Carrot Analysis: Cyber-Stein
December 27, 2006

           
I’m using “Carrot Analysis” for many things. Deck suggestions, and card analysis. “2” is still a many, isn’t it?

Banishment of Cyber-Stein surprised me greatly. I knew it was going to be banned sooner or later (I’ll explain in a bit), but I never even dreamed it would be before March.

I’ve commented once on Cyber-Stein as “5000 LP for +1.” Theoretically, that ought be banned right away, since it generated advantage upon summoning, similar to Chaos Sorcerer (banned!). It also ended games soon, with assists of Last Will + Exiled Force/Zaborg + Cyber Dragon.

Splashed Cyber-Stein caused a lot of troubles for tournaments. Waboku/Kuriboh is great against Stein-based deck, but chances are, it will be dead in your hand or useless when Monarchs instead of expected 2-star machine rushes at you.

However, I believe that Cyber-Stein is gone because it’s ability to end the game when the deck is devoted for 1 purpose: win before your opponent does.

You may agree or disagree that Stein FTK/OTK decks are really incredible. It isn’t. Stein FTK/OTK bases itself on luck. Thing is, you have high odds of winning the game, even if Waboku/Threatening Roar is sidedecked for game 2.

So, variations of Cyber-Stein kept evolving. Usually, Nimble Momonga/Poison of the Old Man increased LP to the point that Cyber-Stein can even occasionally summon 2 (99% Ryu Senshi if LP went over 11000 to negate Ring/Torrential/Mirror Force/Sakuretsu Armor) I, on the other hand, worked on this deck for months. Cyber-Stein is gone. It saddens me for a good reason. Take a look at this.

Secret Project – Carrotizer:

Monsters: 16

3 Cyber-Stein
1 Sangan
1 Breaker the Magical Warrior
1 Magician of Faith
1 Treeborn Frog
1 Spirit Reaper
2 Exiled Force
1 D.D. Warrior Lady
1 Morphing Jar
3 Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World
1 Sillva, Warlord of Dark World

Spell: 22

1 Heavy Storm
2 Giant Trunade
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Graceful Charity
3 Dark World Lightning
1 United We Stand
1 Card Destruction
1 Limiter Removal
3 Megamorph
1 Last Will
1 Scapegoat
1 Nobleman of Crossout
2 Reasoning
1 Mage Power
2 Monster Gate

Trap: 2

1 Ring of Destruction
1 Ceasefire

Sidedeck: 15

3 Nimble Momonga
1 Reasoning
1 Monster Gate
2 Sillva, Warlord of Dark World
1 Swords of Revealing Light
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force
1 Night Assailant
1 Dark Magician of Chaos
1 Magic Cylinder
1 Premature Burial
1 Big Bang Shot

Believe or not, this deck ended game in 2 turns maximum when put against typical Monarch set up, 8 out of 10. 2 were even close race of getting the right cards. I was certain that this could win against Monarchs as easily as drawing and playing cards right.

Cyber-Stein + Dark World. The fusion of the most anti-CC types. Maybe I’m a bit biased, and I am, but try this deck with YVD. You will be surprised how fast you can win 1st game, and 2nd game is just a matter of 1 or 2 more turns. Reasoning often brings out Cyber-Stein if you don’t have one, and if you do, Goldd or Sillva pops out more than half the time.

Monster Gate guaranteed Attack Position Stein won’t go to waste by recycling it for Sangan/Frog/Dark World/Exiled Force, and if needed, other monsters, or even Goat could be tribute for the spell.

Card Destruction became from –1 to +1, +2, or +3 once in a while. Graceful became +1, but most importantly, 3 Dark World Lightning cards became valuable M/T removal that could be used to Special Summon Dark World arsenals.

This was the deck that I was going to use for the Regionals in January, but unfortunately I will have to find a new extreme anti-meta deck. If you have time, build this deck and just see how easy and well Dark World cards work with FTK weapons. You’ll be amazed.

Happy holidays and merry Christmas to you all, and for me with bittersweet feeling for Cyber-Stein, see you next year!
