    I like the buffs they gave these cards a lot

    Does this mean we gonna get Defense Wall and One on One Fight ?

  • October 10, 2023 at 12:34 am

    It took… so long…

    Honestly I wanted to forget about that duel. Labyrinth bros without a spacial competent is coal. Protection from all orange but only activated green is oddly specific. Level Limit – Area B will still save your behind but not Defender of the Ice Barrier.

    Before the page fully loaded I as.s.umed it was some destiny hero. What bliss, it feels like GX is still airing. Must be Special Summoned with “Dark Element” or- feels like unnecessary text when Dark Element ignores summoning conditions anyway.

      DG has to be summoned from the hand or GY by it’s own procedure, Element can summon from the Deck as well, hence “ignoring the Summoning conditions”.

    YES. This is SO good.

    I’m irritated by the title misdirection starting off as “Learn The Darkest Secrets Of The Labyrinth…” and NOT be new Labrynth cards.

  • October 10, 2023 at 3:39 am

    Is Dark Guardian basically a spider?

      Wtf? The spell is dead if you haven’t a GG in the gy, and is also searchable. Playing both as a 1-of is okay, especially you can just summon Combined in case you have already drawn the monster above.

    Garbage support. WTF were Konami thinking? Where are the starters and extenders the deck so desperately needs? We don’t need a bloody main deck brick boss monster and that spell sucks so much. How are you even getting a Gate Guardian monster in GY in-engine? Do they expect us to just play this spell on turn 3 after already having lost?

    Imagine seeing the new GG support in Duel Links. That alone would bring back many people.
