Lesson One: Preparation

Post by Guest on Sat Jul 09, 2016 6:45 am

For most tournaments (not all but as a general rule) a duelist will have to duel with match games. That means the best of 3 games. You are allowed to swap in cards from your side deck to your main deck in between these games. This leads us to the topic of today's lesson: PREPARATION.

Preparation can mean a bunch of different things. From what spells and traps you run in your main deck to what you place in your side, all of these are important. The main deck should run spells and traps according to it's archetype. For example, if you are running a stun deck, run stun traps like Lose 1 Turn or Skill Drain, as well as the common Solemn cards. If you are running a deck that is combo-reliant, you may need some draw cards such as Upstart Goblin or Allure of Darkness depending on if you have a dark deck ofc. That itself is a part of preparation. To make sure your main deck is formulated to make your deck run as smoothly and consistently as possible.

Another, and final part for today, part of preparation is the side deck. The side deck is the key turning point in most close matches, especially meta. Now meta can change based off of where you are and what the people who live near you are using in their duels, but in general meta follows the tier 1 decks (look them up it is pretty easy to find) especially online. This makes it easy to stack your side deck with cards that can counter those meta decks. Or if you run a meta deck you can stack your side with cards that will help support your deck (i.e. facing off against a heavy stun deck and you have 3 Twin Twisters in your side). The cards that lock down meta are pretty well known if you ask around, as this post will not always be relevant. However with the current meta there are some pretty good cards that can lock down the current tier 1 decks. These include Anti-Spell Fragrance to shut down pendulum decks, as pendulum zones are spells and cannot be set on the pendulum scales; causing them to not be able to be activated. Other cards to be included are Imperial Iron Wall to make it so banishment reliant decks (like Kozmo) can't activate any of their effects. And finally another great two cards would be Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror and Mask of Restrict to lock down dark decks and monarch decks respectively.

That's is all for today. If you guys have any questions about mechanics or specific inquiries towards how to prepare better feel free to post below and/or message me.

And overall cards that can hurt many if not all decks?

Skill Drain destroys many archetyps that are nonmeta. These are just floodgate examples though. There can be other cards that specifically counter most decks like the trend of today's decks are grave decks. Necrovalley is a great card to run just to lock those grave decks down. It all depends on what kind of deck you are expecting to face.

Zane enters Sart's class and sits down at the nearest desk, watching Sart carefully as he explains ruling and gives his lesson. As Zane observes Sart he cringes slightly

Sartyr hears the comment and thinks to himself, "Well if a certain someone wanted a more in depth lesson perhaps they should have provided an example."

Is it because there aren't many people on? Wasn't this place active? Man you leave for three days and everyone changes.

Nee, Teacher, if you allow me to, i'd like to add to the Full house card to this class, the other day i saw one and destroy both pendulum and 3 Spell/Traps that card in the Side deck could be Quite Useful
