The basics 3 : Do not give your opponent unneeded choices

    If you consider yourself as an ok player, don't read this article. This is a reminder of something that seems obvious but that is not.
    I've been seeing this two or three times : call more than one monster turn 0.

Advertisings on the blog

     Hi, you will probably notic (or not if you have Ad block), but from today there will be a few spots of ads on my blog.

      Because it is always a bit irritating for you, I want to take some times to explain my thoughts behind this.

Why I think rotation format is the best

    I had a quick argument on the facebook page on whether or not Bushiroad shall establish a rotation format.
     This is why I want to take an article explain why rotation format is, in my mind, the best format.

Deck review : Star

   Star is a grind deck which turns around stuns. With all the two criticals, they dig slowly the opponent's life while soft locking the opponent with Great star.

    Because of Frozen stars, your opponent will be forced to focus your side monsters, and with Schedar cassiopeia, lion and Zlatorog, you can refresh the board every times it gets empty (at least you are supposed to, on paper) .

    The main (if not only) formation in the deck is : size 2 non star to the center, size 1 and size 0 star in the sides. The size 2 (Zlatarog  or Gold lion of nemea) are here to give you on call advantage, it is logic to call them to the center otherwise your opponent will ignor them.
     Of course, the two stars on the side are here to enable Frozen star.

     With all the 2 crits, they have good damages, and Breathen gard can easilly kill at 6 lifes. Which is very unexpected and gives Star good power play (this + Frozen stars).
     With gold lion and Cassipeia, they have nice Card advantage.

    But outside of that, I hardly find any quality to the deck :
       Field control is not that good : They have better power than Wizard, but no destruction.
      As a legend world deck, they have very lackluster defense.
      But unlike other Legend world's deck they have bad Gauge management. LW gives them gauge, but the huge cost will make you run out of gauge.
      It is a pretty straightforward deck, and very unconsistent because of how reliant on Frozen star they are.

Deck playtest : Star

     Star, archetype that was first seen as a total stun deck, with the combination of board nullifier (Frozen stars, also called 'The gate') that applies as long as you have monsters on the sides, and Astraeus that willl make those monsters undestructable.
      With tests, this way of playing is for the anime only. In the TCG, you have to play it a different way.

What i would like to see in Buddyfight

    This article is only about what I dream of for the game buddyfight.  They will probably never happen.

Super buddy : 
    They are a slightly superior version of another card. For instance super drum has 6/3/5. They can only be played at one and only as your buddy.  You can only call them once and only by buddycalling him with one of the original version of the card that is in your deck (remember what i told you on buddycall in my previous article). This boost must not be too big to not favour too much the player who buddycalled, it can make viable some unplayed cards like Mega evolution did on certain Pokemon (in the competitive format of course).
