Round 10 Feature Match: George Weber versus Raymond Bauzon

May 12th, 2013

George Weber and Raymond Bauzon are both local New Jersey Duelists with 8-1 records. Weber is using an Evilswarm Deck that was recently made possible by Hidden Arsenal 7: Knight of Stars. Unlike the many of the Evilswarm Decks we featured earlier in the weekend, Weber has chosen to forego using Dinosaurs in his Decks, and is focused on an all-out Evilswarm strategy. His opponent, Raymond Bauzon, is using a Fire Fist Deck that includes Sabersaurus for access to Evolzar Laggia and Evolzar Dolkka. Fire Fists are generally tough for Evilswarms to defeat, given how easily Brotherhood of the Fire Fist – Bear destroys Evilswarm Ophion; but Weber is looking to score an upset in this Match and secure a 9-1 record. It’s time to Duel!
