So we are saying, “hello again! But you have to go” to the YCS Miama winning deck. That deck just so happens to be wind-ups! I guess it had to give it one big push before it goes to the grave with the new banned list.
Congrats to 1st time YCS winner, Travis Smith, for his dominating a field of over 800+ people with his agressive and dominating deck. He had an epic battle in the finals against Wind-Up. Being able to make it to the finals in a format that had so many Mermail and Wind-Up decks in the top 32 shows that Travis is a very talented and skilled player.
I was really surprised to see this deck make it all the way to the finals, especially with the new Fire Fist deck running Deck Devastation Virus. Some even main decked it too. But some how Travis was able to by pass it. I’m sure it was due to his trap line up.
You see he ran 3 copies of Compulsory Evacuation Device and 3 copies of Fiendish Chain. With so many ways to make sure his opponets monsters effects would not go off, he did not really have to worry about them. Thus the reason why he did not run any main deck hand traps, Effect Veiler or Maxx “C”.
Other than those tweaks to his deck, he ran the standard monsters, traps and spells. I’m sure he was able to pull off the Wind-Up Magician and Wind-Up Shark combo often. I’m sure am hoping we will no longer see that combe ever again!!
