Si|entStaR - February 24, 2005 04:06 AM (GMT)
Twin Demon + Angelic + Early Buried MoBC (Take Back Twin D) == Twin D x2
Still need to play? This ban list SUX LOL
Don't say i am mad this sort stuf happen in like once in X games?
NO YOU ARE WRONG!
In fact previously my play experience was out of 3 matches , 2 of the matches opponent will "Painful Choice" then throw Chaos Soldier out, Monster Reincarnation take back Chaos Soldier , after that Living Dead Psycho Shocker LOL! I am not kidding lor u can ask around in this forum if you want ... (Yes this person is in this forum LOL)
"Nice" ban list i must said...
YuukiJudai - February 24, 2005 04:15 AM (GMT)
Finally there're new released cards in the ban list lolZ. Phoenix god and lighting vortex.
Haiz.. as usual, COH ban , then you'll see alot of ppl buying brain control lolZ. later you'll see me in the trading post :P
this ban list..quite ok la. somehow brings down the threat of chaos deck le :D
Si|entStaR - February 24, 2005 04:39 AM (GMT)
Not really with confiscation and aggresive guard gone , I am afraid chances of Chaos Soldier coming out is quite high.... and a first turn twin demon may spell a win for u .
Even fiber pod got ban so i think that it is pretty hard to recover from twin d.~~~
lightbinder - February 24, 2005 05:06 AM (GMT)
Expect to see decks running 2-3 saint mags again now that twin-d and graceful charity are back. I guess Mystic swordsman Lv2 will be used more often...

raijinili - February 24, 2005 05:16 AM (GMT)
Fiber Bar is banned! I hated that bar.
YuukiJudai - February 24, 2005 06:00 AM (GMT)
Angelic unbanned .. so now you'll see most people first turn is = angelic + pot lolx
why they ban makyura :( now my trap deck can't work le...
bahamut84 - February 24, 2005 06:07 AM (GMT)
More gayness first turn pot + angelic (throw mobc) + twin demon = no show :ph43r:
More chaos soldier ownage. GG :ph43r:

DR.Brainy - February 24, 2005 06:30 AM (GMT)
muahahahazzz!!!! i like this ban list. At least so far can't think of any things to hate it. BTW... i know who kyo is referring to. Lolz!!!
hint: look at teh avatar of forum members.
bahamut84 - February 24, 2005 07:00 AM (GMT)
This ban list far more gay than previous lol =/
You have your search engine, you have your gay draws, and you have your gay magics and you have your gay monsters...
Complete liao lol
Si|entStaR - February 24, 2005 08:22 AM (GMT)
After re-looking at the ban list, seems like this ban list saint magician abuse won't be as gd, compare to the first ban list ( I am comparing the first ban list to this ban list because they are quite similar .
Reason why saint magician won't be that popular
- Mystic Swordsman is still userable since u will only be getting 2 Mistakes (Critter,Killer Snake)
- Reinforcement is still restricted to 2~
- Still there isn't much nice stuff to take back (Magic) since Black Hole is restricted so you can't really abuse Saint Magician to take back Black Hole x N and repeat and rinse to "Clear Field" , Vortex have a cost u know ^^ so it isn't tat effective.
Can't really see current metagame, all i can said is that there really isn't much reason not to play Chaos , WHY?
Simply both confiscation and aggresive guard was ban so there is no way to discard him from the hand, once U DRAW THAT IT, hes gonna hit the field soon.
I guess we will be seeing more of DDV now , 1 of the few cards that enable to look at your opponent hand ... and critter is unban now.
apple-juicy - February 24, 2005 08:28 AM (GMT)
A bit sad to say that Twin Demon is gonna be abused real badly now with saint mags and MOBC(1 for 2 is realli advantageous to yr side though). I was expecting to Konami to leave either Confiscation or Forceful Sentry as the only hand-d card and ban Pot Of Greed oso. But o well :blink: , everythin seems quite fine as sixth sense is banned.
The new restrict to ones and twos are oso a great job done by konami. The onli thin which puzzles me this time is why Executioner Makyura is in the ban list????
YuukiJudai - February 24, 2005 08:32 AM (GMT)
ya..y ban makyura ? it's semi restricted and now it gone all the way to being banned?!
it's not in anyway broken mah. just a monster version of pharoah's shrine, with the exception that it has to be in graveyard.
:'( still upset bout my trap deck :'(
bahamut84 - February 24, 2005 08:35 AM (GMT)
Yah they might as well ban exchange of life and death lol
Si|entStaR - February 24, 2005 08:47 AM (GMT)
Ban le their phoniex feather cannot sell =X
Akira - February 24, 2005 09:17 AM (GMT)
well, at least scientist is gone. seems like they decide to get rid of the root instead of just weakening it (by restricting reasoning & last will). maybe it's because of that scientist deck as said by kyo, though he refused to disclose the content of the deck. i'm still curious about that deck..
Kira - February 24, 2005 09:49 AM (GMT)
arhh...this is much more gayer than the last ban list jus like Bahamut said..i guess looks like DDV is a some how must to play in deck...see hand..and drop high monsters...so nice...woo hoo :ph43r:
Eriol - February 24, 2005 10:12 AM (GMT)
.. Chaos Soldier survived.. lol
scrabbleking - February 24, 2005 10:15 AM (GMT)
Oh... Marshmellon restricted to 1??? Oh no... There goes my idea of a new deck...
Eriol - February 24, 2005 10:24 AM (GMT)
lol.. i just wanna comment on that.. hehe
horizon phoenix - February 24, 2005 10:24 AM (GMT)
It seems Konami wants to give a lot of power to undead...bringing back Mirror Force and semi restricting Vamp Lord...

