PostSubject: Garden City Regionals Report.   Tue Jan 07, 2014 4:32 am

Hey guys if you don't know me I'm Phoenix/Pain/PoP and i went to the Garden City, Michigan Regional on Saturday running my hieratic deck. And as requested by Acidik I will post my results, my round by round match-ups, what topped, and what was common at the regional.

The regional was packed having around 350-400 people. The regional started late due to half the staff being sick or something. So instead of starting at 10 it started at 12:30. There were 9 rounds in all and in order to get your invite you had to be in the top 48 players there. Since i had abit of time before the regional officially started i had time to get myself a Ultimate rare star eater, 2 gold rare mst, and 2 overworked for my deck, as well as some other stuff for my collection. I even met up with a few of my friends ( 3/4 ended up getting their invite and one of them ended up getting 8th place with inzektors and the one who didn't top was 49th place so he just missed out on his invite ). After an eternity of waiting they finally announced the pairings and i was put at one of the furthest tables from the top tables ( i was at table 140 ) after a few minute explanation on rules, deck lists, appealing, and stuff like that the tournament finally began.

Round 1: Photons ( 2- 0 )

Game 1: I ended up losing the dice roll and he decided to go first. I opened pretty good seeing as i drew tefnuit, su, hieratic seal of convocation, Mystical Space Typhoon and and maxx "c". Turn 1 he summoned photon thrasher immediately telling me he was playing photons and set two cards. My turn came around and I drew forbidden lance. Then i summoned tefnuit he activated Bottomless trap hole so i lanced tefnuit. I then mst his backrow ( revealing it to be mirror force ). I activated Seal and searched for su. At that point I decided to play it safe and go for gaia and Photon strike Bounzer. After destroying his monster and inflicting damage directly with gaia i ended my turn. He drew and set a monster and ended his turn. I drew and ended up drawing koa'ki meiru drago. From their he scooped cause i had game.

Game 2: I don't really remember much of what happened but i do remember winning the duel with an otk.

Current Record: 1-0

Round 2: Constellars ( 2 - 1 )

Game 1: I don't remember the turn by turn for this game but i do remember losing due to taking the maxx "c" challenge and failing.

Game 2: I remember making first turn stardust and gaia and setting breakthrough skill, decree ( which i just sided in ), and lance. He set 4 backrow and set a monster so during his end phase i activated royal decree. Next turn i drew BLS and summoned it and ended the duel with an otk.

Game 3: I don't remember the details but i also otk him this duel as well.

Current Record: 2-0

Round 3: Bujins ( 2-1 )

Game 1: At this point I didn't have any real experience dealing with bujins, which put me in a position i wanna be in. Game 1 i drew 4 hieratics almost guaranteeing me an otk. But since i lost the dice roll he went first. I thought i was gonna win until i saw turn 1 yamato, 4 backrow, and kaiser colloseum. After finally dealing with that i was at a winning position. He had 2 cards in hand, 1 face down spell/trap and a yamato with only 800 lp left and i had 2900 lp left and had star eater and gaia dragon on the field. I attcked with star eater to go for game but then he activated Honest and the Bujin version of honest and i lost the game.

Game 2: I sided decree and negated all his traps, he didn't get kaiser coloseum this time so i popped yamato and ended up otking him.

Game 3: Again turn 1 yamato with 4 backrow and kaiser coloseum. This time i ended up drawing mst, decree, 3 hieratics and hanzo. I summon hanzo use his effect to search transformation. Set mst, decree, and transformation and its his turn. He ends up ending his turn so i activate my decree then chaining super transformation. I end up getting su and all his traps are negated. Next turn i draw lance. I mst his kaiser colloseum and end up ortking him on the spot.

Current Record: 3-0

Round 4: Geargia ( 2 - 1 )

Game 1; I can't remember the details for the life of me but he ended up winning this game.

Game 2: I sided in decree to handle backrow again. So i drew eset, 2 su, nebthet, decree, and lance. I end up making atum and stardust set lance and decree and end my turn. He ends up setting a card and 3 backrow and ends his turn. I then activate decree. I draw seal of convocation. i activate atum to special nebthet and nebthet tributes su in my hand to pop his monster. I use seal to search my last su. with this i otj with my field being stardust, 2 gaia, photon strike bounzer, and decree with a face down lance.

Game 3: I draw Tefnuit, su, maxx "c", battle fader, and mystical space typhoon.  he sets 2 and ends his turn. I draw into one hanzo. I summon him search transformation, set 3 backrow and end. He draws his card and gets happy cause its the card he needed. he special summons a monster so O activate maxx "c". he gets greedy and takes the maxx "c" challlenge and gets an otk field. he activates trap stun and destroys hanzo then attempts to otk me but i drop battke fader. By this point i already drew my 2nd mst, 2 more hieratics, battle fader, and dark hole. So I mst his backrow. Dark hole his field and then he scoops.

Current score: 4-0

Round 5: 60 card Fire Fist ( 1 - 2 my first loss of the day )

game 1: I went first and drew the worst hand possible ( Both normals, 2 nebthet, transformation, and mst ). Woest thing is i ended up not drawing a single hieratic or ninja card later so i ended up losing.

