Welcome to Day 2 of YOT Hong Kong 2017.

For our very first Round of 64 match, we have Loo Wei Xuan [Demise True Draco] playing against Zhang Jianheng [True King Dinosaur].


Duel 1

Wei Xuan opened with Dinomite Knuckle, the True Dracofighter by tributing a set Apocalypse of the True Dracos. He followed with setting a Spell/Trap card and then played Card of Demise, but it was negated by Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring.

Dinomite Knuckle’s effect triggered and activated Revival of the True King on the field and that was the turn.

Jianheng simply set a Spell/Trap card for his turn.

Wei Xuan direct attacked with Dinomite Knuckle and backed it with another set Spell/Trap card.

Jianheng played a Fossil Dig for Souleating Oviraptor, and then followed with Terraforming. Dinomite Knuckle triggered and activated an Apocalypse of the True Dracos for the Wei Xuan.

Terraforming fetched Dragonic Diagram. Oviraptor was Normal Summoned, adding Babycerasaurus from the deck to hand. Dragonic Diagram was played and activated, destroying Babycerasaurus from hand, to add True King Lithosagym, the Disaster.

Babycerasaurus tried to activate its Trigger Effect, but Wei Xuan had a Vanity’s Emptiness, which was quickly removed by Cosmic Cyclone. Babycerasaurus brought out another Babycerasaurus.

Oviraptor activated its effect, targeting Babycerasaurus. Wei Xuan responded with Apocalypse’s effect to perform a Tribute Summon of a True Draco, and Wei Xuan returned with Miscellaneousaurus‘ effect from hand, but Wei Xuan chained with a The Monarchs Stormforth. Stormforth tributed Babycerasaurus to Tribute Summon another Dinomite Knuckle, causing Oviraptor to lose its target.

Jianheng continued with banishing Miscellaneousaurus and Babycerasaurus to special summon Petiteranodon, prompting a trigger from the second Dinomite Knuckle. Dinomite Knuckle brought out a second Revival.

True King Lithosagym, the Disaster was special summoned by destroying Petiteranodon from the field and Maxx “C” from hand. Lithosagym tried to banish monsters from the opponent’s Extra Deck and Wei Xuan explained that he was playing with 0 Extra Deck cards.

Petiteranodon‘s Trigger Effect special summoned Miscellaneousaurus. Miscellaneousaurus and Oviraptor were used to Xyz Summon Evilswarm Exciton Knight. Evilswarm Exciton Knight‘s effect was activated on summon, and Wei Xuan chained with the effect of Apocalypse.

Evilswarm Exciton Knight destroyed everything else on the field, while itself was later destroyed by the True Draco Continuous Trap’s trigger.

Wei Xuan drew a card and passed.

Jianheng activated Miscellaneousaurus‘s graveyard effect and banished 4 dinosaurs to special summon Oviraptor. Oviraptor searched for Tyranno Infinity.

Lithosagym was special summoned by destroying Oviraptor and Maxx “C”, and Tyranno Infinity was Normal Summoned.

It was lethal on board and Wei Xuan scooped up his cards.

Duel 2

Wei Xuan opened rather well this game. Pot of Duality got him an Imperial Order, and he managed to dig a couple more cards deeper into his deck with Dragonic Diagram and Card of Demise.

His board ended with a Dinomite Knuckle and 4 set cards in his backrow.

Jianheng opened with Terraforming and as expected, it was met with Imperial Order, but he had a Cosmic Cyclone for it. Dinomite Knuckle triggered and got Wei Xuan a Revival of the True King.

Terraforming fetched Dragonic Diagram, and it was played and activated right after. Dragonic Diagram destroyed Petiteranodon to fetch for True King Lithosagym, the Disaster. Petiteranodon‘s Trigger Effect special summoned Souleating Oviraptor.

When Oviraptor tried to activate its effect, it was met with a Skill Drain. Jianheng responded with a Miscellaneousaurus from hand and Wei Xuan flipped over another Skill Drain.

That was a peculiar sequence of Chains, likely caused by unfamiliarity with Miscellaneousaurus. Miscellaneousaurus only makes Dinosaur monsters unaffected by the opponent’s activated effects. Since Skill Drain is a continuous effect, Dinosaur monsters will remain negated by Skill Drain despite Miscellaneousaurus‘s first effect. The Chain was still resolved correctly though as Oviraptor’s effect was negated.

Miscellaneousaurus banished itself and Petiteranodon from the graveyard to special summon Babycerasaurus. Lithosagym was special summoned by destroying 2 Babycerasaurus, 1 each from hand and field. Both Babycerasaurus triggered and special summoned Babycerasaurus and Miscellaneousaurus from the deck. Ultimate Conductor Tyranno was then special summoned to the field.

Miscellaneousaurus and Oviraptor were used to Xyz Summon Evilswarm Exciton Knight. Exciton’s effect was activated on summon, and chained with Ultimate Conductor Tyranno. Ultimate Conductor Tyranno destroyed Exciton, and Exciton’s effect resolves while in the graveyard, destroying everything on the field.

(Ultimate Conductor Tyranno should have remained negated by Skill Drain, and thus would not destroy Exciton on resolution. This was a Game Play Error that was not caught by both players resulting in a failure to maintain Game State.)

Babycerasaurus‘s Trigger Effect special summoned Tyranno Infinity. And it was back to Wei Xuan’s turn.

Wei Xuan draw a card, looked through his opponent’s graveyard to see a Miscellaneousaurus in it, and concede the game.
