  1. If you're going first with Duo, there's almost no reason not to use it. The chance of the opponent having Serpent is very low. A lot of people tend to hold their Graceful much longer than they should. If you're in a pretty poor position, and your best move without using Charity is subpar, then there's no point in the game going even more downhill just so you might be able to get a single +1 later on. If your opponent went first and all they have is a t-set with no trinity in grave, then I would just hold the NoC and attack the set. If they waste resources protecting the set (like using BoM on a monster that's not a threat or using ring on something like sangan), then obviously you use NoC. If the opponent goes first and uses trinity or sets multiple backrow, then obviously you use NoC for the Faith or Jar. You use it to pressure the opponent or out a problematic monster. Very rarely, if ever, would you ever want to set Tsuku. Only maybe in situations where both of you are just setting and passing, and you don't want to discard anything for the hand size limit. When you guys are facing HAM or whatever the reasoning/gate turbo deck is called, what exactly do you side in and out when playing a typical Goat deck? The deck is still very rare and in all honesty isn't that good outside of lucky wins when they open the nuts, so I don't know if siding things specifically for it is worth it, but losing to stuff like Reasoning+Gate+Chaos stuff is stupid.
  2. Have you ever read the rulebook before? Regardless of whether a card says to tribute a monster you "control" or not is irrelevant considering to tribute, by definition, is to send a monster you control to the graveyard, unless explicitly stated otherwise on the card. You can also tribute set cards, by definition, unless the card explicitly states otherwise. Furthermore, to control a card is simply to have it in your Monster Zone, Spell & Trap Zone, Field Zone, or Pendulum Zone. Whether a card is face-down or not is irrelevant; if it is on your side of the field, you control it. Before posting idiotic answers, read the rulebook. You can find it here: Page 49 defines "Control" and "Possess." "Cards you “control” are the cards in your Monster Zone, Spell & Trap Zone, Field Zone, and Pendulum Zone. Cards in your “possession” include all cards you control, plus the cards in your hand, Deck, Extra Deck, Graveyard, your banished cards, cards in the middle of being Summoned to your side of the field, and Xyz Materials attached to monsters you control. If a player takes control of a card from their opponent, move it to the new controller’s side of the field. If sent to the Graveyard, or returned to the hand or Deck, it is always returned to the Graveyard / hand / Deck of the original owner." Page 51 defines "Tribute." "Tributing is sending a monster you control to the Graveyard. You can Tribute a face-up or face-down monster, unless otherwise specified. Tributing a monster is one possible cost for Summoning a monster or activating an effect. A monster sent to the Graveyard by Tributing is not treated as “destroyed.”"
  3. 2014, a bit after the wcq season iirc. Same time they changed the first turn draw rule.
  4. Opt in. Same username as on here.
  5. It's up pretty much 24/7 now, but disconnecting is still a real issue.
  6. Individual players' playstyles do not exist. Different decks may behave differently, but there are always good plays and bad plays, depending on the situation, and good players will be able to determine which play is the best to make in most situations. Both formats have their obvious pros and cons, but trying to change Exarion Goats into a completely different format with changed effects seems stupid and pointless. All it would do is cause unnecessary confusion between players. First, you'll start with changing Exarion's effect, then you'll change Ring, then BLS, etc., etc. If you want to play with Exarion, then play Exarion Goats. If you don't, then don't. It's that simple.
  7. This is where you're wrong.
  8. Growing up in the Sacramento, California area, I never heard anyone thank the bus driver, but that's probably because a large majority of the people who rode the bus were high school students. Now that I'm attending school in Central Cali, it's hit or miss. Most people don't, but whenever I do take the bus, there are at least a few people who do thank the driver before getting off.
  9. This alone makes the stream worth watching, even in a shitty format like this one.
  10. According to Problem-Solving Card Text, the "then" conjunction means that when resolving the effect, if the attack is not negated, the rest of the effect will not be applied. You can refer to the Konami article regarding PSCT conjunctions, here, to learn more.
  11. Special Summon Monsters must first be special summoned properly before being able to be summoned from the graveyard, regardless of whether or not the card summoning it "ignores its summoning conditions." All monsters with the text "Must first be Special Summoned..." or "Must be Special Summoned... and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways" are Special Summon Monsters.
  12. Honestly, I doubt Lullaby will be a very great or popular card. It seems rather lackluster to be honest. Sure, taking one of your opponent's best monsters sounds amazing, but in practice, most good monsters get their effects off when they leave the field or can recur themselves, so you have to be careful how you use it. There just seem to be many, better matchup-specific side cards than Lullaby which is only good in the mirror. Lullaby still seems like it would be alright in some mirrors though. In BA for instance, it searches out Terrortop. In Pendulums, you can search out Kirin which can be devastating considering it's limited now. You would just have to watch out for it leaving the field though. In Metalfoes, you can search out Gofu for the insane Crystal Wing opening. In D/D, you can search out Keplar or even Ragnarock or Thomas which can be very good for your large 3-4 card combos. If Herald somehow becomes popular (doubt it considering the deck has so many issues), it can steal a Scepter or one of your rituals.
  13. There should be three options on the top-left of the window, something like "always chain," "sometimes chain," and "never chain." Also, if you hold down the 'A' key on your keyboard, it will force the prompt up whenever possible, and if you hold down the 'S' key, it will prevent the prompt from coming up.
  14. So, Herald topped YCS Rimini. His List: 3 Herald of Perfection 3 Cyber Angel Benten 1 Saffira Queen of Dragons 3 Manju of the Thousand Hands 3 Star Steraph Scepter 3 Star Seraph Sovereignty 2 Summoner Monk 3 Ritual Sanctuary 3 Terraforming 3 Dawn of the Herald 1 Hymn of Light 3 Pre-Preparation of Rites 1 Preparation of Rites 3 Instant Fusion 1 Soul Charge 1 Raigeki 1 Upstart Goblin 1 One Day of Peace 1 Metalfoe Fusion 1 Elder Entity Norden 1 Darkfire Dragon 1 Abyss Dweller 1 Diamond Dire Wolf 1 Daigusto Emeral 1 Castel the Skyblaster Musketeer 1 Fairy Cheer Girl 1 Steelswarm Roach 1 Stellarknight Delteros 1 Evilswarm Ouroboros 1 Number 104: Maquerade 1 Constellar Tellarknight Diamond 1 Number 24: Dragulas the Vampiric Dragon 1 Constellar Ptolemy M7 1 Number 39: Utopic Beyond 2 Dark Hole 2 Book of Eclipse 3 Maxx "C" 3 Twin Twisters 2 Ally of Justice Cyclone Reader 2 Effect Veiler 1 Artifact Lancea Metalfoe Fusion was to discard for Sanctuary, making it essentially costless. Roach was for pendulums. Masquerade was for BA/Kozmo. Lancea was for Kozmo/Monarchs and could be recycled with Saffira. The rest was pretty self-explanatory.
