Last weekend, Konami and the tournament organizers at Shadow Realm Games defied expectations & surpassed limitations! They hosted the December Remote Duel Extravaganza event with more ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! tournaments, more Win-A-Mats, more Structure Deck Sealed events, and another Sunday Main Event! But this time the Sunday tournament had way more players. 282 of them, breaking the initial player cap of 256 competitors!

With last month's November Extravaganza hosting just over 190 players, who knew that this series was going to gain so much momentum? Who knew that it was even possible to host a remote event with so many players? With all the competitors having to record each and every single one of their matches, and the chat constantly spammed by an endless barrage of questions, this definitely wasn't an easy event to manage.

And it was certainly was longer than expected! The Sunday Main Event started as scheduled at 10:00am PST, or 1:00pm my time. But with the additional competitors, the event challenged duelists to last for a whopping NINE rounds. It certainly took a lot of willpower and endurance, with each round running 50 minutes and often requiring another hour or so to track down and record match results. In total, the event lasted until roughly 3:00am EST.

The Biggest Winners Of The Weekend

Let's talk about the biggest winners of the event, and the decks that got them there.

Cameron Neal won the Saturday ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! tournament with Drytrons, and then went on to take a Top 16 finish in the Sunday Main Event as well! Meanwhile Jesse Kotton won the Sunday Main Event, going undefeated piloting his Drytron variant. At the same time, Nicholas Barnes was undefeated in the Sunday ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! with Virtual Worlds.

So surprisingly enough, even though Eldlich and Zoodiac were very popular, neither could win any of the weekend's big tournaments. Maybe combo decks like Drytrons and Virtual Worlds are still the biggest decks-to-beat.

Here are their lists, starting with Jesse Kotton's 1st Place build from the Main Event.

Kotton and Neal's lists are almost identical, with just a handful of card choices differentiating them from each other.

For starters, the Main Decks looks almost the same. Kotton chose to play Herald of Purple Light for a searchable negation that could stop traps, while Cameron chose to play Cyber Petit Angel. That got him another search effect off his Normal Summon, and both cards are searchable with Cyber Angel Benten or Eva.

Some other differences: Kotton chose to play the unpopular Drytron Beta Rastaban, as well as the boss monster Drytron Meteonis Draconids. I'd guess that he ran Drytron Beta Rastaban just as another additional name in case he needed the extra Special Summon. Drytron Meteonis Draconids is just a great boss monster when you want to be aggressive, or setting up for disruption.

Besides the Terraforming and second Drytron Gamma Eltanin, the last difference is that Cameron played Herald of Ultimateness. It's almost the same as Herald of Perfection except that it's got slightly bigger stats, and can negate summons as well as spells and traps. He doesn't play Pre-Preparation of Rites with Oracle of the Herald because it's not necessary; you can easily Ritual Summon it by using the searchable Meteonis Drytron tributing any one Drytron minion.

Despite those differences the goal is still the same for both decks: setting up Vanity's Ruler or comboing out for an aggressive Link climbing push. Cyber Angel Natasha really helpful at stealing multiple opposing monsters to Link climb or attack with, and Savvy opponents will try to stop the deck from setting up with it.

There was more variation in the Extra and Side Decks, so let's cover a few of the standouts.

It looks like Kotton still respects Dogmatika Maximus. He dedicated a few slots to take advantage of Dogmatika Maximus, and if his opponent activated it he could send Elder Entity N'tss and Cyber Dragon Nova to the graveyard. If Elder Entity N'tss is sent to the graveyard it destroys an opponent's card, and sending Cyber Dragon Nova lets you Special Summon a Machine Fusion from your Extra Deck - in Kotton's case a free Invoked Mechaba. We've seen that package used before, starting in Sam's winning Dinosaur list from the first Remote Duel Invitational.

That package is good because an Invoked Dogmatika player opens with a way to summon Dogmatika Maximus and their own Invoked Mechaba so consistently. From there they use Dogmatika Maximus effect to send El Shaddoll Apkallone to the Graveyard to search out Shaddoll Schism, setting up El Shaddoll Winda on the opponent's turn.

In that scenario, the package that Jesse plays lets him send both Elder Entity N'tss and Cyber Dragon Nova to the graveyard, allowing him to activate both effects in the same chain so that the opposing Invoked Mechaba can't negate one of them. Having a 2500 ATK Invoked Mechaba would also help you deal with the 2200 ATK El Shaddoll Winda, so it's pretty good.


Kikinagashi Fucho is actually a pretty underrated card for Drytrons. It's just an invincible wall. It's unaffected by cards, it can't die by battle for a turn, and your opponent can't pierce it for damage. The only answer to it is a Kaiju. Why would a Drytron duelist play it? Well, its purpose is to buy you a turn, especially when your opponent resolves a Droll & Lock Bird on you, or finds some other way to stall your turn.

