South America WCQ Round 5 Feature Match: Helena Jeveaux Werneck vs. Paulo Roberto Goncalves da Silva

June 30th, 2018

Helena Jeveaux is part of the judge team in Brazil, but she’s chosen to Duel this weekend instead. She’s up against Paulo Goncalves, another Brazilian Duelist and one of their finest! We’ve seen Goncalves make the top cut of too many tournaments to count. This will be a Sky Striker Trickstar mirror Match. Both Duelists currently have a 4-1 record, so they’ll really want a victory to keep their record strong and make it to the top cut tomorrow.

Duel 1

Jeveaux won the dice roll and took the first turn. She began the duel with Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, Trickstar Candina, Infinite Impermanence, Mind Crush, and Trickstar Light Stage. She played Light Stage to get Trickstar Lycoris to her hand, then Normal Summoned Candina to add Trickstar Reincarnation. She bounced Candina to Special Summon Lycoris in Defense Position, and Set all her Trap Cards.

Goncalves Set four cards to his back row, then activated his own Light Stage. He added Trickstar Candina to his hand, and Jeveaux flipped up Mind Crush to discard it – Goncalves revealed the Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring in his hand as well. He used his Light Stage on Jeveaux’s Set Infinite Impermanence, and in the End Phase it went to the Graveyard.

Jeveaux drew another Light Stage. In the Draw Phase, Goncalves flipped up Mind Crush to discard Jeveaux’s Candina! She used Light Stage, targeting Goncalves’s Set Scapegoat, and he flipped it in response. She played her second Light Stage, and Goncalves negated it with Ash Blossom. Lycoris destroyed a Sheep Token in battle.

Goncalves played a second Light Stage as well, getting Trickstar Candina, and Jeveaux flipped Trickstar Reincarnation to banish it and give Goncalves a new card. Goncalves used two Sheep Tokens for a pair of Link Spiders, then used a Link Spider and a Token for Knightmare Cerberus. Its effect discarded Trickstar Lilybell to destroy Lycoris, and since it was co-linked with Link Spider Goncalves also drew a card. Cerberus and Link Spider attacked directly. Jeveaux responded to the Link Spider’s attack with Trickstar Reincarnation, bringing Candina to the field. Goncalves used his own Reincarnation to Special Summon Lilybell and attacked directly, adding Candina to his hand. In Main Phase 2, he used Lilybell and Link Spider to play Knightmare Phoenix, co-linked with Cerberus. Its effect discarded Shared Ride to destroy Jeveaux’s Light Stage, and he drew another card. He then used Cerberus and Phoenix to play Topologic Bomber Dragon. He Set one to his back row to finish.

Jeveaux drew Terraforming and immediately got Light Stage. She played it to add Lycoris to her hand. Light Stage then targeted Goncalves’s newest Set card, locking it down for the turn. She Special Summoned Lycoris by bouncing Candina, then Normal Summoned Candina to search for and Special Summon Lilybell. Now, Goncalves flipped up Scapegoat – that triggered his Bomber Dragon, wiping out all other monsters on the field! In the End Phase, Goncalves was forced to activate his Set Called by the Grave, and he banished Lilybell with it.

Goncalves played Candina, getting Lycoris. Bomber Dragon and Candina attacked directly; he Special Summoned Lycoris and attacked with it as well, leaving Jeveaux with just 200 Life Points. In the Draw Phase, Lycoris’s effect finished off her last Life Points!

Duel 2

Jeveaux began with Trickstar Lycoris, Trickstar Candina, Droll & Lock Bird, Infinite Impermanence, and Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage!. She played Engage to get Sky Striker Mecha – Hornet Drones to her hand, and Goncalves activated Droll & Lock Bird to stop her from any further searching. She played Hornet Drones, and used the Sky Striker Ace Token to play Sky Striker Ace – Kagari, adding Engage back to her hand. She Set Infinite Impermanence.

Goncalves Set three back row cards, and Normal Summoned Candina. Jeveaux flipped Infinite Impermanence, and Goncalves responded with Lycoris to bounce Candina away. Candina resolved, adding Trickstar Reincarnation to his hand, and Jeveaux used Droll & Lock Bird. Goncalves Set the Trickstar Reincarnation and passed.


Jeveaux drew a second Lycoris. She Set Engage, then played Candina to search for her third Lycoris. Candina attacked and destroyed Goncalves’s Lycoris. Jeveaux activated a Lycoris from her hand. Goncalves responded with Mind Crush declaring Trickstar Lycoris. Jeveaux Chained her other two copies of Lycoris, and Goncalves sighed – he was forced to flip Trickstar Reincarnation! Reincarnation resolved, banishing all three Lycoris and letting Jeveaux draw a new hand of Magic Deflector, Hornet Drones, and Pot of Desires. Mind Crush then resolved, and since Trickstar Lycoris was no longer in Jeveaux’s hand Goncalves had to discard from his own hand, losing Candina! Still in the Battle Phase, Kagari attacked directly. In Main Phase 2, Jeveaux Set Magic Deflector, then played Pot of Desires to draw Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring and Sky Striker Maneuver – Afterburners!. Jeveaux used Candina and Kagari to play Knightmare Phoenix, discarding Afterburners to destroy Goncalves’s Set Pot of Desires. She flipped Engage to get Hornet Drones, and drew Terraforming as well. She activated the Terraforming, and Goncalves conceded in the face of insurmountable odds!

Duel 3

Goncalves started first this time, with Engage to get Hornet Drones – Jeveaux played Droll & Lock Bird. He played Hornet Drones into Kagari, getting Engage back to his hand, and Set two back row cards.


Jeveaux had a hand of Scapegoat, Trickstar Candina, Engage, and Trickstar Light Stage. She drew Typhoon. She Set Typhoon, Engage, and Scapegoat, then played Trickstar Light Stage to search for Lycoris. Goncalves flipped up Trickstar Reincarnation, then activated Droll & Lock Bird! Jeveaux banished her hand and couldn’t draw any new cards! Then, in the End Phase he used Heavy Storm Duster to destroy Typhoon and Engage! Jeveaux was left with only Light Stage and Scapegoat on her first turn!

Goncalves played Engage, adding Sky Striker Mecha – Widow Anchor to his hand. He used Kagari to play Sky Striker Ace – Shizuku, then used that to play another Kagari. He added Engage back to his hand, which let him search out Hornet Drones. He activated another Engage, getting Hornet Drones again. Kagari attacked directly, and Jeveaux used Scapegoat to defend herself. Kagari took out a Sheep Token. Goncalves Set three back row cards to finish.

Jeveaux drew Trickstar Lycoris. First, she used Light Stage to lock down one of Goncalves’s Set cards. She used two Sheep Tokens to play Missus Radiant, then another for Link Spider. She Normal Summoned Lycoris, and moved to the Battle Phase. As she was beginning to declare her attacks, the round timer ended – the winner would be whoever had higher Life Points at the end of this phase. Missus Radiant attacked Kagari, and Goncalves flipped up Widow Anchor! Missus Radiant’s effect was negated, and it lost the battle with Kagari! Jeveaux had no way to deal additional damage, leaving Goncalves in the lead!

Paulo Goncalves is the victor!
