May 24th, 2015

Welcome to Day 2 of the 150th YCS! This morning’s first Match features Eric Hodge Santos, a Yang Zing player utilizing some of the new support out of Crossed Souls.

Tech Update: Beating Crush Card Virus

May 24th, 2015

After its errata, Crush Card Virus has returned to the scene and is seeing a lot of play in any strategy that can manage to pay its cost. It can completely devastate a strategy that uses a lot of high ATK Monsters such as Nekroz or Qliphorts, but some Duelists have made adjustments in order to try to take advantage of the new text on Crush Card Virus, specifically the optional part of destroying Monsters from their Deck.
