Notes from Emma Valentine

Similarly to last month, I used Masked Heroes to climb from Platinum 4 to Legend 1 very quickly. After that, I swapped to an updated version of the OTK Samurai decklist I used in August for KoG and the giveaway tournament. I intended to use the deck in the 6th November Meta Weekly, but I missed the sign-up deadline by exactly 1 minute. With the meta slowing down and most decks relying on staple backrow (e.g. Wall of Disruption, Widespread Ruin, and Drowning Mirror Force), I decided to revert back to the Six Samurai decklist that would capitalise on the changes. After 181 wins and undoubtedly my most difficult KoG climb so far, here's a short write-up for how it works.

The deck works almost identically to my previous OTK Samurai decklist posted in August, and the same core cards are used in my decklist for October. For those of you who were unfamiliar with said decklists. A short summary is; Doji + Grandmaster > Kizaru to the GY > Special Summon Great Shogun Shien or use Cunning of the Six Samurai to the GY. The rest of the cards enable that strategy by searching for different Six Samurai monsters with Kizaru, ensuring a board presence with Hatsume, and quick wins with Beatdown. Drowning Mirror Force is incredibly useful in the deck and acts similar to Trunade by resetting 1/2 of the other player's board (usually with overly aggressive Masked Hero players). Although the deck is powerful, bricking is unfortunately common until we get Legendary Six Samurai Kizan and Kageki.

As per-usual, here's some highlights against the majority of meta decks:
