It’s the Top 8 now and we really close to crowning our Singapore Champion.
At this table we have Sun Xi Yun [Performapal] against Ong Wei Sheng [Burning Abyss].
Wei Sheng went first and opened with Tour Guide From the Underworld, resulting in Djinn Releaser of Rituals being sent to the graveyard.
He continued with Pre-Preparation of Rites for Good & Evil in the Burning Abyss and Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss.
Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss came down with Djinn Releaser of Rituals used as one of the material, creating a Burning Abyss Djinn lock.
Beatrice, the Eternal Lady came down and that’s all for Wei Sheng’s turn.
Xi Yun tested with Guiding Ariadne, Luster Pendulum, the Dracoslayer and Wavering Eyes combo, before going for Archfiend Eccentrick, in an attempt to break out of the Djinn lock.
However it was thwarted by a Farfa through Beatrice.
In his end phase, both Xi Yun’s Solemn Strike were destroyed by Wei Sheng’s Twin Twisters.
Wei Sheng then went all-in on his own turn.
Sun Xi Yun 0 – 1 Ong Wei Sheng
Xi Yun opened with just a set card, but it was taken out by Wei Sheng’s Twin Twister.
Wei Sheng confidently special summoned a couple of Burning Abyss monsters, despite a Maxx “C” from Xi Yun, which was followed by a Flying “C”.
In a last-ditch effort to salvage his board, Wei Sheng played Mask Change II, to bring out Masked HERO Dark Law.
Dark Law went in for an attack before the turn was over.
Xi Yun drew and only set a card, allowing Wei Sheng to go in for another round of direct attacks, this time with Flying “C”.
Xi Yun finally brought out Number 39: Utopia which took out Dark Law.
The next couple of turns were simply drawing and passing between the two players as Xi Yun was unwilling to break out Wei Sheng of the Flying “C” soft-lock.
Xi Yun finally attack in when he could bring out a Number 106: Giant Hand as another form of lock-down.
Wei Sheng baited with a Tour Guide From the Underworld, which successfully got Xi Yun to activate his Giant Hand, and in turn saw Mask Change II turning Tour Guide into Masked HERO Anki.
Fiendish Rhino Warrior was special summoned, and Utopia was banished by the discarded Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss.
Anki took out Giant Hand, and Rhino Warrior went in for a direct attack.
Utopia returned and Xi Yun promptly transformed him into Number S39: Utopia the Lightning.
Utopia the Lightning took out Rhino Warrior, and the turn was passed to Wei Sheng.
Wei Sheng drew into Harpie’s Feather Duster, taking out Xi Yun’s only trap.
Anki went in for a direct attack, taking the game and the match.
Sun Xi Yun 0 – 2 Ong Wei Sheng
Wei Sheng won the match and earn himself a spot in the Top 4 of the Singapore Qualifier!
