A tale of the past: Decks to expect
YCS Rimini has a very unique metagame and there are several well-known favourites as well as a few new contenders. Let’s see which Decks show the most promise for taking the title.
The winning deck of this year’s World Championship is a strong control Deck with some serious burst damage potential. It’s based around Seto Kaiba’s famous [bewd], which received very strong support in recent releases. [besd] stops effects based around the Graveyard, which shuts down Burning Abyss, as well as multiple simultaneous Special Summons, which severely limits the Pendulum Deck’s options. [bead] can end the game in a single turn and the Deck is even able to use the highly anticipated [potdes].
This new archetype introduced in [tdil] is often played in conjunction with Yang Zing and is extremely good at the long game, generating significant card advantage in order to win by running the opponent out of options. The game is based around destroying your own Monsters, activating their effects, while Setting new cards directly from the Deck with the Metalfoes’ effects.
This long time classic is at its peak performance for the last time, with 2 of its key cards being Limited on the new [fll].
Many consider this the best and most consistent Deck in the entire format, and there can be no doubt it has a very good chance of taking home the title one last time before the [fll] forces it out of the metagame.
Back to all news
This deck is affected by the new [fll] in the most impactful way, with [pp keyboard] being Forbidden and [ma kir] Limited starting next Monday. It won the [wcq2016] through its ability to execute its game plan of swarming the field with strong Pendulum Monsters in nearly every game, but won’t be able to do this any more without these important cards.
