  1. Trickstars Deck Discussion

    I. Monsters Trickstar Candina Light Fairy / Effect Lv4 1800/400 (1) When this card is Normal Summoned: You can add 1 “Trickstar” card from your Deck to your hand. (2) Each time your opponent activates a Spell/Trap Card, inflict 200 damage to your opponent immediately after it resolves. This is your Stratos. An obvious and simple combo is to either add Lilybell or Lycoris and use their respective special summoning effects Trickstar Lilybell Light Fairy / Effect LV2 800/2000 You can only use this card name’s (1) effect once per turn.

(3) When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can target 1 “Trickstar” monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand. This card combos with both your Candina and Lightstage either of which will trigger the special summoning effect. Part of the reason some lists run 2 of this card is that the 3rd effect of Monster Reborning a Trickstar can come in handy to reextend your combos after you've burned a lot of resources. Ironically since there is no restriction on Lilybell triggering it's own effect if you had a normal summoned Lilybell on field or had it from a previous turn and both a Lilybell and Lycoris in grave you could attack add and trigger Lilybell attack with 2nd Lilybell add Lycoris send back one of the Lilybells ending the combo as the 1st effect is once per turn.

(2) Each time a “Trickstar” monster effect inflicts damage to your opponent: Each face-up monster your opponent currently controls loses 200 ATK for each monster at this card’s Link Points until the end of this turn. Trickstar Red Mary(OCG) Light Fairy / Link / Effect Link 2 2000 / R BL 2 “Trickstar” monsters You can only use this card name’s (2) effect once per turn.

(2) You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 “Trickstar” monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. This card + Droll & Lock is literally a win condition on its own leaving your opponent with no hand if you time it correctly. You search this off of Candina which is searchable off the Lightstage which is itself searchable off of Terraforming. Meaning odds are if you draw Droll & Lock you can search Reincarnation if it's not already in hand. V. Techs and Staples A. Monsters Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring Effect Monster(Handtrap) Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set.

  2. Brilliant Subterror Princesses

    Just got all the cards I need for this build I've been working on and was hoping to get some input. Still going through some alternative tech options and tweaks, but here's what I've got. Monsters (21) 3 prediction princess Tarotrei 3 subterror stalagmo 3 sub umastryx 3 sub nemesis warrior 3 manju of the ten thousand hand 2 mid shield gardna 2 gem-knight lazuli 1 prediction princess Coinorma 1 spirit of the fall wind spells (20) 3 hidden city 1 ritual sanctuary 2 terraforming 3 prediction ritual 3 pre-preparation of rite 3 brilliant fusion 2 twin twister 1 book of moon 1 ROTA 1 instant fusion Extra: 2 Gem-Knight Seraphinite 1 superdreadnaught rail cannon 1 norden 1 Number 81: superdreadnaught rail sannon super dora 2 Phantom Fortress Enterblathnir 1 Number 11: Big eye 1 Red-eyes flare metal 1 evilswarm ouroboros 1 castel 1 daigusto emeral 1 utopia 1 utopia the lightning 1 silent hint ark Here's the rundown; All subterror monsters are at 3 because there are so few cards released for the archetype you'll be shot handed by running any less. Tarotrei recycles your Behemoths and is a book of moon/ book of taiyu. The main Tarotrei play will be getting Stalagmo to hand and tributing him for the summon to bring him back at the end phase. Manju is there to get your Tarotrei out quicker. Mid-shield Gardna is an interesting tech in this deck. First of all, he's a level 4 warrior so he is ROTA target along with nemesis warrior. Mid shield's ability let's him flip himself down, which mean if you can summon him out with a behemoth in hand, you get to summon your Behemoths for free with him, also tribute fodder to use nemesis' ability to bring out Umastryx. the gem-knight monster is there as a brilliant fusion target. Coinorma is at one just as a searchable prediction princess target for banishing prediction ritual, can bring out behemoths from the deck. and spirit of the fall wind adds a flip monster to hand. spells are fairly straightforward, hidden city is a great help to get subterror a to hand and keep them on the field, ritual sanctuary can search for ritual or Tarotrei, terraforming is to get either of those to hand. ritual and pre-prep get Tarotrei out. book of moon can be used on fielded monsters with a behemoth in hand for the free special summon, rota gets nemesis or mid shield to hand, if I have a behemoth in hand I usually opt for mid shield. twin twister for back row. brilliant fusion is an extra normal summon and bring out rank 5 tribute fodder to use with nemesis warrior to bring out umastryx. extra deck is just staples along with brilliant fusion and instant fusion targets. the strengths of this deck are that it can swarm big monsters well and consistently, where it struggles are when monster effect get shut down via trap or majesty's fiend. I would love to find room in the deck for more monster removal like raigeki or maybe drowning mirror force and effect combatant like veiler. it matches up pretty well with decks like monarch or pendulums, but again lack of defense allows pendulums to swarm too easily. it also has trouble getting over untargetable beaters like dark destroyer or chaos max. a solution I added in is an instant fusion and norden to go into Utopia plays and bring out utopia the Lightning for those type of cards. cards I feel would help the deck but wasn't quite sure where to fit them in: draw power staples (duality, and/or upstart, maybe even desires) good hand traps (maxx c, veiler) good flip support monsters (pot of the forbidden, more Coinorma, more spirit of the fall wind) tech play spells (foolish burial to put nemesis warrior in the grave for a special summon if I pull out behemoths a different way besides tributing with warrior effect, book of eclipse for the flip face down summon from hand, double summon to make the deck quicker with its normal summon monsters) good trap staples (solemns, breakthrough skill, fiendish chain, dimensional prison, bottomless, or etc.) please let me know your thoughts
  3. Top 10 Decks for February 2015!

    [Youtube link removed]   Here is what I believe to be the best 10 decks for February 2015, the new sets are coming out soon and I am wondering how this is going to affect the meta.   Do you agree or disagree with my list?
  4. Scraps Post PRIO

    Typed List: 3x Scrap Chimera 3x Scrap Beast 3x Scrap Orthros 1x Scrap Goblin 3x Scrap Golem 3x Scrap Shark 1x Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders 2x summoner Monk 3x Scrap yard 3x Scrap storm 3x Scrap Factory 3x Terraforming 3x Soul Charge 3x Ayers Rock Sunrise 3x Fiendish Chain 3x Scrap Dragon 2x Scrap Twin 1x Stardust Dragon 1x Stardust Spark Dragon 1x Colossal Fighter 1x Crimson Blader 1x Leo, Keeper of the Sacred Tree 1x Evilswarm Exciton Knife 1x Number 101: Silent Honor ARK 1x Abyss Dweller 1x Diamond Dire Wolf So this is my first post to Dgz so I thought I'd start it off with an unofficial deck discussion of my favorite Deck, Scraps. I'd like to also start off by saying that I am a huge fan of consistency within my decks, which may seem odd seeing the ridiculous ratio of field spells to terraforming ratio, or the amount of graveyard recurring spells. This deck, in the current, supply unitless, that scraps need to be as aggressive and as brutal as ever in the early stages of the game and later on in the game. I've opted to play 3 yard because, again, consistentcy is key. Getting into the orthros/normal summonable tuner early game can make the difference between a turn 3 Scrap Dragon and a turn one Dragon. Along with this, factory is the o-so important first turn card in your hand because not only does it speed up the early stages of the game but it also helps to maintain advantage late game versus decks like geargia, which has an amazing grind game. 3 Ayers and 3 Soul are needed for late and early game alike. Soul can open plays for first turn scrap + spark which makes for very easy board control throughout the game. I also play 3 Golem as to limit the damage of drawing one early on because after you special the second one off factory first turn, you're left with no golem in deck for later game factory effects, ultimately losing you advantage, thus the third golem needed. Now the 7th reborn-esque card, redox, was an absolute must with three dead draw golems in main. 3 shark is needed for early game deck thinking and strong first turn plays. 3 fiendish chains finishes off the deck for traps. Fiendish being a very underused card this format doesn't necessarily apply to an under the radar deck such as Scraps who make great use of it being a continuous trap. That wraps it up for my first post, thanks for reading. If you have any changes on the deck, or your own lists, I'm always trying to improve the deck.
  5. I have been on a hiatus from competitive play, and was hoping for some advice for a deck to build if I want to get back in.   Probably the qualifications:   A balance between Auto-Pilot and Thinking of plays, Relatively budget (So sorry 101/Excitons, maybe next time), Has been winning lately.   Decks I've played before, that are dead: Gravekeeper's Lightsworn   ...s'bout it.   Any suggestions?    
  6. Noble Knights post-box

    So recently I've been reading some Arthurian legends, and had some interest in the archetype for some time. The box set seemed like a perfect time to try them out. This is the Round Table build.    Main Deck: (40)   Noble Knight Artorigus x1      Only here because he's the only vanilla in the grave Ignoble Knight of Black Laundsallyn x1      Useful late-game when I have an established board and disposable monsters as another searcher. Combos well with Merlin. Noble Knight Eachtar x1      Useful for rank 5 plays and can wall with Gwen. Just generally useful.  Noble Knight Gawayn x1       NK staple. He's for making XYZ plays without any available Arms. Since that situation doesn't arise often, I've found more than one to be too cloggy.  Noble Knight Peredur x1      Very situational, but the effect is useful when you need it. His 1900 ATK is his redeeming factor.  Noble Knight Drystan x1      The destruction effect is very helpful. Noble Knight Medraut x3      Self-Explanatory.  Noble Knight Borz x2      Integral monster, dumps Arms and allows XYZ plays.  Noble Knight Bedwyr x1      Very useful late-game, but more than one is too much.  Noble Knight Gwalchavad x1      Excellent effect in a pinch, also part of the OTK. Noble Knight Brothers x2       I love this card. 2400 DEF is great for stalling against most decks, he also allows you to swarm, especially with Eachtar and Laundsallyn Merlin x3      Searcher, plus the 2nd and 3rd effects can save your monsters or help push for game.  Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms x2      Probably the best Noble Arms card. Makes things miss timing AND protects your knights. Too bad she doesn't requip.  Lady of the Lake x1      I love my Synchros too much not to run her.  Reinforcement of the Army x3      Duh. Soul Charge x1      Just an amazingly versatile card.  Last Chapter of the Noble Knights x2      Fantastic recovery card, but 3 is too cloggy. Foolish Burial x1      Gwen, Merlin, Artorigus, Eachtar Mystical Space Typhoon x2      Duh. Noble Arms of Destiny x2      This effect is just too useful to pass up. This + Excaliburn = NaCl Noble Arms - Gallatin x1      FEEL THE POWER! Noble Arms - Caliburn x1      I usually end up with enough LP to just stall to a deck out.  Noble Arms - Excaliburn x2      Targeting protection is huge. The RUM effect is just bonus.  Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr x1      Equip it to someone, pop, XYZ/Synchro. Or you could just equip it to an opponent's monster and reap the benefits.  Noble Knights of the Round Table x2 Solemn Warning x1      You shall not PASS!   Extra Deck: (15)   Goyo Guardian Ignoble Knight of High Laundsallyn Sacred Noble Knight of King Artorigus x2 Dark Rebellion XYZ Dragon      Between roided-up Kings and Excalibur, this deck doesn't really have problems beating over stuff. Considering dropping it for Castel or Number 80. Blade Armor Ninja Number 101: Silent Honor ARK Artorigus, King of the Noble Knights x2 Heroic Champion - Excalibur Starleige Paladynamo Evilswarm Exciton Knight Bujintei Tsukuyomi Lavalval Chain Abyss Dweller   Side Deck: (15) I kinda threw this together without really thinking so suggestions would be appreciated.    Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning Thunder King Rai-Oh Maxx "C" x2 D.D. Crow x2 Release Restraint Wave x2 MST Forbidden Lance x2 Breakthrough Skill x2 Royal Decree  x2
  7. Never Thought i'd See Volcanics Supported

    Yet here it is   Monsters 3x Volcanic Rocket 3x Volcanic Slicer 3x Volcanic Shell 3x Volcanic Scattershot 3x Volcanic Counter 3x Royal Firestorm Guards   Spells 1x Raigeki 1x Dark Hole 2x Pot of Duality 1x Book of Moon   Traps 2x Volcanic Recharge 3x Reckless Greed 1x Torrential 2x Dimensional Prison 1x Compuls 3x Vanity's Emptieness 3x Blaze Accellerator Magazine 1x Solemn Warnign   Extra Whatever Rank 4s you can throw in, nothing in particular is "Needed" for this deck, i hardly ever need to xyz (though i do run 2 Emeral for the Avarice effect)   So  card Choices   for the monsters i went with the standard volcanics alongside Slicer, slicer is a decent beatstick that makes rank 4s with rocket and can do a quick 500 if needed, rocket searches or recyclles magazine, scattershot is the star player of the deck, basically magazine turns scattershot into Raigeki + 1500 Burn without minusing your hand, and it can be sprung on either turn. Shell is a great resource too for drawing through the deck. counter makes the opponent think before attacking and  can be a surprise game ender if needed. and Firestorm Guards is  Avarice on Legs that can recycle itself   the spells are few and few needed, staples mostly duality is because i rarely SS   the traps are the key to the deck, they can protect you while you get your resources to your hand for clearing fields and attacking or just keeping your options open most of them focus on defence, protecting you destroying your opponent's cards or disrupting their plays, Magazine is the new OCG Volcanic Card and its the key to making the deck a lot more consistent   This card's name becomes "Tri-Blaze Accelerator" while it is on the field. During either player's Main Phase: You can send 1 "Volcanic" card from your hand to the Graveyard, and if you do, draw 1 card. You can only use this effect of "Blaze Accelerator Magazine" once per turn. During either player's Main Phase: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; send 1 "Volcanic" card from your Deck to the Graveyard.   ignoring the first effect since Doomfire is gimmicky at best, its the second effect  where it shines. basically once, during either turn, you can ditch a volcanic card like shell or scattershot to draw another card, this thins the deck and lets you get to your key cards faster. plus if its destroyed you can banish it to foolish a volcanic like counter for a suprise later.   The concern with the deck mostly for me is  lack of a solid win condition, i mean i can win through beatdown/slight burn and have won quite a few duels against the likes of LS and BA already but it dosent have a Solid wincon, theres nothing that jumps out as "This is how you can win with this deck". i also find recharge to be a little dead sometimes though it has come in handy when i dont have a firestorm guards sitting around.   well, lets have all your criticism and hate then :P    
  8. Nine Layers of Hell

      Monsters   1x Black Luster Soilder - Envoy of the beginning (Mid - Late game back up) 1x Genex Ally Birdman  (Use TGU eff to summon a BA monster then return it to the hand and SS birdman, Synchro into Virgil + a BA in hand ready for eff) 3x Cir, Malebranche of the burning abyss 3x Graff, Malebranche of the burning abyss 3x Scarm, Malebranche of the burning abyss 2x Rubic Malebranche of the burning abyss 3x Tour guide of the underworld   Spells 1x Allure of darkness 1x Soul Charge 1x Rank-up-magic Astral 3x Upstart Goblin (Prefer this than Supply squad) 3x Mystic space typhoon   Traps   3x Mind Crush (abit cheeky really becuase it lets you have a sneek peak at your oppents hand + Can purposly ditch a BA monster to trigger its effect) 3x Phoenix wing wind blast 2x Karma cut 1x Traveler of the burning abyss (Works well with Fire Lake or if they decide to dark hole, raigeki etc) 2x Fire Lake (simply to blow s**t up! 3 is to many from personal exp) 3x Vanity 1x Wire Tap 1x Trap Stun   Extra   3x Dante 3x Downerd 2x Pleides 1x Number C69 (Big beater) 1x Chronmaly Crystal Chrononaut (Can be tricky to get rid of + Rank-up into C69) 1x Grenosauras 1x Number 61 (For the burn and to remove monsters) 1x Number 47 (for dirrect damage to finish game) 2x Virgil   Side   Ingnore the side deck.     Hi all! New here so sorry in advance if ive done anything wrong. Well I think its safe to say everyone knows how BA decks works and mine isnt any differant minus a few cards (I explanned next to those cards), I though I would post it up to get some feedback and to see if anyone has any suggestions. This deck has been playing well on DN over the past few weeks and ive put alot of time into testing differant cards but its always good to get a fresh set of eyes.   Thanks in advance and I look forward to being active around the forum.    
  9. July 2014 Six Samurai

    Hey guys, so I was thinking of rebuilding my Six Spamurai after the last banlist which I think gave them a nice little boost. This build has been doing decently online and I feel like it can be improved some more.   My main goal is consistency, so thats why I have a lot of draw power and searchers.

I played around with a rank 3 variant, but it was bricking harder than I wanted it to, so I thought about the build and remembered  Bazaar of Baghdad's <a href="http://duelistgroundz.com/index.php?showtopic=159555">Normal Exodia</a> deck and applied it. The deck is simple: accrue normal monsters, make xyzs. So far, I'm just playing with this for fun.

Crow 2x Maxx "C" 1x Dimensional Fissure 1x Mind Control 2x Breakthrough Skill 2x DNA Surgery 1x Macro Cosmos 2x Mind Crush 1x Soul Drain   Hey DGZ! As the name implies, this is the deck that I intend to play with at YCS Philly next weekend. However, I'm aware that this isn't as good as it can be. I've been a little out of touch lately with the latest techs and strategies for the post-PRIO format, so I don't know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing to prepare for it other than expect the obvious increase in play of Scraps and Madolches, as well as the introduction of Artifacts. My main concern is with the Side Deck, which is constantly changing. What are the best cards to side for this event? Overall though, I believe that every aspect of the deck could be improved to some extent. So please, give me any constructive criticisms that you may have, and I'll do my best to either replicate the advice, or explain to you why I choose not to make that decision. Thanks for reading!

  18. I was wondering what deck to play this format for a while, I don't want to drop a lot on a high tier deck yet b/c it will most likely get hit in 2 months on the banlist -_-  So I decided to build a Traptrix deck!  It is about complete, just need to tweak the main/side deck.  Any tips will be helpful, I will most likely be taking this to my Regional Feb. 15th, and OTS Feb 22nd (Birthday!)    Monsters: 12   3 Traptrix Myrmeleo (Best Top Deck EVER)   3 Traptrix Atrax (Lets me keep my Trap Holes in my hand)   2 Beetron (Dirty Plays with Call of the Haunted/Myrmeleo)   2 Cardcar D    1 D.D.

  19. 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!
  20.   Here's the list I've been trying at locals, and I've been doing fairly well with it.   Megalo: I run triple Megalo because without Tidal, I like three to facilitate Rank 7 plays. I like to see it more than I used to. Turge: Turge allows for recycling of the one Deep Sea Diva as well as your Infantries and can allow some very unfair things if combo'd with Gunde and a Pike in the graveyard. Having an infantry in the graveyard with this play is icing on the cake. Deep Sea Diva: Despite its limitation on the banlist, it can still be searched by your one Dragoons, and allows instant access to Armades for Bujins, Geargia, and GK's, Armored Kappa to pop face up threats, or even combined with an Atlantean, Black Rose Dragon. Aqua Spirit and Abyssocea: I run two Aqua Spirits and Ocea in the main for the broken Bahamut Angineer play. If you don't draw that well, Ocea allows for an opening like Zenmaines and Linde which is very good. As the very least, Ocea can tutor Linde from the deck with a less-than-optimal hand. Creature Swap: This card is the absolute stones in this deck. If you don't like this card, you've never seen the look on somebody's face when you give them a Linde and take their bigger monster (If it's Crimson Blader, extra lulz). I side a second one for Bujin and decks that make Crimson Blader. Mystical Space Typhoon: I feel like this card is necessary at 3 now, alongside three Marksman (great against Geargia and GK's). Space alone is great for Fire Fists, (gotta hit that Tenki) and great against Spellbooks and GK's for their field spell. Backrow is what holds this deck back from putting well over game on board each turn. Being able to put pressure on board along with getting rid of problem backrow (or forcing premature use of it) is what I think this deck does better than any other one. Maining 3 to hit things like Decree, Soul Drain, D-Fissure, and Macro lurking in random rogue/anti-meta decks is good as well. I side 3 Dust Tornado for anything I suspect may side those 4 cards, because the latter three simply prevent you from playing Yugioh. Dark Hole: I think Dark Hole is good again. With the relative lack of Dragon Rulers in the meta, your field is much more important and less... temporary? Dark Hole is once again a game changing card that I think should come out of the side deck. Abyss-Squall: [TESTING] Not quite sure about this card. It's a +2 if used optimally, which is late game. It's a massive momentum shift that lets you bring out any Xyz from your extra deck (as well as getting a linde effect off, OR coupled with a normal summon, a second Xyz) but it only obviously works late game. It is a dead draw early game and requires a bit of setup. I play one copy because it's really good, and I'm testing it atm. Traps: I play the four one-of traps Torrential Tribute, Mirror Force, Bottomless Trap Hole, and Solemn Warning to help back up the powerful boards this deck produces and to deal with threats the opponent places on board. I opted not to use Compulsory Evacuation Device because of the lack of things to return in bad situations. Yamato? Bear? Megalo or Teus? Armor? It's still a very good out to Extra Deck cards and it is of course chainable to opponent's destruction effects so I would like some input on the use of Compulsory.  Extra Deck: Should be pretty standard, I play only Armades as my level 5 because the primary reason to play that OR Catastor is Yamato, and Armades is simply better for that. Other monster threats can be dealt with with Kappa which provides more synergy. Black Rose is nuts in the deck, all you need is Diva and an Atlantean. Side Deck: Self explanatory. Side third Infantry for Evilswarms. Encore for Evilswarms, Constellars, and Dragon Rulers (or anything else that makes Felgrand). Overworked for Fire Fists, Inzektors, and maybe Noble Knights. Second Creature Swap for Noble Knights and Bujins. DNA Surgery for Bujins and Prophecy. Imperial Iron Wall for Prophecy, Dragon Rulers, and maybe Bujins. And finally, Dust Tornado for super backrow heavy decks, as well as things suspected to main/sideboard any of the floodgate "can't play Yugioh" cards.   Things to try: (are these any good?) Fishborg Archer, Divine Wrath, Lack of Aqua Spirit/Ocea, Abyssdine, Dragon Ice, Genex Engine, Abyss-Squall (currently in) Any comments or suggestions are welcome, this is a new build I'm testing and I want input and criticism. I think this deck has a lot of potential this format, despite the hits on the F/L list. Reason being is because the floodgate cards to stop it are all limited, and it has one of the most powerful removal engines in the game, as well as pumps out Rank 4's and 7's, and as a very powerful boss monster for each of those types. (Bahamut Shark and Mermail Abyssgaios). Thanks guys!

Should I replace one of the Book of Lifes with something?

I feel like Dragunity Rulers are the strongest deck of the format, even post Shadow Specters when we get cards like Felgrand to influence the format. Sorry for the pictures, my light sucks and I tried to get as minimal of a glare as I could. Also there are like four cards I can't find right now so I just put empty slots in the pictures and typed out the decklist.   If you have any questions or criticisms, comment below! Enjoy the decklist and another good song I've been listening to lately.
  23. Spellbook Deck Help

    Here's the deal: Nationals are in about 1 week, and for the first time in a while I went to locals and didn't get first place. I ended up losing to a Dragon Ruler deck in the cut. I sided in 3 Mind Drain and a second Jowgen, he sided in Last Day of Witch and some Fusiliers for a first turn EEV. Now, for the other rounds, I won BUT I noticed a lot of dead drawing into Drolls (I main deck 2). So, here's what I need help with: I like my Spellbook deck for the most part, but in Nationals, bad hands just won't cut it. I'd like to accomplish a few things:   -I'd like a monster option in my deck other than Droll and Lock (I may not even side them, since most good Spellbook players can play around it) but on the other hand I want people's opinions on this card.   -I'd like side options that can counter Dragon Rulers more efficiently, since if I don't open Mind Drain I'm kinda wide open.   -One of the reasons I lost was he was able to Tsukuyomi my Hall'd up Kycoo. I realize that Tsuk is a problem for me, so I'd like more options for it other than Solemns.   -And if there's anything else wrong with the deck, let me know. (For example, I've been told Upstarts are better than Crescents, but I'm not really sure which one I'd like to go with yet.)   Here's my build:    (If the link doesn't work, let me know and I'll just type my build). In any case, thanks for reading and (hopefully) helping me out. :)
  24. Plasma Plants

