Round 9 Feature Match: Jean Magueur vs. Luis Rivera

February 18th, 2018

It’s the final Swiss Round before the cutoff! After this point only the top Duelists will move on for two more Rounds of Swiss followed by the Top 32. We’ve got Jean Magueur, from Tallahassee, FL, here using an innovative Frog strategy with the now Unlimited Rescue Rabbit! He’s packing three each of Slime Toad (formerly known as Frog the Jam) and Psychic Kappa to make easy Toadally Awesome and Link Summon plays. Unlike most recent Frog strategies, he’s using a fast-paced build with no Paleozoics – in fact, his only Traps are a playset of Evenly Matched. His opponent is Luis Rivera, from Tampa, FL, packing Trickstars. They’ve proven to be one of the biggest threats at this event, keeping their position as a top strategy from the last few months.
