Round 6: Garett Young vs. David Kolschowsky
Back to his old tricks after some time playing Dredge, Garett was playing Charbelcher today. David knew it, but there wasn't much he could do about it—Burn wasn't known for its versatile disruption, after all. Garett expected a quick match!
Garett's poised for a Top 8 finish with his favorite archetype.
Turn 1 Land Grant revealed two Gitaxian Probes, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Chrome Mox, and Empty the Warrens. Paying 2 life to see Goblin Guide, Fireblast, Lava Spike, and Price of Progress, Garett fell to 16 before casting Chrome Mox with no imprint, followed by Lion's Eye Diamond, Rite of Flame, the Rituals… and Empty the Warrens for 18 1/1 Goblins.
Garett 1, David 0
David mulliganed to start game 2, in search of some sideboard hate no doubt, while Garett quickly kept. David's six weren't any better, so he dropped to five… then four. Starting Mountain and Figure of Destiny, David passed. Gitaxian Probe revealed Mountain and Chain Lightning, which meant Garett could get to work.
Removing two Guides, one of each color, he cast Desperate Ritual into Seething Song, with Taiga and Lotus Petal putting him to seven mana. Then he played Goblin Charbelcher for the deck, ending the game on the spot—awkward!
