I've recently looked into this archetype, and I really like playing it. It plays like a combo/control deck, which I find very fun to pilot :) Explanations for card choices:
 
Thrasher: To make easy Lavalval Chain. This+Headgeared sets me up for Switchhitter plays next turn. Is also a warrior for Excalibur etc.

Magnum Shield: Testing. All the Battlin' Boxers have high DEF, and Lead Yoke becomes 4200. Yoke can also protect itself so it doesn't become a 2-1 when Yoke dies.

Foolish: For Glassjaw combos obviously
Compulse: To counter Big Eye/Dracossack mostly.
XYZ Block: Effect negation is always good

Imperial Iron Wall. Stops this deck's problem cards: BTS, BTH and Fate. It also demolishes Dragons, stops Keykerion. Nuff said.
 
The rest should be selfexplaining, if not, please let me know :)

As if "Add it?" or as if "Why is it here?". I run it because I need to protect Lead Yoke from Big Eye/Fate.

Fate doesn't target, and even if it did they could just pop the Safe Zone with it...

This build is honestly not that good.

 

You need to play Forbidden Lance (for Fate, DPrison, Compulse).

 

Photon Thrasher is dead once you have Lead Yoke out.

 

Counterblow is overrated, and consequently Blaster isn't worth running as well.

 

Also, trynet, it doesn't matter that Safe Zone is destroyed, Lead Yoke will survive with ATK boosted.

Yeah wont lie, counterpunch isn't what I'd hoped it be, at least for this format

The theme is battle oriented so you need lances.

It's bad because Lead Yoke and Headgear don't need it, Glassjaw can only use it on the ATK, Switch Hitter and Sparrer aren't going to be around to battle, etc.

 

And what's more, the Headgear shouldn't be dumping Counterblow in the first place.

 

You dump Switch Hitter first, and then Glassjaws.

 

And it's LV 3....

Counterpunch does play with a lot of players moves though. As in they make bad ones to avoid it.
I saw someone using it to try to otk, but it was bad. I would rather sit on a yoke if I felt safe.
It has only helped me out teatly once, but I probably would have survived without it.

How often do you get to dump switch hitter and glassjaw? Serious question. I can see if with Laval chain, but double headgear is unlikely.

What do you mean?

 

I always dump Switch Hitter first thing with Head Gear (if it's not already in grave). 

 

If my grave is empty and I have Switch Hitter in hand, I dump Spar with Head Gear.

 

If my grave contains Switch Hitter or Spar, I dump Glassjaw and retrieve one or the other depending on the situation. 

 

The whole point of Lead Yoke is the Switch Hitter + Glassjaw loop, where you detach Switch Hitter first, and then Glassjaw to add Switch Hitter to hand, to make Lead Yoke again.

If the grave is empty with switch in hand, what does spar give you? I am just looking to see what others do. I mean it gives you a future glassjaw target, but it seems going for the switch hitter into yoke with glassjaw sooner is probably better giving up the free add to hand.

How often do you use spar? Going into other xyz is good, but I might be missing something with him I guess.

I really don't get why you are running Dark Hole and Storm.

1. Any Boxer + Sparrer in hand

 

Normal Summon the Boxer, Special Summon Sparrer , make Lavalval Chain.

Detach to dump Glassjaw and add Boxer to hand.

No loss of advantage play, and if you protect Chain for a turn, you get a +1.

 

2) Headgear + Sparrer in hand

 

Headgear dumps Switch Hitter, Sparrer from hand makes Lavalval Chain, dump Glassjaw, add Switch Hitter to hand.

Another no loss of advantage play, and you are all set up.

 

3)  Headgear in hand + Sparrer in grave

 

Normal Headgear and dump Glassjaw for Sparrer.

Make 1 card Rank 4.

 

If you play Safe Zone, BTH, Solemns, XYZ Block, Compulse, etc., you can make Lead Yoke, Abyss Dweller, Lavalval Chain, etc. and you have a solid field :)

 

------------

 

The best card that nobody is playing (at least on DGZ thus far) is:

 

300px-MagnumShield-LTGY-EN-C-1E.png

 

This card is what breaks the deck wide open.

 

Sparrer + Magnum Shield = 2600 ATK.

Switch Hitter + this = 2900 ATK

Headgear + this = 2800 ATK

 

Lead Yoke + this = 4200 ATK, and rising.

 

You immediately force them waste removal on your Boxers, and draw it away from Lead Yoke or your other backrow. 

