Less than 100 but I don t know for sure.
Hello, and welcome to the Controlled Burn Regionals
First off sorry for the long absence I DID go to my local
tournaments the last couple of weeks but I couldn t remember
anything about my games so there was no tournament report
material. In these last few weeks I ve been changing the
deck around quite a bit and I felt that it was ready for the
regionals. A few noticeable changes are the additional
messengers as well as the des koalas and the cyber jar. One
thing this deck really needs is a morphing jar but those
little suckers are just so hard to find even if they re db2
nobody wants to trade them. Looking back at my deck I just
realized there were only 5 cards I sidedecked the entire
day. This was of course due to the sad cookie cutter chaos
dominated state of the metagame. You ll see what I mean
during my tournament report. But anyway here s my new and
2xMagician of Faith
3xMessenger of Peace
2xLevel Limit-Area B
1xPot of Greed
1xRing of Destruction
1xBarrel Behind the Door
1xHorn of Heaven
1xTribe Infecting Virus
1xBook of Moon
1xSwords of Revealing Light
3xThousand Eyes Restrict
I get to the tournament fill out my decklist and pretty soon
the tournament s underway!
Controlled Burn Vs CCC
I get paired against a girl with a weird playing mat
(pyramids or something).
The messengers do a good job of holding her down while I
slowly burn her. BLS comes out but lava golem takes care of
him. I win.
Note: for all cookie cutter decks I side in bottomless,
divine wrath and horn of heaven.
This one she got me down to 600 by attacking me mainly with
a night assailant and a sinister LOL. I had level limit and
messenger on the field with her heavy in grave. Anyway I
somehow manage to get her to 1600 but she breaks through my
defense and wins.
We play a couple of turns and I burn her a little. Suddenly,
time is called and I have the higher life pts. So I just
stall for the next three turns when I have the highest life
pts. Winning for me. I hate winning on time but hey I won so
it works for me.
Controlled Burn Vs CCC (yawn)
Not much to see here, Chaos Again.
My burn cards just demolish him. Stealth bird did 3000 and
the rest was from lava and wave and maybe a secret barrel or
two. The only damage I took was from duo and 200 from
messenger of peace. Oh yeah I gained 3000 life points with
He sidedecks 11 (!) cards. I still can t believe I won this
one. He used cursed seal early on wave motion so that
sucked. Then the rest of the game is punctuated with mobius
dust tornados and swarm of locusts destroying my spell and
traps. Anyway in the middle of the game we both have very
few cards in our hands and fields and he s just recently
blown away a lot of my spells and traps with a swarm of
locusts and he attacked my magician, I take back messenger,
and then I sac his locust and something else for lava golem,
play messenger and after that he just can t recover.
Alright I m doing pretty well with a 2-0 record. But will I
fall to the cookie cutterness hole-or will it bow before me?
Controlled Burn Vs CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC (sigh)
I didn t like this guy he was way too cocky.
I burn him down to 1200 and play secret barrel when he has 6
cards on the field and hand. He chains ceasefire and says
secret barrel counts one less now. I disagree because the
cards don t go to the graveyard until the chain resolves. We
call a judge over and he sides with him and that sucks. I
still say he s wrong, but hey can t argue with a judge.
Anyway I m forced to end my turn and he summons Black Luster
Soldier-Envoy of the Broken and kills me. Grrrr stupid BLS.
Ha! This one goes in my favor and in the end it s the wave
motions that finish him off!
Yes!! The Messengers stall him and I slowly burn him up! You
could tell he was not happy.
Controlled Burn Vs Guess who.
It s hard to remember details about this and the next duel
but I lost this one.
Sorry no details. I won.
This game I am not proud of. Anyways he sets a monster and a
magic trap and ends his turn. My turn I get Trinity! After
playing it I set ring and summon sangan. His turn he
gracefuls, dumps a light and a dark, Drops BLS, removes
sangan and here s where I make my big mistake. I immediately
ring his BLS before he enters the battle phase. Sadly he
prematures BLS, flips up blade knight, attacks, and that s
game. Note to self: ring monsters during battle step.
In between rounds: I buy two packs of db2 and pull command
knight (good) and cyber stein (I would rather have had a
morphing jar but still ok). Little did I know that that
cyber stein would be quite useful trade material later on.
Controlled Burn Vs CcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcCcC
Nothing really different here.
Games 1 2 and 3
Ugh I cant remember anything about these three games except
that I lost the first one one the second and lost the third.
Controlled Burn Vs Gravekeepers
Finally somebody with a Non-Chaos Deck!!! I liked this kid,
he was nice and dueled politely.
My wave motions totally demolish him. 2 of them hit him for
5000 total and that was game.
He sidedecks 8 cards and starts off with an obviously
sidedecked wave motion. I play my own wave motions and the
game continues a while until he attacks and sends wave to
leave me at 100 life pts left. I draw and can t do anything
to stop his attack next turn. He wins.
We each play quietly for a while until he suddenly
gravekeeper swarms for the win. Even though I lost I still
enjoyed that match.
Even though there s no way to win I decide to play on for
Controlled Burn Vs All-Trap-DeckHa Ha! Just kidding. I
played against the usual CCCCCCCCCCC.
Same old, same old.
Once again my memory fails me. I lose this one.
While we re siding he keeps going on about how I m siding
out my burn cards to put in beatdown stuff and I m like yeah
whatever. Anyway since he didn t side in anti-burn I win.
This time he really does sidedeck his anti-burn and kills
Well, I finish well a not-so-respectable 3-4 record. Since I
left pretty soon after the last round I didn t get to see
what ranking I was at the end. It probably wasn t so good
I did manage to do some nice trades while I was there. I
traded my spare TER that was in bad condition for two BoMs
which will soon replace the secret barrels. My best trade
though was the cyber stein for and ultimate rare ultimate
insect LV1, (now I have the set in ultimate!) another Horn
of Heaven, and 2 flaming eternity packs. I opened up the
flaming eternity packs and see a lightning vortex! Expect
that to replace magic jammer as my discard card.
All in all it was an ok tournament despite being dominated
That concludes my tournament report for this week.
Until next week
