Finals: Keith Seldon vs. Kevin Rand
Would Kevin make it two weeks in a row for Mono-Red Aggro on the Open Series or would Keith take the trophy with U/W Control?
Keith goes to the board for Game 2.
Keith was on the play and on six cards while Kevin kept his seven. Keith had a Plains and Keven started things off by unleashing a Rakdos Cackler. Keith hit a Mutavault while Kevin attacked for two then played two Burning-Tree Emissaries into a Firefist Striker. Keith had a Banishing Light for the Striker so Kevin sent in the team and bloodrushed a Rubblebelt Maaka on one of them to knock Keith down to 9.
Keith drew for the turn but failed to find a fourth land and passed. Kevin deployed an Ash Zealot attacked with everything and ended the game with a Titan’s Strength as Keith was missing blue mana.
Kevin 1, Keith 0
Kevin gets ready for Game 2.
Both players were happy with their sevens and Keith started off with a Temple of Enlightenment and Kevin had a Foundry Street Denizen. Keith played an Island and Kevin went for a Burning-Tree Emissary, but Keith had the Syncopate to keep things from getting out of hand. Kevin attacked for one and Keith missed his third land drop and passed. Kevin deployed an Eidolon of the Great Revel and attacked for two. Keith failed to find the land and Kevin added a Firefist Striker, losing 2 to do so, then attacked with the Eidolon and Denizen and used a Titan’s Strength on one to knock Keith to 10.
Kevin 2, Keith 0
