Current Events » Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG/TCG/Master Duel General Turn 21: The Crooked Cook Exodia Mirror
Because how many duels these days - outside of GOAT, I mean - are going this long without some sort of bullshit going on? This is the thread for discussing all sorts of Yu-Gi-Oh related stuff, from the physical card games to the online simulator, from the manga to the anime, and even the nonsense that happens on YouTube sometimes.

Go forth, summon Kuriboh (but not Linkuriboh, it's now banned), and play Multiply!

CE is actually closed to any new members now, and seems they're banning anything lewd or political. I do think deck building philosophy in ygo is politics so we may get banned soon

We can just move over to actual Master Duel board tbh.

But no lewdposting? Man, with some of these YGO 'monsters' it is just impossible.

The rules apply there too, but the people at the MD board are like really aggressive and weird. I swear a guy there got mad cuz I used "unofficial terms"

Whoa there buddy, pointing out Konami's anti-Purrely agenda is getting too political /s

Meanwhile they might actually be a bit too strong, if anything. I realized I have 0 answer to them. Maaybe I'll try shoving in Daruma Cannons

Wait, wait, wait.

Purrely is legal in this event?

The same event where Kaijus are banned?

Oh no.

In terms of a card every deck can use, if you're not going first with a bunch of interruptions, hoping Daruma Cannon survives til the next turn really is one of the very few ways to counter Purrely during this event.

Daruma cannon, and herald of the abyss are possible outs. Theres also an anti xyz spell or trap(forget the name) that targets the material that can deal with it also. Evenly matched can hurt them also.

Aside from that you can search all the above cards with TTT.

It's the spell, Xyz Encore, I think.

Also for the first time since forever I heard Junk Speeder isn't banned. The world is ending.

But the sad thing is I'll still be trying Red-Eyes FTK, but I just know they will ban Allure of Darkness.

Allure is legal. I checked for my Kozmo deck in case one of my accounts had no other good options.

Question about the game mechanics: If my opponent skips straight to the battle phase, I should get a prompt asking me if I want to use any quick effects before the main phase ends right?
I'm excited for the new Lightsworn cards in the new pack coming out at the end of the month. I don't expect it to make Lightsworns tiered or anything, but any boost in its relevancy/competitiveness is a great thing in my eyes lol. Just need to find a way to make it as pure as I can as possible.

And also look at this little cutie!

My Chaos Dragon IRL deck is essentially just a Lightsworn deck. I shouldn't spend money on cards but I guess I'll have to see how much they end up being

Yeah I was thinking about putting in some chaos dragon stuff. Levianeers, baby chaos dragons, etc.

I also kinda doubt that the new Lightsworn cards will be expensive. But I'll be sure to order them fast on the small chance they do blow up because of a YCS win or something lol. That's what I did with the new unchained support and was glad to grab Yamas while they were cheap(er).

That's true. One win and they shoot up in price for a while. I also don't even have 3 Felis or whatever the cat girl name. I'll have to see. My eyes are more on the Terminal World pack with the Ritual Beasts

A normal Ze Amin can get into GE Photon Lord within exactly 5 summon, Nibiru proof.

Or Hope Harbinger Dragon.

...is it worth it? I'm not sure. Probably not, because I just lost a chance to get a field spell for a couple of draws.

Yes, also a huge tip is that by toggling the prompts from auto to ON gives you the option to react to more things. Like being able to activate quick play spells or effects during the draw phase.

This isnt that important in lower ladder but higher can be game winning or losing higher up. As it allows you to play around powerful and semi common cards like triple tactics talent or Droll & lock bird or even react to certain effects you normally couldnt like accesscodes talkers atk boost.

Though only use it when its advantageous to you. Otherwise its better kept to auto if only to save time. And frustration dealing with non stop prompts every action.

Thanks, I thought it was strange in one match how it went straight to battle phase, but i mustve been clicking on the field parts while waiting and skipped the prompt lol
The only non prio shift I can think of is the beginning of the main phase, which is considered an open game state.

https://yugipedia.com/wiki/Game_state

If it's open, the priority is on the turn player. The moment they declare anything that closes the game state, you can respond, and if you respond, you pass the prio to the other player

So technically you can respond like twice. When they declare the Main Phase end, you can respond, and when they declare battle phase and pass their activation, you can respond again at the beginning of the battle phase.

