Buttt....i didn't make it into Top 8. Think i was around 9th-10th?

Anyways, had fun playing this deck, so i'll go back and mod it abit more. Saw some flaws today and it was quite a good experience for me.

- Tanngnjóstr allows you to make Black Rose plays by itself, summoning Guldfaxe.

- Gleipnir acts as a dummy MST target to gain advantage.

- Forbidden Holy Lance helps protect your Thor from stuff like Dimensional Prison

- Hamster into Tanngnjostr allows you to make any Lvl 7-8 Synchro, mainly Scrap Dragon so that you can use its effect to gain advantage.



Go ahead!

Have a try at this deck!

I had alot of fun playing with this deck, summoning Thor so easily and reviving it like mad XD

So, no more packs for me! Must start saving money to put back.

That is....

Bye!

Holidays are coming to an end...

Means...less YGO XD


Ya, i realized that i haven't been active in YGO much during the holidays either. -_-


Because of my little brother's preparation for PSLE, i haven't been able to play much. The only times i remember playing quite a lot is during the pre-selections for Asia Qualifiers. I guess i will put out some time from schoolwork to go down to the locals like my first semester.


Anyways, back on track here, scrubbed during last week's pre-selection @ Gamehaven. So, i'm hoping that this week, i can hopefully secure a place in the Top 8. I promise a tournament report this Sunday after i come back, regardless of whether i scrubbed or not.


Using a very uncommon deck for this last selection =P


Hope it gives me an edge over the other expected decks.


I guess that's all i have, not much ideas to work on right now, unless someone can sell me 1 Volcanic Shell XD It's ok i guess, i have 2 deck lists in mind for 2 articles which i think i will be typing out next week, either in class or at home. Stay tuned for these upcoming stuff, i promise i'll type them out! No matter how lazy i am

Bye!

Tournament Report @ Jurong East (15th Oct)

Got my Zephyros, which was cool.

Entered cause there was a lack of people and it means win/lose also also can early go.


_______________________________________________________________

Deck used : BF

Format : 3 Rounds of Swiss. Win first 2 = Auto Top 4.


Match 1 : Faz (Dandy Scraps)
OO

Game 1 : Early advantage with Whirlwind. Solemn Warning controlled him.
Game 2 : Prevented all his Grannel's from coming, while destroying Snowman's with Icarus.


Match 2 : Hongli (Machina Gadget)
OXO

Game 1 : Kept on using Solemn Warning on his gadget and Gearframe, which allowed me to swarm and win
Game 2 : Holy Light controlled me, with a monster hand
Game 3 : Skill Drain helped me win this game. He completely didn't expect it.


So i auto Top 4'ed, if there is such a word.


Here comes the stupid part. Had to leave early, so i passed Wee Min my deck and asked him to play for me, which got me 4th, and a PP4.


Ranking : 4th

______________________________________________________________

Oh well, at least i didn't use up my luck XD

Must gather luck for tomorrow. Tomorrow is more important!

Expect a report tomorrow.

Bye!

Team Tournament Pre-Selection Event @ Khatib Report!

My team was :

Team Garfield (Stupid name ftw...)

Me (Leader) = BF
Rong Jie (Member A) = GB
Wee Min (Member B) = Quickdraw Dandy

There was only 6 teams today.. =_=

Nothing interesting from our 12 packs too, as the Scrap Dragon was taken by a certain someone =P


_________________________________________________________________

Round 1 : Team ABCDE (Aaron, Jia Jie and Timothy)

Me VS Aaron = WIN
Rong Jie VS Jia Jie = WIN
Wee Min VS Timothy = LOSE

Round 1 : Controlled him with Oppression, Solemn Warning and Solemn Judgment.
Round 2 : Forgot how i died XD
Round 3 : Controlled him again and gained advantage through Black Whirlwind.


Round 2 : Team ???? (Jeff, Xiao Mei, Baha)

Me VS Jeff (LOSE)
Rong Jie VS Xiao Mei (WIN)
Wee Min VS Baha (LOSE)

Round 1 : Lost to Swallow's Nest
Round 2 : He summoned Dark Armed and Goyo, but i turned the table with Sirocco focusing.
Round 3 : Also lost to Swallow's Nest, that card too strong le.

__________________________________________________________________

So in the end we died in the semi finals, like i said, the semi final's part is just to make us feel better from scrubbing.. -_-

There was supposed to be a normal tourney, but there wasn't enough people, so it was canceled. I spent the afternoon testing Chest BF with random decks like mirror match, Hero Beat, Infernity (with Barrier), X-Sabers (TCG) and other kinds of random stuff. Nobody was selling Trishula, so i didn't get a chance to buy 1.

Sad.

I think i'll try to go for another selection, most likely the fourth one. $12 is damm pain ok?

That's all for today,

Bye!

Saturday, October 2, 2010

OCG X-Sabers

Yes!


They finally topped a tournament in Japan!


About time man, was wondering when will it happen.


Just abit curious to why there is no Saber Holes inside, not even 1.


In other news, i'm totally hyped up about next week's selection. Too bad i had to miss the one happening today. In anticipation to it, i went to dig up my pile of cards in the storeroom for some inspiration, but all i found was....A LOT of Volcanic Shells.


LOL!


An omen? Or just to show how stupid i was when Force of the Breaker came out? I have no idea.


But it's cool. I'll most probably edit my Sabers abit more until i think it's ready to bring to some tournament where i won't see any Darksouls... @_@ no money buy.

That's all for today,

Good luck to everyone playing today (Or playing right now for the first selections!)

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Asia Qualifers Plus is coming!

That's right!


The first selection is on next week! Which is so coincidentally 2 days before my birthday.


So have you guys decided on what decks to play yet?


As we all know, the combination of 3 decks to play would be decks which are independent and hold their own without commonly used cards.


Like : Frog Monarch + Heralds + Infernity?


Or : Quick-Dandy, Frog Monarch, Blackwings?


It's going to be real fun seeing all the new techs and decks which people will play in this team format.


That's all guys!

Back! Progress Report!

Back from my class chalet that was on Monday to Wednesday.



