First for no banlist today.
Kneel before the Synchro chads
El chupacabras when?
I'm so fucking bored.
OH MY GOD 6 POSTS EARLY DELETE THE THREAD REPORT THE THREAD HOW DARE HE JANNY SAVE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>325658143But it was 25 post late.
>>325657592How much of a difference make the XYZ monsters in a witchcrafter deck? Can I climb without them? I don't feel like digging through so many boxes just for extra deck monsters
Decoy Dragon, best card in the game or just the second best?
>>325658715"trust the experts"
>muh Xyz>muh synchros>muh fusionsimagine not playing a deck that can do all three of themgo ahead, /dlg/take the swirl slime pill
>>325658950what the fuck is that...
>>325658950>two heiratic rank 8s>only level 8 is verreI guarantee you that person never made two of that rank 8 in the same game.
Thank you Party Hat Chad!
Is Armades the best level 5 generic synchro available? Just thinking of what to put in my Scrap ED. So far I have>2 Scrap Dragons>1 Scrap twin>1 Atomic Scrap>1 Scrap Archfiend>1 Armades>1 Diamond Dire WolfI feel like I need more slots, I would definitely like a second copy of Scrap Twin and maybe a Malevolent Sin but there's not enough room.
Witchcrafters will be the new Tier 1 after the banlist drops, quote me on this.
>desperadofag has black salvo, super team and necrovalleyThis kind of retards shouldnt be allowed in KoG.
>>325659228>scrap archfiend>atomic scrap>armadeshow about you build an actual proper ED that can take on the meta?
>>325657592>c wordWhich word is that?
>>325659305>quote me on this.Now what?
>>325659056>>325659063global rank 9https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIz5OPLVQc4
>>325659130no problem brother
Do I need to oink if I want to play Fire Kings?
>>325658715>>325658950But they said XYZ, I don't see any light machines?
>>325659362You're no fun. Anyways Chimera locks you into scrap synchros so if his only option is a goblin he has to use it to go into Archfiend so no Samurai Destroyer as an alt level 7. Considering how niche atomic is I'm tempted to swap him for a second scrap twin.
>>325659043Pill me. What do I need?
>>325659646Yes, it's a structure deck deck
>>325659043I'm waiting for the superior all summoning method deck
>>325659718This game isn't meant to be fun you drooling retard. Hit the red trash can and build noble knights. You'll thank me when you're topping tournaments
>>325659437Carly Carmine, duh.
>>325659228Musachi if you want to recycle breaker or recycler but you're right, our level 5 synchro pool is pretty bad. I think Armades is overall the best generic one.Replace atomic scrap and dire wolf
>>325660068>Replace atomic scrap and dire wolfFor a second twin and Malevolent sin?
>South American country>Sartorius>Opening cup of pot of greedEvery time
>>325660292Is the only zone rich enough to play premium decks.
>>325660292Everytime I see despacito or thundra its a chink
>>325659228I play 2 Scrap Dragon, 2 Scrap Twin, 1 Scrap Archfiend, 1 Armades and filler spot which is some random Rank 4 Xyz or Naturia Barkion if I'm running Powerful Rebirth. You're never getting Atomic out and the rare instance you could you'd prefer to go into Twin instead and use Searcher as Twin's effect cost
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany day now for that Skull Servant support...
>>325660913>You're never getting Atomic outActually it's pretty simple to get him out with a good hand but the problem is that once he's out you're left with no things to explode (aside from the field spell and himself) due to him being a 3 mat synchro.
>>325660481Any One Else?
>>325660949I feel you, bonebro.
>>325657592>rage quit for a week, because I got sacked 5 times in a row by head judging.>play the ladder again.>get immediately sacked by head judging again.I fucking hate that card so goddamn much.

