 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

Strategy vs. Chaos.Who will win??-JO

Okay,so here's what happens.We imagine two duelists in a duel together.One uses a Chaos-based deck.The other uses a seemingly simple,but perfectly thought-out and strategized deck.Which deck will win?
 
Many wouldn't even have think about their answer.Chaos wins.Chaos always wins.Right?
WRONG.
 
The point I will try to make in this article is that even a Chaos deck can be powerless a well thought out,strategized deck.Hopefully you will understand this by the end of the article.
 
A Yugioh deck is more based on the duelist than the cards in the deck.A duelist has to know his cards,what they are,what they do,and how they all work together to form the deck itself.This is what a lot of Chaos decks lack.If the duelist can't use the cards,the deck is useless.
 
Take the Swamp and Lava Battleguards for example.If they are both on the field at the same time,they gain 500 attack each.No equips needed!Thanks to this simple effect,a whole deck can be constructed around these two cards!
 
Strategy is the key to winning,plain and simple.A theory I have thought of is called the strategy circle.Here's an example:
                           
Say that the ten cards listed are all in the same deck:
1.Lord of D.
2.Flute of Summoning Dragon
3.Armed Dragon LV.3
4.Armed Dragon LV.5
5.Swords of Revealing Light
6.Red-Eyes Black Dragon
7.Pot of Greed
8.White Dragon Ritual
9.Paladin of White Dragon
10.Blue-Eyes White Dragon
 
First,Lord of D. is summoned,followed by the activation of Flute of Summoning Dragon.This can then be used to summon Armed Dragon LV.3.Swords of Revealing Light is then played to protect Armed Dragon LV.3 until the next Standby phase.In this phase Armed Dragon LV.3 can be sacrificed to Summon Armed Dragon LV.5.White Dragon Ritual is then activated to summon Paladin of White Dragon by sacrificing Armed Dragon LV.5.Paladin of White Dragon is then sacrificed to summon Blue-Eyes White Dragon.The opponent's next turn is useless thanks to Swords of Revealing Light.The next turn commences.And Blue -Eyes attacks the opponent directly.Last turn for Swords of Revealing light.Blue-Eyes attacks again.The opponent loses.
 
NOTE:This is a very poor example considering Red-Eyes and Pot of Greed are not even used.And the opponent can still summon and use spell or trap cards.
 
I hope that I got my point out in this article.Quick Review:
1.The duelist must know his/her cards and know how they work together.
2.Strategy is the key to winning.
The point I hope i've made,and will enforce in future articles,is that between strategy and raw power,9 times out of 10,strategy will win.
