Senyayo (せんやよ) went 6-0-1 (excluding 1 bye) and finished 1 – 2nd in “8th Chubu Championship” (3v3 Team) which had 54 teams (162 participants).
He took out Crystron Quariongandrax to make space for Number 39: Utopia Beyond in the Extra Deck.
Against monsters that cannot be targeted by card effects such as Transcode Talker co-linked with Decode Talker Heatsoul or a Thunder Dragon monster protected by Thunder Dragonlord ① effect, Number 39: Utopia Beyond could reduce their ATK to 0 and attack over them. Number 39: Utopia Beyond could then be used to Xyz Summon Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS – Sky Thunder during Main Phase 2.
YU-YA went 7-0 and finished 1st in “14th Okayama Orbis Cup Team Battle” (3v3 Team) which had 16 teams (48 participants).
He ran 3 Artifact Lancea and 3 Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion in the Main Deck. These two ‘hand traps’ are good against most of the top decks in the current metagame, and at the same time protects his own Prank-Kids from being banished and negated by Called by the Grave.
His build is tuned against Combo decks, running multiple ‘hand traps’ in the Main Deck, and opting to run Spell/Trap removals in the Side Deck.
Kaonashi (かおなし) went 5-2 and finished 2nd in “9th Kinoko CS” (3v3 Team) which had 20 teams (60 participants).
He ran 2 Alpha, the Master of Beasts in the Main Deck. Alpha, the Master of Beasts effect can used to return a Zoodiac monster that was Special Summoned by Zoodiac Chakanine to hand. This ensures that there is a Zoodiac monster in hand for a follow-up play the next turn.
Alpha, the Master of Beasts is an effective answer against the untargetable Transcode Talker co-linked with Decode Talker Heatsoul, and destruction-resistant Thunder Dragon Colossus and Thunder Dragon Titan.
Virtual World takes the lead this week, with Prank-Kids and Zoodiac following behind. The format is slowly shifting towards Combo based decks, while the slower Trap-heavy decks such as Eldlich are starting to fall behind.
Blazing Vortex came with Virtual World Gate – Zhuangwoo for Virtual World, propelling it to the forefront. Blazing Vortex also had Tri-Brigade Kit, Tri-Brigade Rendezvous for Tri-Brigade, bringing it up to competitive status. This set seems a little underwhelming initially, but it has surprisingly managed to create a shift in the metagame.
Pot of Disparity is another promising new card, having boosted the consistency of several decks such as Dragonmaid. Satanantana Rungnoppakunsi had a 2nd place finish with Dragonmaid in “AYT Thailand” held earlier in August. Last weekend he outdid himself and finished 1st with Dragonmaid in “Thai Festival Series – Loi Krathong” which had 250 participants.
