Drafting Duel: Duncan Tang vs Abid Arshad
09.09.2012 | 18:08
Welcome again Duelists. Last time we saw how Drafting would work in a Yu-Gi-Oh! 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!
Tang drew and remarked “Oh this is so sick!”. Tour Guide From the Underworld was Summoned and he brought out Gravitic Orb to Xyz Summon Number 17: Leviathan Dragon. He detached a Material to overpower Jinzo.
Arshad Set a monster on his turn.
Arshad Set a Spell/Trap
Tang attacked directly with both monsters.
Arshad played another Fiend's Sanctuary.
Tang Summoned Cloudian - Poison Cloud and attacked into the Token, but it did nothing as they both had 0 ATK!
Arshad Summoned Drillroid and followed up with Autonomous Action Unit to take Tang’s copy and Xyz Summon Gem-Knight Pearl. Pearl destroyed Machina Fortress in battle and Fortress destroyed Pearl with its effect. Arshad then destroyed D.D. Assailant with Shield Crush.
Tang wins Duel 1!
Tang had the perfect answer though and Summoned Drillroid! It destroyed the Sphinx and he Set a card.
Arshad Set a monster and a Spell/Trap on his turn.
Tang Set Vortex Trooper.
Arshad destroyed it with Shield Crush and attacked directly.
Tang activated Premature Burial, but Dark Bribe deprived us of an awesome play! (Tang would revive Machina Fortress, bounce the Premature Burial back to his hand with Zephyros and play it again.) He Summoned Archfiend Soldier and destroyed Deep Diver, Arshad would draw Witch of the Black Forest next turn.
Duncan Tang wins this Drafing Duel!
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!
