[b]Age: [/b] 21
[b]Country: [/b] Gießen, Germany
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Paleozoics – usually I don’t like to run a trap heavy deck as they are very reactive, but the deck keeps on winning. In this case it is very different as my traps are also monsters that help me build my board.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I decided to maindeck 2 [maxx] and only 1 [b]Paleozoic Pikaia[/b].
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I hope that we will get a good tier 0 format like the Nekroz format again. Usually these are skilful formats and I’m looking forward to try out the Zodiac Beasts.
[b]Final words? [/b] I will eat the apple after the final. Shoutouts to my Team CCG and Billy Brake for the great feature match.

[b]Country: [/b] Italy, Rome
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] ABC – I was really comfortable with the deck and I feel like it is still one of the most consistent decks in the format.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I still run [tt raffle] and [denko] in my Side Board. [denko] was putting in work against Paleozoics.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] The WCQ and the World Championships. I want to go to Worlds and I think they should be in Europe in 2017.
[b]Final words? [/b] Tanks to my teammates from CCG. Hopefully I don’t lose like last time.

[b]Name: [/b] Marvin Kammerer
[b]Age: [/b] 17
[b]Country: [/b] St. Gallen, Schweiz
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Metalfoes – I think it’s the most versatile deck. I can go second without losing instantly. Kirin is still a strong card.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I run [psiblocker] and [jinzo] in my Side Board. Both made a big difference after sideboarding.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I’m not looking forward to Zodiac beasts. They are far too powerful. What I’m really looking forward to is the next YCS in Prague.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to my friends in Switzerland that lend me cards for my deck.

[b]Name: [/b] Billy Brake
[b]Age: [/b] 26
[b]Country: [/b] Dallas, Texas
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Metalfoes, it’s the most consistent deck and the Pendulum deck is the best game mechanic at the moment.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I’m not using [bw gofu], instead I opted to run [q scout] and [q mono] with three copies of [s art] in my Main Deck.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I’m looking forward to playing [ygo] in the first place and all the great YCSs that are about to come.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to everyone who supports me. I’m doing this for you and myself.

[b]Name: [/b] Eugen Heidt
[b]Age: [/b] 22
[b]Country: [/b] Germany, Frankfurt
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Paleozoics – you always win when you start. It’s nearly impossible to brick with the deck and it’s very unlikely to draw bad hands. The traps are very versatile and it’s hard to find good side board cards against the deck. In fact there is only one real threat to the deck: [denko]. [jinzo] and [decree] are hardly in any deck.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] It’s a fairly standard Paleozoic deck. I’m running [ced], which is an old card that found new strength in Paleozoics. Yeah, I maindeck [maxx].
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I’m a little bit scared of the new Zodiac cards. As from what I saw they are very strong. Prague was always a nice YCS, I’ll be there next year as well.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to Ronny for giving me a snack and to my teammates from CCG.

[b]Name: [/b] Roman Kieser
[b]Age: [/b] 25
[b]Country: [/b] Switzerland, Kriens
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Awesome Hero, I think it’s the best deck going second.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I maindeck three copies of [itv]. There are no other good cards to add consistency to the deck. I also want to point out that I’m playing less monsters than the regular Hero Duelist. You only brick when you have 2 monsters you need to normal summon.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I don’t know yet.
[b]Final words? [/b] I want to give shoutouts to Team Gym and Robin Bachofner. He showed the potential of the deck.

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Paleozoic, I thought it was very consistent and I wasn’t afraid of many cards after side decking,
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] We side solar release for the mirror match.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I’m looking forward our Nationals in 2017.

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Awesome Heros – at first I wanted to play a Dark Synchro deck. But I had to find out that the deck is not strong enough, so I decided to pick this deck.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] [qmf] won me a lot of games. I also run [boe] in the Main Deck.
[b]What are you looking forward in 2017? [/b] I’m looking forward to the Zodiac beasts to win everything.
