    Props to Marco for the win, but variance is variance.

    Explains why Double Helix wasn't a secret then.
  4. Right, I get the point about personal preferences and preconceptions warping one's judgment and wanting to dismiss unwanted elements in favor of what matches up with your preferences. As far as I understand, this is about players failing to pick up on something as a viable option simply because of their own preconceptions on what they like, and what the game should be like, leading to denial, right? I suppose I misunderstood the original point a little at first. Nevermind then. Apparently my reading comprehension isn't quite on point today. For some reason I went over the OP multiple times and yet somehow my brain picked it up as being about active discouragement, rather than outright self-delusion.
  5. I mean, it all just comes down to "don't hate the player, hate the game", doesn't it? You can't really blame someone for making use of what the game's ruleset offers them. Like, if you're convinced that a game is shit to play at a competitive level, then just... don't. If you even have to make a choice between playing to win or enjoying yourself in a game, you should probably reevaluate why you're playing the game to begin with, and find a different game that you'll be happier with. Sunk cost fallacy is a hell of a drug I guess. I'm just stating the obvious, but that's kind of why I could never really grasp this mentality.

    Considering this deck basically eats up its entire extra deck to make a play, do you just scoop if your first board isn't enough to win?
  9. The vast majority of tournaments in the OCG are unofficial and thus not bound by any of the usual rules, meaning that they generally adopt new banlists a few days to a week after they're published, rather than at their official date. Granted, the deck's probably not as good as other alternatives in the OCG meta now, so I don't actually think it needs any more hitting, it's just insane to see an archetype still kicking after having just about every single one of its consistency and power cards axed.
  10. Banned Drident, Barrage, Bull and limited Rat, semi limited Tenki and limited Terrortop in the OCG all to try to kill this deck. And it's still topping. How would you even stop it at this point? Just ban every single Zoodiac card?
  11. They can't hit Terraforming, too many decks that rely on their field spells as key engines, like every other theme they release these days relies on a field spell to work. Terraforming to 1 and basically all that shit just crashes and burns. Of course it's a bandaid solution to flawed card design, but at this point hitting Terraforming would cause way too much collateral damage for a card that isn't really an issue in itself as much as Konami's tendency to make field spells too powerful.
  12. Magician Pendulum - Discussion

    As crazy strong as the Supreme King Dragons are, those are coming out post-Links. Though idk, maybe this deck's engine is strong enough to still function even after Links. 3 Skullcrobat and 3 Pendulum Wizard is pretty insane. Anyone think of any decent Performapal search targets for Pendulum Wizard that work in Magicians? There's a new level 8 one coming in July (2 weeks before Links) that's also an Odd-Eyes monster and can fuse with anything in your monster or pendulum zones so that lets you play odd-eyes vortex without actually having to run odd-eyes, but as a level 8 you then rely on its own summoning condition since you can't Pendulum it. Anything else doesn't seem to have that much synergy.
  13. ignore this necro bump

    Zoo is still the best deck in OCG with no norden, no barrage, 1 rat, no drident and no terrortop, it'll survive somehow

    What a great idea releasing this after the new rules.

    That second one seems like a fake entry I mean, Card Trader?
