Frognarch decklist

My comp has been down the previous days, as i had trouble accessing blogger, for some reason it couldnt sign in >.<

Not that I have anything much to post anyways.

The format now is pretty much just somewhere in between as everyone (in the OCG) is waiting for Zexal to kick off, and excel summoning to happen.

I, for one, am waiting for my Vairon Disigma to come out =)

So, for today, i'll be posting my Frog Monarch deck, just as a filler post.

Its pretty much normal, and not the Genex type because i have heard its inconsistent and Duel terminal cards here cost a bunch due to hype, import taxes, and ppl trying to earn profit.

The deck is built to be simple and consistent, and to maximise good hands.

Haven't had much time to play Frognarch (i haven't played properly since January!) , or Yugioh at all .

You'll probably be wondering how i can continue blogging and stuff, when i have so little exposure to competitive Yugioh. Trust me, i wonder too.

So here's the decklist:

3 Battle Fader
1 Gorz
3 Wind Emperor Raiza
2 Wicker Emperor Caius
3 Ice Emperor Mobius
1 Dark Dust Spirit
1 Phantom Skyblaster
3 Swap Frog
2 Treeborn Frog
2 Dupe Frog
1 Ronintoadin
1 Fishborg Gunner

3 Soul Exchange
3 Enemy Controller
2 Cyclone
1 Giant Trunade
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Foolish Burial

3 Spirit Water Technigue- Aoi
1 Mind Crush
1 Trap Dust Chute

Extra deck:
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Shooting Star Dragon
1 Vairon Disigma (planning to get one or two so giving him a spot first)
* The rest are shared with my Saber's extra deck and i am currently proxying or borrowing Formula Synchrons. LOL.

No point spending about 100+ bucks on a game which i'm not playin often. Proxying works fine in my area, and if i need to enter a higher level tourney, i'd just borrow them. This may seem abit strange to you guys, but i have a final exam to study for (and Malaysian education system pretty much sucks everything is memorizing), and im not sure, i might just sell this deck to someone who actually has some interest in playing it.

Side deck:

1 Snowman Eater
1 Jinzo
2 Cyber Dragon
2 Effect Veiler
2 DD Crow
2 Vanity's Fiend
1 Burial from a DD
1 Nobleman of Crossout
2 Malevolent Catastrophe

Here's some explanations to clear some doubts

Only 2 Caius- I dont have a third and i have had no time to trade for it anyways =)

Triple Mobius- because he's awesome. The deck works really well with E-con and Soul Exchange to take care of monsters and Mobius to destroy spells. He also works really well with Fishborg Blaster and Frog to synchro summon. Fishborg restricts its materials to "Water" types, so thats another reason i use triple Mobius

Phantom Skyblaster- I do not have any intention of spending money for a 2nd, and spending on more than one Vairon Disigma. If it gets really good, i may have to fork out cash to get a second, and, only if its not Trishula expensive. Besides, i have Swap Frog to recycle him.

Why there's no One for One: No point. I dont believe in the minus one it brings for this deck, and I dump my Frog and Fishborg via Swap Frog anyways.

One of the quirks of playing Frog Monarch is its hand advantage and the fact that its so simple, it neets advantage at a steady pace, and i can summon Shooting Star Dragon just for the fun of it =)

Sidedeck is pretty standard, the Jinzo and Malevolents are to take care of anti meta decks.

Will be saving up for :

1x NecroFace
2x Dimension Alchemist
1x Veiler
3x Cyber Valley
2x Gold Sarcophagus

as it cost like less than hundred bucks to play Mike Bon's Chaos deck. I wont spend money on Allure first and just run Duality, or proxy Allure, as im almost 85% sure Allure is gonna be in the Dark World deck as a reprint.

Well, the reason people run the Genex version is so that they can dump Fishborg Blaster easily and have an extra card to discard for it (Genex Controller). Without Genex Undine, you kind of just have to wait until you draw the Fishborg Gunner or Foolish Burial.

As for the One for One thing, you would usually have an extra Monster to throw out, like Swap Frog, to fetch Fishborg Gunner. Or, if you drew into the Fishborg Gunner or already have it in the Graveyard, you can discard One for One for to Special Summon it. One for One also has the advantage of being able to set up a first-turn Monarch drop (if you go second), and since your opponent wouldn't expect such an event to happen on your first turn, it could really disrupt their strategy.

u said u dump fishborg with swap frog, you cant do that. swap frog only dumps aqua, fishborg is fish

mike said...

yeah paiseh type wrongly

LFN said...

^ Swap can discard Fishborg to special summon itself.

One for One is good, you can grab Treeborn, Fishborg, or Glow up Bulb.

Also i can hook you up with a allure for free if you want (it's the RGBT special ed super, not an ultra/ulti sorry lol)

Import taxes? O_o

mike said...

@ LFN- i didnt run glow up bulb in my current build cos i lost my common glow up bulb -.- oh well will find it soon or trade with random players.

free rgbt allure? sure! hahah. those sound awesome.

@ mike bon- yeahh nt sure, we used to have a store selling Yugioh boosters here and decks (but not anymore) and thats what the guy told me. no idea etc.
