I suppose it all started with ACP launching GoatFormat.com, the main feature of which was a ranked ladder for Goat Format that didn’t exist on DuelingBook.com’s own functionality. Fast forwarding back to recent months, after playing standard Goat Control for a while, I guess I got bored and decided to make my own deck. I had seen that Jay had success with a Reasoning Gate Combo deck but, with knowledge of various combo decks from my years playing current format, I was pretty convinced that a lot of the cards he played just shouldn’t even be in the deck.
Pro Play Games holds a (current format) tournament series called the "Pro Play Tour." The good news is that now all of their Pro Play Tours will include a Goat Format side event on Sunday. All of the info can be found in the image below. Thanks, Pro Play Games, for helping us grow the Goat Format community.
As a Goat Control player, you cannot rely on achieving a high winrate by winning control mirrors alone. Anti-Meta Warriors, as popularized by Yu-Gi-Oh! players like Calvin Tahan and spankthemonkey, will not be leaving the meta anytime soon and is built to attack Goat Control specifically. One of our most important tools in this matchup will be the sidedeck, which is the focus of this article.
This was a tournament hosted by Format Library. 18 players were in attendance.
We always have to make sure that we're doing right by the Goat Format community, which is why we open up our big ideas for feedback before they're implemented. Please read our proposal and give us your thoughts.
During our last survey, the main feedback that we got was that players wanted a free and no-strings-attached way to play in Goat Format tournaments that awarded money to the top finisher. After that, we ran a free $20 tournament as an experiment to see how players would like it. The feedback that we got was quite positive. In fact, there were no complaints about how the tournament was run.
In order to be able to grow the Goat Format community while not going broke ourselves, we'd like to alternate each month between a free tournament, followed by one only available to donors via Patreon. There will, however, be alternate ways to qualify for the big Patreon tournament. Read on for more details and the survey.
What is Beastdown?
Beastdown, often known as “Zoo”, is a Yu-Gi-Oh! Goat Format deck that is distinguished by its aggressive beast and beast-warrior monsters: 3 Berserk Gorilla and 2-3 Enraged Battle Ox in particular. There are a few different directions that the deck can be taken from there, but all of them focus on aggression first and foremost.
Much has changed since the last time that we posted ratings, and yet much has stayed the same. A few players racked up some incredibly high elo scores only to lose them shortly after. For sure, ranked play can be a grind. Check out who our lastest group of top10 players is!
