Dragon Duel Round 5: Roberto (Wind-Up) vs. Maximiliaan (Inzektors)

[p]This is it! The final round in the Swiss portion of the Dragon Duel Championship. The winner will move on to the knock out portion of the tournament which will be held tomorrow, which means he’ll still have a shot at making it to the finals and winning a ticket for the World Championship.
[/p][p]
Facing each other are Maximiliaan and Roberto.
[/p][p]
Maximiliaan kicked things off with [i fly], but [veiler] negated its effect.
[/p][p]
Roberto on the other hand had [w shark], he followed it up with [w fac], but [mst] destroyed the Continuous Spell. [instant fusion] then got him [flame ghost] and together with [w shark], it was used to Xyz Summon [w maity]. That got him [w hun] from his Deck, he brought back [w shark] with [reborn] and what followed is something that you probably understand a lot better than I do, known as the Wind-Up loop…[br]
After the dust had settled, Maximiliaan was left with only 1 card in his hand since Roberto’s only monster, [zenmaines], attacked over [i fly]. The Italian Duelist Set a Spell or Trap and he ended.
[/p][p]
Nothing happened on Maximiliaan’s turn.
[/p][nbsp]

Roberto's Wind-Up Deck seemed unstoppable!

Roberto [ns]ed [w rabbit]. He attacked and Maximiliaan found [gorz] among his remaining 2 cards! It didn’t hit the field, though, since Roberto flipped [warning]!
[/p][p]
All Maximiliaan could do was pass his following turn.
[/p][p]
Roberto’s attacks both went through.
[/p][p]
Maximiliaan still didn’t draw into anything that would help him delay the inevitable and that’s why he went for his Side Deck, looking for answers.
[/p][nbsp]

Roberto is only 1 win away from making it to the Top 8!

[nbsp][p]
Wow, that first Duel was over in no time! Both players were at it at lightning pace and it didn’t seem like any of them felt like giving me a break.
[/p][p]
Maximiliaan wanted to kick things off the second game. He [ns]ed [i pede], but once again, Roberto found [veiler] in his opening hand. 3 Spells or Traps came down and Maximiliaan passed the turn.
[/p][p]
[storm] destroyed all of Maximiliaan’s face-down Spells or Traps! [tgu] was [ns]ed, but this time it was Maximiliaan who had the [veiler]! Roberto Set a back row card and passed.
[/p][p]
[i pede]'[s] effect was used to equip it with [i hop]. This got Maximiliaan [i fly] from his Deck (he added the card to his hand). He [ns]ed it next, equipped it with [i hop] with its effect and he [ss]ed a second [i pede] from his Deck. He searched his Deck for [i sword], equipped another one from his hand and that left him with the following field:
[/p][nbsp]

This time the Inzektors were able to unlock their combo potential!

Roberto lost 4800 Life Points and had to come up with something to turn this game around. He drew, but immediately revealed his hand, showing that he couldn’t quite master a comeback.
[/p][nbsp]

Maximiliaan ties the score!

[nbsp][p]
Both players shuffled their respective Decks and were eager to get the final game underway.
[/p][p]
Roberto started with [tgu], he searched his Deck for a second copy, activated [w fac], then used both [tgu] to [ss] [w maity], this then got him [w hun], he activated the effect, [reborn] on [tgu] followed, [ss]ed another [w maity], this time he searched his Deck for [w rat], it was time for some more loops and all Maximiliaan could do was watch in amazement while Roberto’s combo unfolded!
[/p][nbsp]

Pot of Avarice turned out to be the final nail in the coffin!

When the Italian Duelist also activated [poa] to shuffle back his Wind-Up monsters to go for another round of loops, it was a little too much to bear for Maximiliaan and he knew it was over. He extended his hand and congratulated Roberto who advanced to the Top 8 of the Dragon Duel Championship!
[/p][nbsp][p]
Wow, both Duelists played at a lightning pace; this match didn’t take much more than 10 minutes! Let’s see if Roberto can keep it up tomorrow and if he can continue to dominate in the knock out portion of the European Dragon Duel Championship!
