Umut’s Turkish Championship – Top 4

On June 3, 2015 by Umut Serin


Round 1: Mr. Abaci (last years finalist), Stick&Chair Shaddolls
Game 1: he started with his combo, ended up with Ouroboros and 3 sets… However, i drew Maxx “C” ;) It’s a long long game, and I had no recources anymore.
At one point, he had 2 Veiler for my 2 trishula. But I outplayed the 2nd Veiler with my 2nd Trish in hand ;)
Later, I top decked RAIGEKI, then he had a bad draw. I top decked PREPETATION (after that 0 Unicore 0 spell in gave aaaand until that i had 0 Manju/Senju). I tried my last option and summoned Unicore + Valk with Kaleido and attacked for a lot damage. He set a monster and 2 backrows. I drew a Manju (if i remember correctly I had no targets in deck) and attacked, brought him to 600 life points. He discarded Maxx C. He had only 1 card in hand. I risked the 3rd possible Veiler in hand, and made Cowboy for game. (he drew for Maxx C aaaand it was VEILER ;) ) Next turn he destroyed my field with his Call of the Haunted on Construct and killed me with another fusion monster.
It’s such a loooong game 1.

Game 2: deck check #1
I had to start, made Brio for Valk and go. He started with Winda-Beast-Falco combo and 2200 damage and 2 sets (Mistake). But I overcame everything and handled the 2nd game easily in my favour.

Game 3: time out, so 1-1 draw :)

Round 2
If i remember correctly it was Satellar… 2 EASY and FAST games.

Round 3 Yosenju
Game 1: He won dice roll so I had to start… Starting hand was 2 Maxx c + Djinn.suuuuper against Yosenju :) So I set Djinn. He summoned 3 Yosenjus (+1000atk guy) and made some damage, and set some cards.
My turn, in my Standby Phase he activated Macro Cosmos. I summoned Unicore with Kaleido and normal summoned DD Warrior Lady but got Torrential Tribute’d.
Next turn, he Mind Crushed my Valk for game.
Game 2: I won with Decree and 2 MST.
Game 3: he started with Dimensional Fissure and 2 sets. Since I couldn’t Exciton him, so I MST’ed his Fissure and went for Trishula. Buuuut he had BTH and TT. Later he summoned 5x Yosenjus for huge damage in the following turn for game.

I was on the bubble after this round.

Round 4 mirror match
Game 1: I had to start, and I made the Valk play. He repeated, ended turn.
The next run, I drew Maxx C. When i activate Kaleido, he had Maxx C first, and Veiler on my Valk, I had no Eclipse and I couldn’t set cards from my hand. So he Trished me the next turn. But i was lucky with my draw cause i had a last chance for Djinn lock. That won me the game.
Game 2: he OTKed me. I had no Valk..
Game 3: He summoned Manju, searched for Kaleido, and then made the Unicore + Valk but i had TT. Next turn I made 2900 damage with Valkyrus and won the game with my Necrovalley.

Round 5, deck check #2, Baby Shaddolls
Game 1: he won the dice roll, I started with 2 Unicore, Gungnir, 2 MST, so its his turn. I hoped he couldn’t no OTK. His turn, he specialed Construct + Collapse attacked for 4600 damage, he set a monster and 2 spell/traps.
I Excitoned him the following turn (discarded Brio chained eff). And main 2 summoned Valk, eff, draw 2, and then ended my turn. I was lucky enough that he drew bad the following turns and i won with a blue army.
Game 2: he wanted to start, but he bricked and ended his turn without any move.
I OTKed him with the same cards Alpay used to destroy Joshua in game 3 in the german nationals final match :)

Round 6, deeeeck cheeeck #3, game loss for my opponent, Ritual Beasts.
Game 2: no boarding. He had to start, Elder plus Pingu wombo combo, and ended with 3 sets. Draw phase Macro. But I couldn’t handle Macro, Mind Crush + Steeds. So he equaled the score.
Game 3: I let him start. He set 3 and had Dimensional Fissure. I had 2 Space Typhoon, Valkyrus, Shurit,1 Trishula and Nekroz Cycle. i Spaced the Fissure, set Shurit.and Trished him successfully. Next turn it was over for life points.

So I topped :)

I was really afraid after the first 3 rounds but then I was really lucky enough with some draws.

Top 8
If i remember Correctly, it’s Nekroz, and I won both games via OTK

Top 4, ritual beast
Game 1: what can i say… He opened with Elder plus Pingu, then set 3. During my Draw Phase he activated Macro. I should have gone for Trishula play as my 1st move, but I didn’t and so I couldn’t handle the minus i had to do because of Steeds and Ambush in EP and it’s an easy game for him.
Game 2: maybe I should have started but I thought he cannot start again with the nuts, and I boarded a lot. He had the nuts again :(
I had no Ju, no Denko, no MST. I took my time to think, a lot of time, but couldn’t do anything. I tried everything, but it was his day. So it was an easy 2-0 for him :)
Later, he won the final match against Dogay Kamar (who topped last year with his e-dragons at the WCQ in Amsterdam).
