Round 8 Feature Match: Pierre Breuil vs. Urh Kovacic

21.11.2010 | 9:37 |

To kick of day 2 we have a truly international match with Pierre Breuil from France playing against Urh Kovacic from Slovenia. Breuil plays 37 monsters in his deck and he’s currently sitting on a 5 – 2 record, so he can still make the knock out portion of the tournament.

[nbsp]

Breuil won the die roll and had a starting hand featuring only monsters. He didn’t really mind, that’s what his deck was trying to do anyway. He Set a Monster Card and passed.

[nbsp]

Pierre Breuil can't get enough of his monsters, so he's playing 37!

Kovacic played [duality] and it revealed [dck] among 2 other cards. He picked the monster and played it, attacking into [dandy]. Both monsters left the field (the effect of [dandy] triggered and [dck] negated it with its own effect, destroying itself in the process). Kovacic Set 3 spells or traps and passed.

Breuil simply Set a monster and passed.

Play was back to Kovacic who Summoned another [dck]. He declared an attack and Breuil had to check with a judge if he could activate one of his cards. Breuil discarded [veiler] to get rid of [dck].

Next turn, Breuil Special Summoned [gallis] (no surprise he hit a monster for its effect) and Tributed it together with his Set monster for [ladd]. Breuil flipped [warning], so [ladd] was destroyed and its effect triggered, bringing back [cd]. The Dragon attacked, but fell victim to [prison].

Kovacic Summoned [radiance] and attacked. He passed after setting 2 spells or traps.

[cd] was Special Summoned and it attacked [radiance]. [shrink] was activated during the Damage Step, so [radiance] destroyed [cd] in Battle. [frame] was supposed to come down in Main Phase 2, but another [warning] from Kovacic made sure it would never hit the field. Breuil passed.

Kovacic Summoned [wanghu] and he attacked with both of his monsters for 3300 damage. Breuil was left with only 2650 Life Points.

He thought what he could do with 3 cards on his hand. All of them were monsters. He Set one and passed.

[radiance] attacked over [fader]. [wanghu] dealt another 1700 points of damage.

All Breuil could do in the following turn was Set another monster. It was also destroyed by Kovacic’s [radiance] in battle and [wanghu] dealt the final points of damage to seal the deal!

Urh Kovacic wins the first Duel!

[nbsp]

Playing against Breuil’s deck must feel strange to some Duelists as they only see Monsters on his side of the field. He opted to go first in the second game and drew into his opening 6.

[genex neutron ] was Summoned and it got Breuil [quickdraw] during his End Phase. He passed for his turn.

[cd] was Special Summoned and next in line was [cfd]. [dck] was Normal Summoned and both monsters dealt 2900 points of damage. Kovacic Set a spell or trap and was done with his turn.

[cd] was Special Summoned, but Kovacic had all the answers [dash] he flipped [ro] to negate the Summon for a cheap 800 Life Points. His Anti Deck worked very well against Breuil’s uncommon strategy.

Breuil had to consider his options in his following turn. He still had 6 cards in his hands and would still be able to perform his Normal SUmmon, so he was far from being out of options. He Set [dandy] and passed.

[duality] revealed [dck], [rai oh] and [bth]. [rai oh] was picked and Normal Summoned [dash]. [noc] followed and removed [dandy] from game. That cleared the way for all of Kovacic’s monsters to deal more than enough damage to win him the game!

[nbsp]

Urh Kovacic wins the match!

[nbsp]

Breuil told me that he would have liked to draw [malevolent catastrophe] and [lumina], but he didn’t. It seemed like Kovacic’s deck had a rather favorable match-up against Breuil’s monster mash.
