[b] Hi Alexander, tell us why you brought Mermails to YCS Bochum? [/b]
[quote] I decided to run Mermails for Bochum. It is my most favourite deck and I feel like that’s what [ygo] is all about. It’s all about having fun with the deck you love to play. I already topped a YCS with a similar deck. So I thought: Why not play the deck I love? I’m very experienced with the deck and I guess that I see more options than the regular Duelist when playing Mermails. The real difficulty is to build a consistent version of the deck. I added [undine] to make the deck more consistent. You want to see [nepta] to start the engine. As soon as the deck starts running it is almost unstoppable.
[b] What were your expectations for this event?[/b]
[quote] My goal is to have fun. I feel like that success follows fun. I want to run a deck that have the most fun playing. I’m also very comfortable with the deck. I had to experience that as soon as I run a deck, that I don’t feel comfortable with I start to lose interest. The cool thing about a YCS is to meet new people and have fun and that’s the key to my success.
[b] Do have any Tech cards?[/b]
[quote] I added the [undine] engine to dump [b]Cryston Rosenix[/b] to the deck. The latter enables me to summon three monsters with a single card. When you are holding another water monster like [teus] or [swap frog] I can go into [b]Saryuja Skull Dread[/b] and draw 4 cards to dig for [nepta]. When the engine starts rolling I’m able to spam the field with Link Monsters and [moulin]. Chances are high that I can pull off the combo turn 1 since there are so many combo enablers in my deck.
[b] What is the best opening hand?[/b]
[quote] First I need to say that the deck rather wants to go second. I want to see the sixth card. The most important card is [nepta] to start the engine, so I want to see [undine], [nepta] and [teus] plus another water monster in my opening hand.
I end up with a huge field of Link Monsters. The field always depends on the cards that I draw, so basically there is now perfect field, there are just options.
[b] How about your Match-Ups?[/b]
[quote] I want to see Pendulum as much as possible, I can break their field consistently. It’s what I tested most against. I’m having a tough time against all the decks that are backrow heavy. For example [b]Trickstar Reincarnation[/b] kills me. The card itself is basically autowin against my deck.
[b] Any last words?[/b]
[quote] Shoutouts to everybody I know. Enjoy the game! I wish Konami would take care of the annoying FTK decks. They ruin the game.
