Hey Matthew. I'm not a scrub (at least I hope I'm not, lol) and I've got a
couple questions for you:

What do you think of Majin Vegeta Saiyan (TS Mastery, WGS lvl 1)? I mean, I
kow it won't do much at tourneys besides tick off ally decks, but just as a
fun deck.

What set of Gohan would you use with the MBS Saiyan Mastery?

Vegito's got some of the beefiest power levels in the game, and his powers
are pretty good as well (GPA doing 12 life is just awesome) and I was
wondering if you know of any way to protect the Potara Earings as tehy're
Vegito's oen (frickin' huge) weakness.

Well, scrub is what "really good people" at DBZ call people who aren't really good. You don't really get out of scrub status until you consistently place in the top cut in a couple events, or somehow nova the game in some significant way (like create a broken archtype). It is all up to the eye of whoever views you. I personally don't call people "scrubs"; I just look at if they are either new, learning, maturing, intermediate, tournament level, top cut level, or World Champion level. Honestly I put myself in the top cut level, as I've got the achievements to back it up. More or less I just ignore the "scrub" thing and just play the game.

MV 1 WGS TS Saiyan... it will annoy me, and that's about it. Nothing more, nothing less. There are some pretty good Saiyan cards that came in Buu and the Broly Subset, but other archtypes got extremely strong with the addition of cards in Fusion Saga as well as the Orange, Blue, and Freestyle MBS Masteries.

I honestly wouldn't ever attempt to use Gohan with the Saiyan MBS Mastery. His upper powers aren't really something I would dedicate a deck toward getting to and using to help you win the game because of the sheer power of his personality powers. Anger of course works since you are just passing by the powers. But Saiyan MBS goes for a high personality power, and quite frankly, going after two physicals doing 5 life or an energy doing 10 life isn't something that I would want to do. I'd rather go after drawing 3 cards when attacking/no energies for my opponent (Trunks), or drawing two cards/getting drills/etc (SS3 Goku). If you are really set on it, I would probably try out IR or MBS 1, CS 2, CS HT 3, MBS 4, MBS or CS 5.

Fusion is just plain bad, pure and simple. There's so many ways to screw it up it is just not funny. Vegito isn't really something I'd jump for joy about; my Vegito levels are just sitting in my UR box and binder. But if you want to give it a whirl, try Ingrane in the Membrane (Cosmic Anthologies subset card).
