29.06.2014 | 17:20
This weekend 39 young Duelists from all over Europe have competed against each other in the Dragon Duel which has been running parallel to the Main Event. These two Duelists have bested the rest to secure their trip to the World Championship in Rimini Italy and now they are playing for the glory! Edisson is a French Duelist while Fabio comes from Germany.
It was a relaxed atmosphere as both Duelists knew they had already secured their place in the World Championship to represent their continent. Edisson won the die roll and used Pot of Duality to take Geargiagear. He set five cards and passed to Fabio.
The young German studied his hand and decided to Summon Mermail Abysspike. It discarded Atlantean Marksman to search Mermail Abysslinde and Edisson used his set Geargiagear to bring out Geargiano Mk-II and Geargiano. Book of Moon went to stop Mermail Abysspike from attacking but Forbidden Lance let is destroy the Geargiano Mk-II.
Gear Gigant X searched a Geargiaccelerator from the Deck and Geargiarmor was Summoned. Geargiaccelerator was Special Summoned and Abyss Dweller was Xyz Summoned. The effect meant Fabio’s set Mermail Abysslinde couldn’t use the effect and the German took some damage.
Goblindbergh and Fire Hand hit the field and became Evilswarm Exciton Knight. Torrential Tribute destroyed the Evilswarm Exciton Knight but the effect was Chained and the field was wiped.
Edisson drew and played Soul Charge! He paid 3000 to take two Geargiarmor and a Geargiaccelerator, Xyz Summoning another Gear Gigant X to take Geargiano Mk-II from the Graveyard. He set the remaining Geargiarmor and a Spell/Trap and passed.
Fabio set a card to each zone and allowed the French Duelist to play again.
He took Geargiaccelerator from the Graveyard courtesy of Gear Gigant X and flipped Geargiarmor to search. Geargiano Mk-II was Summoned and the effect bought back Geargiano. They stacked up as materials for Soul of Silvermountain and when the effect was used Fabio responded with his set Abyss-Sphere to bring out Mermail Abysslinde in Defense Position.
Soul of Silvermountain attacked over Mermail Abyssdine and retrieved a Geargiaccelerator. In Main Phase 2 Number 50: Blackship of Corn ensured Mermail Abysslinde wouldn’t get the effect and Geargiarmor was flipped down.
Fabio could only set a monster, well on the defensive.
Edisson used his Geargiarmor to search for a Geargiaccelerator on the next turn so that he could Xyz Summon Diamond Dire Wolf. The effect destroyed Fabio’s only card on the field – a set Mermail Abyssgunde – and had more than enough attack on the field to end the first game!
French Dragon Duelist Edisson wins the first game!
Both players used their Side Deck and the German Duelist would start things off in the second game.
His six cards found his hand and the only play on the first turn was to set a Monster and two Spell/Traps.
Edisson Summoned Geargiarsenal and used the effect to set Geargiarmor. He too set two but they were both blasted by Mystical Space Typhoons in the End Phase – a Geargiagear and Mystical Space Typhoon of his own.
Fabio Summoned Mermail Abyssocea and flipped his Mermail Abyssdine to bring out M-X-Saber Invoker. It searched Goblindbergh and Mind Control took Geargiarmor. It was flipped and Number 101: Silent Honor Ark was Xyz Summoned. Both Monsters attacked and Edisson was down a chunk of Life Points.
He foughtback with Geargiano Mk-II to revive Geargiarsenal. Geargiaccelerator was Special Summoned and used with the Arsenal to make Number 101: Silent Honor Ark and take his opponent’s copy of the same card. It attacked over M-X-Saber Invoker and it was the German’s turn to eat some damage.
Fabio set a card to each zone.
Geargiano Mk-II formed Soul of Silvermountain on the next turn and targetted a Chained Forbidden Lance. Number 101: Silent Honor Ark attacked over Mermail Abysslinde which searched Mermail Abysspike and discarded Mermail Abyssgunde to revive Mermail Abyssdine and search another Mermail Abysslinde. Abyssdine used her effect to revive Mermail Abyssocea and suddenly Fabio had a full field. Silvermountain went to attack but Edisson forgot that Fabio had used Forbidden Lance on it earlier and it was destroyed! Rather than risk anything, in Main Phase 2 Edisson played Dark Hole – his Number 101: Silent Honor Ark survived.
Fabio drew to two in hand but had nothing else. Mermail Abysslinde was discarded to Special Summon Mermail Abyssteus which searched another Mermail Abysslinde. It was Normal Summoned and rammed in to Number 101: Silent Honor Ark to Special Summon Mermail Abyssmegalo which attacked and the resulting damage left Edisson on 2200. In Main Phase 2 Mermail Abyssgaios was Xyz Summoned.
Edisson set a card to each zone.
Fabio attacked over Geargiarmor which searched and the German set a Spell/Trap.
Edisson Summoned Geargiarsenal and set a Geargiarmor from his Deck.
The French Duelist set a card to each zone and on the next turn Fabio attacked over Geargiaccelerator which returned a Geargiarmor to the hand. Mermail Abyssgaios attacked in to Dimensional Prison and the German set a Spell/Trap.
Fabio set a monster.
Dweller detached and attacked over another Ice Hand. Fabio set another Monster.

A few turns of setting Spell/Traps followed and Edisson had five Spell/Traps to Fabio’s one and two cards in hand.
Mermail Abysshilde met a Dimensional Prison and on the next turn Edisson had Dimensional Fissure.
Fabio had Mystical Space Typhoon for Dimensional Fissure and discarded Atlantean Dragoons for Mermail Abyssteus. Atlantean Marksman and Mermail Abysspike were searched and the latter was Summoned discarding the former. Another Atlantean Marksman was searched and Edisson’s dead Solemn Warning was destroyed. Number 50: Blackship of Corn was Xyz Summoned and in the knowledge that he was about to lose his last Life Points Edisson picked up his cards!
German Duelist Fabio pulls a game back!
Edisson started the third and final game with two backrow cards.
Fabio studied his hand and discarded Mermail Abyssdine to Special Summon Mermail Abyssteus. Maxx "C" was discarded and Mermail Abyssteus searched out Mermail Abyssocea. Abyssteus attacked successfully and Fabio set two.
Edisson Summoned Geargiarsenal and used it to grab a Geargiarmor from the Deck which was flipped face down. At the end of his Main Phase Fabio used Abyss-Sphere to get Mermail Abysslinde. It was destroyed in the End Phase and Edisson’s Debunk was countered by Wiretap. Mermail Abysspike hit the field and Mermail Abyssocea was discarded to search Atlantean Marksman.
Fabio’s turn started with Mystical Space Typhoon on Bottomless Trap Hole. Atlantean Marksman and Mermail Abysspike were discarded for Mermail Abyssmegalo. Abyss-Sphere was searched and the set Geargiarmor was destroyed! This meant Mermail Abyssmegalo could use the effect of tributing Mermail Abysspike enabling it to attack twice! That was enough damage to end the game and a very sporting Edisson shook his hand like a true competitor.
