Round 4 Feature Match: Benedikt Junk Versus Jaad Chehab

October 20th, 2012

German Duelist Benedikt Junk is undefeated in today’s tournament.  He’s playing Scraps, and his name is “Junk”.  And that’s amazing. 


But his opponent is Jaad Chehab from Waltham Massachusetts, who’s ironically a well-recognized Scrap Duelist himself!  Mirror Match?  Not even close!  Chehab is actually playing Evols this weekend.  I don’t know if we’ve ever seen this match-up before!


Junk’s opening hand was Compulsory Evacuation Device; Safe Zone; Scrap Chimera; Effect Veiler; King Tiger Wanghu; and Scrapstorm.  He Summoned King Tiger, then Set Compulsory and Zone. 


Chehab Set a monster, then Set a Spell or Trap.


Junk drew Pot of Duality, activating it to reveal Thunder King Rai-Oh, Torrential Tribute, and Maxx “C”.  He added Thunder King to his hand and attacked, slamming into Evoltile Westlo!  Junk took 200 Battle Damage and Chehab Special Summoned Evolsaur Diplo from his Deck, destroying Junk’s Compulsory Evacuation Device.  Junk Summoned Thunder King Rai-Oh in Main Phase 2.



Chehab blasted Junk’s Safe Zone with Mystical Space Typhoon, and Junk Chained it to target Diplo.  But Chehab activated  Forbidden Lance, letting Diplo survive!  Chehab activated Dark Hole, wiping everything from the field but Diplo, and then Normal Summoned another copy.  He stacked them both to Xyz Summon Evolzar Dolkka and made a direct attack for 2300 Battle Damage. 


Junk drew Dark Hole, and used it immediately to destroy Dolkka.


Chehab flipped Enemy Controller, Westlo, and Evolsaur Cerato with Pot of Duality, taking Westlo and Setting a monster.


Junk drew Bottomless Trap Hole and Set it.


Chehab destroyed it with Heavy Storm, but when he Flip Summoned Westlo, Junk negated its effect with Effect Veiler.  He Set another monster.


Junk drew Maxx “C” and Summoned Chimera, running over Westlo.  He Set Scrapstorm.


Chehab Flip Summoned another Westlo, and Junk Chained the effect of Maxx “C”.  Chehab Special Summoned Evolsaur Vulcano, and Junk drew Effect Veiler.  Chehab chose not to Special Summon with Vulcano’s ability, and Junk flipped Scrapstorm: he sent Scrap Beast to his Graveyard, then drew Dimensional Prison and destroyed his Chimera.  “I had to do that, because if you do Laggia it’s a dead card,” remarked Junk.  Chehab Normal Summoned Cerato, then Xyz Summoned Dolkka, giving Junk another draw.  Westlo, then Dolkka both made direct attacks.  Chehab Set a Spell or Trap.


Junk was down to 2500 Life Points and drew a second Scrap Beast.  He Set it, and Set Dimensional Prison.


Chehab turned Westlo to Defense Position and attacked into Dimensional Prison with Dolkka.  Chehab Set his last card to his back row.


Junk drew Thunder King Rai-Oh and tried to Summon it, drawing out Chehab’s Solemn Warning. 


Chehab passed.


Junk passed.


Chehab passed.


Junk drew and Summoned King Tiger Wanghu, then Flip Summoned Scrap Beast to Synchro Summon Stardust Dragon!  Chehab let the Summon go, but began bemoaning his station in the Duel audibly, almost seeming to be bluffing.  Wary of a Dimensional Prison, Junk passed without attacking.


Chehab shifted Westlo to Attack Position, and attacked.  He activated Enemy Controller to Tribute Westlo, then took Stardust Dragon to make a direct attack for game!  Chehab revealed that his Set card wasn’t Dimensional Prison: it was Bottomless Trap Hole.  He’d successfully bluffed his own weak backrow, not by pretending he had a strong card set, but by subtly making an exaggerated showing of his own weakness.  Very cool.


“Such a mis-read,” groaned Junk.  Both Duelists made quick use of their Side Decks before heading into Game 2.


Junk had two King Tiger Wanghu; Safe Zone; Dark Hole; Pot of Duality; and Scrapyard.  The latter got him Scrap Beast, and Pot of Duality revealed Compulsory Evacuation Device, Horn of the Phantom Beast, and another King Tiger: he took Horn, Set two cards to his back row, and Summoned King Tiger.


Chehad Set three cards to his Spell and Trap Card Zone and Set a monster.


Junk drew Soul Taker.  He flipped Safe Zone to protect his King Tiger, but Chehad Chained Compulsory Evacuation Device to bounce King Tiger back to his opponent’s hand.  Junk flipped Dark Hole to destroy Chehad’s Evolsaur Vulcano, then Normal Summoned another King Tiger.


Chehad Set a third Spell or Trap, then Set a monster.


Junk drew another Scrapyard and got Scrap Goblin this time.  He Summoned Scrap Beast, attacked with King Tiger, and Chehab flipped Fiendish Chain to lock it down.  Scrap Beast then attacked into Dimensional Prison.


Chehad passed.


Junk drew Compulsory Evacuation Device and Summoned another King Tiger, losing it to Chehad’s Bottomless Trap Hole.  He Set Compulsory.


