Responses @Sol: Yeah, I heard about the new series. I'm not going to have an opinion on it other than I'll probably like it since I'm a bland YGO fanboy who'll eat anything Konami throws at me. We'll see though. 5D's had a pretty good run...

@RazorD9: Agreed? lol

@TemplarKnight: You're not gonna like Exceeds Summons then. From what I understand, it takes 2+ Monsters on the field of the same level and stacks them on top of each other. They're not sent to the Graveyard. Let's hope it won't appear in 09. LMAO

Somehow I missed the last page. Caught up now.

Celestia's good, but I typically only run one in my deck. I actually prefer Gragonith. Not sure why it doesn't get much use (like, at ALL) in other Lightsworn decks that I've seen.

I'm running a Lightsworn Deck on Yugioh Online, but I'm still getting creamed by the top duelists that use Synchro Decks with Dark Armed Dragon, etc. It's amazing how much Synchro's evolved the game.

Oh, btw, did you hear that they've announced that there IS going to be a new Yugioh series after 5D's? (they would have been crazy not to, as they make a ton of money off of the animes, and not really off the episodes themselves, but from the cards and video games that they essentially promote). The details for it are being released on Feb.11th I believe, during the encore showing of the new Yugioh movie in Japan.

Tis darkest before the dawn, though more like lightest before the dusk.

Haha, I'm the same way, at least right now. I've been playing Duel Monsters since it first came out in English (Yep, I have 1st Edition cards of Starter Deck Kaiba, that was only around for maybe a month at most back during the Legend of Blue Eyes days)

I only recently became obsessed with Yugioh though XD. Not sure why. I blame 5D's for being so awesome. I'm going to miss it, but it would have been wrong to try and extend the series. The story would have just gone downhill. I'm really curious if the next series is going to take place after 5D's, or before. And if Riding Duels will continue to be featured XD.

It's good to see that the quality has been continuously increasing through the last few pages. Seriously, great job with the Lightsworn monsters. Although if it was me, I'd have tributed Wulf rather than Jain for more milling at end phase, and destroyed the reverse card rather than the token. But, anime/fanfic dueling =/= real life dueling.

On the new series, it looks pretty bland, although rumor has it some concepts from the original will be brought back, thankfully. I see it being more akin to GX rather than 5Ds, meant to appeal to a younger audience, though I'm hoping it will progress to its "season 3" state faster than GX did.

I'm just hoping no new mechanic comes along to the card game because of the series, Synchros broke the game so much when they came out and even after all these years they still aren't in a very good state, balance-wise.

Yeah, I just read about that. It's just a filler idea copypasted from other CCGs because Konami can't think up anything good any more. What I especially hate is new mechanics killing off the previous ones, like how Rituals and Fusions are basically obsolete now (there is like 1 Ritual and 1 Fusion competitive deck, and it's not even T1, but 80% of the competitive decks are based on, or at least consistently running, Synchros). I'm not sure if this will happen with the Excess monsters, since they seem so darn unplayable and stiff right now compared to Synchros, whereas the advantages with Synchros were quite obvious (Fusion monsters that did not require Fusion cards and had versatile materials), but I guess only time - and support - will tell. Well, at the very least they won't - shouldn't - be splashable in just about every deck.

Ooh, this looks bad.

Reply Sol, December 15th, 2010, 3:10 am

Yeah, I just heard about Yugioh Zexal myself (more details about it at least)

As TemplarKnight said, it definitely seems more GX like, unfortunately. I liked the older, adult characters that 5D's had, it allowed for more mature storylines, etc.

Still, I'll probably watch it, but I doubt it'll be anywhere near as good as 5D's.

Oh, and Templar, Fusions and Rituals have pretty much ALWAYS been obsolete, even before Synchro's XD. Rituals became obsolete when Yugioh gained archetypes (other than Exodia and Beatdown that is), with the exception of maybe Demise but that's still only one Ritual, and Fusions sort of made a comeback with the Elemental Hero's, but most decks that use Fusions nowadays are Contact Fusion, meaning you don't need Polymerization. So, yeah. Synchro's didn't kill Fusions and Rituals, they were already long dead before that XD.

Reply TemplarKnight, December 15th, 2010, 3:50 am

Alright, Rituals were never very good due to bad mechanic design (massive loss of hand advantage for underwhelming effects), except for Demise builds and recently Herald builds, but Fusions used to be quite popular and they cropped up often. Saying that they sort of made a comeback in the GX era doesn't make any sense since Fusions weren't really good before the GX era, at least not in the competitive scene, though some Dragon builds were playable IIRC. But Fusions were played quite a lot, and when Synchros were introduced everyone forgot about them, and Contact Fusion never really made it as a mechanic except in Gladiator Beasts, in which it was really limited. Nowadays the only real Fusions you see is the occasional A0 build, and MSF builds. When a mechanic is introduced and until it expands reasonably it might be weak and underplayed, but you can't say it's obsolete, it's only obsolete when it is actually playable but something comes up and makes it disappear, like Synchros did with Fusions.

Reply Siliva, December 15th, 2010, 6:10 am

Hey...Fusions aren't completely obsolete! I use them for Synchro fodder all the time in my Stardust Assault Mode Deck! Instant Fusion noodles For. The. Win.

I'll just be movin' right along then. Sorry to interrupt.
