    Okay, so I guess some explaining is in order. I'm going through some insane stuff right now so hopefully effortposting about this will get my mind off of it, or at least distract me for a little while. First and foremost, congratulations to Titto Maret aka @Faith+1 for ending in top 8 of YCS New Jersey last weekend. He was the only one in the room playing my exact 70 card list. His profile is here: In DN picture form, here was the list: Typed out: Main Deck: 40 Monsters: 9 3 Sky Striker Ace - Raye 3 Psy Frame Gamma 1 Darkest Diabolos, Lord of the Lair 1 Ghost Winter & Cherries Something 1 Psy Frame Driver Spells: 28 2 Called by the Grave 2 Foolish Burial Goods >>>2<<< Metalfoes Fusion 3 Pot of Desires 1 Reinforcements of the Army 1 Sky Striker Area Zero Space 2 Sky Striker Mecha - Afterburners! 1 Sky Striker Mecha - Jamming Waves! 2 Sky Striker Mecha Hornet Drones 1 Sky Striker Mecha - Shark Cannon 2 Sky Striker Mecha - Widow Anchor 2 Sky Striker Mecha Modules - Multirole 3 Sky Striker Mobilize - Engage! 1 Terraforming 2 Twin Twisters 1 Upstart Goblin Traps: 3 3 Infinite Impermanence Extra Deck: 15 1 Psy-Frame Lord Omega 1 Scrap Dragon 1 Heavymetalfoes Electrumite 1 Isolde of the Noble Knights 1 Knightmare Mermaid 1 Knightmare Unicorn 1 Knightmare Phoenix 1 Linkuriboh 3 Sky Striker Ace- Kagari 3 Sky Striker Ace - Shizuku 1 SPYRAL Double Helix Side Deck: 15 3 Ash Blossom & Something Something 1 Darkest Diabolos, Lord of the Lair 2 Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode 1 Called by the Grave 2 Mystical Space Typhoon 1 Sky Striker Area Zero Space 1 Twin Twisters 1 Sky Striker Mecha Hornet Drones 3 Typhoon Here were Titto's matchups: Feature Matches: Round 6 vs James Sooklaris: https://yugiohblog.konami.com/2018/06/round-6-feature-match-titto-maret-vs-james-sooklaris/ Top 16 vs Max Reynolds: https://yugiohblog.konami.com/2018/06/top-16-feature-match-maximillian-reynolds-vs-titto-maret/ It's worth mentioning as well that I'm currently 3rd place in DN matches with this list, with a 90% winrate (72-8.) However, some of my losses aren't exactly "real" (losing to giant bees flying into my room making me panic, losing to having a suicidal schizophrenic breakdown against an idiot mid-match, etc) so it's closer to like 76-4: Ok. Now let's talk about the actual list. Why Play Pure Sky Striker? Right. So the first thing I want to make clear is the context this deck was made in. It was around the time Gouki started getting extremely popular, about 2-3 weeks ago now. I had already wanted to play a go 2nd list since going 2nd is preferable in the mirror, and it just so happens that the hand traps that get around Called by the Grave in Gouki are better going second as well, such as Psy-Frame Gamma and Infinite Impermanence. Note that this was right before Trickstar Brandish got extremely popular, which was at the end of last week. However, if you play well, this isn't actually a hard matchup. I'll explain more about that in another post. Anyway, like I said, at the juncture of "good in the mirror" and "best outs to Gouki around Called," we arrived at a go 2nd list maining Gamma and Impermanence. That was the reason to actually play the deck for this event in the first place. Card Choices Some things might confuse people with this list, especially going by the YouTube comments. But there's a reason for every single choice with theory that goes back months now. I'll start with the weird monsters. Diabolos This card is part of a group of cards that go by the logic of "going for damage in the mirror (I'll include Trickstar Sky Striker in this too)." These cards include Twin Twisters, Called by the Grave, Diabolos itself, etc. They can't be considered in separation from eachother. What caused the need for going for damage in the mirror were the Cherries/Evenly builds that became popular online. The way that you beat that deck is just to ignorantly go for damage and not play into Evenly too hard. That's how we originally realized it and started playing these cards, but we stuck with them because going for damage just ended up being better in the mirror anyway regardless of their build, especially with the new End of Match Procedure rules. Naturally, since the cards that adhere to this logic are stronger in the mirror, we want to side more of them in the mirror. That's how we ended up siding a second Diabolos, a third Twin Twister, and a third Called. 1 Cherries The 38th, 39th, and 40th cards in my deck were 2nd Afterburner, Diabolos, and 1 Cherries. I had 3 spots left while building it. I decided that instead of playing three cards that shine in one match up but are bad against others, I'd play cards that are amazing in specific match-ups but that are decent otherwise, diversifying my match-ups. The 2nd Afterburner is good against Altergeist. Diabolos is good in the mirror. Cherries is good against Gouki and Spyral. Just like the Diabolos-Called-Twin Twister idea, these cards cannot be considered apart from eachother, and that's how we ended up with the numbers for them. Now for the weird Spells. 