Obviously, the point of the deck is fast anger.
     In the first round, I played my friend's Black style Frieza deck. The battle went as planned, and I won with a quick jump to level 4. Nothing really exciting happened.
      In the second round, I played a Piccolo Orange Style deck. Everything was going fine. I was at level 3 with 1 anger, and all my Dragon Balls in play, when he hit me with Awful Abrasions. With all my Dragon Balls in play, and the 2 Focusing is Everything and Don't You Just Hate That near the bottom of my deck, I soon had the rest of my deck drained.
     In the third round, I fought a Blue style Spice deck. Needless to say, I couldn't raise enough anger to gain any levels, my Dragon Balls were removed with Kami Fades, and he was able to block most of my attacks. He soon whittled me down to nothing.
     In the final round, I fought a Red style Vegeta deck. Near the end, I thought I was going to lose. It was the beginning of his turn, andwe were both at level 3 with 3 anger. He drew his cards, and got all Non-Combat cards that didn't help with his anger. He passed, so I drew my cards, declared combat, and removed Red Face Upheaval from the top of my dicard pile to win the game via a Most Powerful Personality Victory.
    So, in the end, I had an even 2-2 record, with one loss comong down to pure luck, while the other was specifically tuned to take down an anger deck. This was my first tourney, so I'm glad I did as well as I did.
