Hello, fine peoples!
Been playing a lot of World Duel Carnival on my 3DS recently. I've run through all the characters in the main story mode with the condition: "every time I win, I can swap out one card from my deck. If my extra deck is not full, I can add 1 card to it in addition to the swap".
It was an interesting challenge because I could change some underlying aspects of the character decks, but I couldn't fully overhaul the deck because each character's campaign consisted of 11 total duels. For example, I started with Quattro's Gimmick Puppet deck and I was able to take out the brickier Gimmick Puppets to add Machina Fortress and 3 Machina Gearframe, however even in the last duel I was able to summon Gimmick Puppet of Leo.
Anyways, I decided to take this to the logical extreme and now I'm starting the last duelist's campaign.
The last duelist is essentially the Tag Force games' protagonist, i.e. the Vagabond from Duel Links. Unlike the rest, he duels every character in the game in order to get to his ending. This consists of ~40 duels.
To start, I am going to have a fully randomized deck of 40 cards (20 monsters, 10 spells, and 10 traps) and only 5 extra deck cards. Further, when I win, I will choose monster, spell or trap and get a choice of 1 of 3 random cards to swap into my deck. For the Extra Deck, I'll probably usually randomize 1 of 3 Xyzs (or maybe Syncs, depending on how my deck shapes) to swap in. Anyone here can also suggest a number which I'll use in my next random choice.
I'll keep my initial card list, current card list and change log in the OP with details in further posts.
Some duels will definitely be easier than others. I dunno if I'll even be able to get through it all, but it should be interesting to try!
I'll try to update after every duel/few duels.
