Duelist Diary Part 1: Corey Day with Metalfoes Yang Zing

29.10.2016 | 13:00 |
We are here with Corey Day, who submitted his Decklist via the call for Decks on the Konami homepage. Thank you very much for applying and for taking your time to talk to us. Corey agreed on a Duelist Diary. That means we will escort him through the event and talk to him after every three Rounds to keep you updated on his tournament experience. Sorry for all the other guys that also applied. We appreciate the effort and your enthusiasm. Unfortunately our resources are limited and we can only feature one person throughout the event.


Corey Day Hi Corey, what made you come to YCS Liverpool?
I live in Newmarket which is near Cambridge. This is my second YCS after attending YCS London in 2014. I had a really bad record back then. I was playing a strange Deck and was mainly there for the fun. Basically, I’m here with my friends to have fun and enjoy myself.


What Deck are you playing today?
I decided to run Metalfoes Yang Zing. It may sound like a weird combination, but the Deck is able to build really strong field presence locking my opponent out of the game. I playtested with some friends of mine and the chances of building the field are 55%, when you get to go first. When going second it’s a lot harder to win.


What were your expectations for this event?
My goal for this weekend is to reach Day 2 with the Deck. I think that is a very realistic goal and I feel quite confident. It is most important to win the die roll so I can go first. Other than that I’m here to have fun and have a good laugh with my friends.


What is the YCS experience all about ?
To me going to a YCS means having fun with my friends. We start to prepare and playtest a lot going into the event. I like to try my luck every now and then and see where I stand. During the event we enjoy ourselves, hang out and laugh a lot. It’s just great fun to hang out and share a common interest.


Any final words?
I want to give shoutouts to the guy that gave me the Decklist. Thanks for the idea and the encouragement.
