Gimme-A-Card Contest Results!
July 23, 2009

A little while ago I started up a contest on the forums to get a card picked from the Pojo veterans as to what card they would most like a deck to be made around. The early leader was Deep Sea Diva, but picking up steam at the end was Dark Dust Spirit. For those of you who do not know what DDS does, here is the effect text:

DB2-EN217 Dark Dust Spirit
Common - Dark Beginning 2

Stats: Zombie/Spirit Level 6 ATK2200 DEF/1800
Card #: DB2-EN217
Found In: Dark Beginning 2
Description: This card cannot be Special Summoned. This card returns to the owner's hand during the End Phase of the turn that this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up. If this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up, destroy all face-up monsters on the field except this card.


As was the agreement in the site, here is a list of the people that voted
for the card:
 
blue_yami-91
dkates
25Strat
Godzilla_Magnum
PurpleSwan
thatisstupid1212
King_Atlantis
Lexaeus
Kurosaki_Kun
 
Now the deal was that I would go ahead and make a deck that is based off of this card. As it is a Zombie, it seemed appropriate to put it into a Zombie deck, which is somehwere where it can also get some fodder for tributing. So without further ado, I present to you the DustSpirit Devastator!

I'm the Best There Is

Well, the deck is certainly interesting to say the least. The zombie engine allows you to have constant monsters on the field as well as develop hand presence to make up for the tributes of DDS. Zombie Master, Pyramid Turtle, Goblin Zombie and Mezuki are all monsters that provide a little extra oomph when you absolutely need to play DDS for the win.

Book of Life and Creature Swap are amazing at ruining your opponent's strategy as they both take away cards from your opponent and allow you to grow your own army. Card of Safe Return and Gold Sarcophagus get you to the cards that you need asap so that you can go off befor eyour opponent can react.

Divine Wrath is mainly to stop Stardust, but also works against Summoner Monk and any other monster effect and is rather costless considering that the deck is all about gaining back cards from Special Summoning Zombies. The standard slew of traps is here, even CCV as I can abuse Plaguspreader and Reaper to pretty much get off CCV whenever I want to.

This is by no means a perfect deck, but the experimentation with Zombies is definitely something to work into with the new format coming up and maybe some of their stuff getting unlimited. The purpose of this article was to stretch my, and your, imagination to think outside of the top 4 decks right now.

That is all for this article, you can reach me at raptor1k@hotmail.com for any questions or ideas. Be sure to put YGO in the title so that I don't miss it.

Stay thirsty my friends!
GZ
