Return of the Dark World

Hey, guys! Today I will share a news regarding the Dark World Structure Deck (SD21) to you guys. This deck is gonna released on this coming June 2011 in OCG and we have gathered the news of all the new cards included in this structure deck.

Basically, this structure deck is powerful enough and it can be play instantly when we bought 3 boxes of SD21. The new cards that have revealed in latest edition of Shueisha magazine were Snow, Magician of Dark World; Ceruli, Monk of Dark World and Strategy of the Dark. The effect of Snow, Magician of Dark World is "if this card is discarded from the hand to the Graveyard by a card effect, add 1 "Dark World" card from your deck to your hand. If this card is discarded from the hand to the Graveyard by your opponent's card effect, you can select 1 monster in your opponent's graveyard and special summon it to your field in face-up defense position". 

The effect of Ceruli, Monk of Dark World is "if this card is discarded from the hand to the Graveyard by a card effect, special summon this card to your opponent's field in face-up defense position. If this card is successfully special summoned by the effect of a "Dark World" card, your opponent selects 1 card in their hand and discards it". The effect of Strategy of the Dark is "each player selects 2 cards in their hand and discard them, then draw 2 cards from their deck. Your opponent can negate this card effect by discarding 1 card from their hand".

This deck is powerful with the existence of Ceruli, Monk of Dark World and it made Dark World deck can be focus on control type. With it, we can triggered the second effect of several Dark World monster such as Reign-Beaux, Overlord of Dark World; Grapha, Dragon God of Dark World; Sillva, Warlord of Dark World; Snow, Magician of Dark World and Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World. Apart from that, we have Dark World search card engine which quite similar to Infernity Archfiend. With Snow, Magician of Dark World, we can search for almost any Dark World cards and add it from the deck to our hand.

Moreover, this SD also reprinted Tragoedia, Belial - Marquis of Darkness and Darkness Neosphere. With the reprinted of Tragoedia, we can see some of the decks play it in their main especially for OCG. Thus, this card will be populated in most the deck soon. Besides that, powerful magic card such as Dark World Dealings, Dark World Lightning and Card Destruction also reprinted in this SD. With the reprinted of all these goodies, this deck may become the next new structure deck that majorly pop-up in the tournament soon. Thus, please don't feel surprise of the occurrence of Dark World deck in the upcoming tournament soon.

Apart from that, I also predicted that Mainspring will have the potential to be the next theme deck others than Scrap deck because Konami currently boost a lot of this theme cards in the coming booster pack too. I think that synchro monster will not be printed in the 7th series of OCG booster packs others than the upcoming Gold Series 4. Thus, we will see more and more exceed monsters will be introduced in the upcoming booster packs or even duelist pack.

Okay, that's all for today! I will ended my post here. Thanks for your precious time and wish you guys have a nice day!

Plant Exceed Synchro is coming soon!

Hey, guys! Sorry for not updating in these few weeks. I was busy with my internship report during that time. Today I would like to share a thought about the new style of exceed plus synchro summon which is Plant Exceed Synchro. This new playing style might be the next replacement for Junk Doppel Synchro. It is much more emphasize on the special summon of monster and re-used of exceed material.

Before I started with the explanation on deck combos, I will share with you guys the deck list first. This deck basically theme on the special summon of plant monster and a bit of focus on removed from play. The key card in this deck is Lonefire Blossom and the second key card in Extra deck is Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel (虚空海竜リヴァイエール) which released in the GENF booster pack.

Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel x3
Formula Synchron x1
Gaia Knight, the Force of Earth x1
No. 17 Revise Dragon x1
No. 39 Aspiring Emperor Hope x1
Scrap Dragon x1
Splendid Rose x1
Stardust Dragon x1
Trishula, Ice Barrier Dragon x1

This deck focused on the re-use of Lonefire Blossom. To achieve this mission, we need to removed from play Lonefire Blossom 1st, then overlay Dandylion and another 3 star monster to exceed summon Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel. Then we use its effect by removing Dandylion to special summon the out of play Lonefire Blossom. From there, we use Lonefire Blossom's effect to special summon Tytannial, Princess of Camellias from the deck.

Through this strategy, we keep on using Tytannial, Princess of Camellias to control the field and Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel to re-use the effect of Lonefire Blossom to synchro summon or exceed summon. All these steps required the helps of Miracle Fertilizer and Miracle Fertilizer will not be destroyed by its effect if we use the special summon monster as exceed material. Therefore, we can keep on re-use the effect of Dandylion again and again.

However, this combo is easily interrupted by cards such as Mystical Space Typhoon, Dust Tornado and so on because our key cards consisted of Lonefire Blossom, Dandylion and Miracle Fertilizer. Apart from that, this deck also required cards to be removed from play so that we can use the effect of Empty Space Sea Serpent Levaiel thus this combo is a bit harder to be achieve.

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