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.
