How do you decide which deck is right for you? I've tried almost everything, Crystal Beasts, Dark Worlds, Glad Beasts, Lightsworns, Zombies, Batteryman, Blackwings. None of them seem right for me...i cant decide what my own style is.

You must look deep in your heart. The answer is there... Nah, I'm joking. Use what you know. What can you win with, what are best at. Are you more aggressive, or more defensive. You see, I'm more a old engine kind of guy, so my style is slow to start, but builds up to wipe my opponent out. I rely more on defense and faith until I build up an attack to wipe my opponent out in the fewest blows possible. Look at the style of your old decks. Were they offense based, defense based, stalling, discarding, effect damage, etc. Use what you know and what's comfortable. What do you like to use the most?

For me, I choose my decks by reading the effects of cards in the archetype and if I like the effects of most of the cards, I make it. Falzar FZ 05:03, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

I just pick a card I like, look for cards that work with that one and build a deck based off of that. --Blue (Talk) 05:09, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

for me, i play the 'noober' version of tele DAD, and it really suits me. its a deck which has speed, power, control and a semi-toolbox. i prefer decks which i can tap into the cards i need as fast as possible. maybe instead of trying archetypes, you could try a mixture of cards. monarchs, tuners, synchros, destruction cards can easily form a deck on its own. using archetypes, most of your power will come from that certain archetype, and once a card comes out that counters that archetype, there it goes (: 12:59, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Use what you have fun with. If you enjoy relentlessly attacking, go with a deck that has beatdown. If you're more of a careful player, use cards that can prevent your opponent from doing what they want, a control style. If you don't want to risk battle, and want complete defense, throw some Burn cards in and some stall. Remember, if you truly enjoy playing the deck, that's your style.--Akiza Izayoi 23:37, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

For me, I rather to enjoy the duel, in any way, so I created "Nature Deck", which base on most of manga hero and Neos (Elemental Hero Neos and Neo-Spacians) combine with Synchro (which is second generation of this deck). But for serious game, I would using Assault Mode Dragon Deck (which is the one I am posting now) to give my opponent some pressure on the line of life. But I don't using Assault Mode deck for offense base, it's also very flexible with Synchro Summon, as I can summon various kind of Synchro Monster, such as Brionac, Stardust Dragon, Colossal Fighter, ever Iron Chain Dragon at any time. But at very rarely minute, I would summon Colossal Fighter, Red Dragon Archfiend, and Thought Ruler Archfiend at right time to prevent my opponent from get what they want. --FredCat100 23:42, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

I like to win, but I like to have fun with the duel more than anything. So I try to build as creative a deck as possible, and I play with it even if its not too great. Right now I use a beast deck with Moja, Beast Striker and King of Beasts along with Naturia Synchros, or a Koa'ki Meiru deck with absolutely no Synchros at all, but a good Anti-Meta/Beatdown engine to it. I don't always win, but I love the cards I'm using, which makes it okay.

For me, i base my deck on which cards are cheap and easy to find. In my country, Light of Destruction booster pack onwards are the ones that you can see in shops. you can rarely see booster packs which is older than the booster pack mentioned. for now, my deck is Psychic, since most of them are commons and easy to find. My deck don't focus on synchros much and rely on beatdown/OTK so my deck got no super powerful cards. And yet Psychic got no support cards from before ( like blackwings require/need Icarus Attack from older sets) so their support cards are easy to find as well. Lastly playing is not about winning at all, its more about enjoying the game, and winning is just a bonus.

I like different decks alien for the pluses and remove brainwashing, skill drain because I started to see lots of stardusts, jd, dads, glads and stuff like that Killbolt 05:07, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

If I can remember, I made my Spellcaster deck when I was playing Ragnarok RPG (which, btw, I have a wiz character). Time passed and I've quit Ragnarok but the Spellcaster theme was stuck in my head. I use a Spellcounter theme deck nowadays. I'm fascinated about them although I'm not into magics and sorcery and what not. I, too, like Monarchs because I feel like a King when playing! hahaha! Bow down when I enter, you knave! --SilentHero26 06:49, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

I use original decks that I make on my own.--Squidman 20 00:53, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

-I prefer non-mainstream decks, or at least decks that aren't used as often. I have no definite style I see that is my own, but I look at what isn't widely used and I just flow with it, looking at all the options of whatever the theme is and rolling with it. For instance, I am currently working on a Psychic based deck that can hold its own in the Meta scene, as well as a Flamvell/Quillbolt loop deck mainly for fun since it's still incomplete. Well, if you want to try to "find your style", just try making more decks and play test them until you find one that's comfortable to you. Tweak it and experiment until you create that deck that's "yours". --Axlmmz 06:52, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

I think I have it. I tried Glad Beasts again, and that's my style. Thanx everyone!
