Main-Sequence Stars

December 10th, 2014

We left off yesterday having concocted a clear and precise strategy for winning with Satellarknights, courtesy of Stellarknight Triverr, Satellarknight Alsahm, and the well known Satellarknight Altair + Satellarknight Deneb combo.

Winning Booster Draft Strategies: Level 3 Rush

October 9th, 2014

Billy Brake broke pretty much every Dueling convention in the book on his way to his third YCS win in Dallas last weekend. Not only did he go with a 60-card Advanced Format Deck, the maximum size allowed as opposed to the 40-card minimum most competitors stick to, he also drafted a very specific Battle Pack 3: Monster League strategy that most players overlook or lack the confidence to commit to: the Level 3 monster rush Deck.
