Upon release, Drytron instantly jumped on the podium of meta-dominating decks. Having access to non-once per turn cards such as Cyber Angel Benten and a consistency failsafe in the form of Union Carrier made it difficult to stop. At least up until the hits came. A couple of banlists and support cards later, the deck finds itself in a much less powerful position. Let’s examine the deck, what it does, and the overall sentiment about it around the community.

We’ve all seen it. The most engage-ing Forbidden and Limited list in a while. Elpy and Drident hit the Graveyard. Miscellaneousaurus and Striker Dragon got cut down, and the almighty Engage has been freed (among other things).

Lightning Overdrive officially releases June 4th this year. It is an understatement to say that it bears some cards that will change the landscape of the current meta-game. It isn’t Rise of the Duelist level, which gave us Infernobles, Dogmatika, Schism, and ridiculously great staples. However, it brings the power and consistency levels of two specific decks to a peak that will surely shake the foundations of competitive Yu-Gi-Oh! as we know it. Let’s take a look at what it’s going to bring, and what handtraps are going to be run to adjust to it.
