Six Samurai win YCS Indy (Indianapolis)!

I apologize for not making any blog posts for the last week. I've been settling into Uni and it's been a stressful beginning to a presumably stressful year.

But yeah. Six Samurai has won YCS Indy!

The pilot bested the force that is Wind-Ups, a more powerful force that has shown it's skill in the previous YCSs (Toronto and Guatemala). Sams has been considered a tier 2 deck for a while now but against certain decks (Especially Rogue decks), they can be very good. It's clear that the best Six Samurai players make sure their decks can access any of the 3 Naturia Synchros when they need them, which allows them to shut down the most important card type at that current time. Of course, Wind-Ups can access Shock Master for essentially 0 cost, but the card overall does not hurt Sams nearly as much as in the mirror match or against Burn/Countdown.