2 Metalfoes Fusion Elephant in room lol. So, just like the last two choices cant be understood apart from their context, the thing that must be realized about Foolish Burial Goods, Metalfoes Fusion, Twin Twisters, Called by the Grave, Airspace, etc is that they're Burning Abyss monsters. What do I mean by this? Recall the logic of the ratios of Burning Abyss monsters in my old BA decks from 2015. Instead of the "3 of one card before any of another" theory, they operated on "since they're the same card effectively and therefore redundant, spread them out as much as possible in numbers to minimize the chance of drawing two of the same one." The aforementioned cards in this deck operate on exactly the same logic. They're all combo cards that are bad in multiples. All that would be left, then, is to demonstrate that Metalfoes Fusion belongs in this list of cards. It is by far the best card to send with Multirole and Airspace, and along with Diabolos, the best card to discard for Twin Twister. Considering we play 8 of those outlets total (even more post-side,) I think we can justify another Metalfoes Fusion. Worst case, it's not that difficult to get them to destroy it when you set it in a format with Trickstar Lightstage, Knightmare Phoenix, and Jamming Waves. The last thing to mention is worries about "how many bricks we're playing." To begin with, it just so happens that Trickstar Reincarnation being in the format is pretty convenient for letting us play more bricks since they'll be replaced with the new hand. Second, Metalfoes Fusion and Diabolos are moreso combo cards than bricks in the traditional "Garnet" sense. The only real brick in the deck is Driver, and even then we still at least have Twin Twister. 1 Field Spell, 1 Terraforming This is just the right order to play them. Seeing them both is fine because you can use Field Spell on the dead Terraforming, which you can't do if you played 2 Field Spell instead. 2nd Field Spell in side comes before 2nd Terraforming because the 2nd Terraforming makes banishing the Field Spell with Desires way more risky. 3 Pot of Desires People say they don't like this card because the mirror is "resource-intensive" and they don't like "banishing too many resources." The reality is that if you're on the "go for damage" logic with Diabolos, Twin Twister, etc, then the mirror isn't about "resources," it's about just killing them. To add to that, you have to get to certain cards as fast as possible in other match-ups. Since, unlike Called by the Grave and Twin Twisters, this card is neutral to what matchup you're against while also being applicable to the same idea that made them 2 of's, this is the first card in order to go to 3. Only 2 Widow Anchor, Shark Cannon Shark Cannon is good against Trickstar, as well as when you're going for damage in the mirror to have a searchable way out of their Raye in Graveyard. It's also good if your Red or Blue get Cherries'd, to reborn theirs. These situations "come up" which dictate a need for it. Widow Anchor is played at 3 a lot, which I don't think is bad. However, it is weak against boards with Knightmare Goblin. I suppose you could argue that they lose anyway when they have boards like this, but they can end on it potentially through a hand trap (ending on a worse board.) Considering you don't really need to Widow Anchor much in the format in a going second list (whereas in a going first one you might just wanna set a bunch of them,) there becomes less of a need for this card, but this counterbalanced by the fact of Desires banishing it and the 2nd in deck "coming up," brings us to 2 copies. 2 Hornet Drones It just sucks when this card gets Cherries'd in the mirror, and Raye is almost always preferable to start with. With 9 starter cards in the deck, along with combinations like Multirole + Field Spell or Twin Twister + Field Spell, as well as the opponent's Reincarnations, I'm not that worried on the impact cutting one has on the consistency of the deck. However, against decks we side in Sphere Mode against, we want all 3. So we end up with 2 mained and 1 sided. That's it for the Spells, and we've already discussed Gamma and Impermanence, which concludes the main deck. Now for the weird stuff in the extra. 1 Scrap Dragon This, along with Omega, clears itself from the Extra Monster Zone. However, unlike Omega, it deals with Floodgates on board. So if they're playing Altergeist and have Anti-Spell up and use Multifaker in hand, you can Gamma it (which they can't Protocol because Faker activated in hand,) then get over the Marionetta or whatever on board to turn off Protocol, then Scrap Dragon the Anti-Spell and you're golden. Works fine against other helmet decks like True Draco as well. 1 Heavymetalfoes Electrumite Mike was the one that convinced me to put this card in as the 15th card over the Hexstia vs Skull Dread I was slaving over. I guess one pendulum did top so it's sort of relevant, moreso than World Chalice anyway. On to the side deck, stuff that hasn't been explained yet. How I Side I'm gonna start by copy/pasting the text document on how to side with this deck. It doesn't include Trickstar because it was made before that deck became popular but the siding against that deck is -3 Gamma -1 Driver -1 Cherries -3 Impermanence +3 Ash +1 Called +1 Diabolos +1 Twin Twister +1 Airspace +1 Drones: 3 Ash Blossom + Something Something This card's function is due to the popularity of Shared Ride, to make going second in the mirror and elsewhere still better even post-side. You hold it for that. 2 Sphere Mode This card acts as another hand trap that they can't Called by the Grave. 1 Hornet Drones This goes along with Sphere Mode mostly, since you can't normal summon Raye the turn you use it. But it's also good against Reincarnation and Anti-Spell Fragrance decks. 2 Mystical Space Typhoon, 3 Typhoon We just aren't losing to Altergeist. MST vs Cosmic Cyclone is debatable, but you can MST your own Field Spell to unbrick yourself. Also, paying for Cosmic Cyclone is not as good with the new End of Match Procedures. Typhoon, it should be mentioned, is also important in the mirror cus it prevents you from losing to a turn 1 Multirole while not being able to be Called by the Graved (unlike Ogre.) We're playing that over Evenly Matched in that matchup because better Altergeist players have caught on to not setting a trillion cards against us, and if they just set a floodgate and maybe a backrow and just try to go aggro we can be in trouble. And that's the deck. Might be subject to change some now that Trickstar is really popular though, but I don't think its a bad matchup if you play well. Once again, huge shoutout to Titto for top 8ing this event. 2 Fusion 2 Strong!

