Yu-Gi-Oh/Upgrade deck


Hi I know that you already answered this question but I gave you a wrong email for the first time so I was wondering if you could forward that answer back to me if you can. Sorry for the trouble.


I was wondering if you could improve and rate this deck in the advanced format. I am trying to make a spellcaster counter type of deck.

3x night's end sorcerer
2x blackwind gale the whirlwind
2x defender the magical knight
3x break the magical warrior
3x Skilled dark magician
1x morphing jar
3x crusader of endymion
1x alchemist of black spells
1x magician's valkyria
1x chaos sorcerer
1x old vindictive magician
1x kycoo the ghost destroyer
3x Magical exemplar
1x summoner monk

Spell cards
2x spell power grasp
2x magical citadel of endymion
1x swords of revealing light
2x spellbook of wisdom
2x mystical space typhoon
1x dark eruption
3x magical dimension
1x mystic box
1x secret village of the spellcasters
1x secret sanctuary of the spellcasters
1x giant trunade
1x dark hole
1x book of moon

Trap cards
1x bottomless trap hole
1x solemn warning
1x torrential tribute
1x black horn of heaven
1x magic cylinder
1x mirror force

1x gaia knight the force of earth
1x goyo guardian
1x T.G. Librarian
1x arcanite magician
1x tempest magician
1x brionac dragon of the ice barrier
1x stardust dragon
1x ancient fairy dragon
1x Colossal fighter
1x explosive magician

1x slacker magician

Spellcaster decks I see always seem to playing a large number of monsters that aren't very good simply because they're spellcasters. That's always puzzled me since there are so many good spellcaster-type monsters...
I'd also point out that Giant Trunade has been Forbidden for quite a while now, as has Brionac.

I'd fix that to look like this:

3 Breaker the Magical Warrior
3 Defender the Magical Knight
2 Chaos Sorcerer
2 Magical Exemplar
2 Apprentice Magician
2 Summoner Monk
2 Night's End Sorcerer
1 Magician of Faith
1 Crystal Seer
1 Old Vindictive Magician

3 Upstart Goblin
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 Magical Citadel of Endymion
2 Instant Fusion
1 Book of Moon
1 Soul Charge
1 Allure of Darkness
1 Raigeki

2 Breakthrough Skill
2 Dimensional Prison
1 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Solemn Warning

1 Scrap Dragon
1 Crimson Blader
2 Arcanite Magician
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Tempest Magician
1 Goyo Guardian
1 HTS Psyhemuth
1 Abyss Dweller
1 Castel the Skyblaster Musketeer
1 Evilswarm Exciton Knight
1 Slacker Magician
2 Musician King

I'd give that a go, see what you think.

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.
