Random thoughts after a hard day's work!

2009 is coming to an end. A few days later , it would be 2010

Which means that :

1) Its a new year for YGO!
2) My O level Results collection date is coming closer.
3) A fresh start in a new school!

Very scared now. The thought of me collecting my results is very scary. My whole future depends on it, and if i screwed up...Well , i have no idea what will happen.

Anyways , There is a New Year's Eve tournament this Thursday and i will try to go down. Need to play and test my deck.

Come on. Who wouldn't want to try and win a STARLIGHT ROAD?

That's all for today.

Tourney Report (27th Dec)

Met Jin Hao at Clementi MRT to deal with a guy on the forum.

We then realized that he's also a player from Jurong...LOL?

Anyways, i got another DT Airbellum for my deck while Jinny got 2 for himself.

Went to Jurong East. At first , there was no one in sight. But , as time went by , some people came over. I went to lunch with Jinny , and sat with Lauren and Darren. Talked about DD Eatos for awhile and learnt that its really a stressful deck to play.

Went back and the tourney started shortly after Bryan got some trades.

Format : Swiss. No top 8 cause Bryan wanted to finish early.

Deck used : MGS AKB

Match 1 : VS ??? (GB)
OXO
R1 : Legion + Arcanite + other stuff FTW!
R2 : He controlled me. I didn't draw any sided cards
R3 : Airbellum poked him for awhile. He no cards left. Then proceeded to synchro and win.

1-0

Match 2 : VS William (BF)
OXO
R1 : Deck gave me unfriendly hand, for my opponent lah.
R2 : BF otk. Spy + Spy + Brain Controlled my Airbellum + other shitz.
R3 : Chaos Sorceror is strong! Removed his Armor Master

2-0

Match 3 : VS Poh Choon (AHA)
XOO
R1 : Fortress pwn me until 600LP. Die loh.
R2 : Forgot how i won.
R3 : Lightning Vortexed for the win.

3-0

Match 4 : VS Jin Hao (Tragedylord)
XX
Summing up the 2 games which i lose = LIGHTLORDS ARE GAY!

3-1 (NO PRIZE! WTF)

Yup. My score wasn't really good. Jinny got 1st and took the Mist Wurm.

End of Story

Sad..

Very sad..

Al well! Still got next week!

Deck Featured!

Come here!

My deck was featured by Neuxcharge.

But i have to give half of the credits to him, since he was the one who provided majority of the cards.

So, credits to you , Neux!

And sorry for what happened yesterday. I overreacted , as always.

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Merry Christmas!

As title.

Merry Christmas to all of you out there!

And a pleasant Happy New Year to all!

Monday, December 21, 2009

Random Update before Christmas!

Point form is always good!

1) No money to make meta decks like crazy Eatos boss.dek.
2) Everyday work = No time for yugimonz
3) Last week scrub at locals made me rethink about YGO
4) YGO seems to get more boring. Perhaps its because i'm always working.
5) Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 coming on the same day as Xmas Tourney. WTF?

Pretty much sums up what i am thinking of.

and, most importantly :

1) SAVE UP MONEY FOR GS02!
2) Think about how in the world am i going to beat DD Eatos when they are going to have Parallel World Fusion and E.HERO Great Tornado. All my birds kena shrink into little chicks for their beatsticks to pwn.

............Headache

Tourney Report (19/12)

Scrubbing Mode! Activate!

R2 : Machiner Fortress is gay. True story.

Match 4 : VS Xiaocola (Chain Burn)

R3 : Lava Golem punch him ftw!

3-1 (Get into Top 6)

Short Team Tourney Report (13/12)

I was in the same team with Aaron and Jin Hao.

I was running Oppression BF , same as Aaron, while Jin Hao ran Tragedylords.

Match 1 : VS ?? (Dimensional Eatos)
OO
R1 : Never got Starlight Roaded. Beated him down
R2 : Forgot...

My team won.

Match 2 : VS Shi Fu (Lightlord)
XX
R1 and R2 : Bad hand. He somehow always destroys my Oppression and i cannot beat his Wulf.

My team lost this match.

Match 3 : VS Max (BF)
XX
R1 : Oppression stopped him for awhile. Then he destoryed it , and swarmed with his big hand.
R2 : Bad moves....died

So...Our team was out.

Abit disappointed in my performance. I feel that i let down my team.

On the bright side , i got over the fear of playing against DD Eatos decks.

that's all. Playing Volcanics again!

Bye

Saturday, December 12, 2009

Extremely short tourney report (12/12)

I will now summarize my entire day in a few points. Cause some matches were abit blur.

Deck : Oppression BF
Format : Swiss of 4 Rounds

Match 1 : VS Banana (Gravekeeper)
OO
R1 : He used Royal Tribute to kill my hand. I topdeck Blizzard and used Goyo to control.
R2 : Used Black Whirlwind alot. Forgot how i won.

1-0

Match 2 : VS Wei Xiang (Twilight)
OO
R1 : I used DAD while he forgot that i had 3 DARKS, so he forgot to use his D.D. Crow
R2 : God hand. No self touching though. Just won

2-0

Match 3 : VS Kel (TragoGadgets)
OXO
R1 : Forgot..
R2 : Gadget Beatdown! He had answers to all of my stunts
R3 : Skill Successor is gay. But it was no match for Qualat!

3-0

Match 4 : VS Yew Long (King of Anti-Meta)
OXO
R1 : He brainwashed the wrong monster. I won shortly after
R2 : Anti-Meta is Anti-Meta. Topdecked a DAD with 7 DARKS while i was hanging on. GG
R3 : God Hand. Won. Nuff said.

