I think you guys are missing what I want to do with this deck. I don't really want to run this as OTK/Swarm, I want to run Saber Control.

I personally like Saber Hole as it knocks out monsters smaller than 1500 (or higher) for no cost. Sabers have even less trouble than GBs do when it comes to keeping a monster on the field so it's doubtful it'll ever be a totally dead card.

My own strengths lie in running a more liesurely drawn-out game where I dictate the flow and pace of my opponents moves. If I can do that successfully, 9 times out 10, I win.

Saber Hole:

Pros:
Its a Counter Trap. This means no chaining Icarus/Trap Stun, calling prio, etc.
Its only got a condition, no cost.

Cons: You have to have a Saber faceup on the field.

IMHO, this card is well worth running as it also c**k-blocks Six Sams when it comes to getting Bushido counters, etc. Sams have their Counter Trap, but if I run this @ 3 + 2 Warning + 2 BTH + 1 RO, they'll have a VERY hard time pulling their moves off.

That's if you go first.

Anyway for the Deck:
-1 Saber Slash (Honestly a dead draw, since you are not going to explode anyway, no point trying to neuter the Royal Oppression)

+1 Creature Swap

That's an interesting idea Arrow, ty. :) I was thinking that Slash should prolly be either sided or dropped entirely after contemplating its pros and cons.

While its all only true if I go first, a lot of strats are pretty dependent on that anyways in any deck.

The worst thing about Saber Slash is that you can't even use it if your only Saber gets booked.

True story, although Boggart Knight usually guarantees you'll have 2 Sabers out.

...I hate True Story.

Anyway, how about playing a Level Limit Area B? Almost all of your X-Sabers are Level 3 and below Lawl.

It's only @ 1 as a tech. Furthurmore, do you know how broken is giving Emmersblade to your opponent and suiciding your Emmersblade to THAT Emmersblade?
