QUESTION: Can you look over my inzektor deck and tell me to make any changes, thanks!


Monsters 21

Inzektor Centipede*3
Inzektor Dragonfly*1
Inzektor Hornet*1
Inzektor Hopper*1
Inzektor Giga-Mantis*2
Inzektor Ladybug*3
Card Trooper*2
Spirit Reaper*2
Sangan*1
Gorz*1
Effect Veiler*1
Dark armed dragon*1
Mystic Tomato*2

Spells 13

Dark hole*1
Monster reborn*1
Heavy Storm*1
Mst*3
Allure of darkness*1
Duality*2
Inzektor Sword- zektkaliber*2
Foolish Burial*1
Forbidden Lance*1

Traps 9

Call of the Haunted*3
Threatening Roar*2
Solemn Warning*1
Solemn Judgment*1
Bottomless Trap hole*2

ANSWER: Not much wrong with this really, other than that you need to decide which list you're playing really  (Should be 2 Warning for Sept 2012, No Sangan for March 2013)

I'd drop the Bottomless for Torrential, and add in the Second Effect Veiler over the Sangan for March 1st.

Currently you're at 43 cards, so I'd drop these to go to 40:

1 Inzektor Giga-Mantis (This is searchable, one is enough)
2 Mystic Tomato (These just aren't that good anymore without Sangan to fetch...)

Hope that helps.

QUESTION: Hey, can you tell me your reasoning behind putting torrentials over bottomless trap holes? Thanks!

Answer
Quite simply put, it's because Torrential is a superior card.

Bottomless Trap Hole can't hit monsters like Dragonfly, Deep Sea Diva and Atlantean Marksman, and is only really good when you're already on top of the game, whereas Torrential can be used to Stabilize an unfavourable field.

Torrential's just a more versatile card than Bottomless, which is what you need when going into a new format.

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.
