Here we are in Round 4 and we once again get to showcase two outstanding duelists in Corey Roca and Joe Bogli! Corey is piloting Shaddolls with a splash of the White and Black dragons while Joe is hoping Satellarknights will guide him to victory. Can Joe keep the win streak alive for Satellarknights or will Corey's Shaddolls unseat the other format titan?

8000 - 9000
Joe starts with an Upstart Goblin followed by one more. He then Normal Summons Satellarknight Unukalhai to send Satellarknight Deneb to the grave. Unukalhai runs over Mathematician. During the End Phase, Corey activates Sinister Shadow Games, sending Shaddoll Beast to the grave. He draws a card then brings back Beast facedown.
9700 - 9000

9700 - 5500
Joe draws for turn then Normal Summons Satellarknight Altair but Corey has Vanity's Emptiness!
Corey runs over Altair then passes.
Joe draws for turn, uses a third Upstart Goblin and scoops it up. Trying to get a little too cute with Fiendish Chain ends up costing Joe as a devastating Black Rose Dragon is too much for him to try and come back from.
Joe elects to go first for Game 2. He starts off with a Reinforcement of the Army to get Deneb which adds Altair to his hand. A Pot of Duality reveals Nobleman of Crossout, Mystical Space Typhoon, and Breakthrough Skill, adding Noble of Crossout. He sets three and passes.
Corey sets three backrow, a monster, and sends it back over to Joe. End Phase Joe's Mystical Space Typhoon hits Corey's set Royal Decree. Joe sighs as he was hoping to hit a set Sinister Shadow Games.

Joe then Normal Summons Satellarknight Vega without effect then runs over Falco. Main Phase 2 he Xyz Summons for Diamond Dire Wolf to pop Beast. End Phase Corey flips up Royal Decree to lock down Joe's backrow.
Corey starts with a Foolish Burial to send Squamata which sends Beast to draw him a card. He then banishes Squamata for Wyverbuster which connects directly. He then sets a monster and a backrow and passes back to Joe.
8000 (Corey) - 6300 (Joe)
Joe Normal summons Vega which summons Altair which brings back Deneb which adds another Altair to his hand. He then Xyz Summons Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer but Corey has the Book of Moon to shut it down!

Lavalval Chain detaches Squamata and sends Eclipse Wyvern to the grave to banish Dark Armed Dragon. Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning hits the field by banishing Wyvern and Falco, giving him the necessary amount of darks to summon Dark Armed Dragon! DAD destroys Joe's monsters then he attacks for game
An explosive turn marked by two of the game's strongest monsters brings Corey Roca victory! He advances onward with a 3-1 record, but both duelists are definitely in the running for Top 16 with some good tiebreakers!