Here's a little update on some deck's i've been working on, and will be working/testing out in the next few days!


#1 : X-Sabers!

I'm working on a OCG build, with no Boggart Knight and Darksoul, mainly cause i have no money for them. Still tweeking around with some card choices and other stuff. Main issues are those which Darksoul helps prevents, which are dead Faultrolls and even losses of advantage.


#2 : Synchro Dog!



Yes! With Hamsters now available to us, i'm looking forward to testing this deck out. Slightly hyped in the first YCS of the September Banlist, this is what Synchro Cat has became with the banning of Rescue Cat, a core card. Thus, the deck now focuses on the Flamvell part of the deck, gaining access to multiple Synchro Summons in a single turn, something else Flamvell's are famous for, due to Rekindling.


#3 : Moja


Fun deck! Favorite combos include summoning Beast Striker and discarding Plaguespreader/Grow-up Bulb. Weaknesses includes the fact that the deck focuses too much on the summoning of King of the Beast, that removal from cards such as Caius, Dimensional Prison and Bottomless Trap Hole.


That's all for today!

Stay tuned for updates and decklists when i finalized them.

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Screw Frigg's Apple, I've got myself some goat!

Screw the damm Apple trap card!


We have better things to talk about in Storm of Ragnarok!


That's right: The Polar Star Beasts!!!


A lot of combos formed in my head while i was reading all of each and everyone of their effects. General support for this theme could be :


- Super-Mega Nimble Hamster

- Gravekeeper Engine? (Spy + Descendant)

- Green Baboon perhaps?

- Maybe even those Beast -Supports from DREV?


Off of my head, i could already form some combos, like....

1) Opp whack Hamster, Hamster dies
- Set a Ryko through Hamster effect, Special Summon PSB Tanngnjostr
- Next turn flip Ryko to destroy random S/T
- Change PSB Tanngnjostr to ATK mode to SP Gullfaxi
- Synchro for Trishula! (4+3+2)


2) Opp whack PSB Tanngrisnir, SP 2 tokens
- Special Summon PSB Tanngnjostr from hand
- Next turn switch position to Special Summon PSB Gullfaxi
- Tune 2 tokens and PSB Gullfaxi into Polar God Monarch - Thor!
- Activate that random Grow-up Bulb's effect and make a Armory Arm!


3) Opp whack into Gravekeeper's Spy and destroys it.
- Special summon another Spy and a PSB Tanngnjostr from your hand.
- Next turn, switch Tanngnjostr's position to Special Summon PSB Gullfaxi
- Tune the Spy with Gullfaxi for Scrap Dragon!
- Destroy your own Tanngnjostr and your opponent's card or something. +1!


Look at the potential! These guys aren't just normal goats , aren't they?


Wonder what will the Polar Star Spirits will be like...like their anime counterparts perhaps?


Oh well, we'll just have to wait for their effects.


Finally, as a final note, Kizan is too strong!


Yaichi + Kizan + Grandmaster + Shogun + Shogun

@_@

No Grandmaster also can play liao.

Extra Pack 3 Rarities

From another blog, it appears that..

- Gardestrike and Battlestorm are Ultras.

- The Super Rares are KKM Maximus, Swallow's Nest, Card Guard and Gateway of the SS.

...

......

.........


Thoughts? Am i the only one who thinks the rares (Emmersblade..) and the commons (Hamster..) are more useful? Sure, i know every card has it's uses, but i just don't see myself or others buying 1 box just for the foils. Looks like it's going to be singles for me then..


Going to get :

3 XX-Saber Emmersblade
3 Super Mega Nimble Hamster
2 Swallow's Nest
A few Gardestrikes if someone makes a decent X-Saber build with no TCG stuff.


LOL, i guess that's it for this meaningless post.

More Nobleman of Crossout fun after EXP3 is out!

Khatib Tournament (11/9/10)

Deck used : Whirlwind Black Feather

Format : 3 Round of Swiss


Match 1: Shelton (Lightlords)
OXX
Game 1: Beat him down with Shura and backup Bizzards
Game 2: Holy Light killed me when i had no outs to it.
Game 3: I guess it's the same as Game 2? Only this time he had other stuff.


Match 2: Pampers (Macro Monarch)
OO
Game 1: Beated him down.
Game 2: Same as Game 1.


Match 3: Clarence (Dimensional Eatos)
OO
Game 1: Beated him down with Shura + others
Game 2: Stalled with Snowman Eater, and proceed to counterattack with some Blizzards.


Top 16: Jeremy (Machina Gadget)
XOX
Game 1 : Rai-Oh controlled me, and he had too many answers to my summons.
Game 2 : Giant Trunade and Cyber Dragon gave me control.
Game 3 : Epic game. I DDV'ed him, making him lose 3 monsters. He used Gearframe to attack me continuously, while i kept on drawing no monsters and more DDV and Icarus Attack. Wanted to wait until he deplete his hand to summon Fortress so that i can Dark Hole him. But i lost in the end.


Learnt a lot today. Going back to tweek my deck a little more.

That's all for today.

Bye!

Thursday, September 9, 2010

Exams are over!

Yes! Exams are over! Which means more YGO!

Sorry for the lag of posts for the last weeks, as most of the time i was busy studying and preparing for my Final Term Papers. So now, i'm a free man!

I'll be heading down to Khatib this Saturday, hopefully with the cards i need from Joz. His mail hasn't arrived yet, so i'm short of some stuff.

Worst comes to worse, i'll just play without the stuff.

Today's 5D's episode was cool. Waiting for some manga chapters to be released.

That's all for today i guess. More updates coming soon!

Tourney Report (27th August)

Deck used : Blackwings

Format : Sept 1st Banlist, Swiss of 3 rounds.


-----------------------------------------------------------

1st Match : Xing You (Herald of Perfection)
XOO

R1: Herald on 1st turn with 5 hand, with me having a spell/trap hand. Kept my cards.

Some stuff to consider

So, starting this week, there are tournaments using the new Sept 1st Banlist already.

Which means fresh new deck ideas, new meta, etc.

