WCQ: South America 2016 – Galo Orbea – Top 16 Tournament Report

On June 25, 2016 by Michael Dämmig

Hello UG nation!
I’m here with a quick Tournament Report from WCQ – South America this past weekend. I didn’t really do much playtesting due to other things getting in the way, but I was able to get a lot of theory going with my friend, Javier Amores, along with the United Gosus members. I’ll go ahead and get right into it:

I started the build off the UK Nationals winner, Jared Stone, and from there I made some of my own choices. Adding the Red Layers, Maxx “C”s, Foolish Burial and third Prime; dropping Domains, a Twin Twisters and other Monarch cards. I just wanted a main deck that could go second if I had to, but could go first if I won the die roll. Besides that, the deck is self-explanatory, except for the Drowning Mirror Forces that almost always went in, I just feel it’s the best deck to side the card in since everyone just plays around Stormforth and Prime. As a side note, I didn’t like Chaos Trap Hole, I was wishing it was a Raigeki since I was going into time too often.


I got 32nd place after 9 rounds and there was still a long way to go to get my invite to Worlds.

Sadly, the dream ended there, maybe I’ll make it to Worlds next year. Besides that, I would like to thank everyone for making my weekend awesome! Special thanks to United Gosus, Javier Amores and everyone else, you know who you are. I’ll see everyone at YCS Toronto and hopefully YCS Rio de Janeiro. Take care til then, duelists!
