    Hi, my name is Glen.  i hav been using this deck for a while now and i think its very good. but i sometimes draw into dead hands with multiple big monsters which is why i added a few cards to the deck, so i woulden't draw all my big guys at once . I am looking for advice as i have not played this game since 2008 until now. however do not ask me to take out dark magician or blue eyes as they are my two favourite and oldest cards and have been in every deck i ever played! Keep it clean guys, I'm all about positivity and constructive feedback. http://i.imgur.com/7x5Zyhu.png  
  2. UK Nationals 2014 - 47th Place w/Raccoons     Backstory:   Boy meets Spellbooks. Boy plays Spellbooks. Boy tests and refines Spellbooks. Boy (after accurately analysing the meta) selects Spellbooks for Nats. Soul Charge gets released and Spellbooks become much bad. Boy says "Fuck it, lets play Raccoons, that'll be a laugh" --------------------------- Pre-Tournament:   I tell people I'm playing Raccoons and expect to go 0-3 drop, so I can play side events and trade all day, but everyone says its a waste of a trip, and just to play Spellbooks anyway, but by this point my mind has been firmly set on making shenanigans happen and making an impact at my 1st Nats, so my real decision is whether or not to sleeve up Raccoons or Gishki FTK. I decided I wanted to be remembered as the "cool guy who played Raccoons" over the "%@!#£ £@#"! who played this £&**^"@# pile of @£"&^!% degenerate £!@#&" so I eventually settled on Raccoons.   The rest of my group (Team Fancy Farm) was playing Geargia (Andy Thompson - Top 32), Mermail, Infernity, Spellbooks, Chain Burn, Fire King, which to an extent were all actually real decks, on the morning of the tournament we all made some ridiculous forfeit rule, where the person who scrubs the hardest has to do something ridiculous, naturally everyone looks at me playing the Ponpoko.dek, and assumes they're safe, WRONG MOVE BITCHEZ.   But anyway, we go down the day before, on the Friday, we make the journey from Glasgow > Birmingham by coach, and entertain the rest of the coach with our ridiculous bants for seven hours (and I quote "Can you guys stay on to Bristol? You guys have made this journey amazing!) - so we arrive in Birmingham and we're like, well English people are really strange, because all we did was talk about Llamas with Hats and dead relatives.   We check out the City Centre, and head to the hotel to do some late-night testing, where I actually try to apply theory-oh to the Raccoon deck. It works fairly well, I mostly finalise the side deck, because I figured that I could just hope to open Obedience + 5 good purple cards and I might win a match.   On Saturday Morning we register, I sleeve up in Pink PC sleeves, and decide to try and look as professional as possible to maybe psyche out a win, turns out I forgot my hand-drawn Raccoon Mat, so I decided to stuff this idea, I played all of the tournament with no mat, and decided the opposite may be better, let opponents assume I'm a scrube.   I will take a bit of time to mention that although my last report was hilariously trollsy, this is 100% serious, I'm legit not making up the plays that happened, there was much salt to be had (see R3, Game 3) ------------------------------   Tournament:   They are doing this cool online pairings system, so instead of flocking over with the crowd to the paper pairings, we were able to chill out and just access them via Mobile. Pairings go up for R1, we perform the Team Fancy Farm ritual and charge the English I mean start the tournament. -------------------- Round 1 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs John (Noble Knights) - Lost Dice Roll   Guy was a pleasure to play against, really friendly guy from South Shields area.   G1 - He performs standard Noble Knight shenanigans on a level I could only dream of, and I lose fairly quickly.   G2, I set up my sick combo from my sick combo.dek, I open Obedience Schooled & Barbaros, get Elephun + 2 Beasts, normal Barbaros, overlay 2 Beasts for Sandayu, sync Elephun + Barbaros for a Leo, and then Sandayu brings me a 3100 Token. The game was pretty soon over.   