Round 6 Feature Match: Augustus Strowbridge versus Benedikt Junk

February 2nd, 2014

Did you think that just because I narrated the other Round 6 Feature Match, that I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, would be unable to narrate this one!? Fools! My forces may have been defeated in the earlier Round 6 Feature Match, but they will not be defeated again! Tampa Bay, Florida’s Augustus Strowbridge is thinks he can beat my Dark World monsters with Zombies, just because Zombies were recently empowered by the Forbidden & Limited List. Little does he know, Germany’s Benedikt Junk is wielding the limitless power of the Dark World army! My Dark World army may have been defeated once in Round 6, but guided by Benedikt Junk, it will not be defeated again!

Duel 1

Strowbridge opened up with Pyramid Turtle, Mystical Space Typhoon, Torrential Tribute, Fiendish Chain, Maxx “C”, and Bottomless Trap Hole. He Set everything except for Maxx “C” – a cowardly play that any worthy member of the Dark World army can easily defeat.

Junk led off with my personal tour guide – Tour Guide From the Underworld – bringing Broww, Huntsman of Dark World to the field. He stacked both monsters to Xyz Summon Ghostrick Alucard, but it fell into Strowbridge’s Bottomless Trap Hole. Junk Set two back row cards, but lost Dark Smog – a powerful Dark World tool – to Mystical Space Typhoon in the End Phase.

Strowbridge drew Burial from a Different Dimension. He flipped up Pyramid Turtle and attacked, and Junk Special Summoned Tragoedia.

Junk passed without making a play, plotting his next brilliant move.

Strowbridge drew Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter. He switched Turtle to defense position, and Set Ryko.

Junk used Trade-In to discard The Dark Creator and draw two cards. He played The Gates of Dark World to banish Broww from his Graveyard and discard another Broww, and drew two more cards, adding to his Dark World weapons. He Special Summoned Dark Armed Dragon next, banished The Dark Creator to activate its effect, and had Dark Armed Dragon’s effect negated by Fiendish Chain. “It Must be Mezuki or Goblin Zombie” Junk said, referring to the face-down. Dark World Duelist always anticipate the opponent’s plays!

Strowbridge drew a card and played Charge of the Light Brigade, sending Zombie Master, Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress, and D.D.R. – Different Dimension Reincarnation to the Graveyard. He added Lyla to his hand. He flipped up Ryko to destroy Tragoedia, and sent Plaguespreader Zombie and 2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blasts to the Graveyard. Strowbridge played Lyla next, which destroyed The Gates of Dark World with its effect. He stacked Lyla and Pyramid Turtle for Lavalval Chain, which sent Mezuki to the Graveyard. Strowbridge banished Mezuki to Special Summon Pyramid Turtle, and Junk Chained Maxx “C”.  Strowbridge decided to press through it, and topdecked his Maxx “C” for Plaguespreader Zombie’s effect. He Tuned it to Ryko and Turtle to bring forth Colossal Fighter! He played Burial next, returning Mezuki and Plaguespreader Zombie to his own Graveyard. Mezuki revived Pyramid Turtle once more, and it attacked Dark Armed Dragon. Turtle went down, and it Special Summoned Endless Decay with 3400 ATK! Colossal Fighter collided with Dark Armed Dragon, then revived itself. Lavalval Chain attacked directly, and Junk had Tragoedia! Thanks to Maxx “C”, Tragoedia had 4800 ATK and DEF, even higher than Endless Decay’s! Strowbridge could only pass his turn.

Junk destroyed Torrential Tribute with Mystical Space Typhoon. Next, Tragoedia discarded The Dark Creator to steal Colossal Fighter! Tragoedia destroyed Endless Decay, and Colossal Fighter wiped out Lavalval Chain. Junk Set two back row cards.

Strowbridge drew Compulsory Evacuation Device, but lost it to Mystical Space Typhoon!