scrabbleking - February 24, 2005 10:32 AM (GMT)
Yarh... Me too... Angelic + Pot = Drawing power....
horizon phoenix - February 24, 2005 11:12 AM (GMT)
Well, we lost mirage, 6th sense and painful choice and got back angelic...ok trade i guess. Now duels will be slowed dwon more...
scrabbleking - February 24, 2005 11:16 AM (GMT)
Yarh... Slowed down quite abit...
Kira - February 24, 2005 12:30 PM (GMT)
there are also different ways to boost hand i guess... ;)
Hikaru - February 24, 2005 02:30 PM (GMT)
twin demon and angelic donation are back... LOL
twin demon x2. well done, konami... <_<
LOL... need to buy V-lord.
bring 1 deck box less to go out, no fusion. :lol:
Sora - February 24, 2005 02:52 PM (GMT)
hmmm.....still as imbalance.....at least six sense is being banned! yeah!!...can come back and play le.... :)
horizon phoenix - February 24, 2005 03:40 PM (GMT)
Frankly speaking, Konami has, imo, screwed up the ban list this time round. We'll just end up with more cookie cutter decks with this ban list.
Ah well, we'll see how things turn out at tournaments...
benjamin - February 24, 2005 03:41 PM (GMT)
so happy just found my vampire lord 2 day ago that i lost for 1 year and the next day i found out the vampire lord can put 2 so shuang.
Si|entStaR - February 24, 2005 03:44 PM (GMT)
New Metagame Breakdown...
Phoniex is pretty much not playable anymore , ppl can just use assilant or dwg to remove phoniex from the game and there goes your whole deck...
Pretty obvious Undead got a major beef with critter out of the ban list,and the only userable "Hand Sight Seeing" card is DDV which can be combo with Critter and Soul banisher spirit, + the restricting of Vampire Lord to 2 , it will be pretty obvious that Undead deck will be very popular for this current ban list .
As i had previously said there is no reason not to play Chaos Soldier anymore just splash it into any of your theme deck and u got a power house , the best warrior in the game! Or perharp the best monster in yugioh.
Quad Emperor + Monster Gate
All i can said that with triple brain wash this might be quite playable and monster gate can combo with it too , which is pretty bad, bug of the current ban list?
benjamin - February 24, 2005 03:48 PM (GMT)
Ever since hearing about the rumours quickly went to form undead as it has a least affacted by the ban list.
horizon phoenix - February 24, 2005 03:58 PM (GMT)
Yeah, my prediction is that Chaos and Undead will be the new cookie cutter decks. Konami is obviously trying too hard to promote undead. Undead is the only playable deck that can include both Viruses, unparalleled recursion abilities...damn Konami to hell for creating the next cookie cutter, and for not thinking twice before making the new list.
That being said, time to add in all the broken cards.
*goes off to search for mirror force, angelic and twin d*
Wataru - February 24, 2005 05:08 PM (GMT)
at least pple can choose between chaos and undead deck now... Btw, wats the use of having card of insanity and brain control when Jar of greed and COH is not ban. Haha... I thought that they are going to replace the cards.
Khrice - February 24, 2005 05:10 PM (GMT)
Good List. (Except for "Mischievous Twin Demons"...)
Khrice - February 25, 2005 07:15 AM (GMT)
"Upstart Goblin" is now 2-restricted.
And "Chaos Pod" is released to 3.
Kira - February 25, 2005 03:03 PM (GMT)
umm..no fusion..i guess people will start to sell their fusions..?..i think can buy liao beocs of the advantage of magical scientist being banned...
