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.
