I asked them: “How did you come up with the deck idea?”

[b]Raul Fernandez:[/b] “We were getting tired playing X-Sabers and Quickdraw all the time, so we thought about other possible decks. We wanted to go old school and use cards that can really punish your opponents for playing one of the popular decks. We came up with [ddv] as it is really strong against X-Sabers, Plants and even Gadgets or Infernities. Once we were stuck with [ddv], we had to come up with a deck that would work well together with it.”

[b]David Garcia:[/b] “Raul came up with Vayu Turbo as you have [grepher], [sirocco] and [vayu] [dash] all cards that help you to quickly get a monster on the field to activate [ddv]. We added [rota] and [duality] so we could quickly work through the deck and get our hands on [grepher] early.”

[nbsp]

[b]Me:[/b] “It seems like a lot of the cards work really well together?”

“Raul Fernandez:[/b] “We main decked [plague] and [gardna] as other possible targets for [grepher] and to add some more flexbility to the deck. They also combo nicely with [burial] and as we already had so many darks, we added [allure] to the mix. It’s OK to remove [plague] or [gardna] with [allure] as you can get it back with [burial] later.”

[b]David Garcia:[/b] “During our testing sessions, we found out we had to add [crow] and [gorz] as they are some of the few good options against an OTK that is set up with [cold wave] ([gorz] also works well with [ddv]). [gale] is another great card that is not only very flexible, it also works perfectly together with [sirocco] [dash] you can easily bring out [stardust] from your very first turn on! If you have [vayu] in your Graveyard, you can bring out a Blackwing Synchro Monster right after you Special Summoned [stardust].”

[nbsp]

[b]Me:[/b] “You’re playing [mj]?”

[b]David Garcia:[/b] “Yeah, [mj] is the finishing touch. No one sees it coming and it can really catch an opponent off guard! In this deck, you can even use [mj] when you’re holding onto a number of monsters, so your opponent doesn’t expect it sitting there. There are so many useful Graveyard interactions in this deck; you don’t lose anything if [gardna], [plague] or some of the Blackwings are sent to your Graveyard. You still get to use their effects and set up your big plays!”

[nbsp]

[b]Me:[/b] “How did the element of surprise work for you guys?”

[b]David Garcia:[/b] “It was a huge advantage! We played some matches and our opponents didn’t see our big plays coming! We brought out [grepher] first turn, discarding [sirocco] and ditching [vayu] from our Deck. We can then Special Summon [armed wing] first turn! If you Set [ddv] or [icarus] behind it, it’s a really strong opening as you can really slow your opponent down.”

[nbsp]

So there you have it. A great new take on an existing deck that rocked yesterday’s tournaments. Sometimes, it really pays out to take a look back at decks for inspiration, combine them with new ideas and you might find something that really works like these two Duelists from Spain.