I had some pretty sick duels overall with my Rank 3 xyz Zoodiac, going like 13-2 or something. Lost once to Chimera going 2nd cuz they had too much shit going on. Not sure what was the other one I lost to

Fusion seems the most popular and probably the most powerful, but ppl are sleeping on Xyz cuz it's hard to spam monsters without certain tools. As usual Terrortop is my goat, but man Zoodiacs are so weak. Their appeal of not activating is lessening by the moment.

I decided to go with blind 2nd "Zeus Turbo" Zoodiac, with tons of handtraps and boardbreakers. So far I've only done 2 duels with it, but I won them both.

If Arc-V is of any indication, that might be true.

Thinking of mixing PUNK with Mikanko because Fu-Ri is psychic and Lv 3....but I'm not sure how.

The deck is pretty bloated already, but mixing two Japanese arts is something I can't resist.

Xyz has the strongest deck in Purrely actually. Unfortunately its one of the harder decks to learn, the Pure version while relatively cheap isnt strong enough to easily stream roll for average players and the the better variants are very expansive and require a engine most arent willing to buy even if its possibly one of the best decks.

never mind if they even like the playstyle.

You can definitely do this, but probably not for this event. It'd also be a rank 3 turbo, and you would most likely be doing an Acid Golem transverser lock, but there are probably better sub-engines for it.

Yeah I ran Daruma Cannon just in case, and it's won me games in general. I haven't faced a Purrely yet though

Yeah, pretty much. It's a setup similar to Branded's Gimmick Lock, where you give your opponent a monster that locks them out of special summoning. However, it only applies while Acid Golem is face-up on the field, so it's not a lingering effect for the whole turn like with Gimmick Puppet Nightmare and therefore it's a bit easier to get rid of. Acid Golem's 3000 ATK is also more of a threat if left unchecked, but considering that one of the prominent decks that uses the Acid Golem Lock is Mikanko (once Gen/Ken come out) the higher ATK also benefits the Mikanko player too.
https://i.imgur.com/PmF1p9q.jpg
It was meta in TCG for some time. Now that I look at it, we don't have the key pieces yet, which are Gen the Diamond Tiger and Ken the Warrior Dragon. They summon the other to the other side of the board, which then you can do a Mikanko combo to summon up to 3 cards on the field, one of them having to be a lvl 3. Then you make an Acid Golem and Transverser the other to the other side.

It also technically works with Terrortop, but the other lvl 3s aren't quite as efficient as Terrortop or Mikankos with a card on the other side.

Gen and Ken were amongst the leaks so we may get them eventually

Meanwhile, I lost to another Chimera... The funniest thing about this fucking deck is that I won 2 in a row by simply going first and Ashing their first search. Seems if they don't get Chimera Fusion into the hand or aren't able to resolve Patchwork, they're kinda fucked

Ok so seems Goblin Biker PUNK will basically be an even better Acid Golem locker lol

why is master duel different from ban lists for tcg
They have different card pool and philosophy. The first MD banlist was basically OCG's banlist but 1-3 cards different. MD diverged from both OCG and TCG since then

Im guessing because the release dates for cards differs from the tcg, so they try to balance it with the foresight of the tcg meta.

why is master duel different from ban lists for tcg
Multiple reasons:
-Master Duel banlist is closer to OCG banlist
-Master Duel doesnt have all the cards from TCG or OCG yet, so formats different
-Its a Best-of-1 format, so the fact that you dont have access to a sideboard means cheap tactics are more likely to be hit in Master Duel
Future_Trunks posted...
why is master duel different from ban lists for tcg

There are quite a few reasons:

