Deck Fix: Terror from the Abyss - Master of Shadows

 

 

Hello, Pojoers. Master of Shadows (that's me) has another deck fix for you. Let's just cut to the chase. Here's the message: 

Hey
i have seen you do deck fixes quite a bit and was wondering if you could help me with mine. My deck is designed to lockdown Monarchs, DAD and zombies. im on a relativly tight budget and cant afford cards such as Jinzo.
 
Tiger Pen (40)
 
Monsters (24)
 
Mystic Swordsman LV6
Guardian Angel Joan
 
King Tiger Wanghu x3
Mystic Swordsman LV2 x3
Mystic Swordsman LV4 x3
DrillRoid
Tenkabito Shien x2
Elemental Hero Wildheart x2
A Cat Of Ill Omen x3
Giant Rat x3
Nano Breaker x2
 
Spells (12)
 
Book of Moon x2
Ground Collapse x3
Magical Mallet x2
Monster Reborn
Giant Trunade
Heavy Storm
Level Limit Area B
Snatch Steal
 
Traps (4)
 
Gravity Bind
Royal Decree x2
Ojama Trio 
 
The Aim of the deck is to stop my opponent altogether, or at least make him put his cards in defense positionso they get stopped with my mystic swordsmen and drillroid. King Tiger stops All searchers and treeborn frogs etc whilst tenkabito and wildheart stop my opponents traps and also break through my own gravity bind.
 
Hope you can help

Oh, goody. Another broke person like myself. Something to try and lock down the opponent, shutting down whatever they can do. While everything seems to fit here, it seems that things don't exactly fit the purpose you had in mind for this deck, so let's see what I can do. 

Cards to cut: 

- 1 Guardian Angel Joan

- 1 Mystic Swordsman LV4

- 1 A Cat of Ill Omen

- 2 Nanobreaker

- 1 Ground Collapse

- 1 Giant Trunade

- 1 Level Limit - Area B

- 1 Snatch Steal (banned)

- 1 Gravity Bind 

I cut 10 cards. Wow. That's low for what I've been doing lately. That doesn't give me much to work with, but I'll do what I can. Guardian Angel Joan was out of place here. Mystic LV4 at three is excessive. Same with A Cat of Ill Omen, especially with so few targets for it. Nanobreaker just hurts level 3s and those are only common in Six Samurai and Gladiator Beasts, and in GB decks, the level 3s won't be on the field long enough, so Nanobreaker will usually be pointless. Ground Collapse at three is the same way. Giant Trunade won't help much and Level Limit will slow your attacks while your opponent will have plenty of answers for it. Gravity Bind, too. 

Now for what to add: 

+ 1 Neo-Spacian Grand Mole

+ 1 Mystic Swordsman LV6

+ 2 Exiled Force

+ 1 Sangan

+ 1 Snipe Hunter

+ 1 Mystical Space Typhoon

+ 1 Premature Burial

+ 2 Limit Reverse

+ 2 Divine Wrath / Magic Drain / Seven Tools of the Bandit 

I added 12 back in, bringing you to 42. Neo-Spacian Grand Mole to help clear the path for your other monsters. The extra Mystic LV6 will help to force your opponent against the wall, especially with Book of Moon to help you with that. Exiled Force for more monster removal. Sangan to search out critical pieces. Snipe Hunter to destroy your opponent's cards. Mystical Space Typhoon to replace Giant Trunade. Premature Burial and Limit Reverse as revival. The Counter Traps to protect yourself from whatever. I know many of the monsters I added will conflict with King Tiger Wanghu, but they're best for when you don't have King Tiger on the field. 

Royal Oppression could also help here in locking down the opponent's Special Summons, especially since most decks rely on them. 

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. This was a tough one, as you can see. Enjoy it. If it's still not doing what you want it to do, try changing your playing style with this deck. If you're finding that you can't get to your cards fast enough, try adding: 

Hand Destruction

Dark World Dealings

Reckless Greed (in threes, of course)

Card Destruction

Morphing Jar 

Those are just suggestions. Others include Legacy of Yata-Garasu and Jar of Greed. Have fun. Questions, comments, etc. can be sent to darkdestructionv30@yahoo.com 

Until next time....
