Subject: Local Brookhaven, MS Tourney "Hamon: Round 2" by Jason "Pippin"Reeves

The weekly local Brookhaven, MS Tournament at the Computer Place was held this Saturday, April 8. New decks appeared as if by magic. The new ban-list held its sway on the first post-ban Saturday Tourney on the 1st of April, and changes were made to change with it. The big hitter Raphael, Stein/Power Bond deck, did not show up clearing the way for another finalist. 2 new players, older than the average participant, looked like heavy favorites to win or at least place.

Again, Hamon has made is return fresh from a debut tourney victory. Players have adjusted and added a bit more magic destruction to their decks. One player changed his whole deck from an Uria burn, to a Barrel Dragon/ Gatlin Dragon machine deck. Uria sits lonely gathering dust in the guts of Tradebait Binder number 2. This tourney would tell if Hamon was truely dominant, or just a twisted sickening kink in fate.

FIRST the deck.

Tribute Monsters = 5
3 x Lava Golem
2 x Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder

Non-Tribute Monsters = 13
3 x Stealth Birds
2 x Spirit Reapers
2 x Ebon Magician Curran
2 x Magician of Faith
2 x Des Lacooda
2 x Mystic Tomatoes

Spells = 18
3 x Messenger of Peace
2 x The Dark Door
2 x Toll
2 x Swords of Conceiling Light
2 x Wave-Motion Cannon
1 x Level Limit Area B
1 x Scapegoats
1 x Swords of Revealing Light
1 x Mystical Space Typhoon
1 x Graceful Charity
1 x Premature Burial
1 x Giant Trunade

Traps = 4
2 x Gravity Bind
2 x Royal Decree

Round 1:
Played a kid. Confident little sucker, I'll give him that. He ran a 33 card deck, so he had to add cards, but had no card sleaves, so we had to take all his cards out of sleaves and he played without. Once we got started, it did not take long for me to set a Spirit Reaper, give him a Lava Golem, play Level Limit Area B, and start flipping Stealth Birds. Short Duel, and a perplexed looking duelist on the raw end of a flip burn


Round 2: Casey and the Machines
Casey's deck used to be the Uria burn deck, but he wisely changed to the Machine Dragons (Barrel and Blowback). I had him locked down tight flipping and burning at will. Until he Heavy Stormed, Played Blowback dragon and targeted my spirit reaper. After a few failed attempts to stall (I think he had a double headed quarter), I fell to his attacks. Sadly I moved to the losers bracket (and a 30 minute wait for the bracket to catch up to me.)

1:1 >:( evil casey

Round 3: Evil Dead's Warrior Deck
Can't remember the guys name, but he wore an Evil Dead T-shirt with ash on the front, so I instantly took him for cool. His warrior deck was pretty forward, get em out, beef em up, ram em through. Unfortunately enough, my deck is built to stop said strategy. After a bit of stalling and flipping and smacking around, I came out ahead (2 face down Stealth Birds, 1 Face up Curran, Wave-Motion cannon on 2nd round, and he had 3 monsters on the field that could not attack because of Messenger of Peace). Evil Dead Dude is re-Dead Dude.


Round 4: Another Nameless wonder (Spellcasters).
He starts well, but cannot seem to get what is needed. Everytime he would set monsters in anticipation of future effects, I would give him a Lava Golem with a stall on the field. I set Stealth Birds and play Wave-Motion. After 4 turns with Wave on the field, I flip my last bird and blow up WMC for game. Nifty deck, just needs a bit of tuning.


Round 5: Casey and his Unbeaten Machines
Ok. By this point, other people are suspicious of Casey having a Double Headed Quarter :P BUT he shows it and it is indeed a regular quarter (he was just INCREDIBLY Lucky). I start off well, which is good because I have to beat him twice, seeing as how I have lost, and he has not. So I get a good lock going and finally finish him off even with his precious Blow Back Dragon on the field (which he disposed of after I summoned Hamon and attacked it face up, to which he chained Limiter Removal KILLING my hard earned Hamon). Oh well. I still won.


Round 6 FINALS : Casey again.
I start out strong with lots of stall and a bit of burn. He gets out Barrel Dragon and will not let me keep a monster on the field, but he cannot attack because of stall cards. I play Swords of Conceiling light and turn his Barrel Dragon Facedown, allowing me a little repreave from his flipping onslaught. I end by setting a Stealth bird with him having 1500 LP left. With BD face down for 2 turns, I actually had a chance to end it here, that is until he played the Polymerization. He brought out Gatlin Dragon and started to grab his quarter. I only had Messenger and Gravity Bind out with Swords of Conceiling Light. He summoned Mechanical Chaser along with his Gatlin Dragon and I KNEW I was finished because of his lucky streak with flips. 2 Heads and this game will be swung in his favor probably for game. He flips, TAILS, he flips again, TAILS! and once more TAILS!!!!!!! I was over joyed! His luck had run out. He ends and I draw MY SAVIOR! LAVA GOLEM! I give a Lava Golem for his Gatlin and Mechanical Chaser! I flip Stealth Bird taking him to 500LP and end. He draws, hits the standby phase and takes 1000 damage for GAME!!!! Hamon fights back from an upsetting loss to the very person he beats in the finals. $5 and pack are MINE!

Props: Hamon wins on the second outing.
Mr. Freels for continuing to hold tournaments
All who participated.
Brody for helping with the tourney and for bringing Hamon Fodder.... I mean friends :)
Cons: Losing one round to a LUCKY FLIPPY McFLIPPERSON!

Prizes were $5 and a pack of my choice. Second got a pack. I got Lost Mellenium. Got squat and gave it away.

This proves, again, that the Hamon deck does in fact work. I hoped it would.

UNTIL NEXT WEEKEND! If you can't find Brookhaven on the map, don't worry we're there, just head south and if you hit Cuba, you've gone too far.
