Round 10 Feature Match: Tyler Stebner versus John Wells

October 4th, 2015

Ritual Beast Decks enjoyed a short surge in popularity a few months ago, but gradually faded away on the tournament scene. Tyler Stebner is here this weekend to show everyone that Ritual Beasts are still a force to be reckoned with. Stebner has updated his Ritual Beast Deck with Instant Fusion, to accommodate the addition of Elder Entity Norden in his Extra Deck and to facilitate the Special Summoning of his Ritual Beasts. Now, he’s facing off against John Wells’s Burning Abyss Deck in this Round 10 Feature Match! Wells’s Burning Abyss Deck is teched out with 2 copies of Vanity’s Fiend, 2 copies of Majesty’s Fiend, and Storming Mirror Force, differentiating it from most of the other Burning Abyss Decks competing this weekend. Stebner and Wells both currently have 8-1 records, but only one of them will be able to win this Round 10 Feature Match to virtually lock himself into a spot in the Top 32. It’s time to Duel!

Round 11 Feature Match: Omar Daoudi versus Courtney Hostler

October 4th, 2015

This is it, the final Round of Swiss here at YCS Dallas. Both Omar Daoudi and Courtney Hostler are sitting at 8-2, needing a single match win and a mere three points in order to practically lock a slot in the Top 32 Cut. Omar Daoudi albeit being a newer Duelist on the scene is no stranger from the Feature Match Area, having topped all four YCS he has ever attended including his very first. He is looking to make this the perfect number five, and has chosen his typical weapon of choice, Nekroz, to do it. Courtney Hostler on the other hand is taking quite the different approach, using a 57 card Performage Shaddoll Deck packing Mistake and a ton of other tools to try to lock out Nekroz.

Will his Ritual mastery put Daoudi into another Top Cut? Or will Hostler’s awesome big Performage Shaddoll Deck reign victorious?

Hostler won the roll and chose to go second

Round 10 Feature Match: Zhenning Guo versus Carlos Medrano

October 4th, 2015

We are back for Day 2 of YSC Dallas, both Zhenning Guo and Carlos Medrano are currently 7-2 in the tournament, barely holding on for dear life as they need a 9-2 record to safely get into the Top 32 Cut. Guo is playing a variant of Nekroz utilizing Speedroids from High-Speed Riders! Thanks to Speedroid Terrortop, Guo is capable of easily Summoning Herald of the Arc Light and super strong late game Synchro plays thanks to Speedroid Double Yoyo. Medrano is using a Performage Shaddoll Deck that we have seen quite a lot around the room, with Main Deck tools like Mistake to try to get easy wins against Nekroz.

Guo won the roll and chose for Medrano to go first.
