I figured I get this list out of the way before I end up being completely unavailable (moving to the states) for a bit. Anyways, let's get the second anual Top 10 list rolling, shall we? In this list I pick what I found to be the Top 10 cards of this year. Keep in mind some may be on this list due to earlier this year, as I take into consideration the entire year and not just the current time.
#10: Genex Ally Birdman
This little tuner offered so many shenanigans that it wasn't even funny. Still sees a lot of play nowadays, participating with such cards as Agents, Tour Guide, Tengu, or even other cards. Whether you like it or not, this was probably the tuner you went to for crazy synchro plays. And with the release of Xyz monsters, Birdman got even more new tricks.
#9: Maxxx C
At first it started as a side card, but nowadays it's starting to become as common as a Veiler for the main deck. It gives advantage when your opponent begins to swarm, so it forces your opponent to either make you draw a lot or stop the swarm completely. Quite a fun card to use indeed, but needs to be used at the right time or else it can backfire.
#8: Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
When Trishula finally arrived in the TCG, it became a force to be reckoned with. This card became the go-to Level 9 synchro for removal, leaving Mist Wurm behind in the dust. It became a very explosive synchro back when Fishborg was legal, as well as a pseudo-boss for Agents when they played around with Birdman.
#7: Master Hyperion
And speaking of Agents, this card here threw these to the next level. It became an incredible boss monster for the archetype, being easily summonable and searchable. Hyperion was able to remove cards on the field as well as control the graveyard's numbers so you could summon Krystia and keep even more control of the game.
#6: Rescue Rabbit / Evolzaur Laggia / Evolzaur Dolkka
Why are these three in the same spot? Well, basically because these three essentially go hand in hand. When you see these massive Xyz dino powerhouses, there's always a Rabbit following. With the explosive power of Rabbit, you can basically summon any of these following monsters virtually from the deck. Not too shabby, right?
This concludes part 1 of the countdown. Part 2 will be out in just a few days, I suppose. Perhaps even sooner. Until next time!
