Deck Profile: Acid burn (DT-14)

Alrighty It seems that my acid burn deck was pretty well received but most of you have been interested in trying your hand at it before we get goldfish and not on DN. So I thought Id post a build that while may not be as consistent early on as the goldfish variant it is a little harder to stop mid-late game. For the sake of making things easier lets call the one with goldfish the fish varient and this one the beast variant since it capitalizes on Gishki Beast

For me both can easily set up your win condition, but why I prefer the fish one is because its not grave dependent and going into this next meta there is going to be tons of graveyard hate. But first lets look at the beast build

Ok the guys a 4 star water which works with Moray and your shark. Though he is a 1500 meaning he's open to BTH but the reason for beast is to utilize the effect that SS a 4 or lower Gishki from the grave on normal summon. So he can target another beast and also an Ariel that we will talk about in a sec. Often times you may set him so that he can do a turn stall and then be ready for the next beast to come out

Sadly though running 3 Beast is not enough gishki to justify the engine so if you were to look at the other 4 star (for shark) waters (shark and moray) gishiki's (beast targets) you will find Gishki Ariel

So heres a cool one its a flip effect monster that on flip will search a gishki. Meaning you will have a beast now in hand with a gishki in the grave to go right into shark. You really gotta be careful though because its easy to read a set Ariel. So It may be beneficial to adjust your main or side deck to take into account your meta, fissure/macro hurts as does the destruction abilities of inzektors and agents (In which case Giski Avance may work better).

SO heres the build to mess with some with the added Gishkis

Other fun cards if you dont like the Gishki's

Cloudians cant be destroyed by battle so are good ones to stall for a turn Dragon can also be SS by removing a cloudian so it opens up some plays

This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card can only beSpecial Summoned by removing 1 WATER monster in your Graveyardfrom play. During each of your opponent's Standby Phases, you can change the battle position of 1 of your opponent's face-up Monster Cards. Once changed, the monster must remain in this position for the rest of the turn.

Spirit is cool in that in this deck its easy enough to ss her out like Cloudian Storm dragon it sucks having Monsters that can not be normal or ss unless by special conditions. The blow of this is cushioned by 3 morays but still its not optimum

Those familiar with bubble beat can see where this is going, creature swap and mystic box are both normals so can be set and still used that turn. The monster count is a little high to really make this work but again moray can aid in getting it to work. being able to add a rota too is nice especiall since you can then think about using Skull mariner as a target for Rabbit to go into Blade Armor or Excaliber

Its a funny one if theres a field of monsters and this guy is destroyed  by battle you can keep summoning another out for the cost of 800 LP. SO hes a good stall and if you time it right you can end thier attack phase with your last face up panda so you can normal into a level 4 water and go into shark

Nimbles: The Forgotten City Combo

Ok Im probably still one of the few ppl that still morn the passing of our dearly departed substitoad. Every set I look for some kind of card that will let me whip out the froggies and let them Des Croak one more time. (no I dont count frog monarch as a frog deck :P )

With this new set there is huge support for water hijinx that is not mermaid/atlantian related and one of these cards is Nimble Angler

The card is the 3rd of water type nimble cards (Sunfish and Manta being the other 2) so the potential to be able to use his effect more than just once in a water based deck makes it a usable card. And what better guy to get him discarded than work horse of all frogs Swap Frog.

The combo though wont be live till we get the Ouroboros Duel Terminal cards in what ever hidden arsonal that is. In that set we get Constellar Ptolemys Messier 7

Level 6 monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using 1 face-up "ConstellarXyz Monster you control as the Xyz Material, except "Constellar Ptolemys Messier 7". (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials of this card.) You cannot activate this card's effect the turn youSpecial Summon this card this way. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 monster on the field or in either player's Graveyardreturn it to the hand.

