Duston Feels.

I'm having a hard time dealing with Konami's recent growing trend of releasing decks slowly, with only one card at a time.

The Noble Knights are one of the best examples of this trend. Noble Knights have been coming out for a little while now (since May of 2012), and are just now coming into their own with three new cards announced for Cosmo Blazer. These include a decent new Noble Arms card, a new monster with no currently known details, and a new Xyz (also with no currently known details). I would have much rather preferred they release a handful of cards (no fewer than 3) in each set rather than stagger them so slowly and boringly. Not to mention the pain of not knowing what the point of the deck even is until enough of the cards come out. But that's not the main deck I'm here to talk about today.

The Duston monsters debuted in Abyss Rising with what appears to be a pivotal card for the archetype - House Duston. These monsters seem to be based on the tiny creatures too small to be seen by the naked eye that reside in our carpets. From the two cards we've seen so far, it seems as if the goal for them is to take over both sides of the field and produce positive and negative effects. Red Duston (also known as skin cancer) seems to be one you'd prefer to summon to your opponent's field with House Duston. It cannot be used for almost ANYTHING worthwhile including Tribute, Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, or even Xyz summons, and it deals a little damage to its controller when destroyed. It literally just takes up space - very reminiscent of the Ojamas. We have no idea what any other members of this archetype do, as even the one that is supposedly planned for release in LTGY hasn't been spoiled yet.

But my point here is that it really sucks to wait so long to put a deck together. It helps your wallet because the demand will be lower for decks that don't even function yet, but I've never been the most patient person. Hopefully Konami will pick things up and release more than just one Duston monster in LTGY, because I REALLY want to play this deck. :(
