Not a regional deck this time, but hopefully it could be a good tourney deck, I've learned a lot and you don't have to say a lot just give me your rating and your say if thats fine by you. Do you think I should run that many blocks, or you think I should lighten down and do you think I should run more attacks and more combats? Which ones? Thanks again.

These are using most of my best cards I own, if you mention another card that might be better I'l double check to see if I can get it or if I have it and didn't put it in by accident. Do you think I should put in Krillin's Heat Seeking Blast for any of these cards?


Sure, a couple tips and I'll be off. I've been slacking lately on Pojo stuff seeing I've been working all week and trying to spend some time with myself and some of my friends on the net as well. That and working hard on some trading to strengthen my deck up to par for GKI and the now upcoming Big 5 in Las Vegas which I'm going to try to attend. People, give me shiny cards... lol...

Anyway... let's see. One thing you might want to do now is add Black Scout Maneuver and even A Hero's Heart is Strong because they are now are Sensei Deck Only/Sensei Deck respectively.

Good, working on the City. Definite improvement. Same with the Combat area; dropping probably Dragon's Victory for that third Confrontation makes it top notch. I don't think I could make that section any better myself.

Krillin's Heat Seeking Blast does not need a place in this deck, so don't worry about it.

I would attempt to get Frieza's Force Bubble/Goku's Running Defense only if you think they will strengthen the energy block area.

And you by all means still have too many of them physical blocks. I'm doing the bad english on purpose. One thing I think you haven't done is look into the Broly Subset enough. There are a whole bunch of really really good cards in that subset that you are overlooking. That will probably allow you to look at many cards that can probably replace Flying Tackle/Triple Kick/Fist Attack (Direct Strike is better).

Oh, and you might want to look into Face Off. It is a pretty nice if you ask me.

Good Luck! This a definite improvement - 6.1 out of 10. Remind yourself that 5.0 means you've got nearly all the staples and everything running. Your Sensei Deck can be a bit more focused, cut some blocks, and add some bigger physicals. Cross Punch... yeah, try it out. Hurt bad.
