Round 4 Feature Match: Juan Moroyoqui Versus Enrique Miranda

October 4th, 2014

Both Juan Moroyoqui and Enrique Miranda are undefeated thus far and have been pitted against each other this round. Moroyoqui has chosen to use an interesting variant of Shaddoll utilizing the powerful synergies of Kuribandit to fill his Graveyard fast and close out games with Sephylon, the Ultimate Timelord. His opponent is playing another pillar of the current Advanced Constructed Format: Satellarknight. Who will be victorious?

 

Moroyoqui rolls a 10 to Miranda’s 5, and chooses to go first.

Round 1 Feature Match: Denny Yu Versus Travis Holt

October 4th, 2014

Burning Abyss has slowly been building momentum since its release in Duelist Alliance, and YCS Las Vegas Champion Denny Yu has brought the strategy to Duel with today. Using a variety of win conditions such as Raiza the Storm Monarch and a single copy of Rank-Up-Magic Astral Force, Yu hopes to take home his second victory this weekend. His opponent Travis Holt has brought a Shaddoll Artifact variant to the table similar to the one that Joshua Schmidt won YCS Madrid with a couple weeks ago but with his own twist.

 

Yu rolled a 5 to Holt’s 10, Holt chose to go first.

The Finals: Sean McCabe Versus Patrick Hoban

September 8th, 2014

It all comes down to this: two of the biggest Duelists in the game going head-to-head to become a YCS winner, a Championship title that neither has managed to capture up until this point.  While Hoban was the 2013 North American Champion, both of these Duelists are hungry for their first taste of YCS gold.  One of them was going home with a new Championship and an Ultra Rare Ascension Sky Dragon Championship Prize Card!  Let’s find out who it would be.

Top 4 Feature Match: Sean McCabe Versus Ruo Chen Mo

September 8th, 2014

Sean McCabe is in the Top 4!  We’ve already seen Ruo Chen Mo’s impressive skills in Feature Match action this weekend, but now two of our featured Duelists are duking it out for a guaranteed copy of the new Championship Prize Card, Ascension Sky Dragon!  The winner here would be headed to the Finals, and would at the very least head home with a Super Rare Prize Card.  They’d also have a shot at an Ultra Rare Sky Dragon plus the glory of the title of Champion.

Top 8 Feature Match: Sean McCabe Versus Mario Angelo De Micco

September 7th, 2014

So far we’ve followed Sean McCabe’s full drafting process in our Draft Along feature, and his brutal 2-0 victory over Desmond Johnson in the Top 16!  We’ve seen McCabe’s Deck and we know he drafted a strong card pool… but is it strong enough to win a Championship?

Top 16 Feature Match: Desmond Johnson Versus Sean McCabe

September 7th, 2014

Two of the most decorated Duelists of the weekend were set to go head-to-head, right here in the first round of Draft play!  Desmond Johnson was integral to the rise of the Karakuri deck last year, so much so that he’s widely nicknamed the Karakuri King!  But his opponent is Sean McCabe, a competitive chameleon that’s been topping YCS tournaments since 2009 and who just represented the United States at the 2014 World Championship!  Two great competitors, and only one of them can make it past this Round – let’s see who’ll make the cut and who’s making the long trip home!

Top 32 Feature Match: Sehabbi Kheireddine Versus Claude Doiron

September 7th, 2014

This is it: the last Round of Constructed play in the tournament!   The reigning World Champion, Canadian Sehabbi Kheireddine has qualified for the Top 32, and is looking to add another Championship to his list of titles.  But his opponent is Claude Doiron, a friend of Kheireddine’s who also Duels in the Montreal area!  Only one of these competitors will make it to the Top 16.  Would Kheireddine get a shot at another title, or would Doiron go down as the Duelist who knocked the World Champion out of YCS Toronto?

Round 10 Feature Match: Yuhang Li Versus Kenneth McCarthy

September 7th, 2014

Yesterday in our Round 8 Feature Match, we saw David Green’s Madolches oust Yuhang Li’s Fire Kings to knock Li down to an X-2 record.  Now he’s back this morning, hanging in for one last round at 7-2, just one win away from the Top 32.

 

His opponent this Round is Kenneth McCarthy, a Burning Abyss Duelist from Patterson New Jersey!  Both of these competitors are running Supply Squad, so watch for that to be a key card in this match-up: a slow start could cost either competitor if their opponent hits a big start and starts racking up free cards.

Round 9 Feature Match: Bo Tang Versus Marc Carisse

September 7th, 2014

Bo Tang is one of Toronto’s biggest stars, after having topped the North American WCQ in 2011 and representing Canada in the World Championships that year!  Well respected for his incredible consistency making top cuts in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series, as well as his perpetually upbeat attitude, Tang’s playing Shaddolls with Black Dragon Collapserpent, White Dragon Wyverburster, and triple Trap Stun this weekend.

 

His opponent this Round is another lauded Torontonian competitor, Marc Carisse, who was integral to the development of the Pure Geargia strategy in Regional Qualifiers earlier this year!  Carisse is running Shaddolls as well, but he’s playing Super Polymerizations with triple Thunder Dragon instead of the mini Chaos Dragons.  The Dragon’s been a big pick this weekend, but we haven’t seen it in a Feature Match until now.  Since one in-hand Thunder Dragon becomes two via its effect, it’s a great Light to pitch for Shaddoll Fusion, and makes excellent discard fodder for Super Polymerization.

Round 8 Feature Match: Yuhang Li Versus David Green

September 7th, 2014

Once again, we see a Feature Match that pits a Toronto Duelist against a competitor from Montreal!  These two hotbeds of Canadian Dueling talent have been at a clash all day long, and now we’d see Montrealer David Green go up against Toronto’s Yuhang Li.  Both competitors have 6-1 records here in the last Round of Day 1, and they’re two of the few rogue Duelists left in the tournament: Green is playing Madolches and took his one loss in Round 1, while Li is running Fire Kings and was undefeated up until last Round.

 

Green won the roll and opted to go second.
