Round 4: Svend Geertsen vs. Nicolai Herzog
Geertsen opened with Basking Rootwalla, which attacked for three damage before dying to Chainer's Edict. The fourth turn came and Geertsen did not have another land, and simply played Bearscape. Herzog was having no problems, and summoned Phantom Centaur. Geertsen found his fourth land and brought out a Centaur of his own, but Herzog was waiting with another Edict to clear the way. Geertsen cast another Centaur, but Herzog just flashed back an Edict and dealt another five points of damage. With the game well on his side, Herzog joked "This is where a judge asks to check my decklist." Geertsen admitted, "That's what I'm waiting for." It didn't happen, and Geertsen had no choice but to scoop.
Geertsen- 0 Herzog- 1
While shuffling, Herzog mentioned that they both lost to the same green/red player and were depressed over the losses because their decks are supposed to beat green/red rather easily.
Herzog thinks, Geertsen sarcastically asks "Are you done?"
After that little exchange, Herzog cast Cabal Therapy, stripping away Circular Logic. Birds of Paradise was sacrificed to take out the Arrogant Wurm, leaving Geertsen with only one card in hand. Deed and Living Wish for Braids followed, clearing the board and punishing Geertsen for his unlucky two land draw, bringing him down to no permanents on the table.
Final Result: Geertsen- 0 Herzog- 2
