For discussion about the various anime/manga series, the TCG/OCG and all other things Yu-Gi-Oh.

Example talking points;

  • Favourite characters
  • Decks you've used/want to use
  • Favourite cards
  • General strategy talk, etc...

YA HOO!

I've only watched the first anime and Yu Gi Oh GX, so I don't really know many of the characters from the other series. I loves me some Seto Kaiba though, and Marik was pretty cool.

As for cards, I keep it very simple, I currently run a Zombie Swarm Deck as well as a Mausoleum of the Emperor beat down, a Spellcaster/spell counter and my favorite, a Warrior deck. NO SYNCHROS! I refuse to use them.

Well, I'm currently using a Galaxy rank 8 deck. Works pretty nice, I can just about get anything I want on the first turn lol.

@the_stegman: 5D's is terrific. Watch it. Why not a fan of the Synchros?

I've been meaning to watch 5Ds, just haven't gotten around to it. And I just don't like Synchros, many of them feel cheap and OP'ed.

@the_legendary_supersaiyan_hulk: Awesome. I haven't had much play with the newer stuff, unfortunately. I'm the only person I know who plays and the closest tournament location is an hour away lol

I was initially hesitant about the Xyz stuff, but I really like the new dynamic, actually.

@the_stegman: Most of the ridiculously powerful ones (like Trishula) have thankfully been banned. Generally only have to put up with them for a year. Konami releases them, everyone buys them, they ban them a year later lol

@the_legendary_supersaiyan_hulk: It's good and bad. Not going to tournaments means not getting beaten at them lol

How would you get Yubel out? O_o

@the_legendary_supersaiyan_hulk: Very true, but that requires me to go out and collect the cards I need >_< Plus, since I have very few people to play with, it's lowered my ambition. In high school, I played like crazy though. Good times, goooooood times.

@the_legendary_supersaiyan_hulk: I know! I think I'll have to get Saga of the BEWD just on general awesomeness alone lol Dark Magician has more support cards than the Blue-Eyes, a structure deck for him is almost a requirement.

Always love the original cast. <3 Watched the whole entire thing of that before GX. Gave that a try but couldn't get used to it. So glad Duke Devlin was a major supporting cast too. He rocks. =D

I used to buy packs of Yu-Gi-Oh trading cards at Wal-Mart in hopes to get Dark Magician Girl but never got her. Still have the deck but it's mostly of magic and trap cards.

As a kid my friends and I would show our cards off on the school bus. The good old days.

Yeah this was at my school too along with Pokemon cards. I didn't collect Pokemon cards but I do play the games and watched the anime (I still check it out whenever Ash goes to new region). Usually once the bus arrived at the school we'd just hide everything in our backpacks until we got on again.

Hehe! xD I think my older brother has a binder of Pokemon cards. I should get em from him since he's not into the series. Hoping to get 3DS for the next Pokemon gen. As for Yu-Gi-Oh I probably will look into the current anime since the Tron family in that seems kinda cool. =D Would love to see a live action Yu-Gi-Oh movie though. Kaiba's the boss! ^__^

5Ds had potential to surpass the original. Fortune Cup/Dark Signer were on par with DK/Battle City. Arc Cradle should've been the DOMA of 5Ds, and than they could've finished the series with their own version of Millennium World.

#31 Edited by Skyfire (728 posts) - - Show Bio

Lightsworn will always be my favourite deck type. Just so versatile and Judgement Dragon was a beast.

However Dark Armed Dragon is probably my favourite card ever. When it came out back in 2008 I really wanted to build a deck around it, but alas my financial situation at the time forbade it.

As for the show, the original series will always be best . Except for that damned virtual world story smack bang in the middle of the battle city I enjoyed all of it.

I remember getting these really rare cards that were in Japanese, think I traded them for some not as good cards because I was dumb and bad at trading.

Joey is the best character FYI.

I haven't played since 7th grade. I was undefeated for the last few months of my lunch table "career". My secret: no cards under 1900 atk and four Blue-Eyes (; My friend (who was the best at the lunch table) played professionally at the moment.

*leans on cane* Back in my day, the cards were bettah! Took skill to play! No Synchros, no Side Decks, just you and the Heart of the Cards! Kidz these days have it easy! They are no longer in touch with their Duel Spirits!

@dccomicsrule2011: Judai got too much screentime to be a good main character.

I disagree,I loved Judai's progression through the entire series and lets not act like the other Yu-Gi-Oh! heroes did not hog up the of the spot light,besides Kaiba an Jounouchi,the rest of the cast had little screen time. And it's not like the GX cast got no screen time,in season 4 Jun,Asuka,and Sho each got 2 episodes towards development and Judai was shown very little in those 6 episodes. Getting a alot of screen time does not make him a bad character.....at all. But whatever this is all opinion based,that being said do you watch Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal?

It's not necessarily screen time. It's the fact Jaden was the only character who actually had importance. At least in the original, Tea, Duke, Tristna, & Serenity were still tied into the plot.

And no, I don't watch Zexal. After 5Ds ended, I was done.

Tell me how the other characters did not have importance? When Judai turned into the Supreme King his freinds were the one who snapped him out of it and beat him. When Judai basically gave up vs Cobra his friends talking him back into it. Yubel's master plan worked in season 3 because of Johan aka Judai's friend. I'm sorry but I fail to see how they are "unimportant" as you say, I could go on and on about there importance to the plot.

And no, I don't watch Zexal. After 5Ds ended, I was done.

Okay then.

@decoy_elite: Breaks my heart with the flashbacks between him and Serenity and how she motivated him through it all. Especially since that reminds me a lot of my brothers and I. Tristan, Tea and Duke I like as well but, Joey would have to be my favorite with Tea being the second.

#48 Edited by Decoy Elite (30041 posts) - - Show Bio

@dccomicsrule2011: It's pretty fun. You move the cards on a board it has the deck leader system. So you can end up chasing around deck leaders while your opponent desperately flings cards around trying to summon something strong enough to counter. Oh and the land advantages and disadvantages have a far greater impact on the game. (A certain duelest is one of the hardest opponents because he hides his deck leader in Toon World where most cards get a huge debuff).

So...uh...basically I like it a lot.
