June 18th, 2011

Both of these Duelists have 5-1 records headed into Round 7, and the winner of this Match would still be on-track to the Top 32 tomorrow. Henry Williams is playing Tengu Synchro, while Reilly is running a similar Deck packed with “T.G.” monsters. This one could be really interesting, and both Duelists were eager to start the Match!

Williams opened the Match by Setting a monster, then Set a Spell or Trap.

Reilly opened with a hand of Spore, Lonefire Blossom, Mind Control, Mirror Force, Dimensional Prison, and Smashing Ground. He activated Mind Control, taking and Flip Summoning Williams’ Ryko to destroy his Mystical Space Typhoon. Ryko’s effect sent T.G. Warwolf, T.G. Striker, and T.G. Rush Rhino to the Graveyard. Reilly Summoned Lonefire Blossom, and Tributed it to Special Summon another from his Deck. He Tributed that to Special Summon Dandylion, and attacked with Dandylion. He Set Dimensional Prison.

He Tributed it to Special Summon 1 of his own, then Tributed that for another. He Tributed that to Special Summon Dandylion, and Tributed it for Caius the Shadow Monarch!

Reilly drew Monster Reborn. He activated it to Special Summon T.G. Rush Rhino, and then banished Lonefire Blossom to Special Summon Spore. When it hit the field, Williams activated Effect Veiler’s ability to negate Spore’s effect, trying to reduce Spore’s Level to 1 again, but it didn’t work. Effect Veiler can’t reduce Spore’s Level, and the Veiler was wasted.

He Tuned Spore to Rush Rhino for Stardust Dragon, then Set Warning and Mirror Force.

He Special Summoned Glow-Up Bulb by sending Debris Dragon off the top of his Deck to his Graveyard, then Tributed Ryko to Summon Cyber Dragon! He Tuned everything together for Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier, banished Stardust Dragon, T.G. Striker, and Glow-Up Bulb, and got Debris Dragon from his Deck with Sangan. Trishula made a direct attack, and Reilly’s next topdeck – T.G. Warwolf – couldn’t help him.
