Lonefire Blossom Shines Bright!

March 11th, 2014

Premium Gold is coming soon, and while there a lot of new cards in the set, there are also some great existing cards that have never been Gold Rares before that are finally getting their due! Lonefire Blossom has been an extremely powerful and incredibly well-loved card ever since it was released in Phantom Darkness. While it was originally used to Summon monsters like Gigaplant and Tytannial, Princess of Camellias, it later received heavy play Summoning Dandylion, Spore, and Glow-Up Bulb from the Deck.  Lonefire Blossom had fallen out of favour lately, but now that Plant Decks have experienced a revival thanks to the Sylvan monsters from Legacy of the Valiant (and soon, Primal Origin!), Lonefire Blossom is poised for a huge comeback!

The Fury of the Forest!

January 10th, 2014

So far we’ve shown you the pint-sized Plant-Types that power the Sylvan strategy, and the heavy-hitters that make up their front rank.  Today we’ll go one step further and show you two big boss monsters you can use in your Sylvan Deck: a nearly unbeatable Synchro, and a card-grabbing, effect-triggering behemoth of an Xyz that can exile your opponent’s best cards to the bottom of their Deck and spin their worst cards to the top of their Deck to clog their draws!


Let’s start with the near-invincible force of nature: Leo, the Keeper of the Sacred Tree. Read more…

Sylvans Part 2 – The Part Where You Win

January 7th, 2014

Last time around, we introduced you to Mount Sylvania and the low-Level Sylvan monsters that form the backbone of the new Sylvan strategy.  We talked about how Sylvan Marshalleaf’s monster-destroying power, and Sylvan Komushroomo’s spell-shattering ability can guide your opponent’s plays, and we touched on the Special Summoning strengths of Sylvan Peaskeeper.  We also discussed the supporting cast of Lonefire Blossom, Spore, and Dandylion.

Today we’re taking it up a notch!  While some of the smallest Sylvans have some of the best effects, there are also mid-sized Sylvans you’ll want to consider, and heavy-hitters that are must-plays.  Here are the Level 4, 6, and 8 Sylvans that can help you brute-force your way to a win…

Better To Be Smart Than Lucky – Introducing the Sylvans!

January 7th, 2014

Legacy of the Valiant’s new Sylvan strategy thrives off excavating other Sylvan monsters from your Deck and triggering their powerful abilities. Because the order of the cards in your Deck is unknown, it may seem like the Sylvan strategy is all about getting as lucky as possible with the cards that you excavate.  But don’t let appearances fool you: this strategy’s not about luck.  The Sylvan deck’s actually a very precise toolbox, searching out all sorts of effects right when you need them.  On one hand, it acts a lot like the Plant-driven Synchro-centric decks of old; it uses cards like Lonefire Blossom, Dandylion, and Spore to make flexible plays both offensively and defensively.  But with the new Sylvan monsters, it also threatens your opponent with destruction and aggression, punishing them for making plays you want to discourage.

How?  It all starts with their amazing Field Spell, Mount Sylvania! Read more…
