It’s been about over a month since I posted my last tourney report, this tournament, I actually did better since I rebuilt my cards to work with each other. Just like last time, I dragged Johnny with me, got there, bought several DB2 and pulled Command Knight, Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight and Heavy Storm. Other cards aren’t worth mentioning but I later on ended up giving the Command Knight and Heavy to my friend Chris while I traded off the Swift Gaia for another pack. Went upstairs, signed up, found and Chris, Andrew, Danny, Mo dueling along with the usual tourney players. I got myself the last Book of Moon I needed by trading off 2 Archfiend Soldiers and when the 1st round match ups were announced I got ready. Hence, I didn’t use Metamorphosis once this whole tourney, I’ve been trying to use less of the Fusion deck which… doesn’t work out very well doing so. Anyways I was matched up against this kid named Igor and started out:

Round 1: Me vs. Igor (ehhh… Beatdown deck of some sort?)

Igor happened to be of those amateur young kids that don’t have the best cards but build a deck decent enough with high attackers.

Game 1: He went first, played Wave-Motion Cannon which shook me up a little bit, set another card and played some beatstick (It was either a D. D. Survivor or some 1900 attacker) With no M/T removal in my hand, I used cards to try and clear his Monster Field so I could finish him off before the cannon got high enough. He played Cliff the Trap Remover and took out 2 cards on top of my deck then it was my turn, I used Pot of Greed to pick up Heavy Storm and BLS. Destroyed his S/T, brought out BLS and Blade Knight, attacked with them for the win.

Game 2: This one was easier than the first one, I just simply Duo’d his hand, defended with Scapegoats for a moment. Afterwards, I used Tsukuyomi and Nobleman of Crossout one of his monsters and brought out Airknight and Jinzo to beat him down to deplete his life points.

Winner: ME

Round 2: Me vs. Jason (Chaos Control I think)

Game 1: Deadlock duel, I never started off with much of a strong hand, ran into his Spirit Reapers which bought him time, played his Morphing Jar to get some new resources and I lost after that.

Game 2: This one took a while but when I ran into his Reaper, I played Smashing Ground. Late in the game he scanned my graveyard and assumed that one of my two face-down cards was a Ring of Destruction (It was a Mirror Force and Sakuretsu Armor.) He brought out his BLS, and I was able to protect myself in some miraculous way, played my BLS to remove his, He was top decking and soon I won.

Game 3: Don’t recall much, similar to 2nd duel but all I know is I was able to get him around top decking again while I snatched his Tribe, Tsukuyomi’d it and it was able to provide enough direct attacks for the win.

Winner: ME

Round 3: Me vs. Chris (Gravekeepers)

Game 1: So I was matched up against Chris, someone who I usually have trouble against because of his mass swarming and anti-chaos. He asked me not to side deck since it was his first tournament and he hates it when I side deck since I usually win if I do so. Haha. Anywhoo, Scapegoats were lousy defenders against his pumped up Spear Soldiers and Assailants and I soon lost with no good hand to start with nor could do much with his Mobius and Jinzo on the field (Gee those are funky looking Gravekeepers…)

I decided to side deck, putting in 2 Bottomless Trap Holes for the Sakuretsu Armor.

Game 2: Better. The 2 Bottomless helped greatly since I used them to take out 2 of his Spear Soldiers but again, I had trouble and was lacking field presence compared to him. I set a Nobleman of Crossout face down. After a few turns I played Blade Knight to attack his face down monster, forgetting I had a Nobleman of Crossout and crashed into his Gravekeeper’s Spy and he brought out his last Spear Soldier which conquered my wee little Scapegoats.

Winner: Chris

Round 4: Me vs. Mike (Chaos Beatdown)

If you read my last tourney report, Mike happened to be the one with the Warrior Beatdown that used his Zombyra, ironically, to attack my facedown one. Onwards to duel!

Game 1: Started out to attack his facedown monster which was Asura Priest, I knocked around his Scapegoats and life points and seeing how the life points were in my favor, I started to attack him with Sinister Serpent until I won, he couldn’t do anything. =D

Game 2: This next duel, it was a 3 on 3 scapegoat standoff for about 5 turns. Again, life points were in my favor (He was at 750 I believe) and if I was able to draw a monster in time, I could’ve attacked for the win but instead I picked up Dust Tornado and Bottomless Trap Hole. They did jack against his Berserk Gorilla which was already on the field before. And after 2 attacks from that angry fire breathing monkey, I lost.

