Yu-Gi-Oh/Expert Profile


I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.

2017-02-20 Dragoncaller Magician ruling with XYZ monsters:

Hi Brian,    The Effect of "Dragoncaller Magician" grants an effect to the monster you use it to summon, but that effect isn't tied to Dragoncaller in any way once the summon is complete.  So even if you

2017-02-17 I dont like the graveyard:

So before we go ahead with this there are a few things to cover:    Firstly, while Necrovalley is a mild irritation to Zoodiac, it's not doing anything on its own - the only part of the Zoodiac combo that

2017-02-13 Crystal Beast Help:

The issue with Crystal Beast competing with current decks, as I'm sure you're aware, is that it's from a very different time - when Crystal Beast was first released the average turn contained 1-2 Special

2017-02-12 Dark Magician post RATE:

Realistically the Dark Magician core doesn't change with the format, only the specific traps that you play do.  I'd probably go with something like this:    3 Dark Magician  3 Magician's Rod  2 Magician

2017-02-11 Lightsworn help please:

The main issue here is that you're playing far too many cards with Graveyard effects - when you open hands full of these you just lose the game.  Playing Lightsworn Without Minerva is a pretty tough ask
