Here’s the breakdown for Round 9:

8 Sky Striker Trickstar
3 Trickstar
2 Sky Striker
2 Gouki
2 Altergeist
1 60 Card Pendulum Magician

As we approach the end of Day 1 here at YCS Secaucus, Sky Striker Trickstar has proven to be the most popular strategy. A good amount of Duelists have also opted for pure versions of each strategy, but the mixed variant is by far the most common.

Gouki and Altergeist were both expected to be contenders, and have been in the top tables for each round so far. ABC and SPYRAL Decks each were solid Decks in the previous format, and are clearly capable of adapting to the recent shift. Finally, an unexpected 60 Card Pendulum Magician Deck is sitting at Table 10. It wasn’t clear if Magicians would be able to keep up after the Forbidden & Limited List, but they seem as resilient as ever.

This is the final Swiss Round for today, with two more tomorrow before the cut to Top 32 – check back tomorrow for more updates!
