Top 16: Anthony Eckroth vs Mario Ramos

Welcome back Alter Reality Gamers! We have a powerhouse match for you here played between Anthony Eckroth’s Evilswarms and Mario Ramos’s Mermails! Ophion is definitely a contender in this matchup, being able to lock Mermails out of their high level monsters almost entirely.

Let’s find out! A handshake starts the duel. Game 1 Mario has elected to go first and starts out by setting a Read more

­­­This is going to be a short match folks! Here in Round 4 of ARGCS Las Vegas we have Anthony Eckroth’s Evilswarm deck facing off against Joel Valenzuela’s Gishki Hieratic deck. The Hieratic loop is extremely powerful when it is able to go off, but Ophion can single-handedly end games just by being summoned to the field. Anthony won the dice roll 6 to 4 so let’s get into it! Game 1 Anthony began by drawing for his turn before using Upstart Goblin, giving +1000 lifepoints to Joel before playing Evilswarm Castor and using its condition to summon Evilswarm Mandragora.

Hey there Alter Reality Gamers! Your friendly neighborhood Head of Press Staff here with an article completely unrelated to our Circuit Series events! Today I am going to talk about one of the new decks I have started playing and have attained surprising success with at a local level. I have recently started playing Chaos Dragons, and before you hit the back button let me also add that I don’t play a LightSworn or Milling engine at all. It takes powerful, yet underused cards like Dragon Shrine and the new White Dragon Wyverburster and Black Dragon Collapserpent to create a Read more
