Banlist thoughts

Lightlord
pretty excited to see if this theme can top any tournaments with lumina being semi-limited and guardna at 2 now. not only that JD is also at 3. so it would be pretty interesting to see if it is able to emerge as top tier again. 

however, this deck is no longer as fast as it used to be when charge is playable at 3. it also depends on its grave to have sufficient materials. now that glow up bulb has been banned, it hurts this deck as well and it has to rely on carrier being the most potent tuner available.


Doppel
really sad to see bulb and spore being banned. konami makes it so obvious that they are promoting exceeds now. 

our poor doppel suffers the most as it is the one of the most synchro based deck. of course not to forget about laval, and yes they are untouched!expect this theme to suffer a decrease in its popularity.


Agent angel
striker and earth got limited, so that hurt this deck pretty badly. of course it is still playable with the incorporation of a few techs here and there, but the pace just isnt there anymore. you can no longer get venus to hand as fast as how it used to be. 


earth got limited would mean that there will be 2 targets lesser for hyperion, so expect some shift towards the use of jupiter?or other agents in the coming future.


Six sam
smoke signal to 2, shien still remains at 1. definitely faster pace, but shien at 1 is still the main problem of the deck due to the absence of "locking" when it is being gotten rid of.


Conclusion
i can only say that ALL THEME DECKS ARE NOT DEAD! there are still ways to play around with it, regardless of how bad the list hits them. it is just a matter of speed, consistency and explosiveness. 


i would expect these decks to pale in face of better themes such as inzektor, holy carved dragons and the newly released magical theme. we do have to realize that these are themes that are currently at its prime due to no restrictions being placed on their card choices or whatsoever. all cards can be played at 3. 


furthermore, they are new. meaning people would want to explore these concepts and play with it. we humans to a certain extent like new things, dont we? well, we have to wait and see how well these new themes perform, whether they are meta-changing or not.


all in all, i cant wait for holy carved and the new magical theme. oh, and not to forget the LIGHTRAYS
