Deck Construction Profile: Australia’s Jono Ritzau

February 3rd, 2014

Jono Ritzau traveled here from Australia to compete in this weekend’s YCS with his Fire Fist Deck. Jono Ritzau came prepared, and Dueled his way up to the Top 16. But now, no amount of preparation and practice with his Fire Fist Deck will help him. Ritzau is about to take part in the first Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants – Round 2 draft ever to take place in the Top 16 of a YCS tournament. Ritzau has never drafted Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants – Round 2 before, but has a keen understanding of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Will his strong knowledge about the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME be enough to help Ritzau advance to the Top 8, or will his inexperience with drafting force him to face early defeat? I sat down next to Ritzau to watch his draft experience unfold.
