Hi Imran, tell us why you brought Blue Eyes to YCS Bochum?
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 Anti-Spell Fragrance. So I went with Blue Eyes instead. The Deck starts operating as soon as Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon is on the field. He limits my opponent’s plays and Paleozoics have problems getting over my big monsters. Dragon Spirit of White was one of my key cards today. Everytime it gets special Summoned it banishes a backrow card. But my best card today was Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon.
What were your expectations for this event?
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.
Do have any Tech cards?
I maindeck 2 copies of Phoenix Wing Wind Blast as it is such a versatile card. It solves all of my problems. For example if I ditch The White Stone of Legend I can spin a backrow and Summon a monster in the End Phase. In my Side Deck I have three copies of Magical Spring. They help to fill my Graveyard and put work against Metalfoes. The card was really good all day.
What is the best opening hand?
I want to see Soul Charge, Dragon Shrine and another draw card in my first five cards. I also like to see The Melody of Awakening Dragon 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.
Any last words?
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.
