RegnR8's Total Body Control
Tournament Report for June 12, 2005

Hi all,

Welcome to today's tournament report! I hope this writing finds you well and winning!

Today, I make the biggest mistake I have ever made during a tournament duel and it cost me the match. It's as simple as that.

Yesterday, I tried out this deck and it worked fairly well, taking second place. I made a few changes, adding even more tribute monsters because I had a difficult time having tributes in my hand when I could get then out.
Today, I still felt the deck was short on tribute monsters, even though there are eleven now. Again, there were numerous times when I had no tribute monsters in my hand, but held plenty of cards to take my opponents monsters.
The S/T line up remained unchanged. The Light of Intervention worked well again and the Stray Lamb were an good asset.

I added Granmarg who turned out to be a good addition. I'm thinking about adding in some Zaborg, too but I have to destroy a monster. It may work out if I have a token on the field or my opponent has Scapegoats out so, he's a possibility. I am thinking about adding a couple of Monster Gate but, I don't know. I may just toss in a couple, up the card count to 42 and have 12 to 13 tributes.

25 to 30 people today

Had a good crowd today. The number of players was back up to where it usually is around 25 to 30. Hopefully, vacations and holidays are over for a while and the crowd will be a little larger.

We got there right on time and I tested out my Skull Servant deck a little and it was fun. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't but at least it was a hoot. Sign up began about an hour late as usual. A lot of us are getting tired of having to wait for the "judge" to finish playing around before he decides he's ready to start signing people up.
So, if you're reading this, hurry up next time.

ROUND 1
TOTAL BODY CONTROL VS SPELLCASTER

This guy has never, ever, remotely gotten close to beating me.

GAME 1

On his opening turn, he sets three S/T cards and summons Skilled Dark Magician. I had drawn Heavy Storm in my first draw. LoL.

I play Heavy Storm and he chains Inter dimensional Matter Transporter on his Skilled Dark. He says, "I have a reason for doing that". Like I really care. Whatever. I was going to take it with Soul Exchange this turn, but I guess I'll wait until next turn. I set the a Scapegoat.

He tributes the Skilled Dark for Jinzo with such a flourish and bravado, I nearly bust out laughing. He exclaims, "I sacrifice
Silled Dark Magician to bring JINZO to the field!" He literally slams down Jinzo like it's going to help him. "I attack your life points directly!" I activate Scapegoat. "I hate Scapegoat!" he exclaims. Don't we all.

I Snatch Steal his Jinzo and keep it for a while. He activates SoRL and sets a monster which I Soul Exchange for Mobius and get rid of his SoRL. I tibute his Jinzo for my Jinzo and continue to destroy him. 8000 to negative 2400. GG.

GAME 2

He actually lasts a few turns longer this time. My Light of Intervention forces him to play his Soul Tiger in face up defense position and I'm able to use Brain Control on it for Mobius. I tribute a Lamb for Granmarg and destroy his other S/T card and then TiV comes out and wipes out everything he had. GG again.

He says, "I did better than I usually do against you, didn't I?" Uh, well...no.

ROUND 2
TOTAL BODY CONTROL VS CCCC

Great, my first cookie cutter chaos of the day. Let's see how fast I get killed.

GAME 1

He opens up with a first turn Delinquent Duo (What a surprise). A Magician of Faith later, he Duo's me again. My Big Shield Gardna stalls after he tries to NoC it. Ha ha. I think I'm going to run two Garndas, they're THAT fun. Somehow, I manage to get the upper hand and turn the duel around. His Scapegoats are keeping him alive. Unfortunately, I attack a Cyber Jar and he gets a whole lot of stuff on the next turn like, Vortex and crap and well, it was ugly...I had him down to 1500 and he came back.

GAME 2

He sets a face down card and I attack it and it's Cyber Jar again.
No!!!! I hate that card. This time, it doesn't help him as much and I manage to squeak by with a tight win.

GAME 3

Light of Intervention is such a great card. He tries to Book of Moon my Mobius but can't because of it. I take all his monsters for my own with Soul Exchange and Brain Control. I take out Jinzo from his hand with Thestalos which I had tributed a Lamb token for. He's like, "Wait, you can't do that."
Yes I can. I just did. I think he was paniced because I won this duel handily.

ROUND 3
TOTAL BODY CONTROL VS I WASN'T TOO SURE WHAT TO CALL IT

I suppose this deck is a version of a Chaos deck. I didn't see enough of it really, to make a solid determination. I did see Apprentice Magician and Magician of Faith though. I guess Phoenix was in it, I don't know for sure.

I don't take a lot of notes during this duel because he is one of the few people I duel where I have to think.

GAME 1

Two Thestalos and Tribe are totally owning him with a Light of Intervention active. His MoF and Apprentice are useless. He top decks Lightning Vortex when he has 1200LP left. I'm holding Premature Burial so, I shrug it off, Premature Tribe next turn and attack for the win.
That was a lot easier than I thought. He drew a fairly lousy hand.

GAME 2

Oh crap. Sakeretsu Armor blows up my End of Anubis and I draw no more tribute monsters with a hand full of Stray Lamb, Brain Control, Soul Exchange and Enemy Controller. I need MORE tributes.

GAME 3

This is where I make the biggest mistake ever and I just handed him the win. I beat myself this game.

I was winning handily with Thestalos and End of Anubis on the field. I had already hit him for a good bit, I think he was down to maybe 1300LP. Well, to make an embarrassing long story short, I had Heavy Storm in my hand but didn't play it because I wanted to keep my Light of Intervention active on the field. I attacked and got Mirror Force'd and I didn't draw another tribute monster and I lost because I are stoopid.....

It's all good!

Hey, I know I could have made it further but, I simply screwed up in the most major way possible! Woohoo!!

I stayed for a while longer and there was a team duel challenge thing.
I paired up with another guy and we decided to use of combined zombie power and got totally destroyed because of BLS and it wasn't fun. I thought it would be fun to team duel but no, people can't even play a fun tournament without their little BLS crutch.

After the lame team duel thing, I stayed longer and play tested a bunch of decks and had a good time. Most of the people left and the remaining players were the better ones, dedicated to creativity and fun, who actually have some different decks so, it was actually enjoyable losing to a pyro deck or defeating someone with my Skull Servants. It was getting late and I had to leave before I got to duel a few folks I had wanted to.

Until next time, happy dueling!
