BF Mirror Matches

In BF Mirrors, everyone loves to use 3 Siroccos

And tech in their Spirit Reaper.

Yet nobody thinks to bring in a N. Black Panther to counter these choices.

Summon Panther! Copy Sirocco! Activate effect! Pump "BF - Sirocco of the Dawn" to 3000 ATK!
Attack! Get hit by Dimension Prison!
Chain! Activate Eradicator Epidemic Virus!

Summon Panther!
Copy Spirit Reaper!
Spirit Reaper is destroyed by its effect!
Attack direct!
Discard 1!

Thats all for today.

Light Imprisoning Mirror

I've noticed that significantly less people are playing Lightlords, despite them still going strong.

Does that mean that Light Imprisoning Mirror is no longer worth siding?

Thats all for today.

Enemy Controller in X Sabers

Since X Sabers can generate a lot of field advantage anyhows, why not use Enemy Controller to help set up synchros?

Thats all for today.

Pole Position

Using Magic Planter with an already activated Pole Position allows you to get rid of Perfect Declarer.

First off, sorry for lack of post over the weeekend.
APPARENTLY, to Soliel, "you have 16-19 Sept" means "Disappear off the face of the planet for those days".

On the subject of APPLES! The new ipod nano is really fun.

So anyhows, today I'd like to share a working decklist for Metabeat, that is working out quite nicely.

Simple and straightforwards: The Simple Metabeat.

3 Breaker the Magical Warrior/魔道戦士ブレイカー
3 Different Dimension Warrior Lady/異次元の女戦士
3 Cyber Dragon/サイバー・ドラゴン
3 Thunder King Raiou/ライオウ
2 Banisher of the Radiance/閃光の追放者
1 Neo Spacian Grand Mole/N グラン・モール
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness/冥府の使者ゴーズ
1 Blackwing - Gale the Hurricane/BF-疾風のゲイル
2 Honest/オネスト

2 Fissure/地割れ
2 Book of Moon/月の書
1 Dark Hole/ブラック・ホール
1 Monster Reborn/死者蘇生

2 Solemn Warning/神の警告
2 Dimension Prison/次元幽閉
2 Dark Bribe/魔宮の賄賂
2 Comulsary Evacuation Device/強制脱出装置
1 Royal Opression/王宮の弾圧
1 Call of the Haunted/リビングデッドの呼び声
1 Solemn Judgement/神の宣告
1 Torrential Tribute/激流葬
1 Starlight Road/スターライト・ロード
1 Mirror Force/聖なるバリアーミラーフォースー

The main reason I chose Dark Bribe over Tools of the Bandit is that the deck already has a heavy life price tag: Solemn Warnings, Opression, and Judgement are already pushing it.

Although it seems that the deck doesnt do well against Decree running decks, Breaker can settle most of those problems.

Thats all for today.

Double Dragunity

A rather interesting take on Dragunity, it utilizes Double Cyclones and quick play abuse to gain advantage Aclys and chain building to net LOTS of advantage.

Unfortunately it still lacks that "OMG 9000 Damage out of nowhere" factor.

Thats all for today.


September 15, 2010


For those who are illiterate enough to still not understand:

You take damage. Lets say said damage is 2000.

You activate card. Opponent doesnt Solemn Warning it.

You recover 2000LP.

Special summon token.

End result: NO extra life gained.

Thats all for today.

Inferno Monarch

What up everyone

So: Infernity Break.

All 1:1 Cards have restrictions as to where on the field they can hit. Cyclone can only hit the backrow, and Smashing Ground/Fissure cant exactly target what you want some times.

But Infernity Break: WOW.

Most cards that say "Destroy 1 Card on the Field" usually come with some kind of restriction. Its NOT supposed to be free. Raigeki Break requires a discard, and Kuraz gives draws.

The most Infernity Break gives is: Set your entire hand in your backrow(like you wont be doing this anyways), and remove from play the last Infernity Break you used.

But most decks cant function so well with this, because you need SOME infernity cards to run the engine at all.

Note that I said CARD, not MONSTERs.

So what decks can really make punishing pushes with very few cards? Given that they have the correct setup?

Infernities, and Monarchs.

So heres a new concept: Inferno Monarch

Not related in any way to Volcanic, Tectonic, Inflammatory, or otherwise fire-related name'd Monarch decks.

Inferno Monarchy

Monsters: 19
3 Caius the Shadow Monarch
2 Raiza the Storm Monarch
2 Testaros the Firestorm Monarch
1 Dirge the Dark Monarch
2 Vanity Fiend
2 Treeborn Frog
2 Dandylion
2 Gravekeeper's Spy
1 Sangan
2 Infernity Avenger

2 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Monster Reborn
2 Creature Swap
2 Gold Sarcophagus
1 Foolish Burial
3 Book Of Moon

2 Infernity Inferno
3 Infernity Break
1 Raigeki Break
2 Dust Tornado
2 Bottomless Trap Hole


Of course not. Most people will activate Infernity Inferno to dump both Avengers... Then the 2nd one becomes a dead draw.


The purpose of Inferno, or at least the main one, is to dump the OTHER Inferno. Infernity Inferno serves as a very powerful deck thinning card, allowing you to clear out your deck of several cards, so you can draw into some Monarchs, or even more removal.
Infernity Break needs an Infernity card in the graveyard to be removed. Infernity Inferno is this card.

That being said, 2 Avengers were included because they make great tribute fodder. Like really good tribute fodder.

Another thing: The lack of Mirror Force/Dark Hole/Torrential Tribute.

So you're telling me that with... I dunno, 75%ish of the deck devoted to direct point removal, you need mass removal, and open yourself to Starlight Roads?

I didnt think so.

Gold Sarcophagus: Helps with that pesky 0 Hand that Infernity Break needs.

So the concept is there: Deck thin with several cards, use Infernity Break, along with a bunch of other removal cards to control the field, and then press for the win gradually with Monarchs and Vanity Fiend.

Class dismissed. Any questions?

Clear Vice Dragon

Seems interesting in Hopeless Dragon, right?

I mean, level 8 + Dark + Dragon.

Once it dies you can always bring it back, as it doesnt have any summoning requirements.

Also with its 0DEF, it makes some interesting advantage gaining with Nightmare Recurring.

Quickdraw Dandy, Perfect Declarer

B Class:

Wizel Infinity Splashing

It makes an interesting addition to beatdown type decks.

Although it cant help you if you get hit by starlight road(missed timing), it does help clean up the Stardust Dragon problem.

Thats all for today.

Lost Star Descent

Seems good with Treeborn Frog + Formula Synchron, no?

Thats all for today.
