Teams are making a big showing at this New Jersey event. The well-publicized success of established teams is certainly making an impact, as more duelists combine to get the most out of their respective members. I ventured out on the floor in search of some local teams and met up with Walter Ward and Glen Fischer, who were happy to share some information about Team Techno Union, their relatively new team.
Canadians have a reputation for subdued lifestyles: we're traditionally accepting, open-minded, friendly, and quiet people. But every now and then we make up for it. Calvin Tsang is part of the exclusive club of Canadians like Don Cherry and Ed the Sock.
He took fourth place at Canadian Nationals with a tweaked version of Chad Justice's Ben Kei deck from SJC Houston. While Ben Kei decks have taken off in circles all over North America, we here at Metagame.com have never taken a detailed look at the deck. With Tsang again running Ben Kei in high-level competition, and banking on it to carry him to a Top 8 finish in Day 1, this deck is definitely worth a look.
