Some Thoughts on Yugioh

By: Megaverse

First of all, it’s a game, only a game.

There is no reason to get angry if you lose. In fact, you should use the fact that you lost as an opportunity to improve yourself as a duelist. Ask yourself “Why did I lose?” , “What was it that caused me to lose?”  Then you change that which caused you to lose and you get better.

Making mistakes when you duel

We are all guilty of this and don’t lie to yourself about it, it happens and will continue to happen. It is all a matter of paying attention to what you are doing. The other day, I was dueling a friend of mine and got distracted from the game. I tribute summoned a Zaborg and it was the only monster on the field! I lost due to a stupid mistake because I was not paying attention.

Do not depend upon drawing certain cards

If you have a combo that requires a few cards to set it up, chances are, you will not get those cards when you need them. So design your deck and strategy around NOT getting those cards. Let’s just look at numbers for a second. If you have two cards in a deck of 40 that you need, that is a 1 in 20 chance of getting one of them. Make your deck where it does not DEPEND upon those combos, but merely USES those combos if they happen to come around.

Learn what the cards are and what they do

Nothing is more time consuming than dueling someone who has to read each and every card you play until they can understand what it is and what it does. Play against many people and many decks to learn what the cards are! You can also get a game like Yugioh Ultimate Masters World Champions 2006 for GBA that you can practice by yourself on.

Do not copy a deck list or use a cookie cutter deck

Use these only for reference in building your own deck. They are useful to see how things work, but if you know about it, someone else does also. Experiment and try new things. Don’t be afraid to put a UFO Turtle in an Earth deck. See if it works, if it does not, then see what else you can come up with.

Life Points ARE the key to the game

If you have them and your opponent does not, you win! It’s that simple, there is no further debate on it.

The Cyber Dragon Controversy

Cyber Dragons are good. They have their place though, just as any other card does. There is NOT one single card in all of Yugioh that you can not counter or get around in one way or another! If you are tired of seeing Cyber Dragons coming at you, then put something in your deck that stops special summoning. If you or your deck are not adaptable you will lose! (Remember the Dinosaurs? Where are they now?)
