Card of the Month

I thought that Dark Creator would win since it appeared to be the more popular card however it placed last among the three. The Card of the Month: August is Mist Wurm! I’m pretty surprised it won, because it has a fairly simple effect. Well, this marks the last Card of the ___ Post and starting in a few days will be the even more fun Yugioh Monster Comparisons!

Cards Everyone Should Have In a Deck

There are some cards in Yugioh that have to be, and would benefit the user, if they were their deck. Obviously, that list wouldn’t include many monsters because people usually have theme decks and different type of monsters would just disrupt their dueling style. Still, the road to victory is usually achieved by having a balanced deck as well as a diverse one. So here are some cards that you MUST have in a deck (Note: there are five cards per section):

Creating a Good Yugioh Deck

Creating a Yugioh deck is simple. The basic rule of making a Yugioh deck is simple: keep your Yugioh deck balanced. This post teaches beginners and some veteran duelists the basic steps on how to make a good Yugioh deck.

While I was searching for new topics for my blog, I found that many duelists need help to make a new Yugioh deck. Well, making a Yugioh deck is simple, you just have to have balance in your cards. Your Yugioh deck will lose in a duel if you have too many spell cards, traps, monsters, and especially high level monsters. Here’s a trick I used to make a good Yugioh deck when I was a kid.

I loved (still do) to play Yugioh when I was a kid. I would play Yugioh with all my friends! So by dueling with them and building decks with them, I learned a good trick to use when making your Yugioh deck. Now, many of you might know/remember this trick, so it will be a mind refresher.

  1. When you’re make your Yugioh deck, separate all of your traps, spells, monsters, and high level monsters (level five+, includes ritual, fusion, and synchro) into three different piles.
  2. Now choose your deck theme (read here for a basic list).
  3. Based on your theme, select traps and spells that would contribute to the theme.
  4. Now, based on your theme you selected, as well as the traps and spells you chose, get monsters that would be strongly assisted by the spells and traps, and contribute to the theme. For example, if the theme for my Yugioh deck is to use weak monsters with great effects and use equip cards to raise their attack/defense points, one monster I would select for my deck is Maha Vailo.
  5. Finally, try out your Yugioh deck in a duel and see if it’s good. If you need to make changes in an area of your deck, repeat the previous steps and keep dueling until you are completely satisfied with your deck.

Now I know that advanced duelists already have special tactics on making a Yugioh deck, but for beginners, this is the basic steps you must take when you are creating your Yugioh deck.
