Jar of Greed
Trap Card; Draw 1 card from your Deck.
Is it just me or do you think the whole fad of using Upstart Goblin and Reckless Greed is a little old? I’m not a fan of allowing my opponent to gain Life Points only to draw 1 extra card. You’ll end up working twice as hard to bring them down afterwards. People say you play a "37" card deck when you play Upstart, but you’re forgetting that in order to play a 37 card deck, you’re going to be playing an opponent with 11000 Life Points. It’s an alright card, but if you truly want to play a “37” card deck, just play Jar of Greed. It’s arguably better, if not the same. For one, you don’t lose advantage when it comes to Life Points. Two, it’s a chainable Trap Card, so when your opponent Mystical Space Typhoons it, you chain, you lose nothing, while your opponent goes -1. Three, it creates bluff, so it scares your opponent to being more cautious than they need to, when in reality, it’s just a Jar of Greed. The only down side to this card is that it requires it to be set, which is absolutely fine, because if you were top-decking, you’d be screwed either way.

Deck Profile: Field_Spell Control
Here’s a little deck I made out of Field Spells to control the board. As you can see, the win condition is to hurry the heck up and get to your Geartowns via Terraforming/Magical Hats and spam the field with Ancient Gear Gadjiltron Dragon and advance with attacks. That’s not all, though. I’m able to recycle Geartowns, or any other Field Spells, with Minefieldriller, and to get to it, I play 1 Giant Rat. I noticed there are lots of EARTH attribute monsters, so I threw in a single Gigantes, and also because Level 4s are very relevant in this deck for the Level 3 Tuners to Synchro up for Level 7 Synchros.
It’s just very nice to be able to control the board with Field Spells. If you don’t want your opponent to perform a normal summon, you play Future Visions. If you want to change the type of all monsters, including the Graveyard, you play Zombie World. If you don’t want your opponent to move cards out the Graveyard, you play Necrovalley, which makes Royal Tribute live. It’s always nice to see your opponent’s hand and discard their monsters.
Synchro Summons are also a possible thing to do, and the MVP of this deck would be Ancient Pixie Dragon, or the Dark version of Ancient Fairy Dragon. If you don’t know what it does, it can destroy 1 attack position monster your opponent controls if there is a Field up, and this is once per turn. In addition to that, it allows you to draw 1 extra card every time you play a Field Spell card. Plus ones are really nice.
And that’s an introduction to my new favorite and fun deck to play.
