Billy Brake 2011 YCS Toronto Winner Tour Guide Plants Deck Review

Maxx C YuGiOh Card Game So we finally see what deck is going to be “The Deck To Beat” in this new format. I actually thought Agents was going to be the deck. But as you can see from the finals, plants still have the staying power. Even with all the major hits from the September ban list.

FINALLY!!!! We can say Billy Brake is a YCS champion. Congrats to 1st time YCS winner, Billy Brake, for his dominating a field of over 1000 people with his innovative plant deck. He had an epic battle in the finals against one of the new power house deck, Agents.

He was able to control his opponets plays by main decking in hand monster effect monsters, which in turn made his opponets think about what they want to do. One such monster is the one we all are aware about, Effect Veiler. No need to explain the power of this card, you should know why this card is powerful.

The other such card is Maxx C. You see, by playing this card Billy was able to say to his opponent, “Go ahead and do all those special summons. I’m just going to draw a card for each one of them.” He basically dared his opponent to special summon more than 1 monster.

With decks running Tour Guide From the Underworld or The Agent of Creation – Venus, they now had to think if they will continue to special summon into their Xyz monster. Imagine being able to make your opponent think about not summoning their Gachi Gachi Gantetsu. Now that’s power!!!

What is amazing is that he ran the limited plant engine of only 1 Lonefire Blossom, 1 Debris Dragon and 1 Pot of Avarice. Being able to get one of your plant tuners, Glow-Up Bulb or spore, from your deck to the graveyard is key to this deck. This allowed him to special summon it to the field and then use his tool box of an extra deck. Can you say more control?

With Heavy Storm in everyones deck, he only ran 6 trap cards. He instead decided to run 13 spell cards. 2 of which allowed him to control the field, Enemy Controller . Funny how this card has the word contol in it. :)

Check out Billy’s entire deck plus his side and extra deck below his trophy shot.
