Yu-Gi-Oh/burn deck list


hi i was wanting to build a burn deck that is playable in tournaments and is competetive but i do not know what to add in could you give me a deck list to run and perhaps maybe some tips thank you much appreciated

I'll warn you now that burn is one of those decks that doesn't exactly help you make friends...

There are a number of ways to go about it though:
-You can try to Stall long enough to beat your opponent with Lava Golem, Stealth Bird and/or Wave Motion Cannon.
-You can play Chain Strike Burn, and deal 1500-2000 points of damage per turn while drawing cards to try and find more burn.
-Or you can just go for Bubble Burn, which is the all or nothing "All my cards are burn cards, can you kill me before I draw enough of them" deck.

Chain Strike Burn is the clear best of the 3, but the options are there.

Have a think about which of these you're interested in playing, and let me know which one to build in a follow-up question.

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.
