9 – 16th, Dexter Dalit (Canada) [Metamorphosis Chaos]
*The deck list did not have the Fusion Deck recorded down. In addition to Thousand-Eyes Restrict, it is likely that he was also running other Fusion Monsters such as Dark Balter the Terrible, Ryu Senshi, etc.
9 – 16th, Cindie Jean Uddstrom (New Zealand) [Burn]
Wait, Ido Marcus has been at the World Championship multiple times?
Possibly, but I couldn’t verify as many of the photos and video from 2005 were too low resolution.
1st Main Deck 41，missing Blade Knight
My main source is the Master Guide 2, and they don’t have Blade Knight listed down in his deck. Do you have another reliable source to verify that he ran “Blade Knight”?
Duel 3rd: Greece use [Blade Knight] and [Hand of Nephthys] special summon [Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys].
You are right. I reviewed the World Championship 2005 video by Konami TV channel and it does seem to be a Blade Knight at the 4:35 mark.
unfortunately i cant find the source but i remember to have read the tournament report by lizarraga himself in a mexican forum, i remember he wrote that the side deck of the world championship was the same he had in his qualification tournament https://www.formatlibrary.com/apr-2005—goat/empty-jar-jorge-fabian-pina-lizarraga-2nd-place-yu-gi-oh-world-championship-august-2005 (this is the list from his qualification for worlds)
Lizarraga’s is such a fun deck to play with.
Cindie Uddstrom (New Zealand) incorrectly labelled as Canadian
