Hello Alter Reality Gamers! Your friendly neighborhood Head of Coverage staff is back to bring you a wrap up for the recent ARGCS Columbus event! This was the second ARG Circuit Series event that we have ever had and I don’t think it could have gone much smoother. As with anything there were of course some slops to go along with the props, and I will get into those later, but for right now let’s talk shop about how the event itself was! The main event itself actually had a slightly smaller turnout than Fort Worth did, coming in at Read more

Both players made it to the top 4 of the tournament today, but unfortunately lost out and would now be facing off for the 3rd place. We’ve seen this match-up countless times throughout the format, so let’s get right to it. Steve won the die roll so he’d be starting this match off. He activated Gold Sarcophagus banishing Tempest. He searched a Dragunity Phalanx off of the Tempest and then proceeded to Sacred Sword his Blaster away. He searched another Blaster via Blaster’s effect. Cards of Consonance came next, ditching the Phalanx he had just searched. Dragunity Dux took the Read more

George North is here in the top 8 with the most represented deck of the tournament, Dragon Rulers. Steve Klaus is here representing the version that has seemingly fallen out of favor, Dragunity Rulers. Both of these competitiors have made it this far, and they’re both hoping to advance to the top 4. George is taking first today, and he opened with a hand of Tempest, Card Trooper, Return from the Different Dimension, Debris Dragon, Cards of Consonance and Dark Hole. He summoned Card Trooper and milled Raigeki Break, Sacred Sword of the Seven Stars and Tidal. He passed turn. Read more

Duelists Nathan Ura and Larry Musgrove are both playing Dragon Rulers in Top 16, each bringing their own special tech choices to the game! At the beginning of the match,  Ura offered to side out Return from a Different Dimension for games two and three, but Musgrove refused the offer! Musgrove won three games with Return from a Different Dimension yesterday and wants to capitalize on its explosive power again today! Ura constantly whistled whilst sleeving his deck with the fresh sleeves ARG provided Top 16 players, but it didn’t give him the power to win the die roll. Musgrove Read more

We’re here at the ARG Circuit to bring you folks the eternal war between the Dragon Ruler variants! Will young Leverett come out on top as we saw yesterday? The hands of fate might seem to suggest so. Both duelists cast the die and as nice as North’s 10 off two 6 sided die was, Leverett’s 11 was a little nicer.   GAME 1 Leverett activated Ravine and pitched Tempest to add Phalanx. He then Terraformed for a second Ravine which was activated over the other other one to pitch the added Phalanx and add Dux. When he summoned Dux and Read more

Today in round 9 we have Billy Brake, who is fresh off of another top from last weekend, going up against Jordan Winters. Both players are 6-2 heading into round 9, and the winner here will likely make the top cut. They’re both playing Dragons, and like any other mirror match, a clutch Crimson Blader will likely seal the game for whoever makes the play. Billy won the die roll, and he started the game off by ditching Tempest and Debris to add Blaster to his hand. He banished Tidal and Blaster to special summon Redox in defense mode. Jordan responded Read more

Veterans Eaton Guo and Steve Klaus met in Round 9, representing the popular decks Dragunity Rulers and Evilswarm!   Steve won the die roll and elected to go first. He played Terraforming adding Dragon Ravine from his deck to his hand and immediately activated it. By discarding Blaster to the graveyard, he added a Dragunity Phalanx from his deck to his hand and followed with Cards of Consonance to draw two cards, and then used a second Terraforming to add a second Dragon Ravine to his hand. Klaus activated Upstart Goblin, giving Guo 1000 Life Points. Klaus Normal Summoned Dragunity Read more

Round 8 brings us another Dragon Ruler mirror match. This time Desmond Johnson and Thomas Vo are both using Dragunity Rulers. Vo started the duel by using Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storm’s effect to send itself and Phalanx to the graveyard to search Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders to his hand! He followed up with using Sacred Sword of Seven Starts to banish Redox and add a second Redox to his hand. He Normal Summoned Dragunity Dux and used Phalanx and Vajriyana to Synchro Summon a Colossal Fighter! He set one card and passed. Johnson also used a Sacred Sword Read more

Sometimes events like these are the best opportunities to see newcomers come into their own. That being the case, it’s my pleasure to bring you a match between seasoned vet Wesley Johnson and young Zach Leverett.   GAME 1 Wesley won the roll and would be going first. He started off modestly, with setting 1 backrow before ending. Zach opened to a hand of Dragunity Dux, Tempest, Dragon Ravine, Upstart Goblin, Solemn Warning, and Castle of Dragon Souls. He started his turn by pitching Tempest to dump Phalanx. Then, when he dropped Dux and attempted to dougie, Wesley stopped him Read more

Both Lucas Nation and Desmond Johnson are playing Dragon Rulers today, but only one is running the Dragunity engine; the other is playing Poki-Draco. Eventually after many rolls, Nation won and elected to go first. His first turn was modest with just two sets. Johnson started his turn in a much bigger way, activating Terraforming to get Dragon’s Ravine to his hand and activated Upstart Goblin to draw a card! He activated Sacred Sword of Seven Stars and banished Tempest to search Dragunity Phalanx! Johnson activated Dragon’s Ravine and buried Phalanx, hoping to get a Dragunity Dux from his deck, Read more