G3 - I open double Veiler, I Veiler his T1 Medraut, play around the backrow, make a Sandayu, run over the Medraut. He then clears my backrow, Foolishes into Artorigus, summons Lady, brings back Artorigus, makes the Synchro, I Veiler, and then proceed to run him over with raccoon shenanigans*   *If at any point I mention Raccoon shenanigans it was probably involving something like Tantan > Kalantosa into Sandayu or some other thing, because all the raccoon shenangians kind of run into one another!   1-0 ---------------------- Round 2 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Stuart (Mermails) - Lost Dice Roll   Looking back on this match, another guy who was a pleasure to play.   G1 - I'm pretty sure I just get steamrolled, I think he opens something along the lines of Dracossack/Lavalval Chain with the floating Tidal, which was just too much pressure for me to deal with, I'm pretty sure I scoop this one without revealing my deck.   G2 - I'm pretty sure I open Ponpoko/Tantan (fun fact- didn't see Obedience in any of my first 2 matches) or something similar, the game turns into a huge grind, I'm sure I try to play Unicore control in this game for a bit. It gets to the stage where I Maxx C a push, and realise I can simplify the gamestate with my purple cards. He ends his turn with 1 in hand + Controller, and I draw to 3 and I grind out the win with another Ponpoko eventually establishing another Sandayu.    G3 - As I'm shuffling my deck after siding for G3, I notice only 39 cards, and only 15 in the sideboard. I don't present my deck illegally, but we call a judge anyway to explain the situation. Turns out Players Choice get really sticky and a card was hiding on the back of another card. But regardless, because of this, we were starting Game 3 with about a minute left on the clock. I'm fairly sure that he doesn't do much on his turn, sets 1 back and quickly passes. I just let time get called on my turn, I Ponpoko/Tantan, set 2 backs and pass. I chain my in-hand MST to his Sphere, and its his turn. He goes Teus pitch Infantry, I Debunk his Teus, he pops Ponpoko. He goes Teus pitch Turge, I Maxx C, I think he summons Tidal from hand and makes Big Eye (or some other way of making it) He tries to take my F/D Tantan but I Fiendish. He sets the Linde he searched with Teus leaving him with 0 in hand I think. He passes, I flip Tantan, get Kalantosa, pop the Linde, and he grabs Leed. I normal Wind-Up Kitten, make Sandayu, get a 2700 Token, Kitten bounces the Big Eye, then I Soul Charge for the Beast I detached, make a 2nd Sandayu, and another 2700 Token and pass. He draws nothing, and I run over his monsters and kill him in T4 of time.   2-0 ---------------------- Round 3 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Sheldon (Bujin) - Lost Dice Roll   I'm getting higher up the tables now and I've been having the most fun ever with Raccoons, this guy was also fairly pleasant (this was a recurring theme) and when I revealed my deck he told me I must have "big nuts to play a deck like this at Nats" so that was nice. However, on the Sunday this was the guy who was involved in the confrontation/fight, so maybe Raccoons pushed him over the edge :D   G1 - He does standard Bujin things with Kaiser Colosseums and I can do virtually nothing. The game was over fairly quickly since I'm not playing a real deck.   G2 - I fire off an early Naturia Beast and just camp like a professional. I eventually draw another play before he draws an out to the Beast + some backrow and I Tantan/Kalantosa > Sandayu and win.   G3  - He opens fairly well against my deck with double Kaiser, backrow etc, but I'm ahead of the curve and Creature Swap his Yamato, and sit on it beating him down for about 10 turns as he fails to draw an out. He eventually clears my Yamato, he makes a guy and turn after sets a card presumably so he doesn't lose to Creature Swap. This nullifies his Kaisers which means I grind a foothold into the game again (its almost as if I'm playing a real deck) - we go into time and I'm at 5K after a few Soul Charge plays (now cleared) and he's at 2K, on T2 of time I make Gachi and stall against his Mikazuchi and a set Monster (been there forever) - on T3 he tops a monster, and makes a Heartlandraco with Decree already up (and Kaisers) - he hits me for 2K and passes. On my last turn of time, I  realise my only hope is to use Creature Swap I'd been saving, so I turn my 700 Gachi to ATK, and hit his set monsters which was Maxx C (I knew it!) - during MP2 I Creature Swap for his Heartlandraco and end. He had a set Bujincarnation but it wasn't enough and he offered the handshake   Note - Silliest way I won all day, there wasn't even any salt, it was all just disbelief with most of my opponents.   