As I proceeded to clean newly spilled chocolate milk off of my rare folders, I praised God for the inventor of clear protective sleeves. I also though, “Why do I have so many rares that I don’t use?” Most decks use a few rares, and some decks do use more than others, but Vs. has yet to make it to the state of Yu-Gi-Oh where its players shell out a fortune for the most competitive decks.

I decided instead to build the Spider-Friends version I talked about in the first installment of my “It’s a Miracle!” two-parter. To flesh out the deck I took elements from Dan Debenham’s deck that top-eighted at the last Mega Weekend. Here’s the build:
