Tournament report for 8/21/05
Welcome to this week's tournament report. I hope this
writing finds you well and winning!
There was another regional event held this weekend that I
didn't attend. I had a corporate business function I had to
attend. I am not going to attend any high level tournament
competition until after the new ban list. Even then,
depending on what decisions Konami makes, I may not attend
any regional event. I must wait until the new ban list to
decide wether or not I want to seriously pursue any type of
goal involving this game.
The topic of much discussion among all of the higher level
players at the tournament today involved the current sad
state of the metagame. Luck has always played a factor in
all games, but in Yugioh, luck is at least 90% of the reason
why people win. There isn't much skill in drawing three
cards in your opening hand that destroys your opponent. I
think most of you know which three cards I'm referring to.
Since the battle position ruling changed, decks have become
even more cookie cutter than ever. Decks are now so close to
identical there is probably only a 5 card difference between
a typical chaos build. It's ridiculous. Sure, there are
people who try to play with different deck types, but when
you play a person running a netdecked CCC build, your
chances of winning plummet to almost nil. Blah, blah, yeah,
yeah you can defeat chaos decks with (insert ridiculously
retarted deck type or card here), but if you don't have all
the cards you need in your hand when you need them, you are
going to lose to the same ol' crap over and over again. Even
the best players get wiped out because of stupid dumb luck
and there's nothing you can do to defend otherwise.
Enough of the rant.
Well, even though Cybernetic Revolution wasn't really
tournament legal today, the person who won didn't seem to
care. Especially since this tournament is really rather
pointless, because no one has entered the points in months
anyway and I don't know why I keep going. It's an exercise
Enough of that rant, too.
I didn't care if I won or lost.
Oops, I feel another rant coming.
I've taken apart all of my decks and have cards scattered
all over the place. I need to spend a week organizing them
all. It is such a massive ordeal, everytime I start, I'm
overwhelmed at the number of silly pieces of card board I
actually own! LoL.
OK. This week, I decided to mix up a little CCC with some
innovation. If I hadn't gotten creamed in the second round
by a deck that wasn't tournament legal anyway, I could have
tested this deck out a little more. I think the idea is
solid, but here again, I didn't draw my cards before my
opponent did. One game was really hysterical and ILMAO the
way I lost.....

We got there about a half an hour early and I was shocked at
some little kid who came up and was smart mouthing at a
group of us. I had never seen anyone so disrespectful and
smart-a** before in my whole life! This kid was probably
nine years old and I wanted to slap him! What an arrogant
little jerk. Where was his momma? He and his little homie
I practiced duel against a Chaos deck (which wasn't very
good but he managed to have BLS out on the third or fourth
turn all the time). I won consistantly.

Yeah, yeah. I side deck into pure CCCjunk. I'm defeated.
FAOChaos VS Chaos
LOL. The first pairing is with the guy I've been beating the
pants off while practicing. Hah.
He goes first and sets a monster and one S/T, which was his
usual opening move when practicing. I make a mental note to
side deck in the second Nobleman of Crossout.
My opening hand is pretty good with two Orcs, Ojama Trio,
Snatch, Pot of Greed and Final Attack Orders. I activate Pot
and get another FAO and Reflect Bounder. I set FAO and the
Trio, summon the Orc and attack his set Spirit of the Harp.
Yeah, I told you his deck wasn't very good.
He draws and sets another monster.
I draw Dark Driceratops and tribute for it, trampling his
700def Kycoo. LoL.
He Compulsories the Driceratops, Heavys my set cards and I
chain the Ojama Trio. He summons an Archfiend Soldier,
special summons BLS and attacks me for a flippin' lot. Ouch.
4900LP damage in one bite.
I draw Trunade, Snatch Steal his BLS and remove it from play
with his effect. My opponent is like, "I didn't know you
could do that." Well, now you know. Haha. I summon my second
Orc, attack his Archfiend Soldier and set the Final Attack
He Fissures my Orc, summons a Newdoria and attacks me for
I activate Final Attack Orders, turning all the little Ojama
Tokens to attack position with an attack of zero. I summon
Reflect Bounder and attack a token for the game winning hit.
Whee!!! That was fun.
I side deck in the second NoC for the Smashing Ground.
He sets one S/T and summons Don Zaloog. Ok, he's pretty
confident in that set card, or he wants me to attack the Don
to get it in the graveyard.
I activate Graceful, discard Call of the Haunted and Enemy
Controller. I set Magician of Faith, Book of Moon and Ojama
He summons TiV and activates Tribute to the Doomed on my MoF
(darn it, but he's dumping his hand). He attacks with TiV
and I take it, I activate Book of Moon on Don's attack.
I draw Sangan, set it and Torrential.
He discards a Blade Knight for TiV's effect to put dark Don
in the graveyard. He special summons BLS and I Torrential.
He doesn't use priority to remove Sangan from play so
hooray, I get a Magician of Faith. I'm not going to explain
priority to him. Heheh. Is that cheating? Is that wrong? Is
it my place to make sure my opponent understands all the
rules? No, it isn't. If you're going to play in a
tournament, you'd better know what you are doing.
I set the MoF and Final Attack Orders.
He flippin' Premature Burial's BLS and removes my Magician
from play. Darn it.
I top deck Lightning Vortex! Hahah. Im losing and pay even
more LP for Delinquent Duo but this takes his hand down to
He stalls three consecutive turns while he top decks a
Compulsory, another Compulsory and a Waboku. That's
annoying. On his fourth topdeck draw he gets nothing and I
manage to finish him off.
FAOChaos VS Cyberstein/Cyber Dragon/machine/nontournament
Ah, whatever. Nobody seems to care that we aren't suppose to
be using cards from the new set so, I go with the flow.
First off, I have to say everyone is peeing in their pants
over this Cyberstein OTK junk and people, it ain't gonna
work like you want it to all the time. This is the first of
what I am sure will be many, many, many attempts at this
deck. I will say, I did lose, but I did not lose to the OTK,
nor did I lose to how the deck is SUPPOSE to run. I lost to
sheer, LUCK and I defy anyone in the entire Yugioh world to
tell me otherwise. I didn't lose to the deck build. I didn't
lose to the skill of the player. I didn't lose because I
made a mistake. I lost because he was lucky and I wasn't.
This is almost the funniest duel I have ever had. I get
Ring, Heavy, Breaker, Orc, Duo and Sangan. I Duo a
Mechanical Chaser and and he discards NoC. Well, thinking
I'm pretty safe from his second NoC, I set Sangan and Ring.
He Noblemans my Sangan. Whatth?! Haha. That was funny. He
doesn't do anything else.
I summon Giant Orc and he uses Enemy Controller to turn it
to defense. I set Ojama Trio.
He activates Graceful Charity. He pays 800LP for Brain
Control and I Ring my Orc to stop him from taking it. Darn
it. He activates Swords.
I summon Breaker, remove the token to get rid of Swords and
He sets a monster.
I draw Jinzo and tribute for him, attacking his Magician of
Faith. Crap. Where's my Nobleman of Crossout? He gets
Graceful Charity back.
He plays Graceful Charity. He discards Cyberstein and
something else. He plays Pot of Greed. He special summons
Cyber Dragon, the newest nearly broken card in the game. I
haven't made up my mind yet if it really is totally broken.
He uses Enemy Controller, tributing his Cyber Dragon to take
my Jinzo. It's getting closer to broken, now. LoL. He
Limiter's my own Jinzo, hitting me for 4800Lp damage and
taking me down to 1600LP.
Well, he's used Graceful twice and Pot once and starts
attacking me wit,h a Sinister Serpent. I can't draw a
monster and to add insult to injury, he summons his Morphing
Jar and starts attacking me with it! LoL. I summon Exiled
Force to at least attack his Serpent and get rid of his
Morphing Jar and he Mirror Forces me! I bust out laughing.
That was too funny. He wins by beating me up with my own
monster, a Sinister and Morphing Jar. Ahhhh....that was
Nothing I could do. The Holy Trinity takes me out of the
game before I even get to draw. I have no advantage. The
odds of me recovering from that are about as slim as Osama
Bin-Laden sharing a meal at Denny's with Jesus Christ.
Delinquent Duo, Graceful, Pot, Graceful and Magician of
Faith, just totally wipe me out in about three turns. Cyber
Dragon lets him easily use Enemy Controller to take my Dark
Driceratops. Magician of Faith gets his Enemy Controller
back so he can attack me with my own monster twice in a row.
He Mirror Forces me and Heavy Storms me.
That is stupid and pretty much sums up the state of the game
right now. It's BS.
Ok, now onto the bright side of things. I actually liked the
deck. I never once pulled the Asura Priest Big Bang Shot
Ojama Trio Final Attack Orders combo, but I did get to hit a
token now and then. It was actually pretty fun to run. I
think next week, I am going to run as pure a beastdown
trample deck as I can. Maybe even bring back the Pandas by
popular demand. Not sure if I want to put the Priest in or
not. We'll see.
After I got eliminated, we hung out and ate pizza. I dueled
against the other deck flavor of the month everyone is
touting as the greatest thing since sliced bread, the
deck-out deck or, the mill deck. Listen to me people. I have
been trying to make this deck type consistantly work for
months and months. Just because Needle Worm is common and
Morphing Jar is rare, the sudden availabilty of these cards
DO NOT make the deck leap to the forefront of tournament
play. As with any FTK, or OTK, or Deck out, or whathaveyou,
the inherent weakness of these decks is their inability to
consistantly perform. If you do not get the intended effect
within two to three turns, you are going to lose!!!! They
are fragile and easily countered if they do not go off very
early in the duel.
Just to give you a brief synopsis of how these duels went
down. Turn one. My opponent sets his Cyber Jar, the KEY card
to this type of deck. I use Nobleman of Crossout on it and
his deck crumbles. He manages to utilize the single Morphing
Jar to good effect, but he decks himself out with it and I
have three cards left in my deck he has none. I draw Pot of
Greed, just to be funny play it, taking my deck to no cards
and end my turn. Hah. He can't draw because he's already
decked himself out. The second duel, he got it off and
decked me out. GG. Third duel, NoC and Heavy Storm bust him
up. Night Assailant eat his monsters, Enemy Controller
steals his Morphing Jar and it collapses like a house of
cards and I pummel him.
Thanks it for this week!
Until next time, happy dueling!
