Warrior Deck Kezza Meha Armageddon, Wellington, New Zealand
Woohoo! My first armageddon (sp?) tournament!!! ...Sadly my
first armageddon altogether...
But never mind. The morning started with me only sleeping 3
hours after a bender the night before and my mate, Matt,
turning up late to pick me up.
Lateness continued the rest of the morning as we pull into
wellington at 10!!! Short notice for a tournament that
started at 10.30.
After sprinting down Queens wharf I made it by 10 past.
I sat down, took a breather, took a drink off the drink
girls, and waited.
1st Round, Kieran (warriors) vs Luke (zombies)
Zombies first round? grrrreeeaaat. Luke was a heck of a nice
guy though with the majority of our match time spent talking
about anime and other things yu-gi-oh.
I was releaved though when I found his deck was a slightly
modified Zombie structure deck.
It was a nice match easing me into tournament mode.
1st round went to me with a good ole fashioned warrior
swarm, and 5000 life points to spare. Bottomless trap holes
ruled his despairs.
2nd round went to me again. I chose this round to try out
the currently untested chaos build of my deck. BLS blitzed
him 6300 left to me.
2nd Round, Kieran (warriors) vs Steven (beatdown/chaos)
O.k now this is the type of deck I'm used to versing.
I went into this match feeling very over confident. I got a
serious wake up though when i got smoked with him sitting
pretty on about 7000. Kycoo ruled Gigantes which were piling
up in my hand.
Next game you blinked and you missed. His second turn he had
a Maha Vailo on the field equipped with axe (3050 atk). I
snatched his Maha (3550 atk) summoned Mataza, called back
Command Knight. 1700 x2 (3400 for those to lazy to think lol)
+ 3550 + 1600 = game.
Now this game was close. He had a field of trap cards (4)
and 7700 life points. I was on 1400 lp after he creatured
swapped his Sasuke 1 for my zombyra.
I snatched back my zombyra and tributed for jinzo, atk
directly. He sets a monster. I draw Exiled force! Tribute
and atk directly.
He sets another monster and ends. Now my hand had built up 3
warrior returning alive's because his kycoo and previously
removed all my monster.
and if you want to know how I came back for a win- reread
the last two lines 3 times.
3rd Round, Kieran (warriors) vs Jacob (Monster effect
Now his deck was cool. Spear dragons, Amazoness swordswomans
and reflect bounder...nasty.
The first round I don't really remember and my notes are
2nd round I couldn't muster a decent defence and I got
pummeled by Spear Dragons.
3rd round though was a great match. Double Mataza's and
Command Knight. He was top decking and drew Amazoness
Swordswoman, which he atked a Mataza, forgetting that
command knight boosted him. I asked him if he'd like to take
it back but he didn't.
4th Round, Kieran (warriors) vs Saiva (Chaos/Relinquished)
If I won this I would of been happy if I lossed the rest of
my matches because I would of walked away with winning over
half of my preliminary matches.
Not too much to say here apart from big up's to Gearfried
the Iron Knight and blast with chain! He summons BLS and I
ask if he'd like to remove a Gearfried he said no so I
equipped my Geafried with blast destroying BLS.
Relinquished had me caught of guard though because most tend
to run Thousands Eyes over this guy.
Second match I was drawing NO monster except sangan and what
ever I got out with him. I did premature back Sangan with a
face down Blast.
He stormed, I chained with blast on sangan destroying his
monster and leaving him open. Mataza (from sangan) did the
rest next turn.
5th round, Kieran (warriors) vs Tzar (Zombies)
Now here was an interesting match, but not because of more
****ing zombies. (If you can't tell Zombies and Gravekeepers
are my two hated decks).
This guy was actually related to me. Apprantly his mom's
last name and my last name are the same so after about five
minutes of back tracking turns out our great grandfathers
are the same and our grandfathers are brothers. RANDOM.
After a win to him first round and win to me second round (
which was lengthy thanks to us both stalling, Him with
Patrician, spirit reaper, pyramid turtle and soul absorbing
bone tower and me with two captains) this was gonna be good.
His turn, plays call of the mummy, specials a despair and
summons regenerating mummy. After both of us over extending
to try and gain an early lead by second turn we're both down
to 2 cards in hand and him with Despair still and
Regenerating still. I had BLS in the opening hand but only a
blade knight in the graveyard.
Lp was low with options running out for me. What do I draw
but Mataza! Mataza took one for the team by suiciding into
Regenerating. MP 2 I summon BLS and remove
Despair set call and end. He used call of the mummy to bring
out Ryu Kokki atking my BLS with both dying. He set pyramid
turtle and ended. I called back BLS removed Pyramid turtle
and managed to beat him down from there.
I didn't know how much time was left so I sent Mike down
stairs to fetch pizza because I was hungers. I managed to
munch down half a pizza before my next match started.
6th round, Kieran (warriors) vs Joseph (beatdown?)
I really wasn't too sure about this guys deck because I only
really saw 4 monsters I think. Beserk, spirit reaper,
Airknight and Night Assailant.
1 st round involved him trying to atk me with Berserks only
to run into Gearfried's and blasts.
