Drafting Duel: Duncan Tang vs Abid Arshad
[p]Welcome again Duelists. Last time we saw how Drafting would work in a [ygo] environment, and followed Duncan Tang as he selected the cards he could build a Deck out of. With his Deck complete he now faces off against fellow UK Duelist Abid Arshad, who’ll have some of the cards Tang passed by on. Let’s see how the Duel develops![/p]
[div]Arshad started the Match quickly with [fsanc] and Tribute Summoned [jinzo]!
Tang drew and remarked “Oh this is so sick!”. [tgu] was Summoned and he brought out [gorb] to [xyz] . He detached a Material to overpower [jinzo].
Arshad played [coh] and took control of . It attacked directly and in [mp2] he Tributed it to Summon [hades].
Tang [ss]ed [fortress] and ran over [hades].
Arshad Set a monster on his turn.
Tang Summoned [dda] and both monsters attacked, eventually destroying the Set [gyroid].
Arshad Set a [st]
Tang attacked directly with both monsters.
Arshad played another [fsanc].
Tang Summoned [cpc] and attacked into the Token, but it did nothing as they both had 0 ATK!
Arshad Summoned [droid] and followed up with [aau] to take Tang’s copy and Xyz Summon [pearl]. Pearl destroyed [fortress] in battle and Fortress destroyed Pearl with its effect. Arshad then destroyed [dda] with [scrush].
Tang Summoned [deko] and equipped [cpc] with [fspirit], enough to seal the Duel.[/div]
Tang wins Duel 1!
[div]Arshad opened with [fsanc] again, this time using the Token to Tribute Set [sphinx].
Tang had the perfect answer though and Summoned [droid]! It destroyed the Sphinx and he Set a card.
Arshad Set a monster and a [st] on his turn.
Tang Tributed [droid] to Summon [zaborg] and destroy [thb]. He attacked directly and [thb] was revived in the End Phase.

Tang Set [b]Vortex Trooper[/b].
Arshad destroyed it with [scrush] and attacked directly.
Tang [ss]ed [fortress] but was halted by [solemn]. He Set [zephyros].
Arshad Summoned [diver] and destroyed Zephyros as  attacked directly.
Tang activated [prem], but [bribe] deprived us of an awesome play! (Tang would revive [fortress], bounce the [prem] back to his hand with Zephyros and play it again.) He Summoned [asoldier] and destroyed [diver], Arshad would draw [witch] next turn.
Arshad summoned [witch], destroyed Tang’s monster with [fissure], but when  attacked Tang had the [cylinder] to seal the Match![/div]
Duncan Tang wins this Drafing Duel!
[p]After the Match, Tang said that the Drafting was a lot of fun, and would certainly work if done as an alternative format. Who knows, maybe we’ll see Draft events in the future? Feel free to try it out with your friends and see how it goes![/p]
