Adrien was one of the players who got rewarded by the erratic drafting and has ended up with quite a nice looking red-white deck with which to take on Franck's soldiers. He will be looking quite good if he can draw either Sparksmith or Lavamancer's Skill
Claudel stopped attacking anyway, instead just playing a Wingbeat Warrior and passing the turn. Franck drew his fifth land for Aven Soulgazer which Claudel attacked into, signaling to Franck that his morph was a Gravel Slinger. Canu didn't take the bait and let the Warrior through. It wasn't a threat anyway since Franck drew another Soldier allowing him to make the Daru Stinger a useful 3/3.
Franck made a near total lock with Catapult Squad on his next turn. This allowed him to be more aggressive since the Squad made I impossible for Adrien to block. Franck decided to take a very defensive standpoint, which gave Claudel chance to make his Sparksmith while still on eleven life. The combination of Aven Redeemer and Sparksmith had the potential to cause Franck's white-blue deck serious trouble so it was just as well he had a face-down Willbender in play.
Claudel cast Akroma's Vengeance, but it didn't help very much this time, as Canu had lots of Soldiers still in his hand. He played Gustcloak Skirmisher, Glory Seeker and Gustcloak Harrier. Claudel played Lighting Rift and Pacified the Skirmisher, but didn't really seem to grasp the point of Lightning Rift as he hard cast Renewed Faith and then died two turns later
Franck Canu 1 – Adrien Claudel 0
Claudel tried to use Gempalm Incinerator and the Sparksmith to finish one of the Stingers but one of Canu's many Piety Charms saved the day. Adrien now needed to draw Akroma's Vengeance fairly quickly. However since Franck was a game to the good he didn't have any real need to win this one, and decided to stop attacking. Aven Soulgazer ability to look to look at morphs he had already seen three times certainly didn't help Adrien with time running out. To be fair, Franck was actually winning the game anyway, as he could have been more aggressive if he had wanted to and he had more cards in his library. Adrien finally drew his Akroma's with four cards remaining. He cast both that and Avarax, but his Avarax was tapped with Choking Tethers. Canu then played the five soldier he had been hording. Claudel conceded when his Avarax was killed by Akroma's Blessing.
Final Result: Franck Canu defeats Adrien Claudel 2 – 0
