Round 8 Feature Match: Stanley Lee vs. Nikolas Konikkos

September 21st, 2019

Welcome to Round 8! While both of these competitors have 16 points and are guaranteed a Day 2 appearance, one of them is 5-1-1 with Buster Blader. This is not a drill.  Nikolas Konikkos from Markham, Ontario is our Buster Blader Duelist and once I saw his name and Deck type come up during Top Table Updates, I couldn’t not feature it. His opponent is Stanley Lee, also from Markham, Ontario, running Sky Striker. Duel Links players may know Buster Blader and the Fusion Monster Buster Blader, the Dragon Destruction Swordsman but the strategy has many more tools at its disposal in the TCG and I can’t wait to see it in action. It’s time to Duel!

We didn’t have much time for preamble so let’s just dive right into what proved to be a drama-laden Match!

Round 5 Feature Match: Deylan Pitkin vs. Hyuk Chang

September 21st, 2019

When we heard there was an undefeated Paleozoic Frog Duelist it really caught our attention.  Deylan Pitkin wound up taking a draw last round, so his record’s no longer immaculate, but we were still eager to see what kind of Frog Deck could thrive in today’s Championship metagame.  Pitkin’s from Buffalo, New York just on the other side of the Falls, so it was a short trip.

Hailing from Vaughan Ontario just north of Toronto, he’s made three World Championship appearances and countless Top Cut showings.  He’s also slowly developed a running joke involving potatoes, which is why he sometimes attends events dressed like one.  Which he’s doing today.

In a tournament filled with trendsetters Georgia’s Blair Hunter may be the most influential. Hunter’s credited by many as being the first major competitor to bring Cyber Dragons into the format, a strategy that’s quickly grown to become a major contender thanks to Hunter’s efforts and followup performances from competitors like Duy Nguyen, Calvin Chow and Ed Acepcion.
