Can you summon Earthbound Immortal Uru? That's the only insect that stands out to me with the power and (slightly underwhelming) effects. Otherwise, yes there's a lot of slim pickings and I think you'd have to make deck adjustments to have Uru work, not that it would be worth it.

Yeah, you can, in fact, summon it by tributing Jogen, but obviously, it blows itself up if there isn't a Field spell on the field. Stealing your opponent's monsters is ok though, but I probably wouldn't run it.

At least Apex Avian is really good lol.

My deck is completely worthless now. I think the last banlist destroyed any chance it had of surviving the Link format. Short of removing the mechanic altogether I can't do anything, even with triple ROTA.

You need to summon 4 monsters to do anything, it's no longer doable with 3. That's the killer, it's why I abandoned T.G. Warwolf back in the day.

Why did they do that? That is incredibly annoying. It won't cause PSCT problems but it's completely out of step with every other card format.

Wait, why was Amaryllis banned? That seems so out of left field.

Plant FTK.

Deck would have 100% been a thing in the TCG once the Aromage link came out.

Pretty much everything unownmew liked to play has been banned in some way. All that's left is Yubel. YOU KNOW IT'S GONNA GET HIT SOMEDAY.

At least with his decks though, they're kind of sort of doable in traditional? The new mechanics and pretty much ruined me, so even with traditional (or unlimited) I'm still SOL. :<

*lights cigarette*

Unownmew? I haven't heard that name in years.

---

Also I've been doing research on what kind of deck I might like to build. Seems like there's no "Tier 0" deck at the moment and that there's a bunch of different archetypes that are all pretty competitive. I think that's a sign of a healthy metagame! Something that hasn't necessarily been present whenever I've played lol. What are your thoughts? Are there any decks that stand above the rest?

The format hasn't really fleshed out yet but ARG Hartford happened and it looked like a relatively even split between Altergeists, Knightmare Goukis, Knightmare SPYRALs, and Trickstars.

Pendulum Magicians, True Dracos, Paleo Frogs, ABCs, Dinosaurs, Lair Infernoids, and Gem-Knights are all pretty decent options as well. Don't play Trickstar though. Don't force me to hate you.

Knightmare Goukis is a lot of fun but I'd REALLY recommend watching a couple YT videos on the combos and working from there. If you don't you probably will not know what to do and henceforth suffer.

I mean it doesn't matter now because I'm going to build a Trickstar deck just to make you mad lol

(I'll probably end up building both for some variety)

That reminds me, I dueled this one guy who was using INVOKED and I Solemn Judgmented some random thing.

"wtf why u solemn xxx"
"u no I'm playing invoked rite"
"ur gonna get otk'd"

"idk wtf this is" = literally true
"ok"

He proceeds to not OTK me. I scooped because I couldn't mount any offense.

Also phoopes, I'm pretty sure we had a Tier 0, and it was called Firewall Dragon, but she died about two formats ago.

Our last Tier 0 was full-powered SPYRALs.

Invoked can't really OTK lmao, not in the TCG at least. With Meltdown Invoker it might be possible though.

Sky Striker Trickstar took YCS New Jersey, in part I imagine due to the end of time procedures.

But also because its Trickstar probably.

I just won a game because Photons can't help but overextend. Baited Infinity, used Big Eye to steal it and attached their Hyperman to him, and that was game.

It's like I teleported to 2013.

Levionia the Primordial Chaos Dragon
Level 8 DARK Dragon (Special Summon) Effect Monster
LV8 3000/0
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set.
Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 3 LIGHT and/or DARK monsters from your GY.
You can use the [(1)st] effect with this card’s name only once per turn.
(1) When this card is Special Summoned by the above method: You can activate this effect; this card cannot attack this turn, also apply one of these effects, depending on the Attribute(s) of the monsters banished to Special Summon this card.
• Only LIGHT: Special Summon 1 monster from your Graveyard in Defense Position.
• Only DARK: Randomly shuffle 1 card from your opponent’s hand into the Deck.
• Both LIGHT and DARK: Destroy up to 2 cards on the field.

They've finally done it.

They've powercrept BLS as a Chaos boss monster.

This is what it looks like when you've got a regional in a month and you need to prepare your deck.
