Dark Paladin's Yu-Gi-Oh! Dimension
"Windy Days ..."

2.22.05

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all!

Well, let's get a few things out of the way before we start today's article, shall we? First off, the following people answered one if not both of my trivia questions correctly. The names are in NO particular order:

Ben Rosales
Digifan12
Travis Boissier
Kyle Theaker
DragonKingG
Kyle Johnson
Master of Dragon Knight
Sage
GuitarX

Congrats and well done to all of you. I guess I'll have to start making these trivia questions a bit harder...hmm?

Secondly, thanks to all the loyal supporters of my banned list suggestions and for all those who didn't flip out or call me an idiot or worse derogatory names. It meant a lot to be able to express my opinion and not be hung :)

Thirdly, it's Tuesday, and you know what that means? It's TWO for TUESDAY at Subway! Yeah! I love Subway, of course, eat as you will...

Today I'm not constructing a deck, but I'm going to review one that was submitted to me anonymously by someone who would just like to be called Seto_Kaiba_Fan_05.

This is a unique deck and one I've wanted to construct for a while. It's a Wind themed beatdown deck! Isn't that nifty, Wind and Beatdown in the same sentence.
Sadly, Seto_Kaiba_Fan_05 says she has only marginal success with this deck, so lets take a look at her deck!

Monsters x19

Tribute

Jinzo
Mobius the Frost Monarch
Luster Dragon #2 x2

Non-Tribute

Slate Warrior x3
Silpheed
Spear Dragon x2
Breaker the Magical Warrior
Luster Dragon x3
Grey Wing
Harpie's Brother x2
Tribe Infecting Virus
Cyber Jar

As you can see, most of my Wind monsters are beatdown. Slate Warrior can instantly become a 2400 attacker and he's Level 4. Spear Dragon and Luster Dragon add trample and field control. Breaker adds control being a 1900 beatstick until I use his special ability. He's obviously also there to help nuke a potential spell or trap threat. Cyber Jar and Tribe Infecting Virus are my backups in case I need a quick out or I'm in a bind.

Spells x 14

Rising Air Current x3
Butterfly Dagger--Elma
Axe of Despair
Rush Recklessly
Pot of Greed
Mage Power
Fairy Meteor Crush
Big Bang Shot x2
Confiscation
Card Destruction
Swords of Revealing Light

Most of my spells are equip cards. These help to quickly power up my monsters to allow me to do some potential swarming while clearing my opponent's field.
Fairy Meteor Crush and Big Bang Shot are for trample and Swords adds a little defense.

Traps x7

Call of the Haunted
Waboku
Magic Cylinder
Ring of Destruction
Solemn Judment
Magic Jammer
Royal Command

My traps are pretty self-explanatory. However, notice I include Royal Command, how often do you see that? It's to help protect me from my opponent's Jars and Man Eater Bugs and the like. What do you think of my deck Dark Paladin?

Well, this is a neat deck, hmm? Let's start with originality. For the mere fact of combining Wind and Beatdown, you get a 1701/5. To those of you who had this idea, don't be angry, I'm not giving her credit like she's the first and only one to have done this...

Effectiveness/Success

I took this deck card for card to a local card shop this previous weekend and took third place. So, the deck is reasonably successful, but I found it seems to be a "you need the right card at the right tine or else" deck. However, most decks are even though a deck should be able to go on whatever card drawn.

Effectiveness/Success 3.75/5

Overall, I'm giving this deck an 85/100. It has some potential, and can be dangerous. Well done Seto_Kaiba_Fan_05!

Well, that's all for today, but here's a few tidbits before I go...

First, I don't know if Coin Flip will read this article EVER, but I think he and Tranorix always saying "Rentsy" is cool. Cool enough I want to take it and start saying it myself, but I won't out of respect to the two of you. (Unless I'm given permission???)

Secondly, what type of deck would you like to see built next?

Fire Deck
Spirit Deck (WITHOUT Yata)
Lifepoint gain/maintain deck
Or any other deck you'd like to see built, just ask, I try to get around to them

Lastly, it's time for today's Yugioh trivia question

In the episode "Legendary Heroes Part 3" Yugi and Kaiba summon Dragon Master Knight...However, when Yugi and Joey are dueling all 5 of the "Big 5" at the same time, what does Lector call Dragon Master Knight. Give me the exact name he calls that monster with your name so I know who to give credit to. This one may be a bit tougher...I hope.

As always, feel free to e-mail me with anything @ tsearcy@lssu.edu

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
