Round 2 John Brad (Mermails ) vs. Roland Morton ( Geargia) Welcome to Round 2 everyone! 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. He sets a Geargiaarmor and 4 backrows before passing his turn. Brad mirrors this play, but sets only 3 and passes. 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

Hello everyone! I am glad to write once again for Alter Reality Games! For those of you who do not know me, my name is Connor Bazil. I’ve written here once for the YuGiOh Holiday Contest back in 2011. Currently, I play a variety of card games such as YuGiOh, Kaijudo and even a little MTG. Over the past few months, Kaijudo has instantly become one of my favorite games (probably because I enjoyed Duel Masters so much :D). I was delighted to hear about the recent Organized Play announcement and cannot wait to hear more news about it! In Read more

The title “Snake in the Grass” is coming from the old concept of having a deck a deck that is underestimated, but still holds the power it needs to have to compete on a similar level as the current “meta” decks. It is different from the concept of “black sheep” decks, because these decks are well known, but underestimated. It is important to keep in mind I define meta as the most popular decks. This article, as you could tell from the title, is heroes. Now when I mention heroes people usually automatically assume I am going to talk about 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. To tell you a little about myself I am a second year History Student at the University of Guelph in Guelph Ontario Canada I’ve played the Yu-Gi-Oh for a few years. Now I’m not a national champion nor have I topped numerous events but I am a KDE judge and feel that I have some good input when it comes to the game. Over this past weekend at YCS Seattle-Tacoma we witnessed the rise of Dino Rabbit once again! To some Read more

A Brief History of Time Hello Duelists, my name is Tanner Trachsel and I am 19 years old from London, Ontario, Canada (though my home store is Phoenix Games in Kitchener, Ontario). I started playing the great game of Yu-Gi-Oh all the way back when Metal Raiders was a new booster pack (that’s 2002 for those who don’t know). Being a 12 year old kid without much understanding of the game and going up against such decks as Goat Control and the Yata Lock, I got discouraged and promptly “quit”. In June 2010 I was on a school trip for Read more

And now, for something completely different. We, the unwavering public of the Yu-gi-oh community, have withstood many laughable antics from the lovable Konami Digital Entertainment. They provide us with cards, whether we want them or not, and we throw money, because we really want them. So, the most recent set has arrived by USPS in this frigid season, and I feel it hasn’t received quite the hype from the competitive meta that it may or may not deserve. Given, Hidden Arsenal 5 fought with announcements such as Tour Bus from the Underworld and, God forbid… Interplanetarypurplythorny Dragon* for about a Read more

I am going to talk about a subject that has been long awaited, and long feared by many in the Yugioh community; the return of  Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning. With the new ban list created and put into action, many people were surprised by this addition to the Limited section. Long ago, this card was created and became regarded as one of the most powerful cards in the history of Yugioh. Almost at once, BLS was added to the Forbidden category and was thought to never come back. No one really knows why Konami has brought Read more
