  1. Blue-Eyes - Discussion

    3 Gameciel, the Sea Turtle Kaiju 3 Ghost Reaper & Winter Cherries 3 Koa'ki Meiru Drago 2 Dark Hole 1 Raigeki 1 Twin Twisters 2 Anti-Spell Fragrance This is what my current side board is using at the moment. Considering that my local meta consists of Blue-Eyes, Burning Abyss, Cyber Angels, Pendulum, and random children; is there anything that I should be running over my current options?
  2. I'm really digging your build, Sanjura. My question is, what was your side board like? That's the main element of where I keep hitting a wall with this deck as I learn it. How does one side with it? I've tried various builds that have topped this past weekend, but I look at their side decks and continuously think "how much or how little of the deck's engine comes out".
  3. Burning Abyss - Deck Discussion

    Allure of Darkness at two will be beneficial for those who are wanting to try to Malacoda build with Pre-Preparation of Rites when SHIV is released.
  4. Dueling Network

    I wouldn't mind going back to using YVD, that program wasn't too terrible in terms of interface and being capable of "I would like to do this play."  With enough of us on this site, I'm sure we can update it to include Xyz summons and the Pendulum mechanics.  The only frustrating thing would be manually updating each card that's not in the current database files, since I can't remember if it was YVD or another program that saved "cards" in a very awkward manner.
  5. Monarch Turbo x 2

    Simple answer Digbick.  PTSD.  Perhaps losing to Burning Abyss and Heroes in the past has left ninjuh with a terrible fear.
  6. Monarch Turbo x 2

    A "turbo" deck generally wants to achieve its goal or desired action as quickly and as efficiently as possible.  Hence why they run forty cards, the bare minimum, so the player can consistently perform said goal or desired action.  Upstart Goblin reduces the deck count to thirty-seven cards, to further increase the chances of a player drawing what they need to consistently perform the deck's goal or desired function.     If you truly were playing a "turbo" variation of the deck, wouldn't you be playing Reinforcement of the Army and Foolish Burial?  Tutoring Edea the Heavenly Squire seems like a solid idea, as it helps you achieve your deck's goal.  Foolish Burial also helps your deck, by being able to trigger recover effects of Edea the Heavenly Squire on command seems very useful.  Not to mention being able to use the take-back effect of Erebus the Underworld Monarch is also a good thing.
  7. Monarch - Deck Discussion

    For the mirror match as well as PePe, I've been siding Cursed Seal of the Forbidden Spell.  Hitting opposing valuable cards like Pantheism of the Monarchs means that they can no longer gain extra draws and searches, which ultimately means happy fun times for them as the game progresses.  It's also fun to remove The Monarchs Stormforth from the other side of the table, which again is very crippling.
  8. mermails post-bosh

    Because of Neptabyss, you want to abuse the Atlantean monsters as much as possible - not the Mermails.  If you try to build the deck like it used to be played, you will be run down by everything because it plays so very slowly.  Give this build a try, it placed within the top thirty-two at YCS Sydney.  You'll understand that the whole purpose is to swarm the field and deal as much damage as humanly possible.   1 Genex Controller 2 Atlantean Dragoons 3 Atlantean Heavy Infantry 3 Atlantean Marksman 1 Deep Sea Diva 3 Effect Veiler 3 Genex Undine 3 Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit 3 Maxx "C" 3 Mermails Abyssmegalo 1 Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord 3 Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince 1 Abyss-Scale of the Mizuchi 2 Dark Hole 2 Double Summon 3 Instant Fusion 1 One for One 1 Raigeki 1 Vanity's Emptiness   2 Elder Entity Norden 1 Black Rose Dragon 1 Herald of the Arc-Light 1 Hi-Speedroid Chanbara 1 Odd-Eyes Meteorburst Dragon 1 Tatsunoko 1 Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier 1 Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss 1 Abyss Dweller 1 Bahamut Shark 1 Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer 1 Mermail Abysstrite 1 Number 101: Silent Honor ARK 1 Sky Calvalry Centaurea
  9. Yosenju Deck

