Round 5 Feature Match: Alejandro Garcia Moreno Versus Juan Israel Galvez Vallejo

June 11th, 2016

Alejandro Garcia Moreno won the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series in San Jose, Costa Rica earlier this year, and now he’s looking to add a second title to his list of accomplishments.

His opponent is Juan Israel Galvez Valleojo, from Celaya in Guanajuato, Mexico.  He’s piloting Burning Knights  against Moreno’s Fire King Kozmos – the first Fire King Kozmo deck we’ve seen in the tournament so far.

Moreno won the roll and opted to open the Match.  He opened with Terraforming; Kozmo Soartroopers; Allure of Darkness; and two Kozmo Forerunners.  He activated Allure to draw Kozmoll Dark Lady and another Allure, then banished Dark Lady to complete Allure’s effect.  The next Allure got him Kozmojo and Call of the Haunted, and he banished Soartroopers.  He searched out Fire King Island with Terraforming.

Moreno activated it to destroy one of his two Forerunners from his hand, searching out Fire King Avatar Garunix with the Island’s effect and banishing Forerunner to Special Summon Kozmo Strawman from his Deck.  He brought back the Forerunner with Strawman and Set two cards to his backrow.  In the End Phase, Strawman destroyed the Forerunner and Moreno banished it to Special Summon Kozmo Tincan.  He paid to activate Tincan’s effect, revealed Kozmo Landwalker, Kozmo Dark Destroyer, and Kozmo Sliprider from his Deck, and got Landwalker.


Vallejo Normal Summoned The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots, and Moreno revived his Kozmo Dark Destroyer with Call of the Haunted, destroying Silent Boots with Dark Destroyer’s effect.  Vallejo banished it from his Graveyard to search his Deck for Phantom Knights’ Fog Blade, and Special Summoned Barbar, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss.  He sent it to attack Tincan, Moreno banished his Strawman to Special Summon Kozmo Landwalker, and when Barbar collided with Tincan, Moreno destroyed Kozmo Dark Destroyer to keep Tincan around.  He banished Dark Destroyer to Special Summon Kozmoll Dark Lady from his Deck and Vallejo Set three cards to his backrow.

Moreno activated Tincan’s effect in his End Phase, selecting Kozmo Dark Destroyer, Kozmo Dark Eclipser, and Kozmotown from his Deck, and got Kozmotown.  He flipped Kozmojo next, destroying his Landwalker to blindly banish Vallejo’s Set Chaos Trap Hole.  Landwalker was banished to Special Summon Kozmo Sliprider, destroying Vallejo’s Set Phantom Knights’ Fog Blade and leaving him with just one Set card in his Spell and Trap Card Zones.

Moreno drew another Kozmo Dark Destroyer.  He used Fire King Island to destroy his on-field Sliprider, searching Fire King Avatar Yaksha, and banished Sliprider to Special Summon another Kozmo Strawman.  That brought his banished Kozmo Dark Destroyer back to the field and Moreno Normal Summoned Yaksha.  He attacked with it to destroy Barbar, then attacked with Strawman, Dark Lady, and Dark Destroyer, before banishing Tincan to Special Summon his next Kozmo Forerunner to take the first Duel!


Alejandro Garcia Moreno hits an explosive opening with Fire King Island, and then follows up with another Island activation courtesy of the uncommon choice of Fire King Avatar Yaksha!  Victory was academic from there, as Moreno wiped his opponent’s backrow with that Kozmojo-into-Sliprider play, and just like that we were off to Game 2.

Vallejo activated the effect of Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss to Special Summon it, and Moreno Chained the effect of Maxx “C” to draw a card.  Vallejo Normal Summoned Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, then overlaid to Xyz Summon Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss, giving Moreno another card. He detached to send three cards from the top of his Deck to his Graveyard, yarded The Phantom Knights of Ragged Gloves in the process, and Set two cards to his backrow.  He ended his turn and searched his Deck for Tour Guide from the Underworld via Scarm.

