Graveyard Reliance and Its Counters

ConstructedBy 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!

Deck Spotlight: Aquaactress

ConstructedBy 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!

Rituals in 2021: Winning the Extravaganza with Drytrons

Event CoverageBy 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.

Building on a Budget: Zombie World

ConstructedBy RyanA (2021-04-29)

Zombie Horde was a great structure deck because of how fun the mirror match was. After all, the entire deck's strategy was interacting with the opponent's cards, and playing Zombie World in Constructed lets you do just that. Since it's a structure-based strategy, it also won't break the bank.

Building on a Budget: ABC

ConstructedBy RyanA (2021-04-15)

When Structure Deck: Seto Kaiba came out in late 2016, the entire world was relieved to see it wasn't the 43rd wave of Blue-Eyes support but actually brought a new archetype to the table: the ABC monsters, which were a modern take on Kaiba's XYZ archetype. Even today, these cards pack a punch!

Interview: Sebastian's 8-0 Prank-Kids Deck from LCS XII

Event CoverageBy TayfunB (2021-04-14)

This past weekend, Prank-Kids took the highest number of top cut spots at the Luxury Championship Series XII event. Sebastian Zimmermann started 8-0 into the tournament and finished the Swiss portion in first place. He joins us for an interview to share his experience and his insight!

Innovation Corner: Invoked Dino

ConstructedBy 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

Event CoverageBy 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?

Deck Spotlight: Numeron Gren Maju

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2021-02-18)

Barely anyone talks about Gren Maju. By itself, it's a respectable strategy that players fear because it is so unexpected and can steal games in one turn. But what do you get when you add a bit of sauce in the form of the Numeron engine to the deck? A very frustrated opponent probably.

News from February's Benelux Extravaganza

Event CoverageBy 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.)

Deck Spotlight: U.A.

ConstructedBy 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.

The Return of the Pranksters

ConstructedBy 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.

Dogmatika – The New Meta Contender

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-08-18)

Dogmatika is one of the most anticipated archetypes of 2020. They are projected to be one of the top decks of the format. But they better function in mix with other archetypes. Let's find out what the cards do and what is the variant you are most likely to encounter in this format!

Name a More Iconic Duo …

ConstructedBy ThomasR (2020-07-30)

Some cards are great alone, but others shine brightest when they show up with a friend. The two-card combo has been a staple of Yu-Gi-Oh! for many years now, arguably stretching back to some of the very first sets of the game. It wasn't until a few years later that combo-based play really became the norm though.

Age of Numerons

ConstructedBy TheLastPharaoh (2020-07-28)

Battles of Legends: Armageddon has dropped last week and introduced us to the Numeron archetype. Will a couple of Rank 1 Xyz monsters impact the metagame? Is this a deck or an engine? Where can it fit? So many questions that we will explore together. Welcome to the age of Numerons!

Dinosaurs – Not so Extinct

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.

Phantasm Spiral: The Menace That Won't Go Away

ConstructedBy SamS (2020-06-11)

Phantasm Spiral is an archetype that never seems to leave the scene. No matter how hard you hit it, it somehow always bounces back. The last time I played the deck, I had multiple copies of Terraforming and Card of Demise on my side, but today we'll look at a recent top list that shows it can well work without them.
