Finals Feature Match: David Mendoza vs. Clifton Land II

September 22nd, 2019

And it all comes down to this!  David Mendoza from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ended the Swiss rounds in 9th place and has a Deck with Danger! monsters and Danger! support cards like Danger! Zone and Danger! Response Team! along with Gizmek Orochi, the Serpentron Sky Slasher and Gren Maju Da Eiza, while his opponent, Clifton Land II from Kentucky entered the playoffs as the 2nd seed with Lunalight Orcust, a combo Deck capable of setting up Summon Limit backed by Knightmare Gryphon locking down Monster effects.  The winner will take home an Ultra Rare version of the YCS Prize Card Duel Link Dragon, the Duel Dragon, but whatever happens here will certainly be one for the books!  Either Lunalight Orcust will take its first YCS win in North America, or Gren Maju Da Eiza will take the win after taking second place at YCS Portland just a few weeks ago.  For the final time this weekend, it’s time to Duel!

Almost every competitor remaining in the tournament has had a Feature Match today, one of the exceptions being Austin Colling, who traveled here this weekend from Ohio.  With Cyber Dragon variants all over the Top 8 bracket we decided to check in again with David Mendoza, the last Gren Maju Duelist left in the tournament.  In his Top 32 Feature Match this morning Mendoza cleaved through his opponent in minutes; would luck be on his side once again, or was Austin Colling about to punch his ticket to the Top 4?
