On Saturday, we held our first ever Duel Masters Booster Draft Tournament at my place, for ages 15+. Six players participated in total, both male and female participants. The entry fee for the tournament was PKR 100/- and the prizes for the winners were the following:
– 1st Prize – PKR 350/-
– 2nd Prize – 2 Booster packs (one each of Base Set DM-1 and Evo Crushinators of Doom DM-02
– 3rd Prize – 1 Booster pack of Rampage of the Super Warriors DM-03
– 4th Prize – 1 Booster pack of Thundercharge of Ultra Destruction DM-07
Previously, we had been dueling 1-on-1 or triple threats, even 2-on-2 battles at times, but we all enjoyed this booster draft format in Duel Masters. I will surely explain theory of drafting in my other post.
We played the tournament with 2 packs each of Base Set and Evo Crushinators of Doom; the first two releases of Duel Masters Trading Card Game. I have to say, it was really hard to get hands on to these, but in the end, I got these for just PKR 10/- per pack (PKR 240/- for the whole 24 pack booster) from Victoria, Link Road Lahore.
The Base Set has no evolution creatures, but the DM-02 release; Evo Crushinators of Doom had 10 evolution creatures, so it made the drafting situation very exciting. Since, if a player wanted to play an evolution creature, he had to draft as many copies base creatures of the same race as that of the evolution creature if he were to play it in the battle zone.
At the end of the drafting, I ended up drafting 11 nature cards, 14 Darkness Cards, 10 Water cards, and 5 Fire Cards. I build my deck from the three out of four civilizations I drafted; darkness, nature and water. Since Fire cards were very low in numbers, and I would have found them hard to play, I took those out which eventually helped me win all of my battles.
In the tournament, I came up against some worthy players with Fire-Light combo decks, a blocker deck, and water-darkness decks. However, I managed to beat all of them, but it was tough. I won the tournament without losing a game, and ended up PKR 250/- richer.
I have a big collection of Duel Masters Cards but I do not have all. If you want to sell or buy Duel Masters Cards, you are most welcome.