I'm sure that moving forward, some might even consider maining Droll & Lock Bird if more and more players pick up Drytrons now, since it's shown so much success in such a short period of time.

Barnes' Side Deck looks well prepared for trap-heavy decks, as well as Drytrons. The only thing that stands out to me is the choice to play only two copies of Virtual World Hime - Nyannyan and Virtual World Gate - Chuche. Barnes remarked post-event that he thought more copies weren't needed, and he preferred to avoid drawing multiples of each in his opening hand, so it's understandable that he wanted to play only two. Clearly it worked out for him.

I asked him how often Chaofeng, Phantom of the Yang Zing came up and he said he only used it once in the six round event. At the same time, it's necessary to play it for those situations where you only open up with double Virtual World Xiezhi - Jiji.

Clearly Virtual Worlds are still a top contender, with consistency and a huge ability to turbo out True King of All Calamities. Congratulations to Barnes for winning the Sunday Giant Card event!

Heading Into The Weekend

I had plans to compete in the Main Event and to try and do better than last time. That's what I told myself. But unfortunately I didn't do as well as I hoped. I ended up 24th place after 9 Rounds, a very similar record to what I scored in last month's Extravaganza.

My mindset for this event was that I wanted to play a deck that would let me play against True King of All Calamities or Vanity's Ruler, in the Virtual World and Drytron matchups respectively. That meant trap cards like Torrential Tribute, Needle Ceiling, Storming Mirror Force and Crackdown were really good. With that theory being popular, I also didn't want to play an engine that would lose to those trap cards etiher. Eldlich was one of the available options I had, and it was a good change of pace compared to the Dinosaur deck I usually play.

Most Eldlich decks these days mixes them with Zoodiacs or Live☆Twins, but I chose not to play those engines and ran more trap cards instead; I wanted to draw my opening hand and just consistently set four or five cards. I thought that even though Zoodiac and Live☆Twin cards were good, they lose to trap cards or become vanilla monsters when they're staring down Vanity's Ruler or True King of All Calamities backed up by Virtual World Gate - Chuche.

Running more traps means I can play past True King of All Calamities and Vanity's Ruler, but what I've learned is that I can't consistently get rid of Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon. Live☆Twins can play through most traps but can't beat Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, while Zoodiacs lose to every removal trap but can help defeat Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon by making Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS - Sky Thunder with four materials.

So there were definitely a lot of pros and cons to my build. But I was expecting more players to play Virtual Worlds, since the deck is so much more affordable and successful. I was also very comfortable playing any Eldlich mirror, so I was pretty confident heading into the event.

Here's my list if you want to try it out.

I made some interesting card choices, like the sided Doomking Balerdroch. I've played a Zombie World Eldlich variant in the past, and I've learned that Doomking Balerdroch really powerful in the Eldlich mirror. While it's on the field, your opponent basically can't use their Eldlich the Golden Lord effect. You can negate its removal and also banish it if your opponent tries to use its ability to revive it. So once you've set up your Eldlich the Golden Lord with Conquistador of the Golden Land, you can use Eldlixir of Scarlet Sanguine to search Doomking Balerdroch for another layer of disruption.

All my friends told me not to play Reasoning, but it's just too funny when you resolve it. You either win because you mill just enough Golden Land traps or Eldlixir cards, or you lose because you mill too many. It's so important to see any Eldlixir or Golden Lands at all, that I thought it was important to at least try and play this card; hitting something like Dinowrestler Pankratops and getting some resources along with it is huge.

I only resolved Reasoning twice in the Extravaganza, and it was good both times I used it. That said, I do side it out a lot, with and without the Dinowrestler Pankratops. That decision depended on the matchup. and whether or not I was keeping in Eldlixir of Black Awakening, Eldlixir of White Destiny, and Guardian of the Golden Land.

Those three extra names helped out in Eldlich mirrors, not only setting me up faster but also granting me an extra turn or two of resources. The third Eldlich the Golden Lord in the side is also for the mirror, since it's important to see it and you can't have them all get banished by an opposing Huaquero of the Golden Land or Ice Dragon's Prison.

Looking Ahead

The next official event will be the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers held at selected participating OTS locations: those are happening the weekend of January 16th, which is pretty exciting since the top TWO winners from each event will ear invites to the Invitational.

I'll be playing in it! But since I'm in the same region as Jesse Kotton and Ryan Yu, let's just say it'll be very, very tough for me to get into that top 2. You can find more info on that event right here.

After that, there'll be yet again another Remote Duel Extravaganza on the weekend of January 23rd and 24th. If you haven't seen the details yet, you can read all about that one here.

I'd also like to take the time to thank all the wonderful staff for hosting, and for managing another wonderful event, including the judge staff and tournament organizers. Though it was a chaotic weekend, it went well!

I don't know how many players will be in the next Extravaganza, but time and time again, we see that Remote Duels are gaining popularity. It's definitely the next way to play Yu-Gi-Oh until lockdown is over.
