I have been trying to like brilliant fusion engine because everyone is telling me its the best way to play the deck. I was dead set on playing domain monarchs at my nats the constant whispering in my ear and the amount of top cut placings xyz is taking, it made me question what i was set on.
I have sat here fish bowling xyz monarch hands and the amount of times i have ended with a a monarch on board with a return and an unused pantheism in the graveyard came up quite a lot. In my head all i could think of is, that pantheism could be searching me a domain right now. Now i understand i will be making mistakes with the deck and i understand xyz is the 'stronger' way to go, but i just cant help the fact that it just doesn't click with me and domain monarchs do. (probably a contrast on the level of player i am more than anything else tbh)
My friend swears by hobans teleporter shitty thing and i stood there and watched him lose games because he draw the vanilla or he drew the ghost ogre and teleporter and that didn't sit well with me. I want to lose games because i played bad or they were the better player - not because i risked a big payload by playing such shit cards. Consistency is the most important thing for me. When i look at deck lists from events, how a deck performed in swiss interests me more than what won. Basically, i just want the most consistent build - but everyone has vastly varying ideas on what that actually is.
@TS FearlessIf you are not keen on the edea engine in the deck, what are you favouring over it? layers + multiple mithras? perhaps using terratops and borg like they have done in the ocg? i guess you don't like committing you normal summon to edea either?
