X-saber deck update

Few things for the X-saber Deck

Ragigura is meh to be honest. Alot of times it doesnt seem like I need somethnig back from grave to hand.

Added Bottomless and Torrential For more defense.

Monk is good and so is sangan, Cat is just broke in this deck and they let you search it out.  

Gold sarcs are working fine so far, similar to monk and sangan but also get cold wave and other targets. I will keep updated..

X-saber Deck

I will be entering a gold series tourney this Wednesday with the following:

3 xx-saber Darksoul

2 xx-saber fulhelmknight

2 xx-saber emmersblade

2 x-saber airbellum

2 D.D. Crow

1 x-saber Ragigura

3 x-saber Faultroll

1 Morphing Jar

2 x-saber Boggart Knight

1 Rescue Cat

1 x-saber pashuul

1 Heavy Storm

1 Mystical Space Typoon

2 Gold Sarcophogus

1 Cold Wave

1 Giant Turnade

1 My Body As A shield

1 Brain Control

1 Mind Control

2 Book Of Moon

1 Starlight Road

1 Royal Opression

2 Gottoms Emergency Call

2 Dust Tornado

1 Solemn Judgment

1 Trap Stun

Side Deck: Idk at the moment it will probaly be geared towards Frogs,Perfect Herald, GB's and Infernity.

Monsters: Nothing unusual really in x-saber line up. Pashuul has gained alot of polularity and certainly will gain more as naturia beast comes out. Opression and this tihng sitting there sets up for a nice lock.

Spells: Gold Sarc at first I was iffy about, but seeing as how so many decks that topped yugioh Championship Chicago ran it; I thought I would give it a try. Sets up nicely for cat plays with cold wave which many times can be instant win.

Traps: Opression was something that sounded weird at first, but lets make some observations:

1: Most x-sabers are fairly strong and can hold on their own.

2: Swarming the field, disrupting the hand and then oppressing any attempt to come back is a very effective strategy.

3: many ways to get around oppression when you need too..like trap stun, cold wave, giant turnade, ect..

4: XX-saber Emmersblade and Fulhelmknight activate in the damage step so it is oppression free.

Now for other tihngs:

No saber Hole???? Well as I mentioned before saber hole is actually kinda limited in what it can negate. Myabe side deck worthy or one in main deck seems best. Divine Warning coming out in Duelist Revolution seems to be a better pick in negating summons.

Yugioh card: Saber Hole??

It seems to not be as poplular at it used to be. I hear people talk about running 2,1 or even 0 copies.There may be a few reason for this and I can explain why.

1) Speed- One thing that stood out to me about the 3rd place deck last championship was how it took out defense for speed. Considering we are in a very fast format this is an appluadable choice to do since game can easily be done witihng your first turns. Makes less chances for you opponent to get their outs to you since you are beating them pretty fast.

2) Saber Hole can't negate everything. From what I understand it isn't like opression where it can stop summon like return from or different dimension and so on. The card is more like a bottomless with a horn of heaven/solemn judgment feel to it.

Synchron Explorer and Yugioh Championship Chicago

Is awesome, sets up for quick synchros. Junk Destroyer was a bit to hyped, it is good but not something that can come out constantly in quickdraw like duelers seemed to think.

I might try a deck based on Junk Destroyer I saw on you tube. From what I remember is that it used a mini-LS engine and synchron explorer. I'll keep updated if anything. I'll post my Rescue Cat Synchro deck soon as soon as I get to test it.

So Yugioh Championship Chicagoa Is this weekend..

I can see in top 16:


Perfect Herald



Frogs of some kind


Machina Gadgets


Maybe LS or BW


The width strains against the failing hate.

Yugioh Deck: QuickDraw Sworns

2 x  Light and Darkness Dragon
1 x Dark Armed Dragon
1 x Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
3 x Quickdraw Synchron
1 x Aurkus, Lightsworn Druid
2 x Dandylion
1 x Jain, Lightsworn Paladin
3 x Junk Synchron
1 x Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner
2 x Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
1 x Necro Gardna
1 x Plaguespreader Zombie
2 x Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
3 x Synchron Explorer
2 x Wulf, Lightsworn Beast

1 x Brain Control
1 x Charge of the Light Brigade
1 x Foolish Burial
1 x Heavy Storm
1 x Monster Reincarnation
2 x Pot of Avarice
1 x Reinforcement of the Army
3 x Solar Recharge

2 x Royal Decree

1 x Trap Dustshoot

This is my most recent lightsworn build and I will break it down for you.

Monsters: Mostly instant synchros with a few nice boss monsters like LADD and DAD. I was thinking of adding Chaos Sorcerer and may try to find room for it. LS mills for you speeding up the synchro power of this deck alot. Dandny is there for LADD or synchro into Junk Destroyer.

Spells: Mostly Lightsworn Engine Stuff with Pot of arvice to get back and re-use cards like LADD DAD or Synchron Expolorer. Foolish has so many plays in this deck it isn't funny.

Traps: Royal Decree helps you keep these strong monsters on the field. Trap Dusthoot is there in case you draw it first turn, which is a very good start for anyone.

Overall the deck has doen good vs : X-sabers, Frog Monarchs and Fortune Lady Zero.

Banisher Of the Radiance

Tried this card in gadgets, it tends to put pressue on opponent to go after it. This is good because at the same time you can continue summoning gadgets and should be able to protect Banisher with D-prisons ect..

It counters the meta greatly since the meta is xsabers and infernitys right now. My anti meta line up today was:

2 Thunder King Rai-oh

2 Doomcaliber Knight

2 Banisher of The Radiance

From there I had typical Gadget stuff like Cyber Dragon, Tragoedia and the Gadgets themselves.

The build beat everyone I vsed today. i beat BW's, Quickdraw and Absolute Zero. I hope tomorrow to test vs infernity and x-sabers.

Later I will say more about the deck..
