Why You Should Be Playing Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo!

Dragons have become the most dominant deck of this format by a long shot, so it only makes sense that you’d want to gear your deck to beat them. Duelists have scoured through just about everything to try to find answers, to the point where you see cards that have never seen play before suddenly becoming issues.  From more common choices like Vanitys Emptiness to more unique cards like Mystical Refpanel, I feel like I’ve had to fight through just about … Continue reading

Why You Should Be Playing Trap Stun!

Boyajian Headshot

Every format that we’ve experienced without Heavy Storm has made one thing clear: spell and trap removal’s important.  But the difficult thing about that is finding what specific spell and trap card removal you should be playing. We’ve seen quite a bit of everything this format if you look at it all in a vacuum, with Mystical Space Typhoon being the go-to simply because it’s not only flexible, but also a quick-play spell. That makes Typhoon the most obvious choice when you’re … Continue reading

The Future to Come – Stardust Spark Dragon

Boyajian Headshot

Generic Synchros are some of the most powerful cards in the game. Looking back at what’s happened since The Duelist Genesis, you see cards like Stardust Dragon; Goyo Guardian; Black Rose Dragon; Dark Strike Fighter; Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier; Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier, and many more generic Synchros dominating entire formats and changing the way that you play. These cards not only have powerful effects, but can be played in any deck that has Tuners to … Continue reading

Mystical Space Typhoon Theory Applied to the Current Format

Boyajian Headshot

While the game of Yu-Gi-Oh! itself can’t really be dumbed down or generalized because of its many complexities, analyzing individual elements of gameplay can give you quite a bit of information and perspective. The topic I’m going to talk about today is Mystical Space Typhoon, centering our discussion on when you should play it and why; not in what specific situation you should activate it, but dealing with it more on the level of when running such a card is … Continue reading

Preparing For The WCQ: The Huge List Of Dragon Ruler Regional Tech!

Jason Headshot

Last week we looked at the variable main deck cards that see popular play in Dragon Rulers. The week before that, we discussed how Dragon Ruler duelists are getting an edge, dishing out extra damage with cards like Ancient Sacred Wyvern and Return from the Different Dimension. Today I want to finish up the discussion and go one step further; this time we’ll talk about the tech cards we’ve seen in Top 8 Dragon Ruler builds over the past few … Continue reading

Dragon Rulers – Making Main Deck Decisions!

Jason Headshot

Contrary to what you may have heard, building a Dragon Ruler deck isn’t easy. Sure, the first twenty cards are no-brainers: you’re extremely likely to run twenty Dragon Rulers, maxing out on the Level 7′s and running two each of the “babies” at Levels 3 and 4. Beyond that, you’re probably going to run triple Super Rejuvenation and Gold Sarcophagus, too. But that leaves fourteen card slots, and almost everything from that point forward is variable. Part of last week’s … Continue reading

Trending Cards And The Battle Of Originality

Amanda Profile

“Wait, so you don’t want to play Dragon Rulers?” I called Simon He on Skype, beginning the conversation with that question to discuss his recent – and enigmatic – facebook status, which stated he was apprehensive about what to play and his feelings on the Dragon mirror match. “No, I do. It’s the best option right now. It’s just- how do I put this? I don’t want to go into an event playing the same decklist as everyone else. I … Continue reading

The Fringe – Ordeal of a Traveler and Vanity’s Emptiness

Boyajian Headshot

Sometimes cards don’t have any cool combos, or fancy things you can do with them in a specific strategy. The card is simply good enough on its own, if you understand the best way to use it. On the other hand, you can also find cards that do have those cute combos or interesting interactions in certain strategies. Today we have one of each, both pretty fun in their own right! I mean, it’s fun if you enjoy knowing your … Continue reading
