Top 16 Feature Match: Grant Kelly vs. Conrad Selig

August 7th, 2011

Conrad Selig shattered predictions for the field yesterday, sweeping nine opponents in a row to become the only undefeated Duelist in Day 1. His Deck of choice? An unprecedented build of “Malefic Drain”: a Deck that combines big Normal Summons with Malefic monsters and Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon to bruteforce its way through the opponent’s defenses.

His opponent is Synchro Duelist Grant Kelly, who we saw win a previous Feature Match yesterday.
