Obelisk Blue Homework

Post by Ciphermask on Mon Jan 30, 2017 9:30 pm

Hello, this is Professor Cipher calling forth all members of the Obelisk Blue dorm. You may be in the upper echelon of the academy, but that is no excuse to shirk your studies. This is a duel academy after all, and what is a big part of dueling? That's right, effective deck building. While the meta game may be well-defined with few gaps, a true duelist of Obelisk level should always be able to turn any sort of theme given to them into a winning strategy. To make sure your skills remain in tip top shape, I've devised this homework lesson to draw upon those deck building skills that some of you may be neglecting. A side deck is encouraged for the deck as well, so please take that into consideration.

Your assignment will be this: You are to create a deck incorporating either Fish and/or Sea Serpent monsters into your primary strategy. This shouldn't be terribly hard for upstanding duelists and students such as yourselves, so I have no doubt that you can create something both fun and effective out of these underused types.

Grading Criteria Basics:
1. Does the deck stand up on its own as a fully functioning deck that can perform decently against decks of at least rogue status (ie. Cyber Dragons, Shiranui, Barrier Beat)?
2. Does the deck incorporate the given theme fully and not just as a small part of the deck (as in the doesn't deck only splash in a few of the required theme's cards and fills in the rest with staples and meta engines)? Keep in mind that the deck can make use of a few outside power cards if they seek to further the base strategy of the theme.
3. Did you take the time to look for and add in any tech options that may create interesting synergies with your theme without harming it?
4. The deck shouldn't be copy and pasted from someone else's deck profile. The goal is to show deck building skills, not your ability to read a list.

I wouldn't just give out a homework with no reward, of course. Now I realize that DP isn't of as much use to such high ranking members such as yourselves, so instead, I offer you an alternative. As Obelisk Blue dorm members, your goal is to obtain Pro Points or PP and eventually take on the Pro Challenge. You can earn a maximum of 10 PP from this assignment, which is equivalent to beating one of your fellow Obelisk Blues in a 1v1 duel. Upon finishing your deck, you can post a screenshot of it in this thread where it will be graded by me. You will be awarded an amount of PP in accordance to how it compares to the grading criteria. You may only complete this assignment once. Other members are free to offer tips and advice that could help make any decks turned in better.


I look forward to seeing what the shining stars of GXDA will come up with for this assignment.

It seems to be a bit of a froggy take on the tried and true MerLantean deck that has seen scattered tops across the board in the past. You've basically taken the strength of the old deck that allowed it to pull OTKs out of nowhere and added in the newer Toadally Awesome to give it more stun power in the event that you don't end up winning in one turn. From the looks of it, it has powerful combos like your typical MerLantean deck with a few additional options. I won't say it's the most origina; thing, but I expected to see at least one of these when I announced the theme for this assignment. The addition of Toadally Awesome and a few Frogs give it a different twist and it's sure to be an effective deck all the same. Sad to see no side deck as though.

I will award you 75 points for your deck. It's a strong submission, but don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and try some more cards from the theme of this assignment.

I don't think you know me well enough. I only play Madolches really. I just put this together in like 2 minutes, playtested it, and was pretty happy.

I was also debating on making toadallyawesome.dek which would just be a ton of water monsters to make bahamut shark to make toadally awesome. This wouldn't be as strong as what I presented though.

Oh boy, more Toad. The point of the assignment is to try things that often get overlooked, and Merlanteans and Toad are hardly that. That being said, I can see that this is something different than your usual.
