Regnr8's Anti-meta Monarchs
Tournament Report for 6/25-26/05
Welcome to this week's edition of the tournament report! I
hope this writing finds you well and winning!
I have really gotten a lot of email on my Total Body Control
deck and I appreciate it. The suggestions are helpful but, I
think I've put that deck in the binder because it caused so
much controversy. How? you ask? I'll tell you. I got a ton
of email about it and the deck showed up on another ygo site
in a deck depot and it pretty much got blasted by all the
people there. Some said the deck was "horrible" and
proceeded to trash it by pointing out all the cards that
WEREN'T in the deck like your staple Mirror Force and MST
and Breaker and blah, blah, blah. The deck was simply copied
and pasted by someone. No one knows why or how I built the
deck so, naturally, they felt safe to trash it. I don't go
to that site very often but, I just happened to stunble
across it in the deck depot and was prett disappointed at
peoples postings on it. Not only was the deck ripped off was
hung out in front of all the "duelists" to see without any
background info on it at all. I didn't appreciate it. The
deck was built mostly for fun and to see how badly I could
abuse Brain Control, it really didn't deserve to get ripped
like it did. I knew the deck's faults when I built it, but
pointing them out like they're some huge unintentional error
on my part is unfair. Enough of that.
I decided to go back to the deck I know best, the Monarchs.
Although I have abandoned all Monarchs but Mobius, I still
consider it a Monarch deck. I suppose I should change the
name to the Anti-meta Mobius deck but, it doesn't have the
same ring to it.

The main deck starts out real "tech" and I use the side deck
to make it a little more well, like all the other decks out
there. If I lose the first game really badly, I'll usually
switch all the tech out.

My daughter finally came today but decided not to enter the
tournament. Oh well. She worked really hard for a few weeks
and saved up enough money to buy a PSP and she played it
most of the time.
I noticed a couple of new folks today and a guy who hasn't
been coming lately. The two new players travelled about an
hour to get there so, that was a nice trek for them to come
get the behinds whooped. LoL.
MONARCHS VS SLOW STALL BURN
This was one of the new guys. My reputation preceeds me
because he had already heard that I was one of the more
difficult people to beat. He hemmed and hawed about which
deck he was going to use today and finally decided after a
couple of minutes.
GAMES 1 & 2
Both games went pretty much the same for me. He activated
Toll, Chain Energy, LLAB and Gravity Binds but, I played and
attacked through the Toll and Chain Energy because I was
doing more damage to him than he was doing to me. Mobius
finally comes out and wipes out his S/T zone and I win. The
second game Injection Fairy Lily just kills him.
I didn't know this until after the match, but the deck had
no monsters in it. Cool. I gave him props for that.
He said he knew he shouldn't have used that particular deck
against me and asked if I would duel him with another deck.
I agreed. I beat it quite easily. He asked if he could use
another deck. I agreed. I beat that one easily, too. LoL.
MONARCHS VS BEATDOWN
GAME 1 & 2
He hits me with some early damage with and Archfiend Soldier
and a Giant Orc. I draw a Scapegoat with a couple of
Metamorphosis in my hand and a Royal Decree set. I morph a
token to TER and take his Orc, when he tries to activate any
traps, I activate the Decree and I have him pretty much shut
down. He uses Snatch Steal in both games and in one, I end
up with 12,800LP. Injection Fairy Lily with 12,800LP to play
with is almost unstoppable. Too funny.
MONARCHS VS BURN
This was the other "new" guy.
My first turn Duo takes out his hand and he plays
defensively the rest of the duel and my Light of
Intervention stops all his flips and I win fairly easily.
Just for grins, I put in the Tigers and the two Nobleman of
Crossout along with the Light of Intervention. I NoC his
first face down monster, then activate Light of Intervention
in his next draw phase when I have a Tiger on the field and
he can't summon anything because all his monsters are below
1400 attack. He starts setting S/T cards like mad but Mobius
takes care of those and I really overpower him.
