  2. [quote name='bapesta94' timestamp='1341438834' post='3224628']Why would you main 3 mst when they are awful against Chaos dragons? Side them if anything.. you dont need to main MSTs because you have Descendants.[/quote] i already have a good match up against dragons putting typhoons is isnt gonna make me lose against dragons. its the only deck where mst is bad. thats one deck where its bad and theres about 5 decks where its good. and descendant doesnt substitute mst
  3. [size=3]So on Monday night I leave southern California to drive all the way to clumbus, ohio. I have my deck ready and tested and im pretty confindent. I chose to run chaos dragon because I thought wind ups was gonna make a big appearance and its not hard for dragons to come back from getting looped. I arrive Wednesday and am very anxious for Saturday. I go to pre reg on Friday and on Saturday morning I cant be more than ready.[/size] [size=3]Round 1[/size] [size=3]Opponent’s deck: inzektors[/size] [size=3]Im able to 2-0 him by otk’ing him on my first turn twice. Didn’t even draw future fusion.[/size] [size=3]Round 2[/size] [size=3]Opponent’s deck: dino rabbit[/size] [size=3] I sit at table 4 so I go over to the feature match area and although Im not the feature match there [/size] [size=3] is a little paragraph about my duel on the konami website with the rest of the event coverage. [url="http://www.konami.com/yugioh/blog/?p=9801"]http://www.konami.co...oh/blog/?p=9801[/url][/size] [size=3] Round 3[/size] [size=3]O opponents deck: Gravekeeper’s[/size] [size=3]the worst match up I could possible get paired up against.[/size] [size=3]Game 1 is easily lost because of his necrovalley to my hand full of chaos monsters.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 is easily won because I take all 8000 of his life points with purely tour guide and sangan[/size] [size=3]Game 3 was pretty close but a surprise malefic cyber end gave him match.[/size] [size=3]Round 4[/size] [size=3]Opponents deck: wind ups[/size] [size=3]Game 1 I draw future fusion and he cant combat it.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 I draw future fusion but it doesn’t matter cuz he went first and was able to mst it. He loops me and I cant come back.[/size] [size=3]Game 3 was pretty close but he was able to take it. I was controlling the board with five headed, decree and darkflare but he was able to factory search and stall long enough for him to go tiras and I cant come back.[/size] [size=3]So after going 2-2 I can drop and try and recover through side events or I can try and win 5 rounds in a row to day 2 and decided to drop. I sold my dragon deck because I knew way before this event that I was only playing it for nats. Good thing I brought my gk deck because I was able to get some random cards I needed for it and on Sunday I decide to join the 2013 regional qualifier. I could really care less about the invite because im confident that I can get one at any given regional so I join just for the mat and deck box. It was a pretty fun regional and I was lucky enough to play meta decks because I wanted to see if gks can still compete.[/size] [size=3]Round 1[/size] [size=3]Opponents deck: inzektors[/size] [size=3]This guys build was a little abnormal for it ran main deck dfissure, snowmans, and reapers.[/size] [size=3]Game 1 my necrovalley plus mal stardust was able to stop him from making any plays.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 he sides decrees and was able to draw it turn 1. Lucky him. I was unable to draw and typhoons and I was locked down.[/size] [size=3]Game 3 was a grind game but I eventually made him waste his resources on my descendant + recruiter plays so I was able to resolve a game winning spy.[/size] [size=3]Round 2[/size] [size=3]Opponents deck: heros[/size] [size=3]The hero matchup, although is very good for me , has always scared me because for some reason Gemini spark scares the fuck out of me.[/size] [size=3]Game 1 we keep trading off traps to stop opposing monsters but my 13 monsters to his 7 is overwhelming and he runs out of resources.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 is a grind game as he has a shadow mirror and no monsters and I have traps but no monsters so at one point we both discarded an accumulated 6 cards during our end phase because we had too many cards in hand. Eventually im able to secure a thunder king on board and am able to beat him down.[/size] [size=3]Round 3[/size] [size=3]Opponents deck: dino rabbit[/size] [size=3]This was a true testament of the capability of gks in the current format because this was the scariest match up for me throughout the whole regional.[/size] [size=3]Game 1 I was able to royal tribute 2 rabbits and control the board with spy + traps.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 first turn laggia plus me drawing 4/13 monsters opening hand gives him the game.[/size] [size=3]Game 3 my first turn thunder king plus traps was able to keep him at bay and even with his successful storm for plus 2 my thunder king made him use his resources so my descendant + recruiter could get in there for game.[/size] [size=3]Round 4 final round[/size] [size=3]Opponent’s deck: chaos dragons[/size] [size=3]I couldn’t be happier for in the finals I get to play my best match up. I kept thinking to myself I got this regional in the bag.[/size] [size=3]Game 1 my necrovalley plus mal stardust was pretty devastating. At one point he had game when I had a set road, necrovalley and recruiter. He summoned lyla and destroyed my road and dropped dad but couldn’t banish to atk for game. On my turn I was able to dark hole and atk for game with searched commandant.[/size] [size=3]Game 2 he resolves a lyla and drops his hand which consisted of lightpulsar, darkflare, redmd, and dad[/size] [size=3]Game 3 I royal tribute his whole hand. Nuff said.[/size] [size=3]Funny story is before we started playing round 4 I offered to split because he kept saying how badly he wanted his invite and I just wanted the mat plus deck box and I was also somewhat scraed of getting lyla plus sacked and he just said let’s have a good game and he knew what I was playing and so after the match he said he should’ve took the split. So I offered him the win in exchange for the mat, deck box, and 12 dollars for the entrance fee and he agreed. I also pulled a rescue rabbit in my 3 entrance packs so it all turned out well.[/size] [size=3]Here’s the gk deck list:[/size] [size=3]Main deck total: 40[/size] [size=3]Monsters 13[/size] [size=3]3 spy[/size] [size=3]3 recruiters[/size] [size=3]3 descendants[/size] [size=3]3 commandants[/size] [size=3]1 malefic stardust dragon[/size] [size=3]Spells 15[/size] [size=3]3 necrovalley[/size] [size=3]3 pot of duality[/size] [size=3]3 mystical space typhoons (I really like main decking this card and I was no problem with it)[/size] [size=3]2 royal tributes[/size] [size=3]2 gk steles[/size] [size=3]1 dark hole[/size] [size=3]1 book of moon[/size] [size=3]Traps 12[/size] [size=3]2 warning[/size] [size=3]2 torrential[/size] [size=3]2 bottomless[/size] [size=3]2 prison[/size] [size=3]1 compulse[/size] [size=3]1 dark bribe (wanted to test this instead of second road)[/size] [size=3]1 road[/size] [size=3]1 judgment[/size] [size=3]Extra deck[/size] [size=3]1 catastor[/size] [size=3]1 android[/size] [size=3]1 scrap archfiend[/size] [size=3]1 black rose (couldn’t find anyone with arcanite)[/size] [size=3]1 scrap dragon[/size] [size=3]2 stardust dragon[/size] [size=3]1 zenmaines[/size] [size=3]1 leviathan[/size] [size=3]1 leviair[/size] [size=3]1 acid golem[/size] [size=3]1 utopia[/size] [size=3]1 photon butterfly assassin[/size] [size=3]1 gem knight pearl[/size] [size=3]1 maestroke[/size] [size=3]Side deck[/size] [size=3]2 thunder king[/size] [size=3]2 effect veiler[/size] [size=3]1 maxx c[/size] [size=3]1 jinzo (I saw 2 people with countdown.

