Deck Profile: Chris Bull’s “Divine Diamonds”

[p]There are many wild and wonderful combos available in the [ygo] TRADING CARD GAME. From alternate win conditions to Decks that can Special Summon monsters in unique ways. Chris Bull of the UK has brought something along these lines to YCS Brighton, a solid Deck with a unique twist. Let’s take a look![/p]

Chris Bull will turn your world upside-down!

The main combos of the Deck revolve around [convulsion], which takes both Duelists’ Decks and flips them upside-down. While Bull gets to see the next card his opponent will draw (and can plan his moves accordingly) he’s also running several cards that can take full advantage of this unique Dueling situation!
[br]
For a start he’s using 2 [diamond] and 2 [divine]. Diamond Dude lets Bull reveal the top card of his Deck, and if it’s a Normal Spell Card he can activate it for free. Since he already knows what his next card is, he can play Diamond Dude to get free effects every time. The best thing about this is that there’s no activation cost to pay for these free cards, so he can draw 2 cards with [ddraw] without discarding a monster! [divine] works in a similar way; he declares a card name, reveals the top card of his deck and adds it to his hand if he calls it right (which he will, thanks to [convulsion]).
[br]
On top of that Bull is using 3 copies of [oath], the continuous spell that (in this Deck) keeps on giving! One per turn (per card, if he controls multiple copies), Bull can pay 500 Life Points and declare a card name and reveal the top card of his Deck. Like [divine], if it’s correct he adds it to his hand, but if not it goes to the Graveyard, which might not be a bad idea at all! Bull’s using [malicious], [miracle] and various WATER monsters (like [diva]) to pump out mighty Fusion monsters like [zero], and Synchro Monsters like [sdd]. The DARK Destiny Hero cards also combine with the LIGHT monsters in the Deck to let him Summon [bls], so once this Deck gets going it can really pack a punch!
[br]
Flip the Decks over, get free stuff, and spy on your opponent at the same time!

There’s other cool tricks to look out for in here as well, such as using [mind crush] to declare the card(s) he knows are in his opponent’s hands (after seeing them on top of his Deck), [dustshoot] to see everything else, and [aoi] to peek at his opponent’s hand and discard whatever he wants.
[br]
This Deck is unlike anything we’ve seen before at a YCS, and let’s hope Chris Bull’s decision to build a competitive and unusual Deck pays off![/div]
