The Dragon Rulers – Taking Over Yugioh!

The Dragon Ruler archetype is becoming big in Yugioh! They have winning some big tournaments recently and have risen in popularity. We’ll look at the playing style of this archetype and why they are so powerful.

I recently wrote a post about the latest Yugioh booster pack, Lord of the Tachyon, and mentioned that it introduced a new archetype – Dragon Ruler. The Dragon Ruler monsters (also called Incarnate Dragon) are a very cool group of dragon type monsters that have become immensely popular in a short period of time. Though it is their ability to create deadly combos that is attributed to their rise, Dragon Ruler monsters are just awesome cards in general.

A New Yugioh Booster Pack – Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy

The most recent booster pack in Yugioh, Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy, is a really strong booster pack that I would recommend any duelist to purchase. We’ll look at some features that make it a good pack to buy.

Yugioh Lord of the Tachyon GalaxyEven the though the show has been fairly disappointing, the past few Yugioh Zexal booster packs have not failed to impress. Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy is no different. It debuts two new archetypes, the Battlin’ Boxer and Dragon Ruler archetypes, the latter of which has been incredibly popular and already has won some Asian tournaments. Lots of older popular archetypes are developed in this booster pack as well, with four more new monsters being released for my favorite Zexal archetype, Fire-Fist. Finally, the title monster of Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy is awesome too! Tachyon Galaxy is a must-get booster pack and is one of the best released in the Zexal series!

The Atlantean Archetype – The Return of the Water Archetype!

With the Atlantean archetype, Yugioh’s water attribute is making a comeback!

Poseidra, the Atlantean DragonThese days water monsters have become totally neglected. With the exception of the nifty Mermail archetype, there has been a significant hole in notable water-oriented archetypes. A majority of archetypes have focused on dark, light, and earth archetypes. I miss the old days where archetypes were equally represented, when you would actually see a variety of archetypes in play. However, I may not have to wait long for water archetypes to return to prominence. With the Mermail monsters already on the rise, Konami seems to be focusing another archetype as well: the Atlantean archetype. Continue reading “The Atlantean Archetype – The Return of the Water Archetype!”

Fire Fist Archetype – Future of Yugioh

The Fire Fist monsters have become one of the most popular archetypes in Yugioh! But for good reason – they are super powerful. Could Fire Fists be the future of Yugioh?

Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - SnakeYugioh has seen several allmighty archetypes since its inception. From the old school Toon archetype, to the Hero archetype, to the Gladiator Beasts, to the Six Samurai, etc… Each season of Yugioh has introduced Tier 0 archetypes, those that are of the cream of the crop, and now another one will join the list – the Fire Fist archetype. Despite being recently released in the Cosmo Blazer booster pack, the Fire Fist monsters have quickly become one of the most popular archetypes in Yugioh, and for good reason.  Continue reading “Fire Fist Archetype – Future of Yugioh”

Yugioh Rise of the New Number

Yugioh DuelistsI have  been a huge fan of Yugioh World Championship games ever since it was released for the Nintendo DS. I was enthralled by Stardust Accelerator when it was released in 2009. I was awed with its duel-runner capabilities and held the game series with high regard. With a awesome storyline and phenomenal gameplay, last year’s Over the Nexus increased my liking for the World Championship series. Though it hasn’t been released yet, I have high expectations of the upcoming 2012 World Championship game, Beginning the New Number. Continue reading “Yugioh Rise of the New Number”

Mermail Archetype – More Mermaids in Yugioh

There have actually been several mermaid cards in Yugioh and they have been quite powerful. However, the Mermail archetypes are still a very unique creation and have the power to back up their cool graphics.

Yugioh Mermail AbyssmegaloThere have actually been several mermaid cards in Yugioh and they have been quite powerful. Who can forget Cure Mermaid, the cute critter with a solid 1500 attack and an ability that allowed its user to gain 800 life points every Standby Phase. With the recent release of Rising Abyss, mermaid cards are back in the form of the Mermail archetype. Mermail monsters aren’t only a group of mermaid monsters, but include sea monsters as well. They have brought back water-oriented monsters into prominence with their abilities.  Continue reading “Mermail Archetype – More Mermaids in Yugioh”

Heraldic Beasts – New, yet Strong, Yugioh Archetype

Heraldic Beasts are going to be some of the most insane monsters in Yugioh! They have a cool ability to power Xyz monsters and their ace, Number 8: Heraldic King Genome is very powerful!

Yugioh Heraldic BeastsThere is hot anticipation for the Abyss Rising booster pack that is being released to the TCG in about two weeks. While the booster pack’s cover monster, Number C32: Chaos Drake Weiss, is hogging most of the fame, Abyss Rising has a lot of bright spots. One, for instance, is the debut of the Heraldic Beast archetype, the powerful monsters owned by Vetrix in the anime. The Heraldic Beasts have an incredibly unique playing style and are one of the most interesting monsters in Yugioh.  Continue reading “Heraldic Beasts – New, yet Strong, Yugioh Archetype”

Return of the Duelist – Best Booster Pack in Yugioh Zexal

Return of the Duelist is one of the strongest booster packs ever introduced in Yugioh, as it features the strongest card of the Zexal series: Chronomaly Atlandis!

Return of the DuelistSo far, under Yugioh Zexal’s one year run, there have been some good booster packs. While Photon Shockwave was decent (Generation Force was a god awful pack), the last two packs, Order of Chaos and Galactic Overlord, have contained some really great cards. However, none of these packs compare to Return of the Duelsit, which easily tops all of the booster packs that have been released in Zexal. There is a simple reason: it features one of the coolest monsters of all time – Number 6: Chronomaly Atlandis! Continue reading “Return of the Duelist – Best Booster Pack in Yugioh Zexal”

Yugioh Limited Edition Packs

Limited Edition booster packs have contained a lot of super cool and powerful monsters.

Limited Edition Packs are one of the coolest types of packs in Yugioh. Most of them contain about five cards, but they stress quality over quantity. In fact, Limited Edition Packs have contained some of the strongest cards in Yugioh. I have used a lot of these monsters in my decks and often see other duelists use them as well. I will talk about a few of the most valuable cards that one can find in Limited Edition Packs.  Continue reading “Yugioh Limited Edition Packs”

Yugioh Ninja Monsters – Overlooked Archetype

Ninja monsters are really powerful. However, they are extremely overlooked, as they are not part of the meta-game.

Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armer NinjaYugioh ninja monsters have been out for quite a while. In  fact, one of the first ninja monsters, Strike Ninja, was considered so lethal that it had to be banned. One of the first Yugioh cards ever made was a ninja, Armed Ninja (he was a nuisance to duel against ‘back in the day’). A few other ninja monsters came out, but ninjas were not very popular until the release of Order of Chaos. The booster pack has released many new types of ninja monsters and has cemented ninjas as one of the more popular archetypes in Yugioh. Continue reading “Yugioh Ninja Monsters – Overlooked Archetype”
