Yugioh Dark Monsters – Strongest Attribute

I think dark yugioh monsters are the strongest in Yugioh. Most of the strong yugioh cards have dark attributes such as Dark Armed Dragon.

Yugioh Dark GrepherYesterday, I received a comment  asking me what the best monster attribute in Yugioh was. Though I replied with Dark attribute monsters are the best, every type of attribute has its own characteristics. Light attribute monsters are usually fairies and they mostly have healing effects. Earth attribute monsters are the most common, water attribute monsters rely heavily on field spells, etc… However I feel that  it is easier to create startegies with dark attribute monsters.

Ninja Deck – Strong Yugioh Archetype

Ninjas are strong Yugioh monsters and with the release of Number 12: Crimson Shadow Armor Ninja in the Order of Chaos, they have become even stronger.

Armor Ninjutsu of Armed RustYugioh 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 “Ninja Deck – Strong Yugioh Archetype”

Yugioh Zexal Weapon Monsters

Zexal Weapons are a new support for Yuma’s ace monster, the powerful C39: Utopia Ray. I like the Zexal Weapons as they really improve Yuma’s game and give duelists reasons to fear C39: Utopia Ray

Yugioh Zexal WeaponsIf you haven’t had enough of Yuma and his clutch C39: Utopia Ray, then this will excite you: Konami is creating Zexal Weapon Phoenix Bow. Zexal Weapons are monsters that aid C39 Utopia by giving it stat boosts. In the anime, they are summoned by achieving ZEXAL, but because that is not humanely possible, Konami just created cards.

Zexal Weapon Phoenix Bow will not be the first Zexal Weapon, it will be the second, behind Zexal Weapon Unicorn Spear. ZW Unicorn Spear has 1900 attack points and can be equipped to C39: Utopia Ray. By doing so, it gives Utopia Ray a 1900 attack point boost and the ability to inflict piercing damage. Continue reading “Yugioh Zexal Weapon Monsters”

Galactic Overlord – New Yugioh Booster Pack

The upcoming Yugioh booster pack, Galactic Overlord, seems to be a very good pack. With more support for monsters such as Inzektors, as well as a new monsters such as Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon, this pack is a must-buy.

Yugioh Neo Galaxy Eyes Photon DragonIn a matter of two weeks, Konami will be releasing Galactic Overlord, the newest addition to Yugioh’s plethora of booster packs. While Galactic Overlord doesn’t have overpowered monsters (Rescue Rabbit, any one?) like its predecessor, Order of Chaos, it is still a pack to look out for. With some new archetypes and powerful Xyz monsters, Galactic Overlord seems to be a pretty good pack. Here are three things that I am really looking forward to from Galactic Overlord: Continue reading “Galactic Overlord – New Yugioh Booster Pack”

Yugioh Agent Monsters – Bringing Back Fairies to the Limelight

Introducing the Yugioh Agent deck, another deck that has climbed to tier one. An agent deck utilizes a lot of fairy monsters, aided with the effect of The Sanctuary in the Sky.

Yugioh Agent of Creation VenusA few posts ago, I talked about Dark World monsters and their tremendous power. Dark Worlds have become a tier one archetype thanks to the addition of the Grapha, Dragon of the Dark World as well as other support cards. However, as you may have heard the saying, “when there is darkness, there is light.” Introducing, the Yugioh Agent deck, another deck that has climbed to tier one. An agent deck utilizes a lot of fairy monsters, aided with the effect of The Sanctuary in the Sky. Similar to how Dark World decks revolve around Grapha, Agent decks revolve around a monster known as Master Hyperion, who is possibly the strongest fairy monster in Yugioh. Continue reading “Yugioh Agent Monsters – Bringing Back Fairies to the Limelight”

The Strongest Xyz Monster in Yugioh – Number 16: Shock Master

Shock Master is a really powerful monster, with a great effect and phenomenal stats. It is not only the strongest Number, but the strongest Xyz monster in Yugioh as well.

Yugioh Number 16: Shock MasterShock Master is truly a terror. Have three of those on your side of the field and it is virtually an automatic win. Granted, Shock Master isn’t the easiest monster to summon as it requires three level four monsters. However, its effect makes up for it. With 2300 attack and 1600 defense points, it can negate players from activating a card type (spell, monster, trap) for a cost of one material monster. You can use it to shut your opponent’s traps and destroy them with a ruthless offense.

Shock Master with Evolzar Laggia is an iron wall of defense, since both monsters can shut down your opponent’s cards. Swarming Shock Master is not that difficult, especially with the overpowered Rescue Rabbit. Rescue Rabbit would allow you to swarm two level four monsters, and assuming you already have one in the field, you can Xyz summon Shock Master! Though it won’t be for long, Rescue Rabbit is currently unlimited so you can use this combo three times!

