Deck Profile: Sasha Del Conte’s Blackwing Deck

September 4th, 2010

Blackwing Decks always have a lot going for them.  Blackwing – Vayu the Emblem of Honor, Blackwing – Bora the Spear, and Blackwing – Shura the Blue Flame give them speed and fast Special Summoning.  Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind and Blackwing – Blizzard the far North make for easy Synchro Summons.  They have great exclusive Synchro Monsters like Blackwing Armor Master, and they’ve got powerful control cards like Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow and Icarus Attack.  It all adds up to an aggressive strategy riddled with surprises and the ability to destroy cards unexpectedly.  Blackwings have been played to multiple Championship wins, and it’s not likely for them to stop any time soon.

Round 3 Feature Match: Michael Boire VS Beau Sherbok

September 4th, 2010

Beau Sherbok traveled here this weekend from Niagara, while Michael is a native of nearby Brantford, Ontario.  While Sherbok is running Blackwings, his opponent Boire is playing a Dragon Deck using Delta Flyer to smooth out his Synchro Summons and Dandylion to make his Debris Dragons even better while fueling the effects of Scrap Dragon and Trident Dragion.  Boire’s Deck is really good at Summoning big monsters, and it’s especially good at Synchro Summoning – but if he overreaches here, he could lose out to cards like Blackwing – Shura the Blue Flame and Icarus Attack.  This one was anybody’s game.
