Ritual Beasts don't have a counter Trap, so I assume you mean Steeds. Steeds is good and probably the best part about the deck, but it was also a liability in a format where everything floated as hard as it did. It would be a lot better now though.

The Solemns are good! In Altergeists

Gaia Charger was cool but ultimately it's not what I think of when I think of Xyz abuse. Ptolemaeus into Nova into Infinity was...

*shudders*

Also, I actually disagree with Rescue Rabbit. Yeah, it was a remake of Rescue Cat, but Konami has typically made a point of introducing a Rescue monster at the start of a new "era" of Yugioh in order to make the new kind of summoning more interesting. I think the only exception to that is Rescue Cat because I believe that was printed before the Synchro era, but Rabbit was clearly designed with Xyz summoning in mind, just like Hamster was with Pendulums and Ferret was with Links, even if they were a bit more explicit about it.

If Rescue Rabbit was intended solely for XYZ, it would have had a "Materials summoned by this effect cannot be used for a Synchro Summon" which was VERY common on cards released in those first few sets, despite being easier to spam than any monsters in the Synchro Era.

Like Kagemucha Knight. What a worthless card.

Kagemusha Knight was actually used this year as a Level 3 that can be used for MX-Saber Invoker in Gouki!

I still watch the occasional YGO deck profile and stuff every now and then and over the last month I've seen a good amount of Six Samurai FTK stuff. Are they top tier now?

Are we talking about Six Sam FTK with the new Link monster that isn't out yet and hasn't impacted the OCG at all or are we talking about Rhongo Bongo.

In which case no, Six Sams by and large are outclassed by Dark Warrior.dek

I dunno if Soul Charge versus El-Shadoll Construct is a fair trade. Maybe in years past, yeah, but in the Link format I'm not so sure.

For a YGO "classic" I would certainly take it.

Why is Master Peace banned?

I'm looking at it and it looks like an easier-to-summon Apoqliphort Towers. Which was not broken when that was banned.

If there's a broken reason why this thing is banned I want to know, because it's not immediately obvious.

True Draco is a better deck than Qliphorts ever was and Master Peace can be a 3250 ATK Trap and Monster immune boss monster that also has a Quick effect pop any card.

It's insane and True Draco would be a meta deck the minute Master Peace came back.

I'm not impressed. There's nothing Master Peace doesn't have that stupid cards like the Super Quantum boss, Towers or Cosmic Blazar don't.

If the deck was the problem I think there are more problem cards than an OP boss. Towers wasn't the right hit to Qli, and while I don't know about True Draco, I suspect that Master Peace was probably not the right hit to that deck.

Probably their searchers/field spells!

True Draco is a pretty balanced deck without Master Peace, Master Peace really was the reason the deck was as good as it is.

One of the big differences between Master Peace and the other cards is that Master Peace is a lot easier to summon. Super Quantals can't exist in the Link era, Towers requires way too much set-up (and not to mention, isn't immune to the effects of Borreload or Borrelsword which is a huge downside), and Blazar isn't even the same kind of card (and not to mention, is bad because of the amount of set-up needed to summon it).

Master Peace can be used to pretty much shut down decks while relying on the decks massive consistency (True Dracos can play Card of Demise and still use Master Peace for instance; none of the other decks can do that) and the ability to use practically every floodgate in the game / tailor their decks to whatever match-up is dominant and that's why Master Peace was banned.

Worth noting that while True Draco is still a balanced deck, it is still rather good in today's meta and still grabs tops at events.

Sounds like the deck is the problem.

If it's still functioning after having its power card removed, the engine is too consistent and is just waiting for another power card to break it.

I can't think of a single archetype left that still has a consistent engine with no power payoff. Nobody would run a consistent but worthless deck, so all the hits tended to be toward consistency-boosting cards.

...

I just realized that CED was finally unbanned in the TCG. Were any other cards unbanned but didn't have major nerfs to how the cards worked?

The issue with "hitting the deck" is they already tried that. They banned Dinomight Knight and limited True King's Return and Ignis to limit the deck's consistency.

True Draco was still one of the best decks in the format, because of how powerful Master Peace was as a card and how many other, non-archetypal consistency cards they could run. You would have needed to gut the deck to keep Master Peace, and Konami knew that.

Ultimately, the truth is, it's both the card and the deck. Master Peace is very good as a card in general (especially compared to Towers, Towers is not good at all right now because of its vulnerability to Link monsters). True Draco as a deck is actually competent, whereas even with 3 Scout, Qliphort would not be a functioning deck in MR4 and Super Quantals was never a good deck.

I feel bad I didn't play against True Draco, Performapals and Zoodiacs before the Link format. I think DN going down definitely had something to do with it, but it certainly feels like I lost some bragging rights not facing the last powerful decks before armageddon.

Link format should be coming to a close pretty soon, no?

Maybe. We'll see but it would be a quick end to Link format if that was the case.

The meta now isn't too bad though. I know a few people who have said that they like this format (and it's pretty cheap to get into).

I was't really sure if this was an April Fools or not, since I haven't been playing for at least two years now.

But my gut reaction was shock, because this was the card that had the ability to negate stuff like Pot of Desires, ROTA, Fossil Dig, etc. Then he starts to talk about how Ghost Ogre is better and I started to smell deception.

For those of you who haven't heard of them, Road of the King is a really fantastic resource for information on the OCG metagame (and also have extremely pleasing looking pie charts).

I've been considering buying one YGO card just for collector's value, sort of like a prize for all the years I went to town with Stardust Stun. But what card should I get?

-the most important card, Doppelwarrior?
-the playmaker, Hyper Librarian?
-the signature boss, Stardust Dragon/Quasar/Blazar?
-other?

Dude if you don't buy Doppelwarrior I'll be so disappointed, I always thought of it as like your "signature card" or something

Nothing beats the Yugioh experience of

*pulls out notes on how to beat Orcust*

"Play Mystic Mine and attack directly with Sky Striker Ace - Hayate 7 times to win"

I feel bad for touching the card with my virtual fingers
