    No suhr, I run it because it can be good for Rank 4s and Rank 7s… if Chronograph was a Level 7 or Astrograph wasn’t banned. I would’ve ran either one.

    You would’ve run astrograph if it wasnt banned even though that was one of the most meta cards b4 it got banned. Seems slightly hypocritical to me. Theres also a lot of better level monsters that you could run that Yuma doesnt use: goblindbergh, armageddon knight. Although I have to give it to you, this deck runs semi-decent cards. Not bad. Also love the edgy-speech as the deck description. (that was not sarcasm)

    Goblind & Armageddon would not make this deck work. The point of Gagaga is special summon him as either Rank 4 or Rank 7, so Goblindbergh and Armageddon Knight will not help this deck, it would only make it brick into straight useless pointless Rank 4 summons I dont want or need.

    It’s not hypocritical because I dont use Venom Dragon or Odd Eyes type cards. Im not into overpowered Pendulum Fusions/Synchros/XyZ type monsters. This deck about Rank 4s & 7s as well Pendulum Summoning them to field in order to do so. Its about Dark Magician and supporting him.

    Yes suhr. That deck description is the absolute FTK.

    So you’re not into summoning good cards but FTK’s are fine. Also, saying someone blinked isnt really an otk and I dont see how you can ftk as you do no burn damage with this deck. If its about rank 4’s then play a lot of good rank 4’s. add armageddon AND a target like destrudo that brings itself back. Run level 4’s that special summon themselves at least so that you can make an xyz monster on your turn instead of normal summoning and passing.

    You do realize you can add in your own Extra deck monsters? You dont really have to use these in my sample list.

    And plus Gagaga Magician can be useful for EITHER situation. You can normal summon it or special summon it, then rank it up to 4 or 7 as I stated, best additional card to this deck.

    If you had DM on the field, and you only have Gagaga & other Level 7s in your hand that you couldnt normal summon/or special summon without the pendulums, you can normal summon Gagaga to increase his Level as a Level 7 to rank into. It’s a great addition and very useful.

    And this deck is competitive. Tried it against Altergeist. Very good deck. I could use an alternative for Magical Circle though and few other cards, other than that, this deck is a charm thanks to the new Master Rules.

    The new master rules didnt help this deck at all as you run a twelve card extra deck. Altergeist is neither meta nor good in my opinion – although the new support is decent. This deck cant be competitive otherwise it would have participated in meta. Thats why none of your decks are – because they rely too much on hypothetical situations.

    I change my Extra deck. This was just a sample Extra deck. You do know you can switch them out for better XyZ monsters? (photo credit: YGOPro from my Android)

    Lmao, cant afford to play against real people. Wait, whats that? A synchro monster! How interesting! Admit that without cards like that this deck would not be even considered rogue, which at this point still isnt. Love the hypocrisy and love the massive ego, just be careful not to trip on it – your not good playing against a computer designed for deck testing.

    Lmao ‘real’. That’s a good one, that one actually made me laugh. Is pro lame because people with actual talent who participate in tournaments play on there. That’s probably why you use dueling nexus, a dueling book for people that need a robot to help them play.Also, good for you…? A lot of people do that – though judging by the way your extra deck thats probably an accomplishment for you. I’m glad you beat orcust, that deck is not only helmet – but bad in its own regard and boring. I’m not like you where if someone says something about a deck i’ll instantly start shaking with sadness and anger. Hey, a few more decks and you’ll be this close to playing competitive dark magician. get off your high horse..

    I like how players feel threatened by Dark Magician. I thought he was the most fair and well balanced card thtoughout YGOs history. For it being a normal card, I see why you guys dislike DM and his support. I get it, hes not an overpowered Synchro/Link/Meta monster card that can spam boards or do much of everything but what he can do out play your Meta while still being in well balanced state of not being hit on a banlist.

    1. Players don’t feel threatened by Dark Magician. Maybe they could be a bit nervous responding to the effects as they might not know the cards, but DM isn’t some sort OP deck people fear: there is a reason why it’s not meta.
    2. People don’t mind DM support – I for one prefer if you’d play with the support rather than with generic level 4’s.
    3. Decks don’t work like that. If DM could outplay the meta an, as you proclaim it, be practically better than every deck – it would’ve won a YCS, which I haven’t seen happen at all in MR4.
    4. No-one favors cards because of their spammability – thats what people call degenerate. People like cards they grew up with – I for one love Red-Eyes. I watched duel monsters when I was younger and Joey was my favourite character. I played red-eyes with it’s support for a while and the deck did alright – but I still play other decks that are meta. Just because you find fun in stuff like Salamangreat doesn’t automatically mean you’re evil. Red-Eyes is still my favourite card, but I enjoy making other decks and playing meta a lot: that’s just how yugioh is

    I’m starting to see what you were trying to do with this deck list. Especially with the pendulums not only to spam the field to xzy, but also to use card like dragon pulse, dark magical circle, ebon high, ebon illusion to remove monsters from the field and if possible banish them along with cosmic cyclone to banish spells/traps. Magical dimension, Magician souls, magical navigation specials your Dark magician out along with skilled dark magician via spell counters. From what it looks like Gagaga Magician serves to help get your ebon high, illusion, and big eye out along with the various special summon mechanics in this deck along with called of the haunted which is interesting. I’m not trying to nitpick considering I see you and Mpr are going back and forth and a mod has got involved. With all things considered I believe that the one thing that’s not being considered especially seeing that it was only tested on cpu/bots is that if you were to play a real person wether on any of the various ygopro platforms handtraps/called by the grave, infinite impermanence etc is a real problem against this deck and potentially shuts it down.

