13 people showed up. Half were from outta state.
Round 1 verses Devon with lightning/void:
Annoying to play due to suigetsu/human path combo.
Early on in game 1 I payed certain cards as a hand cost not realizing what I was playing. The combo sniped the most important cards. I lost soon after.
Game 2-3 I burnt through the games and rose victorious. Not much to say.
Round 2 verses Lewis G.(Lewis Uchiha) w/water. Can't remember details won 2-1. Excellent player. The last game went short of time.
Game 3 versus Patrick K. (Shido) w/lightning /
fire. mental power kept on slowing him down. Well timed moves including mind transfers helped me win 2-1. The game I lost ino(change) milled out everything I needed most.
Round 4 verses Louis R.(soundwave) w/wind fire ji.
Game 1. I opened shiho and missed drop 1. By turn 3 he dropped two ji's and it was gg
Game two I got ji'd via sasori. He flashpointed and next turn I mind transferred his hiroku of which I flashpointed. For him the game very slowly went downhill. Game three he drew horribly and consistency was an issue. I crushed him for the victory.
I take top seed into top 8.
Round 5 verses Adam? He challenged every move I did basically unsuccessfully. Alliance remember is that the judge spent as much time at the table as away. I can't remember his deck but I exited victorious.
Top 4/round 6. Versus Cory with fire/water ji.
He ji'd an[dire situation] itachi
I won that game and the next.
Top 2 versus Patrick again. These games dragged out longer(or so it seemed). Details are fuzzy since I've been awake for near 30 hours by now. But I won game one. He had game 2. game three (saitsu) this was the only game ino(ch) made an major impact. I sided into revitalize. (Also did that versus Louis R. Though it didn't matter.). I ended up victorious. Everytime he killed off yamato I played another. XD.
Deck list to come later.
Hearing Lewis say I should've split round 2 to help him top, on the way home.
Generations for ps3 since I own Xbox 360. Oh well, I'll trade it into to get UNS3.
no fog this time
Inadvertently eating most if Patrick's slimjims. Seriously brings a ten pack as snacking for a 7hour round trip for 4 (even if there was other stuff). I'm thankfully though.
3out of 4 buffalonians top 4'ing.
