UPDATE: SEE THE POST SEPTEMBER 2011 BAN LIST DECK HERE: Six Samurai Deck
All I can say is WOW! Even getting hit hard with the recent ban list, this deck still has staying power. As with the last YCS, the winner and still reigning champion of decks is…..Legendary Six Samurai. It was such a dominating deck in this tournament that it took last YCS champion to a top 8 spot too.
Congrats to 1st time YCS winner, Sean Coovert, for his dominating a field of over 1000 people with his six samurai deck. He had an epic battle in the finals against a not so new deck, Fish. Since the release of Storm of Ragnarok’s six samurai’s, Legendary Six Samurai – Kageki, Kagemusha of the Six Samurai, Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan, Shien’s Smoke Signal, Musakani Magatama, and Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En, he was able to do what most six samurai players have been doing for the past month….

Yes the deck lost the ability to get the super nuts first turn draw. You know the multiple gate ways with possible multiple Six Samurai United. Then blast the field with multiple 2100 and 2500 attackers with some set back row for protection. I remember that as if it was just a couple of days ago. Wait it was just a couple of days ago.
Well the deck may not get the super nuts draw anymore. But it still has the ability to get the nuts still. You just have to know how to play the deck more effiently. You now have to use those “United” to draw cards and not just a bushudo counter place holder. Also when you do draw READ THE FULL ARTICLE >>
Knowing how to play Yu-Gi-Oh well doesn’t mean that you will play Yu-Gi-Oh well. Emotions negatively affect many players, conceivably including you. What many fail to realize is that you also must train your mind to play well.
You need to discipline your mind to automatically apply Yu-Gi concepts that are related to the current situation in a game. If you automatically and unthinkingly apply basic concepts, you can use more of your mental energy for strategic issues, such as adjusting to specific players. Your decisions will then become more accurate, which will READ THE FULL ARTICLE >>