>>325661229calm down, robert
There is a thread on /a/ about when you stopped watching Yugioh.I'm more interested in when people STARTED watching Yugioh. Every once in a while you get somebody who spergs out because you don't say Jounouchi and I'm like what the fuck child where are your parents.
>>325661229for everytime they sack you the card sacks them in another game.
>>325661147Oh and by good hand I mean an ideal hand with the field spell, a normal summonable scrap monster or search spell, Orthros or the search spell and scrapstorm and I just rechecked but you can end with exactly one other scrap monster apart from Atomic to serve as cost for Atomic.
>>325661173Nah>>325661207Hopefully soon m8
>>325661529started when the dub started airing, stopped as soon as the marik arc was over
>>325661529When DM aired on tv.My cut dub/dub terms cut off point is gx.Everything after that should only be watched in nipponese
>>325661693Absolute Chad normalfag
>>325661189? Asking for other banned pends? Like maybe you're trying to play an Oddeyes deck but somethings are just good overall instead of only supporting one
>>325661820it's a quote from the same guy that says GTAB
If you're not playing meta, get the fuck out of my thread. What makes you think you have the right to express opinions that have not been carefully researched and tested by the TPC? I will inform them that this general doesn't take their teachings as the gospel.
>>325661529I never watched it religiously. Only caught some dub episodes here and there, mostly of DM. I caught a few episodes of GX and maybe 5Ds, but that's it.Most of my early time being into YGO back then was through the games.
>>325662236>1 Invoked for ShiranuiBased Invoked ShiranuiGOD. Hope he wins.
>>325662236No one brought some form of ftk Bamboo?
>>325662236Too bad you cant unnerf skills.Everyone would be using 2017 Destiny Draw, but still.
>>325662236>unlimited>koaki barely even usedfinally, can we please get the hits lifted fucking hell
>>325662236So what was winners and top 32
>>325662236I'm surprised not that many people are using 3 gold sarc 3 charge 3 grass thundra. grass was already limted when full power thundra was out and that deck was still insane
>>325662394Didnt it require the first version of Balance?
>>325661941The fuck? I sure hope you aren't trying to credit Get That Ass Banned to anyone that isn't LTG.
>>325662523pools still ongoing
>>325662596>BalanceNo, it used Tea's unnerfed Duel Standby.It's basically a two card combo that lets you draw your whole deck in one turn.
>>325662860I see why Madison is in lesbians with her
>>325662432I wish we could have unnerfed skills. I want to recreate lithium's cross banlist tcg tournament but in duel links
Leeeeeeeeaaaaaaaks please leeeeeeeeeeaks!
>>325662437saw an invoked koa'ki deck with trunade get demolished by amazonessit was sad>>325662873its on twitch, its easy to find
why are blue-eyes fags so retarded?
>>325661529>Started: Duelist Kingdom>Stopped: end of Seal of Orichalcosalso saw some shit like noah and dungeon dice monsters, not sure where those were on the timeline
>>325662236how many people are running 3 trunade 3 kiteroid?
dueling is fun!
>>325663581im sure most of them are maxing trunadeprobably not kiteroid though
>>325661529Started when the dub aired and stopped sometime during the Battle City arc mainly because I just forgot about it or I became interested in something else. I had already lost interest in the tcg and I think I just moved on to other anime.
>>325662236Never go back holy shit why would you want to play in this?
>>325664345its a dead week and sometimes we just wanna experience the best degeneracy duel links has to offer
>>325664520And this is why 6sams arent allowed limit 2 cards.One of the reasons, at least.
>>325664520hit them again just to be sure
>>325664520>draw 4>summon 4 monsters>necrovalley>tthAnd fags want Sams freed.
>>325662236We don't have classic Duel Standby anymore but is Restructer Revolution burn still potent enough unlimited? That deck could solitaire FTK or 2TK way back when the game launched
Yep. I'm thinking negrovalley to 3
>>325638287>>there's a future where yuseifag has access to easy QuasarsThe future is now old man
I summon Deneb and set 3, pass.Your move
remember when /dlg/ was asking for darklord unbans?
>>325665579Shut up green
>>325665579Shut up fag
>>325665626>8400LP turn 4Good thing it has to pay LP to active its effects, huh
>>325665626I never asked for this.
>>325665626Ixchel and Banishment to 3
>>325665801You sure did, /dlg/
>>325663610They look like yusaku and akira.
>>325665454>Hyper librarian>Formula synchronYep. Just like the good ol days
the deck and skill I use should be able to 2in against anything the opponent uses, otherwise it's cheating and the cards he uses should be banned
>>325661626Combo goes like this>Play field spell>search Beast and/or Orthros with scrapyard>summon Beast >summon Orthros>pop Orthros with Orthros>field spell summons Scrap Golem>use Scrapstorm on Beast, dump Scrap Searcher>Beast's recycle effect gets me Orthros back to my hand and Scrap Searcher revives itself>Use Golem's effect to revive Beast 4+1+5 = 10 = Atomic Scrap Dragon>Special summon Orthros again, pop Orthros, fetch Beast with his recycle effect and let Scrap Searcher revive itself again>Use Searcher as cost for Atomic Scrap DragonAlternatively you can do this same combo except with Goblin instead of Beast and you get Scrap Twin+searcher for cost.
>trunade into aleisterreminder that this is legal currently too
>>325666918>just have a fire monster+aleister+trunade in hand broohhh noooo the horrorgit gud.
FUCK YOUDESTINY DRAW IS CHEATING
>>325667346yesskills were a mistake
>kills both invocation with two lancea >still surrenderslmao
still waiting for new dragunity support
>a tourney with Cocytus at 3
Why would anyone want to play in this? Holy fuck this is so degenerate as hell. At the very least we can see Darklords and Six Scrubs should NEVER be freed
Who the fuck actually likes dragunity? Its the most boring vanilla archetype aesthetically (muh dragons) I can think of, AND it plays braindead as fuck to boot.
>>325667704Same but also waiting for Abyssgaios and Scrap Raptor.
Who the fuck actually likes Blue-Eyes? Its the most boring vanilla archetype aesthetically (muh dragons) I can think of, AND it plays braindead as fuck to boot.
>>325667978>>325668080these but unironicallly
>>325667860meta is so boring right now, 1 degenerate tournament is entertaining
>>325667860ok invoked shiranuitard
>>325668080it has a neat backstory though
