Thanks to the incredible combos and huge turns sparked by Gateway of the Six, Legendary Six Samurai – Kageki, Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan and Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En, it was no surprise that Six Samurai won the event.  Soon after, we saw Gateway of the Six become a Limited card on the new Limited and Forbidden Cards list. While many Duelists saw this change as a problem for their Six Samurai Decks, it may in fact be just what’s needed to help Duelists create an even more powerful Samurai build.
