      That's why you die if you jump off a building; all your energy went into the fall Kappa

  2. Burning Abyss - Deck Discussion

      If the Monarch is my only out to Emptiness at that moment, I don't want my opponent getting it back. In addition, there seems to be a lot of Lightsworn holdouts in my area, and I'd rather banish lights/JD.   Also burning for 1k is sometimes relevant.

    I main Caius and board another + Majesty's Fiends to get around this.

I quickly found out that people were using Prisma. Unfortunately, I also quickly found out that The Eye of Timaeus was godawful. Thankfully, Dragon's Mirror is around to pick up the slack. I chose not to play the Dragon Rulers due to possible banlist speculations and also because I don't find them to be particularly good card design.   The deck desperately wants to do something when it's not making power plays with its arsenal of fusions, so a set of Hands and Maidens(and, by extention, Blue-Eyes) were added to hold the fort for a while. Playing the Maiden/Blue-Eyes tandem opened the door to playing White Stone, which has naturally synergy with DMG Knight, Phoenix Wing Wind Blast, and Super Poly. The Hands being Fire/Water also play quite nicely with Miracle Fusion, giving us a quick Nova Master/Abs0.  All this helps load the yard for Miracle/Mirror. It should be noted that Maiden is a spellcaster and can be recurred with Amulet Dragon's death ability.   Some choices explained: 3 Phoenix Wing Wind Blasts are included to make use of any stray BEWD/DM/DMG that wander into the hand, though I can see a case for making a 2/2 split with Super Poly. Blue-Eyes Ultimate in the extra helps dump dragons into the grave via Prisma. Dark Magic Attack is in for the surprise factor in game 1. Much like Sabers' Hyunlei, it preys upon people who still set every spell/trap simply because Heavy isn't currently legal. I would almost always side them out for something else postboard.   Thanks go to Sharpman. I drew upon your list somewhat for inspiration.

    For what format?

    http://burnforfive.wordpress.com/ Probably the best WS blog in existence. Was present for the events discussed in the most recent article. Made easy money on bets + bought the foil Tsukasa pictured.

      Personally, I don't think many(if any) of the pricey cards in Bakemono will be replaced. Level 3 Senjo is going to be hard-pressed to be replaced as the premiere level 3 in that deck and you're probably going to want the full playset because it's in red. Level 1 Hanekawa could possibly be unseated. The rest of the cards are 5 or less USD. Maybe Hachikuji suicider is up? I haven't checked yuyutei in a while.   I went to Desu Nation's regional and did pretty poorly. Went 2-3 before round 6 and dropped before final round(along with other people) to try to get people I knew(who were also 2-3) who really wanted to top into top 16. Fell victim to goldfishing hands being good -> actual hands being terrible and gate-is-always-on-the-bottom.   BUT THAT ASIDE, regional sucked large amounts of dick and was handled exceedingly poorly. And I know bad tournaments. I played Yugioh. They forced a round 0 to even get into the tournament for late signups(even if you preregistered) when they were at 41 people. My friend tried to drop so 13 other people wouldn't have to risk anything in round 0, but they told him no(doing so would have saved everyone 2 hours). So round 0 starts and 3 shop regulars come in and Terry(store owner) lets them in for whatever reason and they have to re-pair. Then they tell him they had registered and they have to pair AGAIN. So some people in our group basically threw away a whole day when they lost in round 0. I took the most standard Angel Beats deck possible, beat some store regulars and dropped after round 5 to destroy tie breakers and help other X-3's into top 16. I then had chicken curry at a Chinese cafe at midnight, hung out at Kira Kira for till 4am, crashed for 14 hours, and regretted nothing.

    Bow isn't immediately powerful in the way that noncreature spells in Melira Pod have to be(TS, IOK, Chord, Pod, Abrupt Decay). I wouldn't run it at all.

    Any Melira Pod players here testing Archangel + Feeder? I'm not sure how I like it. On the one hand, Archangel can win the game on her own against Jund and other "fair" decks and has obvious synergy with Finks. Feeder can reset a used Persist creature and is a "free" pod chain link if you're going for value. On the other, it feels a little win-more, Archangel makes the curve very topheavy, and Spike Feeder is absolute ass without Pod up and running(or a Persist dude to reset).

    No. Encore step changers(there are different kinds of changers) always say "at the beginning of encore step". Once you've encored something, you are no longer at the beginning of the step. And even if you could, the minus to stock and/or hand at that point probably makes the change not worth it.   Yes, trial decks are a good way to get into the game. Buy 2 of whatever trial deck, though, as you're going to want to have playsets of all the good cards(sometimes 4 is needed as some have good 1-ofs, but at that point it's really not worth it money-wise). A lot of decks from booster packs can be built for <$100, though.

      I think Shana is pretty midtier. Its lategame is strong, but its level 1 is so underwhelming. I'd say Rewrite, Disgaea, AB!, DC, ZnT. If Milky Holmes had a brainstormer or had Cordelia's Flower Garden back, then probably T5 material.

    Got my foil 3/2 Yuris from the booster today. So nice looking :)

    Everyone at my local is bracing for the onslaught of English SAO. Worst part is, it's actually a solid set. Rebuilt my Angel Beats deck just for that. Level 3 Silica is ridiculous.   If I had to build SAO, it would be something like this:   3 - 7 4x Silica 3x Asuna   2 - 6 3x 2/1 Asuna 3x 2/1 Lizbeth support   1 - 12 2x 1/1 Counter 2x 1/0 Counter 5x some mix of 1/1 and 1/0 Asunas 4x 1/0 Lizbeth     0 - 16 3x Searcher 2x Brainstorm 4x Suicider 7x stuff   CX - 8 4x Gate 4x 2k1 w/ l3 Silica