Who the fuck actually likes Mermails? Its the most boring water archetype aesthetically (muh fishies) I can think of, AND it plays braindead as fuck to boot.
>>325667978Winged beasts with dragons is pretty neat. Any deck which has only 1 or 2 plays is pretty damn gay though.
>>325668296We dont have many decks with over 2 plays.
>>325661529First day the dub dropped on Channel 5/Kids WB. Stopped after 5D's Dark Signer Arc (around GX I had already switched to the original). Picked it up again after hearing how great Zexal II was.
>full power darklords losing to current BE
>>325668408Just because your brain can’t process more than me activate trunade me summon senatus, me win doesn’t mean decks only have two plays
>>325668504It was one of the few decks with a decent match up against them at least.Being able to easly go to 3k Atk and spamming vanillas works pretty well against their broken trap.
>>325668504>Deck plans big beater vanillas that don’t care about sanctified and bears over just about anything they can summon No shit
Fuck itEverything to 1 I don't care anymore
>>325668006>Waterschizo was also a Dragunitard and ScraptrannyIt all makes sense now.
>>325667704Wait for Ghosts from the Past's tcg release
Release them, even with all these cards, Madolche would be Tier 4.Do it Konami, release them now.
>>325668504I kneel Kaibafujos
>>325669002Why would you lie like this!!!!!Literally tier 0 and everyone would hate it if we got EVERY single card madolche has
>>325669002Would unironically destroy this game if this happened, kys faggot.Wait another year before this game becomes more retarded with the power creep.
>>325669002Madolche’s would be literally broken with just Tiramisu
>>325669251Even with power creep madolche would still be tiered in this shitty game.The deck is still fucking good in tcg/ocg dude.
Why are each of the floors in this DD tower so fucking expensive?
>>325665454Is it just me or inline player is broken? Webm opens in new tab.
>>325669140>>325669251>>325669380wrongrelease them and I'll prove it
>>325669002>let's give them a card that send cards back to the deck and it's not targeting
I kind of want to pig for Darklords now, too bad they arent leaving the banlist.
>>325669513>not even quick effectkek
>>325669505No??? Fuck you I play madolche like my life depends on it and I love the deck to death but it would literally be so fucking cancer in this format and would be broken if we got EVERY single card it has.Promenade, GlassSoufle and Tiara along with Salon would make the worst fucking game ever.This has got to be bait
crystronbros...the boblek chads are laughing at us...
b-but /dlg/ told me bobleks were shit... why are they winning to full power crystrons...
>>325669947>>325670063Imagine if they actually win.
>>325669380No. It would rely too much on Double Summon. Tiaramisu is great removal, but she's not a quick effect, and she requires a Madolche in the grave to even activate.
just banish their gy bro
>>325668408by definition any r4nk deck has more than 2 even if it uses some more often.
This tourney proves that crystrons shiranui and koakis are all healthy and should not be banned.
>>325670245Those aren’t hard conditions to activate at all, especially if you go second and have trunade access which they will. Two non targeting spinning would be broken beyond belief in Duel links.
>>325670846If that was enough to leave the banlist, CA wouldnt be still there.
>>325670846it's not like they are just facing the current decks. they are facing decks that are way more bullshit than them
Where's the banlist Konamiiiiiiiiiiiiii?
>>325670901You can literally play something similar in Malevolent Sin turbo. No one would do that right now because the deck fucking sucks in its current state. You're forgetting the fact we don't have Anjelly. You need two card combos to put two lv4s on the field, let alone having a Madolche in the grave after Tiaramisu hits the field. Let alone also having Trunade in hand. It's all disrupted by Bounzer or backrow too.
>>325671746Youre forgetting madolche spells and traps count too, as well as the overlay material you're just gonna get rid ofhttps://files.catbox.moe/xtxawx.webm
rank 9s when?
>discussing Madolche in DLRelease him
>>325667291>clearly had handtraps and destiny drew something>/dlg/ still crying about veil to 3
>>325672632Should be a Naturia or Sylvan.
Main box madolche confirmed?!
who's going to win this?
>>325672856I bet 50 gems on Yugi.
>>325668504>unlimited tourney>bring deck that has zero limits just to dab on them
>>325668504bros.... i don't wanna be a bricklord loser anymore...
>>325671952>could not make Tiarmisu turn 2>could not set up any quick effects first turn>making Tiaramisu consistently means your opponent has to leave your field alone>in order to even pop off you likely need Trunade>two decks in the meta make Strike Bounzer consistentlyIf Madolches were any good right now as a rank 4 engine you would see them currently being used at fringe levels. But no one plays it because the the archetype sucks at doing anything in its current form without Anjelly or Petingcessoeur.
>>325672856If that’s a set sanctified and WC doesn’t have CC then Darklords
I love Karma Cut!
>>325673396That was a demonstration on how tiara works not anything else bro.
Where is it?
>>325673638I want it semi'd
i guess wcs will stay in the banlist
>>325673850You dont, you're just too stupid to understand degenerate decks fear karma cut while you can be dealt with pretty much any other disruption
>>325673850https://www.duellinksmeta.com/tournaments/kc-cup/february-2021/report/it's not a big deal according to the kc cup results
>>325674214I have Scraps, I'm sure I'll enjoy getting popped far more than banished.>>325674410Damn.
>>325674214every deck fears karma cut, you're just too stupid to do deckbuilding without a free out of jail card
What did we do to deserve being stuck with makoschizo, firefisterchizo and scrapschizo?
>>325674542>waaa I’m gay and need a spankingYou
>>325673660The thing is, it would be the average hands a Madolche deck would currently have anyway. I'm trying to make the poster that posted >>325669380 realize how idiotic the post was. Mew and Hoot are lv3, and with Anjelly you could at least run level dupe. Without dupe you need Double Summon. Boards Madolche makes currently have no disruption from stopping someone bullshitting your entire field away forcing you to start from scratch if you didn't just lose. Madolches would still be shit with just Tiaramisu because they need more ways to make Tiaramisu when they want.
>>325674868I hate the synchrotranny
Just play Lunalight, they can't karma cut you. lmao
>>325674947ill take that as a concession

