Juan Morales Reborn Tengu Genex Ally Birdman 2011 YCS Orlando Second Place Deck Review

Genex Ally Birdman YuGiOh Card GameI may sound like I’m repeating myself here but I’m loving this format. There still is no supreme deck that has taken over the format. As with past YCS’s there have been several new and innovating decks topping. The winner, Traviis Massengale, played a Zombie Plant Choas Reanimator Deck. While the second place, Juan Morales, played a Reborn Tengu Genex Ally Birdman deck. How innovating and new is that?

His deck was really a control deck that got many +1s with all it’s combos. He played the latest released reborn tengu. I don’t have to say anything more about this card. But you should already the answer to this question, Is Reborn Tengu Really That Good Of A Card?

He also played his MVP of the deck Genex Ally Birdman. This card not only allowed him to gain massive +1s by reusing his search monsters but also allowed him to have a great level 3 tuner. Here was one of his amazing combos: normal summon reborn tengu then special summon birdman by returning tengu, special summon another tengu from your deck. Synchro summon a level 7, black rose dragon, destroy the field and get the last tengu from your deck to the field. Can you say mucho control play there…

He also used the gravekeeper’s control theme in his deck. He played the Gravekeeper’s Spy and Gravekeeper’s Descendant to control the field. Adding birdman to this allowed Juan to reuse the spy to get another +1 plus have access to Arcanite Magician. More control and we just only spoke about 4 cards.

He also added, what seems to be common now, the reusable tuner engine. Cards as Plaguespreader Zombie and Glow-Up Bulb. He put in a slash of lightsworns, Ryko Lightsworn Hunter and Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress.

With so many +1s from his creatures, he was bound to draw into his many search spells. Which of course allowed him to draw into other search monsters. He needed to get a level on tuner, he used One for One. After using all his monster for synchro summoning, he would put them back in his deck again with Pot of Avarice. And of course he used the top draw card in the game now, Pot Of Duality. What a great mix of spells and monsters.

With so many control monsters he didn’t really need to many controlling traps. He just ran 3 trap cards. The master controlling traps of, Solemn Warning and Solemn Judgment.
