Ultimate Baseball Kid is a common card from Soul of Duelist with the potential to devastate any card that stands in its way. This deck was built around him and can be one of the most lethal fire decks around if done properly. This deck combines the elements of a beatdown with elements of burn decks to give the wielder a choice as to how it runs in situations. Oh one last bit of information, this deck is built in advanced format but should be easily switched to traditional if you feel the need. So without further ado, the deck list:


3 Ultimate Baseball Kid
3 Solar Flare Dragon
3 UFO Turtle
2 Spirit of Flames
2 Gaia Soul the Combustible Collective
1 Raging Flame Sprite
1 Inferno
1 Fox Fire
1 Cyber Jar

3 Last Will
2 Black Pendant
1 Scapegoat
1 Premature Burial
1 Painful Choice
1 Pot of Greed
1 Change of Heart
1 Snatch Steal
1 Creature Swap
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Heavy Storm

2 Waboku
2 Gravity Bind
2 Backfire
1 Magic Cylinder
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Torrential Tribute

Now for some explanations:

Ultimate Baseball Kid is level 3 allowing him to slip under Gravity Bind at any given moment in time. He gains 1000 attack for every other Fire monster on the field and can launch a fire monster to deal 500 damage to your opponent. Solar Flare Dragon is a Fire monster that stalls very well in numbers. It cannot be attacked if there is another Pyro type on field and deals 500 damage to your opponent during each End Phase. UFO Turtle is a Fire type and a searcher making it very versatile in this deck. Spirit of Flames is a Special Summon who turns into a 2000 attacker during your Battle Phase, easy enough to use. Gaia Soul is a great card for a smack down with its 2000 attack and trample effect. Only drawback is that it dies during the End Phase of that turn. Flame Sprite can attack directly and gains 1000 attack every time it does so. Combined with Gravity Bind this card can devastate an opponent. Inferno is probably the card I get asked about the most but it is quite useful. It's a Special Summon, that can give you field advantage, 1900 defense it’s commendable in today’s meta-game. A weak attack but a useful effect, if it destroys an opponents monster they take 1500 damage. It's best used on defense monsters that have been forced that way by Bind or fear of UBK. Fox Fire is there for Special Summoning and stall its effect keeps it in play and can haunt your opponent while they look for an opening. Cyber is self explanatory, draw and summoning.

Last Will combos well with Gaia and UBK. They send monsters to the grave and you get one more in its place. Great for speed. Black Pendant has been dubbed the Two-Edged Sword, beat and burn in one lovely little package. Scapegoat can save your LP for a turn or two while you gather your arsenal. Premature is reborn for a fee but with the ban there's nothing better. Painful Choice can dump monsters for Spirit, Inferno, or Premature and can thin your deck down to the cards you need. Pot is for drawing power.
Change of Heart/Snatch Steal/Creature Swap are all field advantage cards to give your opponent a nice slap with their own monsters. MST/Heavy Storm are to prevent Traps for breaking up the nice control this deck gives.

Waboku is an all around live saver, and if you don't already know, I suggest you find out how to wield it properly. Gravity Bind can stall your opponent and give you a nice time to use UBK, Sprite, or Flare. Backfire adds to the burn aspect, they destroy a monster and they take 500, easy enough. Cylinder is self explanatory and almost a necessity in any deck.
Call of the Haunted is also reborn but in a convenient Trap form. Torrential is to clear the field if they ever get an advantage, you can always use the monsters in grave...

Well that’s it on this deck. It can beat your opponent into submission using its attack increasers or burn them to ashes using a combination of cards. I hope you enjoyed the article and I shall be writing more soon.
