Top 10 Side Deck Cards from YCS Knoxville

June 7th, 2019

Last weekend, the final YCS of the 2018-2019 Dueling season took place in Knoxville, TN, and while we provided, as always, the information on which Decks and strategies made it to the playoffs, what we’re unable to do on-site is provide information on the cards used in the Top 32 Duelists’ Side Decks, as our reporters are dedicated to bringing you all the playoff action. Now that the Deck Lists have been transported back to KDE-US HQ and reviewed, we can now provide some information that may or may not be useful to Duelists looking to compete in the upcoming WCQs: The 10 cards with the highest Side Deck usage rate among Duelists in the Top 32 of YCS Knoxville. None of this information will be attached to specific players, nor will we reveal the specific numbers of each card. The choice to adjust your preparations based on this list is yours and yours alone, but the data you’re about to read is true.

Here are the 10 most played Side Deck cards in the Top 32 of YCS Knoxville:

1 Artifact Lancea
2 Twin Twisters
3. TIE: Gnomaterial and Dinowrestler Pankratops
5. Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit
6. TIE: Droll & Lock Bird and Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay and Electric Virus
9. Mystic Mine
10. Denko Sekka

Good luck to all Duelists in their preparation for the World Championship Qualifiers!

New Changes to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series in the Americas

November 27th, 2013

Starting with the YCS in Atlanta, GA on January 31st – February 2nd, we are changing the way the Top 16 works for YCS events held in the Americas.

Instead of the normal Advanced Constructed Format, we will now have the Top 16 Duelists draft their Top 16 decks, and compete in Booster Draft format, using the Brand New War of the Giants – Round 2.

This will challenge our Top Duelists, measure their skill at the game in the broadest possible sense, and give them a new play experience that’s different from the previous double digit rounds played that weekend before the Top 16. We want our YCS champions to be the best of the best, and true masters of EVERY aspect of the game.

Specifics on how to draft War of the Giants – Round 2 can be found here.

The exact details on how the YCS Top 16 will work it will be posted on the YCS Atlanta FAQ in the next couple of weeks.
