Game 1

Xiaoyu won the die roll and decided to go first. His opening hand consisted of [ssg], [el shd fus], [shd squa], [shd hedg], and [rai]. He played [el shd fus], fusing [shd hedg] and [shd squa] into [shd winda]. Squa sent [shd falco] to the Graveyard, and [shd hedg] added [shd beast] to Xiaoyu’s hand. Falco was then Summoned face-down from the Graveyard. Xiaoyu then Tributed Winda to Set a monster, allowing him to add [el shd fus] back to his hand. He Set 2 cards and passed his turn.

Peter opened with [rai], [a mora], [a igni], [shd falco], and [shd fus]. He drew [shd squa] and activated [shd fus], using Falco and Squamata to Special Summon [shd winda]. Falco was Special Summoned face-down, and Squamata sent [shd hedg] to the Graveyard, which added [shd beast] to Peter’s hand. He then activated [rai], but Xiaoyu used [ssg], sending [shd fus] to Grave and flipping up his [shd beast] and [shd falco]. Both were destroyed, and then Xiaoyu drew 2 cards and discarded [el shd fus] with Beast’s effect, and Falco Special Summoned [shd squa] face-down. Peter attack the Set Squamata, destroying it, but letting its effect destroy Peter’s Falco in the proces. In Main Phase 2, he Tributed Winda to Set a monster, and added [shd fus] to his hand. He then Set 2 cards and ended his turn.

Xiaoyu drew a card. He also played [rai]! Peter drew a card from his destroyed Beast. Xiaoyu Set 1 card and passed.

Peter drew a card. “It’s a monster!”, he exclaimed, as he summoned [mathe]! The [mathe] sent [shd falco] to the Graveyard, which summoned it face-down. Xiaoyu activated [a sanc]at this point, Special Summoning [a mora] and destroying [mathe]. Peter ended the turn.

Xiaoyu drew [bls] and proceeded to his End Phase. During the Phase, Peter used [a igni] on his own Set [a mora], Setting another Moralltach from his Deck. The first Moralltach was Summoned to the field, which destroyed Xiaoyu’s Moralltach.

Peter drew a card. He Normal Summoned [shd falco], and attacked with both of his monsters directly (Xiaoyu 8000 > 5300). He then Set 1 card and ended his turn.

Xiaoyu drew for turn. He Summoned [bls] from his hand, but Peter’s [a sanc] Summoned [a beag], which destroyed his Set [a mora], Summoning it and destroying [bls]! Xiaoyu Set 1 card to end his turn.

Peter’s Artifact Moralltach was able to take of Xiaoyu’s Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning before he could even use it!

Peter drew [super poly], and switched [a beag] to Attack Position. When he declared an attack, Xiaoyu’s [coth] brought back his [bls], but Peter’s [super poly] ended the Duel then and there!

Peter always had the play to match Xiaoyu’s play on the previous turn, except he was able to capitalise from the advantage he gained! Will he be able to keep up his momentum in the second Duel?

Game 2

Xiaoyu decided to go first again. His opening hand contained [stormforth], [shd beast], [el shd fus], [ssg], and Double Cyclone. He set 3 of them, and passed the turn.

Dragon targeted another Set card, and then Hedgehog’s effect activated, but Xiaoyu chained the targeted face-down card – another [ssg]! He sent [shd squa] to the Graveyard. Then, his [ssg] was destroyed, and [shd hedg] added [shd fus] to Peter’s hand. Xiaoyu’s Squamata then sent [shd beast] to the Graveyard, giving Xiaoyu a free card. He then Tributed Peter’s Hedgehog to Set a monster, which ended his turn.

Peter drew [el shd fus]. He activated [shd fus], using his [shd beast] and [a mora] for [shd construct]. Construct sent Falco to the Graveyard, and Beast let Peter draw [raiza].

He then attacked directly with Raiza (Xiaoyu 8000 > 5600). Peter Set 1 card and passed the turn.

A surp-Raiz-ing Tribute Summon leaves Peter in pole position!

The Construct in the Graveyard targeted [el shd fus], and the Construct activated its effect on the field, but Peter used [shd shekh] to negate its effect and destroy it by discarding [shd fus]. The first Construct resolved, adding [el shd fus], and then the second Construct added [shd fus] to Xiaoyu’s hand. Peter then attacked directly with [shd shekh] (Xiaoyu 5400 > 2800).
