That got me curious about the upcoming VRAINS replacement and oh my,



That looks pretty terrible, in the ZeXal mold.

Konami might release a banlist while there are no official events going on because Jet Synchro and Block Dragon are incredibly broken. Maybe they might hit Halqifibrax or Auroradon instead, but I'm not convinced.

Uh, you don't mean Jet Synchron? Block Dragon doesn't look very good, I don't see what's threatening about it.

Also, there's no way they'll hit Needlefiber, not after waiting so long to release it.

Block Dragon is a Dragon Ruler which floats harder (into multiple cards) and has a non-OPT summoning condition. It's literally insane. Like even in more generic decks Block Dragon floats into double Gigantes

I've never seen the monster Link Cross before. It must be a new release, and that card itself is obviously quite broken as I can easily see a Junk Speeder play using that same setup. Hitting that and Needlefiber would nip this in the bud.

Hitting Jet Synchron is a scapegoat hit. It wouldn't affect me at this point since I'm not using it anymore (often), but it would be annoying to see yet another one of my few deck relevant cards hit.

Jet Synchron is the scapegoat hit, but it's also not the card moving any product.

After the ban to Firewall Dragon, I don't believe in any of the pseudo-economic arguments against banning specific cards.

I know that KOA was well aware of Needlefiber's potential and held off releasing it until after the Link era was over. Unless it's a Secret Rare or something, I don't think it represents that much of a product push, especially since Synchrons seem to get some kind of support in every major YGO release.

Firewall was banned after numerous scapegoat hits, including ones that hurt decks that were barely viable (ABC). It also came after mass outcry from players, for whatever that is worth.

Needlefiber and Linkross are very new cards (Duel Overload and the currently EU only Eternity Code) and we're currently in the middle of a pandemic where Konami's product sales are lower than normal, it's not that odd to think they might hit Jet Synchron because of it.

(Jet Synchron being a one-card Needlefiber is also part of the reason this combo exists.)

nothing to contribute really, just reminding you that whenever someone says the words Dragon Ruler I am (special) summoned to this thread
