YCS San Jose

Hello bromigos!

I know I just started this shit but I want to tell you I'm going to be at YCS (Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series) San Jose.  It's pretty exciting to me.  Me and 6 friends will be driving up north later on today.  6 hours in a car filled to the brim with guys.  Sounds like I'll be having the time of my life!

I'm going to be running a scrap deck, not sure not sure of the final build ut currently it looks something liek this.

Monsters 21

3x Scrap Golem
3x Scrap Goblin
2x Scrap Chimera
2x Scrap Beast
2x The Tricky
2x Cyber Dragon
2x Battle Fader
1x Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1x Treeborn Frog
1x Sasuke Samurai #2
1x Card Trooper
1x Level Eater

Spells 17

3x Scrapyard
2x Scrapstorm
2x Enemy Controller
2x Mystical Space Typhoon
1x Monster Reborn
1x One for One
1x Foolish Burial
1x Dark Hole
1x Mind Control
1x Giant Trunade
1x Cold Wave
1x Pot of Avrice

Traps 2

1x Ultimate Offering
1x Phoenix Wing Wind Blast

I know what you're thinking, "No books?  Everyone runs 3 books!  What are you doing!?"
Well, I decided against them seeing as how 1) Scrap Dragon protects me during my opponent's turn by resurrecting either Golem or Goblin, 2) Scrap Dragon can just blow up their cards on my turn without attacking, and 3) I'm too ghetto to afford foil books and don't buy cards unless they're maxed pimp.

The next thing you might notice is the very few traps I'm running.  I was honestly going to run none but I had a foil Ultimte Offering on my table when I was making this and my friend told me to just throw in the wing blast.  It's not like I need a lot of protection.  I mean look, two Faders and a Gorz on top of the easily summoned Scrap Dragon is already enough to prevent me from dying on my opponent's turn.

The final thing I believe you must be asking is "What in the world is Sasuke Samurai #2 doing in there?"  Let me say this, Sasuke Samurai #2 is a boss.  I bring it out with One for One, call priority and the rest of the turn is easy goings.  Either tribute it for Golem to make a dragon or blow up my opponent with an already existing one.  They won't be able to respond since Sasuke Samurai would have already used his effect.

I know this sounds bad and there's a good reason for that.  It's because it is bad.  I'm a bade player but cheer for me while I'm at YCS anyway!  Maybe I'll get a feature match.

Until next time followers.


  1. i used to play yugioh in the 4th grade an up, it was the shit back then

    check my blog for sick politics!

  2. Good luck! I play the DS games with friends online, but I kinda suck so... :|

  3. Hahhahaha nice! I used to play yugioh man, i stil got my cards up to SOVR =x
    Now i'm just an SC2 player xD will follow you =]

  4. I wish I lived in the 831. I live in the ass of California.

  5. the FFF.. I wish I still played. I should learn your strategy and go challenge my cousin.

  6. I play Magic: The Gathering and that's what my blog is concerned about. Card games are fantastic.

  7. I used to play this game as a kid :P

  8. Can you play Magic and Yu Gi Oh at the same time? Shuffle the decks together. Put some playing cards in there for good measure.

  9. Looks like a nice build, any advice for someone who is trying to get back into the game? I used to play back in 8th grade and I'm so lost on what to do now

  10. It's really easy to get back into the game. You could look at the official site for deck lists of recent winners and copy their builds or just go to yugioh wikia and look around. There's a lot of useful information on there.

  11. best of luck bro
