Yu-Gi-Oh/a photon deck build for the new 2013 cards


Hi i recently bought a pack of cards and got some of the new photon cards and heard they make a pretty strong deck. It would be greatly appreciated if you can help build me a deck around most of the newer photon cards.

The new Photons appear to be pushing the Deck towards being a Rank 5 Engine...
I'm assuming you want Photon and not Galaxy, since those are 2 distinctly different decks.

1 Photon Slasher
3 Photon Thrasher
3 Photon Satellite
3 Orbital 7
3 Photon Lizard
2 Card Trooper
1 Honest

3 Message in a Bottle
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 Accellight
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Heavy Storm
1 Reinforcement of the Army
1 Mind Control

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Dimensional Prison
2 Fiendish Chain
1 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Starlight Road

Your Extra deck should contain copies of cards like "Starliege Paladynamo", "Number 61 - Volcasaurus", "Tiras, Keeper of Genesis", "Gaia Dragon the Thunder Charger" and the like.

Give that 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.
