29/12/2012 Active Game Collections Tournament

Deck: Wind-Ups (Coat of Arms/Invoker/Warrior Build)

Javier (Chaos Dragons) OXO

Game 1: Forgot how I won.

Game 2: I think I got beat down by Lightpulsar Dragon.

Game 3: He Dualitied into Maxx “C” while I had TGU+Shark in hand. Luckily, I topped into Dimensional Fissure. I opened D.Fissure and baited out his Maxx “C” Won next turn with TGU+Shark.

Jeff (Ninja Chaos Dragons) OXX

Game 1: I think I won with Magi/TGU + Shark.

Game 2: I think I got owned by his Messier 7 taking back a Maxx “C”

Game 3: He summoned Hanzo and searched for Super Transformation and set it. I couldn’t do much and eventually he won by tributing his Ryko and Lightpulsar for REDMD and reviving Lighpulsar.

Wesley (Sacred) OO

Game 1: I had too many backrows and he couldn’t summon any of his XYZ monsters.

Game 2: He went first and summoned Constellar Pollux, I summoned Wind-Up Rabbit and took direct attacks from Pollux for about 4 turns until I managed to stall into Magician+Shark along with Reborn and Shark. I did the first Magician+Shark combo before Zenmaity and stuff and baited out the Torrential Tribute. I then used Reborn to bring back Magician and did the MagiShark combo again. Ending with a field of Papilloperative, Zenmaity, Rabbit, Magician and Rabbit (Somehow, I was reading a Mirror Force for I don’t know what reason)(Meant to go into Shock Master but I forgot that my 3rd Magician was in the Graveyard after I brought out my Rabbit with Zenmaity’s Effect)

I set Mind Crush and used it without noticing that I had no cards in hand to use it. We later both noticed, so we continued with the game.

Next turn I just attacked with all of my monsters for game. Really bad play from me this game, from the Shock Master play to the Mind Crush.

Daniel (Verz Rabbit) XX

Game 1: I think I got beat down easily this game.

Game 2: I drew like 2 Magicians along with 2 Tour Guides. I set the Magician and I think he didn’t dare to attack being afraid of Snowman/Sangan. I then drew into my third Magician and I set it again. I finally drew into my Wind-Up Rabbit which I summoned. Followed by flipping up both of my set Magicians. Slight misplay from me where I Banished Rabbit and made the Magician’s Effects CL1 and CL2, which in turn got punished by Maxx “C” and I was forced to bring out my two other Rabbit.

Stalled for a bit with my 2 Magicians with their 1800DEF against Daniel’s Evilswarm Castor with its 1750ATK. Until he managed to bring out Diawolf to pop my set Dust Tornado followed by a Dark Armed Dragon (Really good play from him here). He then cleared both my Magicians and started to attack me for 2800 each turn. (I had Compulsory set but I didn’t really want to use it now, hoping that he would pop it with DAD’s Effect and reading a Deck Devastation Virus from him)(This would in turn punish me in later turns where I would draw into more Monsters and get hit harder by his DDV). Next turn I drew into my Sangan, so my hand was Magician, TGU, TGU, Sangan. I eventually was forced to use the Compulse and he indeed had the DDV, I topped into two Rats the following turns and lost soon after. I drew a really terrible hand this game, but I believe I definitely could have won, if not for my misplays, so I blame myself for losing. Props to Daniel for playing so well. (He eventually won the Tournament).

Sazabi (Mermail Atlanteans) OO

Game 1: I had Magician+Shark+Storm to his one backrow. I Stormed his Abyss-Sphere and he brought out Megalo. My Magician+Shark was stopped by Effect Veiler, I didn’t play Utopia or Zenmaister to get past it, so I could only end with Maestroke flipping his Megalo F/D and a set Bottomless Trap Hole. On his turn he MSTed by BTH and tried to go for a big play, Summon Diva pull Infantry, Tribute Diva for Megalo Effect, Salvage back the Diva, Summon it and pull Marksman. Diva+Infantry for Gantetsu which I Veilered. (Note: I didn’t Veiler earlier because I was expecting Moulinglacia for some reason, and my cards in hand were quite important, Rat and something else I think) I forgot why his Marksman couldn’t get a hit in (Might have missed something out).

I forgot how, but I managed to summon Tiras+Zenmaines to clear one of his Gantetsu’s Materials and destroy his Megalo.

The following turn I made Papilloperative and turned his Gantetsu to attack position and I won from there.

Game 2: He had a set monster, I had Dimensional Fissure and Shark. Shark attacked into his Linde. I won the following turn.

 

Result:

3-2 (OXOXO)

Finished at 10th position and didn’t get into Top 8.

 

After Tournament Thoughts: 

I definitely could have played a lot better in this Tournament. Wind-Ups are extremely hard to play perfectly, but I hope I can do better in the next tournament (Need to get more IRL practice in). I have already learnt quite a lot from playing Wind-Ups and definitely can learn more.

I summoned Kristia which took back Herald of Orange Light. Controlled from there with Kristia.

Game 3: Drew too many Hyperions again with no Agents to summon it with.

Result: Scrubbed, but at least Bank helped me pay my Entry Fee.

Reflection: Lol, it seems that my hands were extremely good before playing with Bank. I opened with Earth almost every game with BOM or Herald of Orange Light to protect it. So, it was a pretty lucky day for me except for the last match.

Excel CS Christmas Team Tournament 25/12/2010

I joined the tournament with Daren and Junqi.

I decided to run Debris Plants instead of Light Hero Beat because I was expecting to play against Six Samurais and Hero Beat does not have many ways to stop them. And Debris Plants has more ways to stop them.

Anyway I didn’t get to play against any Six Samurais, instead all I played against was Blackwings.

Player 1: Junqi
Player 2: Daren
Player 3: Lauren

Match 1
VS Winson (Blackwings) XX
Game 1: My hand was dead with double Debris Dragon and no other monsters. So I just used them to struggle for a while before I died to Arms Wing and Dark Armed Dragon.
Game 2: He opened DDV on me to stop me from summoning Trishula with Spore (Level 4)+Dandylion+Ryko. Managed to Trishula him later with something else but forgot how I died later.

Team Score: OXX

Game 1: Forgot what happened.
Game 2: I discarded Sirocco with Spirit Reaper and then he summoned another one with Vayu in the graveyard while I had 1900LP.
Game 3: I got owned by Bottomless and Crevice.

Team Score: -XX

It was a 4 round swiss tournament, but we dropped out because there was no chance of winning.