3-0 ------------------------ Round 4 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Matt (Geargia) - Lost Dice Roll - AGAAAIN   So I'm on Table 3 for this game, and at this point I'm getting tons of people spectating during my games because Raccoons are on the top tables, I had a few people ask about my build as well, so I was the local hero/celebrity as I'd always wished I could be since I was a little girl.   Opponent in this round went on to T16, caught up with him after the tourney, was also friendly.   G1 - He does Geargia things like setting Armor, but he doesn't have the Geargiagear so I live for a bit to play mad things like Ponpoko + Tantan. After we grind it out for a while, I resolve a huge missing the timing Torrential, and capitalise on it with an Obedience Schooled I drew on T3. I think I make Unicore and something else. Most of the Geargias are in the grave at this point, opponent is forced to keep recycling Accel, but is going nowhere He scoops with 16 minutes on the clock after somehow managing to make an Emeral which gets Bottomlessed.   G2 - This time it was Armor + Geargiagear if I remember correctly, my life counter shows I took lots of little hits, so I imagine I just got out-resourced this game, since its Raccoons.   G3 - I'm pretty sure we have a few minutes until time, we play really quickly to one another, I make a Unicore early on and it takes a while for him to clear it after Exciton gets Chained I think (details blurry as always) - I grind out with Tantans and Sandayus, and as we go into time I'm able to establish a Double Sandayu while I'm on higher life. Next turn he doesn't play a monster, so  turn everything to ATK and hit for 4K, and he couldn't come back from that.   After the game, I offered to tell is friends I was playing Dragons, but he said he would man up and tell them he lost to Raccoon shenanigans, I was a proud man.   4-0 ----------------------- Round 5 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Alexander Reed-Lofts (Bujin) - Lost Dice Roll    Another fairly friendly guy, he ended up coming Top 8, losing to my good friend David Stephen (Harpies) in the Top 8 Feature.   G1 - He opens standard Bujin things which is along the lines of Yamato + send Hare/turtle add Crane, Colosseum/backrow, and I can never establish any control, I geat beat down fairly straightforwardly.   G2 - I do get to go first this game, but my deck doesn't really get anything going, I believe I open very little backrow this game, I do grind with the Bujins for a little while, but the game was fairly easily taken by the Bujins.   My deck did draw kinda bad with stuff like Kalantosa/Ceburrel and no side cards, but I expected it to draw a lot worse than it actually did, so I can't complain :)   4-1 --------------------------- Round 6 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Hari Gardener (Hieratic Ruler) - Win Dice Roll (Woohoo!)   The guy was fairly quiet, but when I caught up with him after the match he was friendly, he made either T8 or T16, so went on and did very well in the tournament.   G1 - I go first, I think I either open Obedience or a Ponpoko/Tantan, and do some Raccoon shenanigans. These games all seem fairly similar to one another. He opens enough to make some combo plays, I believe he Esets into the Su, he brings out a Flamvell Guard to make the Black Rose and I Fiendish. At some point in the game (next turn?) I think he makes a field of Atum + something under Maxx "C", on the following turn I Soul Charge for 4, and sack 3 of them for Barbaros to nuke his field, he has no outs and we go to G2.   