I'm pretty new to all this blogging stuff, so no promises on decent content.
Alright! Let's get to this, so introductions, yes, something I struggle greatly with in person-to-person interactions.
Well let's start with my pen name yeah? Traveler of the Burning Herpes. Those BA players out there should recognize it as a parody of the deck's boss Dante. However, I don't actually have a BA deck nor have I actually played one. It all started when I topped at a small-scale tournament at one of the locals. Not too impressive of a feat, except I usually end up near the bottom due to misplays and overall self-cancerization (yes, that is a word, I made it up).The deck I ran during that tournament was a Harpie Lady deck combined with a Volcanics engine. With my 1500 burns and pretty bird-ladies making plays, I guess it caught quite a few by surprise and somehow or another I ended up champion (I have the sleeves the prove it!). That was the only time I had success though, ever since then I've been scrubbing out like the noob I am.
Decks I have include Harpie Ladies, Cyber Dragons, Volcanics, and Ghostricks. To be fair, my Cyber Dragons and Ghostricks are all sleeved up nice and pretty and kept in albums for display. Harpie Ladies has got to be my all time favourite deck and I love how they can also incorporate other unconventional engines to change up the game play. Recently I have started using my Volcanics in competitive play to some success. It's all fun and games until 1500 burn damage Raigeki's are constantly dealt, and the unsuspecting double Volcanic Counter's in the grave have brought plenty of cancerous tears to my eyes. I hate Chain Burn, because burning should be done with FIRE.
I've been playing for almost 2 years, but the game has since changed at a remarkable pace and it's pretty hard to keep up. My decks are, in general, pretty sloppily thrown together, and as a duelist I am pretty stubborn. Don't expect great deck profiles from me, but if you want to hear about how I troll at local rankings, I'd be happy to oblige.
