The January 2022 Ban List: Finally a Big Shakeup!

By Lepprince (2022-02-02)

It's here! It took a bit, but we have finally received the long-awaited update to the Forbidden & Limited List. This format was fun, but it was getting stale, really. Most of the top decks relying on floodgates or un-outable boards didn't help, but did this ban list fix the issues?

Deck Spotlight: Floowandereeze

By TheLastPharaoh (2021-11-11)

Is it a Monarch deck? Is it a True Draco deck? No, it is Floowandereeze! A couple of little birdies, two bigger ones, and a dream of board control through a magnificent map. The deck's playstyle is somewhat different than what we are used to, and we are here to talk about it and explain how to play it.

Yu-Gi-Oh! History: Final Countdown

By RyanA (2021-11-10)

The premise of a Final Countdown deck is simple, somewhat elegant, and mostly infuriating to play against. "Patience is a virtue" is taken to another level with this strategy and today we'll take a look at the few moments when this deck made waves throughout the game's history.

Zombies at the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier

By RyanA (2021-09-16)

Up until a few days before the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier, I had no idea if I was even going to play in the event. After all, the weather would be great and my room would be warm. The evening before the event I won my locals with Zombies, and then I wanted to see how far I could take the deck.

Staples and Power Creep: From MST to Lightning Storm

By Lepprince (2021-08-04)

Ever since the game's inception, there have been cards the community has taken to calling "staples." Why this name? Well, because they hold the deck together. They're generic powerful cards that fit into basically any deck and are played in most formats. Let's take a look at these cards and how they have evolved!

Topping the Remote Duel YCS with Tri-Brigade

By RyanA (2021-07-21)

Over the past few months, Remote Duels have increased in popularity. It was only a matter of time until they were followed up by something bigger: an actual two-day YCS held through Remote Duels, right after the new Forbidden & Limited List dropped. Here's the story of a 10-2 run with Tri-Brigade!

Starting Fresh into the New Format

By Tatsym (2021-07-06)

Real-life events returning, a fresh ban list, still loads of online events to take part in—good reasons to be hyped for the new format. The Dragon Link oppressors are gone and it's open skies for whoever wants to claim the title. Let's look at the meta and collect ideas on how to prepare for upcoming events!

Underrated Decks in the Current Format

By 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.

More 2021 Rituals: Another Run with Drytrons

By 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

By 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.

Anti-Meta Pick: Synchro Assault Mode

By TheLastPharaoh (2021-04-20)

The beauty of Yu-Gi-Oh! Is that you can mix together so many cards either to improve certain decks or to create decks that have never been seen before. What happens when a player decides to try their hand at the Assault Mode strategy? The result is anything but ordinary—extraordinarily interesting.

Innovation Corner: Invoked Dino

By 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

By 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?

Report: Top 4 at the Invitational with Red-Eyes Eldlich

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 …

Deck Spotlight: Generaiders

By Sunavalon (2021-03-04)

Generaiders is an ambitious archetype built around level nine monster with different types and attributes. It was introduced in Deck Build Pack: Mystic Fighters. How is the deck built today and can it stack up against the best? Get the scoop on the standard build and its variants here.

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.)

Why Is Premature Burial Banned (But Monster Reborn Isn't)?

By RobinS (2021-01-20)

Reviving monsters back from the graveyard has been a powerful strategy since the early days of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Premature Burial allows you to do just that. However, the card itself hasn't been allowed for several years while similar options remain legal. Today, we will look into this.

Deck Spotlight: U.A.

By 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.

Is Virtual World the New Deck to Beat?

By TheLastPharaoh (2020-12-01)

Virtual World came out of nowhere and took down a major! Well, we all knew it was a good deck. But most people thought it would only come into its own after the upcoming ban list announcement, scheduled for the second half of December. In this article, we will look at why the deck has shown up to the party early.

Return of the Staples

By Tatsym (2020-11-25)

Yu-Gi-Oh! always has been dominated by strong generic cards. These so-called staples see broad application across all kinds of decks and strategies. Each format has their own, and each new release brings new staples. But nowadays it seems like 50% of any deck are good generic cards.

Should Broadbull Stay Banned?

By 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

By 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.

Battle Pack: Epic Dawn – A Retrospective

By RyanA (2020-09-22)

When asked what my favorite core set is, I would be inclined to go for Metal Raiders. However, my favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! product of all time would be Battle Pack: Epic Dawn. Released almost a decade ago, nothing about this pack was anything we had ever seen before in this game's history up to that point.

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.
