Removal too easy to use? Gaara's jutsus that bottom decked / sniped / damaged wasn't easy to use?? What about suicidal action?? Missing a drop does not mean you lose in this meta; and it didn't mean that in the O9K meta either.
I could have sworn that the O9K gencon layout was a top 16 of 2 fire decks and 14 O9K variants. If the deck ran the 4 drop Gaara, it was O9K for all I'm concerned. I may be slightly misinformed, but it still does not take away that the game was worse then.
