Round 11 Feature Match: Ed Acepcion vs. Aaron Furman

February 3rd, 2019

Welcome to the final round of Swiss at YCS Chicago! Duelist Ed Acepcion, from Carson, CA, is with us for this Feature Match, playing what he calls his “Attack Deck”. It’s a Danger! strategy packing Orcust, Kaiju, and Sekka’s Light, to name a few things. He calls it the Attack Deck because he claims to have not had a Main Phase 2 all tournament – it’s over once he gets to the Battle Phase. He’s only lost one time, in Round 10, so the Deck seems to be working so far! He wanted a Feature Match not only to show off his Deck, but also because his coworkers didn’t believe he was taking the weekend off to Duel – hello to Ed’s friends at work! His opponent is Aaron Furman, from New Jersey. He’s a UDS Champion and a YCS Champion with an amazing Dueling record and no stranger to the Feature Match table. He’s using a Danger! Thunder Dragon strategy which utilizes the new Guardragon Xyz Monsters!
