It's over, and the conclusion to a rather modest YCS event is now in the history books! Congratulations to your winner Jorge Campos who played Bubble Beat, defeating Paul Cooper and his Hieratic deck in the finals!

This event marks the first of this format that Mermails have been unsuccessful in winning the gold, which I'm sure many people are happy about (though I really don't know why). Any shifts in the meta this event may have caused (or will cause) will likely pale in comparison to the impact of the upcoming releases of Hidden Arsenal 7 and Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy (in another 500 years or so). But either way it was still quite interesting, if only due to Paul Cooper placing so highly with Hieratics. The deck seems to be picking up steam lately, but a high showing and then fading back into obscurity is too normal for this archetype. Meanwhile Bubble Beat as the victor will no doubt see it adding more players to its train in the wake of this tournament. Get ready for both, because getting OTK'd is annoying.

As for the coverage, Konami's Latin America team does not post much as usual. Thus, all I have to report are tidbits from Altereality Games:

Top 16: (yes, there was only a Top 16)

Obviously there are only 13 players listed, so from what we know at this moment, this is the breakdown:

5 Mermail
1 Fire Fist
1 Dino Fist
1 Hero Fist (so much fisting going on, huh?)
1 Bubble Beat
1 Inzektor
1 Geargia Karakuri
1 Six Samurai
1 Hieratic

Top 8:

4 Mermail
1 Fire Fist
1 Hero Fist
1 Bubble Beat
1 Hieratic

Top 4:
