Round 5 Feature Match: Jonathan Krauß vs. Florian Chitic

In the sixth round, we had (for the first time of the day) two German Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG players at the Feature Match table: Jonathan Krauß had to face Florian Chitic! Not only are they two well-known Duelists in Germany, Chitic also plays a pretty creative Deck which is why we wanted to document this Match.

Krauß won the dice roll and directly opened with [rai oh] and three face-down Spell/Traps.

Chitic also didn’t hesitate for a second: He Special Summoned [cd] to which Krauß responded with [bth]. Thus, Chitic simply Special Summoned another copy of [cd] and proceeded by declaring an attack which forced Krauß to activate his [bom] and flip [cd] face-down. In his Main Phase 2, Chitic Set a Monster Card next to [cd], then he activated [cs] swapping his just Set [shining angel] to Krauß.

Krauß Summoned [darius] and attacked the face-down [cd], shuffled [darius] back into his Deck with its effect in order to tag out [murmillo] to destroy [rai oh]. He then ended his turn.

Chitic was still really cool and Summoned [tomato]. He used it to attack the face-down monster (his recently Set [shining angel]), then he searched his Deck for a [ddwl] which ran over Krauß’ [murmillo] but did not remove it. Play was back to Krauß.

He stared at his face-down [dust], then he Summoned [prisma] revealing [gyzarus] and sending [bestiari] into his Graveyard. Thereon, he attacked Chitic’s [ddwl] for the first damage in the game and the removal of both [prisma] and [ddwl], and ended his turn.

Chitic attacked Krauß’ Life Points with his [tomato], Set a Monster Card and ended his turn.

Krauß Summoned [laquari] and immediately attacked [tomato], Chitic used its effect to Special Summon [sangan]. Krauß continued by returning [laquari] to his Deck in exchange with [darius]; Special Summoned [bestiari] with [darius]’ effect and eventually – after having returned his two Gladiator Beasts to his Deck – Special Summoned [gyzarus] to destroy Chitic’s two monsters; however, Chitic could add an [effect veiler] to his hand due to Sangan’s effect.

In his own turn, he Summoned [shining angel] and activated [smashing], then he attacked for 1400 damage.

Krauß again Summoned a [laquari] and attacked [shining angel] so that Chitic could Special Summon another [shining angel]. After that, Krauß decided to use [laquari]’s effect and Special Summoned [equeste] so that he could get his lost [murmillo] back from his Graveyard.

Chitic was delighted when he drew his [pot of duality], in no time activated it and revealed [decree], [bom] and [dark hole]. He picked [dark hole] and shuffled the other two cards back into his Deck. Then, he Tribute Summoned his [shining angel] for [caius], targetting [equeste] and attacking for some more damage.

Krauß could just Set a monster during his turn.

Chitic destroyed the Set [hoplomus] with [caius] and play was back to Krauß.

He didn’t seem to motivated and only Set a Spell/Trap.

Chitic simply went on by attacking for some more damage and again ended his turn.

Krauß repeated his second last turn, that is to say he only Set a Monster Card.

In contrast, Chitic Summoned [tomato], followed by a [cs] which made Krauß thinking a lot. He couldn’t do anything, so Chitic simply attacked his own [tomato], searched for another [tomato] and attacked for the victory!

Florian Chitic’s Mystic Tomatoes lead him to a 1:0!

Chitic was leading 1:0 after a rather easy game for him!

Krauß for sure also wanted to open the second game. He anew did so by Summoning [rai oh] and Setting two face-down Spells/Traps.

Chitic only Set one card back row and a monster, during his End Phase, Krauß activated [mst] which destroyed Chitic’s [oppression].

Krauß seemed to like that, he Summoned [banisher] and attacked the face-down [ryko] which destroyed Krauß’ face-down [chariot]. Instead of proceeding by attacking with his [rai oh], Krauß wanted to end his turn when Chitic remarked that Krauß was about to forget to attack. Krauß stated “I didn’t forget it, I didn’t want to.”

So, Chitic activated [dark hole], followed by [reborn], targetting [rai oh]. He declared an attack with [rai oh] and Krauß didn’t do anything against it. After the Battle Phase, Chitic ended his turn.

Krauß Summoned [equeste] and Special Summoned [test tiger], tributing [test tiger] and returning [equeste] to his Deck. Then, he tagged out [murmillo] to destroy [rai oh], which Chitic wanted to avoid with [rai oh]’s effect, but thanks to a judge he learned that he couldn’t. Krauß hereupon attacked into [fader] and ended his turn after having Set a Spell/Trap.

Chitic Tributed his [fader] for [cd], then he attacked [murmillo] and ended his turn.

Krauß could not do more than Set another monster before play was back to Chitic.

He activated [pot of duality] and chose [tomato], hereon he Summoned [tomato] followed by a [cs]. Once again, he proceeded with his Battle Phase; attacking his own [tomato] with [cd]. He dealt additional 1000 damage to Krauß’ Life Points with the help of a [sangan] he Special Summoned with [tomato]’s effect.

So simple and yet so effective, Cyber Dragon and Sangan!

Krauß didn’t seem to like the situation, he only had two cards in his hand and one Set Spell/Trap. He stared at them for a long time until he eventually Summoned his [bestiari] and attacked the face-down [hoplomus]. Then, he returned [bestiari] to his Deck and brought [laquari] to the field, hoping to survive in this way.

Chitic Summoned [shining angel], switched [hoplomus]’ Battle Position and attacked with all of his monsters for the second game and the Match!

Chitic’s searching monsters overran Krauß’ Gladiator Beasts!
