In my opinion , D.D. Crow is one of the most underlooked hand traps in the game. The reason behind this is very simple, D.D. Crow is always a -1 no matter how you look at it, however, if used correctly, it can be a very disruptive card.

D.D. Crow effect works very similar to Number 80: Rhapsody in Berserk effect with a minor albeit relevant difference. D.D. Crow effect can be activated during either player's turn. That means you can banish cards from the graveyard such Djinn Releaser of Rituals, Hysteric Sign or monsters targetted with Satellarknight Altair effect. You'll have to play D.D. Crow smart, otherwise you'll waste it. But if it works it will stop your opponent dead on tracks.

Graveyard Reliance and Its Counters

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-06-28)

The current format features decent diversity—seven different decks showed up in the Top 16 of the Luxury Championship Series. However, it appears that most strategies coincidentally rely on the graveyard, in one way or another, some more than others. You should build your side deck accordingly, and you can!

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!

Despite organized play for Speed Duel being limited to the occasional Win-a-Mat at Extravaganzas, some unsanctioned events are getting a pretty good turnout consistently. The Speed Duel League allows players to compete for big prizes, and contenders continued to innovate on their strategies.

Hand traps have played an important role in the game since they entered it, or at least since D.D. Crow. And in every format, some hand traps end up being better than others. This article will examine the most relevant exemplars from the current format. Let us see what it is that makes them good!

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!

Graveyard Shift: Crow vs. Skull vs. Ghost

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-01-26)

Three hand traps – the Crow, the Skull, and the Ghost – all of them attack the graveyard. The ghost does so from many different angles, the Crow is a surgical strike, and the Fiend can hit the opponent hard, but which is better than the others. Let's find out!

Card Spotlight: Ice Dragon's Prison

ConstructedBy ThomasR (2021-01-12)

Ice Dragon's Prison is one of my favorite cards of the last year. It became a favorite mainly because it has such an interesting effect. Initially I didn't realize just how strong it would be. I picked up a single copy for my cube, but I certainly regret not buying a set for Constructed too!

Yu-Gi-Oh! History: The Decks That Dominated 2012

EntertainmentBy RyanA (2020-10-08)

Sometimes, all you need to hear is a year to be reminded of a certain Yu-Gi-Oh! format. 2019 is "the eternal format," 2005 is Goats, 2014 is either HAT format or DUEA format, depending on who you ask. But what does the 2012 format look like? Let's take a trip down memory lane.

Side Decking Right After a Banlist

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-06-23)

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden & Limited List is a tool that Konami uses to keep the game in balance by hitting cards deemed to be a threat, or by releasing those that no longer appear threatening. A ban or unban creates a new format, which leads to the question: How do you side deck for the unknown?

Going Second: Prevent a Board or Break It

ConstructedBy RyanA (2020-06-05)

Most trading card games have special rules in place for the first turn. In Yu-Gi-Oh!, the starting player is unable to draw during their Draw Phase or conduct their Battle Phase. Nevertheless, choosing to go first has always been the norm for the majority of players. But one should at least consider the alternative.

Eldlich: Evolution of a Meta Deck

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-06-05)

A competitive theme with only one monster? Even Sky Strikers had more monsters on release! How is it possible for such a strategy to be a meta deck right out of the gate and to inspire so many builds and approaches when it comes to deck building? Consistency, versatility, and a big boss monster are the reasons why.
