And you can quote me on this.
To me, netdecking is fine in most regards. I find that there are netdecker demographics, and I’ll talk about those later. But on the whole, netdecking is no big deal.
At Coliseum, we have a saying, and it goes like this: “If you borrow cards from the shop but build your own deck, that’s cool. Or if you netdeck and get all of your own cards, that’s cool too. But if you both borrow your cards AND netdeck, what the fuck did YOU do?” This if often said in reference to a lot of the PTQ players from CoolStuff, who will literally rent cards from the shop to play in PTQs, often times running netdecks with the slightest alterations, and more often than not, fail.
Now don’t get me wrong, I still think netdecking is fine. I have a personal grudge against these guys, it has nothing to do with their ability as players. It is simply fact, they often go to PTQs with these decks, place somewhere in the top 50, and get sent home empty handed.
Now, this leads me into the demographics of netdeckers, and I’ll even provide example stories for each one. And I wish that these stories weren’t 100% true.