    Your deck does not special summon, there's literally no reason why you wouldn't play the maximum number of Pot of Duality.  Playing three copies of Upstart Goblin makes your deck thirty-seven cards instead of forty.  Again, there's literally no reason why you wouldn't play all three copies of Upstart Goblin if you're already using two.
  10. Train deck

  11. performage performapal

    You're absolutely right, Dolkka itself seems very situational - it was just a suggestion that came to mind from a first glance.
  12. performage performapal

    I'm really digging this list and happily look forward to testing it myself to help improve it or come up with ideas.  The only thing that immediately comes to mind is Dolkka, as on paper it looks like it would be a card that would be rather effective against Kozmo.
  13. ARG Atlantic City October 10-11

    The stream has been live and we're waiting for round two to start.  Round one consisted of Patrick Hoban playing Infernoid against Igknight HERO and taking a switch 2-0 victory.  Unfortunately Hoban isn't exactly stream friendly...  because we have to wait for another 15-20 minutes.   http://www.twitch.tv/arglive
  14. OCG Burning Abyss asking for help / advice

    Libic special summons any Burning Abyss monster with its effects negated, meaning it won't care if Flying "C" is on the board or not.  Since it's also level three, you can use it as Xyz material for Dante.  Alternatively, if you summoned Rubic with Libic, then you can just tune with Flying "C" for Virgil.  It's one method that the TCG deals with Flying "C", we also used to use Enemy Controller in the main deck to tribute it that way.  However, some of us main deck Majesty's and Vanity's Fiend and just tribute it.
  15. OCG Burning Abyss asking for help / advice

    1 Barbar, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 3 Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 2 Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 2 Fiend Rhino Warrior 3 Graff, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 1 Libic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 3 Maxx "C" 1 Rubic, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 3 Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss 1 Foolish Burial 1 Harpie's Feather Duster 1 Pot of Varice 1 Soul Charge 3 Breakthrough Skill 2 Fiend Griefing 2 Fire Lake of the Burning Abyss 3 Horn of Heaven 3 Skill Drain 1 Solemn Judgment 1 Solemn Warning 1 Vanity's Emptiness   1 Dante, Pilgrim of the Burning Abyss 1 Virgil, Rock Star of the Burning Abyss 3 Beatrice, the Eternal Lady 1 D/D/D Founding King Kali Yuga 3 Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss 1 Downerd Magician 1 Mechquipped Angineer 2 Number 30: Acid Golem 1 Number 47: Nightmare Shark 1 Stellarknight Constellar Diamond   If I lived in Japan and was playing in that particular metagame, I would would play with something like this.  For Monarch hate, I'd have built-in hate in the form of triple Skill Drain.  Of course, they'd also contribute against a handful of EmEm's plays as well.  Asides from using Xyz Universe to potentially summon Beatrice, you can also use it to summon Stellarknight Constellar Diamond when the opponent attempts to do battle with two Dante or Dante and a R3 friend.   Barbar and Libic are two cards that I'm not seeing utilized very much in the OCG.  In the late game, Barbar just throws damage around and makes Nightmare Shark a very threatening card.  Libic was the TCG's out to Flying "C", unless we either main deck'd or side deck'd Vanity's and Majesty's Fiend, by allowing us to summon any Burning Abyss monster to Xyz summon Dante, or synchro summon Virgil if we were to put Rubic onto the field. As for your side deck...  Stygian Dirge and Imperial Iron Wall are the only three cards that don't make a whole lot of sense in my mind.  Stygian Dirge is frustrating for a Burning Abyss player, but it's nothing they can't just Fire Lake and march on as if nothing happened.  As for Imperial Iron Wall, I immediately cannot think of what it would be used against.  Flying "C", for the mean time, should be used in your side deck until Burning Abyss has been around for a longer period of time.  Seeing how a lot of OCG players aren't fully used to the deck yet, it's incredibly irritating when you have a Flying "C" on your field and a hand full of monsters with no real way to use them.   #2cents   Hope this has been at least helpful to you.
