WCQ Seed Tournament Report

Went to GA early today and end up waiting for the shop to open. A lot of big names showed up today because there wasn't really a lot of tourneys lately I guess.

Deck used : Hieratics (cause I don't have FGD, or I would be playing Chaos Dragon)

Match 1 : VS Agent Angel

Duel 1 : I open an OTK and won.

Duel 2 : He sided in Mask of Restrict and I can't get rid of it.

Duel 3 : He open Valhalla and Krystia, I manage to put the Krystia face down with Book and got the 2 normal monsters out. My opponent has 2 hands, I was worried bout Herald of Orange Light; but I figure my opponent would just special Krystia next turn and crash into Focus Force, I made Atum, but he did had Herald.



Off the a bad start, I don't usually lose my first match, but a loss is a loss.

Match 2 : VS Dark World

Duel 1 : I checked his grave and made sure he had no monsters, Dark Hole and Reborn his Grapha. Wack for game after a few turns.

Duel 2 : I open Drago and unbelievably, his has no answers.



Match 3 : VS Hieratic - Kyde

Duel 1 : He open with an OTK and won,

Duel 2 : I open Drago and kept it on the board and won.

Duel 3 : I play Smashing Ground on his Drago, Reborn it, and proceed to win.



Match 4 : VS Inzektors - Parameswaran

Duel 1 : I open OTK and won.

Duel 2 : He set a facedown, I was about to make Photon Bounzer to take care of his facedown, because Mike keeps reminding me about Morphing Jar 2, but I don't think anyone other than him would play the card, so I made Gaia, Red-Eyes and Su, attacked, and hit Jar #2 ... Lost because I contributed 3 cards on a stupid Jar.

Duel 3 : I open POD into Cardcar, drawing POD. He sets a monster, passes. I POD into another CardCar and drew 2 more. I now have double Macro and Torrential set. He sets another monster. I top decked my 3rd CardCar and proceed to draw. My opponent normal summon Gruf and ended up in Torrential. I won the next turn since he has nothing else to do.



Match 5 : VS Inzektor - Ivan

Duel 1 : He has thick backrows and I can't get pass then.

Duel 2 : The same as above.



At this time, I thought I scrubbed but manage to squeeze into Top 8 thanks to my tie breaker.

Top 8 : VS Junk Doppel - SungLee

Duel 1 :  He set a S/T then a monster. I open MST, did a Hieratic OTK, Exa-beetle sended a Dandylion into grave but I made 2 Gaia to pierce through Fluff tokens.

Duel 2 : I have Drago out, he plans to do a Junk Syncron play, I had Maxx C, he failed to kill Drago. My advantage is just too big now.


Top 4 : VS Inzektor - MK

Duel 1 : I open OTK and won.

Duel 2 : I thought I had game but he had a couple of Battle Fader (which I did not expect, and sided out Drago), he almost turn the game around but luckily, I top deck Eset and play MST to destroy his Call of the Haunted (equipped to a Centipede with Gigamantis and Zeck-callibur).


Finals : VS Inzektor - Mike (yes the blogger dude)

Duel 1 : I open OTK and won.

Duel 2 : He paysback with an OTK on his side.

Duel 3 : I couldn't remember well, but this is easily the best game of the day, and one of the best games I had in a while. Both of us basically had really low LP and are top decking. I ended taking the game by making Ancient Sacred Wyvern (at 2500), setting double Macro and a Chalice, while he was top decking.

So fast?! Congrats on the win! I'll definitely find my way to the top tables for a revenge match.

KuGeL said...

Can you post your extra deck too plz?

LFN said...

Congratulations on your win :)

GQ said...

@KuGeL : Just did

Anonymous said...

Against what match up did you side in decrees? Is there anything you would change to the deck after winning?

GQ said...

Decrees were in there for Dino Rabbit mostly, and in some cases Antimeta, GK and maybe chain burn or something, faced none.

I took out the 2nd Smashing, I've only sided in 1 copy every time I need it, and it works. That would be a 3rd Chalice or a Lance, depending on how I further tune this deck

KuGeL said...

Thx GQ, also grats for your win. I see you dont playing Gustaph Max, mind to explain the main combo of the deck ? I mean i know how it works but i've been OTK'ing with Gustaph , without him i cant see how it turns out to be an OTK

GQ said...

@KuGeL : We cant use Gustaph Max or any other promos in our format.

This deck usually OTKs with me having REDMD in hand. I make Atum, bring out REDMD from deck, banish it, make ExaBeetle, attack for 8000 with 2 Gaia and a REDMD.

If I don't have REDMD, I stall my games for it, since my deck mains a lot of stall cards and I have Triple POD and CCD.

Basically, I only have 1 OTK pattern for this deck, but I don't absolutely need it to win. I can always play control, unlike most Hieratics I see here (which tries to do too much), I just play the good old "stall, control and blow your ass out" game

Anonymous said...

Sorry for my misguided TCG player comment, but what do you take out for macro, and what matches do you put it in for? (Obviously inzektors for one)

GQ said...

For inzektor match up, I side in 3 Macro, 2 Forbidden Chalice and a Smashing Ground (if I'm going second, not siding out the 6th card if I'm going first)

Side out 2 Bottomless Trap Hole, 2 Koaki Meiru Drago, 1 Pot of Duality, 1 CardCar D (If I'm going first, I would keep the CardCar)

KuGeL said...

Thx again , also i see you are Bottomless instead of solemn warning, why?

avengingknight said...

Hey Krystal won't return to deck if it was destroyed face down.

GQ said...

@avengingknight : it doesn't?

@KuGeL : preference

Anonymous said...

Would you still prefer this deck over Hanzo Hieratic?

GQ said...

I'm not a big fan of the Hanzo build to begin with. Sure, its good and can really wreck Inzektors turn 1, but its just not me. I prefer playing old fashion traps. The only thing I like bout Hanzo would be BLS. The deck really can use a 3000 beater you can drop from your hand.

Its not a matter of which deck is better, its just that I don't really like Hanzo.
