Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here and today we will be going over the second card in my new mini-series, “Tier 1 Card Reviews”. You are going to quickly find that my views vary greatly compared to most of the other competitive players out there (Or at least, they did). Frankly, I don’t believe our meta is as diverse and healthy as everyone claims it to be; just because your local has different decks every week doesn’t mean they are all competitive. For those of you who followed my progress through Seattle’s Kaijudo Championship, then you know I did Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here and today we will be going over a new mini series I wanted to start, “Tier 1 Card Reviews”. You are going to quickly find that my views vary greatly compared to most of the other competitive players out there. Frankly, I don’t believe our meta is as diverse and healthy as everyone claims it to be; just because your local has different decks every week doesn’t mean they are all competitive. I haven’t really tested at all for Seattle yet, and I’m still quite confident in my ability to perform well. I Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here and this week I’ll be hitting an interesting topic: Limited play in Kaijudo. For those of you who play other games, you understand how fun the limited format can be; I’m here to tell you that I’ve found the limited play in Kaijudo to be unrivaled. What exactly is limited? Well there are two most common forms, drafting and sealed. Drafting is where you get a certain number of booster packs, open one, choose a card from it, and then pass the remaining cards to the player next to you; you then repeat Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMC this weekend! We have finally reached the final week and now we know who will be going to Seattle from the KMCs! This was a crazy week and I’m already super late on covering it! Lots of real life stuff caused me to have some delays; I’m behind on pretty much everything right now haha. Let’s jump straight into the reviews! The KMC happened in Oakmont, PA; let’s see what took this KMC by storm! Total Players: 63 Top 8: 1 Carl Miccioto – Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMC this weekend! There was only one KMC this time around, and it was in the wonderful city of Las Vegas! So far I’ve had to change the direction I wanted to go with this article twice; I really hope I don’t step on any toes with my ‘filler’ content! The KMC happened in Las Vegas, NV; what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—unless you win a free trip to Seattle! Total Players: 26 Top 8: 1. Stephen Liberto – Dominus Control aka Keeper of Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! We’re nearing the end of our KMC season; only four of them are left. Speaking of which, there’s only 1 KMC next week; how am I going to fill an entire article off that?! The KMCs this time around had decent turn outs; not quite the massive ~70 person tournaments, and it’s unlikely we’ll ever do as bad as 6 again! There were a lot of requests for unique deck names, but sorry about that everyone; we can’t be confusing players like Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! I was supposed to be present at another event, but things had come up and my KMC season is over! Luckily, I got my invite for Seattle back in Ohio! Clash of the Duel Masters has jumped the meta, and it seems we’re finally starting to see a dominant trend. I really thought I was going to be on time, but it seems not all KMC winners want to part with their deck lists; I can’t blame them! I’d like to thank Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! I was present at another event; I seem to always go to the largest KMCs! Luckily this time around I did much better than I did last time. This was the first set of KMCs are Clash of the Duel Masters, and not so surprisingly many of the more common decks from last format still managed to keep their pedestal. I decided to take my sweet time getting this article in; between internet drama, poor coverage, and secretive deck lists this was Read more


If you haven’t had the chance to experience a Kaijudo Master Challenge (KMC), I’m going to give you a chance to vicariously experience one today! If you didn’t know, the first place winners of a KMC will receive an invitation to the Kaijudo Championship and a PAID flight out to Seattle for it, and second place receives just the invite. The Kaijudo Championship is going to be an exclusive tournament that only the best of the best can attend; this special two day event first has the players who qualified work with R&D to leave a permanent mark on the Read more


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! I was actually present at an event this time, and I did pretty good at the biggest KMC to date! Each week the attendance record gets broken; let’s hope that trend keeps up! For starters the meta this weekend was quite interesting. A lot of the most common decks were still present, but we got to see some innovation pay off! This will be the last set of tournaments in this meta; Clash of the Duel Masters comes out this week and Read more
