August 7th, 2010

Brandon Miotke has won several Dragon Duel tournaments, and has received plenty of Feature Matches as a result, but today is his first YCS Feature Match! Today we’ll see him Duel against Chris Calton in an X-Saber mirror match. Like his father before him at YCS Chicago, Miotke is playing a Deck that’s teched with Saber Slash and XX-Saber Emmersblades.

Miotke opened the Match with a hand of Mystical Space Typhoon, 2 Saber Slashes, XX-Saber Emmersblade, Torrential Tribute, and X-Saber Airbellum. He Set Emmersblade, Set Mystical Space Typhoon, Set Torrential Tribute, and ended.

Calton activated Mystical Space Typhoon, destroying Miotke’s Torrential Tribute. He Summoned Doomcaliber Knight, attacked Emmersblade, and both monsters were sent to the Graveyard due to Doomcaliber Knight’s effect. Calton Set Torrential Tribute and lost it to Miotke’s own Mystical Space Typhoon in the End Phase.

Miotke drew XX-Saber Boggart Knight, and Normal Summoned it to Special Summon X-Saber Airbellum. Airbellum attacked to force Calton to discard Gravekeeper’s Spy, then Boggart Knight made a direct attack for 1900 Battle Damage. Miotke ended, with Calton down to 4500 Life Points.

Calton activated Brain Control, took Boggart Knight, and Summoned his own Airbellum. Boggart Knight attacked Miotke’s Airbellum, Calton’s made a direct attack, and Miotke discarded one of his two Saber Slashes. Calton Set a Spell or Trap and Synchro Summoned X-Saber Urbellum.