Game 2: I came back with avengeance summoning stardust and 2 gaia turn one and setting decree and lance. He sets a card + 3 backrow to which i activate decree. I draw hanzo and summon it getting transformation. I attack with gaia and the other 3 monsters and get game.

Game 3: I literally drew the exact same hand as round 1 and ended up losing.

Current Score: 4-1

Round 6: Dark World ( 2 - 0 )

Game 1: I was slightly upset with my winning streak being broken and how i lost so i wanted to make up for it by winning 2 - 0 against this guy. I saw dark world dealings and realized he was playing dark worlds. It didn't matter though as he didn't get golld, silva, or grapha out turn 1. Because of him i discarded the normal i drew and drew seal of convocation and when it was my turn i ended up having seal of convocatopn, 3 hieratics, lance, and hanzo. This allowed me to otk him.

Game 2: I sided in Shadow Imprisoning and overworked. Turn 1 he set 1 card and passed turn. I draw mst and it ended up being soul drain. The cards left in my hand at that point were eset, su, koa'ki meiru drago, shadow imprisoning mirror, and overworked. I summon eset, tribute it to get su and labradorite. Then i xyz for photon strike bounzer. I set my backrow cards attack for 2700 and pass turn. When his turn comes i activate Shadow Imprisoning and he scoops.

Current Score: 5-1

Round 7: Geargia

Game 1 + 2: I ended up getting otk'd both games ( game 1 i just drew crap ) and game 2 my otk was 600 lp short and he drew dark hole and otk me in return.
Current Score: 5-2

Round 8; Fire Kings ( 0 - 2 )

game 1: At this point most of my friends and i were x-2 except for my friend playing inzektors who was X-1. I sat down and my opponent starting playing fire king stuff. Our game 1  was very close ended up lasting 30 minutes long, however I lost that game.

game 2: was also very close and ended up going over time. In the end he had 3100 lp and garunix and he potted into a torrential. He started shuffling his hand of 2 cards. While i was keeping track of the cards. My dad came in the middle of my duel yelling saying he had my McDonalds. This distracted me long enough to lose sight of which card was torrential and when i turned back to our duel the cards were already set. In my hand at this time i had mst and Bls. I drew into su. At this point since i lost track of the torrential i had a 50/50 chance of hitting it since that was my only shot to win. I mst but I hit his bluff mst instead. This ended up making me lose this game/

currrent score: 5-3

Round 9: Six Sams ( 2- 0 )

At this point my friend who ran inzektors had his invite guaranteed as well as my other 2 friends. When they posted the current rankings i was 51st place being this highest place of all those with my record. This means if i win this match i would get my invite.

Game 1: The guy sets 2 face downs and has Shien, gandmaster, and kizan on the field. I Ended up being able to get rid of kizan and gand master via the use of 2 nebthet effect and ended up destroying shien with a field of 2 gaia and a stardust. He draws for his next turn and scoops.

Game 2: He ends up getting shien again, 3 backrow and ends his turn. I summon manage to pop a backrow then i use atum to special su. he uses book of moon to flip face down another hieratic i controlled. At that moment i had confirmed to me by a judge  that you are allowed to tribute a face down hieratic in order to activate a hieratics effect or special summon a hieratic. With that piece of knowledge i use su to tribute my face down hieratic to pop his last back row. i xyz into strike bounzer and get gaia out. destroy shien and inflict damage to his life points. he draws a card and scoops saying he needed mirror force or dark hole to win.

Final score: 6 - 3

With that i awaited the final results and when they were announced i ended up getting 44th place. Not the best place to top but it's still a top none the less.
The top 8 were 2 inzektors, 2 mermails, 2 fire fists, and 2 geargia. A harpie deck made 9th place. The most common decks were geargia, fire fists, and constellars. Mermails and harpies were also slightly cummon. There were a decent number of spellbook players. There were a few dark world plaers around. There were plenty of madolche. And to my surprise very few Zombie, lightsworn, or chaos decks used ( i expected to see some zombies just because of the banlist and people wanting to try the deck out ). If you guys wanna see the top 9 players deck profiles they are on vexxy's channel. if you wanna see my deck you can either go on my channel or ask me to post it here. And thats pretty much it for the long report. Comment on any questions you have.

Geargias are already going strong. Nice. I think this Top 8 can be representative of what is to come this format, at least until Legacy Of The Valiant and Primal Origins. After that, may the lord save us from Bujin and Madolche.

Assuming i'm reading this right, you mean why are they suddenly good, right? Well, the thing that made them a lot worse the past few formats is that they have an awful, awful match up v.s Spellbooks and Dragon Rulers (So the last 2 formats). Plus with the high speed and power, most of the more experienced players flocked to faster decks. However now the format is faster, and has decks such as Bujins and Fire Fists. This makes Inzektors a good meta call, and is why they're doing so good this format.

Dat moment when you realize you don't think about the Meta anywhere NEAR as deep as you should O_e

And thanks for Vexxy's channel, I'll be checking out some of those builds.
