Nery used Chainer's Edict to kill off a Nightscape Familiar, and Addle to take out Fact or Fiction. Another Edict dealt with the second Familiar and a third one killed Psychatog. With four swamps and Cabal Coffers in play, Nery would be able to recast them from the graveyard as well.
Probe took out Nery's Innocent Blood and Cabal Coffers, but let him keep Mirari, which he cast on the following turn. He was now in topdeck mode, hoping to take advantage of Mirari soon. Emmert on the other hand needed to play out enough lands to get the Upheaval/Psychatog combo, the only way for him to win this game.
A second Tog fell to Chainer's Edict recast from the grave, then Nery cast Addle, doubling it up via Mirari. "First blood," Emmert commented as he took a damage from Cephalid Coliseum while countering both of them. Another Addle a turn later drew a counter and its other copy took out a third Psychatog, with a fourth being in Emmert's hand as well. A few turns later, Nery was able to double-cast Mind Sludge, getting rid of his opponent's entire hand, including his last Psychatog and one of the Upheavals. As there was a single Possessed Aven in Emmert's deck, he was not ready to concede. He did, however, scoop to Haunting Echoes cast by his opponent a turn later.
In: Haunting Echoes, Phyrexian Arena, Mind Sludge
Out: 3 Mutilate
In: 3 Deep Analysis
Out: 3 Repulse
Emmert was forced to cast Upheaval at six mana, as Nery cast Diabolic Tutor the turn before, and Emmert could be fairly sure that he went for Mind Sludge. Emmert went for the beatdown strategy, getting a few points in with a Nightscape Familiar and using it to help cast a turn 3 Possessed Aven, before it fell to the re-cast Engineered Plague. He then cast Psychatog and attacked with the Aven, bringing Nery down to thirteen.
Unable to stop both creatures that turn, Nery knew that Emmert would be able to win by pumping his Psychatog on the next attack, and conceded the game.
Emmert cast Probe with kicker, then Fact or Fiction, then another Probe. In the end, he was left with a handful of countermagic and a Psychatog, while his opponent had nothing. A few turns later, he finally set off the Upheaval/Psychatog combo.
Final Result: Emmert 2 – Nery 1
