I'm still working on this highlight reel, because the official coverage site is down (lol):

So, you'll have to stay tuned for me to get the details from between Round 9 and Top 16 up. However, this may not be much of a concern for many of you. Since this YCS supposedly ended with a Wind-Up mirror match, nobody really gives a shit about the event anymore. Either way, congrats to Travis Smith, and good riddance to his fucking deck! :) As expected, the big three decks (Wind-Ups, Mermails, and Dino Rabbit) each did not disappoint, taking up a combined 25 of the Top 32 spots. However, the brand new Fire Fist deck underperformed, with only one making the top cut.

You all laughed at me when I said I wanted to limit the Karakuri Synchros, but then somebody Top 4'd with a deck that exploits them. HA. Also, congrats to Pat Hoban for going undefeated for I think the first nine rounds or so and ending Swiss 10-1. Subscribe to this blog if you like my content, guys.
