The Final Match was between an old favourite Plant going up against the newcomer Sky Striker.

Duel 1 was quickly over as Shih-Chun did not have sufficient disruption to prevent Calvin from going off with the Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis and Topologic Bomber Dragon combo.

Duel 2 had more back and forth exchanges. Calvin had a slow opening hand and was having difficulties developing his board, especially with his Dandylion taken out by Shih-Chun’s Called by the Grave. Shih-Chun’s early game pressure was eventually stifled by Calvin’s Dark Armed Dragon, and that gave Calvin enough time to amass enough resources to go for his combo.

The game was decisively over when Calvin’s Glow-Up Bulb milled Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis from the top of the deck, saving Calvin the trouble of going into Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion.
