I'm sorry But I've owned Darksouls more than anything else

The more I play Duelnet, the less I understand why Darksoul and Boggard are gonna broke sabers.

I don't play them and for the last couple of days, I beat EVERY single sabers I met (with sabers).

Maybe its because of my random techs? I'm not sure. Maybe you guys can give me a clue.

I tried fitting in Darksouls and Boggard, it just doesn't work, although 2 Darksoul and no Boggard still worked thou, but its not THAT much better. 3 and any number just makes the deck incredibly unbalance.

monster (17):

3 XX-saber Fullhelmknight
3 XX-saber Emmersblade
2 XX-saber Faultroll
2 X-saber Airbellum
1 X-saber Pashuul
1 XX-saber Garsem (the dude win me more duels than any other saber, mostly because no one knows what it does)
3 DD Warrior Lady (easily MVP)
1 Sangan
1 Cyber Dragon

spell (9):

3 Pot of Duality
2 Mystic Space Typhoon
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Book of Moon
1 Reinforcements of the Army

trap (14):

2 Gottom's Emergency Call
2 Trap Stun
2 Solemn Warning
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Mirror Force
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Royal Oppression
1 Transmigration Prophecy (won me games a lot)

I don't know, is this deck good? Or not? Cause it seems to only work when I'm playing it, or because others playing it doesn't think like I do?

If you don't try to figure out a way to get rid of every card on your opponent's hand if you get the chance, your not playing it right, thats my conclusion. Sac that Gottom's if you have to, that how I win most of my games.

That said, this deck has a bad match up against any Plant based deck (plant syncro or Junk Doppel) cause they can just turn the field around with 1 card and their advantage almost never fades.

Tengu is another problem as I waste alot of resource just trying to take it out, but I could care less since its not gonna be in OCG till end of next year.

Lost to fish twice, but both times to Armory Colossal OTK, which is illegal now in OCG, so I don't see a need to mod my deck to face it. And if he did anything but that (both times), he won't have won, cause I have Emmers and DD Warrior Lady, both times. But since its mixed rulings, there is nothing much I can argue about.

Priority is a bitch, I lost once to Lightlord cause I have 2 BTH and a Mind Crush(testing) set, he has a Wolf on the field only, while I have Gottoms. He draws, I call Celestia, he shows me his hand, 2 Judgment Dragoons. In OCG, that wouldn't have matter, cause I have double BTH for the 2 Dragoons that can't call priority, but it wasn't OCG, and I forgot bout that completely and lost to the stupid "Priority Nuke-the-Field, BTH? I'm sorry, but you KNOW I have another 1 right". Not to bitch but not playing priority for 3 months really makes one forget about how weak BTH was back then.

VS samurais is all about who starts first (like there was a time that it wasn't). But I can still fight back if I start with DD Warrior Lady, and his lot. Cause this deck WAS originally build to take down Samurai since end of last year, and with the sides, I could say the only samurai I lost to was Fishtank's last weekend. Not something to brag about thou, since it doesn't do well against a lot of other decks, just that I'm too focus on samurai to care about them.

I find myself setting Fullhelm or Airbellum 1st turn a lot if I don't pull Emmers or DD, just cause I don't wanna let my opponent know what deck I'm playing, but it worked for me quite a lot, aside from the GB match ups.

All and all, Duelnet is good, although I'm starting to get bored with all those "you can't sac a facedown for Icarus" or "Catastor's effect will apply even if the opponent monster is facedown because bla bla bla", and the best of them reasonings "you can't chain E Call to Trap Stun cause it would negate it, cause Trap Stun will negate all traps even if its after it, unless its a counter".

Luckily, I have never got A.S.S'ed and would NOT look forward for 1.

forget what I just said, just lost to a saber, mainly due to me setting 5 and got hyunlei, big miss on my part.

No Darksoul and Boggart? o.O Darksoul makes the deck consistent while Boggart helps get Faultroll to the field faster. Well actualy both do that. Also Darksoul makes perfect Gottoms fodder esp with gottoms e-call and emmersblades xD

LGQ said...

but it doesn't work, I dont understand why it doesn't, but it doesn't. Not with my game plan.

mostly cause those 2 cards has no AntiMETA elements build in to them

Boggart is pretty anti-metaish, with 1900 attack.

Also, a lot of players on duelnet are noobs, so probably contributes to your wins. I played against Samurais with Smashing and a shitty anti-meta deck just now.

The reason u feel dark souls n bogart knights r not needed. Is that one dark souls searching ability is of no use to u cos ur deck jus plays one monster at a time and play with that until it needs to be replaced and dark soul won't give u any field pressence... Bogart knight is an instant hyunlei or mayb an instant faultroll but again u r playing conservatively and don't have priority making these monsters less of a threat... In tcg everyone is all for spamming the field with a bunch of monsters n protecting them with thief back row and sabers do that very well with dark souls and bogart...

the anon dude that posted before me is right.

lgq, its cos ur playstyle differs from us.

we're running the deck to gain as much advantage and not knock stuff out of opponents hand (my least priority when i play that deck)...basically we set up for faultroll and hyunlei plays backed up by stun or tools

and... darksoul is just good. level 3 is awesome n searching capabilities is welcome too.

LGQ said...

@anon : that seems right. but the dude before him has a good point as well.

Ahh man, I know this is a deck for fun, not a competitive one, but that looks interesting.

LGQ said...

actually, this is my main tourney deck ...

Travie Pep said...

Man I don't know how

LGQ said...

cause there really arent many decks in Asian format, and this deck can take on all of them, so it works in my area
