Bruun Summoned [rabbit] and banished it to get 2 copies of [saurus], which let him Summon [laggia]. “16…. 16” Bruun was calculating if he had game. Bruun played [hole], then followed with [fiendish] on [maestro]. Sluis Chained [mst] on [fiendish] and Bruun Chained Laggia’s effect and then [lance] on his [laggia]!
