Top 8 Feature Match: Calvin Tahan vs. Jacob Silverman

September 24th, 2017

Calvin Tahan from Arlington, Virginia and Jacob Silverman from Miami, Florida both survived the 12 Swiss Rounds and made it to the Top 8 of the Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational – Summer 2017 here in Kissimmee, Florida! Now they’re Dueling against one another in a Match that will determine which Duelist advances to the Top 4. Silverman is using a True Draco Deck with no Extra Deck (in order to take advantage of Side Decked copies of The Monarchs Erupt). Tahan is using an ABC Deck built around ABC-Dragon Buster, which also includes several True Draco cards. Although Pendulum Magician Decks make up the majority of the Top 8, the Duelists in this Match chose to forgo a Pendulum strategy when selecting their Decks, and both Duelists were thus far rewarded for it with a Top 8 finish. Who will advance to the Top 4? We’re about to find out. It’s time to Duel!

Round 10 Feature Match: Michael State vs. Jack Belter

September 24th, 2017

Welcome to Round 10! For this round, we’re looking at Michael State, from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and his Trickstar Deck. We saw Trickstars in two Feature Matches yesterday, with Kesavan Kushalnagar piloting them, but State’s Deck is quite different. He plays a lot more Trap Cards, as well as Scapegoat. His opponent is Jack Belter, from Dallas, TX, using an ABC Deck! He’s packing a few True Draco cards, to simultaneously use Dragonic Diagram to trigger his Machines’ effects, and to take advantage of the power of Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King. Both of these are Decks mostly under the radar right now, so this should be a great Match. It’s time to Duel!
