A look back at 2009

Hmmm, its been a Long and rough Year, with 2010 coming soon I would like to Say something kinda important:

I started in March this year and its really been A LONG LONG Way just to get 1000 subs as of now.

I started with Zero Credibility of who I am or What my achievements are .

I feel that Youtube Has sort of become like a Subscriber game and after re-reading Goofy's Post on the changes to his channel, I removed My sub count in October because I feel that it can become a barrier for me and affect how I view Myself as a Yugituber.

I occasionally check the sub count twice a month out of curiosity but at the same time I don't really feel satisfied about having Subs, not that I mind having them in the first place XD

But as I look over 2009 , Its really been a long long Journey , I sort of have changed from the start of 2009 and have made new friends and contacts.

Overall, 2009 was pretty good, Can't wait for Iron Man 2 though =D

But yea , Yesterday I met HD Lam and LGQ in person at khatib, their Nice people so go check their Blogs out! Nowzzzzzz!

While your at it why not check out Goofy's blog too! :

I guess My Youtube Journey started in March so lets recount from there
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2009 Timeline :

March 2009 : Posted first Youtube Video - Macro Monarchs , felt nice nice.

Late March 2009: Filmed my first Tourney treating it as a tutorial level ( used Music because I was afraid of the noise being received badly by Youtube Audience.

April to Mid June : Did a Couple of Deck videos and duels ,all with Music, it sort of became my style but I decided that if I continue like this it would be impossible for me to tap into my full potential in Yugitubing so When SD17 : Warrior's strike came out I decided to use my voice and talk.

It was hard to do this Product review ( Took me 5 re takes.)

Overall it was pretty well received, but everyone was surprised that I could speak English xD

In the Span of June to August I made new Friends in the Youtube Community who still remain my MSN Pals to this day. I also acquired 100 subs in this period after much hard work.

I also filmed at Singapore's World Qualifiers for 2009 , even though this is the only big event Filming I ever did , I am kinda Content despite not being able to film future Big events in Singapore unless I had Approval for filming .

I soon became friends with Robbie or as Youtube knows him as mkohl40, his a really nice guy and me thinks you should subby to him.

http://www.youtube.com/user/mkohl40?blend=1&ob=4

His new channel design is cool too XD

Also , I havent changed my channel design since I first started and I know I will have to change it soon because its getting abit old T_T

August to now : Did 3 Duel Puzzles ( will decide on the third's future later.) and a few vlogs ( which kinda fails)

And made alot of new Friends, Got to know Baha better ,met Rau in person ( Nice guy in real life =D ) , Met alot of cool people.

Tested alot of decks and did alot of vids, Got to know alot of my subscribers through MSN and built long lasting friends.

Come to think of it 2009 was pretty cool.


In blogging:

Overall , Got to know Alot of Bloggers .


2010 Seems hopeful ,Iron Man 2 and a couple of neat Movies would be coming out, GS02 and DT0Cr8p will be out soon too.

WAAAA, DT08 Please Don't be Hype , Please at Least Have good Reprints like Allure, Kycoo ,TRAGOEDIAAAA, Babaros and Alot of others that would make my day.

Sigh, 2009 Was a Long year but at the end of it I feel that it was a Great year,

What was Your 2009 Year like?

Merry Berry Larry Christmasy!!!!!

Merry Christmas to you fellow Blogger/Human/Yugituber/Reader/Slacker/Cows who happen to stumble on this post of mine, which is the Day Christmas IS HERE!


MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!

LA LA LA LAA LA LA LA LA LA LANA NA NAA


So heres Yesterday in 5 Lines!!!

1) When to locals in Jurong

2) Didnt join the Tourney

3) Saw alot of G.B. action !

4) Filmed a couple of my friend's Creative decks ( Will decide which to upload because some need cutting due to bad dialogue/Bad Puns.

5) Tourney ended went to watch Avatar with Friends but decided not to as i ll be late for the Last train home so I watched it at an "Alternate" source.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AVATAR

Avatar was a pretty Awesome Movie.

Storyline was kinda predictable

< Spoiler tags !>

The story has elements from "The Last Samurai" and " Dances with Wolves" since it follows the :

Main character doing something because its his job or because he needs to have $$$ ( In this case it was that he needed $$$ to fix his legs.)

Jake scully ( Main character.) goes into the Avatar Program that allows the human mind to be digitally transferred into a genetically made body of the planets Natives.


An interesting thing here is that James Cameron ( The director of this Movie and alot of other ground-breaking ones.) chose to create the setting on the planet Pandora , where nature thrives alot and the sole reason why the humans went there is to harvest some Ore.

But the only problem is that the Natives of the planet : The Na vii ( Dunno if I spelt that right.) are kinda in the way and the humans want to make them leave so that they can harvest the Ore in peace.


Now heres a clear distinction :

Na vii are Primitive and use Bows and Spears and the various Creatures that they can "bond " to.

By Bond I mean putting their Hair into the creatures their riding.

Humans have robotic mechs...........yea that and guns and thats about it.

In the Movie, Pandora and the Na vii are more developed than the humans ( except for the main characters of course.) There was also the scientist played by the actress who played that Main character from Aliens and I thought of it as a sort of cameo because Aliens was also a James Cameron film XD.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

YUGIOH

Tomorrow I ll be meeting HD Lam and Duelist LCQ from M'sia and Film Rick's Christmas Tourney at Khatib's locals!


Expecting a huge turnout because the First would be Starlight Road if there are more than 24 players!

I wouldnt be joining because I may be helping Rick with the Tourney .

Hmmmm, Hopefully I can film more Creative decks.

Merry Christmas People! =D


I see alot of people doing Christmas Specials, wondering if I can think of one!

Stuff and Updates and more stuff. SIN!!!!!!!!

Was looking at Shriek when something interesting popped up.

Handless Fake


                                                             < Image from Shriek>

Continuous Trap

Effect: If you control a face-up "Infernity" monster, once per turn, you can remove play your entire hand face-up until your next Standby Phase

Combo with Necroface for RFG Milling EVERY TURN!




Behold! Necro Infernity! 




You can run Dimensional Alchemist to return lost Infernities and even be a Light target for Chaos Sorc.


And you can use D.D. Dynamite! Fun stuff!


-------------------------------------------


Stuff and Avatar


Been finishing up alot of the footage into videos for Youtube, really hope they get well received due to the obvious fact that I felt asleep on my Keyboard ......Again!


Hmmm, apparently I've used up alot of the footage into videos. Looks like I need to film more then.




Another thing I've been watching are Movie reviews.


One of which is Avatar, that James Cameron Movie.


Considering whether or not to watch it.


Its perks are having Awesome CGI effects but a heavy downside is that critics have noted that its story takes elements from "The Last Samurai", " " Pocahontas" and even the classic " Dances with Wolves."+ blah blah blah .


But near the end of the review, they do leave a good impression on the film and say that the ending battle was awesome.


Either way, I ll watch it sooner or later.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


DT08 : Worth it?


Another Issue that Seems to come up in my mind often is that DT08 May be too hyped up. 


Note that I am still getting it for Trishula and REDMD.


