When I first came to the store, I had a lot of Pharaoh's Servant packed into my deck. I didn't want to go through the hassle of changing my deck around to meet the card restrictions, but with the help of the judge, Taylor *God bless this guy*, he made me this deck. At first, I looked at some of these cards and I thought I was done for (eg. Soul Exchange, "You take your opponent's fat for your fat.", Giant Trunade "It's better than Heavy Storm, then you use this card: Card Destruction...", and Card Destruction.) Argh. It really confused me, but to my surprise, the formula worked!
Round 1 - Bye
Ha! I got a bye!
Round 2: Justin (?) - I'm not sure exactly what his deck was about.
1st Duel: I felt really sorry dueling this guy because he had to change his deck because he also had Pharaoh's Servant and just threw a lot of cards into his deck... like 70... I tried to give him a chance to come back, but I wanted to stop his suffering. He didn't inflict any damage to my Life Points
2nd Duel: Much like the first duel. He didn't have any good cards, and I just annihilated his defenses.
Summary: I really wish this guy didn't have to go through the painful death I served him... -_-
Round 3: Joseph - I think he played a beatdown deck...
1st Duel: Let me just say, this duel was really close. It basically came down to me playing Snatch Steal on his monster and attacking him everything that I had.
2nd Duel: This duel was neck-and-neck for a while. He didn't
have any Monster Cards in his hand, but he stopped my forces with various Trap
Cards. There were many turns where neither of us did much. The duel ended again
with me playing Snatch Steal, Monster Reborn, and my feeble Witch of the
Round 4: Mike - Definitely beatdown, and his stupid Mechanical Chaser!
1st Duel: He didn't draw any monsters! I just slapped him around a few turns until I was able to successfully take all of his Life Points.
2nd Duel: I'm still amazed that he wasn't able to pull anything good. Normally this guy is a beast. I won in two turns with a Snatch Steal, Monster Reborn, bringing two Summoned Skulls to my side of the field. Add an Axe of Despair, and ha! You're gone buddy!
Round 5: Silvano (My rival!) - Beatdown and Denial Deck
1st Duel: Silvano really pissed me off by beating a fellow Asian on his previous duel. AZN PRIDE man!!! Anyways, I took Silvano out with Giant Trunade, Card Destruction... Ha! He pulled nothing but Cyber Jar, and so did I. We both used their effects after we played them down... We had HUGE hands at the time. About to die, I pulled Raigeki and attacked him directly.
2nd Duel: Soul Exchange, Summoned Skull, wait, Giant Trunade, Raigeki, set a Magic Card, Card Destruction, Monster Reborn (I have no cards in hand at the time!), game.
Round 6: ??? - ??? Deck
1st Duel: I don't even want to start on this guy! For the final round I deserve a challenge! But no! This guy somehow managed to climb through the ranks will a totally crappy deck. Game, set, match.
2nd Duel: Once again this was really boring... actually more annoying! He bulled a lot of Man-Eater Bugs and such. Good thing he learned how to defend.... (duh!). Anyways, on the Draw Phase for the last turn my opponent had 4 set monsters. I was like, "Heart of the Cards: Raigeki!" Do I need to say more?! I pulled Raigeki and Silvano punched me because of the "fluke"... r-i-g-h-t Silvano...
- AZN PRIDE
- Having some weak opponents and a bye
- Heart of the Cards
- Listening to Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! music non-stop before the tournament
- Upper Deck for being so freaking lazy and not making Pharaoh's Servant legal
- The guy who wouldn't trade me the Ritual of Black Magic and Magician of Black Chaos (and other common Japanese cards) for 2 Exodia pieces, 1 Secret Rare, 2 Ultra Rares, and 2 Super Rares.
- Huy (one of my friends) not coming to support me in the tournament
