      the missing card of the main deck is BLS, he says it some pages later in the forum

      Thank you, much appreciated. I assumed that sparizione refers to “Sparizione a Catena” (Chain Disappearance), considering that there is little reason to play “Disappear” when “D.D. Crow” is available.

      now that you make me think about it, it might actually be, unfortunately in the finals he didnt play it so i cant be sure, but since it was a very popular side deck choice you might be right. 🙂
