5Ds Decade Duels – Terrible Yugioh Video Game

Yugioh Decade Duels could possibly the worst Yugioh video game ever created. Yugioh World Championships 2011 is a very good game though and I greatly recommend it.

Yugioh Decade Duels, you guys probably have heard of this video game right? Well, I played it yesterday and it may have been one of the most abysmal Yugioh games I have ever played! It is so bad! There is no depth to the game as you play the same single player mode over and over again. The multi-player stinks as well; it lags a lot and it takes forever to find an opponent.

End of Yugioh 5Ds Marks the Start of Yugioh Zexal

Episode 154 of Yugioh 5Ds marked the last 5Ds episode and it was possibly one of the best episodes of the series. In episode 154, also known as Shining Forth to the Future, the main characters all part ways and it shows how they are all doing in the future. It emphasizes friendship and bondage so it was a very sentimental yet feel-good episode. Now that Yugioh 5Ds is over, Konami is making a new series, Yugio Zexal. The first episode was released a few days ago and to tell you the truth, it didn’t look very good.

Yugioh Zexal revolves around a boy named Yuma who unlocks some sort of spirit from his dream world that helps him duel, similar to Yubel who later acts as an aid to Jaden. The show also introduces a new type of monsters known as exceed monsters; all of them are pretty easy to summon and some of them have stellar effects. Despite this introduction, Zexal looks pretty boring and the storyline is kind of repeating that of Yugioh and Yugioh 5Ds, where the duelists duel with some sort of spirit.

Though I criticized Yugioh 5Ds, which I enjoyed later or, when it was released, Yugioh Zexal just looks stupid. The characters look very hollow and there doesn’t seem to be an intense rivalry. Yes, there is a boy named Shark that Yuma forms a rivalry with but it just doesn’t seem nearly as intense as the rivalry between Yugi-Kaiba, Jaden-Zane, or Yusei-Jack.

New Yugioh Booster Pack: Storm of Ragnarok

The new Yugioh booster pack, Storm of Ragnarok, was released four days ago. The Storm of Ragnarok features cards in the distorted timeline arc such as Stardust Shimmer, Zero Force, and the cover card of the pack; Odin, Father of the Aesir. The fierce ruler of Asgard has the ability to revive itself by removing a ‘Nordic Ascendant’ monster from play when destroyed. For the turn that it’s special summoned, Odin is unaffected by spell trap cards. Along with Odin, the other two (powerful) Nordic legends, Loki and Thor, are available in the pack as well!

The Storm of Ragnarok looks like an awesome booster pack, not only because of the release of the Nordic Gods, but of the loads of support it brings for new archetypes as well. The Legendary Samurai archetype gets a lot of support, as a semi-archetype known as the Legendary Six Samurai debut in this booster pack. Blackwings also get some good support and there as a powerful new addition to the Elemental Hero archetype as well (Elemental Hero Ice Edge)! Storm of Ragnarok will also be featured in the upcoming Yugioh video game, World Championships 2011: Over the Nexus.

ZONE is Yusei?

I was reading the spoilers of the upcoming Yugioh 5Ds episodes, and when I reached Yugioh 5Ds episode 149: The Revived Hero, I was shocked at what I read. That spoiler says that ZONE tells Yusei, “I am Yusei Fudo.” What? This somewhat surprises me, somewhat doesn’t because in Yugioh 5Ds episode 144 when Aporia recounts his days in the destroyed world, he is encountered by someone who (coincidentally) looks exactly like Yusei. That turns out to be ZONE. What do you guys take out of this, is ZONE really Yusei, or is this all part of ZONE’s plan to destroy Yusei and restart the world? Or, if ZONE really is the future-version of Yusei, what spurned him to become mechanical and plan the destruction of the world?

Yugioh Monster Types Part 2

In my last post, I talked about the strongest monster from the first set of Yugioh monster types. Part two will include the monsters from the second set of Yugioh monster types. If there is any disagreement my choice or choices, feel free to comment on what you would have picked differently and why it is better than my choice. (Note: The decisions were made based solely on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck.)

Yugioh Monster Types Part 1

Though I have written about Yugioh monster types in the past, I wanted to write a post about the strongest from each of the monster types. I think that though we all talk about the strongest monsters in Yugioh, overall, I thought writing about the strongest monster per type is important because it can be a pathway for people to build their decks out of. I want to thank nader for giving me the idea. (Note: The decisions were made based on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck). Let me know if you agree or disagree with my decisions.

