What I've been up to

What I've been up to







"Dark Armed Dragon"
Hello members of the
Yu-Gi-Oh! blogosphere. Please accept my most humble apologies for my
recent absence. As I'm sure most of you know, sometimes life intervenes
against children's trading card games.


In what little free time I have
had, I decided to be unnecessarily cruel by building Tele-DAD. I don't
mean a modern version, I mean THE Tele-DAD. I decided to restrict myself
to cards that were available during September 08 format just to give my
opponents some kind of fighting chance.


Needless to say, I have yet to lose
a match. The sheer ferocity of the deck is stunning. I have never seen a
deck ignore a Torrential Tribute and still do almost enough damage for
game, it's very brutal. I was very careful to make observations on the
deck as I was mercilessly beating my opponent into a pulp.


This is where a little bit of
controversy comes in. A heavily debated card (on Pojo at least) is Heavy
Storm. A lot of people want it back. I myself have always been
anti-Storm, mainly due to my bias towards control deck I will admit.
However, when I saw Tele-DAD in action, my anti-Storm position was taken
to a whole new level. I'm not exaggerating when I say 100% of my game
wins are a consequence of Heavy's existence, even if I don't draw it.


A lot of my local meta consists of
players who weren't present during Tele-DAD format, hence why my
exercise was necessary to change people's views. All of my victims so
far have become anti-Storm supporters. Taking into consideration how
pro-Storm some of these people were, I call it a job well done on my
behalf.


When you are so terrified to set
more than 1 Spell or Trap in fear of one card, you lack the ability to
form an adequate defense against such decks. As I said before, one set
Torrential will not help you against these kinds of decks. Even more
disgustingly, cards like Mystical Space Typhoon become Harpie's Feather
Duster very quickly.


If you lack the capacity to stop
such an aggressive deck, which was sadly the case in the Storm formats,
you will lose. This eradicates any sort of defensive decks, which
clearly isn't good for sales or the health of the game.


With exceeds on the horizon, I have
become very concerned about the back row. Let's hope that Konami sticks
with their new found logic and keeps Heavy Storm banned. I don't think
anybody wants a repeat of Tele-DAD format.

I rated this awesome.

I'm not surprised that the people supporting for Heavy Storm to come back never faced the power of Tele-DAD.

Some
of the duelists I know think it's silly that Heavy Storm is banned so I
will probably show them this. If this doesn't convince them, then I
guess I will make a Tele-DAD deck like you did and beat them with it
LOL.

I still am Pro-Storm just because of my bias against backrow wars... I
stopped playing competitively in Tele-DAD format but I know how godlike
the deck is as I've built it before on YVD and the videogames.

Heavy
Storm does win duels but the reason it was so devastating to your
opponents was because they were playing their new format decks in this
format's style of Backrow Wars as that is what they became accustomed to
against a deck that runs the very card that upon banning started this
kind of play.

My stance is that Heavy Storm is both healthy and
unhealthy for the game and a middleground may need to be reached... I
personally run 2x MST 2x Dust and 1x Seven Tools in most decks now due
to not having Heavy Storm...

I like Backrow wars because it's
kind of like the anime but at the same time monsters are a lot less
important now than before...

I started playing YGO at Nov 2007, when Dark Armed Dragon just came out.
Then I realized most of the games were won, or lost, because of Heavy
Storm. Since then, I have hoped Heavy Storm got banned.

Before
Heavy Storm got banned, I have only created one deck without it. Having
Heavy Storm just promotes too many aggressive plays.

Heavy Storm was only scary in Teledad because all of the draw power made
it come up far more often than it should normally. You also cannot
blame Heavy Storm for the damage that the monsters and mass special
summoning were doing to the game. Heavy Storm was never considered
broken until DAD came out.

Heavy Storm is no different than
Torrential Tribute or Mirror Force or any other power card - it must be
played around accordingly, or risk consequences. This is the foundation
of skilled plays in Yugioh.

tl:dr, if you don't like Heavy Storm, play Starlight Road.

@Kamitsure: Use a "desensitized" build. Most Tele-DAD decks were
designed to kill other Tele-DAD decks. Make sure you remove all the
mirror match cards before slaughtering the opposition.

