There are few feelings worse than Summoning forth the perfect aquatic army, only to get to have the seas turn against you as you’re blasted by Torrential Tribute. If that sounds like a problem you monsters regularly face, take a look at Torrential Reborn!
My favorite kinds of cards are ones that I look at, and then think of a ton of different Decks I want to try them out in. For example, Starliege Paladynamo from the Zexal Collection Tin. When I finally got my hands on a couple of them, I spent about 3 weeks building nothing but Decks that could make use of it. Noble Knights? Check! Ninjas? Check! HEROes with Photon Thrasher? Check! Straight up Galaxy/Photon Deck? Absolutely. Pinpoint Guard from Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy is exactly the kind of card I can’t stop trying out in every Deck I make. Read more…
One of the cornerstones of Dueling is to make the most out of every monster you Summon. Oftentimes, this means making sure that monster’s Summon is successful and that its effect activates and resolves successfully.