For those whom do not have any ideas on what to run/tech/side, here's some reference for you to take a look.

As you can see, Whirlwind BF is still popping out in almost every team. Frog Emperor took 1st, which was surprising to me @_@.

The idea of Plant-Dragunity also seems very good and consistant, dumping Dandylion and Grow-Up Bulb through the use of Dragon Canyon, and providing 3 nukes with Debris Dragon, should the need arise.

I myself am still considering what to play this Friday/Saturday. So stay tuned for more posts!

Thursday, August 19, 2010

What to play next format?

Tough question?

It is to me...

Have no idea what to play for the next format. So many decks to choose from, so many ideas popping out every now and then while i'm studying XD

Obviously, with Black Rose Dragon going to 3, the next top deck would be between...


"QUICKDRAW DANDYWARRIOR VS SALVODAD"



That's right, both of which can just spam Black Rose from 1 card whenever they want to~

Next up in line would be Lightsworn, Blackwings and Gladiator Beast.

With no Heavy Storm and 2 MST, Gladiator Beast won't fear setting all of their M/T now, as they have an easy out to BRD also, the 2 MST's also dealing with Royal Decree @ 3.

More Twilight variants of Lightsworn will start popping out due to the Chaos Sorcerer going to 2.

Blackwings are still going strong even with the loss of 1 Whirlwind and 1 Oppression. Some people have to discussing about converting Blackwings into a Pseudo-Chaos deck, with mained Thunder Kings and Chaos Sorcerer (Not to be confused with Twilight Beat). 2 MST's also help deal with those pesky Bottomless Trap Holes while Delta Crow - Anti Reverse will act as a weakened Heavy Storm for them.


Now, we have those unaffected decks, like Heralds, Dragunity and Machina


Heralds get a boost from 3 Royal Decree.

Dragunity will have to be careful now due to everyone playing 2 MST.

Machina will have to be careful also, due to 3 Cyber Dragons.

3 Cyber Dragons also mean that the CYBER END DECKS ARE BACK! Now i just can Power Bond into Cyber End and smash right into your Ryko~ And drop Honest while i'm at it~

It also means that random Power Bond decks will pop out now. Maybe people will Power Bond summon Cyber Twin and OTK you for all i care. It happened to me once, and it wasn't funny at all.

And there are those other decks which i'm pretty lazy to mention , MGS, Frogs, etcetcetcetcidungiveashit.


That's my perspective.

So, up til the end of doing this post, i STILL don't know what to play...haiz...

bb!

Semi:
Mystical Space Typhoon
Chaos Sorcerer
Snipe Hunter
Ojama Trio
Magic Cylinder

Unlimited:

Black Rose Dragon
Goblin Zombie
Cyber Dragon
Treeborn Frog
Royal Decree
United We Stand



Comments :

1) What needs to be banned, got banned, which is good. Although abit sad for Rescue Cat~

2) Why Monster Reborn and Dark Hole come back? So broken cards still can come back...

3) Infernity got nerfed, as predicted. Gun at 1 and no hits for Archfiend makes it still playable.

4) CHAOS SORC IS BACK! CYBER DRAGON AT 3, means more threat for Machines.

and finally....









WHY THE FUCK IS BLACK ROSE DRAGON BACK TO 3?


When Dandylion didn't even get hit. Next top tier deck is confirmed to be Quickdraw DandyWarrior. They have 4 Dark Holes at their disposal, what else can go wrong? Encourages more people to play 2-3 Starlight Roads into their deck much?


PREDICTION for next meta :

1) Quickdraw DandyWarrior
2) Dragunity
3) Blackwings


Nuff said.

Explosive Beast Valcanon


1 Machine-Type monster + 1 Pyro-Type monster
When this card is Fusion Summoned, you can select 1 monster your opponent controls. Destroy this card and the selected card and send them to the Graveyard to inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of that selected monster.


So, i was just dabbling around with the card from the VJump Edition Pack, and the most interesting card was this. A "Ring of Destruction" effect, although you don't take damage from it, but in return, this guy has to go too. Although it may seem as a waste of cards as you have to Fusion Summon it which would mean :

- 1 Machine-Type Monster
- 1 Pyro-Type Monster
- 1 Polymerization

+1 Explosive Beast Valcanon

+1 Opponent's monster destroyed
-1 Explosive Beast Valcanon

= -2 in terms of advantage in exchange for potential LP damage to your opponent.


BUT!


When you play with things like GADGETS and VOLCANICS...

It just simplifies to :


-1 Polymerization


in exchange for

+1 Your opponent's monster destroyed + LP damage.


How cool is that? Although i perfectly agree with those whom just wan to Earth Smash the other monster/Fissure/Lightning Vortex/etc.

But i feel that this is a pretty cool concept, combining the self-replacement of Gadgets with the self-replacement of Volcanic Bullets and easy removal and advantage through Volcanic Rocket and Blaze Accelerator.

Wonder if people might make a deck out of it.

I'm trying to, if i can only get another copy of this guy...

That's all for today

Tournament Report @ Jurong East (14th August)

Today is the start of the YOG! What better way to celebrate by playing YGO!

======================================================

Deck used : Blackwings

Format : Swiss of 3 rounds, cut to Top 4


Match 1 : VS Eugene (Lightsworn)
OO

R1 : Swarm + Damudo beatdown.
R2 : Swarm + Vayu making Arms Wing.


Match 2 : VS Keith (FROG FTK)
OXO

R1: He got a bad hand. So i took the chance to rush him with Shura + other stuff.
R2: He started with a bad hand, then Card Destruction into a god hand... =_=
R3: Mind Crushed his Swap Frog and he had no fodder for Substitoad + Mass Driver. Rushed him before he drew too much.


2-0 (Auto into Top 4)


Top 4 : VS Milton (Blackwings)
XX

R1 : Damudo didn't save me!
R2 : He rushed me after i tried to rush him.


3rd/4th : VS Small Bryan (Machina Gadget)
XX

R1 : Forgot what happened
R2 : Fatal mistake caused me to lose.


Ranking : 4th.

