Jorstedt went first and started with a Specter's Shroud, an innocuous piece of equipment that had proved very useful to him yesterday as well. He stuck it on a Krark-Clan Grunt and after Echoing Ruining Moore's Vulshok Morningstar netted a Tangle Spider from Moore's hand.
Moore bust out a Tangle Golem to take the offence back to Jorstedt and chumped the Grunt with a Transfixer to prevent the loss of more cards. Moore made a Darksteel Ingot, losing a Plains from his hand to the Shrouded Grunt.
A Pearl Shard came out for Moore but it wasn't doing enough to stem the bleeding. When an Alpha Myr appeared Moore was facing down three creatures with none of his own. He scooped and went onto the next game.
Jorstedt 1 - 0 Moore
Moore chose to play in the second game and was less than pleased with his hand. He managed to summon a Transfixer while Jorstedt brought out a Arcbound Stinger. He used a pound coin to represent the +1/+1 counter.
"Mine's only worth 1p," Moore said, summoning his own Stinger and dropping a penny on it.
Jorstedt replied with a Golem of his own: Pewter Golem.
Moore reached 6 mana and passed his turn without playing anything.
"Hmm, I wonder what," Jorstedt said, expecting the obvious Tangle Spider.
Preventing two damage wasn't really enough as Jorstedt attacked with both his goblin and golem and then cast Savage Beating with entwine. Richard took … well a Savage Beating really. The card really does do exactly what it says on the tin.
Mattias Jorstedt beats Richard Moore 2 - 0
