Dimension of Chaos: The Great Escape

October 26th, 2015

Any time one card lets you search your Deck and add another to your hand, it’s worth paying attention to. The most successful strategies in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG are usually the most consistent, and the ones that offer the most choice. Those two factors let you adapt to your opponent’s moves so you can outplay them; searching your deck for the right card at the right time makes it way easier to win.

Today we introduce a new World Premiere card making its global debut in Dimension of Chaos, a quirky new search Trap that’s not tied to any one theme. Painful Escape brings more precision to some of the biggest Decks going, and lends search power to a few old-school decks to help you get cards that were almost impossible to search otherwise.

Clash of Rebellions: Storming Mirror Force

July 24th, 2015

Most Duelists know that Mirror Force is an amazing card. When an opponent’s monster attacks, Mirror Force will destroy all of your opponent’s Attack Position monsters. The possibility that you may have Mirror Force face-down will usually make your opponent think twice before attacking with a field full of monsters.

Recently, Duelists have been employing various methods to cushion or negate the impact of Mirror Force’s activation. Some monsters can’t be destroyed by Mirror Force, and other monsters have effects that activate when they’re destroyed by Mirror Force. By attacking while those monsters are face-up on the field, Duelists are able to circumvent the potential for a devastating setback by Mirror Force.

But Clash of Rebellions introduces a brand new Trap Card that can have the same devastating impact of Mirror Force, without the weaknesses that have been exploited by recently popularized Decks. Clash of Rebellions presents Storming Mirror Force! Read more…

Crossed Souls: Portmanteaulogoy

May 18th, 2015

Sometimes, seeing a certain word in a card name can tell you what it does without even needing to look at the text box. “Pot of” Spell Cards, for example, let someone draw 2 cards, be it you, your opponent, or your Deck in the case of Pot of Generosity, with Pot of Duality being the exception. Jar of Avarice is a card that takes words you’re already familiar with and combines them in a new way, and the result does almost exactly what you’d expect it to! It’s actually better than expected.
