When Anime Characters Made It into the Card Game

By TheSorcerer (2022-04-27)

Characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime are a fundamental part of the franchise. We know that any card we see them use in the show will eventually make an appearance in the actual game. However, sometimes the characters themselves show up in cards' artworks. This article is about these cards.

By TheLastPharaoh (2022-02-24)

The first core set of the year, Battle of Chaos, finally dropped, which means another article on generic goodies! We do not know the full extent of its meta impact yet, but the set has a bunch of generic cards worth picking up. Here are the most important as well as a few rather obscure ones that caught our interest!

Dark Magician After Battle of Chaos

By RyanA (2022-02-17)

Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon are the two most iconic monsters in the game due to their appearance in the original anime. While neither of them have been among the best decks in the metagame save for a brief stroke of relevance in 2016, they are still crowd favorites.

Clash of the Titans: Dragoon versus Phoenix Enforcer

By TheLastPharaoh (2021-12-15)

These are peculiar times to be a Yu-Gi-Oh! player. We have two boss monsters that are easy to splash into almost any deck, yet preferences and necessity dictate which will be gracing the extra deck. Both are rather similar and also entirely different. Which of the two is better overall?

Progression of the Protagonists' Ace Monsters

By TheSorcerer (2021-12-01)

With the release of Burst of Destiny, HEROs finally return to the spotlight in a powerful way.

This HERO may even rival one of the most infamous cards in recent history.

Top 5 Most Supported Archetypes

By Lepprince (2021-08-26)

There are over 10,000 individual cards in Yu-Gi-Oh!, but they absolutely aren't distributed evenly across the hundreds of archetypes. Some archetypes are miniscule (Skyblaster with just two cards) while others are massive. Let's take a look at the latter (and see how quantity doesn't equal quality).

Why Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon Should Be Banned

By RobinS (2021-08-05)

Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon made its long-awaited and -feared TCG debut in the 2020 Mega Tins. However, it did not immediately dominate the metagame as so many had anticipated. For quite some time, Dragoon did not see any play in meta decks. This article discusses why the card should nevertheless be banned.

Deck Spotlight: Aquaactress

By 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!

By Tatsym (2021-03-23)

The Remote Duel Invitational marked the end of the previous format. But to do well at this event, you didn't need to play any of the cards that since ended up on the Forbidden and Limited List. One could also sneak Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon-powered Eldlich past a bunch of True Kings of All Calamities …

The Most Broken Cards in Yu-Gi-Oh! History

By Tatsym (2021-03-10)

Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game with thousands of cards, and yearly releases keep the game growing. To avoid stagnation and to stay exciting, to keep the player base and the deck designers engaged, some degree of power creep is necessary. However, sometimes power creep goes a little too fast and too far.

News from February's Benelux Extravaganza

By 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.)

Are Some Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards Too Generic?

By RobinS (2021-02-10)

The last few formats have featured the same cards being exploited by various decks over and over again. More often than not, such cards wind up banned after a few formats pass, and then the cycle repeats again—just with new cards. This raises the question whether or not some cards are just too generic in the first place.

Building on a Budget: Dark Magician

By 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!

Looking Back at Seven Years of Yu-Gi-Oh!

By Tatsym (2020-11-12)

We all played make-believe Yu-Gi-Oh! back in the day. We saw the show on the television and all copied what they did. We all wanted to be Yami Yugi and summon Dark Magician. Eventually, we picked up the game for real. For this article I want to look back on my seven years of play.

By RobinS (2020-10-30)

Surprisingly Strong: Gouki

By 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?

September 2020 Forbidden and Limited List Analysis

By ThomasR (2020-09-16)

After an almost nonexistent Forbidden and Limited update in June which saw just three changes, and without any tier two events, updates to the official banlist will always bring out excitement. Despite affecting fewer cards than any new set would introduce, you can expect to see big changes to the metagame.

Ryan Goes Rogue: Dark Magician

By 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.
