OCG Rulings of XX-Saber Darksoul

Hey, guys! Sorry for not updating my blog since last week because I'm already back to my university for continuing my final semester of studies. Thus I will spend less time on updating my blog. Anyway, today I would like to share the latest rulings regarding XX-Saber Darksoul that just been released in EXP4 in OCG.

In OCG, XX-Saber Darksoul is no longer an imbalance card for X-Saber because of the effect of new rulings. Below are its latest rulings:
Q1: If this card is send to the graveyard multiple times within a turn, during end phase of the turn can I add 1 "X-Saber" monster to my hand for each time it is send to the graveyard?
A1: No, no matter how many time this card is send to the graveyard, during the end phase of the turn, you can only add 1 "X-Saber" monster to your hand.

Q2: Does its effect is activate when it is send to the graveyard?
A2: No, its effect is activate during the end phase of the turn this card is send to the graveyard(chainable). When it is send to the graveyard, its effect is not activate.

Q3: During the turn this card is send to the graveyard, if it is removed from the graveyard by other card's effect even it is during the end phase, can I still activate its effect?
A3: No.

Anyway, XX-Saber Darksoul is still powerful although the new rulings has take place because it is still a Sangan in X-Saber deck. Besides, Konami has officially revealed its date of releasing Gold Series 2012 and it will be released on 7 January 2012. I truly hoping Konami will reprint Chain Disappearance, Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress, Caius Shadow Monarch, TG Hyper Librarian, Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning and etc in the upcoming Gold Series 2012.

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

Upcoming Structure Deck(SD22) in OCG

Extra Pack 4

Hey, guys! Today I would like to share some of my thoughts regarding the upcoming structure deck that is SD22 - Dragonic Legion which gonna distribute on 10th December 2011 in OCG. This SD is the next SD that mainly focus on Light and Dark attribute's Dragon and once again we will see 2 UR and 1 SR cards in the SD22 which followed the old trend of SD like Structure Deck Yugi, Kaiba, Joey and Pegasus.

Anyway, I still wondering whether this deck can maintain their consistency and combos just like their previous SD series from SD18 till SD21. This is due to most of the dragon's monster having high attack but less destruction effect or search engine except those synchro monster. Thus it is a need for Konami to add a new search engine for the Dragons. Apart from that, I can predict that the new cover card or their boss will having some destruction effect that similar like Master Hyperion.

Hopefully, Konami will reprint some of the useful dragons and its support cards such as Light and Darkness Dragon, Koa'ki Meru Drago, Explorer Dragon, Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, Prime Material Dragon, Dragon's Mirror, Trade-In, Gold Sarcophagus, Starlight Road and others. I also would predicts that the new spell card in this SD might be another new drawing engine by referring to the previous SD series. For the new trap card, I wish it will be an useful card that can protect dragons from being destroyed.

Moreover, Konami have officially announce the Xyz rulings and no more Tengu or Tourguide-Sangan Xyz combo. For the losing of priority for activating Ignition's effect of monster, Konami will announce it later so that the game will play in a same standard no matter you are playing in OCG or TCG environment. Next week, OCG will release EXP4 that contained all those TCG-exclusive cards and we may see more variety of decks will be play after this. I personally think that X-Saber, Infernity and Gravekeeper may rise in the OCG although they are having pressure against Twilight, Agents Fairy, Dark World, Lightsworn and etc.

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

Good Side Against Tier 1

Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning

Hey, guys! Today I would like to share several cards that will become important in the new format. Few more weeks later, Extra Pack Volume 4 will be released in OCG and it will support most of the existing theme decks such as X-Saber, Infernity, Fiend, Nordic and etc. Although most of these decks will gain their new support cards, I still can see that Twilight/Chaos deck will be one of the major decks topping in the tournament.
Chaos Hunter

Thus we need to have good side against these tier 1 decks. If we faced with Twilight deck then we can side in Chaos Hunter. Chao Hunter effect is "when your opponent special summon a monster, you can discard 1 card to special summon this card from your hand. Your opponent cannot remove cards from play." This card is very useful against Twilight deck because most of the Twilight deck will have Chaos Sorcerer, Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning, Bottomless Trap Hole and etc. With it, you can lock their special summon or banishing effect easily.
Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer

Apart from that, Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer will again become useful against Twilight, Lightsworn, Infernity, X-Saber and etc due to it can prevent your opponent from banishing their cards in the graveyard to special summon monsters and you can banish their key cards too. Starlight Road can also be siding because it can used to prevent massive destruction especially cards such as Dark Hole, Icarus Attack, Torrential Tribute, Black Rose Dragon and etc.

Besides that, Spell and Traps destruction cards such as Dust Tornado and etc still needed in the side deck because although Heavy Storm has been unbanned, a lot of players would still set a number of traps with the protection of Starlight Road and Dark Bribe. Chaos Trap Hole can also put in the side since more and more twilight deck is topping in the major tournament. Maxx C can also be used since a lot of special summon themed deck will be played in most of the tournament.

 Xyz Quick Facts

Moreover, TCG has announced the quick facts of Xyz(shown in the picture above). The text that illustrated in the picture is as below:
-Xyz monsters are summoned using monsters that are the same level.
-You can only use actual monster cards. No tokens allowed!
-The monsters used for the Summon become "Xyz materials" attached on the monster.
-Xyz material cards are not technically "on the field", so they can't be destroyed by card effects, etc.
-When a card tells you to "Detach" an Xyz material, send that material card to the graveyard.
Actual monster card in this text is including all type of monster card except token and trap monster. The new statement means that the card stack below the Xyz monster is not monster card nor equip card but it is material card. Thus Xyz material such as Sangan or Reborn Tengu cannot activate their effect when they are used as Xyz materials and detach from the Xyz monster.

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