Belgian Limited National Championship 2022
Brussels, Belgium
July 9, 2022
3R + F
14 Players
Organizer & winner: Emiliano Imeroni

A quick overview

14 players assembled for the first ever Limited Belgian Championship... draft events are rare these days so we might as well make the few ones that we play count! :evil:
This was also a "warm up" event for the constructed Championship on the following day (here is the report for that one, congratulations Bram!).

Each player drafted a mix of sealed and "home-made" product, detailed here : basically, 2 Jyhad boosters and 3 home-made boosters, made from First Blood and New Blood decks with a sprinkle of vampires from the Berlin Anthology.

The sheer power (for a draft) of the First Blood and New Blood decks resulted into a much more "constructed" feeling than in traditional draft events, with focused, effective decks (often mono-clan!) that had no problem ousting people and preventing games going to time.

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

After three hard-fought rounds, five players sat to play the finals in the following order:
Axel (Nosferatu fight-ish) -> Serge (Malkavian S&B) -> Marius (Epikasta & co. politics) -> Alexandre (Ventrue bleed/vote) -> Emiliano (Toreador bleed/vote).

Axel chose his seating hoping that the very aggressive bleeds and votes Alexandre's deck was capable of would stop Emiliano in his tracks. However, an early Toreador Justicar played by Emiliano and supported by Marius provided a crucial swing to the balance of votes on the table. Axel ousted Serge and Marius ousted Alexandre, but then a same-turn combo of Domain Challenge + Ancilla Empowerment sealed the win for Emiliano's Toreadors.

Result: Emiliano 3 VP, Axel 1 VP, Marius 1 VP

Funnily, Axel and I now occupy the top two spots of the Limited world ranking, thanks to a whopping two tournaments played together! LOL! :silly:

Thanks to everyone for a super-fun day of drafting!
