Weevil Underwood is not a beloved character in Yu-Gi-Oh! and it is not difficult to see why. But it is a strong competitor. How does your deck fit with Joey’s?
There are many rivalries in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, but one character who seems to have trouble with everyone else is Weevil Underwood, and it’s easy to see why. He constantly causes trouble, cheats in his duels, and throws Exodia into the ocean.
But what are your grief skills like? He seems to be pretty good overall, but he hasn’t defeated any of the main team members yet. This is how his deck would compare to Joey’s in a head-to-head battle.
10 Joey: Your luck
Much of Joey’s deck is made up of luck cards that can really change the flow of battle. This really shouldn’t be the crux of a deck, but Joey’s incredible luck makes it all worth it.
Cards like Graceful Dice and Skull Dice allow you to pull off some strong combos that can certainly come in handy when you need them most. Is this plot armor? Probably. It works? It absolutely does.
9 Weevil: better archetype support
Obviously, the Weevil deck is made up of bug cards only, and this is by design. Every card you have in your deck makes sense and has a greater purpose. It’s no exaggeration to say that Joey’s deck is tied together in the most random way possible. There are all sorts of nonsense that don’t need to be included, but still have a place in your deck regardless.
Weevil understands archetypes better than Joey and his warrior cards.
8 Joey: More to your deck
Because fans have seen more matchups featuring Joey than Weevil, they have a better idea of his entire deck. With that in mind, it seems like Joey actually has a better balance of monster cards, spells, and traps in his deck than Weevil, which is an absolutely shocking thing to say.
Weevil seems to have a greater focus on monsters, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have spells or traps. In fact, the next point in your favor is just that. It has a fantastic combination of insect barrier that it uses.
7 Weevil: Insect Barrier Combo
Weevil uses a card called DNA Surgery that allows him to change all of his opponent’s monster types to insects. From there, he uses a card called an insect barrier that prevents all insects from attacking his side of the field, which can prevent the opponent from attacking at all.
While this combo could easily be destroyed with exactly one Mystical Space Typhoon, no one seems to have that in their deck in the anime for whatever reason.
6 Joey: Gilford the Lightning
Joey has some strong monsters in his deck, and this includes a little card called Gilford the Lightning. Gilford is a two-tribute monster, but his duelist can tribute a third to destroy all monsters on his opponent’s side of the field.
This is a pretty good effect in the long run, but Weevil has a swarming element to his deck that Gilford can really separate in the right setting.
5 Weevil: best boss monsters
To be clear, Weevil’s monsters aren’t actually that great in the real life card game, but they are heavily talked about in the anime. As such, it should be noted that their boss monsters, Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth, and Insect Queen make excellent cards. Both cards cause problems for Yugi and Joey.
Most of Joey’s boss monsters, such as the Red-Eyes Black Dragon, cannot stand up to these monsters. However, Joey has a huge monster that can certainly cause quite a bit of trouble for Weevil and his combos.
4 Joey: Jinzo
Jinzo is a tribute monster that negates the effect of all trap cards while on the field. With 2400 attack points, it can also be difficult to beat him under the right circumstances.
Jinzo is a problem because he can block 1/3 of his deck players, and specifically for Weevil, he will negate DNA surgery, rendering his insect barrier combo useless. This card is going to be one that Weevil will have to find a way to play with.
3 Weevil: mostly better monsters, overall
Joey does something weird with his deck where he uses normal monsters on effect monsters. As mentioned above, all Weevil cards have a purpose in their deck, they make sense.
In Joey’s case, if they swing a sword, he will probably use it. Overall, Weevil’s monsters are likely to be stronger than Joey’s.
two Joey: You don’t need to cheat.
One thing Weevil always does, unfortunately, is cheat in his duels. He stole the rulebook in Duelist Kingdom when he fought Yugi and knew the advantages of the field, and he stuffed a card into Joey’s deck when he dueled to aid him in his insect barrier combo.
Joey may be a dubious duelist in the long run, but he’ll duel with honor. You will not cheat no matter how often your opponents cheat.
1 Weevil: the seal of the orichalcos
One thing Joey never did was use the Seal of Orichalcos on his deck. Despite its soul stealing properties, it did amazing things that really empowered any duelist who used it. Weevil, meanwhile, had no qualms about adding it to his deck.
This letter would certainly have been useful if Weevil had ever used it in a duel against Joey.
