    Great match again, Matt! That game 1 was probably one of the best games of ygo I've played. It was nice seeing and hanging out with you. :) Congrats on the top! :D

    I've been testing a small shaddoll engine(1 dragon, 1 beast, 2 fusion) and it's been working out great. Even when you draw beast it's insane t1 if you can drop valk and tribute them off to draw 3. Their levels are also beneficial when making cycle plays and you find yourself being able to drop trishula easier. Daigusto can just put them back again to make fusion live. For the mirror match we have a form of lock in our main decks for g1. Summoning gungnir/claos then making anoya is strong. It restricts them from being able to ju stall, so if they don't have a board wipe it's almost impossible for them to win.It obviously isn't better than making a djinn lock since you can't protect it(just like the vanitys fiend argument.) Due to this issue I wanted to bring up forbidden lance again. It isnt a combo piece so it contributes to bricking, but it's the only way to make sure the lock doesn't get disrupted. Not too bad against other decks either(BA, tellar).

    I was standing there the entire time watching that match between nick and Matt, I have to say Matt played pretty okay. Nick didn't play the greatest either(seeing as he's the only one I really play test with because we don't have anyone in the area that plays and I know what he's capable of.) Obviously Matt let that game 2 slip away, but in all fairness he took about 5 minutes for turn and had more than enough time to realize how to not fuck up lethal. If anything, mike, you give him less credit than he actually deserves and its all because of some stupid ass post he made a few years ago while he was still in high school. I walked by you and heard you laughing because nick got 17th place. It was mature as fuck of Matt to apologize to nick and if anything, you owe him the apology for being so damn rude about him bubbling. He didn't hear it, but I did. You and Matt are best friends, Nick and I are best friends. I'm sure you would feel some type of way if Matt was in nicks shoes and someone else was making a joke out of it. tl;dr Nicks a decent player and he usually doesn't do as well or go to as many events as you guys do. He played a good tournament and as did Matt. Congratulations on the top, mike. Even though you lost out, I'm not going to sit here and sing a song about it.  I never made any comments about Nick or Matt's plays during the match, I actually wasn't even watching it lol. I just commented on how Matt didn't take the match seriously, for whatever reason. I will admit that I did laugh, or at least make a comment about Nick getting 17th, but that was because me and Matt previously talked about how "He would definitely feel better if Nick got 17th after losing to him." As for the jokes entirely, nobody made more jokes when i got 17th the previous weekend than me. It happens. I am sorry I offended you/your friend with my actions and words. Also, nice seeing you buddy after so long haha. It was nice seeing you also! I always look forward to it at events. All "beef" aside, if it was a joke then we didn't realize it at the time. He was salty and I was upset for him that he didn't make top cut. I don't mean to make a big deal out of it, but I just want us to get along on a mutual level because I do respect you and Matt as players and people. Good luck at nats guys, I wont be able to make it. I'll see you in RI shortly after. :)

    Thanks! Yeah, I was there! I had a round 1 feature vs giorlando. You should've said hey. :P I'll tell him you said hello as well.
  6. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Yeah no hard feelings. Like any yugioh player I just got a little tight because I got shit on but I got over it. It was nice meeting you though!
  7. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Scars never heal. I don't think they ever will.
  8. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Thanks! I didn't play any artifacts, but from I was told I had a pretty good matchup against them. I was still afraid of them since it seemed like a very strong deck and I had no experience. I was complaining about how I shouldn't have sided black horn, but looking at game 3 in round 9, if it would've been any other card I would have lost. So I guess I was content about my list. Go zen match was pretty awful as well playing no dragons (which is what it was for mostly) that would have been 2 different cards if I had to go back and do it all again.
  9. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Likewise man, thanks again. I'll catch you at the next event I go to whenever that may be!
  10. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Thanks man. :)

    Congrats dude! Was nice seeing and talking to you throughout the event. It's Chris btw.
  12. YCS Philly

