Yu-Gi-Oh: Dimension Force!

Get ready to warp the meta with Yu-Gi-Oh’s spring set release, Dimension Force! Bend the laws of reality with brand new archetypes and some pesky old favourites making their return!

The Pendulum gang is back at it! This set will see some brand new Performpal and Odd-Eyes cards to help welcome the brand new Ritual Pendulum monster! Expect some extra Pendulum support from a brand new Link monster to get your deck engine running.

Do you have no affection for the Pendulum crew? Then why not resurrect some love for Zombie decks! Wield the power of a brand new Red-Eyes Zombie monster to special summon other Zombie cards to the field. Not only that, but the Red-Eyes Zombie can even resurrect itself from the Graveyard!

Not enough for you? Then check out the return of Predaplant and Starving Venom with a new Fusion monster to eat your opponents creatures! Or perhaps dive into the Psychic deck archetype, where a brand new Synchro summon monster will decimate your opponent’s board. When you are shifting through dimensions, anything is possible!

Dimension Force

Dimension Force comes out on May 20th, 2022!

Battle of Chaos!

It’s time to get your Magicians at the ready! Battle of Chaos is the first set of 2022 for Yu-Gi-Oh! Power up your Dark Magician with brand new support or explore new archetypes to command the field!

Yugi Muto’s Dark Magician is getting some help in this upcoming set! There will be a brand new Ritual and Fusion Monster, and a brand new Dragon Monster known as Timaeus! Add these to your next Dark Magician deck and you will have a formidable build that your opponents will not see coming.

If you are looking for support for cards and archetypes introduced in Burst of Destiny, then you are in luck! There is going to be a big boost to Icejade decks, including a brand new Swordsoul Synchro Monster. If that is not up your alley, then how about new cards for chill decks, such as Vampires and Ghostrick? If you are looking for something fresh off the press, then go to the brand new Aesir archetype! These Norse inspired Monsters and Relic cards will not do you wrong.

The Battle of Chaos Booster Set will come out February 10th, 2022!

The Grand Creators!

The Grand Creators is an upcoming set for Yu-Gi-Oh!, and it is going to be a game changer. This booster release will introduce three new archetypes, and officially welcome the 2020 winner of the Create-A-Card Project for Inzektor decks!

These new archetypes will add diverse challenges to the current meta. Channel the power of magical artists and summon Psychic monsters to the field, then Synchro summon into a massive level 11 Synchro Beast! Or why not pack a punch with a full party of heroes, and tell the story of a heroic protagonist willing to do anything to achieve his quest!

But keep your eye on your opponent’s cards – if you start to see soul Spellcasters, watch out! They will stop you from activating your graveyard abilities, transforming to Xyz behemoths!

The new spell card card for Inzektor decks was built and pitched by fans! This card will allow you to summon a Inzektor monster or Equip Spell from your deck and play it right away! If you are an Inzektor player, make sure not to sleep on this beauty.

The Grand Creators Booster Set will come out on January 13th, 2022!

But don’t think that non-collector decks are being left out in the cold. We are going to see some brand new support for Utopia decks, as well as @Ignister decks! Take control of a new form of Utopia Ray, swarm Special Summon monsters to the field, and claim victory! But make sure to keep an eye out for a reprint of Forbidden Droplet!

Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm!

It’s time to chase the wind, adventurer! Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm is coming soon, offering all the wind monsters your heart could desire!

Check out this set’s support for Speedroids, which Yugo used throughout Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. These robots are great for quickly building synchro summons. Build into some brand new synchro dragons, such as Clear Wing Synchro Dragon or the powerful Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon. There is even a brand new dragon synchro never before seen in the anime or the TCG!

However, this is certainly not the only synchro option in the set. You could also build into Chevalier de Fleur, the main monster in Sherry LeBlanc’s deck from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s. Build up your field, then summon this absolute beast to the field to negate spell or trap cards once per turn!

Moving away from synchro summons, this set will also have massive support for Xyz summoning! Based on Lulu Lyrilusc’s deck in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, we can expect a lot of Winged Beasts to quickly build into Rank 1 Xyz monsters. Build your board as large as possible to get as many Xyz materials as you can, then bring out the big guns!

Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm

Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm comes out October 29th, 2021!

Build It Your Way: Yu-Gi-Oh Burn

Yu-Gi-Oh is a card game with a multitude of ways to play. You can throw your favourite cards into a deck and watch where luck and fate leads you, or you can carefully curate cards to build yourself a winning strategy to work towards. Today we are going to look at a simple but deceptively aggressive deck-building strategy: The Burn Deck.

The basic premise of Yu-Gi-Oh involves both players scoring cards from their deck to stack their side of the field. The aim is to obtain progressively more powerful monsters, spells, and traps to defeat the opponent’s monsters and whittle down their 8000 Life Points.

A typical turn involves multiple phases: draw phase (draw cards), standby phase (card effects activate), main phase 1 (summoning and moving cards), battle phase (attack enemy monsters), main phase 2 (post-battle card movements), and end phase (final effects and card discards before transitioning to other player’s turn). Ordinarily, a player’s goal during a turn is to work towards buffing themselves and weakening their opponent so they can clear the field and do as much damage as possible during the battle phase.

At its core, it’s a game of mathematics: the higher number attack monsters destroy the lower ones, and the difference between the two numbers is subtracted from the weaker side’s Life Points. If there are no monsters in opposition, then the attacking monster damages the Life Points directly. But what if you wanted to skip the monster battling part and simply jump to the attacking directly? That’s where a Burn Deck comes in.

A Burn Deck strategy focuses on creating a deck that skips the battle phase entirely, including spells and monster cards with abilities that attack the opponent’s life points directly. It can leave you fairly defenseless since Burn Decks aren’t typically focused on summoning strong monsters, but this can be prevented by having a fair amount of low level monsters to place in defense as fodder, or having cards which restrict battle on the field such as Mystic Mine.

There are two basic Burn Deck strategies: Fast and Stall. A Fast Burn Deck focuses on having powerful burn cards to inflict massive damage and end the game in a few turns. A Stall Burn Deck incorporates Stall cards that will prevent your opponent from attacking, allowing you to slowly chip away at their Life Points or utilize certain burn cards which get more powerful over time.

Here are a few basic burn cards no matter the strategy being used:

Monsters:

  • Lava Golem

  • Exxod, Master of the Guard

  • Marshmallon

  • Volcanic Queen

Spells:

  • Oozaki

  • Wave-Motion Cannon

  • Cauldron of the Old Man

  • Dark Room of Nightmare

  • Spell Shattering Arrow

Yu-Gi-Oh

Traps:

  • Just Desserts

Yu-Gi-Oh

  • Secret Blast

Yu-Gi-Oh

  • Blazing Mirror Force

Yu-Gi-Oh

  • Ring of Destruction

Yu-Gi-Oh

  • Fairy Wind

Yu-Gi-Oh

There are plenty of ways to modify a Burn Deck or combine it with other strategies, so look through your existing cards to see which ones have burn effects, or seek out brand new cards to build yourself a scorching deck and win those duels!

Yu-Gi-Oh: King’s Court

Hear ye, hear ye! Royalty have come to the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! Check out all the King’s horses and all the King’s men in the King’s Court booster set release for Yu-Gi-Oh!

The King’s Court set release sees the return of the King’s Knight, Queen’s Knight, and Jack’s Knight! However, you can’t have your galas and masquerades without the jester. Make sure to look for the Joker’s Knight, who is able to be a free pull from your Graveyard, then turn into any of the three knights!

However, the Joker’s Knight is not the main attraction. Arcana Triumph Joker takes the stage in this set, able to power up depending on the amount of cards in both your opponent’s and your hand! Not only that – control the game by destroying cards on board by discarding cards from your hand!

Not enough for you? Then dive in for the Slifer, The Sky Dragon support, offering some key Slifer tributes without having to sacrifice play ability. This set has everything to make sure you command the board, regardless if you are a king or a pauper!

King's Court

King’s Court comes out on July 8th, 2021!
