01.09.2013 | 15:31 |
Welcome to the top 16 of YCS Brussels! In this round we have Italy against Germany! Andrea Zenari will take on Peter Heider - one of these two Duelists will continue on to the top eight while the other will be so close but yet so far. Zenari started us off with with Pot of Greed netting him two cards. He Normal Summoned Toon Gemini Elf and set two cards to the backrow before passing. Heider looked at his hand and exhaled heavily before setting four Spell/Traps and passing.

 

Peter Heider would have to work hard to make it to the top 8!

Zenari Summoned Bull Blader and entered his Battle Phase. Blade attacked for 1600 and the elves followed - running into Memory of an Adversary. The Italian passed after setting a third card in the back. Heider decided his best move was just to set a monster. It was revealed to be Cyber Jar! When it was attacked it gave Zenari a Tardy Orc, Goblin Elite Attack Force and Gene-Warped Warwolf in attack while Heider got Magician of Faith, Exarion Universe and Dandylion all in face-down defence.

 

I know I've said it before but CYBER JAR!!! CYBER JAR!!! CYBER JAR!!

Faith and Exarion bit the dust and Heider Special Summoned Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon. Goblins declared an attack on the kinda-purply-thorny-ish Dragon. In the Damage Step Spikeshield with Chain made sure it came out the victor. Zenari set Spell/Traps until he had four, and play was back with the German. He took Toon Gemini Elf in the End Phase.

 

It's sad to see your own monsters on your opponent's side of the field!

Pot of Greed was first - "too late for the Magician but still good" he commented. He entered his Battle Phase and declared an attack with the elves, sending them hurtling at Gene-Warped Warwolf. Zenari thought about his options before deciding not to respond to the attack. In the Damage Step Heider flipped Metalmorph to boost it to 3200 attack for the battle. It discarded Ancient Gear Golem from Zenari's hand and Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon went to attack Tardy Orc. In the Damage Step the Italian flipped Mirror Wall to make sure the Orc stayed on the field and the Dragon met an untimely end. Heider set until he had three sets and the Metalmorph. Zenari drew for his turn and flipped Embodiment of Apophis. He Tributed both of his monsters for Ultimate Tyranno and used Riryoku to boost it! It was sent into battle on the elves and Heider had Power Frame! It didn't stop Tyranno from taking out the set Dandylion and it's Tokens. It then was ruled that it needed to attack the elves again. It met Mask of Weakness and was slain by the Spellcasting elves, which stripped another card from Zenari's hand - Photon Thrasher. Fiend's Sanctuary was next for heider. He Tributed both Tokens for Pyrotech Mech - Shiryu and both of his monsters went to defence thanks to Zero Gravity in the damage step. In the End Phase Heider took 1000 damage.

 

Zenari didn't have many options...unless he had Monster Reborn...dun dun dunn!

Zenari flipped Monster Reborn on his Ultimate Tyranno! He Summoned Pitch-Black Warwolf and attacked all monsters on the German side of the field and then directly. It was all over on the next turn as Heider had nothing to come back with!

Italian Andrea Zenari takes the first game!


Heider started us off in the second with three to the backrow and Alexandrite Dragon. Zenari Special Summoned Photon Thrasher and attacked, getting hit by Mask of Weakness and losing his Thrasher. In Main Phase 2 he Normal Summoned Goblin Elite Attack Force and set two Spell/Traps. Heider Summoned Machine Lord Ür and passed. The Italian drew and was looking at a hand of Card Guard, Bull Blader and Call of the Haunted. He chose to Normal Summon the Card Guard and then used his Goblins to attack the Alexandrite Dragon. Power Frame put a stop to that - however meant the Goblins would stay in attack. Card Guard attacked over Machine Lord Ür and Zenari set his Call before passing. Zombyra the Dark was Heider's response. It declared an attack on Card Guard and was met in the Damage Step by Mirror Wall! Heider passed.

 

Zombyra did not calculate the crushing effects of Mirror Wall!

Mirror Wall was too expensive for Zenari to want to keep so he sent it to the Graveyard. He Normal Summoned Bull Blader and sent it flying at the Dragon with it's effect. Breakthrough Skill made it lose out in that exchange. Goblin Elite Attack Force crashed with the Dragon and Card Guard attacked directly. Heider prayed for Pot of Greed from the top but didn't get it. He set a monster. Zenari Summoned Gene-Warped Warwolf and moved Card Guard's counter to it. It attacked Dandylion and then a Token bit the dust. After praying for Pot again Heider failed to hit it and set another monster - revealed to be Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts which spawned more Tokens. Zenari set a monster before passing. Heider Summoned Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer and passed. The Italian flipped his own Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts. Tokens bit the dust and Gene-Warped Warwolf went after Kycoo. Rush Recklessly helped win the batter and the counter was removed from the Warwolf.

 

This field would end up too overwhelmind for Heider to handle!

In Main Phase 2 Zenari Summoned Toon Gemini Elf. Heider set a backrow and switched Kycoo to defence. Time was called the turn before so this would be the first of three extra turns. Zenari drew and sent Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts to attack Kycoo. It was the worst thing he could do as Spikeshield with Chain had him take lots of damage. Bull Blader did the job though and removed Kycoo from the equation - leaving the path to victory free!

Zenari will be moving on to the top eight!
