Rain Drops Keep Fallin' on My Head!-The Water Bounce deck - GeneralZorpa
 
Now normally I don't do the whole deck thing, but this deck is one that I have loved for a long time and when I saw someone was playing it at my local, I had to bring up my version of it. Thanks to Jeremy for giving me the inspiration!
 
Key Cards
 
There will be six key cards for this deck, as they help to make it very frustrating for your opponent to get any monster at all onto the field. They will be listed here along with an explanation of why they are so frustrating for someone to play against.
 
Abyss Soldier-Bounce is a very fun mechanic, and this guy bounces for just a water monster discard. Treeborn Frog anyone?
Gale Lizard-IMO Dekoichi's little cousin, instead of a draw, he bounces a monster, and all for just a little flip! 
Nightmare Penguin-Love this guy to death. 200 ATK boost isn't a lot, but can help to end games, and he bounces ANYTHING that your opponent has on the field, and a high 1800 DEF makes him a real nightmare for your opponent.
Salvage-Two water monsters with 1500 ATK or less to your hand. Fuel for Abyss Soldier and reuse of bounce monsters.
Levia Dragin Daedalus-Demise Wishes he were this good. Higher ATK than our fiendish friend and he's water to fuel Abyss Soldier in a pinch.
A Legendry Ocean-The center piece of the deck. Lowering of levels by 1 and an ATK boost. It also is the fuel for Daedalus.
 
 
Decklist
 
Here is the decklist, which I will talk about in the next section.
 
Monsters-21
 
3 Mobius the Frost Monarch
2 Cyber Dragon
2 Levia Dragon Daedalus
 
3 Nightmare Penguin
3 Gale Lizard
3 Abyss Soldier
2 Warrior of Atlantis
1 Snipe Hunter
1 Treeborn Frog
1 Sangan
 
Spells-13
 
3 Salvage
2 A Legendary Ocean
2 Brain Control
1 Reasoning
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Mystical SPace Typhoon
1 Premature Burial
1 Heavy Storm
1 Snatch Steal
 
Traps-6
 
2 Trap Dustshoot
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force
1 Ring of Destruction
1 Call of the Haunted
 
 
This might seem to be a very all over the place deck, and it is, but that is what makes it so cool. Mobius is an iffy choice at this point, as people are tending to shy away from non chainable traps, but it works wonders against Snatch Steal and can help to clear a path through your opponent's defenses. Cyber Dragon is good in almost any deck, and can turn a desperate
situation into a winnable one. Levia-Dragon not only has huge ATK but can also blow up the field by tributing A Legendary Ocean. He is two tributes, but you will be surprised at how often you get him out.
Warrior of Atlantis is a good card in this deck as he is NEVER a dead draw. He will either be a tutor, 1900 Beatstick or 2100 Beatstick and quite possibly a 2300 if Nightmare Penguin is out as well.
 
Salvage is a beast in this deck, and will help to mitigate the loss in card advantage from the use of Abyss Soldier and Daedalus. Reasoning is a hard choice in this deck, but your opponent will never guess it right, and getting a Levia Dragon from it is just smokin' good.
 
The Traps are pretty standard, even with the Trap Dushoots. I almost fit another one and Confiscation into the deck to help control the hand better, but I ran out of room. Your opponent will likely have more than four cards in their hand as you keep on bouncing them, so you will often get this card's effect.
 
Strategy
 
The strategy is pretty simple. Use bouncing monsters and Levia-Dragon Daedalus to clear your opponent's field and smack them to death with boosted ATK monsters. AN ideal first turn play is either Nightmare Penguin or Gale LIzard Face down and Trap Dustshoot or another trap set. This will set you up to play a bigger monster next turn, like Mobius or Levia-Dragon. The deck performs best in the late game when resources are low for your opponent and their field is scarce.
 
Make it Your Own
 
This deck is very very customizable. You can take out the Levia-Dragons, Gale Lizards or anything else to add more bounce cards, like Gravekeeper's Guard and Legendary Jujitsu Master. These defensive cards not only spin, they have high DEF, allowing them to survive attacks by many monsters, like Dekoichi. Even Gravekeeper's Spy is a good card to add.
 
The Bottom Line
 
This deck is very good. There are many decks that rely on certain cards being on the field, like Cyber Phoenix, Treeborn Frog and Destiny Hero Malicious, and this deck removes them without allowing them to get their effects off.
 
Contact me at raptor1k@hotmail.com if you wanna talk Yu-Gi-Oh!, duel or even give suggestions for improving my articles. You can even yell at me for running a water deck. I just love emails, so send em' in!
 
Thanks for reading,
GeneralZorpa