>>325675112Yea you're right, that literally is 99% of the hands I've gotten in this game so far.... sorry lol.The only way I can see effectively getting out tiara every turn is marmalmaid with palooza but that seems like total shit to do not to mention slow as hell.Playing madolche this past week has just taught me that you summon hoot/search hoot then cope and wait for the best.heh.....
imagine wanting amazoness off the banlist

>>325679260>>325679293People are trying everything. This is not an established format.In the end, once a unlimited meta settles, it would go back to the same 2-3 decks everytime.
>>325679224you now remember even ritual fucking beasts were using that skill
>>325679047>it loses to more bullshit decks so it's balancedfuck off they got what they deserved

>>325679293No fucking way.I'd take that tourney meta over the current shitdecks running around with the exact lineup of cards and skills.
>>325680352yea but ritual beasts are gay as fuck and were not the reason my skill got nerfed
I would love it if WCs or NKs win this meme tournament just to see /dlg/ have a mind break.
>>325680148It is actually funny how that alone kept Desperado out of the top for so long
What do Sacred Beasts need to be viable?
>>325680532yeah. imagine one of the two "trash petdecks" winning a tournament filled with full power darklords and invoked elementsabers
>>325680532WC at full power could probably keep up with all the darklord insanityNK winning would be the funniest shit, beaten only by Six Samurai
>>325680908I'll take the tomboy.
>>325680908why is yuzus bracelet so plan jesus, rins and ruris blows it out of the water
>>325680434Bro this unrestricted meta would be the same it’s only been one tournament. Once people remembered how to play these old decks and figured out how they work against the newer decks , deck not around when they were at full power and made adjustments for the newly added cards they can use it would be a Six Sam, Invoked, Dark Lord meta
>>325680714Their modern support, same as with any other deck with unreleased cards

Can this be done in response to a karma cut in response to a monster summon?
>>325682983sounds more like dwarves
>>325683170>to a monster summonnow you control a monster
>>325683170no because you control a monster
>>325683170How is your opponent using Karma Cut if you have no monsters on your field?It could if you have the psyframe link monster

>>325683658Because the summon resolved and then your opponent got a chance to active a card. You cant chain cards to a summon useless is part of the effect like Roach.

>>325684125WHY THE FUCK IS BLUE-EYES IN THE TOP 8
wait, where are the Dark Magician DeckSSS?
So they just completely murdered the Mission Research event? It got nerfed the last couple times, but this time it's way worse.
>>325684517you tell her girl!
>>325684858its been well known for a long time hes a beaner
>>325684517And how would you know that?
>>325684915I havent even seen a 1 gem mission yet
>>325684526Because they have almost all their cards in the game, structure decks and several boxes worth of support, a skill that is literally +1 and are one of the best users of discard traps after shiranui. The deck is good now, nobody's denying that.
>>325684915what mission research?
>>325685057not him but im a literal trannoid and not once have i ever said that or anything similar
>>325684858Stop replying to it.
>>325684915It's KC month so every single gem event gives less than usual to accommodate for the extra gems KC gives.How many times must we go through the exact same shit
>the one guy who just /c/ posts
where do I watch this stupid ass battle phase tourney
>>325684526Because they're absurd if they get past the ordeal of bricking. Having the ability to search (and loop if necessary) Alternative, potentially field huge bodies quickly for synchro or Xyzs, and turning a brick into a wincon (Twinburst) is huge
>>325685335now that ISIS labor of love
>>325678815What the fuck I want this meta RIGHT NOWREVERT ALL THE HITS
>>325680187It wasn't foolish, it was discard 1
>>325686258I never want Darklords or Invoked to come back but the rest isn't so bad these days barring maybe (Turn 1) DM
why cant i click my deck to see my current cards thats so fucking retarded
>>325678815>uno weather paintersBased and redpilled
>>325684007>>325684327Alright so the summon resolves then KC can be activated forming the actual chain 0 that kc created. Something like a "hole" type of card or effect (when summon) is what creates a chain in response to a summon? Does this also mean that "when this card is summoned" effects always fire as long as there isn't a hole kind of card activated in response to the summon? Basically, monster effects that fire when the monster is summoned always fire if the summon isn't negated by an effect that negates summons specifically. Thinking of black rose dragon's synchro summon effect.

WIND Invoked, when?
>>325687101>Le green molehuNever
>>325686783'Hole' traps require the summon to be performed and wouldnt prevent on summon effects.But summon Negations like Solemn traps and Roach will prevent those effects as the summon didnt resolve preventing the condition for the effect to happen.

>>325686783>When>always fire if the summon isn't negated by an effect>whenwhy do you think that Gadgets eff do not work whem goblinberg'd?did you forget the whole crystron inzektor stuff?
>>325687165oh so you are just retardedok
>>325686783The only thing that can stop "when summon" effects is negating their summon (or the activation itself obviously).You can solemn a jinzo.Keep in mind some are trash "when...you can..." effects and floodgate will stop those too, but thats because of missing the timing, their own effects need to happen directly after the "when" condition or its not valid anymore.

>>325687828It happens to be said here more than any other threads I frequent. I don't even question it
>tournament's unlimited>blue eyes isnt even abusing multiple semi-limit cards>Still in Grand FinalsSo we can all agree that the deck in its current state is actually an issue that rightfully deserves a semi-limit to be this good among a bunch of other absurd shit
>>325688261that's top 4
>>325687828Are you always so upset when someone calls someone else a fag?

>>325688805All the in-theme cards that made Blue-Eyes relevant during the deck's peak back in Shining Victories/Worlds 2016 format are basically in Duel Links already.The only things really missing are the Chaos rituals, and a few underwhelming modern cards that primarily support Fusion/Ritual memes like Abyss Dragon or pic related.
so now we can all agree that BE needs a nerf right?

old meta bros...the blue eyes chads are laughing at us again...
>>325689654they can probably do with a semi-limit but I doubt Konami's gonna do it after all the shit it took for DM to finally get its lumps
>>325689717Just open herald and lancea and elder every time
Finals is RB vs BEJust free everything in the banlist, it doesnt fucking work.
>>325689654They're gonna hit kino cut instead of any cards directly related to bewds.

>people think this is an actual representative of what the meta would be if we didn't have a banlistRetards, everyone would just flock to the single strongest deck like always, you just have to wait until the meta settles down and we're back to our cancer programming.

This really puts a spotlight to all these retards calling this current meta balanced.Couple of floodgates holding back extremely broken decks while anything that can't use those floodgates is completely useless.Really balanced.

