Don’t Forget About These Cards! Mermails from ABYR

March 27th, 2013

For months, Mermail Duelists relied on Genex Undine to send monsters like Atlantean Dragoons and Atlantean Marksman to the Graveyard, setting up big plays and raking in free cards.  But YCS Miami and Cosmo Blazer changed everything, and now the top WATER Deck, as seen in its YCS Austin victory, is focused entirely on Atlanteans and Mermails, without Genex Undine or Genex Controller.

New cards like Mermail Abyssteus made the Mermail strategy faster and more consistent, giving it better search power, more ways to discard WATER monsters for their effects, and doubling their number of Level 7’s.  The result was a surge of interest in certain cards from Abyss Rising that tied the strategy together.

The New Way to Wind-Up

March 27th, 2013

Wind-Up Decks have competed at the top tables at almost every event for the last year or so. From winning National Championships and the occasional Yu-Gi-Oh!

Don’t Forget About This Card: That Wacky Alchemy!

March 21st, 2013

In any given Duel you’re able to destroy your opponent’s monsters with Trap Cards. For common scenarios, everyone has an answer. They Summoned a monster? Bottomless Trap Hole and Torrential Tribute will do the trick. They’re attacking you? Mirror Force and Dimensional Prison get the job done. And of course, you’ve got monster destruction ready for when they play a Spell Card, right?

Wait, you don’t? Well that’s probably because you forgot all about That Wacky Alchemy! from Abyss Rising! If a face-up Spell Card is sent from your opponent’s Spell & Trap Card Zone to the Graveyard, That Wacky Alchemy! can destroy any face-up monster.

It’s no secret why Abyss Dweller is such a popular card. There are tons of effects out there that activate in the Graveyard, and Abyss Dweller can stop them from activating twice. But what if you want that power, but don’t want to use 2 Level 4 monsters to get it? Then you want Dododo Warrior!