Top 10 Best Xyz Monsters in Yugioh Part 2

This is part two of my top 10 xyz monsters in Yugioh list. There can be an argument as to which monster deserves the number two spot: Laggia or Leviair. However, I decided to go with Laggia. What are your thoughts?

Yugioh Steelswarm Roach 5. Steelswarm Roach

I had talked about Steelswarm monsters in my article on Generation Force. While they haven’t become the top tier archetype I thought they would be at this point, they are still a strong archetype and have some fearsome monsters such as Steelswarm Roach. With 1900 attack and zero defense points, Roach’s stats do not particularly stand out. However, it has got a menacing effect: whenever a level five or greater monster would be special summoned, you can remove one material monster (two in total, level four) to negate the summoning. This can save your neck if your opponent synchro summons monsters like Brionac or Stardust Dragon. Steelswarm Roach should be and is, a staple in anti-synchro decks. The best part about Roach is that it is splashable in almost any deck since it has no requirements for its material monsters. Continue reading “Top 10 Best Xyz Monsters in Yugioh Part 2”

Top 10 Best Xyz Monsters in Yugioh Part 1

There a lot of strong Xyz monsters in Yugioh now, such as Dark Mist or Adreus. Here is part one of my list of top 10 Xyz monsters in Yugioh.

My impression of Yugioh Zexal has improved a lot since I first wrote about it. Back then, I felt a majority of the Xyz monsters were weak, especially Leviathan Dragon (how I just hate that card)! However, while I feel the show is still stupid, Yugioh Zexal monsters have gotten much better. Even though synchro monsters are still more popular, many duelists have incorporated Xyz monsters into their decks. Here is part one of the top 10 strongest Xyz monsters in Yugioh. (Note: these are only TCG cards, so monsters such as Marine Biting Dragon will not be included).

Yugioh Gachi Gachi Gantetsu10. Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

What’s not to love about Gachi Gachi Gantetsu? For one, it has probably got one of the coolest and most humorous names in Yugioh. In addition, it is a Xyz monster that most duelists should include in their decks, especially if they run Agents. With just 500 attack points and 1800 defense points, Gachi Gachi has mediocre stats, but it is its effect that can make a difference in a duel. Gachi Gachi (which requires two level two material monsters) increases the attack and defense of your monsters by 200 times the amount of the material monsters attached to it. Thus, it can increase your monsters’ stats by a maximum of 400 points. It is frustrating playing against Gachi Gachi so if your opponent destroys it, you can remove a material monster to negate its destruction! Not bad, eh? It works wonderfully in an Agent deck because it gives monsters a needed increase in stats and is so easy to play thanks to Mystic Shine Ball.

Number 32: Marine Biting Dragon – Strong Xyz Monster

Number 39: Utopia may be the marquee monster in Yugioh Zexal, but it doesn’t deserve to be. Marine Biting Dragon are so much stronger and it is fitting that it is the marquee monster of Yuma’s rival, Shark.

I will be honest, Number 39: Utopia is one of my least favorite Yugioh cards. For one, despite being the marquee monster of the Yugioh Zexal franchise, it is pretty weak. Konami must have realized this because they improved Utopia by creating Number C39: Utopia Ray, but even Utopia Ray is not that amazing. There are so many other Xyz monsters that are better than Utopia. Even if you just look at rank four Xyz monsters, there are loads of monsters superior to Utopia, one of them being Number 32: Marine Biting Dragon. With great stats and an awesome effect, I wonder why Marine Biting Dragon isn’t Zexal’s marquee monster, as it is one of the strongest monsters in the show! Continue reading “Number 32: Marine Biting Dragon – Strong Xyz Monster”

Slifer the Sky Dragon – My Favorite Egyptian God Card

Slifer the Sky Dragon is the strongest Egyptian God card, but it still is not an official Yu-Gi-Oh card! Hopefully that will change, since Slifer is a really strong Yugioh card!

My favorite Egyptian God card was Slifer the Sky Dragon, because it was Yugi’s ace monster. I loved how thunderbolts would always pop up and epic music would always start playing when Slifer came on the field. Yet, despite its popularity, Slifer is the only Egyptian God card that has not been made into an official Yugioh card! Obelisk the Tormentor was the first one created, then came Winged Dragon of Ra, but Konami has still not made a Slifer card. I wanted to hear people’s opinions on what Slifer’s effect and stats would be if it was a real card. Continue reading “Slifer the Sky Dragon – My Favorite Egyptian God Card”
