Round 4 Feature Match: Juan Moroyoqui Versus Enrique Miranda

October 4th, 2014

Both Juan Moroyoqui and Enrique Miranda are undefeated thus far and have been pitted against each other this round. Moroyoqui has chosen to use an interesting variant of Shaddoll utilizing the powerful synergies of Kuribandit to fill his Graveyard fast and close out games with Sephylon, the Ultimate Timelord. His opponent is playing another pillar of the current Advanced Constructed Format: Satellarknight. Who will be victorious?


Moroyoqui rolls a 10 to Miranda’s 5, and chooses to go first.

Duel One


Moroyoqui’s Hand


Moroyoqui started with a hand of Kuribandit, Sinister Shadow Games, Vanity’s Emptiness, Shaddoll Squamata, and Shaddoll Dragon. He immediately Summoned Kuribandit, Set both of his Trap Cards to his back row, and moved to End Phase to activate Kuribandit’s effect.  Moroyoqui excavated Mystical Space Typhoon,Allure of Darkness, Vanity’s Emptiness, Sinister Shadow Games, and Sephylon, the Ultimate Timelord. After a bit of consideration, he chose to add Allure to his hand and shook his head at the unimpressive mill.


Miranda activated Reinforcement of the Army to grab Satellarknight Vega, and then followed it up with Upstart Goblin. He Summoned the Vega and attempted to activate the effect, but Moroyoqui had Vanity’s Emptiness to slow things down and stop Vega. Not impressed, Miranda attacked directly with Vega and then Set 4 cards before ending his turn.


Moroyoqui drew Shaddoll Beast and moved to Main Phase to Normal Summon his Shaddoll Dragon. He tried to attack over Satellarknight Vega but Miranda had Dimensional Prison to deal with the 1900 ATK threat. Moroyoqui lifted his Sinister Shadow Games and weighed his options, but ultimately chose to just pass things back to Miranda.


Miranda Summoned Satellarknight Deneb and attempted to activate its effect, Moroyoqui had no response and Miranda added Satellarknight Altair to his hand. Miranda entered Battle Phase and attacked with Satellarknight Vega and Deneb in succession putting Moroyoqui down to 5100 Life Points, then ends his turn.

Moroyoqui drew Effect Veiler, and took a while to consider his lines of play. He tried to Normal Summon Shaddoll Squamatabut Miranda responded with Solemn Warning. Moroyoqui triggered Squamata’s effect and sent Shaddoll Beastto draw him a Kuribandit, also destroying his own Vanity’s Emptiness in the process. Next, he activated Allure of Darknessdrawing into Mystical Space Typhoonas well as Sinister Shadow Games, and banished Kuribandit from his hand. Moroyoqui wasn’t done yet though, he flipped his set Sinister Shadow Games to send Shaddoll Falco. When he attempted to use Falco’s effect, Miranda had Vanity’s Emptiness to try to stop it, but Moroyoqui had Mystical Space Typhoon to stop the Emptiness. Moroyoqui set another copy of Shadow Games and passed with Shaddoll Beast and Effect Veiler remaining in his hand.


Miranda drew for his turn and thought, then went to his Extra Deck to Xyz Summon Abyss Dweller by overlaying Satellarknight Vegaand Satellarknight Deneb. He activated Dweller’s effect detaching Deneb, and then Summoned Satellarknight Altair to try to Special Summon the Deneb but got stopped by Moroyoqui’s Effect Veiler. Without missing a beat, Miranda slammed Soul Charge! The Soul Charge revived the Deneb but he had to pay himself down to 5000 Life Points to do so. Deneb searched for another copy of Altair, and then he overlayed the Altair and Deneb for Diamond Dire Wolf. In response to the Summon of Diamond Dire Wolf, Moroyoqui activated Sinister Shadow Games to send Shaddoll Hedgehog and and flip his set Shaddoll Falco. Although Hedgehog’s effect was stopped by Dweller, Moroyoqui had accomplished flipping his Falco to try to use its effect. It was all for not though, Miranda shut him down with Breakthrough Skilland then blew away the Falco with Diamond Dire Wolf’s effect.


Moroyoqui drew Mystical Space Typhoon for turn and without much else to do, set it and passed.


Miranda Summoned Satellarknight Altair and Special Summoned Satellarknight Deneb, Deneb searched Altair, and then Miranda used Upstart Goblin. After an attack with Altair Moroyoqui was put down to 4400. In Main Phase 2, Miranda overlayed Altair and Deneb to Xyz Summon Constellar Omega.


Moroyoqui drew Mathematician. Moroyoqui Summoned Mathematician and activated its effect, but Miranda responded with Abyss Dweller’s effect to guarantee that Moroyoqui wouldn’t be able to get too much value off of the Mathematician. Moroyoqui opted to send Kuribandit because of the Dweller’s effect, and then passed the turn.


Miranda drew for turn to 3 cards in hand. Normal Summoned Satellarknight Vega and activated its effect to Special Summon Satellarknight Altair from his hand, Altair brought back another copy of Vega. The Satellarknights overlayed for Stellarknight Delteros! Delteros destroyed the Mathematician via its effect to stop Moroyoqui from being able to draw, and then swung in to put Moroyoqui down to 1900 Life Points.


Enrique Miranda
