[b]What did you play this weekend and why?[/b]
[/p][p]
I chose Inzektors. I think the Deck is one of the fastest in the format and it has strong match-up against a vast majority of the opposing Decks. I think the only Deck that gives me troubles is Dino Rabbit, but I added some cards to my build to improve the match-up.
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
I made Top 64 in the first YCS in Bochum, barely missing the tops. In Paris, I made it to the Top 32, but lost there. I also made the Top 16 to the last Italian Nationals.
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
I’m afraid I didn’t check out the new cards just yet.
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
Yes, definitely!

[b]What did you play this weekend and why?[/b]
[/p][p]
Chaos Dragons – it can throw big monsters on the field fast, which gives Dino Rabbit and Wind-Up Decks a headache! Inzektors are a lot tougher, but that’s where my Side Deck comes in!
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
Austrian National Champion 2010, Top 8 YCS Paris, Top 32 YCS Bochum, Top 32 WCQ: EC Madrid
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
[ccd]!
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
Most likely. Or no, make that most definitely!

[b]What did you play this weekend and why?[/b]
[/p][p]
Wind-Ups – I think it’s the best Deck the format has to offer. It has several combos that can leave your opponent with no chance to get back into the game. It’s a little like Six Samurai and I loved them!
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
UK National Champion, I was 1st after the Swiss rounds in Long Beach (Top 32), Top 16 YCS Brighton and I won Battle of the Kingdoms
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
I can’t quite decide, but I heard [ccd] is really good.
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
Yes, absolutely!

[/p][p]
Wind-Up – I already played it at the YCS Leipzig and did well there, so I figured I should give it another try.
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
Top 32 YCS Leipzig!
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
I only know the Hieroglyph Dragons and [ccd]. I like the new Deck as well as the new powerful card that fits in many Decks!
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
I’m not sure yet. It depends on my other appointments, but I hope I can go.

[b]What did you play this weekend and why?[/b]
[/p][p]
Dino Rabbit – I consider it to be the best Deck as it can answer every other card in the Deck! It’s extremely strong whenever you can start the game!
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
I made Top 32 in Brighton and also reached day 2 in Leipzig!
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
I only checked out a few cards, but [ccd] seems like the standout card in the set, so I’ll go with that!
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
Yes, certainly!

[b]What did you play this weekend and why?[/b]
[/p][p]
Inzektors – I’ve been playing the Deck since their release, I’ve constantly adjusted it and I feel extremely confident with it. I started with 2 [i sword] and 2 [i hop] and when I saw the Deck that Ioannis Mourelatos piloted to the Top 8 in Leipzig, I changed my Deck slightly and ever since, I’ve always been extremely successful!
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
I made day 2 at the European Championship!
[/p][p]
[b]What card from GAOV are you most looking forward to?[/b]
[/p][p]
The new Inzektor support!
[/p][p]
[b]Will you attend the WCQ: EC in Milan?[/b]
[/p][p]
It depends if I can make room for it, but I’ll probably go!

Dark World – it’s a good Deck and it can stand up against the powerful Rabbit Decks. I like the fact that it’s very fast and enjoy playing it a lot.
[/p][p]
[b]What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?[/b]
[/p][p]
I won a WCQ Regional in Montpellier before!

Wind-Up – it’s the Deck I enjoy playing the most. Whenever you can pull off one of the combos, you’ve practically just won the game!
[/p][p]

This is by far my biggest accomplishment. I only did well in regional tournaments before.
