3 The Winged Dragon of Ra – Sphere Mode

3 There Can Be Only One

Williams’s Deck varies a bit from Brian Chen’s list, as Williams opted to have There Can Be Only One in the Side Deck with three Solemn Judgments in the Main Deck to counter nearly any threat that an opponent presents.  We didn’t get to see it during the Top 4 Feature Match, Black Luster Soldier – Soldier of Chaos is a new option for Decks that can easily Link Summon, giving any Deck that can make it an option for spot removal, gaining ATK or attacking multiple times next turn.

The Sky Striker Deck can be tailored to the pilot’s playstyle and decision making, making it one of the more attractive options in tournament-level play.  Congratulations to Garon Williams for his third place finish!
