A Returning Duelist

Post  maxmartin on Sat Feb 12, 2011 5:20 pm

Hello all!

I am Max, and I am returning to Yugioh. I stopped playing about four years ago and am now looking to get back into it. I have never participated in a tournament and I consider all my cards "old". I have done some research about the new Syncro cards and have researched about tournaments in Adelaide, at Sports Card World and Infinity Games.

I have thought that I might go to a tournament and watch, to see what kind of cards people are playing and the kind of people there. I am 17 so if theres someone around my age that could help me get back into the swing of things and if they wish, give me a couple of cards that could be useful to me that they no longer need, it would be highly appreciated.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

haha nice to meet you.

I also have a few questions which I hope you guys can help me out on.

Because I haven't played for a few years I have forgotten something, when you place a monster on the field in defence position, does it have to be face down (set) or can it be face up?

Do the majority of adelaide duelists use the synchro monsters, or are they not as common in this area?

That leads me onto my next couple of questions. Is it worth me getting the 5D's Starter Deck to get some synchros and more up to date spell and trap cards? Is it available in adelaide card stores (sports card world, infinity games etc.)? How much does it cost, and is there a price difference at either stores?

Personally I would like to support these card stores rather than the bigger department stores, e.g. toyworld etc. simply due to the fact that they dont just provide a product (cards) but also a service (tournaments) and I believe that that is what will keep the Adelaide dueling scene alive.

I can answer those:

1) Either face-up Attack Position or face-down Defense Position.

2) Depends on the Deck. It's better to have them than not to. They're basically amazing (i'd recommend researching the Synchro Summon Mechanic)

3) No. The only decent card in there is Colossal Fighter. No.4 will explain why.

4) Alot of the better Decks going around at the moment are fairly cheap to build. Therefore, i'd suggest buying your cards online. Rather than waste money
on packs and such. That way, it'll be easier for you to build a semi-Decent Deck.

If you want, i can provide you with Deck Lists for the current Tier 1 Decks

www.trollandtoad.com or www.ebay.com.au are the best sites to use if your looking for singles.

Thanks. At the moment I can't buy offline and I have $35 to spend. Over the next couple of days I will probably go into Sports Card World at some point and buy some cards. What decks and/or booster packs should I get?

i recommend you make machina gadgets.
all you have to do is buy three machina mayhem structure decks and you have a good competitive deck right there and you dont need synchros for it. the entire deck costs about 40 dollars. Very Happy

another idea is to buy

3 machina gadgets structures and 1 marik structure (because it comes with alot of really excellent commons.

or:

buy 3 the dark emperor structures.

macro is undeniably good. and relatively cheap to make.

but you cant find dark emperor structures no more. pretty much buy any structure deck around and you will be able to make a good deck with a few extra staples

I dont kno where he is hetting his prices form... hopefully troll and toad

Hey i Michael, i work at sports card world and am currently head of the yugioh.

I would suggest that you wait a few weeks longer and see what the ban list will be and make a tier 1 deck from that so you will be at the stage where everyone else is because it will be all trial and error except for six samurai deck unless they get hit by the new list (very unlikely because Konami are going to milk them or ll the money they can get...)

anyway good luck and hope to see you around

P.S.
I have 2 stardust dragons (arguably the best syncho in the game) that you may have for free next time i see you.
Stardust dragons effects and stats can be found at this link below

So I have $40 now.

What should I buy that adds up to $40? All structure decks (if so which ones)? All boosters (if so which ones)? a mix of structure decks and boosters (if so which ones and what combinations)?

I was thinking about buying two Mechina Mayhem Structure Decks, presuming their about $20 and making a deck out of them.

Hi I'm Tim, I usually go to SCW but anyways, buying 2/3 structure decks to make it isn't really needed, unless of course if you are a lazy person lawl xD I made my machinas by getting singles of people, finished it in 2 days Smile Since I already had all the staples [staples = cards that are commonly used in other decks] I only needed a couple :3

Hope I get to see you sometime Smile
