[INFO] Updated DT guide

Hi, I'm badna0, and I'm a pretty avid DT player. Not a tournament Victor (yet), but have managed respectable top 10 finishes, a few top 5's, and a personal best of 803 bp. I'd like to give a few pieces of advice for dt's.

Trying to improve on the previous iteration of this guide: http://www.urban-rivals.com/en/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=0&id_subject=2049903&subject_page=0#answers

Since the abolishment of T1/T2, I don't feel a lot of the DT rules mentioned in the guide are as relevant as they used to be. I'd like to outline a few principles for constructing and playing a good DT deck.


1. Building a deck: Aiming for a higher star count (27-30-ish stars) is usually a good idea. A good deck simply needs several nukes with good round winning potential in order to put 2hko pressure.

Links to good decks:
First Place-In Spyke We Trust V2 (standard)
DT Standard Conquered (standard)
E PER LA PRIMA VOLTA!!!!!! (extended)
The strongest decks that I've seen have these higher star counts. Notice how some of these decks can be relatively cheap, too. (

Sorry badna0 it wasnt infiniti who wrote the guide. it was you. sorry. well ill repost..

hi badna0!!! that's an amazing guide. i have a few questions though.
why didnt you consider La Junta as one of the best decks in t2? it seems a lot are using them.
what's the best number of stars for std and ext tournament? 31* can be paired with decks up to 41* hence greater possibility of maxing out the points for winning with fewer stars. but the downside is, it's much harder to win. while 30* could only be paired up to 35*, greater win percentage but lower possiblity of pairing with a higher star count.

I replied to this via PM, but the gist of the response (for any who are interested) is:
La Junta are excellent in DT, I merely didn't reference them in the post. At the moment, the core of that deck is Isatis/Raven/Arnie/Bryan. Solid
deck and lots of KO pressure.
In terms of number of stars: play with the most amount of stars you can win consistently with. A high starred deck for you and your opponents increases the possibility of 50/50s and 2hkos. If you're really good at playing hands with huge star disadvantages, then go for it; it's probably safer to play a slightly lower deck and take the higher win percentage, though.
