Seems like my good bcs against Karmi turned against us for this last game, in his three attemps to bring a faction into play, Agus rolled 3, 2 and 3 (seriously)

Congrats to the winners and for everyone participating, has been great!

Slops to whoever payed WigyBucks to make Agus roll such miserably as he did! :P

Wow! Dunking every game is pretty incredible.  Would you mind sharing the decklist?  In fact, it'd be great to see as many of the contestant's deck lists as want to share.  :)

Cool tournament! Thanks to Mikko for running it! Hope there will be one next years - or maybe earlier with another prize than a worlds slot.

I played basically with my old faithful dwarf dunk deck http://www.meccg.net/dforum/viewtopic.php?t=1208
(Triple-D, the King of Dunks? suggestions for a good name are welcome  :wink: ) with some modifications - for example one
withdrawn straight in deck vs. heroes. Success with this deck relies heavily on expecting what your opponent has in
store for you and having countermeasures ready, I think. This has meant learning all kinds of little tricks, like moving
leaf brooches to Pallando in case of seized, making good use of your opponents short rests, exhausting with your last
sitting company to discard in the heart of his realm etc., to name a few I've used.
