The Finals: Lazaro Bellido VS Roy St. Clair

September 5th, 2010

This was it: out of a field of Blackwings, Gladiator Beasts, Machina Gadgets, Naturias, Scraps, and dozens of other Decks, one Deck was left in this tournaement – X-Sabers.  While Roy St. Clair was piloting a focused X-Saber Deck with Gold Sarcophagus, Bellido was running X-Sabers with cards like Effect Veiler, Super-Nimble Mega Hamster, Debris Dragon, and Pot of Duality instead of Sarcophagus.

Top 16 Feature Match: Roy St. Clair VS Nick Ristoski

September 5th, 2010

One of the few Decks we didn’t get to take a look at yesterday was piloted to the Top 16 this weekend by Nick Ristoski: a LIGHT Beatdown Deck called “Gemini City.”  Packing Skill Drain, Gemini Spark, and Hero Blast, Ristoski’s Deck is extremely good at disrupting his opponent’s combos.

His opponent is Roy St. Clair, wielding his signature X-Saber Deck with triple XX-Saber Emmersblade.  St. Clair mowed through the opposition yesterday with Cold Wave and triple Trap Stun, playing XX-Saber Hyunlei to the hilt in a field where Duelists often Set far too many cards to their Spell and Trap Card Zone.  The pickings wouldn’t be so easy today.
