Round 2 Feature Match: Alexander Vansant vs. Sanjeev Rajendran

August 27th, 2016

Anjeev Rajendran is from the Greater Toronto Area, hailing from Markham.  He’s here this weekend piloting Tzolkin Monarchs, bolstered by the new Level 5 Tuner, Blackwing – Gofu the Vague Shadow, from The Dark Illusion.  It’s sort of like Quickdraw Synchron in Monarchs since it makes those Ultimaya Tzolkin plays happen, but its Vague Shadow Tokens also fuel combos with Kuraz the Light Monarch and provide defense.

His opponent is long-time star Duelist Alexander Vansant, representing Voltage Games in Southfield Michigan, which he co-owns with repeat Champion Jeff Jones. Voltage Games is one of many Konami Official Tournament Stores at which fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME can Duel. You can find a Konami Official Tournament Store near you by using the locator available here!

Vansant is running Domain Monarchs, but with a big new twist: The Despair Uranus, fresh off its release in Dragons of Legend: Unleashed.  Its effect lets Vansant search for March of the Monarchs or Vanity’s Emptiness, then protects it from being destroyed, creating a sort of soft lock.  The kicker is that while it’s an auto-win in most match-ups, it’s weak against other Monarch Decks, and now Vansant is in his nightmare scenario.

Round 1 Feature Match: Bohdan Temnyk vs. Robert Dreni

August 27th, 2016

Bohdan Temnyk competed last weekend in the World Champion to represent his native Australia, but why stop there?!  After competing here at YCS Toronto last year, he’s back fresh off his Worlds appearance and looking for more title gold.  His Deck of choice?  The same Burning Abyss Phantom Knight strategy that won him the Oceanic World Championship Qualifier this year.

His opponent is Toronto local Robert Dreni, competing this weekend with a strategy that may catch Temnyk off guard: Mermails.  We saw Mermails make the Top Cut at the South American WCQ earlier this summer, and Dreni is playing some new tech from recent releases.  The Great White North faces off against the Land Down Under, right here in our first Feature Match of the weekend.
