  1. Chaos Trap Hole isn't compatible with Rafflesia.
  2. Yeah, I can't find any official source that says one way or the other. Wikia says you can't, but that's hardly official. And I honestly wasn't even thinking about Charge not being a cost. It was just the closest thing I've been able to find. My bad. For what it's worth, I told the guy it was an illegal activation, but some people have been saying otherwise, since you "technically" have the LP to pay, but it will kill you to do so.
  3. This came up in a FB group earlier, and it was such a weird question that I haven't really been able to find a conclusive answer. If a player has exactly 1000LP, can they legally activate the destruction effect of Judgment Dragon, even though doing so would make them lose the game? Ignoring any reasoning for why they would want to do this (again, this somehow came up in a FB group I'm in). I know there was an old thread on Soul Charge that asked a similar question, but that was a cost that could be paid without losing at activation.

        Played against this guy in rated, and he was a complete douche the entire game. Then after the game he PMs me and lobs an insult in Spanish. Can something be done about this?

    Yeah, I'm bad. I didn't realize it worked in the damage step, but it's that whole "negating an effect" thing that makes it work where Gungnir doesn't.

    Ring is awesome. Chainable spot removal combined with burn damage. Peropero is slower than Tackle Crusader, but it can't be negated by Trish. That's important.EDIT: lol nvm I suck. It's also an out to Diamond (dump it early against Satellars) and pretty much any relevant floodgate.

    Hmm. I tried to reduce the number of potential brick cards in the deck, which is why there's no Felis, DAD, or anything of the sort. Keep it simple. Mistake is such a blowout against Nekroz, so I felt it was worth risking it being dead otherwise (I sided it out against RB, Dolls, and Infernoid, obviously). Playing around Trishula is very important, especially in g1 when I didn't have Lancea to cover me. One time I had to fuse a Construct and an in-hand Beast and forego both effects to stop a Trish play, but it won me the game. Playwise, I just tried to Winda a lot turn 1 and back it up with hand traps, and barring that I tried to set up Falco/SSG, which is still an incredibly strong play.     A lot of times I sided out a Dragon against Nekroz, but g1 it was still useful to break the Djinn lock with the flip effect. My last round opponent was a friend of mine, and he sided Decrees so I kept in both and it won me the game. There were a couple of times I wanted a LV6 just to get an ATK position Falco off the board, but I only Synchroed twice all day, once into an Arcanite that got Veilered, and once into Black Rose Twilight to clear an Ulti-Pettlephin. I never summoned Castel or Exciton, for what that's worth. And in regards to SSG, I usually sided out 1 going second, unless I had other cards I needed to take out more.   I actually never saw it. In testing before the regionals it was really good to me though.

    I got 6th at the Louisville, KY Regional yesterday with Dolls. I went 7-1, beating 4 Nekroz, 1 Shaddoll, 1 Infernoid, and 1 Ritual Beast, (all 2-0 wins except Infernoid) and losing 2-1 to Satellarknights (which got 5th). List is in the spoiler.

I will say that I have no regrets about the main, but Denkos and TTHN in the side were largely useless (the Denkos were for BA and the TTHNs were for rogue stuff like Sylvans).

    ASF doesn't allow either player to activate Spells until their next turn, regardless of what sort of Spell it is. So if you set El-Shaddoll with Fragrance up, you still cannot activate it until your next turn.

    And Omega only protects Constellars, so it isn't doing anything to save Construct.
  11. To reinforce Ness' point, the OCG rulings specifically say you don't have to control any monsters as long as you control a face-up Yosenju card.   http://ygorganization.com/ocg-special-pack-tribe-force-rulings/   "This card can also be activated if you have Sarenjichu, Torii of the Hermit Yokai in your Pendulum Zone and you control no face-up monsters in your Monster Zones."
  12. Your top 10 games of 2014

       did u play suidkoen 1 before 2?    I'm about to start that game on my PSP.       also more i think about bravely default, more i realise how much it did right. amazing side quests which were rewarding in every way, awesome emotionally charged plot with edea, charming ringabell, addictive yet slightly broken battle system.... just why did they do that to chapter 5-8. why!    I didn't, but most people recommend that you do because of the bonuses from transferring the S1 save file to S2. And yeah, while I love the story twists after Chapter 4 in BD, I rushed through the gameplay after level grinding in Chapters 4 and 6. It got old.
  13. Your top 10 games of 2014

    In no particular order (and trying to limit it to games with a 2014 release): Persona Q Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor The Evil Within Assassin's Creed: Rogue Pokemon Omega Ruby Super Smash Bros 3DS Bravely Default Far Cry 4 Wolfenstein: The New Order Suikoden II (this year was the first time I got to play it on something that wasn't a crappy emulator)

    I think he's saying that his friends had been playing Qliphorts that long, not that he'd been testing Rubic that long.
  15. I think a lot of your appeal lies in your presentation, Deadborder. Personally, I find your posts hilarious. Nothing wrong with the content, but when you start talking about "spooks and treats" and making puns I just lose it. Just my opinion, but given your popularity on here I'd say I'm not the only one who feels that way.
