Pendulums have a common reputation of being the “best deck.” Even if it’s a joke, it’s had its moments in the spotlight as a meta deck. Pendulum has been a polarizing mechanic since its release. That’s due to the power this summoning mechanic can have on paper. It’s the only mechanic that has the power to summon multiple monsters at once. Today, I want to take a look at the history of Pendulums. I will go through the successful Pendulum Decks in the meta and see what each Deck offered. This will help us see how much the Pendulum mechanic took over the meta. Were they the powerhouse they had the potential to be, or did Konami well balance the mechanic?

A month into the new banlist and the dust has settled, revealing dragons as the top deck of the format. If there was any doubt about this, the recently concluded NA Remote Duel Invitational and LCS XII knocked that out of the park. Dragonlink won both tournaments! Today we’ll examine what the Yu-Gi-Oh! competitive scene currently looks like.

In the Yugioh anime, the game of Duel Monsters is based on the ancient Games of Darkness, or Shadow Games. When Pegasus made Duel Monsters, the game revived all of that dark magic and seeped the cards in it. Since then, throughout the early iterations of the franchise, the concept was further expanded upon. Primarily, with the idea of the monsters being alive in the cards and able to manifest in the real world as Spirits.

Ghost Rare is certainly a fan favorite rarity, released all the way back in the GX era. TAEV is where these elusive and shiny cards came to life, after all!
A few years later down the line, they have made brief comebacks in side sets, such as Rage or Ra or Ghosts From the past.

Remote Duels are Konami’s new way of hosting events in the new normal. This is true at least for the near future, as the pandemic is still a global problem. Some locals have been popping back up though, but only a limited amount. Physical play will be a no-go for a while, and so this acts as an okay alternative.

Orcust is a fan-favorite from the Eternal Format (TOSS). Cool artwork, lore, and a great run in the highest levels of competition. The deck definitely had its time in the limelight. Today we examine the ultimate variant that saw the metagame turn on its head.

A sovereign head of state, especially a king, queen, or emperor. That is the definition you get if you look up Monarch. Yu-Gi-Oh is familiar with their own Monarchs, and we can safely say that definition holds true for them. Monarchs are a group of monsters that debuted at the tail-end of Duel Monsters and beginning of GX. Since then, they have given us some of the most powerful tribute monsters in the game. In this series, I will go over the history of Monarchs to see their impact on the competitive Yu-Gi-Oh scene. We’ll analyze each Monarch separately and look at some Decks known for their focus on these powerful cards.

The recent list saw True King of All Calamities (VFD), the most oppressive boss monster of the previous format, get vanished from the game. Being as dominant as it was, all the competitive builds of Virtual World focused on getting 2 level 9’s and slapping it on the board. With its strongest wincon gone, let’s see what Virtual World can do, and if it’s enough to combat the meta.