4-0 (Undefeated to a certain extent)

Top 8 : VS Kel (TragoGadgets)

He needed to go already and told me that he will scoop to me if i gave him his entry fee. I did just that. The Top 4 prizes were good enough to cover the cost.

Top 4 : No one. Hong Rui and Zhen Hao needed to go. So...AUTO FINALS

Finals : VS Jin Hao (Twilight)

I'm going to sum up the entire match. A mixture of me getting bad hand for both duel and he getting a good starting caused me to lose in a disgraceful 0-2 manner.

Ranking : 2nd.

I took the Field Marshall.

Pleased to see that my bad luck streak is finally over. But i know that it will start again soon....Just hope that its not TOMORROW!!!!

Tomorrow is the Team Tournament. So i hope that i will be able to perform up to my team's expectations....

Bye.

Anti-Meta Volcanics V2

Monsters : 20

3 Volcanic Rocket
3 Volcanic Shell
3 Volcanic Scattershot
2 Royal Firestorm Guard
3 Thunder King Rai-Oh
2 Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer
1 Tragoedia
1 Battle Fader
1 D.D. Warrior Lady
1 Card Trooper

Spells : 7

2 Blaze Accelerator
1 Wild Fire
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Book of Moon
1 Scapegoat

Traps : 13

3 Royal Oppression
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force
1 Trap Dustshoot
2 Divine Wrath
2 Dimensional Prison
1 Solemn Judgment

- Added some Prisons to fend off annoying things like Stardust and Prime Material Dragon.
- Added another Acclerator , cause those Scattershots becomes dead sometimes without 2.
- Added Tragoedia , which can avoid Oppression and have a big ATK in this deck.
- Playing a playset of Raioh instead of 2, cause they are just godly. Nuff said.
- Removed Ryko in favor of D.D. Warrior Lady.

I'm trying to make this deck less affected by DD as possible. Please don't tell me to remove all the Volcanics, as it would just be Anti-Meta.

Anti-Meta = No creativity
Volcanic Anti-Meta = Creative

Leave some comments. Thanks.

Fixes would be VERY appreciated.

Bye

P.S : Please do not suggest Dark Bribe. I spent my budget on Tragoedia's. So no money.

A lot of upcoming things!

Title says it all. During the course of this week and next week , there will be some big events/releases. Which means.........more YGO!

Here's the List :

1) Machine SD is out! Looking forward to getting my Fortresses and Hand Severing for my Roids! BixyRoids FTW!

(Note: I didn't copy DS. I thought of running Roids before he posted his decklist...But the new SD has some good cards which i can add in.)

2) Khatib Team Tournament is this Sunday! First prize is a Fudo Yusei DX Duel Disk Set! Be sure to prepare yourselves and chiong all the way to Top 4!

3) Team Chalet is next Tuesday! Although Jinny will not be coming , we are still going to have fun. All i need to do is TRY to apply for leave from work.

Now.... Since the Team Tournament @ Khatib is at the end of this week. I would take this opportunity to type down a to-do list. For myself , of course. But you guys can also try it.

1) Make slower plays. Slow down on your plays and actually think about what to do.
2) Make your decks less vulnerable to RFG decks. ALOT of people will run it.
3) Dedicate your side-deck to countering RFG decks and GB. A little of BF also.


I wouldn't be worried too much about Lightlords *Targeting someone* and Zombies.

Anyways. The locals this Saturday would be a good chance to finalize my deck structure and the side-deck which i choose to run.

So.....Best of luck to everyone for Saturday and sunday.

Bye.

Scrubbing near Christmas

Christmas is 20 days away! And my scrubbing continues!

Went 0-3 with BF today!

Finally won in 4th round , but i gave the guy the win so that he can go Top 8.

Cause this is a giving season!

So unlucky today...

But its ok. 3 out of 5 of our team members got into Top 4. While Neuxcharge was at Khatib getting into Top 2...Dunno whether did he win or get 2nd. We will see =P

Anyways, after the random scrubbing , i realized a lot of things.

1) Completed my Flamvells today!
2) I gained 3kg within 1 month! OMGWTFBBQ! Must cut down on fast food!~
3) Mousehunt is fun!
4) I need TRAGOEDIAS!!!!!

Yup. Totally random.

That's all

Bye

Breaking the Road!


Opps! Wrong picture. But it looks like its chopping the Road. So i'll keep it here ^_^


Anyways, with the release of the super expensive mega awesome Starlight Road, everyone who can get their hands on 3 is randomly splashing it into their decks. Be it the gay Dimensional Eatos deck or even a normal BF deck, i see it everywhere!

So, It's actually making Dimensional Eatos a gay deck now , protecting its backrow.

And , for us who cannot afford to get 3 Starlight Roads, it simply means that we have to think of ways to GET AROUND it.

Off of my head, i can already think of some :

- Mahou Senshi Breaker!
- Dust Tornado! ($0.50 pwns $80)
- Trap Stun!
- Jinzo!

That's a few only. This is not very detailed because ALOT of people are blogging about this.

Bye.

Remember guys , Dust Tornado pwns Starlight Road anyday!

Weather Man

So apparently people are assuming that the decks i play will predict the weather of the day.

So i assume that this Saturday's going to be a windy day.

And that doesn't only mean Heavy Storm.

Monday, November 30, 2009

Trend

Just noticed that within the past few months , i have used decks that have a trend.

Like this :

October : Lightsworn (LIGHT)
Early November : Chaos Control (LIGHT/DARK)
Late November to now : Blackwings (DARK)

See the trend?

Its like a descend into darkness.

Truth be told , i didn't really like playing Lightsworn. Just didn't like the idea that the deck was running itself and i wasn't really in control of the deck. However , i've changed into playing Blackwings (Oppression Build). Its going fine , although its still a tough fight when playing against Lightsworn and Twilight Variants.

