The Psi-Blocker Solution

December 2nd, 2010

Psi-Blocker is a great card in a lot of different situations. You can read about the basics of using it, here.

Building Your Own Red Nova Dragon/Jack Atlas Deck

November 18th, 2010

With the release of Starstrike Blast, a lot of your favorite cards from the Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s animated series have become available for you to use. One of the best and most powerful of these cards is Jack Atlas’s Red Nova Dragon. In an earlier article, we explained just how potent and powerful the Dragon can be; now it’s your chance to build a deck that lets you use it to its biggest potential!

First of all, if you’re going to be using Red Nova Dragon, the most important step in securing your victory is Synchro Summoning a Red Dragon Archfiend.

Power Giant is an easy-to-Summon Level 6 monster with 2200 ATK. You can send a weaker monster from your hand to your Graveyard, to Special Summon Power Giant straight to the field.

Tune In to Tuning

November 11th, 2010

Decks built around Yusei’s Quickdraw Synchron took fourth place at YCS San Jose, and second place at YCS Philadelphia.  We already talked about the power boost they get from Formula Synchron, but that’s not all that’s in store for Quickdraw Duelists in Starstrike Blast!  They also get an incredible new Spell Card: 1 that can only be compared to Duel-defining Spells like Charge of the Light Brigade.  Behold the power of Tuning!
