[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Pure Zoodiac
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] Pure Zoodiac, it’s nothing special. My secret tech is good advice from a BIG person that couldn’t play today.
[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] I made a bet with a friend of mine. If he will arrive at the end of the tournament we will eat the whole pot of pasta directly from the cooking point. We want to “stirare”, which means eat until we die.
[b]Final words? [/b] Thanks to my BIG friend and to anyone who believes in me.

[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] [akbj] – it gets a new trap out of nowhere and planning the next turn is so important right now.
[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] We were having problems with the door lock of our apartment. It was not working all the time. Yesterday evening my friends called me and it seemed like the broke the whole door in order to get in. But it was false alarm. Everything was ok.

[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] Before the event I felt like the whole deck is special, but obviously there are more people who had the same idea. I was hoping to surprise my opponents.
[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] Thursday night we came here by bus and after that I spent most of my time playtesting. Sunday evening will be our highlight. We are going to go out and party!
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to Team CCG and a few American guys I talked to that helped me build the deck. Thanks to Luke for the apple. I hope for one place better than last time.

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Pure Zoodiac with handtraps

[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] I summoned [emeral] and drew into [sr take]. I still had Lullaby set and declared [ghost ogre]. My opponent special summoned it to my field and combined with [sr take] I was able to summon [xm] and combo out.

[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I maindeck three copies of Lullaby of Obidience and one [sp swords]. The rest of the deck is pretty standard. The MVP card of the weekend is [void vani].
[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] MY personal highlight is the city of Prague. I also love playing in European events and all the competition around here. Another highlight was getting lucky against Bodhan in the Feature Match during Swiss. I milled two [fairytail] with [bujin kagut].

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] 60 card Infernoid
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I’m teching one [bts] and [enemy]. The latter proved to such great versatile card all weekend long. It either baits out backrow or I take [xm] and combo off.
[b]Personal highlight of YCS Prague? [/b] I took my first loss at the very beginning of the event. I lost my 1st game and felt really bad. I thight I could never make it to the Top 32. Then I won 9 times in row an now I’m feeling very confident.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutout to the UK crew, even those that couldn’t make it.
