  1. I have high hopes for you, compa.
  2. Even if something like Obelisk the Tormentor becomes popular then answers to it will rise and from there people will just end up cutting it. The card wasn't successful in the OCG and I only saw it pop up a couple times where I spend the majority of time that I'm bored scouring OCG blogs. I don't know if this has been talked about yet, but even cards like Book of Eclipse are seeing play as a way to dodge around effect negation, beating hate cards like Evilswarm Ophion, Jowgen the Spiritualist, Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer, and whatever else a card like that is good for. In a cramped mirror board state with a ton of Number 11 Big Eye's, you can push one through with a Book of Eclipse just acting like a Book of Moon. It doesn't matter if their stuff goes down because you can just flip the dudes back up to activate their effects and retake control. You can even get double use out of something like a Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack. However, the point I'm trying to make isn't that Book of Eclipse is a good choice or should even be anywhere on your list, it's that there are a ton of outs to Obelisk the Tormentor that are already played and some that could very easily see play. You want to maximize the amount of cards that are just generally going to be good in a variety of situations or cause a practically unloseable game state; Obelisk the Tormentor does not seem like either of those.
  3. Any level one tuner and two Mecha Phantom Beast tokens, duelist.

Everyone from Cali makes fun of him lol [/quote] Who did you hear that from? I'm one of his closest friends and everyone from our area respects him as a person/player. [/quote] The people from Cali I hang out with *shrugs* lol idk him so I cant judge [/quote] You mean Twa and Navarro? Hahaha. [/quote] And Ellis Robby Oran Homam [/quote] Throw us under the bus harder please.

[/quote] [img]http://i.imgur.com/0E7ku.png[/img] This was my list.. In the main I'm debating about cutting offering for a 2nd salvage unsure though Offering won me several games The sideboard seemed pretty good I'll probably end up cutting the snowmen and deck devi for a 3rd maxx C and debunks Since a lot of people wonder what to play in the extra deck I feel mine is really strong (snowdust giant is a very strong card currently in my opinion better then that shark exceed getting a 2000 attacker Isn't really relevant in my opinion.... the only time I think the shark would be better is If you had a creature swap in hand randomly and decided to give them an acid golem with no materials [/quote] Nice job. Random questions: 1) How many times did you summoned Scrap and Mist Wurm? 2) Did you like Reborn? 3) Did you like Mirror Force? 4) Did you like PoA? 5) Why no Gorz? [/quote] 1) mist wurm twice scrap dragon once 2) of course reborn is great taking their bls is nice 3) force normally cleared 3 monsters it's been testing very well the mirror you have to play it a little smarter though 4) poa is live like turn 2 I loved it 5) no room trag is far better for this deck unless ur running like 15 traps (undine searches any monster in your deck practically summoning undine to search moulin discarding moulin to take Hyperion with trags effect is pretty fun [/quote] You mean pitching Megalos to take Hyperions, right? ;]
  6. [quote name='Love. Hate. Cherish.' timestamp='1347732744' post='3281515'] Considering adding foreign YCSes. Doing something like the following for people who have more tops out of North America: 8 (1) Robert Boyajian (1 YCS Win) instead of 7 Robert Boyajian (1 YCS Win) with no acknowledgement that they actually have 8. Shows that they have 8 total, but one was out of the country. The only tricky thing about this is where do we stop? We can't possibly add all the 100 person nationals from every year, but what about events like Euros that are 1000+ people? Any input? [/quote] As long as Guatemala is listed as a country that is part of North America, I do not think it should be counted as a foreign YCS.

  7. Unless I missed something, it seems like they messed up a few times in the video. Not that I am trying to berate them or anything, Dueling Days clearly puts more work into this game then a lot of us ever have. Regardless, the point of this post is that at around the 5:30ish he makes a Lavalval Chain to foolish an Archfiend where he could have added it to his hand at some point during the set-up combo earlier and discarded it for Launcher. After seeing that, I think there may be a few shortcuts that could have been taken to make the combo shorter.

