Top 32 Feature Match: Sean Martinov versus Robert Potter

May 29th, 2016

This is it! We’re now in the Top 32. A loss here will knock a Duelist out of the tournament, but everyone is 5 wins away from becoming a YCS Champion! This is Sean Martinov’s 2nd YCS top, making top 32 in YCS Toronto last year. He’s running Kozmos today while his opponent, Robert Potter from Pennsylvania is here with Majespecters. Who will advance in the tournament? Let’s find out!

Game 1

For the second time today, a Deck Check randomly selected the Feature Match table! No issues here were found.

Potter won the roll and decided to go first.

He opened up with Odd-Eyes Fusion, Mist Valley Apex Avian, Dragonpit Magician, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and Majespecter Raccoon – Bunbuku. He Normal Summoned Majespecter Raccoon – Bunbuku, and used it effect to add Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin to hand. He activated Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and Dragonpit Magician as Pendulum Scales and Pendulum Summoned Mist Valley Apex Avian and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin! In the End Phase, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon destroyed itself and Potter added Wisdom-Eye Magician to hand.

Martinov drew for turn and started off with Kozmo Tincan. Potter immediately used Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin’s effect, targeting Raccoon and Kozmo Tincan, Kozmo Tincan was chained, banishing to Special Summon but it was negated by Potter’s Mist Valley Apex Avian. Martinov pressed on by using Kozmotown, using its effect to send Kozmo Tincan and Dark Destroyer to the Deck to draw 2 cards. Martinov then activated another Kozmotown, using its effect to send back a Kozmoll Wickedwitch to draw a card. He set 2 Spell/Traps and passed.

Potter drew Dragonpulse Magician. He activated Wisdom-Eye Magician in the vacant Pendulum Zone, but took too long to make that decision and received a Slow Play Warning. Since he received a Slow Play earlier in the tournament yesterday, the Head Judge came by and assessed the situation and decided to not upgrade the penalty, so the game played on. Potter used Wisdom-Eye to destroy itself and place Oafdragon Magician in the Pendulum Zone in its place. He then used Oafdragon Magician’s effect to add back the Wisdom-Eye, then used Dragonpit’s Pendulum Effect, discarding Dragonpulse Magician to destroy Martinov’s set Kozmojo. Potter then Normal Summoned Majespecter Raccoon – Bunbuku, adding Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin from Deck to hand. Potter then Pendulum Summoned monsters to fill his field and that was enough to take the first game.

Game 2

Martinov elected to go first and activated Allure of Darkness, drawing 2 cards and banishing Kozmo Soartroopers. He Normal Summoned Kozmo Tincan, set 2 Spell/Traps then moved to the End Phase and used Kozmo Tincan to reveal Kozmo Dark Destroyer, Kozmo Landwalker and Kozmo Sliprider. Kozmo Landwalker was randomly selected to be added to hand.


Potter’s activated Summoner’s Art, adding Dragonpit Magician to hand of Twin Twisters, Performapal Skullcrobat Joker, Sky Iris, Majespecter Raccoon – Bunbuku, and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin. He activated Twin Twisters, discarding Majespecter Raccoon – Bunbuku to hit the 2 set cards, and Call of the Haunted was chained, Summoning Kozmo Dark Destroyer. The other card was Kozmojo. Dark Destroyer was destroyed and its effect was used to Special Summon Kozmoll Dark Lady from the Deck. Potter pressed on by activating Sky Iris, then Dragonpit Magician and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin as Pendulum Scales. Sky Iris was used to destroy Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin to add Odd-Eyes Fusion from Deck to hand. Odd-Eyes Fusion was activated, sending Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon and Odd-Eyes Meteorburst Dragon from the Extra Deck to the Graveyard to Fusion Summon Odd-Eyes Vortex Dragon! Vortex Dragon’s effect was activated, targeting Dark Lady, Kozmo Tincan’s effect was chained, banishing itself to Special Summon Kozmo Forerunner. Kozmoll Dark Lady was returned to Martinov’s hand. Potter then Normal Summoned Performapal Skullcrobat Joker, adding Wisdom-Eye Magician with its effect, which was immediately placed in the Pendulum Zone then destroyed with its own effect to place Oafdragon Magician in its place. Potter then Pendulum Summoned Wisdom-Eye Magician and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin. Wisdom-Eye and Performapal Skullcrobat Joker were used to Xyz Summon Number 39: Utopia which was then used to Xyz Summon Number S39: Utopia the Lightning. Utopia the Lightning declared an attack and its effect was used to make its ATK 5000, overpowering Forerunner! And because of Utopia the Lightning’s Continuous Effect, Kozmo Forerunner’s Special Summon effect couldn’t be activated. The other 2 monsters landed direct attacks.


On his turn, Martinov could only Normal Summon Kozmoll Wickedwitch and set a Spell/Trap. In the End Phase, Potter used Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin’s effect to try and bounce itself and Kozmoll Wickedwitch, but Martinov banished Kozmoll Wickedwitch to Special Summon Kozmo Landwalker.

Potter drew, and used Sky Iris’s effect, targeting Oafdragon Magician. Martinov chained Call of the Haunted targeting Kozmo Forerunner. Potter placed Dragonpulse Magician in the vacant Pendulum Zone. He then Pendulum Summoned Oafdragon Magician, Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin! Oafdragon Magician and Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin were used to Xyz Summon Number 39: Utopia Beyond, using its effect to make Kozmo Landwalker’s ATK 0 and that was enough to end the match!
