yeah, sappy title, but I'm being goofy.

Found were I can get my hands on some of those cards, so while I'm waiting, I'm running proxies for the time, since the local rule is you can as long as you don't go over board with it. That and it gives me an excuse to defile my old Magic: The Gathering cards. Again, its to the point that editing is a pain, because you have to really think before you trade out cards. Anyway, here is what it will look like when I'm finished. Lets see if you have anymore suggestions. Yes, I've very fast, my best friend owns the local gaming shop, so if I can't find it, he can.

Well, there you have it. I ran it with this configuration and beat the guy with a decent Majin Buu Orange deck 2 out of 2 games. We decided on a best out of 2, but I won both of them. Gave me a bit of a chill, it didn't really start working till later on in the match, but when the onslaught came, it came....all the androids out in play ripped through him after a destruction bomb and a black physcial focus from 18 to drain her, then battle paused to pull out energy web and the other bomb that was dicarded, and hit with those. It wasn't very pretty when it worked. Generally I was drawind defensive cards on my turn, and offensive on his, which was weird, but ended up working. Also made me consider using AS 18, but defense sheilds aren't that great.

Anyway, lets make this thing as mean as it can be...

Yay time to pick one of my 38 decks to tech and start.

I'd got with at least 2 Front Punches, cut one of the Face Smashes. Reason is Freestyle and Orange normally run mass Drills, as well as DB, and Face Smash will only work on Namekian.

You might even consider moving one AHHIS to the Sensei so you can main deck another card.

Try get Foreboding Evidence for those Combat cards.

Your Combats look great; if another Gathering of Heroes could fit in it might help power A18 so she can do Destruction Bombs and Prepared Stances; otherwise you look set.

You should run 3 Body Destruction without a doubt. If you start to have problems with DB, run a third Kick as well.

It is Android 19's Energy Burst, not Blast.

I would cut one more omni-defense and add in a third Turning Kick because that card is very good. Dual attack block cards are normally really good to run regardless.

And... you need Earth Dragon Ball 7. Don't leave home without it.

Wait a minute... you aren't running 3x Android 13's Prepared Stance or Android 16 Smiles... you need those!!! Run them cause Android searching ability is broke and good, trust me.

You aren't drawing defense when your opponent attacks you? You've got tons of defense looking at what I see. Remember Body Destruction, Knife Hand Strike, and Turning Kick can always be held for the following turn so you can have a block. Black's ability to have an extra attack when necessary gives it great versitality.

Good luck! Now after that, all that should be necessary is to get all those expensive cards (groan), and then... Kid Buu comes out and we start all over again!
