R3 Feature Match: Marco Sfameni (Batterymen) vs Nicolas Pirasteh (Tellarknights)

We’ve just seen a Deck Profile featuring one of our Duelists in this round: Italy’s Marco Sfameni and his Batteryman Deck. His opponent this round is Nicolas Pirasteh from Paris, France who has decided Tellarknights are going to see him to victory at this YCS. Both players shuffled up and rolled to decide who would start, with the outcome being that Pirasteh’s 2 beat Sfameni’s 1 and the Frenchman would start.

Pirasteh opened with three set [st] and a set monster before passing.

Sfameni discarded [tsh] to search two copies of [batt 9v]. It was Summoned and the effect was activated to search [batt charge]. The Battery attacked over [honest] and the Italian set a backrow before ending, losing his 9-Volt and then his set [coth] to [mst].

Pirasteh passed.

Sfameni Summoned another 9-Volt and searched [batt ind] before attacking again. He set another backrow and experienced deja vu as he lost both to the effect and another [mst].

Pirasteh could only set another [st].

The Italian played his own [mst] on the newly set [prison] before Summoning [batt ind] and attacking, setting a [st] (successfully) this time.

Pirasteh Summoned [sat alt] and activated [soul charge] to bring back [honest].

Both Monsters were used to [xyz] [101] and take the [batt ind] before passing.

[stormforth] tributed [101] to Summon [batt charge]. On the effect, Pirasteh Chained [vane] but a Chained [coth] from Sfameni put enough damage on the board to end the first game!

The Duelists used their Side Decks in silence with Sfameni clearly having far more of an idea of what he wanted to do with his than Pirasteh did.

The Frenchman started the second Duel with a [pod] to reveal two copies of [vane] and a [soul charge]. He took one of the Traps and added it to his hand, shuffling the others back before shuffling all five cards and setting them to his backrow.

Sfameni started with his own Duality to take a [charger] before setting two of his own cards and losing one of them – a [coth] – to [mst].

Pirasteh kept his drawn card in his hand and passed while the Italian played another Duality to take [trap stun], setting two more backrow and a monster.

Such face-down, very set, much passing.

The French Duelist drew to two in hand and set one of them to make five total again before passing.

In the Italian’s Standby Phase he flipped [trap stun] but it was sent back to the Deck courtesy of [wiretap]. He flipped [batt micro] and ran in to [vane] before attacking for 100.

Pirasteh passed again and ate another 100 to the face on Sfameni’s next turn. He added a third [st] before allowing play back across the table.

Pirasteh finally had a play: [rota]! [sat den] was searched and Summoned but when the effect was declared [rug] ended that plan… or would have done if not for [alpha]! He drew and searched out [sat alt]. Two more backrow joined to make four and marked the end of his turn.

[batt micro] went to [def] and Sfameni’s freshly set [coth] met a [mst].

[sat vega] got [sat alt] in to play which returned [sat den] in [def]. Another Altair was searched and suddenly Pirasteh’s position was a lot more appealing.

[castel] was [xyz]ed using [sat den] and [sat alt] and the effect was used to send Micro Cell back to the Deck. Attacks were made successfully and Pirasteh passed.

[puppet] was used to take control of Altair and [trap stun] was met with [coth] which in turn met [mst]. [stormforth] was used to tribute Castel for [batt charge] which [ss]ed [batt 9v] and searched [batt fuel] and the effect was used to bounce one of the set [st]. Sfameni flipped [charger] but [cycle reader] Banished the target. This left Pirasteh to attack with all of his Monsters and attempt an [xyz] but was reminded that [stormforth] stops that from happening. In the End Phase he lost his 9-Volt and Altair was returned.

Pirasteh had his second [sat alt] to return [sat den] and search a third Altair. He [xyz]ed another [castel] and returned Sfameni’s only monster before attacking.

Sfameni discarded [tsh] to search two copies of [batt 9v].

[h2]Nicolas Pirasteh evens the score and we are going to game three![/h2]

The Italian started things off in the third and final game with 14 minutes left on the clock. [tsh] got two copies of [batt 9v], one of which was Summoned to search [batt charge]. He set two and lost his Monster in the End Phase.

[sat unu] was first and pitched [sat den] from the Deck to the Graveyard. [sat unu] attacked and the French Duelist set three. In his End Phase [batt 9v] was returned through [coth] and searched [batt fuel].

Sfameni drew and flipped [trap stun] in his Standby Phase. He had [mst] to deal with [coth] and then played [stormforth] to tribute [sat unu] and Summon [batt charge], followed by [batt 9v] and two copies of [batt fuel]! It was a huge amount of damage and ended the game in a single turn – exactly what the Deck tries to do!

A great OTK from the Italian Duelist!
