There are so many times that I want that extra plant for lonefire. I'm considering tytannial, but every time I try her, her fat ass makes its way to my hand.

It just doesn't seem powerful enough. Sure there's a lot of plays, but they aren't winning you the game, they're just good plays.

Basically what Workshop said - this deck doesn't have a good way to apply consistent pressure on the opponent (compared to the theoretical meta-game of Jan 2014).  This deck has 12 normal summons, not counting NA, Spore, Dandy, or Plague.  You probably have a decent matchup vs Bujins and maybe Geargia but that's about it.  Unless you open Card Trooper or E-con, what are you going to threaten your opponent with?  Level 8 Synchro plays are nice, but you only get to use Spore once.  Level 6s are underwhelming, level 5s are ok, and Black Rose is Black Rose, but there's no way to follow-up.  Magician of Faith seems very slow and I don't see what you'd want to grab back with it except for maybe an E-con.  PWWB isn't great without free cards to discard, I'd run Mirror Force/D-Prison to protect the Ryko.  Caius seems like a good idea too, two Sorc and a BLS isn't really enough.  Maybe Zephyros if you find room for Fiendish.

After testing 5 mins with the deck, I already cut magician of faith. tweaking things atm. Going to try and make this competitive.

Modified the decklist a little bit

Better.  Still, 28 monsters seems a bit top-heavy to me given this deck's lack of thinning power outside of milling.  I'd probably cut the dragons entirely, 2/2 isn't the greatest ratio to start with since there's a much higher risk than with 3/3 that you'll only end up with the floating going one way and they're not easy to feed early game in this deck.  That puts you down to 38, which should probably go to +1 Allure and +1 Mirror Force (and cut a CotH for a second - it's only good mid-late game outside of T-King, opening with it is pretty balls).

Scapegoat seems like it could be good in this list.

This was a list I was messing around with.  Side is irrelevant, etc.

 

I still wanna add another Caius or something like that, but I never tried the Ebony/Ivory dragons.

^ you don't find yourself wanting another plant for lonefire? Believe it or not, but I'll prob try out tytannial. Also cutting the chaos dragons. Must reduce the clunk.

I'm cutting the level 4 chaos dragons. There's not really much to abuse it with (at least with what I'm testing).

Why no crane crane?

The deck has changed quite a bit from the original version I was testing. It was more chaos heavy and there was no room for crane crane. I will have to reconsider certain choices.

I feel Crane Crane grind with Redox/Tempest is much better than this. Meliae is too strong of a card for plants to ignore.

You might be right. But I'm testing this version atm. Once I'm done exams, I'll focus more on this deck. I have a dragon plant idea that in theory may seem viable.

why do you cut the chaos dragons before chaos sorcerer? sorcerer is dead a lot more and the chaos dragons works well with lonefire for librarían + scrap or tribute for caius/enemy controller, make catastor + lavalval chain with debris (bls for days), its a great toolbox overall... I know chaos sorcerer is at 2 and its a chaos monster, but at the end its not that great anyway only in the late game is great

 

also dichotomy is awesome, not just for the +1 but getting back debris, bls, black rose, etc.

 

I think the chaos dragons are the 2014 tengu, you just need to give them consistency and a way to abuse them

The dragons are just a cute trick. I've lost every game that I open one. Don't get me wrong they're good just not as good as they seem. Also sorc doesn't need to be a 2 of in this deck. One for one has been testing really well with 3 veiler. Not as powerful as it used to be but it never will be without bulb. Also tytanial is really powerful early to mid game in game one it's a must side out card though which I'm not a huge fan of. I really like this concept though, more testing is required but so far it's amazing.

I don't see why your using trooper in here.

You dont play pot of dichotomy . You have more efficient ways of accessing your dark monsters. Your lights monsters can/ will be drawn n used more effectively.

You also have 2 monsters that work best in the gy (dandy/spore) or which foolish burial is enough.

Ryko also seems very slow this format.
