Tourney Report!!!

What a weekend it was. Three friends and I started out on Friday to get to Origins early for registration and some other fun events. I had only had 4 hours of sleep the night before since we were leaving at 6 and I had to get up at about 4, but that was not too bad. I had one version of my deck set up the way I liked playing it at home and was really excited to get to Origins and try it. When we arrived it was about 9 a.m. my time and 10 Ohio time. We decided to walk around for a while before heading to the line and wait to get badges for the day and Nationals day. It was nice to hear that the day at Nationals was being paid for by UDE.

After quite some time my friends and I entered a box tournament. Not much to say about the action, but I did very poorly and so I knew that night I would have to make some changes. First thing I made sure to do was to add the Scapegoats. I realized I wasn't holding my field position too well and was taking unnecessary hits. Other things were added including the stupid Creature Swap which came into my hand at way too many bad times.

This night I got about 6 hours of sleep and had to get to Origins by 10 for a brief meeting and then to game play. If I confused any of the names with decks or messed anything else up I am sorry it was a long day:

Match 1: Me vs Clayton Wilson

He seemed like a nice guy. However, I pretty much obliterated him. I am pretty sure this guy ran a type of Chaos, but I defeated him fairly easy. I think I was kind of lucky with great hands for this duel. I think this guy ended up 74th for the day as well.

Duel 1: My life went up due to Snatch Steal, I don't recall much else.

Me: 8000 - 7400 - 8400 - 9400 - 8600 - 6700

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6500 - 6500 - 6000 - 4100 - 1700 - 0

I Win

Duel 2:

Me: 8000 - 7000

Him: 8000 - 7300 - 6300 - 4100 - 0

I Win

Record: 1 - 0

Match 2: Me vs Tony Martin

This match would go to three, but the two I won, I did so fairly easily. The second one I had a horrible hand. I think this is one of the Tsuku decks I faced, but he used Tsuku mainly on his Chaos Sorcerors. He would remove with Sorceror summon Tsuku flipping Sorceror down, flipping him and attacking. Kind of interesting and a fun duel. He also used Zombyra the Dark.

Duel 1: I can tell a few things about this. I am pretty sure he surprised me a bit with getting great hand advantage with searchers and such. Zombyra could take down some of my stronger monsters, too. However, Chaos Sorceror would only be a slight nuisance.

Me: 8000 - 7200 - 7000 - 5500 - 3200

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 4800 - 2900 - 600 - 0

I Win

Duel 2: I lost... bad hand and nothing I could really do. It was a fairly close score though.

Me: 8000 - 5700 - 3800 - 2200 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7700 - 6900 - 5300 - 4800 - 4300 - 2900 - 2100

I Lose

Duel 3: This duel was a matter of big hits mainly. He first attacked one of my Giant Germs, which promptly attacked him directly the next turn after I took out his monster. A short while later he was able to get out Tribe-Infecting Virus and clear my field, then summoned BLS and attacked me for 4600. My hand was basically set for a win since he had no m/t set. I snatch stole his BLS, summoned Dark Necrofear and Slate Warrior and took him out.

Me: 8000 - 3400

Him: 8000 - 7500 - 5500 - 0

I Win

Record 2 - 0

Match 3: Me vs Brian Peterson

I got way too lucky in this match. Both games I opened with Tribe and Serpent in hand. He was running a Metamorphasis stall deck with Chaos probably... didn't see it, though.

Duel 1: I know I hit him with Tribe twice early after clearing his field. He summoned Fusilier and morphed him into Last Warrior from another Planet. I Snatch Stole LWFAP and pretty much beat him with it.

Me: 8000 - 7250

Him: 8000 - 6400 - 4800 - 4050 - 550 - 1550 - 0

I Win

Duel 2: The life points got a bit messed up and we had to take some time to figure it out, but I think it went like this.

Me: 8000 - 6100 - 4400 - 1400

Him: 8000 - 6400 - 5900 - 4200 - 2200 - 400 - 0

I Win

Record 3 - 0

Match 4: Me vs Gary Kutcha from Team Nexus

Time for my luck to run out. This was another Chaos deck. I had a really hard time dealing with his field. I was so close to winning one of the duels, but nonetheless I lost.

Duel 1: My Germ or Sangan was bashing him and he either couldn't or wouldn't stop it for at least 4 turns. I got so close before I think BLS came out and messed me up completely.

Me: 8000 - 5700 - 4300 - 3500 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6000 - 5000 - 2700 - 1900

I Lose

Duel 2: I think he snatch stole my Necrofear and Metamorphed it into Gatling Dragon, but I am not sure.

Me: 8000 - 7600 - 6600 - 2000 - 1000 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6500 - 5700

I Lose

Record 3 - 1

Match 5: Me vs Hunter Miller

Have you ever had one match that became a really depressing loss? This was mine, probably a lot of the reason I forgot to write down the name of my next opponent. This guy ran a burn deck with BLS!!! What the... Anyway, I made one big mistake that probably cost me the match that I will get to in a moment.

Duel 1: I went up in flames by the burn. Completely unexpected, but I knew my side deck could help. He finished me by activating 2 Secret Barrels at once. His damage was only caused by his own Messenger of Peace.

Me: 8000 - 6100 - 5100 - 3600 - 2600 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7900 - 7800

I Lose

Duel 2: Massive side decking. I put about 7 cards in to help out. I drew most of my help cards early including Mobius, Cursed Seal of Forbidding Spell, and Mystic Swordsman LV2. Cursed Seal hit his Wave Motion Cannon and Mystic Swordsman wiped out his Stealth Birds.

