Zvi Mowshowitz

Zvi had 21 points, Jensen had 19. They both need to win out to make Top 8 and Huey would also need some serious help from his tiebreakers.

Game 1 was pretty straightforward: Zvi didn't draw any white mana until he was way too far behind. Huey's blue-white deck isn't exactly fast, but it didn't need to be to win this one. All he had to do was play Peek and Zvi conceded as a response. Huey said "All right ... Peek for the win." Zvi then corrected him to "Peek for the slightly faster win."

Huey got out a Psionic Gifted creature and a Puppeteer in game 2 of the blue-white mirror match. He saw (via Peek) that Zvi had Kirtar's Wrath in his hand so he was careful about committing anything else to the board. Zvi wanted to wait on the Wrath even though Huey knew about it so Aether Bursted the Gifted creature and tried to control the board withWilliam JensenNomad Decoy. Huey also had Aether Burst so that set Zvi back. Each player retrieved his Aether Burst with Scrivener and Zvi Wrathed for a small advantage the next time Huey was tapped out. Huey promptly played Amugaba and then Persuaded Zvi's Nomad Decoy. Zvi did have a Cloudchaser for the Persuasion, but he soon found himself extended his hand to congratulate his opponent. "I just never got the cards I needed to fight this kind of matchup," explained Zvi. "If I ever use my Aether Burst again I just lose, so I scooped." Turns out Huey had 2 Aether Bursts of his own and the matchup really was hideously lopsided.

Final Result: Huey 2 - Zvi 0