How in the fuck did crystrons not win the hole thing??
I'm just glad the RB player went down swinging, even in an unfavorable matchup. I expected him to get 2-0'd without much fuss but he went down to the wire.Now, release elder and give them their "I win" button...okay, maybe not that but free Elder, seriously.

>>325694334Is because Jinzo has to be summoned to apply his effect.And Solemn can negate the summon.
>>325694368The artificial part of the meta are all the forced Zexal decks that can't even out a Cocytus
>>325694368>carried by darklordsfake. in a real unbanned meta the meta would react to darklords by playing more BE and the extra BE would then reduce darklord numbers and the better decks would clap BE and win.

>>3256943762 sage lmao
>>325694563Blackwings, Crystrons and Shiranui, you know, the best Synchro decks before Konami had to ban everything to shill boblek
BE doing well is just the dorklord counter pick interaction. If anything, it shows how darklords are so unambiguously the best that the only solution is a deck that loses to everything but darklords.

>>325694671Yes winning that matchup was a given. RB had TTH every single match though.Reaching grand finals is still amazing for both decks.
>>325694671Exactly, retard, they banned Cocytus because they knew they would never be able to compete while it was around. This whole meta is a complete fabrication. None of those shitty Xyz decks would be able to compete in the 2020 meta. The only reason why they can is because Konami nuked every single good 2020 deck until normal summon Medraut became a good play.

>>325695861Why is this ancient Egyptian hobo so cute?
>>325695623Not the guy you're responding to but any RB player can tell you that even in such a time, you had to sift through your entire deck for your 1/2 of Herald if you didnt open it or cope if you weren't playing shadow game stall, and it had to come before they started spamming Purgatrio.I wanted that thing gone for a long time because of that while piloting the deck myself
>>325695703if it was that easy to get rid of, why is it forbidden? you think no one above bronze was using cocytus don’t you retard?
>>325695260>>325695190>>325695156>>325695092>>325695061>all this copeYour decks are so shit that Konami had to go out of their way to manually take all of their bad matchups and weaknesses out of the game just so they could be able to compete. That's a fact.At least Blue-Eyes chads showed their worth and won the whole thing, proving that their deck is actually good. Meanwhile where are your Sharks? Where are your Baby Noises? Nowhere, because they fucking suck. The only Xyzbaby representation is a that single boblek in a sea of 2019-2020 decks. Even fucking Amazoness is there, but NOT EVEN ONE BABY NOISE.

>>325696568Nah, its the latest buzzword for "meta I dont like" You sure as hell didn't have the FH, CA and 6S players screaming "artificial meta" when their decks got floored to shill other boxes and cards
We didn't need any proof of that since it was clear from the start that this meta was artificial, but I didn't think it would be this pathetic.
Is "artificial meta" the new meme being born rn? Or have I missed it recently?
>>325696045because gold players cried about it, same reason karma cut is going to 2Decks like Ritual Beasts that had NO out to Cocytus just played a single Herald of the Abyss and it was fine. You just witnessed a tournament where Ritual Beasts made it to the grand finals in a mostly Invoked tournamentWhich is crazy because Cocytus isn't even the fucking threat in an Invoked deck it's the fucking Purgatrio
>>325695861Her boobs are actually kind of big as a chibi
>>325696856it's been here ever since cocytus got banned. invoked niggers are pathetic
>>325696387No one knows but she was basically wandering around the desert.
>>325696856Artificial meta has been a "meme" since they banned every single good deck to shill the Noble Knight SD.

