Dragon Duel Quarter Finals: Erik (Dino Rabbit) vs. Kadri (Inzektor)

[p]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!
[/p][p]
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 [saurus] and 2 face-down Spells or Traps.
[/p][p]
Kadri had [allure], banishing [ladybug], he [ns]ed [i hornet], equipped it with 2 copies of [i sword] and when he attacked [saber], Erik flipped [lance] during the Damage Step! That meant that [saurus] would stay on the field!
[/p][p]
The following turn, Erik used [storm] to get rid of [fiendish]. He then [ns]ed [kabaz], attacked with both monsters and in [mp] 2, he Xyz Summoned [laggia]. He Set a Spell or Trap and ended.
[/p][p]
Kadri only Set a monster.
[/p][nbsp]
Erik gained the upper hand with Laggia!

Erik [ns]ed [guaiba]. Before he could move on to the Battle Phase, Kadri discarded [veiler]. Erik opted to not attack.
[/p][p]
Kadri only Set a Spell or Trap.
[/p][p]
Erik played [tgu], Kadri found another [veiler] in his hand.
[/p][p]
The following turn, Erik declared an attack with [guaiba] and that’s when Kadri shuffled up as his face-down [sj] couldn’t stop the attacks that would definitely follow and decide the game in Erik’s favor!
[/p][nbsp]

Erik takes the first Duel in a rush!

[nbsp][p]
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 [taker], [tgu], [peace], [decree], [i pede] and [i mantis].[br]
He [ns]ed [tgu] and searched his Deck for [sangan]. He then used both to Xyz Summon [zenmaines]. He Set [decree] and passed.
[/p][p]
Erik Set a monster and 2 Spells or Traps. Kadri flipped [decree] during the End Phase.
[/p][p]
Kadri [ns]ed [i pede] and equipped it with [i mantis]. He attacked over [kabaz] with it, then [zenmaines] followed. He Set a Spell or Trap.
[/p][nbsp]
Xyz Monsters everywhere!

[nbsp][p]
Erik found [rabbit], which got him [dolkka] after a flurry of Special Summons. He used [taker] on [i pede], then attacked over [zenmaines]. [dolkka] was supposed to use its effect to negate the effect of [zenmaines] (which then used its effect again, but [dolkka]'[s] effect was used again as well).
[/p][p]
Kadri used [i fly] with [i mantis] to attack over [dolkka]. He searched his Deck for [i pede].
[/p][p]
Erik now [ns]ed [kabaz] and used [reborn] to bring back [kabaz]. Together, they were used to add [pearl] to his field, who attacked over [i fly].
[/p][p]
Kadri used [peace] to slow the game down a bit.
[/p][p]
Erik would have nothing on it and used [mst] to destroy it. That meant that [i pede] bit the dust as well. He Set a monster.
[/p][p]
Kadri Set a monster.
[/p][p]
Erik [fs]ed [saurus] and attacked into [snowman], which ate [pearl].
[/p][p]
Both players went on to add face-down cards the following turns.
[/p][p]
Erik first used [dust] on [warning]. He then activated [hole], destroying both [snowman] and [reaper] on Kadri’s site and a Set [sangan] and [saurus] on his site. He searched his Deck for [tgu].[br]
He [ns]ed it, used its effect to search his Deck for another copy and that’s when Kadri used [bom] to flip the new copy face-down.
[/p][nbsp]
Both players seemed to like Tour Guide quite a lot!

Kadri found a [tgu] of his own. Erik flipped [warning], but Kadri had [sj]. Erik chained a [sj] of his own! [/p][p]
Erik [fs]ed [tgu] and attacked directly with both. In [mp] 2, he used them to Xyz Summon [zenmaines].
[/p][p]
Kadri found [mop]
[/p][p]
Play was back to Erik, who Set a monster.
[/p][p]
Kadri Set a face-down Spell or Trap.
[/p][p]
When Erik switched [zenmaines] to [atk], Kadri feared that it was over. One [mst] later, he extended his hand and offered the handshake.
[/p][nbsp]

Erik advances to the Semi Finals!