Game 3: For the third time, life points seemed to be in my favor till I ended up having only Scapegoat and Tsukuyomi in my hand both of which I set and he knew what my monster was. When I was able to bring out a monster for some offense and ready to counter with a Bottomless Trap Hole for any monster, he played Brain Control, took my Blade Knight I believe, offered for Jinzo, played BLS for the win. I lost again.

Winner: Mike

2-2 record, and after munching down on free pizza before dueling Mike previously I went around watching other current duels. It was then time for Top 8, and I made it, matched up against Dexter. Oh did I mention that Dexter is Canada’s Nationals Champion this year? Yikes.

Top 8: Round 5: Me vs. Dexter (The One Deck to Rule Them All)

Game 1: Okay, I used Scapegoats about 4-5 times this duel thanks to Magician of Faith to protect myself from his D.D. Warrior Lady and Assailants. His Thousand-Eyes took care of any of my offense and finally his BLS came out, with other cards, took out my life points.

Game 2: Duo’d his hand, only end up having mind Duo’d in return. Not much Scapegoats for me to use and defend since my deck was shuffled by both of us several times. He played Snatch Steal on my BLS, kept it with Tsukuyomi (Or was it Book of Moon?) attacked, I blocked it somehow. My turn, I Tsukuyomi’d my own BLS and used Nobleman of Crossout. He brought out his BLS again, and I was top decking like mad, countering with Mirror Force, Exiled Force and the like. I think had my Airknight out, he flipped his Magician of Faith to get his Snatch Steal for the win.

Winner: Dexter

2-3 record, not to shabby for me, and I would’ve liked it if there were more participants like the other tourney players that appear usually, but I guess they were all busy. Went downstairs, bought Brain Control since it was only 10 dollars and Johnny bought himself a Sage’s Stone for his Dark Magician deck. Bought more DB2, pulled utter crap while Mike pulled the first Morphing Jar out of all of us. Maybe those rumors of there only being 1 per box is true. Also I find it odd how I keep pulling Luminous Soldier, Magical Thorn, Dragon Seeker and Shining Friendship in the same order in like 5 packs I’ve bought. O_O



- Better record than last tournament x.x

- Bought Brain Control

- Made Top 8


- Having to face Dexter as soon as I make Top 8

- Unable to pull anything good from DB2

- Read below for the side note that was a big con

On a side note, I’d like to mention a certain young, na´ve, and REALLY annoying individual who’s always at Excalibur whose name rhymes with Kames. He may be a noob, but a rather annoying one. Asking ridiculous questions like “Can someone let me have a Breaker?” Or the kind of question that would get you funny stares at Regionals: “Is Command Knight better than Sinister Serpent?” And here’s the charmer that he personally asked me: “Does your Chaos deck run BLS?” I gave him a free Injection Fairy Lily once, ripped myself off to get cards off him and you know how he repaid me today? When Mike pulled some DB2’s he didn’t need, he gave them to me, and I notice some nice decent cards like Bottomless Trap Hole. I decided that I’d give these to the younger players in my street so they could get better with my help. While I’m looking through the cards, “Kames” just looks along, snatches the Bottomless cards and some other useful cards I had separated for myself and said in an irritating teeny-bopper voice “HEY, HEY CAN I HAVE THAT!” and walked off. Of course I could’ve reported him but it’d be a waste. I really loathe the kid for being so rude and selfish and I don’t care if it’s because he’s young, I have 9 and 8 year old kids who duel with me in my street that are less repulsive than him. If you ever encounter someone like this… *squirms*

Also if anyone is attending the Regionals on 07-Aug-05 in Mississauga, ON and/or the 28-Aug-2005 Regionals at the Canadian Nation Expo, feel free to email me if you wanna have any plans to meet up.

As always, any comments or suggestions can be sent to captain_phan@hotmail.com Thanks for reading my atrocious tourney report.
