[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] It’s my first YCS ever. At first, I was very nervous going into the event. But after going 6:0 I felt very relieved. I noticed that I’m able to beat all the good players on site. I gained the confidence to come this far. Of course, the support of my friends helped out as well.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] I went with Salamangreat – it’s easy to get the cards and the deck is consistent enough to go through a 15+ Rounds event. I also tried to build me deck towards winning the Mirror Match. I haven’t lost one.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I run [crow] and [b]Called by the Grace[/b] in the Main Deck.
[b]Final Words? [/b] Shoutouts to Team E-Man Games for their support and my friends Artiom, Jakob, Oskar for helping me build the deck.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] I feel good! This is my 1st YCS top overall and I’m happy I finally did it. At all the other events I lost on the bubble. From now on, I will take it game by game and see what comes next.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Salamangreat – it was the deck I had most fun with. My other options were Sky Striker and Altergeist, but this deck seemed like the obvious choice.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] My tech is luck!
[b]Final Words? [/b] Shoutouts to my Team Freilos, to Sven Rebmann, Stuttgart and Neugereut in particular.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] Very good! To be honest, I did not expect to be here this time. I run a deck that I didn’t expect to do that good, but somehow it seems like history repeats itself.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Dark Warrior Danger! Orcust Hybrid – the Orcust combo seemed very interesting and I wanted to build a deck around it. The deck is versatile enough to go 1st and 2nd, so the dice roll is not as important as it is with other decks.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] Nothing in particular.
[b]Final Words? [/b] Shoutouts to my Team Seventh Sense, to all the people that came her with me, especially Rasmus and all the guys from Berlin.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] Excited, it is my 1st YCS top-. I never even made it to Day 2 of a YCS and now I’m here. I feel like all the preparation and playtesting finally paid off.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Salamangreat – I like it a lot. Most of the time, the first turn is the same, but the later turns tend to get very complicated and reward the more experienced player.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I run [e tele] as an additional extender. It helps to get your engine rolling even if you are not holding Gazelle.
[b]Final Words? [/b] Shoutouts to my friends from Chemnitz and my wife.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] Good, my goal was to reach the Top cut, but I don’t mind sitting here. After YCS Chicago this is my 2nd YCS Top 8 in a row and I think my 6th overall.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Salamangreat – generally speaking, I like variety and like to try out new decks. During playtesting, it was the one deck that performed best.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] [b]Fusion of Fire[/b]: I run one copy in the Main Deck and two in my Side Deck. It was pretty good all weekend long.
[b]Final Words? [/b] Shoutouts to Team E-Man Games and to all the guys that helped me build the deck.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] Pretty excited, I’ve only been in the Top 8 of YCS once before!
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Danger! Orcust Hybrid – I run 48 cards and basically tried a very similar strategy like in Liverpool. I put a lot of Side Deck cards in my Main Deck. I run 38 cards for going 1st and 10 more card to go 2nd.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] [b]Neo Space Connector[/b] was pretty good this weekend. My deck is almost identical to Ping Xiau . We played each other in the top 16, which was very unfortunate. I was pretty sad I kicked him out. Now, I want to make it as far as possible. If I had to knock him out, I want to make it worthwhile.
[b]Final Words? [/b] Big thank you to Team Kuribrohs and most of all to my girlfriend.

[b]How do you feel right now? [/b] Great! This is my first YCS Top 8. I’ve already topped Nationals but YCS are something completely different.
[b]What deck are you playing today? [/b] Danger! Thunder Dragon – it was available and before it would get hit by the Forbidden & Limited list I wanted to give it another chance.
[b] Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I run three copies of [b]Levianeer[/b]. It was my MVP card this weekend.
