Dragon Duel Round 4 Roundup

March 25th, 2012

We’re back for another round of Saturday’s Dragon Duel tournament! The number of undefeated Duelists is dwindling, and only the first place Duelist will receive a Blood Mefist prize card at the end of the tournament, so the competition is as fierce as ever. See how some of our top Duelists fared in this Round 4 Feature!


At Table 1, Leonard Megliola defeated Zachary Leverett 2-1 in a Dark World Mirror Match!

In Duel 1, Leverett opened up by activating Dark World Dealings, not knowing he was playing against a Dark World Deck, and Megliola discarded Sillva, Warlord of Dark World, getting its secondary effect and forcing Leverett to send 2 cards from his hand to the bottom of his Deck. Megliola made a big play with Fabled Raven on the next turn, discarding another Sillva, a Beige, and a Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World to win the Duel!

In Duel 2, Leverett took advantage of The Gates of Dark World to draw cards and activate the effects of his Dark World monsters. He eventually managed to score attacks with Grapha and Sillva to win the Duel!

In Duel 3, Leverett attacked into Megliola’s Morphing Jar with Trance Archfiend. Megliola discarded Snoww, Unlight of Dark World and Sillva, Warlord of Dark World, and Leverett discarded 5 cards, none of which were Dark World monsters! Already up on cards, Megliola Summoned a Fabled Raven and used it to discard more Dark World monsters that would lead him to victory.


At Table 2, Brian Ahle used his Dino Rabbit Deck to defeat Aden Garrabrant’s Inzektor Deck 2-0!

In Duel 1, Ahle went first and Summoned Rescue Rabbit. He banished it to Special Summon 2 Normal Dinosaurs and Xyz Summon Evolzar Laggia, and then Set 5 cards to his back row to protect Laggia. Garrabrant wasn’t able to defeat the well-protected Laggia.

Duel 2 started off slow, but Ahle eventually managed to deal some damage with attacks from Tour Guide From the Underworld and Sangan. He eventually combined his 2 Fiends to Xyz Summon Wind-Up Zenmaines, which ended up winning him the Duel with some backup from a Sabersaurus that helped Ahle clear his opponent’s field.


At Table 3, Jesse Kotton’s Dino Rabbit Deck defeated Justin Hink’s Gravekeeper’s Deck 2-1!

In Duel 1, Kotton won by Summoning an Evolzar Dolkka and shutting down Hink’s monster effects.

In Duel 2, Hink used Starlight Road against a Mirror Force and Summoned Stardust Dragon, backed by Solemn Judgment! Stardust Dragon won the Duel for Hink.

In Duel 3, Kotton opened up with Solemn Warning, Solemn Judgment, Starlight Road, a Kabazauls, a Sabersaurus, and a Rescue Rabbit. He Summoned Evolzar Laggia on his first turn by using Rescue Rabbit, and drew another Rescue Rabbit next turn, using it to make an Evolzar Dolkka. Protected by several Trap Cards, Kotton’s field was untouchable, allowing Kotton to take a quick win.


At Table 4, Galdino Chavez defeated Clay Hill 2-1 in an Inzektor Mirror Match!

In Duel 1, Clay Hill pulled off his Inzektor combos with Inzektor Dragonfly, Inzektor Centipede, and Inzektor Hornet to destroy Chavez’s cards and take the first win. Chavez tried to pull off the same combo, but was stopped each time. “He had Veiler, Warning, and Fiendish Chain,” Chavez told me.

Duel 2 came down to topdecks. Chavez eventually managed to Summon Number 39: Utopia by overlaying 2 Armageddon Knights, and when Hill tried to destroy it with Dark Hole, Chavez used Solemn Judgment to protect his Knight. Hill topdecked Inzektor Dragonfly and used its effect to try to equip it with a Hornet, but Chavez discarded Effect Veiler from his hand to protect his monster! Chavez proceeded to win with attacks from Number 39: Utopia.

In Duel 3, Chavez managed to use Chain Disappearance against Inzektor Dragonfly to banish all of Hill’s copies. Hill managed to Summon Dragonfly back with Leviair the Sea Dragon, and used it to destroy Chavez’s Mirror Force by equipping it with a Hornet and sending the Hornet to the Graveyard. Then Dragonfly’s effect Special Summoned Inzektor Centipede from the Deck, and Centipede equipped itself with a Hornet, which sent itself to the Graveyard to destroy another card. But Chavez drew Inzektor Dragonfly next turn and used it in conjunction with Inzektor Hornet to clear his opponent’s field and Summon another Centipede. Chavez eventually won with an attack from a Dragonfly equipped with an Inzektor Giga-Mantis.

Leonard Megliola, Brian Ahle, Jesse Kotton, and and Galdino Chavez are moving on with 4-0 records!
