Blue Ginyu or Why I Feel So Dirty.

Posted: March 17, 2015 in Uncategorized

I had today off.  No work. No plans. No events.  Just a day to myself to do what I please.  What do I do? I build a new deck to play test with and against. What deck do I choose? Why the only deck type I’ve yet to ever beat in an official tournament setting: Blue Ginyu.

I hate it so much.  It requires absolutely zero skill to pilot. I’m sorry if you are a fan of the deck type and are offended, but it’s true.  At least with Black you have to have a good working knowledge of the cards most likely found in most decks.  Orange requires reading the board constantly, knowing what each of your dozen or so Drills do and how they interact with one another.  Namekian is about maintaining  a rejunivated discard pile and balancing your power levels for the various energy attacks.  Blue Ginyu?  Get your allies out to fight the battle for you.

Thematic? Yes. Powerful? Absolutely. Fun? Not so much.

I digress.  I wanted to try something completely different than the various variants to Namekian I’d been running the last few months.  I get why it’s popular and why it wins.  I do, I really do.  I just don’t think it’s for me.
