June 2007 - Gravekeeper's Deck - By Cam

Who likes Gravekeeper's? I do...Not as much as Dragons but I realize these are cool too. So I have made a deck of these, ofcourse I've tried to use as few staples and crap as possible because I only have so many Heavy Storms, Sangans, Call of the Haunteds, etc. and I build so many decks. As such this may not be the most competetive Gravekeeper's Deck because I don't just have 1 deck, but I think it's pretty good:

40 Cards

Monsters: 19
Gravekeeper's Assailant x3
Gravekeeper's Cannonholder
Gravekeeper's Chief x2
Gravekeeper's Commandant x3
Gravekeeper's Spear Soldier x3
Gravekeeper's Spy x3
Mystic Tomato x3
Sangan

Magic Cards: 14
Heavy Storm
Magical Dimension x3
My Body as a Shield x3
Mystical Space Typhoon
Necrovalley x3
Smashing Ground x2
Snatch Steal

Trap Cards: 7
Magician's Circle x3
Rite of Spirit x3
Torrential Tribute

Pretty focused eh? Beatdown's the name of the game, use the Spies, Tomatoes, Chiefs, Circles and Rites to swarm the field, and back up the swarm with 3 My Body as a Shield, 3 Magical Dimension and a couple of Smashing Grounds for some backup removal. Some people wonder how many Commandants and Necrovalleys to run, I say why? I've seen people put 3 Commandants in and only 2 Necrovalleys and back it up with the fact that if they were topdecking they'd rather have the beatstick than the Field Spell. SO WHAT! If you're not topdecking and your opponent just blew through both of your Necrovalleys with MST and Heavy Storm you're screwed because your Gravekeeper's don'y work anymore.

For me the decision was simple, the Gravekeeper's are Tier 1 with Necrovalley out, and crap when it's not. It's because of this reliance on the Field Spell that Gravekeeper's hardly ever Top 8 at major events, so it's easy to see that you want the best chance of getting it and as quickly as possible. Then when it's gone, you want another one PRONTO! So 3 Commandants and 3 Necrovalleys is really the only way to do this. Try it out, there are a lot of cards ran in 3's so there are only 18 different cards in this deck. It's also relatively cheap, the only cards you might have trouble with are the Necrovalleys, Chiefs, Spies and Circles. Once you've got those under your belt you're laughing.

Send your questions, comments, etc. to cjrwaud@cogeco.ca. Please no hate mail, I'm really a nice guy once you get to know me.
