So now we've had yet another SJC pass with LS dominating the scene. As good as zombies are, they just can't deal with an established field/swarm. Zombies have an amazing ability to swarm themselves and can produce easy +1s through mezuki + goblin zombie + caius plays. Also, the ability to spam lvl6 and lvl8 synchros is just nuts. But again, if the zombie player can't put away the opponent, they fall victim to counter attack through field wipes like JD, DAD, Vortex, etc. The deck runs extremely dead cards early game like 3 Burial from a Different Dimension, 2 Caius, and DAD (not many darks in the deck and darks are generally produced through synchros).
I've tried to run zombies and I just get torn apart by blackwings. Most zombie players will tell you that 1st turn set of goblin zombie will lead up to huge combos, but I'm here to say that a 1st turn shura + whirlwind nullifies that and will end up getting you icarus attacked. I kind of like the builds running pyramid turtle, but again vs BW you still get hurt by Shura. VS Lightsworn is kind of annoying as well as there is always the threat of Celestia or Ehren.
For me, the most fun decks are Chaos variants. Sorcerer is extremely easy to summon in the right deck and produces a +1 when it hits the field. But like all of the decks, it runs early game dead cards like Sorc itself and DAD.
