Say hello to the new dominating deck in the format. As with past YCS’s there is a new deck winning, Legendary Six Samurai. It was such a dominating deck in this tournament that it took not just the top spot but also 2 of the other top 4 spots.
Congrats to 1st time YCS winner, Nizar Sarhan, for his dominating a field of over 800 people with his six samurai deck. He had an epic battle in the finals against last YCS championship deck, gravekeeper’s. With the latest Storm of Ragnarok six samurai’s, Legendary Six Samurai – Kageki, Kagemusha of the Six Samurai, Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan, Shien’s Smoke Signal, Musakani Magatama, and Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En, he was able to do thinks six samurai players have been wanting to do for years.
Nazar’s deck list has many interactive cards that once played got him many +1′s and sometime +2′s and +3s. Getting so many pluses and playing many defensive cards to protect the card advantage, you can see why this deck was the top deck. It was able to summon many overpowering monsters on his side of the field for many of the top played and expected decks , gravekeeper’s, plant synchron, x-saber and blackwings, to handle.
We all know the main card to any six samurai deck is Gateway of the Six. Its importants to the deck is unbelieveable. With so many special summon creatures this card just gets bushudo counters real easy. But the true power is its ablility to get you any of the other monsters from your deck to your hand that you can then summon for FREE! Remove 4 bushudo counters and go get a Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan or Grandmaster of the Six Samurai. Then special summon it and have a 2100 attack power monster PLUS put bushudo counters on this card again. Now that is amazing power.
Add in the already powerful drawing engine of Six Samurai United. You should already know why this card is just amazing. This card allowed Nazar to draw more cards and another outlet to put and remove bushudo counter for Gateway of the Six. With the dynamic duo of searching and drawing, these 2 cards got him a card he could use right now. As we all know getting the right card at the right time is always getting us closer to a win.
Most of his trap cards are defensive traps. Meaning, I don’t want you to be able to do certain things. Want to summon a creature? Nope I have Solemn Warning and Solemn Judgment to stop that. Oh man you all ready have a creature on the field and you are attacking, I got Mirror Force. You want to destroy more than one of my cards on the field, I got that covered too with Musakani Magatama or Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En.
With all those FREE turns and powerful trap cards. You can see why this deck won the 3 top spots of YCS Dallas. I’m sure we are all going to see this deck being played at out locals and regionals.
