The Creative Deck Strategy Showdown – 7

Wow, we’re on 7 of these already? If you’re new here, the CDSS is a digital display of creative decks dueling it out! 32 strategies will enter a knockout bracket, but only one will come out victorious. This event was hosted on my YouTube channel for the site, providing other chances for my creative decks to shine among their peers. This post marks the end of the event and serves as a hub article to visit all 12 videos made to cover the tournament. Lastly, I ask that you leave feedback on CDSS7 in the link provided in the Feedback Warrior section near the end of this article (or here). If you missed out on CDSS1, CDSS2CDSS3CDSS4 , CDSSV, or CDSS6 be sure to check those out too!

Who is participating in CDSS7?

32 different strategies, pulled from recent profiles and strategy guides are the primary participants! From hybrid variants to pure approaches, this list covers a wide swath of undervalued and recent archetypes, and a few themes returned from popular demand! All builds from my past profiles were updated for the TCG format in September 2021 and the known cross-region cardpool, so some of the older strategies have gotten a significant upgrade! For a rundown of the participants and their custom promo art, open the spoiler below!

Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my primary role on the site is to generate non-news content! Let's keep the endless flood of profiles on undervalued archetypes flowing, shall we?
