    These prizes are hilarious. 400 points could get you a flight to an argcs, or just 20 fucking packs of sleeves haha. Also, not a big fan of being able to get byes so easily now.

  7. Top 64 Nationals

    I think it's really unfortunate yet kind of funny that you had to play Brandon again. I went to his locals for an entire summer, and to this day have not played him once in tourney. A good read, and congrats on your top.
  8. Top 64 NAWCQ - T.G. Madolche

    I built the deck with idea of always having the combo, filling in the spells/traps with cards that make sure plays go through and a standard trap line-up for defense. This was in anticipation of monster-based meta decks such as lightsworns and sylvans, which can be easily beaten by a resolved tiaramisu if their initial plays are stopped by a hand trap. Had I known so many HAT decks would be represented I definitely would have made some changes, but luckily most of my matchups were what I anticipated.   Haha thanks, and I knew you weren't a bad guy because Laith said you weren't and I have a lot of faith in him. It was also nice talking and getting to know you throughout the weekend, and I'm glad you topped too.   As far as what I would have run differently, that is hard to answer because I realized how lucky Nate, Diego, and I were as far as our matchups went. Nate decided to main trap stuns and more traps, which worked out really well for him because he played against so many geargia and hat decks. Diego was siding 3 cycle readers, which both Nate and I advised him against because that card is really only good against his easiest matchups. As it turned out, he played against 5 Lightsworn decks and 2 Bujins throughout the weekend and he won because of the readers. I was maindecking for Sylvans the most, taking out traps for the extra maxx C's. Luckily, I played against 4 sylvan matchups and won them because of it. Other than that, there is nothing I particularly regretted siding or not siding.
  9. Top 64 NAWCQ - T.G. Madolche

