Round 4: Tombkeeper Jonathan Weigle VS Duplicator Nick Amato

July 16th, 2011

Jonathan Weigle has topped 3 YCS events in the past year. He took second place at YCS Anaheim with Gravekeeper’s, Top 16 at YCS Orlando with Gravekeeper’s, and Top 32 at YCS Atlanta with X-Sabers. Now, he’s back with his Deck of choice, running Gravekeeper’s in the WCQ. His opponent, Nick Amato, doesn’t have any YCS tops and is running a Deck based around the Junk Synchron/Doppelwarrior combo in today’s tournament.
