Wake up at 5:45 to someone knocking on my window. Apparently, my alarm failed to go off and I have to get ready in 10 minutes. I end up going to the regional with Alex Bunts and Brian Perez and it takes 3 hours to get to Tallahassee. Once I get there, I see it is a pretty small regional, only around 75 people. I decide to play Gladbeasts since I knew nobody would be playing them. Rounds are about to begin so I make my final changes to my deck.
Round 1: Sean Livingston vs. Some Kid with Lightsworns
Game 1: Bad hands+lightsworn swarm=gg, dumb
Game 2: Gyzarus does his thing and I take it easily
Game 3: Rescue Cat for the win!!
Round 2: Sean Livingston vs. Tim Roberts (Blackwings)
Game 1: Gyzarus and Trap Stun owns face.
Game 2: Opening hand was a test tiger and all spells. Blackwings just **** on my lifepoints.
Game 3: I would rather not discuss this one.
Cool guy though and he ended up making top 8 in the end
Round 3: Sean Livingston vs. Some Kid with Sixsams
Game 1: Trap Stun for the win!
Game 2: Gyzarus says sup
Round 4: Sean Livingston vs. Some dude with Monarchs
Game 1: Game loss. Apparently, a nobleman of crossout and waboku were in my deck. lame
Game 2: Blackrose and Trap Stun gave me instant advantage.
Game 3: His morphing jar gave me instant advantage.
Round 5: Sean Livingston vs. Richard Clarke (Dragons)
Game 1: Oppression wrecks
Game 2: Game went back and forth for a while until I trap stunned his crush card and then gained momentum next turn
definately appreciated the match. dragons was a sweet deck to see.
Round 6: Sean Livingston vs. Luis Zambrana
Game 1: Gladbeasts wreck blackwings. easy matchup
Game 2: Gladbeasts do their thing.
Round 7: Sean Livingston vs. another kid with blackwings
Game 1: Blackrose and Trap Stun for instant advantage
Game 2: Rescue Cat and Gyzarus for the win. I had complete control of the entire duel.
Sean Livingston vs. John Gill (Blackwings)
Honestly, it didn't matter to me if I won the match. So, I just messed around.
Game 1: Swarming with gladbeasts does not beat blackwing swarm. lol
Game 2: Brain control for the win after a solemn.
Game 3: DSF is good YGO.
--Brian for making Top 8
--Alex for getting his invite
