Sabers update

I wasn't doing any reading this morning so I took my deck box and modded my sabers for the format. Not that it wasn't playing on the March banned list or anything, but since I see Grave BF and Samurais are THE deck to beat in Asian format, and my sabers being my main Asian format deck, decided to tune my deck to do better against both these decks.

In case your wondering, I have Mondays off since I have class on Saturday, fair trade I guess.

Anyway, Samurai and BF took 7 out of 8 seats in the Singaporean Qualifiers yesterday, the remaining was Junk Doppel (which is amazing considering he didn't have his Librarian with him at that time). But the numbers of those 2 decks overwhelm all the others.

Samurai ain't that big a problem for my sabers, but Grave BF are. Lets see what I can do.

monster (19):

3 XX-saber Faultroll
3 XX-saber Emmersblade
3 XX-saber Fullhelmknight
2 XX-saber Regigura
2 X-saber Pashuul
2 X-saber Airbellum
2 Giant Rat
2 Card Trooper

spell (8):

2 Mystic Space Typhoon
1 Giant Turnade
1 Dark Hole
1 One-for-One
1 Foolish Burial
1 Book of Moon
1 Level Limit Area B

trap (13):

3 Gottom's Emergency Call
2 Dust Tornado
2 Bottomless Traphole
2 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Mirror Force
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Call of the Haunted

side (15):

3 Kinetic Soldier
1 Cyber Dragon
3 Light Imprisoning Mirror
2 Gozen Match
2 Crevice to a Different Dimension
2 Seven Tools of the Bandit
2 Chain Dissapearance

I know the side deck, and the main deck is kinda weird. But let me explain for a while. The 2 Big Burn is actually BF hate, and Plant hate and maybe even Machina hate, and especially Lightlord hate.

7 Tools is there to keep Warnings and Icarus in control, since this deck doesn't really work with your monsters destroyed. Chain Dissapearance, believe it or not is Samurai hate. They only have 2 targets, but my main one is Kagemusha (and that monkey thing if they play it).

How do you side :

Six Samurai :

out :

1 Faultroll
2 Regigura
2 Trooper
1 One-for-One
1 Call of the Huanted
1 Gottom's Emergency Call
1 Mirror Force

in :

3 Kinetic Soldier
2 Gozen Match
2 Chain Dissapearance
2 Seven tools of the Bandit

7 tools is only there for 1 sole reason, make sure they don't Warning your Kinetic Soldier or Giant Rat.

You don't really get a chance to do a Faultroll Loop on samurai so I take it out for more hate.

Grave BF :

out :

2 Regigura
1 One-for-One
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Gottom's Emergency Call

in :

1 Cyber Dragon
2 Crevice to a Different Dimension
2 7 Tools of the Bandit

Obviously, 5 side cards aren't really that effective against a top deck, but there is nothing much I could do as this deck isn't really that great against the BF match ups.

That said, I really don't think this deck stand a chance to win this tourney, just posting this in case I wanna play this.

Comments are MORE than welcome!!

I think you should also side a couple of Revelation to face Grave BF.
By the way, I want to ask you do you have any Batteryman card?

LGQ said...

@dynames : no, a friend took all the batteries.

@ brah : its not that rare a tech here, well sabers are hard to find, but ... you get the point

LGQ said...

@ dynames :its not that I don't want, but Revelation is an expensive card