    This past weekend I visited NJ to attend the YCS. I've been planning to go to this event for a while with Pure Brandish and been testing the deck for a really long time. After a whole month or so of testing and finalizing the deck, I was so confident that I would top this event. Fast forward to the night before the event, I room with my family (PPG) hoping I'd learn some stuff off their decks, playtest and get an idea of what the tournament may look like. It ended up being the complete opposite, I learned nothing, barely play tested and didn't really get an idea of what the tournament might end up looking like because nobody was 100% prepared. This event was gonna take place with the new End-Of-Match-Procedure rules and I had no idea how it was gonna work out but I believed that I could just end up winging it and I'll learn along the way since I was still a little confused about it. It was 6am and I haven't slept for about 20 hours and I attempted to sleep but I just couldn't. When I got to the event the first person I saw there was Based Loli and he didn't know what I looked like since we only interact through facebook and discord. He was extremely shocked that I was not black for some reason and offered me cookies made by his girlfriend. But event started like an hour later so I'll go through my rounds and matchups/interesting moments. Round 1 (0-0): Gouki G1: He wins the dice-roll and chooses to go first. I open no hand traps and he normal summons Gouki Suprex and I knew I was fucked. He does the full Gouki U-board combo. I draw for turn, realize I can't win, I move on to game 2 deciding not to reveal what I was playing. When he was doing the combo something felt off because I've seen this combo go off a million times I think he messed up somewhere but had the extender to fix it up so I immediately assumed that he just wasn't that good. G2: I open pretty well, he had no hand traps and I ended on multi-roll, anchor, strike, Shizuku (with rei in grave), and ash in hand. During the end phase I searched engage with shizuku and I pass. He opens marauding captain I chain anchor to negate it, he passes turn. During my turn I was able to plus off my engage and deal some damage over marauding captain. I set more backrow and ended on shizuku again and searched cannon and pass. He realizes he cannot win this game so he scoops and we move on to game 3. G3: He opens junk forward, activates suprex and summons a gouki and on summon I activate cherries to get rid of his Isolode. He had another extender in hand still managed to end on a pretty good board of knightmare link monsters but nothing too hard to get rid of. I open pretty well, I activated rota to search for rei, activated upstart goblin followed by foolish goods dumping my engage so I can grab it back with kagari. His monsters weren't able to be target or destroyed by card effects or destroyed by battle so this was a little bothersome. I active hornet, link into kagari, grab engage, search shark cannon and draw a card. I activated cannon grabbing one of his link-2 monsters in grave then summoning rei into borreload dragon. I took his knightmare goblin with my borreload so his monsters wouldn't be co-linked anymore so they lose their secondary protection effects and attack over another one of his monsters by reducing it by 500 atk points with borreload effect. I link into Knightmare unicorn shuffling away his phoenix. I don't remember much of what happened in the turns after but went a little back and forth. We were both still pretty high on life and there was more than enough time on the clock. I started gaining control of the game. He draws for turn, he has 3 cards in hand. He twin twisters me and I was just completely shook because I didn't think he'd keep that in going first. However I didn't mind because he only had 1 card in hand and I still had more resources then he did. He activates the soul charge that he top-decked and makes a crazy board and I just didn't have enough to come back from it and he kills me the turn after. I was hella tilted. Round 2 (0-1): Paleozoic G1: Round 2 starts my opponent wins the die-roll and chooses to go first. He summons swap frog and I already knew I was gonna win this round because I played this matchup a lot against my friends so I knew exactly how to play it. He ends up setting 3 to his backrow and passes turn. He activates Anti-Spell Fragrance on my draw phase I chain twin twisters popping 2 of his sets then I jamming wave the 3rd set and play free. I negate the swap frog that he summons on his turn so he couldn't get access to toad. He sets 2 to his backrow and passes turn. I link into kagari and bait a strike. I normal summon rei do some damage and use its eff go into shizuku and do more damage. He summons swap frog again I chain impermanence and he scoops. G2: He opens desires, I had no hand traps or twin twisters so I knew this was gonna be a little tough he summons swap sends roning sets 5 and passes turn. He flips Anti-Spell again and I knew I would have to grind this one out. After a bunch of turns I managed to get rid of his Anti-Spell but now he was sitting on a toad and dupe frog and I was lower on life points but I knew I can probably grind this one out. I look at the clock and I see that we have less than 5 minutes so I just decide to scoop and move on to game 3 to prevent any draws. G3: I open double twin twister