Round 5 Feature Match: Steven Trifunoski vs. Ramiro Garcia

February 15th, 2020

Welcome to Round 5! We’re at Table 35 where Ramiro Garcia – YCS Guadalajara Champion – from Dallas, Texas, has SPYRALs and is taking on Steven Trifunoski, who says he’s from Mt. Olympus but I’m not entirely sure that’s accurate, and his Pendulum Deck. Trifunoski has historically done well with the Pendulum strategy, taking it to a Top 8 finish at a Regional Qualifier in Scarborough, Canada that conformed to the latest Forbidden and Limited List before the list went into effect. This is relevant because that means he was able to make Top 8 using only one copy of Servant of Endymion while people were likely still playing decks like Salamangreat with Salamangreat Miragestallio, Sky Striker with 3 copies of Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage!, and Orcust with 3 copies of Orcust Harp Horror. This is sure to be a high-powered matchup! It’s time to Duel!