G2 - I remember this game being fairly quick, he makes an Atum play and I Veiler. I'm forced to deal with the Atum and have to play aggro, I try to make a Sandayu and his backrow is the PWWB. Next turn I should've died, as I had a clear board, and he had Atum Atum Blaster Tempest (0/0), which translates into a ton of potential kill boards, but instead, he makes Draco + Gaia + Atum + 2 Tokens, and only hits for 5200. I don't draw a follow-up play however and can't break the board so I lose.   G3 - My deck does what it was supposed to do all tournament and I draw almost unplayable, I set Tantan and MST + a bluff, but he opens a couple of Hieratics and combos off with relative ease to take the match.   Bad hand in G3, but it happens, after this match I was now on the bubble, and with Raccoons so anyone I beat from now on would be knocked out on the bubble to Raccoons which in a way made this whole situation hilarious. I needed to win the next 3 rounds to Top 32, as no-one under X-2 would make it.   4-2 ------------------------------ Round 7 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Charlie? (Spellbooks) - Lose Dice Roll   Opponent was bouncing to the table, had a bit of banter, something felt a little off, but was overall an okay duel.   G1 - I lose the dice roll, and he sets up with Blue Boy + Priestess + Fate for 3 + Tower. I open my own power play of Obedience Schooled, and I know the game effectively comes down to my blint MSt on T1. He revealed a Wisdom for Master, so I know the 2 f/d are Fate + Wisdom. I calculate out the game, and realise I lose if I don't hit the Fate and try to make a play, so I make the read on where Fate is and blind MST it. He chains it to book his Magician, but now the board is free for me to make double Sandayu and clear his monsters. On the following turn he tries to get back into the game, but my board has created too much pressure to deal with. He Lifes back a Priestess, but I have the Chain + the Book of Moon to deal with it and win the turn after.   G2 - He goes first and starts with Blue Boy + Tower and a couple of backs. I open pretty much complete jank, at one point I have to normal summon Elephun to try and crash with his Blue Boy, he Book of Moons it anyway and just generates far too much advantage. I could stall out the game for longer, but I scoop fairly early on because I wasn't breaking his board.   G3 - I open what can only be described as the complete and ultimate RACCOON SHENANIGANS. I open Obedience Schooled + Masked Chameleon + Soul Charge which means I just win the duel. I Obedience into 3 Beasts, I normal Masked Chameleon. Make Sandayu with 2 Beasts, then sync for Naturia Beast with Chameleon + Token. I then Soul Charge 2 Beasts + Chameleon back from the graveyard, make a 2nd Sandayu, and then sync with Chameleon + Token #2 for a 2nd Naturia Beast. Final Board = Naturia Beast, Naturia Beast, Sandayu, Sandayu.  I set MST + something else. He actually opens potential outs to the baord and opens 2x Fiendish + Black Horn + another back. I have the MST for one of the chains, and win after a couple of turns though.   There was an issue during this game where my opponent called a judge because my Pink PC sleeves were curving my cards. The judge said it was most likely a factory defect and it was just a warning, but to re-sleeve after the round, so it all got resolved fairly easily. That was just the sickest opening I had all tournament, especially on the bubble.   5-2 ---------------------- Round 8 - Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Luke Laddow (Mermail) - Win Dice Roll   This guy was awesome, another friendly opponent, and he seemed the most relaxed out of anyone I played against.   G1 - I win the dice roll, and I open Ponpoko into Tantan, and set a couple of backrow. He just sets 3 backrow for his turn and passes back to me. I flip Tantan into Elephun and he Maxx "C"s me. I decide to make a raccoon shenanigan decision and sync for a Naturia Barkion into his 3 backrow. It resolves and I hit for 2500 before setting another back and passing. He draws for turn, only sets a monster and passes. During the EP, I sense an opening, Burst Rebirth for a Tantan, during my turn I flip Tantan into Wind-Up Kitten, Kitten bounces his monster, I make Sandayu, and a 2500 token and attack for game on T3 of the duel.   