I don’t have a lot of time to discuss copious amounts of:
- Team Kills
- and Top decks
So with all that needless build-up, let’s get started. (Apologies in advance for spelling/grammar errors)
Normal School Locals 10/14/16
Round 1: Vs Ghostrick Artifacts (Ghostfacts)
I loaned my buddy the artifacts so his Ghostrick deck could have a better Majespecter match-up. Artifacts however do nothing against Kozmo and failed to prevent me easily taking game 1.
Game 2 he opened a horrific brick that I’ll do my best to show using my sub-par artistic talent and bulk cards lying around.
He topdecked Allure and blind-allured into Terrorop and a trap losing both. It wasn’t pretty.
Round 2 Vs Yosenju Kaiju
Game 1 I throw up Cyber Dragon Infinity + Tin with a Ship loaded, but the Kaiju easily wreck me DESPITE HIM FORGETTING TO DROP MAXX C ON MY INSTANT FUSION. Game 2 his only Yosenju gets solemned and Farmgirl wins me the game when my opponent (with multiple tops under his belt) forget he had Speedroid Menko. Game 3 and hopefully this offers pity for him…
His opening 6 cards are these…
I keep attacking him with Honest until he dies. He never draws into a playable card…
I may have been hard on him for his misplays, but now the guy has been triggered by the number 6 ever since. Feels bad man.
Round 3: Vs Cyber Angel Star Seraph Herald
So when our far more legit friend appeared from the neighboring college we were happy when he played against our local Blue Eyes star round 1. HOWEVER, after we saw the nightmare of Herald + insane card advantage all of our hope soon vanished. Blue Eyes lost to this in under 20 minutes both players not seeing a 3rd turn…
So game 1 I am knocked to 100 life due to Manju and Herald keeping my pilots from ever making themselves relevant. I set Ghost Ogre and Vanity’s. I flip Vanity’s at the one instance he somehow has no fairy in hand. His Manju, Herald and Gale Dogra are stalled by my 2 Strawmen and Ghost Ogre until he realizes he has no outs left in deck and surrenders.
So games 2 and 3 I opened all monsters…
Game 2 he assembled his combo (Alongside everyone’s favorite Archlord Kristiya), so I didn’t get to play.
Game 3 I put Dark Destroyer out in response to his first ritual spell, but I never saw him using Star Seraph Stick and Chair to make Utopia S39 into Utopia the Lightning to run over my destroyer and defeat me.
And so ended our Solemn Strike tournament. I can safely say whenever you think you’ve found the most frustrating Yugioh deck, there’s another still to come…
So earlier today my the same Blue Eyes and Yosenju Kaiju player got me to join them in hitting up the nearest Yugioh OTS store (outside of Philly of course). Thus a new not local locals occurred.
A.U. Local Tournament 10/15/16
Round 1: Vs the Gosh Darn Yugi’s Legendary Deck Yugi deck
My opponent set a monster and passed.
I normal summon Farmgirl and attack to reveal Magician’s Valkyrie…
I set Vanity’s and do something mulliganing with Kozmotown.
He normal summons Breaker, the Magical Warrior. I drop Dark Destroyer in response to its effect to add a counter to destroy it.
I add back Farmgirl and attack him with it.
He drops Kuriboh…
I make Cyber Dragon Infinity in the second main phase.
He normal summons Skilled Dark Magician and attacks my Farmgirl.
I absorb Skilled Dark and attack him for game.
Game 2 he opens the exact same cards.
I make Pleiades instead of Infinity, but the result is the exact same…
Round 2: Vs Masked Heroes
I played against the same guy who single-handedly sullied my last regional experience by being ridiculously rude during our match.
Game 1 he drops Dark Law + Rafflesia, but I use Raigeki to crush them both. He never recovers and I take the game.
Game 2 I sided to go second and he makes me go first. I put out a turn one Cyber Dragon Infinity, but he Kaiju’s it and defeats me on his 2nd turn.
Game 3 I lose to Phantom Knight Wings protecting his Masked Hero Acid after we both lose all of our resources.
Round 3 Vs Dark Magician
I’m really really bad.
I lost all respect for myself after this game.
I misplayed amazingly and still somehow won due to my opponent both not knowing how his cards worked or how to pressure at all.
So I had 1900 life. I normal Soartrooper, reanimate a 2nd one from my grave. Realize I have like no life. Etele into Farmgirl, make Breaksword to break my Kozmotown and his Dark Magic Circle. Search my deck only to realize I put Dark Destroyer in grave turn 1 and that I can’t run over his 2800 Magician of Dark Chaos (with no spells ever placed in his grave). I put Dark Lady in defense and pass. Dark Chaos runs over Breaksword taking me to 100.
I topdeck raigeki for the Chaos, but fear something attacking Dark Lady for game so I stay in defense and set tincan. He passes.
I topdeck Kozmojo and attack with Lady, and pass. He sets Eternal Soul, attacks with Magician Rod and I Kozmojo it.
I topdeck call of the haunted and set it. He activates Eternal Soul in his main phase, but I pop it with Slipridder destroying his board. I swing for game on the next turn.
I didn’t deserve this…
Game 2 I set up turn 1 Dark Destroyer + Forerunner + Vanity’s for his Magician’s Navigation. Oh yeah he forgot to use that card’s 2nd effect to goof my Kozmojo or Call of the Haunted…
Anyway he lost on the 3rd turn.
I rematch the dang Masked Hero guy. I was beyond done with this dude, but I accepted reality offering me yet another chance to try and defeat him.
Game 1 I win off a Dark Destroyer popping Dark Law only to get hit by Rafflesia’s Floodgate Traphole. However from there I win off Farmgirl direct attacks.
Game 2 I’m forced to go first and open MST x2, Call of the Haunted, Storming and Slipridder. He twin twisters the Storming Mirror Force and then kills him.
Game 3 I lose my Dark Destroyer to Utopia the Lightning. I manage to wreck his Lightning and Castel with Storming Mirror Force. However he recovers and wipes my whole board. I have no cards on field or in hand. However…
topdeck Tincan, adding Forerunner and next turn drawing Instant Fusion to Castel away his defending Masked Hero Acid for game.
The heart of the cards were literally on my side. I against didn’t deserve this.
My last opponent and I rolled a die for 1st place since we were fighting over 1 pack. Also they didn’t have any OTS packs so that was great…
Thus, I got 2nd place winning 5 packs.
Anyway, I pulled a Solitaire which is $5, which was the entrance fee.
Breaking even at its finest.
I mess 2013 yugioh where games didn’t end by turn 3. I mess yugioh that seemed fair. Also once Toadally Awesome comes out next yet (as the Hero guy pointed out way more than once) the Masked Hero deck would actually become meta and thus more unfair turn 1 lockout boards with exist.
I’m legitimately considering going back to MTG Standard.
I say after buying a box of Star Pack 2014 for the lolz and pre-ordering an Invasion of Vengeance box to get said Toad…
I totally know what I’m doing I swear…
Thanks for reading this nonsense. Remember to try and learn from your misplays folks…
