I'm really stating the obvious here, but this is a terrible format for creativity and deck diversity. (At least, wherever the top four decks are heavily represented it is.) Consider that having a shot in this format with something besides those top four decks means:
1. Being able to match (or survive) the consistency of Dragon Rulers
2. Being able to constantly deal fatal damage to Prophecy
3. Being able to not rely on level 5 or higher monsters
4. Being able to constantly avoid OTKs from Mermails
Of course it's more complicated than that for each of the top decks, but you see what I mean. Anyways, thanks for reading. Til next time guys.
