Burnin' For You (TCG)

1 vote

Before talking about the deck, I just want to talk about the name. "Burnin' For You" is one of the hits of my favorite band Blue Oyster Cult. They're just incredible. So the only reason I made this deck is to have a name after one of their songs (since Cloyster is not in the cards for Black and White yet). As the name clearly states, this is a deck centered around burning. It's a Fire/Psychic deck. Why Psychic? Well, in terms of deck compo, this gives me access to Chandelure, which is a great fit for the deck. In terms of B.O.C., well the song "Burnin' For You" was part of the same Album (Fire of Unknown Origin) that included the song "Veteran of the Psychic Wars", which is after "Burnin' For You" in the song order for the album.
Now for the deck. The point is to burn the foe, usually with support from Volcarona. Chandelure is the ideal front-man, as it deals additional damage with its ability.