  9. [quote name='Soul' timestamp='1346217625' post='3267137'] what i want to know, is who the fuck buys an already rolled joint? [/quote] Prerolled joints are pretty common in California.

  11. I lost to Wind-Ups and 2 Rabbit Mirrors. I would play this deck 1000 times over, but if you are playing somewhere that Acid Golem isn't legal the deck gets hindered severely.
  12. Monsters: 17 3 Sabersaurus 3 Kabazauls 3 Tour Guide from the Underworld 3 Rescue Rabbit 2 Beast King Barbaros 2 Card Car D 1 Sangan Spells: 10 2 Forbidden Lance 2 Mystical Space Typhoon 2 Soul Taker 1 Book of Moon 1 Monster Reborn 1 Dark Hole 1 Heavy Storm Traps: 13 3 Skill Drain 2 Torrential Tribute 2 Bottomless Traphole 2 Dimensional Prison 2 Solemn Warning 1 Solemn Judgment 1 Starlight Road Extra: 15 2 Evolzar Dolkka 2 Evolzar Laggia 1 Gem-Knight Pearl 1 Number 39: Utopia 1 Maestroke Symphony Djinn 1 Photon Papilloperative 1 Steelswarm Roach 1 Leviair the Sea Dragon 1 Number 17: Leviathan Dragon 1 Number 30: Acid Golem of Destruction 1 Temtempo Percussion Djinn 1 Wind-Up Zenmaines 1 Stardust Dragon Side: 15 3 Snowman Eater 3 Maxx "C" 2 Effect Veiler 1 Mystical Space Typhoon 2 Dust Tornado 2 Macro Cosmos 2 Spiritual Fire Art - Kurenai I don't really use DGZ too much, but earlier today my friend linked me to another thread here in the deck garage where some guy was getting destroyed for trying to convey how good Skill Drain is in the Rabbit deck. Although the list in the other thread I am referring to is playing a lot of subpar cards, his general points are correct that Skill Drain is a much better choice than Macro Cosmos; and it's really unfortunate that the general populous of DGZ are blinded so easily. You can't ignore the fact that Skill Drain plus a 3000 attack power monster is a solid lock vs Chaos Dragons. Whether you are going Guide into Golem or just sticking a Barbaros, all you need to do against the deck is draw the Skill Drain at basically any point in the game, regardless of the game state, and you can make a come back. It is also very clear that Skill Drain is better in the mirror and against Wind-Ups, while still being a complete shut-off switch vs Inzektors. Skill Drain is also typically better against the more "rogue" decks. Although I didn't do as well as I would have liked to at this NAWCQ, I am still very confident in that this is the best Rabbit variant given the format and it's unfortunate it was overlooked for so long. As for changes after the tournament I have these few notes: maining Maxx "C" seems necessary, Soul Taker could be cut to one because of how much better your match is vs Dragons and the fact that you usually don't need the extra removal, and an additional Typhoon seems worth a slot because of how low your monster count is. With this said I could see cutting one Soul Taker and possibly both Torrential Tributes to make room for those changes, but that is just a rough idea at this point.
  13. [quote name='DDSpade' timestamp='1340751542' post='3218453'] Leaving on thursday, konami booked us at the ramada...anyone going to be there that wants to test? The ipad tourney sounds good, but might hit up the water park that day [/quote] I'm actually pretty disappointed that they booked us at the Ramada 8 miles away; it seems like they could have done a lot better for the "champions".
  14. I don't really know why you like Huntmaster so much, Thrun is better than him against basically everything. Thrun takes over the whole game vs Delver and control, and against RG aggro having 4/4 regen is very significant. Whenever I have Huntmaster vs RG he just dies to removal that isn't supposed to be good vs me anyway. Thrun also survives through your board wipe spells, which leads me to question why you are playing pillars over whipflares? I think Geist of Saint Traft is much scarier to stare down than Strangleroot Geist, and RG is becoming less and less relevant. I also have absolutely no idea why you are not playing any number of Beast Within, it is basically the best removal in the format and an ultimate catch all.
