By TheLastPharaoh (2021-12-15)

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.

Yu-Gi-Oh! History: The Gravekeeper Archetype

By RyanA (2021-08-03)

Players who have been playing the game for a while will have some sense of familiarity with the Gravekeeper theme. This army of tomb guardians and their interaction with one of the most potent field spells the game had seen for a long time is a legacy definitely worth discussing.

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.

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.

This raises the question whether or not some cards are just too generic in the first place.

A banlist despite no events? Well it had to happen sometime. With the best deck finally gone, the landscape will soon be populated with new decks and lists — and probably some old decks as well. In a world without Adamancipator, what will the other deck from Secret slayers do? Eldlich deserves another look!

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.
