The most recent Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers were held in July. After dominating the competition at Little Big Wars and CoreTCG , the sixteen invited duelists had to wait six long weeks before they'd get their chance to duke it out on livestream at the Remote Duel Invitational, to see who would take the title of King of Games.

In a format that's mostly solved, and Dawn of Majesty not really shaking up competition, most of the qualified competitors stuck with either the deck that earned them their invitation, or a safe choice that was highly consistent, to help bring them to victory. Sixteen duelists were in the hunt on Saturday, but only four of them moved on to the knockout rounds on Sunday.

I managed to collect most of the lists from the participants along with some comments on their expectations for the tournament. Let's take a look at the Top 8 decks from the August 2021 Remote Duel Invitational!

The Newest Champion

Toronto's very own Rehan Saeed, who played in one of the very first Remote Duel Invitationals, finally came roaring back after earning his invite at Little Big Wars' RDI Qualifier. Sticking with the same deck he earned his invite with - Zoodiac Tri-Brigade - Saeed was able to seize the title on Sunday in a decisive 2-0 Finals.

Saeed's powerful build of Zoodiac Tri-Brigade was designed for the mirror match. He anticipated that it would be the most represented deck in the tournament (which it was), but unfortunately he didn't play any mirror matches until he hit the Top 4. During the Swiss rounds, Saeed had to make the most of his Side Deck to get him there, since cards like Effect Veiler and Infinite Impermanence aren't as great against decks like Dragon Link or Virtual World.

Saeed went to Game 3 in every round of the Swiss portion of the competition, since his deck wasn't catered toward the wide variety of decks he encountered. Ultimately though, he managed to win every single game on Sunday, winning both of his single-elimination matches in a 4-0 sweep!

As a member of Duelist Academy, Saeed wanted to give a shoutout to everybody from Duelist Academy for their help and support in both playtesting and building his deck. It just goes to show that some hard work and a good playtesting group really pays off! Congratulations once again to Rehan Saeed!

The Runner-Up

Puerto Rico's Sais Troche went from finishing Day 1 with three wins and a draw, to getting 2nd Place by the end of Day 2. Troche's draw was actually the result of his match with Rehan Saeed, so the fact that they got to have a rematch in the Finals was an amazing opportunity; both players had a chance to see their opponent's decks in action.

Unfortunately, fate had it out for Troche as he bricked both games in the Finals. Even still, his main goal was just to make it to Day 2, and even though he didn't really get a chance to play his deck to its fullest potential in the Finals, he still had a smile on his face. He was happy to be where he was in the last round of the weekend, getting there with Virtual World.

Troche's Virtual World Deck featured some super awesome tech choices that made the BA player in me ecstatic. With a small Speedroid package of Speedroid Terrortop and Speedroid Taketomborg to churn out more Level 3 monsters, and potentially Rank 3 Xyz, these two added to the extra gas that Virtual World's already known for.

One of the most interesting things about Troche's list was the number of hand traps he was running. Troche played two copies each of Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, Droll & Lock Bird, Nibiru, the Primal Being, and Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay. Rather than maxing out on any of them, Troche instead chose to slim down the number of each, in order to widen the range of interactions he had available.

It's an excellent strategy that worked out wonderfully. Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay and Droll & Lock Bird both have their applications against different decks in competition, but they aren't very good against certain strategies. Troche banked on his meta calls and decided that he should at least Main Deck some number of them to help in those rough matchups where he might lose the dice roll.

The other peculiar thing about Troche's list was the absence of Muddy Mudragon, Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon or Invoked Caliga. Instead, Troche played additional Xyz monsters, and even alternate targets for Ultimaya Tzolkin. The biggest monster that stands out on his list is Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend, which we normally only see in Dragon Link decks for its ability to win games in time.

Troche added it in because of the fact that leaving up on the board with Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon typically meant that Ultimaya Tzolkin would survive into his next turn. Why not capitalize on the fact that he can summon an extra monster? Oh, and it just so happens that the extra monster ALSO has 3000 ATK, and has the ability to end the game during the Main Phase? Sounds like a win-win to me.

I wish that Troche's Finals match had been a little more interactive, but it is what it is. Troche still made a hugely strong showing, and I'm fairly certain we'll see his name pop up at the top tables of future events.

The Semi-Finalists

Both of the semi-finalists were playing variants of Zoodiac Tri-Brigade, but both of them played very different Main Decks. Reigning Remote Duel Invitational Champion Samuel Chung fought hard to defend his title through the weekend, losing in Top 4 to Saeed after a run of unfortunate hands.

Chung's list was also tailored for the mirror match, but still prepared for other decks as well. Since he'd just played in the previous Invitational, Chung had the idea fresh in his head of what kinds of decks he expected at this one, and built his list around those predictions. With mained copies of Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay and a wider variety of monster negation, Chung was ready for whatever matchups came his way.

Side Decked Solemn Judgment let him set up powerful boards with the best negation card to back him up, and cards like Nibiru, the Primal Being and [Contact "C" let him safely go second against any deck, including Prank-Kids and the mirror.

