Deckbuilding Challenge!

Deck Building Challenge!
[/u]
Image
After seeing the Pegasus Challenge on the TCG website I thought it might be cool if we did something based on the it. The idea of the deck building challenge is to build a deck that is competitive within the limits given for that challenge. Anyone wishing to take part must post a deck list between the opening and closing dates, then all of the deck lists will be put on a polling thread were everyone on the forum will be given a chance to vote on their favorite. That challenges winner will then be declared deck building champion for that challenge and be given a special sig.
Rules Summary
> Decks must be no more than 40 cards.

> Cards must have the rarity written beside them. (You may use the abbreviation e.g. Ult)

> Side Decks are optional, and usually will not have restrictions.

> Don't forget to title your deck, and write the name of the challenge you are entering at the top of your post.

> Decks posted after closing are ignored.

> Don't spam the Deck voting thread, deck discussion is fine in this thread however.

> No exception to the restrictions of the deck.

> You do not have to actually own the cards, but a good knowledge of rarities will give you an advantage and save you time. (just thought I'd state that) :lol:

> Decks are to be built using advance format. (This may be changed for later challenges)

> OCG cards may be used if they are equal to their TCG counterparts.

> Submit your decks in a spoiler, hopefully this will discourage cheating/copying slightly. All cheats will be disqualified!

> Polling will run for 5 days after closing to give users a chance to vote.

> Be creative!

This sounds interesting. We just build a deck withing the proposed restrictions right?

Similar to iron deck but with a different feel.

I will post a deck once my exams are finished.

Yup, as long as it fits the requirements the rest is up to you :)

This challenge is to do with card value, but future challenges could revolve around monster level to all trap decks.

What rarity are JUMP promos? Also, what does no exceptions to the restrictions of the deck mean? I'm assuming we have to follow the banned list.

Edit: Are we allowed to use OCG cards?

They are not in at the moment, but I assure you that they will be included in a later challenge. :)
Also, what does no exceptions to the restrictions of the deck mean?
Basically just stick to the restrictions.
I'm assuming we have to follow the banned list.
Yes, I'll put that in the rules summary.

You don't have to, its based on the cards rarity not its price. :)

Hmmm, not really too fond of searching for all the rarities. Guess I'll pass this one... :/
