Benjamin Caumes, a Frenchman, and Hans Joachim Höh, from Germany, met in the Quarter-Final. Caumes piloting the most successful deck of the tournament so far – Lackey Sligh. The German was running an odd White Weenie with a Blue splash that ran such oddities as Nova Cleric. Höh won the coin flip and elected to play.
Höh morphed a second Rebel, and missed his fourth land drop. Caumes wasted no time in taking advantage of this by making a second Port and the deadly Sparksmith. With his pain-free mana Ported, Höh took two when he made a True Believer and then sent his now unmorphed Whipcorder attacking.
Caumes 1 – Höh 0
Tangle Wires were quickly switched for Cursed Scrolls by the Frenchman whilst the German boarded very strangely: he left the 2 Worship in the board, having obviously decided that Gilded Drake was an essential card in this match up, having brought them in alongside 2 Seal of Cleansing and 2 Seal of Removal.
Höh went first again keeping a one land hand with a bunch of bears, a Sergeant and a Mother of Runes, which he laid on the first turn. Benjamin also kept a dodgy- hand with a Barbarian Ring being his only source of mana.
Caumes made his first creature of the game, a Goblin Cadet, whilst on six life having shot himself nine times with the Ring, which after Höh's attacks, left him on 6. Höh did nothing during his next two turns, which had left the Frenchman time to make a second Cadet and, more importantly, a Mountain.
Höh's death throes began. He did nothing during his next two turns except lift his pen to take damage from the Cadets. He finally mustered a Parallax Wave in defense but died to red spells that were pointed at his face.
Final Result: Benjamin Caumes wins 2-0
