Summoning Mechanic Evolution/Gimmick Part 2 – Fusions

Summoning Mechanic Evolution/Gimmick Part 2 – Fusions

October 19th 2020 by Avatar rebornthejam

Konami has released many Special Summoning techniques. These are Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, Pendulum and Links. Over the years, the mechanics have evolved, giving new interaction and gameplay. Sometimes, the anime provides these evolutions semi-official terms. Other times, they are treated as a gimmick. This article will be one of the six-part series looking at the evolution for each summoning mechanic. Some of these evolutions haven’t appeared in the real game yet. I will also be using the terms from the anime to describe the evolutions.

In answering this question, it will provide insight into the factors that make up “tempo” in Yugioh.

Datascape was first introduced into the OCG as several promotional cards with an unknown focus on the level 3, which was then promptly released as a collection of several other support cards in Phantom Rage, causing it to suddenly be one of the most expensive and annoying decks to build.

As the new era of Yugioh ushers in without introducing another summoning method, we are left to continue revising the prior summoning aspects which we are already familiar with. However, one archetype completely rejects the notion of Extra Deck summoning: the medieval clan of Dogmatika.

September 26th 2020 by Avatar Renren

It’s been quite a while since we took a look at Starstrike Blast! We’ve barely scratched the surface of this set. There’s certainly still plenty of gems to check out so let’s dive deep into this relic of the 5Ds era! Nearly over a decade after its release, it’s quite famous for hosting cards that aged well, a trait that the other 5Ds sets share.
