian attendance, which is a proof of the renaissance of the game in the plat pays.

You could basically see all decks you could expect to see, plus some fun surprises (Karsh! Dual Forms!)... and at the end of the preliminary rounds the five finalists were exactly the ones bookmakers predicted.

You can find photos of the tournament on the Facebook event page .

The finals' seating was as follows:
Bram (Massassi guns&bounce) -> Serge (Al-Muntathir Legionnaires) -> Vincent (Giotto&IC) -> Marius (Nephandus) -> Axel (Anarch Gangrel toolbox).

The final was a highly technical, tactical (and talkative) affair, very tense for those involved, quite boring for those watching. Bram did not find Massassi in the crypt but his Bakr immediately torpored Serge's Al-Muntathir to slow the Summon History Legionnaire engine down. After this, a long and relatively inane conversation on the present and future paths for the game (and possible deals) took place. Vincent, despite four Giottos in his starting crypt, could build up quite comfortably, and finally ousted Marius - whose Liquidations and Ashurs decided to stay well put in the deck - with votes. Then, Axel started pressing Serge to "overextend" in an attempt to stop Vincent, and this finally allowed Bram to oust Serge with few minutes left on the clock and claim the Championship.

Result: Bram 1,5 VP (winner as first seed), Vincent 1,5 VP, Axel 0,5 VP

Many congratulations to the one and only Belgian Champion, Bram!!! And my eternal gratitude to all the players for making it such a great event!

Thanks for the report and perrings of each round!
Would it be possible to publish decklist from all the 5 finalists instead of only the winner's deck list please?
