Deck Fix: Roshan Mandal's Zombie Ratbox

 

Yesterday, I received two decks from the same person. However, I just want to say this: Absolutely no deck fixes will be done for you if you don’t send me the request the same day I post one. And sorry, I will only select one of those Decks to be in one of these articles. I am exetremely busy and often times, these articles can get in the way. I was, however, very surprised at the number of requests I received. I wish I had the time to touch up all of your decks, but some people just have things they need to get done.

This deck is a Ratbox with a few zombies. And here it is:

 

Monsters

 

Giant Rat x2

Mirage Dragon

Neo Spacian Grand Mole

Pyramid Turtle x3

Ryu Koki x3

Exiled Force x2

Jinzo

Magician of Faith

Spirit Reaper

Vampire Lord

Sangan           

Night Assailant

Hydrogeddon x3

Breaker the Magical Warrior

EH Wildheart

Zombie Master x2

 

Spells

 

Lighting Vortex x2

Mystical Space Typhoon

Premature Burial

Smashing Ground

Enemy Controller

Brain Control

Scapegoat

Swords of Revealing Lights

Book of Life x 2

Heavy Storm

Shrink x2

Creature Swap

Pot of Avarice

 

Traps

 

Mirror Force

Torrential Tribute

Call of the Haunted

Royal Decree x 2

 

 

Well, first will be monsters. Now, since this is Zombies and Ratbox, I don’t see how Hydrogeddon lives up to it’s name. Let’s drop all 3 of the to open up new strategies.

 

Night Assailant’s gotta go. Flips are just too slow for this deck, and he barely compliments any of the other cards in this deck.

 

With Jinzo, Mirage Dragon, and those Decrees, this deck hates traps. But we’ll drop Mirage Dragon for now.

 

And lastly, we don’t need the Ryu Koki triplets. We’ll cut it down to one.

 

On to Spells. Scapegoat will slow this deck down. It’s all about swarming, and with more trap negating, we don’t need to worry too much about going all out. While it’s still a good choice, there are better out there. I don’t like Scapegoat in swarming Decks.

 

Two copies of Lightning Vortex are too much. There’s already enough removal packed in here, and the opponent will be defending more than attacking. Take one out.

 

And for the Traps. Torrential Tribute has to go. Really, it isn’t a staple. In a swarm deck, it will often take out more of your monsters than the opponent’s.

 

And now we’re gonna add some things in here. Well, we’ve trimmed the deck down from its previous chunky 46 or so. We took out 7 Monsters, 2 Spells, and a Trap. 46 – 10 is 36, giving us little room to fill.

 

I’m not going to add anything to the Traps. They don’t like this deck.

To the Spells, I’m putting in that extra copy of Book of Life. Total: 37

For monsters, we’ll add three copies of Il Blud, a secret rare from Tactical Evolution, and that’s all. However, this card is the best zombie in the game to most people, and it can costs around 80$. I don’t think Roshan would like that. If you can’t gather all of them, another Ryu Koki, a second Jinzo, and/or a third Zombie Master will probably do.

 

I will accept deck fixes only during the day this article was posted, and I will only choose one. NO COOKIE CUTTER DECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED!!! This including things like DDT, Destiny Hero Beatdown, and other decks like that. If it is your deck that you created without copying anyone, and you would like some help with it, send it to me, or any comments to destinyhero@verizon.net. However, if your name is Laurie and you’re a jerk, please don’t. I wish I could do everyone’s deck, but I just don’t have the time for it. Keep in mind that I will put it in an article.
