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 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! 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 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


Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! This second week was a little bit less diverse than the first, but it was still impressive none the less! I’ll be going to my KMC this up coming Saturday in Poughkeepsie, NY so hopefully I’ll see some of you there! I also have a new picture—no longer shall you suffer from my zoomed in face! There were only 3 events this weekend, and sadly one almost fell entirely off of the radar. The results might not come as too much of Read more


  Hey there Kaijudo Duelists, Aiden Thorne here, and I’m bringing you the results of the KMCs this weekend! First though, I must apologize for once again showing you a zoomed in picture of my! I took a new one… we just didn’t have the chord to connect it to my computer… It will change eventually, I promise! My predictions were pretty accurate, but then again it wasn’t too hard to guess that the popular decks were well represented! One of the decks that was well represented in KY went on to being represented in TX the next day; I’m Read more


As many Cardfight players already know, the release of Booster Set 5: Awakening ot Twin Blades was last weekend. The set introduces the game to crossrides and boosts the already dominant Royal Paladin and Kagero, along with other decks such as Shadow Paladin, Dimensional Police, and Oracle Think Tank. The set also marks the debut of Neo Nectar and Murakumo. Most people familiar with the game already witnessed the release of this set in Japan and noticed how the metagame shifted due to the introduction of “crossrides” and Majesty Lord Blaster. But how exactly did the metagame shift? We can Read more
