Frog Monarch based on September 2011 Ban List

Hey, guys! September 2011 ban list have been revealed for a week and a lot of people thought that this ban list will shutdown most of the current meta deck. However, I'm personally think that this ban list still give most of the decks a lot of potential. Based on the new ban list, we can see that Debris Plant is affected the most and its speed is slow down. Lightsworn gonna back to the mainstream very soon!

But I can see that X-Saber, Infernity, Agents Fairy, Junk Doppel and Quickdraw Plant once again back to the mainstreams. With the aid of XX-Saber Darksoul and XX-Saber Boggart Knight in OCG, the X-Saber might become glory because Heavy Storm has back. X-Saber is focus on control and swarming thus they afraid of the disturbance of traps. With the coming back of 3 MST and Heavy Storm, their deck is far more destructive and will back to Tier 1 in OCG very soon.

Infernity also will get their support card, Infernity Barrier after this September and Infernity Barrier is the one-time Herald of Perfection. Infernity is also a deck that dislike traps thus it is very depend on the trap destruction cards. Apart from that, Infernity will get another new support card, Infernity General that enable them to Xyz summon Rank 3 monster more rapidly. As a result, I think that this deck might be topping in most of the tournaments soon.

Anyway, this ban list format also make a lot of decks putting Effect Veiler, Quick-Play Spell such as Enemy Controller, Forbidden Chalice, Forbidden Lance or My Body As Shield, and Starlight Road in the main deck. Thus we will see a lot of negation cards in this new format. Although Judgment Dragon is unlimit and Necro Gardna is semi-limit, I still don't see much of improving in the speed of the Lightsworn deck. The major threat for Lightsworn deck would be Agents Fairy, thus we might see these two decks topping in most of the OCG tournaments.

Although the new ban list kill a lot of decks such as Fishborg Synchro, Monarch Synchro, Cloudian Synchro, Psychic FTK, T.G. Control(TCG) and etc. With this new format, a lot of people may switch to play Twilight deck. However, I like to be odd from the others thus I like to share my recipe of Frog Monarch for this format. I still see a lot of potential on Frog Monarch and this ban list may make it a bit better than previous format although Fishborg Blaster is banned. This deck might not be Tier 1 but I think this deck able to against Dark World very well.

Result for Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011

Hey, guys! This week gonna be an interesting week because we can check out the final result of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011 and also the September 2011 ban list. However, the ban list will only reveal between 17th-20th August 2011 thus please stay tuned for it.

Without the appearance of Reborn Tengu in the final of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011, the world championship is much more fair and from there, we can foresee which cards would be hit into the September 2011 ban list. This time the final is quite interesting because wide variety of decks was compete in this grand event and this reflected that current environment is quite healthy others than some of the broken cards. Apart from that, this is the first world championship that applying OCG Xyz rulings and no priority for activating monster Ignition effect other than Speed Spell 2 monster's effect.

Actually I'm quite doubt about the Xyz ruling that announced from Kevin Tewart because all Yugioh cards should applied a standard of rules due to this game was origin from Japan and the Xyz rulings for OCG is much more fair compare with the TCG rulings. Hopefully, TCG will applied our OCG Xyz rulings and no priority for activating monster Ignition effect other than Speed Spell 2 monster even after the world championship.

Oops! Look like I was a bit off topic already. Okay, let's return to the result for Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2011. Before we went through the result, let's us see the top 8 deck that shows up in this event 1st. The top 8 decks consists of 4 Junk Doppel, 1 Agent Fairy, 1 Machina Gadget and 2 Six Samurai. 4th place is win by Phanupak Kongjaroen(Machina Gadget) from Thailand, 3rd place is won by Galileo De Obaldia(Junk Doppel) from Panama, 2nd place is won by Murakoshi Kei(Junk Doppel) from Japan and the winner is Ogawa Takashi(Agent Fairy) from Japan.

Let's us give a round applaud to Ogawa Takashi for winning the title of Yugioh World Championship 2011 and this is the first year of having 2 different structure decks(SD18 and SD20) topping in the top 8 in this event. Hopefully, we may see 3 or 4 structure decks(SD18, SD19, SD20, SD21) topping in this event by next year. Without wasting your time, come and view the deck list of our new world champion.
