Some deck notes:

The AoBS is really sweet but takes some practice. I copied the deck idea originally from Tim Simon who I saw playing it at MD states last year or the year before that. I didn't actually see a decklist but I was watching him play a guy and pay 0 for forfeit 9 guys. Seemed good.

At worlds, the deck posted victories of 39, 38, 36 and 10 in Day 2 and 22, 21, 16 in Day 3.


The EBO is a terrible deck. Note the ground package. It was a product of the night before and not having a light deck that could beat both Fear and any variety of DS ground decks like Hunt Down, CCT, Watto, AoBS, etc. So I figured I would suck it up and lose to all those decks, but beat Fear. I got the idea from Joe Giannetti and Aaron Kingery. But then I took out all the good cards (the ground package).

Obviously it's one-sided, but the damage potential is awfully high. I played vs one Fear deck (Brian Hunter's) in game 8 of Day 2 and won by 18. But I found it sad I had to make a deck that is an auto-loss to 75% of decks in order to beat one particular decktype. Oh well. It went 2-2, losing to CCT by 19, Combat by 4, and beating a Rallops by 20something thanks to a good dose of luck.

Enjoy

thx heaps for posting and look forward to seeing the tr :)

ps that aobs is extremely similar to shaw's day 3 list from last year. heavy sac, 2x lando puller, very similar char/red mix... idk how much various aobs list differ, but that looks similar enough that I'm guessing it originated with him.

Shaw got the deck from Chu last year. Fred played the same deck last year as well, heh.

So I guess they would be similar, eh?

oops, the deck was called "shaw hijacks chu/fred aobs" wasn't it :). I'm surprised that deck managed to get so far with so little changing. it got very popular for a while online and then, from what I saw, it started getting dominated by mains playing 2x scum v, 3x sense, some anti-evasion and 2x grabbers (or the revo deck). I mean the deck is basically bulleted by the best v interrupt ever :). It is one of the very few decks that does well vs senate tho...

Yeah you are right on all counts. This is a great example of a strong deck that would be brought down to the level of competitive but not overly strong with the reduction in power of Fear. A great example: at MD states last year Pistone played a throne-room style mains deck and beat my Aobs. Day 2 this year I matched up with him and won pretty handily, which I attribute to him putting in at least 3 but probably more like 5-7 anti-Fear cards. 60 card decks can't afford to dedicate 10% to terrible counters for an abusive deck and expect to compete with another style of deck.

I think that's true. I thought i had solved the problem of making a mains deck that beat ig88 v, aobs, HD, rops and fear but I think it only beat fear because the people I was playing against that used fear were by and large scrubs. You do need to dedicate more than the 2 card slots I had for the fear matchup (insight/ihsa) to have a decent chance of beating it and doing so means you lose critical cards that help you win the other matchups. And either way, you still lose to io/ic, cloud city walkers, LSC and tanks. I'm slowly beginning to realise that light side reactive mains are a lost cause... and yet people STILL complain about the v jedi :roll:

Yeah that is insane. I am looking forward to the TR to explain how he got those real high diff wins.

Broken Concentration and AoBS flip side cycling, probably.

Never got the Broken Concentration thing going, and anyways there's no Barquin Dan in there for the retrieval loop. But you're right about the flip side cycling.

Honestly, the deck needs to deploy very little and Reegesk stole about 30 cards over the course of the tourney. Some games I resleeved 7+ cards and sent them back into my deck. Between not having a lost pile (via Scum) or a hand (having sent the hand back with Vengeance of the Dark Prince gametext) = big time wins.

Wish I had realized this through a few weeks ago. I don't think any version of LS mains did well at the event. LS senate beatdown was about the closest thing anyone got to work, and combat seemed to do alright also. The other ls decks were space oriented.

I take it you tried ls reactive mains? I feel your pain. I tried for a long time and then woke up to myself. the situation is a shame because imo it's the most fun ls decktype, but I just don't think it's a viable deck atm, there's far too many different platforms it has to compete in and it just can't do it all. lsc is a different beast because it's fundamentally not a reactive deck and senate.... senate's in a class of its own and is certainly not a fun deck to play against.

I went with LS reactive mains also and it crapped out on me. The deck is solid, but it just didn't work out on Saturday. Losses to Darkside Combat, Hunt Down, and Raveling's SYC deck. The only win was against Pistone, but he was done playing for the night and drew up quick so who knows how the game would've turned out.

that sounds pretty much average to me. Dark LSC should autowin ls mains, it just has higher destiny, better chars (lord maul + TPM + tricks = invincible) and better damage. also, some of the time you're so busy packing tech for other matchups that the destiny 3 bullet just can't fit in so you get combatted if you somehow survive. HD is usually a coin flip for lS mains b/c to beat rops and fear and have a chance against tanks, you really should be packing savrip + escape pod + sense, which are wasted cards vs HD. they'll also have higher destiny and more destiny adding than you, so you're more likely to take overflow. And syc is beatable by mains, but you can't expect to do so all the time, it really comes down to how much tech you pack and how quick they get setup.

It wasn't your typical SYC.

Question for mr yellow:

Desai posted the senate deck already but mentioned that you changed a couple of cards. I am curious. What were your changes?

Chu, that AOBS deck is awsome, I played it at Utah states in 2005 right before the Re-Edit/Dux and went undefeated with it. There is so much to the deck.

As far as your LS, ya, I've gotten my DS blown up by that deck before at WN - boom, good game.
