Karakuri ... Oh Yeah!!

Next week I'm gonna get myself a new deck and YES!! its Karakuri!! No idea whats Karakuri? Its Mechanical if translated. But thats not the specifics you want I guess. Its a new archtype from Star Strike Blast and they are machines!!

We needed more Machine archtypes!! seriously ... we do ...

Enough with that, I find the Karakuri cool cause their names and effects. 1 thing most Karakuri have in common is that :

1. Their names are in numbers. Well, they ARE robots, so, manufacturing codes?
2. When they are selected an attack target, they are switch into defense. Oh!
3. They have their own Mirror Force thats quite easily activated unlike Koaki Meiru's. And ITS A BOMB!!
4. They MUST attack if possible, but they are (generally) quite small.

Off to printing and test playing ...

Wa-Lah!! ... or maybe ... wA-LA!! ... or WAALA ... how do you spell this ...?

2x Cyber Dragon
3x Karakuri Warrior 6318 (beat stick)

2x Karakuri Resident
2x Bottomless Traphole
2x Zero Gravity
2x Dust Tornado

1x Torrential Tribute

1x Solemn Judgment

Extra (15):

2x Karakuri Shogun Burei
2x Scrap Dragon
1x Scrap Twin Dragon
7x Generic Syncro
1x Chimera Tech Fortress

Play style :

Not unlike Machina Gadgets but they are a lot more tricks up this deck's sleeve. But the fact that the boss is not as powerful as Machina Fortress is a minus.

Lets see, they have their own Searcher AND Floater.

Their own tuner that can change its own battle position (with its position changing effect).

Their own Snowman Eater that CAN attack and CAN get rid of Stardust!!

... and a beatstick which is sorta useless aside from the fact that its a beatstick.

For spells, they have their own Gear Town and Six Samurai United. Which SPELLS advantage.

And for traps, they have their own Mirror Force and their own Crystal Raigeki (which is not exactly easy to activate).


For better builds, we would have to wait for this deck to come out next weekend, if its good, I might use it in next sunday's Trishula tourney. Or maybe I'll stick with my original plan of Scar-Red Nova ... will see.
