Several comments

I've begin to notice that people are discussing ban lists and that. I have a general comment to what people think should or shouldn't return:
  • If players think that Thousand Eyes Restrict should go to 1. Everyone would be running Formula Synchron and Instant Fusion, because we already have a Tuner that's reusable when it hits the Graveyard. (Glow-Up Bulb)
  • As for stuff that I should think that should be hit in an archetype sense (I don't really pull specifics on specific archetype cards, because it feels unnecessary)
    • Insecters - Why? Because their archetype can net you pluses like mad. It really becomes ridiculous in both the early game (first turn) or late game.
    • Wind-Ups - Why? First turn Hunter loop. They need to lower the consistency of that loop, so that it doesn't happen constantly first turn.
    • Agents - Why? Still constantly good, and as a result, it should get hit by the ban list.
  • As for single cards that I see should be banned or limited, I put in the separate section for it. Here it is:
    • Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning - Why? It's being used in nearly every single deck out there, so I'm figuring that it'll be banned on March 1st, 2012.
    • Leviair the Sea Dragon - Why? It has been used in too many combinations, that it would be hit. Also, Rank 3s are the easiest Xyzs to summon, unfortunately, so I see it being limited, if not banned, coming March 1st, 2012.
I'm just stating my views of what should be hit on the ban list. There's no way to know what'll get removed, until the ban list reveals itself.

The Polls:

Sorry that I haven't gotten a chance to comment about this yet, but here's the result of the polls that were going on until January 1st, 2011 at midnight.

First poll is "Is having Twitter updates, shown on my blog, helpful to get you the latest updates, as quickly as possible?" Five people voted Yes, and four people voted No.

Second poll is "Which Yu-gi-oh! text do you prefer?" 13 people voted for OCG text, and 11 people voted for TCG text.

Thank you all for voting.

Other comments:

I will be adding a bunch of stuff to this blog. Look forward to what I have in store for you.


  1. The thing is, most people play only 1 leviair to begin with :S

  2. @ LFN

    I can just see it either being limited or banned, similar to the case of Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier for some reason. That's all I see it being limited if not banned.

  3. I personally think that both levair and zenmaines should be limited/banned, the rank 3's have to much utility and are way to spamamble especially with tourguide around.

  4. @ Cameron

    Rank 3s are the easiest accessible Xyzs around, agreed; however, if you do not take into account the TCG exclusives, you would see some things in a different light.

    In my ban list predictions, I try to make it unbiased as I possibly can. Yeah, I know both Zenmaines and Leviair are good, but Leviair have more of an advantage, and more loop potential, which makes me think that it should be limited/banned. Zenmaines on the other hand is similar to Gachi Gachi Gantetsu, besides the obvious stats and the majority of the effect, but there's ways around it.

    I wouldn't be surprised both would be hit, but in my opinion, most likely, Leviair would be hit by this list.
