Before the tournament I was afraid a heavy Kiasyd dominance, but my concerns turned out to be wrong. Two players decided to enhance the Samedi's ousting power by adding several copies of "Virtuosa" to their deck, giving "Agent of Power" an unexpected use. Ever heard of using a Samedi Melpominee before? Both players scored one game win during the tournament. I was dealt a Tremere/Gargoyle starter which I really wasn't happy with, since it totally lacks blood and pool gain and is loaded with cards that cost 2 pool. Fortuanately I managed to trade the following cards: 2x Malgorzata, 2x Antonio d'Erlette, 1x Nikolai the Survivor, 1x Nephandus, 3x Chaundice and 2x Fustuk. So I played a Tremere antitribu"/Gargoyle deck. I removed all the "Razor Bats" and all the other cards, that cost pool from the deck, with the exception of "Depravity" and "Guardian Angel". This resulted in a pretty solid deck. I managed to make 1 GW and 3 VPs, which wasn't enough for the final.
The biggest surprise however was Zsolt Cziraki's deck. He was dealt a Samedi starter. Instead of trying to make it work somehow he decided to ask everybody at the tournament for their Baali cards. The result: a complete Baali Deck! He scored 2 GW 10 VPs and was first seat in the final! I couldn't stay to watch the final, but was told later the he won the final with 1.5 VPs. Congratulations to Zsolt "Colos" Cziraki for this achievement!