G2 - I have no idea what this guy is playing, but I put him on maybe bricked Geargia because I saw MST + Maxx "C" + lots of backrow, or I put him on some rogue like Constellar/Evilswarm. I side in an extra Dust Tornado, and the 2nd Black Horn. He wins the dice roll, and reveals to me he's playing Mermail! I mis-sided like a complete boss, but I figured I had to make that choice, I sided out Maxx "C"s and he goes off with the absolute nuts combo, using most of his hand to make Lavalval Chain + Angineer + Abyssgaios with a floating Tidal and double backrow. I think I try to summon a Ponpoko, but I just get completely steamrolled, on to game 3!   G3 - I'm fairly sure this game was very very very close, it was a huge grind! We get to mid-game and I've used most of my Beasts, I force him to use his MST on something like my Fiendish Chain to protect his board then I'm able to sit on Macro for about 4-5 turns to build my advantage back up. I use the last of my Beasts (my only monsters left are 1 Ponpoko and Soul Charges after this) to make a Barkion and thankfully with several of my own backrow the Barkion gets me there (possibly in time?) as he's forced to just keep setting guys. I think the game goes to time, I'm ahead in life, and he's froced to try to make -1 plays with Teus which my backrow deals with, and I win!   After this game I'm stunned into silence, personally the worst matchup this deck has is Mermail and I beat 2 of them (one without drawing Obedience) - like everyone else my opponent took the loss well, to be fair not many of my opponents were salty (to my face anyway) and when they realised they lost to Raccoons it was more disbelief than actual legitimate frustration.   6-2 ------------------ Round 9 Ryan Cook (Raccoons) vs Matt (Mermail) - Lost Dice Roll   Another mermail! I was sitting amongst the bubble tables, I could've gotten Gears, or Chain Burn, or other more favourable matchups, but the YGO gods had enough of the raccoon hilarity, and eradicated my little cuties. My opponent was someone I was next to for a few rounds earlier in the day, he was just in love with the fact I was playing Raccoons like so many others were.   G1 - I knew what my opponent was playing, but he won the dice roll and went first anyway. He opens fairly well, makes Bahamut Shark + Trite. I try to grind round his board, I save my MST for his Sphere, but he Warnings my Obedience Schooled which takes away my out to his field. He gains advantage over the next few turns gradually and I grind the game out.   G2 - I open pretty mediocre again actually, but I do have Macro. I set MST + Macro, and go Ponpoko + set Tantan. He draws for turn, thinks about his play then blind MSTs my MST (this is in G2, when obv I'll side in Macro/Soul Drain) I chain Macro and he dies a little inside. With no more outs to Macro the game was a lot harder for him, he is able to try to make a R4 play to grind the game out, but my hand gradually gets better, and my Raccoon shenanigans were far too much to handle.   G3 - I look at my opening hand and see no maxx "C" - I would give anything for my opponent to open complete jank, but unfortunately he openes Mermail combo god like real decks actually do, he makes a huge board T1, and my play consists of  a set Tantan and some backrow. He grinds through my backrow, then OTKs me on his 3rd turn with Megalo + Diva.   6-3 ------------------------------ Post-Tournament:   So my wave of momentum came crashing down, all in all I finished 47th place as the highest X-3 which shows how hard all of my matchups legitimately were. A lot of my opponents went on to Top 32 at least.   Despite being knocked out on the bubble, this tournament was legitimately the most fun I've ever had at a tourney, it was my 1st Nats, and I solely intented to just troll one or two people with the deck, but it turned into a tournament sensation.    