Strongest Yugioh Monster Card

When I wrote this post last year, Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare was in my opinion, the strongest monster in Yugioh. I still think Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare is the strongest monster in Yugioh in terms of effect and efficiency, however, it isn’t the strongest in terms of stats. 0 attack and defense points? Those are the weakest stats a monster can have. So what monster is the best in terms of high attack, high defense, and has an adequate effect? What is the strongest Yugioh monster card? In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.

In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh  monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.

Though Armityle also has 0 attack and defense points, his effect gives him 10,000 extra attack points. A lot of people would say that’s amazing, but I do not concur. That effect only applies in the controller’s turn. Because that is his only effect, Armityle could be easily beaten in your foe’s turn, no doubt about it. If you want to go as far as to waste the three Yugioh Sacred Beasts in order to summon Armityle, you better have an arsenal of traps to protect him. Plus, just summoning Armityle is difficult. You have to get all three Sacred Beasts on your field, which is nearly impossible given the fact that each of their summoning requirements are so hard to fulfill.

Dragon Master Knight is a much better monster than Armityle, however, he has his down side as well. While DMK has better stats as well as a better effect, it is much harder to summon. Some of you are going, “What? DMK is way easier to play. Just use Dragon’s Mirror or Future Fusion!” I wish summoning Dragon Master Knight was that simple. DMK is a fusion of a fusion. To play him, you first have to get Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, then fuse Black Luster Soldier. One fusion might be easy to pull off, but your opponent will not let you fuse a monster again. So many things can go wrong when you play a double-fusion monster, especially with DMK. If your foe destroys one Blue Eyes White Dragon, summoning DMK is going to be a nightmare. If your foe destroys your Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, it’s over. If you foe destroys Black Luster Soldier or even your Black Luster Ritual card, you can say goodbye to summoning DMK.

I think that Five Headed Dragon is the strongest Yugioh monster card statistically. It has 5000 attack and defense points, plus it has a decent effect. F.H.D cannot be destroyed in battle by any monster except a light attribute monster. If you have a Dragon deck and own the spell card, Dragon’s Mirror (a pretty easy to find card), F.H.D is very easy to summon. Easy to play, adequate effect, and  phenomenal stats, Five Headed Dragon is one of best beat-down monsters in Yugioh.

Top 5 Best Yu-Gi-Oh Decks

The 5th and 4th decks of the Top 5 Yugioh Decks. These are very powerful decks, Maric Structure deck is filled with burn monsters and double damage spells and traps while the Invincible Fortress Structure Deck posses many strong defensive qualities. These reasons insured their spot on the list.

All a duelist has ever wanted is a strong deck. Whether you can get one from collecting rare cards or by creating strategies with a starter, structure, or promotional decks. So In my next three posts, I will be listing the top 5 Yugioh decks someone should buy, if they want to start a strong deck. Here they are:

5.  The Marik Structure Deck

Yu-Gi-Oh Maric

The Marik Structure Deck is one of the most powerful decks in the world due to its burn property. What Marik structure allows duelists to do is to swarm many monsters to your side of the field and inflict major damage through attacks and effects. This deck’s monsters revolve around Gatekeepers so if you already have couple of Gatekeeper monsters in your stock, this deck will be even stronger. Though Marik structure deck  doesn’t utilze many defensive traps and spells, it does have plenty of cards to destroy your opponent’s, with cards like Swarm of Locusts and Malevolent Catastrophe. This deck has all of Marik’s greats as well such as Lava Golem, Revival Jam, and Helphomer.  Though it’s only available in Japan, you can still buy it through websites such as eBay and Amazon, translated in English. Though this deck lacks defense, it is a prime example of the ultimate offensive deck.

4.  The Invincible Fortress Structure Deck

yu-gi-oh-invincible-fortress1

One of the best structure decks ever made, the Invincible Fortress became well known shortly after its release due to its large variety of defensive stats and effects. Though the this deck revolves around strengthening its main card, Exodd, Master of the Guard, there are still other strategies that are in this deck. For instance, the Megarock Dragon combo is very underestimated. Megarock Dragon’s ability is that he gains attack and defense points equal to the amount of the rock monsters you reomved from play to summon him x 700. Due to the fact that 90 percent of the monsters in this deck are rock, by using cards like Card Destruction or Dark Hole, you can remove enough rock monsters from play that Megarock Dragon is, well, invincible. Besides, the combos, the card simplicity is high in this deck. There are tons of easy-to-play cards whose effects are deadly.

