[b] Hi Imran, tell us why you brought Blue Eyes to YCS Bochum? [/b]
[quote] I thought it was a good meta call as the deck has a great Match-Up against Paleozoics as well as Metalfoes. At first, I considered playing Phantom Knight Burning Abyss, but I couldn’t get my hands on three copies of [asf]. So I went with Blue Eyes instead. The deck starts operating as soon as [besd] is on the field. He limits my opponent’s plays and Paleozoics have problems getting over my big monsters. [bewd spirit] was one of my key cards today. Everytime it gets special summoned it banishes a backrow card. But my best card today was [aesd].
[b] What were your expectations for this event?[/b]
[quote] Actually, I thought I would scrub out. I played the deck for the first time and to my own surprise it worked out pretty nice. Initially I only came here to pick up my traveller mat and my success took me by surprise.
[b] Do have any Tech cards?[/b]
[quote] I maindeck 2 copies of [pwwb] as it is such a versatile card. It solves all of my problems. For example if I ditch [white stone] I can spin a backrow and summon a monster in the End Phase. In my Side Deck I have three copies of [spring]. They help to fill my graveyard and put work against Metalfoes. The card was really good all day.
[b] What is the best opening hand?[/b]
[quote] I want to see [soul charge], [shrine] and another draw card in my first five cards. I also like to see [melody] All of these cards fill my graveyard and make a big [soul charge] play. I won all my games when I was able to play it.
[b] Any last words?[/b]
[quote] I want to give shoutouts to Alexander Hultsch, who lend me the deck and Jamil Hammond who helped me build the deck: he was the second Blue Eyes player in Top 32.
