Now other than the cards that I need, what part of my deck do I need to
improve on. As you can see my deck is a physical beatdown deck. I also have the TS
mastery and the WGS mastery but I'm using my CS for now. I want you to go all
out on this deck and tell what's wrong and what's right about it. Tell me what
I need and I'll see if I can get it. I mainly get my cards from my friend who
has alot of singles so if I need it, he'll probably have it.

Thanks for your time.

Again eh? Ok then...

Well, about SS3 Goku... what's wrong with SS3 Goku? I mean... it is a UR to add to a deck... there's nothing wrong with that. I mean, if you don't have it, the BS level 5 isn't too bad. But of course if you are trying to play Saiyan Goku 1-4 anger then you don't need the level 5.

Yes, you need the HT Level 3... pretty bad.

Yes East Kai is just plain bad... don't give me the excuse you don't have a different one... get one! ^_^ Shouldn't be too hard. North Kai would probably be the better choice.

You need to run 2 Black Scout Maneuver, 1 HUH???, and 1 Saiyan Headshot in your Sensei Deck. At least I would.

Ok, I'm looking at your attacks and blocks, and while I'm not going to comment on all of them, you are running some I would never run, and I don't see Cross Punch anywhere. I would also consider running a bit more anger since once you hit level 3 you won't have much to raise your anger.

You also have WAY too many physical blocks. Personally I think 8 or so with some omnis is more than enough, if you have the right ones.

You are on the right track with many of your cards. I think if you focused a bit more on anger and beatdown instead of not getting hit, you'll be fine. Saiyan always favors offense over defense. You are pretty close; run a few of the staple Combat cards you are missing (Confrontation, Power of the Dragon, etc) and this deck can go pretty far. You also need ChiChi... Goku's Physical Attack...