1) It started off more based on the OCG side than the TCG side, but has now diverged so much from both that it's basically it's own format.
2) They have the hindsight of seeing how the IRL formats went because Master Duel is months behind in card releases, so they sometimes pre-hit cards they know will be problematic. Example: they pre-banned Toadally Awesome before Sprights could abuse the shit out of it.
3) Master Duel is a best-of-1 format with no side-decking, so some cards and decks may be less or more of an issue than in the IRL best-of-3 format that has side-decking. Example: Red Reboot is insane in best-of-3 when you know you can just side it in whenever you run into a Labrynth player, but if you need to main-deck it and risk it being a dead card against most other matchups, suddenly it's not so good of an option.
4) They really want to avoid hitting UR cards (and to an extent SR cards) as much as possible and giving players precious dust as a refund, so they'll often hit low-rarity cards from the same archetype instead, which might be different that the IRL hits a deck got. Example: Tearlaments still have Kitkallos (SR) in Master Duel because they banned Merrli (N) instead.
5) Sometimes Master Duel is used to experiment with unhits that they're considering for the IRL formats. Example: Master Duel was the first format to unban all of the Dragon Rulers, and they've been totally fine, so now the IRL formats are bringing them back too.

EDIT: Looks like some of my reasons were already covered while I was typing this post.

Yo that's crazy. I was testing my R-ACEist deck and I had Baronne on the board, CPU had Malefic World on the board. Turn 3, CPU activates Malefic World and essentially gives up his normal draw to get a Malefic draw. My Baronne negates, but Malefic World already negated his regular draw, and because it was negated and destroyed, it can no longer allow the CPU to find a Malefic. So it simply skipped its draw

I kept drawing my Armoured Xyz S/T in the event, wtf.

Edit: Suship has a hard time making use of Armoured Xyz. Dugares can only go so far and there is this problem above.

Like one time I legit drew both Armoured Xyz S/T off Dugares effect. Wth.

Event has been hit and miss for me. XYZ was going to be hardest so I started with it using Exosisters. Got it day one but win rate was pretty bad, Chimera destroyed me. Fusion next day tried having fun with Cyber Dragons but that was a mistake, switched to Branded and it was same old but actually winning. Synchro was Ghoti and I could relax and enjoy finishing up all the titles.

I tried to pull Chimera. First 10 pack and my only UR was nightmare magician. Second was 0 URs so I wasn't very optimistic. But next 3 got me all the Rescue Ace I needed and all but 4 URs in chimera. Even got a glossy Mikanko spiritwalk. Now I can actually have fun playing a new deck in an event without caring about rank.

That said today I have drawn all 3 copies of Chimera fusion in my opener with a combination of 2 handtraps or Bephomet 4 times today.

I just want to take this opportunity to say fuck Kashtira . Or more specifically, fuck Kashtira Fenrir and Kashtira Unicorn in particular for how generically splashable they are. I just played five straight duels where my opponent opened either Fenrir or Unicorn and summoned it for free before their combo for extra protection. I was playing Zoodiacs, on the Xyz side of the event, so all of my opponents were on the Fusion or Synchro side and they were obviously not playing Kashtira decks. And yet, they were all splashing Fenrir and Unicorn in their decks because those two cards are just so absolutely busted individually. Kashtira was a mistake, and both Fenrir and Unicorn deserve to be banned.
https://i.imgur.com/PmF1p9q.jpg
I think Chimera is a bit too strong for this event. They kinda banned most of their counters, like all the good Synchro/Xyz decks got hit, and they go first and it's sorta just over. They're too resistant to every hand trap if they just draw well, and they just auto-play

Not once per turn, quick-play fusion with extra effect in GY is a total BS lol.

Then there is Mirror Swordknight and Coatl catching shit off guard with GY effect.

I was a dumbass yesterday. Totally forgot about the sneak peak and went to my locals right as it was finishing up. Wouldn't be so bad if the shop wasn't over an hour away...

At least I picked up some cards for my Horus Stun deck.

Welp, they finally hit Snake-Eye... a little . Nowhere near enough to keep it from being the best deck for another month though. Aside from that and kicking Superheavy Samurai when it's already dead, this banlist is a big bunch of nothing
https://i.imgur.com/PmF1p9q.jpg
You posted the meme review for us. Thanks for that. I immediately looked for Samuolo

But yes I saw the list, and honestly, it's pretty good. Ash and Wanted semi hurts the consistency and in some aspects, the recursion. They saw how hard the Ash limit actually hits Snake Eyes in the OCG probably.

Also SHS is still pretty good imo. I dunno if we ever need to feel bad for them ngl
