Faeria Manta Cup 2 Recap
Recap of FMC2 tournament, which took place on Saturday, December 30th at 2:00 PM CET.
- RaiZo, Egypt - 5 000 gold
- Donpork, Korea - 2500 gold
- S_t_0, Japan - 1000 gold
- Y Tempo by RaiZo
This RaiZo's deck had faced Y Rush 8 times in the tournament and lost only once! Y Rush is considered an unfavorable matchup for Y Tempo, but not when RaiZo "Rush Killer" is piloting it.
- Y Fly Control by Donpork
Is it still Y Flyers if there are no Drakkar Skycaptains? Is it still Y Control if there are no Wind Soldiers? Interesting deck featuring forgotten Soul Pacts and universal Emperors Commands instead. Undefeated in round 2.
- RY Burn by S_t_0
S_t_0 put 2 Oradrim Fanatics and cut Scourgeflame Specter from conventional RY Burn. He switched his opening deck to this extra-mobile deck in the 3rd place match and had not regretted it.
- YRG Path to Face by BoBBiN
A Deck based on 2 rarely seen Oversky cards - Path to Paradise and Rakoan Chieftain. Skc, an established Faeria player, was caught by surprise in round 1 as he was steamrolled by BoBBiN's invention.
