June 2017 Forbidden & Limited List

We’re faced with another Forbidden & Limited List update. I’m hesitant to call anything an emergency because Konami knows what’s going on with the meta, especially in the TCG because OCG is ahead of us. Regardless, we’ve got a new list going into effect June 12. JUNE! We never get lists ahead of time anymore, it’s strange. That’s over three weeks away.

March 31st 2017 Forbidden & Limited List Update (TCG ban list)

It’s been over six months since we had our last updated F&L list. They banned Monkeyboard back then. Do you remember when Performapals were a problem for six months? Well, there are some interesting moves this time. Let’s go. Continue reading “March 31st 2017 Forbidden & Limited List Update (TCG ban list)”

Card/Deck of the day: Treatoad and Froggos + New OCG October 1st Forbidden & Limited list update

here-come-dat-boiI have so much disdain for the TCG/OCG divide. It’s not good for the game. I believe it’ll be part of Yugioh’s eventual downfall if it doesn’t change. But it exists, and like YCS prize cards and inconsistent F&L lists, I have to deal with it because I love the game. Treatoad exists. Japan got it July 9th and we will get it in November. People will have been hyping Treatoad for more than four months when it finally releases. And by the time it releases, no one will care. But this is the casual Yugioh community. Continue reading “Card/Deck of the day: Treatoad and Froggos + New OCG October 1st Forbidden & Limited list update”

Top 10: Decks for the September 2016 format

We have a new F&L list, which I already talked about. If you’re new to Yugioh, that means everyone is scrambling to find new decks because the list shook everything up. In reality, this past list didn’t shake things up too much. Konami hits things on the F&L list in cycles to push new products. Allow me to explain.

The August (actually September) 2016 Forbidden & Limited List

14051629_1335924283114204_5439693548433692646_nFor most people, Christmas only comes once a year. As a kid, I never found Christmas exciting because I knew everything about it. I knew when it was, how that morning would go and pretty much exactly what everyone was going to get. The F&L lists are always exciting. We never know when they’re going to come anymore and we never know what’s going to be on it. I’ve heard a lot about this latest list, but it isn’t a meta nuke like many claimed.  Continue reading “The August (actually September) 2016 Forbidden & Limited List”

New July 1st OCG Forbidden & Limited List

Japan has a new Forbidden & Limited list. Literally, only four cards moved. I guess that means Konami of Japan is doing a better job of balancing the game as of late? I don’t know. I’m not sure how the decisions are made. I’m not part of Konami. Let’s take a quick look. Continue reading “New July 1st OCG Forbidden & Limited List”

Official April 11th 2016 Forbidden & Limited List!

The official April 11th list was just released. A few surprising changes, many unsurprising changes for the better of the game. RIP in pepperoni pepe. I know, everyone calls it DracoPals, but still. Womp. Is the format going to be Kozmo vs BA now? Both leaked lists were BS, not surprising. But finally! We have the list at last! I really hate that we don’t have set dates anymore…

Leaked April 18th Forbidden & Limited List (It’s probably fake, I know)

So we got another presumably fake list. Before everyone says it’s fake before saying anything else, let me reason with you. This list is likely not real, but let’s talk about it pretending it is. Then we can talk about what we think of the changes if it were the real list. Continue reading “Leaked April 18th Forbidden & Limited List (It’s probably fake, I know)”

April 1, 2016 OCG Forbidden & Limited List

The Forbidden & Limited list effective April 1, 2016 in the OCG was announced in V-Jump or something. I don’t know any Japanese, but NeoArkadia does, or something. I’m just going to cover what I think these changes might mean for the TCG. I don’t play OCG and I’m sorry for not offering insightful insight to this list for OCG players. I simply don’t have the time and brainpower to talk about the OCG at this time.
