So, with the recent inclusion of traits and the constant allusions to Blue Frieza in the build-up to set 10, I thought I'd go back to the Galactic Emperor and have a try at crafting him a deck for the modern format. ... except I have no idea what style to play him in, or even what style really benefits him the most. My thoughts mostly went back and forth between Blue Tag and Orange Ret/Combat. My thoughts with the former was mostly imitative of an old deck a friend used to play, going for King Cold ASAP and using HFIL/Golden Frieza to drop a Cooler/Chilled turn 1 (or really whatever other ally you want to tech in) so that our opponent cannot level you out of Golden. His variant played very defensively, and did an excellent job of rejuv'ing Frieza's banished zone while slowly building up speed to start dropping insane Supernovas in the late game. The latter was just an idea I was playing with, making use of Orange Sword Chop to net Frieza's Arrogance to your hand while using a handful of attacks that swing twice. This one mostly just lets you keep up defense while using Frieza's respectable PLs to really do some damage, and would rely minimally on any actual drills. Plus, Retribution + HFIL lets me just go and grab a drill of my choice as my first action in a combat, or even save it until my opponent is done swinging to net something I want to keep around, or I can forfeit my instant level up and build up from Frieza's level 1 for a chance at MPPV. But then I decided to go through the Set 10 cards, and I noticed Red Announcement. And how nicely that fits into Frieza's themes. And the fact that Red has just as many, if not more, attacks that stay in play to be used twice. Plus, I've seen the havoc this combo can pull from when my aforementioned friend was trying to find a home for his own Frieza, where he was able to go into combat on turn 3 and deal easily upwards of 32-ish life cards of damage because he'd just pushed me into such a corner with the endless assault of energy attacks. And all of this theory-crafting has left me where I am now; Wondering where the hell post-Set 10 Frieza should set-up shop and start trying to deal out the hurt. After all, Frieza has (on the surface) all the tools for a hyper-aggressive deck whether you level jump or try to grind up to MPPV. What are people's thoughts, and does anyone have experience with trying to build Frieza since set 10? Should I give up on the prick and turn my attention to his ever-rejuvenating brother, who may have very well gained more from Torturous Volley and King Cold? After all, a Red MPPV Cooler could be MEAN.
