Subject: Re: Majin Buu Tech - Freestyle
---------- Original Message ----------------------------------
Hi-ya, I know you must be busy and all, but I sent you a tech way back at the end of November. I mean was my deck that bad that I didn't even earn reply just to say it sucked. While I'll try again. I've made several other deck since this one but I still want you to look at it, so I hope you can find the time.
Subject: My First Deck.
level 1 Majin Buu, Evil Buu
level 2 Majin Buu, Super Buu
level 3 Majin Buu, Piccolo Absorbed
level 4 Majin Buu, Gotenks Absorbed
level 5 Majin Buu, Gohan Absorbed

level 1 Majin Bibidi, the Mastermind
3x level 1 Majin Buu's Kamikaze Ghost

Freestyle Mastery from the Buu Saga
Anger Management - Kinda pointless without AYTE/Aura Clash Evil's True Face - Sure Frieza Smiles - Nah Majin Death Focus - nah Maijn Buu's Invincibility - of course 3x Majin Display of Power - nah Majin Power Deflection - nah Rats, Foiled Again! - maybe Time Is A Warrior's Tool - of course Transformation - Interesting...
Trunks Energy Sphere - Three please
>> Missing your staples for sure. 3 TES, Android 18's SD, Dazed, 17's
>> Smirk, CTP, and so forth. You've got some random cards, and a lot of
>> extraneous Majin stuff you could definitely go without. If you are
>> playing Freestyle, you need to focus on the beatdown with Devastation
>> Drills because that's how it works. Regen too of course. 19's Energy
>> Burst maybe. <<
3x Majin Buu's Charged Attack
Majin Buu's Energy Spray
Majin Head Blow
Majin Lightning Hit
2x Majin Planet Destruction Blast
Supreme Kai's Power Hold
>> Charged Attack eh? That card works best with a ton of Villians Only cards, which you are lacking a big quantity of. If you want to go in that direction, you should run 4 of course, and ways to make sure they hit (Menacing Evil, 18's SD, some discarding). Energy Spray is a fun card to level, but remember for the most part you should probably going physical.
2x Goku's Flight
2x Majin Buu's Bicycle Kick
3x Majin Buu's Stomach Throw
Majin Fist Block
2x Majin Head Blow
Majin Buu's Heel Kick
2x Majin Knee Strike
3x Overwhelming Attack
Majin Strength Maneuver
>> 3 Goku's Flight, 4 Heel Kick... cut the Stomach Throws... run stuff
>> like Majin Buu's Childish Taunt... maybe Gohan's Power Hit... yeah.
>> Goku's Power Strike too. Majin's Perfect Defense anyone? <<
An Amusing Trick
Burter's Power Stance
2x Energy Gathering
Frieza is Ready
Frieza's Powering Rage
>> Way too much here. I'd cut all of them except maybe the FIR. None of them seem to help much for your kind of deck. I'd settle for the good nons like Fatherly Advice, WTLTH, Expectant Trunks, DYJHT, Foreboding Evidence and so forth, to cut the non-combat count down.
Energy Storage Drill
Goku Helping Drill
Guldo's Time Freeze Drill
Majin Defense Drill
Physical Defense Drill
Total Defense Drill
Villain's Teamwork Drill
>> Physical Defense Drill will do you a whole lot of nothing once you cut all your pointless non-combats. Devastation Drill, Quickness Drill, A20 Absorbing Drill, uh... what else... outside of VD and CD... well anyway, choose your drills carefully and wisely. Intensity Drill can't even be used because you can't discard it. For some reason nothing else is coming to mind but I bet I'll remember it later. Some of your drills are pointless with Mastery while others are terrible (Determination Drill).
Majin Buu's Stomach
2x The Middle of Nowhere
The Other World
>> Middle of Nowhere... interesting. Seems a lot of the deck was based off this card. While that's interesting, you don't present a major tactic with this involved. I would instead go with Goku's House if you want MB's Invincibility regen, or run Tree of Might to pull those Devastation Drills out nice and fast for a quick beatdown before they can North Kai. Don't forget the power of City In Turmoil; even a Dimension Scream might be welcome. Stomach is one of the worst cards in the history of the game, and Shelter... while very good, I wouldn't want to give your opponent the advantage. The Other World isn't necessary; if you want to kill off allies, Human Extinction Attack is a good option.
Earth Dragonball 1
Earth Dragonball 2
Earth Dragonball 3
Earth Dragonball 4
Earth Dragonball 5
Earth Dragonball 6
Earth Dragonball 7
>> Interesting. If that's what you want sure. DB would be unexpected...
>> but in a sense I would just run them for their card powers. You could
>> just go with 3, 5, and 7, but if you want them all go for it. <<
Sensei Deck Leader
North Kai Sensei
Still don't know what to put in my sensi deck any hint's.
>> North Kai Sensei 
1 Heros Drill
2 Vegeta's Elbow Slam
2 Evil Presence Drill
2 Black Scout Maneuver
3 A Hero's Heart is Strong
2 Breakthrough Drill
I really can't think right now -_-. I know there are some other awesome options that won't get too expensive but I can't think... <<
That's probably because you are the author one of the 50+ decks in my Pojo mailbox that I didn't get the chance to tech. I will randomly tech one sometimes, but lately my life has been work, work, and work, all due to college and things like DundraCon, GT's release, and Portland Regionals (this weekend).
I was going to send a mass email about how I didn't get the chance to tech your deck to everyone... and I guess I'll be doing that a little later. I'm sorry that I didn't get to yours; frankly I'm only human and sometimes I just need to get into the groove and am able to crank out 5 or so at a time.
I have Spring Break coming up in a little over two weeks and hopefully I can get a couple done then.
And thus... yes, your deck needs a lot of work. I'm going to do a quickish deck tech, for a couple reasons.
1. GT is released, and I don't see any GT cards. There is a big gameplay difference between Z and GT, and you'll need to take that into account when you make a deck.
2. Your deck runs a lot of single cards. Usually, if that's the case in attacks and defenses and combats and certain non-combats, there's something wrong with the deck. That's because in DBZ, you run 3 copies of your good attacks because that gives you a bigger chance of drawing one as well as more chances of using the card.
This will be one of the last Z decks I tech because there's simply no reason to tech a Z deck since GT came out.
And with that have fun. I put comments above. Don't forget to update for GT.