    Rode out to Detroit with Nate Forte and some other friends from Cleveland, staying at a friend’s uncle’s house which was really nice. Nate and I had been working closely together on T.G. Madolche since Anjelly was announced, and played very similar builds. I had also been tutoring Diego Haltom to play the deck for around two hours a day the week leading up to the event, and all three of us managed to make top 64.   Since ARG Philly, I had decided to main the two Maxx C’s and take wiretap out of the main in anticipation of Sylvans, which I predicted would be one of the most popular decks and my hardest matchup. Interestingly enough, I had to play against 4 Sylvans day 1 while Nate and Diego barely played any. Admittingly, the main decked maxx definitely won me several game 1’s, and I didn’t lose a single match to Sylvans. The build I played was as follows:     Have a really hard time remembering some of my matchups day 1, but have recorded them to the best of my ability.   [Round 1] [Madolche vs Madolche]   Game 1: He wins the die roll and opens with anjelly. I have the tiramisu combo with lance in my open and win from there. Game 2: I flip trap stun when he has two backrow, but because I’m paranoid about book of moon I chain full house to blow up my field spell and set mst. They were both traps but he couldn’t come back from my tiramisu play. Current record: 1-0   [Round 2] [Madolche vs Sylvan]   Game 1: Have the maxx for his first turn lonefire play with hootcake in hand, and win from the advantage. Game 2: I open something like double crow, double veiler, spell striker messengelato. When he goes to soul charge for Sage and Hermitree he complains that I have the double crow even though I negged. Eventually draw into anjelly, but he has the rivalry. I just start beating him down with a messengelato and a spell striker and win without using the second veiler.    Current record: 2-0   [Round 3] [Madolche vs Sylvan]   Game 1: Lost. Game 2: Won.   Game 3: This game he locks me down with a rivalry for so long that I’m left with 15 cards in deck without having drawn one out of the three mst. He plays charity without sylvans in hand and spins his 5 card hand back to deck. Eventually I top the space and he doesn’t have the second rivalry.    Current record: 3-0   [Round 4] [Madolche vs Madolche]   This round was funny because I get paired with someone from my locals, whom I knew wasn’t an exceptionally good player. He wins the roll and I see he’s playing the mirror, then he plays tenki and I realize it’s the SUPER mirror. I ask him if he copied the build Nate used to win ARGCS DC and he laughs and says pretty much. He get’s 2-0’ed fairly quickly and is a good sport about it, saying he didn’t expect to beat me since I was much more familiar with the build.   Current record: 4-0   [Round 5] [Madolche vs Darkworld]   Game 1: Won. Game 2: He opens up deck dev and I open double messengelato.   Game 3: Game goes into time and I misplay by not reading dark smog and banishing anjelly off hootcake instead of a level 3, which he banishes with smog. Would have had a leviar acid golem play to get over grapha and attack for game, but he makes giant grinder the next turn and burns me for game instead.    Current record: 4-1   [Round 6] [Madolche vs Sylvan]   Can’t really remember anything about this match, besides that I had the handtraps for his opening plays.    Current record: 5-1   [Round 7] [Madolche vs Bujin]   This match was on some bullshit because we get deck checked and I get a game loss for writing “Number 101: Blackship of Corn” on my decklist. Completely my fault I know, but it seems I’m always getting game losses for things like showing up late and this is the first I’ve ever lost a match because of it.   Game 2: He loses because he didn’t power shuffle after the deck check, and all his cards are organized by type. He shows me a hand of double turtle double hare and his deck has 3 kaisers stacked together. Game 3: He opens with Yamato and Kaiser, with a decree the next turn. I played my ass off this game, but just have a hard time dealing with it because I never draw mst. He drops majestys fiend on me with an xyz on board, and I have to go into barkion to answer it. Next turn I normal hootcake and make a tiaramisu play by crashing hoot with anjelly and ticket out. We go into time, and I spin his XYZ and decree for fear of the bujincarnation. Unfortunately this made his set fiendish live, and with a fiendished Tiaramisu under Kaiser I couldn’t do any damage.    Current record: 5-2     [Round 8] [Madolche vs Sylvan]   Game 1: He wins the die roll and sets mushroomo, flipping it next turn to mill princessprout and cherubsprout. He activates sage in hand as link 3, and I chain maxx C to draw 3 cards and win from there. Game 2: This game there is an issue when my opponent uses felgrand on my hootcake which I’d specialed off anjelly, saying it would be destroyed by battle. The judge I call over sides with me, but my opponent calls for a head judge who rules in his favor saying anjelly was a continuous effect. I lose because of it, which really put me on tilt because this kind of thing always happens to me whether it’s a locals or a premier event.   Game 3: I open anjelly, warwolf, and the field spell which lets me put leviar on board and get a ticket search off the field spell. On his turn I veiler his lonefire, which he tributes and soul charges back. I have the warning too, and he scoops it up.    Current record: 6-2   [Round 9] [Madolche vs Mermail]   Game 1: Won Game 2: Lost.   Game 3: Have the torrential for one of his pushes, and when we go into time I make acid golem with spell striker and warwolf to creature swap for his tidal. He can’t get over my monsters summoned off anjelly, and it burns him for game.   Current record: 7-2   [Round 10] [Madolche vs Bujin] This guy was pretty nice and recognized me from ARG Columbus, saying he played Evilswarms at the time and looked up to me for topping with them. Unfortunately I can’t remember much from the match, besides that we went into time and I barely won game 3.   Current record: 8-2   [Round 11] [Madolche vs FAT (Steve Silverman)] Didn’t know what Silverman looked like, but recognized the name. I’d only played against FAT a few times. Interestingly, he was the third player on the ARGCS Philly mat I played at a premier event.   