December 3, 2021 – Brothers of Legend
Tyree Tinsley placed 6th at Tables & Towers BROL Case Tournament with a 5-1-1 record.
For this event, Tyree played the popular Tenyi variant of Swordsoul with Cyber Slash Harpie Lady and Harpie’s Feather Storm. Since Swordsoul can easily summon Level 8 Synchros, Tyree uses Cyber Slash to fulfill the activation condition of Feather Storm. Feather Storm is a powerful trap that can turn off the effects of your opponent’s monsters for a turn. This makes it very strong going 1st as it provides a form of counter-play against board breaking cards such as Dark Ruler No More and Forbidden Droplet. This ensures that even if you’re hit by one of these, it’ll still be difficult for your opponent to develop. Furthermore, Cyber Slash is also a decent Synchro by itself. Not only does it bounce one of your opponent’s monsters when a Spell/Trap or effect is activated, it’s also a Harpie in name which enables Feather Storm to activate from the hand.
Robert Phinazee finished 1st place at Da Planet’s Remote Duel Regionals with a 4-0-1 record.
For this event, Robert played Lyrilusc Tri-Brigade featuring a new card from BROL; Wing Requital. Wing Requital is a new draw card that supports Winged-Beasts archetypes. Its activation condition requires you to control 2+ Winged-Beasts monsters. This is useful to dig for hand traps, disruptive cards, utility cards and even Side Deck cards. For example, when going 1st, Requital can dig for hand traps like Droll & Lock Bird, disruption such as Forbidden Droplet, or utility cards like Crossout Designator and Dark Ruler No More. If you’re going 2nd, Requital can dig for an abundance of Side Deck cards like Lava Golem, Lightning Storm, Red Reboot, and even Dark Simorgh. This means if you’re able to resolve Requital, you should be able to gain a solid grasp on that game.
Robert also chose to play 1 copy of Dark Simorgh in his Side Deck. Simorgh is an older card that prevents the opponent from setting cards. This makes it very powerful against backrow decks and control decks that rely on their traps.. Furthermore, since Simorgh is a Winged-Beast, it can be summoned through the effect of Simorgh, Bird of Sovereignty.
Destiny HERO – Destroyer Phoenix Enforcer continues to be very popular and has even gained more representation in the past week.
Many of the decks that have been doing well in the previous weeks continue to do so after the release of Brothers of Legend. While Swordsoul is still the most represented deck, Lyrilusc Tri-Brigade is a close 2nd with many other decks also in the meta. With the December Remote Duel YCS coming up soon, it’ll be interesting to see how players plan on dealing with DPE and which decks prevail.
