Top 16 Feature Match: Jake Mattern versus Ryan Levine

October 4th, 2015

One of the unique strategies that have seen a lot of success this weekend is Performage Challenger. Never having seen any success prior to this event, two Duelists managed to make the Top Cut piloting similar lists. What gave this Deck such a big boost? Well as a Rank 4 Xyz-centric strategy, Instant Fusion and Elder Entity Norden both do a lot of work and tie the Performage and Heroic Challenger themes together. Jake Mattern is one of those two Duelists and because the other has lost in Top 32, now the only one remaining in the tournament.

Ryan Levine has gone with a much more mainstream choice, using Nekroz packing his own copies of Instant Fusion and Elder Entity Norden to help him produce game winning damage and flexible answers. Ryan Levine is coming off of a Top 16 finish at this past YCS Toronto, and now he is trying to outdo his past performance.

Will Mattern be successful with his Performage Challenger Deck? Or will Ryan Levine snuff out the strategy from the tournament? One Duelists will make it into Top 8, the other will be packing their bags, albeit with some awesome prizes.

Levine won the roll and chose for Mattern to go first.