Me: 8000 - 6100

Him: 8000 - 7900 - 5300 - 4300 - 0

I Win

Duel 3: I sided in one more card and he side decked as well. I made the mistake here. When I Call of the Haunted my Jinzo to stop him from finishing me with Secret Barrel I forgot to use my set/summon for the turn. I should have set my Night Assailant and I could have cleared a monster that I forget now from really hurting me later on. I did hit him for a lot with Jinzo, Lava Golem, and King Tiger Wanghu on the next turn, but I failed in the end. He used ring on his BLS finishing me and putting him at 300.

Me: 8000 - 7000 - 6900 - 6200 - 5200 - 4200 - 3200 - 1300 - 0

Him: 8000 - 3300 - 300

I Lose

Record 3 - 2

Match 6: Me vs Guy I forgot to record the name of...

I know this was a Chaos deck, but I don't recall much else. I Ringed a DD Assailant early, heh. This was a sad loss.

Duel 1:

Me: 8000 - 6300 - 5300 - 2700 - 100 - 0

Him: 8000 - 6300

I Lose

Duel 2:

Me: 8000 - 6400 - 4500 - 2400 - 300 - 0

Him 8000 - 7500 - 5200 - 6200 - 7200 - 6200 - 5700 - 6700 - 5100 - 3200 - 1000

I Lose

Record 3 - 3

Match 7: Me vs Reynaldo Lizo

This guy had to go to the bathroom the entire time the duel was going on and he was easily distracted as well. While we were dueling the guy sitting next to me was basically thrown out of the place for dueling under someone elses name. This guy was running a Chaos deck with Wave Motion Cannon in it.

Duel 1:

Me: 8000 - 7000 - 4300 - 5300 - 4200

Him: 8000 - 7200 - 6100 - 3900 - 1700 - 700 - 100 - 0

I Win

Duel 2:

Me: 8000 - 7400 - 5400 - 3400 - 1700 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6500 - 4500 - 3500 - 3000 - 2200

I Lose

Duel 3: He actually had to quit at the end of this because he had to go to the bathroom so bad.

Me: 8000 - 7500 - 6600 - 4900 - 2000

Him: 8000 - 6100 - 4200 - 3200 - 2400 - 700

I Win

Record 4 - 3

Match 8: Me vs Jonny Nagel

I was kind of glad that this was an original deck, but I didn't like his attitude too well. I won, but after I won the guy said he would give me a card if I signed the win over to him. I looked, but there was no way I would. This guy was using a beast deck.

Duel 1: I Nobleman of Crossout'd his Nimble Momonga and it went down hill for him from there even though it looks close. I attacked his Enraged Battle Ox with Giant Germ, summoned another and attacked it again to finish him.

Me: 8000 - 7900 - 7200 - 5200 - 3800 - 2500 - 1700

Him: 8000 - 6100 - 4200 - 3700 - 800 - 300 - 0

I Win

Duel 2: I attacked a Nimble... then all went horribly bad. Out came too more. He played Graceful dumping Manticore of Darkness, played Enemy Controller on my Slate Warrior, summoned the Hand of N, tributed Slate and Hand for the Phoenix, and attacked. At the end of the turn he had the Phoenix and Manticore on the field so I was basically doomed.

Me: 8000 - 5600 - 3700 - 0

Him: 8000 - 9000

I Lose

Duel 3: This was interesting. He almost beat me with Dimension Fusion bringing out 2X Bazoo, Tribe, Exiled, and Serpent. I hung on, summoned my Tribe wiped out his beasts, and came back for a great victory.

Me: 8000 - 6400 - 5600 - 400

Him: 8000 - 7500 - 7200 - 3400 - 1400 - 1100 - 0

I Win

Record 5 - 3

Match 9: Me vs Henry Ke

Henry would end up 38th so I don't feel too bad about losing to him. He ran a Zombie/Chaos deck that was very tough. Dark Necrofear did confuse him for a bit, however.

Duel 1: I think Vampire Lord pretty much had his way with me...

Me: 8000 - 7200 - 5200 - 3200 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7800 - 6800 - 6600 - 4200 - 3100 - 4100

I Lose

Duel 2: His Sangan was beating me up for quite a while and then I think he summoned BLS and kept removing my stuff. I also couldn't draw anything helpful...

Me: 8000 - 7200 - 6200 - 5200 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7500 - 6700 - 4300 - 4100 - 3300

I Lose

Record 5 - 4

Match 10: Me vs Richard Lataila (sp?)

I really do like the strategy this deck used. He ran Serpent, Night Assailants with flips including Slate, and Thunder Dragons to try and improve his hand size. It was a fun duel and one of the best all day. It is the only match I actually got to try out the new time running out rule they created. The funniest thing about this was both times he got to use D-Duo I won. When he didn't he won.

Duel 1: Very close game and a lot of fun. It took us over 20 minutes to finish this one and a judge came over to watch us play.

Me: 8000 - 7000 - 6000 - 5600 - 4000 - 2100 - 200

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6900 - 6100 - 3700 - 2900 - 1000 - 0

I Win

Duel 2: Meh, not much to say, but I lost. It was still fun.

Me: 8000 - 7500 - 5100 - 3800 - 2300 - 700 - 0

Him: 8000 - 7200 - 5300 - 4700

I Lose

Duel 3: This is the duel that went to time. I had way too much of an advantage when time was called for him to make a comeback so I won. I give props to this guy.

Me: 8000 - 7400 - 6600 - 4500 - end of time - 5500

Him: 8000 - 7000 - 6000 - 5000 - 2300 - end of time

Final Record: 6 - 4

A fun day full of excitement. Three of my friends also went 6-4 and the other friend who was there went 5-5. I won 3 packs of cards. I was glad to go, it was a great day and would go again if the chance arises. Hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it.
