Yu-Gi-Oh/Deck Build


Hey Exo,

I came across a deck that I am wanting to try out and was wondering if you might be able to help me with it.  It's the new deck that has started coming around, the HAT deck.  I have seen it is quick and can be a real tough to beat when played right.  So i was wondering if you could help me out with building this deck.

Thanks for your help,

Standard HAT looks something like this at the moment:

3 Artifact Moraltach
3 Traptrix Myrmeleo
3 Fire Hand
3 Ice Hand
2 Traptrix Dionaea
1 Artifact Beagaltach

3 Upstart Goblin
3 Pot of Duality
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Soul Charge

3 Artifact Sanctum
2 Dimensional Prison
2 Traptrix Trap Hole Nightmare
1 Breakthrough Skill
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Bottomless Trap Hole
1 Time-Space Trap Hole
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Solemn Warning
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Wiretap

1 Gaia Dragon - the Thunder Charger
1 Constellar Pleiades
1 Number 61 - Volcasaurus
1 Number 50 - Blackship of Corn
2 Castel the Skylbaster Musketeer
1 Number 101 - Silent Honor ARK
1 Abyss Dweller
1 Gagaga Cowboy
1 Cairngorgon, Antiluminescent Knight
1 Lavalval Chain
1 Daigusto Emeral
1 Number 80 - Rhapsody in Beserk
1 Number 106 - Giant Hand
1 Evilswarm Exciton Knight

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.