    Congrats man, sorry about the top 32 match again. Pretty shitty you got paired against the only water. -.-
  13. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    Thanks everyone! Yeah we did play round 8, you were one of the two gear losses I had. I wish we could've had a better match in top 32 seeing it was a feature match. Sorry I drew so well! But it happens sometimes.
  14. YCS Philadelphia Top 8

    So I wanted to take a vacation from work for the weekend to drive out to Philly and play a card game. I tested mermail at first then decided to test dragons a little bit because I thought they'd be just as strong or even stronger than water. I decided to play water since that's what I was comfortable with and it didn't brick as hard at times like dragons could. I don't get any sleep Thursday night which is whatever because it's not like we play on Friday anyway. I test some more with my fried Jake since it was his first real big event and he was a little nervous. I wait for my nig Danny V. (Evolution) to get to my house so we can smoke and meet up with prom boy and his girlfriend thing. We get some breakfast, hop in the car and we're on our way to bust some ass. Once we get to the convention center I try getting a few last minute cards that I need and before I can some Asian decided to spit on a really big black guy. As he gets choked out on the wall, fellow ygo players watch, laugh and record. They clear out the convention center so we just go get some food and I end up going back later to pre register. Dan and I play test a little bit and he decides to get some sleep like a little bitch. Once I'm done filling out my deck list I just pass out high as fuck. I'll try to remember as much as I can about my matches and I'm writing this on my phone so I apologize if this sucks. Round 1: Evilswarm Game 1: He doesn't make an ophion the whole game so I drop a bunch of big ass dudes and he can't win. Game 2: He opens ophion but I just undine + infantry that shit and I quickly win. 1-0 Round 2: Water Game 1: He wins the die roll and opens undine to dump tidal. I open my undine to dump dragoons for megalo and crash. I eventually make a Leo that he clear with his Leo but then I resolve a late game soul charge to bring it back and he has no fight left. Game 2: I bait out his gaios negate and make a big eye to steal it right after so I end up winning by setting some protection. 2-0 Round 3: Fist hands Game 1: He uses tenki and I think I'm playing bujin so I roll my eyes a bit and he searches a bear so I'm like oh lol ok. He sets 3 and passes after that. I drop a megalo with a few marksman and hit like a mirror force and wiretap. He summons bear, pops megalo and then attack into my sphere. He uses tensu and summoned wolf bark to make a dweller with I just swing over with a teus and he can't catch up after. Game 2: I blow him out with marksman pops and my board commitment is too much. 3-0 Round 4: Geargia (Nathaniel Laithe) I notice my deck is missing as soon as I sit down, knowing that I'm at a 1370 person event I'm pretty sure it's gone and none of those cards are mine. Thinking my trip is about over I go to he lost and found and they surprisingly have my deck. I sit down with 37 minutes on the clock and he doesn't want to dick me and give me a game loss which was really cool of him! Game 1: He sets armor and 3 backrow. Idk what he's playing but my hand sucks and I know my wing blast gets a wiretap to the dick and I lose to 3 gigant. Game 2: He resolves geargia gear and has a wiretap for my black horn. Still no marksman in sight so I can't clear any of his stuff. 3-1 Round 5: Water Game 1: I open stronger than he does and I crash my Leo into his at some point then make a dracosack in mp2. He soul charges to make a big eye and take it. He makes lavalval chain I dump tidal. I top glacia with 5 waters and drop it like a boss. I play my held soul charge to make a big eye to steal his, take his sack and tribute it to kill his chain. I set bottomless and when he tries to make a play I just use it on whatever. Game 2: He creature swaps me his linde and then I torrential him later thinking that it's my linde. He reminds me it's his and after I sphere for something dead and try to activate linde which causes me to lose. I see there's 15 seconds on the clock and I suggest game 3 and he agrees. Game 3: I just stick a gaios turn 1 with soul charge and some traps and he can't clear it so I beat him down and win with more life. 4-1 Round 6: Infernity Game 1: I open maxx c and he has a really good opening. He stops