Round 11 Feature Match: Alexander Cimo vs. Darren Villanueva

March 3rd, 2019

Welcome to Round 11 of the UDS Winter Invitational – Winter 2019! This round’s Match features local Duelist from Las Vegas, Nevada and popular Yu-Gi-Oh! personality Alexander Cimo, facing off against Darren Villanueva from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Both of these Duelists currently have 7-3 records, which means they’re still in contention for a Top 16 finish. Cimo is using a Trickstar Sky Striker Deck, while Villanueva is using a pure Sky Striker build. Both of these Decks were popular in the past, but have recently fallen out of favor. Now, they’re paired against one another in a Match that will likely determine which one of these Duelists won’t be able to make the Top 16 cut, and which one of these Duelists will still have a shot at the Championship Belt. It’s time to Duel!
