Xing Zhen Hu and Deck List for Trip

Fuck my luggage bag got lost at airport! Hope to be able to find it. Luckily Yugioh cards arent inside but then all my nice new clothes are T_T

First of i want to talk about a card that could help Sabers overcome Book of Moon.

Which I am not sure if i want to test it out as I can just play around Book of Moon anyways which i have been doing all the time in KL

Its none other than Xing Zhen Hu.

Basically Xing Zhen Hu stops your opponent from activating 2 set cards.

While Trap Stun negates all traps, there is possibility your opponent has a Book of Moon face down somewhere among his 3 or 4 set face down cards.

Xing Zhen Hu is good if your opponent has only about 2 or 3 face down cards meaning you will have a possibility of sealing 2 or more spells/ traps. Which will then be raped with by Hyunlei.

Problem now is that its WAYY situational.

However, sealing 2 is as good as a +1 for you, or if your opponent wants to chain something in response he will have to waste the card.

If your opponent wants to waste Cyclone on it, so be it.

The good thing is that, unlike Trap Stun , its not a -1 if you got Book of Mooned.

Now, take note THAT THIS IS NOT THE POST I WAS GONNA MAKE ON ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED CARDS THIS FORMAT.

Im tired, and i'll do the post tmr.

Basically, before i sign off , im gonna post the finalized decklist I used today (*last day) and i realize i forgot the names of 2 duelists which i should have acknowleged in the last post. Zhen Pei (zack) and Karl. Twas nice dueling you guys. Trishula!

It was overall a better build because without Bottomless, the deck worked much smoother.

Aaaaaaaaand i didn't scrub to Samurai! So! Mission accomplished! =)

Aaaaaaaaand i think i made the whole KL hate Gorz somehow,. Especially andrew. dropped gorz twice and turned games around. Played against Fei Hung's Herald too, exhausted all his hand cards and dropped Gorz. Sean hates it too I know.

Earlier build wasnt consistent, but todays build worked like water.

Anyways heres the deck i ran at 40 cards (finally i ran a 40 card deck instead of my basic 41! )

Monsters [19]
3 Faultroll
3 Fullhelm Knight
3 Emmersblade
1 Ragigura
2 Dark Soul
2 Pashuul
2 Boggart Knight
1 Sangan
1 Debris Dragon
1 Gorz the bestest MVP ever

Spells [10]
2 MST which i drew in 2 games against samurai fck yeah! _l_
2 Pot of Duality
1 Cold Wave
1 Giant Trunade
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
2 Book of Moon (because i didn't feel comfortable using 3)

Traps [11]
2 Trap Stun
3 Solemn Warning
2 Gottoms Emergency Call
1 Torrential Tribute
2 Dimension Prison (tech worked good, no Mirror force and BTH)
1 Solemn Judgment


Very balanced build imo, although i dont think its good nettdeck fodder because it was made for my playstyle and personal choice etc.

Cos Karl and Shin Tat and others tried the deck and scrubbed. or so i heard. hmm.

Dont ask me why Ragigura is inside. Tested Airbellum out and it was shitty, and Ragi helps me recycle Faultroll and push for games wayy too often.

Debris because I Black Rose so many times. Also, I could revive Pashuul/ Dark Soul (which will be my 2nd saber on field) and summon Faultroll.

MOST embarrassing highlight of the trip - Scrubbed to lil 14 yr old kid BF cos too overconfident and set 3 cards and got Delta Crowed. He drew Black Whirlwind next turn and used Sirocco focus and spam Bora/ BFs and focus and kill my Emersblade.

Lesson- Delta Crow wins games. Maindeck worthy. Main it NOW!

Most epic highlight - Had many lucky topdecks (Destiny Draw) and everyone can tell you so. But most epic highlight is definitely when i had to TRIBUTE SUMMON Gorz. Wow.

2 MVPs in the trip - Gorz and Cyclone. Apart from destroying Gateways, i use it for mind games. Wont do blind Cyclone. zack did it once and wasted it to his my warning (which was a bluff as i only had 2k lp left) , If he had saved that, he could stop one of my set traps next turn. Which eventually made Trishula.

Most important lesson learnt on trip - prior to previous post, i learnt that BTH is not miandeck worthy and 2 MST is. I have been stubborn at first and was reluctant to make the change.

Take it from me, you should. And replace your BTHs with Books / Solemns.

.....................I can smell banhammer. hmmm.

gorz win games, but i don't think anyone in kl has him in the deck at the moment.
