Round 2: Shocktrooper Robbie Stargel vs. Chaotic Botanist Manny Vargas

March 19th, 2011

Robbie Stargel is one of many Duelists running a Dragunity Deck in today’s tournament. But his build is unlike most others. Stargel’s Dragunity Deck uses Assault Mode Activate and Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode! Stargel aims to Summon Stardust Dragon first turn, just like most Dragunity Decks, but then upgrade his Dragon into an even stronger form.

Those 3 copies of Chaos Sorcerer could spell trouble for Robbie Stargel, who relies on Level 8 monsters like Stardust Dragon which can easily be removed from the Duel by Chaos Sorcerer’s effect.