================================================


I was allowed to take the VJump Pack after Bryan said he wanted the Wisel Infinity, so in a sense i was kinda lucky to get my prize today.

Looks like eating frog porridge really worked~

So this is the last tournament i enjoy before the banlist is released and i get the shock of my life. What else can go wrong? Thankfully, September 1st is still 2 weeks away~

Hope Chaos Sorcerer gets unlimited~

That's all for today.

Bye!

Holidays!

The holidays is here! (For me and some others that is...)

The Banlist is coming next week i think!

So the spirit of competition is kinda low for me.

Yup! Expect more posts now that i have nothing to do for 1 month other than studying..

Oyeah, i scrubbed 3 days ago at the Jurong East Tournament with Machina Gadget. Didn't really like that deck anyways. So i'm just sticking to my Cat deck until the banlist is out and crossing my fingers that Rescue Cat won't be banned like those leaked fake lists online on Pojo/otherforums.


Now,i don't really like speculating about these kind of ban list stuff, but i have some cards in mind which WOULD be hit, like....


Trishula!
Infernity Gun!
Infernity Daemon!
Substitoad!


I guess these will definitely get hit, but i'm not really sure about other cards. Machina Gearframe and Fortress might be hit somehow too. Hoping that X-Sabers won't be hurt as we haven't even gotten to use all the gayness yet in the OCG.

BF may not be hit too much either in order to further promote the BF supports which Crow will use in future episodes, also promoting the sales of the Duelist Pack! Because its all about $$$ for our Konami!

I'm pretty sure that Substitoad will 100% get hit (Mind Master says Hi!), hence destroying the Frog FTK and hurting Frog Monarchs.

Looking forward to Storm of Ragnarok and EXP3!

that's all for today!

Stay tuned for more posts coming your way!

That's all for now. Gotta listen to class.

Project work kills!

School says it's called "E-Learning Week".


I say : Go and eat shit. So much project work? Two 1.5k word reports + other random crap is not my idea of learning at home...

Yarh, so that's what i have been doing for the past whole week. No time for YGO this week, so missed quite a few tournaments. So not much things to blog about. I dismantled my Cat Synchro as i was a little bored with it already, plus bad scrubbing streak still hurts =P Changed into another deck to play with for next week! Can't wait for STBL and my new Elec supports!

Meanwhile, on the news side, Fleur Synchron and Fleur de Chevalier makes buying Tag Force 5 worth it!! I like how Fleur Synchron is abusable with Gadgets, while Chevalier is used in Quickdraw. Cool, good supports imo.

That's all for today..quite tired, so not blogging alot.

byebye!

Starstrike Blast : Cards i'm looking forward to!

I was going to do a post on some cards in EXP3. Then i realized that everyone should have already known what are the good cards in it and what to look out for (X-Sabers , Hamster). So instead, i'm doing a post on what cards i'm looking forward to in Starstrike Blast.

====================================================

1st : Elecs!

- Yup, these are the cards which i'm looking forward to the most. They will have their own Elec Wall (2 Crickets) which won't die to Brionac/Book of Moon! They will get their own COTH, Dragonfly would be like a Naturia Cliff for Elecs but abit weaker. Finally, Eleccastle and Eleckeeper are supports which Elecs need right now : Attack modification and resurrection to rush more. Expect me to come up with some random decklist after i can these cards.


2nd : Shooting Star Dragon + Formula Synchron

- Yup, the much looked forward to concept of Accel Synchro! Formula Synchron is easy to summon with any 1 star Tuner + Kinka-byo , as shown in a video posted by Duelingdays. Stardust is already easy to summon out with so many decks. Formula Synchron also acts as a protection for Stardust in case your opponent tries to remove it somehow, then you can just Accel Synchro for Shooting Star Dragon! I'll get 1 of each for collection, or more if it becomes a popular deck to play.


3rd : Power Breaker and Karakuri Ninja

- One word : Splashable. Power Breaker can be potential side deck tech against decks like BF. While Ninja is splashble in decks with its good effect. Sending Stardust to the grave is not funny at all, although it's DEF is rather weak compared to Snowman Eater.


All these are just the tip of the iceberg in my opinion, as the complete spoiler is not out yet. There might be even better cards in this set, so stay tuned for updates at Shriek

Thanks all for today, Bye!

Current X-Sabers

Not really playable currently.

The only thing we can make the deck around would be the Gottoms loop, discarding your opponent's entire hand. then rushing for game.

Very little people would bother trying X-Sabers now, not until EXP3 is out, when we have Fullhelmknight , Emmersblade and to a lesser extent , Gardestrike

Nobody but me ^^

That's all for today

Bye!

R3 : My Arcanite Tempest hand loved his all monster hand

Lack of posts for this week!

As title.

I'm very busy this week with all the tests and project presentations being bombarded to me faster than better Trishula'ed by Infernity.

No choice, so i don't be blogging much this week.

HOWEVER!

I promise a tag team tournament report on Saturday, and a deck post on Sunday!

Stay tune to it!

Thanks for understanding~

Bye!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Back to school...

School reopens again tomorrow, which means back to poly life for me.. @_@

Anyways, the 2 weeks of holidays were as if it wasn't holidays... more than 1 week was spent on the stupid GK summit event at school, plus projects = like school days liddat.. Regardless, there was still time for me to go down and play more often, including World Qualifers, which was damm sad.

Also, there is a Tag Team tournament on 10th July!! Long time no see!! Although i don't have meta decks such as BF and Infernity, which would be good to run in pairs, i'll still try to find a partner for it. Plus, i got alot of new stuff within these new days (wallet feels empty -_-''), which can let me build more decks =P

Finally, my project presentation for Social Enterprise is on Thursday. Hope i don't screw this one up like IT APP. Retarded teachers give retarded grades, thats all i can say.

So it's good bye to my cards on weekdays!

Combining

What happens when you combine an archetype which you like the most, with the most irritating archetype in your mind?

The result??

A whole new deck!!!

That's right, i'm trying to do that~

It's coming along fine, just need a few more pieces of the puzzle before i can finally play the deck in a tournament and publish it here.

