Adreus, Keeper of Armageddon

One of the new TCG Exclusives in the next set, Adreus looks like a very interesting Exceed Monster.

2 Level 5 monsters
Once per turn, you can detach an Exceed Material from this card to target 1 face-up card your opponent controls and destroy it.

Rank 5 gives us another option to Tiras, Keeper of Genesis. Not just that, it makes it for yet another ideal Exceed to use in Dark World. Another great Exceed monster added to the GENF set, let's see how Adreus makes an impact. But from what I can see, it's going to be a very good card for any deck that can summon it with ease (besides, Dark World).

Word Changes in the TCG

Found this article on the Konami site that indicates a wording change for some aspects of the game.


1. "Remove from play" will now be known as "Banish."

2. "Removed from the field" will change to "leaves the field."

3. "During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent" now becomes "piercing battle damage."

4. "Selected as an attack target" will now be known as "targeted for an attack."

5. Hero monsters will now be referred to as HERO monsters.

Now then, with all these new changes...there are good and bad points.

1. I have no problem with banish, but remove from play seemed simpler to newer players. So changing it was a bit unexpected.

2. Leaving the field is something I have no problem with, since it clears up a few misunderstandings with some plays. I'm all for it.

3. Piercing damage at last! Finally!

4. Again, no problem with this. Helps resolve targeting issues and what not.

5. They should have done this from the start...

All in all, there are mixed reactions to the word changes. But for now, I can hope this wording change can truly help resolve key issues in rulings.

Elemental Hero Escuridão

1 "Elemental Hero" monster + 1 DARK monster
This card cannot be Special Summoned except by Fusion Summon. This card gains 100 ATK for each "Elemental Hero" monster in your Graveyard.

At last, Elemental Heroes are now able to fuse with every attribute. Most of all, this DARK fusion means a chaos variant of heroes could be viable, since Shining is a very good card as well. While it's effect may leave a few people wanting more, it's the attribute that makes this card great.

Por fin, los Heroes Elementales ahora pueden combinarse con todos los atributos. Sobre todo, una fusion oscura abre la puerta para una variante Chaos del deck, especialmente como Shining es muy buena carta. Mientras el efecto de este nuevo heroe deja a muchos deseando mas, es el atributo que lo hace bueno.

This is all thanks to Super Polymerization. Now Gravekeepers, Blackwings, Shi En, and others will have to watch out as well.

Es todo gracias a Super Polymerization, ya que los Gravekeepers, Blackwings, Shi En, entre otros tienen que estar igualmente pendiente ahora.

Tour Guide From the Underworld

Classes are over, so it's time to once again continue blogging (as much as I can during vacation).

Se acabaron las clases, asi que puedo volver a escribir (lo mas que pueda durante vacaciones).

First thing I did, review some of the newer cards I ignored during finals. After some searching, I came across this little curiosity. Hey, I know I'm a bit late on the EXVC stuff, but finals were more important.

Lo primero que hice fue ver las cartas nuevas que ignore durante mis examenes finales. Despues de buscar un rato, me encontre esta carta curiosa. Se que estoy tarde para todo esto de EXVC, pero mis finales fueron mas importantes.

When this card is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 Level 3 Fiend-Type monster from your hand or Deck. Its effects are negated, and it cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster.

Can't be used for Synchro? No problem! Exceed then!

No se puede usar para synchro? No hay problema! Usalo para Exceed!

I like how it can also thin the deck by either getting a copy of itself or Sangan. But I mostly like it for the Exceed shenanigans, especially since there are a few interesting Rank 3 monsters, like Tera Byte.

Me gusta como puede vaciar el deck por una copia de si misma o con Sangan. Pero mayormente me gusta por los trucos para Exceed, especialmente como he visto algunos monstruos rango 3 que han sido interesantes como Tera Byte.

Dueling Network

Actually giving it a try, and it's not bad at all. Finding myself regaining a bit of interest in this game since I can now I can just duel when I want.

Perhaps I might duel there a lot more often.

Psychics VS Tech Genus

Back for a bit during my hiatus. Been away mostly due to finals and other projects I have been working with. Another reason I haven't blogged in a while is due to a slight decrease in interest in this game. But now that I got some free time, I might get back into it...who knows.

But yes, on to the main point. I captured yet another video for the blog during yesterday's tournament (which was full of losses for me) between my 2 teammates.