Still working on adapting to the playstyle. And i received an extra early Christmas present of the Yusei Duel Disk DX set. Its nice to have a Starlight Road randomly splashed into decks.

It's art is totally cool! ^_^

That's it for today.

Bye.

P.S : Tragoedia is annoying + gay

Tourney Report (27/11)

Went there at 10+. Jinny got his laptop back , cause the bubble tea lady helped him keep it.

There was a lot of people today , 18 to be exact.

Traded a lot , got stuff for Oppression BF. The games started

Format : Swiss
Deck used : Anti-Meta Volcanics

Match 1 : Sebas (BF)
XX
Round 1 : I hate BFs.....Icarus is god , true story
Round 2 : Same as above

0-1

Match 2 : Faz (Hopeless Dragon)
OO
Round 1 : D.D. Crowed his Norleras and Oppressioned him.
Round 2 : He Return from the D.D. all his Dragons , and i used Battle Fader. Won next turn.

1-1

Match 3 : Anthony (Plants)
XOX

To sum up the entire match : I hate Plants , Especially Amaryllis.

1-2

Match 4 : Yong Siang ( Hedgehog OTK?)
OXO
Round 1 : He played Give and Take to give me Ido.....But i beat him down with it.
Round 2 : Bolt Hedgehog + Zombie Carrier + Imperial Wall + Mass Driver = GG
Round 3 : Scattershots + Beatdown helped me win.

2-2

Now , there were 4 people including me with the same points , and there is 1 spot in Top 8. So , we play it out.

Match 5 : Kenneth (MGS AKB) =_=
XOO
Round 1 : He touched himself. I didn't stand a chance.
Round 2 : He got a call from Baha , and drew 3 Kushano and 2 Grimro , while i had Raiou, Kycoo and Oppression ^_^. Baha passed the bad luck to him.
Round 3 : Fliped Ryko to blow his monster , milled Scattershot when he had 300 LP ^_^

Match 6 : Yong Siang (again...)
OXO

The entire match was just like the previous one ,with him OTKing me in R2 ,and me winning somehow.

So i was in Top 8 , cool?

Top 8 : Jin Hao (Lightsworn)
OXO
Round 1 : Forgot how i won.
Round 2 : Honest killed me
Round 3 : Forgot again...

It was near 7 , and i had to go , so i dropped out and got myself a Gorz. Not bad for 4th.

It was a great showing for my deck , and it was great testing too. Good day indeed. Loved the duel between me and Kenneth. Epic! And the duel with Jinny was extremely tough too.

Bye!

Anti-Meta Volcanics


As title

Monsters : 20
3 Volcanic Rocket

3 Volcanic Shell

3 Volcanic Scattershot

1 Volcanic Counter

2 Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer

2 Thunder King Rai-Oh
2 Royal Firestorm Guard

1 Battle Fader

1 Ryko , Lightsworn Hunter

1 D.D. Crow

1 Card Trooper


Spells : 10

2 Blaze Accelerator
2 Wild Fire

1 Heavy Storm

1 Mystical Space Typhoon

1 Brain Control

1 Book of Moon

2 Shrink


Traps : 10

3 Royal Oppression

2 Bottomless Trap Hole

2 Divine Wrath
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force

1 Trap Dustshoot



I don't think there's really a need to explain how this works. Its basically a counter to all the meta decks with cards such as Royal Oppression and Divine Wrath. The standard Volcanic engine is used for destroying opposition threats , with Scattershot being a Lightning Vortex and a mini burn effect. Shells are used for single removal.

Kycoo and Thunder King Rai-Oh are here to further add to the anti-meta element , although it might sometimes clash with the Volcanic's effects. So use them at the right time. Finally , Wild Fire would be used when your opponent summons a swarm of monsters.

And , Royal Firestorm Guard would be draw power and recycle those Scattershots.

I will try to upgrade it more and use it this Saturday at the locals.

Give some fixes guys! I need help with this

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Scrubbing!

Yes , scrubbing is fun! Today's games proved it.

I had nothing better to do but to test out a random deck which i saw on the internet which was featured in a random Shonen Jump Championships...

I played Anti-Meta Volcanics

Not bad actually , controlled Lightsworns like no tomorrow, and it stood on par with Zombie Synchro , but losing out in the end.

And , it was SERIOUSLY funny watching JH and Banana play. You can say Banana's weakness is JH bah...?

Anyways , how i got 3 decks already! Finally picking off!

1) Anti-Meta Volcanics
2) Twilight Beat
3) D-Zero

Not bad !!! But i dunno what to play next week. Maybe roll a dice?

Can some people give me comments?

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Fusion! The Combination of Fun and Strength!

Yes. Posting such a fun post means that i'm out of my "emo" state already. However, it has taught me a valuable lesson. The lesson was divided into several points , mainly :

1) MOV is screwed up (No offense)
2) I'm pretty much not as good as i thought.
3) I need to improve myself more.
4) Scamming is bad.


Anyways. I've decided to post up EVERY SINGLE tournament report and specifically show my scores during each day. I want the world and myself see the pattern and the growth i will undergo. I know this post sounds very ridiculous and it makes me look like an idiot, but i'm just typing out how i feel right now.

I know my teammates also read this blog (Yes , i'm refering to you guys) , and i also want ALL of you to watch me.

Anyways , back onto the topic. I'm making a fun deck again! And its D-Zero!

Yes , some might say that its a competitive deck, but i have fun playing it. Absolute Zero is one of my favorite Elemental Heroes , next to Flame Wingman and its Shining Counterpart. So , its very cool for me.

Ok , gtg. Will post the decklist after tournament this Saturday.

Bye.

