Ville Nevalainen won the tournament with pure record of 4-0. His RG-beats won the last round against BR-Goblins played by Mikko Haapa.

Metagame was:
2x RG
1x Suicide Black
1x GW-Ideal/Enchantress/Parfait
1x MonoU-Skies
1x BR-Goblins
1x GB-Meat
1x Staxx

Rest of the decks were either 3C, 4C ja 5C-control builds.

This tournament also offered an opportunity to put Topel's Skies onto test, as one of the players didn't have time to put a deck together due to a move and his vintage staples were still unpacked. I put the deck together with some minor changes, as didn't find all the necessary cards in time (Curfew & Aether Spellbomb) or some of the choices in Topel's Skies felt suboptimal in short test (Wizard Replica & 1 Dream Stalker).

The Skies was eventually piloted by Kari Tuominen placing 13th.

The deck I ended up piloting was again something from the rogue front, GWEnchantress/Parfait/Ideal-kombo

The deck has a lot of synergy between various cards and is quite mana hungry. It runs with close to 40 different enchantments and gains card advantage by searching & playing an early game enchantress. The deck has numerous silver bullets (Humility, Worship, Wheel of Sun and Moon, City of Solitude...) and combos like Squirrel Nest/Earth Craft and Stuffy Doll/Guilty Consience. Late game win conditions involve Replenish, Opalesence, Sacred Mesa and Mobilization to name but a few.

The first game was ironically against Topel Skies which ended up as a tie, and because of my play mistake: In one critical attack phase, I could have activated Genju of the Fields multiple times to gain multiple lifelinks and thus secure my following turns to back up Squirrel Nest/Earthcraft combo.

The only win was achieved against GB-Meat and that match up didn't pose any problems. Another tie was against 4c-control because of opponent's fetch/top combinations and my Dowscape which eventually won me the first game after we had traded bird tokens for 30 minutes of so.
