And the winner
is...(and a nifty little contest too)
Greetings again to one and all,
First off, I would like to thank each and every one of you
who voted. Now, I was amazed with how close this was. The
top 3 decks were A Legendary Ocean, Ritual Monster XXXXX,
and Exodia Necross respectively. There were less than 10
votes separating the three decks. Anyway...
A Legendary Ocean deck hmm...I had quite the time
constructing this deck, and played around with it for many
hours. Here's what I ended up with.
*A Legendary Ocean will be referred to as ALO for the
duration of the article*
Just a quick couple of notes...
Gogiga Gagagigo is powerful with 2950 attack but being Level
8, even ALO doesn't help him. He isn't necessary for the
Also, I recommend running ALOx3 instead of some combination
of ALO and Umi. Umi isn't as good, and if you get it first,
you must get RID of it before you can play ALO.
Finally, if you send me an e-mail, calling me Dark Paladin
is fine. I find it flattering it that some of you say "Mr.
Paladin, Mr. Dark Paladin, Mr....SIR..."....Dark Paladin
will suffice. :)
Cyber Jar--This card gives you added draw power and deck
thinning. It also give you the possibility of swarming (or
being swarmmed I suppose...)
Magician of Faith x 2
She'll help bring back a lost ALO card or whatever other
spell you may have lost. She can be a valuable asset in this
deck. (Yes x2, you'll see why
If you prefer this card over Nightmare Penguin, run 2 of it
instead. The difference is an extra monster return, and no
field bonus. Or, spice things up and try to run one of each.
Nightmare Penguin x2
This card is like a cousin to Penguin Soldier. It only
returns ONE card to your opponent's hand, but gives your
monsters 200 more attack points. So, Giga Gagagigo plus
this, plus ALO equals a 2850 level 4 powerhouse :)
One of the promos from Capsule Monster Colliseum. This guy
becomes a Level 3 2000 attacker with ALO out, and 1800 Level
4 alone. He doesn't have a flip effect making him faster
then both Penguins. He merely has a discard cost.
Give him a try if you can get one.
Tribe Infecting Virius
The ONLY way I see this hurting you is IF you're playing
against ALO deck. Odds are, that isn't going to happen. He
becomes 1800 Level 3 with ALO, and he still has that rather
Sea Serpent Warrior of Darkness x3
Fairly solid on their own also, being 1800-1500 for Level 4
monsters. Or, use your 7 Colored Fishes, Giant Red Seasnakes,
whatever floats your boat :)
This is a common and easily accessible monster. It has 1850
attack points and is Level 4. ALO boosts it to a Level 3
2050 attacker. Water beatdown...
Let the water beatdown continue...2450 for 1 tribute isn't
awful, but ALO makes this guy a 2650 Level 4. Isn't that
nuts? One of these guys has quite a bit of field control,
Mobius the Frost Monarch
He matches Jinzo in terms of attack strength, and he is
still Level 5 with ALO out. Meaning, you can still cash in
on his effect. This card helps add some needed s/t control
Levia Dragon--Daedalus x2
Two of these powerhouses, plus two Giga Gagagigo is more
than enough Tribute monsters and enough field control. This
guy is the watered-down version of CED, he just doesn't do
any damage. However, a 2600 direct attack is nearly
1/3 of your opponents total lifepoints.
(small rant starting) Feel free to try your own combination
with monsters here.
I'm very well aware there is NO Legendary Frisherman, and no
Suijin. These are the monsters I chose for Tributes, so have
fun building it your way. For instance, you could try one
Giga Gagagigo, one Levia Dragon, one Legendary Fisherman,
and one Suijin. HAVE FUN, just DO NOT YELL AT ME!!! (end
A Legendary Ocean x3
Mystical Space Typhoon--What can I say? An added s/t trap
destroier hurts a deck how? Just kidding, of course, by all
means use this card.
Change of Heart--Here, this card can be used offensively or
Whether you're using it to tribute for a stronger monster (Levia)
or just to switch a Beserk Gorilla to defense mode.
Swords of Revealing Light--I found this card added some much
needed defense to the deck. I just couldn't seem to get the
right stuff fast enough :(
Nobleman of Crossout--This card adds some defense against
your opponents Cyber or Fiber Jar or Man Eater Bugs. (Also,
whatever else you happen to destroy.
This card is a nice monster reuse card. Simply put, it does
exactly as the name suggests. You can bring your Penguins
back with this and tell me that doesn't help...
Painful Choice--Now, this card is optional, but picture
this...You choose all 3 A Legendary Ocean cards and 2
Magican of Faiths. You're guarenteed to get one no matter
what happens. This will help add some speed and deck
Pot of Greed--This, like Painful Choice, will also add some
deck thinning and draw speed.
Reload/Card Destruction--Take your pick, or run both. I
actually found Card Destruction worked better in this deck
but experiment a little. Both give you a new hand.
Scapegoat--These can help you buy a little time or simply be
used as defense.
This card fits well here.
Premature Burial--It's also nice to revive a fallen monster.
Not much more to say about this card.
Monster Reincarnation--I found this card fit beautifully in
this deck. Since some cards (Tribe Infecting Virus, Abyss
Soldier, etc.) have discard costs, activate this, then (TIV
or Abyss's) effect, then at least you get a monster back too
Mirage of Nightmare--Now, some of you are going to say,
Mirage of Nightmare AND Painful Choice? Well, yes, I believe
this deck should have both. Again, this greatly speeds up
the deck and is good for your discards.
This adds some massive field clearing to (hopefully) give
you some field advantage. Use it wisely so you don't end up
getting swarmed however.
7 Tools of the Bandit
This handy trap should be kept on standby just in case your
opponent tries to Magic Jammer (or whatnot) your ALO.
A little added protection never hurts, and I suggest running
2 or 3 of these as opposed to Tornado Wall. Tornado Wall is
ONLY useful when Umi or ALO is on the field. Otherwise, it's
dead weight in your hand, and on the field. (Again, play
with it, see what works for YOU!)
Ring of Destruction/Magic Cylinder
A RoD won't hurt this deck in my opinion. I see it as a
great game winner after you summon your Levia. Magic
Cylinder goes the same way. I used both in the deck I
play-tested, and I was glad I had them.
Call of the Haunted--I enjoy running this, and another from
of Monster renewal.
This gives you a nice looking deck of 41 cards with a decent
ratio. Let me know how it goes for anyone who tries it out.
*****AND NOW--TIME FOR--A CONTEST FOR THE FANS--SO READ
CAREFULLY AND ENJOY*****
Now, here is my little contest and put some deep, serious
thought into this. I am giving you all until this Friday,
February 4th at 12:00 p.m. to give me the most original deck
idea you can think of. I am not giving you any choices, so
think hard. Think of any monster, or any card for that
matter, you'd like a deck built around. The card with the
highest count will win and I will build a deck around it.
That's all for now
As always, feel free to contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I am answering all e-mails, I got a bit lagged over the
weekend with work, (24 hours in 3 days) so I'm getting back
to them as promptly as possible.
You stay class, planet Earth
