Round one today, and over on the {stream} we have Nadir Babo and Luca Chetoni while here on the written side we have Germany’s Robert Woltag, 25, playing Shaddolls taking on Spain’s on Alvaro Peña, 17 from Bilbao. He’s come with Prophecy and hopes to start his first YCS with a win.

Peña started with five cards and Summoned [sb mag] searching [sb sec]. He activated [sb cres] searching [sb fate], [sb master] and [sb tower] and the Tower was selected randomly. Secrets searched out Master which revealed Tower to search out Fate. Tower was activated and three backrow cards ended the Spaniard’s first turn.

Woltag activated [foolish] to send [shd drag] to the Graveyard. It targetted a set [bom] which was Chained. A set card in each zone passed the play back to Peña.

He flipped his Magician to fish out a Secrets which got another [sb mag]. It was Summoned and used to find [sb wisdom]. [sb power] was used and when the Magician attacked [a sanc] was flipped. It fished [a mora] out which destroyed the Magician. Peña set another [st] and passed.

Woltag flipped his set [shd hedg] and searched [shd fus]. [mathe] was Summoned and sent a [shd drag] to the Graveyard, attempting to destroy a Chained [reckless].

In the Battle Phase, Hedgehog went to attack and Peña flipped [sb fate] Banishing two cards for the cost. Woltag allowed it to go through and the Magician was set before being destroyed, searching out [sb eternity]. Mathematician and Moralltach both struck directly.

Peña didn’t get to draw for turn but Tower put back Fate and gave him a card anyway. Eternity got back Secrets which was played. Peña checked how many cards in Woltag’s hand – four – and searched a [sb master]. He Summoned [justice] and used Master to copy Power and attack over the Hedgehog. From using Power he got [sb eternity] and in the End Phase Banished [justice] to search [hpop] and [sb sec]. He passed with just his Tower and one [st].

[shd fus] was Woltag’s play discarding [shd hedg] and [felis] to Fusion Summon [shd construct] and send [shd beast] to the Graveyard, searching [shd squa]. The effect of Beast netted him a card – the attacks that followed were enough to win the first game!

Both players vigorously used their Side Decks – you could guess what cards Peña would be using in the second and third games! The Duelists discussed their plays while shuffling with Woltag mentioning he was happy he didn’t snipe the set [sb fate] in the last game as he knew which one of the three it was and there were no surprises for him after that. Peña reeled that there was no protective Traps for him in the last game.

He began the second with a set to each zone.
[mst] wiped out his [ced] and [shd fus] dropped [shd falco] and [shd beast] to Fusion Summon [shd winda], getting his Falco back and drawing from Beast. In the Battle Phase, [sb mag] was defeated and searched out a [sb sec]. A set [st] passed play.

Peña drew and played [noc] on the set Falco. Another was Banished from the Deck – a spanner in the works for Woltag. [justice] was next and [sb sec] searched the Deck for [sb tower]. It was activated and before Peña could progress to the End Phase Woltag flipped [a sanc] to search [a mora] and destroy the Justice.

Both Monsters attacked on the next turn to leave Peña on 3700. A single [st] was decided on for Woltag before passing.

Tower got Peña an extra draw on his turn and [sb mag] was Summoned searching out Secrets to fetch Master. [sb power] was activated followed by the Master to copy it. In the Battle Phase a second [a sanc] was flipped to search out another [a mora].

Peña reeled, it was the only card he didn’t want to see as he had a [sb wisdom] in his hand but that couldn’t stop the destruction effect of the Artefact! The damage on the field was more than enough to end the game on the next turn and both players shook hands to signify a match well played.
