Baptism Under Fire

OCG’s Limit Regulation created a huge explosion within both communities. Just when we thought surprises were over Konami came around for round two and practically blowtorch the TCG scene. Professional opinion, great job for finally fixing the game or at least made it look that way. Personal opinion, fuck you Konami why is Verz Ophion still at three?! Back on track, I honestly take this as a good sign (at least this coming TCG format) because with all the master cleansing going on people finally got what they all wished for, creativity and innovation. This is the baptism under fire TCG players need so whoever wants to earn self-respect and respect from their community this is the time to do it. For the first time the competitive scene in TCGland has become an open field now. Any deck can possibly take any title, well, unless Konami decides to “surprise” us again. Probably plenty of you guys have been waiting for this so time to make good use of time. For now, it’s definitely good news for TCG. 

As for “in-existence decks” that hasn’t been completely torn off, I don’t really care since its TCG and has no relation to me and if it was me I would aim to come up with new deck ideas instead of having forcefully letting go of new toys just to go back playing with old toys. Hieratics “looks” to be the best deck to pilot but y’all gotta remember escalation. Enough people running it the Meta will gradually form to fuck with it (and Hieratics are easy to fuck with.) Maxx “Cs” and Effect Veilers alone are good enough to stop the deck cold and if the build ain’t solid hell you’d probably regret picking the deck up. Don’t get me wrong it’s still my favourite deck but TCG lacks important pieces to make it work. If you want to play Hieratics, try out E-Tele in them (more resilient towards Maxx “C” and Veiler) or just run Exodius for now. All is normal until Labradorite Dragon hits the playing field at your side.  On a sidenote, I would be interested to test out Chaos Dragons in TCG right now. Time for you guys to make Evilswarm versus Blackwing videos and fuck my favourite Verz Ophion up with Icarus Attack!!! Nah, I am just joking. Maybe LGQ will win a YCS with Hieratics and everyone can copy his deck. LOL! Aite guys thanks for dropping by and stay tune for more possible updates!


The Balls

The list is out (http://shriek.twoday.net/stories/453141875/) and everyone is excited as hell because Trishula is coming back! If you want scans please visit here. Well, more important, the reign of Dragon Rulers and Prophecies will officially end come September 1st. There is nothing to be said since I am pretty sure everyone is just happy with those two shitty decks to be gone and for once Konami actually did react as the community wished. However, bumping Gorz to two is a shitty move in my opinion. A free 2700 ATK stand-alone beater is just plain stupid if not “retardifying.” I don’t know I just can’t seem to enjoy that piece of news (fuck the Ophion reasoning.) Konami likes hand traps these days maybe it’s time to play Mind Drain. With Scapegoat coming back to three I suppose there are more means to prevent yourself from getting OTKed now ( 3 Battle Faders, 3 Swift Scarecrows, 2 Tragoedias, and double Gorz.) Time for me to abuse Scapegoat and Labradorite Dragon to make Trishula for no apparent reason in Hieratics! 

A side note, Heroes are clearly coming back in style with E-Calls and Pot of Duality back to three. Mirror Force back to three is a bonus for them as well I suppose. I hope to see Heroes wrecking Verz with Super Poly because fuck Ophion that’s why! (If you know what i mean.) KONAMI Y U NO LIMIT OPHION?! Aside from all that, Trishula coming back is going to bring some changes but whether or not it’s a positive or negative sign no one can say for now. Either way there are plenty of ways to screw around with Trishula now (Veiler it, Trish attacks, meets Gorz and token, okay.jpg, Gorz token suicides, Gorz attacks, meets Gorz and token, okay.jpg) so no need for panic modes people. Will Plants make a return? Good question. Having said all that, Chaos Sorcerer back to two looks to be a sign for more DARK and LIGHT bullshit in the future while Advanced Ritual Art at three might just smash some balls because Perfect Herald is cancer. 

New OCG policies are eye-catching but I have no comments until further experience. Three WCQs a year means more official tourneys to compete in so that’s good news. At least for now all these changes bring a sign of positivity with them but we’ll wait and see. The rest of the list is self-explanatory. Until Konami’s next bullshit, thank you for dropping by and let’s all celebrate the end of Dragon Rulers/Prophecies with much joy!
