Zell's Deck of the Week
Discarding Dragon's Strike Again!

02.17.04 - Before I begin with this article, I must say that I am sorry about the Forced Requisiton article error, if you read it when it was still posted, I clearly stated I had about 10-20 minutes to write it, I actually only had 10. So, you can say that I just overlooked a few things. And about last weeks, business got me again.

Anywho, on with the article! The name may baffle a few people, but it is entirely true to its word. Not many people actually know the effects of Gray Wing and Spirit Ryu, but those that do may think it is too situational, or just not playable. Well, Austin Swan begs to differ. He found that these cards can be even more powerful then say.... Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning!

Austin Swan writes :

This deck really focuses on Super Rejuvenation with Gray Wing, and Spirit Ryu. It abuses the effect of Stamping Destruction :

[Monsters]
1.) Tyrant Dragon
2.) Tyrant Dragon
3.) Spear Dragon
4.) Spear Dragon
5.) Spear Dragon
6.) Gray Wing
7.) Gray Wing
8.) Spirit Ryu
9.) Spirit Ryu
10.) Spirit Ryu
11.) Troop Dragon
12.) Troop Dragon
13.) Troop Dragon
14.) Breaker the Magical Warrior
15.) Tribe Infecting Virus
16.) Fiber Jar

[Spells]
17.) Super Rejuvenation
18.) Super Rejuvenation
19.) Stamping Destruction
20.) Stamping Destruction
21.) Stamping Destruction
22.) Book of Moon
23.) Book of Moon
24.) Noble of Crossout
25.) Noble of Crossout
26.) Painful Choice
27.) Monster Reincarnation
28.) Monster Reincarnation
29.) Premature Burial
30.) Change of Heart
31.) Snatch Steal
32.) Heavy Storm
33.) Mystical Space Typhoon
34.) Pot of Greed

[Traps]
35.) Call of the Haunted
36.) Ring of Destruction
37.) Torrential Tribute
38.) Sakuretsu Armor
39.) Sakuretsu Armor
40.) Sakuretsu Armor

Sorry about the annoying numbers, but that's just how Austin Swan decided to send me his deck. Ok, let's take a look at the staples:

Gray Wing - Obvious, but it is important. When you discard a card from your hand he can attack twice. Now, if your opponent currently has nothing on their field, this guy can deal over 1/4th of your opponents original Life Points!

Spirit Ryu - Again obviousm but this little bugger is tons better then Gray Wing. Gray Wing is limited to the weak stats of himself, while as Spirit Ryu gains 1000 attack power for every dragon you discard, if you're top decking bad against a Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning, and you have oh let's say 3 unusable dragons in your hand, and you draw this guy. You'll literally fall out of your seat laughing at the fact that a Level 4 1000/1000 dragon, using its own ability, defeat a Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning. And it's a common!

All the other Dragons - They are food for Spirit Ryu and Gray Wing...

Super Rejuvination - This is the main abuser of the deck, when you discard a dragon, you can draw again in the end phase. This just allows for extra draw power, and can be helpful in a tight situation

Stamping Destruction - The best Spell/Trap remover for Dragon based decks, destroy on card and your opponent takes 500 damage, 1/16th their original Life Points!

That's about it for the staples, and again in the staples we introduced the combo's. So, again, I'll leave this section out.

Deck review time!

Originality - I'd say this deck gets a 9/10 in originality, noone to my knowledge has had the guts to attempt this deck!

Playability - The downfall... The deck can be playable and can't be at the same time. You have to rel on draws alot, so... 6/10 here.

Top Decking - The plus!!! Any card you draw helps the deck, 10/10.

Conclusion - The deck is fun and semi-playable, so it recieves a 83.3%! Congradulations Austin Swan!

If you would like to submit your deck for Deck of the Week send it to DaRkFiReStAtR@aol.com, the Subject line should read : ' Deck of the Week! ' , Include your name, a description of how your deck runs and the strategies it has, and of coarse your Deck list.
