Tournament on Battlefy (bracket)


  1. RaiZo, Egypt - 5 000 gold
  2. Donpork, Korea - 2500 gold
  3. S_t_0, Japan - 1000 gold

Featured Decks

This RaiZo's deck had faced Y Rush 8 times in the tournament and lost only once! Y Rush is considered an unfavorable matchup for Y Tempo, but not when RaiZo "Rush Killer" is piloting it.

Is it still Y Flyers if there are no Drakkar Skycaptains? Is it still Y Control if there are no Wind Soldiers? Interesting deck featuring forgotten Soul Pacts and universal Emperors Commands instead. Undefeated in round 2.

S_t_0 put 2 Oradrim Fanatics and cut Scourgeflame Specter from conventional RY Burn. He switched his opening deck to this extra-mobile deck in the 3rd place match and had not regretted it.

A Deck based on 2 rarely seen Oversky cards - Path to Paradise and Rakoan Chieftain. Skc, an established Faeria player, was caught by surprise in round 1 as he was steamrolled by BoBBiN's invention.
