QUARTERFINAL 2 - ASH WEBSTER VS. CRAIG CHAPMAN

Webster started things off by dropping a trio of Planeswalkers, who were demolished with Hero's Downfalls in short order. Luckily for Webster, His Xenagos's accompanying Satyrs were enough to put Chapman on the defensive, and Webster was able to follow up with a flurry of angry dudes to take the first game.

The second game was Chapman's turn to apply insurmountable pressure. His first Brimaz, King of Oreskos bit the dust in short order, but he was able to keep the second around long enough - and steamroll Webster's defences with a few well-timed spells - to ride the powerful 3-drop to victory.

Chapman won the second game so blisteringly fast, we had to go for an 'Action Sideboarding' shot. Note the still-exhilarated judge to one side.

Chapman spent the early game gaining a ridiculous amount of life off the combination of Obzedat, Ghost Council and Whip of Erebos. Webster went about demolishing his opponent's life total the only way his deck could: by playing an insane amount of Planeswalkers and creatures, firing off a couple of ultimates, and clobbering the heck out of his opponent, invincible ghost collective or no.