You're going to be pressed to keep Valley on the field game 2 when your opponent has their 3rd MST and a Dust or two coming in, so that argument is irrelevant. I'd rather play Taker which outright takes care of the problem than have to bank on having a 2nd card to make Smashing relevant. [/quote] inzektors and heros arent what im expecting to play at nats and u act like smashing is just an outright horrbile card its not that bad its player preference [/quote] No, it's not player preference. Smashing started to lose luster when Heroes started gaining popularity, and now that Chaos Dragons are everywhere, Soul Taker is definitely the better choice. [/quote] heros arent going to be that popular at nats and necrovalley doesnt care if i smashing a lightpulsar

You just need the ability to keep Evolzars off the field and outgrind them, because you're using a deck that plays significantly more backrows and as long as you're trading them off, you should have more protection. [/quote] gale is really bad this format because he doesnt cut anything worth halving. last formats u had constant stardust and shiens but now theres nothing maybe a leviathan or something if your lucky. it also makes me commit cards to the extra that arent that good like armor master or armed wing. i dont like many cards at three and compulse is one of them they are only sub par against rabbit and against dragons its not that good. i dont even like running malefic stardust im only running cuz of lyla in dragons [/quote] if you don't want to main the gale side it or side plaguespreader for your final countdown matchup. tempest magician is crucial and you want access to it. [/quote] i dont consider fc a deck at nats[/quote] I am sorry but are you retarded? Fc will probably be one of the five biggest decks there. You think that the only decks you will play are chaos dragon and rabbit? What about last years nats where plants were so hyped. I played 9 rounds before I dropped and only played three plants. No matter how bpopular a deck is, in a format like this one with so many overpowered decks, you probably won't play a specific deck more than three or four times. Also if you don't main chains you are going to have trouble with zenmaines and lyla all day long. I am sorry if I am being rude but your logic just does not make much sense at all. [/quote] zenmaines isnt problamaticf to the deck just learn to conserve ur compulses til needed and for lyla thats y i play malefic stardust

