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.

One of the most important things in Yu-Gi-Oh!, be it past formats or modern, is the side deck. Any competitive player understands how important it is and why it’s used. Basically, you side out cards out that are bad against the deck you’re up against, and side in cards that are good against it.
