You only need 2 Chiwen when you're running 2 Jiaotu and a Masked Chameleon.
Not sure why he only had 2 path. You need to be running 3 of that card.
Skill Drain is likely in the side, I don't see how he could do so well without it unless he was running 3 Mistake and 3 SIM instead.
Unleashed is actually ideal because he doesn't have the LP cost cards such as solemn warning and skill drain (in his main) so he can play VERY aggressively. In that case, however, he REALLY should be running 3 path, which still doesn't make sense.

Look at all the powerful cards in the extra deck, I don't think he wants those effects negated. Also, in the current meta, Qliphorts benefit off Skill Drain and i'm sure everybody has side cards for it.

I can see three Path getting really cloggy.

Indeed, a Herald cannot do much if Skill Drained. There's two ways to make it work;

Run Skill Drain and make it immune to traps(and spells if with chiwen).

Don't run Skill Drain and it cannot be destroyed by battle.

Problem is now there are meta decks which profit from Skill Drain ^^
