Sanchez had a pretty brutal start and it would seem like Cartechini had little chance of ever winning that one. Sanchez had earned the right to begin the match owing to his superior Swiss standings and led with Elvish Mystic.
Maximiliano Ramir Sanchez delivers the beatings.
He then followed that up with double Goblin Rabblemaster and topped it off with Stormbreath Dragon, ending the game as quickly as it started.

Cartechini led with the Fleecemane Lion and Rakshasa Deathdealer, a decent start for the Abzan player. Sanchez, however, killed both of them with Draconic Roar and Wild Slash.
That was inconsequential though, because Sanchez booked his seat in the semifinals with the help of double Stormbreath Dragon.
Mariano Cartechini falls to double Stormbreath Dragon.
