Like it or not, Light Lords are definitely NOT DEAD! Like most top decks in past formats, this deck has evolved immensely. The deck has lost many key cards:
2 Necro Gardna
2 Charge of the Light Brigade
The average player would think that would enough to kill the deck type, but to seasoned players like our team and dedicated LS players the banlist has opened up slots to be filled with cards that previously were filled with staples. Think about it, the loss of 7 cards that were part of the back bone of the deck can now be replaced with "tech" that can fully support the deck and allow it to do things that it couldn't reliably do in the past...MAIN TRAP CARDS! Since the deck is not turbo milling now, be on the lookout for cards in the main you are not used to seeing in competitive builds of LS:
Call of the Haunted
In the past those spots were taken up by monsters and beckoning light...Now those once harmless bluffs in the backrow are now serious threats. I'd also like to add that LS should now be refered to as Twilight because in my opinion Gale, Chaos Sorc, DAD, Gorz, Trago, even Phantom of Chaos are staples in this deck.
Next time we'll go into the evolution of Blackwings. This should be fun!
