Ultimate Time Wizard Format Finals: Ernie Aranda vs. James Johnson

November 5th, 2023

Welcome to the Ultimate Time Wizard Finals! This tournament used the April 2010 Advanced Format rules, an era where Synchro Monsters were new and the possibilities were endless.

Here at the Finals table we have Ernie Aranda from Los Angeles, playing a Vayu Turbo Deck, facing off against James “Arc” Johnson from Maine, using a Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth Deck! These Duelists are originally from opposite sides of the country, but they now both live in New York and go to the same local tournament!

Aranda made sure to sing Johnson’s praises, saying that his Deck list and the rest of the Top 8 were pioneered by Johnson. But that doesn’t mean he’s gonna go easy on him – only one Duelist can come out ahead and take home the GIANT Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn!
