    Small typo, but you forgot the “L” in the name of Vincent Wielandt.
    btw I appreciate you putting up this historic information, keeping it accessable.

      Fixed. Thanks for pointing out. Many of the early sources had a few spelling errors as they were transcribed by people who attended the event.

    Is that correct back in 2006 the ocg only gadgets used by the japanese players were allowed in the worlds? The tcg meta was almost only chaos return/recruiter and gadgets were release in the early 2007. I presume the “gadget deck” was used by the player in the japanese National (also wc qualifier)

    • Akira says:

      You are right, those were the decks they played for their Nationals. Master Guide 2 had them listed under World Championship 2006, but V Jump October 2006 issue was clearer in stating that these 4 deck lists were played during the qualifier. Corrected the mistake. Thanks!

    Dark world chaos is undoubtedly the most fun deck to play with in that format!

    http://www.hobbyandgolf.it/htmlserie/immagini/Lista%20CDM.pdf this is the list of dario longo’s deck in worlds, this is the site of a store where dario used to work and it was been written by him so i think it’s 100% accurate, the main deck is the same, just the fusion and side deck have little differences: in the side deck he played metamorphosis instead of dust tornado, and the fusion deck was only 14 cards, he didnt paly ojama king
