Deck Profile – Anders Koh’s Karakuri Deck

19.01.2014 | 17:05 |
Anders Koh has bested the competition, and come out on top at YCS Sydney! I managed to have a discussion with him after the final round about his Deck and his card choices!

Say hello to your new Champion!

Who are you, and where have you come from to play in the event? I'm Anders Koh, and I'm from Singapore.

What Deck did you choose to play today, and why did you choose it? I chose to play a pure Karakuri Deck today. I thought that it would be a good choice, considering how strong it is against slower Decks like Fire Fist and Bujin. It's my favourite Deck, and I thought it was a good choice for the TCG metagame (we use OCG cards in Singapore). Also, nobody expected to see Karakuris!

What was your favourite play from the entire event? My favourite play was definitely during the first Duel of the feature match - I Summoned 3 Karakuri Steel Shogun mdl 00x "Bureido", Naturia Beast, and then used 2 of the Bureidos to Xyz Summon Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand!

What cards were most important to your success? Definitely Karakuri Shogun mdl 00 "Burei" and Karakuri Steel Shogun mdl 00x "Bureido" - the ability to Special Summon lots of monsters and win in one turn gave me a lot of wins during the event!

What's next for YCS Sydney's champion? I'll be heading back to Singapore to organise and judge some events. If there's another Oceanian YCS in the future, I'll be back to defend my title!

Anything else you'd like to say? I'd like to thank my friends for helping me build my Deck, and for accompanying me on the trip to Sydney!

Congratulations once again to Anders Koh for winning YCS Sydney! He has definitely made a strong impression on everyone here with his victory!
