Hi Denis, tell us why you brought Infernoid to YCS Rimini?
I chose to run Infernoids because I like how the Deck runs and the effects of the cards. I started to play Yu-Gi-Oh! only 6 months ago and I felt most comfortable with this Deck going into this event. I feel like the Deck is quite easy to play and I don’t like to play any meta Deck. I rather like to run anti-meta Decks.


Why did you start with Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME?
My younger brother was watching Yu-Gi-Oh! on TV and bought some cards. He asked me to play with him and that’s how I got hooked. Now I’m here holding an X:1 record going into Round 9. I very happy with my result so far.


What are your expectations for this event?
Since this is only my second YCS after playing in Milan I’m already very happy with making it to Day 2. Now my goal is to make it to the Top 32. That would be great!


Do have any Tech cards?
One of my strongest card is Infernoid Seitsemas. You need to play 3 copies! It’s the strongest monster in my Deck. I’m also maindecking 3 copies of Mistake. It was a last minute addition to the Deck and proved to be really valuable so far.


Tell us about your Match-Ups?
I have a good Match-Up against Nekroz, Shaddoll and Burning Abyss. I’m not dependent on my Extra Deck and can stop Graveyard effects with the effect of my Infernoid monsters. I do have a particularly bad Match-Up versus Kozmo, HERO and Ritual Beasts. Masked HERO Dark Law removes all my cards and I so very much dependent on my Graveyard. Kozmo is a problem on itself as it may easily OTK me. I do not play a lot of defensive cards.


Any final words?
Please ignore my Extra Deck! I’m playing 3 copies of [i terra] but I’m not able to Summon it. A friend of mine told me to add Mistake to the Main Deck and I remove the Void Imagination for it. Unfortunately I forgot to take the [terra] out of the Extra Deck.
