Special Thought of Galactic Overlord

Hey, guys! Today I gonna share some combos regarding the new booster, Galactic Overlord(GAOV) that had officially release on 17th February 2012. Previously, I have reveal the real ban list and I knew this ban list style is a bit differ from previous ban list. Lot of the players complaining the forbid of Trishula, Glow-Up Bulb and Spore while not hitting any of the current tier deck yet.

Anyway, there must be reasons and solutions for solving the March 2012 ban list problem and Konami will not simply earning your money without doing anything. I expected that Konami will introduce some new techniques to against these META decks in the upcoming booster or structure deck. Besides that, I think that Reborn Tengu will be reprinted in the OCG's tournament pack.

Konami banning Glow-Up Bulb and Spore these two tuner but not limiting them because limiting them does not have any effect due to they can be special summon by the Lonefire Blossom and both tuners are too splashable in synchro-based deck. The reason of T.G. Striker and Agent of Mystery, Earth are limit because TG Agent Fairy have splashing their deck with these two cards while control style deck use T.G. Striker as one of the staple in their deck and most important reason is it is a Tuner monster.

Okay, let's back to my main topic. This booster have introduce few archetype of cards such as the Hieroglyph while supporting the existing themes such as Inzektor, Evo, Photon and Gagaga. I think most of the players already knew how great the Hieroglyph engine is and I will not discuss it now. I personally like to recommend several GAOV cards that can be used in the deck.

Tasuke Knight
Level 4/Attribute: Light
[Warrior/Effect monster/Effect]
When an opponent's monster declares an attack, if this card is in your Graveyard and you have no cards in your hand: You can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard and end the Battle Phase. Each player can only use the effect of "Tasuke Knight" once per Duel.
ATK: 1700  DEF: 100

First of all, I recommended Tasuke Knight and it can be used in handless deck, Infernity. This card just works like a one-time Battle Fader and it can be used as synchro or Xyz material. Thus you can prevent your monster especially Infernity Necromancer / Dark Grepher from battle destroy while allowing you to synchro or Xyz summon. It is just like the mixture of Infernity Avenger and Battle Fader.

Lightray Diabolos
Level 7/Attribute: Light
[Dragon/Effect monster/Effect]
Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by having 5 or more LIGHT monsters with different names in your Graveyard, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Once per turn: You can banish 1 LIGHT monster from your Graveyard to target 1 Set card your opponent controls; reveal that target, and return it to either the top or bottom of the Deck.
ATK: 2800  DEF: 1000

The next card that I gonna introduce is Lightray Diabolos that can be used in the Lightsworn deck. It can work as an additional beat stick for Lightsworn and to bait the opponent's Bottomless Trap Hole, Solemn Warning or Torrential Tribute while helps to clear field so that Judgment Dragon can special summon safely. Lightsworn players can try to merge a piece of it into the Lightsworn deck especially after the applied of March 2012 ban list.

Thunderclap Knight - Gaia Dragoon
Rank 7/Attribute: Wind
[Dragon/Xyz monster/Effect]
2 Level 7 monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using 1 face-up Rank 5 or 6 Xyz Monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials of this card.) If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing Battle Damage to your opponent.
ATK: 2600  DEF: 2100

The third card that I wanna recommend is Thunderclap Knight - Gaia Dragoon and this card is one of the Xyz monster that allow you to Xyz summon by just using either Rank 5 or 6 Xyz monster. Apart from that, its effect doesn't required any Xyz material to activate and this is the first Xyz effect monster that doesn't required Xyz material to gain its effect. You can use Mind Control / Enemy Controller / Mark of the Rose to snatch opponent's Rank 5 or 6 Xyz monster to Xyz summon it or use your Rank 5 or 6 Xyz monster that no longer have any Xyz material attached to it as its Xyz material.

Dragon Devil - Queen Dragoon 
Rank 4/Attribute: Dark
[Dragon/Xyz monster/Effect]
2 Level 4 monsters
Dragon-Type monsters, except "Dragon Devil - Queen Dragoon", cannot be destroyed by battle. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 Level 5 or higher Dragon-Type monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. Its effects are negated and it cannot attack this turn.
ATK: 2200  DEF: 1200

For the fourth card, I suggest Queen Dragun / Dragon Devil - Queen Dragoon(Japanese translation) to Chaos Dragon players. It can helps to increase the number of Dark attribute monster in the graveyard while helps in reviving your level 5 or above dragon in your graveyard to use as the cost for special summon Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon from your hand or use it as the synchro or Xyz material. You can Xyz summon it by using your Eclipse Wyvern and any other level 4 monster and then you can detached Eclipse Wyvern to banish a level 7 or above Dragon's monster from your deck.