What made the day worthwhile was the sheer disbelief on people's faces at 3 key points during the match:   - Discovering I'm playing Raccoons (known as the humungous cheesy grin) - Picking up Ponpoko and reading it (known as the shenanigan wtf face) - Losing to Raccoons (and getting knocked out on the bubble) (known as the omg i have to tell my friends i lost to this deck and i'm going to get ripped untuil 2015 face)   Pretty much all of my opponents seemed friendly though, and I dueled a lot of nice people through the day, I got a lot of attention from people for the deck choice, I also got an amazing quote from my R9 bubble opponent (who was also a nice guy):   "When I was sitting next to you earlier I saw you playing with no mat and I was like, man what a scrub!" "Then I saw you were playing Raccoons and I was like double scrub!" "But you've convinced me that you're definitely not a scrub"   So there you have it, official confirmation that I'm not a scrub (nor a scrube)    I actually felt a higher sense of achievement than a standard X-3 record, because not only where all my opponents good, I actually drew Obedience Schooled a lot less than in testing, people were actually asking me if I played the damn card. I also went 2-7 for dice rolls, and this should all have spelled disaster for the janky guy playing raccoons at Nationals.   I got to watch Andy Thomson (Geargia) play his T32 match, and then we cheered for David Stephen (Harpies) until his eventual Top 4 loss. He made this play in Top 8 Feature, where his opponent summoned FF - Bear, popped his Chidori, then mind controlled his Harpie Lady 0 in hand against 1 in hand 1 set and a face-up Hysteric Party + HHG. He flips the 2nd Party, summons 2 Ladies back, HHG pops his 1st Party which kills the Mind Controlled Harpie Lady, his opponent passes and he runs over + Cowboys for game. So sick, both those players deserve mad respect for representing Scottish YGO so well, since we were so under-represented in this tournament.   I did a deck profile with my mate Nadhir, and he also managed to get a lot of toher good profiles, like Ben Sherman's 1st place, David Stephen's 4th place Harpies, and other T8/T16 profiles from the event, I'll link to his channel once the videos are uploaded.   Overall, UK Nats was an amazing experience, the whole time was just hilarious, and nothing is as fun as knocking out opponents with raccoon shenanigans.   For those who are interested, here's my decklist from the event, which joking aside was actually the best Raccoon list I'd tested ( I did actually test a lot with this deck) and I found out during the event that with the exception of Royal Prison (didn't play against Mythic Ruler) the side deck was phenomenal: -------------- Decklist:   Main Deck(40):   3 Ponpoko 2 Tantan 1 Kalantosa 1 Wind-Up Kitten 1 Cerburrel 1 Elephun 1 Key Mouse 1 Ryko 1 Rai-Oh 1 Masked Chameleon 1 Barbaros 2 Maxx "C" - 3 Obedience Schooled 3 Upstart Goblin 3 MST 2 Soul Charge 1 Book of Moon 1 Creature Swap - 3 Fiendish Chain 2 Mistake 2 Burst Rebirth 1 Bottomless 1 Torrential 1 Compulse 1 Black Horn -- Extra Deck(15): 3 Sandayu 1 Gachi 1 Herald of Pure Light 2 Downerd Magician 1 Mist Bird Clausolas 1 Fabled Unicore 2 Naturia Beast 1 Thunder Unicorn 1 Armades 1 Naturia Barkion 1 Leo ---- Side Deck (15): 1 Maxx "C" 2 Effect Veiler 1 Creature Swap 1 Dust Tornado 1 Soul Drain 1 Macro Cosmos 1 Black Horn 2 Debunk 2 Needle Ceiling 2 Royal Prison 1 Ceasefire ------------------------ Deck Profile:   Here is a quick deck profile my friend recorded, he also managed to get Ben Sherman's 1st place Mermails, and some other really good profiles as well, his channel is new, so checking his coverage out would be nice :)   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKWPqK9faAg   ------------------------ Conclusion:   Cons: - Me losing on the bubble - Fraser Anderson losing on the bubble (Chain burn) to Karakuri w/mained decree - Lack of good side events - Playing all meta (3 Water, 2 Bujin, Dragons, Gears, Noble Knights, Spellbooks) - 2-7 in dice rolls - Not drawing Obedience/Soul Charge nearly enough   Pros: - Not a scrube - Shenanigans - Hilarious bants - Going 6-3 with a deck that just isn't real - The look on everyone's face when they got #Raccoon Shenangianned for game - Everyone being generally good sports about losing to this deck - David Stephen/Andy Thompson getting their tops - Creature Swapping a Heartlandraco in my last turn of time to win the game - Opening double Nat Beast double Sandayu against Books G3  - Teaching the world how to shenanigan Scotland style!

