 +**newsgroup tournament report:**
 +<​file>​
 +Date of event: Saturday June 19th, 2010 
 +Location of event: Espoo, Finland ​
 +# of players: 16 
 +Winning Player: Aleksi Nuora (VEKN 3070125) ​
 +Winning Clan: True Brujah ​
 +Winning Faction: Bahari ​
 +Key Minion: Nehemiah ​
 +</​file>​
 +
 +We played the Battle Lines storyline over here last Saturday, and got 
 +a very decent attendance (16) taking into account that it's a summer ​
 +weekend. ​
 +
 +The win went to Aleksi Nuora with his (Bahari) True Brujah deck. It'​s ​
 +a slow builder of a deck, but when it gets going it's very very 
 +dangerous. It also has some fun tech (the Temptation angle, with 
 +Abactor for maximized nasty). ​
 +
 +All in all, I saw a lot of very different decks. Multiple Baali of 
 +course (though nobody was quite crazy enough to bring a Loyalist Baali 
 +deck :) but only two Kiasyd, which has a bit of a surprise for me. My 
 +own (Nagaraja) deck packed a copy of Mistrust but I didn't draw it 
 +once over 3 games -- plain bad luck there. It would have been useful. ​
 +The final round consisted of (in seating order): ​
 +
 +  * Matias Frosterus (Bahari Gargoyle), final total 2 GW, 6.5 VP 
 +  * Otso Turunen (Bahari Baali), final total 1 GW, 6.5 VP 
 +  * Antero Hakala (Loyalist Daughters), final total 1 GW, 4 VP 
 +  * Aleksi Nuora (Bahari True Brujah), final total 2 GW, 8.5 VP 
 +  * Marko Saari (Bahari Baali), final total 2 GW, 7 VP 
 +
 +The finals were actually pretty boring and resulted in a timeout... ​
 +almost everyone had so much bloat that nothing much seemed to happen. ​
 +The two Baali decks were both Great Beast -based, so they were stuck 
 +in contest hell and ended up being a lot less powerful than they 
 +otherwise would have been. 
 +
 +The full clan breakdown for the day was: 
 +
 +<​file>​
 +4 x Baali (Bahari) ​
 +3 x Gargoyle (Bahari) ​
 +2 x Daughters (Loyalist) ​
 +2 x Kiasyd (Bahari) ​
 +2 x Nagaraja (one Bahari, one Loyalist) ​
 +2 x Salubri (one Bahari, one Loyalist) ​
 +1 x True Brujah (Bahari) ​
 +</​file>​
 +
 +Bahari was obvious a *lot* more popular, for obvious reasons. ​
 +It was a fun tournament, especially because ignoring the grouping ​
 +rules and some clan disabilities let you build decks you never could 
 +try out normally. It was also very very unbalanced, the Bahari faction ​
 +card was miles beyond the Loyalist one in power, and letting Baali 
 +ignore their untap cost let them do nasty things. Still, a fun time 
 +was had. 
 +
 +Aleksi'​s winning deck: 
 +
 +<​file>​
 +Description : 
 +Fairly straightforward. Control Villeined minions with Rants and 
 +Tempts, oust when the opportunity presents itself. The deck is based 
 +on the idea that if a stealth vote/bleed deck can cycle cards at a 
 +nearly arbitrary rate it will win.
