Randomness factor

I have been really neglecting the blog because of work and I apologize.  Can't keep a consistent crowd if you don't give consistent content.  With all that said, I will try my best to keep the pulse of the blog to talk about my take on the T.C.G. and the meta in the states.  With Toronto over, a lot of things were cleared up.

1. Are Wind-Ups still good?

2. What are the cookie cutter decks right now?
None, although Wind-Ups had a strong showing the differences between each players deck was very significant.

3. How is the banlist?
It's hard to say, Wind-Ups seems to be herp derp at times being able to abuse Shock Master and Rank 5 XYZs like no other, but it is beatable.  Unforunately if you want to beat them consistently you need to be maining Maxx "C".

4. Is there ever going to be diversity in Yu-Gi-Oh!?
Well, theres always going to be diversity in YGO is just a matter of how good are the best decks compared to everything else. Jeff Jones continues to stun people with his deck building and has no doubt started a revolution for psychics.

5. Whats the best deck right now??
I would have to say Wind-Ups because they just won Y.C.S. Toronto, but its anyone's game right now.

The T.C.G. Market (my small take)

With all the announcements popping up about reprints I thought it would be a good idea to point out a few things about YGO that people fail to realize. Reprints do not level out the playing significantly enough for budget players to compete at the level those with the means to get cards that make up the competitive tier. It acts as an imaginary buffer that lasts for a month or so until the new banlist comes out and restructures the competitive tier. Money runs the T.C.G. not the players. Thanks for stopping by this was a short blog that I put together so feel free to comment!

What to expect this weekend in North America Nationals

I sincerely believe that the best players are going to be playing Macro Rabbit to offset the popularity of Chaos Dragons and Inzektors. Wind-Ups and all its variants minus the Inzektor one are my sleeper pick. There will be people playing Burn and Countdown so have something prepared so you don't get caught with your pants down. I wish you all the best of luck and feel free to stop any member of the team for some small talk between rounds if we don't look busy.

News Fridays

As far as news goes, Rabbit is still dominating.  Epic Dawn comes out at the end of the month so if you or your store hasn't ordered it, tell them to pick up the phone and call or email Konami your questions. Expect the secondary market to fluctuate a little bit and see a dip on card prices across the board. Nationals is coming up so take the time to play test, plan, and schedule your trips.  This year is our year!!!!
