You've just won round two of the finals bracket, with semifinals before you.--------------------------------------------------------------------EPISODE 11You Normal Summon Rescue Cat.Purrrrr!You activate its effectMeow!To special summon 2 Tree Otters. You activate the effects of both Tree Otters to boost one of them up to 3200 attack. You move to combat.Tree Otter attacks Cloudian - Storm DragonLara 1800 --> 0YOU WIN------------------------------------------>G-good game...You return the plesantry and sa goodbye to Lara, moving on to the next round. It starts immiediately, as you two were the final two players.SemifinalsYou're dueling Wisteria.>[Edit Deck]>I'm Fine!
>>1820144>I'm fine!We can go on a deck editing spree with all the sweet rewards and format change after we crush this tourney.
>I'm fine.-----------------------------------------------------------------You are dueling Wisteria.Choose deck and roll 1d2 to begin.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>1820271Zoo.Wisteria is scary, this'll be tough.
>Good to see you again, Gerrard! Don't take it personally, but I intend to beat you one more time today!You go first.TURN 1Gerrard 4000Wisteria 4000You draw 4 hands.Your hand:Tanngrisnir of the Nordic BeastsYellow Baboon, Archer of the ForestTree OtterRush ReclesslyYour plays?
>>1820291Summon Tanngrisnir in face up attack, set Rush Recklessly.
>>1820307Then pass turn I guess.It's good to have you back Playmaker.
You summon Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts in attack mode and set Rush Recklessly.You pass.TURN 2Gerrard 4000Wisteria 4000>Ready or not, here I go! Draw!>I Normal Summon Mother Grizzly! >Battle! Mother Grizzly, attack the stupid goat!Do you want to chain any effects?
>>1820360Boost our Nordic beast up with rush recklessly.
>>1820360I say we just summon baboon
>>1820380We can't pay the cost for baboon, there'd only be one beast in our grave.
>>1820360OH SHIT YOURE BACK I MISSED THIS QUESTLet Tanngrisnr die, summon tokens.
>>1820408I really wanna conserve goat/goat tokens so that we have one to summon Barkion later though. We would be able to tribute summon baboon next turn with those tokens, but we'll summon him eventually anyways.Unless I'm missing something? Do you really want tempo baboon? Or tokens to soak up attacks? Is there something scary I should be worried about her pulling from grizzly effect?
>>1820424>>1820408>>1820380Just reminding you that I'm not going to move forward until two of you agree on an action.
>>1820457I say to boost him. We can move him to defense mode next turn
You activate Rush Recklessly, boosting The Stupid Goat's attack up to 1900.Wisteria 4000 --> 3500>Very well... I use Mother Grizzly's effect to special summon another Mother Grizzly to take her place!>Here's your chance, little Gerrard, don't waste it! I pass!TURN 3Gerrard 4000Wisteria 3500You draw.Your field:1x Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts (attack mode)Your opponent's field:1x Mother Grizzly (attack mode)Your hand:Yellow Baboon, Archer of the ForestTree OtterYour draw:Key MouseYour plays?
>>1820500Lets not let her bait us into overextending before we have a good combo together.Let's just switch goat into defense mode, summon tree otter, have tree otter boost itself, and get some damage in with tree otter.
>>1820542Anybody wanna back me up on this? Or make a good argument for something else?
You switch The Stupid Goat into defence mode and Normal Summon Tree Otter. Tree Otter boosts its attack to 2200 with its effect.Battle phase. Tree Otter attacks Mother Grizzly.Wisteria 3500 --> 2700>I special summon Treeborn Frog!You pass.TURN 4Gerrard 4000Wisteria 2700>Draw!>You've got your chance, but now it's my turn to bring the beatdown! I tribute my Treeborn Frog!>Grace us with your presence, Caius, the Shadow Monarch!>My Caius'es effect! I banish your stupid goat!>Battle! Caius, attack Tree Otter!Gerrard 4000 --> 2800>It's your turn to struggle, Gerrard! I pass!TURN 5Gerrard 2800Wisteria 2700You draw.Your field:-Your opponent's field:1x Caius the Shadow Monarch (attack mode)Your hand:Yellow Baboon, Archer of the ForestKey MouseYour draw:Uniflora, Mystical Beast of the forestYour plays?
>>1820671Damnit. I hate Caius. All we needed was for one token to survive.Summon Uniflora, uniflora effect for baboon, kill Caius with baboon.
>>1820689no can do, unifloras effect says cant attackwhat i think we COULD do however, is uniflora -> tree otter, attack with tree otter, take 1200 dmg, yellow baboon effect, banish tree otter+uniflora, attack with yellow baboon to kill caius and deal 200dmgThats probably a shit turn tho because it uses up too many resources
>>1820709A better turn might be uniflora -> key mouse defenseand next turn when key mouse gets destroyed tutor lock cat and summon baboon by exiling uniflora and tree otter
>>1820709Fine, I'll switch to this.>>1820736We don't have that cat.
>>1820772>>1820709ive been told im retarded, violated the same line in uniflora i told you about
>>1820796set key mouse, on death tutor sea koala, banish key mouse and tree otter for baboon
>>1820802Fine. But we're playing with fire here. Are you sure you wouldn't rather tutor a momonga?
>>1820808thats also an optionvote for >>1820802 to gamble, for for this post to tutor a momonga instead maybe?
