Here in Round 5 I have the pleasure of bringing to you a match featuring two-time champion and ARG’s own Jeff Jones against ARG mainstay Dalton Bousman.  Both duelists are piloting different versions of the flavor-filled archetype, but only one of these seasoned duelists will keep the undefeated dream alive! Game 1   Jeff wins the die roll and elects to go first.  Jeff Normal Summons Mathematician to send Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss to bring out Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss which dies.  He sets three.  During the End Phase he adds Tour Guide from the Underworld Read more

We’re here in Round 2 featuring Zach Savigano piloting Satellarknights against Koty Angeloff’s Spellbooks!  Despite people calling this a “three-deck format,” Koty has come here with a tried-and tested strategy that has survived through multiple formats.  Will old be able to topple over new, or will the Satellarknights prove too much to handle? Game 1   Zach wins the die roll and elects to go second. Koty begins the match by Normal Summoning Spellbook Magician of Prophecy to search out Spellbook of Secrets to get The Grand Spellbook Tower.  He then activates The Grand Spellbook Tower, sets two backrow, and Read more

How’s it going everybody?  Before the tournament began this morning, I sat down with a few duelists to pick their brain and to learn a little bit more about them.  Keep on the lookout for more interviews from a wide variety of duelists!

We’re finally here!  The Grand Finals of the first ever ARG Player’s Championship!  Luke Feeney has battled his way through the winner’s bracket to earn his seat here, while Alyx Lisgathe has had to fight his way up from the Loser’s Bracket for a chance at the title.  The odds are stacked in favor of Luke, however, as he only has to win one match while Alyx must beat him twice.  Will Spellbooks be able to dethrone the format juggernaut that is HAT or will HAT continue its dominating run through the Player’s Championship?   Alyx won game one before Read more

We’re all the way to the Top 4 of the Loser’s Bracket.  These duelists have fought long and hard after suffering an earlier defeat, but they still have a chance at glory!  Aaron is running HAT, a deck we have seen countless times today already, while Alyx is championing the Spellbook archetype.  Will Alyx’s Spellcasters be able to topple Aaron’s HAT? Alyx wins the die roll and elects to go first.  He simply sets two to his backrow and passes. Araron sets two to his backrow, plays Cardcar D and passes, drawing him two cards.   Alyx activates Spellbook Library of Read more