"Watch me. Not as i continue the journey, but how i will surpass all of you."

Recovering

Treat this as the Part 2 post of the Asia Qualifiers.

As i mentioned , i totally screwed up my plays and things yesterday.

But , i guess that the whole thing should be behind me.

The entire thing has broken my confidence and stomped me into the ground. I never expected to do so badly, losing out to JH and WX.

I need time to think about stuff.

bye.

Asia Qualifiers Pt.1

Not really in the mood to blog now. Very disappointed.

I'll just summarize it in some points.

1) Went to stay over at Jinny's place with Davin to playtest/crap
2) Woke up at 5am and went to Mac to eat breakfast. Met DY there
3) Meet the others at Clementi MRT and went to SMU
4) Also met Amos and Aaron at SMU and almost all Jurong players were there.
5) Games started. Trades were made.
6) Scrubbed with a score of 2-2
7) Saw a lot of scams.
8) Went home

Zzzz...In the end ,i got 57th out of 150+ people. Feel abit disappointed in myself. Not in the mood to blog anymore. I will stop here and continue tmr

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Calm before the storm

No. I don't mean the Heavy Storm post from Rauzes.

( For anyone who is curious as to what i would do, i would follow LGQ and JUST STORM IT!!!)

It is about 1 hour and 39 minutes more before i sit for my second last O level paper. The stress level has drastically went down from the start of the exams until now. I'm so looking forward to tomorrow 9Am , when my final paper would be finished and i will perhaps burn all of my useless books in memory of this battle. A lot of things are happening within these few days , mainly :

- End of O Level *Tomorrow*
- Graduation Night *Tomorrow*
- Preparation for Asia Qualifier *Saturday*
- Jurong Tournament *Saturday*
- Asia Qualifiers *Sunday*
- Prom Night *Monday*
- Start of work *Wednesday*

As you can see , i'm SUPER packed this week and the next 2 months. But , my job will come first before Yugimonz. May only play during the weekends.

On the side note , my deck which i am using for Asia Qualifiers is coming along fine. It handles Lightlords and GB's quite well , except for the occasional JD+JD+Beckoning Light. Need some cards which i'm borrowing from Neuxcharge to finish it.

There may be only 3 more days to the Asia Qualifiers , but i want to use as much time as i have in order to train for it. Which would be.....the whole of Saturday?

That's it for today , bye bye

P.S : Anyone can give ideas on how to control Lightlords?

Absolute Powerforce

Went around everywhere to feel some ABPF packs today.

Spent a total of nearly $50 and got these :

Drill Warrior 3D
Savior Demon Dragon
Sun Dragon Inti
Reptiless Vasuki
Priest of the Sun
Demon's Chain *WOOT*

Plus a pile of commons and rare.

Dude...This set is REALLY hard to feel...We bombed ALOT.

Nevertheless , its still worth it

Monday, November 9, 2009

Testing : Chaos Control

Dismantled my Lightlord deck. Decided to go for something new.

Tested it with my teammates today. Found some flaws and upgraded it a little.

Changes :

1) Took out the GK Spies. i always drew both due to my little draw power.
2) Took out the Krebons and the E-Teleport. I found it abit....inconsistant.
3) Added some Shuras and Gale. Found this to be a easier synchro method.
4) Added Anti-meta elements.

Tested it with my Lightsworn before dismantling it and won it 12-4 without siding. Not bad.

Will update more soon

Short Tourney Report

Tournament report in about 5 points :

1) Went to Jurong East at 11+

2) Met and chatted with some friends.

3) Got some good trades and buys.

4) Missed Top 6.

5) Went home after looking at next week's prize.


Grats to Jin Hao again for getting 1st again...Godmode. Plus , it was a good showing for our team this week. 6 of our team members entered and 3 went into top 6. Not bad. However, this tourney has made me lose a little confidence in my skills and deck. Don't get me wrong though , Lightsworn is good. But , maybe i wasn't in my groove today. Haiz...Failed to meet my expectations.

Next week is the Asia Tourney , so i cannot just sit back and do nothing. I need to practice more. There are tournaments the day before Asia Qualifiers. Maybe i will play another deck? I was thinking Chaos Control while i was going home since i just got 1 playset of Raiou. Maybe bah. If i would just stick to my Twilight.

As much as i love my decks, i don't really like the name "Twilight". Could be due to the book...

Bye.

Growth

Making this super quick post before i go study.

Anyone reads Initial D manga?

Cause i'm going to use an example from there to describe my situation.

In the manga, in order to train for the harder opponents which Project D is going to face, Takahashi Ryosuke made his brother , Keisuke , undergo acceleration training. Under this training , Keisuke is suppose to complete a run in their home course in the time specified by Ryosuke. Yes, on the dot. If he fails to do so, he would need to write down on a notebook the difference in the timing , no matter faster or slower than the time specified , and he has to understand himself why he failed to meet the target.

I would adopt this training as my own.

Although i have little time to train for the Asia Qualifiers next Sunday, i will have to make do with as much time as i have. Under this period , i would undergo excessive deck testing with my teammates after my final O Level paper and the weekends. I would ask them to go all out and use whatever deck they have against the deck i'm entering. Should i fail to win the opponent , i would have to explain to myself why did i lose and what was my mistake. This way , i would be able to learn from the mistake and go all out during the Qualifiers.

This would be the starting of my growth as a duelist , and as a competitive player.

Yup, thats how determined i am. Not saying that i have to win the Qualifier. I must want to do my utmost best there.

That's all , gtg to study.

Bye! And props to Keisuke! FD!!!!

O Level so far.

So far it has been fine. English and E Maths were not much of a problem. A Maths stressed me out alot , but regardless , i still managed do much of the problems.

