My two cents: Like what others have said, Voitagi (Uragirimono-soul) and
Gakochun (Orschat-soul) can make all the difference in a deck. More Voitagi
then Gakochun, though, seeing as how he's boxable and all.

You've got to be kidding. I don't even have to do outright Dragon either. I
could play Shadowlands and Hitomi Kagetora (because a 5/5 for 7 is cool and
he helps you with RotV). But that is not a Dragon deck, so I won't go into
detail about that on this list.

A corrupt gold scheme isn't required for corruption. 1 or 2 CIMs can make
all the difference. And we don't really need as many low HRs. I figure as
long as I float around 3 or so I'll be fine, but I've yet to do more
conclusive playtesting to prove this theory.
