Monday Night Matchup: Blackwings VS LIGHT Gemini Beatdown

November 1st, 2010

Back in September, some Duelists had written off Blackwings as a competitive force. With Black Whirlwind Limited, people were taking a very pessimistic stance on the Deck’s chances to thrive. They were wrong. Duelists who were clever enough to see that Delta Crow – Anti Reverse along with Pot of Duality and Cards for Black Feathers paved the way for Blackwings to take two of the top 4 spots in YCS San Jose, as well as two top 8 placements in YCS Philadelphia.

LIGHT Gemini Beatdown has only recently become a huge hit, starting with a Top 16 appearance at YCS Toronto, and then later with a victory at YCS San Jose. While both versions had their own creative stance, they both retained the same basic strategy. With the ability to completely shut down the opponent with cards like Solemn Warning and Thunder King Rai-Oh and then defeat their opponent with very high ATK monsters, LIGHT Gemini Beatdown can cause an unprepared Duelist a pretty big headache.

But what happens when these two Decks meet? Find out in this week’s Monday Night Matchup!

Two of the top cards in Blackwing Decks, Black Whirlwind and Royal Oppression were Limited, cutting down the number Blackwing Duelists could use. These changes left a lot of Blackwing Duelists wondering if their Decks would still work in competitive tournaments, and thanks to Cards for Black Feathers and Pot of Duality, they will.
