There it is. I have worked long and hard and finally got it to where i think it should be. but please look it over. You have seen what the decks at worlds did 1st and 2nd place and you should know what works. let me know what you think and what i can do to make it better. I am trying to get ready for the tournament in St. Louise If i can win it well then i get to go to the invetational. so tell me all you can. and get back to me asap. thanks you guys are as always the best. I looks forward to your reply.

All right sir, before the last GKQ that I'm going to... Vegas. Not St Louis.

First off... South Kai and only running 4 cards in the Sensei Deck. What... you still have one more slot sir, use it. Even random stuff like Namekian Battle Stance would be better than nothing. I would recommend North or Roshi Sensei though if you ask me. Black Scout Maneuvers need to fit in if you ask me.

I would run the level 5 if you can, if not, no big deal. Switch the level 1 to the SS HT Level 1 mainly because most characters that are decent (except Buu and Goku mainly) have WEC powers, and PTT now can no longer touch them. SWK runs all over PTT. Thus, the SS HT would probably help more in the long run.

Take out Underdog Drill, don't fit the theme at all. Add a Where There's Life There's Hope, VD, and CD if you have them. Krillin's Concentrations are definitely needed.

Namekian Energy Catch is weak, take it out. FFB you don't want because you stop your own energies. Piccolo's Power Blast never struck me as good, and Vegeta's Focused Blast... never heard of it. Namekian Energy Absorption is weak as well. Run Energy Ricochets, Vegeta's Energy Focus, Namekian Door Explosions, and... if you need room, cut the VTPs (aren't needed at all), and maybe Finger/Focused Blast.

Cut VPS, NPR... and maybe some blocks, that's a bit much. You need physical attacks like Gohan's Kick to stop DB, and Namekian Dash is pretty good for regen/power to full. Namekian Shield Destruction is great tech.

You are missing Cell's Threatening Position... I think something else but not coming to mind. Oh yeah, Cell's Presence. You have no ally tech. And you need Power of the Dragon to stall DB. Aura Clash is good too.

I think your thing is you run a ton of energy attacks, but missing the fact that your goal should be the breakout combat in which you PAHG for 2x Namekian's Strike, Strike for 2x GBS or whatever, and just cream your opponent.

Oh, and you need Android 19's Energy Burst for some Drill removal.

Your biggest weakness in this deck is DB... and your lack of Drill/non-combat tech.

Wait a minute... O_O you don't run locations/battlegrounds... >_< You need 2x City in Turmoil (to shut down DB, freestyle, orange) and 1-2x Winter Countryside (to stop anger), and maybe a random location. Gohan's Nimbus Cloud is great to Strike for if you get stuck in a bad place.

Oh, and you need a DB... EDB7 is so good you need it. It can win games by itself.

Good luck, with that, you can make a good Namekian.
