Courtney Waller 2011 YCS Kansas City KC Winner Tour Guide Chaos Stun Deck Review

Black Luster Soldier-Envoy of the Beginning YuGiOh CardAfter a grueling 2 days of playing, the players at KC have decided who will be the YCS Championship Deck. And the winner and NEW championship deck of the YCS is Chaaaaaaaaaaaaos Stunnnnnnnnnnnn! So we finally have a deck that has taken down the reigning YCS Champion deck, Tour Guide Plant Synchron.

Congrats to 1st time YCS winner, Courtney Waller, for his dominating a field of over 600 people with his innovative and creative deck. He had an epic battle in the finals against Synchro-heavy Deck. That just shows you that Courtney is a very talented and skilled player.

He came up with a stunning control deck using the powers of chaos monsters, Chaos Sorcerer and Black Luster Soldier Envoy of the Beginning, combined with key monsters that allowed him to reuse his power cards over and over and over again. Being able to reuse Battle Fader is one of his key power plays.

Courtney realized the best way to deal with a plant engine is to just banish the monsters of the engine. What better way to do that than playing Chaos Sorcerer, Caius The Shadow Monarch and a teched in Kycoo The Ghost Destroyer and D.D. Warrior Lady.

Now that he was able to banish the plant pieces he also needed a back up plan just in case anything went wrong. His backup plan was using the Tour Guide From the Underworld engine combined with Dimensional Alchemist. You see most of the monsters he would banish with Dimensional Alchemist will be either returned to the field by a Leviair the Sea Dragon or to his hand when alchamist is destroyed. Being able to end the battle phase multiple times is a game changing move.

Courtney ran so many monsters he didn’t have room to play that many spells and traps. In fact he only played with 11 spells and 2 traps. Can you see why his oppenets Heavy Storm and Mystical Space Typhoons were useless. Also he ran this formats contol card, Enemy Controller. Can you see why he had no problem dealing with plants or any synchro heavy deck?

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

i like his side deck and the concept of the chaos control deck. my question is, how come mirror force wasn’t in the side instead of a second vanity’s fiend? its added protection for fossil, kycoo, thunder king. also what is your thoughts on creature swap over enemy controller?


@Darrian – I’m just going to guess he didn’t like mirror force. It’s reactive card, meaning you can only use it as a reaction to what your opponent has.

I like both Creature Swap and Enemy Controller. Depending on what type of deck you are running, creature swap can be a game changer. The same can be said with Enemy Controller. If I’m playing lower attacking monsters that replace themselves, like gadgets, I want creature swap.

What do you think of them?
