Gravekeepers vs LSS

Postby shaner1913 » Sat May 21, 2011 10:46 am

so today i went to my locals and had to play against a guy with a complete LSS Deck and i had no chance , except when i activated starlight road and summoned stardust and he couldnt get rid of it.

he can so easily synchro summon shi en and i just cannot get rid of it.

does someone have any advice for me what i can do with my gravekeeper deck against a high end LSS deck?

Despite his previous derpishness, Gravekeeper's Guard is actually quite good vs shien. The 2nd place winner at YCS anaheim did actually main 1. The absolute best way to get rid of shien is by returning him to the extra deck with a monster effect. GK guard, penguin soldier, jujitsu master, so on and whatnot, they're all the preferred method of getting rid of shien.

I would go for penguin soldier in side deck, at least 2 of them if you do not have 2 fossil dynas. They have an added benefit of being useful vs. Heroes, sworns, and making KMP/Karakuri synchro wet themselves in fear. Good side deck if you can manage to fit it in.

If you're playing gravekeeper, I would seriously consider investing in fossil dynas. They're an insta-win against numerous decks, including that TERRIBLE matchup gks have against monarchs. Fossil dyna + mask of restrict = dead monarch deck.

I don't think so. If that were true, Spirit Reaper and Marshmallon wouldn't be on the banlist.

Spiderfro seems right on the money. For Monarchs, consider Mask of Restrict - stops all Tributing, which is fine since you won't need to use Descendant's effect (zero backrow) - and Fossil Dyna.
I'd also suggest Mind Crush and Solemn Warning (if you can get it).

the thing is the judge there said that hes right , so i didnt start complaining

and maybe he is because a facedown synchro monster maybe doesnt count as succesfully summoned or something like that

Nah, his effect is Continuous. Even when he's facedown, being attacked flips him face up before damage calculation, and his effect prevents him from being destroyed.

No offense, but you're side deck doesn't look very good. No mained Tribute? I'd rather main it and side it out 2nd game than have it sided.

Remember something: never, NEVER, side in Crossout in mirror matches. If you nail their Spy you'll have to RFP your own Spies too.

It looks obvious but I've seen people fall for it.

That's why you side out Tribute. When do you think you'll side IN the Royal Tribute?

i just think that there are some decks , when it is just usefull in the first turn , and without PoD its unlikely to draw it so i side it out.

but there are decks i guess where its useful more often not only at the start and because i dont have any other side deck cards its in there
