Boost warrior

How come i always seem to find quickdraw dandywarrior supports in all sets? maybe this theme is so versatile that any cards can fit into it? if so, then that is really amazing.

To be honest,boost warrior didnt catch my attention on first sight. it is only under close examination of its text did i realize that it is actually good.

Effect: If you control a face-up tuner monster you can special summon this card in face-up defense position. While this card is face-up on the field, all face-up warrior-type monsters you control gain 300 ATK.

the boosting in ATK for warrior-type monsters is rather irrelevant. what caught my eye is its special summon ability. 

it allows you to special summon itself when there is a face-up tuner monster. which is rather "free".

Quickdraw synchron can be easily special summoned, thereby fulfilling this card's special summon ability. discard dandylion for quickdraw, special summon 2 tokens, and boost warior. synchro for 1 formula synchron, and 1 drill warrior instantly.

from shriek, it is a non-tuner, which means the above combo can gives you junk destroyer and destroying 3 cards immediately!

well, i think quickdraw is really hard to keep up with in this format, with 3 blackrose easily accessible and dark hole sucking people in.the other decks will have to marvel at it and sigh. LOL...

Banlist thoughts.

Banlist for September 2010.


Rescue Cat
Heavy Storm
Brain Control


Black Whirlwind

Royal Oppression

Infernity Gun


Monster Reborn

Dark Hole

Semi Limited:

Mystical Space Typhoon

Chaos Sorcerer

Snipe Hunter

Ojama Trio

Magic Cylinder


Black Rose Dragon
Goblin Zombie
Cyber Dragon
Treeborn Frog
Royal Decree
United We Stand

well,finally the long awaited list is here!i am actually still in the state of shock to see black hole and monster reborn back. and coming to think of it, konami is extremely clever. firstly reprinting starlight road in yusei pack, and then giving us some cards of mass destruction. black rose back to 3? dark hole ? 

oh well...maybe i can start buying all the potential cards that are currently banned and make a profit out of it once they are released from the "prison". haha...

like i said before, with new sets coming out, OTK and FTK decks are still possible, and also the emergence of new meta. 

though bf-zephyros the elite's effect is left untouched except with a condition placed that is trendy nowadays, BF may not be the top tier meta again in this format.  currently, i feel that quickdraw dandy is still the top meta and may continue to dominate.

and i have a feeling that zombies may be

Random thoughts

coming to think about it, having a banlist actually makes the game more lively. it stops/slows down those FTK/OTK decks, hurts the meta a little. then all duelists have to come out with new ideas again.

Even with the banlist there are still a lot of metas around, some last longer, while other perished under the mighty hand of the banlist. still it is no surprise that with every new banlist, there are new metas coming up, fighting their way to the top of the ladder.

imagine what it would be without banlist? people grew tired of confiscate + delinquent duo + forceful sentry, sixth sense + six sense = draw 12, the chaos dragon explode. and we see the same old thing again and again.

as the banlist is approaching, take your chance to play the crazy decks like frog FTK etc, enjoy it while you can.

lastly, gusta OTK is really kinda gay. LOL...too bad it escapes the new banlist. =(

Banlist Prediction

As September is around the corner, and new banlist is coming soon, it is inevitable that predictions are made. and now, i shall make my own predictions. with some considerations of the current meta.

Limited to 1:

Trishula - simply too imba. and must be put to a stop to this.
Infernity Gun - infernity's version of monster reborn. limiting this card can greatly hurt the infernity deck greatly.
substitoad - main engine of the frog monarch deck.
mass driver - look at magical explosion. konami just doesnt like OTK decks.
treeborn frog - time for him to get back in, after taking some fresh air out for a while.
dandylion - time for him to get back in, after taking some fresh air out for a while.

Limited to 2:

Kalut - look at honest
pot of avarice - too good in a monster-grave-filling deck.
swap frog - slow down the Armageddon of the water abuse, and then tribute as a food for substitoad.
solemn judgement - just a hunch.haha...


destiny draw - why is it in here in the first place?


Crush card virus - time for it to be back and take some fresh air.
magician of faith - time for it to be back and take some fresh air.
Dark Magician Of Chaos - i wish it to come back every single time a new banlist comes.

some cards like pot of duality, dargunity aclys, etc. i will expect them to get into the list, but think about it, the US side has not get it yet(for dragunity), and even if they do get it (pot of duality), its only been a month. Konami wont do such things because they wants to make money, and lots of it. oh well, at least i thought so. hohoho...

Conclusion: xing you lost to him, and i had to win him. because he got a BYE earlier, and in an event of a three way tie, he will become 3rd. sadly, i got OTKed in 2nd game. trunade, sirocco,bora,bora,gale, focus all. synchro into scrap dragon destroy my bora, all attack. =.="

In the end shared 2/3 placing with xing you, and got a box of dragunity structure deck.
