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.

 


Kadri drew his 6th card faster than a Formula Synchron!

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.

 


Erik gained the upper hand with Laggia!

Erik Normal Summoned Jurrac Guaiba. Before he could move on to the Battle Phase, Kadri discarded Effect Veiler. Erik opted to not attack.


Kadri only Set a Spell or Trap.


Erik played Tour Guide From the Underworld, Kadri found another Effect Veiler in his hand.


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.

Xyz Monsters everywhere!

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 Inzektor Dragonfly with Inzektor Giga-Mantis to attack over Evolzar Dolkka. He searched his Deck for Inzektor Centipede.


Erik now Normal Summoned Kabazauls and used Monster Reborn to bring back Kabazauls. Together, they were used to add Gem-Knight Pearl to his field, who attacked over Inzektor Dragonfly.


Kadri used Messenger of Peace to slow the game down a bit.


Erik would have nothing on it and used Mystical Space Typhoon to destroy it. That meant that Inzektor Centipede bit the dust as well. He Set a monster.


Kadri Set a monster.


Erik Flip Summoned Sabersaurus and attacked into Snowman Eater, which ate Gem-Knight Pearl.


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.

 


Both players seemed to like Tour Guide quite a lot!

Play was back to Erik, who Set a monster.


Kadri Set a face-down Spell or Trap.


When Erik switched Wind-Up Zenmaines to Attack Position, Kadri feared that it was over. One Mystical Space Typhoon later, he extended his hand and offered the handshake.
