<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ebXbLfLACGM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> So this was my 1st YCS top and with of course what I think is hands down the best deck of the format, Artifacts. So we leave early as hell Friday from Jersey to get to Philly around 1:30 pm only to find out that they're not letting anyone into the venu until 3pm. Everyone was tight as hell. Anyways, I'm fuckin beastin for these Artifact cards and I eventually get everything I needed for the deck. So we pre=reg and then go get food and head back to the hotel. While in the hotel, I'm flippin between Dragons or Artifacts. I play against the Artifact mirror and realized how atrociously grindy it really is. That was all the real life testing I did with the deck. After that we stay up till like 2:30 discussin card choices and Chumlee eventually gets back to Albanese with his list. With that in mind, I still don't write out a deck list and go to bed just utterly confused about my list. We wake up around 8 am Saturday, get ready, and head out to the convention. We get there and I say fuck it and finish my list and submit it. Afterwards, I go around sayin hi to everyone, talk to Alyx (Loli) about his Artifact list, and then eventually pairings go up. Let it be known that I only won like 3 dice rolls all weekend long and that I don't remember most of my matches since they we're mostly 2-0s and only 1 match went to game 3. Round 1: Gks I lose the dice roll. G1: He opens Necrovalley shenanigans. I open double Ignition and utterly decimate him. G2: All i remember was that I got rid of all 3 Necrovalleys and I just grinded the game out where I had more advatange than him, rip NoC, NoC his face-down assailant and win from there. Record: X-0 Round 2: Artifacts This was a friend from my locals. He told me before the match started that I could have the win since his deck wasn't complete and that he'd rather have someone with a complete list compete for the top cut. I said thank you and we played a fun match. Round 3: Mythic Rulers (Adam Hutchins) I lose the dice roll. G1: He Foolishes Redox, Soul Charges Redox, specials mythic water, sets 1 card to his back row, and passes turn....that was turn 1....i was all like wtf just happened? was that a real play? lmfao I opened wiretap and other significant artifact cards to establish a board on his turn and also manage to wiretap his PWWB. G2: I'm pretty sure he sided into Hands. All i remember was that I had 101 and Corn on board and won. Apparently, I was his only loss during swiss. Record: X-0 Round 4: Spellbooks (kid I played at BK regionals last fall) I lose the dice roll G1: I don't remember much but he had a lot of advantage over me, but one ice hand later and a tower down I was able to regain advantage and savage him. G2: He opens double Star Hall with Tower. I open MalCat, Breakthrough, Sanctum, etc. I set those three in which he attacks into. I chain Sanctum and then chain MalCat to make all his shit miss timing. From there I pretty much won. Record: X-0 Round 5: Mythic Rulers I win the dice roll G1: This game was fucking awesome. it was just back and forth the entire time. We both had answers for everything but eventually I was able to Moralltach his Leo and win from there. G2: I don't remember much, other than him being really low in life when time was called. I didn't win because of time but because I was able to push for game the following turn. Record: x-0 Round 6: Traptrix Hands (dem Asian twins again) I lose the dice roll. G1: He opens Myrmeleo, searches TTHN, and utterly savages me the next turn when he summons Dyna. I do manage to get rid of it but then he summons T-King and trys to call Call his dyna back and makes me waste an Ignition on it. I wasn't able to draw a single hand and I lose. G2: The same thing pretty much happens again where I couldn't draw any monsters to normal and his Dyna pushes my shit in :( Record: X-1 Round 7: CCD Thunderbird Fagifacts (Ross Nappi) I lose the dice roll. This kid a complete and utter tool bag. He's the one that Dalton got into an argument with round 10 and will most likely get banned because of. Fuck this kid. G1: He starts off with 3 or 4 set summons CCD and resolves it. At this point I was like fuck, CCD artifacts are gunna push my shit in and I'll be X-2. CCD is too good in the mirror; resolving even just one puts you so far ahead of your opponent. Eventually, he was able to build up more card advantage than me and win. G2: it was pretty much the same thing, except he was a total dick about it. Also WHO THE FUCK KEEPS ARTIFACT SCYTHE IN AGAINST THE MIRROR??? Fuck this unconventional prick. Record: X-2 Round 8: Madolche (Andrew) I win the dice roll G1: He wasn't able to get any of his Madolche combos off due to the disruptive nature