This quickly became a battle of the weenie fliers as an Arcbound Stinger appeared on either side. Grant also had an Pteron Ghost while Chan brought in an Emmisary of Despair. In the kingdom of the one toughness monsters the man with Viridian Longbow is king and Grant proceeded to shoot Chan's airforce out the sky.
Chan charged in on the ground with a Vulshok Berserker, trying to take advantage of Grant's slight mana screw. An Alpha Myr bought the Englishman time and soon the bow was switching hands to double ping Chan's creatures.
Grant 1 – 0 Chan
"Good luck. Keep it real," from Grant.
Chan elected to go first. He zipped out a third turn Dross Golem only for Grant to use a Myr to whip out a turn 3 Juggernaut. Grant took six on the following turn as a Berserker came screaming it. He replied back in kind with the Myr and Juggernaut and then cast Blinding Beam to prevent Chan's creatures from untapping. With a Viridian Longbow cast the same turn the Englishman was looking good.
A Consume Spirit from Chan finally got rid of the Juggernaut and brought him back into the game. Once his guys got to untap he had 9 power worth of ground force against Grant's Skyhunter Cub and Iron Myr. Another Berserker charged in and Grant was forced to trade the Cub and chump with a Myr.
Grant 1 – 1 Chan
Both players thought for a while and seemed a little unhappy with their hands, but elected to keep. Grant whipped out a Leonin Scimitar and Alpha Myr. He then followed it with Soldier Replica. Chan hadn't even cast a spell yet.
An Emmisary of Despair appeared for the Portuguese player. Grant hit him for 4 with the Myr and Scimitar'ed up Replica.
The Emissary came in with a hasty Berserker and the Replica took one for the team to take out the flying menace. Grant continued to be aggressive, dropping a Spectre's Shroud on the Myr to strip an unneeded Mountain from Chan's hand.
