The first saturday of the month is still the signal of a T1 tournament at
Cartes-Timbres-Monnaies Ste-Foy (CTM) in Quebec City.
I leave for Quebec at 7:00 with P-O and Mig-Hell's (it seems Ti-Bonhomme
can't come this time). We arrive at 9:00.
The tourney starts much later (10:30) as about 15 players must be
registered and tables must be added.

As usual, this is your no-sideboard, one game only format and at the end top 16
make the finals.

Round 1 - Mathieu Roberge playing Keeper 
Mathieu is the current Quebec regional champion but he admits that he rarely
plays type 1. He does have the P9 though ;-)
The game starts well for me as i wasteland 2 duals and my opponent is stuck
with few mana sources.
I play Sacred Mesa and Aura of Silence but they're countered/disenchanted.
A few turn later, he taps out to play Morphling. On my turn I try to Sword it
but Mathieu has a force of Will. I then play Replenish. :-)
My opponent eventually gets out a 2nd Morphling but my Serra's Sanctum is a bit
too powerful and the poor guy has to Wrath of God in order to survive (killing
his 2 Morphlings !). I win a few turns later.
1-0-0

Round 2 - Some dude playing a P9-filled pile (sorry!) 
I am not really able to know what kind of deck my opponent is playing, as it
contains great cards (P9, Mind Twist, other restricted stuff) AND some
not-so-hot stuff (Royal Assassin, Citanul Centaurs, Solkanar !??!).
I play and early Cap and the poor guy sees some good cards go away.
Unfortunately for him, i have 2 Argivian Finds in hand :-) 2 other caps later,
I play Sacred Mesa. His Maze of Ith isn't that great.
2-0-0

Round 3 - Mig-Hell's playing P9 Keeper
Mig-Hell's has a good deck but i'm expecting a draw as our last game took
almost 2 hours to complete.
Actually, i'm able to play most of my cards (read Sacred Mesa) and kill
him even if he has Morphling on the table...
3-0-0

Round 4 - An Old man playing a P9 R/U big beast deck
That man must be 50 years-old. He does have the P9 though so i am careful.
I wasteland some duals and i play an early Sacred Mesa. I start the production
and he plays a Covetous Dragon and a Morphling. Too bad for him: i have too
many tokens.
4-0-0

Round 5 - Benoit Beaubien playing Stasis
Benoit is the winner of the last "Archmage" tournament in Rimouski (he actually
defeated Le_Lepreux in the final). His deck didn't change at all so I'm
expecting the worse.
The game starts and he quickly get the advantage. But the game is very long and
at some point we have to hurry as the 20min limit is near. He plays Timetwister
but forgets to use his Tormod's Crypt !! I reshuffle all my stuff :-)
In a last effort to kill me, he uses the Mind Over Matter/Library of Alexandria
combo to cycle through his deck but is unable to deck me with a Stroke. The
juge comes to say that we have one turn left. He has only 5 cards left in his
library and i have a Jester's Cap in hand, but i realize i don't have enough
mana to do it twice. I end up destroying his MoMa and the game ends in a
draw... (I would've won if the game continued)
4-0-1

Round 6 - Psycho-Pat playing Slivers
Psycho-Pat is an old friend from college. The deck he plays lacks some power.
I play an early Moat but he disenchants it. Argivian find allows me to take it
back :-) He's unable to destroy it and by the time he gets a Winged Sliver,
I'm already attacking with 7 Pegasi a turn. 
5-0-1

Round 7 - Nicolas playing B/R/W
The deck is a black weenie containing Pox, burn and some disenchants.
A first turn Ivory Tower helps me A LOT as i survive long enough to play
important spells. The game was exciting as i he had me down to 1 life.
I eventually won, but at some point i had to play Planar Birth to gain 10 life.
6-0-1

Round 8 - Some guy playing Burn
I mulligan and keep a hand containing a Swords. He burns me before I can find
any life gainer :-(
6-1-1

Despite the loss, i make top 16 !
My friends P-O and Mig-Hell's make top 16 too :-)

Top 16 - Guillaume Soucy playing Three Deuce
Guillaume is the one who beat me last tourney, with the same deck :-(
Here's my chance to avenge my death !!! 
First game, he overruns me with Rancored creatures and Scrolls. Second game I
side in 7 cards :-) I win the 2 last games thanks to my sideboard and to
Cursed Totem which hit the table in both games.

Top 8 - Sébastien Giguere playing Winter Orb
I'm quite impressed with this deck as it did'nt lose a single game that day.
It uses Tangle Wires, Icy Manipulators, Mishra's Helix and Artifacts/Birds
to achieve an Orb lock.

I fall in the lock and try to survive, waiting to see what card he'll use to
kill me. 

The juge then arrives to tell us that time is running out so this will be a
1 out of 1 instead of 2 out of 3. WHAT?!?! It seems we don't have any other
option :-( My opponent plays Mungha Wurm and kills me 3 turns later, thanks to
a Time Walk. :-(

I'm out. 
I'm quite deceived by the "time" decision. P-O is angry. He loses to Giguere's
deck too. P-O is furious.
The final puts Giguere's deck vs Trix (!).
Giguere wins ! Congrats for the win with the unusual deck.

So this has been a very good tournament for Deck Parfait and I think I could
have won the match vs Giguere with my sideboard (Abolish). 

Oh... by the way Le_Lepreux didn't make Top 16 (5-3-0) ;-P

Here's what i played :

About the deck :
I think having 3 Sacred Mesa really speeded up the deck, as well as strenghten
it vs Counters. Replenish is also very good. I never missed the 4th Land Tax.
