Round 4: Josse Lormier (Dragon) vs. Sascha Fabian (Wind-Up)
[p]It’s time for Round 4! Josse Lormier is a French Duelist who we last saw at YCS Paris. Once again he’s brought his Dragon Deck to the Feature Match table and this time will face off against Germany’s Sascha Fabian, who is playing Wind-Up. Let’s get right to the action![/p]
[div] Fabian won the roll and started with a Set monster.
Lormier opened with [future]! He sent 2 [redmd][s] and 3 [wyvern][s] to the Graveyard. Next up was [pod] and he chose [tkr] out of his 3 revealed cards. [sarco] next, banishing [reborn]! He Summoned Rai-Oh and attacked into [snowman] which destroyed Lormier’s card. He Set a [st] to finish.
Fabian played [storm] to destroy [future] and [mind], and Summoned [w hun] before Xyz Summoning [w maity]. He Special Summoned [w rat] from his Deck, turned it to [def] and Summoned [w hun] again, Tributing [w maity] to discard [drago]. He Xyz Summoned another Zenmaity and used its effect to get another Rat, which revived Hunter and Tributed Zenmaity to discard Lormier’s remaining card. Fabian Xyz Summoned his third Zenmaity and used it to Summon his third Rat, which revived Hunter to set up an Xyz Summon of . He detached Hunter from it and attacked with both monsters into a clear field.
Lormier drew [drago] and Summoned [redmd] in his End Phase, thanks to [wyvern]. He then did it again to Summon the other [redmd]!
Fabian Summoned [w mag] and activated Zenmaity’s effect. He Summoned 2 [w shark][s] and used them to Xyz Summon [adreus]. He destroyed a [redmd] with its effect, detached another material from  and entered his Battle Phase, with enough ATK on the table to seal the Duel.
Fabian takes the lead!

Fabian Set a monster and a [st].
Lormier attacked with Rai-Oh into [snowman] (again!). he Set 2 [sts].
Fabian Summoned [tgu]! Lormier used [fiendish] and Fabian let it go. He Xyz Summoned [w maity] and detached [snowman] to Summon [w hun]. Fabian lost Zenmaity to [warlord] as Hunter attacked directly. He Set 2 [sts] to finish.
Lormier Summoned [drago] and was hit with [warning]. He then played [future]! He sent the same 5 monsters as he did in Duel 1 to the Graveyard.
Fabian played [mst] on [warlord] and Summoned [w shark]. It changed to a Level 3 and Fabian [xyz]ed [w maity]. He detached Hunter and Lormier played [maxx]. Fabian Summoned [w rabbit] from his Deck. He attacked directly with both monsters. He Set a card to finish.

Fabian [xyz]ed [w maity] and used its effect, only to have it negated by [veiler]. Fabian responded with [bom] to dodge the Veiler though and he Summoned [w mag]! He then [xyz]ed , playing without fearing the [maxx], but [mst] confirmed that he feared (and got rid of) the [future].
Lormier activated [redmd]’[s] effect but wat hit by [sim]. He Chained [mst] and Fabian had another [mst]! Lormier Normal Summoned [drago] and attacked  with a [redmd].
