  1. Pure Zoodiac TL;DR mark edition

    Shouldn't it be -1 boarbow, +1 hammerkong. definitely the utility of hammerkong shutting off whips, pianissimo, and forced dridents is better than the second boar for game shots.
  2. April 2014 Format - The End of the Era

    i can confirm format was OP i got my first top at that NAWCQ losing to 1 misplay in rounds and 1 infernity player. when i made top 64 i lost to teammate of that same infernity player playing same deck card for card . I played pure gears with no vanities intentionally (was probably a huge mistake in hindsight).
  3. World Chalice Deck Discussion

    Hey OP i wanted to point out that in your opening statement you mention the wrong monster can be special summoned by emergency teleport. Also in your "Venus + Lee" you special summon world legacy - world chalice in steps (5) & (6) which would prevent it from getting its effect to special 2; it must be normal summoned/set to gain that effect. Otherwise it s an extremely good intro post. Also we get proxy dragon on august 25th for anyone trying to play this at YCS Toronto or YCS Rimini.

    Pacific when are your current players usually on i would like to get a match in if possible.

    @mark I really tried to make true draco work in this deck but the issue is that the true draco cards sort of function like pendulums in that you need a critical mass to be able to play through disruption otherwise they are total bricks. That's obviously why people are playing a minimalist engine. I personally played 1-2 mp, 2-3 dinomight knight, 2 return, and 1 apocalypse, to try and achieve the objective of being able to amass enough cards to make a play on my opponents turn and then keep rolling due to advantage from knight. The flip side is that in a tournament like WCQ with 11-12 rounds of swiss and 6 rounds of top cut the hands where you draw miss matched pieces will cost you too many matches. I don't think people aren't playing true draco from lack of trying. based on results and evidence both tcg and ocg when in similar formats (current and OCG January 17) there is a clearly defined trend of pure zoo just taking over larger and larger portions of the competition. For TCG it is clear that after the june list pure zoo are having larger representation in top cut. For OCG you can see their meta breakdown at http://roadoftheking.com/ and see the change in time week by week (10 reports in total). My friend made a graph of representation of pure zoo at EUROs WCQ which has some interesting takeaways. Its worth noting round 9 is first day of day 2 after cut and round 12 is top64.

    The entire shift has been away from true draco entirely because of the amount of bricks it has and the space the package takes up. its really easy to have just the s/t or mp without reasonable way to summon them especially with normal summon becoming more important. At a minimum you are looking at the following: 2 mp 3 diagram 1 return 1 heritage 3 terraforming (i guess this could be cut in super minimalist builds) I've seen people trying out tensu and the problem it suffers is that because of the number of monsters played it's highly likely you don't open with 2 monsters so even having the tensu does not fix your first normal summon getting stopped. I think at this point that anyone playing pure should be playing 2 shuffle's at a minimum, and all zoo decks should main soul charge.

    Obviously the big takeaway from Euro's is how to extend our plays through disruption this was seen mostly in the form of shuffle reborn and some more unorthodox choices like black garden and bunnyblast. some other cute extenders include wiseman's chalice and lullaby of obedience. Obviously the most ideal of cards for this shouldn't brick (brilliant fusion) or be too slow (traps), does anyone else have any tech cards that also accomplish making a push outside of normal summon or barrage?

    I find the most ironic thing about Billy being banned is that i overheard the KoA rep literally say that the motivation behind creating the worlds points was to get Billy to worlds...

    Has anyone actually tested BA zoo,? it sounds terrible in theory with the fact that you need to play a sufficient amount of them to draw together that you wouldn't be able to play key zoo cards needed. Secondly a lot of synergy off of BA is the ability to mill them which also doesn't synergize well with a zoo deck unless you are playing a ton of BA. Lastly you can't make a board of BA and zoo at the same time. That deck idea really seemed like bait to get people to make poor choices/ As for Metalfoes Zoo, the higher the concentration of pendulum cards the greater the consistency and synergy. There was a list going around from a player who tied a 1k cash tournament and his deck was pretty poorly constructed with 13 MF monsters and 47 cards in main deck, i know some people that tested it at a pretty soft locals and bricked super hard. In the new format much like the last we will see Pure Zoo, True Draco Zoo, and Kaiju Zoo. Even in this classification i think that true draco engines will now become larger to the extent that TDZ (true draco zoo) is now more like True Dracos with Zoo. Most people have realized that the small ( lvl 5-6) True Draco provide more consistency and utility than just playing 2-3 master peace. a lot of lists i have seen use 2-3 dinomight knight, 2 master peace, and 1 of Ignis or majestys maiden. I think the real question is what are people who play pure and kaiju zoo doing to fill up their monster slots as i have a lot of experience with not drawing any monsters/searchers at all with 10-16 monster lists. 1-3 whips 2 rat 1-2 ramram 1-3 thoroughblade 3 barrage 2-3 tenki
  14. The Sigirimi is Disqualified

    I have found that my team actually follows most of these rules which created the opposite effect where i wanted to play games for the war and contribute but we had too many active players. All in all though i do feel that this was a very positive experience and improved the activity on the site even if people did try to limit deck discussion to their own teams. I feel like an improvement would be to change the number of hearts based on the team size (of course maintaining a minimum number) of two teams warring, then angling has less of an effect if a larger portion of both teams are playing. As is, you can have 3 players play on a 10 person team and the other 7 don't get to contribute if you go 0-6.
