Round 2 Feature Match: Lamar Curtis vs Braden Farrow

October 20th, 2012

Lamar Curtis made the trip here from Brooklyn, New York with his HERO Deck. His opponent is Braden Farrow, who came from Warwick, Rhode Island with Machina Gadgets and is playing in his first YCS event! Each Duelist has one win under his belt, but only one can move on undefeated!

Duel 1

Farrow began with a hand of Dark Bribe, Yellow Gadget , Mystical Space Typhoon, Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind, Starlight Road, and Machina Fortress. He played his Yellow Gadget and added Green Gadget to his hand. He Set Bribe and Road.

Curtis walked right into the Starlight Road by activating Heavy Storm! Farrow negated it and Special Summoned Stardust Dragon. Curtis Normal Summoned Thunder King Rai-Oh and destroyed Yellow Gadget , then Set three cards to his back row.

Farrow drew Dark Hole. He blew away Torrential Tribute with Mystical Space Typhoon, then Normal Summoned Gale. It cut Rai-Oh’s ATK in half, then destroyed it in battle. Stardust Dragon attacked directly. When Curtis tried to banish it with Dimensional Prison Farrow kept it safe with Dark Bribe.

Curtis Set a monster and a back row card.

Farrow drew Machina Gearframe. He Summoned it to search out Fortress. He tuned Gale to Gearframe for Karakuri Shogun mdl 00 “Burei”, and Curtis opted to forfeit the Duel before Farrow could see enough of his Deck to properly Side Deck!



Duel 2

Curtis started with Rai-Oh and a back row card.

Farrow’s hand was Gale, Rai-Oh, Gearframe, Mirror Force, Dark Bribe, and Effect Veiler. He Summoned Gale and halved Rai-Oh’s ATK, but Gale attacked into Curtis’s Dimensional Prison. He Set Mirror Force and Bribe.

Curtis had Rai-Oh attack directly and passed.

Farrow drew Fortress. He played his own Rai-Oh and destroyed Curtis’s, which was still halved from Gale’s effect.

Curtis passed.

Farrow drew another Rai-Oh and Summoned it. He attacked directly with one, and Curtis dropped his Gorz the Emissary of Darkness! It Summoned an Emissary of Darkness Token in defense position. In Main Phase 2, Farrow overlayed his Thunder Kings for Maestroke the Symphony Djinn.

Curtis sent Gorz to attack Maestroke, and Farrow played Mirror Force.

Farrow drew Pot of Avarice. He played Gearframe and searched out Fortress. Then, he discarded both of his Fortresses to Special Summon one of them back! Fortress destroyed the token, then Gearframe and Maestroke attacked directly. In Main Phase 2, he equipped Gearframe to Fortress.



Curtis Special Summoned Cyber Dragon! He fused it with Fortress to Summon Chimeratech Fortress Dragon! It attacked Maestroke, which detached a material to survive.

Farrow drew Red Gadget. He detached a material from Maestroke to turn Chimeratech Fortress Dragon face-down, then Normal Summoned Red Gadget. He activated its effect, and Curtis flipped Torrential Tribute. Farrow negated that with Dark Bribe! He played Pot of Avarice to draw Thunder King Rai-Oh and Effect Veiler. Red Gadget destroyed Chimeratech (now with 0 DEF) and Maestroke attacked directly to end the Match!

Braden Farrow moves ahead with Machina Gadgets after Lamar Curtis can’t draw a single HERO monster!
