We are currently in a product lull and with no new cards until May I have decided to go through a few older decks. Let me know if there are any decks you would like me to cover. Thanks to Atlanta_Reign for recommending Serpent Night Dragon/Nightmare Sonic Blast on my last article.Read more
Duel Overload was officially released on March 20th, 2020 and within the set was 56 new cards. DUOV also includes 30 new Link Monsters for different strategies. You have many of these cards that are certainly good at the moment of release. Crystron Halqifibrax immediately comes to mind. Then you got those cards that might not be at their peak power level. Whether that’s due to pending support, new releases, or a card’s usefulness going up.
Here, I would like to discuss some of these new releases that could be more useful in the future. Some of these might even be fairly strong right now. These are the cards that best symbolize the idea of “future potential” in the game.Read more
So a certain illness has shut down your regionals and closed your locals. You find yourself with no choice but to remain within your home. A lesser duelist might succumb to these circumstances, letting their skills rust and their passion dwindle. Is that what you are, dear reader – a third-rate duelist with fourth-rate dedication? I think not! No quarantine can dampen your love for the game. But in case you need a push of motivation or a jolt of creative energy, here are five ways to enjoy Yugioh while sheltering in place at home.Read more
You’ve been out of the game for quite a while. The last thing you remember dealing with is having your entire hand looped out due to Crush Card Virus and losing to Dark Armed Dragon beatdown. You were glad when CCV was banned, but still felt that it was time for you to leave.
When you heard that it came back off the banlist, you were surprised. How can a card so powerful come off the list all willy-nilly? But what was even more surprising to you is that absolutely no one played the card anymore.
Konami has made many archetypes and series over the years. Some of them originated from the anime, while some are game-originals. However, many archetypes have cards that imply future support they’ve never received.Read more
After the death of Heavymetalfoes Electrumite, Endymion decks have landed in an awkward spot. Their plays became dependent on their opening hands, and their ending boards have become less consistent. However, Selene, Queen of the Master Magicians arrives in Duel Overload and offers assistance to her mighty king.Read more
I participated in the 3v3 side event with my team on both days and placed 2nd both times. However, Sunday’s side event was much bigger and felt more rewarding. I picked up a playset of Magicians’ Souls and wanted to try it out. For the event, I decided to play Lunalight. It is clearly a meta deck, but this build catered to going second and did not run any Psy-Frame or Danger! cards. I was Player B; Player A played Block Burning Abyss and Player C played Spyrals.Read more
If you’re anything like me then you’ve just picked up Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution or tried your hand at Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.

Welcome back to the Banlist series! There have been quite a few changes to the list from when I first released the original series. For this article, I will detail the updates to the list and, same as before, talk about why those cards got banned, and whether or not they should come back.Read more
Marincess is a female anime archetype that first appeared in Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains. Aoi Zaizen used this archetype after she acquired the Water Ignis. Konami based the monster designs on various sea creatures. This is evident in their names (e.g. Marincess Marbled Rock is based on the Marbled Rockfish).Read more
