Top 4 Feature Match: Ryan Yu Versus Elijah Green

July 17th, 2022

Elijah Green just won our Top 16 Feature Match with Marincess, and three months ago he took 1st Place at YCS Charlotte, the first Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series tournament in almost two years. Green’s Marincess Deck was dominating the top tables all weekend, but now he was up against all-star Canadian Duelist Ryan Yu, vying for a seat in the Finals of the 2022 North America Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Championship.

Ryan Yu won the Dragon Duel Championship at YCS Toronto in 2015. Two years later he’d travel to Tokyo to win the Dragon Duel World Championship in 2017. He won the November Remote Duel Extravaganza in 2020, and now he’s back, taking his shot at the title of North American Champion here in 2022. Yu is on Sky Strikers, and he won the roll to get this started.

Top 16 Feature Match: Elijah Green Versus Jorge Gonzalez

July 17th, 2022

Elijah Green won the first Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series tournament of the year, taking home the title at YCS Charlotte back in April. At that event, he was running Adventure Prank-Kids. But today he’s in the Top 16 with one of the newest Decks in the tournament scene: the revamped Marincess theme, powered up with new cards from Legendary Duelists: Duels From the Deep.

But his opponent is Jorge Gonzalez, running a Deck that’s maybe even more surprising: Adventure Plunder Patroll! We’ve seen Plunder Patroll pop up a few times this year, in a smattering of Top Cuts in National Qualifiers. This is the first time we’ve seen the Deck this weekend, but unfortunately Gonzalez was found to have a Deck list error right before this round – Plunder Patroll Shipshape Ships Shipping and Plunder Patroll Shipyarrrd have very similar names – and now he had a Game Loss for this Round.
