Dang started off with Rescue Rabbit! It brought 2 Kabazauls to the field. Kabazauls destroyed Abysslinde, which brought Mermail Abyssleed to the field. In Main Phase 2, Dang stacked his sneezing hipposauruses for Evolzar Laggia, then Set three back row cards.

Leverett drew Mystical Space Typhoon. He discarded Dragoons for Abyssteus in defense position. Dragoons and Abyssteus gave him Mermail Abyssmegalo and Mermail Abysspike, respectively. He activated Abyssmegalo next, discarding Abyssteus and Abyssgunde. Abyssmegalo added squall to Leverett’s hand, then Abyssgunde Special Summoned Abyssteus, and Dang played Torrential Tribute! Leverett destroyed Dang’s Bottomless Trap Hole using Mystical Space Typhoon, then revived Abyssmegalo with Monster Reborn. It attacked directly, and Leverett Set Abyss-squall.

Dang shot back with Tour Guide From the Underworld! He brought another Guide to the field, then Xyz Summoned Leviair the Sea Dragon! Its effect let him return his Rescue Rabbit to the field, and he banished it for 2 Sabersauruses. He used those for the Xyz Summon of another Laggia, and Set a second and third back row card.

Leverett drew Dark Hole. He sent Abyssmegalo to attack Laggia, but it was halted by Fiendish Chain. Leverett passed.

Dang used Leviair again to bring Rabbit back again, then played Jurrac Guaiba. He stacked Guaiba with Rabbit, and played Gagaga Cowboy! It used its effect, taking down Abyssmegalo in battle. Leviair and Laggia struck next, and Leverett had 3200 left.

He drew Abyssmegalo on his turn. He played Abyss-squall, and Dang chose not to negate it with Laggia. Leverett Special Summoned Abysslinde, Abyssteus, and Abyssleed, and Dang used Bottomless Trap Hole to banish them all! He Normal Summoned Abysspike, and Dang negated that. But when he tried his last ditch move of Dark Hole, Dang had Solemn Judgment! Next turn, Dang’s monsters finished Leverett off!

Shivum Dang sets up an impenetrable field, shutting down Ben Leverett’s every attempt to fight back! Ben will have to win two in a row if he wants to be today’s champion.

Leverett drew Torrential Tribute very dramatically. He discarded both Marksmen for Abyssmegalo. It was Special Summoned. Dang Chained both of his face-down cards: Book of Moon and Compulsory Evacuation Device. Abyssleed was returned to the hand, and Abyssmegalo went face-down. Abyssmegalo’s effect still gave Leverett a free copy of Abyss-sphere. He discarded Abyssleed for Abyssteus, adding Abysspike to his hand. He played Salvage to get back both Marksmen and Summoned one. Abyssteus collided with Kabazauls, then Marksman hit directly. That brought out Atlantean Dragoons, which did not attack. Leverett Set Torrential Tribute and Abyss-sphere.

Dang played Mystical Space Typhoon, but Leverett Chained the targeted Abyss-sphere! It brought out Abysslinde, which was destroyed to bring out Abyssmegalo. Dang continued with a Jurrac Guaiba. It destroyed Marksman in battle, bringing a second Guaiba to the field. He stacked his dinosaurs for Number 39: Utopia, and Set a back row card.

Leverett drew Pot of Avarice. He played Abysspike, discarding Marksman to add another Marksman to his hand. The discarded Marksman targeted Dang’s Set card, Forbidden Dress, which he Chained to weaken Abyssmegalo. Leverett flipped up his other Abyssmegalo, and stacked them both for Number 11: Big Eye! Big Eye swiped Utopia. Abysspike, Dragoons, and Utopia dropped Dang to 700 Life Points. In Main Phase 2, Leverett Xyz Summoned Bahamut Shark! He used its effect, detaching Dragoons, and Special Summoned Mermail Abysstrite in defense position. Dragoons added Diva to Leverett’s hand.

Dang had only two cards. He Set one to each zone.

Leverett drew another Diva. He used Big Eye to steal the face-down monster, and Dang conceded!