Tomorrow would be another week of papers for me. I'm only scared of Monday's papers which are Social Studies and Chemistry. I fear that stress might cause me to forget all the facts about the essays i must write for Social Studies. Plus , I have no idea whether i'm prepared for Chemistry. I feel like i'm done revising , but at other times , i feel that i haven't finished it.

Haizz...Going to spend most of today doing Chemistry, and a quick read of Social Studies at night.

12 more days to the end of O Level!

And after that , it will be YGO , YGO and uh......YGO!!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Resolve

Let's face it, sometimes YGO in Singapore is pretty routine.

1) You look at someones binder.
2) There is no money cards (Allure, Catastor , Brionac , etc etc etc)
3) Immediately return the binder to the other person without further looking.

Sometimes, people are this realistic.

I myself don't have a good binder at all. Some of you may know.

That's why, I fail in comparison to others whom have a godly binder.

Thus, I can only think of 2 ways to go in this situation.

1) Be a good trader with a good capital and grow your binder.
2) Beat them in terms of skills.

Option 1 is definitely out for me, cause i have no capital at all ($10 per week is NOT capital).
Option 2 seems to be the only route left.

Thus , the post's title.

Yes. I know about Rauzes' post on luck. But the point of sharpening and strengthening your skills is to decrease the percentage of your win which depends on your luck. You would rather luck to play a 1% part rather than a 50% part in your duels , right? Thus , luck still plays a vital part in our everyday dueling/tournaments , but we also need skills to reduce the weight of luck in our chances of winning.


14th and 15th of November will be the stage.


In other news : I did ok for both English and EMaths. Expecting both to be A2 or A1 if lucky. But , today is A Maths paper 1 , and i'm abit worried. Hopefully i can get a B3 or even an A2.

Shoutout

Dedicating this shoutout to Neuxcharge!!

Don't be sad...Lightlord will sometimes screw your day up , but that's what is so fun about Lightlord right? You never know what will happen next.

So turn that frown upside down and be that random psychotic hyper optimistic Neux which i knew whom always called me SazabiGal.

Don't worry! Be happy!

Next time treat you to drink bah.

Don't be sad! You sad = Me also sad = cats die = Jin Hao scold vulgarities = BAD!!!

So............ (^_^)

Asia Tournament 2010

Got the latest updated. The 3 cards below are allowed for the tournament.

- Gorz , Emissary of Darkness
- Raiou
- Gold Sarcophagus


Comments : Zzzzz....Why do i get the feeling that this will encourage more Anti-Meta decks?

Raiou => Screws Lightlord.

Now must slowly poke opponent with lowest ATK monsters to prevent too much damage from Gorz.

Gold Sarcophagus would be good cause i could have a chance to play my Fish deck. But , sadly , the dealer whom was going to sell me my 2 Sarcos sold it to other guy. (Ask Axehead)

Now , i am very confused about what to bring for that day...Should i side some Fissures for the Raiou problem? I predict that there will be an outbreak of D.D. Anti Meta , Gadgets and the all so famous Akira Control!!

Machiner's Force + New Decks done!

Read the spoilers on the new SD coming soon. Reprints of Hand Severing and Dimensional Prison. OMG......If there are more good reprints , i'm so getting 3 of the deck....

In other news , 95% of my Fish deck is done and 92% of my Yusei deck is done. Just need a few more things to complete both of them.

After they are done , i will have 4 decks!!!

- Lightlord
- AKB
- Fish Synchro
- Yusei Deck

Whats next? Infernities? Definitely not Zombie Synchro , as its like so ex.....

I could consider these :

- D.D. GB
- Infernities
- Hurricane Beat?

I don't know. O's in 11 days. I'm very scared now.....

Random Thoughts #3

Actually , Great Tornado would be a good addition to Rauze's Junk and Debris Zero. Just take out some stuff for a few Divine Fowl King Alector and its good to go.

Oh , and maybe 1 more Poly/Miracle Fusion.

But it would mean removing the Debris Dragons if needed.

Hm...

I'll have to think about that. Maybe a few more versetile WIND targets will do?

Hurricane


Great Tornado Beat wasn't going well. So i decided to combine two of the best HERO's in the current game. Absolute Zero and Great Tornado together!

Its still in the testing stage , so i'm not sure whether it will run well. Nevertheless , its a work in progress.


May i present : Hurricane Beat V1

Monsters : 18

1 Elemental Hero Stratos
2 Divine Fowl King Alector
3 Debris Dragon
3 King of the Swamp
2 Elemental Hero Neos Alius
1 Elemental Hero Avian
2 Elemental Hero Ocean
2 Falcon of the Mist Valley
1 Dragon Ice
1 Elemental Hero Voltic

Spells : 22

3 E-Emergency Call
3 Fusion Sage
3 Fusion Recovery
3 Polymerization
1 Future Fusion
2 Gold Sarcophagus
3 Miracle Fusion
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Thypoon
1 Giant Trunade
1 Pot of Avarice


Extra Deck :

Some Generic Synchros
1 Gungnir , Dragon of the Ice Boundary
3 Elemental Hero Absolute Zero
3 Elemental Hero Great Tornado
1 Elemental Hero Wild Wingman

Targets for Absolute Zero : Ocean , Itself , King of the Swamp and Dragon Ice
Targets for Great Tornado : Falcon , Debris Dragon and Divine Fowl King Alector

Avian is used to gain access to Wild Wingman to clear some M/T. Its also used for the fun of it as its can be WIND target for Great Tornado and it can be the HERO part for Zero and Tornado.

Debris Dragon + King of the Swamp = Gungnir , for some field clearing

With Lightlords dominating and Zombie Synchro , etc etc, Divine Fowl King can be special summoned easily.

