Complete Deck Lists by Type

This deck is considered a Classic Deck, this page is used to tell the history of a deck rather than how it is played now. This can happen either from mechanics of the game changing, changes from the "TCG" or "OCG" Forbidden/Limited List, or the deck has slowly lost it's ability to be played over time due to years of no support or neglect.

A Goat Control Deck centers around using "Metamorphosis" on "Magician of Faith" or a "Sheep Token" to summon "Thousand-Eyes Restrict". "Tsukuyomi" is also a vital card to this Deck, as it allows you to re-use "Thousand-Eyes Restrict's" effect.

Goat Control Decks became practically dead after the September 2005 Forbidden and Limited Lists, when "Scapegoat", "Metamorphosis" and "Thousand-Eyes Restrict" were all Limited. After the September 2006 Lists, the Deck became completely obsolete in the Advanced Format, since both "Tsukuyomi" and "Thousand-Eyes Restrict" became Forbidden. "Magician of Faith" and "Metamorphosis" have also been Forbidden since.

There are many players who play the goat control format for fun, and recently Tournaments in the Format have begun to surface.

In September 2012, "Tsukuyomi" became Limited, but other key cards of the deck, such as "Thousand-Eyes Restrict", remained Forbidden, still rendering this deck unplayable. However, in September 2013, "Scapegoat" became Unlimited. In January 2014, "Magician of Faith" became Limited in the TCG, and eventually Unlimited. In April 2015, both "Sinister Serpent" and "Ring of Destruction" became Limited with watered-down effects. One year later, "Thousand-Eyes Restrict" became Limited, and eventually Unlimited. To this day, "Metamorphosis" still remains Forbidden.
