[b]Game One[/b]
[br]
Minicozzi wins the roll and goes first. He activates [sb cres] and forces Mirto to choose between [sbfate], [sb master] and [sb tower], not a decision to be made lightly as it could give Minicozzi all the advantage. Mirto cracks and gives Minicozzi a [sb tower]! He plays a [sb secrets] and gets [sb master] to his hand. He Normal Summons [temp] and Special Summons the magnificent [sb world]. Mirto discards [maxx] as a fickle attempt to bring it all back. [sb world] one-ups Mirto again, and brings two cards to Minicozzi’s hand. [tidal] leaves Minicozzi’s hand with a [sbmag] and brings a [stoic] to the Graveyard with them. Two [fd] [sts] are set and, future turns set up, Minicozzi finishes his turn.

He grabs a [sbfate] and activates a [sb power] on his [sb world]. He plays [sbfate] and destroys Mirto’s [fd] [ff tensen]. Minicozzi is playing so many books he could open a library, and continues by playing [sb eternity] and returns [sb secrets] to his hand. Hoping for a repeat performance [temp] enters the field but is stopped by a quick [vane]! The Librarian settles for destroying Mirto’s [fd] [maxx], gets [sb life] to his hand, sets three [fd] [sts] and shelves his books for the turn.
[br]

[ced] tries to see him off, but isn’t so compulsory when [sb wisdom] comes into play. The attack goes through and Minicozzi brings [sb secrets] and [sb tower] to hand! He activates [sb secrets] and brings [sbmag] to hand. He activates his [sb tower] and finishes there.
[br]
[ff bear] lashes back for his fallen brother! Mirto uses his effect and [chain whirl] was later activated to destroy the entirety of Minicozzi’s [fd] [sts]!
[br]

Mirto plays another [pod] and gets a [mind crush] to his hand. His [ff bear] makes another appearance! Mirto swings in with his [ff bear] but is stopped by a [break]! No [lance] to protect him, [ff bear] leaves the field. He sets one [fd] [sts] and he rolls his hand to signify his turn has ended.
[br]
Minicozzi spends a long time looking through his cards and finally decides to discard his two [tidal]s to get a [stoic]. [stoic] in turn brings a [sb justice] who is [mind crush]ed away from Minicozzi before he has a chance to even lock eyes with her!
[br]
Mirto loves his [pod]s, and another one brings [ced] to his hand. [ff bear] jumps out from Mirto’s hand and attacks directly, bringing out [ff tensen] who again in turn brings [wolfbark] to hand. Whether he feels like giving Minicozzi a chance is unclear and he simply ends his turn there.

He activated [ff tensu] and brings his [ff dragon] into play. He attacks and [lance] saves him from the humiliation that would have followed a [pwwb]!
