Round 1- Me vs. Some little kid (Beatdown deck?)
Duel 1- This kid's deck was OK, but I beat it with no problem
Duel 2- Same as before
Round 2- Bye
I got to sit around and do nothing ^_^
Meanwhile, Julius got knocked out in the first round to some random guy named Patrick who ran a Warrior deck.
Round 3- Me vs. Max (Control)
Duel 1-Well, this duel was interesting. He used to run an all out beatdown, and now he reverted to a control deck. He however did not run some of the cards that were essencial to control decks such as Mystic Tomato, and he ran Black Tyranno... Although one of the hardest duels of the day, it ended in my favor.
Duel 2- This duel was MUCH closer. We were swapping each other damage. Eventually he was down to 4000 and I was at something around 2000. I had a Beserk Gorilla on the field. We were both top decking. I drew one card, and got what I was looking for. I summoned a 2nd Beserk Gorilla and finished the game.
Round 4- Me vs. Evan (Little kid deck)
Duel 1- I just obliterated him. No offence, but I don't know how he got to the semi finals. I swept and took no damage. He set a card, I destroyed it. In the end I had all my monster zones filled with beatsticks and he had nothing to stop me ^_^
Duel 2- Same as before, only I didn't win quite as fast.
Round 5- Me vs. Josh (Beatdown)
Duel 1- The 2nd closest match of the day. He kept on summoning beatsticks, and I kept on taking them out with my Beserk Gorillas. I eventually cleared the field for a clean shot.
Duel 2- Wow, this one was close. We just both hit each other with our 1900 beatsticks, he used his Archfiend Soldiers as I used my Geminis and my Slate Warriors. My angry gorillas finally hit the field and started to conquer all of the beatsticks. I won the game.
The tourny was pretty good, except Julius being dueled out the first round.  For my prize I received 6 IOC packs, in which I pulled a Freed the Brave Wanderer, a useless card that does nothing useful in my deck. Well anyway, onto props and slops!
Max being a good challenge
Josh being a good challenge
Getting awesome new sleeves that have a prism on the back.
Julius being dueled out
Having no spare trading cards besides Great Dezard, Fusioh Richie, 2 LOB Man Eater Bugs, and a Gaia the Dragon Champion
Pulling nothing
Beserk Gorilla not being a Super Rare... he makes my deck look cheap with it being non foil =/.
Well, if you have advice just email me at
