Returning to game after 6 year hiatus

Post  JHatter on 2012-02-07, 16:42

So, I decided to TRY and get back into the game after not doing anything with it for so long. While I continue to learn all the new strategies and staples.. I am playing a deck I played right before I stopped. I did go through some of the new cards and added them to the deck, but, I would like any help in making it better so I can stand some chance while learning my way back to being competitive.

End of The World
3 Demise, King of Armageddon
2 Ruin, Queen of Oblivion
3 Manju of Ten Thousand Hands
1 Morphing Jar
1 Treeborn Frog
1 Sangan
3 Doom Dozer
3 Chainsaw Insect
3 Armored Bee
3 Skull-Mark Ladybug
23...

3 End of The World
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Heavy Storm
3 Pot of Duality
1 Pot of Avarice
3 Cup of Ace
2 Megamorph
14...

1 Mirror Force
2 Magic Cylinder
3...


Sideboard:
I have no idea

Sooo... Basic ritual deck? Add some Xyz 4s to extra... Mainly utopia and emeral are good... Lavalval chain as well...

I would take out 1 megamorph for a dark hole... Maybe add starlight road and stardust... Or bls envoy and chaos sorcerer...

For a Ritual deck, use the Dijinns. Try this:

Spoiler:

19
1 Dark Armed Dragon
3 Demise
1 Ruin
3 Dijinn Presider of Rituals
3 Dijinn Releaser of Rituals
1 Sangan
3 Tour Guide from the Underworld
3 Manju

14
3 End of the World
1 Contract with the Abyss
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Allure of Darkness
1 Foolish Burial

7
2 Solemn Warning
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Trap Dustshoot

2 Leviair the Sea Dragon
2 Number 17: Leviathan Dragon
1 Daigusto Emeral
1 Gem-Knight Pearl
1 Kachi Kochi Dragon
1 Lavalval Chain
1 Number 39: Utopia
1 Steelswarm Roach
1 Wind-Up Zenmaister

If you want to play this Real-Life, the only truly expensive cards would be Tour Guide and the Extra Deck cards. Tour Guide especially. 1 copy of Tour Guide was going around $160-$170 last I checked. But it's great at bringing out Rank 3 Xyzs with itself and Sangan. If you can spare the big bucks, go ahead and buy 3. If not, try this deck onling and see how well it works.

Another way you can go is Normal Monsters with Advanced Ritual Art. With Rescue Rabbit out, Normal Monsters are far more playable now. Here's a sample Rabbit build with Rituals:

Spoiler:

20
3 Demise
1 Ruin
3 Sabersaurus
3 Kabazauls
3 Resuce Rabbit
3 Two-Headed King Rex
3 Manju
1 Sangan

14
3 End of the World
1 Advanced Ritual Art
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Monster Reborn
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Pot of Avarice
3 Upstart Goblin

6
2 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Trap Dustshoot
1 Dimensional Prison

15
3 Evolzar Dolkka
3 Evolzar Laggia
2 Daigusto Emeral
1 Gem-Knight Pearl
1 Kachi Kochi Dragon
2 Lavalval Chain
1 Number 39: Utopia
1 Steelswarm Roach
1 Wind-Up Zenmaister

Again, Rescue Rabbit and the Extra Deck cards should be the only expensive cards. Not sure what Rabbit is going for, though. Again, feel free to use it online if you can't spend the big bucks.

If you want to stick with your own deck:

-3 Cup of Ace
+3 Trade-In
-2 Megamorph
+1 Dark Hole
+1 Monster Reborn

Trade-In doesn't involve chance, and Dark Hole and Monster Reborn are must-runs.

As far as staples go, the following are considered staples these days:

2-3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Heavy Storm

2 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Trap Dustshoot
1 Torrential Tribute
