Sunday’s Dragon Duel: Leo Chan VS Vinnie Silverman

September 18th, 2011

Leo Chan and Vinnie Silveman both have 4-0 records in today’s Dragon Duel and are Dueling against one another in this final round. Silverman is a local Duelist from Toronto, but Chan traveled here from Connecticut to compete. This is Silverman’s first YCS, and a victory over Chan in this Match will turn his first YCS experience into an unforgettable event that turned him into a Dragon Duel Champion. But Chan won’t make it easy for Silverman. He skillfully fought through 4 rounds of opponents in order to bring his HERO Deck to the top, and will be fighting to make sure that Silverman’s Gravekeeper’s don’t get in his way.

Round 9 Feature Match: Jordan Kehler VS Thomas Morran

September 18th, 2011

We’ve seen a ton of different strategies so far this weekend, but Thomas Morran is piloting a Deck we haven’t seen in Feature Match action yet: Destiny Hero Diva!  A new incarnation of the Diamond Dude Turbo strategy, this Deck aims to use Destiny HERO – Diamond Dude and Destiny HERO – Malicious in combination with Deep Sea Diva, unleashing big Synchro Monsters and Elemental HERO Absolute Zero.  Morran’s opponent is Jordan Kehler, one of several Tech Genus Agents Duelists still left in the tournament.  Kehler’s Deck is super-fast, and really good at managing the Graveyard.  It plays Kristya really easily, and that could be a huge factor against Morran’s Special Summons.

Deck Profile: Bobby Barone’s Mask Change HERO Deck

September 17th, 2011

It’s early here Saturday, but most Duelists are already anticipating Agents and Plant Synchro variants to be the two most important match-ups of the day. The stage is set for innovation, and Toronto’s own Bobby Barone is rising to the challenge! His strategy? A HERO Beatdown Deck that borrows from the Gemini HERO Decks of old, but that adds a fistful of new twists hinging on the new Spell Card, Mask Change. The surprise all-star of the strategy? None other than Elemental HERO Ice Edge, a pint-sized direct attacker that’s taken on a whole new role as of September 1st. Read more…

Round 2 Feature Match: Bobby Barone VS William Lockwood

September 17th, 2011

Bobby Barone is up against William Lockwood, taking an Elemental HERO Deck against Lockwood’s Gravekeepers: a rough matchup for Barone. Lockwood’s Deck packs enough defense to make trouble for the Hero strategy, and Barone has a number of cards in his Main Deck that just aren’t very useful against Gravekeepers. This one might become an uphill battle for Barone. Read more…

Quarterfinal: “Captain” Steven Antwan VS “Agent” Thomas Mak

July 17th, 2011

Sixteen Duelists remained in the tournament, and any competitor who won this Round would have a better-than-even chance at an invite to the World Championship.  Victory here in the Top 16 meant a seat in the Top 8, where 6 competitors would win their way to Worlds.  This Match pits Steven Antwan against Thomas Mak: while Mak is playing Fairies, his opponent Antwan is running a beguiling Elemental Hero Deck, complete with Elemental Hero Captain Gold; Main Decked Super-Polymerization; and Future Fusion.
