Hi Sebastian, why did you choose to play Yosenju today?
At first it was the only Deck I had at my disposal. Now, after winning Nationals I felt very confident with the Deck and decided to run it for European Championship as well. I know my combos, I know the strong plays and all the Match-Ups. Therefore it seemed only right to play the Deck here in Dublin.


What are your Tech Picks going into the Event?
I maindeck Yosenjus' Secret Move which is a very strong control card. I search with Yosenju Kama 3 and stops nearly anything my opponent my throw at me. Actually it’s especially strong against backrow heavy Decks, because I negate all their answers to my plays. Necrovalley is another tech pick I maindeck although I need to draw into it.


Please explain the best opening hand?
I always want to open with Cardcar D and a few traps no matter if I go first or second. If I can choose I always want to go second. Only when I’m playing Burning Abyss I want to start. Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror is in the Side Deck.


Can you tell us about your Match-Ups?
Qliphort is my worst Match-Up due to their own trap line up and the Deck overpowers my monsters. Nekroz is my favourable Match-Up, I won all my 3 matches. I can force my plays through with Yosenjus' Secret Move.


What were your expectations for this event?
I wanted to make it Day 2 which I did. I would like to top but it is going to be difficult.


Any final words?