But thats just it, those are the key cards that alot of people are going to get the set for.


NeoFlamvells seem ok but like Ally Genex they are a subtype for an Original DT set. I am on the fence on whether this set will live up to the standards laid down by DT07.


Looking at the new Ally Genex Synchro - Triforce, I don't know what to say but what I do have hope for is Gold Series OCG 2010.


Its got JD in and unless they changed the rarity layout we may be seeing more players run Common JDs in their LS decks. ( Fun fun budget.)




Overall , I do hope that DT08's reprints are better because I feel that the previous DT Sets have covered alot of the important Reprints ( Icarus,Oppression,Prisma,D Hero Malicious, D Draw + many more.) and its kinda hard to pinpoint whats going to get reprinted.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
YGO Movie rumours ? Sin World ? 


Hopefully the YGO Movie ,despite being 49 mins long , would be a well rounded story with a twist that can shock me.

In the meantime, stay tuned for new videos . I am trying to learn more video editting skills to improve my video quality and standard, I think its fair that viewers should enjoy videos as much as I enjoy making them.




Which brings me to my last point of this post which is : Be content with what you have.


 I believe that one can choose to be content with what they have or become something more


But,


I also feel that if you aren't content, you should go all out and do your best. But at the end of the day, if you still feel as unsatisfied as you were at the start of the day then you probably wasted your day.




Either way,


Did you know that if the writers replaced Yusei with Jack in the " Saving Kiryu from a desert" arc in the Anime the WHOLE Arc would be over in 1 Episode??


Episode Structure


< Jack walks into town and sees Kiryu dueling that one forgettable dude from the arc's first ep. >




< Seconds later>


Kiryu :................Jack.............You just punched 1 wall and the entire town is now a Crater.


Jack : We 're GONE!


Kiryu: ........Wha < POW!>


Jack: ITS A GUT PUNCH M******** FAKKAAA!!




Lotten : Oiiiii! What about me? What about My AWESOME Gatling Ogre FTK thats gonna make me look like a serious and Pro Character!


Jack : The only thing anyone sees in you is a Boomer wannabe who would be thrown away like a used toy by the writers ( Example : That jailor dude who ran Iron Chain.)


Lotten : .............. *sniff * *sniff*


( Lotten was then admitted to a mental Hospital due to the mental ass beating that was Jack Atlus.)




Random viewer: But Jack, what about those 2 kids and the workers in the mine?


Jack : Paah! Those things sound like stuff that the writers would come up with to make this filler ep into some sort of arc where Yusei tries to be as Bad ass as me. Not like it' ll ever happen!




< And so Jack WALKED back ( Because this filler was deemed unworthy of D-Wheel goodness by the Great Jack Atlus.) dragging along Kiryu because apparently Jack is too Awesome to carry someone else.>




There , whats the Worst that could happen? I mean a town was reduced to a crater ,Lotten pissed himself at the sight of Jack Atlus and they all lived Happily ever after.




You know another interesting Plot twist that was meant for the previous season?


Jack Was the cause of the Zero Reverse Incident! He just sneezed when Yusei was announced as the main character which resulted in a shift in blah and ha and in turn created the event that served as a plot point for 5Ds.




Thanks for reading and Merry Christmas human! =D

Week Week!

YAY! Its the last day of school term!!

 A 2 week Christmas Break is on its way ( But Project group meetings = Not much of a holiday 0.0 ? ) So I may as well blog XD.


Been going around blogs, Youtube,Pojo and the Sg Forums lately. Current talk is on:

1) How the "Saving Kiryu from a desert town" Arc is going too long and ppl are complaining ( I am actually waiting for the whole thing to end so I can just watch it as a whole. Still watched until the current one though xD.)

2) Ra got Neutered by an unknown human force ( Paradox maybe? )  and now his behaviour as a God card is now more like a Sacred Beast Monster.

3) YGO Movie is 49 mins long ............Sad face =(

4) The usual speculations about Gold series 2 for OCG and complains on how broken OCG is with Judgement Dragon coming in GS02.

Theory Mode : CCV and monster reborn were reprinted in GS01 and got banned in Sept 2009 .
                        Hmmmm, wondering if Konami would do something like this again. 0.O



So yea, nothing much but lets look at some cards first:

TSHD ( I like the set's lettering xD  The Shining High Definition! )


From the Shining Darkness


Elekirin

Light /Thunder/Effect
1200 ATK/ 100 DEF
Effect:  This card can attack your opponent directly. When this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent as a result of a direct attack, your opponent cannot activate the effects of any SpellTrap, or Effect Monster Cards until theEnd Phase of this turn.

I see Potential in this card .........Provided he doesnt get killed by an attack stopper ( D Prison, Mirror force etc.)


To be able to prevent an Honest in an opponent's hand from dropping:


1) Whack with Elekirin 


2) Use bigger monster to whack Opponent Light Monster


3) Opponent tries to Drop Honest you go " NOOOOOOOOOO!" And Shock him with your Elekirin that looks like a Pokemon........ hmmmm Pokemon ....Yugioh .....YUGIMONZZZZZZ!




But a key flaw in this is when your opponent gets his turn, 1200 ATK is easy to run over so protection is needed. Still, being a Light ( Honest hint hint!) and being able to be searched out by Shining Angel Does give this card some potential in a Deck.




Next card : 


SYNCHRO EJECTION!


Normal Trap card :


Select 1 face up Synchro Monster on your opponent controls and remove it from play, and Your opponent draws 1 card.


Errr, an Anti-Synchro card. Breaks the Sun and Moon.


Well theres not really much to say about the card, it gets straight to the point, it kills Synchros. I feel that a number of people will be put off by your opponent drawing 1 card because some thing like this can happen:


Player N: I use SYNCHRO EJECTION!!!! On your Armed Wing So I can direct attack you with all my monsters!


Player E: AHA! I Had KURIBOH! in my Hand for dunno how long! I ll USE HIM!


Player N: NOOOOOZZZ! At least Ive reduced you to 200 Lifepoints,Draw your last card!!!


Player E: I DREW MY MIRACLE THANKS TO YOUR TRAP CARD! MY DRAW PHASE DRAW IS USELESS TO MEEEE! Activate! Burial from a Different Dimension! MAUHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHAH< Self poke >


Return Armed wing ,vayu and some random thing.


Player N : NOOOOOOO!!!!!! My life points is somehow 100 because the plot says so!!!


Player E : I use Vayu and Armed wing to bring out Armour mastaaaaa! and whack that Monarch of yours!!! Just nice too!


Player N: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!






And that was the story of how Micky mouse made cupcakes.




Overall, I like that Infernity is getting alot of new Support and I also like that Ice Boundary ( Ice Barrier in TCG) Spell, it hints that Konami is going to give out the spell and trap support for the DT Sets.


MaGoShin ( Fiend Roar Deities ) ............I wonder if their spell support isn't something like


Imagination mode ACTIVATE!!!


< Insert MGS Name here.>
Quickplay spell
Effect : Discard 2 Cards from your hand to add 1 level 4 or lower MGS from your deck or graveyard to your hand.




