December 2007
dragon deck fix. --pwii

Victor B  wrote:

My name is Victor and I have a Dragon theme deck, but I just want to know if there is still anything you can help me fix.  It really does not do well against burn or beatdown decks.  Can you fix it so that my deck can work against those deckypes also? I have been extensively testing it out with my friends and local tournaments, I am almost undefeated. anyway, I have been looking at  Pojo.com lately and I have decided to seek for help because I would like to start joining tournaments. I guess I'm a really aggressive duelist who loves to crush my opponents with high ATK monsters :)  the basic strategy is to get my high ATK monsters out ASAP.  I also have 2 secondary strategies that support the first. 1st, send the monsters I want to the graveyard and special summon them (if that does not work masoleum of the emperor and my masked dragon, decoy dragon, and twin headed behemoths work), my 2nd strategy, GET THE ARMED DRAGONS OUT (I'm sure you understand why) I have combined it from:
 
Legend of Blue Eyes
Starter Deck Kaiba
Starter Deck Kaiba Evolution
DP2 Chazz Princeton
SD1 Dragon's Roar
SD11 Rise of the Dragon Lords
(Additional resources)
 
Combos and reasons for specific cards:
 
Felgrand Dragon, Darkblaze dragon,spear cretin,  the shallow grave, trade in, foolish burial, premature burial, and call of the haunted work well for my 1st strategy.
Armed Dragons, level up, and masked dragon(once opponent destroys it, I can special summon at end of Battle Phase and I get A free Lvl 5 at MP1, destroy the monster Lvl 7), for my 2nd strategy.
dust tornado, stamping destruction, trap jammer, magic jammer, and cursed seal of the forbidden spell for spell and trap removal.
gilford, trap hole and lightning vortex for swarming.
The rest are for stall, (Blue-eyes for a traditional dragon theme deck), luster dragons are beatsticks, kaiser seahorse helps for blue-eyes and felgrand, ookazi (I'm surprised that they didn't ban this along with meteor of destruction, 800 poins is a steal!), ordeal of a traveler(I keep cards in my hand and Its a really good card, I bought it from my friend), nutrient Z(someone could hit you with a heavy hitter (with copycat+opti-cammoflauge armor), swords and steelcage for some stalling time to prepare for the main event, equip cards to additionally increase ATK, dragon's rage is a free multi-fairy meteor crush.

As a side note, Lord od D does not work in this deck, it interferes with my flow.  NO cyber dragons, too many weaknesses and I can't afford to test it out now, the tournament is in January.  Also no red-eyes, not my type of 2 tribute monster(only 2400 ATK and no effect, red eyes darkness dragon and black chick require too much luck).
 
Thank you
 

Hi, i would love to fix your deck. because you said the decks weaknessess are burn and aggro, I will be adding a few cards to make it more versitile.
 
oh, and by the way; fusion cards CANNOT be in your side deck. You should just put it in your fusion deck and just not decide to summon it.
 
first off, the cards to take out.
 
-1 nutrient Z
 
this card is good, but only against aggro decks. Most of the time it will be a dead draw, so I'm moving it to the side deck.
 
-1 ookazi
 
sorry, but this card i for burn. instead, we will put some s/t destruction to help against burn.
 
 
-1 twin headed behemoth
 
if I'm not mistaken, the banlist only allows one.
 
- every trap
 
this deck is getting to big. this is opional, but that's what i'd do.
 
-black pendant
 
if you're going to go equip, go axe of despair.
 
 
-1 dragon treasure
 
see black pendant
 
 
-1 mountain
 
sorry, but 200 attack just isn't good enough
 
-all the lv monsters & support
 
they were good, but the deck was too divided. You can keep them in if you want, but i'd advise not to split the deck so much.
 
now for the things i add
 
+2 decoy dragon
 
this thing is so good, you just have to have more.
 
+1 morphing jar
 
if you cant get this, fine. but if you have the way to get it, it would help the deck even more.
 
+1 stamping destruction
 
DEATH TO BURN!!
 
+1 mystical space typhoon
 
DEATH TO BURN!!
 
+3 spear dragon
 
DEATH TO BURN!! lol, just kidding the non/monster ratio is a little wacky so this will help
 
+ 2 spirit ryu
 
discards big hitters and can pack a little punch
 
+ 2 masked dragon
 
can keep the feild full and searches decoy
 
+ 3 axe of despair
 
pretty good, best of all equips
 
so your finished deck should look like this =
 
 
Monsters:21
 
1xFelgrand Dragon
1xdarkblaze dragon
1xTyrant Dragon
1xBlue Eyes White Dragon
1xGilford the Lightning
1xMajestic Mech-Goryu
1xTwin Headed Beheamoth
1xmorphing jar
1xSpear Cretin
3xLuster Dragon
1xThe Dragon Dwelling in the Cave
3xDecoy Dragon
3xMasked Dragon
1xKaiser Sea Horse
 
Magic/Spells:18
 
3xStamping Destruction
3xaxe of despair
1xSwords of Revealing Light
1xNightmare Steelcage
1xThe Shallow Grave
1xTrade-In
1xMST
1xMausoleum of the Emperor
1xPremature Burial
1xBig Bang Shot
1xOfferings to the Doomed
1xFoolish Burial
1xLighning Vortex
 
Traps:3
