How to Innovate – Mark (AKA Destiny Hero)

 

We’ve all seen many champions come and go. We all want to be just like them, so we copy their decks to do just as good as them. But the Heart of the Cards will always be against you. You’ll never do as well as him (or her, someday.). If, for instance, and I’m using this as an example, you look at Adam Corn’s deck. You look for about an hour, and see how to use it. You then copy it and go to a national, hoping to win. Chances are high that you will lose. It is not fair at all. Look at him – he probably spent weeks on it. He chose every individual card to be in it, and he should be the only one to be using it. I’m sure he would not be happy at all if you were taking the cheap way (in fairness, not money) to win, using him as a puppet.

 

Now, let’s say that every player in the whole country copied Adam’s deck. Nobody thought they were good enough to think they could make a winning deck or have fun. Would you like that at all? Now, let’s say you were Marc Glass. Except you never entered that tournament and one, and became as popular as you are in this real universe. YOU knew how good your deck was, so you went pwning. But, to your surprise, everyone was using the same deck because it was good. Even though you won the national, do you think you had any fun in this alternate reality? NO.  You had no fun winning because you were actually dueling the same person every time. And since they had not spent weeks with the deck changing it so they’d know how to counter their weaknesses, they were all noobs who did not know how to fully utilize the deck in front of them.

 

Now, let’s create a third alternate reality where you are still Marc Glass, but you will end up dueling only one Adam Corn. All the rest are entirely new decks that you have never seen before. Though you won the National again, do you think you had any fun?

 

Now we’ll make a fourth alternate reality. This time, you are in the same exact situation as you were in #3, but you lost. Do you think you had any fun? YES. Both of them, you should have had a great time. You saw many different people, and you were challenged a lot, and at the same time, you learned your deck’s purest weakness and advantages. You learned tactics that were almost suicidal, but actually made you much stronger. Not only that, but you learned how to act better, to trick your opponent, to trick them by reverse psychology, and best of all, what a deck is.

 

Yes, you may think you know what a deck is, especially if you’ve been cheating by copying winning decks. Well, you don’t know what a deck is. That’s right. No matter how good you are, noob to elite, you have no idea what a deck really is. It is the core of the game. All of Yu-Gi-Oh! revolves around it. You may think you understand even yourself, but you don’t. Heck, you and I both have no idea what we are. We don’t what the core of life is, what time, space, and the universe revolves around. You can’t even understand what you’re looking at. Your computer screen. You say you know all about it, but do you really know that much about the plasma inside the screen? Where did it come from? How was it made?

 

Where did it come from? How was it made?

Look at anything in the world. Ask yourself that^. Look at your deck. Yes, it came from the factory. Yes, it was manufactured. But how was it manufactured? What made the thing that made it? Keep on asking this to yourself. By asking one question about a simple trading card will bring you to the core of life and death. Also time and space. All you need to know is those two things about the universe and you will have infinite knowledge about everything in existence.
