Top Duelists competed this weekend for a chance at the UDS Invitational Championship Belt, and after 13 Swiss Rounds and a top 16 cut, David Flores and his Thunder Dragons triumphed. Flores faced many challenges this weekend. The field of Decks that would be used in the tournament was largely unknown beforehand, as the newest Forbidden & Limited List just took effect on July 15th, and hadn’t yet been used in any large Regional Qualifiers or YCS events. In addition, Battles of Legend: Hero’s Revenge just became legal for tournament play on July 12th, ;Rising Rampage became legal for tournament use on July 26th, and Structure Deck: Rokket Revolt was added to the tournament card pool this past Friday. Since none of the cards from any of these products had been legal in a major YCS or Regional Qualifier event prior to this weekend, the addition of the cards from these products to the tournament card pool complicated the tournament even further and made it even tougher to prepare.