      After reading the CoreTCG article about the Destiny HERO Plasma deck that did pretty well in an OCG tournament, I couldn't help but try and adjust it to my own liking. My main problem with the OCG built is that it was specifically designed to counter the meta there (AKA Dragon Ruler, or what we used to call Elemental Dragons). Thus, some card choices didn't really make any sense unless you considered the reasoning behind it. The aim of my built is to try and expand on this deck, making it more versatile, explosive, and generally able to handle a wider variety of decks. Despite what the metagame dictates, there will still probably be a good number of rogues running around for some reason.   If you haven't read it, the article can be found here: http://blog.coretcg.com/finding-a-counter-the-new-perfect-circle/   Monsters: 20   2x Debris Dragon 1x Spore 1x Dandylion 1x Lonefire Blossom 2x Card Trooper 1x Elemental HERO Neos Alius 1x Elemental HERO Stratos 2x Destiny HERO Plasma 2x Summoner Monk 2x Photon Thrasher 2x Thunder King Rai-Oh 2x Maxx "C" 1x Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning   Spells: 14   2x E - Emergency Call 1x The Warrior Returning Alive 1x Reinforcement of the Army 1x Dark Hole 1x Monster Reborn 1x Heavy Storm 2x Mystical Space Typhoon 1x Pot of Avarice 1x Scapegoat 1x Enemy Controller 1x One for One 1x Foolish Burial   Traps: 6   2x Call of the Haunted 3x Compulsory Evacuation Device 1x Solemn Warning   Extra: 15   1x Formula Synchron 1x Hyper Librarian 1x Catastor 1x Black Rose Dragon 1x Ancient Fairy Dragon 1x Stardust Dragon 1x Scrap Dragon 1x Gem-Knight Pearl 1x Number 39: Utopia 1x Maestroke the Symphony Djinn 1x Gagaga Cowboy 1x Gem-Knight Emeral 1x Lavalval Chain 1x Number 51: Blackship of Corn 1x Leviair the Sea Dragon   Side: 15   1x Maxx "C" 2x Effect Veiler 2x Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer 1x Mystical Space Typhoon 2x Mind Crush 2x Imperial Iron Wall 3x Soul Drain 2x Dimensional Prison   Plasma can be easily summoned due to the sheer power behind the effects of Dandylion and Lavalval Chain. Three monsters hit the board just from Chain dumping Dandylion from the deck. Should Dandylion already be in the graveyard, Chain can stack Debris on top of the deck, making Plasma viable next turn through Debris -> Dandy -> Ancient Fairy Dragon. Stratos is another lynchpin, being able to search Plasma when you need it via simply getting it to your hand using the spell support, CoTH, or Summoner Monk. In fact, Monk + a Spell, should it be successful and not be negated by Veiler (huge problem), makes a Plasma play viable. 14 spells should be enough to fuel Monk when you need to. Triple Compuls is decent as most decks have power plays coming from the extra deck and Compuls conveniently dodges destruction immunity. I couldn't help but put in BLS because this deck seems to be perfectly capable of bringing out a LIGHT and a DARK into the grave.   One major concern is that effect negation makes Monk very sad. Cards like Veiler, Fiendish Chain, and Breakthrough Skill will prey on Monk's rather hefty cost. Another problem I had specifically was just fitting in cards. The side deck also probably looks rather atrocious, most likely due to my ignorance into the finer intricacies of the metagame. However, in my opinion, the biggest problem is that I haven't tested this at all. With that said, I probably won't be able to test this thing until school is over, so I would greatly appreciate if anyone who tries this deck comes back with some report on how it went. Even a "This was great," or "It sucked" would do.   I'll like to give due credit to the authors of the comments below the CoreTCG article, which saved me from some amount of time having to think, as well as that person, whoever it is, who came up with this deck in the OCG in the first place.   Please leave your comments below, I will try to address them to the best of my ability, and thank you for your time.
