Deck of the day: Metalfoes Yang Zing

baxiabrightnessoftheyangzing-duea-en-scr-1eEverybody likes dragons, right? I don’t know what it is about dragons but everybody thinks they’re cool. Even my two-year-old that doesn’t know the difference between dragons and dinosaurs likes them. Unfortunately, today is not about dragons. Duelist Alliance brought us Shaddolls and Tellars, that use Fusion Summoning and Xyz Summoning, respectively. The TCG also got Burning Abyss, a second Xyz archetype but this was Rank 3 focused. Later we would get Qliphorts, a Pendulum archetype and Nekroz, a Ritual archetype. All of these decks were at least competitive. Where is the Synchro archetype? Konami messed up with Yang Zing. They’re Wyrm-Type and are the DUEA Synchro archetype. Now that they have Denglong and Metalfoes, is it time for them to compete? Let’s learn how the deck works.

Set review: Invasion: Vengeance part 2

inov-boosterenWelcome back to part two of the INOV set review. Part one covered all of the secret, ultra and super rares, while part two is the rares and commons. Anything without a competitive rating, I don’t expect to be competitive. If I miss or overlook anything, let me know, I can’t know everything. Cards that weren’t in Japan’s INOV will be marked with WP for World Premier, meaning they’re TCG Exclusives or OCG imports. Let’s go. Continue reading “Set review: Invasion: Vengeance part 2”

The majority of voters did not vote for Donald Trump

trumpshoosA majority of voters did not vote for Donald Trump. How does that relate to Yugioh? It doesn’t. I’m sorry avid readers, this article is not about Yugioh, not even Magic. Today we have the presidential election results between Clinton and Trump. It doesn’t matter now who you voted for or who you wanted to win because Trump won. Maybe something will happen like Trump gets assassinated but that would just leave another Republican in his place. Seriously, what presidential candidate would pick someone from the opposite party to be their VP? Also, wishing people dead isn’t nice, even if they look like one of the new Pokemon. Let’s look at the data, the broken U.S. Voting system and how The Donald stole Christmas won the election.

Set review: Invasion: Vengeance part 1

inov-boosterenIt’s finally time for the INOV set review. For those new here, the usual structure is fairly simple, I go over 40 cards, then the next 40, then the 20 WP cards at the end but this time I’m going to do it a little differently. I’m going to go over the eight secrets, 10 ultras and 14 supers in part one, and then in part two, the 18 rares and 46 commons. It leads to longer articles but I think that fewer parts are better. The World Premier cards (WP) are going to be marked, meaning they’re OCG imports or TCG exclusives (for now.) Cards without a competitive rating aren’t viable. Let’s go. Continue reading “Set review: Invasion: Vengeance part 1”

Magic: Modern Dredge

gravetrollToday I want to talk about Dredge. I’ve seen a lot of primers and other guides on the internet but most of them were before Eldritch Moon and all of them were before Kaladesh. If you’re interested in playing the deck, or want to see the best ways to beat it, read on. Yugioh players, I’m sorry, this is a Magic article. Continue reading “Magic: Modern Dredge”

ABC really builds itself (and is not cheap)

abcdragonbuster-sdks-en-ur-1eINOV is coming out and so is my set review for that but I want to look at a truly tuned ABC list. ABC is not super powerful, it’s just a weak Rank 4 deck with the added benefit of summoning ABC-Dragon Buster, which is a really good card, that makes the deck really good. Geargia had a stronger Rank 4 engine but couldn’t summon 3k beaters for free. Although, Geargia had Geargiagear and isn’t really a fair comparison. I miss good Geargia. But that’s irrelevant to this discussion, so let’s talk about tuning a deck list, specifically ABC. Continue reading “ABC really builds itself (and is not cheap)”

Deck of the day: Fullmetalfoes post INOV

fullmetalfoesfusion-inov-en-1e-opIf you’re playing the best deck, you have the highest chances of winning. It’s just that simple. There are other factors that play into your win percentage, like your focus, skill with the deck, skill at the game in general, and whether or not you’re confident or feel like you’re going to lose every match today. If all other factors were the same, there is still a ‘best deck,’ but I’m not sure if it’s ABC, Metalfoes or some kind of Metalfoes Majespecter build. Regardless of what is actually the best, I want to talk about Metalfoes today and what the deck is capable of doing. Continue reading “Deck of the day: Fullmetalfoes post INOV”

What should you be packing in your side deck for ABC and Metalfoes?

Everyone is on that ABC hype train, and with good reason. I don’t think it’s the deck that can do the most powerful things, but it is fairly resistant to hate, especially post INOV. What hate is there? What other decks are out there? Today let’s take a peek at what the meta is going to look like after Invasion: Vengenace drops. Continue reading “What should you be packing in your side deck for ABC and Metalfoes?”

Card of the day: Dimensional Barrier

dimensionalbarrier-inov-en-1e-opInvasion: Vengence and the new structure decks that drop today bring a lot of things to the table. The structure decks bring ABC and INOV has some notable cards. I talked about Vermillion Dragon Mech before and today it’s time for a new staple to shine. That new staple is Dimensional Barrier and it really is going to have a heavy impact on any deck that uses Rituals, Fusions, Synchro, Xyz or Pendulums to any notable degree. But what does it do? Is it actually that good? Continue reading “Card of the day: Dimensional Barrier”
