Seven Days: DCS Juneau

Recommended Posts

+mmf    23370

This weekend we have the first DuelistGroundz Championship Series in almost three years, just as competition is beginning to heat up in the Winter 2018 War League season. DCS Juneau will be a Goat Format event, and will be classified as a Regional by GoatStats. In addition to the prize pot, the winner at Juneau will earn a seat in the Goat Format Winter Seasonal Playoffs, and there are many dark horses capable of taking the trophy and shaking up the rest of the season.

 

Since the conclusion of the Autumn playoffs, the DGz metagame appears to have developed in three major directions, broadly speaking: optimizing Chaos Control, optimizing Goat Control, and optimizing alt-win/combo. Even though Shining Angel ultimately won the event over Thunder Dragon, both variants of Chaos Control continue to see play, with the aggressive Morphing Jar-style Chaos Recruiter decks making a bit of a resurgence as well. Gojira's 2nd place finish at the Alpha Omega Memorial with an innovative Last Turn build also seems to have inspired a new wave of combo decks in the DGz metagame, with Noxjja slowly but surely improving his performances with Reasoning/Gate and MMF dabbling more and more in Empty Jar.

 

Following the events of the first few weeks of the season, the Seraphim and Damage Step are likely to continue vying for dominance at Juneau. The ongoing rivalry between WorldGoneMaad and the Based Loli is sure to continue, with both duelists currently registered for the event and looking to score their first GoatRank points for the year. G-sop will also be looking to make a splash at this event, hot off his clean sweep at DGz Live 211 just yesterday and eager to prove his consistency across multiple major Goat communities. Another hot narrative right now is Chevalier de Fromage's return to Goat Format, achieving Master Duelist rank for some period of time this season and continuing to show that he's a force to be reckoned with. Lastly, EVIL and Workshop for Metalworker have also been proving themselves as dark horse candidates, and both teams have multiple players capable of taking the entire event. If the top 4 of DGz Live 211, which contained representatives of four different teams, are any indication, the DCS this weekend is anyone's game.

 

Remember to keep checking in on the event's Facebook page, our Twitch channel, the Challonge bracket, and the forum thread here for live coverage of the upcoming action-packed weekend, as DCS Juneau is slated to be a show of high-octane dueling action you won't want to miss!
