Feature Match: Saturday’s ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! Final

30.11.2013 | 20:57 |

This is the very first Final Match of the YCS Turin weekend. Only 2 players are left in our Saturday Attack of the Giant Card. They both had to overcome 4 rounds of intense Dueling in order to make it so far. On my right-hand side there is Valens Leteurtre from France. He is playing Dragon Ruler today. On my left-hand side there is Matthias Pfäffli from Switzerland. He is playing Constellar. My gut feeling says Dragon Ruler will have a slight advantage in this Match. But finals tend to have their very own dynamic. Everything is possible. Who will win the Giant Card of YCS Turin day 1?

[br]

Matthias Pfäffli is one of many players representing Switzerland this weekend!

[br]

Leteurtre started the first game by discarding [tidal] for [tidal]. He sent [trooper] to his Graveyard. Then he Normal Summoned [debris], Special Summoned [trooper] and Synchro Summoned [afd]. He then Special Summoned [redox] and Xyz Summoned [draco]. He Special Summoned 2 Tokens, Set 1 [st] and ended.

Pfäffli activated [ff tenki] and searched for a Constellar. He Normal Summoned [con pol] and took a look attacked his Extra Deck. He then Normal Summoned [con kaus]. [pwwb] was activated and sent [con kaus] back to the top of Pfäffli’s Deck, who Set 2 [st]s.

[draco] Special Summoned another 2 Tokens and [ced] sent it right back to the Extra Deck. Leteurtre then Special Summoned [tdrag] from his hand by banishig [tidal] and [afd], searching for another [tidal]. [tidal] attacked [con pol] but was stopped by [mf].

[br]

[br]

[debris] came down next, Special Summoned [trooper]. Then [afd] came to the field again and also [redox]. Again Leteurtre overlayed for [draco]. He offered 1 Token as a Tribute to destroy [con pol] and then Special Summoned 2 more Token.

Pfäffli Summoned [con alg] and [con kaus] and Special Summoned [con ple]. He used its effect, sended [draco] back to the Extra-Deck and then attacked 1 Token, ending the turn.

Leteurtre then Special Summoned [tidal] to field an attacked Pleiades, which protected itself by sending [tidal] back to Leteurtre’s hand. Leteurtre then played [ravine], discarded [maxx] sending [blaster] to the Graveyard. He Special Summoned [redox] and [tdrag], then [draco]. He Special Summoned 2 Token and offered 1 to destroy Pleiades.

Pfäffli Set 1 [st].

[br]

[br]

This [7tools] were destroyed by [draco]. Leteurtre took a deep look into his Graveyard and Special Summoned [blaster], [tdrag] and [redox]. All Monsters attacked and took Pfäffli down to 1200 life points. Another [draco] ended this turn.

Could the next card bring a comeback or Pfäffli? He drew and considered his options, but then decided it was time to consider his Side Deck.

[h2]Leteurtre takes the first game![/h2]

Pfäffli opted to start the last game with [rota]. He took [con pol] and then Normal Summoned it. He also Normal Summoned [con kaus] and then Special Summoned [con ple]. Pfäffli Set 3 spells or traps and ended his turn.

[br]

French player Valens has to think about his next move.

[br]

Immediately after Leteurtre drew a card, Pfäffli flipped [wall]. Leteurtre Set 2 [st]s and Set 1 monster facedown.

Pleiades used its effect to send the Monster back to Leteurtre’s hand, but [wrath] stopped it by discarding [blaster]. But [7tools] stopped [wrath]! Pleiades then was free to attack. In the End Phase Leteurtre flipped [mst] destroying Iron Wall.

So Leteurtre was free to Special Summoned [tidal], banishing [corseca] and [blaster]. He got another [blaster]. [tidal] attacked but was stopped by Pleiades. Leteurtre Set 1 [st] and Set 1 monster facedown.

Pfäffli Set 1 [st] and ended.

[ryko] was than Flip Summoned by Leteurtre, but it was stopped by [sw]. [mst] then destroyed a [bom] which was Chained in order to Flip Pleiades face-down. Leteurtre Special Summoned [blaster], banished a [tdrag], searched for [debris]. He then Normal Summoned [debris], revived [ryko] and then attacked with his 3 monsters dropping Pfäffli down to 3800. Leteurtre then Special Summoned [star eater] and Set 1 [st].

Pfäffli Set 1 [st], ending the turn.

[br]

[br]

[ravine] came down for Leteurtre. He discarded his last card in his hand: [tidal]. [tdrag] was sent to the Graveyard. Leteurtre Special Summoned [tidal] banishing [tdrag] in order to search for another. When entering his Battle-Phase Pfäffli activated [ced] and sent [star eater] back to the Extra-Deck. [tidal] made a direct attack anyway dropping Pfäffli down to 1100.

[br]

[br]

Pfäffli tried to turn the table by searching for [con kaus] with [ff tenki]. But when he tried to Special Summon his Constellar Xyz he was stopped right away by [wrath]. Pfäffli immediately scooped up his cards and offered the handshake.

[h2]Leteurtre wins the match![/h2]

With this quick 2:0 victory Valens Leteurtre picks up the first Giant Card of this weekend!