I just discard 2 Cerebal and add A Grimlo to Hand lol!






Thanks for reading!! =D

Hmmmm # 3 ( Read post if you can see behind the title.)

Hi =D


Seems like we are seeing alot more Dimensional Eatos Decks in Singapore X_X

This means that its expected to become the new deck to run.

What makes it so strong?

From my initial thoughts on it, its a Control deck that can apply heavy beatdown if done right.

After seeing more players running the deck, i've decided to text review it , giving as much detail as I can.


The More popular build people run is the build that has E HERO Another Neos ( Alius in TCG) and Gemini Spark.

Copy and Pasting from Shriek.

5th December article.

Dimensional Eatos

Total : 40

Monsters-13

3 Eatos
3 Babaros
3 Another Neos
2 Crusader of Endymion ( Alot of debate that this should be Evolector because ROTA is being ran.)
1 Stratos
1 D.D. survivor

Spells- 9

3 Dimensional Fissure ( Controls LS and Protects Grave from monsters to summon Eatos)
3 Gemini Spark
2 Emergency Call
1 ROTA

Traps-18  ( Alot of traps)

3 Skill Drain ( Controls LS .)
3 Sakuretsu Armour ( Can be 3 Starlight Road.)
3 Dimensional Prison
3 Dark Bribe ( negates any s/t hope opponent may have.)
2 Bottomless trap Hole
2 Macro Cosmos
1 Solemn
1 Mirror Force


Hiding this under the title of " hmmm #3" , this post will actually be an analysis on Dimensional Eatos. ( Reason why I like to hide my info with awkward titles is because this way I can fool people .)


Dimensional Eatos is an Expensive deck to make.

If it does become a full fledged meta deck, then it'll be the first control based deck that doesnt follow a set theme of monsters ( LS,BF,Glads,Monarchs are all examples of theme sets. Dimensional Eatos is more assorted and this hasn't happened in awhile.)

But its one of the best control-based decks that is rising in the meta.

Lets see the monsters first:

3 Eatos
3 Babaros

The 2 main beaters in the deck and shows us something about the deck.

Eatos needs to be played carefully and in some cases, relies on Dimensional Fissure to be successful.

Babaros gets the full potential out of skill drain.

A thing that players must know about Eatos when running her here is that she can clog the hand easily if there is a monster in grave.

This is the part where we see the player's Playstyle.

The Dimensional Eatos player would have to develop his field for 2 things:

- Control the opponent ( Skill drain ,D. Fissure and Macro)

- Control their own field ( No monsters in grave , protect their assets ( Skill drain ,D.Fissure and Macro.)


3 Another Neos
2 Crusader of Endymion ( Can be Evolector.)
1 Stratos/Airman
1 D.D. Survivor

The 5 Gemini targets for Gemini spark plays 2 important roles:

- Be 1900 Beatsticks
- Be fodder for Babaros and Gemini spark.

D.D. Survivor is for the Obvious D.D. Elements. Stratos should be used before Skill drain is out. Simple enough logic.


On to the spells

3 Dimensional Fissure
3 Gemini spark
2 Emergency call
1 ROTA


Spells play a key part in the deck.

Why?

ROTA And E Call : They ensure that there is a monster in your hand. This is IMPORTANT because you don't run that many monsters.

Gemini Spark : This card is your MST to Royal Decree, Your jinzo killer and ensures that Your gemini that got targetted by a bottomless did not die in vain. + This card lets you draw, and drawing cards is important for this kind of control deck.

Dimensional Fissure : Helps Eatos in mid to end parts of the game.


Now we move onto the Heaviest part of the deck : Traps


3 Starlight road
3 Dimension Prison
3 Skill Drain
3 Dark Bribe
2 Macro cosmos
2 Bottomless trap Hole
1 Mirror force
1 Solemn Judgement


Traps sort of define the deck, its where most of the control in the deck comes from.


3 Dark Bribe+3 Starlight Road and Solemn : Control cards, in road's case you get a free stardust too.(Note that Stardust is also a protection measure and can beat off jinzo.) Dark Bribe is irritating.

3 Skill drain and 2 Macro cosmos : Control elements and helpers to the 2 Main characters ( Eatos and Babaros) Hurts the Opponent greatly too.

2 Bottomless,3 Dimension prison and Mirror force : Non-Speed 3Traps that disrupt the Opponent in their phases. ( Summoning a monster and Battle phase attacking.)





Weaknesses of the Deck


However, every deck has a weakness, this deck is no exception.

- Trap Negation

- 1 by 1 destruction

- A monster in the grave = No Eatos + Eatos can become a dead draw

- Has a high chance of trap opening hand ( Not a major problem if you drew the right traps.)

-Reliant on draw phase ( The deck doesn't have a fixed draw engine and will need to rely on the draw phase, Gemini spark is ok but can only happen 3 times at best.)


But these weaknesses can be easily overturned if the player does the right plays at the right time.

For D. Eatos players:

Expect a s/t field of 3 to 5 set cards most of the time.
Your Beatsticks ( Gemini ,Eatos and Babaros.) will be luring traps and destruction cards most of the time,
Counter them with Sparks, Dark Bribe and Solemn.

KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR TRAP NEGATORS OR MASS SPELL DESTRUCTION, STARLIGHT ROAD DOES NOT CONFIRM SAVE YOU IN EVERY DUEL!


For players fighting Against D. Eatos:

- Side decking is key

- Play much more carefully than usual

- CONSTANTLY check the opponent's graveyard. Why? count how many Dark Bribes , D. Prisons, Starlight Roads,Sparks and Skill drain are inside. Assume that they run 3 .



Psycho factor :

When playing against D. Eatos , I noticed a sort of psychological fear that stems from seeing alot of set s/t.

A way you can break through this fear is to "Assess the situation".

If he sets 5 s/t with No summoning, the last card in his hand must be a s/t .

look at your hand and plan. If nothing can be done then its ok it happens.
 
Motivate yourself , if you experience a sense of fear of losing or a fear of seeing so many s/t face down that you cannot predict. Motivate yourself to break past all that and know that Someone, Somewhere and Sometime has been in the same situation And won.
 
 
 
Thats all I have for now,
 
Thanks for reading! =D

Tourney Report 12/12/2009 : NecroFace says Merry Christmas from the RFG Zone!

Greets and tweets Fellow Humans from No Man's Land!

Today I ran a Necroface deck ( Surprise ,Surprise.)

Its Not Shuten Zombies , It just.......well nevermind this will probably be linked to a vid i'm making soon.


Anyway, Heres the popular segment: My Day in 5 Lines!!!!


1) Went to Khatib CC bringing Junk and Debris. UndeadLord ( I wanted to run this.) and A Necroface deck That I was wondering whether or not it would work.

2) Joined the Tourney, won 2 Dimensional Eatos Decks, but got KILLED by Baha in Top 6.

3) Went for Dinner with Baha and Co.

4) Realised that I Forgot to get my top 6 Prize and went home sleepy......

5) Remembered that I filmed and am now blogging while I listen to random answers to Christmas like

" How do Snowmans have  *sX ? "

" You see, when a Snowman loves a Snowoman ( hehe, only 1 w =D ) , They do stuff and ()&*&^^& and then they ^%&$#%$#% till their carrot shaped &^*^s turn into Ice!"

