15.04.2012 | 15:32 |

It’s time for Top 8! Austria’s Peter Gross has drifted under the radar so far, but his Chaos Dragon Deck is about to shows us all what it’s capable of! His opponent is France’s Jean-Francois Celentano, who’s Grapha’s remaining hope for another YCS title. Let’s see what happens!

Peter Gross is proving that you can win with your own creation!

Gross started with Tour Guide From the Underworld and Summoned another copy from his Deck before Xyz Summoning Wind-Up Zenmaines.

Celentano began with Upstart Goblin, drawing a card. He Set 2 Spell or Trap Cards.

Gross Summoned Sangan and Celentano played Torrential Tribute, followed by Skill Drain. Zenmaines and Sangan went down and Gross added Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter to his hand. Next came Solar Recharge, which discarded Ryko and sent 2 cards to the Graveyard after he drew 2. He Special Summoned Darkflare Dragon and discarded Eclipse Wyvern to banish Dark Armed Dragon and sent Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon to the Graveyard. He then Summoned not one, but TWO Lightpulsar Dragons to obliterate his opponent in a flash!!

Gross takes command of Duel 1!

The Dragons collided with their opponent's Life Points!

Celentano opened Duel 2 with Upstart Goblin, followed by a Set monster and Spell/Trap.

Gross started with Solar Recharge, discarding Ryko to draw 2 cards and send 2 more to the Graveyard. He Summoned Tour Guide From the Underworld, then Sangan. Gross declared an attack and Arcana Force 0 - The Fool was flipped over! In Main Phase 2 he Xyz Summoned Wind-Up Zenmaines and Set a card .

Celentano passed.

Gross played Dark Hole and Zenmaines was safe. He Summoned Eclipse Wyvern and attacked with both monsters as his opponent drew 2 cards for Reckless Greed. Celentano Summoned Gorz the Emissary of Darkness and a Token, the former destroyed in the End Phase by Zenmaines.

Celentano Set 2 Spell or Trap Cards and played Dragged Down into the Grave. That cost Gross his D.D. Crow and Celentano’s Sillva, Warlord of Dark World. Once it resolved Gross played Mystical Space Typhoon to destroy another Dragged Down into the Grave and Celentano Summoned Sillva, Warlord of Dark World. Celentano’s monsters both attacked Zenmaines, destroying it.

Gross activated Heavy Storm, and his opponent Chained Dark Smog. He targeted Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and Gross Chained Mystical Space Typhoon to protect it. Monster Reborn was played to Summon Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, followed by a Normal Summon of Eclipse Wyvern. All 3 monsters attacked (1 Eclipse Wyvern destroying itself in battle with the Token) and Gross banished Dark Armed Dragon.

Celentano Summoned Snoww, Unlight of Dark World and destroyed the remaining Eclipse Wyvern, which banished Gross’s Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon from his Deck.

Gross used Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragons effect to Special Summon Eclipse Wyvern, and took down Snoww, Unlight of Dark World in battle before attacking directly.

Celentano played The Gates of Dark World, banished, Snoww, Unlight of Dark World, discarded Broww, Huntsman of Dark World and drew 2 cards. He Summoned another Snoww, took down Eclipse and Set a card.

Gross attacked with Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and it was enough to win the Match!

Peter Gross progresses to Top 4!

Despite losing, making it to the Top 8 is still a great achievement!
