My strategy is to get my drills out asap. I can prevent 5 life cards from
all attacks by using my power / sensei / orange hiding drill. Also all
physical attacks only do 3 power stages against me because of orange
haulting drill. If my opponent is playing a physical deck and gets me to 0 I
will only take 3 stages from his / her physical attacks. Because I am at 0 I
convert the 3 stages into 3 life cards and my power / sensei prevent all
damage. That means physicals cant do a lot of damage to me.

I have land in pain in the deck to get rid of city in turmoil and dying
planet. I can use black scout maneuver to remove cards like blue betrayal,
orange staredown etc. With my mastery I discard my orange focusing drill to
search my deck for an orange focusing drill and another drill that I need. I
then use my power straight afterwards to shuffle orange focusing drill back
into my deck for the next time I use my mastery. I have 3 orange focusing
drills in my deck incase one of them is removed, that way my strategy will
still work.

If I am facing a regen deck or if the game is just taking to long I use the
eternal dragons quest and after my 7 turns I will win. I have a lot of
defense so I doubt my dragon balls will be captured, I also can use black
scout maneuver to name earth dragon ball capture, that will give me a better
chance of not having my db?s captured.

Buu Orange Drill eh? I guess it can work.

I'm thinking you should run the other level 3 and of course a level 5, but that's up to you.

Unfilled Sensei deck... *faints* Orange Reflex x3 needs to go in. For the last card, probably A Hero's Heart is Strong... something at least.

I would run more than one Winter Countryside. Probably 3. The reason is because of City In Turmoil... and you should probably run Nimbus as well.

As for your allies, I would probably run MV1 WGS over the MBS one. The physical won't be helpful if you raise anger and stuff. If you are running the UR, it would be ok, but not the greatest. PuiPui might be more helpful.

Run alt Earth DB 3. Laugh at your opponent as they try to steal a DB now...

I would also run Expectant Trunks, Long Journey, Releasing the Sword, Frieza is Ready, Where There's Life There's Hope, and maybe another EDQ. That will help you out a lot.

As for your Drills, I think you might be able to take out the Energy Dan Drill... if you need room.

Your Combat cards are solid. Reserves can be cut if room is needed.

I would add 2 more Tribeams if you can. I'd run 3 Jolting Slash and cut the Solar Flares if necessary.

I wouldn't run Frieza's Force Bubble in an energy based deck. In your case, I would just run more energy defense; there are a few that aren't too shabby. Omni-defense shines here as well. You do need more defense than what you currently have though.

I would add one more Uppercut, and probably 2 more Fist Catches over the Stance and Resistance. You won't always have Haulting Drill out. If City does hit the table, you will have a few problems. Usually Alt Dende 3 takes care of that but you are running Earth DBs.

Don't take your Drills for granted; I would still run some ample defense just in case. Jolting Slash will help, but you won't always have it.

Good luck. This is very solid; you've got almost everything going right in this deck. A little more defense and a couple random cards coming out and this can definitely go far.
