Thanks to andrew for pointing it out.
before, i noticed it, but was reluctant to take it out due to nothing else to replace it with in my deck.
need to keep this short and sweet,
will post again tonight once i reach home. now using retarded compp at gamers arena.
that card... is.... Bottomless Trap Hole!
Think about it, BTH is now redundant and superceded by Solemn Warning.
BTH is so useless because of a thing called monster priority.
Just about every big monster can activate priority to evade BTH and balance the loss you created. After that, with the -1 you lost frm BTH, you basically -1 in terms of card advantage.
Just about all the big monsters will die to Bottomless Trap Hole, but they will nett off advantage.
Against Plants, you can use your BTH to destroy mainly Caius, they still get to remove one of your cards.
If you try to destroy Camellia tytannial, chances are they have a fluff token, or dandy or lonefire to negate you.
Against BF, the only thing they can destroy is Shura and Sirroco, which the BF player can chain ICARUS ATTACK to. Then you -1.
If you really need to destroy Siroco or Shura, you can just use attack negation cards like Prison or Mirror Force which are pretty bad this format. And ppl can just chain Icarus attack.
If you use it to destroy the monster summoned by Vayu, its basically a -1 for you.
And if you face Samurai, BTH doesnt stop Kageki.
It dies to Shien badly, and if you really wanna chain it to Kizan or Mizuho or Grandmaster, they managed to get off their 2 counters already for Gateway or United.
Then they can just search another Kizan or Grandmaster. EMO-nya kamu.
Even against Sabers, BTH is bull cos Boggart replaces itself with a monster from your hand, and if you remove Faultroll they still summon a monster from their grave. Chain it to Hyunlei, but chances are they stunned you already and that you will still get Heavy Stormed.
Even against recruiters, its just bull cos the searcher replaced itself already (airman and gearframe)
im gonna staight away agree with michael bonacini, your deck cant win without 2 MSTs.
Gateway is too strong.
Got raped by samurai many times here. Score still balanced though.
PPl coming for the KL Xmas tourney (single elimination format), you either need to run 2x MST / or main Veiler or you have to be playing Six Samurai.
Im gonna boldly call Samurai/ anti meta/ or BF to take the tourney.
Decks like Scraps have a high chance too because they have versatility to run Book of Moons and Solemn Warnings in 3s and MSTs and Dust Tornados in 2s.
Im gonna reinforce my point more that BTH usually dies before it is used to MST/ Tornado and cant take on Trunade/ Cold Wave
Even against Fish OTK, it cant stop Fish Coelacanth from pulling off his effect. In fact i would thank you if you did that because now i have one more space on the field to play Fishborg Blaster/ Ronintoadin or Monster Reborn.
Tonight im gonna post on the most underrated card this format which i think should be run in 2s alot. Its not MST because everyone realizes how good it is already.
Tuning my deck to fit one more of tonight's card and one more MST.
Gonna post on a card that MAY change sabers and help it to overcome the threat of Book of Moon.
KL was a blast. Found Asian editions Cyber Dragons, an ultra edition Lily, and several old cards including the JUmp Earth edition of Blue Eyes White Dragon (thanks cookie) and the old EX editions of Blue Eyes and Dark Magicians.
Met alot of awesome new duelists like Wong Fei Hung Terry and Nick and probably somemore which i cant rmbr. Nice to meet Andrew, Biscuit, LGQ, Sean, Sung lee, ivan, Michael (old vers), and many more duelists again.
Played with all of Fei Hung's decks (well 11 of them which he brought that day), quite pleased that i managed to par his BF deck, and beat the rest about 2-1 or 1-0. But scrubbed to his legandary Light Beat 0-3!
First game he had good hand, and my hand SUCKED. Second game was good alot of card simplification going on but he played Miracle Fusion to win the game. 3rd game was super epic. and im not kidding i even had to tribute summon gorz, and DD Warrior Lady keeps eating my monsters. I Cold Wave and Black Rosed the whole field leaving him at nothing and i had 2 cards in hands. I was at 900 life and he was at 1200, but he topdecked Honest.
Really gotta hand it to him there, he has the best Light Beat deck i have ever seen, and i daresay its one of the best Light Beats in the entire game.
Its not one of those decks you can nettdeck just off the comp and play it because its tuned to his playing style (like Lazaros sabers from the frst YCS of the format)
Im not gonna be giving away anymore info about his deck. It was an honour dueling you (if ur readin this )
Before i end, i have to say Cookie is a pervert.
Thats all for now.
