Simple Strategies – WATER Decks

December 19th, 2012

WATER Decks are back in a big way thanks to Mermail and Atlantean monsters, which have taken Duelists to the top tables of YCS events in recent weeks. While that Deck is quite elaborate and has many different combos, it’s not the only way to use WATER-based cards. Here’s an outline of a basic WATER strategy, some of the cards you can use, and the kinds of plays you can make.

October 25th, 2012

Fact: You get some pretty good effects when you send the Atlantean monsters from the Realm of the Sea Emperor Structure Deck to the Graveyard to activate a WATER monster’s effect. Fact: It would be really cool if there were more cool WATER monsters with a greater variety of effects to pay for using your Atlanteans. Fact: The Mermail monsters from Abyss Rising are really good and many of their effects let you trigger the tactical abilities of your Atlanteans!

You can build a really great Deck by combining cards you got from the Realm of the Sea Emperor Structure Deck with the mermen, mermaids, and mermonsters of Abyss Rising. Here’s a look at how they work together. Read more…

Top Picks to Trigger Atlantean Tactical Abilities!

October 19th, 2012

The Realm of the Sea Emperor Structure Deck’s new Atlantean monsters have added a whole new world of options to WATER strategies.

Marksman will destroy any Set card your opponent controls, while Heavy Infantry will destroy a face-up card. By using the Atlanteans, your WATER monsters are getting twice the power for their effects! Here are some good choices to combo with them. Read more…

Classic Decks: Daedalus!

October 17th, 2012

A “field wipe”, the destruction of everything on the field, is one of the most devastating things that can happen in a Duel. With cards like Black Rose Dragon or Judgment Dragon, many Duelists today have access to a way to instantly clear the entire field. Imagine, if you will, a time there was only one card capable of resetting a field: Final Destiny. Shortly after, there was Huge Revolution. Neither card was exactly easy to play, so Duelists continued to play as many cards as they wished to the field without fear that it could all vanish due to one card. Then, Invasion of Chaos happened.

Invasion of Chaos is famous for a great many things, but there’s one card that stands out. It’s a card legendary for its ease of Summoning, its massive ATK, and its ability to wipe out your opponent’s cards. Yes, we’re talking about Levia-Dragon – Daedalus! (Honorable mention goes to Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End)
