This is my 2nd Tournament that I have competed. I went with my friend Jake who plays a Warrior deck. My dad drove us there at 11:00 am. I needed a Jinzo for my deck so I checked out the singles in the shop. They had one priced at 30 dollars. Fornately, the storeowner sold it to me for 23 dollars! I jumped at the opportunity and gave her the money for Jinzo. I did a few trades, one was trading a Legendary Fisherman, Ring of Destruction (I had two), and a Marie the Fallen One to a kid for the the Head of Exodia. Thanks, all I need nowAfter one hour, the brackets were made and the duels were about to begin.


Round 1: Me V.S. Alex (Weenie Rush)

We greeted each other with handshakes and started the duel. First Match, I played Spear Dragon in attack mode and played MST facedown. He placed a card facedown and a monster in facedown defense mode. I drew Fiber Jar and attacked with my Spear Dragon. He flipped his Gravity Bind trap card up but I chained with MST. He ended his turn with a facedown defense monster. After a few turns, I got down his lifepoints to 3100 after a huge attack by my Jinzo and Summoned Skull after I raigekied his monsters. I specifically won this match.

Second Match, I totally owned him after a few attacks by my Breaker with Gemini Elf. I finished him by a final attack by Kycoo.

Record: 2-0


Round 2: Me V.S. Jack (Beatdown)

He went first by placing a Gemini Elf in attack mode. I played Book of Moon and Nobleman of Crossout to destroy his Gemini Elf then sent a Goblin Attack Force to attack his lifepoints directly. Second duel, I whipped his lifepoints with two Goblin Attack Forces and a Jinzo.

Record: 4-0


The other duelists were still dueling so I decided to take a rest. I met up with Jake who said he made it to the finals with a record of 4-2. I told him my record and he was astonished. When we were about to watch the other duels, I saw this big kid saying that the kid that he was dueling was cheating. The judge found out that he was lying so he disqualified him. Too bad!!


Third round I got paired up with a kid named Matt who’s deck has no theme. (I wonder how he won all those rounds??)


Round 3: Me V.S. Matt (No theme deck)

First duel was as easy as a piece of cake. He was playing outdated cards like Gazelle the King of Mystical Beasts and Skull Red Bird. I whacked his lifepoints with my Summoned Skull and Gemini Elves. Second duel was easy as well, except that he hit me directly with an attack from his Celtic Guardian.

Record: 6-0


I got up to the finals and was watching this kid using a control deck who easily beat another kid down the road with a crappy beatdown deck.


In the finals I got matched with a girl who plays a Amazoness deck.


Round 4(Finals): Me V.S. Daisy (Amazoness deck)

First match she played Amazoness Tiger in attack mode and a card facedown. I countered her Amazon tiger with my Luster Dragon in attack mode. A few turns later, she had 3400 lp and a Amazoness Swordsman with me only having Jinzo. She drew her card and said that she forfeit the game because her mom is telling her to leave for an appointment. So I guess I won that round pretty easily.


Round 5(Finals): Me V.S. Jason (Control Deck)

It looks like I’ll be facing the kid who owns the control deck that I saw earlier. He goes first and places a card facedown in defense mode. I placed a card facedown and play a Spear Dragon face up and attack. It looks like his facedown card was Mystic Tomato. So he plays Sinister Serpant in defense mode. I played change of heart on his SS and sacrifice it for Jinzo. After some attacks to his lifepoints, I won the first match. Second was very easy. I guess he got a bad hand and in the end, he forfeited.


So it means I won this tournament. My friend Jake got second in the tourney.The rare cards that I got in the box was two Ring of Destruction, Great Dezard, Helpoemer, Necrovalley and a few crappy rares. I did some last trading and duels and left.





I guess I don’t have any slops
