So many decks, so little time...

Some people write an opinion piece to dump their opinions on you.  This is my opinion piece, and what I need are your opinions.  I have a unique first world problem -

I have dozens of decks made, but no time to test them.  I am running my best decks in the double elimination style outlined in my last Duels Diaries entry, and it is still taking me up to twenty minutes to find a game.  That means instead of playing a few decks a day, I am playing just a few decks a week due to the combination of extended matchmaking times and my Jordan-style refusal to lose.

So I have all these decks, and I want to know what readers think about them and what I should play next.  I also offer them up here for anyone who wants to carry the mantle and test them for me and share their results.

The rest of this post is a projectile vomit of decklists that I can't wait to try, and if anyone wants to try them and either send me the results, post the results in comments, or Twitch / YouTube the session, I will be honored and grateful.

- One more thing - these lists are NOT frickin' trademarked.  If you want to change some cards to your taste, you don't need my permission, you can take the idea and tweak it and run with it to your heart's content.

- One more one more thing - I haven't tested any of these against human beings, they could be worse than a defender theme deck.  You've been warned.
