February 20th, 2015

Nekroz may have stolen the spotlight at YCS Tacoma, but they aren’t the only Ritual Monsters out there that can compete! The 2014-2015 Dueling season has been something of a renaissance for Ritual Monsters, featuring at least 1 new Ritual Monster in each booster starting with Duelist Alliance and ramping up to 7 in The Secret Forces.

You never want to lose track of these cards because they have a habit of popping up when you least expect them and suddenly appearing all over the place!

Don’t Overlook This Card! – Armades, Keeper of Boundaries

September 30th, 2013

Judgment of the Light had a bunch of new Synchro Monsters, but until we saw what the new Advanced Format would look like, it was tough to gauge which Synchros would be the most successful.  With YCS Toronto and weeks of Regional Qualifiers now in the books, we know which Synchros are being played; which ones are still underappreciated; and which decks can run them.  The stage is set but the players are still finding their places, so today we want to remind you – don’t overlook Armades, Keeper of Boundaries!