Comments below. TY

BRB

SUPER HIGH MODE!!!!

MUHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAH!!!!!

Epicness!!!

Great Tornado!

My predictions so good. Few days after i commented on that card , then its going to be released. This is too awesome. Going to grab 3 of them straight away after it is released.

Yes!

Starting to build my Great Tornado Beat (GTB) soon!!!

Yuki Judai



Yes. This post is dedicated to the one character in Yu-Gi-Oh! which taught me about the fun in dueling. I started listening to some of the songs of GX a few days ago , which reminded me of how fun it was to duel a few years back when i was just a mere Secondary 1 student using a Hero Deck. Yes, those were really good times...Especially game winners such as killing Light and Darkness Dragon with your Shining Flare Wingman...Epic

Judai was the first character which interested me. His deck seemed so fun to play with , and the next thing you know , i was collecting every single HERO there is to collect. But , as i grew up , competition grew onto me and soon i was playing meta decks and other Tier 1-2 decks.

So, in recognition to the hero whom gave excitement into my dueling life , i will be recreating Yuki Judai's Hero Deck. Now i know that there are alot of varieties to what his deck can be ( Neo Spacian , E.Hero , E-Hero , N-Hero , blahblahbalh...) , but i will simply stick to the Hero section of his deck which attracted me during my younger days.

So , this would be what i could be making :




Signature Deck : Yuki Judai
Monsters : 17


E.Hero Sparkman
E.Hero Featherman
E.Hero Burstlady

E.Hero Clayman
E.Hero Bubbleman
E.Hero Necro Darkman

E.Hero Edgeman

E.Hero Wildman

E.Hero Airman

E.Hero Prismer
Wroughtweiler

Hane Kuriboh

Honest

Card Trooper

Necro Gardna

Dandylion

Card Excluder


Spells : 16

H - Heated Heart
E - Emergency Call
R - Rightous Justice
O - Oversoul

HERO Flash!

The Warrior Returning Alive

Polymerization

Polymerization

Miracle Fusion

Fusion Recovery

Flute of Summoning Kuriboh
Dark Factory of Mass Production

Fusion Sage

Skyscraper

De-Fusion

Hope of Fifth

Traps : 7

A Hero Emerges
Hero Signal

Mirror Force

Negate Attack

Hero Barrier

Solemn Judgement

Dimensional Tunnel - Mirror Gate

Extra : 14

E.Hero Flame Wingman
E.Hero Thunder Giant
E.Hero Wild Jaggerman

E.Hero Wild Wingman

E.Hero Mariner

E.Hero Shining Flare Wingman
E.Hero Plasma Viceman
E.Hero Dark Brightman

E.Hero Necroid Shaman

E.Hero Tempester

E.Hero Mudballman

E.Hero Rampart Blaster
E.Hero Electrum

E.Hero Steam Healer


That is my tribute to Yuki Judai. HERO!!!

Side Note ---> This guy is pro

Random Thoughts #2

It is 20 days before the first O Level Paper, and i cannot seem to focus on studying 1 subject for more than 1 hour...

Ok. I feel abit more better now. Going to study again.

Lucksworn + Advertisement

Finished my Lightsworn deck today. Wanted to finish it ASAP so that i can concentrate on my studies without worrying about the upcoming Asia Tournament. However , i don't have JAP Beckoning Light...

All well...That can be easier replaced/obtained.

I know that its not good to advertise on blogs such as this. But its for my friend.

Report (3/10) + Some News

I'm going to summarise yesterday in pointers , cause i'm very tired.

1) Met with Neuxcharge and went to

2) Lost badly due to bad hands and misplays on my part.

3) Went to Bishan for party.

4) Got ALOT of stuff.

5) Went home with a bad stomachache ( I would blame the excessive comsumption of curry and soft drinks)

Sorry for the short report, cause i'm really tired.

Meanwhile , i've got enough funds to make myself another deck!!!

SG Asia Tournament

Wooooooot! My O Level's are already over by then , so thats SUPER good. Chance for me to play after months of studying.

Results ( Part 2 ) + NEW TARGETS!!

Targeted Results

English : A2
E Maths : A1
A Maths : B3
Biology : B3
Chemistry : A2
Physics : Pass
Literature : A2
Combined Humanities : A2


Actual Results


English : B3
E Maths : A2
A Maths : B4
Chemistry : D7
Biology : B4
Physics : C5
Combined Humanities : B4
Literature : A2
Chinese : A2

L1R4 : 13
L1R5 : 17


The figures says it all. I didn't do as well as i predicted.

Pros :

1) Literature
2) Physics
3) English (I got 69.4/100 , which SHOULD have been an A2)


Cons :

1) CHEMISTRY!!!
2) Combined Humanities
3) Biology


I will be concentrating on the cons section more during my revisions , especially my Sciences. I'm not too worried about both Maths , cause i just need more practice. No problems with the languages. Combined Humanities was expected , since the whole cohort did badly. Starting to get really worried about my Sciences.

So, I'm setting a realistic target for my O Level :

English : A2
E Maths : A2
A Maths : B3
Biology : A2
Chemistry : B3 - A2
Physics : B4 - B3
Chinese : A2
Literature : A2
Combined Humanities : A1

L1R4 : 9
L1R5 : 11

25 more days to the first O Level Paper. ( I think?)

And.........I'M GONNA ACE IT!!!!!!

I cannot believe that there will be a day which i would say such a thing, but the truth has to be told.

I FAILED MY CHEMISTRY PRELIM PAPER!!!


WTH......I'm so depressed over this. Over the course of my secondary school life , i have NEVER failed Chemistry and you could say that it was my favorite subject next to English and Literature. To add insult to injury , even my Physics was better than the score i got for Chemistry. We're talking about PHYSICS!! , the one subject which i can never pass , but i got a C5 this time...

