Question about those effects : You can not respond to effect activation but you can use a a trap at summon or when she attacks right ?

Question, out of curiosity:
What happened that caused this card's price to increase by about 20€ (and probably more to go) so suddenly?

Past, Present, and Future: Breaking the Cyberse Code

ConstructedBy CloneBoyOllie (2021-06-24)

In 2017, Yu-Gi-Oh! players were introduced to Cyberse monsters through the Link Strike Starter Deck, alongside the new mechanic of link summoning. While these computerized creatures and blue-bordered battlers injected a breath of fresh air to the game, they also brought new strategies from the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.

Underrated Decks in the Current Format

ConstructedBy KoGames (2021-06-22)

In a format dominated by powerful decks like Tri-Brigade Zoo, Eldlich (in all of its forms), Prank-Kids, Invoked Dogmatika, and Dragon Link, some perfectly reasonable decks fly under the radar. Not only can they put up a decent fight. In some instances they prove even better than the current meta topdogs.

The New Metagame at the Benelux Extravaganza

Event CoverageBy RyanA (2021-06-16)

A new set being introduced to the game is often an exciting opportunity for duelists to build new decks or to update their old ones. Lightning Overdrive added cards to a couple different strategies, which were successful at the past Benelux Remote Duel Extravaganza. Let's see what changed!

Deck Spotlight: Aquaactress

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-06-01)

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V anime first introduced the Aquaactress theme. The cards themselves arrived in the TCG with the release of Dragons of Legend 2 in July 2015. Only seven cards make up the core of the strategy, but I feel like we reached a point in the game where anything deserves another look!

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.

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?

Top 5 Best Budget Decks of the Format

ConstructedBy KoGames (2021-04-07)

Budget decks allow players to compete without having to break the bank, and they're often, by necessity, innovative. However, the term "budget deck" is subjective. These decks might include one or two expensive cards that are necessary to their strategy, while the core remains affordable to the casual collector.

Staples Versus Your Wallet

FinanceBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-03-17)

I have been playing a lot of remote locals recently and noticed a reoccurring pattern. Players try to build their decks well and are willing to pay to kit their deck out with key cards, but they skimp on the staples. I'm just as guilty of doing this as anyone, and today I want to look at why.

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.)

Building on a Budget: Dark Magician

ConstructedBy RyanA (2021-02-02)

For competitive players spending a couple hundred euros on a deck is nothing out of the ordinary, but not everyone has the ability to do so. Still that shouldn't stop them from aiming for the best possible results. I firmly believe you should play a deck you like, and for many people that's Dark Magician!

Should Broadbull Stay Banned?

ConstructedBy ThomasR (2020-11-18)

With the recent arrival of Phantom Rage, the TCG is seeing some new contenders to the heavy Dragon Link and Dinosaur metagame that preceded it. While some of the new themes introduced have been underwhelming, the set includes a wealth of support cards for pre-existing archetypes.

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?

Yu-Gi-Oh! and Your Wallet

FinanceBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-09-30)

Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game that requires you to keep purchasing cards, as new and better strategies are introduced, and some cards become staples that you simply can't miss if you want to compete. Here are a few ways to alleviate some of the financial stress while still managing to enjoy the game.

Best Reprints from Tin of Lost Memories

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-09-24)

The 2020 Tin of Lost Memories introduced us to the much-hyped Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, but it is first and foremost a reprint set. As such, it allows players easier access to cards that were previously difficult or expensive to obtain. Let's take a look at the best reprints this tin has to offer!

Ryan Goes Rogue: Dark Magician

ConstructedBy RyanA (2020-09-10)

Throughout the years, Dark Magician has seen plenty of support cards. Some of them were amazing cards that changed how the deck was played. Seeing as we just got one of those in the form of Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, it seems like a good time to look into building a Dark Magician deck.

Why Is Last Turn Banned?

ConstructedBy RobinS (2020-08-04)

Over the years, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game has banned many cards.

This article will investigate why Last Turn in particular remains banned to this day.

Up to Speed on Speed Duels

ConstructedBy RyanA (2020-07-14)

Starter Decks: Twisted Knightmares and Match of the Millennium were released near the end of May and greatly shook up the competitive scene. Last format, which started in December with the release of Trials of the Kingdom, was mostly dominated by the Cocoon Warrior strategy.

The Cost of Playing Pot of Extravagance

FinanceBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-07-09)

Draw cards are powerful and popular. Some are better than others, but only one of them could currently force you to stay away from certain decks due to financial implications. Is the card itself insanely expensive? Not really; it just received its first reprint. Nevertheless it is potentially quite expensive to use.

The Value of Your Old Cards

FinanceBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-07-07)

Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game that requires buying cards. Archetypes rise and fall, newer ones come along, and some cards that used to be expensive lose their value while others gain value and popularity over time. Have you been playing for a while? Do you have a collection of cards? Why don't we take a look through them?
