Remote Duel Invitational: Lithium's Monarch Deck

Event CoverageBy RyanA (2020-10-15)

The current format is filled with a bunch of strong decks, but sometimes playing something completely off the wall might give you the edge over your opponent. This is what Lithium did at the Remote Duel Invitational, bringing Domain Monarchs. He was definitely an underdog, but he made it all the way to the finals!

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.

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?

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?

Nevertheless, choosing to go first has always been the norm for the majority of players. But one should at least consider the alternative.
