Yu-Gi-Oh/Samurai warlords modifications


Hello I'd like to build a six samurai deck with its base being the samurai warlords structure deck and i can buy any additional cards you would recommend that did not come in the structure deck. I'd like it to fit mainly in with the archetype of the six samurai, legendary six samurai, and shein archetype. I'd like it to be in the traditional format. Thank you for your time.

The issue you're going to have here is that Six Samurai decks like cards in Triplicate - 3 copies of them. Which means you need to start with 3 Structure Decks.

In addition, Six Samurai Extra Decks are VERY Expensive, as they require multiple Naturia Synchro monsters in addition to the Standard Synchro/Xyz line.

There's also the fact that there are NO traditional format staple cards in the Structure, cards like Pot of Greed, Graceful Charity and the like aren't featured nowadays since they've been banned for years.

This is what Traditional Format Samurai looks like :

Hmmmm, this isn't going to look much like the Advanced Format one...

If you open Gateway here, the game is likely to be over that turn:

3 Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan
3 Kagemusha of the Six Samurai
2 Legendary Six Samurai - Kageki
2 Elder of the Six Samurai
1 Grandmaster of the Six Samurai
1 Hand of the Six Samurai

1 Pot of Greed
1 Graceful Charity
1 Change of Heart
1 Snatch Steal
1 Delinquent Duo
1 Monster Reborn
1 Premature Burial
1 Gateway of the Six
3 Six Samurai United
3 Upstart Goblin
2 Shien's Smoke Signal
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Raigeki
1 Harpie's Feather Duster
1 Heavy Storm
1 Last Will

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Solemn Warning
1 Ring of Destruction
1 Imperial Order
1 Royal Oppression

Which will likely cost you a lot of Time and money to assemble. By comparison, this is the Advanced format version:

3 Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan
3 Kagemusha of the Six Samurai
2 Legendary Six Samurai - Kageki
2 Elder of the Six Samurai
2 Grandmaster of the Six Samurai
1 Hand of the Six Samurai
1 Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi

3 Six Samurai United
3 Asceticism of the Six Samurai
2 Shien’s Smoke Signal
2 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Gateway Of The Six
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Heavy Storm
1 Monster Reborn

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Compulsory Evacuation Device
2 Dimensional Prison
2 Solemn Warning
2 Muskani Magatama
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Double-Edged Sword Technique

Which costs considerably less, and uses cards that are readily available to most players.
Have a look at both lists, and see which you like better, then give them a go.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of £4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
