September 24th, 2017

New York’s Roland Fang represented the United States in the 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship in Tokyo, Japan, earning a Top 8 finish.

Round 6 Feature Match: Jeff Jones vs. Zachary Poling

September 24th, 2017

It’s Round 6, and we have two undefeated Michigan Duelists here! Jeff Jones is using a Pendulum Magician Deck, a strategy that’s shown to be very popular this weekend. The newest Forbidden & Limited List left the strategy largely untouched, and even gave them three copies of Wavering Eyes to play with if they so desire. He’s up against Zachary Poling’s Infernoid Deck! Infernoids dropped in popularity after That Grass Looks Greener was Limited over the summer, but this weekend’s it’s proving that it is still a Deck not to be trifled with. It’s time to Duel!

Round 1 Feature Match: Kesavan Kushalnagar vs. Franklin Behm

September 23rd, 2017

Welcome to the 2017 UDS Summer Invitational! This is one of the first major events under the new rules for Link Monsters and the Extra Monster Zones, and also the first event under the new Forbidden & Limited List! This format is entirely undefined, so it’ll be very interesting to see how Duelists have adapted.

For Round 1, we’ve got Kesavan Kushalnagar, from Rochester, New York, who usually judges. He’s here as a Duelist this time, using Trickstars! He’s facing Franklin Behm from Chicago, Illinois, who brought Kozmo Draco to the table. It’s a brand new strategy up against an old one that has been updated to take advantage of new cards.