Night Shot
[Normal Spell]
Target 1 set spell/trap card on your opponent controls; destroy that target. Your opponent cannot activate that target in response to this card's activation

The fifth card that I gonna recommend is Night Shot which is the substitution card for Mystical Space Typhoon to against those Chain Burn deck. With this card, you no longer will afraid opponent for chaining their cards and you will have greater chances to overcome your opponent strategy. I personally think that this card quite suitable to the decks that required to clear the opponent set cards in order to OTK opponent.

Dimension Slide
[Normal Trap]
When a monster is Special Summoned to your side of the field: Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; banish that target. If the Special Summon was an Xyz Summon, you can activate this card during the turn it was Set.

Last but not least, Dimension Slide is the new version of Bottomless Trap Hole that allow you to banish your opponent face-up monster on the field. With this card, you can banish your opponent's Stardust Dragon / Gatchi Gatchi Gantetsu / Wind-Up Zenmaines / any monster card that can prevent destroy. You can combo this card with the T.G. Warwolf to against Wind-Up Carrier Zenmaity, Rabbit or any special summon-based deck.

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

Real March 2012 Ban List

(Credit to

Hey, guys! Today I would like to share the latest news for March 2012 ban list. As you guys await for weeks, the new ban list finally reveal on today. This new ban list does not much affected most of the current META others than Agent Fairy, Synchro-based and Lightsworn. Below are just the cards that change in the current ban list.

Trishula, Ice Barrier Dragon
Glow-up Bulb
Trap Dustshoot

The Agent of Mystery - Earth
T.G. Striker

Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner
Reborn Tengu (TCG)
Emergency Teleport
Shien's Smoke Signal
Level Limit - Area B 
Torrential Tribute
Ultimate Offering

No longer restrict:
Call of The Haunted

In this new list, one of the brother of Ice Barrier Dragon, Trishula is listed in the forbidden list. So we won't see anymore of Trishula after March 2012. The popular plant tuner, Spore and Glow-up Bulb also listed in this ban list. Besides that, Trap Dustshoot is joining the gang of hand peeking in the forbidden list now.

I can predict that Inzektor, Wind-Up and Dark World may be the new Meta in OCG and TCG soon. So guys please prepare some Insect Killer for this new format. Lightsworn and Agent Fairy may be become a bit unstable after the effect of this new format. The new format will be much more chaos than previous ban list thus all players should be ready for this format with the main of Effect Veiler or Maxx C in your deck. Else you will get into trouble easily.

Okay, that's all I wanna share today. Before I end my post, I would like to credit forum for updating the news and pictures on time. Thanks for your precious time to read this post and wish you guys have a nice day. Please stay tuned for my next post.

Chaos Dragon Build

Hey, guys! Today I gonna share my recipe of Chaos Dragon that I have promised in my previous post. This build is much more rely on deck milling and it is an OTK based deck.

Axe Dragonute x2
Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of The Beginning x1
Blue-Eyes White Dragon x2
Card Trooper x2
Chaos Sorcerer x2
Darkflare Dragon x3
Divine Dragon Apocralyph x3
Eclipse Wyvern x3
Gorz The Emissary of Darkness x1
Lightpulsar Dragon x3
Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress x1

Thunder Dragon x1
Tiras, Keeper of Genesis x1
Trishula, Ice Barrier Dragon x1

Basically, you just need to spam your monster as fast as possible through milling enough of Light and Dark attribute monsters to the graveyard. This build might be more faster and consistent as I experiment it on DN. This deck very emphasize on how you want to mill your card in a better way and how you gonna waste your opponent resources. The weakness of this deck is it is hard to against those deck that rely on heavy traps.

Apart from that, this month gonna be the fake ban list spreading month. As mentioned by DSummon (, you guys will see a lot of fake/ photo-edited ban list picture on the internet. Please do not simply believe those post unless it is posted with the full card picture of Number 15: Gimmick Puppet - Giant Killer. The real ban list will be revealed in the V-Jump magazine and mostly we can see the real ban list between 17-20th February 2012. So please be alert for the fake ban list.

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