Game 1: I win the die roll and open with anjelly. He tenkis into bear and gets over hootcake, and I search out anjelly off ticket. On my turn I summon anjelly off mewl. He ignitions my set bottomless to search bealg, and then flips the second ignition to pop it. At this point I realize he cheated because he couldn’t activate ignition on my backrow when he had 5 sets, but the judge ruled it as an accepted gamestate because I saw his second ignition. Another issue comes up when he brings out the bealg and flips two moraltechs he had set without waiting for a response. When I try to breakthrough his bealg, he says it was too late and that I didn’t say anything when he asked (I did not remember him asking). Judge rules in my favor. I play tenki to search out warwolf and he answers my hootcake. Then I play mind control on his bear and use it to pop bealg and xyz with it into 101, winning shortly after. Game 2: He opens up with myrmeleo and set 4. He answers my anjelly, then flips full house on my  endphase later on to clear my backrow, bring out 2 Moraltechs, and attack for game next turn with a normal summon.   Game 3: I open up with double messengelato but draw the anjelly as my 6th. Go into hootcake and special anjelly, set 2 trap stuns and pass. He opens up with tenki and clears my monsters with bear. Next turn I draw into warwolf and summon messengelato. He flips sanctum when I go to crash with bear, and I trap stun. Next turn he summons another bear, attacks, and searches out wolfberk. On my turn I topdeck into hootcake and flip the second trap stun. Summon hootcake with no monsters in grave, and pitch D.D crow to banish his only bear. Go into tiramisu and leviar, adding anjelly off ticket and spinning back 1 of two backrow + bear to make the wolfberk in hand dead. On his turn he summons fire hand and starts crashing, leaving me with no cards on field. He’s at 3100 lp at this point, so I go leviar off of anjelly and special back his bear to search my tenki and attack for game.   Current record: 9-2   [Top 64] [Madolche vs Lightsworn Ruler]   Game 1: I open pretty good with anjelly, warwolf, and the field spell. I go into hootcake then leviar to bring back anjelly, and play chateu to get a ticket search. On his second turn he otks me by specialing JD to clear the board, specialing redox to banish wyvern and add + special Diablos, then normaling a wyvern to attack for game. Game 2: He uses xyz universe on my tiramisu and leviar, but I have the torrent for his draco and a follow up tiramisu later on.   Game 3: I open really dead with mewl, the field spell, spell striker, light pris, torrential, and black horn. He sets wyvern on his first turn, and on his second turn I torrent when he summons raiden. He has the lance, and I chain light pris to his wyvern effect. For some reason he forgets he can mill with raiden, and just attacks for 900. On my turn time is called, and we only get 3 turns in top 64. I decide to set mewl and pass, and black horn his black rose the next turn. He specials a redox and sits on it. I have to game him the next turn and topdeck the anjelly. He has one card set which I knew was xyz universe because he set it his first turn and it wasn’t decree or lance. Unfortunately I have no spells for striker and am forced to make tiramisu and play into his xyz universe. Later I realized I would have won if I just set or normaled spell striker, which would have allowed me to go into alucard and acid golem to attack for game.     I felt I misplayed an unforgiving number of times at the tourney, punting several matches while Nate watched. Especially since I’d previously took pride in not misplaying at past premier events. I attributed this a few reasons:   1.    Madolches were far less linear than the previous decks I’d been playing (Evilswarms, worms, etc), and taking too long to think of my plays led me to lose in time. 2.    I was very unused to playing in time, which almost never happened in previous events. My mentality was not accustomed to making optimal plays under those circumstances, and I was left a bit on tilt.   Even though I missed out on getting Giant Hand, I still had a great weekend and was happy that both Nate and Diego were able to move on to top 32. Also got to meet up with a lot of friends I hadn’t seen in some time, and I’m pretty satisfied with top 64 knowing I was lucky enough to topdeck out of several games and make day 2.   Slops: -No Giant Hand -Lost to misplays -Lost to deck check/bad rulings -Wasted $12 on a regional flight because we had to leave in the middle   Props: -Always had the maxx/veiler -Won vs my hardest matchups -Made top 64 with my friends

      What was the name of the Head Judge who said this? Better question: what was the color in his uniform? It was red and black, and the judge was white and rather tall. The original judge I had called over wasn't sure about the ruling himself, but ruled in my favor. The opponent called an appeal and the head judge came by, ruling that anjelly was a continuous effect which hootcake would be unaffected by due to felgrand. Though I still ended up winning the match, it's always scary knowing that these things can affect your performance and that it's totally out of your control.
  11. NAWCQ 2014

    On a side note, I lost a game because the head judge ruled that my opponent could use felgrand on my hootcake summoned by Anjelly to make it destroyed by battle. Much disappointment when it comes to the quality of konami judges, though there are good ones of course.      I also got a game loss because I wrote "Number 101: Blackship of Corn" on my decklist, but that's my own fault.
  12. NAWCQ 2014

    Yeah, Diego played my build which used spell striker, ROTA, and construction train signal red. Nate played pretty much the same deck with those cards swapped out for more traps.
  13. NAWCQ 2014

    Nate Forte, Diego Haltom, and I all made top 64 with pretty much the same Madolche build. I'd been tutoring Diego to play the deck for the past few weeks, but he ended up exceeding my expectations and doing better than me. Kind of disappointed I punted my top 64 match in time, but good weekend overall.
