C. Dragon Punch

I like to play a children’s card game on the side when I just want to kill some time. It gets the gears in my head spinning as I try to take my mind off the things that are bothering/distracting me.

I often use a Cyber Dragon deck strategy in particular that I bust out when I want to get an enjoyable win against any given opponent. It is not a high-tier or competitive deck strategy by any means (at this point in the meta, anyway), but it is a fun deck to play and it can pull off some awesome victories when Lady Luck is on my side.

The Strategy
This deck runs a straightforward, 40-card deck minimum geared toward one particular purpose: a ONE TURN KILL (OTK). With the right cards, I can literally take my opponent down in one turn, assuming I can get a clear shot in. The deck relies a lot on deck thinning to improve the odds I get the essential cards necessary for a win. There are also a lot of stall cards if I need to buy time.

Key Cards

Like the namesake of the deck, Cyber Dragon tactics entail a lot of card combos to bring out big, giant killing machines.

In most cases, I end up fusing together monsters for Cyber Twin Dragon (often considered superior to Cyber End Dragon by the way). With a few simple tricks, my monster(s) can be poised to do more than 10,000 damage in one turn, easily.

Once I get a killing machine out in play, I then try to augment their strength even further with power-raising cards. This makes sure that my attacks against my opponents will hurt. A lot.

I also wedged in a lot of cards meant to bypass/remove a lot of threats on the field that could block my big attacks. Shutting down my opponent’s defense is very vital to this deck’s main purpose. There are cases where I cannot realistically cover all my bases as I set up for the finishing blow, but every lit bit helps. An empty or vulnerable field for my opponent often means a victory for me. 🙂

In Conclusion
I amply named this deck strategy the “C. Dragon Punch.” The deck revolves around doing a devastating blow toward my opponent in one fell swoop. Though this deck is not exactly ideal against tougher or quicker decks, it can sure catch a lot of opponents off-guard when I blast them from 8000 to zero Life Points just like that. This is a “casual” deck that still does a lot of work in this day and age.

Children’s card game, yo! >^..^<

    Easily one of my favorite cards in the game. Nothing is more fun than throwing it on a full field and just ruining everyone else’s day.

    I used to play, but the people I play with (mostly judges and tourney players) were hyper-competitive about it. You never saw anything outside of Blackwings, Lightsworn, or whatever the other flavor of the month was.

    Would definitely play a free (in the league of legends sense, meaning well done) official online version, though. Come on, Konami/Upperdeck/whoever’s in charge this week, I need my TCG fix!
