Round 5 Feature Match: Steven Grillo vs. Devan Rodriguez

November 4th, 2023

We’re only halfway into the first day of YCS Richmond – there’s a ton of Dueling left to go! Here in Round 5 we have two New York Duelists squaring off in this Feature Match. First up is Steven Grillo from Albany, playing Sinful Spoils Rescue-ACE. This strategy’s seen as the Deck to beat right now, due to its combo potential, resilience, and heavy interaction.

His opponent is Devan Rodriguez, from Buffalo, playing Adventure Horus Phantom Knights! This Deck uses Horus cards as easy ways to discard Phantom Knights, and The Zombie Vampire offers even more Graveyard filling power.

Round 4 Feature Match, Cameron Neal Versus Carl Gabriel

November 4th, 2023

Cameron Neal from Texas is facing off against Carl Gabriel from Maryland. Both Duelists have VIP status, so they both started with a 2-round bye. While Neal secured his VIP status by winning the Summer Ultimate Duelist Series tournament in Kansas City in 2018, and Gabriel won his local VIP Qualifier, which gives every Duelist a shot at being a VIP at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series.

Neal is piloting Unchained, while Gabriel’s on Bystial Dragon Link. These competitors are fresh and ready to go, so it’s time to Duel!

Round 3 Feature Match: Timothy Dinh vs. Zachary Vicenzi

November 4th, 2023

We’re in Round 3 with another Feature Match! This time we have Timothy Dinh, from Rockville Maryland, piloting Mikanko! His Deck plays Sinful Spoils and Infernoble Knights to synergize with his Equip Spells.

His opponent is Zachary Vicenzi, from Waterbury, Connecticut. He’s brought a Spright Purrely Deck to the table. He’s able to put down the typical Purrely plays which don’t lock you into any specific Summons, then follow up with Sprights for more disruption. The Sprights can also make Rank 2 Xyz Monsters really easily, giving Vicenzi an alternate way to get his Purrely Extra Deck monsters into play.
