Galo Orbea Top 16 – 150th YCS

On May 29, 2015 by Peter Gross


Hello everyone, Galo Orbea here!
I was finally able to get my tenth premier top this past weekend at YCS Columbus. It was a great experience, being able to enjoy the great company of friends and finally accomplishing my goal of double digit tops, each with a different deck.
Let’s get into the decklist:


Monsters: 26
2 Max “C”
3 Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands
3 Senju of the Thousand Hands
3 Nekroz of Unicore
3 Nekroz of Valkyrus
2 Nekroz of Brionac
2 Nekroz of Clausulas
2 Nekroz of Trishula
2 Shurit, Strategist of the Nekroz
1 Effect Veiler
1 Denko Sekka
1 Djinn, Releaser of the Rituals
1 Cameraclops “The Ugly Warrior” – Soner Güngör

Spells: 15
3 Reinforcement of the Army
2 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 Nekroz Mirror
2 Nekroz Cycle
2 Nekroz Kaleidoscope
1 Preparation of Rites
1 Book of Eclipse
1 Raigeki
1 Dark Hole

Side Deck:
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Zefrasaber, Swordmaster of the Nekroz
2 Denko Sekka
2 Royal Decree
3 Breakthrough Skill
1 Nekroz of Gungnir
1 Vanity’s Emptiness
0 Sectarian of Secrets keeps Galo’s last picks secret for his WCQ.

Extra Deck:
1 Diamond Dire Wolf
1 Gagaga Cowboy
1 Cairngorgon, Antiluminescent Knight
1 Number 80: Rhapsody in Berserk
1 Abyss Dweller
1 Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer
1 Evilswarm Exciton Knight
2 Daigusto Emeral
1 Lavalval Chain
1 Satellarknight Ptolemaios
1 Stellarknight Constellar Diamond
1 Shooting Quasar Dragon
2 Herald of the Arc Light

I was quite satisfied with the list, I may have taken a bit of a risk with the side against the mirror match, but as you will see it paid off in the end. It was a good build for the meta I walked into last weekend. The only changes I’m considering are maining Gungnir and depending on what I expect, choose between Bull Blader and Camaraclops. I might also put in an Artifact Lancea in my side.

Tournament Report:
Round 1: Shaddoll XOO
Game 1: He top decked El Shaddoll Fusion for game off Shaddoll Beast.
Game 2: He got over my Stellarknight Constellar Diamond with Divine Dragon Felgrand, but Valkyrus got over it a turn later.
Game 3: I got Trish to resolve twice.

Round 2: Anti-Meta feat. Star Seraph OO
Round 3: Ritual Beast OO

Round 4: Ritual Beast OO (Both Ritual Beast each bricked one game)

Round 5: Satellarknight OO

Round 6: Qliphort (Roy St. Clair) XOO
Game 1: First turn Towers, no out, got some information with MST.
Game 2: Camaraclops comes in clutch to get rid of Spell Canceller.
Game 3: He opens Spell Canceller, I search Zefrasaber, recycle Brio, set Decree, next turn I shut him down with Denko + Decree, summon Gungnir, attack the Canceller and Trish him MP2. He draws Scout and I reveal my Nekroz card for game

Round 7: Qliphort XX
Game 1: First turn Towers.
Game 2: I can’t deal with Lose 1 Turn plus double Fiendish Chain.

Round 8: Burning Abyss XX
Game 1/2: I get controlled by his traps due to my low resources.

Round 9: Qliphort XOO
Game 1: First turn Towers. Yeah, I know, this was getting out of hand.
Game 2: He flips a Soul Transition that gives him a card in hand, so I Trish him.
Game 3: He makes me go first and I open Cairngorgon with set Decree and Kaleidomirror. He opens Helix and five backrow, he saw the Decree coming. Then he scooped when he saw Denko Sekka plus Kaleido/Unicore.

Round 10: Qliphort XOO
Game 1: He didn’t open Towers, but I still lost.
Game 2: I forget this game but I won pretty quickly.
Game 3: He activates Torrential Tribute on my normal summon, clearing his board except his Qliphort Stealth on pendulum scale and doesn’t search for his Saqlifice since he knows I could Trish him then. I still summon Trish anyway to get damage going, putting him down to 3400. He draws Pot of Duality, completing his pendulum scale. Then I drew Denko Sekka for game!

Round 11: Nekroz (Elvis Vu) XOO
It really hated having to play a good friend in the bubble, at least it meant that one of us would top, sorry to stopping your streak Elvis, but someone had to. ;)
Game1: He is able to manage his resources better and a Mind Crush gave him the edge.
Game 2: We agree to side out Vanity’s Emptiness, he goes first makes Lavalval Chain and completely forgets that he sided out Djinn. So he just stacks a Manju on top of his deck, sets a backrow and passes. I summon Senju, he chains Shared Ride, I search Clausolas, search Cycle and Djinn lock him. This and the next game, I won with my Side Deck cards, Bo Tang doesn’t want me to show you.

With a 9-2 record, I finished 27th place after Swiss.

Top 32: Burning Abyss OO
*Livestream Feature Match*
Game 1: I trick him into thinking I didn’t have the second Trish.
Game 2: I draw Senju to Dweller him, summon Brio and Valk for game.

Top 16: Ritual Beast XX
Game 1: Chaos Trap Hole, Effect Veiler, Mind Crush and Ritual Beast’s Bond crush my dreams.
Game 2: I brick pretty hard with: 2 Unicore, Valk, Decree, MST, Cycle. He wins in a couple turns.

All in all, it was a great event, special thanks to everyone who made it possible, everyone who supported me and let me borrow cards, you know who you are. Hope to be able to get further at the WCQ I choose to attend. Until then, take care everyone!