Chehad passed.


Junk drew Maxx “C”.  He flipped Compulsory to take back his King Tiger, then Normal Summoned it to attack into another Vulcano: Junk flipped Horn of the Phantom Beast and drew Cyber Dragon!


Chehad activated Heavy Storm, and searched out Evoltile Westlo from his Deck with Evo-Diversity.  He Set a monster, then Set a Spell or Trap.


Junk drew Effect Veiler.  He passed.


Chehad Flip Summoned Westlo, and Junk Chained the effect of Maxx “C” to draw Mystical Space Typhoon when Chehad Special Summoned Evolsaur Cerato.  Cerato attacked to destroy King Tiger, getting Chehad another Westlo from his Deck. 



Junk drew Dimensional Prison and blew away Chehad’s Solemn Judgment with Mystical Space Typhoon.  He Special Summoned Cyber Dragon, then Normal Summoned Scrap Goblin to Synchro Summon Scrap Dragon!  The Dragon attacked to destroy Westlo, and Junk Set Soul Taker, destroying it and Cerato with Scrap Dragon.  He Set Dimensional Prison.


Chehad Set a monster, then Tributed it – Evoltile Najasho – to take control of Scrap Dragon with Enemy Controller!  Najasho let him Special Summon another Cerato, and he activated Scrap Dragon’s ability to target itself and Junk’s Set Dimensional Prison.  Effect Veiler negated it!  Chehad attacked with Scrap Dragon and Cerato, and Junk got his Scrap Dragon back in the End Phase!



Junk drew Bottomless Trap Hole.  He attacked over Cerato and Set Bottomless.


Chehad activated Pot of Duality, flipping Evo-Force, Dark Hole, and Diplo.  He took Dark Hole and activated it, destroying Scrap Dragon but letting Junk Special Summon Goblin.  Chehad Set a Spell or Trap, then Set a monster.


Junk drew Maxx “C” and passed.


Chehad Flip Summoned Westlo, and Junk Chained the effect of Maxx “C”.  Chehad Special Summoned a Diplo, letting Junk draw a card, and Diplo’s effect destroyed Dimensional Prison.  Junk fired back, chaining Bottomless Trap Hole to banish Diplo.  Chehad flipped Macro Cosmos, attacking to destroy Scrap Goblin.


Junk Summoned Scrap Beast to attack over Westlo, then Set a Spell or Trap.


Chehad Set a Spell or Trap.


Junk attacked for 1600 Battle Damage.  


Chehad Set another Spell or Trap.


Junk attacked him again, then Set another card to his back row.


Chehad Set a third Spell or Trap.


Junk attacked with Scrap Beast, and Chehad responded with Forbidden Lance to cut the damage.


Chehad activated Monster Reborn, trying to Special Summon Evoltile Najasho, but Junk stopped him with Solemn Warning.  He Set another Spell or Trap, but Junk attacked one more time with Scrap Beast to clinch the second Duel!


Benedikt Junk grinds out one of the toughest wins we’ve seen here today, finally beating Jaad Chehab with hit after hit from Scrap Beast!  By the time both Duelists were finished siding, just three minutes remained in the Match.


Chehad searched Evoltile Najasho with Evo-Diversity, then Set it and sacked it for Evo-Force.  That let him Special Summon two Evolsaur Cerato, and he stacked them to Xyz Summon Evolzar Laggia.  He Set four cards to his back row.



Junk’s hand was Torrential Tribute; Monster Reborn; Cyber Dragon; Heavy Storm; Safe Zone; and Scrab Goblin.  He Special Summoned Cyber Dragon in Defense Position, then Normal Summoned the Goblin to Synchro Summon Scrap Dragon: Chehad flipped Bottomless Trap Hole to banish it!  Junk Set two cards to his back row.


Chehad Set a fourth Spell or Trap, then attacked with Laggia.


Junk drew Scrap Beast and activated Monster Reborn, targeting Cyber Dragon and bringing it up in Defense Position.  Time was called, and Junk flipped Torrential Tribute, forcing Chehad to negate it with Laggia.  Junk activated Heavy Storm, but Chehad flipped Solemn Judgment to save his back row!  That looked like it might be the turning point…



Junk Normal Summoned his last card, Scrap Beast, and Chehad responded with Macro Cosmos.  Junk ended.


Chehad attacked Scrap Beast, but Junk flipped Safe Zone to keep it from being destroyed.  Chehad Set a monster.


Junk drew Thunder King Rai-Oh and turned Scrap Beast to Defense Position.  It was Turn 2 in time.


Chehad activated Evo-Diversity, getting Evoltile Westlo from his Deck.  Chehad had 4000 Life Points, while Junk had 4800.  Laggia attacked to destroy Cyber Dragon, and Chehad Set a monster.


Junk drew and Set a Spell or Trap.


Chehad Flip Summoned Evoltile Westlo, Special Summoning Evolsaur Vulcano to Special Summon Evolsaur Cerato!  He Xyz Summoned Photon Papilloperative and used its effect to target Junk’s Set monster: Thunder King!  Laggia attacked to destroy it, and Junk offered the handshake!


Jaad Chehad takes the Match with a clutch Photon Papilloperative play in time, just barely outplaying Benedikt Junk from his superior Life Point position, at the very last chance!