Btw, it's not originated by me, so i'll give credits to the creator of the idea when i post the decklist.

That's all for tonight!

Monday, June 21, 2010

Random thought while doing project at friend's house!

Firstly, after some persuading from Chard-sama , I have decided to continue playing my dear Synchro Cat deck~ If Redempt can continue playing Lightlords and dominate with it, i don't see the reason why i can't.

Editted the entire decklist though, needed some changes to fight with BF/Infernity.

Then, looks like Ken's coming to SG next week! Really like how one blogger after another is coming to SG. First is Andrew, then Ken, who's next? Mike?

Finally, i need some Swap Frogs and Treeborn Frogs!!! Someone sell/trade/give me some please!!

That's all for this small little update~

Back to project work...

Sunday, June 20, 2010

Scrubby Day

Yeah, scrubbed at nationals today.

Sold some stuff, bought some stuff, that's about it. Watched Redempt play in Top 8 but he sadly lost. Jeric got 2nd, so grats to him!

My matchups were BF, Frog FTK, Colin Superspecial Synchron Delight, Frog Monarch and BF. Let's just say that the frogs screwed up my scores. Yeah, i hate Frogs now, sharing the same hatred as Blackie. Nvm, next time will have stuff to counter them le.

Yeah, boring report ftw!

Nothing to say lar, lose then lose loh, luck wasn't really with me today, as with every other day.

Putting my Synchro Cat into a nice deckbox and leaving it on the shelf for awhile, cause abit tired of playing it for so long. Time to change deck again!

Dunno what to form/reform.

See how bah, finish project then think about it.

Day before World Qualifer!

Yup, it's the night before the big day!

Preparing a lot of things to bring for tmr. My album , spare cards to sell , deck, sidedeck and extra deck, and a lot of stupid stuff such as calculator,paper, etcetcetcetcetecetc.

I think i might take a break from YGO after tmr. Gotta start working on those holiday projects which are not done =P

Meanwhile, i'm eager to get the new Elec support which will be coming in Star Strike Blast! Gotta love those cute Pikachu-like animals!

Also, i've been thinking of a good Gadget build to play with. Dun think i'll play the Machina build since Chimeratech Fortress will pop out after tomorrow.

Yup, that's all i can say now. All i can do now is to pray, pray, pray ,pray and hope that the Goddess of Luck will be with me tomorrow!

Sayonara! Gambatte!!!

*Goes to pray*

Countdown : 4 days more!

It's 4 more days to World Qualifiers, and everyone is up and training rigorously for it (i think?)

Anyways, i have been a bit slacking these few days from training due to stuff from school and class parties, so..hehehehehehe. *i think i better continue soon...*

Meanwhile, i finalized the decklist for my deck which i'm taking to Pomo this Sunday! Added some minor changes to the side deck and the main so that i can deal with the minority decks which would appear such as Lightlords, Froggy Monarch, Synchro Cat, etc etc.

Scrubbed at the Jurong East Trishula Tournament last Saturday, so there wasn't really anything to write about. But i guess i'll be joining the Trishula tournament this Friday, which would be in the World Qualifier's format, which means NO GETTING TRISHULA-ED 3 TIMES!!!!!

Yarh, exaggerating ftw!

Couldn't meet Andrew yesterday since it was my class party. I guess i'll meet him at locals this week or something.

That's all for now! I still have two 1500 words essays to plan out.

Bye!

Sunday, June 13, 2010

New Stuff!

Firstly, a crap banner!

Just cropped it out of some wallpaper and changed its stuff(brightness, etc)


Then, the new design!

Blogger rocks! Their new design template feature is awesome!

That's all fortoday!

Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG NATIONAL TOURNAMENT 2010 SINGAPORE FINALS

Take a look guys!

It's almost the same format as before, except that there is a elimination round at first, in order to cut the number down to 64. The elimination round score will also be determined by how fast you finish your match.

Sianz....my deck takes quite long to run one leh...


Anyways, i'll have to speed up my plays then. Fast thinking would be required for me.

Also, about the calculation for the swiss rounds. All i can say is...

Basically...

...

......

.........

Dun give a damm about it. Thinking about it will just make you more worried about some shit which you're not suppose to give a damm about. Instead, just focus on thrashing your opponent, smashing his face into the ground and claiming absolute victory....something along that line.

That's basically why i didn't really read through the calculation method, all i do is to win , win , win , win , win , win , win and.....oh yeah , WIN!

Also, its a cut from 64 to Top 8. So only 1/8 of the people would make it. So... yarh, i already emphasised on the "keep on winning or fuck off" part.

Yup... I can't imagine losing in the elimination round... @_@

Nah, that won't happen. I won't allow it to happen.


Ok! on a brighter and more non-serious tone, i have finally finished my deck for the Qualifers! Serves me right for submitting my decklist with cards which i don't even have yet =P

Aww well! ^^

BB!

Exams

Are OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


*Goes and grabs deck*


SO happy!


Now i finally have time to practice for World Qualifiers next week!

BB!

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Honest

Honestly,

Splashing Honest into Synchro Cat is awesome, as with a lot of other decks.

So many uses for it.

Use it with Ryko to beat over Stardust?

Set it to bait out Nobleman of Crossout instead of your Spy/Ryko/Tomato/whatever?

Food for Chaos Sorcerer?

Fuel Pot of Avarice?

Protect your Bicorn/Magical Android/Thunder Unicorn/Counterless Arcanite from being beatdown?

Yup, he rocks!

Friday, June 4, 2010

Playtesting!

Finally! Made time today to playtest random decks! Thanks to Wee Min and Lennon whom took time off to practice together!


=============================================================


Synchro Cat VS Infernity


If they have Trishula, then it would be a uphill battle for me. However, with no Trishula's, i would say that i'm standing on even footing with them, take wins and loses here and there.


Synchro Cat VS Blackwings


I'm starting to get the momentum on how to fight BF. Timings for disruption had to be critical. Overall, after play-testing here and there, i was leading by quite a abit. Boosted my confidence of BF matchups!

