Discuss your yu-gi-oh decks here.

Some of the newer decks however do need more than 40 cards, I know tournament worthy gadget decks run 45 cards, and Lightsworn (the monster theme with each of them having the effect of discarding X cards from the top of your deck during the end phase) run 45 aswell.

It's usually good to stick to 40 if you lack any milling effects or draw power.

Current deck i'm making at the moment is Synchro cat, and am currently looking to trade for as much gladiator beast stuff as i can.

Gadgets definitely can get away with running more than 40 cards simply because they need to avoid drawing extra copies of Gadgets. The Lightsworn theme pretty much revolves around milling to the point they can actually deck themselves out if the player doesn't know what he/her is doing. Other than Lightsworn and 5th Gadget, or whatever they call it now, not much else really comes to mind when breaking the 40 limit.

How consistent are Syncro Cat builds?

I have a bit of Glad stuff, lemme look. You got any caster stuff?

From what i've tested and the decklists i've seen, they are scarily consistent.

So long as your opening hand consists of

summon priest (summoner monk in english Pinching_eyes )
Cold wave
random spell.

it sets up a quick control play, diminishing the opponents board combined with the 1 auto discard of X-saber airbellum it puts the opponent in quite a pinch.

I do my best to keep to 40 cards, though there are some decks (like hopeless dragon) where I cant simply cut a card out to smooth it down to 40.

Fragbait : what caster stuff do you need?
I'm looking for just a few things, but I'll consider any offer related to casters.

I'm really looking for Tempest Magician and Secret Village of the Spellcasters. Magician's Valkyria would be good too.

This is a message board about spinning tops. I don't take kindly to your 2D flat land monster cards.

Seriously, when I last played in tournaments I used a deck built around Insect Barrier and DNA Surgery, which was years ago.

Epic.

Insect Barrier is a great combo, but replace DNA with Parasite Pesticide and you have one of the very few comboes from the anime that actually works.
I have that card Weevil used (Parasite Pesticide I guess). But I was always fearful I might forget to get the card back from the other person, so I never put it in my deck.

Sleeve it when they take it.
I kept all my cards in sleeves, lmao. I'm just an absent minded person at times.

I don't know where all my sleeves went....they disappeared on me.
Probably going to end up building a Blackwing Control deck soon if I ever get the chance to test it. Supposedly it's really fast, and can OTK at just about any point in the game.

The Syncros are what's going to be the problem getting. I just need to get a Dark Armed Dragon, a third Solemn, and I'll pretty much have the main deck in the bag.
Good stuff. What variation will you be going for, Synth?

Going to run it with Solemn Judgment x3, Giant Trunade, and whatever else allows me to keep the backfield clear without slowing the deck down.

I saw the blackwing part, but there's always different ways to go about it. As you know you only need certain cards for sure and the rest can be up to you based on how you wanna run it. I'm not blind Wink
Idk, I'm just going to load up on stuff that makes sense. Not planning on doing anything special; Just as long as I can press for major damage with minimal risk.

Probably going to run a couple of these:

Heres my entire yu gi oh collection.
Damn it theres a dark hole, I want a real version of that!

How can you use it if it's fake ...? It's the same as using fake parts in Beyblade. It isn't acceptable.

Any comments?
Dude, you only posted it like an hour ago ... and I doubt many people are too impressed by your fake cards.
It's funny because you can get the real versions of those cards for like $.05.

Based off of what I remembered, the deck doesn't seem that good. It has a bunch of splashed cards and it looks like it has too many cards in it.
Your a very negative person Brad, it's just a god damn fake.
What, the world's going to end if I use it??

No, but nobody worth a damn will play against you. Why not just print out a picture of Crush Card Virus and stick it in your deck? It's seriously the exact same thing as using a fake card.
