"If you were to play in Nationals today, what Standard deck would you use?"

"Why do Japanese teams change their roster so much?"

藤田剛史: "Everyone's looking for a consistent combination."Masahiko Morita: "Usually because everyone gets into a big argument after an event and breaks up."Itaru Ishida: "Most Japanese players have so many friends, they figure they can team up with anyone they know. Of course, that means it's hard to develop as a team."

"Who is currently the best player in Japan?"

Olivier Ruel: "Jin Okamoto"Alex Shvartsman: "That's a difficult question to answer. I'd have to go with Katsuhiro Mori, simply because he has the best results on the Pro Tour. Still, it's a tough choice with Jin Okamoto and Tsuyoshi Fujita both performing consistently well, and you can't forget about Panzer Hunters either."Sam Lau: "Katsuhiro Mori. It's intimidating to play against him because he's so fast."
