Interested in seeing the Infernoids in action?

June 9th, 2015

Then you’ll want to check out this match from YCS Columbus! In it, the Infernoid strategy is pitted against Lightsworn, a strategy that Infernoids borrow several key cards from! This match lets you see a lot of different Infernoid cards in action and provides an example of one type of “conversion” Side Deck – a Side Deck that allows you to radically modify your own strategy on the fly. In this case, many Trap Cards are added to a Deck that has few or no Trap Cards during the first Duel, which virtually guarantees that no Spell/Trap destroying cards will be sided in against you.

What’s In a Name?

March 11th, 2015

Here’s something to think about: When is a card “for” your Deck?

For many Duelists, the answer is “When it shares the same theme name as the rest of the cards in my Deck.” That certainly is the most common answer, and looking for theme names does make it much easier to identify cards that definitely will work with your strategy of choice.
