Rj's Deck Garage

The Monarch Deck
 

Welcome back the good 'ole garage! I am back today with a very interesting deck. It's a Monarch Deck! Monarch Decks have been around since...oh I don't know...Soul Of The Duelist? But now they are better then ever because of even more great monarchs to choose from. Before we just had Zaborg The Thunder Monarch, and then Mobius The Frost Monarch, both of these monarchs, are, in my opinion, the best.

The first Monarch deck I have heard of, on the record was made by Pojo's own Tourney Report Writer, RegnR8. I vaguely remember emailing RegnR8 a few times to give suggestions on his version of the Monarch Deck, some of which he used! So, me fixing this reader's monarch deck, kinda feels like a legacy ;D.

Our good friend Jean sent it in, let's check out his email!

Hey there,
I read your articles on

Pojo.com and I found them to be interesting. I was wondering if you could fix up my monarch deck. Just tell me what I should take out and what I should put in. The deck should stay its original size of 40 cards if you don't mind. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Strategy: Monarch beatdown

About me: My name is Jean (its pronounced John) and I'm 17 years old. I've been playing the yu~gi~oh! TCG since it first came out. The way I play the game is very aggressive, I show my opponent no mercy unless they are my friend. I don't like to yell or get to over confident when I duel. I don't like to discriminate good duelists from the bad ones...I consider them all to be the same( like everybody knows...you may have the suckiest deck in the world but it doesn't matter...its how you use it). If you want to know more about me, IM me on SmileOfOblivion ( that's my Aim screen name).

Well there Jean, you have a nice deck to model off of, Monarch decks are always fun to use, I know that, and I already have many ideas on how to fix this deck, so lets hop to...

Monsters x17

Mobius The Frost Monarch x2
Zaborg The Thunder Monarch x2
Sangan
Breaker The Magical Warrior
Tribe Infecting Virus
Mystic Tomato x2
Spirit Reaper
Sinister Serpent
D.D. Warrior Lady
Night Assailant x2
Morphing Jar
Magician Of Faith x2

Well, that's the monsters. As you can see, the deck opens strongly with cards like Mystic Tomato, which is in 2's here, Spirit Reaper, and D.D. Warrior Lady just to name a few. We have Morphing Jar and Night Assailant (x2) in the deck, which, if played by a skilled hand, will provide you with overwhelming amounts of resources.

Magics x17

Pot Of Greed
Graceful Charity
Delinquent Duo
Nobleman Of Crossout x2
Smashing Ground
Snatch Steal
Premature Burial
Mystical Space Typhoon
Heavy Storm
Scapegoat x2
Metamorphosis x2
Book Of Moon x2
Card Destruction

This is a VERY nice Magic lineup for the deck, we have all the usual baddies, Pot, Graceful, Duo. Along with a lone Smashing Ground, one seems good, seeing as how we have a lot of monster removal already in the monster and trap line-up. I supplied the deck with 2 Scapegoat's, and then 2 MetaMorphosis to abuse them. We have a large number of Level 1 monsters, and don't forget Zaborg, who will fetch you a nice Dark Balter The Terrible. Last but not least, Mobius The Frost Monarch will bring out a Ryu Senshi, which, in my opinion, is am alittle superior to Balter in this format.

Traps x6
 
Mirror Force
Torrential Tribute
Call Of The Haunted
Ring Of Destruction
Sakuretsu Armor x2

So, now the deck is completed. This line-up looks rather pricey, with the Morphing Jar, and the Royal Decree, but let us not forget about gods gift to Yugioh, Dark Beginnings 2. Oh how rentsy Reprint Sets are ;).

That's it for today, I thank the readers for reading my articles, and Jean for sending in his deck today for me to fix! If you have any questions or comments, you know where to send 'em!

-Rj

PS: I also thank my readers who don't support the lies and rumors that are cycling around about me.