  4. Hey guys! I`ve been playing Infernity since it has come out, and the other day I was reminiscing about the Randomizer days. I realize that the traps were stronger at the time of this deck, but I think that the idea of this deck is still viable as something that can be considered for tournament play because the idea is unique and concrete.   Just a sample decklist:    Monsters: 9   3x Infernity Randomizer 1x Infernity Avenger 2x Infernity Archfiend 1x Infernity Necromancer 1x Infernity Guardian 1x Spirit Reaper   Spells: 13   3x Offerings to the Doomed 2x Pot of Duality 3x Mystical Space Typhoon 1x Infernity Launcher 1x Book of Moon 1x One For One 1x Reinforcements Of The Army 1x Swords of Revealing Light   Traps: 18   3x Infernity Barrier 2x Infernity Break 3x Reckless Greed 2x Reinforced Truth 2x Mirror Force 2x Dimensional Prison 1x Torrential Tribute 1x Bottomless Trap Hole 1x Solemn Warning 1x Compulsory Evacuation Device        This Is off the top of my head, but the original concept behind the deck is still there. The only matchup that it has trouble with is Blackwings, but that`s only because Bora sucks....    A quick rundown of just what that concept is: Infernity Randomizer eliminates the need to depend on a draw each turn, so cards help utilize this idea, like Offerings to the Doomed and Reckless greed. These are 1-for-1 cards, but coupled with Randomizer they will net advantage. The idea is to keep that advantage and constantly be generating it, which this deck does very well.    I run Guardian to add an attack dynamic and a permanent solution to non-active Barriers. Your opponent`s monsters will always be gone, so Spirit Reaper is there to generate even more advantage. Swords of Revealing Light is a tech card that I have always run, and it works wonders. Don`t knock it till you try it.  Other than those, it`s pretty normal. There is an extra deck, but it doesn`t really have anything to do with the idea of the deck, so I didn`t list it.   Please give any ideas of what you think about this deck in today`s meta, and what you think can make it better. Thanks guys!
  5. Hey guys whats up! Names Devon but go by the username D3von or D3vonator21!

I only play 1 Warning, This is because I don't find Warning to be as good as it was this format. Sure it stops the big summon or key play of your opponent, but the cost of the 2 Warnings and Judgment are too much and I find my self losing because of costs.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]2.) You may notice I play 3 Starlight Roads, I need my Back-row to win, What better way to protect them, then with Starlight road?[/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]3.) I'm only playing one Fossil Dyna, I like Thunder King a little more this format than Fossil Dyna, It seems to shut down more, I'm Always changing it between 2-2 and 3-1.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]4.) My Side has alot of GB hate, I have a really bad Match-up against them so I side Heavily against them, You never think mirror of oath is good until I disrupt your entire flow and Plus of it.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]5.) Why is the deck 43 cards? Well, it's to combat the Gadgets worst enemy. Gadget Hands. Where you draw more than 2 gadgets in a hand, More often than not you will lose that game. In Theory, The more cards I have in the deck the less Gadgets I'll Draw opening hand, So an Ideal hand becomes: Gadget, Stun monster, 4 Back-row. This tends to happen very consistently and I love it![/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]6.) MST and Heavy are in the side board for Decree, T.g. Stun, and GB. I'll Sometimes side in MST and side out Bribe if I won Game one, It helps my Turn go off smoothly as I won't have Bribe set.[/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I would love to hear your Comments, Critiques, and Suggestions Re-guarding my build. Thanks For taking the time to Read this[/font][/size]
  10. I haven't tested this much except a few games on DN so I'm mostly just going off of theory-oh. Koa'ki meiru doom seems like he would really shut down dark world if you can protect him. Skull meister is another card that seems effective vs dark world, along with other good fiends such as tour guide and DCK. Doom is level 3 so you can randomly tutor him with guide, one problem I'm noticing is a lack in actual targets for sangan other than guide and veiler. I could probably run crow or maxx "c" or something else for it to search. I also just like the idea of a pure fiend deck, and there is probably enough good fiends around right now to run a potentially decent fiend-based deck. Doom would also be effective vs agents, though would be almost useless in other match-ups such as plants and X-sabers.
