Yu-Gi-Oh! Deck Recipes – “Chaos Rising” (Prototype Dark/Light Deck) – By Yogizilla

Posted by Yogizilla on August 12, 2011

{EAV_BLOG_VER:2070514c9f875a89}

I’ve always had a love affair with DARK monsters but LIGHT monsters are no slouch in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, either – ESPECIALLY with cards like Honest and Athena out there!

After playing Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2010: Reverse of Arcadia for a few days now, my quest to build “perfect” Dark decks has begun once again. I am looking to build a Zombie deck, a LIGHT/DARK deck, and a synchro-summon DARK deck, amongst others. In this installment, we’ll look at my recipe for “Chaos Rising” thus far…

Yu-Gi-Oh! Chaos Sorcerer

Chaos Sorcerer makes Dark Magician look like a pansy.

SUMMARY: My prototype deck still has lots of work to be done but I’ve won more duels than I have lost with it. The build revolves around Chaos Sorcerer, a monster that can remove from play one face-up monster on the field once every turn (at the cost of not being able to attack with him that turn). I’d say that is my key card but I have other winning strategies in this deck and I’d say it is rather flexible, in spite of it’s imperfections. Combining Light and Dark monsters is always fun and I’ll add more to my deck once I acquire the right cards (this is a Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 5D’s video game deck, just so you know, but it works well offline too).

This is a maxed-out deck at 60 cards.  Currently, 28 cards are SPELL or TRAP cards, the rest are monsters.  Nothing in my Extra Deck.  Side Deck is mainly a placeholder so this deck has been tuned for single duels.  Read more to see the cards in my deck right now…

Cleaning Up Shop – Not Interested In Bumburbia – Relevant Comments FTW!

Posted by Yogizilla on April 14, 2011

I’ve noticed a lot of comments that are either copy-and-paste self-promoting junk or full of foul language. Let’s keep things relevant. Post about Anime, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and/or video games. If I didn’t approve your comments, it’s probably cause it seemed spammy or inappropriate.

That said, I appreciate all the cool comments and I’m trying hard to reply to everyone. Just a heads-up: I don’t do Skype or webcam duels. If you want to duel, challenge me via Yu-Gi-Oh! Online (PC) or Yu-Gi-Oh! Decade Duels (XBox 360). I’m always up for a friendly duel if work is not keeping me busy or I’m not distracted by XBox LIVE or the massive Netflix Anime Instant Play Collection.

I’ve said it before but I promise to expand the Card Showcase and do a HUGE Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Buster so be patient. I’m a very busy bear-lizard. Please leave a good comment and maybe you’ll win some Yu-Gi-Oh! Or Pokemon goodies.

Speaking of which, I still got some Pokemon goodies for interested parties. It’s pretty rare stuff so these won’t be freebies. Tweet me if interested. Add Yogizilla and NipplesOfFate, my gaming clan, on Twitter then message me to qualify! Be sure to share DPO with friends and like/link your favorite content on here! 8)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duel Challenges – Get Ready!!!

Posted by Yogizilla on May 15, 2007

The stage for a great new era for Yu-Gi-Oh! has been set in 2007. With Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duel Evolution providing new content every month and the recent release of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007, we can see a deliberate effort to bring the game to different types of gamers, not just the hardcore TCG players and Neutral Ground hobbits. I love how the online community for YGOO is evolving. There’s something for everyone. If you want free, cheesy duels, you can find one of many interest groups out there that do webcam duels but, if you want the complete events and community, there is no better choice than Yu-Gi-Oh! Online; yeah, I may be a bit biased because I just so happen to play the game and love every last bit of it!

With the coming Gunslinger events on Yu-Gi-Oh! Online May 18th and 19th it’s time to prepare! Tricky’s Magic and The Tricky are the cards to be awarded for 6-win and 7-win streaks, accordingly. If you are unfamiliar with how Duelist Trial and Gunslinger work, it’s simple: Duelist Trial awards you a rank depending on how many wins you get whereas Gunslinger is all about survival, or how long you can win without losing. In Gunslinger, the longer you last, the better the cards you get after each battle. If you lose lots of battle during the Gunslinger event, expect to get many copies of the same card. No worries – chances are you can trade them with some newbie later on!

Yugi VS. Kaiba: Who Wins??

Shonen Jump features the original unstoppable duelists of the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe. Years later, who would come out on top? We vote for Yugi.

 

Oh shizzle, Gunslinger is around the corner… It’s time to duel!

Duel School: How To Play Yu-Gi-Oh!

Posted by Yogizilla on March 15, 2007

It took a little while longer than I had hoped but I finally completed the Duel School page, which will be a great resource for new (yes, learn how to play Yu-Gi-Oh! on this new page) and casual duelists alike. Heck, this approach to dueling may give even old school Yu-Gi-Oh! players a fresh, new perspective. I personally hope it helps debunk some of the myths of the game while showing people that the game is easy to learn, fun to play, and good for anyone that likes TCG’s or strategic games in general. I always say this: Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game that can be easily learned yet offers enough complexity for even the most advanced gaming strategists.

I enjoyed putting together this information though, I must admit, WordPress was being very naughty. I almost lost all my work somehow and then the formatting was stripped out of everything. I will be polishing up the page a bit and hopefully citing more external resources to help you with your homework. Speaking of homework, I will also be finding ways to tie in the Duel Challenges page to give all of you out there a fresh new way to learn and re-learn the game. I think everyone could stand to learn more by returning to the basics, really!

As part of the launch of this major new section, I am asking folks in the gaming community to guest blog for us, help us collect Yu-Gi-Oh! resources, and share any feedback you may have. Promoting our efforts definitely goes a long way! Perhaps if we all work a little bit here and there, on a consistent basis, we can hit the 25K mark by the end of this month and set a more aggressive goal for next month. At this rate, I think we can very well do it.

All I know is that all this fun stuff has caught my partner-in-crime’s eye so hopefully Ugocean will grace us with his presence. He’s been terribly busy with back-end stuff and some other projects we have going on. We’ve pretty much decided that anything that is PR, customer service, or content-related is my department. He’s enjoying his time with servers, analytics, PHP, and a guy named Jobi. We love you Ugocean!

Thanks to all of you that have sent me e-mail messages and comments here on WordPress, MySpace, and other places. Some of you have requested training so I hope our duel school gives you a good place to start. If you want to set up an online meetup, your best bet is e-mailing me or using our challenges area. Don’t be shy: I love receiving and responding to messages, so long as they are nice and not mere spam! I am looking forward to your response on this initiative and the other goodies we are working on. Good times, good times… =o)
