Grapha, Dragon Lord of WCQ

June 30th, 2012

I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, have returned! And I am positioned perfectly for my next conquest! For you see, my image has been emblazoned on the banner overseeing the Feature Match area! And from there, I will be able to see all of the top Decks – all the best Duelists and the best strategies – and plan for my Dark World army to thwart them.

The weekend is still young, but it is inevitable that the Feature Match area will be the most intense location on this convention center battleground. And while all of you Duelists are reading about the events, I will have a prime view of all the action! First I’ll conquer the World Championship Qualifier – then I’ll conquer the world!