So right about now you may be asking how the fuck do you make a grade 6 xyz from all those little level 2 frogs and Nimbles (with out fishborg that is) So insteps another new card from ABYR

So basically if you have a level 2 monster out than you need 4 more levels to make it a 6. 2+4=6 so we need 4 level 2 monsters and we can make 2 grade 6 xyzs. Fun right? Wait go re-read Messier see that part about returning a monster? and if we have 2 messiers we get 2 monsters... so we all know what swap can do with him and another monster in hand... OTKs :))))

combo needs city in play and a swap and angler in hand

discard angler to SS swap, send a ronin, bring out 2 nimbels

Return swap to hand congrats you can extra normal summon a frog monster this turn

normal swap send a swap to the grave (could be a dupe or freeborn too)

remove a frog to SS Ronin. Yeayyyyy 4 level 2s with city in play makes em all
level 6 monsters

4 level 6s can make 2 messiers 

send the swap as material to return an angler

Send a ronin to return a swap

Do it again. SS Swap with angler, send a swap to grave and SS 2 more nimbles

swap sent ronin with the 2nd frog summon

SS Ronin by removing swap

make a second Phoenix and detatch for their effects

Im actually an ass, I mistyped and added an extra 1900 but Im too lazy
to go into photoshop and fix it now, you get the idea
The other thing is that you could go into 2 Gaia Dragons
if your opponent has some defense position monsters

Deck Profile: Acid Burn

I've been playing with an obscene amount of decks lately, my watts got their seahorse as well as support for a bunch of my other fun deck, but most notably Fish and Dragunities which Ill be posting soon as well as some Infernity stuff. But to kick off all the festivities is one of the most trollish decks Ive ever ran. Bahamut Burn

It revolves around one of my more favorite cards from ABYR Bahamut Shark

At first I was like huh??? Then I checked out Mermail Abysstrite and I got it... but I looked up a list of all the other targets and I saw this guy Acid Golem

My first thought was OMG thats horrible with no material I not only cant attack but I cant special summon and take 2000 each turn WHY THE HELL WOULD I EVER DO THAT??

Well because with creature swap or Mystic Box it becomes the most trollish card in yugioh

What if you could basically lock the field down and send this guy to your opponents side. The only way to really play around it is to blow the guy up or tribute over him. SO heres the build

OK So first things first whats the play?

With a creature on your opponents side and rabbit and creature swap in hand you summon rabbit, banish the furball for 2 level 4 normal monsters, XYZ for Bahamut Shark, discard a matierial for Acid then creature swap him for your opponents monster. 

Unlike most other one trick pony troll decks this one is set up to have that as not the only win condition.  Morey of Greed lets you send those pesky vanillas back to the deck where they belong and Tinplate also makes good use of the vanillas you draw into as well.

When this card is Normal Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 Levelmonster from your hand.

I know right!!!! Broke sauce. If you draw into Kabazauls and this guy you can go right into a grade 4 xyz... maybe not Dolka or Laggia but hell it beats normaling the Kabazuals right?

You will also notice that TGU and sangan are here as well, you can grab you banished rabbit for more hijinx with TGU to Levier plays and sangan puts in that searching work. 

If something was missing from the deck that I may change is the lack of Pot of Avarice, the way the deck runs you can keep a constant flow of grad 4s coming  out and that recycling is probably way needed.


Heres the deal with hydro hes a 1600 attack level 4 water dinosaur. He's Guiaiba's weaker younger brother, But heres where he excels. When hes not needed you can send him away with Moray to use later. If you can use him now then break him out and get that effect of for a second one. Dino means Laggia and Dolka, Water 4 means Shark for your acid plays. Hes the reason why theres 3 lances in the build.

The key to running this deck effectively is gonna be backing up your Acid plays with some of that sweet dino action Laggia and Dolka and even in the right moment going into a gagaga cowboy for that little 800 push

Any deck that tribute summons... Chaos Dragons, Monarchs, That one lonely puddingcess :)
so in the side you should consider.
Mask of Restrict solves half the problems which stem from it being tributed away
Decks that have a lot of destruction are a problem as well, (decks that dont need to special summon to do it and can target cards on their sides, Like Inzektors (Shadow Imprisoning Mirror) or ones that can spam into Scrap Dragon (not that huge of a deal since you should be able to stop a lot of this with the right back row that you already main)
