    please help me with a exodia deck

    Post by houndthrow12345 on Wed Jan 28, 2015 8:57 am

    Okay so here is my exodia deck right now i'm having a major issue with it while most people might not see it as a problem i do my problem is my deck has 42 cards i believe that a perfect exodia deck must have 40 cards and no more my problem is i don't know what to take out and i also plan on throwing in if i have room to i plan on adding defense draw, swift scarecrow, zero gardna, and another battle fader so i need to know if there is anything i can take out to throw in cards that can help protect me from damage while also helping me draw out exodia also please note that i don't quite like adding exodia from my deck straight to my hand by card effects i prefer to draw him out but if you think it might help i could try it

    You ever try older "chance draw" cards like Crystal Seer? You may have to send 1 to bottom of deck but you can still pick from 2, and with cards like Card Trader it's down side is lowered. Personally I enjoy both.

    Literally just stock it full of stall and draw cards, I made an exodia deck in about 20 minutes and I went undefeated with it 3-0 then deleted it because I didn't really like playing exodia, the deck I made originally was a lot easier and a lot more trolly simply because of the fact that one day of peace was at 3

    well i almost went undefeated at my local tournament until i got to the 2nd to last round and lost only because of burning abyss my opponent kept bringing out virgil and kept jumping my cyber back to my deck and forceing me to reshuffle i might have one if i was able to bring out a battle fader but i didnt have one in my hand when they otk'd me so is there any thing i might be able to put in a side deck that might help me against burning abyss or any cards that prevent me from drawing? honestly the only thing im worried about with burning abyss is virgil and thats basically it

    Easiest way to counter BA, is macro cosmos, or d fissure. In this format it's literally a win condition that's why its at 1 each, or vanity. I love watching BA players squirm at the sight of a macro cosmos

    why do you have Blue Eyes in there? and put dark world dealings in there Draw a card discard a card. and put embassy of the after life. get one lv 3 or lower normal type monsters from your deck to your hand. makes getting the limbs easier

    Remove
    Monsters (11)
    -3 Blue-Eyes White Dragon
    -2 Cyber Valley
    -3 Royal Magical Library
    -3 The White Stone of Legend

    Spells (10)
    -2 Card Trader
    -3 Cards of Consonance
    -2 Swords of Revealing Light
    -3 Trade-In

    Traps (5)
    -2 Transmigration Prophecy
    -3 Waboku

    Total: -26

    Add
    Monsters (14)
    +1 Battle Fader
    +3 Blue Dragon Summoner
    +3 Cardcar D
    +1 Emissary of the Afterlife
    +3 Maxx C (can side instead if ppl don't swarm much in your area)
    +3 Swift Scarecrow

    Spells (6)
    +1 Dark Eruption
    +1 Dark Factory of Mass Production
    +3 Dark World Dealings
    +1 Pot of Duality
    +1 Upstart Goblin

    Traps (4)
    +1 Jar of Greed
    +3 Threatening Roar
    *+3 Reckless Greed (Only if you wanted to side Maxx C)

    Total: +24 (Makes the deck 40 cards)

    Side Deck:
    +x Barrel Behind the Door (However many you feel is necessary, but include at least 1.)
    +2 Dark Hole
    +1 Torrential Tribute

    If you win rock-paper-scissors, then go first.  This gives you time to set Jar of Greed and Reckless Greed before they can be MST'd.

    Explanation

    Spoiler:
    From personal experience, The White Stone of Legend+Cards of Consonance+Blue-Eyes+Trade-In combo is fun, but incredibly inconsistent.  I've tried Royal Magical Library, but it only really works in OTK builds.

    Another Battle Fader wouldn't hurt.  Furthermore, I'd run Swift Scarecrow over Cyber Valley due to the increasing usage of Fiendish Chain and Breakthrough Skill.  Again, running at 3 would be nice for the extra stall.

    Emissary of the Afterlife is the old school Exodia search card, but there's a better searcher now.  Run it at 1.  Blue Dragon Summoner does the same thing as Emissary but far more consistently, so toss 3 in.

    Cardcar D and Maxx C are great generic draws.  However, if you play against people that don't Special Summon then Maxx C is a dead draw.  You may Side it instead of Maining.


    As the others said, you should run Dark World Dealings (at 3).  Upstart at 3 wouldn't hurt either.

    Transmigration Prophecy is slow.  For faster alternatives use 1 Dark Eruption to pull Exodia and 1 Dark Factory of Mass Production to pull the limbs.

    Run Pot of Duality at 3 for more drawing.  Tis a bit slower since you can only use 1 a turn, but I was running out of generic draw cards to add.

    Card Trader is slow and can be MST'd.  Same thing with Swords.  Best to take em out.

    Jar of Greed is another generic draw card added because I couldn't think of any better alternatives.  Some may mention Defense Draw, but that relies on your opponent attacking.  Gotta prepare for other win condition decks and those evil burns.

    Run 3 Reckless Greed if you decide to side Maxx C.  Keep in mind that you should wait to activate this card until you have all 3 Set or are forced to do so.

    I'd run Threatening Roar over Waboku.  This way you can prevent your opponent's attacks even if they try to MST your Set.

    I made a mention of it earlier, but this deck is quite weak against decks that don't rely on attacking to win.  The meta-game is all about swarming for victory now, so that normally wouldn't be a problem.  Regardless, side some anti-burn cards just in case - the most standard is Barrel Behind the Door.  Side Dark Hole and/or Torrential Tribute so you can send Blue Dragon Summoner to the grave.

    Imperial Iron Wall is a great Side Deck card.  Really shouldn't be Mained under normal circumstances in any deck except ones that abuse it - such as the old Quillbolt+Plague+Librarian combo.

    Scrubbed Raid can work, but only if you made the Blue Dragon Summoner edit.  Those cards work great together.  You normally won't have many cards on the field, so it is better to avoid using that.  Battle Fader and Swift Scarecrow are quite reliable.

    Btw, did you make any of the edits I mentioned?
