    Introduction
    
    Hello all. My name is Andy and this is my first FAQ. Hopefully I can make it a
    concise and easy-to-read guide to building, in my opinion, a good early deck in
    DM: Sempai Legends. I recently started playing this game and actually used a
    concept from a type of Yu-Gi-Oh! deck my friend thought up. I first picked this
    game up about a month ago and am still enjoying it. I proceded to start a new
    game and decided to try my idea out. And, since I've used GameFAQs so much and
    really enjoy the site, I decided to write an FAQ for the heck of it. So, here it
    goes!

    Deck Strategy
    
    Now that I've got all of that boring stuff out of the way, we can move on to the
    real reason you've come to this FAQ. This is the deck strategy section where I
    tell you how you use it, why it's effective, and so on and so forth.
    
    I got this idea from a friend who was talking to me about a mob rush Yu-Gi-Oh!
    deck and we talked about it for a while when I thought, "Hey, this idea would
    probably work better in Duel Masters." Thus, my Black Flame MR Duel Masters deck
    was conceived. You may ask yourself, "This deck's strongest card only has 5000
    attack power, how can it be effective?" I asked myself the same question. When I
    realized that a creature can only destroy one sheild (excepting the double
    breaker ability), whether it has one thousand or one million power, I knew it
    was an advantage to have three monster that cost two manna rather than one
    monster that cost six. I also soon realized that the opponent can have nine
    monsters in play but, unless one or more is a blocker, you can still attack
    their sheilds. Another reason that the three small monster work better than one
    big one.
    
    This deck is not meant to show off a Gattling SkyTerror destroying your oponents
    last two sheilds or anything like that. It is, in my opinion, the fastest way to
    decide a duel in this game and probably not a shabby deck in a real life
    setting. Like most decks though, it has it's strengths and weaknesses. It's
    strengths: FAST, easy to use, easy to assemble early on in the game. Because of
    this, you can use this deck until you want to upgrade to a better deck or not
    (I'm at Lakeburg and still using this deck, probably for a lot longer too). It's
    weaknesses: slowed down by blockers and time. Blockers are this deck's worst
    enemy, but there are ways around them which I'll explain later. As for the
    latter weakness, imagine this setting. If your opponent is able to summon a few
    monsters with decent attack, they can start taking out your weak, albeit fast,
    monsters. If you can no longer attack their sheilds, then it's open season on
    your's since this deck offers only a few blockers which I mostly use for manna
    fodder anyway. But, your opponent can only summon these monsters if the duel has
    gone on for a while. So the quicker you are, the easier the duel is.
    
    Now, how do we get around our opponents blockers? Usually, I'll use a spell card
    to destroy my opponents untapped creature or I can sacrifice one of my monsters
    to tap it. Usually though, if your enemy can get two or three good blockers out
    on the feild, it's game over for you. Luckily, that doesn't happen too much in
    the game.
    
    Another big question you may have is how much manna should be saved up for this
     deck. I've won many duels using only four, yes four, manna. Ideally you'd want
     six though, but it isn't necessary. However, I would like to advise you to use
     an equal number of both red and black manna for this reason. If you have two
    Immortal Baron Vorgs but your manna count is 1 red and 3 black, you can still
    only summon one of them despite having enough total manna for both. Also, this
    game is unforgiving if you choose the wrong manna for a summon. For instance,
    I'd summon a Bone Spider with 2 red manna and 1 black manna and not be able to
    summon my Deadly Fighter Braid Claw as a result because I left one black manna.
    Moral of the story, think carefully about how you'll allocate your manna. You
    may also ask which cards to use for manna and I'd say it depends. Usually I go
    turn by turn so if that card is not useful to me that turn, it's a candidate for
    manna fodder.
    
    So, in summary, the objective of this deck is to get as many monsters on the
    feild as possible asap and attack the opponent's sheilds directly ignoring their
    monsters on most occasions. Use a spell or sacrifice a monster to get around
    blockers and don't let the duel go on for too long.

    Card List
    
    Here I will list the cards that go into this deck. After that I will talk a
    little about the cards and what they contribute. So ladies and gentlemen, I
    present the Black Flame MR deck!
    
    4 Wandering Braineater
    4 Bloody Squito
    4 Writhing Bone Ghoul
    4 Death Smoke
    4 Bone Spider
    4 Deadly Fighter Braid Claw
    4 Brawler Zyler
    4 Immortal Baron, Vorg
    4 Fatal Attacker Horvath
    4 Crimson Hammer
    
    Well as I said, those first two cards are usually my Black manna fodder. They
    both cost only two manna though so if you need/want a blocker on the feild in
    a hurry, go ahead and do it. All of the other monsters in the deck are quick
    hitters that should be used to attack your opponent's sheilds. I usually use
    Fatal Attacker Horvath as manna fodder just because he costs three manna
    instead of two. As for spells, there is Crimson Hammer which I find incredibly
    useful as it can destroy weak blockers (yay) and it can keep some of your
    opponents early counter attacks from being summoned. There is also Death Smoke
    which is your best blocker counter followed by sacrificing Bone Spider. Death
    Smoke and Bone Spider are probably the only two cards that you'll have any
    amount of trouble obtaining. Many of these other cards are simply thrown at you
    in most booster packs. These two you may have to do a "bet duel" as I call them
    in the card trade center. Until then, I just used my Fire/Dark starter deck I
    got at the beginning of the game and, as I started to get the cards from the
    booster packs, I'd slip them in my deck for some of the more costly monsters so
    it was a gradual change into this current deck. If you want more magic, Burning
    Power is a good card since it boosts attack which may destroy a blocker and only
    costs one manna. A special note, when the oppurtunity presents itself, always
    always ALWAYS summon Deadly Fighter Braid Claw on the first turn if you can.
    When I go first and summon it on the first turn, I win the duel probably 99% of
    the time. This is because you've essentially destroyed two sheilds with one
    card. Just trust me and try it out. Also, NEVER sacrifice Death Smoke for manna
    if you can help it. It's use as a blocker counter is too great to waste on
    manna. Overall, this deck wins about 80 to 85 percent of the time in-game and is
    a good choice for anyone who likes it's meat and potatoes approach and
    effectiveness well into the game.