so this game was just wraps. On his end phase I activate both and he gets angry as shit. On my turn I used my field spell effect excavating the top 3 cards of my deck and he notices that my rota was hobby league or something and I had no idea what that meant or if I did anything wrong and he was saying how I'll get dq'd for playing with a hobby-league card so I might as well just give him the win instead of getting dq'd. I replied with the famous quote "You must be retarded" (s/o Kamal). He calls judge and the judge says that it's okay but I should switch it anyways to prevent any further problems. One of the players sitting next to me gave me his and said I can keep it. I have no idea who he was but thanks a lot. Fast forward, I win the match because I was way higher in life points and I most certainly would've won regardless. Round 3 (1-1): Altergeist G1: Round 3 starts, I lose the die-roll again and he chooses to go first. He summons meluseek links into linkuriboh searches multi-faker sets 4 and passes turn. On my draw phase he flips anti-spell fragrance cuz clearly I just can't get a break from this card. I set 5 spells to my backrow and pass turn. On my end phase he activates protocol, summons faker to summon silq and uses its eff to bounce one of my spells to my hand then he activates spoofing grabbing meluseek and I scooped because I knew I was just not going to win this game and rather not have any problems with the time later. G2: I open my side cards, twin twister, mind crush and typhoon and I knew this game was gonna be wraps. I used my rota to get rei summon rei to link into shizuku set 3 to my backrow, search engage and pass turn. He sets 4 and ends turn. During his end phase I twister 2 of his sets. On my turn I activate engage he chains imperial order and I hit it with typhoon. He activates his faker in hand I chain mind crush and he just scoops the game. G3: I saw twister in my hand so I felt safe. He summons marionetter, sets protocol, sets 4 and passes turn. During my draw phase he activtes Anti-spell fragrance because CLEARLY I CANT GET A BREAK FROM THIS CARD. I chain twin twister discarding upstart gobbling targeting asf and his set protocol and he responds with imperial order. I start crying a little on the inside and I thought I lost this game for sure and I was already planning on eating pizza by round 4. I normal summon rei and go into shizuku searching engage and pass turn. I had 2 spells in my grave yard so his marionetter wasn't able to beat over my shizuku and even if he did I had the rei in my graveyard to float. I knew that my only win condition at this point was to have him pay all his life points away with imperial order and keep playing until the clock ends. After a few turns he summoned meluseek to attack me directly and then send my link monster to the grave, I activated rei's eff to summon and he chained protocol tributing meluseek to get rid of it and then he searched faker. He used faker's eff in hand and I chained my solemn strike. A lot of turns went by and I ended up rei looping again. In between the turns there was one turn where he activates heavy storm duster to pop 2 of my dead set spells instead of his own imperial order since that was the thing killing him. Fast forward time runs out, he loses because he's at 300 LP and I'm at 1300. Round 4: (2-1) Trickstar G1: Round starts and I win the die-roll finally so I choose to go first. I honestly don't remember much of our match but he locked my sets with double field spell and just ended up killing/burning me in 2 turns. G2: I chose first I remember opening mind a lot of backrow with mind crush as one of them and I mind crushed his evenly during the battle phase and he couldn't break anything so it was an easy win. G3: This was a grindy game and we were both very low at LP he top decks candina to get lilly bell but I had an anchor to stop from dying to lilly and he scooped Round 5: (3-1) SPYRAL G1: Round starts and he chooses to go first he opens drone agent and goes into helix. He activates helix eff I chain ash. He activates one for one discarding master plan summoning quik fix getting big red summoning master plan. This guy goes off makes a broken board of trigate and something and ends with sleeper as well with some knightmare protection effects. I was really close to breaking his board. I knew all I had to do was destroy his sleeper and he gets boardwiped. I used up all my resources to bait his cards as much as I can to a point where all I had was rei + Jamming wave in hand and I had nothing to use jamming wave on so I couldn't destroy his sleeper so I lose. I wasn't worried though because SPYRAL SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. G2: My deck is great so I open backrow and ghost belle and he's playing SPYRAL so he either bricks or I negate helix and win. He bricked, normal tough I anchor he pass. This game goes completely my way so I end up winning. G3: I open ghost belle, and cherries when he's going first. He blind calls agent and gets it right then summons tough. I activate cherries, he chains called to the grave. He summons helix, uses effect and I chain ghost belle and he passes turn. I was able to go for goods and multi roll. Engage into hornet bit to get kagari and use engage again but this time to draw. I afterburner away his helix and attack directly. I set a lot to my backrow and pass