Well, to answer your question, The Best Build is a weekly contest created by yours truly to which you create a build with the weekly theme (and following the rules while doing so of course), and a set of judges will decide which one is, the Best Build. The thread will be posted Sunday, and results will be up the next Sunday!
*You will send your build to Apple Juice via PM once you have finalized it in this format:
Deck Name:Deck Creator:Deck Cost:[amount of cards] Monsters:[amount of cards] Spells:[amount of cards] Traps:[amount of cards] Extra:Final Price:
Please get your builds in to me via PM by FRIDAY!
Do you win anything?
You win... bragging rights! And also, a graphic claiming your accomplishment. (maybe later on, an emblem? ideas, ideas). ALSO, the winner of last week's competition gets an honorable mention and decides next week's theme.
EDIT: Digi-kun *might* be able to get us an emblem.
So, who are the judges?

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy this week's TBB!

What does it mean by "before 2009"? Does it mean the most current printing of the card, or the card's original release? If it is the latter, then the card pool is narrow indeed, but if it is the former I am completely fine with it.
Also, I think maybe two-week-long building periods are necessary? Both to prevent people from missing submissions and to allow more time (i. e. we get weekends!) to test out the build... And furthermore, everyone is winning just "by default", so perhaps a longer period is needed.
