Coverage Feature Duel: Peter Frottier vs Robert Grayson-Hooley
I don’t want to undersell the importance of this Duel. In terms of how things work here on the coverage team it’s about as high-level as it gets. Peter Frottier controls all content and is the big daddy of our team – while Robert Grayson-Hooley is our new coverage recruit. As far as an initiation goes, this is going to be as intense as it gets. Both players have constructed Battle Pack 2 Decks from card pools (you saw Robert’s earlier) and will now battle it out. If Robert wins, will he still be here? Let’s find out!
Frottier started us off after neither players chose to re-draw and summoned [tardy], setting a [st]. Grayson-Hooley sighed.
He opened with [pog] tentatively (annoying the boss would not be a good move) and then [ns]ed [blizzard]. He used it’s effect on the Orc and set a backrow.
Frottier Summoned [gaf], quickly filling his field with big monsters. This is as metaphoric as it can get, as the big guns are Summoning the big guns. Goblins ran over Dragon and went to defence before Frottier passed.
Grayson-Hooley Summoned [alexandrite] and set another backrow, attacking over the Goblins.
Frottier Summoned [chiron] and used [tardy] to attack. [mas] changed the attack target to Chiron and the boss lost his monster – he was not happy.
Grayson-Hooley flipped [pod] revealing [pog] which, unsurprisingly, went straight in to his hand. “Oh really!?” exclaimed Frottier, as Grayson-Hooley added another two cards to his hand. He set a monster and activated [steelcage].
“Heart of the cards!…or something” said Frottier as he drew and set a card to each zone – taking him to three backrow.
Grayson-Hooley decided [ccd] would be the best option, netting him another two cards before discarding [mbc] and ending.
Frottier returned the favour with his own [ccd], waiting out the Steelcage.
Grayson-Hooley paid 1500LP for [aau] to take Frottier’s [chiron] and then tributed all three monsters for [barbaros] – which would have wiped Frottier’s field if not for [chalice]. Beast King went to attack Tardy Orc but got turned face-down by [bom].
[cguard] was Frottier’s next move, gaining it’s counter and going to attack over the Beast King. [econ] saved it and took Tardy Orc so that Card Guard couldn’t transfer it’s counter later in the turn.
Grayson-Hooley [ns]ed [gaf] and decided to leave it in attack position before ending.
Frottier wanted to end it here and now! He [ns]ed [mbc], Flip Summoned [truck], flipped [tiki c], and activated [b winds] on his Orc! That put more than enough damage on the field to end the game!
[h2]As expected, Grayson-Hooley doesn’t want to upset the boss and takes his loss like a man – Frottier wins![/h2]