Haiz....I'm very disappointed in myself. Its 26 days to O Levels and this is the result for all the effort i have put in to study Chemistry. I'm going to stop blogging for awhile , on weekdays , cause i'm going to put 90% of the time i have right now to studying.

Yes. That means no more videos , no more tournaments, no more Life.

For 1 month , i will become a slave to my textbook , reading and doing everything i need to change my D7 in Chemistry to an A2. That applies for all my other subjects of course.

So , i doubt i will be going to Khatib this Saturday , or any Saturdays for that matter.

Haiz...What a great birthday present this is.

Brb....

Results (Part 1) + Updates

Sheesh...After a long period of prelims , it was time to head back to school to get our results and go through them.

I got back :

Combined Humanities = B4
Literature = A2
Chinese = A2

The rest are not completely returned , so i won't mention them.

Not bad if i were to say so myself. Perfectly logical explanation for the B is because a lot of people failed the SS section of the subject, so B4 isn't really as bad as people would think.

Bad news : I failed to get A1 for my EMaths paper 1...sobz..

Anyways , back to YGO. I'm still deciding whether should i go Khatib or Jurong East this Saturday. If i go Khatib , it would be easier to head to Bishan after that for my birthday party at my aunt's house. But i sort of feel bad for missing out on Bryan's tournament.

I'll have to think about it.

Will be testing out my Cat Synchro (again...)

Seriously , i have no idea why i'm so obsessed with the cat. Is it because i coulden't play it the last format? Or could it be because i have no other deck which i can afford at the moment and coincidentally i only have this deck so i can only use this?

After the tournament , i will post the video on the Cat Synchro deck.

Read the other Natural Synchro monster's effect.

*Discard 1 Trap Card to negate the special summoning of a monster and destroy it*

Things just can't get any better. Much better in this format than Balkion.

Crossroad

Power Cat or Renew Cat?

Readers , please help me choose.

Do not consider what the deck might/do/should contain. Just choose.

Your choice will determine the deck which i'll play for....next week?

You can choose based on your mood? Your favor of the letters P or R?

Post your answers on the comments section or on the tagboard and when i bring the deck to any upcoming tournament , after the event , i will reveal the decklist. Its as simple as that.

So , help me on this guys...Thanks.

*Random* SUCCESS!!

After retesting Experiment 2 (Refer to previous post) , tearing it apart and reforming it, i have came up with a consistent build. Some of you may have seen this as Banana from the SG forums has played it before. However , i believe that there is a difference between both builds. Mine is according to what i have , my style and.....is more cheap?

So , here comes "Random E2.2"


Monsters : 20

2 Gigaplant
2 Lonefire Blossom
1 Lord Poison
1 UFO Turtle
1 Gladiator Beast Retiari
1 Gladiator Beast Bestiari
1 Gladiator Beast Murmillo
1 Gladiator Beast Darius
1 Gladiator Beast Laquari
1 Gladiator Beast Samnite
1 Test Ape
1 Summoner Monk
1 Rescue Cat
2 X Saber Airbellum
1 Sea Koala
1 Gorz , Emissary of Darkness
1 Sangan

Spells : 12

2 Gladiator Proving Ground
1 My Body as a Shield
1 Shrink
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Thypoon
1 Mind Control
1 Giant Trunade
1 Brain Control
1 Book of Moon
2 Pot of Avarice

Traps : 8

1 Trap Dustshoot
1 Mirror Force
1 Torrential Tribute
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Waboku
1 Call of the Haunted

This is essentially GB+AKB+Plants. I tried BF , but i would want to side in Shadow Mirrors often in my duels and i don't want my deck to be affected too much. I also sided some Chariots in case i want some negation , especially on decks like Zombie Synchro and/or Gladiator Beast , and not to mention Lightsworn.

Its currently under testing. So , feel free to give comments. The extra deck is pretty much normal for a GB deck. The sidedeck is mostly on countering other decks.

3 Shadow Imprisoning Mirror
3 Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer
1 Gladiator Beast Equeste
2 Gladiator Beast War Chariot
2 Twister
3 Mirror of Oaths
1 The Transmigration Prophecy

I would like to add a Camellia , but i can't find a cheap one as of yet.

Fixes/Improvements will be appreciated , but i would like it to stick to the whole GB+AKB+Plants act, unless you will take out 1/3 of the deck and fit another acceptable and consistent theme.

BRB. And TY

Exam Status + New Deck!!

My exams are almost finished, it's gonna end next Monday.

It's been really stressful days, studying everywhere , from the toliet to the seats on the bus. Regardless , it's gonna end soon , and the BIG storm will come. But before that , i will take a well deserved 2-3 days break.

Back onto the topic. After the powerful performance by the Twilight Beat deck ( Akira Control ) , which has won many tournaments this month, i thought it was time for me to test out making my own decks. So , i used cards which i had and experimented. Of course , there will failures.

Experiment 1 : Lightlord Synchro

Basically Lightlord without Judgement Dragon , with teched Psychics to allow reuse of Telekinetic Power Well. Wasn't really consistant , and i drew alot of Krebons. So , at the moment ...FAIL

Experiment 2 : Random

GB + BF + AKB with Autonomous Action Units. Something like http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/sjc/2009_08_Indianapolis/deckanalysis_sseuring.html
Wasn't really nice with the limiting of Mind Control, and it was really random. SHELFED

Experiment 3 : AKBF

Now, this was what i was talking about. Although it may not be original (I think?), but it was really working well , consistantly OTKing at times , while controling at other times. ACCEPTED!!!

