70 is a Magic Number. Watch Out for Reset Decks!

Summary:  Yet another interesting discussion from Japanese EOJ forum.  Supposely, some are saying we see much less Reset decks with the release of Set.3; whereas, others are saying they are still seeing a lot of Reset Decks.  So where is this discrepancy coming from?  Or more importantly, how should players approach this?

What is Reset Deck?

It is one of three deck types (Winnie, Combo, and Reset).  During the Set.1 and Set.2 era, people has thought of this as one of the best deck type, yet many players feel they are one of the most boring type of deck to play against.  The classic example of Reset deck is a Biolith decks.

For more detail of three deck classification in the EOJ, please see EOJ Rock Scissor Paper ~ Metagame ~ 


Why do we care?

It’s all about metagame.  Being able to climb up the EOJ ladder and become A ranked player, we need to have well designed deck, good tactics during a game, and understand a general trend.  With the introduction of Set.3 cards, it is not too hard to beat Reset decks as long as we know that your opponent is playing with Reset decks.  However, gearing your decks specifically toward against reset deck would result in sub optimal deck against many other deck types.  So being able to tell when to use anti-reset deck vs. when to use your other deck are important decision making point.


When do we see Reset deck in use?

According to the discussion from the Japanese EOJ forum, it sounds like the magic number is 70.  Those high ranked players still prefers to use Reset deck as their “ultimate winning deck.”  For this reason, as soon as they see the opponent has greater than 70.0 rank point, they tend to switch from other deck types to Reset Deck.

So know the number 70, and once you get to that level and your opponent is also high ranked player, try use anti-reset deck.  This may get you to even higher rank.

    I read the other thread (link) and I still don’t get what you mean by reset deck. Do you mean the Attrition decks focussed on library defeat?

    Correct. Reset = Attrition decks focusing on library defeat.
