1) Why isn't Great Shogun Shien ran in the Six Samurai decks in the OCG Shriek decklists. 14 to 15 monsters at most, Shien will do wonders for the deck actually.
Shien + True Shien is some damn hard to break lockdown, save if you have Effect Veiler and its hard to destroy too with its effect that lets you destroy another Samurai instead.
Its really REALLY easy to play. So, why aren't you running Shogun Shien now?
EDIT : thanks to lgq for pointing out on a ruling that I didn't know about. so no Naturia Bambooshoot scenario.
However, its still a free 2500 beatstick that can become 3k with Gateway's first effect. Its easily special summonable too.
And it can disrupt opponent's flow/ tempo too as he has to choose carefully which spell and trap he must activate first. Mind game!
2) Why aren't Quickdraw / Plant Synchro Variants running Snowman Eater?
It provides consistency, disruption, incredible synergy with Caius (its a -2 and 2400 damage), and good with for synchro fodder. Hell, it makes Trishula so easily its not even funny.
3) This is epic : http://shriek.twoday.net/stories/8456839/
Heroes + Plant Synchro. Remodified Debris Heroes? I likey. Seems abit inconsistent, but I may test it out if I have the time considering I have almost all the cards except for the 2 Dandys.
Thats gonna be really long, since i'm working on Fish now. Expect to see cheap fish decks taking KL by storm in 2 weeks time.
