In case you missed it, this week's Meta Weekly was thefirst Meta Weekly after the banlist and Skill changes went live in-game. As the first tournament with Onomatoplay live to its current iteration, we had several Onomats in the Top 32, with Buns taking the crown over EndS' Cyber Dragons.

Interview with Buns
How do does it feel to win another Meta Weekly?
This one feels a bit better than the last since after most people thought Onomats weren't coming back with the hits they got so it felt great dominating the first Meta Weekly post-Skill changes and proving those people wrong.
How do you feel about Onomat's place in the meta?
The Skill change definitely had some upsides and downsides. It made your Turn 1 better as you don't always want to have Loading... follow-up, sometimes Loading... or Loading... is better to force backrow. The Turn 2 however got weaker as you need multiple-card combos to OTK certain boards and the new skill is more restrictive, which is a main reason why Loading... and Loading... were cut as the Tag combo is harder to pull off now.
Overall, the deck definitely feels like a Top 3 deck in terms of strength along with Harpies and Fire Kings.
Would you like to explain any of your Deck choices?
So the two Loading... build was more of a pure anti-Harpie deck while Loading... variant is more well-rounded. The reason I ditched the two Trunade variant is they have very bad matchups against decks like Fire King, Thunder Dragons, and others, that even with Side Deck you need to get really lucky to win.
That's why I settled on the Sister build. I felt pretty good about my list and used all of my Side throughout the Tournament so I wouldn't change anything about it
Lastly, Do you have anything else you'd like to say about your Tournament Experience? Any shout-outs you'd like to make?
Tournament went pretty smooth really, I went undefeated in matches through it, And I'd like to make a shoutout my team Abusement Park, my clan De~Fusion and my friends for always being there and supporting me.
