Two weekends ago we saw the culmination of the dueling season with the ARG Circuit Series Championship and the World Championship. After the dust had settled we saw a familiar face and close friend of mine, Chris LeBlanc, reign supreme in Philadelphia to join the elite few to have won three championships. Having moved in to attend college, he brings an unprecedented 11th ring to the Leverett household. His consistency across multiple formats is truly inspiring and a testament to how great this game really is. Congratulations Chris! The Nekroz deck he piloted to victory was one that I came Read more

  Greetings duelists! This week I’m going to discuss the importance of Information in Yugioh and why it’s become increasingly powerful these past few years. Generally speaking, if you want to top an event or win the whole thing, your deck needs to have some sort of edge that makes it an outlier in the scatterplot of decks. This “edge” is usually attained through the use of tech cards, which are cards that aren’t popular but will create an advantage against certain match-ups (Sometimes all match-ups, but not usually). Finding the right tech card is not simple because the best Read more

Hey! What’s Up? Hello! This week I saw it very fitting to discuss some of the brand new cards that were just released in the new Clash of Rebellions (CORE) set. It has been quite a fast summer with plenty of events to participate in, but there simply has not been any significant set release. As much as I would have liked to say Dragons of Legend 2 (DRLG2) was a good set, it really wasn’t. One might think that a sequel to the original Dragons of Legend Set would contains cards with equal or greater power than that of Read more

Hey everybody! A good friend of mine has been out of the game for a while, but decided to come back for the 25k next weekend in Philadelphia. Since he hasn’t played in a while, he asked me to make him a guide on playing Nekroz to help him jump back into the game. I figured a lot of the information in the guide could help out other players as well, so I decided to post it as my article this week. It’s geared toward playing Nekroz in the ARG format (so without Trishula), but most of it still applies to Read more
