Deck Profile: Roy St. Clair’s X-Saber Deck

February 28th, 2010

Thanks to the release of Absolute Powerforce, X-Sabers have finally made it to the top of a SHONEN JUMP Championship. Roy St. Clair took 3rd place in today’s competition, earning himself a “Dark End Dragon” prize card. Many of his opponents underestimated the power of “XX-Saber Emmersblade,” “XX-Saber Hyunlei,” and “Saber Hole,” allowing St. Clair to cruise through Day 1 and make to the top. Take a look at St. Clair’s list. Read more…

Top 8 Feature Match: Travis Gibbs vs. Satoshi Kato

February 28th, 2010

Travis Gibbs is the only Gladiator Beast Duelist to make it to Day 2, and since then he’s advanced to the Top 8 by beating Abel Carrasco’s Lightsworn-based Deck in the Top 16. But his opponent, Satoshi Kato, won’t make his journey to the Top 4 easy. Kato is running a cool Twilight Zombie Deck with “Phantom of Chaos” and “Sky Scourge Norleras” in it. His only Trap Card is “Treacherous Trap Hole,” which will allow Gibbs to make a lot of confident plays in Duel 1. “Gladiator Beast Retiari” and “Gladiator Beast War Chariot” may be problematic for Satoshi in this match-up. We’re about to see how it will play out. Read more…

Top 8 Feature Match: Adric High vs. Dan Rose

February 28th, 2010

This Match sees 2 of the weekend’s most successful Duelists using Lightsworn monsters go head-to-head, as Adric High takes Zombie Lightsworn against Dan Rose’s Kristya Twilight. “Archlord Kristya” and “Chaos Sorcerer” are going to be a big factor in this Duel: High may have to outspeed Rose’s control-oriented cards, but with so many Special Summon effects in the mix it’s really anybody’s game. Rose and High wasted no time getting right to it! Read more…

Top 16 Feature Match: Adric High vs. Alex Mitchell

February 28th, 2010

X-Sabers, Zombies, Gladiator Beasts, Blackwings, Chaos, and at least 3 Lightsworn variants are all in contention in this Top 16 field, but 1 Deck really stands out from the pack. Alex Mitchell is running a LIGHT Machine Deck packing “Blue Thunder T-45,” “Lord British Space Fighter,” “Victory Viper XX03” and more. The game plan? Use double-attacking monsters and Token-generating effects with “Honest” and “Limiter Removal” for game-winning combos. This morning he’s up against Adric High, one of 3 Zombie Lightsworn Duelists in Day 2. The catch? High lost to Mitchell in Round 3 yesterday: Mitchell won that Match 2-0. Read more…

Top 16 Feature Match: Chris Bowlds vs. Deon Patterson

February 28th, 2010

Deon Patterson is the only Blackwing Duelist in the Top 16. He’s running a single copy of “Legendary Jujitsu Master” along with a full Blackwing line-up. His opponent, Chris Bowlds, is running a pure Lightsworn Deck, without “Chaos Sorcerer,” “Dark Armed Dragon,” or “Tragoedia” in it. Blacking Decks have gradually lost popularity throughout the format, but are widely expected to be solid contenders to rule the roost starting March 1. Will they be able to make it to the Top 8 in this last SHONEN JUMP Championship of the current F&L list? Read more…
