Banlist Excitement and Fears: How Much Should We Actually Worry?

todash19    January 31st 2019

When a banlist is rumored to be released, predictions for what will be hit are always interesting to see. Whether one thinks that Firewall Dragon‘s banning or El Shaddoll Construct‘s freedom is imminent, it is always a mystery how the next banlist will shake up the meta.

The Pendulum Problem

The Pendulum Problem

MapleBlade    January 30th 2019

Pendulum monsters are some of the oddest cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!, boasting multiple effects and applications. There are a ton of moving parts, such as maintaining scales and knowing which combo pieces can survive disruption. Due to this, Pendulum-based decks can be disrupted easily. Additionally, because of their need for a mix of combo pieces and scales, the room in their deck to counteract disruption is limited. For the purpose of this article, I’m going to refer to Pendulum Magicians as currently they are the most relevant Pendulum deck.

Speed Duels – Early Meta and Skills

Speed Duels – Early Meta and Skills

MapleBlade    January 24th 2019

Speed Dueling is a new format that is similar to Duel Links, in that the Deck and playing field is smaller, starting LP is 4000, and players have access to skills. Only “speed duel” cards can be used in this format, which are going to available in Starter Deck: Destiny Masters and Starter Deck: Duelists of Tomorrow. Before we look at the meta-relevant cards in the format and skills, let’s look at what the rules are and how they change from Advanced format.

TCG Meta Snapshot: Trickstar January 2019

TCG Meta Snapshot: Trickstar January 2019

MonoBlueTron    January 21st 2019

The year is 2019. Trickstars have now been meta viable for nearly eighteen months and – remarkably – very little has changed. Since the last time we took a peek at our Fairy friends, builds have cut cheesy win conditions like Chain Summoning for more consistent game-enders like Cyber Dragon and Dinowrestler Pankratops. The deck boasts an impeccable rogue matchup alongside hyper-specific maindeck answers to meta decks. If you’re looking for a deck with staying power, Trickstar remains a viable option.

Sidedecking basics: 3 rules that apply to every format

Sidedecking basics: 3 rules that apply to every format

PRL    January 19th 2019

Sidedecking is oftentimes overlooked as an important part of the game. This is despite the fact that the majority of your games at an event are going to be played after siding. Here we will be looking at the very fundamentals of building a sideboard and why these rules matter. This article is not about the best techs to beat the current meta but rather the tools you can use to side in any meta. This includes the trends at your locals where more people could be on Dinos or Orcust than all the meta decks combined.

The Problem with Overly Diverse Formats

The Problem with Overly Diverse Formats

wiedergeburt    December 19th 2018

A common opinion I see among the Yugioh community is that when a format is diverse, that usually means the format is healthy. Conversely, when the format is healthy, the format is typically diverse. I’d like to critique that claim and talk about instances where we saw healthy diverse formats and where we saw unhealthy diverse formats. Spoiler alert: I would argue that the format we are currently in is an unhealthy diverse format. It’s good that Firewall Dragon got banned, but that doesn’t automatically mean the game is fixed.
