First of all, happy 1st of September. From now onwards, there will be no more Substitoad, Rescue Cat and Heavy Storm, set your spell and traps freely, however beware of cards like Black Rose Dragon and Royal Decree. Finally, the game breaking Brain Control has been banned. Now we will have to watch out for cards like Dark Hole and Monster Reborn.
Time for the Trap part of my deck review.
Starlight Road: Even with Heavy Storm banned, this card can still stop other cards like Black Rose Dragon, Dark Hole, Torrential Tribute and Mirror Force.
Hero Blast: Really strong in this deck, can easily net you a +1 in terms of card advantage. It also has high synergy with Gemini Spark.
Solemn Warning: Mostly to control the field, can negate the summons of opposing Blackwings or Gemini monsters, preventing your opponent from activating Icarus Attack and Gemini Spark respectively.
Trap Dust Shoot: Although many players have decided to drop this card from their main decks, I still kept it in my main deck because I believe that the advantage in terms of card knowledge this card brings is too good for it to be removed. However, when facing spell/trap heavy decks I will probably side it out for something else.
Mind Crush: Really good when used in conjuction with Trap Dust Shoot, it can also be good against any deck that mains Pot of Duality.
Dust Tornado: For some extra spell/trap removal other than Mystical Space Typhoon.
Royal Oppression: Special summoning negation is really useful against Debris Dragon based decks and Herald of Perfection decks.
Mirror Force/Torrential Tribute/Bottomless Trap Hole/Solemn Judgment: Staples
Also, do you guys think I should keep the pictures or remove them. Because I find them pretty messy and they could make reading my posts a hassle with all the scrolling.
