The New Metagame at the Benelux Extravaganza
A new set being introduced to the game is often an exciting opportunity for duelists to build new decks or to update their old ones. Lightning Overdrive added cards to a couple different strategies, which were successful at the past Benelux Remote Duel Extravaganza. Let's see what changed!
Deck Spotlight: Aquaactress
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!
More 2021 Rituals: Another Run with Drytrons
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.
Anti-Meta Pick: Synchro Assault Mode
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.
Building on a Budget: ABC
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!
