ThatGuy's Shot: Proper Deck Building - That Guy
Welcome to ThatGuy's Shot! Just a
thing I've started in which I may introduce new deck
ideas, concepts, strategies, etc. So if you wanna
learn, refresh, or just laugh when I make a mistkae,
here's the place to. So here it is, my first article
in the line of shots.
On a side note, it's been awhile since my last
article, partly due to school and a lot of action on
the message boards. I know I said I'd post my deck
but I changed my mind due to other reasons.
Proper Deck Building
I know people have different ways of making a deck
such as the objective, strategy, and reason. Well
good, I'm on the right track
But aside from that, these are just a few steps
anyone, whether it be newbie or master of the game,
could benefit from.
First off, figure out why you're playing a
children's card game, cause you're a man, you're
40...No, this isn't Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged or Mike
Gundy. The first step is to figure out how the deck
will fight, for fun or for competition? Once you
have that established, move on to what your deck
will actually be. Is it a Gravekeeper's, Magent
Warrior, what? After that, figure out how your deck
will play out, or as otherwise put, the objective.
OTK? Effect win? Beatdown? Make every other deck
look good? Pick one for the sake of picking one...or
making your deck and then move on to the
Now here comes the 5 most important rules ever...in
deck building. First, consult the banned/restricted
list. Yes John, Yata has been gone for quite some
time now. Next, make sure your deck has one, count
it, one central focus. Demise will never be
brought out if Manju has to fetch Don Zaloog (which
it can't). Thirdly (that a word?), have an answer to
the main threat. Don't go into a tournament thinking
you are going to beat a Burn Deck when all you got
is level 4 monsters. Fourth, take a nap before you
continue, because organizing cards is one 4311 of a
task. Fifth and certainly the least, leave room for
change. There's nothing worse than taking apart a
deck that you put your heart (btw, Change of Heart
is banned) into. So with all that + some of your own
style, you got yourself a deck that can correct
itself, has a focus, has a plan, and won't lose
every duel...unless you actually picked the option
of making every other deck look good.
Now that you have your deck, go duel someone and
when you lose, tell them to never go to the TCG
Strategies forum in the Yu-Gi-Oh section 'cause
will be dishin out the advice yo. So thanks for
listenting...I mean reading.