And that was Why we have Snowman Eater, because Snowpeople having < TOOT?> is too disgusting!


ok, down to Serious Business, it has come to my knowledge ( Yes, I have knowledge! =O !?) that alot of people have started to play Dimensional Eatos , I see the numbers rising and people wonder whether this is the "New Age Meta deck to play!" So Here are some tips to beat them:

-Moved and shredded into tiny tiny hints in the Match reports . hehehe ,I'm evil that way =D


Match 1 Dimensional Eatos ? ( I think its more of an E Hero Gemini Beat, but it had alot of similarities to Dimensional Eatos.) OXO

Game 1: I just rushed and D.D. Bomb him.

Game 2: We played until my deck had 1 card left.

Game 3 : I played more cautiously and wriggled out of a bad hand.


Match 2 VayuLord /VayuSworn/Benjamin  XX

Game 1: I draw Crap and lose eventually ( Couldnt recover X_x )

Game 2: I milled out the top 10 cards from our decks thanks to Allure of Darkness -Out Necroface+ Gold Sac the second one.

Then he drew Burial from D.D. and brought out Dark Arm and I Diao in my head X_x


Match 3 Dimensional Eatos ( Highlight!) XOO ( I Know this is DEFINITELY an Eatos Deck, Why? There was Eatos and Alot of cards similar to this build :
http://shriek.twoday.net/stories/6077743/ )


Game 1 : I didnt know what deck he was running and soon, I get my Ass handed to me when Skill Drain was out.

Game 2 : This was a Great Duel!

I sided in 2 Royal Decree, 2 Nobleman of EXTERMINATION and 2 Malevolent catastrophe.

I Exterminate his Starlight Road = Best moment of the day!

See kids! THE ROAD CAN BE BROKEN. Now stop thinking that Starlight Road = Must quit until next format!

I Outed alot of stuff since Necroface resolves while shes/his out of play ( Skill drain did hurt my valleys again.)

< I had to get rid of every s/t he had 1 by 1 , it was hard!>


This is when I Malevolent his skill drain when Babaros attacked valley ( Re- enables Valley's effect.)

Eventually, I D.D. Bomb him.


Game 3:

It is at this point whereby I got over that initial fear of the deck and realised that I MUST Get rid of each and everyone S/t in order to go on with my Standard Win strategy ( D.D. Bomb.)

Dimensional Eatos is a Deck that Counters your win strategy ( D. Fissure, Skill drain, Starlight road, Dark Bribe, etc.) That causes a problem for you if your deck has a win strategy ( LS is milling and utilizing the Grave , Zombies is sending to the grave and manipulating the graveyard to its max potential and etc.)

Its a deck that causes you to " face your fears" and make you manually kill each and every s/t while enduring a barrage of attacks from Babaros and Eatos etc.

A key problem I noted is that there are too many traps and too few monsters. However, when a monster is in hand then it can stay on the field for quite some time.

So just side in Trap negation or singular destruction cards to avoid Starlight road.

On to the match.

I use Royal decree when he had 4 or 5 s/t and he was forced to use Solemn to prevent future damage.

After that I experienced 2 or 3 Dark bribe negations and skill drain out.

He successfully Dark Bribed all my D.D. Bombs so I had to focus on good beatdown, but Babaros was still too strong until I got rid of Skill drain and E Hero Another Neos .

After awhile, Babaros was gone ( By chaos sorcerer I think.) and I played defensive because I had damn little lp left ( 200 or 1000+ ) but he drew no Monsters and I synchro-ed ( Yes this was the only time I synchro-ed in the Tourney!) For BRD to whack him to death.

Phew!


Dimensional Eatos.....was harder that I thought in Theory.

Top Rounds Match ( Angels) OO

Game 1: Necroface just ****-ed a bunch of angels and D.D. Bomb was fun!

Game 2 : DarkLord Zerato killed my gorz, but thanks to a nice combo with Dark Armed. I D.D. Bomb Him 3 times!!!!!



Top 6 Match ( Boss Baha) MGS Synchro XX

Game 1 : I am stunned to see how fast MGS  ( Magoshin) Monsters swarm the field and see Brionac Bounce my Sangan back to hand and 2 Legions appearing to kick my ass!

Game 2: I use 2 Necroface and was later on forced into a corner. Rather than dying like a pussy, I decided to fight on, Killing Ganashia with a 1800ATK Dimensional Alchemist and A Normal summoned Necroface of 2400 ATK to kill Legion.

After awhile I die X_x

At least now I know this decks potential, will continue to mod it.

But next week, I feel like playing Chaos Control or Anti- Meta.

hmmmm.

Filming time was fun though.

After that was dinner.

And now I am looking at my cam and com typing this line XD

That was my Saturday I guess, I forgot to collect my top 6 Prize X_x

Thanks for reading ^^

Neuxcharge's Tourney Report 05/12/2009 : The Day Self Touching became an Addiction for Everyone!

Self-Touching is a scientific term to describe the feeling One feels after doing something for a damn long period of Time.

In Yugioh, Self Touching can cause the Following:

-Your Opponent becoming Sian ( Frustrated, Diao, Pissed ,etc.)

- Your Opponent will fantasized about strangling you ( DANGER!)

- Your Opponent will Look through your deck and hope to netdeck it ( Or be like Weevil and put in an insect card inside.)

- I am Rambling again!


So, here is my Day in 5 Lines!!!!!!!!

1) Went to Khatib Locals

2) Nearly came late

3) Got into Top 3 and got Second Prize: Ehren

4) Saw Baha and others Self Touching themselves

5) Filmed Baha's Self-touching and some deck vids



So heres My report

Deck used: UndeadLord


Match 1 Some Friend ( Oppression BF) XOO

Game 1: He wins after awhile, it was here that I realised that Wulf Loves my Hand ( REMEMBER THIS!)

Game 2: He used Skill Drain, I tio Stun Until I drew My Beautiful Giant Trunade and Double Judgement his &*%!

Game 3: He double Whirlwind and I blow it all Up with a Heavy Storm.


Abit Happy, but the Shop was getting too cram! Need to escape and sleep!!!!

After a while Round 2 Starts

Match 2: Sam ( Twilight) OO ( REMEMBER HIM FOR LATER!!)

Game 1: I self Touch myself with 2 Lumina and 1 Garoth milling 2 Necro and my beloved Zombies!

Game 2: His Tragos and Gorz and Chaos Sorc were good, But Brionac loves me.......... I guess.


I relax and Hang loose as Rick said that those with perfect round wins can relax and skip round 3

Soon its Top rounds .

Match 3 : Hong li ( G.B.) OO

Game 1: He plays defensive and I can understand that ( Honest in hand is Psycho fun!)

Game 2: I Drop a JD and Goyo when he had Little Hand left.