>>325696891yeah buddy, absolutely no one was using cocytus above gold. >it's fucking purgatrio it's not a threat, it's a big beatstick, just use backrow on it :^)
>>325696643>minusing>he struggles to put out Level 6sPoor little Invoktard, I've already swung for game
How does /dlg/ feel about my Horus deck for the big dick tower event and can I make it better somehow? Hours Lv 8 is one of my favorite cards and I had a deck with him as a kid I played with at locals and it pisses me off to this day his retrain sucks, that Lvs are probably the worst mechanic and any support they get goes to Armed Dragon. Wheres the love for my boy
>>325696824>You sure as hell didn't have the FH, CA and 6S players screaming "artificial meta"lol?yeah, instead we get them asking for their cards to be freed every banlist iteration and RELEASE RAFALE before every new box
>>325696856it's just invokedfags getting uppity because they lost their ""investment""
>over 12 months of Cocytus legal and meta>Konami never does anything about it>hot new Xyz decks that can't out Cocytus get released>We are banning Invoked Cocytus because it's really oppressive and bad for the game, ok?hmmm
>>325697271Any Horus deck is based bro
I just had a 20+ turn Blue Eyes mirror match where I decked the guy out.
>>325697056Why would someone do that to Tigrex's computer?
>>325697380>>Konami never does anything about itI forgot being limited to 1 was doing nothing about it.
>>325697380NOOOOOOOOO THE META IS NOT ARTIFICIAL IT'S COMPLETELY ORGANIC AND NATURAL, PURELY BORN OUT OF NEW CARD RELEASES
>over 12 months of Colossus legal and meta>Konami never does anything about it>hot new decks that can't out Colossus get released>We are banning Thunder Dragon Colossus because it's really oppressive and bad for the game, ok?hmmm
don't worry bros a Konami approved synchro box will be announced in a few hours
>caring about the t.g shitbox
>>325697603you are just proving him right, the jan 2020 banlist for the tcg was exactly the same as the pre-zexal banlist for duel linksif tcg still had striker, orcust etc at full power those decks would still be everywhere
>>325697603Yes. We're in an artificial meta now, and when the entire game kneels to Colossus and then it gets banned, we will be in an even more artificial meta because absolutely everything that was ever in this game - Cocytus included - could never hope to stand to full power Thundra might.
I just want to see a new box for cool new cards.
why are invokeks like this?
>>325698075I don't because it will make me sad to see TGs in the game and know that I will have to skip on their box so I can reach Gem cap again.
>>325696181>That's a factYou misconstrued the real fact to suit your narrative:Konami intentionally lowered the powercreep to allow them to sell new decks at a lower powerlevel, thus allowing them to restart the powercreep cycle and gradually build into their next big sellers. Its been like this in older metas where they kick the strongest decks in the balls and what happened with the last slaughterfest of a banlist is a repeat of that on a larger scale. It is intentional manipulation but not something "new" or "artificial". They've always done this on some level, butt now they've had to do it especially hard because those decks were persisting even after preliminary hits.As for this tournament, how is this a surprise? Why not use all of these older decks here in a tournament with all their cards near full power instead the newer decks were definitively released at a lower power level as a part of the typical Konami cycle (and still most everyone's sick and tired of seeing around for all the hollering you see for a banlist these days)? Of course you'll see the old shit more in these circumstances. Its not only still strong but its also a chance to have fun with that absurd level of power in some formI really dont get your cope about artificial meta because its just Konami playing out their usual cycle but with a harsher banlist than previous times.
>/dlg/ surprised backrow deck that can search and summon a monster with one card and can go into a 3k or 4.5k beater for free turn 3 isn’t broken I’m glad you retards finally found out now we can get limits
>>325698121>card design basically makes them tumors that latch on to any deck, turn them into zombies, and then move on if they get hitWhy are you surprised that their fans are basically the same/dlg/ isn't dying anytime soon either
>>325698356>It is intentional manipulation but not something "new" or "artificial".How is manipulation not artificial by definition you coping fucking cuck? You're right that it's not new but that doesn't make it any less artificial
>>325694376did you know the decks wouldn’t side counters like light imprison?>Didn't think about itWhy specifically that build though, 2 sage, 1 spirit?>That's what i have
>>325698376it's just so surprising that no other decks' fans cope like this. no one called post ixchel hit artificial. no one called cyber angel nerf artificial. no one called post six sam hit artificial.
>>325698561Because screaming "artificial meta" now of all times is absolutely absurd when its been happening for the longest fucking timeIt comes off as "investors" seething especially hard after thinking their decks would be safe out of sheer spite that their shit got pushed in to make way for the "new thing" konami wants to sell - like so many others who came before.In short, its fucking retarded and I'd prefer it if you stopped, but you probably wont, rendering most of this pointless anyway.
>>325698356Word.This whole "investment" mentality with people always chasing the meta and then being unable to move on to new things is partly to blame.
Not reading that wall of text, zexalfag, your meta is still artificial
>>325698714>That's what i havea fucking budget deck won this shitfest
I NEED NEWSAAAAA I'M GOING INSANEI'M HEARING VOICESASKING ME FOR THE NEWS
>>325698901the year long dsod meta caused this. invokeks and shirafags got too comfortable with being meta for so long and now can't cope after getting neutered on the banlist
God i hate you people
Amazoness, deck from 2018, performed better than any Xyzcuck deck
>>325698773>no one called post ixchel hit artificial. Because the Dorklord gameplan involves making the other player miserable, and Invokucks hate being force-fed their own medicine so they rejoiced after they got hit >no one called cyber angel nerf artificial.Don't remember shit about then >no one called post six sam hit artificial.If you think Invoked players would complain about consistency hits to a deck that can literally just stop them from making their monsters in the first place, I don't know what to tell you
Every meta is artificial to an extent, but this one is extremely artificial which is why everyone is saying it. Usually format warping decks are kept banned for good reason as they clap every other deck, but this meta has very specific decks banned ONLY because they SPECIFICALLY counter decks like NK. Example:DM was gutted when it was an untiered deck, precisely because the matchup would be so harsh for NK/BE.
>>325698561Obviously you cant call any meta artificial if every single banlist is artificial, what would be the point?Regardless of definition its crystal clear that new decks cant compete against the previous meta. Budget blue-eyes is still better than all the low power trash Konami is shilling.
I straight up can't look at a tier list and see this meta as real. All I see are Konami ads telling me to buy structure decks. The real meta is still Invoked, Shiranui, DM, BEWD, Blackwings, Crystrons, Karakuri, WC and RB to me.
>>325699405DM was gutted because it was absolutely miserable to play against you dumb nigger
>>325698901>tfw you only get decks you like and not meta decks>tfw still kog with ease every month>still have 2-3 copies of every single staple card while having over 65k gemmies in the bankCan't wait for the harpie box
>>325699193they got to top 16, just like bobleksim more suprised bobleks even made the top cut
>>325699672boblek beat full power crystrons 2-0 lmao
>>325699581So is desperado, BE, thundra etc. Only difference is one cosmic beats DM but not those decks.
