Deck Fix: Phantom Go Boom - Master of Shadows

 

Hello, everyone. Master of Shadows has another deck fix for you, and this one seems rather interesting. Let's see what we have here.... 

Hey,
 
I kind of new to the game.  I mean playing wise i been collecting 4 years.  But now just really started to play.
i really like the hold the Phantom of chaos and Sky scourge norleras cards .  So i'm trying to make a deck around them  but....
It get to the job done most of the time. It just needs something ya know.  Can you help?
 
Thanks, D.

2 Foolish Burial
1 Premature burial

2 Pigonholing books of spell( just so when it all goes BooooM, i want just be top decking)
 

This seems rather interesting, trying to use Phantom of Chaos for Sky Scourge Norleras. Let's see what I can do for this deck. 

Cards to cut: 

- 1 Morphing Jar

- 2 Wulf, Lightsworn Beast

- 2 Phantom Skyblaster

- 2 Dark Grepher

- 1 Card Destruction

- 2 Pidgeonholing Books of Spell 

I cut 10 cards from this deck. Morphing Jar because it will also replenish the opponent's hand, something that would actually defeat the purpose here as the purpose is to somewhat reduce things to simple topdecking where you have the advantage. Wulf had to go because your only means of using it is through Foolish Burial, something we'd rather use on Norleras for quick access to its effect by Phantom of Chaos. Phantom Skyblaster is just taking up space. While it does provide field presence, it does nothing to advance your deck any further. Dark Grepher will be replaced with something else that will help give you access to that Norleras in the Graveyard without losing something from your hand. Card Destruction has better alternatives. Pidgeonholing Books of Spell just makes sure you know what your next draws are. Instead of knowing, why not just give us extra draws, which is something I'll keep in mind. 

Cards to add: 

+ 2 Armageddon Knight

+ 1 Card Trooper

+ 2 Hand Destruction

+ 2 Burial from a Different Dimension

+ 1 A Feather of the Phoenix 

I added 8 cards, bringing you to 42. Armageddon Knight is to dump that Norleras into the Graveyard. Card Trooper helps with that. Hand Destruction helps you dump dead cards in hand (like Norleras) to dig through your deck for something. Burial from a Different Dimension can put your removed cards back in your Graveyard for another go with Phantom of Chaos. The extra A Feather of the Phoenix is to help guarantee what you draw with Norleras. The key difference between that and Pidgeonholing Books of Spell is that chances are that the card you need will probably already be in the Graveyard. Yes, it requires a discard, but that card would be dying to Norleras anyway, so why not use it for something? 

I did what I could. Good luck with your introduction into the game. I hope it all works out for you. That's all I have for now. Comments, etc. can be sent to darkdestructionv30@yahoo.com

Until next time....