Synchro Cat VS Quickdraw Dandywarrior

Yup, that deck is still freaking irritating. Caius after Caius after Caius.... But still, i can handle that matchup. Side decked properly and was able to fight it with certain ease, although there are also some loses.

Synchro Cat VS Psycho Shocker Synchro

Luckily i won't be seeing this at World Qualifers. No Birdman love!

============================================================

In conclusion, today really helped a lot for me. Not only am i more confident of BF matchups now(just a little), i also got a brief view of the distribution of the decks which could appear at World Qualifers. Nice day i would say.

That's all for today!

BYEBYE!

Random things happening at home #2

Yeah, I think i'm going to go ahead with these posts until my exams has ended, since i can't go out in the meantime. Life sucks without my laptop and the earliest it will be repaired is this Thursday. Talk about being accurate, saying it will take "3-5 working days" when the earliest return date is 1 WEEK already.....

WTF right?

Anyways, some updates on what i've been doing in the meantime :

=======================================================

1) Worked out goals which my deck is suppose to achieve within each round of a match! This is kinda cool since i can alter the choices of stuff to put in in order to achieve the goal. Goal =/= get into Top 16/8 kind of goal.

Eg. Infernity focuses to win Game 1 with their gay loop ASAP, since Game 2 and 3 would be focused on attempting to do the loop WITH protection from disturbances.

It's coming along ok, although i haven't really tested it. Going to test it this Friday.

2) My project presentation is tmr! Wish me luck guys! Hope to get a A+!!!

3) Only 2 common tests and it's TERM BREAK! Some more both tests are MCQ!!!!!!!!

4) World Qualifiers is in 19 days! And i haven't even practiced one single tiny bit...

5) There isn't any 5, since i can't think of any right now. Wait......nope, no idea what to type here.

6) Yeah! Thought of something to type here! Want to try a new deck!!!


That's all!

BB (Hope to win a Trishula!)

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Random happenings while stuck at home!

Yeah, exams is in 2 weeks and i can't go out...even though its just a few papers.

I'm preparing for my project presentation on Wednesday, which is rather important to my grades.

Here's somethings which happened at home this week :


1) Couldn't go to locals at all..But might sneak out to one next week.

2) Playtested World Qualifier deck, which proves to be good.

3) Revised Econs and Business Management.

4) Randomly formed a deck consisting of Machina and Synchro Cat =P

5) No.4 actually kinda worked, but i didn't like it. Using Fortress + Keymouse was random.


Yarp. That's really summed up my week.

And no laptop is soooooooo boring...

Anyways, really looking forward to World Qualifiers, hope my deck can make it.

Byebye!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Finalized

Yes!

Finally submitted my decklist for World Qualifers

Saturday, May 22, 2010

Indecisive

Cannot come to a conclusion on what to run for World Qualifiers.


Machina?

Synchro Cat?

BF?

GB?

Gadgets?

Sianz....

Dunno what to play.

5D's Episode 110

What crap is it?

"By the power of the Crimson Dragon, i can stack my deck and magically have 5 Tuners stacked together and be seen for Shooting Star Dragon's effect! Go! Stardust Mirage!"

Crappy main character stacking in progress.

Then again, this is how he wins every single duel, so i shouldn't be so worked up.

In other news, Placido got ripped out from his D-Wheel. Cool.

And Jose finally gets his Machine Emperor.

This is starting to get good.

No promos

Like Clarence, participating in tournies with his BF deck without promo, i'm going to try that too!

No choice, since World Qualifiers are 1 month away.

Although i'm going to take it slowly, since its a little hard to suddenly take out all the promos in my deck and play.

Right now, i'm going to only play 1 Promo , which will be Gorz.

I'll decide on what to replace it with later.

In other news, now we have to submit our decklist and register for the World Qualifiers online! Pretty cool , and its about time they did this since its WAY more efficient this way.

Lotsa lotsa Tournies!

The format for World Qualifiers has changed back to Swiss, which is a relief.

There's a Trishula Starlight tourney @ Jurong East this week, and i'm SO going for it. Its about time i owned a Trishula, if i can get it....

There's also a Trishula tournament in the start of June.

AND , theres the Duel Kingdom tournament spreaded over May, June and July , which also has a Secret Trishula as the grand prize.

All in all , its going to be great for the month of May and June.

Must take this opportunity to play as much as possible , before the school term starts again in July

Emo?

As topic

Royal Rumble?

WTF?

New Stuff + New Info

Phew..finally got those Big Tornado of the Wasteland which i needed.

Felt inferior using Dust Tornado when everyone is using that super special awesome new card.

Also went to get some other stuff for my Synchro Cat today!

I must say, the testing is totally awesome.

Finally, went to check the official YGO website and realized that the World Qualifiers in Singapore would be on 20th June, which is a little more than a month from now.

Minus my tests/projects/assignments...I guess i don't have much time to practice.

Damm it.

I'll try to find time to practice during my holiday then.

Bye!

Double Post! Tourney Report (8/5)

Yeah. My Internet access is back at home.

One word : AWESOME.

Anyways, let's get down to business.

========================================================

Deck used : Synchro Cat

Match 1 : VS Zhi (Cyber Powerbond)
OO

R1 : He summoned Cyber Twin and failed to OTK me. He took damage from Power Bond and i won next turn.
R2 : Controlled with Arcanite.

1-0

Match 2 : VS Timothy (Machina Gadgets)
XOX

R1 : Too many Gadgets on field. he destroyed my Arcanite and rushed ftw.
R2 : He had a bad hand.
R3 : He THOUGHT he had a bad hand filled with Gadgets, while i had a hand with no monsters.

1-1

Match 3 : VS iwillnevercuthisdeckeveragain Neuxcharge (BF)

So...this is abit complicated to write about. Basically if he won , which he did, he still had to fight in order to get a placing in Top 4. So i volunteered to help by asking him to let me win, which automatically gave me a place in Top 4. Then , whatever prize i got i will pass it to him , in return for a free drink...

So...Top 4! Weeeeee...

Top 4 : VS Faz (Hopeless Dragon)
OXO

R1 : He got a bad hand, and just scooped.
R2 : Synchro for alot of good stuff and ram me to death.
R3 : Arcanite + Stardust + Airbellum ftw.

