Round 4: Ollie Schneider vs. Amiel Tenenbaum
Game 1 saw Amiel playing first and casting a second-turn Quiet Speculation for two Roar of the Wurms and a Deep Analysis. Aided by his Birds of Paradise, the first Wurm was made on turn 3 while all Ollie could do was play a Marble Diamond. The fourth-turn Roar spelled doom for the Englishman as all he had was an Engineered Plague in play (naming Birds) while the 6/6 French Wurms did him in.
Ollie mumbled something about not drawing Chainer's Edicts or Innocent Bloods as they sideboarded and prepared for Game 2
Game 2 began with Tenenbaum building his mana base up with 2 Sunscape Familiars and a Merfolk Looter. The 2 familiars were sacrificed to an Innocent Blood and Chainer's Edict as the Englishman decided that he too should started drawing more cards by playing a Phyrexian Arena. The damage started when Amiel cast a fifth-turn Wild Mongrel, followed on the next turn by a Wurm Token. Not daunted by the monstrosity, Schneider attempted a Corrupt on the Wurm but Tenenbaum had the Circular Logic for it. The next turn, Amiel checked with Ollie as to whether he was on 13 life before casting a Rushing River on his own familiars to get enough cards to feed the Mongrel into lethal damage.
Final Result: Amiel Tenenbaum 2 – Ollie Schneider - 0
