Approaching our last events before Goat Format World Championships, Chaos decks seems to be the dominating force of the format. Last time I provided a deck (Cat Control) with a solid aggressive strategy that was focused on making it very hard for meta decks to gain advantage out of our cards. Dragon Control is another approach of making interaction very hard for opponents while playing aggressively.
Dragon Control has a lock down based approach based on blanking a very big amount of opposing cards while providing big threats to close out games. It is still sort of a control strategy but it takes the 'quality over quantity' concept very far.
Goat Format Championship 10: Last Chance Qualifier will be taking place on September 26th and finish on the 27th. GFC 10 will be the LAST GFC before the Goat Format World Championship taking place in October. There will be a few changes for the final GFC of the season, GFC 10 sign ups will begin on September 25th, round one of GFC 10 will begin at 8:00 AM Eastern on September 26th, all Top 4 players will receive invitations to the Goat Format World Championship. (Invites will still not be passed down.)
As always entry is Free, games will be played on Duelingbook.com, sign ups will be taken on our Discord in #tournaments, and we will be streaming the event live on Twitch.tv
During this year, I spent a good amount of time working on deckbuilding, trying to go in-depth on Goat Format, and trying out different strategies and approaches to these strategies.I played a bunch of them with some success, and I often get asked how I manage to do so well with non meta decks.
Well, the secret isn't some ultra skill, but mainly good deck building and making good meta game choices. I'm going to post decks I consider good to be played in the current format, and provide material to explain how they work. In the articles that follow, I will provide videos of game play, interactions with different match-ups and a more in-depth guide to the decks themselves.
The Goatformat Championship 9 tournament was held on August 22nd and saw fifty-seven players battle it out for a chance to play in October’s world championship event. The Challonge bracket for the event can be found here. If you want to see the action yourself, take a look at the Youtube video. Goatformat.com would like to thank all participants, and everyone that helped to run the event. Congratulations to Prowaite for his first place finish and qualification for the world championships. Additional congratulations to Zazzles for getting 2nd place and his own spot at worlds!
