Also don't forget that this card also stops spells and traps, so it can be used to prevent those pesky cards like Hysteric Sign, Shaddoll Core and Blaze Accelerator Reload (use it outside MP so they won't chain it).

Having trouble against burning abyss, shaddoll, lightsworn, infernoid... put 2 of these babies in your extra deck and you'll shrek them!

This card is especially good versus decks that use their graveyard to start their combos. Summon this and make sure you use its effect properly! Keep in mind that it only stops effects from activating in the graveyard after it has resolved, so make sure you use it before your opponent activates their effects in the graveyard! Also, it doesn't negate activated effects once you chain to them.

More 2021 Rituals: Another Run with Drytrons

Event CoverageBy Tatsym (2021-05-20)

We previously took the Drytron archetype, supposedly past its prime, to a first-place finish at the last Extravaganza. But winning one event wasn't enough, so we fixed the deck up, and took it to the next Extravaganza. How did the deck do in round two? You'll find the answers right here.

Rituals in 2021: Winning the Extravaganza with Drytrons

Event CoverageBy Tatsym (2021-05-06)

Does Drytron have what it takes to win? Can the deck rise to the top in a format filled with Dragons? How do you update the strategy to compete in the current metagame? There's no better way to answer these questions than to jump into a tournament with the deck and just keep winning.

Building on a Budget: ABC

ConstructedBy RyanA (2021-04-15)

When Structure Deck: Seto Kaiba came out in late 2016, the entire world was relieved to see it wasn't the 43rd wave of Blue-Eyes support but actually brought a new archetype to the table: the ABC monsters, which were a modern take on Kaiba's XYZ archetype. Even today, these cards pack a punch!

Innovation Corner: Invoked Dino

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-04-08)

Welcome to Innovation Corner! In this series, we are going to explore interesting decks or combos that are fairly obscure or don't see mainstream play. The goal here is to give food for thought and break the mold. First, can the Invoked and Dinosaur themes work together in the same deck?

Interview: Nico's Dinosaurs from the Top 8 of LCS XI

Event CoverageBy RobinS (2021-03-25)

Luxury Champion Series XI was the first event to follow the new ban list, and it was not entirely clear which decks would perform best in the fresh format. Nico Thielen managed to make it all the way to the Top 8 with his Dinosaurs, so how about a look at the list and an interview with the pilot?

News from February's Benelux Extravaganza

Event CoverageBy RyanA (2021-02-17)

The Extravaganza event for the Benelux region, comprised of the Netherlands, northern Belgium, and Luxemburg, had 76 players entering. This put us just over the seven-round mark—plenty of playtime for these duelists to show off their skills! (Or in my personal case, lack thereof.)

Deck Spotlight: U.A.

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-01-13)

U.A. is an archetype based on sports and team play. It debuted as a TCG exclusive deck in 2014's Duelist Alliance set and it received support through 2015's Crossroad Souls. Phantom Rage has finally introduced a wave of support that has made the deck more playable and more consistent.

The Return of the Pranksters

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-11-10)

Sometimes, it doesn't take much to turn a deck from bad to good, or from has-been to relevant again. Phantom Rage offers players a way to rekindle their interest in Prank-Kids with the release of just one card. But this card is all that the deck needs to jump back into the competitive scene.

Surprisingly Strong: Gouki

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-10-27)

Do you remember a few years ago when the Gouki deck used to be one of the top strategies in the game? The Gouki had the ability to summon so many monsters and create such strong boards. Now they are back to their old tricks, albeit in a new way. Let's step into the ring with them, shall we?

Fluffals Are Back!

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-09-15)

Rise of the Duelist introduced many amazing cards that we have already talked about in previous articles. However, hidden in the shadows are a bunch of cards that make an old strategy emerge once more, both to entertain and to steal some unexpected wins. The talk here is of Fluffals!

Name a More Iconic Duo …

ConstructedBy ThomasR (2020-07-30)

Some cards are great alone, but others shine brightest when they show up with a friend. The two-card combo has been a staple of Yu-Gi-Oh! for many years now, arguably stretching back to some of the very first sets of the game. It wasn't until a few years later that combo-based play really became the norm though.

Dinosaurs – Not so Extinct

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-07-21)

Have you ever tried making dinosaurs competitive in the past? By "past" I do not mean pre-historically. As a matter of fact, I can argue that this type was extinct up until April 2017. Was it a meteor or aliens that brought them to life? Nope, it was the Dinosmasher's Fury structure deck that changed everything.

A Study in Nekroz

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-07-16)

With The Secret Forces in February 2015, Nekroz instantly became not only a fan-favorite, but also the deck to beat right upon release. It was the one of the first ritual themes and Konami did a great job creating this powerful blue archetype. That was five years ago though. Where does the deck stand right now?
