Round 3 Feature Match: Richard Frailley versus Christian Georges

February 1st, 2014

Kentucky’s Richard Frailley is Dueling against New York’s Christian Georges in this Round 3 Feature Match! Frailley is using a Synchro-heavy Deck that combines Tuners like Spore and Junk Synchron with expendable monsters like White Dragon Wyverburster and Black Dragon Collapserpent to flood the field with Synchro monsters. Will this unconventional strategy hold up against Georges’s Fire Fist Deck? It’s time to Duel!

Georges started off Duel 1 by activating Upstart Goblin to give Frailley 1000 Life Points and draw a card. Next, he Summoned Brotherhood of the Fire Fist – Bear and Set 2 cards to his back row.

Next, he activated Enemy Controller, Tributing his Maxx “C” to try to take control of Bear; but Georges flipped Forbidden Lance to make his Bear unaffected by all Spells and Traps!

 

Georges attacked with Bear next turn, but Frailley activated Mirror Force to destroy it! Georges Summoned Wolfbark in Main Phase 2 and used its effect to Special Summon Bear from his Graveyard. He combined Wolfbark with Bear to Xyz Summon Brotherhood of the Fire Fist – Tiger King and used Tiger King’s effect to Set Fire Formation – Tenki from his Deck. He detached an Xyz Material from Tiger King to activate its effect and then flipped Tenki to add Wolfbark from his Deck to his hand. Finally, he Set a card to his back row before ending his turn.

 

Frailley drew Dark Hole and then Set Enemy Controller.

 

Georges Summoned Cardcar D and Tributed it to draw 2 cards and end his turn.

 

Frailley drew Card Trooper and Summoned it. He activated its effect to send Thunder King Rai-Oh, Tour Guide From the Underworld, and Effect Veiler from the top of his Deck to his Graveyard and gain 1500 ATK, and then flipped Enemy Controller to Tribute Spore and take control of Tiger King. Card Trooper and Tiger King attacked Georges directly, dropping Georges down to 3900 Life Points. Frailley detached an Xyz Material from Tiger King to activate its effect and then ended his turn.

 

Georges Summoned Brotherhood of the Fire Fist – Gorilla and sent his Tenki to the Graveyard to try to destroy Frailley’s face-down Enemy Controller with Gorilla’s effect; but Frailley Chained the Enemy Controller to switch Gorilla into Defense Position. Georges attacked Card Trooper with his Tiger King, destroying it in battle and allowing Frailley to draw a card.

 

Frailley Set Mirror Force and Call of the Haunted before passing back to Georges.

 

Georges activated Pot of Duality; but Frailley Chained Call of the Haunted to Special Summon Thunder King Rai-Oh, preventing Georges from using the effect of Pot of Duality. Next, Georges attacked Rai-Oh with Tiger King, and Frailley flipped Mirror Force to destroy both of Georges’s monsters. In Main Phase 2, Georges activated Fiendish Chain to negate Rai-Oh’s effect, and activated Fire Formation – Tenki to add Wolfbark from his Deck to his hand. He Summoned Bear and used Bear’s effect to send Tenki to the Graveyard and destroy Rai-Oh.

 

Frailley drew Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter next turn and Set it.

 

Georges activated Fire Formation – Tensu and used its effect to Normal Summon Coach Soldier Wolfbark. Next, he sent Tensu to the Graveyard to destroy Ryko with Bear’s effect, and attacked directly with Bear and Wolfbark. Georges Set Fire Formation – Gyokkou with Bear’s effect and then used Wolfbark’s effect to Special Summon Gorilla from his Graveyard. He combined Bear with Gorilla to Special Summon Brotherhood of the Fire Fist – Cardinal and then detached both Xyz Materials from Cardinal to return Tenki and Bear into his own Deck, and Tour Guide and Spore to Frailley’s Deck.

 

Frailley drew Call of the Haunted next turn. He activated Dark Hole to clear the field and then Set Call of the Haunted.

 

Georges activated Gyokkou to pin down Frailley’s Call of the Haunted and then Normal Summoned Wolfbark. He activated its effect to Special Summon Bear from his Graveyard and then attacked directly with Wolfbark. Georges Set a card to his back row before ending his turn.
