    Did you even look at the Advanced format limited list? I took the pleasure of linking you to it just in case.

    Other than that.....I don't see any sort of synergy in this deck, it seems all over the place, what are you trying to do with it?

    i am still working out the kinks. im trying to make a special summon/xyz deck. about the ban list, im looking for suggestions to replace the banned cards.
  4. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    Well that is a very broad topic to narrow down onto, you will need some sort of strategy to focus on, then tune the deck around that, right now your deck is trying to be way too much, it has to be your call first to choose a specific strategy before advice can be given. Any deck needs synergy, or in other words the ability to work well with itself.

    im trying to get together a deck where i can special summon with ease, and bring out destructive xyz
  6. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    Yes but you need to narrow in on something that you can form the deck around, a specific key strategy Like if you wanted, focus the deck around Gogogo Golem, using Gogogo Ghost and Giant to perform rank 4 xyzs. Something that has some actual strategy and not just random cards thrown together
  7. mjunior3

    mjunior3 Link Jokers!

    i kinda like the randomness, because i dont have to worry about having spcific cards to do anything
  8. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    You see those specific cards actually help consistency, which is a driving factor in a lot of decks. If there's a time where you need a specific card, with all this randomness the chances of that happening are lower, specially if you have the ability to search for and summon monsters on a more specific scale. Now i'm not saying jump on the Meta-*** train but try at least to focus your deck
  9. mjunior3

    mjunior3 Link Jokers!

    meta train? i dont understand what that is. but if u have a theme that can be predictable, why not have randomness? would u recomend galaxy eyes photon dragon?
  10. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    Because Randomness will never be able to focus reliably enough to be able to win consistently. You'll face people who won't know what your deck really does but their reactions will be "Well, this seems easy enough, a rogue deck with no direction" And then do whatever strategies they have planned and knock you out almost everytime. You can't win in this game by throwing out random cards and hoping they work, you need to plan and strategize to overcome your opponent

    its worked so far. my bro is using a blackwing deck, and i shut it down EASILY.
  12. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    You're also using quite a lot of banned cards, and if he's running on the Advanced Format, that's a large handicap for him
  13. mjunior3

    mjunior3 Link Jokers!

    hes not. hes using alot of traps i am
  14. Kunaiman9u9

    Kunaiman9u9 Magikarp Salesman

    The traps aren't what is banned.
    Goyo Guardian
    Witch of the Black Forest
    Cyber Jar
    Change of Heart
    Graceful Charity
    Premature Burial

    ...Not a single banned trap, plus there's no telling whether your brother is able to build a good blackwing deck, or if he's capable of using it properly, I can show you synergy with the deck's i've made.
  15. mjunior3

    mjunior3 Link Jokers!

    good points. he has an average blkwing deck, and yes, he knows how to use them. they r his faves. he also makes a power deck, much like the one i use.
  16. the3rdH0kage

    the3rdH0kage Turn my Swag on!

    Just because they are his favorite archetype of cards doesn't mean he knows how to run them proerly. My favorite archetype is Karakuris and I can admit I don't run them right and my deck sould be better, I just play quite a few other cards games with more people to play against then Yugioh so most of my money for gomain goes toward them. But anyway yeah follow the banlist and you need to be consistent, running only one of a single card if it isn't o the list at all is kinda dumb (no offence). Try running 3 of the creatures you need, if your going for Rank 4 XYZ summons then Gogogo Golem is a good card, Number 39: Utopia is a staple in decks that use XYZ's. So try and make it more consistent, which in the long run will make the deck more lthal in general. and if your worrying about a certain type of deck use the Sideboard to the best of your advantage.

    I think Kunaiman summed it up perfectly - your Deck is too random. This won't work well in Tournaments, this won't even work well in casual Duels.

    Using random cards may looks like it's a good idea at first, since it can throw off your opponent, but after more Duels you'll realize it's actually a bad idea due to lack of consistency.
    That and your opponents will eventually realize your Deck is nothing more than just a random cards deck that lacked any actual strategy & consistency.

    If you have consistency, you don't have to worry about needing specific cards to do anything, because the specific cards will always be there.
    It's the lack of consistency that should make you worry.

    Since you said you want a "quick Xyz spam" Deck, I suggest using a Gagaga-Gogogo Deck.
    Gagaga can summon most Xyz monsters quickly due to their Level-changing ability, while Gogogo helps in summoning Rank 4 Xyz, which is the most abundant Rank.
    Add more Level-changing cards like Synchro Boost, Tannhauser Gate, or Galaxy Queen's Light, and you'll have an easier time summoning various Xyz monsters.

    You also can put a few splashable Tuners if you want to be able to summon Synchros as well.

    Also, once it is released outside Japan, I suggest getting Kamenleon. It's a Level 4 Tuner that helps both Synchro and Xyz.

    Thanks guys, and the advice is great. I might do a lightsworn or water deck, too. i'll try to update later.

    If its Lightsworns you are looking at, I can help with that, as for water decks.....(shudders at thoughts of Mermails and Atlanteans) There are a lot of different ways to go, the Water attribute has recieved a lot of support lately.

    Also a deck my roommate ran for a while was a Ninja Xyz Deck, pretty well and very consistent. Tricky to beat too.