Match 4 : Sam ( VayuLord?) OO

Game 1: My best Turn in the Whole Tourney , I remember it :

Charge: milled Lumina ,1 Lyla and 1 Spell ( Searched for Lumina)

Summon Lumina, Special Lumina, Special Garoth ( Discarded for effects: 1 Necro)

End Phase Milled 3 for Lumina and 2 For Garoth

Milled the next 3 and for Garoth I milled 2 Wulfs!

Drew 2 and had 2 Honests in Hand now!

Game 2: He used Light Mirror, I used Shadow Mirror. Battle of the Mirrors ( Hint: Honest Loves me.)


So I was in Top 3 Swiss

And I face Sam ( Twilight Again)

Final Round : Sam ( Twilight) OXX

Game 1: I use 2 Lumina and eventually milled 2 Wulfs with 1 Honest in my hand .

Game 2: Mills were all Spells so Judgement wasn't happy.Sam played well here.

Game 3 : The climatic shocker/Plot twist Opening hand: Double Wulf X_x

So I died trying to rebound from having 2 dead Wulfs in hand with no Solar Recharge so I decided to go out doing something stupid and just Foolish Burial a Lyla and Monster reincarnation her discarding 1 Wulf. And in the end I milled 2 Burial from D.D. and 1 Honest ( Cries in Fantasy!)

Position: Second ( Top 3 was in swiss format.)

Overall It was a Great Day =D

I used My UndeadLord as the test deck against alot of Self Touching decks and had alot of Fun!! =D

Will be Going totrain with SazaPOPO and some others on Saturday and train them for the Team Tourney the next day (Note: I can't attend the Team Tourney thing so count me out =D )

Thanks for reading and Have a Great self touching session!

The Starlight Road Issue........ WARGH! and LOVE!

Hello again =D

Heres some advice for Yugitubers intending to do Deck videos in School Areas ( Be it College,university etc. )

Its really Hard to look for a quiet place for privacy X_x

Unless you book a quiet room somewhere, but here is my experience.

I just spent 20 + minutes walking around and looking for a place to film a deck review during my 40 + minutes break. And everywhere I went seems to have random people walking across me when I'm filming X_x

So i ended up hiding in a well lit location X_x

Either way, i still got filming done, but quality was definitely not the best .

In other news, I am doing this 4 Hours before my test XD

So i ll keep this pretty simple.

I recently had a chat with an old friend of mine who quit Yugioh during the Perfect circle era ( Disk Commander+ LADD Fun!) and was considering to come back after reading alot about what was new and about the New decks he missed.

Now this chat actually went to being a talk about Starlight Road. And after the convo was over,I felt that I should Blog about this.

So, it appears that Starlight Road ( SR for short) has become the most splashable card in this format as of late and being a $$$ card doesn't help its already infamous reputation.

And the topic me and my friend discussed was whether Money cards affect a Player's decision to quit or return to Yugioh.

I find it amusing that players who have played years on a cardboard card game would want to consider quiting due to the release of 1 "Godlike in their eyes" card.

So without further Ado, Neuxcharge of ChargeLand shall now state the reasons why one Shouldn't quit the Game they spend so much time on , over 1 card.


1) Its a broken piece of cardboard , nothing new.

2) Its still have WEAKNESSES , its not a God card ( There is no godlike card that can cause 50 to 60% of the YGO Population to pack up and quit.)

3) Think about your friends!( What would they think of you if you quit over 1 card??)

4) Think of JINZO! ( Think about how you use your Heavy Storm with a Jinzo out on the field while your Opponent cries as he sends his 5 s/t cards to the grave! )

5) Think of your achievements! - Because you can gauge how far you came from Point A to Point B and quit when a $$$ card comes out.

6) K, I've ran out of reasons.

So , to convince the people not to quit over the release of 1 $$$ and broken card, I shall now list the following cards that can bypass and hopefully KILL the Road.


Jinzo : Block the Road

Giant Trunade : Bounce the Road ( Joey would be proud, 2 of his cards can defeat a futuristic card!)

MST: DIAO the road ( Made the word up!)

Breaker! : The Release of the Road was predicted to cause ppl to cry, so Breaker shall be unlimited to counter this! 3 Breaker vs 3 Road , Yugi vs Yusei, BREAK THE ROAD!!!

Nobleman of extermination : I love this card. I Seriously Do!

Royal Decree: BLOCK THE ROAD.........ROYALLY!

Trap Stun: STUN the road.

Royal Oppression : OPPRESS THE STARDUST!

Dark Bribe and/or Solemn Judgement: Bribe the road, OR LEAD IT TO JUDGEMENT!!!

Creature Swap : Couldn't stop the road? Its ok! Swap  a sangan for a Stardust Today! Now only 0.99 cents!

Cold Wave then Synchro For BRD! : Long tactic , but it still kills the Road!



I know that players would set the road with Some protection or backup ( Dark Bribe , Solemn , Fake Trap etc.) But this is when your SKILL OF ANTI SCRUB!! comes in!


Theory of Anti-Scrub ( Prototype)

Opponent filled his backrow with 5 s/t ?? Scared for your future? Everyone around you think you will Scrub?
If so, then Anti Scrub is the way to go! ( Note: I have no idea what I am Typing about!)

ANTI ROAD DECK!!!!!!!!


WARGH! You are pissed! and want REVENGE!!!!! Tired of Losing to that pesky Starlight road?? FEEL LIKE EATING THAT STARDUST DRAGON BEFORE Your opponent slowly takes it out of that Extra deck???

WAAAAAAAAAAAAA

ANTI ROAD DECK!!!!!!!!!!!

Total : 40 cards


Monsters-18

1 DaD ( Look kids! he only destroys 1 card each time!)
3 Jinzo
2 Strike Ninja
2 Jinzo Returner
2 Armageddon Knight
2 D.D. Scout Plane
2 Breaker
1 Gale ( Halve Stardust!)
1 Cyber Dragon
1 Sangan
1 Cyber Dragon



Spells ( JUST SPAM!)-18

3 Fissure ( Don't use when Stardust is out!)
3 Nobleman of Extermination
2 Foolish Burial
2 Allure of Darkness
2 Creature Swap
1 Giant Trunade
1 MST
1 Future Fusion
1 Cold wave ( Optional!)
1 ROTA
1 Brain control ( Brain controlling Stardust and tribute for Jinzo IS FUN! )


Traps - 4

3 Royal Decree
1 Call of the Haunted


This is Jinzo + Strike Ninja control + ANTI ROAD SPAM! and I haven't made it yet! I just thought of this in class ( And Ironically, I am still IN Class!)

So feel free to use this Deck Against any Deck that has Starlight Road in it! And if you DO destroy the Road......Alot, please inform me of any fixes that led to the Road's destruction!

This is Neuxcharge Signing off from Class ! =D
Take Care!

Post,Post,Post, NET! =D

Today's topic will be netdecking via online mediums

Netdecking is a common problem in Yugioh Communities all around the world. And believe or not, it is also an irritating issue in an Argument.

Recently, I was notified by a good friend of mine from Malaysia that there was some sort of Argument going on in the Shriek OCG News Site.

