Junior Super Series
Jeff Sluzinski (Necro) vs Stephen McArthur (Necro)
Virtually identical decks and sideboards
will mean this matchup is basically a coin flip. A player to cast his
Necropotence early has a much better chance to win. A player to draw
more Duresses and Persecutes increases his own chances. McArthur has
slightly more sideboard cards against his opponent - a fourth Corrupt
and four Rain of Tears (as opposed to three in Sluzinski's sideboard).
This might make a little bit of a difference and since we have to guess
here, it makes McArthur a favorite.
Predicted result: McArthur 3 - Sluzinski
Aaron Hiemstra (Sligh) vs Mark Landers (Hatred)
Direct damage, Fireslingers and
Cursed Scrolls do not bode well for a deck that deals a lot of damage
to itself via cards such as Hatred, Carnophage and Sarcomancy. Sligh
is the worst possible matchup for this deck and so Hiemstra should cruise
on to an easy victory.
Predicted result: Hiemstra 3 - Landers
