I'm expecting to see Nekroz, Nekroz, Nekroz and a smidgen of poor decks that suck but people play anyway because they are clueless or in denial.

What are you taking (if you feel combfortable saying on here)? Nekroz?

Yeah, Nekroz. Still figuring out the specifics of what non-core cards to run.

I was going to main 3 Maxx "C" 2 Shared Ride, but a friend suggested Droll & Lock Bird, so if I can find any I'll run them over shared ride.

Djinn Out=Bull Blader

Side looks a lot like yours (Decisive Armor sided instead of mained)

1 MST mained

I dont think droll and lock durendal combo will be good if people know about it, which im guessing that at this point most good players do.

I personally dont like maxx c and ride because I dont think they actually fix any issues in the mirror. Drawing cards rarely help you to win the game due to the nature of the way the mirror plays out.

I once played through a shared ride, he drew 13 cards and I still won. Granted I only did that to illustrate how little those cards actually do.

I think you should definitely side some kind of blow out but it's hard to say what. Most of nekroz deck building is heavily dependant on meta calls.

It is a shame this format has so many paradoxes :(

Ended up 4-4-1, going 3-0-1 against the mirror and 0-4 against everything else (1 no-show). Maybe I should have mained another mst or two. I'll post a more detailed report later. Tomorrow I'm planning on playing in the attack of the giant card (6-round single elimination, 1st place is a huge toon kingdom).

I think Patrick Hoban got a taste of bitter defeat; he proclaimed that he had practised 80+ hours a week, but fails to make the top 64. In other news; two Ritual Beast decks made it into the same cut, from what I heard; the judges were bad for the feature matches: allowing a Gravekeeper's Spy to be special summoned under Vanity's Emptiness, and other things.

American players say that the European events don't count for anything, but when you're showcasing bad judging during feature matches then you have to take a few steps back; the European coverage is a lot better, we don't start by testing the stream with a Magic: The Gathering match, and our judges are competent (we do have our own cheaters though, and ego players)
Maybe its time to get a signature picture of sorts >.> Max-rarity Yosenju's will be a thing!
My tradelist, marvel at how organized it is! http://tinyurl.com/omgklke

Was watching that game.

It was nice to see something else top for once.

And everybody reckons that BA are dead with Tour Guide at 1.
