February 25th, 2024

One of the greatest things about the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is that it’s got more than two decades of competitive pedigree, spanning some of the most beloved formats in all of card gaming. Normally, a Time Wizard Format tournament les competitors relive one of their favorite eras of Dueling. But this weekend’s all about Team Dueling, and the YCS main event isn’t the only team tournament in the mix! The Ultimate Time Wizard TEAM Tournament here in Las Vegas pits teams of 3 Duelists each against each other, with each pair of Duelists competing in a different era.

Round 9 Feature Match: Michael Joseph Gold Jr. (Team Cintucky Boys) Versus Kethya Kas (Team Picked a Pickled Pepper)

February 25th, 2024

Snake-Eyes has elevated Fire Kings into a top contender, but it’s not the only strategy that got a boost! Michael Joseph Gold Jr. is here this weekend piloting Snake-Eyes Infernoid, still in the hunt for the Top 16 with his teammates, the Cintucky Boys! The Infernoid Deck has a lot of paths to victory right now: it can harass an opponent’s Graveyard with banishment effects, it can flood the field and pop cards, and even make big OTK’s with Phantasmal Lord Ultimitl Bishbaalkin.  We just had to see this thing in action!

Gold’s opponent this round is Kethya Kas of Team Picked a Pickled Pepper, piloting another big Deck this weekend that’s looking to tech against the most popular strategies: Kashtira. Both of these decks are packed with Graveyard hate, but Gold’s the only one depending on his Graveyard to win. Let’s see how this goes.