Even though we almost had our first two-time Remote Duel Invitational Champion, it seems it wasn't meant to be quite yet. Chung's already earned his invitation to the next RDI Qualifier that will be held in a few weeks, and I'm willing to put money on him making a three-peat appearance at the next Invitational.

Aaron Levy was back again with a super unique Zoodiac Tri-Brigade list for this event. Similar to his list from the CoreTCG RDI Qualifier, Levy chose to run a variety of tech choices in his Main Deck with cards like Peropero Cerperus. Deviating from the "standard" Zoodiac Tri-Brigade list helped him greatly, giving him a better chance at wider matchups where the standard builds might struggle.

Choosing to still run Rescue Cat, Levy was able to summon both Tri-Brigade Kitt and Peropero Cerperus to make Tri-Brigade Ferrijit the Barren Blossom and continue his Link climbing plays. Levy also chose to main deck single copies of both Triple Tactics Talent and Harpie's Feather Duster so he'd have more options as he played through the rounds. Rather than maxing out on cards like Tactics, he opted instead to have more cards that were playable, rather than potentially bricking with multiple copies of once-per-turn effects.

We saw excellent performances from all of the Top 4, so congratulations on the strong finishes! But there are still more duelists to examine and celebrate, so let's start off with those that just barely missed the Day 2 cutoff.

The Rest Of The Top 8

Eugene Bazemore was the only competitor to finish with a 3-1 record and not make it into Day 2. Like many others in the RDI, Bazemore chose to play the same strategy that he qualified with. I may not be the biggest fan of Final Countdown, but I 100% respect the deck choice, and I can respect how well Bazemore did with it.

Bazemore's list hasn't changed much since the RDI Qualifiers, and this build still follows the same basic game plan: limit what your opponent's allowed to play, and punish them for not respecting cards like Mystic Mine.

Samuel Chung's familiar with Bazemore's strategy - they played each other in the Top 4 of the RDI Qualifier - and a Round 1 stumble against the eventual champ was Bazemore's only loss in Day 1. Unfortunately, even though Bazemore won out, a loss in Round 1 hurt his tiebreakers and he ended up placing 5th after Swiss.

Still, it was a solid showing and just further cemented the idea that Bazemore's created the most optimal build for the Final Countdown strategy in Remote Duels. Obviously for in-person play the list might be slightly different. since it would be able to use Goddess Skuld's Oracle; that card isn't legal for play in Remote Duels.

Timothy Merritt stuck with the same strategy as well, implementing a new strategy as extra protection for @Ignisters - Rivalry of Warlords. One of Yu-Gi-Oh's original floodgate cards, Rivalry of Warlords started popping up in lists of mono-type decks left and right since it absolutely destroys decks like Tri-Brigade and Prank-Kids. Since the @Ignister monsters are all Cyberse types, Rivalry doesn't hurt the deck at all.

Rather than play A.I.Contact to help him fix dead hands, Merritt chose to run a full package of Triple Tactics Talent to help him fix hands and potentially punish his opponent for trying to stop his combos. The biggest caveat to the @Ignister deck is the fact that the deck's key combo suffers from several easily exploitable choke points, and if those plays are interrupted it can almost end your turn. With so many hand traps running around the Invitational, it's likely that's what kept Merritt out of Day 2.

Sebastian Todd's no stranger to the livestream. Having just competed in the Top 16 of the Remote Duel YCS earlier this month, he had a good idea of what type of tournament the Invitational would be.

Todd chose to play Dragon Link for the weekend, and similar to Merritt, Todd also ran a full playset of Rivalry of Warlords to oppress different combo-heavy decks that he anticipated he'd play against. While he was ready for Drytron and Prank-Kids, Todd didn't play against any of those decks. In fact, there weren't even any Drytron in the tournament!

Maxing out on Black Metal Dragon was an interesting choice: it's a primary starter monster, effectively a Normal Summoned Striker Dragon that can automatically search out Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon and isn't once per turn. Crazy stuff. If your opponent actually tries to stop Black Metal Dragon with Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, you could activate another one in the same turn.

Finally, Jose Lopez finished in 8th Place with his Zoodiac Tri-Brigade deck, opting for a pretty standard build in line with what we've come to expect. The main difference between what Lopez was playing and the lists that made it into the Top 4, was that Lopez opted not to play any copies of Solemn Strike; he ran copies of Triple Tactics Talent and Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion instead, so he could still interact with his opponent on either player's turn.

There were either other players that participated in the Remote Duel Invitational, piloting a variety of decks from Sky Striker to Dogmatika Invoked Shaddoll. Unfortunately, similar to those that placed in the Top 8, their records weren't good enough to move onto the single elimination portion of the tournament. Most of the players shared their lists with me and you can find them over on the deck page if you want to take a look.

Whether or not you make it to Day 2 to rake in your share of the tournament's richest prizes, playing in the Remote Duel Invitational's an unforgettable experience. Me, I'm going to take another shot at it myself, with the next round of Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers in just a few weeks. Congratulations again to all sixteen duelists for making it to the Invitational, and once again to Rehan Saeed, for winning the event!

Until next time duelists!
