@Jaziel, I thought the same thing when I first saw it. They are most likely running it in order to "cut through the meat" of the rest of their deck so once they have the tools they want to go infinite, they can just go infinite and knock out the rest of the draws that'll be medicore other wise. If they know, we need this removal, that cycle, and we're good to go but we have like 10 cards left, this is a way to empty their deck and they can just go infinite faster.
@Kaiser_Choulio, I mean, they have Skulking Geistfor that already. Also, C9 would win by driving their oppponet's life total down through fatigue. Ideally they want to just be alive and keep the board pretty calm until their opponet is fatiguing and they go infinite with the Dead Man's Hand by using it to copy the other copy of itself back into the deck.