2nd round was the shizzle. Opening moves, he sets 1 monster
and a trap and ends.
I draw and play nobleman of crossout, which he magic
jammered. I play the second nobleman of crossout in my hand,
wiping out his night assailants.
After this should of been easy for me but he came back with
berserks and stalling with spirit reapers.
Towards the end I had 1 mataza in my hand and no field. He
had 2 cards and he played premature burial and sacked for
Airknight. I was pretty fucked with both of us on less than
2000. Now for those of you that don't belive in the heart of
the cards skip to the next match but for those of you that
I put my hand on my deck ready to draw thinking Goblin
Attack Force would be nice here, then as I lifted the card a
thought flashed in my mind "You side decked those out...".
Shit was all the came into my mind as a turned my card to
look at it to reveal... SNATCH STEAL! Thiefing his Airknight
I attacked for game. Joseph could hardly believe it with the
comment of "That was bullshit" coming from him. I was to
releaved to make any comment.
7th round, Kieran (warriors) vs Michael (Phoenix/Chaos)
Now me and this guy were going into this match with 6-0
scores. Me and this guy had been talking earlier and the
only time I had seen him play was glancing over at his match
while I was playing Joseph.
From now on I have lp scores for most of my games.
The first match was a complete warrior swarm for me with the
Me 8000 - 9000 from a snatch.
And Michael 8000 - 4500 - 0
Next match was weird though. His opening he sets a monster
and 2 traps. I opened with heavy storm destroying Mirror
force and...POT OF GREED???
I summon Exiled force and atked... Morphing Jar.
Hand's both replenished, I set Bottomless Trap Hole and end.
From there on Blade Knights ripped through his defences. But
from his bad hand he still managed to take me down a fair
Me 8000 - 6400 - 2800 - 2600
Michael 8000 - 6400 - 5900 - 5100 - 4900 - 4600 - 3600 -
2200 - 400 - 0
Now because of his bad hands I offered a third round with
Me 8000 - 6600 - 6500 - 5500 - 1200 - 400 - 0
Michael 8000 - 7000 - 6000
Now I knew this was gonna come back and bite me...and it
This was where my notes got crappy as I focused more on
being in the finals! The only one from Palmerston North,
Quarter Finals, Kieran (warriors) vs ??? (Sorry dude)
Now this match was hazy, apart from I remember him wondering
why Mystic Swordsman Level 2 negated Apprentice Magicians
Semi Finals, Kieran (warriors) vs Jung of Team Game Player
Now this guy had been hounding me for my spare Breaker all
day and I had no idea how he'd been going till the names of
the finalist had been read out.
Now this had to be my favourite match of the day. It was so
close with us both countering everything the other did in
the first round untill I gained a bit of advantage and took
the first round.
Me 8000 - 6200 - 5200 - 3700 - 3100 - 2300
Jung 8000 - 7000 - 5200 - 3400 - 3000 - 2600 - 2200
In the first round though I made the mistake of playing
graceful charity straight into the grave yard. Which I
Between games we both hit the side deck. Which was funny
because I went to chaos warriors and he went to to counter
my other warriors.
it came down to the wire and I still don't think I should of
won this match but we both forgot about his Vampire Lord
getting mirror forced.
Which left the field open for my Mataza's and Command Knight
doing the damage needed to finish him.
Me 8000 - 7900 - 7200 - 6500 - 5700
Jung 8000 - 7900 - 7800 - 7000 - 6300 - 4300 - 3000 - 1400 -
After the match to make up for my mistake earlier I gave him
my spare Breaker, the only card that he came to Armageddon
Whoop to me! The finals!
First tournament, Warriors, Extremely lucky in some games...
Sounds rather Joey'ish to me.
Finals, Kieran (warriors) vs MICHAEL (PHOENIX/CHAOS)
Now here is where I was worried. I bet him in the
preliminarys because he had crappy hands, the third round
1st game, whats to say? I got screwed.
Me 8000 - 6000 - Something - 0
Michael 8000 - 7000'ish
2nd game was close, so very close. Both of us were low on
life. Me on 1400, him on 1800 and me with a face down
ceasefire, but only sangan and mataza on the field.
He played lightning vortex which i chained with ceasefire.
Him on 800. From there he managed to get Jinzo. I snatched
his Jinzo and atked for game only to run into scapegoats. He
was gaining life quickly and I was hacking my way through
sheep. He managed to get Phoenix on the field suiciding into
Jinzo. Next turn he brought it back and start laying into my
monsters. Now i managed to smashing ground the bird. Now
this is were I stuffed up. I had Torrential and BTH
facedown. No monsters. He had 1 f/d Apprentice, 3 Sheep and
a space for the bird to occupy. He specialled back Phoenix
and I play BTH. It wasn't till afterwards that I found out
that I could of played both TT and BTH wiping out his
monsters and removing Phoenix. He procceeded to waste me
from there on.
Me 8000 - 5600 - 3200 - 1400 - 0
Michael 8000 - 7000 - 1800 - 800 - 1800 - 2800 - 2000 - 3000
All in all I was extremely pleased with how well the
Warriors managed to pull me through this tournament.
Now time for Prop's 'n' Slop's.
