Lightsworn Deck

X-Sabers, Six Samurai, etc… are just a couple of very powerful Yugioh meta decks, but a very ovverated Yugioh meta deck is the Lightsworn deck and I will explain my opinion.

X-Sabers, Six Samurai, etc… are just a couple of very powerful Meta decks. The term ‘Meta’ refers to a group of decks that dominate play in a certain areas. Other Meta decks you have probably heard of are Blackwings, Gladiator Beasts, and Lightsworns. Now, I have dueled against several Lightsworn decks and usually defeat them. For those who don’t know, the primary goal of a Lightsworn is to mill several cards from your deck in order to summon Judgement Dragon, which requires four Lightsworn monsters in the graveyard to be summoned. However, though Judgement Dragon is strong, should it truly make Lightsworn decks rank highly among duelists?

Before you pro-Lightsworn readers start hounding me, here is my argument: Lightsworn decks revolve around summoning a monster who can be destroyed by a card effect at anytime. Sure you may have Dark Bribe or Solemn Warning/Judgement set, but a simple Dark Hole or a Lightning Vortex can eradicate it. Now, I know that logic applies to many monsters, like Dark Armed Dragon and Herald of Perfection, two monsters that are equally as powerful as Judgement Dragon. However, in DAD’s case, it doesn’t have a deck that revolves around specifically summoning itself (Tele-DAD was more about quick synchro summoning, with DAD as a key tool to do so). In Herald’s case, all good Perfection decks either have Royal Decree to negate Trap Holes and/or have several Herald-of-Light monsters that can negate Trap Holes/Solemns as well.

Another bad thing about Lightsworns is that they mill so much in order to bring out Judgement Dragon. If you summon Judgement Dragon and it gets negated, you just lost half your deck trying to futilely play it. I think Lightsworn decks are good, but I just don’t think they deserve the high-level status they have. What are your guys’ views?

Yugioh Dueling Network

Yugioh Dueling Network is essentially the same the thing as Yugioh Network in the sense that they are both dueling sites. However, Dueling Network is a much superior site: it is faster, the graphics are superior, and its brighter colors make the dueling experience much more interesting. Here are some aspects of Dueling Network that are better/worse than Yugioh Network:

The Good:

Like I mentioned above, Dueling Network has a much better color scheme. Plus, the graphics are better and as a result, you are more inclined to duel. Unlike Yugioh Network, Dueling Network does not have a lot of foreigners, so it’s easier to relay messages to your opponents (who are predominately speak English).

The Bad:

It is so hard to find a duel slot! This is especially true if your rank is higher, as lower ranking opponent’s will try stay clear from your path. The only quick way to find a duel is to host your own, which still takes about five-ten minutes.

I strongly recommend you guys to get an account and when you do, add me as a friend: spanther96. To watch a Dueling Network video, you can either go watch this duel between a Herald deck and a Elemental Hero deck or between a X-Saber deck and a Six Samurai deck.

Herald of Perfection VS. Elemental Hero

Yes, the guy quit halfway through the duel… but like I said in the video, it didn’t matter because I would have won. With Herald of Perfection and Tethys the Goddess on my field, I would have smashed any combo he created. By discarding one fairy from your hand, Herald of Perfection negates the activation of a trap, spell, or monster effect. I had three fairies at hand, plus I had Tethys on my field: if I drew a fairy monster that turn, she allows me to draw another card. She helps me stack my hand with fairies, allowing Herald of Perfection to constantly negate and destroy my opponent’s card effects. With those monsters already on my field, with a combined attack of 4200 attack points, my opponent would have been fried in two turns at most.

What were your guys reflection on the duel? Could I have utilized Herald better? What were some of the strengths and weaknesses of my Herald of Perfection deck?
