Spellweaver Championship Final #16 – The Outcome

05/09/2017

Well, maybe Rinriet was thought to be an underdog. Our stream host The Fuzz included him in his “underdogs team”, that one is for sure.

However, he managed to prove everyone wrong by claiming the title!

Rinriet was sporting a deck line-up consisting of a Hermelion Green deck, known for its resilience and extreme power, and two combo decks alongside it – Burning Rage and Banshee Combo. So he basically had three decks that could win out of nowhere, and they did!

You can have a look at the decklists HERE.

In the final match his opponent Burdis banned Rinriet‘s Hermelion Green, choosing to play against the two combo decks.

In game 1, we saw a long and drawn out start against the Hermelion Green deck of BurdisRinriet managed to deal with everything played against him, until a Gomur Ironbeard stuck on the board, which quickly received a Haunt. Burdis attempted creating a huge board to try winning in a single turn, however a timely Suffocate – the second played copy in this game – managed to turn the tides. Rinriet even got himself Gomur with the help of Parallel Evolution, which got the concession from Burdis.

In game 2, Burdis started crashing quickly out of the gates with Hermelion Green. Even after the Burning Rage deck of Rinriet provided removal spells in the form of two Fireball and a Cannonade, one of the Fireballs likely hit the wrong target, because the Diogen of Burdis allowed him to double-attack for lethal damage with an Elf pumped up to 7 ATK/ 7 HP with the help of a couple of Might Emblems from Valor.

In game 3, Burdis had a slow start, while Rinriet had an early Forced Labor off of Burning Rage. The three angry Orcs quickly sealed the deal, and crowned Rinriet champion!
