Top 8 Feature Match: Aaron Furman vs. Gaetan Georges

October 16th, 2016

Aaron Furman is fresh off his UDS Invitational win with Metalfoes, but has chosen to pick up Majespecter as his Pendulum strategy of choice for this weekend. Ties of the Brethren allows the strategy to accelerate to its midgame immediately, and feels just a little too similar to opening with Rescue Rabbit into Evolzar Laggia in previous Advanced Formats. Furman’s opponent is Gaetan Georges, a regular face at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series. He has piloted Blue-Eyes all the way to the Top 8 and is looking to go all the way. Both Duelists bantered back and forth before the Match started, but as light as they made this seem, one of them was going home while the other is moving on to the Top 4. It’s time to Duel!

YCS Minneapolis Top 32 Deck Breakdown!

October 16th, 2016

After 10 rounds of Swiss, the field has narrowed down to just 32 Duelists. Going into the tournament, Blue-Eyes and Metalfoes seemed to be the Decks to beat. Blue-Eyes accelerates huge Dragons onto the field for massive Synchro and Xyz Summon plays, while Metalfoes represent the most proactive Pendulum strategy available. Burning Abyss Phantom Knight was also expected to have a decent showing, but maybe not as strong as the other two.

Here’s the breakdown of the Top 32:
