5 – 8th Calvin Ang DARK Warrior Phantom Knights Orcust

Despite Salamangreat and Altergeist having a majority showing in the Top 16, they were quickly knocked down to just 1 each in the Top 8.

The final match was a song of water and fire – Winson Lim with Frog Paleozoic against Yong Qian Rui with Salamangreat.

Duel 1, Winson went first and was able to fill his graveyard early with Paleozoic Marrella. A Compulsory Evacuation Device on Lady Debug denied Qian Rui of his combo and that gave Winson the tempo to control the game with Toadally Awesome.

Duel 2, Qian Rui went first and setup his board. Winson could not deal with Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf and was slowly grind out of resources.

Duel 3, Swap Frog allowed Winson to setup an early Toadally Awesome. Qian Rui’s Trap-heavy build bricked at the most ill-timing as he drew a hand of Salamangreat Trap Cards and Salamangreat Sanctuary but not a single Salamangreat monster. Winson flooded the board on the next turn and went for an One-Turn-Kill with Borrelsword Dragon.