So being the Neux i am, i decided to go check to check it out of boredom for being in class ( Ironically : I am Typing this as my teacher is blabbing about a subject i studied the night before X_x )

Disclaimer :This is just for showing purposes, Neux is not responsible if an Actual Argument gets into the comments or Chatbox. I LOVE COOKIES!


http://shriek.twoday.net/stories/6066684/

Seems like this is a 3 day old post on Shriek .

Its a flame war in the comments section regarding the Decks in question.

Personally, i find the decks really creative =D , I mean c'mon!  Personally I feel that Duelists who have been exposed to the meta too much, Have developed a "Mindset" that creates a standard in their minds of how decks should run.

These Decks are Awesome! Reason because they serve as Reminders of what Yugioh can truly be! A fun and creative game ! =D

Kudos to the makers of the decks too! ^^

Ok, but what does this have to do with netdecking via Online mediums.

Lately, i've been getting a dumpload of PMs and Comments on Youtube for decklists of certains decks ( *cough* Empty Jar * cough* )

< Teacher walks pass my com, switch screen for 2 mins!>

Ok, there is this issue on Youtube that i will address in a future video, and i also noticed this in Blogs, Forums and Sites like Shriek.

That is the questions for decklists and requests for the deck etc.

I get that netdecking means different things to many people. So i'll just say the Top 5 variants of netdecking mindsets that come into my mind like......Now!

1) I want to net so I can master the decktype in question!

2 ) I will net so I can prove to the people in locals who bully me that i am strong!

3) I shall Net so I can be like the person i admire!

4 ) I shall net since I have all the stuff needed sleeping in my Binder!


5) I will definitely net to utterly Pwn someone to the point where the only way to win me is to suck my ########### #$$#%$#!

Ok , don't know where the last one came from but you get what i mean!


Online places that can be accessed for Decklists ( Blogs, Youtube videos, Forum etc.) Can serve as inspiration or fall victim to netdecking X_X

Thats a fear and a very good reason why people don't post their decks online, because stuff like this can happen!

Senario ( Worst ending.)

ND: Wow this deck is strong!

Mr Original : I just posted this decklist for your viewing pleasure!

ND : < Net!>




ND : Behold! I am now the top in my locals!! MUAHHHAHAHA!

Friend of ND : eeeeee, his deck so strong!

Friend of ND :

Friend of ND makes alternative deck to counter ND's Netted deck OR Runs the same thing to piss ND off!

< Insert Chaotic Rumble here!>

And that is a senario of Netdecking!

Point 1 :Creativity goes on a vacation!

Point 2 : Its like stealing........ only that its online + easy to get away with .

Point 3 : It creates Paranoia! ( Owners who made the build or deck will withhold the decklist from said online mediums.)


Is there a solution to netdecking? No.


Because at the end of the day, it is human to desire and the fuel for this desire is either Fame or power.

Believe it or not, behind netdecking are multiple traits which i believe can twist a person into something his not.

I know that you can probably list down more netdecking senarios but in the end, the internet is a gold mine for resources and people WILL and CAN take advantage of this.


Moral of the rant/story/ text : Netdecking exists. We as players cannot deny it, it can be good,bad or neutral in the eyes of different people.

What does it mean for us bloggers, Yugitubers,Forum threaders? Well, to be honest there is no Direct solution to solving the netdecking except for holding back the decklists. But if we do, are we selfish for protecting something we made ? O_o

I feel that Netdecking is situational, at first i thought that netdeckers really have no moral qualms over what their doing, but i slowly realised that in some special cases netdecking does help people, it gives them personal hope and understanding. So , i am at a loss to judge netdecking as a whole.

But, at the end of the day, on that Shriek post, was the proof that underneath it all, people DO know that netdecking is heavily present and that alone can start up an Argument.

I hate Arguments , doesn't solve anything and in the end it can hurt people X_x


So thats my rant ( Yes, its a real rant!) that i want to do on Youtube BUT Don't have the time for.

Now as the teacher is walking to my desk, i ll have to sign off!

Note : These are just my thoughts on netdecking, i think i have missed a couple of points but i am sure you readers get the picture . Thankies! =D

Cyber Zwei Deck : A look =D

Hi ! =D




Cyber Dragon Zwei has become a major factor in players rebuilding their Cyber Dragon based decks .


Lets go to the start of this deck with the history of the Cyber dragon.



Cyber Dragon is a defining Card in Zane Truesdale/ Ryo Marufuji from Yugioh GX. He ran 3 of it and in this format if a Character deck was to be built around him it would have to break some rules ( Cyber is limited.)



The sheer usage of the card ensured a 2100 Beatstick with near to 0 effort. This card was a major card used in Monarchs as it was a quick Beatstick to hit the field !!! ( Also, it uses up your opponent's Bottomless so your Monarchs don't get hit.)



On September 2008 , Cyber dragon went from Semi limited ( it got semi-ed in March 2008) to Limited, marking what most players said was the " end of the Chimeratech OTK deck" The OTK deck was Popular in the past, but due to the Banlist constantly chipping off the key cards ( Future fusion, Overload fusion and Cyber Dragon.) the deck's popularity died down and the limiting of Cyber dragon confirmed its death.



While people were concerned about Cyber being limited, others were wondering if the Cyber dragon fusions ( Twin, End and Overdragon, not fortress because it still sees play.) had any future left in the game.



Now we come to Cyber Dragon Zwei ( Zwei means two in German for those of you who don't know.) While the GX Manga has potential to show new Support as Ryo is in it, this card has many perks and potential to bring back the Cyber decks of old.



Cyber Dragon Zwei








Level 4 Light Machine



1500 ATK/ 1000 DEF



Effect: If this card attacks an opponent's monster, this card gains 300 ATK during theDamage Step. Once per turn, you can reveal 1 Spell Card in your hand to your opponent to treat this card's name as "Cyber Dragon" until the End Phase. Also, if this card is in yourGraveyard, this card's name is treated as "Cyber Dragon".




Lets look at the advantages this card has:

1) Becoming Cyber dragon in the grave And on the field ( If spell is shown) - This perk is the main feature that this card is being see in the deck. Being cyber dragon enables the Cyber Fusions to come out and make the deck Have 4 Cyber dragons instead of 1. Being a Cyber in the grave opens up the Chimeratech OTK as well ( Depending on the number of machines).

Also, heres an obvious tip Reveal Evolution Burst and Zwei becomes a Cyber dragon and shoot!

2) Zwei is a Light Level 4 Machine - support cards that can help this card to be fully utilized include Jade Knight, Honest, Shining Angel . And with these support cards, you can expect Newer cards like Lord British to be used and simulate an alternate OTK!!!

3) It can gain 300 ATK when it attacks an opponent's Monster- This part is often underlooked but the importance of this can be used to run down monsters that have less than 1800 ATK or ram at 1800 ATK Monsters like Kycoo. Also, people forget that this ability of Gaining the ATK can help to save your Honests in hand!



Heres a decklist for a Cyber Zwei deck if your interested!

