So, I have within the past month, I have gotten into playing Yugioh cards with my friends... Hear me out, it's fun. OK, anyway I kinda don't know what to do. I have spent $80 in the past week buying cards and have gotten some good ones for my deck, but my deck is mostly old cards and it is impossible to win against new decks since there are now new monsters called XYZ and Synchro. It changes everything and pretty much makes old monsters pretty much useless. My friends don't have a good deck with the new types of monsters so we got wrecked at a local tournament last Sunday. Now I don't know what to do. I like playing but I would need to spend upwards to $200 buying a competent competitive deck. But we are all leaving for college in the coming up weeks so I don't know when I will get the chance to use them. What if we are done by Spring break or Summer. Plus, the local tournaments are fairly far away (45 mins driving) so it can't be a weekly thing. I can still play online without buying new cards, but I do like that feeling of getting new cards and just having something to show. Let me know what you guys think I should do.
Edit: Thanks for the advice everyone! I will not buy this huge investment. I will try to not get some cards when I go to a store. Thankfully, I can play online for free, which works out the best since I can still play with my friends when we all are gone.
