Dragon Duel Round 5 Roundup

March 25th, 2012

There were 4 undefeated Duelists at the start of Round 5, but only 2 remained when it was over. Check out what happened at the Top 4 tables in Round 5!.

At Table 1 (Undefeated Table), Brian Ahle defeated Jesse Kotton 2-0 in a Dino Rabbit Mirror Match!

In Duel 1, Ahle Summoned Rescue Rabbit first turn to make Evolzar Laggia, followed by a second turn Tour Guide into Leviair the Sea Dragon. Leviair Special Summoned Rescue Rabbit back from the Banished Zone, allowing Ahle to Xyz Summon Evolzar Dolkka with solid back rows to protect his monsters. Kotton couldn’t defeat them.

In Duel 2, Kotton took an early lead, dominating with Evolzar Dolkka, Evolzar Laggia (without Xyz Material), and a Tour Guide From the Underworld on the field, when he activated Heavy Storm to try to destroy Ahle’s 3 back rows, and Ahle flipped Starlight Road! The Stardust Dragon that Ahle Summoned was too big for Kotton to destroy without using an in-hand Dark Hole. Ahle turned the Duel around from there with some help from Number 39: Utopia and Forbidden Lance.


At Table 2 (Undefeated Table), Galdino Chavez used his Inzektor Deck to defeat Leonard Megliola Dark World Deck 2-1!

In Duel 1, Chavez was able to pull off his Inzektor combos involving Inzektor Hornet, Inzektor Dragonfly, and Inzektor Centipede to destroy Megliola’s on-field cards before winning the Duel with Number 30: Acid Golem.

In Duel 2, Chavez had a weak hand and Megliola was able to use The Gates of Dark World and Fabled Raven to trigger the effects of his Dark World monsters. Then he Special Summoned 2 Graphas to the field to seal the Duel.

In Duel 3, Chavez used his Inzektors to destroy Megliola’s field, including his face-down Morphing Jar. Megliola was unable to recover.


At Table 3, Steven Rorabaugh’s Wind-Up Deck defeated Lucas Chau’s Dino Rabbit Deck 2-1!

In Duel 1, Chau Summoned Laggia and Dolkka, but Rorabaugh still managed to win. Laggia negated a Smashing Ground, and Rorabaugh Summoned a Wind-Up Rat and attempted to Special Summon 3 copies of Wind-Up Shark with 3 Wind-Up Factories face-up. Dolkka could only negate 2 Sharks, and the third Shark was enough to set up the Xyz Summon that Rorabaugh needed to take the Duel!

In Duel 2, Chau kept control of the Duel with Solemn Warnings by negating the Summons of Wind-Up Hunter and Wind-Up Magician. He eventually won the Duel by attacking with Xyz Monsters.

In Duel 3, Rorabaugh used Adreus to help clear Chau’s field and win the Duel.


At Table 4, Christian Patino’s Chaos Dragon Deck defeated Samuel Avilez’s Fairy Deck 2-1!

In Duel 1, Patino used Future Fusion to send a bunch of Dragons from his Deck to his Graveyard and win the Duel.

In Duel 2, Avilez stopped Future Fusion by Chaining Mystical Space Typhoon. Without a backup plan to his Future Fusion, Patino was quickly defeated.

Duel 3 played out like the first Duel of the Match. Patino once again used Future Fusion to help him swarm the field with monsters and make quick work of Avilez.

Brian Ahle, Galdino Chavez, Steven Rorabaugh, and Christian Patino won their Round 5 Matches, with the first 2 of these 4 Duelists advancing undefeated in the tournament!
