Congratulations to Brian for winning the European VtES Championship 2010. He's the first player to win both the North American and the European Championship!

The final seating was Erol --> Brian --> Medhi --> Jesper --> Otto. The game ended about 10 minutes before the time limit.

Two quotes from the finals:
  • Otto (a bit angry about prolonged talks about how Parity Shifts and stuff must be done): "You're talking for more than 10 freaking minutes, and nothing is happening."
  • Erol (when asked if he transfers himself out) : "No, self-ousting is gay!"

Do you know when we'll see decklists? I'd really like to see the Akunanse list, in particular.

I knew Brian would do well.
He was kind of "on fire" when we met him just before the finals :)

Playing abombwe and winning the biggest event with it will, i hope, inspire players around the world to try new decks, strategies and disciplines :)

thank you for that Brian, and congratulations :)

Hey, Brian here. Just wanted to say the deck is called "17 wakes" and that the decklist is missing a Well-Marked (I was using a total of 2). The deck size is 83.

And thank you, Reyda, for all your help and support during the last week!

Akunanse Bleed/Combat - I can see the combat, but where is the bleed? 7 Deep songs is not much ousting power.

Brian told me, that he uses the Deep Song mostly for bleeding, not so often for the rush action. In addition: Amavi has +1 bleed, Fakir al Sidi has +1 bleed, and the Reliquary gives +1 bleed as well. And he can tap out a lot, because of the 17 "wakes".

But I agree, it's not a powerbleed deck. ;)
