“Mathmech” is a new archetype of Cyberse monsters introduced in Mystic Fighters. They are warriors based around mathematical symbols and concepts. The Main Deck monsters have effects tied to their namesake. These effects synergise to power up the Extra Deck monsters.

Hunting for my nationals invite brought me to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center on January 4th for the Chicago Regional. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure I wanted to play the event until around two days before. The format to me has become stale, which nearly dissuaded me from playing, but friends from my locals convinced me otherwise. I decided to play the deck I’ve played most this format: Lost World Dinos.

With the new Master Rule Revision coming in April, duelists can once again summon Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz monsters to the Main Monster Zones without using Link arrows. This means that many decks that relied on these monster types in the past are now free to play unhindered.

Recently, I attended the Las Vegas regional in hopes to earn an invite. It was my first regional of the new season and it turned out to be a great success! With 2 losses throughout the day, I ended up placing 12th in the 245 player regional. It was a total of 8 rounds of swiss. I played what many players would think is the best deck of the format: Sky Striker Orcust. I was originally going to play Pendulum or Mekk-Knight, but I opted for a deck that can perform well going first or second.

Various rogue decks continue to take tops at high-tier events, and not just the Dracos and Pendulums of old. This time, we got to see Kristijan Mašic take Magical Musketeers to the top 32 of YCS Milan. Let’s take a look at his deck and see what he did to get this far.

These days, it isn’t enough to destroy Spells and Traps and send them to the GY. For example, Orcustrated Babel can add itself back to the hand from the GY. Salamangreat Balelynx can protect Will of the Salamangreat from Twin Twisters or Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. However, Cosmic Cyclone banishes these cards with a simple cost of 1000 LP. Since its release in late 2016, this amplified Mystical Space Typhoon has been seeing use through various formats.

Of all the decks expected to make a showing in the top cut of Pro-Play Tour: Dallas, Gladiator Beasts were probably near the bottom of the list. However, Yobani Martinez defied expectations by placing in the top 8 with Glad Beasts, using a rather unusual variant of it at that. Let’s take a look at the cards and strategies he employed to get so far in the tournament.

HEROes have been getting a lot help lately. A combination of hot new releases and surprising unlimits of old staples have put the deck in a better place than it’s been in for a few years. In particular, the recent Sao Paulo, Honolulu, and Sacramento regionals have all seen HERO tops, taking first place in Honolulu.
