New deck lol
Initially i wasnt gonna post up the list because i wanted to play it as a competitive deck but since im gonna be passive in Yugioh competitive plays until December, who cares, just post.
Every single piece of appreciation/ kudos/ shout outs go to Clarence for bringing back the deck concept into light. :) :)
So far, i have not seen anyone playing the deck competitively or casually so i assume the deck is still new to most ppl.
So, i was bored last night and i wanted to try something new and since i missed the old Yugioh times, i wanted to play something random like Plants, which could reflect skill, or something like Goat Control etc.
I wouldnt play Plants because in the OCG, we have to play Ryko Lightsworn Hunter and if you have been reading this blog for a while, you would know how much i personally dislike Ryko. Its not a bad card, its just the milling which i dislike. severely. lol.
So, i remembered Clarence's AKB so i decided to mod the deck and test it without Rykos. So since there are no Rykos, i cut out his Hamsters. I could tell his Hamsters were to first turn Trishula consistently, but i cut it out nevertheless.
Rykos were okay but i cut them for Effect Veiler for more randomized play and to provide more options. Veiler is very necessary versus DW which relies greatly on Fabled Raven. (most have cut out Dealings because of the mirror match)
Aside from that, Spy + Spy + Veiler = Trishula too so its all gooood. Having access to more tuners besides level 3 ones are better anyway.
I would have to comment that Rescue Rabbit in here is not as broken as Rescue Cat was when it was still around. Although Rabbit is strong generally because it can summon Ragia and Quasar with ease, but lets look at Rabbit from the AKB point of view.
I honestly feel its not as strong as Cat because its targets are more limited. You only have 3x Genex Controllers, and if you draw bad and draw 2 in your starting hand, then Rabbit will be potentially dead until you can draw off Pot of Avarice, which the odd are low.
Rabbit's targets are fewer and Genex Controller is not as strong as Airbellum. When Arcanite clears the field, the only thing Genex Controller can do is attack and deal damage while Airbellum last time could become a Spirit Reaper.
The only reason Controller is better is that you can Chimeratech Fortress if your opponent has Cyber Dragon and its a target for Allure, but whatever!
so, here's the decklist:
3 Genex Controller
3 Rescue Rabbit
3 GK Spy
1 GK Descendant
2 Effect Veiler
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Breaker the Magic Warrior
1 Ryko Lightsworn Hunter
1 Dark Arm Dragon / (Black Luster Soldier if its unbanned next format)
3 Pot of Duality
2 Pot of Avarice
1 Mind Control
1 Book of Moon
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Allure of Darkness
1 Forbidden Lance
2 Trap Stun
2 Solemn Warning
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Torrential Tribute
Since many are speculating that BLS will be unbanned next format, my secret wish to play this deck is to be able to play BLS. If it doesnt, nvm, theres still dark armed =)
Breaker is my bitch and i have liked the card since i abused it in DW, and look! its a spellcaster and its level 4. Arcanite food, and fodder for Roach etc.
The deck has so MANY options and with 2 or 3 cards in hands, i can access at least 3 or 4 different plays which i love so much. Well its not counted if i draw Bottomless and Warning hand.
For example, i could open with Veiler, Rabbit and Spy and i can choose to go Trishula next turn, or go Arcanite next turn with a Veiler to stop opponent's plays.
Duality makes the deck incredibly consistent too.
I know i said i hated Ryko, but then i was just messing around with this build. If you count the number of cards, there are 41 cards and Ryko is the 41st. So i will probably cut it out or something.
Besides, i would personally run 41 cards in this deck so i dont draw into double Controllers so often lol. But then thats what testing is for.
Just realised i forgot to include Giant Trunade. lol.
At the same time, i wish good luck to our reigning champion Galileo De Obaldia, whom i think is one of the best players in the game, and also to Malaysia's representative Sam Kee. All the best.
Anyways thats all for today, and thank you for reading.