Finals : VS Wei Xiang
XOO
R1 : Forgot how i lost. Oh yeah, tio ram by some monsters.
R2 : Forgot how i won.
R3 : Voltic Bicorn + Honest FTW.

So i got 1st! And Neux got another Decisive Arms!

But he was extremely kind enough to give me back my entry fee!

Thanks a lot Neux! I'll never cut your deck for as long as i live!

BB!

Lack of Posts

Sorry that there has been a terrible lack of posts.

Mainly its because i have no Internet access at home for the past week.

Don't ask me why.

Anyways, i went down to a tournament @ Jurong East yesterday with Synchro Cat again.

I got 2nd after playing for a long time.

That's about it.

I'm typing this out at Jurong East library and i'm heading for another tournament there in.... 10 minutes? Right after i submit my homework online.

Bye!

Super Short Tourney Report (1st May)

Still *cough* sick.

=============================================

Deck used : Synchro Cat
Format : Swiss of 3 Rounds to decide Top 4.


Match 1 : VS Bryan (Burn)
XOO

R1 : Forgot how i died. Remember getting shot by 2 Wave Motion Cannons.
R2 : Sided in Trap Stuns and summoned BLACK FEATHER DRAGON to block damage for awhile. Cold Waved and summoned Brionac + another crap synchro , bounced all his monsters and rushed in for the win.
R3 : Summoned Black Feather Dragon again! Woot!

1-0

Match 2 : VS Yong Xiang (Synchro Beat)
OXO

R1 : Cold Waved and rushed ftw with Sorc + Airbellum + Raiou
R2 : Bad hand of 2 Pot of Avarice and no monsters. Stalled awhile with Spy + Descendant , but still died.
R3 : Descendant abuse!!

2-0

Match 3 : VS Neuxcharge (ihaterobocentaurballs) (BF)
XX

R1 : He believed in Nexus , giving him Whirlwind and giving me crap.
R2 : BELIEVE IN NEXUS!!!!!

2-1 (Top 4!!)

So we didn't play for Top 4. After discussion , i let Neux up to get the Decisive Arms while he split it with me.

============================================================

Wee!! Earned abit today!

I love my kitty!

Hope to win another prize this month! maybe the TRISHULA next week???

Try lar....

kktybye!

Out of bed

Sorry for not posting for awhile (4 days)

I fell ill on Wednesday and was in bed all the way until 3o minutes ago when i finally was able to get up.

39 degree fever + running nose really does a lot to your body.

Anyways, i don't think there will be a tourney report this week since i'm not going out with this body of mine.

Maybe next week.

Bye!

News update 26/4

Grats to Jeff Jones on topping with Quickdraw Dandywarrior

But i would be happier if Ryan Spicer or Billy Brake won with Caliber Cat.

Yeah...biased opinions. But i played with the Quickdraw Dandywarrior deck last Sat, and i must say that its really strong.

====================================================

In other news, Economics lessons are freaking confusing, while Business Management is acceptable for me, just that i need to do some revision on my own.

Poly life rocks. Great friends + Great teachers = Great learning!

But , even though BZSE T01 is the best class i have ever had, i still feel that i'm still not really a part of the class yet. Maybe its because of what happened during Secondary school, so i'm still kinda affect by it.

REGARDLESS, i'll try to have fun with my class!

===================================================

Finally, Testing update!

I love Synchro Cat now!!! Absolutely 100% love it now, even IF it loses.

Maining Tragoedia is also a good choice which i took up.

While i don't main 2 Doomcalibur Knight, i main 2 Raiou, as its kinda a trend happening in Japan.

I'm considering running 1 My Body as a Shield, but i have yet to find space.

And the best thing i LOVE about Synchro Cat , especially mine is........


...

......

.........


............


................


I can summon all 3 Unicorns in 1 Duel!

Lovin it!

Bicorn mill 7 cards = Food for Pot + DAD&ChaosSorcerer combo!

That's all for today!

Cya!

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Synchro Cat

Head on over to Shriek.

You can see that there are 3-4 Synchro Cat decks which topped.

I think its a good choice for using 2-3 Raious.

It counters BF and Infernity, while providing a LIGHT beatstick, which becomes food for Chaos Sorcerer (for some builds)

Also, i see some Snowman-Eaters, which is hard to get over with its 1900 DEF. Its effect also almost always provides a +1 unless your opponent can get over it , which would be an instant trade off.

It's nice to see that these are topping, even over on the TCG side.

And yeah, i'm testing out Synchro Cat too!

That's all , Bye!

Update

Guess i won't be using the Elec deck this week.


Mainly because i still need 2 more cards.


1 Scrap-Iron Scarecrow and 1 Pot of Avarice.


Will post a tournament report tmr when i most probably go to Khatib.


I know AMK has a Trishula tournament, but you can't trade there...and..i just don't think i stand a big chance of winning it with everyone going there.

Plus, only Trishula and Decisive Arms is good..the rest...meh

Bye!

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Elec deck COMPLETE!!!

Yes!

Elec deck is now officially complete!

================================================
Random facts about this deck!


Cute animals direct attacking is not funny!

Machina Fortress is useless against this deck!

Infernity will practically kill this deck no problem!

Dunno about BF though.

Goldfish discarding is fun!

Holy Wyvern OTK!

Pheasant + Goldfish = NUUU for your opponent!

Light Mirror can kill this deck! But of course there's something called Side Deck!

============================================


That's all the info i'm giving.


Testing this deck further..hoping to make it in time to bring it for a tourney on Saturday.


That's all for today folks!


Bye!


P.S : I want my Bicorn to complete my Unicorn set!!!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

DREV wishlist!

Yeah, i think i'm going to do this for every new booster set.


