YCS Pasadena: And the Winners Are...

YCS Pasadena: And the Winners Are…

Two intense days of Dueling have come to an end and there is a new YCS Champion!

This weekend’s YCS Pasadena tournament was huge, with over 1500 Duelists competing. Mystic Fighters was just released a few days ago and was legal for competition, and Chaos Impact continued to affect the way Duelists built Decks and competed.

Kobe Short took the tournament with his Sky Striker Orcust Deck!

The previous Advanced Format boiled down to a raging battle between Sky Striker and Orcust Decks at the highest level of competitive Dueling. With both Decks slightly weakened by the October 14th Forbidden & Limited List, many Duelists combined their forces for this weekend’s YCS event. Short achieved the most success with it.

Here are the winners for the rest of the various events at this weekend’s YSC event.