    Yeah about that. Hand traps would work on certain occasions but this is not one of the factors because my opponent would have to have a good opening hand with Joyous in their hand at least as well as the combos they’re pulling off. I dueled a bot who tried to hit me with a Joyous but my XyZs spammed through the Pendulum summon because I had another Pend. Call in my hand. So to me it depends on what your opponent has or uses. But yeah this deck isn’t bad at all. Deck goes good with Legacy Of The Duelist instead of Dark Magical Circle in my honest opinion.

    Yeah Skilled Dark Magician is a great tech because of the Pendulum cards/Spell cards to bring out DM quicker from your Deck, Hand, or GY.

    Your go to XyZs would be Big Eye/Ebon Illusion/Odd Eyes Absolute/other Rank 7 monsters and your go to XyZ Rank 4s would be Castel/Exciton/other Rank 4 monsters.

    You can use Magician Souls to get rid of the Pendulums to draw 2 cards or use Souls to Special summon Dark Magician from the GY.

    Gagaga Magician can help SDM and/or Level 4s in this deck rank up into Rank 4 XyZs or it can rank up into Rank 7s with Xiangke/DM/Dragonpulse as it gets Normal summoned and/or Pendulum summoned.

    Dark Hole/Raigeki/Heavy Storm = Lightning Storm
    MST/Nobleman/Storm Duster = Cosmic Cyclone
    Monster Reborn/Ancient Rules = Dark Magic Veil
    Pot of Greed/Foolish Burial/MR = Magicians Souls

    There is nothing good about the current metagame. Good day. Every overpowered card should be limited to 1, then metagame would be fixed and there would be no complaints. Simple as that. My favorite ban list was April 2016, it looks like we need the April 2016 to be the current ban list if Konami wants to save YGO. The April 2016 banlist is the greatest list of all time.

    I also love the good old days of Final Countdown FTK, Chainburn and Shooting Quazar Spam. One of the most healthiest format’s to this day. Please don’t comment on stuff you have no idea about. Also if we use the April 2016 banlist, Zoodiacs – a deck that took up all of the 32 spots in top cut – would be legal. Teledad would be legal. All these tier 0 decks would still be legal. Good cards is a opinionated construct – whats good to you might be bad to me. Point being: there will always be little kids whining over the banlist no matter what they hit – thats just how it goes.

    I mean how KONAMI banned nearly overpowered cards or limited them to 1. Thats the type of ban list we need. Thats what they did before those cards even got by luckily. Aprils ban list was the most hated list of all time but it was definitely needed in times like these. That’s factual.

    Limit Cyberse, Orcust, Mines, and etc thats popular in the metagame to only 1. Whatever else is weaker in comparison can be unlimited.

    Omg this is why you don’t bring up this topic – because you know nothing about it. Stop using the word meta and acting like you know what that is. Cyberse is NOT meta. Mystic Mine is also NOT meta. There’s a reason cards are banned and have – stayed banned. If we unbanned cards in decks that are weaker then the current ones – those decks would become OP again. Also in that banlist konami didnt ban or limit all the overpowered cards – as Final Countdown FTK, Chain Burn, and Shooting Quazar Spam were really broken decks that dominated that format. If you unban zoo monsters because they’re not as strong as orcust right now (with their cards banned): they would become the most played deck again and then you’d go onto complain about how meta is bad and that konami should limit all good cards in zoodiac – which would literally reverse the meta making it back to how it is now. If konami instated what you are proposing – the meta would always be the same – Orcust are good, limit orcust and unban zoodiacs. Zoodiacs are good, limit zoodiacs unban orcust. Orcust is good etc. etc. Please do research or think about your arguement from any logical standpoint before putting it forward.

    Limit them all to 1! Problem solved. Duelist cannot use no more than 1 copy of each (overpowered/metagame deck/cards) which makes it harder to make a metagame play with. Konami did say keep the game fair so it sounds fair to me. Everybody hate 1 copy cards so that would also be legit.

    There’s a fine line between trying to make the game fair – and attempting to delete the metagame. All I need was: ‘harder to make a metagame’ to know that you are still forming your opinions on bias – and secondly enforcing them onto others. Limiting everything to 1 makes burn decks like mystic mine good – and 65% of all other yugioh decks unplayable. People would literally play like they did back in 2001. The reason yugioh is so interesting and unique is the playstyle. If people wanted to play a slow, turn based card game – they’d go over and play MTG or Hearthstone. Yugioh isnt supposed to be set 1 pass – it’s magic lies in the fact we CAN make amazing boards and we CAN utilize so many different cards.

    Overpowered cards does not make amazing boards, second, theres other search/draw options than your meta game vision, third YGO wouldnt be slow if the right overpowered cards were banned or limited to 1. Whats the point of a ban list if overpowered cards are utilized in multiple ways? YGO nearly fell off because of the meta game and its cheap tactics for a win. Its boring/annoying to see a person search through a entire deck within the first turn, you dont think thats overpowered? If YGO was like this all the time, then we might as well not have a ban list. You dont understand the point of a ban list, clearly, and that overpowered cards should always be banned or limited. Players are desperate and it shows by agreeing meta is good for YGO because players cannot come up with any good original combos without powerful cards. Remember… YGO IS ABOUT BALANCE. OH AND BTW every other card game is better than YGO at this point because it sunk so low. Rather the game be slow than a fast pace FTK before my turn starts. Utilize different many cards? How? If that was case, why are cards banned? Konami would simply leave them all off is the point.

    ftk = meta?
    searching through your whole deck = meta?
    Give me an example where an ftk deck became meta.
    ‘Metagame refers to the Deck(s) in current competitive use that are having the greatest success. Specifically, when players talk about the metagame (or ‘meta’, for short), they talk about which Deck styles and strategies are the most dominant in their area of play.’ Official definition. Find me an FTK deck or a deck that draws all your cards first turn thats currently meta.