=======================================================
2 Elecgoldfish *Gotten!*
1 Elecchimera *Gotten!*
3 Elecpheasant *Gotten*
1 Unicorn Set ( 1 Thunder Unicorn , 1 UR Voltic Bicorn , 1 UR Lightning Tricorn) *left Bicorn*
3 Chain Whirlwind *Borrowed 2 from Wee Min to test*
1 Surging Dragon Knight Dragoequites (Any Rarity)
3 Summon Curse
2 Pot of Greederosity
3 Divine Warning *Got 1*
3 Double Cyclone *Got 1*
==========================================================

Most likely won't be buying 1 box since my major wants are commons and the foils are either just for collective purposes (means i can do without them) , or for my own use.

Bye!

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Random set of cards!


1) Double Cyclone + Wasteland Tornado + Claymore Dud



Just realized that this set of combo is easily splashable in any decks.


2) Malevolent Catastrophe + Royal Oppression


Starlight Road means nothing now!


3) D.D. Warrior Lady


BF hatred!


That's all for today!

Short Tournament Report @ Khatib (10th April)

Deck used : GB


==================================================================

Match 1 : VS Kenneth (MGS)
OXO

R1 : Raiou + GB + Chariot controlled the game.
R2 : Stupid Light Mirror and DFissure come at wrong time. Died to....forget liao.
R3 : Controlled with Light Mirror and Chariot. Gorz = Bye bye , Any MGS = Bye bye

1-0 *YES!!! Got my revenge...although he still made it to Top 16 in the end*


Match 2 : VS Samuel aka Silent Killer (GB)
XX

R1 : Dunno what i doing. He had more traps than me...So he outresourced me.
R2 : Monster hand. scrubbed.


Match 3 : VS Jun (Machina Gadgets)
XOX

R1 : Too many Gadgets + Removal + No Chariot = GG
R2 : Controlled with Raiou
R3 : Fortress + Gadget + Limiter Removal = GG

Rank : SCRUBBED.

Ok lar...at least i got my revenge.

Thinking of stop playing GB for awhile, cause i'm abit tired of playing the same deck for 2 months.

Might go down to the tournament @ Sunset Way tomorrow if i succeed in preventing myself from being forced to go to Grandma's house.

Bye!

Sugary Treats and Yu-Gi-Oh!

Mum came back from her trip to Taiwan.

She brought back A LOT OF gum/sweets/stuffwhichmakesyourbrainwork.

So much that i'm deciding to bring some tomorrow to locals either at Khatib or Jurong East to share with my friends.

Sugar keeps your brain working, and i think that it also applies to Yugimonz too.

They should distribute some sweets to players in between every few rounds at the World/Asia Qualifiers. Because seriously, the amount of stress there is VERY HIGH.

That's all for today

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Change of mindset

I know.

There is still quite some time before World Qualifiers.

But its a sorta good timing to start changing your mindset bit by bit in preparation.

Heard that the World Qualifiers would start for Malaysia on the 2nd of May.

If that month would be ours too, then we have around 1 month to prepare only!


Stuff that will happen :

1) If you get a Heavy Storm, you will NOT hesitate to use it, unless it makes you lose advantage.

2) No reliance on promos like Raiou/Gorz. BF just became abit harder to beat.

3) Malevolent Catastrophe would be widely used (As mentioned on previous post)

4) Trap Stun would be widely used too to prevent Icarus Attack and Malevolent Catastrophe.

5) Infernity decks will have no Trishula, but they can still summon alot of Synchros to beat.


Finally........


...


......


..........


NO STARLIGHT ROAD!!!!!!


WOOTWOOT~!


But, there's still a lot of time left. Perhaps its just me being overly excited.

Anyways, i myself have no idea what to run on that day itself.

Since a lot of things would have changed by then, like the release of The Duelist Revolution.

Wouldn't be surprised if i had to play a Tele-DAD deck teched with Ultimate Psychicker and Miracle Synchro Fusion in Round 1 or something.

Or i'll have to fight a randomly gay new FTK made by Baha.

Ok, thats all for today.

Bye!

Monday, April 5, 2010

Malevolent Catastrophe

Still a extremely gay card.


Although there is something called "Starlight Road" now.


Good news is, we will 100% see more of this card at the World Qualifiers.


Yup, doing its job of wrecking BF in its face.


And for the progress update, i'm currently thinking of a good build of GB to bring to the World Qualifiers.


Stay tuned.


Bye!

Tourney Report (4/4/10)

Sorry for not updating for the past week.

Parents aren't at home, so i had to do chores, laundry , etc.

Now, onto the report. no details of the matches will be given cause i'm extremely tired and i can't remember what happened.

==============================================================

Deck used : GB

Reached Khatib CC at 1PM. Collected my Duelist ID and watched Gabriel play against Jess. Others arrived and i volunteered to be the guinea pig for Kenneth to playtest his new MGS deck against.

Finished that and went for lunch. Came back, and Darren + Aaron + Jeric + others arrived. Tournament started at 3PM

Match 1 : VS Jeff (BF)
XOX

(0 Points)


Match 2 : VS ??? (Synchron Deck)
OXO

(1 point)


Match 3 : VS Jeric (BF)
OO

(3 points) *Actually suppose to be 2-1, but he couldn't go up anyways. So he helped me a little.*


Match 4 : VS Clarence (BF)
OO

(5 points) === Proceed to Top 8


Top 8 Match : VS Yi Jie (GB)
XOX

So....all the good prizes were out of my reach now. Went to the scrubber's table to participate in the...


"Try not to get the Backup Warrior"
Tournament!


Played against Akira and won him 2-0 , which automatically made me get 5th place and i decided to take the One Hundred Eye Dragon.

Aaron got 4th and took the Sin Red Eyes.

Ate dinner together and then went home.

=============================================================


Overall, it was a great day. Because.....

1) I won something
2) Heard a lot of playing GB by watching Gabriel play his Oppression GB and fighting Yi Jie.
3) Sidedeck choices were good too.


Yup. And i've gotten new motivation to play Oppression GB again!

That's all for today

Bye!

P.S : To Neuxcharge ==== Protector of the Sanctuary says hi!

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Rauzes is back!!!

Yup , its true.


And what better way to return to the Yu-Gi-Oh! blogging scene by posting a brand new original broken deck!

That's Rauzes for you!

I'm just glad that he's back.

Claymore Dud love!
