YCS Ft. Worth: Top 32 Tech Update

October 6th, 2019

Here’s a look at some of the tech cards found in the Top 32 of YCS Ft. Worth!

Some funny business in Sky Strikers

When Sky Strikers first were released, we saw a few Duelists experiment with Toon Table of Contents, but it largely fell out of favor. Today, Nicolas Ortiz has brought it back. He can use the Toon Table of Contents to search for another copy, and use the third copy to search for Toon Cyber Dragon. That gives him three Spell Cards in the Graveyard for his Sky Striker sSpells, and the Toon Cyber Dragon can be used as a material for Summoning Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon.

Machines and Machine Hate

Speaking of Cyber Dragons, we’re seeing them pop up in quite a few Decks to give access to Chimeratech Fortress Dragon and Megafleet. Two Duelists are running Cyber Dragon Nachster in Orcusts, for example.

Another unique Machine-type we’ve found was Iron Dragon Tiamaton. The way to easily Special Summon it, destroy some cards, and potentially lock out key zones (including the Extra Monster Zone!) makes this a strong choice. Matthew Kirkland took this card in his Orcust Deck to a Top 32 finish.

On the other hand, there’s a lot of Machine hate. The aforementioned Chimeratech Fortress Dragon is the big one, and we’ve also seen System Down in the Side Deck.

Nibiru in the Main Deck

Nibiru, the Primal Being itself isn’t much of a tech – it’s one of the most prolific cards right now. Previously, however, the trend was to keep it in the Side Deck to make sure you don’t have a dead card in the wrong matchups. Now, it’s more popular to keep it in the Main Deck. Duelists seem willing to take the risk of a dead draw if it means having Nibiru for the matchups where it really matters.
