  1. http://www.artofwarsuntzu.com/Art%20of%20War%20PDF.pdf < PDF for it if you've never heard of it.   The Art of War is one of the most famous military manuals of all time, still used today, and written by the genius Taoist and General named Sun Tzu.   It's basically a list of ideas for war, and they're easily applyable to a lot of competitive scenarios, such as yugioh.   Choice phrases for yugioh;   Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.   Standing on the defensive indicates insufficient strength; attacking, a superabundance of strength.   When invading hostile territory, the general principle is, that penetrating deeply brings cohesion; penetrating but a short way means dispersion.   A lot of them apply to the aspects of playing conservatively/aggro in yugioh, which is a playstyle difference that, in my opinion, primarily defines competitive yugioh.   Thoughts? Some discussion about these ideas would be pretty neato.
  2. Goats 2k14

    I really love mask of darkness, lol. I tried to run it in some anti meta variants last format, to no effect. The art was just so coolio.
  3. Never Gonna Give You Up

      I suppose I'll keep the Drain sided then. Kinda bummed that I can't use it's destruction eff then flip Drain, but now that I understand the ruling I see why I can't. W/e
  4. Powerless

      Who the fuck shat on your poptart?
  5. Question for Patrick Hoban

      negged for complete bullshit.    Football Sunday is essentially a nationwide holiday, the World Series gets so much less hype.    I'm not calling either sport worse, calm yourself. Lol.
  6. Question for Patrick Hoban

    Because technically Football is a more competitively rewarding game than Baseball in terms of paycheck/hype over championship event, yet people play Baseball.
  7. X-Sabers

    I used to be really into Sabers during the cat format, but then again, so was everyone.   I think siding Saber Holes might be an interesting idea, if you don't wanna main them. Either way though, +rep. I like this build.
  8. Cydras

    The deck has access to a lot of easy OTK's, it's only real issue is that this is a backrow format.
  9. Never Gonna Give You Up

        that's only if skill drain isn't already face-up   Any further confirmation on this? 
  10. Shit you hate at Locals.

  11. Not necessarily shit people say, but just in general shit that happens that makes you want to blame Obama.   My main issue is that apparently deodorant is a priceless resource that nobody can afford to use. Ever. 
  12. Celestial Strike (Agents)

      I read that as Black Rose Dragon and I was really fucking confused, lol.   The deck looks like something build around what cards you WANT to run, not necessarily what cards are more effective. You're trying to do way too much, when in reality, Agents work well enough on their own if you just focus on their core ideas of synchro + Hyperion control.
  13. Never Gonna Give You Up

      TGU gets me Heiress on the field. I don't run her for the Xyz, I run her for the Tgu > Heiress > Commander plays, though having Zenmaines/Fortune Tune as walls that pop Heiress is a good bonus.
  14. Never Gonna Give You Up

        Does that happen because the eff to destroy it in the EP activates in the hand or something? o.o   I think it's rather something like a condition.   If you really want to play Rank 8, you should play Dark Creator and Archfiend Empress.   Naw, just ran it cause I didn't think.
