In Part 3 of our National Champions Profile we would like to present you the National Champions of Hungary, Norway and Italy.
Name: Tokos Gábor
What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? Mermails, I like the Deck a lot. I’m playing the Deck now for 5 years straight, ever since they were hit with the first Forbidden & Limited List. Of course, I always adapt to the current metagame and make a few changes. Trickstar is my worst Match-Up due to Trickstar Reincarnation. I have to reveal my cards and when they Chain it, I lose my hand. All the other Decks are fine.
Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? That was against SPYRAL Magicians. We played twice, in Swiss we had a draw and in Tops I won. I had a hard time breaking his board. In the end a well-timed D.D. Crow on SPYRAL Quik-Fix helped a lot.
How did you prepare for this event? I checked the metagame breakdown on coverages and learned how the current Decks work. One of the most important changes to my Deck was taking out Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit and adding Droll & Lock Bird.
Finally, have you had a chance to explore Berlin yet? Unfortunately not, we are already leaving on Monday mourning so I won’t have time.
Final Word Shoutouts to the guys in Szekesfehervar and my friends for cheering for me.
Name: Jonathan Ljungman
Country: Sweden, National Champion of Norway
What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? I was running Gouki at the event. The Deck served me well and I decided to run a similar Deck for today. Actually, I made a lot of changes for this event. I reduced the number of handtraps and added the Sky Striker engine.
Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? Top 8 was really hard. I won by a set Called by the Grave and a handtrap. That was clutch!
How did you prepare for this event? I tried a lot of combos and discussed a lot of theorie. We playtested a lot I wanted ot play a combo Deck. I wanted to find out of the comvo Deck was able to compete and as soona s I waound out that it was I decided to stick with it.
Finally, have you had a chance to explore Berlin yet? It depends on if I scrub out or not. Maybe later…
Final Words? Shoutouts to Team Victory!

What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? Sky Striker Trickstar, I’m running a similar build for this event. I added Phantom Skyblaster to the Deck and I’m really glad I did. The card is really good.
Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? That was my Top 4 match against Pure Trickstar. He had 2 Gozen Match set and completely locked me out of the game until I drew into Psy-Frame Driver, the one card you never want to draw into. But in this case it was my only out to this situation. I tribute Summoned Trickstar Lilybell for it. He had to bounce it back to my Deck with Phoenix, and I drew it again. He couldn’t handle it a second time and therefore I won.
How did you prepare for this event? Most of my friends were on holidays. We met at my house and playtested a lot.
Finally, have you had a chance to explore Berlin yet? It’s a great city, I went to see the stadium where Italy won the World Cup in 2006.
Final Words: Thanks to my team and my friends.
