Top 16 Feature Match: Adam Belohradsky versus Julian Wong

November 19th, 2012

Only sixteen Duelists remain. Among them, only three Agent players remain, and two of them are playing against each other right now! Adam Belohradsky is here from Stockton, CA, while Julian is from nearby Vancouver, BC. Only one of these Agent Decks will be moving on!

Wong started with a Set monster.

Belohradsky had Heavy Storm, 2 Mystical Shine Balls, Master Hyperion, Call of the Haunted, and Herald of Orange Light. He Set Heavy Storm.

Wong blew it away with Mystical Space Typhoon next turn! He Normal Summoned The Agent of Mystery – Earth, and Belohradsky negated it with Herald, pitching a Shine Ball. Wong Flip Summoned Spirit Reaper, and hit directly, knocking out Hyperion.

Belohradsky drew his third Shine Ball! He Set Call of the Haunted, but when Wong destroyed it with another Typhoon next turn, Belohradsky picked up his cards!

Julian Wong quickly picks apart a rough hand of 3 Shine Balls using Spirit Reaper and Mystical Space Typhoon! Both Duelists moved to their Side Decks.

Duel 2

Belohradsky got a much kinder hand of Dark Hole, Bottomless Trap Hole, Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning, Mystical Shine Ball, and 2 The Agent of Creation – Venus. He Normal Summoned Venus. He activated it once for a Shine Ball, but when he activated it again, Wong played Maxx “C”! Belohradsky continued, Xyz Summoning Gachi Gachi Gantetsu. He Set Bottomless Trap Hole.

Wong Normal Summoned Thunder King Rai-Oh. He Set a back row card.

Belohradsky drew Sangan. He Normal Summoned Venus, and one of them attacked, but Wong activated Gozen Match! If Belohradsky chose to keep his LIGHT monsters, he’d lose the boost from Gachi Gachi, so his attacking Venus would be destroyed anyway. He had no good option but to keep Gachi Gachi.

Wong Normal Summoned Venus and Belohradsky banished it with Bottomless Trap Hole.

Belohradsky drew Torrential Tribute. He activated Dark Hole, destroying Rai-Oh and keeping Gachi Gachi around with its effect. He Set Torrential Tribute.

Wong Normal Summoned Shine Ball and played Creature Swap! He traded the Shine Ball for Gachi Gachi.

Belohradsky drew Master Hyperion. He Set Sangan and turned Shine Ball to defense position.

Wong attacked Shine Ball with Gachi Gachi, then Set a monster.

Belohradsky drew Honest. He Flip Summoned Sangan and played Torrential Tribute! He destroyed his own Sangan as well as his opponent’s, and Wong detached a material from Gachi Gachi. Wong’s Sangan got him The Agent of Mystery – Earth, Belohradsky’s got him Herald of Orange Light. Belohradsky continued by banishing Sangan and Shine Ball for Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning, then banished Venus for Hyperion! Black Luster attacked Gachi Gachi, attacked again directly. Wong had Tragoedia, but Belohradsky’s Herald said no to that. Without Tragoedia to defend him, Wong was done for!

Adam Belohradsky evens the score, and we’re going to a third Duel!

“I didn’t think you had Black Luster Soldier AND Hyperion. I was going to do something similar next turn!” Wong laughed.

Duel 3

Wong played Thunder King Rai-Oh and a back row.

Belohradsky had 2 Hyperion, Herald of Orange Light, Dark Hole, Dimensional Prison, and The Agent of Mystery – Earth. He destroyed Rai-Oh with Dark Hole, then played Earth to get Venus from his Deck. He attacked directly and Set Prison.

Wong played Venus and activated its effect. Belohradsky thought a bit before negating it with Herald, discarding a Hyperion.

Belohradsky drew Mystical Space Typhoon and used it on Wong’s Gozen Match. He played Venus, used its effect, and Wong negated it with Effect Veiler. Earth and Venus attacked directly. Wong had 3900 Life Points, Belohradsky had 7500. In Main Phase 2, Belohradsky Synchro Summoned Ally of Justice Catastor.

Wong Normal Summoned Tour Guide From the Underworld. He thought for a while, then finally brought out Sangan. He stacked his Fiends to Xyz Summon Number 17: Leviathan Dragon. He detached Sangan from it to boost its ATK by 500, then banished Sangan and Veiler for Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning! Black Luster Soldier banished Catastor, then Leviathan Dragon attacked directly.

Belohradsky drew Venus, and Wong played Maxx “C” in the Draw Phase. Belohradsky Normal Summoned Venus anyway, using its effect twice for 2 Mystical Shine Balls in attack position. He banished Venus from his Graveyard to Special Summon Hyperion, then banished Hyperion from his Graveyard for the on-field Hyperion to destroy Black Luster Soldier. He Xyz Summoned Daigusto Phoenix with his 2 Shine Balls, and used its effect on itself. Hyperion destroyed Leviathan Dragon in battle, and Wong played Tragoedia! Belohradsky had no way through Tragoedia with its 2400 DEF.

Wong used Tragoedia’s effect next turn, discarding Archlord Kristya to steal Hyperion! Hyperion destroyed Dimensional Prison by banishing Venus. He revealed his hand, saying “I have game, I just have to do this in the most epic way possible!” He had Reborn, Tragoedia, Spirit Reaper, and Honest.

He decided to use Reborn on Black Luster Soldier, Normal Summon Reaper, make Trag Level 3, Xyz Summon Leviair, have that bring back Sangan. Black Luster attacked Venus and Wong discarded Honest. Still boosted by Honest, Black Luster Soldier attacked Daigust Phoenix to finish the Match!

Julian Wong moves ahead with Agents!