turn. It all went downhill for him from there. Round 6: (4-1) Ritual Beasts G1: He wins the die-roll so he chooses to go first. This guy summons ritual beast tamer elder and I almost fell off my chair. This guy started playing really fast and im just reading every card and apparently they have a link monster. He kept doing some crazy ass stuff. I see monsters flying all over the place, from grave to banish to field back to banish from fusion summoning into link summoning it was like watching a fireworks show I was shook. So he ends on dolphin sets 2 and passes. I was not impressed. On my draw phase he activates anti spell fragrance and I chain twin twister discarding upstart gobbling destroying asf and his set macro cosmos. So since the fusions and whatever are all quick effs I knew all I had to do was resolve multi roll to literally just auto win the matchup. I activae multi roll and I target my set hornet bit, he had no response. That's where he fucked up because now I just auto win. I activate engage to search another hornet bit and draw a card. On resolution he activates droll & lock bird but I told him that since I am turn player I have priority on the resolution of card effects so I activate hornet bit on resolution and since he cannot respond I chain widow anchor to take his dolphin then I link into kagari get the engage back. I attack for some damage link into phoenix to get rid of his dolphin and I activate engage again to search another anchor. He scoops. G2: He put on another firework show for me and I drew multi roll again so this game was wraps I hope he learned his lesson the first time. He set his steeds and ended on some fusion guy again. I jamming wave the steeds. I activate multi roll send one of my spells to grave, he doesn't respond. I upstart goblin into a card and he doesn't do anything on resolution. This game was over because I engage to a quick play card again and literally do the same thing so gg. Round 7: (5-1) 60-Card Gouki [Cameron Neal] G1: He wins the die-roll so he chooses to go first. I was so excited when I saw I had to play against this guy because I love trolling the fuck out of him this is Mr. Hot Dog Water himself. He summons Armageddon knight I chain ash and he passes his turn nice deck bro. I activate goods send my engage then I normal summon kagari, activate field spell target my rei chain into kagari I hit a multi-roll so I grab that kagari got me my engage. I activate engage set up my multi roll anchors and impermanence I attack over the knight, summon shizuku, set all my stuff search engage and pass turn. G2: I have a sphere mode in hand but I have no hand traps and he opens the U-board with necro gardna in grave. Now I haven't slept for almost 36 hours so I was gonna misplay at one point and BOY DID I FUCK UP. I OPENED THE ABSOLUTE NUTS AND I MESSED UP! So I had an iblee in field and he had the full board obviously. Instead of tributing goblin, Cerberus and linkuriboh, I tribute over goblin, linkuriboh and PHOENIX. I have no idea why I tribute over the phoenix and after I did that I felt Kamal's spirit touch me and the spirit told me "You must be retarded". So he also had 1 set card with the board and any logical person would obviously assume its called to the grave because I didn't even handtrap him so what else can it be? So since I didn't tribute over his Cerberus none of his monsters were going to be destroyed by card effects so I activate the multi roll then I activated field spell sent the iblee got an engage then I used multi roll on the iblee and SOMEHOW AFTER ALL THOSE PLUSES ALL I ENDED ON WAS multi roll + borreload dragon and he still had a link monster left on board. I played this turn really bad but I knew that I still won because I would set all my cards back and he wouldn't be able to out my borreload since I have anchor in the grave to take away his out. I activate roll to set 4 cards but he says "end of main phase 2" he twisters my roll. WHO KEEPS IN TWISTER GOING FIRST? CAMERON HOT DOG NEALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! Now he does a few combos and gets some monsters on board but nothing enough to get over borreload he makes gryphon and sets his rematch from grave and passes. I draw ghost ogre for turn but that didn't help much. Next turn he rematches his gouki guys back and made one of them big enough to get over borreload. G3: Neither of us put any damage, nobody was slow-playing but time ran out and I got a draw. If only I didn't mess up during game 2 I had this match in the bag so I was back on tilt. Round 8: (5-1-1) Altergeist G1: I won the die-roll so I chose to go first. I don't remember much about this match but I end up winning game 1 by grinding him out and ghost ogre is really good card and it caught him off at the right moment. G2: I opened twister and typhoon and I sided in mind crushes even though I was going second and I was able to hit his marionetter that he searched off the spoofing leaving him without much plays and I beat him because of that. Round 9: (6-1-1) Trickstar Strikers [Bohdan Temnyk] We got re-pairings this round. My first opp was free af. I asked if I can see what he drew since they declared re-pairing and he had cyber dragon toon table of content dark hole trickstar reincarnation and some other card. I have no idea how he made it this far lmao. G1: I play against Bohdan and apparently he knew me or