Steelswarm Roach, Infernity Barrier, and Photon Strike Bounzer Reprints

I wake up to about six videos in my Youtube stream about the same. damn. thing. Good ol' Youtube!

Although I am sad that this tin did not include any actual Prophecy cards as I thought it would, the cards it DOES include are an incredibly generous offering. At the time of this writing, the following cards cost this much (per Troll and Toad):

Roach: 32.99
Barrier: 28.99
Strike Bounzer: 34.99

These are just front-page prices, so there could be even higher ones on the actual sale pages, but either way you can see how big of a deal this is. So let's talk about the ramifications, shall we?

Two of the best Xyz Monsters are now available for common use. We didn't have to wait a full year for Strike Bounzer, but Roach will have been out for about a year and a half by the time the tin comes out. Unfortunately, this makes Infernities much easier to play, and as a result you should be prepared to see more of them in your local area. Personally, I'm almost too happy about Strike Bounzer to even give a damn about Infernities, but I swear if somebody plays that shit against me I'll have their head. XD (Especially if they win.)

This is ironic considering I played some stupid noob on DN earlier today who, among other things, didn't understand that chaining his set Call of the Haunted to my MST targeting it did not save it from being destroyed, didn't understand that sending his Inferntiy Necromancer to the grave for a Synchro Summon left my Fiendish Chain on the field meaninglessly, and didn't believe that summoning his monsters back with Infernity General negated their effects even though it clearly states this on the fucking card. Let's have a picture, shall we?


There just always has to be that one promo that nobody really needed but that is reprinted for our pals in Europe, i.e. Endless Decay. (This is probably the only publication you'll even see that mentions him, lollll. He's not even that bad of a card, really.) I swear if I was in charge, that shit would be fixed SO fast. Also, it's a bit weird that Konami revealed every promo on the same day compared to the slogfest of the previous tins. But whatever, I'm happy!

Locals Report 11/16/12

My second tournament at the new store! I made a large number of changes based on my deck’s performance the previous week, but since I’m writing this more than a week after the actual tournament’s conclusion I’m not sure of the exact build I had. Nevertheless, here’s my best guess:

Locals Report 11/23/12

I just got back and I have a headache and my back is hurting (as per usual), so I'll try to make this short. Here's the build I used for this event, with the exception of Daigusto Phoenix being a Papilloperative irl:

Welcome to my blog!

There could be anywhere from two to five people who end up here for the first time because of my latest video - here is your official welcome. Feel free to follow/join with your accounts if you want! A lot of my posts on here will probably be short, but the main objective here is for me to keep this page running more consistently than my Youtube channel did in recent months. Hopefully blogging instead of making videos will allow me more time to focus both on school and getting competitively better at this game of gambles. If you have any questions about my channel or why I'm making this switch (or anything Yugioh-related at all) I'd love to answer them, so comment down below. Later!