of Artifacts. G2: He resolves trap stun on me but little did he know my hand was aids and the only real trap i had down was Wiretap. I Maxx Ced but he pushed through it. G3: This went into time where I was 5500 LP above him and he just could not generate enough monster presence to do that much damage. Not to mention I had double Black Horn face down for anything he wanted to make. Anjelly's lingering effect is such a fuckin bitch to deal with. Record: X-2 Round 9: Bujins I won the dice roll G1: I open pretty fucking nutty and disrupt all his plays including Moralltaching his Yamato. He loses so much advantage and scoops. G2: He sets a monster and 3 backrow and passes. I set a hand and 4 backrow and pass. He sack HONEST for The End of Anubis to which i said "wow, madd props for siding that but shit I have the Warning for it". Thank fucking god I had the warning for it. From there I was able to make Zenmaioh and rape his board and proceed to win. Record: X-2 So that was the end of Day 1. I finished as a high X-2 in 40th place. We go out to Applebees to eat and then head back to the hotel at like 2:30 am and I knock the fuck out. Day 2, we get up at 7 am, get ready and leave by 7:40, and get there around 8am. They let us in like a half hour later and then start Round 10 at 9 am. Round 10: Spellbooks I lose the dice roll. G1: He opens magi, tower, 2 set and passes. I look at my hand and tell myself I can grind the fuck outta this game and take down his tower and his advantage. Eventually i do just that because of the Hands and because he decides to Preistess pop my backrow which was a Beagalltach and to which I was able to pop my Moralltach and pop his Priestess. After that I pretty much won :) G2: Almost the same thing happened, except this time he popped a face-down Ice hand to which i destroyed his Tower and made it miss timing after bringin out Fire Hand. I was able to grind out the game a little further and make him put himself under Reckless because he needed to regain some sort of card advantage. Even after resolving double Reckless, he wasn't able to do shit. I won this match shortly after that. Record: X-2 Round 11: Bujins I lose the dice roll G1: He sets Sinyou and 3 backrow. I was able to summon a Hand, beat over the Sinyou, and rape his board. Won this game. G2: All i remember is that I had a Called Moral and I summoned Myrmeleo, searched bottomless, set a few and passed. Apparently he opened triple Hirume and drew into Yamato the turn after i set Bottomless. So he specials Hirume, and I bottomless thinking he doesn't really have another play. Little did I know that he had another Hirume and then he normal summoned Yamato. He attacked over Myrmeleo, set another to his back row, dumped Hare, and passed. His board at this point was Tenki, 2 backrow, Yamato, and Hirume. I draw for turn which turned out to be the best draw ever. I have a Moral from Call and an Ignition set. I drew Diarrhea (Dionaea) which is normally aids, but at this point I had a Myrmeleo in grave and it was the best thing to ever happen. So I ignition his backrow and it was bottomless. Then I summoned Diarrhea get back myrmeleo, pop his other backrow which was a compulse that he chained to Moral. At that point I was like FUCK YESS!!!! I win!!!! He was at 1100 LP. I overlayed both traptrix monsters and made Heartlandraco for game. Record: X-2 So I finish 11 rounds of swiss with a 9-2 record and await the final standings. So they announce the standings and I was beyond ecstatic when I heard my name called at 25th place. This was my first YCS top and a great start to the road to Nats. Top 32: Geargia (my boy Andrew Paller) Why the fuck did I have to play my worst matchup in Top 32???? I lose the dice roll nonetheless G1: He just had way too much advantage and my mindset completely changed and i became like hella depressed when I wasn't able to pop shit. Not to mention i made a misplay and I can't forgive myself for it. He was able to generate more field presence than I was and I outright lost. G2: He pretty much did the same thing again but this time he had the Wiretap for my bottomless and he had the Black Horn for my Zenmaioh. He disrupted my plays and was able to move on to Top 16. So I end the tournament with my first YCS top and a cool Giant Hand mat. I definitely outplayed most of my opponents all weekend long and I only went to 1 game 3. I was happy with the outcome and hope to do better at Nats. For now I'll just continue practicing and see what the Meta turns into. I enjoyed going to this tournament with all my boys, hanging out with my boys from Montreal, as well as topping with Mike Albanese, Nizar Sarhan, Ned Salkovitch, MIke Kinsley, etc who are all from our local area. it was nice to see a good amount of us from the same locals in the Top cut.