Moreno had Fire King Island; Emergency Teleport; Kozmojo; Fire King Avatar Yaksha; Terraforming; and Kozmo Dark Eclipser.  He drew Kozmotown for his turn and activated Island to destroy his Dark Eclipser.  That searched him Fire King Avatar Garunix from his Deck, and he banished Dark Eclipser to fetch Kozmo Dark Destroyer.  He activated Kozmotown to destroy Fire King Island, then Special Summoned Kozmo Strawman from his Deck with Emergency Teleport; Vallejo targeted it with Phantom Knights’ Fog Blade, and Moreno responded with both of Strawman’s effects in quick succession.  That banished Strawman to keep it safe from Fog Blade, and saw Moreno Special Summon Kozmo Dark Eclipser and Dark Destroyer.

Moreno destroyed Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss with Dark Destroyer’s effect, Vallejo got back his Scarm, and Moreno Normal Summoned Fire King Avatar Yaksha.  He attacked with Yaksha, then Eclipser, and Vallejo revived The Phantom Knights of Ragged Gloves to block the shot.  He took 2800 damage moments later from Kozmo Dark DestroyerKozmo Strawman’s effect kicked in to destroy Dark Eclipser in the End Phase and Moreno added another Dark Destroyer to his hand from his Deck.

Vallejo was down to 3200 Life Points  while Moreno was sitting pretty at 7300.  Vallejo Normal Summoned Tour Guide, Special Summoned Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss, and overlaid both for another Dante.  Moreno flipped Kozmojo, blew away his Dark Destroyer, and banished Vallejo’s Dante.  He banished the Dark Destroyer, but lost its effect to Solemn Strike.  Vallejo Special Summoned Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss with Graff, then sent Calcab, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss to the Graveyard with Foolish Burial to bump away Moreno’s one backrow card.  He Summoned Scarm, overlaid it with Cir for another Dante, and detached Cir to send Anti-Spell Fragrance, Chaos Trap Hole, and Solemn Strike to his Graveyard – nothing helpful there.  Cir got him back his previous Dante from the Graveyard, and Vallejo overlaid both Dantes to make Number F0: Utopic Future.

Moreno drew a second Terraforming and Normal Summoned Kozmo Strawman to bring out Kozmo Dark Destroyer.  He banished the Strawman to Special Summon another Dark Destroyer from his hand, destroyed it with its effect, and Special Summoned Kozmoll Dark Lady to play around the effect of Number F0: Utopic Future.  He attacked it with Fire King Avatar Yaksha, then negated its effect with Kozmoll Dark Lady.  Vallejo detached a Dante to keep Utopic Future on the field, then used the Dante to get back his Graff.

Moreno retrieved his banished Kozmo Dark Destroyer with Kozmotown and Set both of his Terraformings as bluffs.  In the End Phase, Strawman’s effect destroyed his Kozmo Dark Destroyer, he Special Summoned Kozmo Tincan, and used its ability to reveal Kozmo Sliprider, Kozmo Landwalker, and Kozmo Forerunner from his Deck, getting Landwalker.

Vallejo drew to three cards in hand with Number F0: Utopic Future on the field, still with one Dante attached.  He attacked Kozmoll Dark Lady with it, and Moreno banshed Kozmo Tincan to Special Summon Kozmo Dark Destroyer from his hand, forcing Vallejo to detach Dante to keep Utopic Future alive.  But that got Vallejo’s Cir back from the Graveyard and he replayed the attack, pressing on Kozmo Dark Destroyer to take control of it.  He attacked Kozmoll Dark Lady with Dark Destroyer and Moreno banished it, Special Summoning Kozmo Landwalker in Defense Mode.  That triggered a second replay, and Vallejo attacked Yaksha with Dark Destroyer to bring it down.   That let Moreno destroy his Landwalker with Yaksha’s effect, Special Summoning Kozmo Strawman.

Moreno used Kozmotown to get back another Kozmo Strawman, then activated Twin Twisters pitching Garunix to target Vallejo’s Set Mystical Space Typhoon and his own Kozmotown.  Vallejo Chained the Mystical Space Typhoon to destroy Moreno’s face-down Terraforming, Kozmotown got Moreno his Kozmojo back, and he used his Strawman’s effect to Special Summon back his second Kozmo Dark Destroyer.  He overlaid them for Number 23: Lancelot, Dark Knight of the Underworld to attack around Number F0: Utopic Future, and made one big direct attack to win the Duel and the Match!


Alejandro Garcia Moreno loops play after play, working wonders with Kozmo Strawman and Kozmo Dark Destroyer to grind through Juan Israel Galvez Vallejo’s defenses again and again!  Moreno moves on with a 5-0 record, with three Rounds remaining in Day 1.
