MysticJhn needs a new theme.

This is the place to tell us about your deck and to give other people feedback on theirs.

Please be nice to new players. Don't expect everyone to be an expert, that is why they are asking for advice, after-all.

MysticJhn needs a new theme.

Post by MysticJhn » Sat Oct 28, 2017 4:08 am

This is me looking for a different kind of Deck advice.
So anyone here that's been on the forum more than a minute knows I play Blue-Eyes.
I play Blue-Eyes in everything... pretty literally.
My recent deck, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, is literally Blue-Eyes in Magician Girls
based upon the fact that Blue-Eyes has female Spellcaster support.
It runs about as well as you might think.

Long story short, I'm rather handcuffed in my deck building, but I'm not really a fan of anything else.
In short, what should I try playing?
First, a few caveats...
1) It can't be Dragon themed, because I've played the HFIL out of Dragons, and it would just make me want to play Blue-Eyes.
Dragons isn't expanding my repertoire any.
I'm a little bit bored with them (even though they are my favorite monsters in general).
2) It can't be overly complicated.
I am not that good, and I need something I can keep track of.
If the only way to win are super long chains that involve effects from hand, field, grave, banished, and whatever every turn, I'll drown.
I don't like to drown in effects.
4) It has to be fun.
I don't want instant win conditions, and it should still be a game, so no FTKs or OTKs.
I only need 52 cards to play solitaire and don't need to search for players or build custom decks.
5) I need to like the artwork, and while that's not really important, I'd be rather uninspired to stare at a bunch of ugly monsters.
If the monsters look like an amalgamation of blobs, bones, and jagged shapes, that's no fun.
I'm talking to you "Altergeist" and "Tindangle" monsters currently of VRAINS.

So, suggest away.
Maybe you'll come up with something I never looked at before, forgot existed, or paid no attention to because they are only good casually and everyone, even "casual" players, play hardcore decks that win instead of what they like.

Now while I wait, I'm off to make a Blue-Eyes of the Fire Fist Deck. (kidding)

Fire Kings! They have a ton of synergy and can be mixed with a ton of stuff, and they aren't half bad with their new card.

I just looked and I'm not sure I get the point of them.
Alright, so the obvious point is Summoning High Garunix (the level 8, not the Level 3) and it keeps nuking everything
as it Special Summons itself over and over to attack directly I assume, but what else?
They just seem to repeatedly SS themselves, but then destroy their friends for no gain.
There is no advantage to them destroying themselves other than keeping the high ATK ones out.
What am I missing?

Barong searches everything else out when destroyed, and they work with all of the beast warrior support including Tenki and Wolfbark. And they generally want to only destroy Barong and Garunix in theme, but they can be mixed with almost everything. Dinosaurs have baby dinos, True Kings have the fire True King, Kozmos have their ships, etc.

Basically Garunix is just a single threat, you have plays from Garunix and Sacred Phoenix if you choose, to Wolfbark and the r4 toolbox including the Fire Fist Xyzs, Bagooska, and King of the Feral Imps to search out the Reptile Earthbound Immortal for a board wipe, to Arvata for board control, to the wealth of themes that want their own cards destroyed. And you can play rekindling, that card is bonkers.

Well I certainly don't want to netdeck anything, but isn't that deck a bit outdated?
I could swear that's mostly what Zombie decks looked liked years ago.
Have they really evolved so little since... the Extra Deck was a new thing?

Well, just as a note, I'm playing online, so I'm capable of using any cards regardless of real world price.
Money is literally no object.

I considered that, but then we're just back to Blue-Eyes.
Making a Toon Deck without Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon would be madness. :mrgreen:

Plus, thanks to Toons having such inconsistent rules, they are a pain to play sometimes.
There's like 4 or 5 types of Toon cards in reguards to whether or not they Special Summon,
whether or not they can attack first turn, whether or not it costs to attack, and probably
other inconsistencies with how they operate that I don't know in the newest Toons.
Then there's Toon Alligator which isn't technically a Toon Monster at all, which is even further bad planning.

Really, since they are all marked as Type/Toon anyway, the rules for how they work
should have been printed on Toon World instead of every card, or even in the official rulebook.
Meanwhile Toon World itself says nothing.

I really want to love Toons, because I in real life watch cartoons and love animation.
They should be perfect for me, but they were executed poorly in game.

Krawlers violate caveat #5; they are ugly and look like sharp garbage.

I do like them, but they are limited.
There's only the three of them and Arcana Knight Joker, which has a nice effect to not be targeted, but it's costly by today's standards
and you can't even Fusion Substitute it.
Jack's Knight is a Level 5 whose stats are only Level 4 by today's standard, and none of them have an effect other than
to Special Summon Jack's Knight.
You'd have to otherwise fill the deck with Normal Warrior support, and that's really slow and bland.
I've actually done that before, although focused around my waifu "Kanan the Swordmistress", so it was better.

There's no real excitement to building what's essentially a Normal Warrior beatdown.
