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.
