Round 6: Feature Match Ryan Pasnik Versus Hong-Huy Tran-Vuong

July 13th, 2014

Ryan Pasnik played Gustos at YCS Philadelphia, and now he’s back in the Feature Match spotlight playing his signature Deck, which he calls “Swagalicious.”  It’s Gustos, and it’s got a good record – there was no way we weren’t featuring it.  If you’re not familiar with the strategy, go get familiar with Daigusto Sphreez before continuing.  That’s gonna become important at some point.  Pasnik’s opponent is Hong-Huy Tran-Vuong, an Infernity Duelist with Main Decked Tin Goldfish.  Infernity’s a really under-the-radar pick in this tournament, and it’s got a great Lightsworn match-up amongst others.

 

But could it handle Swagalicious?

It’s time to Duel!
