Round 6 Feature Match: Christopher Gonzolez Versus Jerry Merrithey

April 11th, 2015

For Round 6, we’ve got two local Duelists who actually know each other! They both attend some of the same local tournaments. Christopher Gonzalez is using a HERO Deck, focused on taking advantage of the new Masked HERO support. His opponent, Jerry Merrithey, is playing Satellarknights.

Duel 1

Gonzalez began with a hand of Mirror Force, Bottomless Trap Hole, Dark Hole, Mind Crush, and Goblindbergh. He Set all of his Trap Cards.

Merrithey Normal Summoned Satellarknight Deneb, and it fell into Bottomless Trap Hole. Its effect gave Merrithey Satellarknight Vega in his hand. He Set three to his back row.

Gonzalez drew another Mind Crush. He Normal Summoned Goblindbergh and went to the Battle Phase, hitting for 1400 damage. He Set the second Mind Crush.

In Merrithey’s Standby Phase, Mind Crush nailed Satellarknight Vega, and Merrithey revealed his hand of Satellarknight Altair, Satellarknight Alsahm, and Satellarknight Unukalhai. Gonzalez flipped his second Mind Crush, nailing Altair! Merrithey Normal Summoned Unukalhai, sending Deneb to the Graveyard. He went to the Battle Phase, but lost Unukalhai to Mirror Force.

Gonzalez drew Dark Hole. He attacked with Goblindbergh, and Merrithey took it out with Ring of Destruction! Gonzalez Set Dark Hole.

Merrithey Normal Summoned Alsahm and dealt 1000 damage with its effect, then attacked directly. He Set a card to his back row.

Gonzalez drew Elemental HERO Shadow Mist. He flipped up Dark Hole, then played Shadow Mist. He attacked into Merrithey’s Mirror Force, and Shadow Mist gave him Elemental HERO Bubbleman. He Set his second Dark Hole.

Merrithey played Altair, reviving Deneb! That gave him another Altair in his hand. Altair attacked directly, leaving the score at 5200 to 2500, Merrithey leading. Merrithey Xyz Summoned Daigusto Emeral, returning Vega, Altair, and Unukalhai to the Deck to draw a card.

Gonzalez drew Book of Moon. He played it, turning Emeral face-down, then flipped Dark Hole to destroy it. Now, he had no cards except Bubbleman! He Special Summoned it, but its effect was negated by Fiendish Chain!

Merrithey used Reinforcement of the Army to get Vega, which Special Summoned Altair from his hand. That revived Deneb from the Graveyard, adding another Altair to Merrithey’s hand. He stacked all three monsters for Stellarknight Delteros, and Gonzalez conceded!

Gonzalez just couldn’t get any of his HEROs together to get going, while Merrithey has a constant stream of Satellarknights flowing!

Duel 2

Gonzalez went first, with a hand of Fiendish Chain, Mind Crush, Mirror Force, Soul Charge, and Elemental HERO Neos Alius. He Set his Trap Cards.

Merrithey Normal Summoned Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo. It attacked, Gonzalez used Mirror Force, and Merrithey used Book of Moon to save his monster. He Set three back row cards.

Gonzalez drew Elemental HERO Shadow Mist. He played Neos Alius and lost it to Merrithey’s Mirror Force.

Merrithey Flip Summoned Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo. He attacked, Gonzalez used Fiendish Chain, and Mystical Space Typhoon destroyed Fiendish Chain to force the attack through.

Gonzalez drew Book of Moon and Set it. He Set Shadow Mist to finish.

Merrithey Normal Summoned Satellarknight Unukalhai, and sent Satellarknight Deneb to the Graveyard. Unukalhai destroyed Shadow Mist in battle, giving Gonzalez Elemental HERO Bubbleman. Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo attacked, and was blocked by Book of Moon.

Gonzalez drew Dark Hole, and lost Bubbleman to Mind Crush! Dark Hole cleared the field, then Soul Charge revived Bubbleman, Shadow Mist, and Neos Alius! He dropped to 2600 Life Points from Soul Charge. Gonzalez activated Shadow Mist’s effect, but it was negated by Fiendish Chain. Gonzalez stacked Bubbleman and Neos Alius for Number 80: Rhapsody in Berserk, banishing Deneb and Unukalhai from the Graveyard.

Merrithey played Reinforcement of the Army, getting a new Deneb. He played Vega and Special Summoned Deneb, which searched for Altair. He Xyz Summoned Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer, returning Shadow Mist to the Deck! Castel destroyed Number 80: Rhapsody in Berserk in battle.

Gonzalez drew Reinforcement of the Army! He flipped Mind Crush to hit Altair, then used Reinforcement of the Army to get Bubbleman! With no other cards, he Special Summoned Bubbleman and drew Raigeki and Mystical Space Typhoon! Raigeki blew away Castel, and he Set Mystical Space Typhoon.

Merrithey Set Mind Crush and lost it in the End Phase to Mystical Space Typhoon.

Gonzalez drew Mind Crush and Set it.

Merrithey played Reinforcement of the Army to get Altair! Since Gonzalez had no cards in his hand, he couldn’t use Mind Crush! Altair revived Deneb, which searched for another Altair. He took out Bubbleman with Altair, and in Main Phase 2 Xyz Summoned Daigusto Emeral. He returned Castel, Altair, and Fossil Dyna to the Deck to draw a card. He Set a back row card.

Gonzalez drew Shadow Mist. He flipped Mind Crush to hit Altair, and Set Shadow Mist.

Merrithey used Emeral again, returning three Satellarknights to the Deck to draw a card. He Normal Summoned Vega. Emeral attacked Shadow Mist and Vega hit directly. When Gonzalez drew his last card, he conceded!

Jerry Merrithey is your victor, with Satellarknights!
