Last day of School holidays! :( I haven't had enough hols :(
This also means I will not be blogging as often as 5x a week for the past 2 or 3 weeks.
IT will be good to see friends again though.
Today I will attempt on a deck list of Anti Meta BF.
Sure most people run Black Feathers in a rogue-ish way but it's not exactly anti-meta, despite the fact that it is ala-Jae Kim.
I've not an avid BF player, and I do not own a BF deck but I have borrowed Sean's and Travis' several times so I think I should be err quite familiar with it?
Today's built fits in 2 copies of Skill Drain and 2 copies of Royal Oppression. While Oppression is the icing of the cake, Skill Drain is still good because it can negate certain monster effects that you do not want it to go off. Of course, we will tune the deck to fit in these 2 cards so that it will not conflict with the 2 effects as much as possible.
So here's my take!
3 BF- Day Break Sirroco
3 BF- Azure Flame Shura
2 BF- Big Flag Vayu
3 BF- Kalut of the Moonlight
1 BF- Shippu no Gale
3 BF- Blast of the Black Lance
2 Cyber Dragon
2 Black Whirlwind
1 Heavy Storm
3 Pot of Greederosity
1 Allure Of Darkness
1 Pot of Avarice
2 Skill Drain
2 Royal Oppression
1 Mirror Force
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Trap Hole
3 Dimension Prison
1 Torrential Tribute
2 God Bird Attack
1 Starlight Road
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Dark Bribe
Anyway this deck is just for fun as you can play it in an aggressive anti-meta Gadget tool-boxy way if you pull of Black Whirlwind.
While the deck rarely special summons, there is of course 3 Pot of Duality, and 1 Allure for you to look through your deck and synergize.
There is 2 Vayuu just in case you need to synchro for Arms Wing or Armor Master. Since it doesn't conflict with Oppression, it doesn't matter. You can Allure it away or set it for Icarus Attack
The beauty of having a trap based variant is that those traps will never be dead. If there is Jinzo bothering you, just attack over it with Kalut or use Sirroco's pumping effect. Nobody runs Decree anymore though.
Shura can help you summon your monsters during damage calculation so Oppression can't get to it. Leave Vayuu as a floater or for defence or Icarus fodder. If you do not have Skill Drain up yet, you can synchro for a quick Catastor or Magical Android.
The single copy of Pot of Avarice is for mere recycling as you can find out the count of your monster army will drop very very quickly during mid game/ late game. It also gives more target for Black whirlwind so why not?
The best move is to open with a Sirroco and a Black Whirlwind and auto synchro Collosal Fighter or Stardust Dragon, since both monsters aren't affected by Skill Drain. Colossal is the better choice since he returns during the damage step so Oppression can't get him (correct me if Im wrong about this)
Overall this is just a random deck concept and I still think the other original BF variant is better. I will be surprised if people take this deck seriously and tune BF to become like this. I would be surprised if this even tops a tourney.
You could side into standard BF or stuff like that.
Anyway if your bored running standard BF, just give ths deck a try and tune it to fit your likings. Who knows, it might work out for you.