You set Key Mouse and pass.TURN 6Gerrard 2800Wisteria 2700>Draw!>During my Standby Phase, I Special Summon Treeborn Frog! But don't worry, it won't stay around for long!>I tribute my Treeborn Frog! Grace us with your presence, Raiza, the Storm Monarch! By Raiza's effect, I put your face-down monster on the top of your deck!>Battle! Storm forth, Raiza!Gerrard 2800 --> 400>It's all over, my little Gerrard! Caius, extinguish his life points!Gerrard 400 -->0YOU LOOSE--------------------------------------------------------------------You were eliminated in the semifinals.The final two duelists are Valon and WisteriaYou're flat on your ass again, beaten.>Just as I said, Gerrard. You might be good, but you still have ways to go if you want to be better than me!She offers you a hand to get up.>Refuse and be a sour little bitch.>Accept and [write in] in response to her.
>>1820887>Accept and [write in] in response to her.>"I'm sure I'll duel you again in the next tournament. Win the next match, okay? It'd look worse for me if you didn't."
>>1820911secondingalso sadness, fucking monarchs
>>1820950Next time we duel her, let's try the fun police. That ought to throw her for a loop.
You take her hand."I'm sure I'll duel you again in the next tournament. Win the next match, okay? It'd look worse for me if you didn't."She smiles beautifully.>Don't worry! I've just beaten the second best duelist in the tournament without breaking a sweat, there's no way I'm loosing the this now!>Tell you what, after I win this thing, I'll take you for a late lunch, my treat! I'll try giving you some tips on how to be such a great player as myself!>Well, I'm off for my prize, ciao!She finally lets go of your hand and runs off, glowing with confidence. You don't see a way how she could loose.The final duel will comence shortly. Both players are preparing.
are greydles around yet?

Now, I offer these three lowly level four monsters of mine as sacrifices for the summoning! I open the dimensional overlay network!
>>1821132OH FUCKITS HAPPENING
*PTSD intensifies*Also i think we should go to the shrine and seek some guidance because our heart of the cards was missing that game
Going to sleep soon, people, but expect episode 12 soon(tm)!
You feel weak by just looking at the events unfolding befre your very eyes. Once again, the portal is opened, but this time three monsters are crushed and sucked in without mercy. You look around and see that others awestruck at the otherworldly sight, including Wisteria herself.>I summon you, beast from a different universe! Accept the power of these 3 and aid me in this duel! Xyz summon! I call upon... Harpie's Pet Phantasmal Dragon!The ghastly apparation appears before your eyes. It is akin to the Harpie's Pet Dragon you know, but at the same time it seems wrong and even unnerving.>What is this...>Battle! My phantom, attack directly!>What? But my monarch...My Dragon can attack players directly! Not only that, as long as it has Xyz materials, Harpie Monsters I control cannot be attacked, including the Dragon itself!>What?!Wisteria 4000 --> 2000Wisteria seems visibly shaken by the attack, but unlike you she remains on her feet. You can see on her face that she will not yield to such minior inconviniences.>Now, on my end phase, I have to detatch one Xyz material from my Phantasmal Dragon, which will be my Harpie Lady #3. I pass!TURN 5Wisteria 2000Valon 1600>...very interesting, Valon, very interesting indeed! However, I draw!>In my Standby Phase, I special summon Treeborn Frog!>Now, I tribute Treeborn Frog for my greatest champion!Grace us with your presence, Caius, the Shadow Monarch!>Now, by Caius'es decree, I banish your...>That won't work, beautiful!>...huh?>You see, I forgot to mention: My harpie monsters are not only immune to attacks, but also being targetted by effects. And you know what that means...>I have to choose a different target for Caius.She says, far less lively than before.>Very well, I banish Caius. By its effect, I deal 1000 damage to you.Valon 1600 --> 600>I...She can't>I pass.TURN 6Wisteria 2000Valon 600>Draw!>This ends here! Battle!>Phantasmal Dragon, go and bring me the trophee!You see Wisteria look at you before the blast hits. You're almost sure she mouthed a "Sorry".Wisteria 2000 -->0Wisteria LostYou run into the smoke cloud, but see nothing. When it finally clears, Wisteria lies before you, unmoving.END OF EPISODE 11
>>1821258Wait, did you just post them delete it?
>>1821270Shoddy quality control.
>>1821269Oh shit!Why the hell is Kaiba letting these dangerous cards be used in his tournament?We should take Wisteria's pulse, then buy her lunch if she's okay.
>>1821258>>1821272You know you can just have your post in a word window to avoid fuck ups right?
>>1821269The people that hide a cards effect till it becomes relevant deserve the gods wrath
>>1821282I did. The fuck-ups were editorial ommitions.
I'm late, but holy fuck. Best girl just got wrecked. Clearly, we need to challenge Valon after this.
>>1821317Not before adding at least 2 mirror force to our deck though. Preferably 3
>>1821386why not raigeki?
>>1821317Once we have a plan. For now we need to make sure Wisteria is alright, then we plan.>>1821386>>1821417 I mean, if we pull those cards that'd be great.
Reminder we already have plenty of girls to waifu if we need to. Or we can go full duel autist and forsake waifus for cardfus incarnate.
>>1821521I'm good with that
Sorry for the relative shortness of the episode, but I wanted to have it finished and it was too late for it to be longer. Hope some of you've liked it anyway.>>1821521Absolutely disgusting.
>>1822946It's cool, QM. I don't mean to pressure you, but when's the next thread? I'm a little hyped.
>>1822950For all I know it could be later today, we shall see. I've some stuff to do but if it goes well I should be free in a couple hours.
>>1822953Nice, hope to see you later then.
>>1822973Don't wait, no episode 12 today after all.
how do i duel?
>>1822953Can we get a link to the next thread when its up?
