Round 8 Feature Match: Jordan Grant VS Jarel Winston

September 4th, 2010

Astute Duelfans might remember 13 year-old Jordan Grant from his repeated Feature Match wins at his first YCS just weeks ago, at YCS Indianapolis.  While he played Frog Monarchs at Indy, he’s here in his second YCS outing piloting Quickdraw Dandwarrior.

His opponent is Jarel Winston, who has 4 Feature Matches to his name but only 1 Feature Match win!  Winston is running X-Sabers with Debris Dragon, and like Grant, he’s 6-1 heading into this Round.  Winston is a veteran of Championshi-level events, but hasn’t managed to win one yet.  Grant is one of the brighest new rising stars in the Dueling universe, and wants this win just as much as Winston.

Round 3 Feature Match: Michael Boire VS Beau Sherbok

September 4th, 2010

Beau Sherbok traveled here this weekend from Niagara, while Michael is a native of nearby Brantford, Ontario.  While Sherbok is running Blackwings, his opponent Boire is playing a Dragon Deck using Delta Flyer to smooth out his Synchro Summons and Dandylion to make his Debris Dragons even better while fueling the effects of Scrap Dragon and Trident Dragion.  Boire’s Deck is really good at Summoning big monsters, and it’s especially good at Synchro Summoning – but if he overreaches here, he could lose out to cards like Blackwing – Shura the Blue Flame and Icarus Attack.  This one was anybody’s game.

Round 2 Feature Match: Dale Bellido VS Jimmy Chen

September 4th, 2010

Canadian Duelist Dale Bellido is competing here today with a new version of the Deck he ran for the bulk of the last Advanced Format: Infernities.  Despite Infernity Launcher’s newly-Limited status, a number of Canadian Duelists are undaunted and have stuck with the Deck, compensating by running more copies of Infernity Mirage and cards like Infernity Force and Infernity Break.  The new breed of Infernity Decks are all about the long game.

Jimmy Chen was Bellido’s opponent this round, piloting a popular pick in today’s tournament: Blackwings.  With cards like Icarus Attack and Delta Crow – Anti Reverse likely to appear in Chen’s Deck, this Match might come down to who can play the long game the best.

Kenneth McCarthy traveled here this weekend from New Jersey, and is one of several Scrap Duelists in competition here this morning.  His opponent, Justin Lam, is also playing a new strategy: Naturias, with Naturia Bamboo Shoot.  Neither Duelist knew what his opponent was playing, and odds were good that they weren’t anticipating the matchup they were in.  It’s officially a new format now, as we kick things off with Naturias versus Scraps!
