Hometown: Reiskirchen (near Gießen, Germany)


Deck you played this weekend: Wind-Up


What’s been your toughest match this weekend? The Top 16 match. I had to play another Wind-Up player, the game went to time and it was really, really close!


What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship? It’s a huge honor to be representing Europe at Worlds! I’m really looking forward to it!


What’s your favorite Deck of all time? While I didn’t actively play at the time, I tried the Goat Control Deck and I really enjoyed all the card interactions and playing in this classic format that all of the veterans are always talking about!

Age: 19


Hometown: Barcelona


Deck you played this weekend: Inzektor


What’s been your toughest match this weekend? I got paired against a friend in Round 6 and we both knew the contents of our Decks. I thought about simply giving him the win so he could continue his winning streak, but I eventually played the match and ended up in the Top 4.


What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship? I really want to experience the Japanese culture first-hand! I really like Anime and Manga and I heard their cities are really impressive. I can’t wait to see them!


What’s your favorite Deck of all time? X-Saber! I won my country’s National Championship with it!

 


I told you not to underestimate the Greeks. Michail Paraschos showed us again why!

Age: 18


Hometown: Thessaloniki


Deck you played this weekend: Chaos Dragon


What’s been your toughest match this weekend? Oh, that’s a tough question. I played a Dino Rabbit player and the game went back and forth. It was so intense, I can’t even remember most of the details. It happened during one of the Swiss rounds yesterday!


What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship? I really just want to see Japan! I love Anime and look forward to seeing some in the country it originated from.


What’s your favorite Deck of all time? I can’t decide between the French Twilight Deck and the X-Saber Deck with Rescue Cat. French Twilight had so many boss monsters, it was lots of fun Summoning them all to the field one after another and starting to lay the beatdown on opponents! X-Saber had Rescue Cat and it was one of the best cards to draw into in literally any stage of the game.

 

Stefano Memoli has been to Worlds before, maybe he can win it this time?!

Age: 25


Hometown: Milan, Italy


Deck you played this weekend: Wind-Up


What’s been your toughest match this weekend? My Top 16 Match. I played a friend and I had Wind-Up Magician and Wind-Up Shark and he had next to nothing. I did not want to continue playing as I didn’t want to kick him out of the tournament. We were both close to tears. I think from then on, it can only get better!


What are you looking forward to the most at the World Championship? I have a lot of friends that will help me prepare for the tournament. This will definitely be lots of fun, but I’m afraid the Japanese girls might turn out to be a litte distracting.


What’s your favorite Deck of all time? I played an Anti Meta Deck in 2010 and it helped me to make it all the way to the Semi Finals of the European Championship 2010, so I could go to Worlds thanks to it!
