OMG The idiot that added Survival End didn't read the effect well enough. How can a card be that OP and make it in without being limited or errataed to not be so broken.

You can activate the graveyard effect in the same damn turn. Dino decks have become so obnoxious in ranked. Plat has become a hellhole of the Rock puppets or the Mechs. Sprinkle in some Lavals and the Dinos and you have one hell of a messy ranked system.

I picked this game up again. So far the decks I've mostly completed are Dark Magician and meta Masked Heroes. I just need to finish grinding Canadias.

I'm trying to figure out what deck to make next. I was going to update my Blader/Dark Paladin deck since Buster Blader is also in the meta, but I kind of want to make an off-meta deck and use a less popular archetype.

I'm thinking Gem Knights, but I can't for the life of me find a consistent deck build to get ideas from. Most decks seem to just be 30 card FTKs. I see people mention 20 card decks, but I can't find any lists. So I don't know where to start. Any ideas?

Which one will be nerfed first, Six Samurai or Sartorius' Master of Destiny skill?
They'll probably let Six Samurai be busted for at least a couple months.

And maybe Master of Destiny is fine? Even with a 100% success rate, Arcana Force cards are good but not so good that they overpower some decks that are already popular in the current meta. At least with the current selection of Arcana Force cards. Maybe that'll change after a Sartorius Event rerun with new Arcana Force drops.

I'm surprised that Floodgate and Canadia haven't been nerfed.

New box is amazing and finally six samurai got buffed. I just need Junk to be viable. I got all the good cards from the new box within the first few packs. Everything else was just gravy. Haven't been that lucky with a good box in a while.

Been playing Duel links again more regularly after really only trying a bit at launch and.. really I'm surprised I've felt no urge to pay money, which is having the opposite effect of wanting to give them money just to reward them for the amount of time and enjoyment I've got out of it so far, wish more mobile games would employ this strategy (looking at you KHUX).
Really surprised seeing its.. 1. A konami game and 2. A game all about packs (loot boxes) hoping to get the thing you want. It could so easily be so very worse, but packs have a limited amount of cards, so the more you get the more likely you'll get something you're after, and introduction of tickets which gets you any card of a certain list, most of which have had something I've found very useful to have.
And they even gave away the God cards for free! Though you had to win Slifer I believe and Ra I got from beating Yugi as Marik, but as someone who doesn't consider themselves particularly good, surprised I managed it. I kept expecting a catch. Guess the only thing close of recent memory was against Sartorius, with the destiny ability and a certain item would stop it working 100% of the time.

My only real problem(s) with it are I wish there was at least a 5 monster/spell/trap zone mode. Kinda makes the feasibility of using some monsters/strategies a lot lower, that and some cards that are yet present (Cyber Dragon :(, though I've heard it may be more for balance reasons?, but just annoying when there are cards that link to cyber dragon already, which I know other cards can substitute but.. sigh).
That and I want Zane as a character ha, but missed the chance a while ago it seems :(

Wouldn't say I'm the best at setting up decks either, feel it's mostly monsters and as soon as my "best" monster is gone, it's very unlikely I'll recover, but hopefully will get better with it over time. Like I want a Cyber deck, but without the main cyber dragon doesn't feel worth it and my deck currently mostly focuses on dragons, but I have XYZ dragon cannon monsters in and creator monsters as I've been finding them pretty handy.

Zane can now be unlocked through regular gameplay. Just keep beating Stages in the GX World and Zane should eventually arrive at the Gate, with the opportunity to unlock him afterwards.

Edit: Yeah, get to Stage 6 in GX World.

Doing ranked, man those Deskbots are pretty amazing. 6 Samurai can be pretty broken once Shi En gets on the field but otherwise, fairly easy to defeat. Fuma will probably get limited next ban list. Mechs are still the most annoying. Where the hell are the drawbacks for that stupid dragon's effect! Its way too easy to summon 2 of them in 1 turn.
