YCS Sydney 2020 Top 8 Profiles

Top 8 Profile Kota Uenishi

Name: Kota Uenishi

 

Age: 25

 

Location: Osaka, Japan

 

How are you feeling right now? I am feeling very nervous right now.

 

What Deck are you playing and why? I am playing Sky Striker Orcust because the Deck has a lot of resources. I really like this Deck because I have a Galatea, the Orcust Automaton play mat that I won back at home.

 

What cool techs are you playing to give yourself an edge this tournament? I think Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage is the only card that gives me an edge in this tournament.

 

Do you have any shout outs or last words? Shoutout to Kodai for helping me build this Deck!

Top 8 Profile Corey Ganje

 

Name: Corey Ganje

 

Age: 17

 

Location: Sydney, Australia

 

How are you feeling right now? I feel really good because I normally have anxiety going into Day 2. But after I defeated who I consider my most difficult opponent in the top 32, all my anxiety went away.

 

What Deck are you playing and why? Sky Striker Orcust with 53 cards because I realized that there are a lot of cards I don’t want to draw so I dilute the Deck with more cards that I would like to see.

 

What cool techs are you playing to give yourself an edge this tournament?  I’m playing Reasoning in my Main Deck because all my Monsters have different Levels and any monster to Special Summon is great. At worst I Summon Nibiru the Primal Being but that Monster has 3000 Attack Points.

 

Do you have any shout outs or last words?

Shoutout to Frank G, Nathan G and Max G everyone else in my team who helped me build my Deck!!

What Deck are you playing and why? Sky Striker Orcust because it is the proven best Deck.

 

What cool techs are you playing to give yourself an edge this tournament? I am playing Instant Fusion in the Main Deck so I can make a field with El Shaddoll Winda and Dingirsu, the Orcust of the Evening Star. Not many Decks can beat that.

Shoutouts to my friends from Japan! 3 of us made top cut.
