1 Need help finding the deck you need? on Tue Sep 10, 2013 12:44 am

Let's face it, there's a lot of decks out there. It's going to be a little overwhelming sifting through them all looking for the one that's just for you. For this thread, I'll list some articles that can lead you to the right places for you to get started.

This link sends you to the TCG Strategies of Pojo's forums. Here, you'll find guides to just about every deck archtype in the game, which is continuously updating. If it's a certain deck you're after, you can go here to find updated guides and strategies.

A tier list is a visual list of all the best decks currently in the meta. The new meta's just starting, so only a few decks are truly competitive, but if you'd like to keep up with whatever's topping at the moment, you could go here.

This is our TCG Tier List, which keeps up with all the current tournaments going on. It lists all the decks played and where they placed, to help determine where a deck is in terms of competitive power level. Further reading into said decks can be done in the TCG Strategies articles.

Now, for more on the consistency of the decks, aka what they're made of, there's two places I go to learn more about the decks that won specific tournaments. When a deck's topped a tournament of over 50-100 people, you know it's well built. A strong player can see the cards he used and understand how exactly his choices got him his win. Other players net-deck just because with it, they think they can beat the same number of people. THIS IS NOT TRUE.

To understand how a deck's made, makes you better at understanding decks in general. You start to notice why people have certain cards in their side-decks, or what staples are common in the main. Sometimes you see something entirely new to the deck archtype you've been running, so you can raise an eyebrow and voice your concern. Questioning, asking why, that's how you get better. After posting these links, trust that you will not net-deck just for the best deck, but learn as to how and why they won.

For TCG, I head to TCG Player. Not only are there tournament articles and deck showcases, but you can search for the decks played in major tournaments. Searching for a deck is easy, just go here TCG Decklists you'll see what most players are building currently, as well as see decks that participated in TCG Tournaments. Clicking on a deck that was in a tournament gives you the decklist, as well as location as to which tournament that was held.

For OCG, one of the best places I've gone to is Shriek. Shriek's a blog that keeps up with every OCG tournament, even specific card shops that host weekly, even daily, local games. The major championships, however, hold lots of decklists in one easy click. Shriek goes by OCG, so the banlist is different. But it's always a good idea to see what the enemy's running, so the TCG players can prepare. It's also refreshing to see your main deck performing under a different banlist, see what other builds can come about.

The main purpose of this thread is to help beginners getting serious about taking their game to the next level find a deck they'd be comfortable playing, or the more intermediate players looking to already improve their game. The links posted are for the benefit of the player reading the guides and articles within, not for any sole website's gain. As always, I'm available for deck construction, and I will be glad to help those who have questions, just shoot me a PM and I'll get to you as soon as I am able.

I always have troubling finding new decks to build because either I don't like it or I find multiple decks I want to make at the same time. Thank you for writing this article that means you are contributing to the community +1. I am currently using a Redox Gadget build and I am loving it.

Cool article but I think you should retitle the article to "Finding a Deck" which is more simple and gets to the point.

I wanted to make it simple, but then it had no flavor. Besides, it still gets to the point. People wanna research decks and meta strategies, they have access to basic stuff posted here.

What I like to do is just go to DN and hit the Most recent cards section. Newest deck I have is Chaos Gaias.
