  1. Thanks for the advice and for those links. I will be looking into this a little more this weekend and will keep the thread updated.
  2. So I'm a pretty big noob when it comes to computers which is the reason I tend to use Mac products. My level of tech expertise is "workplace god" because I can use excel/word, change which printer is being used and know how to email files to myself. However my general knowledge would probably be laughable to most of you. A year or two ago I bought my brother's Mac when he was moving. My needs are pretty simple and I just like to have something that's reliable and won't get viruses. I tend to just work with things as they are, so I left most of what he had going on and just erased favourites and replaced them, etc. He had the Mac bootcamped, which to my understanding means the hard drive is split 50/50 amongst Windows/Mac software. I've been operating mostly on windows but have been running into some problems lately. There's a lot of things I feel like I should be able to do that aren't working. Things like moving videos/pictures from my computer to my phone, using iMovie, upgrading the software on the Mac side, upgrading iTunes on the windows side, playing Hearthstone on the Mac side and trying to install anything on the windows side. Little inconveniences that are adding up and limiting what I can do on the computer. I'm thinking what I should do is just start with a clean slate and have the computer be just a Mac with no windows bootcamp. I'm not exactly sure how I would go about this. I guess I would probably need to get the admin password from my brother too. My guess is that I would back up my files onto a CD or something and just restore system defaults on the computer? If I go down this road, what's the best thing to do? Do you think I"m wrong in wanting to do this? Things I use/would like to use the computer for: - streaming - basic web surfing (dgz, reddit, gmail, online banking, that sort of stuff) - cataloguing pictures/videos and being able to move them between apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac) and my wife's phone (usually samsung products) - making basic videos (mostly slide shows/compilations) - basic microsoft office stuff (I'm of the understanding I could buy this for Mac, or at worst export apple docs) - play hearthstone, use tracking software - tax filing And that's pretty much it. This has all just kind of come to a head right now as my wife uploaded all her baby pictures/videos to the computer and I'm trying to get one video from the computer to my phone to add to an iMovie show I'm making and I can't seem to get it done. It's frustrating and I really just want the computer to do some basic things that I feel should be achievable. Just wondering what everyone else's thoughts are? Thanks in advance for any help.
  3. I feel like the elemental build has potential. Rogue already has good anti-aggro spells and the elementals have some great anti-aggro power as you mentioned. You're able to get swarms of the 1/2 guy pretty easily and a 1 mana elemental allows you to kickstart combos or gives you an elemental played for the next turn effects. I'll definitely experiment more with it and create a new thread for the deck next time I have some comments.
  4. Why no Patches? I tried out the engineer/shadowcaster list posted on reddit on my way to work this morning and it seemed alright. I'm playing in the 20's though since I stopped playing last format. I'll try out your list and compare. I've heard the list from reddit fares poorly against other aggro decks. How does this one do vs aggro? Edit: just realized your list only has 26 cards (and no caverns lol.) You also mention others use the boar/engineer engine but so do you? Very confusing.
  5. I've spent somewhere around 3000 white keys on lvl 40 Kaiba using Yugi with good farm decks (cats ear earlier, life gain now) and haven't got a single controller. I don't think it has anything to do with rivals. I think it was just a coincidence for you.

  7. Not really dead in the mirror since you can snipe the hunting grounds if you want. Just make sure to have each field spell kill itself.
  8. Conversely... gf: Grimey you seem distant, are we OK? Grimey: ...yeah, I just still don't have Harpie's Hunting Ground...
  9. I find white magical hat and the 1300/1800 fiend interesting
  10. Thunder Dragon is also very good against Weevil. Being able to tribute monsters that have been Masked or the Parasite is important. You can also sack things that were stolen via Econ which can be relevant against any deck. I like it a lot more in Relinquished builds where the discard fodder is useful than decks where you're using it just to make your Switcheroo a +1 with 1 dead card in deck. It's usefulness with Skull Lair cannot be underestimated.