@Yuginshin:
The difference is that monsters are very easy to replace. Most decks
posses monsters that float. Be it the Gadgets, the Worm engine, the
Infernity engine, Machina Gearframe, Sangan, Darksoul, etc. Cards like
Monster Reborn and Pot of Avarice also exist, meaning that monsters are
disposable.

Spells and Traps, however, for the most part aren't
and never have been self-replacing. The only commonplace exception to
this rule is Miracle Synchro Fusion. I don't mind being Dark Hole'd
because my monsters can be replaced at a moment's notice. For most
decks, this is not the case.

@petqwe: I'm so glad I have people that are on my wavelength. Thanks for backing me up.

@Michael
Bonacini: I respect your merit as a player, but you are dismissing some
key facts. Spells and traps are, for the most part, irreplaceable.
People never used to set much in fear of Heavy because their spells and
traps were irreplaceable. That effectively means that one cannot form a
proper defense.

This is where decks like Tele-DAD come in.
Whether or not Heavy is drawn is totally irrelevant. You will know this
after being on both ends of the deck. The abnormally high draw power is
used to make the aggression happen faster, nothing else. There aren't
many decks that can swarm that quickly anymore, but there are certainly
decks that can make swarms as strong as or stronger than a Tele-DAD
field in the current metagame. Right now, the back row prevents these
sorts of plays from happening out of the blue.

Heavy Storm is
VERY different from Torrential Tribute or Mirror Force, or even Dark
Hole for that matter. Heavy Storm hits an irreplaceable asset, whereas
the aforementioned three do not.

Starlight Road vs. Heavy Storm
format (late Sep09 in the OCG and Mar10 in both) were by far the least
skillful and most luck based formats I have ever seen. It was a case of
who drew what first.

If you analyze the current meta, nobody is
maining SLR. Nobody really cares about monster nukes. Monsters are
replaceable, spells and traps are not.

The game does need a card like heavy storm to be less annoying. Heavy
did make things very sacky but that was because of how much crap came
out in one turn. Back when we had heavy people only ran around 5 traps.
Before we had all this nonsense special summons turn 2 GG nonsense Heavy
Storm was still legal...

During the CC years we had Heavy Storm
but people only ran around 5 traps, not due to being scared of storm but
because we had all of those broken spells and monsters (Almost all of
which have been banned for years). Back when we had 1 MST people still
only ran 5 traps... MST back then was dangerous... I even laugh at MST
now "How can this help me through that 4 set backrow of crap and Shi
En."

Heavy did terrorize people of setting too many things but
at the same time it made chainable trap cards like Threatening Roar
relevant. Now why would you run T.Roar when you can just as easily
negate the summon with your Solemn Warning (Which back under Heavy days
wouldn't be played at all as it would just get destroyed before going
off).

If you analyze the current meta, nobody is maining Pot of
Avarice except decks that have replaceable monsters... Sams die
immediately if they get hit by Dark Hole/Mirror Force/Torrential Tribute
and there is little chance of a comeback. Giant Trunade on Sams does
nothing as they still have their indomitable monsters of negation
(assuming they don't outright negate your Giant Trunade). Same story
with Gravekeepers... I have had many a time to protect an attack
position spy... due to it being the only monster I would see for awhile.

Monster
Nukes are extremely powerful this meta... There is no Spell/Trap Nuke
this meta... But when we had Heavy Storm... Monster Nukes weren't all
that great... Spell/Trap Nukes were extremely powerful... except you
only hit about 2 traps with Heavy...

Another thing is that People
run more than double the traps they used to run due to there being less
useful spells and more useful traps due to the banning of Heavy Storm.

Note:
I played most competitively during the CC years and Troop Dupe. I
stopped playing competitively from the beginning of the Return DAD
era... I started again competitively from Storm of Ragnarok.

Anyway
that is what I think... remember I am completely biased towards the
more skillful formats. I don't feel skillful setting enough traps to
stop 2 summons/attacks and 1 to nuke the field and 1 to negate their
negation and then either setting a Spy or summoning Rai-Oh... I just
feel like a real douche (Yes this happens a lot)... Right now it just
isn't fun to play (Though it's tons of fun to win).
