VayuZombie & Lego Block explained

Take two broken things and duck tape them together...
In my previous post I mentioned something called the Lego Block approach.
It's what I call when you take multiple deck engines (Zombie, DHero, ect.), simplify them as much as possible and then try out diffrent combinations of 2 or more.

Example of simplified Zombie (synchro) engine:
2x Mezuki
2x Goblin Zombie
1x Plaguespreader Zombie
1x Zombie Master

A overkill good example of this approach is Dale Bellidos DBZ deck (DarkBlackwingZombie). Where he took the DHero engine, the Vayu engine and Zombie engine and stuck them all together.

Looks bad on paper...
Ok now for an example of a whole deck. This is one of my not online real life TCG decks on which I have been working on since ages ago the new banlist.
My Grave Flag (VayuZombie) deck:

Monsters: 20
1x Dark Armed Dragon

1x Gorz the Emissary of Darkness 
1x Blackwing - Gale the Whirlwind
2x Blackwing - Sirocco the Dawn
2x Blackwing - Vayu the Emblem of Honor
2x Dark Grepher
2x Goblin Zombie
2x Mezuki
2x Necro Gardna
1x Armageddon Knight
1x Sangan /
Mystic Tomato
1x Plaguespreader Zombie
1x Zombie Master
1x Morphing Jar

Spells: 13
3x Burial from a Different Dimension
2x Foolish Burial
2x Allure of Darkness
1x Brain Control
1x My Body as a Shield
1x Heavy Storm
1x Lightning Vortex
1x Mystical Space Typhoon
1x Reinforcement of the Army

Traps: 7 

2x Bottomless Trap Hole
2x Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1x Call of the Haunted
1x Solemn Judgment
1x Torrential Tribute

3x Blackwing Armed Wing
2x Blackwing Armor Master
1x Blackwing - Silver Wind the Isolated
1x Ally of Justice Catastor
1x Black Rose Dragon
1x Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
1x Doomkaiser Dragon
1x Goyo Guardian

1x Colossal Fighter
1x Thought Ruler Archfiend
2x Stardust Dragon

One of the decks strengths aside from Burial abuse is that it can play diffrently from game to game. One game it can play like a vayu turbo deck, while somtimes you don't even see vayu in a game and the zombie aspect shines. 

Choices, choices, so many choices...
The deck is not yet finnalized so I'll be talking about some of the card choices that are.

 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
Gets rid of annoying cards like Collossal Fighter & can discard key cards (Mezuki, Vayu, ect.), there by setting up for a swarm. And if needed it can get rid of cards like royal oppression.

Necro Gardna 
With the deck already running both Dark Grepher & Burial from a Different Dimension this is quite a logical choice. This card helps you survive your opponents attacks, protects key monsters like dark grepher and serves as a payment for all the discard costs this deck has.

Lightning Vortex
Has similar pros and cons as Phoenix Wing Wind Blast but can net you massive card advantage by punishing overextension that is often made by decks like sacksworn Lightsworn.

Oh noes its kryptonite...
The decks weeknesses are cards that either remove cards from the graveyard or that prevent you from removing cards from the graveyard.

Kycoo, The Ghost Destroyer
Soul Release

The deck has ways  of getting oround those problems but these cards can still do game braking amounts of damage.

Closing thought:
With the introduction of Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier in Hidden Arsenal this deck will gain a very very big tremendous power bost, so watch out for this deck or it might rape take you from behind by suprise.
