In case you missed it, this week’s Meta Weekly was the first Weekly with the new Darkness Gimmick BOX. In the finals, we had a match between SimoW’s Resonators and GreedyGoblin’s Shiranui, with GreedyGoblin coming out on top.
How does it feel to win your first Meta Weekly?
In my last Meta Weekly I attended I got Second Place. To win it after that, it feels pretty satisfying.
Why did you go with Shiranui this weekly?
How did the day go for you? Any notable matchups?
Everything went how I expected, I only lost in Swiss because of Jinzo (I drew no out but I prepared for that with Destiny Draw and Hand-traps. The deck is not so linear, and you punish everything that tries to blow you out and then you follow up with Destiny Draw into Needle Ceiling. All in all, the day went very smoothly.
Would you like to explain any of your Deck choices?
You don’t want too many Normal Summons so I just playedt three Samurai Skull and two Gozuki for the most value, because Gozuki is more situational going second, whereas Skull plays through everything. Shiranui Spectralsword and Shiranui Solitaire do nothing on their own and are bad from behind, so I just played the minimum amount necessary to grind. This is because I wanted early pressure and not a slow early game, because you win late-game anyway against everything else. Photon Strike Bounzer disappeared, so you can add Samurai Skull from Destiny Draw to summon it, bait Doomcaliber Knight and get Gozuki. Hey, Trunade! disappeared, and every deck has problems with Floodgate Trap Hole and it’s only really bad against establised fields. Every card works on its own, you constantly keep pressure high the whole game.
Do you have anything else you’d like to say about your Tournament Experience?
Thanks to Dkayed everybody who made the day run smoothly and to all people who supported me in the chat.
Lastly, do you have any shout-outs you’d like to make?
Shout-outs to my clan Chronos Numbers. I lost to Negative1 in Clan Wars Off Season where I should’ve won, but my clan told me I was still the best, so I appreciate all their support, it was such a blessing. Also huge shoutouts to Yusaku my brother in crime and Sayfeddine his full heart.