Monsters-19
3 Cyber Zwei

3 Honest

2 Lord British

2 Shining angel

2 Jade Knight

2 Proto Cyber Dragon

2 Hex stone-Light

1 Gorz

1 Cyber Dragon

1 Sangan
( Note: You can replace Sangan and Gorz with Cyber Eltanin if you want =D )



Spells : 12

3 Evolution Burst ( Sometimes 2 works just fine!)

2 Power Bond

1 Future Fusion

1 Overload Fusion

1 Heavy Storm

1 MST

1 Limit Break

1 Lightning Vortex

1 Giant Trunade

Traps : 9

1 Solemn Judgement

1 Call of the Haunted

1 Mirror Force

1 Torrential

2 Bottomless trap Hole

3 Trap Stun





Extra Deck:



3 Chimeratech Fortress Dragon ( Depends on the deck you face, Machines are fun!)

2 Chimeratech Over dragon ( Only when you want to go for the Kill!)

2 Cyber Twin Dragon ( Most common to be brought out.)

2 Cyber End dragon ( Not so easy to bring out.)



This is a Trap and spell Balanced build, trap stun solves a couple of problems concerning the OTK Prevention traps like Threatening Roar, Rainbow life, Waboku etc. And the amount of traps, though abit too much, works pretty well.



Stuff to clear the field- Mirror force, Torrential , 2 Bottomless, 3 Evo Burst, Lighting Vortex, Heavy storm, MST, Giant trunade.



However, a Problem that can occur is when your opponent Drops Battle Fader ( Another new card from ABPF) Caution is required to do well.



Also, if you want to have a spell based build, Just use 3 Royal Decree and maybe 1 Call of the Haunted and use alot more spells to make up for the lack of traps!


This deck can do the following OTKS:



Cyber Twin OTK ( With either Honest or Power Bond or Limit Break)



Chimeratech OTK



Lord British OTK



I would say that this deck isn't bad, but i feel that it can improve as time goes by.

Thanks for reading!!! =D

Youtube video update and my experience in collecting Duel footage these past few days!

Hi again guys and gals and aliens in my closet who read this fun line in a blog!

Today, i ll just be updating your guys on what to expect in the upcoming vids

Duels and the ABPF Review ( Which was done last night)

However, Youtube is being retarded again and Not only making my uploading time 5 HOURS! but also rejecting my video files halfway through.

I have been sitting on my ass doing the videos and uploading the whole the day that i had to miss today's Local Tourney XD

But its ok, i got to spend time reading everyone's Blogs , watching alot of videos on cows jumping off airplanes and other things that i shall not mention.

These past few weeks has been Hectic, i was doing a school project for the past 2 weeks and just handed it up yesterday.

After that i remembered i had alot of footage that needed to be done in videos.

It seems like alot of people in Singapore are playing more theme decks, and their really pushing for excellence in these Theme decks.

I've seen :

Empty Jar, Chain Burn, Exodia Scrub, Retarded OTK ( Don't get me started on it . Hint: 37 monsters and 3 spells Thats the deck!!!) and others like

EHERO Beat, Blue eyes Hopeless Dragon, Aliens , DragunitySworn, Juracs. MAGOSHIN (Aka Fiend Roar Deity/Demon Roaring Gods/the Deck that everyone wants to make if they had the $$$/ Not Scrub alot deck.) And of course, the newly popular Cyber Zwei Decks.

Seems like after the Asia " Qualifier" , There has been many theme deck players refocusing on the extra decks that they made. This is Inspiring as now i see more Fun fun Decks pwn the crap out of decks that are Meta.

I took footage of a Lightlord deck vs an Empty Jar deck. But Youtube is not giving me a good time uploading. Seriously though, i'm glad that there is this increase in theme decks, makes my day abit better to see more creativity =D

7: 10 AM: Made my way to SMU's Settler's Cafe.

-Met my friends there , Friends from everywhere in Singapore ( Quite scary to be honest.)

Open Album = Swarming the field niaaa!!!!

Anyway, to be certain, There were lesser Lightlord players than I expected, but it was still ALOT!

There were G.B. and Graveyard BF, No Zombie Synchro as Expected.

8:40 AM :Walked Around to inspect the players and Judge's Table, looks like alot of people are camping around in Areas.

( Everyone who joined, acquired a 2010 Asia mat!!! Will as Sazabi for pics of his lol XD )

9+ AM : I inform my friends that i'm not joining , they don't believe me. Also, i finally acquire 2 Jap Kycoos =D !!!

Still 10 + AM : Bad End Queen Dragon + Crystal Beasts= O.O

11+ AM: Most of my friends win their rounds, happy for them but warned them to becareful as i am developing some hunch, dunno on what though.

12+ AM : I go for Lunch .

1 + PM : Second round commenced i think. Did some trades and Buys.

2+ PM : Trader life is boring niaaaaaa! Filmed abit of casual Dueling, friends win and Lose all over the place, Can't keep track of who win , who lose X_X

Still 2+ PM : I start to see some pissed off people, starting to see the mental toll on people.

Still 2+ PM : Dueling with my Junk and Debris deck against Mr R.'s Oppression BF Deck ................hmmmm, lets see :

Junk and Debris with bad Hand on first turn ( 2 Glow moss, 2 Junk Synchron, 1 Pot of Avarice and 1 MST )

Errrr, yea my J&D Luck was gone for the day X_X


3+ PM : Mr R.( Errrr, dude from Khatib/Shopkeeper)  Sees My newly pulled Black Rose Witch , Loli POWA Ensues!!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Still 3+ PM : Walking around and Randomly looking at people walking....Tired at this point in time!

4: 00 PM: Saw a 1 Dollar foil card SALE!!! WARGH!!!!! GO BUY ARHHH!!

- Its a good thing that alot of people were Having their rounds at this point in time =D

- KS-ed everything that was useful, now all thats left is a bunch of cards that few would use.......... like WATAPON!!! muhahahahaha!!!

5 :00 PM : Informed by the Tourney Organiser that my services is not allowed for the Top 16 X_X

Still 5: 00 PM : My friends finish their rounds while i walk around mentally probing people's current Mental status.

6 to 7 or 8 PM : Top 8 instead of top 16 caused all my friends to get the kick.
My Mat went missing and i was helping a kid find his Synchro pile, after awhile i find my Mat in my own bag! ( Facepalm to Self! ) The kid's Synchro pile is still missing X_x


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sum up:

- People get disappointed for good reasons : Too sudden change in rounds ( First it was 5 rounds, then changed to 4 rounds.)

- I "THINK" that the % of the following goes as follows:
      - Lightlords : 60 % ( Definitely around this percentage!)
      - G.B. And BF Decks : 35 %
      - Rouge and Uncommon decks: 5 % ( I saw 1 Burn deck, 1 Anti Meta, 1 Random Control and 1 or 2 more Decks that can be classified as Rouge or uncommons.)

-155 Players joined. ALOT When home emo due to the "sudden" change in format.

- No footage of Top 8 , only casual duels i got from sitting around ( Note: I wasn't allowed to film Top 8.

- Overall, those who came to compete kinda got abit cheated in my Opinion, but the Playmat looked pretty cool =D

Now as i write these last words, i can feel a heavy Storm of Flames coming onto the SG Forums. I can just smell the Flames and Hate of all the Players X_x

I seriously feel that the players got cheated.

Yugioh 5Ds Episode 84: The Epic Jack Episode!

