November 18th, 2018

Welcome to the Top 16 of YCS Pasadena! In this round, we have Brian Ramirez from Moreno Valley, California Dueling against Blair Hunter from Warner Robins, Georgia at the Feature Match table! Ramirez is the last Cyber Dragon Duelist left in the tournament. He had an impressive showing in the Swiss Rounds. He finished the Swiss Rounds with a 9-2 record, and even won a Feature Match in Round 5 yesterday. Now, he’s up against Blair Hunter and his Thunder Dragons! Thunder Dragon Decks often rely on sticking Thunder Dragon Colossus or Thunder Dragon Titan on the field, and Ramirez’s Cyber Dragon cards can easily take care of monsters Summoned from the Extra Deck thanks to Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon. Will that make this a tough Match for Hunter? We’re about to find out. It’s time to Duel!
