This weekend is the first YCS after the Ban List and will set the
stage for the format to come. Let us take a look at the decks and
feature matches we see today. With a total of 1048 duelists here today,
we should be seeing some interesting decks and some awesome tech.
first deck profile of the day is Frazier Smith's Dragunity deck. You
may know Smith from his YCS Atlanta win with Gravekeeper's. He is here
today with hopes of striking oil twice. The deck list will be posted
after the event.
The Round 1 Feature Match is
Frazier Smith's Dragunities Vs. Josh Smith's Gravekeeper's. How perfect
is it that Frazier is up against the deck he piloted to victory at
Atlanta. This battle of Field Spells is what will draw the deck to
victory. You can read all about this duel here.
we have a second Round 1 Feature Match, Mike Papalazaros' Gravekeeper's
Vs. Jeff Jones' Nordics. Jones will have a tough time working around
Necrovalley, but he is a seasoned duelist and this should prove to be an
excellent duel. You can read all about this duel here.
Jones is a two time winner of the YCS tournaments and has gotten
himself a deck profile with his Nordics. We will be showing the decklist
after the event is done.
Round 2 has come and
the Feature Match is Robbie Stargel's Dragunities vs. Manny Vargas'
Chaos Plants. Stargel's Dragunities are unlike any other here today,
because he runs Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode. Dragunities are well known
for being able to produce Level 8s on the first turn and Stargel is
looking to capitalize on a first turn Stardust with Assault Mode
Activate. Great tech in my opinion. And we have Vargas running Chaos
Plants with a playset of the newly Unlimited Chaos Sorcerer. This could
spell trouble for Stargel's Stardusts, as they are unable to prevent
Exile. You can read this whole feature match here.
second Feature Match for Round 2, this one holds Francisco Brown's
Fableds vs. Paul Cooper's Empty Jar deck. Brown's Fabled deck runs a
subtle Plant engine and will prove interesting. You can read the whole
Feature Match here.
3's Feature Match is Kay Shim's Scraps vs. Christopher Reitz's
Gravekeeper's. Both duelists are undefeated as of this round, this match
will change that. Shim will have a lot of difficulty playing around
Necrovalley, but it should prove a fierce duel. You can read the whole
Feature Match here.
4's Feature Match is Jerry Wang's Miracle Geminis vs. Dakota
Vandawalker's Six Samurais. Miracle Geminis have guided Wang to Table 6
in this round, but Vandawalker is no chump fourteen-year old. He is one
of the top ranked Six Samurai players at this YCS. You can read this
entire Feature Match here.
Round 5 comes along we are getting a Top Table update. The top 10
tables are all undefeated players heading into their fifth round.
Gravekeepers are doing well despite the expectations of many critics. We
see Jeff Jones at Table 5 with Nordics. Thomas Luebke at Table 3 with
Karakuri Machina Plants an interesting, but new choice in deck.
Francisco Rome is at Table 3 as well with Black Salvo Chaos, the newly
Unlimited Chaos Sorcerer is having a lot of play here today. Joshua
Dickerson is the only Gladiator Beast player at a Top Table currently.
You can view the entire listing here.
5's Top Table is the place for the Feature Match with Nicky Lacaille's
Fish vs Marc Hahn's Gravekeeper's. Both decks as I said are undefeated,
but this shall be the downfall of one. You can view the whole Feature
6's Feature Match is Jonathan Barber's Flamvellsworn deck vs. Marquis
Johnson's Gravekeeper's. Both decks have a undefeated 5-0 record and the
Gravekeeper's have the advantage in this match up. You can read the

7 shows us our first view of Blackwings today facing off against Six
Samurai. Courtney Waller's Vayu Turbo build vs. Kuanchang Lai's Six
Samurai. Both duelists are 5-1, giving the winner of this match a strong
shot at Day 2. You can read the whole match here.
4 is hosting Round 8's Feature Match with Sean Coovert's Six Samurais
vs. Anthony Alvarado's Dragunities. Alvarado, winner of a 2005 Shonen
Jump that was hosted in Charlotte, is undefeated, save for 1 Draw. While
Coovert is going in undefeated into this match up. You can read the
entire report here.

decks. Both duelists are 7-1 coming into this crucial round. Let's see
who will break in this match. You can see the whole match here.

Flamvellsworn deck. We saw him win the Round 6 Feature Match and he went
8-1 in Day 1. You can see the whole profile here.
(We will have the deck list up after the event is finished)
10's Feature is Phillip Pena's Six Samurai vs Jacob Haar's Plant
Synchro deck. Haar's deck took a hit with the banlist, losing 1 of both
Dandylion and Debris Dragon, but both players are 8-1 coming into this
round. You can read the whole report here.
11's Feature is Kevin Silva's Dragunities vs. Ramon Mera's Blackwings.
Mera's teching in 2 Spirit Reaper into his Blackwings and gave the deck
the nickname Spirit Wings. Both players have an 8-2 record this round
and we can be expecting a lot of Icarus Attacks flying around. You can
view the whole match here.

duelist Jerry Wang vs. Thomas Luebke's Karakuri Machina Plants. Two
great duelists with two exceptional decks. You can read the whole match here.

X-Sabers, 2 Six Samurai, 4 Gravekeeper's, 1 Empty Jar!, 1 Chaos Plants!,
1 Flamvellsworn, 1 Dragunities, 2 Fish, and 1 Karakuri Machina Plant.
Paul Cooper's Empty Jar deck is a real surprise here. I personally
rooting for the Plant deck (pun intended). Barber's Flamvellsworn deck
is doing incredibly well and I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the
Top 4. This is turning out to be an incredible YCS.
first match of the Top 16 that is finished is the X-Sabers vs Six
Samurai match. Nizar Sarhan and his Six Samurai triumph over Stephen
Silverman's X-Sabers. This leaves only 1 X-Saber deck in the tournament.

have Paul Cooper's Empty Jar deck beating out Glenn Lightfoot's
Gravekeeper's. Elijah Gersten's Gravekeeper's beating Anthony Dignoti's
Chaos Plants. Sean Coovert's Six Samurais defeating Justin Wong's
Gravekeeper's. Jonathan Barber moves to the Top 8 with his Flamvellsworn
defeating Deryck Rothenberger's Miracle Gemini. Nicky Lacaille's Fish
pushing Frazier Smith's Dragunity deck out, leaving no Dragunity decks
in the Top. Calvin Tahan's Fish defeat Thomas Luebke's Karakuri Machina
Plants. and Billy Brake's X-Sabers pushing forward against Camden

Flamvellsworn vs Lacaille's Fish, Cooper's Empty Jar vs Sarhan's Six
Samurai, and Brake's X-Sabers vs Tahan's Fish. Interesting to say the
The first three matches of the
Quarterfinals are finished and we have Coovert's Six Samurai beating
Gersten's Gravekeeper's, Cooper's Empty Jar beating Sarhan's Six
Samurai, and Brake's X-Saber beating Tahan's Fish. This leaves us with
Barber vs Lacaille in the last match to finish.
final match of the Quarterfinals has finished! Nicky Lacaille and his
Fish have defeated Jonathan Barber's Flamvellsworn. This puts Six
Samurai, Fish, Empty Jar, and X-Sabers in the Semifinals.
Semifinals are finished with Coovert's Samurai beating Cooper's Empty
Jar and Lacaille's Fish beating Brake's X-Sabers in a fantastic game
that had to be seen to be believed. The Finals are set, it is Fish

Coovert and his Six Samurai the winners of the Charlotte YCS.
