    Yu-Gi-Oh.

    The #1 Best-Selling CCG in the World, and a personal best seller at my shop. They've recently released a new ban list (following the footsteps of Magic) that has evened out the playing field. Due to it's success, I've started playing it myself and I was amazed by how good the game actually is. It's not too "grown-up" and overrated like Magic...and not too "kiddie" and underrated like Pokemon, Yu-Yu, and Inuyasha. It's a great blend of the two great for all ages.

    My little brother was into it so he bought me a structured deck, the dragons one. I've decided that it's pretty fun so I've been improving on my dragon deck. 3 blue-eyes, a couple of Lord of D.s etc. It's getting pretty good.

    I used to play this game all the time. I miss it because I was the King Shit. I had an awesome deck, and I miss it. Good times.

    I suppose I can call myself a hardcore player. I am currently running a "Return-Control" deck I made up. It focuses on Back to Square One and Phoenix Wing Wind Blast to constantly return my opponent's cards back to the top of his deck, where he has to draw them again!

    I have a deck I call "The Pit," because a lot of the lines used in "Piper's Pit" (Rowdy Roddy Piper, of wrestling fame) seem to fit it.

    "Just when they thought they had all the answers, I changed the questions!"
    "It's like throwing rocks at a guy with a machine gun."
    "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$. And I'm all out of bubble gum."

    There is no real theme to the deck, just whatever I thought looked fun to have in. A lot of flip effect monsters, and some fun traps/magic/effect monsters to let them get their effects off.

    My favorite card is my Gate Guardian.

    I used to be really into this, before it got made fun of a lot. I had some really good cards in my deck like Buster Blader, and I used that with DNA Surgery to turn all of my opponents monsters into dragons so he would get a big power boost.

    I just thought I'd point out how insanely idiotic it is to come into a thread just to say that you don't like the subject matter. I pity you and hope that someday medical science finds a way to increase your IQ to a level that at least qualifies as remedial.

    +1 Ditto to you

    On another note, the new set is coming out in 1-2 months, I personally can't wait for Brain Control...not because of the anime (which I can't stomach) but because I want something that's as good as Change of Heart!

    Shit man, i'm with you there. I used to be big into it back in the day. I played a water deck. And it owned, it focused on The Legendary Fishermen, tornado wall, and Legendary Ocean. It was damn good. I hear these people talking bout cards, and i have no clue what they are. I also played a dark deck on occasion, it was kick ass to. I used to do tournies, but stopped cus of it cost to much money to keep up to date with the new series that came out. It is still fun to go to my local game store and own the little kids though, they are fun though.

    You can get back into the game for 10 dollars. Allow me to say that again in all caps:

    $ $ T E N --- D O L L A R S $ $

    That's right. There are 2 (soon to be 4) complete structure decks available that retail for $10 a piece. Skipping the horrible names, they are:

    Dragon Type Deck
    Zombie Type Deck
    Fire Attribute Deck (coming very soon)
    Water Attribute Deck (also coming very soon)

    For $10 you can resurrect your water deck and your interest in Yu-Gi-Oh. I guarantee that the water deck is playable out-of-the-box. For $20 you can by two of them and mix-and-match.

    I don't know anything about the future decks, but I got the Dragon deck and my brother got zombies. They're both pretty damn good straight out of the box.

    Personally I like to combine Snatch Steal with Bad Reaction to Somachi. Better than Change of Heart.

    Enemy Controller is NOT as good as Change of Heart.

    Change of Heart gives you complete control of an opponent's monster for only the cost of Change of Heart itself.

    Enemy Controller requires you tribute one of your monsters to control of 1 face-up monster.

    Change of Heart: Gain Control of a monster. Lose Change of Heart
    Enemy Controller: Gain Control of a FACE-UP monster. Lose Enemy Controller and one Monster on your side of the field.

    Enemy Controller is NOT that great, and you can only get a face up monster.


    Snatch Steal is far better than Enemy Controller, but not as good as Change of Heart. First off, the Snatch Stolen monster is quasi-perminant. That's good! But you can only snatch a face-up monster. That's half-bad. Plus, (barring Bad Reaction) your opponent is gaining LP. Also bad.

    Brain Control's text is this:

    "Pay 800 Life Points. Gain control of 1 monster on your opponent's side of the field until the end of the turn."

    I guarantee you that Brain Control will be limit one. Why? Change of Heart + 800 LP cost = Brain Control.


    I present to you the next staple: Brain Control!

    I have to admit, my neighbor got me into the game a couple of years ago. I was never serious about it, my deck was crap, but good enough for what I used it for. I'm dissapointed to see some good cards on the ban list, mostly dark hole and monster reborn.

    Well, the ban list is there for a reason. This is because the game stalled due to the over abundance of "staples." For example, before the ban list...every highly competitive deck ran the exact same 33 cards. The bans are there to open the game up. Thankfully, they are a GOD'S SEND. All the cards on the ban list are usually the ones most responsible for causing this state of blandness.

    For example, Dark Hole & Raigeki prevent people from playing any monsters that were too hard to summon. Rituals, Fusions, and Tribute monsters were worthless. Monster Reborn was a free special summon for NO cost. It could also Summon your opponent's dead monsters, once again keeping Tribute and High-Attackers out of decks. These cards were great in the beginning. Then they ruined the game once more balanced cards were released.

    But there are still powerful cards that have similar effects.

    Raigeki -> Lightning Vortex
    Dark Hole -> Torrential Tribute
    Monster Reborn -> Premature Burial

    The cards on the left are the banned and broken cards. The cards on the right are there relative equivlants, each with costs and downsides that make them more balanced and playable.


    Man, do I love Advanced Format!

    I'm really good at card games, the trouble is being unable to afford good cards. I get owned in Yugioh because the girl I would play against was beaten so badly by me in a fair non-altered deck vs. non-altered deck, that she bought some really expensive, and really powerful cards. Like that horn that lets you call two of those big white dragons.

    I stopped playing card games, because the cards they released started getting more and more gay. Like "Stasis" from Magic the gathering.
