It seems weird to start a tourney report series involving Goat Format, considering I haven’t been part of any major official tournaments. But over the course of playing, I found a couple of instances, while hysterical at times, are worthy enough for an article.

Goat Format has been extensively revisited and analysed. I personally believe that no card can really be considered a Tech Choice at this point of time now, simply because of how much the format has grown. A card or two may catch you by surprise from time to time, especially for players transiting to playing online, and meet with decks or a larger variety. But I doubt any card will have a significant impact and be effective enough for it to be long-lasting. Any card of that calibre would have been common knowledge by now.

Almost all of your favorite Goat players have personally requested to me at one point or another that I not write this article. The deck I’m about to show you is so broken that it’s on the table for being banned in three Magic formats and one Pokemon format. It’s so cheesy against unprepared opponents that it can destabilize entire competitive communities with its presence. As Edo once said about a deck that was not even close to as good as this one, “Its nastiness and pure cheese factor would give anyone lactose intolerance. It is one of the most evil decks in the world of Duel Monsters, and should NOT be taken lightly.

If you’re confused by the title, I would not blame you. “Who’s the Beatdown?” is an article written by Mike Flores in 1999 for The Magic the Gathering website, The Dojo. While the Dojo was shut down in 2000, the fundamentals from these articles stand the test of time.

Rarely played in competitive circles, Amazons are a fun tribe to play in the right meta. Despite their aggressive-looking style, most are lacking in the brute strength department. Instead, they rely on combat tricks to win the day. Because these tricks, they can surprise even veteran players with powerful plays.

Gravekeeper’s in Goat Format is a deck and a strategy that, I feel, needs little introduction. One of the first true archetypes released in the game, Gravekeeper’s have seen play off and on since their release, and even today you still see duelists trying hard to make them work. I played Gravekeeper’s back when Goat Format was live, though not as my main deck. I played them in 2008 when I tried to get back into the game, and again in 2014 when I tried to get back into the game again. Needless to say, I really, really like Gravekeeper’s.

Chaos Recruiter, in Goat Format, is a concept that is actually somewhat modern. Though recruiters have been around since Magic Ruler dropped, they only saw sporadic play. Mystic Tomato saw the most, especially before Goat Format was live, notably in Tomato Control during the era of Yata-Garasu. But they’ve fallen by the wayside in the modern era, be it current or in Goat Format. Except when it comes to Chaos Recruiter.

Goat Format has a lot of different strategies and decks that you can play, despite having a small card pool. One of the bigger challengers to Goat Control today is Skilled Chaos, actually. It’s a powerful build, and Skilled Chaos in Goat Format is a really strong control deck. In this article I’m going to lay out the build, talk about the card choices and why the deck plays what it plays, and some of the basic strategies that it employs.

Last week, I talked about why you should play Goat Control. And while I do think that anyone who wants to get better at the format should be playing Goat Control, the fact is that the Goat Format card pool is pretty diverse. There’s a lot of ways to get creative with your decks and your strategies
