Top 8 Feature Match: Justin Delhon versus Sebastian Crawford

November 9th, 2015

Justin Delhon is the only Duelist who made the Top 32 Cut with Shaddoll, using sweet tech cards like Imperial Iron Wall along with the explosive synergies of Instant Fusion and Performages for huge plays. His opponent is Sebastian Crawford, one of many Duelists who are playing the strategy that took the Top Cut by storm: Kozmo. Can innovation beat the new golden standard?

Top 16 Feature Match: Brandon Wong versus Jake Phinney

November 8th, 2015

Brandon Wong has managed to make it all the way to Top 16 with an awesomely innovative Performage Majespecter Deck that has huge combos involving Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer and Wavering Eyes to close out games and take a much more proactive role than the regular Majespecter lists are capable of. His opponent is no slouch though, Jake Phinney topped the NAWCQ this year and competed at the World Championship in Kyoto. He is Dueling with Nekroz, the Deck of choice for many regulars of the Feature Match Area. Can Wong take his innovative strategy even further or can Phinney

Phinney won the roll and chose to go second.

Will Leon advance, or will the new power of the Kozmos lead Ruoff to victory?

Top 32 Feature Match: Justin Delhon versus Alexander Juneja

November 8th, 2015

Justin Delhon managed to slip by us the majority of the tournament because he was in the VIP area, but he has managed to make the Top Cut using a unique Shaddoll list incorporating a full Set of Imperial Iron Wall to hedge against Nekroz, Infernoid, and Kozmo strategies that rely heavily on banishing cards. His opponent is Alexander Juneja, a Duelist we featured earlier using a Burning Abyss Deck with a ton of sweet tech like Horn of Heaven and Anti-Spell Fragrance. Who will come out on top between these Spellcasters and Fiends?

Juneja won the roll and chose to go first.
