Sample Deck ~ Silver Bullet Deck ~

Summary: Personally this card was one of the most eye catching card in Set.3 for me because of its ability.  At first, I even thought my translation could have been wrong.  However, in reality several readers on this blog reported this card was much harder to use than expected.  Obviously, I live in North America and still do not have Set.3 card, so can’t say for sure, but once again Asahara done this for me.  He posted yet another conceptually interesting sample deck that uses “Missionary Ship” as a key card.

How does this deck work?

Missionary Ship is an action packed creature as follows:

1. While an allied creature is adjacent to Missionary Ship, the affiliation of all non-Biolith creatures in your library, hand, and on the board is changed to Church of Parmus.
2.  When an enemy creature uses an attack action while Missionary Ship is on a non-Biolith field, you may discard 2 creature cards from your hand to cancel the action.  your opponent’s Activation Cost is not returned.
3. Each time you summon a creature to a non-Fire field, you may choose a non-Ultra Rare creature from the library with the same affiliation as the summoned creature, reveal it, add it your hand, then shuffle your library.

Among above three unique actions, 1 & 3 works extremely well together.  Once all creatures in your library changes their affiliation to Church of Parmus, third ability becomes draw any non-UltraRare creature from your library.

One of the challenge in TCG is its luck base.  Competitive players put this in their mind when they make decks; however, even then when you have extremely bad day, you may end up having 5 spells in your hand with no creature.  Alternatively, you may be really lucky and have every single card in your deck when you want it.

Well Missionary Ship will change it from just mere lucky day to strategy based.  

Silver Bullet Strategy

With its ability to draw any non-UltraRare from your library, you can do so many things.  My first instinct is in fact to use along with combo decks such as Ninja Deck.  But here Asahara used it to execute “Silver Bullet Strategy.”

This simply means draw a silver bullet creature off the library to kill your enemy.  As you can see his sample deck above contains mostly 1 instead of multiple copies of each, this is because more different types of bullets (creatures) you have, the more silver bullet you have.

    My real problem with this deck is that it doesn’t have any attacker that hits higher than 3 HP…
    It’s a real tricky one…
    I’m going to give it a whirl tonight!

    Yeah, as I suspected, it’s a great theoretical deck, but in practice there simply aren’t enough cheap attacking cards (tree foxes, novices, etc.) for this to be competitive… it’s a good foundation though, so tweak it to your personal taste (and it does show an interesting and creative strategy!)

    @Fongy,

    I agree with you. I’m not sure if Asahara is doing this on purpose, but all decks that he posts seemed to have great concept, but need a tweaking before it can become competitive.

    I think your right, he’s only posting possable decks, not the finished article. Half the fun of the game is building your own deck, he simply provides a basic template with an idea for you to work on.

    ya u cant really play 3 cubes and 3 mimic in a deck
    that 6 cards that dont attack.

    u can go like 3 and 1 or 2 and 1. thats about it

    but this is a good concept

    take out inquisitrix and one missionary ship, put in Darksword samurai and sword of juno (to get rid of samurai or to put on top of a damaged ship)

    get rid of 2 mimic, play 2 small damage creatures w/ life
