February 2nd, 2014

My forces may have been defeated in the earlier Round 6 Feature Match, but they will not be defeated again! Tampa Bay, Florida’s Augustus Strowbridge is thinks he can beat my Dark World monsters with Zombies, just because Zombies were recently empowered by the Forbidden & Limited List. Little does he know, Germany’s Benedikt Junk is wielding the limitless power of the Dark World army! My Dark World army may have been defeated once in Round 6, but guided by Benedikt Junk, it will not be defeated again!

YCS Dallas Begins!

April 14th, 2012

YCS Dallas

From the Arlington Convention Center in Texas, this is YCS Dallas! Over 1100 Duelists have gathered here this weekend to battle it out in 11 rounds of Swiss to…gr-ARGH…

Duelists! I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, welcome you to Dallas, Texas and the latest YCS event for my Dark World army to conquer! As you all know, I triumphed in the most recent YCS in the United States: YCS Long Beach. Consequently, I have become the ruler of the Dueling world, and I’ve taken the liberty to rename today’s YCS as “YCS Grapha.” When my Dark World army triumphs again, the name of Grapha will be known by all!

And it’s not just fame in the United States that I’m after. I have divided my forces so as to maintain a presence in Europe as well! As we speak, my Dark World forces are fighting in YCS Toulouse. Fighting for the fame and power of the Dark World Army! Victory won’t be easy, with so many enemy Duelists Side Decking to defeat us; but a challenge like this has never stopped us before. The Dark World army never* fails!

*Revisionist history was my best subject in school!

Top 32 Feature Match: Civil War in Dark World – Maurice Brantley vs. Vincent Mireles

November 20th, 2011

Have you ever wondered how Dark World monsters became such terrifying, gruesome instruments of destruction?

Let me tell you how. We battle. We battle a lot. And if we run out of foes to demolish, we battle against each other. Most of the titanic struggles waged by Dark World armies are against other Dark World armies, as the nobility of Dark World battle one another for supremacy. Better to rule than to serve, yes?

And now, in the first elimination round of your tournament today (elimination… such a delightful word…), two Dark World Duelists are facing off to tear each other apart.

It’s just like home.

I will therefore join BOTH sides of this battle! I have granted battlefield promotions to both Duelists, giving them the temporary rank of General. Let us see what they can do. But no matter what happens, I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, WILL WIN! Read more…
