YCS San Diego: Round 10 Feature Match: Esteban Vences Brito vs. Edward Carlos Schumm III

November 19th, 2017

Only one round of Swiss remains! These two Duelists are on the bubble, each with 8-2 records. A win is needed here for a shot at the Top 32. We have Esteban Vences, from Santa Ana, CA, playing Pendulum Magicians. The Deck was unquestionably the strongest, but once Circuit Break released a SPYRAL Link Monster,  all that went out the window. He’s showing that’s it’s still a consistent and powerful Deck, and so far it’s worked very well for him. His opponent is Edward Schumm, from San Luis Rio Colorado, in Sonora, Mexico.

It’s Round 6, and we’ve got Jackson Rauch, from Prescott, AZ, playing Magical Musketeers! These new cards from Spirit Warriors have some awesome gunfighting tricks that let them play Magical Musket cards and Spell & Trap Cards from the hand at any time, and have effects when a Spell or Trap Card is activated in the same column as them. His opponent is Avery Foster, from San Antonio, TX, playing SPYRAL. The strategy was uncontested as the number one strategy a few weeks ago, but a new Forbidden & Limited List has put them in check.
