This deck uses the thunders floodgates to lock your opponents plays, also it run thunder dragon matrix, hawk and fusion, for attack boost and to summon titan. I also use mystic mine to stall my opponent while I build my field, as well solemns to disrupt my opponents plays. I use ties of the brethren to put more floodgates on the field, and terminal world/anti-spell fragrance to help with the lockdown.

    The best way to play the thunder floodgates is using the hunder family

    I agree, thats why I have made many thunder family decks, but this time I tryed a different approach using mystic mine and thunder dragons as anti meta support.

    Surprise, this might come as a shock but jinzo is exactly what you’ll need

    Well if they go first and have omni negates, then yeah, otherwise, I dont think so, but yeah most of them will have omni negates. Control decks may have hard times against this deck though.

    Well jinzo is the best counter to traps, but do not fit this deck, as the purpose of this deck is to use thunder floodgates, also I have no way to special jinzo so it will be a brick most of times.

    Ever read the newish support for him?
    Jinzo is pretty consistent now and also can play lots of monster floodgates in it (denko sekka, vanity’s ruler, inspector boarder, etc) and layers protection. We’re also talking about a trap heavy meta in all cases

    Well jinzo has supports, but it doesnt fit the purpose of this deck, using the thunder floodgates + mystic mine. Also, I dont see this meta being trap heavy, the only meta decks that use a good number of traps are eldlich and vw, magikey does have traps but its not trap heavy and didnt como to tcg yet, only in ygopro.

    Oh ok, so could you show me an example of a good anti meta jinzo deck then? Also is there a way to lock the other mechanics in a jinzo deck with minimal consistency?, Like a way to special, lets say, spell canceller, or bring inspector boarder or majesty/vanity fiend?

    Im actually impressed, I just didnt undertand why linkuriboh and omega. Other than that seens a good anti-meta deck, however, I must say that it focuses too much on shut down and interacting with trap cards and yes it does have a way to special spell canceller but requires setup and is only from your hand or gy, so you will have to draw it beforehand, not to mention your deck relies too much on spells for consistency and spell canceller may shut down your own plays. As for boarder and sekka, they are ok for your normal summon, boarder however may shut down your monsters effects so I would side him against decks that abuses of monster effects. So if I had to choose which deck to use between mine and yours, i would choose yours if i want more consistency and firepower, but i would choose mine if the purpose is to shutdown and control my opponents plays, the main reason is that ties of the brethren helps my deck alot and metaverse + demise of the land help getting mystic mine on the field.

    there is no reason to ever side boarder. the point of playing it is because the meta is monster effects. besides most of the monsters dont even activate

    Its true that in meta, monster effects is frequent, however monster effects are frequent in this jinzo deck as well, thats why I suggested to side boarder, cause if you summon it in your first turn, you wont be able to summon yyour other floodgates consistently.

    You know that it will not always be like that right? Sometimes you summon canceller and the opponent out your other floodgates or put boss monsters on the field, in this case, you will lock your own plays, but yeah, generally you will activate your spells before summoning canceller, I just said that cause this jinzo deck relies too much on spells for consistency and canceller shut down all spells.

    You ignored my points, also jinzo support monsters all activates, only flodgates like boarder, sekka, canceller and jinzo do not activate, the others activates.

    Boarder and Jinzo are the only cards that see any play in that list, and even then the play they see is very niche.

    The point is to turbo out jinzo and then protect it, it’s usually normal boarder then special summon jinzo with an effect
    Spell canceler is rarely going to backfire by the way

    Still many of the supports to summon jinzo are on the monster effects, so you will have hard time summoning jinzo after summoning boarder in your first turn. As for spell canceller, if used wisely, it can work, just saying that it require too much setup and those setups are mostly spells, which spell canceller shuts down, so use it wisely, otherwise it will harm your strategy, not to mention that if you cant setup, this card is essetially a brick in your hand.

    Yes, but theyre not completely for consistency, so just like you can activate your spells before canceller, i can activate my spells before rod or fragrance, also if you look well, the number of monsters, spells and traps are almost the same, that was done on purpose, so if one of the types are locked, I can still use the other 2, and generally when I lock 2 or more types, Im already on advantage or Im buying time with mystic mine.

    Know what, I’ll just simplify it, if you play the deck properly and you’re smart with it then floodgate jinzo (that’s what I call it) can be very good

    I think youre misunderstanding the conversation. Im not playing spell canceller, but amorphage do it in his jinzo deck. The context is that he said that jinzo could be a good anti meta deck, then after a lil bit of discution, I was thinking he was saying me to include jinzo in my deck, but he wasnt, then I asked him if he could show me an example of a good anti meta jinzo deck that could also lock other mechanichs and I mentioned spell canceller and asked if there was a way to summon him minimally consistently in that jinzo deck. Then he showed me his deck, and I said that I was impressed, but at the same time I notice some flaws that could harm the deck strategy, and thats started the discussion about boarder and canceller. So in short, when we were talking about boarder and cancelled, it was not about my deck (aka the main deck of the post), but amorphages jinzo deck.

    The guy who said to use Jinzo doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The meta is largely composed of monster effects, negations and special summons from the graveyard. Recoverability is the most important asset. The closest thing you will find to a non-archetype anti-meta deck is Mystic Mine. People hate mystic mine for a reason because it is a card that’s even better than Skill Drain, which used to be a favorite anti-meta card long ago. Mystic Mine decks do work against meta. Adding cards like Summon Limit, TCBOO, etc. help as floodgates, but anti-meta is too slow without an engine. Archetypes offer that engine because they have the ability to search for other cards. This creates synergy. An anti-meta deck instead is disconnected and has to rely on generic draw cards like the Pot cards.

    Thus, there really isn’t “pure” anti-meta anymore. Rather, everyone is using anti-meta strategies in side decks of meta decks. You have subterror decks that main 3 Summon Limits.

    I agree that mystic mine is favorite to play anti-meta decks. However, I think this jinzo deck may work sometimes, even if some cards hurt the deck strategy. Summon limit is probably a very good suggestion, but tcboo is not for this deck that has only thunder types. Youre totally right about archetypes having consistency, but even if anti-meta is not as consistent as archetypes, they can still work. And yeah, there isnt much pure ant-meta anymore, many decks side or even main generic techs that are good against the meta.
