YCS Mexico City QQ: Which Decks Do You Think Gained the Most from the New Forbidden & Limited List?

September 18th, 2016

QQ stands for Quick Questions! With the new Forbidden & Limited List hitting some Decks harder than others, certain Decks gained more power than others as a result of its implementation. I surveyed the Duelists in attendance this weekend to see which Decks they think gained the most power as a result of the new List. Check out their responses!

“Blue-Eyes.” – Brandon Ossiel Aguilar Gonzalez

“Blue-Eyes and Metalfoes.” – Carlos Albirto Ballestinos

“Blue-Eyes and Shiranui.” – Jose Carlos Sanchez

“Blue-Eyes.” – Cesar Omar Gutierrez Martinez

“Blue-Eyes, Burning Abyss, and Metalfoes.” – Diego Alberto Barreru Adina

“Burning Abyss and Blue-Eyes.” – Luis Antonio Villalobos Angeles

“Blue-Eyes and D/D/D.” – Erick Alejandro Ramos Montero

“Pendulums and Blue-Eyes.” – Francisco Guzman

“Blue-Eyes, Phantom Knights, and Monarchs.” – Manuel Alejandro Hurtarte

“Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Phantom Knights Burning Abyss.” – Jorge Bernal

“Kaiju.” – Jose Manuel Lasa

“Blue-Eyes.” – Diego Alberto Reza

“Pendulum variants.” – Bryan Omar DeLeon Espinosa

“Burning Abyss.” – Diliplal Antonio Daryani

“Blue-Eyes and Metalfoes.” – Abraham Ponce Blas

“Cyber Angel.” – Luis Reynaldo Beltran Chavez

“Burning Abyss and Mermails.” – Hiram Montecillo

Duelists seem to believe that Blue-Eyes Decks are the main beneficiary of the new Forbidden & Limited List, as the Deck was virtually untouched by that list; but several other Decks, including Mermails, Metalfoes, Cyber Angels, Kaijus, Shiranuis, and D/D/D Decks were also untouched or enhanced by the new Forbidden List, making them more viable than ever before. Although “Blue-Eyes” was the most popular answer among Duelists for which Deck benefitted the most from the new Forbidden & Limited List, the variety of answers makes it clear that there is no common consensus. The new Advanced Format is wide open, and tons of different Decks look like they will be able to rise through the ranks. Follow the coverage to see which Decks make it to the top!
