200th YCS Mexico City: Round 1 Feature Match – Alexis Vega Gonzalez vs. Sergio Salazar Rocha

September 22nd, 2018

Welcome to Round 1! We’re kicking things off with one of the hot new strategies players are trying after the newest Forbidden & Limited List – Dark World Danger! This Deck’s pilot is Alexis Vega Gonzalez, from here in Mexico City. He’s up against Sergio Salazar Rocha, from Torreon, Mexico, using a Mekk-Knight Cyber Dragon strategy! Cyber Dragons got some new toys in Cybernetic Horizon, and even more later this week in Legendary Duelists: White Dragon Abyss.


Duel 1


Salazar won the die roll and played first. He Set two cards in his back row.


Vega began with Danger! Bigfoot!, Danger! Nessie!, Snoww, Unlight of Dark World, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, and Danger! Zone. He drew another Nessie. He Set Danger! Zone, then activated Bigfoot from his hand. Grapha was discarded, so he Special Summoned Bigfoot and drew Broww, Huntsman of Dark World! Grapha targeted one of the Set cards, and Salazar Chained it – Scapegoat. Vega activated Nessie from his hand next, discarding itself. That let him add Danger!? Jackalope? from his Deck to his hand. He activated Jackalope next, discarding his other Nessie. He tried Jackalope again, discarding Snoww. He Special Summoned Jackalope, and Snoww added The Gates of Dark World to his hand. He Normal Summoned Broww, then bounced it to Special Summon Grapha. He activated Gates, banishing Snoww to discard Broww. With his two effects he drew Dragged Down into the Grave and Bigfoot. He sent Grapha and Bigfoot to destroy two Sheep Tokens.


Salazar’s remaining Set card was in the same zone as Grapha – he Special Summoned Mekk-Knight Blue Sky, and added Mekk-Knight Purple Nightfall to his hand. A Sheep Token was used to play Linkuriboh, then he discarded Cyber Dragon Herz to Special Summon Galaxy Soldier. Both monsters’ effects activated, and he added Cyber Dragon and another Galaxy Soldier to his hand. He stacked Galaxy Soldier and Blue Sky for Number 61: Volcasaurus, and Vega flipped Danger! Zone! He drew Allure of Darkness, Grapha, and Danger! Chupacabra!, then discarded Grapha and Bigfoot! Their effects destroyed Volcasaurus and Salazar’s Set Gozen Match! Salazar had no follow-up.


Vega drew Snoww. He used Gates, discarding Snoww to draw Chupacabra. Snoww’s effect added another Gates to his hand. He activated it, using its effect again. He banished Snoww and discarded Chupacabra to draw another Snoww. He Special Summoned Bigfoot with Chupacabra’s effect. He played Snoww and bounced it to Special Summon Grapha, then stacked both Graphas to play Number 62: Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon, then used that for Galaxy-Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon! He used its effect, and Salazar used Effect Veiler to negate it. Vega used Full Armor to play Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Blade Dragon! It destroyed Linkuriboh with its effect. He played Allure of Darkness to draw Bigfoot and Chupacabra, banishing Chupacabra. He activated Bigfoot in his hand, discarding itself. He used Chupacabra next, discarding itself. He played Dragged Down, discarding his own Snoww and Cyber Dragon from Salazar’s hand, and he drew Gates. He played it but lost it to Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. He moved to the Battle Phase, sending his monsters to attack. Jackalope attacked the remaining Sheep Token, and Salazar used his Sheep Token to bring Linkuriboh back to the field. Jackalope continued to attack and Salazar was forced to use Linkuriboh on the weak monster. That left Vega free to attack with all his others, taking the first Duel!



Duel 2


Salazar Set two cards to start the Duel again.


Vega opened with Broww, Danger! Zone, Bigfoot, Nessie, Chupacabra, and Jackalope. He Set Danger! Zone and activated Chupacabra, discarding Bigfoot. He Special Summoned Chupacabra and drew Trade-In. He activated Jackalope, discarding itself, and its effect brought Nessie to the field. He activated Nessie in his hand, discarding Broww. He Special Summoned Nessie and drew both Grapha and Jackalope with his two effects. He played Trade-In to discard Grapha and draw two copies of The Gates of Dark World. He stacked both Nessies to play Red-Eyes Flare Metal Dragon! Flame Metal and Chupacabra attacked directly.


Salazar Special Summoned Cyber Dragon and used it with Vega’s Flame Metal to play Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon! He then Special Summoned Mekk-Knight Purple Nightfall, and attacked Chupacabra. Vega flipped Danger! Zone, hoping to draw into an answer. He drew Lucent, Netherlord of Dark World, Broww, and his third Gates. He discarded Jackalope and Broww. With their effects, he drew another Danger! Zone and Special Summoned Nessie in Defense Position. Salazar’s attack continued, and Chupacabra went down. Salazar played Cyber Repair Plant, adding Cyber Dragon Core to his hand.


Vega drew Twin Twisters. He played Gates, discarding Lucent to draw another Lucent, and he Special Summoned the first one. He played another Gates, and lost it to Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. He then played his third Gates, using it to discard Lucent and draw Allure of Darkness. He Special Summoned the second Lucent. He bounced one back to his hand to play Grapha from the Graveyard, then played Allure of Darkness to draw Snoww and Grapha. He banished Lucent from his hand. He played Twin Twisters, discarding Grapha to target both of Salazar’s cards. Salazar responded with Cybernetic Overflow, banishing Cyber Dragon from his hand to destroy Lucent. Twin Twisters then destroyed Overflow and a Set Waking the Dragons, and Salazar used both effects! He Special Summoned Artifact Moralltach and added Cyber Emergency to his hand. Moralltach destroyed Grapha. Vega continued his turn, playing Snoww and Special Summoning Grapha again. Grapha destroyed Moralltach in battle.


Salazar played Mekk-Knight Purple Nightfall, then played Cyber Dragon Core to add Cyber Emergency to his hand. He used Core and Megafleet to play Cyber Dragon Sieger! He Special Summoned Mekk-Knight Blue Sky and added Mekk-Knight Indigo Eclipse to his hand. He played Cyber Emergency to add Cyber Dragon Herz to his hand. He banished Blue Sky with Purple Nightfall’s effect, then Special Summoned Indigo Eclipse. He Xyz Summoned Number 38: Hope Harbinger Dragon Titanic Galaxy and destroyed Nessie. He Set one back row card.


Vega drew Danger! Zone. He used Gates, and Titanic Galaxy negated it and attached it as an Xyz Material! Vega flipped his other Danger! Zone, drawing Bigfoot, Lava Golem, and Card Destruction. He discarded Danger! Zone and Snoww, and Snoww’s effect searched out Grapha. He Tributed Sieger and Titanic Galaxy to hand over Lava Golem, then played Card Destruction! He drew Lava Golem and Trade-In. Bigfoot activated, but Salazar chained the targeted Scapegoat. Salazar’s discarded Herz added Cyber Dragon to his hand. It looked like Vega was about to continue with many more cards at his disposal, but the round timer ended! Vega was leading this Duel, and thus was declared the victor!


Alexis Vega wins with Dark Word Danger!
