Sneak Peak And 2 New Decks. 2 Post's in 1

Hey guy's

So recently I attended the Storm Of Ragnarok Sneak Preview at my new local store. So I'm basically going to describe the day and what happened.

So I arrive at the venue early and buy a Red Nova Dragon tin and some Yusei 3 duelist packs, you will understand why later in the post. Anyways yeah after all the commotion I play a few games with my new X Saber Deck and was suprised with the results. The extra Effect Veiler and Pashuul really helped and made the deck that much better in a lot of matchups which made me happy. I also managed to trade my 2 ultra Mystical Space Typhoon's and 1 Super Nimble Mega Hamster for a super rare Dark Armed Dragon, a Gold Necro Gardna, Fabled Grimro and 2 Blackwing Vayu The Emblem Of Honor.

So after finally sitting everyone we get our pack and open them. I pull ok I guess. I got the Six Samurai field spell along with some of the samurai commons. I also got a Worm King and the Nordic Search Trap Card (Gleipnir, Fetter's of Fenrir). So not terrible pulls. I build my deck using what I have. I basically went for beatdown with samurai along with control from my worms.

So I wont go into too much detail but I win all 5 rounds and make top 4. I then am confident in winning the mat and play against the only other guy who was undefeated. He pulled a lot of samurai cards along with Smoke Signal's and it made me lose due to his sheer speed of his deck. So I lose and am generally dissapointed after I realised I lost game 1 due to a misplay on my part.

So after the Sneak I got the rest of the packs along with the T.O and we open them. He pulls ok in rarities, however he pulls Kizan and 1 Kageki along with another Shien's Smoke Signal. I pulled pretty much the exact same as I did in the sneak. I got another Gleipnir and another Worm King but I did pull a bunch of Kagemusha and Kageki so they were helpful in trades.

So overall the sneak wasn't terrible but wasn't great either. I really wanted the mat and was sure I would win but oh well I'm hoping to win the next tournament there on the 6th March which will hopefully deal with Samurai.

So after I finished opening packs I managed to trade for a 3rd Blackwing Vayu The Emblem Of Honor and also managed to get a third Legionaire along with some commons I needed. I then got to test against the T.O with his new Samurai deck. It was basically the builds that have been on Shriek.

Basics of the games were I had to either draw decent and have some kind of out to Kageki and Gateway or draw Boggart Faultroll and hope he didn't have Solemn Warning or Book Of Moon

The 1st match I won and the second match he won then we played a few games just testing the decks and seeing what worked and what didn't. Seemed Samurai were good but as always not as good as the hype. They are very difficult to deal with and have many big plays however like all decks they can be stopped and can be beaten. Just annoying that if they open godly and go first and you don't have effect veiler you lose which is annoying more than anything.

I also forgot to mention after the Sneak Peak I managed to trade my first Gleipnir, Fetters of Fenrir and some other jank stuff for a ultimate Trident Dragion and a Dragunity Knight - Vajriyana, which leads me onto my next topic. My 2 new decks I'm building and new video updates.

Ok so the first deck I'm building is going to be a Dragunity deck. Ever since the structure was released in Japan I have seen a lot of potential in them and have tested a lot of version ranging from Volcanic shell varients and Dandylion varients to the simple Light and Darkness dragon loop varient and some other weird ones I found along the way, however this build below seems to be the most consistant and as it's only for fun you'll see how it works and what not.

3 Dragunity Dux
3 Dragunity Aklys
3 Dragunity Phalanx
3 Dragunity Legionaire
2 Dragunity Arma Mystletain
2 Dragunity Arma Leyvaten
1 Morphing Jar
1 Sangan

3 Terraforming
3 Dragon Ravine
3 Book Of Moon
3 Cards Of Conscanence
2 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Monster Reborn
1 Pot Of Avarice
1 Giant Trunade
1 Foolish Burial
1 Mind Control
1 Dark Hole

3 Royal Decree

So this is the build I'm going to be building when the new Structure deck is released. All I'm currently missing now is the new structure deck cards, 1 Cards of Conscanence,2 Dragunity Knight Vajriyana and 1 Dragunity Knight Gae Dearg

Along with the Dragunity Deck I also plan to build a Karakuri deck, however not based soley on the theme but rather as an engine much like Rock stun uses Ko'aki Meiru as an engine.

3 Machina Fortress
3 Machina Gearframe
3 Karakuri Ninja "Kuick"
3 Karakuri Soldier "Nisamu"
2 Karakuri Strategist "Nishipachi"
2 Karakuri Watchdog "Siazan"
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Card Trooper
1 Sangan

3 Book Of Moon
2 Mystical Space Typoon
1 Limiter Removal
1 Monster Reborn
1 Giant Trunade
1 Pot Of Avarice
1 Mind Control
1 Dark Hole

2 Dust Tornado
2 Urgent Tuning
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Call Of The Haunted
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Mirror Force

So the basis of the deck is basically to use the Karakuri engine to synchro the 2 Karakuri Synchro's and gain advantage through urgent tuning and Karakuri Ninja. The Machina engine is just there for extra beatdown and deck thinning. Machina fortress can easily be used aswell to help get Ninja a tuner in the grave to revive. Basic turn would be summon Machina Gearframe to get Fortress. Drop Fortress and Karakuri Warchdog to special summon him then set Urgent Tuning. Following turn summon Karakuri Strategist, synchro for "Burei" and then get Ninja then attack with Ninja and get out Strategist use effect on itself to get a draw from "Burei" then use urgent tuning to get out another Burei and use effect to get out either another Ninja, Strategist or any other Karakuri. So the deck can synchro and spam monster's easily aswell as Synchro for many monster's. Either way the deck is a lot of fun. At the moment I have very little of the deck, however I plan to get most of it when I go to my locals back at home this weekend.

Anyways thats it for that post. Hope you guy's enjoyed reading this and found something interesting. Hopefully my next post will be at some point before my locals talking about X Sabers and the future they have in the new metagame along with updates on my Karakuri testing.
