September 11th, 2022

Raymond Dai from Detroit, Michigan is Dueling against Cristian Urena from Reading, Pennsylvania in a Match that will determine which Duelist will advance to the Finals of YCS Niagara Falls!

Dai used his Exosister Deck to advance to this point in the tournament, whereas Urena used a Tearlament strategy. Now they’re facing off, and one of them is about to be eliminated.

Top 8 Feature Match: Luke Parkes Versus Raymond Dai

September 11th, 2022

Luke Parkes is another of the UK cadre in attendance this weekend, traveling to Niagara Falls all the way from Sheffield England to pilot Danger Tearlaments, one of the biggest expected Decks for this tournament. Meanwhile his opponent is Raymond Dai, from Detroit, the last competitor in this tournament running Exosisters. We watched Ryan Yu’s Exosister build fall to Esala Wathuthantrige in our Top 32 Feature Match, but could Dai find more success here in the Top 8?

Top 16 Feature Match: Steven Santoli vs. Luke Parkes

September 11th, 2022

Steven Santoli from Hamilton, Ontario made it into the top cut using a Spright Deck that doesn’t just include Frogs, but also uses Live Twin and Runick cards. All of the Live Twin monsters are Level 2 monsters, giving them a natural synergy with the Spright cards. The Runick cards from Tactical Masters give Santoli additional power by allowing him to deal with a variety of different situations and draw a ton of cards with the incredibly strong Runick Fountain. Luke Parkes from Sheffield, England is using a Tearlaments Danger! Deck, but there’s a twist to his Deck too – he’s using Branded in High Spirits and Albion the Shrouded Dragon in his Deck. He uses Branded in High Spirits to send D.3.S. Frog from his Extra Deck to his Graveyard and send Scheiren, Merrli, or Havnis from his hand to his Graveyard and trigger their effects. There are two cool Decks in this Top 16 Match, but only one of them can prevail. One of these Duelists will advance to the Top 8, while the other will be eliminated. It’s time to Duel!

Top 32 Feature Match: Esala Wathuthantrige Versus Ryan Yu

September 11th, 2022

Ryan Yu finished in 2nd Place after the Swiss Rounds, taking a clean 9-1 record with a Deck almost nobody was predicting for this weekend: Exosister. We saw Exosister builds top a handful of Regional Qualifiers in August, in venues like Conway Arkansas and Edison New Jersey, but the Deck’s largely flying under the radar. Now two Exosister players were in the Top 32 here at YCS Niagara.
