Round 4 Feature Match: Jeff Jones vs. Feliciano Vega

February 17th, 2018

Michigan Duelist Jeff Jones won the UDS Championship in Orlando just a few months ago, giving him the coveted VIP status! As a VIP he gets two byes in the start of the tournament, along with special seating. He’s using the new Mekk-Knight monsters from Extreme Force, mixed with Invoked. It’s a great mix, since Mekk-Knights typically will never Normal Summon, so you can make use of Aleister the Invoker each turn. His opponent is Feliciano Vega, from Houston, TX. Vega is using Trickstars today, making this a matchup of one of the first VRAINS archetypes against one of the most recent. It’s time to Duel!

Round 2 Feature Match: Roland Fang vs. Joshua Johnson

February 17th, 2018

Roland Fang was the highest-ranking North American Duelist in the world last year, making it to the Top 8 of the 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship in Tokyo, Japan. Now he’s hungry for a YCS victory, and betting on his Mekk-Knight Invoked Deck to win it for him. He’s currently 1-0 in the tournament, and he’s about to face off against Joshua Johnson and his Pendulum-based Deck. Johnson doesn’t quite have the amount of Dueling experience that Fang has, but he and his Pendulum-based Deck are supported by Heavymetalfoes Electrumite from Extreme Force. That’s certain to make Johnson a worthy opponent for Fang.

Raphael Neven is here all the way from the Netherlands! He just won YCS Prague with SPYRAL at the end of 2017 and is looking to keep winning here in 2018. He’s using True Draco in this event, which is already looking to be one of the most popular choices. His opponent is Josiah Miller from Chattanooga, TN, using a Lightsworn Shiranui Deck. Our previous Feature Match had True Draco defeat Lightsworn – can Miller turn the tide or will Neven’s Deck and experience give him the edge? It’s time to Duel!

His opponent is Logan Stewmon, from Aubern, AL, playing True Draco Invoked. The ability to use Invocation and banish from Platt’s Graveyard could be a huge factor in this Duel.
