Round 2: Klaus Krieger (Sea Lancer) vs. Shaun Godly (Inzektors)
Round 2! Germany’s Klaus Krieger faces off against Britain’s Shaun Godly. For both this is their second YCS, their previous ones were both in their home countries (Bochum 2013 for Krieger, Sheffield for Godly). Let’s see how they get on!
Godly played [pod], adding [trooper] to his hand. He Summoned it and sent 3 cards to the graveyard (including [ladybug]) to boost its ATK. He Set 1 card.
Krieger discarded [dupe] to Summon [swap], sending [ronin] to the Graveyard. [swap] went back to his hand, and he sent another [dupe] to the Graveyard to Summon it, sending another [ronin] to the Gravyeard. Krieger sent [submarine] this time to Summon [swap] again after it went back to his hand, and a third [ronin] went to the Graveyard! He then sent it back again and Normal Summoned it! Finally, Krieger sent [dupe] to the Gravyeard. “ So… full Grave… attack?” [swap] took down [trooper]. Krieger banished 2 [dupe][s] for 2 [ronin][s] and then [xyz]ed [ggg]. [swap] went back to his hand and he Set 1 card, what a turn!
[i]Life Points: 8000-7400[/i]
Godly [ns]ed [i fly] and then equipped [i bug] to it. Krieger responded with [bom] to flip down Dragtonfly.
Krieger Summoned [swap] again and sent [unifrog] to the Graveyard. [swap] attacked into the face-down Dragonfly, but didn’t have enough ATK to take it down! [swap] went back to his hand as he Set a card.
[i]Life Points: 7600-7400[/i]
Godly equipped his Ladybug back to Dragonfly, and boosted it by 2 Levels. He Summoned [i pede], which brought back [ladybug], boosted its Level, and Godly added [i hornet] to his hand. Both of Godly’s monsters were Level 5 now, and he [xyz]ed [i stag]. He used its effect and equipped Krieger’s [ggg] to it. He played [coth] next, brought back [i fly] and used it to equip [i hornet], followed by [i sword]. Both equipped cards quickly went to the Graveyard as Ladybug and Centipede were Summoned. Hornet was equipped to Centipede, and Godly destroyed Krieger’s [coth]. Krieger Chained it to Summon [dupe], which was ultimately destroyed and gave him a [swap]. Godly got a [i mantis] from [i pede]. Godly Xyz Summoned [gaia dragon], followed by , which detached a Material. Godly then Summoned [tgu]! “Unfortunately it comes from the hand” he remarked as he Summoned another monster, before Xyz Summoning ! He revealed [i mantis] and equipped it to [i bug], which equipped [i hornet] from the Graveyard. [i sword] ultimately made that ladybug have 3500 ATK (!) and Godly attacked for game with his swarm of monsters!

Godly brought back and used Ladybug again “and I’ll now play a million cards to try and go for game?”. He did just that, though was also considering whether his opponent had [fader]. “Oh… I could make the Prize Card!” “You can Summon [dig]?” “If I had one, yeah!” You can tell this was an enjoyable and relaxing game for both of them, despite how many cards were hitting the table. After Godly’s bug combos he attacked with all of his monsters, seeing a [gorz] in return! Following that he Summoned  and destroyed Gorz!
[i]Life Points: 300-8000[/i]
Krieger Tributed his Token for [lancer], using it to equip 3 cards to itself, and when it was about to attack Godly flipped [roar]! “I think… I think that’s game.” Krieger ran the numbers but unless he could get rid of  this Duel looked like it was over. He passed.
Godly declared an attack with Volcasaurus, and during the damage Step revealed [lance] to seal the Match!
