Spellweaver Championship Final #9 – The Outcome

13/02/2017

A new Masters Final and a new Spellweaver Champion. But oh, wait… this is not a new Champion, this is Lorenthiel. Ladies and gentlemen, a second player (after Peacekeepr) achieves the amazing feat of winning a second Masters Championship title!

Congratulations, Lorenthiel!

 

Lorenthiel is a player known for his persistence and dedication in the Spellweaver competitive scene, and his careful and thorough analysis of the metagame. He is also a good deckbuilder, and has a vast playing experience under his belt, so his second Champion title was surprise for no one.

As expected, Healmelion, the deck which gained a lot of popularity lately, was vastly popular in the Masters Finals tournament too. The deck attacks the opponent from a couple of different directions – it is able to put up a good fight, but at the same time it can pull off a life-gain win with Sunblessed Priest, Angelic Temple and Word of Grace, while also threatening to end the game in an instant with Hermelion‘s hero skill. It is the natural predator of Dragon Combo-Control, and it also fares well against aggressive strategies.

But the real surprise of the tournament was Mond0‘s Shamans deck. Mond0 would simply ban the aggro deck from his opponent’s line-up, and his Shamans would basically guarantee him an easy win.

Another big deck in the tournament was Grand Reunion with Ka'ainu. The tournament was a blast to watch, and among amazing plays and remarkable turnarounds, we witnessed not one but TWO victories with the alternative win condition of Grand Reunion.
