Hope this was helpful and thanks for reading.

I was talking about this a few days ago. Except, I thought it'd be better to do terms and idioms rather than acronyms and abbreviations. Someone get to work on that.

I've seen some confusion on what GAM means a few times.
Not exactly archetype though, so I don't know under what section you could put it.

I can make a section for Deck-types like Tele-DAD and DDT and stuff I guess.

Even through it's not an acronym I think you might add "Junon = High Priestess of Prophecy".

Some other Acronyms:

A0/Ab. Z. = Elemental HERO Absolute Zero.
AoD= Allure of Darkness.
BoT=Book of Taiyou.
BoE= Book of Eclipse.
BoL= Book of Life.
CcD= Cardcar D.
DtBL: Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive.
IRS=Inferno Reckless Summon.
M7= Constellar Ptolemis Messier 7.
MBaaS= My Body as a Shield.
N-insert any number here-= Number -insert any number here-. Example: N17= Number 17: Leviathan Dragon.
SinCy= Malefic Cyber End.
SinStar= Malefic Stardust Dragon.
SkD= Skill Drain
SoG= Shard of Greed.
Trag= Tragoedia.

this is mostly for new players or people that check the forums or deck construction a lot.

added booster packs with links...would be useful if trying to make a deck for older formats.

Um... personally I call the new Samurai deck "L6S/N": Legendary Six Samurai/Naturia, because most of the cards are "Legendary" or "Shien", and that the extra deck runs at least 2 Naturias. And for Numbers, I use the pound key (#).