MONARCHS VS BEATDOWN
This deck is a pretty straight forward beatdown, although I
got a huge surprise.
I get Graceful in my opening hand and set a Goat and summon
He MST's my Goat, which I activate. He plays Pot and the
Vortex, of course, clearing out my field. He attacks with a
I summon Kycoo, hit his Spear, set Call of the Haunted and
end my turn.
He summons Tribe. Gosh! It's crazy luck that wins duels.
Vortex, then Tribe! What a laugh. He discards for
spellcaster, then plays Graceful. He Premature Burials
Goblin Attack Force and attacks with both and I have to take
it. Smeg. I'm probably going to lose really badly.
I Heavy his Premature, Call back a Gorilla and tribute for
Mobius for some bigger firepower and attack.
He plays Smashing Ground on my Mobius. Boy, I am really
starting to totally dislike that card. He summons a Gorilla
I stall a little with Nimbles and Scapegoats, but can't get
anything else happening. He has Breaker and a Gorilla on the
field and tribute them both for an Ancient Gear Golem!
Wahat?!!?! That was a funny surprise! Needless to say, he
starts trampling my tokens and I don't last but one more
I side deck a bunch of stuff. I take out all the tech and
replace it with all the "staple" stuff. He attacks all the
time and I think I can let my traps take care of him.
First turn he NoC's my Sangan...Once again, he gets Tribe
out, taking out my tokens and Gorilla, but this time I have
Ring set and use it.
He and I trade traps with each other for a while until he
runs out and is holding his Gear Golem with no monsters and
I win this game. It was a good duel.
I get two Scapegoat, MST, Metamorphsis and a Battle Ox in my
opening hand and manage to stay alive. We destroy each
others monsters with out Mirror Force and once again, engage
in a battle of traps and monster removal. He Smashes my
Gorilla. He Rings Injection, his TiV takes out my tokens but
he depletes his hand by doing so. A Heavy Storm takes care
of his Swords and I attack him for the win.
MONARCHS VS BEATDOWN
Wow. Beatdown seems to be the deck of choice for today. I
haven't seen BLS once though.
Total ownage. All he has is Exiled Force and he keeps
bringing it back with Premature and Call to get rid of my
monsters. As soon as he can't bring Exiled back again, my
Kycoo takes him out of the graveyard along with his Sinister
Serpent and that's all she wrote. Easy win for me. He did
draw into a terrible hand though. Awww. I'm cryin'. 8000 -
I decide not to side deck anything and it wouldn't have
mattered anyway. I get a bunch of traps and he Snatchs my
monster and tributes it for Jinzo and all I draw after that
is traps and monsters that can't take Jinzo out so I get
smashed up pretty good.
This time, I do side deck.
I open up with Delinquent Duo and take out his Graceful
Charity. Yes!! He Dust Tornado's my Swords and really starts
emptying his hand by setting a bunch of stuff. He manages to
flip his Cyber Jar but that hurt him because it gave me
every card I needed to probably win on the next turn. He
Cyber'd out 2 Marauding Captainand summoned a Gorilla but
when he attacked, I had Mirror Force ready. He activates his
Swords and I MST it on my turn and attack with Kycoo.
He summons a Gorilla and takes out my Kycoo but I Snatch it
next turn and attck him for the win.
Great! I win the tournament this week! I will admit, several
of the best players were not there this weekend so, it's
sort of a hollow victory. I do get tired of dueling the same
The second tournament was Sunday and I'm not even going to
report anything about that because, I got my booty kicked in
the first round by BLS and well, there's not much to say
about it except, I was disappointed. But, I did get to come
home early and finish Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for
XBox. It was surprisingly good. Better than I thought it
would be. It was on sale as a buy three get one free used
game deal so, I picked it up and it was fun. If your a huge
LoTR geek, you may not like it but if you're a casual fan of
both LoTR and RPG's then you might like it.
Until next time, happy dueling!
