[Deck Profile] DAS Deck

Hello again;

this week's Deck Profile is about Six Samurai. You ask, why would one want to play Six Samurai even thought it got 'crippled' by the ban list? Well, the 'herp-derp' Six Sam got crippled, but the Asceticism build still lives.

But wasn't the Dimensional Samurai a better way to play against this Meta (with Agents and Sworns sans mass)? The answer is yes. This is the reason, why I created a new version of Dimensional Samurai.

It is called DAS (Dimensional Asceticism Samurai) and this is how it looks like.

Monster (16):
2x Grandmaster of the Six Samurai
3x Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan
3x Kagemusha of the Six Samurai
2x Elder of the Six Samurai
2x Legendary Six Samurai - Kageki
1x Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi
1x Hand of the Six Samurai
1x The Six Samurai - Yaichi
1x Shien's Squire

Spells (17):
3x Six Samurai United
3x Shien's Dojo
3x Asceticism of the Six Samurai
3x Dimensional Fissure
1x Gateway of the Six
1x Reinforcement of the Army
1x Shien's Smoke Signal
1x Monster Reborn
1x Heavy Storm

Traps (7):
2x Solemn Warning
2x Musakani Magatama
1x Double-Edged Sword Technique
1x Solemn Judgment
1x Trap Dustshoot

Extradeck (15):
1x Stardust Dragon
1x Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
1x Orient Dragon
1x Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En
1x T.G. Hyper Librarian
1x Ally of Justice Catastor
1x Naturia Beast
1x Naturia Barkion
1x Naturia Landoise
1x Black Rose Dragon
1x Colossal Fighter
1x Scrap Dragon
1x Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
1x Leviair the Sea Dragon
1x Number 17: Leviathan Dragon

First of all, you will see the Enishi. While playing this deck, I have found out that having a 2200 ATK
Monster (while there are more Six Sams on my side) that has the possibility to either send an opponent's monster like Stardust back to hand or return on of your monsters to your hand to safe it against Black Rose or Hole is really working out.

The second thing you'll notice is Yaichi. He is the replacement for the lack of MSTs in this deck. He tested very well and in conclusion he is worth running.

Then you will notice the lack of MSTs, Book of Moon and Dark Hole. They all had to leave to rebuild the Asceticism Samurai deck. Remove stuff that sometimes helps, add in stuff that works great against this Meta.

The rest should be clear why I use them. Feel free to ask whatever question you like.



  1. How would this do against an anti-meta deck?

  2. Well. It is hard to tell. I think it's just a harder and unforgiving battle if you're against an Anti-Meta Deck.

  3. i built it its not so great its just all out and if your oponent can bring JD or dark hole you wont get back field control and you die

  4. can you please make a side deck?

  5. could you play this deck next weekend against me at the 'locals'??

  6. i wanna learn the playstyle of that deck cause i built it

  7. are you still running this deck?
    could you update it?
