New Concept : Volcanic
January 3, 2011 § 6 Comments
I know it has been awhile, but I have a lack of inspiration as of late.
Nothing innovative has happened in the format, tournaments are so far apart from each other. What I will be discussing today is the skeleton of the newest deck in my arsenal.
Lets start with Volcanic Rocket : level 4, pyro, 1900 ATK 1400 DEF.
When this card is summoned you can add 1 Blaze Accelerator from your deck or graveyard to your hand.
This card is basically its own Stratos, or a Gadget since it instantly replaces itself when it is summoned. The greatest part of this is that its summon should always be a plus 1 because it can retrieve the card from the graveyard.
Blaze Accelerator is a continous spell card that can destroy monsters on the opponents side of the field by discarding 1 pyro type monster with 500 ATK or less to the graveyard. You cannot declare battle this turn.
The last piece of the puzzle is Volcanic Shell which is a pyro monster with 100 ATK, and is level 1. When it is in the graveyard you can pay 500 lifepoints to grab another shell from your deck and add it to your hand.
This creates a very control gamestate, and the important thing is finding decks that can use these cards effectively.
The way I am focusing on it at the moment is by combinding it with Flamvells, in an attempt to control the tempo and massive pushes with Firedog and Synchros.
My goal as of late is to make this deck top tier, and eventually make it mainstream. First I will be taking this build to my local to see how it fairs against the random assortment of jank.
Thanks for being patient with me, and if you guys have anything you would like me to discuss please leave a comment and I will take it into consideration.
