This Month’s Tips

Maximise your chances: Playing with lots of powerful cards is a smart move. However, you can make the most of those cards by playing the maximum amount possible. This will allow you to draw those cards more often. Decks that feature control elements will have 3 “Solemn Judgment”, Crystal Beast decks should all contain 3 “Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus” and warrior decks can now play the unrestricted “Reinforcement of the Army” in sets of 3. Some monsters benefit from being played in multiples too! Masked Dragon and the amazing Mecha Bunny can provide a defensive wall so long as you can continue to use their effects to summon more copies from your deck.

Psychic Powers: “Thought Ruler Archfiend" is not only a Synchro monster, but one of the brand new Psychic-Type Monsters in The Duelist Genesis! With 2700 ATK, it can destroy almost any other monster in battle, and when it does you gain lifepoints equal to the destroyed monster's ATK. Those lifepoints might come in handy if your opponent tries to deal your might monster with Spell or Trap cards such as "Phoenix Wing Wind Blast" or "Brain Control", as “Thought Ruler Archfiend” has the ability to negate any Spell or Trap that targets one of your Psychic monsters by paying 1000 life points. This makes the Thought Ruler a power addition to any deck that features Synchro Monsters.

Attack of the Fish!: "Fish Depth Charge" is a brand new Trap card from "The Duelist Genesis" that no Fish deck should be without! By tributing 1 Fish monster it allows you to destroy an opponents card while drawing a card yourself. Using "Fish Depth Charge" when your opponent tries to destroy your monster with a Spell or Trap allows you to use that soon-to-be-destroyed Fish for better and wetter things! Not only can it destroy your opponent's biggest monster it can also take out their traps before they can use them. All while helping you draw your own powerful cards. To get the most out of this card try combining it with "Oyster Meister" for a free Oyster token or "Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth" who will provide you with a near endless supply of Fish.