>Invoked wins everything by spamming backrow>Shiranui wins everything by spamming backrow>BEWD just won and is a backrow deckIt’s almost like backrow IS the problem
>>325699581It was extremely miserable to play against for a full year, but Konami coincidentally decided it needed to be hit onlt the moment when their new shilled deck that auto-loses to it showed up?
>>325699190I just hate specifically you, but like everyone else in this thread.
>>325699475>Obviously you cant call any meta artificial if every single banlist is artificial>"I-if every meta is artificial, none of them are" Cope you absolutely fucking retarded shitter, Chad Cocytus has been gone for ages and he still lives rent free in your brains
>>325699405Artificial is ArtificialManipulation is ManipulationNo matter the extent, no matter the influence, we're all being pushed and pulled by Konami's whims on what they want to sell and what they want to slap limits onMy deck can be tier 1 for a few months and be killed shortly after because it set a really annoying turn 1 board or had immense recoveryOr it could be good for a year or more because Konami's hits couldn't completely kill it and its core was good enough to work around anything short of a nuclear banlistHell, your deck and its cards could be relatively innocuous to the meta but exploiting a skill in a way Konami dislikes, so it gets hit too>>325699771Outside of BE, I could already see Desperado getting nuked and TD at least having to re-design their deck some with a few changes.All according to Konami's whims, of course. Gotta sell those Bounzers and Levianeers for awhile longer still
>>325699581DM was miserable to play against because despite all the complaining you fags did about not drawing your outs you REFUSED to play CC or Lance
>>325699672Boblek is really bad compared to the rest of that meta, but it doesn't get hard walled by Cocytus like the other Xyz decks because it can beat over it with 4k Artorigus so it's not entirely unplayable.
>>325699803Someone post the chart
The meta is more manipulated than it has ever been, if you cant see it you're retarded. Former gutted decks were tier 0 like dorklord, CA, six shits, etc. Now we have like 5 recent banlisted decks and none of them were ever tier 0 (crystron shiranui DM WC etc) all banned at the same time. Coincidence? sure.
>all this bitching about bans and metaHow about you just pull for archetypes that you like the designs ofThat way even if they get hit, you can still play most of it because they almost never just kill literally every card in the deck
>>325700206But Gusto is literally unplayable
>>325699938But I did you clown and yes you flat out autolose to DM if they go first and rod circle Navi something they did VERY often. Unless you draw CC or lance you LOST everytime cope faggot
>>325699803>4 traps>backrow deck>all opponents had access to triple trunade and most were playing TTHCOPE
>>325699925>everything is absolute and black and white and there is no scale at allWhat an absolute moron. Stop posting.
I netdeck because this game is too expensive to playtest cards for shit petdecks
>>325700206I do play decks I just like, meta or otherwiseI'm not some investorcuck who needs to only play one deck to maximize his gem gains and seethes when Konami takes notice of one of them that happens to perform well enough
>>325699803BEWD is hardly a backrow deck though in this case. the winning list literally mained 4 traps. they have to get lucky and open it or draw it with CoCit's nothing compared to peak cancer versions of invoked and shiranui who often ran 8~12 or sometimes more backrow
O MY BANSO MY ARTIFICIALITY O MY METAI bet you fucks are the type that would scream and cry when Mega Rayquaza got banned because it's ARTIFICIAL
>>325700294Now calculate how often you go second AND don't draw your CC even assuming DM gets their combo 100% of the time and you have no other way to play through itThere's a reason that deck wasn't tiered when it got it's second hit
>>325700294sounds like NKs now which are balanced. play a deck that doesnt care about targeting retard, why are you playing a shit deck that cant draw into cosmic or stop targeting? lmao.
This meta seems this forced because we took a huge fucking jump straight to it. Usually you see decks get slowly weakened while Konami releases slightly stronger stuff to surpass them. They rarely nuke everything the way they did. They only nuke shit when it's 1 or 2 decks that completely warp the meta.
>>325700206>don't care for most Ritual Beasts>Winda is super cute What do
>>325700653Add winda to every deck. Every stall deck has 3.
>>325700653play cancer stall burn
>>325700642How many times were Invoked and Shiranui hit before the nuke dropped? I know Crystrons didn't get smashed too hard initially outside of the TC nerf, but I specifically remember Konami taking multiple stabs at the others and not really getting anywhere
>>325700354>while Thundras and Levianeer are still here FUCK NO
I cant help but imagine every single poster defending the meta is an NK player or bought the last 2 boxes
>>325700830crystron was also pretty gradual with the rion hit then the impact hit
>>325700830All of those decks were constantly being hit, but Konami refused to release stronger stuff. In all of the DSOD era part of 2020, we only received 2 new meta decks, WC and Karakuri, both of which got quickly dealt with.
>You now remember the RUNNING OUT OF CARDS memes
>>325700830Dude they do that purposely to pretend >oh oopsie the deck survived too many hits so we needed to make it unplayable :)Remember the shiranui """"""hit""""""" where they just switched around spectralsword and squire or some shit? Its all for show.
>>325701039it was a real problem before zexal. they had to give out shit like anti-raigeki as pack filler
>>325700830it's just funny because they easily could've stopped invoked and shiranui way earlier if they hit both decks properlyI'm still mad about Squire 3/Spectralsword 2 to Squire 2/Spectralsword 3. they're so fucking retarded sometimes
>>325697403I see you are a man of good taste as well
>>325701042>Remember the shiranui """"""hit""""""" where they just switched around spectralsword and squire or some shit? Its all for show.lmao that banlist was a complete jokesome people even topped playing 0 squire with 3 gozuki, 3 skull just so they could play e-con
>>325700301Blue eyes entire strategy revolves around discarding stone with backrow it’s literally a back row reliant deckYou cope faggot
>>325657843TG?Whats that stand for THE GAYS?
>>325700804>Winda of the Six SamuraiSure why not, I'm feeling spicy
>>325701039We got even fucking ORCUST because there were simply no cards to add to the game without Xyz.
>>325701297>Synchrocucks already fighting against each other
>>325701331trickstar, cyberse and altergeist are all in duel links because of dsod
>>325701297Jack you can't just punch everything you don't like!
>>325701039WALKINGHaven't forgotten. Just doesn't make sense to say it anymore.
>>325663281Why do its fingers need to be articulated?
>>325700354Strong handtraps that are also Tuners are fucking mistakes. Being able to use it to disrupt your opponent is one thing, but also being able to summon it next turn to Synchro if you didn't need to use it for disruption the next turn? Bull SHIT. Imagine if Sphere or Crow were Tuners.
>>325700938I guess it was because they didn't want to release even more powercreep that would need to be addressed sooner or later but ALSO didn't want to immediately filter out shit that was already making them bankYou're right about them still doing it withf WC and Kara, and how it looked ridiculous as to how fast they iced them by comparisonI bet if they had more nerve to just kill Invoked, shira and crystron earlier on instead of waiting till Zexal to say "welp, we've got our money's worth. restart the cycle", we'd be singing a different tune
>if it weren't for the banlists it'll be even more years of invoked, Shiranui, dm,ankilolI don't want to return there, if anything the only unfair konami act has done with the banlist is letting blue eyes be so untouched after so long
Im beginning to suspect synchrofags might have aggression problems.
>>325701612That's honestly barely relevant. I can't even remember the last time I normal summoned an Ash to go into noodlesneeder.