  11. Harpies also got Harpie Lady 1 which is a big deal. In addition to being an 1800 normal summon and pumping your other dudes which is just good in general, Elegant Egotist builds now have Harpie Lady 1 + Harpie Lady Sisters for over 4000 atk if the field spell remains intact. Egotist builds are a lot more consistent with Birdface. It remains to be seen what the best build of Harpie's ends up being. Since KC Cup I've been a big fan of playing Ladybug and Possessed Dark Soul and have worked them into a Harpie's list. I've got 2 builds right now, one with Relinquished and one with Egotist, which I plan on playing at higher ranks where I expect more Harpies. The "meta" (although expensive) list I've seen is: 3 Birdface 3 Sonic Duck 2 Harpie Lady 1 Harpie Lady 1 1 Harpie Lady Sisters 2 Elegant Egotist 3 Enemy Controller 2 Order to Charge 3 Mirror Wall
  12. I was on vacation and literally stopped into a hard rock cafe to grab wifi and collect my rewards. Didn't check dgz or screencap my results. Finished 10* at around 355 rank or something like that on NA with about 10750 points. Currently haven't played any ranked since returning. Obviously hit KoG multiple times prior. Added your tag. Should I remove the mark_dgz one?
  13. I have not tried Storm. I've been blown out by it once by a Relinquished deck. Kinda feels win-more though. I'm usually in a commanding position when Relinquished gets to use it's effect. I've used my own Harpie's to steal monsters a couple times. I haven't had any trouble with Element Saurus because I haven't faced many Dinos since making the switch. Seems like everyone at these ranks has dropped Dinos. I have outs to the Saurus in the form of Half Shut, Mirror Wall, Windstorm of Etaqua and Sphere Kuriboh though. I can also proactively present problems with Relinquished and Harpies Hunting Ground. Many dino's I've seen are playing Jerry Beans to get around the Ladybug as well, so I have potential blowout plays by stealing that. I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow morning so I probably won't make LV12. Tomorrow I'm staying at a hotel in Florida before going on a cruise Sunday. So I might have a chance to play some on the wifi at the hotel tomorrow night. Definitely not paying for the wifi on the cruise though. Chose the free alcohol perk instead. Can't say I regret the choice. Best of luck to everyone on the climb though. I feel like I should comfortably hit top 1000 which was my primary goal anyways. Definitely feel I could've hit top 100 with the way this deck feels. Too bad I didn't discover it sooner. Starlight if you like the patient approach you might like this build if you've got the cards.
  14. Yeah cutting Flash Assailant seems necessary right now. I played the list based off yours for a while and started off hot, then lost like 5 in a row or something before switching back to a deck with 3 OtC. I had a bit more success with that and climbed to 8* before trying something new. And holy shit has it been awesome. By "something new" I mean that I hadn't played yet. Everyone knows of Harpies Relinquished already, but this sauce I whipped up has gone 16-2 since I started playing it and am currently on a 12 game win streak. Currently 10* and rank 357 with 10046 bp on NA: Harpies Hunting Ground 2 Relinquished 1 Sonic Bird 2 Senju of the Thousand Hands 1 Sphere Kuriboh 1 Yomi Ship 2 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom 1 Harpie Lady 3 1 Harpie Lady 2 2 Possessed Dark Soul 1 Half Shut 1 Twister 2 Black Illusion Ritual 1 Embodiment of Apophis 1 Mirror Wall 1 Windstorm of Etaqua I would play a 2nd Sonic Bird if I had it. That card's nuts in the mirror. You just summon an 1800, search your ritual spell and pass. Puts em in a tough spot if they don't have one of their own or the vanilla winged beast. Possessed Dark Soul has been fucking huge. One of the best things it's countered has been Possessed Dark Soul. I'll take that Relinquished back, thank you very much. I also set the Ladybug and am like I'll either a) 2 for 1 my opponent if he summons another level 4, b) have an empty field to attack into next turn if he doesn't summon/set, or c) steal whatever he summons. Half Shut is huge in this deck. Protect Relinquished, play around Element Saurus or Harpie Lady 2, save my monster without killing their Jerry Beans so I can steal it. So many applications. Also found out today if I have a Harpie Lady up my opponent can Elegant Egotist. Almost got my shit pushed in that way.
  15. Thanks for posting your list. I don't have 2nd Mirror Wall so I've replaced it with 3rd Metalmorph and I do have 3 Twisters so running all 3 instead of De-Spell. I can definitely see why this list works. I think it could get blown out by LDD but I don't see water anymore. Straight Flush would also screw me pretty hard a lot of the time but I pretty much play hoping not to see it. Another counter to this list would be to run something like 3 ladybug 3 Yomi Ship with the Relinquished package and basically run you out of monsters. People haven't really caught on to a strategy like that though. I have 3 Flash Assailant as well (just bought the third recently since I figure I'll be winning mad coins anyways.) I'm thinking if there's a deck that makes sense dropping the Dino package.
