Finals: Daniel Olivieri vs. Will Fleischman
Will powers up a Swiftspear.
Daniel started the finals with a Gitaxian+Probe after his mulligan to five and passed after playing Misty+Rainforest. Will cracked a Scalding+Tarn but Daniel did as well to Stifle it, but Will used a Force+of+Will, pitching Treasure+Cruise to get a Mountain and play Monastery+Swiftspear to get in for 1. Daniel found a Delver+of+Secrets on his second turn and passed after adding a Scalding+Tarn to his board.
Will sent in the Swiftspear for 1 and deployed Young+Pyromancer. Daniel didn’t flip his Delver, but he did have a Lightning+Bolt for the Pyromancer and attacked for 1. Will played a second Swiftspear and Pondered to pump them both then used a Gitaxian+Probe to see a Spell+Pierce and Tarmogoyf, before serving in for 6. Will ended his turn by playing Delver+of+Secrets.
Daniel flipped his Delver off Force+of+Will, but fetched it away, getting a Tropical+Island and attacked for 3 to knock Will to 10. Daniel played his Tarmogoyf and passed back. Will also flipped his Delver from Force+of+Will then used a Forked+Bolt on the 3/2 and attacked Daniel down to 3. Daniel had his own Forked+Bolt that killed off a Swiftspear and the two players entered a standoff until Daniel found a Nimble+Mongoose, allowing him to attack with the Tarmogoyf.
Will found a Delver+of+Secrets and passed, sitting at 6. Daniel drew and sent both his creatures into the red zone forcing Will to chump the Tarmogoyf with his Swiftspear while falling to 3. After the attack Daniel Brainstormed and passed back. Will flipped his Delver off another Force+of+Will and attacked for lethal.
