Round 5 Feature Match: Joshua Brandon Maffett vs. Stephen Roger Escobedo

June 3rd, 2018

Joshua Brandon Maffett from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania requested a Feature Match after Round 4 with a record of 2-2. It’s not often we go down to the X-2’s this early, but his Deck really piqued my interest: Vampires. Dark Saviors includes a bunch of new Vampire support cards, and Flames of Destruction includes the Link 2 monster Vampire Sucker, all of which are in Maffett’s Deck. I didn’t want to risk Maffett taking a loss and dropping without getting the chance to show off what the Vampire cards can do. Since I’m writing this intro after the Match has already concluded, I’m guaranteeing you I made the correct the decision here. Maffett’s opponent is Stephen Roger Escobedo from Miami, Florida. He’s running a Gouki Deck with a few surprises of his own. It’s time to Duel!

It’s Round 4, and we have an undefeated Cubic Duelist! Kevin LoCascio is a New Jersey Duelist, and has been crushing his opponents with the power of Cubics! The Deck can win extremely quickly thanks to powerful monsters and easy ways to Special Summon them. He’s up against Jerome Blackwell, here from Philadelphia, using a Trickstar Deck. Blackwell may be able to use Trickstar Reincarnation to throw off LoCascio’s gameplan, but Blackwell’s unfamiliarity with Cubics could be his undoing.

Welcome to Round 2! Daniel Ryan McGee is from Lehighton, Pennsylvania and his Deck is a Dinosaur Deck designed to go second.  His Deck has the typical Dinosaur cards but also includes an array of Kaijus and Interrupted Kaiju Slumber, plus other cards that work to reverse an established field. His opponent, Nathan Russel Kerr from Mechanicsburgh, Pennsylvania has with him a Paleozoic Deck! We’ve seen this Deck before at previous YCS events and it aims to restrict the opponent’s actions with Toadally Awesome. Both Decks are reactive strategies, so this Match may take a while.
