 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

 

May 2007
Tactics to consider - Lexaeus

 Hi, this is my first tip. The point of my tip is to provide advice to help people in winning. I have a list of a few and I'll further explain them. Here they are:

1.) Evading usual moves. Basically I experienced at my latest Regionals a peculiar event; my foe could foresee my moves. I was running 7th Monarchs. Basically, the duel was in the later stages and we both had only a few cards in our hands. He was playing defensively... I had 2 Brain Controls and a Zaborg in my hand.
What my foe did was tribute summon a Cyber Dragon face-down, knowing that I probably had a B. Control. He ends his turn and I pull a Mirror Force and set it. He sack his Dragon for Mobius to destroy Force and activates Premature Burial on his Zaborg and attacks me directly for 48; I'm now at 23lp. My turn, I draw a Reaper and set it. His turn, he pulls ring. Game win for him.
He anticipated that I had those Brain C.s in my hand and cleverly tribute-set his Dragon in order to push for a final assault. Such tactics are helpful against Monarch decks.

2.) ''The leader of the group usually has an element of surprise up his sleeve''. Usually when a person runs a deck that is strong, powerful, AND unexpected; the foe can be caught off guard. Or even a few random good cards in a ''CC-ish'' deck can surprise the opponent drop his guard. I may be incorrect but I believe Chain Strike Decks during the Stein era caught many people off guard and defeated them easily. I think the same is true with Demise, DDT, and that interesting OverGadget deck that won a past SJC with Barrel Dragon and Ancient Gear Soldiers. Those people used the element of surprise and they succeeded doing so.
I remember how many people on the Pojo message boards were like: ''What? D-Heroes and Rituals winning SJC's???'' The element of surprise is very helpful in winning provided that the cards are strong enough. I've started using the ''element of surprise'' at local tournies with favorable results. It truely works.

I hope this information helps. You can contact me at kevlilthom@aol.com