>>325701773>the only unfair konami act has done with the banlist is letting blue eyes be so untouched after so longHopefully they'll earn at least one semi-limit with one in this era but they've always coddled DM anime decks.
>>325701947>MoD counter traps>the skill did better than the deck
>>325701828An ash in the hand is worth two on the field
>>325702189Parshath with 3 pots of greed and TTH is pretty fucking scary.

>>325702337for sureits good shitposting material though
I just learnt some cyber angels play and they are pretty fun to play.I wish they would release more ritual support and also unlimit their cards.
No one ever talks about trunade blackwings with blackbird close in hand.Newfags have no idea how bad an unlimited format would be.
>dkayed mentioning master duelsduel links is finished
>>325661529Battle City when it aired as a kid, came back in after watching the 5Ds subs because that show is wild.For whatever reason nothing past Darz ever aired on TV when I was growing up. It was all reruns of Duelist Kingdom through Battle City and then sometimes Darz. Weird now I think of it.
>>325702378That 1 triamid went against thundra that opened grass, charge and gold sarc.He left the tournament before game 2.
>>325661529>I'm more interested in when people STARTED watching YugiohWhen they sent the tape to me in the mail as a kid out of nowhere.
>>325702703only 3 players used blackwings today, and none of them toppedalso, only 3 players used blue-eyes today, 2 of them topped, and it ended up winning the entire thingits more on e-sabers being everywhere than trunade + bbc not being completely busted
>>325702326You will never pass
>>325661529I started with DM on WB like most kidsI never really cared much for it, though. Even these days I dont give much of a shit about DM
>>325703427>he actually edited itBased Chadtinomy
>>325694167Are you the chad who ran a Blue Eyes mat/sleeve to psyche me out but actually it was NeosActual props to that madlad for daring to take that into ranked, I don't know how I lost but I'm not even mad
There is a cool meta right behind this meta if all the current best decks get hit
>>325702378I think its funnier for the other finalist.Imagine opening your 1 herald/lancea countless times against e-sabers and somehow god handing against every darklord then you find out the final boss is fucking blue-eyes.
Tonight's the night...
>>325704406This time for sure. I have my Kyogres ready
>>325678925Someone have that tom and jerry meme video with desperado and cocytus?
didn't the banlist release at a different time last time? I remember /dlg/ meming about the noble knight structure deck announcement and then like a couple hours later the banlist dropped and we had 3 threads in 6 hours
>>325704142There isn't, realistically we would have a Blackwings, Weather Painters, Triamids, Lunalights, Heroes, Invoked Neos(again), Photons meta.Is there even anything new?
Nothing shark related is getting hit retards, cope more. If anything just banlist treacherous. Shit has been in enough netdecks already
>>325697271I feel like tyrant dragon and the other dragon are bricks if you aren't focusing the deck on shitting on the divine dragon fusion. If you're focusing on horus then you probably shouldn't have those cards.
>>325704671banlists are never at a consistent time.
>>325704671Yes but it was presumed that it took longer than usual because of the cheating
>>325704782Can't wait to see you cope hard when the banlist hits
>>325703427Hello? Based department ?
>>325704493Sorry bro. But there's only groudons here.
Yo wtf I just looked at bobleks deck lists for the first time and if you already have staples you literally just need to oink the structure x3
Rank my sleeves and mat.

>>325705296You should at least mod them or something
>>325704752That would be an original meta anyway, but regardless I'm not saying the current crop of decks should be nuked, just lowered to the level of the decks you posted.

*BOOM**BOOM**CRASH*That's all it takes for konami to release the leaked fire fist support with the intent to make it tier 1, why haven't you invested yet?
>>325709868just do your best and see if you can get a sabre dancer and sin out to OTK. They also have an incredible advantage vs water xyz but water is nowhere near common since its new
>>325710074Because Konami could release literally anything else with the intent to push a tier 1/tier 0 deck so investing in anything until it's actually out is a retarded idea pushed by retards
>>325710074The Water Margin is full of dudes
I just want a good trap care. Ill even take horn of heaven.
Can Levianeer miss the timing or something? my opponent summoned him, activated some effects but not Levianeer's, then he sat there for a moment and scooped.
>>325710451did he summon another one that turn? the effect is only opt

Delta Accel Synchro>>325712969>>325712969>>325712969
I wanna synchro this guy out, what are my options? There doesn't seem to be as easy of a synchro route to level 5 compared to 6 or even 7. Are there searchers for the tuners+non-tuners to get him out fast? Junk synchron is asking for shit to be in the GY so maybe lightsworn is the way to go? i just want to scrap fist a bitch. why the fuck aren't there any searchers for scrap fist on synchro summon???? Yes I know this is an uncompetitive deck no need to remind me
