Saturday’s Dragon Duel Finals: Tombkeeper-Initiate Tony Houston vs. Appretice Dragontamer Grayson Scott

March 19th, 2011

11-year-old Tony Houston is currently 5-0 in the Dragon Duels and is the only undefeated Duelist left in the tournament. He made it here with his Gravekeeper’s Deck, and this is his first YCS ever. He’s looking to turn his first YCS experience into a Dragon Duel victory. But his opponent, 12-year-old Grayson Scott, won’t make that easy for him. Scott is using a Dragon Deck that rushes big Dragons onto the field to overwhelm opponents. Both of these Duelists have some experience at the Regional level, but since this is the first YCS for both of them, they’re really looking to make this Match count!

Round 6: Fired-Up Jonathan Barber vs. Tombkeeper Marquis Johnson

March 19th, 2011

Jonathan Barber and Marquis Johnson are currently undefeated in the tournament, with perfect 5-0 records. Barber is running a Flamvell Lightsworn Deck that he’s been running for over a year. His opponent, Marquis Johnson is running a Gravekeeper’s Deck that uses Malefic Stardust Dragon and Malefic Cyber End Dragon to overwhelm opponents with high-attack monsters. Necrovalley may make this a tough Match for Barber, who won’t be able to use Rekindling while it’s on the field. (Rekindling Special Summons as many 200 DEF FIRE monsters from your Graveyard as possible. All the Flamvell monsters Barber uses fit the bill.)

Round 3: Scrapper Kay Shim VS Tombkeeper Christopher Reitz

March 19th, 2011

Kay Shim is currently undefeated with his Scrap Deck that runs Forbidden Lance for protection from Bottomless Trap Hole and Dimensional Prison.. His opponent, Christopher Reitz, is also undefeated, with a traditional Gravekeeper’s Deck. Necrovalley’s ability to shut down the effect of Scrap Chimera may make this a difficult Matchup for Shim, but if Shim can take down enough of Reitz’s Necrovalleys one at a time with the effects of cards like Scrap Dragon, he may be able to pull ahead.

Round 1: Tombkeeper Mike Papalazaros VS Einherjar Jeff Jones

March 19th, 2011

Jeff Jones is here this weekend piloting Double Aesir, the Nordic Synchro Deck that wields Thor, Lord of the Aesir and Odin, Father of the Aesir.  There’s been a lot of talk about the Nordic theme since its release in Storm of Ragnarok, but this Feature Match represents its first big Championship-level outing.  Will Jones come through, or will Round 1 see an early demise for Tanngnjostr and its beastly buddies?

The answer may just come down to the matchup.  53 year-old Duelist Mike Papalazaros is a Charlotte local, and he’s competing this weekend with arguably the best Deck to take against Nordics: Gravekeepers with Thunder King Rai-Oh.  Papalazaros can lock down the opposing Aesir, as well as Jones’ Pot of Avarices, with Necrovalley, while harrying his Set monsters with Gravekeeper’s Descendant.  Thunder King is a huge threat, staving off Synchro Summons and locking out Gleipnir, the Fetters of Fenrir.  Nordics are about to be tested.
