One of my favorite archetypes since the release of [ccProd]Noble Knight Medraut[/ccProd], has been Noble Knights. I love the lore behind King Arthur and the card arts and effects are just so bloody cool! Today I will be talking to you about 2 of 5 new cards which have been announced, and what they bring to the table. First up is Noble Knight Borz Noble Knight Borz Light/Warrior/4/1700/900 This card is treated as a Normal Monster while face-up on the field. While equipped with a “Noble Arms” Equip Spell Card, this card becomes an Effect Monster with these effects. ● Read more

The first event of our new diverse format has come and gone, and while Dragon-type decks seem to be the top contender, as usual in these times I decided to take something a bit different than everyone else. Ever since Harpies first came out, I was in love with them. It was the first deck I ever actively made that wasn’t just a pile of cards, and it forever holds a special place in my heart. What I first loved about the deck was that there are no cards you can instantly side against the deck like you can Spellbooks Read more

This is more of a public service announcement than a Yugioh Article (you can expect that one next week, right now I’m training endlessly for YCS Toronto!) Just a month away is the first ever ARG Open in Texas, and if you haven’t heard of it already you can click the link HERE. It’s one of the most exciting things to come about in Yu-Gi-Oh in a long time, and it’s all for you guys, the duelist of the world.  Not only is that exciting, but it is also great to have a refreshing and super interesting Forbidden/Limited list. What Read more

This is my first article back after the 2013 WCQ, and first off I’d like to say congrats to our 6 person team, and a special congrats to ARG’s own Patrick Hoban on winning the entire thing. I’d also like to give a special shoutout to 2 of my closest and best friends Robert Boyajian and Steve Silverman who will also be attending the World Championship. This is the best team we have sent to Worlds in a long time, and I feel like this is the time where we will have our FIRST World Champion from the United States. Read more

Honestly, I don’t think I personally know 1 person who hated Plant based decks. I’m sure they exist, but Tengu Plants, Quickdraw Plants (my personal favorite deck of all time) and other Plant variants I think are some of the most beloved decks of Yu-Gi-Oh’s past. Just recently I posted a facebook status about Lonefire Blossom, and easily got tons of comments and hundreds of likes, just because those people loved Plants. Oddly, Plants are my favorite Type of monster. A lot of peoples are Dragons, Spellcasters, and Warriors, but not me. Ever since [ccProd]Lonefire Blossom[/ccProd] came out in Phantom Darkness, Read more

Now that Dragons and Prophecy have officially started dominating our Metagame, its hard to have fun sometimes when 2 decks are clearly more powerful then most others. Lately I keep switching between decks, from using Psoil and my new deck I’ve fallen in love with… Constellars. Constellars have an excellent Dragon matchup, as [ccProd]Constellar Pleiades[/ccProd] is an instant answer to Draccosack and Big Eye, which forces your opponent to have to be able to Summon 4 Dragons in a turn to make 2 Xyz, or try to Summon a Tidal/Blaster to attack over Pleiades. However, this is where you just play Read more

So with the release of the Elemental Dragons they not only are great for making their own deck, but also increase the power of other decks that already exist. One of these decks was my very popular and fun Psoil deck, which used the Psychic engine and [ccProd]Grandsoil the Elemental Lord[/ccProd]. Now we have the Elemental Dragon of Earth, Redox, to go along with Grandsoil, and to be frank, they go hand in hand. Not only does Redox add an extra monster to your Graveyard for its [ccProd]Monster Reborn[/ccProd]-like ability, but also manipulates your grave by being able to Banish Read more

With so much hype going into Dragon Rulers and Prophecy, the previous best deck has dropped a lot in popularity. A couple months ago, Abyssmegalo was a $100 dollar card, and now is hoovering around $60. Now then, many of you probably still have your Mermail cards, and right now, Elemental Dragons and Prophecy are EXPENSIVE. I doubt many of you readers today have been able to obtain the entire Dragon deck (but if you have, kudos) and if you have Prophecy, well, I’d be willing to bet you never were a fan of Mermails to begin with. Question of Read more

This article is going to be a tad different from normal. Not everyone follows the OCG, but in order to become a better player, learning everything you can, the history of decks, even before they are used here in the TCG, can very much help oneself with deck building and comprehension. Today, we will be talking about how Prophecy and Dragon’s started off in the OCG, and what this all means going into Nationals. Dragon’s have long been some of the most powerful cards to exist in Yu-Gi-Oh. From Chaos Emperor Dragon, to [ccProd]Dark Armed Dragon[/ccProd], and [ccProd]Judgment Dragon[/ccProd], and Read more

Now that most of the World Premier cards have been shown (All except 2 as I write this) I can finally start to sort out the good and bad, and start preparing for Nationals. Today I will be going through some of the World Premier cards, and giving my opinion on each of them, so lets get started. First up I’m going to start with the Noble Knights. Over the past year, Noble Knights have slowly been gaining support, and by all means none of the support has been terrible. This time around they get 1 Effect Monster and 1 Read more