Episode 84 of Yugioh 5Ds shall go on as one of the Best episodes i've seen in this season of 5Ds.

Reasons?

Number 1 : 3 Red Daemons Dragons!!!! Seriously! Fake Jack summoned a Bunch of Monsters in 1 Turn! And his Not rich! His a Robot!!!!

Number 2 : 7000 ATK Saviour Daemons Dragon!

Number 3: Errr, Dark Bug's Second appearance?

Number 4: Seems like Trust Guardian Can be quite Broken if :

Use Trust Guardian And Synchro for Stardust ,

If Trust Guardian gets made and Has its effect lingering ( Unlike Hyper Synchron's case where Stardust would become 2500 ATK if Stardust used its effect and returned at the end Phase.) then Stardust can stay on the Field for a Very Long time =D

That is......unless your opponent Doesnt have Caius or Evac Device or even a Reprinted D. Prison etc.

Overall: I liked this Episode, It felt like that 1 Episode in Yugioh where Yugi had to duel Ghost Kaiba ( Gay clown? O.O ) But in this case its Jack vs Fake Robo Jack!!!!



Wait a Minute........

Kaiba "Ghost"

'Ghost' in 5Ds was a Robot

Fake Jack summoned 3 RDD  in 1 Turn

Kaiba Ghost Summoned 3 BEWD in 1 Turn

O.O

OMG, Their Recycling the old Filler Episode Structures!!!!

WARGHH!!!

Or it could be my imagination!

Either way, it doesnt change the fact that Asia Qualifier is coming soon and ABPF Can't be used.

Battle Fader X_x

Piano Tuner wants to suck some Vayu Synchros !!!!!!

Testing decks and techs : Oppression BF

Part 1 : Video Upates + BF Testing

The first 5 Vlogs should be up either tonight or tomorrow morning or afternoon, Ive been staying up late at night doing these vlogs on Asia, Updates etc. And most of the time i've found it abit harder than i thought since in the middle of a vlog you can actually lose track of time X_x

But anyway, i have been testing Oppression BF in hopes of using it in Asia ,along with a D.D. Deck ( In Hopes of people Actually running D.D. For Asia. Trust me , i know some of you will be running D.D. And praying for a Graveyard based deck matchup!!!)

Lets start this then =D

Oppression BF

Changes to deck:

Currently , i m running 2 Oppression with the 3rd in the side deck.

I m still not running Dark Armed because i can't find a copy of it.

I'm now Maining 2 Kycoos and no Caius, reason being because my luck is abit hard for these past few days.



Tested this deck against Lightlord and G.B. but this post will focus more on the Lightlord aspect.

Lets be Honest,  Lightlords can swarm this deck in the first game or they can slowly outrun the deck if your Icarus or Oppression Don;t hinder them.

I find myself being able to read Lightlord Players as they use Charge and Mill for that Garoth ( Means they have a Lumina in Hand ....or not) Pitch garoth for Solar recharge and afterwards summon Lumina and dump a N.Guardna For Garoth , End phase mill.

Its all working like Clockwork now.

Not only do you have to contend with the fact that Your opponent has mantained his/her hand enough to possibly have an Honest inside but the graveyard would be filled with Either good or bad mills.

I find myself actually checking the graveyard alot, Counting the Honests, Beckoning Lights, Monster reincarnation ,Necros and JDs.

< Enters Game 2>


After siding in Light mirror And Soul release and Other stuff like D.D. Crow, I will say that its hard to say who will win Game 2.

Reason being that the Opponent will usually side in Royal Decree X_x And that card wrecks Icarus so i'll find myself synching for Armour Master .......alot , that doesnt Stop Judgement and/or Celestia.

But , if i draw a good hand for a start, Light Mirror Wrecks Lightlord, I can;t stress this enough. You have to try it out for yourself too.

However, i also noticed People siding in Raiou to combat the Black Whirlwind and Synchro-ing of the BF Deck. Not too sure on what to write on that, reason is because i never faced a Raiou in Game 2 against Lightlords before! X_X

But i ll just say, Icarus??

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part 2 : BF Armour Master

Lets now talk about Armour master .





Lets list the couple of ways He can be brought out without Vayu in grave:

1) Gale + Lvl4 Monster/BF lvl 4 Monster ( Easiest to do!)
2) Sirroco+ Blizzard and/or Mistral ( Abit uncommon)
3) Vayu ( Brought from Shura) + 2 lvl 3 Monsters and/or Qualat ( Errr, hard?)


Even in an Oppression Build,i find myself Synching with Method 1 often in my duels.


Or he will use Shadow Imprisioning Mirror, which kind of affects the Vayus and Kycoo but Doesn't negate the swarm from hand ability of Black Feather.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 3: Kycoo and The Duel between him and Soul release!



Overall, I'd say that Kycoo can be main decked in BF , but like most of the time he will be more of a Player Preference card. Because Some Players will have trouble with him in the main ( draw him too late when you needed a BF for whirlwind to combat that Stardust.) Or find him really good ( Hint:  Graveyard Control )



Lately ,People have been debating whether Soul release or Kycoo is better.




Not the Ocg Version For reasons of possible p0*n .

For one side , Soul release doesnt take up a Summon and as a spell, excels at getting rid of cards in the grave, seriosuly 5 is alot of monsters.

Just remember that there are Cards that can be chained to Soul release ( E.g. Necro Guardna.)



For the other side, Kycoo is an Allure target and His controlling the grave effect is too good . Also , Even though he can't remove mass amounts of cards in the grave like soul release, he still has field Presence.

However, Kycoo is a Monster card, and is therefore susceptble to cards like Bottomless or Torrential and thats what makes players of Oppression BF Abit concerned.

Reason being

a ) He takes up a Summon

b) There is no guarantee that he will be staying on the field for long ( So is the feeling that all monsters will end up in the grave one way or another. )

But hes a Versatile card nonetheless, at least his ATK is reasonable high ( 1800 ATK )

And he has proven to be a Game breaker.

So this debate on who is better is actually up to you, the player, i believe that each player has his own perception and thoughts on the game. And its important to ask questions and give your thoughts on a subject.

Reason being that Your Opinion Matters.

In my opinion, Oppression BF does stand a chance in Asia, but i also somehow feel that this Asia Tourney will depend more on Luck than Skill ( Note: Lightlords needs Skill and Luck, But its abit more on the luck side+ Power cards like Charge and Judgement really speak alot for the deck!)

Whatever it is, i'll just be there for the sake of chronicling another Asia Tourney as part of my Life, as well as film of course.

Next time, i ll just post on my testing for Junk and Debris in an Asia Format........Which would  Probably be sometime tomorrow night? O.O

Well, its that Week right before Asia, just remember not to let the Pressure kill you first XD

Reason why i am Writing all this down is because i still have these Test duels fresh in my head and would like to share it before i go on to study.

Also because if this was in a vlog, it would take around 12 minutes of talking ,hence this long Blog post.

Ok , i'm starting to sound like im beating around the bush so:

- Showing of Mat and Updates on Videos will be in the next Post.

Until then, See ya! =D

Whose this dude......Again!
