Why do you play Yu-Gi-Oh and why do you enter tournaments?  For entertainment?  To have fun with friends?  For the feeling of winning or to win prizes and a trophy?  Would you use every advantage you can get so long as it’s not labeled ‘cheating’ ?  That was the discussion I originally posted on my Facebook page and when it was shared on ARG’s Facebook page a heated debate ensued. The original question asked whether or not you would tell your opponent that he or she was accidentally exposing their cards or would you use this information to your advantage? Read more

In more recent events, it seems as if the Hieratic/ Dragon Ruler deck has fallen out of favor by many of the top players in this game.  Seemingly overshadowed by the Mythic Dragon Ruler variant, or left behind for other decks completely, could this be a mistake?  With the recent ban list, Hieratic Rulers were one of the least affected decks with the loss of a single copy of Hieratic Seal of Convocation.  Now with YCS Las Vegas completed, a deck that has brought me to my 3rd top (my others being the 75th and 100th YCS) and a deck Read more

Howdy everyone. I have been getting a lot of questions from people interested in my Bujin deck that I played at YCS Las Vegas. It is definitely not a regular Bujin deck that you may have seen in the past but I am here to break it down for you guys on my card choices and why I chose to run this deck.  You guys are probably reading this article saying to yourselves “Who the heck is this guy with this funny name?”.  My name is Hooman Farahbakhsh and I have played Yugioh competitively many years ago.  I stopped playing Read more

We have John Brad piloting his Mermail deck against Roland Morton armed with his Geargia-Karakuri deck.   Game 1 Morton wins the die roll and elects to go first.

Morton draws for his turn and flips Trap Stun before flipping the Amor face-up to net him a Geargiaaccelerator. He then proceeds to special the Accelerator, uses Armor to set itself facedown, summons Karakuri Read more

Hey all, so for those of you completely unfamiliar with who I am, my name is Evan Russo. I host and produce the YouTube channel “Epic Duel Time” and am an avid YuGiOh player and judge. I began playing fairly competitively and at regular tournaments in early 2010, having only previously played casually and infrequently since the game was first released. Since my entrance into competitive play, I have developed a great interest in judging and tournament policies, as I found that a surprising amount of players are completely unaware of when to call over a judge, and even how Read more


Hey everyone! My name is Dylan Stewart and I’ve been waiting to write an article for a long time.
