Our first matchup of the Top 4 highlights two duelists who have taken a tried and true archetype and added a twist to it.  Jordano has added a Traptrix support engine to the consistent Fire Fists, giving him additional defense.  Aaron Furman has gone with Main Deck copies of Ice Hand and Fire Hand, giving him the edge in grindy matchups and blowing out opponents who believe every set monster is a Geargiarmor.  Mind games will definitely be a big part in this match, especially with the fact that both decklists are public knowledge.   Game 1 Aaron wins the Read more
