PostSubject: BLACK DORMITORY Lesson 1: Basic Deck Concepts   Sat Mar 22, 2014 3:19 pm

Welcome to your first lesson. Today, I'll be talking about the basic deck concepts of yu-gi-oh and giving a short explanation for each. With something like 5000 cards in the game, it can be difficult to choose a deck to play, so this should give you the first of many tools you'll need to successfully choose and build a deck.

The Aggro deck:

The aggro deck focuses on beating their opponent to a pulp with monsters as quickly as possible. They rarely play enhancements for their monsters, such as equip spells, favouring the quantity over size ideal. Aggro has been the single most supported of the 3 basic deck concepts since the beginning of yugioh, from high attacking level 4 monsters to the myriad of special summon facilitating cards. Aggro decks can define formats (I'm looking at you, teleDAD) and they are frequently one of the decks to beat at the highest levels (Chaos Dragons, Dragon Rulers, Mermails). They are simple and effective. No matter where you go to play, you will run into a large number of these.

The Control Deck:

This deck truly focuses on saying "No." to your opponent. It endeavours to grind it's opponent's resources to nothing to make way for a comparatively weak win condition. Control decks require some of the most skill-intensive play to be seen in yu-gi-oh (goat control, dino rabbit, evilswarm) careful management of resources is necessary for the implicit grind games that control decks go for. Usually, the longer the game is, the better shape a control deck will be in. When playing a control deck, it's important to do research about metagames. Gravekeepers aren't too effective in a format that defines itself by summoning from the deck. You have to have at least a passable knowledge of what is in your opponent's deck, what it can or can't be do and when to use your valuable counters.

The solitaire deck:

Truly, this is the kind of deck that is the most hated of all. The deck that simply says "sit there while i win, please". Decks such as Final Countdown, Exodia, Chain Burn and Magical Scientist OTK adorn the limited list of solitaire decks. Though largely considered unskillful, degenerate and trolly, the deck does have some very strong points in specific metagames. In a format where counters are few and far between, a deck like final countdown or exodia can experience some success. The deck is rather autopilot in game 1 of any match, but the real skill in playing a solitaire deck comes post-sideboard, games 2 and 3. Game 1 is won when you build the deck, game 2 or 3 are won with the careful application of resources. and side deck tech.

In conclusion:
Though the best decks are never mutually exclusive to any concept, understanding which concept suits your playstyle and the current metagame, be it at your local tournaments, here in the academy or on the worldwide scale, sets you up for success.

Black Dormitory homework:
I want you to build me a unique deck** that showcases one of the 3 concepts (Using the april 1st,2014 TCG forbidden and limited list, with any cards from Legend of Blue-Eyes to Legacy of the Valiant) Marks will be awarded for deck creativity. I would also like a card by card explanation for your specific choices. Lastly, i want you to convince me of WHY your deck is a good representation of your chosen concept. Give me a reason to play it. I will choose what I believe to be the best deck (without testing it) based on your argument. Be truthful and frank, I need to know which deck will give me the edge. I will also schedule a tournament in the near future, where you will be required to use the deck you created in a single elimination tournament, culminating with the winner facing off against me (I will be using the deck i chose from yours).

Where is disaster dragons classified in?
I think its a mixture of aggro and control so its an aggro-control
am I right??

I made my disaster dragon and blue-eyes dragon for aggro decks
main reason for disaster being aggro is because of red-eyes darkness metal dragon which can special summon dragons from the grave once per turn which can be deadly if u have a strong monster like blue-eyes in ur grave.
Blue-eyes deck well....because of blue-eyes lol.When u have kaibaman ad blue-eyes in ur hand then that's instant offense there also using maiden and white stone that's a very aggro deck.
So that's my homework

@Dr.Rook

there is one more deck you might need to mention
Incoherent Summons Deck:
this is like the Aggro deck but 1 key thing.. most of this decks Specials can't be chained (Yes I am referring to Pendulums) and can spam lots of random monsters and potentially OTK/FTK [winning 1 turn] your oponent and make there head spin....

and good use of the word "Aggro" *Kudos to you Dr.Rook*
