Coriles aside, it's always interesting to see what people used to play back in the days.

I wonder how competitive those tournaments have been... Laughing

But yeah, clearly seen there are no cards after DM-06. No Clamp meta.

Your Eyes are like a space. So bright and deep. I just want to drown in to em'...

Haha these are REALLY old. A few of these were my old playtest partners & local tournament competitors (Sergio using yodaz's 4cc, who was admin on the original duelzone.org).

Zach is right. These were the early control decks, before Clamp or Bolmeteus were released. A lot of swarming the board.

Corile + Emeral --> Merfolk was the standard draw engine at this time. People liked to have ~6 (Emeral started to go down to 2 as control became popular, since he's not so great in the mirror)
