UDS Invitational Indianapolis, IN: Round 7 Feature Match – Alex Mondlak vs. Shawn Rai

August 17th, 2019

Alex Mondlak from Westerville, Ohio is Dueling against Shawn Rai from Long Island, New York in a Round 7 Feature Match that pits 2 of the undefeated Duelists against one another. Alex Mondlak is using Cyber Dragons, just like he did in his Feature Match at YCS Chicago this past February. Cyber Dragons are a strong choice for this weekend’s tournament, since they were pretty much unaffected by the latest Forbidden & Limited List. Rai is using a Salamangreat Deck. Salamangreats took a hit by the latest Forbidden & Limited List since Salamangreat Gazelle and Salamangreat Circle are newly Limited, but Rai – and many other Duelists using Salamangreat Decks this weekend – have proven that they’re still a force to be reckoned with in the new Advanced Format. It’s time to Duel! Read more…
