Tricky Tricky Tech

October 5, 2007

Tech Decks Rule!
 
Tech is an interesting concept. It is generally what we add to standard decks to make them our own and adjust them to our own play style. I usually add Mobius to most decks that I play. I feel that that particular card adds a lot to those decks. SOme people prefer other cards. People also use tech in order to counter current trends in the metagame. Countering threats like Monarchs and Six Samurai can be integral to success. Thus I am taking the time to give you guys some cards that I think will be tech soon or very shortly. Here is the list:
 
Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer
Dark Bribe
White Horned Dragon
Waboku
 
 
Who You Gonna Call! The Ghostbuster!
 
Kycoo is amazing! He has 1800 ATK which will destroy most cards short of Breaker with a counter and boosted Trooper. The ATK is not the only reason that this guy is great. He removes from play two of your opponents monsters from the graveyard when he inflicts damage to an opponent's lifepoints. Know any monsters you would like to remove from your opponent's graveyard? Treeborn Frog? Malicious? Dasher? Or even any monster at all? This in particular works against Zombies as they require so much recursion to make their strategies work. If that effect didn't give you a reason to run this card, then his effect of preventing your opponent from removing from play cards will. Book of Life and Malicious are the main targets here, but D-fissure just dies when it is played as Kycoo negates it. There are even more combos with Kycoo, but I don't have the space to list them all. Come up with your own strategies and let us all know!
 
 
What's Really Happening in the Capitol...
 
Of all of the cards that I have on my list now, most of you will by now be familiar with Dark Bribe. It allows you to counter ANY Spell or Trap that your opponent plays, and all at the cost of allowing your opponent to draw a card. This is part of a disruption strategy, part of the family of cards that Solemn Judgement by now has almost solely represented. This card is even better. This is because of the fact that is relatively cheap compared to Solemn Judgement which requires half of your lifepoints. Whats even better is that it can be used to completely disrupt your opponent's strategy. Nothing is more priceless than negating the SOlemn a burn player just paid 2000 lp to activate. This is THE tech card this format, so grab your two and be happy.
 
 
That's One Honkin' Big Dragon!
 
You guys have heard me rave about White Horned before, but never like this. Many strategies revolve upon spells being in the graveyard, but that is not the reason to play this guy. He is the biggest feasable Tribute Monster out there. Great Maju Garzett is close, but just not useful enough. WHite Horned gets up to 3700 ATK points, and mid game your opponent will have 5 spells in their grave, but not necessarily a trap to defend themselves. This guy gets one or two hits in and it's game. I REALLY want someone to break this card, especially as it is now coming out as an Ultra rare promotional card. Sexy!
 
 
Wabbu, Wabbu, Waboku?
 
I have also raved about Waboku. It is a great card that will take care of most kinds of decks that relyon attacking. Six Samurai cry and zombies moan. However the great thing about this card is not only it's total lifesaving ability, but the fact that it can also be used offensively. Play it to keep your Monarch and then take out an opposing Kokki or Jinzo and ensure that your heavy hitter survives the attack thanks to Waboku's protective barrier. This card single handedly won me a local tourney on Tuesday, as it stalled Six Samurai and Zombies long enough for me to mount a comeback. On a related note, Swords of Revealing Light is amazing, and you should play it, as it is still a great card that has yet to be surpassed.
 
Well that's enough yaking for now. Do you have any tech ideas? If so I would love to hear them. raptor1k@hotmail.com is where I'll be for advice on decks, cards and pretty much anything else.
 
Thanks for reading!
