Sidedecking 101

As we all know, sidedecking is extremely important in yugioh. lucks for not being able to draw that sidedeck-ing cards aside, being able to side the RIGHT card at the RIGHT time is extremely important.


I used to think that regardless who goes first in a game does not affect the cards being sided in, and i was wrong. It all dawned on my when my friend told me how important it is and after reading J-speed's blog.


Let me use trap dustshoot to elaborate further.








We all know how important and crucial this card is especially when the era of delinquent duo is gone. Now ask yourself this question, if you need that extra 1 more slot in order to fill in your 1 sidedeck card and you are thinking of siding out this card. When would you choose to side this card out?


When you starts first?


When you starts second?


i think the answer is pretty obvious.


See that? Putting it in when you start second has no value in it, and may even harm you when you drew it in an inappropriate moment. and then you realize that you should have taken it out.


Though certain cards may perform a similar function, like for example, system down and cyber dragon, both are good cards against machines. now you go second, which one would you have chosen? 


when your opponent sets 2-3 backrows and 2 machines on field, is it safer to special summon cyber dragon to contact for chimeratech or use system down better? because you knows or afraid of warning, bottomless etc. but rarely people plays cards that negates magic. of course you can keep on arguing which is better, but i hope you get my point.


Starting second may not be as disadvantage as it seems, with careful and proper planning and sidedecking, i believe you can turn the table around. 


When life gives you lemon, make lemonade. =)
