Round 6 Feature Match: Billy Brake vs. Michael Ouellette

May 14th, 2017

Michael Ouellette is 4-1 and is running a Zefra Deck. We’ve seen Zefra Decks a few times today, but there are only a few left at the top tables.  Billy Brake is a running 60-card Infernoid Deck and he’s Billy Brake.  This seemed like an obvious pick to feature.

Duel 1

Ouellette won the roll and elected to go first. He Set a monster and Spell/Trap and ended his turn.

Brake’s hand started with Predaplant Ophrys Scorpio, Twin Twisters, Infernoid Harmadik, Infernoid Infernoid Devyaty and Raigeki. He drew Zoodiac Barrage and he activated Twin Twisters. He discarded Infernoid Devyaty, destroying the face-down Zefra War. Brake activated Zoodiac Barrage, destroying it to Special Summon Zoodiac Ratpier. On top of the Zoodiac Ratpier came down Zoodiac Hammerkong, then Ratpier’s effect Special Summoned another Ratpier from the Deck. Brake then Normal Summoned Predaplant Ophrys Scorpio, using its effect to Special Summon Predaplant Darlingtonia Cobra, using the effect to search for Instant Fusion. Both Plants were placed on top of each other to Xyz Summon M-X-Saber Invoker, whose effect was used to Special Summon Zoodiac Ramram from the Deck. Zoodiac Hammerkong was used to Xyz Summon Zoodiac Broadbull, whose effect was used to search for Bujin Hiruko. Zoodiac Tigermortar came down next, then Zoodiac Drident. Zoodiac Drident was used to destroy Brake’s own Invoker, then Instant Fusion came down, Special Summoning Elder Entity Norden, whose effect brought back Zoodiac Ratpier. Both rats were used to Xyz Summon Bujintei Kagutsuchi, hitting a Fairy Tail – Snow and an Infernoid. Bujin Hiruko’s effect was used, banishing itself to Rank-Up Bujintei Kagutsuchi into Bujinki Amaterasu. Amaterasu’s effect was used to Special Summon the banished Bujin Hiruko, and it was used with Zoodiac Ramram to Xyz Summon another Bujintei Kagutsuchi, whose effect sent a Infernoid Harmadik and 2 copies of Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring from Deck to Graveyard. Brake then banished 7 cards from the Graveyard to Special Summon Fairy Tail – Snow from the Graveyard. Elder Entity Norden and Fairy Tail – Snow were used to Xyz Summon Daigusto Emeral, whose effect sent 3 cards back to the Deck to draw Infernoid Decatron. He then used Raigeki to clear the only Set monster Ouellette controlled which was a face-down Jiaotu, Darkness of the Yang Zing. Jiaotu’s effect Special Summoned Zefraxi, Treasure of the Yang Zing in Attack Position. Brake attacked with all monsters, destroying Zefraxi, and passed.

Ouellette drew for turn. In the Draw Phase, Brake activated Amaterasu’s effect to add a banished Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring to the Graveyard, but Ouellette negated it with PSY-Framegear Gamma. Amaterasu was destroyed and Gamma was Summoned alongside a PSY-Frame Driver from the Deck. Ouellette went into the Main Phase and used PSY-Framegear Gamma with PSY-Frame Driver to Synchro Summon Stardust Spark Dragon!  He then activated Oracle of Zefra to add Zefraath to his hand!  After the Summon, Brake Special Summoned Fairy Tail – Snow from the Graveyard and used its effect to turn Stardust Spark Dragon face-down. Ouellette chained Stardust Spark Dragon’s effect, protecting Oracle of Zefra from the next destruction effect it would face. Ouellette then activated Zefraath’s effect but Brake used Zoodiac Drident to destroy it. Ouellette Normal Summoned Zefraxciton and attacked into Daigusto Emeral before passing.

Brake drew Gameciel, the Sea Turtle Kaiju. He Normal Summoned Infernoid Decatron, using its effect to send Infernoid Devyaty from the Deck to the Graveyard. He then used Zoodiac Drident to Xyz Summon Zoodiac Broadbull, which searched for Zoodiac Whiptail, then Zoodiac Broadbull turned into a Zoodiac Chakanine, whose effect was used to Special Summon Zoodiac Ratpier from the Graveyard. A second Zoodiac Drident went over the Zoodiac Chakanine, and Bujintei Kagutsuchi attacked over the Stellarknight Zefraxciton. Brake then used his on-field Zoodiac Whiptail to attach it to Zoodiac Drident, who attacked into the face-down Stardust Spark Dragon, and used Zoodiac Whiptail’s effect to banish the Stardust Spark Dragon. With an empty field, the rest of Brake’s monsters attacked to end the Duel!

Duel 2

Ouellette elected to go first. He activated Zefra Providence to search for Zefraath. Ouellette activated Droll & Lock Bird after it resolved to prevent further Deck searching this turn! Ouellette activated Zefraath and used the effect to send Stellarknight Zefraxciton from the Deck to the Extra Deck to make Zefraath’s Pendulum Scale 7 for the turn. He activated Ritual Beast Tamer Zeframpilica in the other Zone, and Pendulum Summoned Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing and Stellarknight Zefraxciton. He activated Necrovalley before passing his turn.




