Number of Participants:20-30

Okay, Iím missing a lot of key cards (Raigekis, Swords of Revealing Light, etc.) but, basically this deck depends on speed, and has the two Summoned Skulls for backup power.

 

Anyways, the rules are

-No Japanese allowed

-Official rules, and restrictions

 

So I walk in and sign up, but the tournament judge says Iím too late, and that all slots are closed. I start to grumble since the tournament starts in 30 minutes. Oh well, next time, so I decide to stay, and trade and duel.

 

So I walk up start talking to some guy named Kevin, and we decide to duelÖ

 

Match 1

Duel One

He runs a basic beatdown with some cards to backup such as Fairy Meteor Crush, and the like, he also tends to side deck in burner cards.

Dark Winged (Me): 8000-7000-5900

Kevin:8000-6000-4200-600-0

I really donít remember much, but I kept score and just remember that I hit him with Elves, And Harpies Brother, and whenever he summoned monsters, they either hit Man Eater Bug, Trap Hole, Wall, of died with Fissure. The only damage I took was when he Fairy Meteor Crushed my Man-Eater with Battle Ox.

 

Duel Two

Dark Winged:8000-4000-3000

Kevin:8000-3600-1800-800-0

Now this duel I took a lot of self-damage, by Jirai, and Elves.

At one point I had two Jirais on the field, and I Fissured his only monsters, a Dark Fire Soldier.  I won the first flip, but lost the second. Also I remembered Mystic Space Typhooning his Mirror Force, and Magic Jammered his Raigeki.

 

Overall: Win, Score 2-0

 

Well, in between duels I talked with some kid, and traded him for Swords of Revealing Light. Wahey!! Anyways, I added Sorl to my deck, and walked up to Trevor, we sat down, and dueled.

 

Match 2

Duel One

Trevor runs a Harpies Lady/Air beatdown; he loves to power his air monsters, with

Bladefly, Rising Air Current, and Nuzzler

Dark Winged:8000-7000-6000-

Trevor:8000-6000-4000-

This duel was pretty quick, he didnít draw any good cards, or monsters, but when he did they were all removed, also I kept attacking with my Elves, and

Finished him off with Gumo.

 

Duel Two

Dark Winged:8000-6050-5050

Trevor:8000-7000-6000-2400-0

Bleh, thid duel was the exact opposite of last game, so all I could do was stall with Walls, at one point he hit me with Harpies Lady Sisters.

Then I was able to hit him with my 1800 attackers, and Elves.

 

Overall:Win, Score 2-0

 

Well we talked, traded, and went our separate ways, then I dueled Tristan, whose

every move, was told to do by Will, another great duelist, who doesnít have all the cards, such as me.

 

Match 3

Duel One

Tristan runs an stall/burner, with cards such as Giant Soldier, which get annoying, when you smack into them.
Dark Winged:8000-6000

Tristan:8000-4000-1800-800-

Well, one again I did all my damage to myself, with Elves of course.

I cleared the field and hit with two Elves, and Gumo, but it got annoying when I kept running into Wall, and Mystic Elf.

 

Duel Two

Dark Winged:8000-4000

Tristan:8000-7000-6000-4000-0

Well, I remember I kept hitting him with walls, and eventually I was able to send out my stronger hitters. I thought remember I lost a Jirai Flip, and he ended up blocking my attack with Waboku.

 

Well, after I finished him off, he sorta started to get mad, and kept asking me for a rematch, and if he won he would get to keep Swords,

Now I would have dueled him if he kept his cool, and he started cussing at me

Until, well, I walked into one of the tournament judges accidently.

He ended up getting kicked out ^^í

 

Overall:Win, Score 2-0

 

Well, tired from dueling I decided to walk up to David, who was starting to gather

Up quite a crowd, because he had anihilated all his oppoents,

And had won last weeks tournament (or so I heard)

 

So, unsure, since he had a bye, I challenged him to a duel.

 

Match Four

David runs an beatdown, this guy has everything, Axes, Chasers, Reigeki.

Duel One

Dark Winged:8000-7000-6000-2400-600-0

David:8000-6000-4000-2000-1000

Okay this was an exctiting duel, we kept sending monsters against each other, with Fissures, and Trap Holes destroying each other

Waboku saved me many times. I was able to hit him with Elves a couple of times,

Then at one point when I had a Wall, I could have won by using Change fo Heart,

But he countered with Solemn Judgement. Dang, but still I got him with Wall

Then next turn he uses Raigeki, then used Mst on my face

Down Mirror Force, and flipped a Wall for the win

 

Duel Two

Dark Winged:8000-7000-6000

David-8000-4000-1800-0

This time I drew the perfect cards, I was able to clear his field and Heavy Stormed his field which has Waboku, and Mirror Force, I used Mst

on a face down Enchated Javelin, I also won my Jiraia flips, and negated his Raigeki,

which would have won the duel, so then I play Change fo heart,

which is a Man-Eater,so I tribute for Skull and win.

 

Duel Three

Dark Winged:8000-4000-2200-400-100

David:8000-5800-4000-400-0

One of my greates duels of all time, our monsters were even and kepyt smacking and destroying each other.

My best move was when I Mst his Mirror Force

He attacks my face down Magician of Faith, get back Mst, my turn,

get back Mst, and hit a face down Waboku which would have stopped his life from reaching 0

 

Overall:Win, Score 2-0

 

Well, we cingratulated each other, shook other peoples hands, talked to David and he went to his next duel, which I watched, it turned out this was the finals, and he was playing Takahasi, who runs an

Exodia deck. David ended up winning the first duel, lost second,

Then won the third by 300 life.

 

Well, my mom came, and told me it was 7:00, meaning I had to go.

Well I said my byes, traded last, and left.

 

Well, I had a great tourney experience, even thought I wasnít in.

 

I did get some good cards such as Swords, and Giant Trunade, which Im gonna trade for another Storm, hopefully

 

Well, anyways, heres my revised deck, enjoy
