  2. wot How about grabbing a stone to discard off Melody? Making a level 9 synchro? Without Sage if you want to synchro then you normal summon the stones. Which is a lot worse since the deck frequently has a lot of ways to grave the stones anyways (such as Melody, Shrine in some builds, CoC, Twin Twisters), so using your normal summon to make a Spirit and then activate the stone effect seems pointless when 1/4th of the deck can discard them anyways. Yes, free card advantage is good. The deck doesn't have that many normal summons in the first place. Ignoring CoC, If you didn't have the free stone off Sage, then you'd have to discard a more valuable card for your other discard cards too. It's also the only reason CoC is consistent with 4 targets. In a bit more rare but still happens situation, you can use it to fetch a Blue-Eyes off a summoned Stone. tl;dr: It's a free card to feed your thinning in a deck that otherwise doesn't use normal summons. It then 1-1 synchros one of your Blue-Eyes monsters into a better monster. I don't see why you would want to replace that.
  3. Topping OCG PKBA decks seems rather split on whether running this card is worth it in PKBA. People running it aren't even running Azzathoth. So that doesn't seem to be the deciding factor in playing it. It's just XYZ Rebellion + 80 + C80 + Ophion as the 4 extra cards. You only have to run 1-2 copies of it since you can search it, and it's good when you can use it. But there's still the problems of when you can't use it. Anyone else tried it yet? Worth the couple main deck/4-5 extra deck slots or no?
  4. For Limited cards which can be searched (Kirin/DD) you'd probably have to go first when siding it for it to be effective. But even then it's not a card that straight up wins you the game or puts you in that huge a position compared to the average go first side card.
  5. And stuff like Kaijus is why you shouldn't minus yourself just to setup ABC.
  6. But it: can't make a rank 5 in this deck without Galaxy Soldier, which already sets Infinity up by itself. The card it dumps doesn't replace itself or do anything at all unless you can get the other pieces and the double summon effect still makes you have to make a -1 xyz and is only useful if you have two pieces. Otherwise it's just a Photon Thrasher that Maxx C can chain to (but worse because it's a -1 on addition to the xyz you make being a -1) Unlike how Brilliant Fusion is used in other decks, the light dump doesn't replace itself at all. It's less a combo starter in this deck because of this. It relies on you having the other two pieces available to setup ABC. Otherwise it's just main decking Double Summon. If you have a Gadget and a piece then you can still do some cute things with Gigant X to setup ABC, but that requires a 3 card combo too. Getting 2 ABC pieces is more likely with Union Hanger, but if you have Union Hanger then you're already in a great spot and this card's function is weaker. So I don't think it's that good. If you want to make plays outside your normal summon, there's Instant Fusion because we have Norden, and that card is a swiss army knife that can deal with nearly every problem and make your first turns stronger too. Or you can go the Galaxy Soldier route and that alone is enough. And the there's the additional part of the card adding bricks in an already fairly consistent deck, especially with Pot of Desires activations often making it not work and leaving a bunch of dead draws in your deck off that Desires. And I'd far rather play Pot of Greed than Brilliant Fusion if I had to pick between them. ==================================== I admit I'm entirely overreacting on the card though. If PKBA is still a deck when this comes out, it will need to be able to easily get around fog blade, strikes and all that jazz. If they stop your gadget (no photon) to stop you from getting a Union on board for Union hanger, then you can use Brilliant Fusion to continue the play. It also does unbrick a lot of hands. If it unbricked most bad hands, it would be great. But it doesn't because of the requirements. It's not very helpful in a good/average hands also which lowers the ceiling of those hands a bit when it could be Desires, a trap , Instant Fusion or other good card like that.
  7. It's probably better to just play Desires so you can draw into Union Hanger/Terraforming more often. It requires less cards so you can run more traps or Maxx C too.
  8. It's actually just 2 months from now and is going to be the majority of the format and not this honeymoon 2 month format, but eh. I know TCG only players will be ignorant to the whole thing. Can't expect them to keep up with new cards. You're looking at the short term strengths of the list, and I'm looking at the long term faults of the list. The f/l discussion is that the lack of Norden ban or IF hit is really dumb and everyone will be hating it very soon. It's just a choice to push new product into the meta and sell their secret rare. It's not my fault this guy keeps quoting me and continuing the discussion. I'll stop responding to him.
  9. The list you posted looks like a mess and more of a one trick pony than Heroes which is actually topping. That angler card also isn't tcg legal. Tbh by making these posts I'm sure I look like one of those crazy people who scream "Gladiator beasts will be tier 1 mark my words" after lists come out, but whatever. I think having Norden is enough to push it to be good and I'll just say I don't look forward to the post INOV format because of it.
  10. Magician won't be played with 1 Call though, and we already went over this. Metalfoes are better than Magicians as a scale deck when there is no Call. They can search what makes their scales sticky, and Magicians rely on drawing that 1 Call. If anything no Pendulum decks will be played, but lets see what happens in testing.
  11. Okay the "deck has to go first" argument has always been garbage. If the deck could only win if it goes first, then it wouldn't be as successful in events. Very few people will realistically get that luck of winning every single roll. A glass cannon deck cannot and will not ever get multiple tops in an event. The heroes you know are not the heroes we will be playing. 3 Instant Fusion, 3 Hero Lives, Soul Charge, (draw power to get those), and all the rank 4 spam means there are plenty of plays to break boards (without losing card advantage or relying on normal summons) in a single turn whether they be Kozmo boards or not. The TCG meta is not stronger than the OCG meta now either, so that can't be used as an excuse.
  12. I was messing around in the fake format of TCG list + OCG cards and Treatoad Heroes are just not fair when Instant Fusion is at 3 w/ Norden. List will be good for a few months and then when INOV hits Heroes are going to become tier 1 and darklaw.dek being that good is not going to be fun. Deck's nearly tier 1 in Japan with only 1 Shadow Mist and no Norden to abuse w/ Instant Fusion. Sure they have Stratos instead but 3 Shadow Mist is better. It'll certainly be good enough to be meta here. Take this tournament for example: It's the 4th most popular deck and significantly weaker there than here. In general it's the 4th/5th best deck in Japan without Instant Fusion giving a free Bahamut+Treatoad 40% of games(desires and some other draw cards add odds) and 3 Shadow Mist. Otherwise IF is used for going second and breaking boards.
  13. Fuckers didn't ban Norden. Now they can sell all the Treatoads they want.
  14. INOV comes out 1 week later and I have no doubts this deck is good enough to beat ABC post-list and INOV, unless Kirin gets straight up banned. No idea how Spyral/Subterror will influence the meta of course. YCS Liverpool(UK) and a handful of regionals seem to be the main events going on between ABC release and INOV release. But yeah I really don't have anything to add to the discussion until a list comes out.
  15. I think summoning Tsukuyomi in game 2 is just asking to lose to Winter Cherries. I haven't played with the deck much myself but I haven't lost a single game against them where I cherries after they go Tsukuyomi. They just have nothing left.