The 5th and 4th top decks have been revealed. On my next post, the 4th and 3rd decks will be revealed, one of them which are probably going to be a surprise to many. Stay tuned!

Yugioh 5Ds: The Third Arch, (Featuring a Contest)

This post features a card contest, and it also talks about the upcoming events of the third arc on Yugioh 5Ds. The third arc seems very cool; Yussei will be dueling a bandit turbo duelist in order to get back duel runner parts the bandit took from others. The third arc will also be the introduction to the Turbo Duel Grand Prix.

Before I start my post for today, I would like to say that Yugiohblog.com will start having contests where you can win rare cards.  If a post has a contest, then on my title I will have added (Featuring a Contest). This will be the first contest I am doing. All you guys have to do is write a one paragraph story about your favorite Yugioh card and why you like it. The winner will recieve a mint edition, secret rare, Rainbow Dark Dragon. Good luck!

I have talked about the Dark Signer arc many times in this blog, and I am sure many people have already found who the Fifth Signer due to some spoiler comments. However, on July 1, Japan will be airing the 65th episode of Yugioh 5Ds, which is also the beginning of Yugioh 5Ds’ third arc. The third arc is set 6 months after Yussei defeats Goodwin and Rudger and 6 months before the upcoming Turbo Duel Grand Prix.

Our main character Yussei, along with his friends, Rally, Blitz, Gnervin, and Crow have all moved to New Domino City. For the grand prix, Yussei, Crow, and Jack have made major modifications to there duel runners. However, there were rumors going around that there was a duelist who sabotages duel runners in order to the parts of the duel runners to his own. The rumors are confirmed when Lazar asks for the help of Yussei to stop this duelist who is known by ‘Ghost’. Lazar tells Yussei that Ghost hides in the outskirts of New Domino and uses fiend and zombie. Yussei drives off and the episode ends.

That’s all of the main things that happen with Yussei in that episode but I hope that everyone who was turned into a dark signer by revenge (Demak, Carly, Kiryu, and Misty) all come back to life. Because before they saught revenge, they were all friends of the signers. Yugio wikia says that after Ghost is defeated, the third arc will be all filler episodes leading up to the Grand Prix, which will be part of the third and fourth arcs. The third arc’s not going to be as thrilling as the Dark Signer arc, but I hope it will lead to newer monsters!

Yugioh 5Ds: Who is the Fifth Signer?

One of the biggest asked questions in Yugioh5Ds: Who is the fifth Signer?” and I think it is soooo Crow! He has beast Winged Beast monsters!

Yugioh 5Ds has always revolved around people known as Signers. There are five Signers, one of which is unknown. Rex Goodman, tries to bring the Signers together in order to summon the Crimson Dragon Each Signer has a dragon and later in the story, they fight Dark Signers, duelists who try to revive the Grand Earthbound God. Now as I looked around the web, everyone was wondering who was the final Signer? I don’t have an answer but I might be able to give a guess.

Many people thought that Rex Goodman was the fifth Signer, however that cannot be true because when Akiza and Yussei summon Black Rose Dragon and Stardust Dragon, every Signers’ arm starts glowing except Goodwin’s. Plus when he showed his metal hand to Jack, there was no mark. If Goodwin was the last Signer he would immediately have a meeting with all the other Signers.

I thought the last Signer was Sayer, the leader of the Arcadian Movement, because he was always appearing in the scenes. Plus, I thought that he put Akiza in the tournament to find the other four Signers. However if he was the fifth Signer, than Akiza and Goodwin would have known and they would both say something to him. Sayer also lost his life when he lost a shadow duel against the Dark Signer, Carly. Important people of the plot such as Signer’s don’t just die like that.

My best guess for who the fifth Signer is Crow, because he has the same personality as Yusei and he also has a powerful dragon monster in this deck. Crow also looks like Singner material. However I may be wrong but it is still a fun mystery, who really is the fifth Signer?
