As someone who never watched the GX Series I thought I was getting pranked when a friend showed me a video of Crystal Beast Amber Mammoth's anime voice.

...I cannot believe this is real holy shit

The thing you need to know about GX is that the team got pissed when they learned that GX was getting cut for 5Ds and just. Stopped giving a professional shit.

It's for real. Again by this point, the 4Kids team working on GX stopped caring because they knew they were getting cut (which is also why Jaden dies at the end of the GX Dub but not in the complete show).

I'm a bit confused. I think the Crystal Beasts appeared early in GX since the last season was Dark King/Yubel stuff.

Did the joke accents happen because 4Kids didn't care at the end, or were they there in the first season?

Regardless, hearsay said GX was a parody anime when it was airing but I never, ever expected that it would do something like THAT.

Crystal Beasts actually show up in the same season as Dark King / Yubel stuff.

Season 1 is basically Jaden and the Sacred Beasts
Season 2 is Aster Phoenix, D-Heroes, and Sartorius.
Season 3 is Jesse and his Crystal Beasts, and Yubel.
Season 4 is D A R K N E S S

Oh, it's a new one?

Or is that the same show that was done a few years ago?

I haven't watched it yet...but I remember the last time the audience went ballistic when Yugi played POT OF GREED.

That's banned!

I hear rumours that VRAINS is ending this month.

Is the Link era finally going to be euthanized?

I have a feeling it's going to be another GX type of deal. They aren't going to euthanize a mechanic, that's for sure (it might get nerfed though).

No, Senet Switch was never killed off. It just wasn't officially enforced because all the column cards were so hilariously bad that no one in their right mind would be playing them except for rule sharks. The mechanic never actually left the game though, someone in not the right state of mind could play a column deck.

from what I've heard it seems the TCG format is pretty cancerous right now

I'm interested but not interested enough to play for myself lol, thoughts?

Whoever told you that is pretty much lying through their teeth lmfao

The TCG format is in a really good spot. There's a lot of deck diversity, the game is probably the cheapest its ever been, and the format is in a really healthy place.

EDIT: Also the big wombo-combo decks were nerfed hard by Nibiru so

see again I don't follow toooooo closely, and I don't understand/know the combo completely, but I think I got kind of caught up in they hype. there's apparently a combo available now that allows you to get out a board of:

Naturia Exterio
Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon
Dingirisu, the Orcust of the Evening Star
Hieratic Seal of the Heavenly Spheres
Orcust Crescendo
And maybe another card or something like that? And this basically negates everything and turns it into a game of Solitaire. And like stupid broken boards are possible with crazy combos but the whole point is that this is a one-card combo you could get from

Mathematcian
Draconet
Souleating Oviraptor
Fossil Dig

And I think a few more? So you could run it with a much lower chance of bricking. But I ended up seeing that apparently there's still many ways around this board, some of which are new to me (Nibiru) and some that are old that I forgot about (Sphere Mode, Effect Veiler, apparently Evenly Matched works against it?), so yeah.

Any Mathematician / Oviraptor combo deck is too frail to see much use competitively. It's not to say they haven't seen play at all, but they play through disruption very poorly. At most they top a couple of Regionals.

Nibiru and Dark Ruler No More in particular are big reasons that decks like these don't happen.

Also, there is no deck running Naturia Exterio at the moment as its basically impossible to summon.

In the combo I mentioned it was summoned via Cyber Stein which is apparently legal now? I was surprised to find that out because I thought it was one of those cards that was going to be on the banned list forever

It's in the tradition of Maxx "C" in that it punishes the quantity of summons without actually hurting the quality of those summons. Most Synchro decks specialized in summoning small monsters to work up to big ones, it's not spamming beatsticks with control effects that also begot more beatsticks.

Dark Ruler No More sounds good as a way of actually getting back into the game after facing down big boards. But Nibiru sounds arse

It's completely fine as a one-of because its mostly unsearchable and 5000 LP for a Fusion monster is really, really balanced at the moment. Cyber-Stein was banned during a time in which there was no negation and summoning a massive beatstick like Cyber End Dragon was a big deal. Currently, there isn't a Fusion Monster that really makes the risk worth it, as its essentially a once per duel effect. A Spell/Trap negator simply isn't enough anymore because most control decks can out problem monsters like Naturia Exterio. The card has only seen two tops period since it came out.

Nibiru is basically one of the most powerful cards in the game currently. It forces pretty much every single deck in the game to consider either slowing down to make the card not live (so decks like Altergeist or Sky Striker for instance) or forcing them to run some kind of negation effect (Mystical Beast Jackal King, Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon, Odd-Eyes Vortex Dragon etc). The reason why it's so good is that you can use it at any point in a combo once your opponent has summoned five monsters. Even though Guardragon Agarpain can summon Crystal Wing from the Extra Deck, you'll get Nibiru'd before you ever get the chance. It's part of why Danger! Crusadia Thunder Dragon, a deck that was among the best decks in the game, kind of dropped off recently in favor of decks like Orcusts.

Maxx "C" was good for different reasons. It gave you the resources to push through tough boards by giving you a boatload of cards, it gave you cards like Ash Blossom / Effect Veiler / Ghost Ogre to disrupt your opponent, or it just ended their turn. Fantasical Dragon Phantazmay is more of a spiritual successor to Maxx "C" than Nibiru is.

wait do cards like Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon stop you from using Nibiru? I thought that they were still eaten up as tributes

No, the tributing is part of the activated effect that Crystal VVing can negate. It's not quite like a Kaiju or Lava Golem
