Anyways, I knew this fight like all others would essentially come down to a popularity contest, and I figured Lan might win, so I wanted to create a plausible way of this happening.

Yeah, and it's influence over chance. Mat probably wouldn't consider it lucky, so the question remains. How does that go together with his luck? (Different causes, or what?)
He's Ta'veren. The Last Battle is coming. Simple.
But that doesn't explain why battle follows Mat even though he tries to avoid it.
Clarification: I have no idea how the Dagger influenced Mat's luck, but I don't think Fain experiences the same thing as Mat.
What Mat considers lucky and what is actually lucky for him are two very different things. There is a vast difference between what you might perceive to be good luck and what really is. Mat needed to be where he was, it was vital to no just the world, but also to his own growth. So despite him hating it in the moment, it was in truth a lucky break, exactly what he needed.

This write-up kinda took something extra; I did a lot of research on WoT sword forms for it.

Mashadar, forget it, Lan is history. Even Jesus Rand will be in trouble against the BEAST FAIN.
Facing the OLD Fain, Lan DESTROYS.
