    Did you even look at the Advanced format limited list? I took the pleasure of linking you to it just in case.

    Other than that.....I don't see any sort of synergy in this deck, it seems all over the place, what are you trying to do with it?

    Well that is a very broad topic to narrow down onto, you will need some sort of strategy to focus on, then tune the deck around that, right now your deck is trying to be way too much, it has to be your call first to choose a specific strategy before advice can be given. Any deck needs synergy, or in other words the ability to work well with itself.

    Yes but you need to narrow in on something that you can form the deck around, a specific key strategy Like if you wanted, focus the deck around Gogogo Golem, using Gogogo Ghost and Giant to perform rank 4 xyzs. Something that has some actual strategy and not just random cards thrown together

    You see those specific cards actually help consistency, which is a driving factor in a lot of decks. If there's a time where you need a specific card, with all this randomness the chances of that happening are lower, specially if you have the ability to search for and summon monsters on a more specific scale. Now i'm not saying jump on the Meta-*** train but try at least to focus your deck

    Because Randomness will never be able to focus reliably enough to be able to win consistently. You'll face people who won't know what your deck really does but their reactions will be "Well, this seems easy enough, a rogue deck with no direction" And then do whatever strategies they have planned and knock you out almost everytime. You can't win in this game by throwing out random cards and hoping they work, you need to plan and strategize to overcome your opponent

    You're also using quite a lot of banned cards, and if he's running on the Advanced Format, that's a large handicap for him

    ...Not a single banned trap, plus there's no telling whether your brother is able to build a good blackwing deck, or if he's capable of using it properly, I can show you synergy with the deck's i've made.

    Just because they are his favorite archetype of cards doesn't mean he knows how to run them proerly. My favorite archetype is Karakuris and I can admit I don't run them right and my deck sould be better, I just play quite a few other cards games with more people to play against then Yugioh so most of my money for gomain goes toward them. But anyway yeah follow the banlist and you need to be consistent, running only one of a single card if it isn't o the list at all is kinda dumb (no offence). Try running 3 of the creatures you need, if your going for Rank 4 XYZ summons then Gogogo Golem is a good card, Number 39: Utopia is a staple in decks that use XYZ's. So try and make it more consistent, which in the long run will make the deck more lthal in general. and if your worrying about a certain type of deck use the Sideboard to the best of your advantage.

    I think Kunaiman summed it up perfectly - your Deck is too random. This won't work well in Tournaments, this won't even work well in casual Duels.

    Using random cards may looks like it's a good idea at first, since it can throw off your opponent, but after more Duels you'll realize it's actually a bad idea due to lack of consistency.
    That and your opponents will eventually realize your Deck is nothing more than just a random cards deck that lacked any actual strategy & consistency.

    If you have consistency, you don't have to worry about needing specific cards to do anything, because the specific cards will always be there.
    It's the lack of consistency that should make you worry.





    Since you said you want a "quick Xyz spam" Deck, I suggest using a Gagaga-Gogogo Deck.
    Gagaga can summon most Xyz monsters quickly due to their Level-changing ability, while Gogogo helps in summoning Rank 4 Xyz, which is the most abundant Rank.
    Add more Level-changing cards like Synchro Boost, Tannhauser Gate, or Galaxy Queen's Light, and you'll have an easier time summoning various Xyz monsters.

    You also can put a few splashable Tuners if you want to be able to summon Synchros as well.

    Also, once it is released outside Japan, I suggest getting Kamenleon. It's a Level 4 Tuner that helps both Synchro and Xyz.

    If its Lightsworns you are looking at, I can help with that, as for water decks.....(shudders at thoughts of Mermails and Atlanteans) There are a lot of different ways to go, the Water attribute has recieved a lot of support lately.

    Also a deck my roommate ran for a while was a Ninja Xyz Deck, pretty well and very consistent. Tricky to beat too.

    Well then my suggestion is to do what most other duelists do who want to run Meta. Find a winning deck build online, copy it to the exact detail and run that.

    You mean people who try to play well but have nothing to show for it. Thousands of you clog my register for pokemon tcg tournaments and I crush all of you with no remorse because you deserve none, you're not here for the game, if you we're you would have realized that the ones who do make they're own decks regardless of what others play (it's the scrubs I feel sorry for when facing me).


    This is my new favorite line, 1 card doesn't win the war, even if it's another card game still holds true in how you play the game (been playing alot of vangaurd recently, been seeing that alot between these popular card games, more use for strategy through use of combos to make a better outcome). If you have a deck that has alot of things going on and you like that fact of flexible strategy, regardless of what or where you play, you still need to keep those lines above a 1 to make it work to the best component. Even if you beat a good deck, most of the times when that happens is because you're winning against a weaker opponent (which is a good thing because it shows that you have room to develop into that game). Even if you end up running a decklist that is based off of a similar card strategy or one that isn't, doesn't matter, doesn't change the game, just as long as the spell and trap cards work with the monsters, because ripping someone else off doesn't make you better as a player.

    ok. i can see your point. this deck has done me good, so i'm gonna keep the basic structure, refine it, and bring it into tourny rules.
