 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

 

August 2007

This Tip Was Made For Tippin - That Guy

 We meet again in a third article. My previous two were more towards winning and the elements of it. This one is that and a little more.
I'm sure most of you have gotten the news of the new ban list. Snatch, Ring, Metamorphosis gone, Breaker, MOF, back, everybody's happy. Now people are fighting over which decks will kill this next format. Which is the next rogue deck to make it big in a SJC?

There are many decks coming to mainstream due to the release of some amazing cards. Trooper-Monarch now becomes Apprentice-Monarch. Zombies, Gravekeeper's, Crystal Beasts, and possibly Gemini or Normal Monsters make the big screen. Lockdown Burn becomes the next big thing with Marshmallon. There are far more decks to beat this format. Yu-Gi-Oh is rising, but at the same time is dying due to the release of all these great cards. To keep it alive, we must focus on a bigger circle of decks so we can want more and not be content. Not to say I'm working for UDE and want you to spend money on 3 Crystal Seers (looking for just 1) or go buy all the structure decks to collect 2 cards from each you need, no. Yu-Gi-Oh's plants and trees are the duelists. If we don't buy (create oxygen), the human (Yu-Gi-Oh) will die. I know it's a gay example but when you think about it, it works. So where is this going, you ask? I dunno...just kiddin. If you don't want your precious game to die, then send me a bagillion zillion billion yen. Or just find more decks to play so we can make this game more diverse than what it's going to be. I've built a deck here, (yes finally, a deck by That Guy!) which is sure to catch much attention because of how it moves and what it does. It's a long forgotten deck and it will make it big because it is similar to Lockdown Burn but it wins in different ways.

Exodia, Obliterate

Monsters

Exodia the Forbidden One
Left Leg of the Forbidden One
Right Leg of the Forbidden One
Left Arm of the Forbidden One
Right Arm of the Forbidden One
Sangan
Des Lacooda x3
Emissary of the Afterlife x3
Marshmallon
Spirit Reaper
Dekoichi the Battle Chant Locomotive x3
Dark Mimic Lv 1 x3

Spells

Upstart Goblin x3
Level Limit Area - B
Card Destruction
Swords of Revealing Light
Nightmare Steel Cage x2
Monster Reincarnation x2
Messenger of Peace x2

Traps

Gravity Bind
Jar of Greed x3
Backup Soldier x2
Mask of Restrict x2

This deck is very fast at thinning, as you can see. 6 flip monsters, 6 draw 1 cards already = a 28 card deck. I'm surprised many people overlook Des Lacooda in an Exodia Deck. Stealth Bird gets its recognition because it spells or gravity bind lock while it flips up and down for 1000. Des Lacooda is the draw version. Stop em with Gravity Bind or something and keep flipping it up. I always net 2-3 cards for each one. Saying I only get out 1 with the minimum, that's a 26 card deck. Card Destruction can be used when you have 7 ish cards in hand with Back Up Soldier or Monster Reincarnation for the effect Exodia. Thats in the 10s. So if you can last that long with the proper stall cards, Exodia is in, and they're out. Mask of Restrict is ani-Monarch/Demise or whatever. Messenger, Bind, Level Limit, Steel Cage, and Swords are all good stall. Reaper and the new Marshmallon stall attacks. Monster Reincarnation and Backup are for dead or discarded Exodia pieces. Emissary and Sangan search the pieces and there you have it. Ram em into something if you have to.

So that does it. Exodia may make a big return if people can get the money for him. there are plenty other decks that may make big returns. Gravekeeper's included, so don't rule anything out, even Harpies.
