    Metagame Discussion Thread

    Post  Blackwingggys on Tue Sep 08, 2009 6:32 am

    Metagame is the way the game is currently played in a given area. Specifically, when players talk about the metagame (or 'meta', for short), they talk about which deck styles and strategies are the most dominant in their area of play; for instance, a Chaos Deck metagame, cards that are played the most often or used by the most people, it also can mean the cards that are available in that area (through local-leagues or casual trade circles), and the current state of the Semi-Limited/Limited/Forbidden lists (If the area plays by the Traditional or Advanced Format).

    -September 09 Ban Lists Metagame-
    The September 09 Ban lists hit a lot of decks such as Synchro Cat and Blackwings. Sine all of Rescue Cat, Summoner Monk and Gale the Whirlwind got limited to 1.
    Here you can try to predict future Metagame.

    --Current Ideas--
    Blackwings, Lightsworns, Gladiator Beast.


    EDIT BY HYDRONIC: Black, you need to clarify your posts.

    Honestly I feel the Meta will Turn to Zombie Lightsworns Gladiators and destiny builds not to mention stun with doomcaliber being reprinted will be easier to build oh yeah and blackwing variants perhaps vayu turbo will change things though

    Vayu used to be aggressive when crush card virus wasn't banned, well actually it is the reason why its banned Razz

    I can't see Vayu being a threat. It is definitely a good card, especially if you are going for the OTK, but otherwise, it just makes a 2500 and 2300 ATKer with no effect. Does that scare anyone? Especially with it possibly giving Goyo a chance to steal the Armor Master, with full effect. Shocked

    Ok, not "Aggressive" but still swarms greatly. I used to summon 2 syncs sometimes in the first turn.

    A better example would be gladiator beasts. A good glad player can beat anything.

    O.o

    Because glads aren't the second most supported achetype in the game and the only archetype that have had support released in every booster since their release....

    I still think they need improvements. So many ways to stop them.skill drain divine wrath blackhorn of heaven G.B hunter nothing hard to get.the meta will turn to zombies,zombiecharge,lightsworns,zombiesworns,twilight,salvo decks,blackwings and x-sabers(after stardust overdrive)

    What planet do you come from? Glads won worlds this year WITH all fo the anti-glad tech.

    And FYI, zombiecharge and zombiesworn is the same thing. Solvo Decks are dead as well with the banning of Dark Strike Fighter (whole point of Salvo).

    Next meta - Burial Zombie, Dark Synchro Variants (monarch based decks like Perfect Circle), Lightsworn, Vayu Turbo (not blackwings anymore), gladiator beasts, Chaos, and probably X-Sabers.

    Gladiator Beasts are definitely good. They have plenty of support, although the only ones really used are War Chariot, Proving Ground, and on occasion Respite. However, they can take advantage of tons of other cards out there. Sure they have many weaknesses, but that is what the side deck is for Razz.

    Well, I predict that X-Sabers will dominate the meta once we get X-Sabers Palomlo and Passiul, if we get them. Still, we are getting the DT01 cards, so I predict we will get the DT02 ones as well. X-Sabers are personally my favorite archetype right next to Fortune Ladies and Cloudians.

    I've tried Fortune Ladies. My main problem is the darn consistency. If they're good, they're really good. if they're bad, they're really bad.

    I sure hope so. X-Sabers, Fortune Ladies, and Morphtronics makes up my favorite archetypes. But I can't seem to get the other 2 right...
