08.07.2012 | 10:32
It took a while to start the Dragon Duel this morning, but we finally got things underway. We'll now watch Erik from Germany, who is running Chaos Dragons, going up against Kadri from Turkey, who relies on Inzektors!
Both players rolled a 4 twice and then Erik's 3 was enough to beat Kadri's 1. That meant the German Duelist was allowed to go first.
Erik kicked things off with Sabersaurus and 2 face-down Spells or Traps.
Kadri had Allure of Darkness, banishing Inzektor Ladybug, he Normal Summoned Inzektor Hornet, equipped it with 2 copies of Inzektor Sword - Zektkaliber and when he attacked Sabersaurus, Erik flipped Forbidden Lance during the Damage Step! That meant that Sabersaurus would stay on the field!
The following turn, Erik used Heavy Storm to get rid of Fiendish Chain. He then Normal Summoned Kabazauls, attacked with both monsters and in Main Phase 2, he Xyz Summoned Evolzar Laggia. He Set a Spell or Trap and ended.
Kadri only Set a monster.
Kadri only Set a Spell or Trap.
The following turn, Erik declared an attack with Jurrac Guaiba and that's when Kadri shuffled up as his face-down Solemn Judgment couldn't stop the attacks that would definitely follow and decide the game in Erik's favor!
Erik takes the first Duel in a rush!
Both players took some time checking their Side Decks and thinking about ways to improve their chances against their opponent's strategies.
Kadri then opted to start the second Duel. His hand featured Soul Taker, Tour Guide From the Underworld, Messenger of Peace, Royal Decree, Inzektor Centipede and Inzektor Giga-Mantis.
He Normal Summoned Tour Guide From the Underworld and searched his Deck for Sangan. He then used both to Xyz Summon Wind-Up Zenmaines. He Set Royal Decree and passed.
Erik Set a monster and 2 Spells or Traps. Kadri flipped Royal Decree during the End Phase.
Erik found Rescue Rabbit, which got him Evolzar Dolkka after a flurry of Special Summons. He used Soul Taker on Inzektor Centipede, then attacked over Wind-Up Zenmaines. Evolzar Dolkka was supposed to use its effect to negate the effect of Wind-Up Zenmaines (which then used its effect again, but Evolzar Dolkka's effect was used again as well).
Kadri used Messenger of Peace to slow the game down a bit.
Kadri Set a monster.
Both players went on to add face-down cards the following turns.
Erik first used Dust Tornado on Solemn Warning. He then activated Dark Hole, destroying both Snowman Eater and Spirit Reaper on Kadri's site and a Set Sangan and Sabersaurus on his site. He searched his Deck for Tour Guide From the Underworld.
He Normal Summoned it, used its effect to search his Deck for another copy and that's when Kadri used Book of Moon to flip the new copy face-down.

Kadri Set a face-down Spell or Trap.
