    Do you have the deck list for the top 4 Monarch Matthew Casiero from Australia?

  2. Carlos says:

    How can the Champion summon his cyber dragon infinity?

  3. Samuel says:

    How does the champion summon is crystal wing syncro dragon?

  4. Robert Holmes says:

    Question, why is the champ not running maiden, sage, twin burst combo. You can turn 1 twin burst which is essentially a blue eyes that cannot be destroyed by battle, and anything not destroyed by twin burst is banished.? It’s a common sense move that should be in every blue eyes deck. …And twin burst doesn’t require polymerization if both blue eyes are on the field. Summon maiden, target maiden with sage BOOM 2 blue eyes on the field Turn 1 combo.

    • Akira says:

      Blue-Eyes Twin Burst Dragon is easily taken out by the effect of Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon or Majespecter Unicorn – Kirin. That would leave you with a 2 for 0 card disadvantage.

    • Robert Holmes says:

      Changes I would make, remove black rose synchro, add in blue eyes twin burst dragon(fusion). Remove White Stone of legend and both Maxx c (they are to easily countered just don’t special summon that turn, and as for ws of legend blue eyes are better in the deck than in the hand) add 3 maiden with eyes of blue. Remove two Melody of Awakening Dragon (same reason as ws of legends) add foolish burial and dragon ravine. You now have a killer deck.

  5. John maiden says:

    In shunsuke blue eyes deck, what are the last two trap cards in the main deck?

  6. Scorch says:

    Two little things:
    1.) The link to the Dragon Duel page is not working (same thing with the link between the Dragon Duel page and this one)
    2.) Lorenzo Roma is actually German, not Italian. From what I can tell, he mistakenly had an Italian flag displayed next to his name in the WCQ Europe 2016 livestream. He actually talks about this at the start of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZkhBo4PrTo. Also, there’s this article from the WCQ Europe coverage which lists him as being from Germany: https://web.archive.org/web/20221202022048/https://coverage.yugioh-card.com/top-8-player-profiles-6/
    Thank you for your hard work 🙂

    • Akira says:

      In the CCG video, he said “Hi I’m Lorenzo Roma from Germany, I originated in Italy”. Could it be that he resided in Italy until 2017 then moved to Germany, so he would still be listed as from Italy in 2016?