Without further ado , i present : SazaBF Beat


Monsters : 21

1 Gorz , Emissary of Darkness
1 Dark Armed Dragon
1 Cyber Dragon

Fish and Chips!

Fish Synchro

Monsters : 18

3 Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth
3 Oyster Meister
3 Royal Swamp Eel
3 Abyssal Kingshark
3 Golden Flying Fish
3 Fishborg Gunner

Spells : 16

3 Mausoleum of the Deceased Emperor
3 Hand Destruction
3 Moray of Greed
1 Heavy Storm
1 Giant Trunade
1 Mystical Space Thypoon
2 Terraforming
1 Swords of Revealing Light
1 Card Destruction

Traps : 6

3 Trap Stun
3 Royal Decree

Even without Dark Dive, this deck is still a force to reckon with. It may not be the same decklist , but Fishes got a good placing at the locals at Khatib a few days ago.

With AOJ Decisive Arms , Gungnir , the other generic Synchros still available, this deck is still good. I don't use Allures or other draw engines cause i want this to be as cheap as possible. Budget building!


Light Blackwing

Monsters : 21

1 Gorz , Emissary of Darkness
1 Dark Armed Dragon
2 Chaos Sorceror
3 Blackwing , Shura the Azure Flame
3 Blackwing , Kalut the Moonshadow
1 Blackwing , Blizzard the Far North
1 Blackwing , Gale the Whirlwind
3 Thunder King Rai-Oh
3 Honest
1 Paladin of the Cursed Dragon
2 D.D. Warrior Lady

Spells : 10

2 Allure of Darkness
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Thypoon
1 Giant Trunade
2 Book Of Moon
1 Scapegoat
1 Swords of Revealing Light
1 Instant Fusion

Traps : 9

2 Icarus Attack
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force
1 Trap Dustshoot
1 Solemn Judgement
1 Trap Hole

Light Blackwing has been dominating the locals here for nearly a month now. No , its not ran by everyone , but it is ran by a single person whom has been winning all the tournaments with the deck. However , i do not know the decklist , so this is my own version.

That's all for today. May start saving up to build both of these decks

Tourney Report + Hari Raiya Tournament

Went to study for awhile at Jurong East Library before going to T3 for the tournament. Didn't feel like playing my decks today after testing with Melvin and Axehead. So , i borrowed a Skill Drain Plant deck from Neuxcharge to play with.

Deck : Skill Drain Plant

Format : Double Elimination

Match 1 : VS Yong Siang ( Geartown + Zombies )
OO

Round 1 : Didn't remember much , but i won with a smack from Gigaplant
Round 2 : Didn't remember either. Sorry...

1-0

Match 2 : VS Akira ( Light Blackwing)
XOX

Round 1 : He stops everything i did....Raiou + Honest + BF's
Round 2 : Didn't side anything. Won
Round 3 : I had 2700. He Brained my Dandy , summoned Honest and had a Kalut. LOL?

1-1

Match 3 : VS Alex ( AKB GB)

XOO

Round 1 : The usual GB moves , burns my hand out
Round 2 : Sided Mirrors of Oath. Didn't get any , but stoped his GB's and rammed with Giga and Camellia.
Round 3 : Some minor issues with me forgetting to put 1 card back. He was kind enough to allow a replay. Then went to beat with Skill Drain and Gigaplant

2-1

Break : Played around with some others. Chatted with Neux and traded.

Match 4 : VS Yew Long ( Anti Meta)

XX

Round 1 : Banisher is gay.....
Round 2 : Oppression is gay...

2-2 (OUT)

Finished around 9th - 10th? Nevertheless , it was a fun experience playing a Plant deck. Maybe i should borrow Neux's decks more often? Got some stuff for my J&D Permisson and left.

There will be a Hari Raiya tournament on Monday. All of the prizes would be Extra Pack 2 foils. For more information , go to : http://sg-ygo.userboard.net/ygo-game-events-singapore-f2/hari-raiya-exp2-tournament-jurong-east-t2188.htm

Hope some readers can go down and join!!

I myself may not be joining , cause i want to study. But i might drop by.

BRB

P.S : Props to Neuxcharge for a great Plant deck! Next time borrow your Lightsworn

AKB just got a new toy~





















Anyone checked the new Dt07 cards?

Search "Natural Landors"

Divine Wrath in a can.

On the other side of things, i scooped in my A Maths Paper 1 today. I can give up on getting A1. Perhaps an A2.

Natural Beast + Palkion + Landors = Total Lockdown!!!

Gonna get one ASAP as soon as it comes out!

In other news, I would expect a rise in AKB decks after DT07 out. That's good news for sticking to AKB. Must keep your hopes in the cat!!!

Also ordered my Natural Beast. Better get it fast before the turtle comes out.

WANTS

1x Natural Beast

Finally , to end off this extremely short and quick post before i go to sleep, I'm heading down to the Jurong tournament this Saturday to test out my AKB deck (No Volcanics , LOL). Cannot resist ,and i want to destress myself. Besides , who can refuse a DT01 Brionac , Vayu , Dark End , etc etc as prizes.

Hope you guys can go down too!!

Tournament Report (12th September)

Today , i went to the tournament at Jurong East. Went studying before headed to there. There were only 8 players today , but there were still 2 good prizes up today. Also , with Extra Pack 2 coming in , everyone was spamming the packs there for the cards.

I got 4 packs , getting :

Tempest Magician

Just what i wanted, but................................i didn't get the common rare Night's End Sorcerer!!!

Damm...i can't make my Magic Cat deck yet.

Round 2 : Distracted by the arrival of EXP2 , but i won with Goyo.


Match 2 : VS Jin Hao (Lightsworn)

Match 3 : VS Rui Feng (Graveyard Anti-Meta BF)

OXX
