Amorphage are cool. I hate that cool archetypes are bad.

DracoFaceOff-BOSH-EN-C-1ELuster Pendulum and Master Pendulum are the LIGHT commanders of the FIRE, WIND and WATER armies of the Igknight, Majespecter and Dinomist. That’s four of the six attributes, where are the DARK and EARTH guys at? The Dracoverlords have DARK covered and our Draconnected EARTH attribute archetype in Shining Victories (SHVI) They’re about on equal power level as Dinomist and unfortunately probably won’t see competitive play. If you don’t know what they do yet, read on and I’ll explain them. Continue reading “Amorphage are cool. I hate that cool archetypes are bad.”

Please don’t play Tellarknights anymore.

Satellarknights debuted in summer of 2014. Back then they were able to compete with the other decks, Shaddolls, Burning Abyss and shortly after, Qliphort. But as time passed and new cards came out, Tellars slowly got power creeped and received a lot of collateral damage. Continue reading “Please don’t play Tellarknights anymore.”

Ryan Pasnik’s 17th Place Mermail Atlanteans

MermailAbyssmegalo-ABYR-EN-ScR-1ERyan Pasnik got 17th at a regional out of 280 players. He played Mermail/Atlanteans. While 17th place isn’t spectacular, it is better than 280th or 33rd. Atlanteans are decent or rather triggering them is. Going into the event Ryan told me he felt confident with “Murmail” as they don’t auto lose to the top decks and turns out he only played meta. His matchups were as follows. Continue reading “Ryan Pasnik’s 17th Place Mermail Atlanteans”

Richards’ and Robertson’s Revolutionary Raidraptors!

Raidraptors is a theme many players aren’t familiar with due to their support being so spread out across sets. But Wing Raiders finally brought the last few pieces the deck needed. If you want, you can read the cards for yourself, but if you don’t know how to read, don’t worry, I’ll cover them here.

Jeff Jones did well because no one knew what Phantom Knights did.

Phantom Knights got third place at the recent UDS! What do you think of Jeff Jones’ list? Is Break Sword worth $40 right now?

The Phantom Knights of Break Sword
Accidently the biggest picture I’ve ever seen. Oops.

Casual Corner: Buster Blader

Welcome to the Yugioh Casual Corner, where I go over a more casual deck that might be able to function at a local level, but more importantly, is fun as hell. Older Yugioh archetypes like Blue-Eyes, Red-Eyes and Black Luster Soldier all received legacy support, but their support was all bad. Now, in Breakers of Shadow, it’s Buster Blader that gets legacy Yugioh support with the Destruction Swords. Some are good, most are bad. But we’re going to build it anyways because this is Casual Corner, damn it.

Building on a Budget: Monarchs

Building on a Budget is a section where I go over a deck that can compete on the local and regional level and is relatively inexpensive. This time, I’m going to talk about Monarchs. And since the structure deck came out recently, that makes it pretty cheap.
