The Goat Format Clash of Champions is underway! Only the best of the best were invited to today's event. With so many well known and accomplished players, and every match worthy of showcasing, it's an exciting day for everyone! Players are at the top of their game, bringing their favorite decks with the hopes of taking home the gold and winning a slot at the Goat Format World Championships! Sporting an interesting Chaos Return list, Dingosig has decided to use a tried and true deck to carry him to the top!
this incredibly powerful trap card, the Return player will often have an ace up their sleeve, threatening to fill their board and swing for game at a moment's notice. While running a full set Spy and Deko, the opponent will think twice before slinging a Nobleman of Crossout, lest they be overwhelmed by the potential hail of monsters that could rain down as a result.
It seems that Dingosig is quite familiar with Return Chaos. Having been asked why they played the strategy today, and what factors played into their card choices, they had this to say:
This is the deck I'm the most comfortable with. I got my first tournament results with it a while back during ACS6, and I think it's still good against the current meta. I also didn't have the time to experiment different stuff lately so I couldn't afford to play something different.
I wanted to build a Chaos Return deck, and I liked the three Spy, three Deko, three Angel shell, so I went from there. I made the deck more aggro with Blade Knight and Solemn to fit my playstyle, and because I think it makes Return better.
While not an uncommon strategy to see, Dingosig seems to have put on their Iron Chef hat for the day, and has added a bit of spice to an otherwise interesting-but-familiar flavor of deck.
Three Deko and three Spy help Return to be very consistent against any deck that also plays Spy and Deko, like Chaos Turbo. I like how versatile the deck can be. Sometimes, you play aggressively with beaters and Solemn, and sometimes games will be slower with cards like Spy, Angel, Roulette. Games are rarely boring with this deck.
I think my Warrior matchup is decent with Spy, Angel, Roulette and Blade Knight. I decided to make it better by maining Sakuretsu Armor over Trap Dustshoot. I don't think you can afford to play too many dead cards against Warrior when the deck sees so much usage. Unfortunately, I still lost to Warrior in my third match, but it was pretty close and my luck wasn't amazing, so I'm still confident with the deck. Other Warrior matches are awaiting me, so I'll do my best to win those.
One last thing, Zaborg is pretty good! Of course, it has the big downside of being a dead card sometimes, but each tournament I'm always surprised with how I can manage to do stuff with him, even against Warrior.
It looks like Dingosig has a real shot at winning the event! Even with the unfortunate pairing against his team mate Lukaz, there still seems to be a powerful optimism surrounding him. Let's see if that confidence follows him to absolute victory!
