Duel 1

Player B went first with a summon of Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter with the additional Normal Summon provided by an acitvated Disciples of the True Dracophoenix. Using his entitled Normal Summon of the turn, Spellbook Magician of Prophecy fetched Spellbook of Knowledge.

Spellbook of Knowledge was then used immediately, sending Spellbook Magician of Prophecy for a two-card draw.

Magical Meltdown was then activated, and the Invoked engine of the deck comes into play. Searching for Aleister the Invoker, 海狗 set a card in the far right column turn ended.

It is now 偉's turn. A summon of Magibullet Shooter Caspar started off the turn. 偉craftily placed Magibullet Shooter Caspar in the same column as 海狗's face-down card. This prompted a response from 海狗 - activating the set trap card, revealing it to be True King's Apocalypse. Activating it with the effect for an Additional Normal Summon, summoning Majesty Maiden, the True Dracocaster.

Having been sent to the graveyard, the Trap Card True King's Apocalypse opted to destroy Magibullet Shooter Caspar but not before Magibullet Shooter Caspar was able to search.
A minor ruling dispute occured, and (presumbly) the judge of the event was called to resolve the issue.
Despite being able to,  偉 ultimately decided not to trigger the effect of Magibullet Shooter Caspar as he was facing both Majesty Maiden, the True Dracocaster and Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter. 偉  ended the turn by setting a card in the Spell/Trap zone.

海狗 went ahead with his turn, uninterupted, with Aleister the Invoker fetching Invocation. An ensuing Fusion Summon banished Magibullet Shooter Caspar for the summon of Invoked Mechaba.

A timely Scapegoat prevented 偉 from losing the game. Luckily for him, 海狗 had no Spell cards in hand to negate its activation.

A counterattack by 偉 started with Link Summoning, bringing two Tokens together to form Proxy Dragon and Linkuriboh. Magibullet Shooter The Kid was summoned next. Instant Fusion was activated in the same Column as Magibullet Shooter The Kid, bringing out Thousand-Eye Restrict. Successfully resolving the Spell Card, Magibullet Shooter The Kid could activate its effect. However, Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring ruined the plan.

Thousand-Eye Restrict attempted to activate its effect on Invoked Mechaba, but Invoked Mechaba responded with its own effect, negating it. 偉 followed up with a Magibullet - Cross-Dominator targeting Invoked Mechaba, but 海狗 would not leave this chance to waste, activating his Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter's effect.

The final card to this Chain sequence was the activation of the Set True Draco Apocalypse. Resolving the Chain, Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King was brought onto the field, tributing away True Draco Apocalypse and Invoked Mechaba.

This allowed Invoked Mechaba to dodge the negation by Cross-Dominator and banish Thousand Eye Restrict. True Draco Apocalypse was then used to destroy Proxy Dragon, which opted to not utilise its effect.

A True King Revival was brought onto the field due to Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter.

The result was a massive board advantage for 海狗. 偉 could only lament and surrender the first game, as Magibullet - Dancing Needle failed to change the face of the game.

偉- 0 海狗 - 1

Duel 2

偉 started the duel with Magibullet Shooter Caspar and a Upstart Goblin activated in the same Column as it. Magibullet - Cross-Dominator was added via Magibullet Shooter Caspar's effect. A card set in a different Column and that was the end for Wei's turn.

Special Summoning Gameciel the Sea Turtle Kaiju quickly got rid of Magibullet Shooter Caspar. Cosmic Cyclone was baited out and revealed when Disciples of the True Dracophoenix was activated.

海狗 took advantage of the current 2000LP difference and went for an all-out assault. True Draco Heritage gained him an Additional Normal Summon, which he used and Advance Summon Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter using a True Draco Trap, destroying Gameciel the Sea Turtle Kaiju in the process. The Invoked engine did the next bulk of the work, with Aleister the Invoker fetching Invocation.

Spellbook Magician of Prophecy was sent from the hand to resolve Spellbook of Knowledge, giving GOU a two-card draw. Invoked Cocytus was summoned out with Invocation and it was used to attack with directly alongside Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter.

An attempt to turn the tables with the combined efforts of Magibullet - Death-perado and Magibullet Shooter The Kid got 海狗 True King Revival when he triggered his Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter's effect. Despite being destroyed by Magibullet - Death-perado, Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter was revived by True King Revival. The recycled Invoked engine was reused again the following turn.

At the summon of Aleister the Invoker, a spectator suggested that more damage could have been dealt the previous turn, which could have been lethal. Invoked Mechaba's 3500ATK (with a boost from Alesiter the Invoker) combined with Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter's 2500ATK could have taken out 6000 out of the 7000LP that 偉 had.

Aleister the Invoker's search was interuptted by 偉 's Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, but 海狗 had Spellbook of Secrets to follow up. Unfortunately, it was answered by Magibullet - Deadman's Burst. 海狗 turned towards brute force as the answer, switching Dinomight Knight, the True Dracofighter to ATK position and attacking with all his monsters, winning the second duel.

偉- 0 海狗 - 2

With draw power provided by the Spellbook engine, 海狗 won both games with the efforts of the Invoked and True Draco archetype, leaving no arguments to be made. The advantage generated by the True Draco archetype is indeed one to be respected and beware of.