something he was really nice and he's a funny guy. I win the die-roll and go first. I didn't open that well But I managed to end on multi-roll double anchor. He uses hornet into kagari grabs back the hornet then phoenix's one of my anchors and discards reincarnation. I chain my anchor to negate it. He uses the field spell and searches candina locks my other anchor. He gets lilly belle with candina and summons the lilly. He uses lilly, pheonix and candina tp make firewall. He uses reincarnation to revive the lilly and he attacked me directly for 1000 damage. He uses his lycoris In hand to send back the lilly summoning lycoris under his firewall then he crashes his lycoris which triggered firewall effect and he attacks me with lilly again for another 1000 he grabbed back lycoris then use lycoris agains to bounce lilly and summon lycoris under firewall. This was a otk firewall loop and he basically just killed me that turn. I was completely shook because I have never seen this play but apparently its a thing, I thought it was really cool. G2: I don't remember much of this game I remember I had ogre In hand with anchor, mind crush and cannon set down. He tries to field spell lock one of my sets and I chain ogre then he summons candina I let that go through. He gets lilly belle and I mind crush for it and he didn't really have much to do after that. I kept +ing next turn and eventually he just scooped after a few turns later of some grind. G3: We have less than 4-5 minutes of the clock and we are siding. I was pretty sure I was gonna win since it's better to go second in time in my opinion because it's easier to do damage with anchors. Now this is where it gets crazy. We started game 3 with very little time. Bohdan ended on lycoris, 2 sets. His hand was Candina + unknown. I had less than a minute to close off the game. I set widow anchor. I activate multi roll (I was playing around droll and reincarnation this way so I can steal his monster and attack for game) I activate twin twister pitching a random spell he chains reincarnation I chain 2 hornets and he chains shared ride. Everything resolves and he draws a card after the I drew from reincarnation because of the shared ride. I drew into rei but on resolution he drolls me which is exacty what I was expecting. I link summon into kagari targeting my widow anchor he chains ghost ogre destroying the kagari. I get the widow anchor to my hand and he takes SO LONG to write -400s on his notepad. This dude was capping his pen and everything. At this point he has nothing to stop me, no disruptions or anything so I basically win the game. I link summon my other token into shizuku, attempt to widow anchor his lycoris. This guy was acting like he was completely drunk or something. "I don't know whats going on right now" and I kept saying "Anchor anchor anchor" and this guy is slow af so I take his lycoris myself and declare battle phase and the split second after I declare battle phase they called time of the round. Then he says he never agreed to the battle phase but he never had anything to stop me anyways since I knew his hand, field and graveyard. This guy starts getting really angry saying I played out my turn slow and but at the same time he claimed he didn't know what was going on because I played too fast but I only had less than a minute to finish my turn so he made completely no sense. A judge was watching and he asked if Bohdan agreed to battle phase and he did not. I told him that he didn't really have to agree because he had nothing to stop me anyways so if he's gonna be thinking for no reason that's basically stalling out the time and his claim was he didn't know what was going on but all I did was link summon and activate anchor for his lycoris. So I said "Ok bro what card did you have to respond with? If you have something to stop me anywhere you can have the win" and he responded "I don't wanna argue anymore you completely slow played". Lol???????????????????????????? A judge comes over and just asks if Bohdan agreed to bp which he did not. So the judge tells me to sign the slip and that he wins. After I sign the slip, the judge tells me "If you don't agree with our resolution you can just appeal" so I said "Ok I'll appeal then" and the judge responds "Nope too late you already signed the slip" even though he told me to sign the slip. So I basically just got completely YEET'd on. Bohdan tells people that I cheated him lol. The players who were watching told me I definitely deserved that win and he was being a complete asshole. After this Day 1, they posted the standings and I had made it to day 2 with my record of 6-2-1 which still had the chance to top. Day 2 Round 10: (6-2-1) Gouki [Xu, Shunping] G1: I don't remember much of what happened here but I won this game. He tries to shark me because I had an extra deck card in a sleeve that was bigger than the others and I told him that its basically just a divider for me to separate my side deck and he calls a judge about it too lol nice shark bro. G2: He opens the U-board I had opened none of my 12 hand traps or sphere modes so gg. G3: I OPEN THE ABSOLUTE NUTSSSSSS!! I ended on Multi-roll Shizuku field spell 4 set cards (Mind crush, impermanence, anchor, strike). I had 4 in hand, 1 ghost belle and 1 cherry. This was actually wraps, no way he can win. On his turn he attempts to go to the battle phase which was fine. He attempts