  7. [quote name='Joker' timestamp='1340335445' post='3215108']Soul Taker is better than Smashing because it makes Pulsar and Shining miss timing. If you're that worried about Dino Rabbit, then main 2 Guard. Also, your fear of Macro is laughable when GKs side 2, if not 3, copies.[/quote] i know it makes those cards miss timing but necro doesnt care about lightpulsar and heros arent that relevant to the nats meta in my eye. also as to guard id rather run compulse but im not that worried. i tried out siding macro and it was ok but in the long run it hurt me. ive been playing gks for 2 years and i can assure you that removal cards like prison, d fissure, macro, or banisher hurt the deck

  11. [size=3]I have come to the conclusion that I will be playing gravekeepers for nats instead of the other contending deck which was chaos dragons. Ive updated the decklist so I can have a better match up against dino rabbit. So lets get started anything I forgot to add or any suggestions are welcomed.[/size] [size=3]Main deck total 40[/size] [size=3]Monsters 13[/size] [size=3]3 descendant[/size] [size=3]3 recruiter[/size] [size=3]3 commandant[/size] [size=3]3 spy[/size] [size=3]1 malefic stardust dragon[/size] [size=3]Spells 14[/size] [size=3]3 necrovalley[/size] [size=3]3 pot of duality[/size] [size=3]2 royal tribute[/size] [size=3]2 gravekeepers stele[/size] [size=3]2 typhoon[/size] [size=3]1 dark hole[/size] [size=3]1 book[/size] [size=3]Traps 13[/size] [size=3]2 solemn warning[/size] [size=3]2 bottomless[/size] [size=3]2 prison[/size] [size=3]2 torrential[/size] [size=3]2 compulse[/size] [size=3]1 road[/size] [size=3]1 bribe[/size] [size=3]1 solemn judgment[/size] [size=3]Extra deck[/size] [size=3]1 cat[/size] [size=3]1 android[/size] [size=3]1 scrap archfiend[/size] [size=3]1 arcanite[/size] [size=3]1 scrap dragon[/size] [size=3]2 stardust[/size] [size=3]1 leviair[/size] [size=3]1 acid golem[/size] [size=3]1 zenmaines[/size] [size=3]1 utopia[/size] [size=3]1 roach[/size] [size=3]1 photon butterfly assassin[/size] [size=3]1 pearl[/size] [size=3]1 maestroke[/size] [size=3]Side deck[/size] [size=3]2 thunder king[/size] [size=3]2 veiler[/size] [size=3]1 plague[/size] [size=3]1 tempest[/size] [size=3]1 maxx c[/size] [size=3]2 smashing ground[/size] [size=3]1 typhoon[/size] [size=3]1 heavy[/size] [size=3]1 chain whirlwind[/size] [size=3]1 dimensional prison[/size] [size=3]2 fiendish chain[/size]

  14. [quote name='byakk' timestamp='1340315661' post='3214863'] If you're going to play GK, make sure your Rabbit matchup is much more than 50% in your favor. If you can't beat Rabbit with GK, I'd consider Dragons. [/quote] my gks vs rabbit is like 60% in favor of them it would be 50/50 but laggia plus four backrow is hard for a slow deck like gks to combat
  15. [quote name='calculatinginsect00' timestamp='1340286981' post='3214516'] There is no way 60 percent of the decks will be dragon. Maybe about a quarter at best. Ummm... personally I believe running chaos dragon at this eveent is suicide considering how uncontrollable the mirror is. It kind of reminds me of last year how plants were. Personally I say make a really good gk list and go with that. Maybe take out one mst mained from gk (cause the only thing you want to really mst is drain) and a d prison and add two fiendish chain in. [/quote] ive been trying out fiendish chain ever since it was more easily accessible and i just dont like the card. its only good against inzektors and i already have a decent match up against them. the decks that i except to play is dragons and rabbit all day so id rather have prison and mst than fiendish chains. and also the mirror isnt that bad. darkflare is boss against the mirror and u pretty much otk asap cuz u know if u dont they will. i also have a pretty good side for the mirror so if i played dragons i wouldnt be scared of the mirror.
