Europe And America: How Wind-Ups Won (TCGPlayer)
"How did a deck with minimal representation in the last few YCS tournaments go on to win not just the North American WCQ, but also Europe's WCQ in Milan one week later?

Taking down Obelisk the Tormentor (Konami)

It’s almost an invincible monster, and if you want to win a big Sealed Play tournament like the Ultimate Challenge or the upcoming YCS in Sheffield you’ll have to learn how to deal with it!"
