I got this from Pojo and thought I should bring it here. It seems intresting so please do comment. This isn't a CC vs. originality thread. The term "originality" is being used extremely loosely on these forums. People say "I run original decks" when in reality they don't, not be a longshot. "Unconventional" is the right term. And this isn't really about using the correct term over people thinking they're innovative. XYZ decks aren't original. Plant decks aren't original. Fire decks aren't original. Wind decks aren't original. E-Hero decks aren't original. Archfiend decks aren't original. Frog decks aren't original. Ojama decks aren't original. Gaia decks aren't original. Dark Magician decks aren't original. Red-Eyes decks aren't original. Single random tech card A doesn't in your CC deck isn't original. And throwing a bunch of random incohesive themes together to make a deck isn't original. Soul Control WAS original. Zombies that side into Trap Dustshoot/Mind Crush beatdown WAS original. Pacman/Camel Control WAS original. Magical Explosion OTK WAS original. Skill Drain/DW with a Rat Engine IS original. Royal Magical Library/IRS WAS original. Tundo Equalizer WAS original. Burn/Stein WAS original. The point is, it just irritates me to see people post their themed deck and tout themselves as original as if they said "hey...this card's called X-Head Cannon...this card's called Y-Dragon Head and it equips to X-Head Cannon...and Z-Metal Tank and it equips to X-Head Cannon and Y-Dragon Head...ZOMG I KNOW. I'LL MAKE A DECK BASED ON ALL THESE CARDS!!!11111 WHY HASNT ANYONEZ THOUGHT OF THAT!!!11111" Yes, that Wind deck is unorthodox. But it's as unoriginal as Chaos Return. Anyone else feel the same way?
