    Shadow Cannon deck

    Back in my younger days when I played Yugioh I used to play a cannon deck where you could stall your opponent, gather counters over time into the cannon then pop it directly at your opponents life points.

    I have seen the Shadow Cannon card which uses shadow energy to fire it directly at your opponents life points. Just wondering whether anyone has played around with this card? Are there any good and consistent ways to get shadow energy to make a deck work?

    I was thinking cards like Pithing Spear, Shadow Font and Shadow Armor but couldn't find any more.

    I think Shadow Font and Aldmor Accelarator are the most consistent way to gain SE. If you go with Aldmor build, you can use also Darklight Apprentice.
    Other ways to regenerate SE is Sun-Blighted One (mage only), Aldmor Child and Interference (Elemental only).

    Thanks for that. I am going to use Zaladar as his ability can be used as an alternative to Cannon.

    So far the cards I am thinking are below but I am struggling with the Ally pool. If I don't draw allies, most the cards in this deck are expensive so there is a risk of being over run.

    4 x Child of Aldmor - low cost and quick shadow energy.
    4 x Eternal Troll - Hard to get rid of, distraction for opponent and to constantly hit for 2 if left.

    4 x Shadow Cannon - Key card in the deck.
    4 x Shadow Font - Generate energy.
    4 x Mind Control - Get rid of fatties, also works with Shadow Armor as it kills the ally.
    4 x Interference - Activate when opponent has lots of energy to stall them and gain energy.
    2 x Soul Reaper - Heal Hero.
    2 x Energy Discharge - Works with troll and wipes board.
    X - Feedback - not sure how many are required.

    3 x Aldmor Accelerator - Generate shadow energy, Soul Reaper can replenish lost life.

    2 x Shadow Armor - Generate shadow energy.

    For any Shadow Cannon deck, I would just recommend considering -4 shadow cannon.

    Goodluck

    Hmm. This may be fun. I will actually attempt to make a deck based on this. Zaladar has access to a weapon that can net him shadow energy when he deals combat damage. You would most likely have to run this decks similar to stallidar adding cards such as Rain Delay, Armor of Ages, and Evil Ascendant. You could consider Mind Control as a burn card if allies are dropped. I also have an idea of using the location that hastes 2cc allies and combining that with Darklight Apprentice with the Shadow energy draw card along with the card that heals zaladar 2 for bringing an ally out of the graveyard. I commend you for your Uniqueness. We need more people like this in the world lol.

    If Delay's advice isn't enough read this:
    Your goal is to collect SE to cast 4cc thing which uses 4SE to deal 4 damage to one target, instead of using 4 SE to deal 3 damage to two targets.
    Makes sense

    I milled fat Garth with rush Loest. Twice.
    I stalled Moonstaller with Rothem.
    I played Ter with monopoly cards and 4x toll bridge and managed to win a tournament.
    I cast Portal and Kris in one turn and lived to tell the tale.

    Yeah. Looks like you should do 3 shadow cannon or even 2 and just play it as stallizar. Cannon just to give you a little bit more reach. Also playing childish then playing cannon gets you 3 shadow energy. Which is pretty close to what you need to activate cannon for 2 uses back to back.
