Six Samurai Regain New Strength Soon!

Hey, guys! I just done with all my final exams and I gonna share with you all about the latest news of Six Samurai. The latest Shueisha Magazine had mentioned that Six Samurai will get new supported cards soon and detail of it will be revealed soon. The current trend of the Six Samurai deck is speeding synchro deck and it can kill most of the popular deck such as X-Sabers, Machina and Quickdraw Dandy.

Most of the current Six Samurai deck consists of 5 major monsters which are Grandmaster of Six Samurai, True Six Samurai -Kizan, True Six Samurai -Kageki, True Six Samurai -Mizuho and Kagemusha of the Six Samurai. All these monsters are used as major beat-stick monster in Six Samurai deck. As a result, Kizan is very expensive in OCG no matter at Japan or any Asian countries due to its rarity and its popularity.

As I predicted, Six Samurai may get new supported cards for destroying opponent's Spell and Trap card because most of the Six Samurai monsters lack of destroying Spell and Trap cards ability or even cards that can destroy Archlord Kristya or piercing Marshmallon and Spirit Reaper. The release of Structure Deck 20 also helps to brings the popularity of Herald of Perfection to Asian countries and this would become another trend to the OCG circumstances soon. Thus the speed of special summon will a bit slower and new Six Samurai supported cards may overcome this problem.

However, Blackwings also won't much affected by the Herald of Perfection because I predicted Blackwings will also gain new supported cards on next series due to Crow used some new Blackwings cards in the latest episode of 5D's anime. Apart from that, Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier will also reprinted in the GS2011 thus three of the most famous Ice Barrier synchro monster has been reprinted and can be used in the OCG soon. I also hope that Karakuri can get more supported cards because it is one of the potential deck to against most of the current deck and it is quite similar to Scrap deck.

Okay, that's all for today. Thanks for your precious time and hope you guys have a nice day. Please stay tuned for my next post.

Reinforcement of Six Samurai

Hey, guys! Storm of Ragnarok (STOR) has been released to OCG and the full card list has been revealed. As mentioned by Konami, this booster pack's theme is all the Polar God cards which used by the Team Ragnarok. But as we can see, this booster pack is mainly focus on Six Samurai rather than Polar God. This booster pack abbreviation is similar with the Strike of Neos (STON) which also have the theme not regarding to Six Samurai.

So far, Six Samurai is the one of the card series that have almost all kind of support cards in a booster pack. From here, we can see that Six Samurai is one of the card series that boost by Konami rapidly. This booster pack has included around 14 new support cards for Six Samurai and most of these cards are powerful and can be consider as essential components for Six Samurai deck. Therefore, we may see that Six Samurai deck become one of the top decks on OCG start from this weekend.

However, Blackwing also has new support cards but one of the Blackwing cards that may be put into the Blackwing deck by the Blackwing players is Blackwing - Bora the Sharp. This card is quite useful to Blackwing deck because its effect is quite similar to Blackwing - Kalut the Moon Shadow but instead of increasing attack point, it helps to prevent Blackwing monster from battle destroy and receive 0 battle damage plus destroying the attacking monster after the Damage Calculation. Its effect can only be activate once it is in the graveyard. However, it may not activate its effect during opponent's turn. Somehow, we still need to wait for the ruling from Konami to make sure whether its effect can be activate during opponent's turn.

Not just the Six Samurai and Blackwing, this booster also boost up the Karakuri, Watt, Scrap and other series too. Apart from that, a new spirit monster also included in this booster pack which is Yasha. This card may replace the Breaker, The Magical Warrior soon because its effect quite similar to Breaker and instead of destroying the card, it return back the opponent's Spell or Trap card back to opponent's hand. Moreover, dual Plant OTK may become more frequent than before because of the occurrence of Vairon Matter. Vairon Matter helps to retrieve back exactly 3 Equip Spell cards from the graveyard to the owner's deck and then user can choose either one of the effects which are draw a card from the deck or destroy an card controlled by the opponent.

This booster also added another new member for D.D deck which is D.D. Spirit. It is a 1 star tuner and it can be special summon from the hand to the field by removing from play a face-up monster on the field. The monster removed from played with this card effect will be returned to the controller field during your next Standby Phase. Moreover, this booster pack also included support cards for "Resonator" monsters and new "Skill Drain" which is Tyrant's Reckless Words. However, its activation cost a bit higher than Skill Drain. It required 2 monsters as activation cost but it also negate the monster's effect which activate on hand and field. For further details of STOR, please visit this page.

Start from this week, we may see a new top deck always occur on OCG which might be Six Samurai. However, their best rival might be Blackwing. Somehow, Six Samurai do have Magatama of Musakani to stop the Icarus Attack from Blackwing players. So we might see an interesting duel between these two decks soon. Another good news for all OCG players is Trishula, Ice Barrier Dragon has been confirmed to be reprint in GS2011 thus most of the OCG players may have a copy of it in their main extra deck soon.

Here are some guideline for building your Six Samurai deck:
True Six Samurai -Kizan x3
True Six Samurai -Kageki x3
True Six Samurai -Shinai x2
True Six Samurai -Mizuho x2
Grandmaster of Six Samurai x3