Brake started his turn with a hand of Zoodiac Ramram, Bujin Hiruko, Instant Fusion, That Grass Looks Greener, and Infernoid Attondel. He activated That Grass Looks Greener for 21 cards, hitting 5 Infernoids, a Fairy Tail – Snow, a Zoodiac Ratpier, and a Zoodiac Whiptail. He Normal Summoned Ramram, using it to Xyz Summon Zoodiac Drident, and used Drident’s effect to destroy Necrovalley. Zoodiac Drident was then upgraded into a Zoodiac Tigermortar, whose effect was used to swap Zoodiac Drident as a Material for Ratpier, whose effect was used to Special Summon the other Zoodiac Ratpier from the Deck. He then banished 2 Infernoids to Special Summon Infernoid Attondel from the Graveyard. He then activated Instant Fusion Special Summoning Elder Entity Norden whose effect was used to Special Summon the second Zoodiac Ratpier. Both Ratpiers were used to Xyz Summon Bujintei Kagutsuchi. The five cards off the top included an Infernoid and a Winged Dragon of Ra – Sphere Mode. He then activated Bujin Hiruko, using its effect to Rank-Up Bujintei Kagutsuchi into Bujinki Amaterasu, whose effect was used to Special Summon the Bujin Hiruko. Brake then used Elder Entity Norden and Bujin Hiruko to Xyz Summon Abyss Dweller, whose effect was activated by detaching Bujin Hiruko. In the Battle Phase, Abyss Dweller attacked over Stellarknight Zefraxciton, then Infernoid Attondel attacked into Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing and its effect activated, adding Zefra War to Ouellette’s hand. Amaterasu attacked directly for 2600, dropping Ouellette to 5100 LP. In the End Phase, Ouellette activated Zefra War from his hand since he had 2 cards in the Pendulum Zones, targeting Zeframpilica and Amaterasu, but Brake used an in-Graveyard Zefra Providence to protect Zeframpilica from being destroyed.




Ouellette activated Oracle of Zefra, searching for Satellarknight Zefrathurban. He then used Zefraath’s Pendulum Effect to send Ritual Beast Tamer Zefrawendi from the Deck to the Extra Deck, changing Zefraath’s Scale to 7. He then Pendulum Summoned Satellarknight Zefrathurban, Ritual Beast Tamer Zefrawendi, Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing, Zefraxi, Treasure of the Yang Zing and Stellarknight Zefraxciton. Satellarknight Zefrathurban’s effect targeted Stellarknight Zefraxciton and Infernoid Attondel, Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing’s effect activated, and Zefraxi’s effect activated targeting Zefrawendi, and Ouellette chained Infernoid Attondell’s effect to banish Necrovalley, and then Chained Fairy Tail – Snow to turn Zefrawendi face-down. Brake destroyed Zoodiac Tigermortar by battle.

Brake drew Predaplant Ophrys Scorpio for turn. He Special Summon Infernoid Seitsemas from the Graveyard. In the Battle Phase, Infernoid Seitsemas attacked into Zefraxi, sending it to the bottom of the Deck. Abyss Dweller and Fairy Tail – Snow attacked into 2 other monsters, leaving Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing face-up. Seitsemas’s effect activated but Ouellette Chained Nine Pillars of the Yang Zing, sending Infernoid Seitsemas back to the Deck and destroying Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing and using its effect to search for a card.

Ouellette used Zefraath, sending Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing, then Pendulum Summoned 5 monsters!

Ouellette then Tuned Zefraxi and Zefrawendi (treated as a Tuner by Zefaxi’s effect) for Metaphys Horus!  He activated the effect forcing Brake to give control of a monster to Ouellette. Brake chained Abyss Dweller and gave Abyss Dweller to Ouellette. He then combined Horus and Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing to Xyz Summon Constellar Ptolemy M7, using the effect to bounce Fairy Tail – Snow back to Brake’s hand. And that was enough for game!  We’re going into Duel 3 with only minutes left in the round!

Duel 3

Brake started off with Infernoid Harmadik, Dimensional Barrier, Twin Twisters, That Grass Looks Greener and Void Vanishment. He activated Void Vanishment, sending Harmadik to the Graveyard to add Void Feast to his hand. He then activated That Grass Looks Greener to send the top 19 cards of his Deck to his Graveyard. He sent Fairy Tail – Snow and 6 Infernoids among those cards. He then banished 3 Infernoids to Special Summon Infernoid Onuncu, then Set the Dimensional Barrier and the Void Feast before passing. Time was called at this point.

Ouellette drew for turn, Brake flipped-up Void Feast, but Ouellette chained Emergency Teleport from his hand, Special Summoning Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit from the Deck!  Void Feast resolved, Special Summoning Infernoid Seitemas and Infernoid Decatron. Infernoid Decatron’s effect activated, but Ouellette chained the on-field Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit to destroy it. Ouellette entered the Main Phase and activated Necrovalley, and Brake chained Onuncu’s effect, Tributing Onuncu to try to negate Necrovalley; but Ouellette chained PSY-Framegear Gamma to negate Onuncu’s effect, and Brake chained the in-Graveyard Fairy Tail – Snow to Special Summon it. In a new chain, Fairy Tail – Snow activated turning PSY-Frame Driver face-down. Ouellette then placed Shaddoll Zefranga in a Pendulum Zone, then Normal Summoned Stellarknight Zefraxciton, using its effect to target Zefranga and Brake’s face-down Dimensional Barrier. Brake Chained the Dimensional Barrier, declaring Synchros. Ouellette then activated the last card in his hand, Dark Hole, clearing the field.

Brake drew Void Vanishment and then dropped Twin Twisters to destroy Necrovalley. He then Special Summoned Infernoid Seitsemas and Infernoid Attondell, Special Summoned Fairy Tail – Snow by banishing 7 cards from the Graveyard, and attacked with all of his monsters. Next, he activated one of his Infernoid monsters’ effects, banishing Ouellette’s in-Graveyard Necrovalley by Tributing Fairy Tail – Snow, then activated Fairy Tail – Snow’s effect again, Special Summoning it back from the Graveyard so that it could attack again. That final attack from Fairy Tail – Snow ended the Duel and the Match!