 

-----

 

Also, you have to play Forbidden Lance to protect Switch Hitter and Glassjaw from Bottomless.

I really don't get why you are running Dark Hole.


Dark Hole is good in here, as is Torrential Tribute, because Lead Yoke (and other Boxers) survives destruction and becomes stronger...

But why do you dump sparrer if you have switch in hand?

I saw someone using magnum shield. It produces big monsters, but it still leaves you open for the two for one.

Another cool combo is playing Assault of the Fire Kings for Flamvell Firedog and searching out Glassjaw.

But that tested badly because Assault has the same faults as Photon Thrasher, and you can't guarantee Firedog will get its effect off in this meta.

Call of the Haunted was much better, because it can be chained to Glassjaw, and Lead Yoke can protect the monster if COTH is destroyed.

I was testing it with Raioh, but it's not as needed as other cards.

RE: dumping Spar with Switch in hand and no grave.

I think you're right that Glassjaw would be the better dump, my bad.

Because you enable Lead Yoke loop.

True but it didn't test well anyway.

Photon Thrasher was better than Assault, because it works first turn.

I saw someone using magnum shield. It produces big monsters, but it still leaves you open for the two for one.

 

Just the other day, I beat over Obelisk with Lead Yoke because of Magnum Shield.

 

Most of your plays if you do them right, are 1 card plays anyway, and ideally, Magnum Shield equipped Boxer would win in battle when you use it, so the loss isn't too bad. Having a big monster than you can Normal Summon (under BTH for Headgear for instance), and can't be Veilered or Breakthrough Skilled is a lot better than you give it credit for. And it draws removal away.

 

The best card has been XYZ Block because it is so game-breaking. That's why I want to play Photon Thrasher, because I always want it live.

 

Even something like Lavalval Chain, effect, set XYZ Block is so much win.

First of all, thanks for all the great feedback, I really appreciate it!

 

Second, I acctually agree with most of our peoples points. Blaster proved not to be worth it, and was mostly a filler anyway. Counterpunch wasn't good like I thought it would be, but I think I'll still keep a single to send with Headgeared. I like being able to toolbox. Safe Zone will definitely be switched with Lances. Zones were really bad, especially with the low amount of MSTs in the meta these days. I'll keep Thrasher though, it has really helped speed up the deck and set up much faster. Heavy and to a lesser extend Dark Hole might need be that good against the meta decks, but I do play al ot of rouge decks as well, so they'll stay.

 

I didn't know that XYZ Blocker was a card, I'm definitely going to test a pair of those! I had looked into Magnum Shield a little myself, since Lead Yoke can also protect itself and not going 2-1 that much. I'll test a pair. Basicly, the changes sums up to:

 

- 2 Counterpunch

- 2 Blaster

- 2 Safe Zone

 

+ 2 Lance

+ 2 Magnum Shield

+ 2 XYZ Block

 

I also want to add Book of Moon, but I can't find the room. If the teched Counterpunch proves not to be worth it, I'll cut it for Book. I've also been thinking of adding more warrior support, since I only run warriors and Lead Yoke is my go-to XYZ. It seems lackluster, but maybe a pair of Solidarity? Also, any ideas for the last 6 spots in the side deck?

headgear and magnum shield won me so many matches at the sneek peek, especially when sending counter punch as well. Magnum shield is legit in here.

Solidarity is bad in here because you sometimes make Lavalval Chain, can make Abyss Dweller, and Maestroke (and Glassjaw gets its effect when detached for destruction). Also, Photon Thrasher can make Shock Master with Sparrer.

 

And Blackship of Corn and Diamond Dire Wolf are necessary cards.

 

-----------

 

And XYZ Block does not trigger Glassjaw from Lead Yoke...

 

------------

 

You need to play 3 Forbidden Lance. Fate is too ridiculous a card, and people play Compulse/Breakthrough, and Bottomless on Switch Hitter and Glassjaw.

 

Also, the 800 ATK boost makes up for Counterblow, and it increases Blackship's range of targets.

 

---------

 

You should side primarily for Prophecy, given that they have Fate, and you can't side EEV.

 

300px-MagicDeflector-ABYR-EN-C-1E.png

 

I like this card a lot. Stops Fate, Judgment, Wisdom, and MST (which they will bring in to deal with your Trap lineup).

 

Also, 3 Droll n Lock Bird, Rivalry of Warlords, Imperial Iron Wall, etc.

 

Siding in this deck is very powerful, it's like Blackwings in more ways than one.
