The end of Day 1

September 26th, 2009

Day 1 is over, and 673 Duelists have been reduced to a final 16 competitors. Surprises abound today, but one result was not a surprise at all: Lightsworn are the most populous Deck to beat here in Orlando!

Day 2 competition will see six different Decks play off tomorrow morning: 2 Destiny Hero / Zombie Decks, 1 DARK “Sky Scourge Norleras” build, 1 Synchro Cat variant, 1 Twilight Deck, 2 Blackwing variants packing “Blackwing – Vayu the Emblem of Honor,” and a whopping 9 Lightsworn Decks will go head-to-head tomorrow! The numbers are in Lightsworn’s favor, but the other Decks in the Top 16 got to where they are tonight by defeating Lightsworn Duelist after Lightsworn Duelist, all day long. This one is anybody’s game.

Will this be the tournament when the Lightsworn finally take home the gold? Or will we see a different Deck beat the odds and win the title? Join us tomorrow morning at 10 AM to find out, as we prepare for Day 2 of SHONEN JUMP Championship Orlando!
