In the TCG this guy is super easy to summon through Mathematician (send Glow-p Bulb to the graveyard). You can also run Deskbots (use Deskbot 003 to summon 001) to easily summon this guy. He is super strong in Nekroz (in the OCG there are many variants of Nekroz Decks that run Mathematician or Deskbots) but can also be used in any Ritual Deck.

Graveyard Reliance and Its Counters

By 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!

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.

Dinosaurs – Not so Extinct

By 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.

Eldlich: Evolution of a Meta Deck

By 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.
