After six rounds plus quarter- and semifinals, only two players were left to duke it out for the title and trophy of our Vintage main event: Kevin Wagner a local Magic player, who was the only one in todays main event playing Workshops. Matous Trajhan was one of the players, who still believed in the power of Monastery Mentor. And indeed, he reached the finals with his Mentor deck.
Wagner kept his seven and Trajhan started off on the back foot with a mulligan to five. He scryed to the top of his deck and began with Island and passed the turn.
Wagner resolved Sol Ring, Chalice of the Void for one and Sphere of Resistance. With Trajhan only playing lands because of the lock pieces, Wagner resolved Foundry Inspector and Arcbound Ravager. Trajhan managed to resolve Monastery Mentor but it was too late. Wagner attacked with his whole team and Trajhan could only chump block Walking Ballista with his Mentor. He didn’t die to combat damge, but when Wagner sacrificed his artifacts into his Arcbound Ravager and then into Walking Ballista, he was able to shoot the last 5 points of damage via the artifact from Aether Revolt.
Wagner took the lead 1-0
Wagner kept his starting seven, while Trajhan took a mulligan again. This time, he kept six cards and scryed to the bottom of his library.
He started with Mox Pearl and played Time Vault. Wagner had a Mox too and played Phyrexian Revoker naming Time Vault. Trajhan drew and passed the turn.
Wagner attacked with the Revoker and resolved Arcbound Ravager, Chalice of the Void for one. Trajhan had no action and passed the turn again.
Wagner attacked and played Tangle Wire. Trajhan went into the tank and let it resolve. During Wagner’s end step he played Hurkyl's Recall but had no plays during his own turn. Wagner played Mox Sapphire, Chalice of the Void for one, Tangle Wire and Phyrexian Revoker.
With Trajhan locked down under Tangle Wire, Wagner attacked him down to 10 life points.
Wagner resolved Black Lotus, Arcbound Ravager and Walking Ballista and attacked Trajhan for lethal damage.
Kevin Wagner won the game, the match with 2-0, and the tournament!