a little after he makes a lavalval chain and I end up just picking away his stuff with infantrys and marksman and I win. Game 2: I open up 2 maxx c 2 controller and a dragon ice. I maxx c and he goes nuts and makes a board of chain and dweller with like two sets and one of then being a dead barrier since he didn't leave a dude out to use it so I blow him out. 5-1 Round 7: Water Kid was really chill, I watched a few of his games in the qualifier on day 2 which I think he ended up winning. Game 1: I draw maxx c and force him to stop. I open with undine to dump dragoons and pitch a pike and marksman for megalo to bait out what I think is a set sphere. I soul charge to make chain dumping tidal, steal his with big eye and make an angineer and he can't beat me after that. Game 2: I open up with 2 maxx c and I use them both so I drop gorz after he realizes he'll lose if he can't kill me, so I just win next turn. 6-1 Round 8: Geargia Game 1: I open double infantry and megalo to his set armor and 4. So I don't win lol. Game 2: He sides in nightmares and debunks and draws most of them with his armor on board and the advantage is too real. 6-2 Round 9: Evilswarm Game 1: First turn ophion set 5 yo. Game 2: I open soul charge and stick an Alucard late game in order to blow up the sets he has. Game 3: Turn 1 ophion set 5 again. I open teus, 2 marksman, black horn and salvage. My 6th card is mst. I set horn and salvage and pass. He detaches his second material to search a pandemic. He summons kerk and tries to make a second but I black horn and...he has no answer. I slowly start to bust that ass shortly after that to make it into day two at 39th after Swiss. 7-2 Day 2. Round 10: Evols Game 1: He resolves that new trap they have and makes a solde that I can't beat and I lose. Game 2: I side into the hands but I win before he can even see them. Game 3: I don't draw any of the hands but it's whatever because he doesn't even make a laggia at all. I pop his set westlos with multiple marksman and I get it. 8-2 Round 11: Madolche (Aaron Riker) Game 1: He opens horrible with a mew and 4 sets. I think it's gears so I summon undine and pop with marksman to see he's playing madolche. He summons a gelato and uses ticket to swing over undine. I summon pike to pop the ticket with infantry and he can't get anything going. Game 2: He summons magilene and searches angelly and sets only a backrow, so I'm thinking his hand consists of all monster. I mst the backrow and drop a megalo to kill the magilene and set 3. He summons angelly and it gets breakthrough skilled. He uses instant fusion to make ark but I have the wing blast for it and he just scoops it up. Really cool guy, sorry it went the way it did. Top 32: Geargia https://yugiohblog.konami.com/?p=17642 I drew really well and completely savaged him. Considering my only losses were to geargia in the event, I was hoping I didn't lose a third time to one of my easiest match ups. Top 16: My draft deck is awful. I make a ton of misplays and read things wrong but still somehow managed to 2-0 him. He also tries to argue life with me at some point after we go into time and I'm up by like 4000. I give him the extra 800 putting him at 1700 since I can't remember exactly where it came from and he was being a dick, but I'm too far ahead after turns. Then he tries arguing him having more turns with the judge lol. Top 8: Corey Roca This was also a feature but I got raped. He had a ton of modifiers in his deck and I couldn't do anything after he said "damage step" every single turn. It was an awesome trip and vacation. Other than doing well, I had a ton of fun and met some chill ass people like I always do at events. Congrats to everyone who topped and did well. Since I'm on my phone I'm not going to post a list but I'm sure you can find it if you look for it!
  15. Dragon Ruler - Discussion

    What are your guys' thoughts on miracle dig alongside burial? It gives us another card that isn't burial and if we mill one for kuribandit but want to take something more critical like a soul charge, we still have the other one. It also allows us to have a lot more dragon food and gives us another option to put back our banished dragons after using them to search. Gorz or even trag seem pretty cute too. They have good synergy with soul charge and if we have maxx c in the mirror match dropping a trag and stealing the on board dragon next turn seems decent. Gorz also gives another seven star target that isn't a dragon if we happen to draw it when we can established board and don't really need it.
