Sorry to say this late, but I forgot you had 6 targets for Noden, so you may consider keeping IF in the deck.

Probably the true meaning of friendship

...First time I'm reading this guide and I'm noticing that both my Machina and Shaddoll builds follow it to a t. Way to go, me.

 

That said, any thoughts on Limiter Removal?

Limiter Removal is a neat card that you can do some serious damage with, but I've found that I'd rather not spend the Dora material unless it's for winning, and the fact it's a limited card made me basically put it aside since I wouldn't be relying on the card anyways.

 

And nons, for your build, I'd reccomend this:

 

- Get Royal Decree down to 2; 3 is asking for dead draws and 2 has been a nice sweet-spot from my experimentation.

- Add in either a second Scrap Recycler OR a second Mathematician (your choice; up to preference)

- Exchange the 2 Cyclones for either 2 MSTs or either like max out on either BTS or Chalice and toss in a Book of Moon. This isn't really a continuous-trap heavy format, so Cyclone is better off in the side-deck in case you go against anything big.

 

And then for the Extra Deck; I think I'd just go 2 Gustavs and 3 81's to cap it off. Your R4 plays won't be happening that often, and right now you have a good selection for when you will be doing them; so it's probably best to max out on your primary monsters first and leave those as toolbox options.

 

Other than that, you've got a solid deck in your hands right off the bat and I wish you luck!

Any advice on the monstrous  "Rocket Arrow-Express" and sometimes referred as the "worst" of the trains? Solomon's Lawbook can prevent it negative effect once, but are there other combos this card can pull of?

Pretty much the only two things you can do with Rocket Arrow are use it with Night Express Knight for a Rank 10 play at the cost of your Battle Phase, or bluff with it and then if your hand is still crap attack with it anyways. Using a combo such as Solomon's Lawbook ends up being too situational and too fragile of a play to really be worth it.

TBH, I don't really think it warrants a name like "Spider Trains", since you're just using a couple different generic Xyz monsters. It would be like calling an M&M deck a Traptrix deck.

Training Dolphins are cool 10/10

Also,

 

"The Shaddoll Fusions can also be run at whichever number you desire. Some go 3 El Shaddoll Fusions with 2 Shaddoll Fusions, while some just go 3 Shaddoll Fusions with no El Shaddoll Fusions; the numbers can be up to your personal preference."

 

Might want to fix that before people "derail" your thread because of it, because it's a good way to..."blow off steam".

 

 

Will be trying out those builds to see how they go. Dipping into OCG cardpool folks, yay!

This thread is so damn lit, especially considering I could never get all the trains in one place. I also wasn't aware Rocket Arrow Express was a train.

 

Anyway, this seems like easily the most creative deck Konami has ever made, and looks extremely fun. Not sure exactly when we get the Japanese support, though.

Excited to read through this when I'm not in history class <_<

Thanks! I had fun putting this guide together, and always have had fun with this deck. I honestly can't say when we'll get the Japanese exclusives or even the promos, but if and when we do I'll be a happy clam!

 

Just to note, did some minor spring cleaning on some outdated text, as well as cleaned up the match-ups to remove old and irrelevant decks and putting in some of the newer ones. Should be up to date on the current banlist!
