Put Your Hands Together for Pot of Dichotomy!

July 3rd, 2014

After a breakout showing at YCS Philadelphia, Pot of Dichotomy has finally caught on amongst tournament-going Duelists! The spiritual successor to the now-Forbidden Pot of Avarice, Dichotomy’s made a big impact as a standard pick in the Hand/Artifact/Traptrix Deck, and for good reason… Read more…

Prime Candidate

June 17th, 2014

One of the coolest cards from Primal Origin is one of the biggest Xyz Monsters of all time! Clocking in at a spine-crushing 4000 ATK, Number 62: Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon has more attack points than any other generic 2-Material Rank 8: while Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon and Number 22: Zombiestein both have 4500 Attack Points, Neo Galaxy-Eyes needs three Xyz Materials instead of two, and you can only use DARK monsters for Zombiestein.

So why’s Prime Photon Dragon so cool? It’s a great card because you can play it in two totally different ways. First, it can be a generic Rank 8 that shines in certain strategies regardless of theme. With 4000 ATK and easy Summoning requirements, Prime Photon Dragon can beat almost anything in battle and then become a giant wall to protect your Life Points. Nothing in tournaments today is big enough to take this thing down in battle.

Noble Knight Eachtar

May 22nd, 2014

When we talked about the new Noble Knight Brothers World Premiere during previews, we discussed how it solves some of the fundamental challenges facing Noble Knights.  One of my favorite points was how it makes Ignoble Knight of Black Laundsallyn so much more useful, giving you an easy way to Summon it from your hand.  We focused largely on Black Laundsallyn’s ability: you can Special Summon it without Tribute thanks to Noble Knight Brothers, then Tribute Black Laundsallyn for its effect, searching out a “Noble Arms” card.

Since the release of Primal Origin, you might have seen another new Noble Knight that also has some great interactions with Ignoble Knight of Black Laundsallyn – and any of your Knights that can become Level 5! Read more…
