Round 9 Jon Finkel vs. Antoine Ruel
A lot of matches like this have seen the light of day yesterday and today at the Pro Tour. Reanimator vs. Reanimator. Both these gentlemen are running the Blue-Black version of the deck with some differences, but still, they tend to do the same thing.
Jon then fetched his own Pitfighter Champion - Rorix Bladewing - with Entomb. He Exhumed it and served for 6, bringing Antoine to two precious life. Antoine had to fetch a land with his Delta though to get land that wasn't even more painful. Afterwards he fetched a Mana Leak with Mystical Tutor and kept his Visara at home this turn. Jon entombed a Visara of his own at the end of Antoine's turn. He attacked his Rorix into Visara, mimicking a real pit fight right there. Visara wins though - she tends to win pit fights by cheating and killing the other off without combat. Jon tried to Recoil the Visara during Antoine's attack step but that was Mana Leaked. He then fetched a Life/Death with Vampiric Tutor, cast the Life part with help from a City of Brass and served with 2 lands to take the game.
Final Result: Jon Finkel 2 - Antoine Ruel 0