“I took the Maxx “C” challenge and I lost,” Strowbridge reflected. I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, simply laughed.

Duel 2

Strowbridge began Duel 2 with Pyramid Turtle, Phoenix Wing Wind Blast, Compulsory Evacuation Device, Torrential Tribute, Fiendish Chain, and Destiny HERO – Malicious. He Set everything except for Malicious – a sinister monster that I once tried recruiting as an honorary member of the Dark World.

Junk used Dark World Dealings. Strowbridge got Mystical Space Typhoon, and discarded Malicious. Junk discarded Snoww, Unlight of Dark World, and got The Gates of Dark World. He played it and banished Snoww, and Strowbridge Chained Phoenix Wing Wind Blast to put Gates on top of the Deck. Junk played Tour Guide From the Underworld, and Strowbridge negated it with Fiendish Chain. Junk played Allure of Darkness, and banished Sillva, Warlord of Dark World.  He Set one.

Strowbridge drew Mezuki and Normal Summoned it, then flipped Pyramid Turtle. He Xyz Summoned Lavalval Chain and had it detach Mezuki to put Plaguespreader Zombie in the Graveyard. Mezuki revived Plaguespreader Zombie, and Junk Chained Maxx “C”. Lavalval Chain destroyed Tour Guide in battle.

Junk played Gates again and banished Tour Guide, discarding me, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, to destroy Lavalval Chain with my effect! He played Trade-In to discard The Dark Creator, and Summoned Trance Archfiend which was bounced by Compulsory Evacuation Device. Junk Set 1 card to his back row before passing.

Strowbridge drew Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress and destroyed Gates with it. He activated Malicious’s effect in his Graveyard to get a new Malicious from his Deck, Junk Chained Dust Tornado to destroy Torrential Tribute. Strowbridge Synchro Summoned Void Ogre Dragon and attacked directly. In the End Phase, Lyla sent Zombie Master, Bottomless Trap Hole, and Overworked to the Graveyard.

Junk Summoned Trance Archfiend and destroyed Lyla in battle.

Strowbridge drew Pyramid Turtle and used Plaguespreader Zombie’s effect to put it on top of the Deck, reviving the Tuner. Junk Chained Maxx “C”, so Strowbridge stopped Special Summoning monsters. Void Ogre Dragon attacked directly.

Junk Summoned Tour Guide From the Underworld, bringing my worthy Broww, Huntsman of Dark World to the field. He Xyz Summoned Leviair the Sea Dragon, which Special Summoned Snoww. He returned Snoww to his hand in order to revive me, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, all but sealing the victory! Junk activated The Gates of Dark World, and Strowbridge negated it with Void Ogre Dragon. Junk hadn’t realized it worked on either turn, but such a mistake would be inconsequential when made by a force as powerful as the Dark World army! I destroyed Plaguespreader Zombie in battle, and then Junk crashed Leviair into Void Ogre so he could Special Summon Tragoedia from his hand. In Main Phase 2, he turned Tragoedia into a Level 8 monster and, with my help, Xyz Summoned Hieratic Sun Dragon Overlord of Heliopolis! Heliopolis Tributed Snoww from the hand to destroy Void Ogre Dragon.

Strowbridge drew Pyramid Turtle and tried attacking Heliopolis with it, but ran into a mighty Mirror Force!

Junk Summoned Snoww and returned it to his hand to revive me from the Graveyard. I attacked directly alongside Heliopolis. I knew victory was near.

Strowbridge drew Zombie Master but had no other cards to use with its effect. He Set Zombie Master and used Malicious’s effect to bring another to the field in defense position. Junk simply blew them away with Heliopolis, Tributing two of me! He Summoned Snoww and once again returned it to his hand to Special Summon me. The Match was over, and my Dark World army had prevailed!

I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, take an effortless victory with the assistance of Benedikt Junk, redeeming the Dark World army from its loss in the earlier Round 6 Feature Match!
