Top 8 Profiles of WCQ: European Championship 2017

It all came down to this! Well, not quite but the field has been cut down to the Top 8 Duelists of the weekend. Take a look at their Profiles!

After 11 grueling Rounds of Swiss across two days and 6 further Knockout Rounds, there are only eight Duelists remaining. All of them fought hard to get where they are right now and all of them want to go to Worlds! Two more wins separate them for their big goal. Let’s find out what they are playing today.

[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I really want to go to Worlds. Hopefully I will make. It is a lot harder this year, because only the two finalists will earn an invite.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] My deck is pretty standard. I got a couple of good ideas from the latest events I watched.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to all the Danish people and thanks to Konami for this great event.

[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] At the moment I feel like they are quite high. Everything worked out fine for me. Yesterday, I would have told you that they are rather low.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I’m maindecking [shuffle reborn] which was really good this event.
[b]Final words? [/b] I like to understand the game in a different way. I want to get deeper into the logic of the game therefore I will be playtesting even more with my close friends.

[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I guess it’s as good as anyone else. I don’t think that there is anything particular exciting about my deck. I guess I will practice my dice rolling skills.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] It’s quite a regular build. I’m running a lot of draw cards like three copies of [potdes] and [upstart]. There are a lot of unfair cards you want to see early like [soul charge] for example.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to everyone who lend me cards and my team United Gosus.

[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I’m 14:0 right now so I guess my chances are really good. I’m not afraid of the curse. “I am the curse!”
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] [shuffle reborn]: it is a really good card to play around [ghost ogre].
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to my teammates in particular Memoli and Mecozzi, who is also in Top 8.
