    who wins

  • Aviv Shvitzky

    Guys i’v been able to beat tons of Qliports with this anti-meta deck, some cards in here like the multi-destruction traps has a lot of potential vs BA too, and the space-time is just good vs everything. I wonder if you have any tips to finish the build or change it? Thanks!

    http://i.imgur.com/hXIiflR.png

    • Khrys Jacek

      37 cards? and you need to go to 40? there’s only one answer.

      -Upstart Goblin.

      • Aviv Shvitzky

        Thing is, this deck has 1 strategy of clearing the way with traps for direct attacks, but giving out life points with such weak attackers might mean another turn, and for that i need another good trap to stop him. i just can’t make real damage with the deck. the answer will be probably to take couple of the traps and so include the artifact engine that i didn’t liekd so much :

        • Khrys Jacek

          Hehe I was just making a reference for some player that is famous here.

          I’ll add 1 COTH to start i guess, also I think mst mained is important for cliffords. (Not very good vs shadolls except for shutting emptiness and sniping those el-shadoll fusions).

  • Tyson Pan

    Alexander Martin’s Decklist is messed his main deck is a total of 39 and his side is only 12 unless i’m counting wrong

    • JC

      no rubic….no virgil…1 fire lake and still topped…..woweee

      • Black_Phil

        lol he actually put the deck together 30 minutes before the event.

  • Overgames

    Hoban’s list doesn’t include “The Beginning of the End”, but he milled it in his feature match?

    • localbballer23

      maybe the writer thought it was beginning of the end but it was actually allure?

  • Mariomon

    That side deck naturia beast tech. Skillful.

  • Coldsteel100

    burning abyss and qliphorts dominated… shaddolls going down….

    • Miles Valentino

      I mean, there were 4 in the top 16 and the Qliphort hype was real so I expected there to be a shift from Shaddoll to Qliphort. That doesn’t mean that Shaddoll isn’t the best or one of the top decks.

      • Aviv Shvitzky

        Ye i don’t think we shall exaggerate, every top-deck had a decent number of spots in the top 16, 6-6-4, and the format is just starting to take shape. If Nouse didn’t forgot to normal summon vs hoban, he would have taken at least the first game, and who knows if he wouldn’t won in the end, then people will start saying that shadol is the best. Shaddoll can actually thrive from this semi-underdog spot, because qliport and BA might focus on their rivalry and forget the potential that shadol has. For exmaple, Qliports might start maining night beams to stop Lake, and Shadolls will be able to take advantage of that, considering they can play almost no traps, and can play around the beam with activating SSG in the SP or somthin, maybe even bluffing with core to make them trigger it with night beam.
