  1. Bazoo didn't see much play back in Feb 04 if I recall. Breaker, CoTH/Reborn/Premature are all staples in the format as well as Jinzo. Though there were some events in New York where it seemed everyone that topped sided Jinzo instead of maining it.
  2. I'm willing to test it. There's nothing in the way of events or anything for the format for a while though so it's kind of on the back burner for me. I'll play with it and let you know.
  3. Storm may as well be a second Duster, though. When you're looking to drop the Yata lock, Storm is as valuable as Duster. Tornado and Trunade are not playable I don't think (though it doesn't stop people from playing them), I agree. But Storm is definitely main-deck worthy in Feb 04 in my opinion. MST is great but really it's main purpose is to out Imperial Order because Storm and Duster are going to clear the rest of them when you're trying to establish control of hand and board. Imperial Order is definitely one of the best traps and biggest threats of the format.
  4. So I actually had a chance to participate in a Feb 04 tourney this past weekend. We had a surprising turnout for such a polarizing format but I can say, honestly, that Magical Scientist OTK is iffy at best in the format and that Waboku is perhaps the most underrated trap card in the game. Preventing an early Yata lock is paramount in that format and Waboku is one of the few surefire ways to counter it. I think it should definitely be considered a staple in the format.
  5. Well there are some promising alternatives cropping up. If you're a part of the Goat Format Discord server that @Ynusgridorh setup you can see some of the progress that's been made in adding Goat Format and manual play to YGOPro Salvation. Dueling Book is also supposedly coming out soon but Ynus knows more about that than I do. Regardless, there's still a community of people who play. Once we have a good alternative to DN I think the format will kick back up. Right now it's tough to discuss Goat Format considering no one is really playing it outside of a casual setting or local tourneys that often have vastly different metagames to what we see online.
  6. That's dope. I went to a tournament this past Saturday in Salem, OR. Eight people, three rounds, top 4 cut. I went 2-1 and won $12.50 credit. Made a couple of key mistakes in my second match but they were procedural (for some reason my side deck and my main got shuffled together between Rounds 1 and 2 and I didn't catch it til the match started so I took a G1 loss, and my opponent had Jinzo then flipped Dustshoot and I didn't catch it til my hand was face-up on the table). Considering I had zero preparation for it I thought I did well. If you go, good luck. We don't ban Empty Jar but I kind of wish we did lol.
  7. This was exactly my thinking too. With just 1400 ATK he's not running over much. If he had piercing he'd be solid because of his effect, but his stats make him subpar. Though I will say it's hilarious setting Don and then watching them swing with Exarion and drop to 1400. That's a lot of fun. But that's one of the only scenarios where you'll be getting damage in - if you're attacking thru an open field with a Don, you'll likely win the game if you had another monster in its place.
  8. How is no one using it right? Not trying to be combative, just curious as to your thoughts on it. I personally love Don Zaloog but often find him underwhelming in Standard Goat.
  9. I think an option for all three is the best way to go, even if people don't play much CRV. Who knows, down the line we may end up deciding that we like CRV and that it's a better format (I don't know how likely this is, but when you look at theory from 2005...well...anything can happen, eh? Lol). Also, options are just good in general. I know a few people who like CRV goats not as a main format but as a break from standard (be that -Exarion or not). If something is decided I hope that it will be the option to include the three main variants of the format.
  10. So I have a question. Why Dekoichi over Dark Mimic LV1 in Standard Goat sides? Against any deck that you side in Dekoichi you don't side out Meta, so it seems to me the Level 1 aspect would synergize well with the rest of the deck. It's also a DARK, like Dekoichi. The only difference I can see is the fact that Dekoichi has 1400 ATK, which isn't all that useful against anything you side him in against. I feel like in any situation where you'd have Dekoichi, Dark Mimic would be strictly better as he makes Meta live. If you're in a situation where you're setting against beaters, the 1000 DEF is the same. If you're in a situation where you can flip it, though, access to TER I feel is strictly better than 1400 LP damage. I'm just wondering what the theory is on Dekoichi over Dark Mimic, mostly.
  11. So if you're playing Dust Tornado in the main you basically just don't side against it at all, eh?
  12. Kris Perovic has an interesting take on Morphing Jar in his duel against ACP, which is on YouTube.
  13. Here's a question: how would someone go about siding against a Gravekeeper deck? Like, what standard cards that are in most side decks would be beneficial against it?
  14. It was hilarious, he's like "activate Dustshoot," so I lay my hand down. He's looking at my hand, praising the hell out of it, ultimately says "I'll discard Duo." I'm like...dafuq? No, you can't do that, gotta pick a monster and it doesn't discard it shuffles it into the deck. So he hems and haws and ultimately picks Faith, then a couple of turns later he tries to Dustshoot after playing his own Duo and getting me down under four cards. I was like you've gotta be kidding me dude. Smh.
  15. So I went to another IRL goat tourney this past weekend. 8 players, 3 rounds, top 4. Went 3-0 in swiss and everyone wanted to split top 4 so we all got $12.50 credit. Spy is freaking everywhere in my area holy lord. Lots of different tech in everyone's deck. Played a guy afterward that played Dustshoot and thought you could hit any card and you could do it any time regardless of hand size. Smh. But it was good nonetheless, lots of relatively skilled players in the area.
