February 3rd, 2019

Welcome to Day 2 of YCS Chicago! There are just 2 more Swiss Rounds before the Top 32 cut, and the Duelists are seated and ready to begin! For this Round 10 Feature Match, we have Brandon Sevitz from Indianapolis with his Danger! Deck Dueling against Gianpaolo Lombardi from Chicago and his Sky Striker Deck! Lombardi’s Extra Deck features 2 copies of the new Sky Striker Ace – Kaina from Savage Strike. Sevitz’s Danger! Deck is capable of explosive plays, but Lombardi’s Deck is one of the most consistent in the room. Both Duelists currently have a 7-2 record, so each of them is after a victory in this Match to keep the Top 32 dream alive. It’s time to Duel!

Round 6 Feature Match: Akeem Abrahim vs. Chester Henson

February 2nd, 2019

Akeem Abrahim and Chester Henson are both currently 5-0 in YCS Chicago. Abrahim is using a Trickstar Deck that includes 3 copies of Trickstar Corobane plus 3 copies of Pot of Extravagance from Savage Strike, while Henson is using a Subterror Deck that is capable of dominating a Duel with the new Savage Strike Subterror monster, Subterror Guru. Henson is an experienced Duelist and the winner of the 2017 North America World Championship Qualifier, so his decision to use a lightly-represented Subterror Deck in the tournament should speak to how powerful he believes the Deck can be. It’s time to Duel!

Round 2 Feature Match: Stefan Molgat vs. Louis Kelley

February 2nd, 2019

Stefan Molgat from Winnipeg, Canada is Dueling against Louis Kelley from Chicago, Illinois in this Round 2 Feature Match! Molgat is using a Crusadia Guardragon Deck made possible by the latest Savage Strike booster set. Molgat’s Deck is not heavily represented by Duelists in this weekend’s event, so his ability to take opponents by surprise may work to his advantage this weekend. Kelley, on the other hand, is using a tried-and-true Sky Striker strategy, that many competitors are predicting to be a dominating force this weekend. Molgat is using lots of cards from the latest Savage Strike booster set, including one copy of each of the Extra Deck Guardragon monsters, a copy of Guardragon Cataclysm, and a copy of Borreload Savage Dragon, which he can Summon by Tuning Elephun with World Legacy – “World Crown”.  Molgat’s Deck is capable of making a lot of really cool plays and Summoning very powerful monsters, but will the consistency of Kelley’s Sky Striker Deck be too much for Molgat to handle? We’re about to find out. It’s time to Duel!
