With both Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duel Evolution and Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 evolving to embrace the new GX world of Yu-Gi-Oh!, we are seeing some very unique cards coming into the online sector. These are exciting times for new and seasoned duelists alike! As promised, we are going to showcase some of the cards that you can consider adding to your own custom decks/recipes. Keep in mind that some of these may be available on a limited basis, if at all, so keep an eye out for them! We’ll eventually update our old booster pack list for Yu-Gi-Oh! Online as well.
*** FEATURED CARD: Card Trooper ***
Why It Rocks: Card Trooper gives you a free draw when it is sent to the graveyard but, while you use it’s effect, you can set up Graveyard Search combos, such as Monster Reincarnation, Premature Burial, Monster Reborn, and the like. Any card that helps you get the cards you want into your hands is always good! This card can also be useful when facing Gravity Bind and similar level-limiting and/or ATK-limiting effects and strategies.
Be Wary Of: Counters that remove cards from play can really be bothersome.
Some Supporting Cards: Fusion Miracle, Foolish Burial, Premature Burial, Monster Reincarnation, Mask of Darkness, Magician of Faith
*** Yogizilla’s Favorite Recipes ***
Whether you’re dueling or enjoying some Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime/Manga, one thing is consistent: duelists tend to like certain card types and builds/recipes. As such, I thought I would quickly share some of my all-time favorite card types. This won’t be a very granular look but except more details about current favorites once I start doing some pack/box busters.
- Dark Monsters and Support Cards – Cards of the dark alignment tend to embrace destruction, thievery, and the like. I particularly like the Dark World series as it sets up some unconventional strategies and keeps opponents on their toes.
- Light Monsters and Support Cards – Creatures of the light lend more to strength and abundance. What’s that one card that pwnz face in? I believe it’s called Honesty. Oh yes.. You know what I’m talking about! Just when your opponent thinks they got you, Honesty allows you to discard a monster from your hand and boost your stats in accordance to the discarded monster’s stats. Pretty darn handy!
- Chaos Decks – Combine Light and Dark to have possibly one of the most well-balanced builds out there. Really, Dark and Light monsters both rule so why choose between them when you can have both?
- Dragons – Ah yes.. Dragons! 5D’s is all about dragons, it seems, but dragons have been a Yu-Gi-Oh! staple for a while. With so many awesome support cards for Dragons out there, it’s hard NOT to love them. One of my faves: Stamping Destruction – INDEED!
…I’ll expand on this soon and add some photos too! =oD
