So I've been pretty pumped since this event was announced since I live in Washington and I've never been to YCS before. Only even went to my first regional last month in Seattle, lots of familiar faces. I decided to run Dark World's as I'm pretty comfortable with them right now and didn't have the time to dedicate to mastering a new deck. I ran a control build similar to Calvin Tahan's. 0 Dragged Down, 2 Raven, 1 Veiler, BLS, DAD, 2 Tragoedia (I had been testing this recently and decided to go with them over Spirit Reaper, but Trag really didn't do much for me at YCS, probably should have left Reapers in). So I'm supposed to stay with my friend who lives 30 minutes from Tacoma, and last minute the night before her mom decides that she doesn't want me to stay because "it's a bad weekend". I get up there Friday night, register, only pull a Forbidden Dress. I leave to go meet my friend and she's like fuck it, I'm just going to tell my mom you're staying. lol.
R1 vs Inzektors (Michael Stibbins)
G1: He gains advantage by opening Hornet and Inzekting all my shit.
G2: He opens Hornet again, I draw my sided Skill Drain. He summons Dragonfly, I chain Skill Drain, he chains Lance to pop my Skill Drain with Hornet, loops up a field and drops DAD for GG.
R2 vs Wind-Ups
G1: He opens with 5 set and TKRO. I wittle everything away and win.
G2: Pretty much the same, just pop shit with Grapha and win easily.
R3 vs Monarchs
G1: Nothing too interesting, I win.
G2: Same as G1.
R4 vs Chaos Dragons
G1: He opens broke and kills me fast.
G2: I open broke and kill him fast.
G3: He summons Darkflare and drops BLS. I have Veiler in grave with Snoww on-board and BLS in hand. If he attacks my Snoww I'm golden. He had Reborn in hand to Summon Lightpulsar to OTK me. All 3 games in less than 20 minutes.
R5 vs Orichalcos/Geartown/Malefics
G1: He gets Gadgeltron and not much else out. I pop it with Grapha and win relatively quickly.
G2: He opens Orichalcos and Malefic Cyber End and I immediately take 4500. I keep setting shit so I don't take damage and eventually I get Gates up over Orichalcos and pop Cyber End with Grapha. He summons another Cyber End, I compulse it so he has to remove his 3rd Cyber End and pop it with another Grapha next turn and end the game shortly after.
R6 vs Chaos Dragons
G1: I open terrible and after a turn or two I'm forced to Card Destruction 5 cards, none of which are Dark Worlds. I can't recover from the bad start and I lose.
G2: He gets a nice field of dragons and DAD. I lose.
So I'm 3-3 and figured there is no point in continuing so I drop to trade and watch people play.
Overall it was a lot of fun and it was nice meeting people. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to more events in the future and put up a better showing.
