North America WCQ Round 5 Feature Match: Rami Ogando vs. Noah Reid Greene

June 30th, 2018

We’re in Round 5 and we have an Altergeist Duelist who’s undefeated! Rami Ogando from Rhode Island got his invite from a Regional Qualifier from the Catskills, NY and he’s facing off against the 2015 North American WCQ Champion Noah Greene from Atlanta, Georgia who got his invite this year from topping YCS Atlanta. Just like in 2015, Greene has a Burning Abyss Deck for the WCQ, with this one concentrating on almost all monsters with the only Spells in the Deck are Sekka’s Light, a powerful Spell that lets you draw 2 cards but prevents you from activating any other Spell and Trap cards with different names after it resolves. They’re both undefeated but only one of them will keep that streak intact. It’s time to Duel!

North America WCQ Round 4 Feature Match: Jesse Kotton vs. Shelby Redmon

June 30th, 2018

 

Jesse Kotton from Toronto, Canada participated in the World Championship in Tokyo, Japan last year as a result of having the most Worlds Qualifying Points in Canada, and after his amazing experience at Worlds last year, he was determined to make it back in 2018. Now he’s the current front-runner in Worlds Qualifying Points for North America, and is in fact ahead of the competition by so many points that he’s already a lock for an invitation to the 2018 World Championship in Tokyo, Japan. No outcome this weekend can change that, but it’s not stopping him from competing! Kotton is still after the title of champion! Kotton is currently 3-0, and he’s facing off against Shelby Redmon from Normon, Oklahoma in this Round 4 Feature Match! Kotton is packing Goukis (featuring Sky Striker cards), while Redmon is dedicated to a purer Sky Striker Deck. It’s time to Duel!

Round 3: Destin Ari Kaspi vs. Jose Carlos Marzan Figueroa

Welcome to Round 3! We’re at Table 94 with Destin Ari Kaspi from Washington State who is currently 2-0 with Trickstar Mekk-Knight! This is another combination of Mekk-Knights with something that isn’t Invoked. We saw Dustin Ogden take the win in Round 1 with Dinosaur Mekk-Knight, and in this round we’re seeing this Mekk-Knight variant go up against Jose Carlos Marzan Figueros from Puerto Rico, playing with a very similar build featuring Trickstars and some Mekk-Knights but also has Sky Strikers. It’s time to Duel!

North America WCQ Round 2 Feature Match: Devon Filos vs. Matthew Vanden Heuvel

June 30th, 2018

Devon Filos from Los Angeles, California is Dueling against Matthew Vanden Heuvel from Toronto, Canada in this Round 2 Feature Match! Both Duelists are currently 1-0 in the tournament, and Filos is using a True Draco Deck. True Dracos are easier to build than ever before now that Dragonic Diagram is available in Battles of Legend: Relentless Revenge, but do True Dracos have what it takes to win the North America WCQ? Vanden Heuvel is using a Gouki Deck that features Living Fossil from Battles of Legend: Relentless Revenge, to be used in conjunction with Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights.

North America WCQ Round 1 Feature Match: Dustin Allen Ogden vs. Louis LaQuerre

June 30th, 2018

Welcome to the North America World Championship Qualifier! We have 1793 Duelists vying for the title of 2018 North America Champion and trying to punch their ticket to the 2018 Yu-Gi-Oh TRADING CARD GAME World Championship! Our Round 1 Feature Match is Dustin Allen Odgen from Tulsa, Oklahoma who qualified for the tournament by placing 1st in Last Chance Qualifiers #34 with a Deck featuring Dinosaurs – which we haven’t seen a ton of since the last Forbidden and Limited List update that sent That Grass Looks Greener onto the Forbidden List – with Mekk-Knights, which we usually see paired with Invoked monsters. This is an interesting twist to a tried and tested strategy which gave him 4 wins yesterday! His opponent is Louis LaQuerre from Quebec who got his invite from placing in 9th place at a Quebec Regional Qualifier. He has Paleozoic Frogs with him, another Deck that has proven itself as a reliable strategy. This is arguably the most important tournament of the year for most of the Duelists in attendance, and we’re ready to kick things off! It’s time to Duel!
