Round 6 Feature Match: CJ Vaughan vs Kye Johnston

We’re now heading into round 6. It’s been a long day and players have just two more rounds to play before finding out if they make it back to day 2. This round we have CJ Vaughan from Canberra playing Sky Striker Orcust against Kye Johnston from Brisbane playing Infernoid. Both of them are at 4 wins and a draw so one loss could potentially put them in an elimination bracket.

Duel 1:

R6 CJ hand

Kye wins the die roll and chooses to make CJ go first. CJ opens a hand of Sky Striker Manoeuvre – Afterburners, Reasoning, Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage, Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring and Orcust Harp Horror. He chooses to start with Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage adding Sky Striker Mecha -Hornet Drones, summoning Sky Striker Ace – Kagari and tries to add back Sky Striker Mobilize -Engage. Kye responds with Psy-Frame Gear Gamma to negate and destroy Sky Striker Ace – Kagari and also summon itself and Psy-Frame Driver from his deck. CJ then activates Reasoning. “Oh boy!” exclaims Kye before he calls 3. The first card off the top of CJ’s deck is Orcust Cymbal Skeleton which is sent to the graveyard. CJ sets one monster and ends his turn and this banishes the 2 Psy-Frames.

Kye draws for turn and activates One for One discarding another copy of Psy-Frame Gamma from hand. CJ thinks for a second and then uses Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring to negate. Kye Normal Summons Infernoid Decatron and uses its effect to send an Infernoid Seitsemas from his deck to the Graveyard. Next he activates Monster Gate tributing Infernoid Decatron to send the top 5 cards of his Deck to the graveyard before Special Summoning a second Infernoid Decatron. In the sent cards include a second Infernoid Seitsemas, an Infernoid Harmadik and an Infernoid Patreulea. He is ready to go.

He Special Summons an Infernoid Seitsemas from his Graveyard by banishing an Infernoid Harmadik and Infernoid Patreulea.  He activates Lair of Darkness before entering Battle Phase. He attacks the Set Orcust Harp Horror with Infernoid Seitsemas and then with the Infernoid Decatron and then used its copied Infernoid Sjette effect to banish a card from CJ’s Extra Deck. He then tributes the Infernoid Decatron to banish the Orcust Harp Horror from the Graveyard. Kye then summons a second Infernoid Seitsemas from the graveyard and ends his turn Summoning a token off Lair of Darkness.

CJ draws for turn and activates Sky Striker Manoeuvre – Afterburners attempting to destroy Infernoid Seitsemas but he Kye tributes it to banish an Orcust Cymbal Skeleton. Unable to deal with the second Infernoid Seitsemas, he decides to concede and go to next duel.

Infernoid Tierra activates 2 effects forcing both players to send 3 cards from their Extra Deck to the Graveyard. While CJ chooses 3 monsters he feels he doesn’t need, Kye has built his extra deck for this situation sending 2 Elder Entity N’tss and Psy-Frame Lord Omega. Next up Infernoid Tierra also sends the top 3 cards of each players deck to the graveyard. Now both Elder Entity’s will trigger attempting to destroy Dingirsu, the Orcust of the Evening Star and Orcustrated Babel.
