Round 1 Feature Match: Corbin Diez vs. Theron Lee

July 16th, 2022

Corbin Diez from Layton, Utah earned his invitation to compete this weekend from a Regional Qualifier in Las Vegas a few months ago with his Abyss Actor Deck. Now he’s back with another off-the-wall strategy: Valkyries! Valkyries are a fan-favorite strategy used by Zigfried von Schroeder in the original animated Yu-Gi-Oh! series, but the strategy hasn’t seen much use at the competitive level. That may allow Diez to take Duelists by surprise this weekend as he presents them with his new take on an old Deck.

Diez’s opponent, Theron Lee from Dallas, Texas earned his invitation to compete in a Regional Qualifier in Fort Worth, Texas using his Live Twin Deck. Lee has changed his Deck since he earned his invitation to this event, and is now competing with a Marincess Deck made possible by the recent release of Legendary Duelists: Duels From the Deep. Who will prevail in this Round 1 Feature Match? It’s time to Duel!
