The Duelist Revolution

Even though there's still a month before this gets released in the TCG, I want to get my thoughts on some of the interesting stuff in this pack.

First off, you already know how much I'm interested in the Amazoness cards, so I won't divulge into that.

First off we have a little critter that's worth using in any stun deck:

Naturia Bamboochute

If you Tribute Summon this card successfully using a "Naturia" monster as a Tribute, your opponent cannot activate Spell or Trap Cards while this card is face-up on the field.
This card alone is good enough to launch Stun Decks to another level. This little thing packs so much hate in one effect, I'm going to make a deck around this. Probably going to use another fun name like Bamboo Control, Glenn Beck.dek, Rocky Bamboo, or anything else that hits my mind. But combined with Rock Stun is the best bet I can give, considering Naturia Cliff can work wonders in the deck itself as a floater.

Another cool monster we got here in Effect Veiler.

During your opponent's Main Phase, you can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard and select 1 monster your opponent controls. Negate that monster's effects until the End Phase.

Now, this can be quite the good side-deck material for many decks. Sure, it unfortunately won't stop things like Gorz, Kalut, or Honest, but it works wonders against Faultroll, Monarchs, Substitoad, floaters (Emmersblade being the most common one), Rai-Oh, Jinzo, Vanity's Fiend, Banisher, and so much more.

Quite the handy thing to have around. This card has been seriously overlooked.

Next up:

Delta Fly

Once per turn, you can increase the Level of 1 other monster you control by 1
Dragon decks are going to go apesh*t with this card. Hopeless Dragon can have yet another great tuner. Heck, even if you're not running a Dragon deck, this is one great tuner to use with any level 4 monster for an instant level 8 synchro.

Another interesting card worth mentioning is Divine Warning:

Pay 2000 Life Points. Negate the Summon of a Monster or the activation of a Spell Card, Trap Card, or Effect Monster's effect that includes the Special Summoning of a monster and destroy it.
Great for things like Battle Fader, Gorz, and other annoying monsters that summon via effect.

And lastly, a card nobody has yet to mention but is really good support for a specific deck.



When this card is Normal Summoned, you can select 1 Level 1 Beast-Type monster in your Graveyard and Special Summon it in face-up Defense Position. The effect(s) of the monster Special Summoned by this effect is negated.

Yet another way to recycle King of the Beasts via Moja. Even though it says it negates effects, Moja's tributing is a cost. It won't have any issues at all bringing back the beastly behemoth the deck depends on.

There's a whole lot more worth mentioning (Double Syclone, Scraps, Unicorn Cards), but that's all I got for today...
