I believe Caroline Hyll was the last swede in the draft finals.

Seatings were:
Hugh -> Caroline -> Michael -> Marko -> Pascal.

Pretty early in the game (on his first action), Michael played a Spell of Life. I quickly played mine and got 3 Mummies (3-7-8 caps) in play.
Michael played 2 other Spells of Life, contesting my Ogwon mummy. However, due to heavy pressure from Caroline, he had to yield.
Marko, in the meantime, had brought Leandro out. I was doing almost nothing against Hugh, who had several minions out. My Pentweret, though was hardly blockable by Hugh and his swarming things.
In the end, Hugh ousted Caroline. Michael managed to get Hugh in a bad shape, but not enough to survive Hugh's bleeds. Marko had seen his Leandro rushed by me.
I performed a few neat moves - having my 3-cap Assamite turned into a mummy rush, die, ressuscitated via Eternal mask to play Haqim's Law: Leadership.
Finally, Hugh had only one vampire out, but with so much blood my mummies couldn't take him down. Hugh made a mistake and diablerized Leandro (he didn't want Marko to have two vampires out, both with obe and pre). so, on my turn, I played an Eternal Mask on Leandro, and the turn after was 1 card away from ousting Hugh and leaving Marko on 1 pool with 1 guy against my 10+ pool, 2 mummies, and 2 bleeders.
Sadly, Hugh had that Blood Awakening, caught Abdelsobek's Reckless Agitation :(, and bleed Marko out.

In the end, Spell of Life is way too good in draft to be skipped.
