November 18th, 2012

11-year-old Asher Thompson is here from Shoreline, WA. He’s brought a Dragon Deck today, emphasizing the Hieratics! His opponent is 11-year-old Joon Chong, from Federal Way, WA, and came here with his HERO Deck.

Joon began with Pot of Duality, revealing Elemental HERO Bubbleman and 2 Mystical Space Typhoons. He took Bubbleman. Next, he used Reinforcement of the Army to add Elemental HERO Stratos to his hand. He Summoned Stratos, and it added Elemental HERO Neos Alius to his hand. He Set a back row.

Asher began with Darkflare Dragon, Royal Decree, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, Tour Guide From the Underworld, Hieratic Seal of Convocation, and Lightpulsar Dragon. He played Seal of Convocation to add Hieratic Dragon of Tefnuit to his hand. He Special Summoned it, then banished it to Special Summon REDMD from his hand. He Normal Summoned Tour Guide to Special Summon another copy from his Deck, then Set Decree. He stacked the Tour Guides for Leviair the Sea Dragon. REDMD destroyed Stratos, then Leviair attacked directly.

Joon played Night Beam to destroy Decree! Next, he swiped Leviair with Mind Control. He Normal Summoned Alius, Set 2 back row, then Special Summoned Bubbleman. He stacked Bubbleman and Neos Alius for Heroic Champion – Excalibur! He detached both materials to boost its ATK, then played Call of the Haunted on Stratos! That gave him Bubbleman, which he Special Summoned. He stacked Stratos and Bubbleman for Blade Armor Ninja! He detached Stratos from it so it could attack twice. Excalibur took down REDMD, then Blade Armor Ninja attacked directly twice. In the End Phase, Leviair returned to Asher.

Asher drew Effect Veiler. HeTributed Leviair for Lightpulsar Dragon, but Joon banished it with Bottomless Trap Hole!

Joon used Blade Armor Ninja’s effect again, then had his Ninja and Excalibur finish Asher off!
