Yugioh - Expected Meta for 3/1/2010 part 1

Welcome to another new format in Yugioh!  Just as in every new format, there will be tons of experimentation and tons of people falling back on old favorites.  Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that meta will be GBs, LS and BWs for the next month or so.  Lets discuss some reasons why I feel this way.
Gladiator Beasts -
  Since Konami felt the need to utterly destroy all of the previous draw engines and advantage engines in the game (ie allure, ddraw, CotLB), GBs now have the capability to keep up with anything this meta throws at it.  I can forsee defense heavy builds packing trip Book, dprisons, and smashing grounds putting in a lot of work.  I think these builds will forego Prisma in favor of pure GBs with rescue cat to make Secutor or Samnite live at the most opportune times.  This will mean low monster counts with trip Proving Ground.  It's really a shame that mind crush got limited because now the slowest deck of last format now has the best tutor in the game. 
  Any deck that has to set monsters or runs Battle Recruiters are going to get destroyed.  This is the reason that Grave Keepers, X Sabers, and other that need time to set up are not going to do so well.  Many people just don't remember how dominant GBs were right after Dark Armed Return was killed.  Even with one Bestiari, Gyzarus Spamming is quite easy and savvy GB players will always have a book of moon or My Body as a Shield to prevent Besti from getting bottomless'd.
  Finally, in order to beat glads, you are going to need a strong side deck.  I would suggest Mirror of Oaths, Royal Oppression (if you aren't maining them already), and Dust Tornados.  Royal Decree won't do much to stop Book of Moon and it also lets Besti put in major work with no fear.  I'm going to test Malevolent Catastrophe because so far, every GB player i've faced turtles up behind 2 or more s/t per turn after Heavy Storm is played.
  Next time, we'll discuss my reasons that Lightsworn will STILL be a pain in everyone's ass this format.

  1. As a GB player I agree with most of this. Although i personally prefer a prisma build backed with my body as a shield, but as you said, opression is going to become popular. So expect trap stuns and dust tornados from GBs.
    Also watch out for shrink, I'm sure to test it out more, as it can act offesivly and defensivly, especially with Samnite, which i might start using again.

  2. Well, its nice to see that the fish OTK won't be hurt too much. I guess I'll be dusting off the old gadgets as well as one of my team mates making a comeback, possibly as our best player deck wise with GB.

    I am looking forward to this new format. Finally, Destiny Zombie will be taken down.

  3. i think alot of people are taking destiny hero-plasma control deck thats coming back running the 3 smashing and double soul exchange combos. also the crazy synchro engine with brains and minds and diamond dude combos will be huge. even without 2 d draw the deck should hold up. im personally running 2 dashers. and everyones taking the new monarch deck way to likely haha this firmats gonna be so good. i forsee cyber drags ruiling the game again soon!

  4. I think that gb is gonna be strong. all you gb players out there get your fairy winds ready because anti meta willl also be coming on strong with the massive slowdown of the game. zombie and ls may still be tier one, but definately not as deadly. blackwing is going to be very good, so go get some dd crows and prevent those vayus. look out for a water build, the new card in abpf that blows up 2 by tributing umi is broke, so i really can't wait to see what wins the jump in jersey