to go the end of bp I said "At the start of bp, Ill mind crush for evenly matched". Now there was a judge watching us play, the same judge that watched me and Bohdan played and handled that situation. He tells me that I cannot use mind crush because my opponent has priority throughout the whole battle phase and I have to wait for him to end the battle phase or wait for him to activate something. I said that doesn't make any sense. The judge response "I'll get another judge" and I thought I heard him say "I'll get the head judge" so I was under the impression that the head judge will resolve this. The other judge comes up and agrees that I can't use mind crush for the same exact reason and I thought this was the head judge. He stood kinda behind my shoulder and I didn't look back to see if it was the head judge or not. I ask a 3rd judge randomly if this is true and he also says it is so I MUST be wrong and fucked up. He says best time to mind crush for evenly was to do it at the end of main phase 1 lol thx. So he chains evenly to the mind crush and evenlys my whole board but I still had 2 hand traps in hand. So he gets to discard a card from my hand now that I basically called mind crush wrong. He hits the ghost belle out of my hand. He summons 2 monsters and I activate cherries and he activates called to the grave. I sign the slip and walk away. I go to the actual head judge and tell him about the ruling and apparently all 3 of those judges were wrong and what I did was completely legal. Turns out my opp is actually a judge as well and he judged events before which explains why he looked a little confused about the ruling as well but he didn't say anything about it since it favored him. Also, those judges that handled my situation with the mind crush were the same exact judges that handled my situation with Bohdan so bravo to them. At this point I was 6-3-1 so I had no chance of topping and my opponent didn't show up for the next round anyways but that was expected so I ended the event with a record of 7-3-1. First loss to a top deck soul charge Second loss to shark/cheat and the judges Third loss to the judges I believe my deck performed extremely well and I'm sure I am missing more detail in my rounds but this is all I can remember since I went almost 40 hours of no sleep for day 1 and mind was dead. I had a great time at the event with friends and I would like to shoutout everyone who play-tested with me, theorized, and helped me build my deck. Sad that I couldn't make it to top cut because of such dumb reasons. Big shoutout to Gabriel Molina for getting me a whole deck to play for no cost. Shoutouts to my team Tea & Biscuits cuz we da best and shoutout to my boys at PPG said I didn't get to join cuz I didn't top but im with them in spirit. Individual shoutouts for helping me play test and deck build: Noelle Me. Hash Nicey Milk Samoopusteno and all my other irl friends Couldn't have done it without you guys. During the event, Loli was telling everyone that I was a psycho-path because I catfish people online telling them that I'm black and I look like Lil Yachty and everyone seemed to buy his story. Even though I took a major L this event, the biggest win was that I got Kamal's number which is valued more than a YCS Top so I left NJ with a W. Decklist: https://imgur.com/1ewiGrM

    remember that old exarion-era google doc that was kinda helpful but kinda all over the place? the one that DB randoms netdeck weird harpie lady and relinquished decks from to this day? remember looking back on it sometime since the advent of DB and thinking something to the effect of "man, this was probably a lot more helpful back when exarion was played in everything circa 2014, but it's really hard to get anything out of this now in retrospect and it would probably be a bitch and a half to update it all?" well, the owner did all that work required to update it for the modern goat meta and more, and revamped it into an entire website that you can find here: https://goatformat.weebly.com/ be sure to drop by his reddit thread and show him some love. there's a lot of useful shit here and it's all presented in a neat and digestible way. the only flaw is that the deck section has yet to include comprehensive sections on what we've come to know as "Chaos Control" aka "Thunder Dragon Chaos" and "Angel Chaos." but that doesn't take away at all from how helpful everything else is.

    Even if you killed Soph, I had you pegged. To be honest, I read Tyranno as scum after the flip simply because Soph, Jazz, and I were all "this is probably the way this plays out, but be paranoid Soph/TGT/Logic/Jazz are scum if it gets to LYLO, but Tyranno never made any kind of comment like that. Faint played amazing this game, I also thought Soph, myself, and Jazz all played pretty strong games. TGT played fine given the circumstances.

    This is gonna be a closed setup, with no claiming (don't even hint) and no role reveal (to the players) upon death. I need at least 8 players to make this game work, but the more the merrier. Post Quota will be 4 posts a day phase and since I have common sense there will not be a vote quota. My time is pretty flexible so I'll let the players decide if we wanna do 24/36/48 hour phases Players: Malcolm Brandis Jazz Sage Walia Tyranno Number2 Hazmah JerichoTheUnwise Subs: Faint And yes. There will be flavor. And lots of it.

