When you guys build your decks, what the ratio of Monster, Spell and Trap cards you'd use? (AKA How many of each type of card would you have in a deck)
Me, usually I'd try to keep it around 20-10-10 (Monster-Spells-Traps) in a 40-card deck. I did make a couple of decks that have more Spells than Traps, and I may be feeling that that's leaving me pretty open for attack because I don't really have anything to stop it except a couple of "Book of Moon" cards.
Again, what do you think is the best Monster-Spell-Trap ratio to make a deck?

i'd normally go for a 22-10-8 or a 22-9-9 but it changes alot if its a specific deck e.g 3 of each crystal beast or lightsworns the deck im running at the mo is 24-9-9 because i need all the cards there for it to work
Depends on the deck of course, I run a fifth gadget that is 15-14-16, I run a Zombie City that is 18-6-17. For more normal battle-oriented decks I seem to come out around 20 monsters to 21 spells and trap, usually around 12-13 spells and 8-9 traps. Of course more control oriented means more traps, and more battle oriented more spells (like in a decree deck, obviously trap count is minimal, like 4 traps to 16-17 spells. But for some reason i like 41 cards with 20 monsters as a base. Don't ask me why. Just feels comfortable.
stall decks are usually most effective with a roughly 1:1:1 ratio... or at least that's what's been working the best for me. my usual decks are like everyone else's with about 20 monsters and the rest are s/t.
