Dragons of Legends Review


This week I got to review and amazing set thanks to my friends at Konami known as Dragons of Legends. Now most of these cards are newly released, but the majority of them were released in the tv show back in the days, I believe season 4 which was Waking the Dragons. Anyways this set held a lot of good solid heavy hitting cards plus a lot of supporting cards, which a lot of duelist are going crazy over for. This set has 51 cards in it, 30 super rates and 21 secret and you get 5 cards per pack.

New Forbidden/ Limited List For Yugioh

Today is the day that Konami released their new quarterly forbidden/ limited list and boy the top tier deck that won YCS was cut to size with this new list. If you haven’t guessed what deck I’m talking about, its non other than dragon rulers. I’ll go over the changes with you guys so you can get a better understanding of what went down. Lets start off with the forbidden list. No monsters were added to this list but some very powerful spells and traps were. The first is dragon ravine, now this is just one of the tech choices to run a successful dragon ruler deck but not the only one. This card allowed the player to get rid of the dragons faster so they can special them or their counterparts, with this card gone, the drgunity build is pretty much dead. Some new traps added to the list were return from the different dimension, self-destruct button, and sixth sense. Now all these choices that were added I completely agree with, all these cards were each over powered in their own way. But the one I was really happy for was for sixth sense, this card could easily be a +6 in your favor and in decks like chaos or dragon rulers some duelist don’t mind what the outcome of the role would be. Although only four cards were added to the forbidden list, I can tell you that the limited list is a lot more crueler then the forbidden.

Yu-Gi-Oh Legendary Collection Joeys World Review


I have been waiting for a new legendary collection ever since Yugis World was released last year and what a great set to follow it up with. Joeys World brings some great cards from a whole bunch of opponents that Joey had faced in the past. This set includes cards from Rex Raptor, Mai Valentine, Bandit Keith, Bones, Espa Roba, Weevil Underwood, and of course Marik Ishtar. All were very powerful duelist that pushed Joey passed his own limits to become a better duelist and ended up becoming one of the greatest of all time in my book. Like I said this set includes the key cards of his opponents and a lot of Joeys cards that have been reprinted into different rarities. So my friends from Konami sent over a set so I can tell you what I think of them.
