Maximum Crisis: “Spring” Into Action!

April 17th, 2017

Monster effects that can be used from the hand have played some pretty big roles in recent years. Cards like Effect Veiler and Maxx “C” have defined the modern era in a lot of ways, with some being so powerful that they had to be added to the Forbidden & Limited List. These cards have such a big impact because they operate in a unique way that’s nigh un-counterable and requires no set-up at all. Interacting with your opponent when you are forced to go second is one of the many reasons why these monsters are so good, and the fact that they are still useful after you’ve established your field makes them great when you get to go first as well. These monsters being concealed in your hand means your opponent can’t destroy them let alone predict you drew them, and this hidden information forces your opponent to always fear the possibility of you having an answer.

We have seen a lot of this type of monster fall in and out of popularity depending on the environment.

Crow and Retaliating “C” being so well positioned against the whole field that they make their way into the Main Deck rather than just being a Side Deck tool. With the release of Maximum Crisis comes a new monster to join these ranks; one so powerful that it’ll definitely makes some waves: Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring. Read more…

March 31st, 2017

One of the great things about sets like Duelist Saga is that they’re an opportunity to finally bring cards from the anime and manga series to life that Duelists thought may never see the light of day. Oftentimes these cards are part of pairs where one half of the pair makes the leap but the other doesn’t make the cut for a long time. In Duelist Saga, some of these pairs are finally completed, including a couple you might not even realize existed! Read more…

Duelist Saga: Blazar of Glory

March 28th, 2017

Computer screens are a treasure trove of easter eggs, in-jokes, and character information in anime. A screen in the background could have anything from 80’s song lyrics to the Declaration of Independence written on it, or even the birthday or blood type of an important character. In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, a computer monitor once helpfully suggested that Yusei’s ultimate monster was called Cosmic Blazar Dragon… but as you may know, there was no such thing. Yusei’s ultimate monster was Shooting Quasar Dragon, a monster that has existed in real life for more than 5 years. So what was Cosmic Blazar Dragon? Read more…
