Round 1: Cordero Spencer vs. Khiem Huynh

May 19th, 2012

Khiem Huynh, from Ellicott City, Maryland, is Dueling against Cordero Spencer from Chicago, Illinois in our Round 1 Feature Match! Huynh is using a Dragon Deck, which Summons big monsters like Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and Lightpulsar Dragon. Spencer is using a LIGHT Deck that Summons equally big Lightrays. He’s using 2 copies each of the new Lightray Diabolos, Lightray Gearfried, and Lightray Daedalus from Galactic Overload. This should be an exciting Match full of big monsters!

Huynh Set a card to each zone and passed.

Spencer drew and Summoned Ehren, Lightsworn Monk, and Huynh negated its effect with Effect Veiler! He attacked Huynh’s face-down monster with Jain. It was a Ryko, and its effect destroyed Ehren and sent Book of Moon and 2 copies of Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress from the top of Huynh’s Deck to his Graveyard.

Cordero opened up with Heavy Storm, Monster Reincarnation, Card Trooper, Gorz the Emissary of Darkness, Effect Veiler, and Lightray Diabolos. He activated Heavy Storm to destroy Huynh’s face-down Bottomless Trap Hole and then Normal Summoned Card Trooper. He activated its effect by sending Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning and 2 copies of Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress from the top of his Deck to his Graveyard, and Huynh discarded Effect Veiler to negate Card Trooper’s effect so that it wouldn’t gain ATK.

He banished Lyla and Gorz from his Graveyard to Summon Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning. Then he attacked Eclipse Wyvern with Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning to destroy the Wyvern and drop Huynh down to 6600 Life Points.

Huynh drew Future Fusion next turn! He activated it to send Eclipse Wyvern, Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, and 2 Divine Dragon Apocralyphs from his Deck to his Graveyard. Then he used his Wyvern’s effect to banish Dark Armed Dragon from his Deck.

Spencer drew another Electric Virus next turn. He attacked and destroyed Catastor with Gorz, and then attacked directly with his Token to bring Huynh down to 5300 Life Points. He Set a Book of Moon before passing.

[Electric Virus is a great card to Side Deck against Dragons, because it can take control of an opponent’s strongest Dragon.]

Then he banished his Lightpulsar Dragon to Summon Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and used its effect to Special Summon another Lightpulsar Dragon from his hand. Lightpulsar Dragon attacked and destroyed Spencer’s Token, and then Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon attacked directly.

Huynh used D.D. Crow to banish Gorz from Spencer’s Graveyard, but it was all over for Huynh on Spencer’s next turn! Spencer discarded 2 copies of Electric Virus and attacked directly with Lightpulsar Dragon and Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, eliminating the last 5300 Life Points that Huynh had!
