Round 1 Feature Match: Randell Platt vs. Logan Stewmon

February 17th, 2018

Welcome to Round 1 of YCS Atlanta! For the first round of the first YCS in 2018, we have Randell Platt, from Plant City, FL, using a Lightsworn Deck. His Deck is using the new Link Monster Curious, the Lightsworn Dominion from Extreme Force, along with some interesting cards like Orbital Hydralander and Performage Damage Juggler (just off the Forbidden List). His opponent is Logan Stewmon, from Aubern, AL, playing True Draco Invoked. The ability to use Invocation and banish from Platt’s Graveyard could be a huge factor in this Duel.

Duel 1

Stewmon began with Terraforming, getting Magical Meltdown, and using that to get Aleister the Invoker.



He played Aleister and added Invocation to his hand. Pot of Desires banished ten cards from his Deck to give him two more in his hand. He played Disciples of the True Dracophoenix, Tributing Aleister and Disciples for Master Peace, the True Dracoslayer! With Master Peace immune to Spells and monster effects, he’ll prove very difficult to handle for Platt’s Trapless Deck. He played True Draco Heritage next and drew a card. He Tributed Heritage to play Ignis Heat, the True Dracowarrior. Invocation came next, fusing Aleister from the Graveyard with Majesty Maiden, the True Dracocaster from his hand, for Invoked Raidjin! He used Invocation’s effect in the Graveyard and passed with an impressive field!

Platt had a hand of Orbital Hydralander, Photon Thrasher, 2 Instant Fusions, and Performage Hat Tricker. He drew Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring – that would have helped moments earlier! He Special Summoned Photon Thrasher and Hat Tricker, and Stewmon used Raidjin to flip Hat Tricker face-down. Platt played Instant Fusion, Stewmon Chained Ignis Heat, and Platt used Ash Blossom to negate Ignis Heat’s effect. Platt Fusion Summoned Karbonala Warrior, stacking it with Thrasher for Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn! It sent Solar Recharge, Fairy Tail – Snow, and Glow-Up Bulb to the Graveyard! Platt sent a Foolish Burial to the Graveyard to Special Summon Glow-Up Bulb in Defense Position. He thought a moment and passed his turn.

Stewmon played Aleister again, searching for Invocation. He played Mariamne, the True Dracophoenix, destroying Aleister and Raidjin to Special Summon it. He played Invocation next, banishing Aleister and banishing Fairy Tail – Snow from Platt’s Graveyard to play Invoked Mechaba! Ignis Heat destroyed Glow-Up Bulb, Mechaba destroyed Hat Tricker, then Mariamne destroyed Minerva. Minerva’s effect activated, sending Giant Rex and two copies of Wulf, Lightsworn Beast to the Graveyard! Minerva destroyed Mechaba and Mariamne, and the Wulfs hit the field! Master Peace destroyed a Wulf. In Main Phase 2, its effect destroyed the other Wulf.

Platt drew Charge of the Light Brigade! He used it, sending Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit, Ash Blossom, and Photon Thrasher to the Graveyard, and Stewmon used Ignis Heat to get Disciples to his hand. Platt added Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn to his hand. He played Instant Fusion for Thousand-Eyes Restrict, and Master Peace promptly destroyed it. Platt Normal Summoned Raiden, sending Monster Reborn and Performage Trick Clown to the Graveyard – he Special Summoned the Trick Clown! He stacked his monsters for another Minvera, detaching Raiden to send Charge of the Light Brigade, Gold Sarcophagus, and Orbital Hydralander to the Graveyard. He didn’t get anything useful and couldn’t play the Orbital Hydralander in his hand; he conceded the first Duel.



Duel 2

Platt opened with a hand of Performage Damage Juggler, Charge of the Light Brigade, Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit, Photon Thrasher, and Orbital Hydralander.



He Special Summoned Thrasher. He used Charge, sending Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner, Foolish Burial, and another Charge to the Graveyard, and had it negated by Stewmon’s Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring. He Normal Summoned Damage Juggler and played Minerva, sending Charge, Fairy Tail – Snow, and Twin Twisters to the Graveyard by detaching Damage Juggler.

Stewmon played Magical Meltdown, getting Aleister the Invoker, and Normal Summoned it to get Invocation. He played it, and Platt Chained Snow’s effect, banishing his entire Graveyard to Special Summon it. Now that Platt had no Graveyard, Stewmon was forced to use his own cards for Invocation: he fused Aleister with Ash Blossom from the Graveyard, for Invoked Purgatrio. Platt had Special Summoned Snow, but couldn’t use its effect thanks to Magical Meltdown. Stewmon used Invocation to get Aleister back in his hand. Purgatrio destroyed Snow in battle, then destroyed Minerva. Minerva sent Solar Recharge, Photon Thrasher, and Performage Hat Tricker to the Graveyard, failing to get any Lightsworn monsters. Stewmon played Disciples of the True Dracophoenix and Set another card in his back row.

Platt drew another Orbital Hydralander, stuck with two copies of Photon Thrasher in the Graveyard! He passed.

Stewmon played Aleister again, getting Invocation. He used Disciples to Tribute Summon, but Platt destroyed it with Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. Purgatrio and Aleister attacked directly. In Main Phase 2 he played another Disciples.

Platt drew Garoth, Lightsworn Warrior. He Special Summoned Snow by banishing his whole Graveyard and an Orbital Hydralander from his hand, and its effect turned Purgatrio face-down. He Normal Summoned Garoth next, and Stewmon flipped True Draco Apocalypse, Tributing it for Ignis Heat! Apocalypse destroyed Snow, leaving Platt with no plays!



Logan Stewmon is your victor with True Draco Invoked!
