This past weekend the Yu-Gi-Oh Championship Series made its only North American stop of the format in Toronto, Canada. The usual suspects and I made the trip up north to compete in the tournament and when all was said and done, I was now a YCS Champion. This was sharp contrast as to how I had been doing at other events this format in that I hadn’t managed to top a premier event since the World Championship Qualifier in July. It is an honor to be able to share my experience from this weekend with such a wide and captive Read more

Hello everybody and welcome back to the second part of my NAWCQ tournament report. Last week I focused on the deck and card choices of the Sylvan deck that I piloted to a Top 16 finish. Now that you know why I played the cards I chose and know how I arrived at those conclusions, I’m going to bring you the follow-up with a round-by-round analysis of my tournament experience.  Let’s get right into it! Our trip from Atlanta to Detroit began Wednesday afternoon with the usual suspects; Desmond, Ben, Zach, and Alison. We drove half the way on Wednesday Read more

The first of the two biggest TCG tournaments of the year took place this weekend; the North American World Championship Qualifier. The other is the ARG Circuit Series Championship in Cleveland, Ohio in just under two weeks. There, Alter Reality will be giving away over $20,000 in prizes! I hope you all come out to this amazing event. While there is a Forbidden and Limited List change, a new summon mechanic, and a rule change that will all be in effect for the Circuit Series Championship, none of these were in effect for this weekend’s World Championship Qualifier. There I Read more

Really, I was intending to play a Lightsworn deck very similar to what I topped the Atlanta regional with last weekend, but had lost a bet to Desmond where I had to play the same deck he played. At first I was hoping to just convince him to play Lightsworn so I could fulfill my end of the bet, but still play the deck I wanted to use. This all changed when I came to a realization about how every format progresses. Let’s take a look back to Tele-DAD format. GBs won the first SJC that format. Tele-DAD went on Read more
