The Premium Collection celebrates the 10 year history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, with cards of every kind! From Fusion Monsters to Xyz Monsters and everything in between there’s something in there for everybody. One of the cards you can pick up is the Synchro Monster we’re going to look at today, which can be quite useful in the right Deck.
Infernity Decks are one of the most dangerous Decks to play against. An Infernity Duelist can go from controlling no cards on the field and having no cards in their hand to winning the Duel off of a single draw. Infernity Decks were very widely used before Infernity Launcher became Limited, and gradually dwindled in popularity ever since.
Because Infernity Launcher is still Limited on the March 2011 Forbidden & Limited List, lots of Duelists are still overlooking Infernities as a potential contender in upcoming tournaments. However, there are some subtle changes in the new Forbidden & Limited List that make them even better than they were in the past 6 months.
This weekend it’s the showdown in Crash Town between Yusei and his old friend Kalin Kessler. Kalin was last seen as a Dark Signer, but with Rex Goodwin’s defeat at the hands of Yusei, Jack, and Crow, Kalin and the rest of the Dark Signers were freed of the netherworld’s influence.
Infernities were one of the Decks most affected by the new Forbidden and Limited List. This past Summer, they wielded one of the most feared One-Turn K.O. strategies of all time. It was a Deck focused on Special Summoning Infernity Archfiend to search out Infernity Launcher, Synchro Summoning with the Archfiend, and then using Launcher to bring it back. Archfiend would then get another Launcher, and the cycle continued until the Infernity Duelist had enough monsters to attack and win, usually in just 1 turn.
But now Infernity Launcher is Limited, and that OTK is impossible. Some Duelists thought that would be the end of the Infernity strategy, but several Infernity Decks made Top 16 at YCS Toronto. Make no mistake: Infernities are still alive and winning. But they’ve had to adapt, and while their success once relied on super-fast wins, they’re now all about the long game. With some of the best Trap Cards ever printed and Archfiend to search them out, Infernities are now a deadly control Deck.
One of them is a slow-paced sleeper hit that came out of nowhere to win the 75th in Edison, the other is, or at least was, the very definition of speed capable of destroying an opponent on a Duelist’s first or second turn.
