    March 2010 also known as Edison format is known as one of the most fun formats in the game, only to get ruined by The Shining Darkness. There was 1 sjc during this brief format and that was the 75th Shonen Jump Championship won by Jeff Jones using Quickdraw plants. The most used decks were Quickdraw, Flamvells, Cat synchro variants, Gladiator beasts, Blackwings, Gadget variants and Lightsworn variants. 

 

Power plays of the format:

  •      Quickdraw -> pitch Dandylion -> 2 tokens -> make Drill Warrior. Then use Drill Warrior to recycle key monsters like Dandylion for more tokens or Quickdraw for more synchros
  •        Flamvell Firedog attacking over a monster -> Make a lv 8 synchro and set up rekindling plays
  •       Summoner Monk -> Cat -> 2 Airbellum. Here you can swing with both and rip 2 or make Arcanite Magician destroy 2 cards and swing with the other Airbellum
  •    Filp spy -> Descendant -> destroy 1 card Then tribute for Caius. This play also works with flipping Ryko or Super nimble mega hamster.
  •     Black whirlwind -> Shura (or any blackwing monster really) -> grab Kalut -> attack over their monster -> get Vayu -> Make Catastor and put a Vayu in grave
  •  Future Fusion (this only really works if you are Peter Cheng) -> send Jinzos,  Jinzo Returners and fortress -> otk
  •   Prisma -> Copy Gyzarus to send Bestiari -> special Test tiger -> tribute it to send back Prisma -> summon Darius and special Bestiari from grave -> contact into Gyzarus
