Invasion: Vengeance Does Not Condone Splitting the Universe In Four

October 13th, 2016

One of the easiest ways to win Duels is to keep your opponent’s key monsters off the field.  Up until now, the best way to do that was Vanity’s Emptiness – a Continuous Trap Card that keeps both Duelists from Special Summoning as long as it’s face-up.  Playing a bunch of big monsters yourself and then keeping your opponent from Summoning their own has been a winning strategy for nearly a decade now, dating back to when Royal Oppression was still legal.

But once Invasion: Vengeance arrives, a new card will give Emptiness a run for its money.  Dimensional Barrier technically isn’t as powerful since it’s a Normal Trap and lasts for only one turn no matter what, but in an era where all you need is one clean turn to win, Dimensional Barrier can steal games and demolish the biggest Decks going.

You expect ME to DRAW my Traps? How quaint!

January 20th, 2016

Two years ago, the Traptrix monsters debuted in Judgment of the Light. They’re a group of Plant and Insect-type monsters that work with your “Hole” Normal Trap Cards, namely the long running series of “Trap Hole” cards, to prevent Summons and eliminate monsters! While most themes have a powerful monster to lead their strategy, Traptrix got Traptrix Trap Hole Nightmare, a powerful Trap Card that could both negate effects and destroy monsters! It became a big player on the competitive scene overnight, but that didn’t stop Duelists from asking for an ace monster for the Traptrix Deck! Well, the time is now here: Say hello to Traptrix Rafflesia! Read more…

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.
