Tech Update Day 2
As the tournament proceeded we had some time to look at the Decks at the Top Tables. Here’s a short summary of what we found out.
What really took me by surprise was the strong showing of Satellarknight Decks. Recently there was a decline of Satellarknights, because players agreed on the Deck as only being only the third best Deck right know. But today there are quite a few players riding this Deck to success. [abstand]
Basically what they did was to build an Anti-Meta Deck against the two strongest Decks at the moment: Shaddolls and Burning Abyss. What I saw was players maining [sim] to try and slow down Shaddolls depriving them of their effects. Some even went so far as to maindecking 3 [sim] and [soul drain] in order to achieve this.

Luke Quinsee took a different approach. He is maindecking [whipsnake] as his Tech Pick in Satellarknights. As the card can switch stats of one of his opponent’s monsters it is really tricky to outplay. The effect can also be used in the oppenent’s turn and with 1700 ATK it is pretty hard to overcome. Luke is even playing [kotfi] to search it out in case he needs it.[abstand]
