Round 8 Feature Match: Alfredo Cardona vs Frederick De la Cruz

November 18th, 2012

Frederick De la Cruz is from nearby Puyallup, WA. Alfredo Cardona travelled a bit more, coming from Tijuana, Mexico! This is the final round of the day, so a win here is important to have a good shot at the Top 32 tomorrow!

Cardona began the final round of the day with Rescue Rabbit, Tour Guide From the Underworld, Bottomless Trap Hole, Starlight Road, Sabersaurus, and Forbidden Lance. He Normal Summoned Rabbit and banished it to Special Summon 2 Kabazauls. He stacked the hippos to Xyz Summon Evolzar Laggia, then Set Lance, Road, and Bottomless Trap Hole. A powerful opening!

De la Cruz Set a monster.

Cardona drew Solemn Judgment. He Normal Summoned Tour Guide From the Underworld, using it to Special Summon Night Assailant. He stacked his Fiends to Xyz Summon Leviair the Sea Dragon, detaching Assailant to bring back Rabbit. He banished that for 2 Sabersauruses, then Xyz Summoned Evolzar Dolkka! Dolkka attacked De la Cruz’s face-down Genex Controller. Leviair attacked directly, as did Laggia. Cardona Set Solemn Judgment to end.

De la Cruz discarded Atlantean Dragoons and Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord to Special Summon Mermail Abyssmegalo. Cardona negated Abyssmegalo with Dolkka, then also negated Dragoons. De la Cruz Summoned Genex Undine next, and Laggia negated its Summon.

Cardona drew Compulsory Evacuation Device. He used Leviair to bring back Rabbit once more, then Normal Summoned Sabersaurus. Sabersaurus attacked directly, and De la Cruz played his Gorz the Emissary of Darkness! Dolkka destroyed the token. In Main Phase 2, he stacked Sabersaurus and Rabbit for Abyss Dweller, then Set Compulsory Evacuation Device.

De la Cruz passed with nothing but Gorz.

Cardona drew Cardcar D. He used Compulsory Evacuation Device to return Gorz to the hand, then attacked directly for the win!

Alfredo Cardona leads with an unbreakable field of Laggia, Dolkka, Starlight Road, Solemn Judgment, and more! There was just no way for De la Cruz to fight through it.