    let me tell you a story of how i became a journyman it was a long time ago in a country not far away i was an alcoholic man without any hope with a bottle of whiskey on hand i was walking down the midnight downtown streets where the bars were lit and the people were drunk of legal age, i go into a bar where people were dancing their lives away sloppy hook ups happened that night and i woke up next to a fat chick i screamed my ass off and she woke up she started hitting me and hitting me and flailed and flailed i put my clothes on and she was like "hit the road, jack, and don't ya come back" ashamed and embarrassed, i ran and i ran out of the city and out of state and out of the country and into the ocean there i swam and swam until i arrived in japan there i ran and ran again into the mountains and into the woods there i ran until i saw a man meditating under a waterfall for an unspecified amount of time i introduced myself and him to me he took me as an understudy and i lived happy, away from that fat bitch and my lost pride we learned how to catch fish with our bare hands and cooked them over a fire we both contemplated our mistakes, regretted our wrongs upon others, and forgave our the ills inflicted upon both of us we spent the twilight hours of the evening developing advanced survival strategies which helped him with mafia skills and helped me with sobering up we both killed animals and used their bones to sail back to america along with the tree bark we peeled i thanked him for his help and returned back to my hometown at midnight relieved of my adventures, i made the trek back to my house by going through downtown walking back on the streets and seeing all the drunks, i not only ignored their shock and awe of seeing me again, but i laughed them off then, i saw my bottle of whiskey back where the bar was, took a huge drink, then became my alcoholic self again and went into the bar and hooked up with the same chick, becoming the person i used to be

    Alright you primitive screwheads listen up You see this? THIS IS A NEW MAFIA GAME. There's no fixed size but I want at least 7 players ideally, more would be better. Rules will be posted at the start of the game - it's not going to be a super rule chaos game but it'll have some fun quirks (I want to wait for size before deciding on some rules) Signups close at 1 AM EDT on Friday - I just made the topic lock itself to make my life a little easier. Lets fucking go. 1: The Golden Tyranno 2: BuildtheWalia 3: Faint 4: Jazz 5: MacDude 6: The Antagonist 7: Sophocles 8: Broken Brillance 9: Malcolm 10: Logic 11: Sage

    Just started trying this deck out last night after researching it the past 2 days and I have to say I'm very grateful for the wonderfully well thought out and detailed op. I haven't played since last year Zoo nats format so getting used to the year's worth link era increase in cardpool has been the greatest challenge. I tried out all the ideas in the op toon engine, goods/fusion, diabolos and different ratios of theme cards and hand traps. I feel like there's a handful of good generic cards that can supplement the lack of aggression and game ending potential we're missing in the TCG without needlefiber, but for the most part I think pure Brandish is extremely viable if not the best variant due to versatility and ability to out grind the mirror especially if they dilute themselves with another engine. More than anything I'm glad to be playing again and am eager to engage in theory discussions with the members of this site once again. There's a couple of things which experience actually playing the deck taught me were slightly off as presented in the op. I think it's actually not a bad idea to build the deck with the idea of getting 3 spells in grave asap since the marginal benefits rack up quickly especially with engage's draw, but in general the mirror gets significantly easier when you have more spells in grave than your opponent, thanks to red you can be more aggressive against all match-ups early on if you fill the grave. Noelle is right to warn against haphazardly building to get 3 spells but if the proper thought is given to achieve this goal less directly and as a consequence of improving the deck's consistency overall then pitfalls like limiting the deck's versatility can be avoided. I think the most egregious offender of blindly building to get 3 spells is the toon engine, not so much because of the potential to draw bad hands with multiple toons but mainly because nothing substantial is achieved with those 3-4 slots as cyber dragon is seldom impactful and can sometimes be awkward or useless and cannon soldier in enabling Diabolos is even more limited. This engine limits the deck's versatility to an intolerable degree imo for the little it accomplishes, its the type of thing that's popular on pojo because they can't see the big picture(the deck's goals and win conditions). The best goals for deck building should simply involve improving access to rei, engage, and less crucially 3 spells in grave asap this ensures that you will outpace the opponent in the mirror with good technical play, if in the process versatility can be increased all the better, toon engine doesn't assist in seeing rei or engage turn 1. In my build I achieved all three goals by playing 3 Terraforming, 3 field spell, 3 mst, and 3 twin twister. Field spell+mst/twin twister+any theme spell results in floating rei, red->blue, that same spell in hand, 3 spells in grave or more depending on terraforming and twin twister, and potentially one more brandish card off reveal from field and you can play around cherries. Mst and Twin twister are vastly more versatile than toon engine and open up room in the side that would normally go to addressing IO and ASF games 2 and 3, as well as allowing plays to be made more easily against the mirror. As far as I can tell the only practical way to improve the chances of seeing engage is with field spell and foolish goods, goods engine with fusion is already extremely versatile at all points in the game. Another card I chose to play which was undersold in the op and that works really well with the extra s/t removal and field spells is Hercules Base which almost guarantees you win the grind against the mirror not just by allowing you to recycle your extra deck maidens but also by getting draws from beating over their links and cutting their rei off from floating or netting an extra draw.

    I for one am a fan of building decklists for the explicit purpose of showing everyone "the game becomes less fun when X card is involved. consider doing something about it." that sort of "choosing not to play a card because one has already decided the card shouldn't ever be involved" attitude is counterproductive if you believe a card is deleterious to a rich and enjoyable gameplay experience, play that card in order to prove that your belief comports with fact.
