>> I would try out Arm Blast, maybe Stance if you want to level, but

My stratergy is to deck my opponent while surviing and hit them hard with all my Blue Pysicals, and then I have an added defense with my mastery, so I can'
t be decked out so easily, but there are so many flaws in this deck I was wondering if you could point them out and help me prevent them. Any advice is needed thank you for your time.

Your biggest problem is trying to win by Blue Physical. Not to mention having Krillin being your Main Personality. I'll admit you are being very brave, but nonetheless I think you would be better off either going with Krillin Blue Energy or Buu Blue Physical. Krillin and physical really doesn't match... well it can work in Freestyle, but in Blue I don't see it.

Krillin will also get beaten to a pulp very easily. He's not very strong, and since you are relying on your Mastery for defense, you will be a sitting duck at zero a lot.

With that in mind, I will do my best, but honestly if I were you I'd debate what archtype you'd really want to try. What makes Krillin good are the Level 2 HT (two energies) and Level 3 WGS (making energy attacks do like +40 power stages). He doesn't generally go toward physical, and thus it will very hard to tech this. I'm going to have to be very general on your cards, as it seems you just threw in card after card that you own, and not looking at what's really really good and using multiple copies.

First off, you need a Sensei Deck. Of some sort. I dunno. Something. HUH???. Black Scout Maneuver. Blue Energy Dive. Something. Anything.

Odd choice for an ally. That's all I have to say.

Thing is, after looking at your deck, your deck is just a random mass of random cards. Some of your elements are well thought out, but many of your attacks/blocks aren't. See, you can't expect random cards put together to work. My recommendation to you is to really decide on a theme that will work. Krillin's powers are mostly based on energy, and you've chosen a physical archtype. Prevention is great, but what happens if your discard pile gets removed or Mastery gets shutoff? You can easily be defeated once that occurs.

With that, good luck. Think about what you want to do, and take the elements from this deck and go from there.
