Dark Paladin's Yu-Gi-Oh! Dimension
PSYCH dueling Part III

4.19.05

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all!

Today, I bring you the final installment of PSYCH Dueling. This article will entail how experienced players use the PSYCH method.

Now, without further delay...

P stands for Psychology--The experienced player is probably best at psychology as opposed to any other part of PSYCH. They will be able to set useless traps or even spells to bluff just to maintain an upper hand over their opponent.
Having a wimpy Kycoo or something in attack mode, setting a Smashing Ground and taunting your opponent to attack. Being able to play with the opponents head is a key part in victory for the experienced duelist.

S stands for Stalling--Now, depending on how the experienced duelist plays, they may or may not utilize stalling. Some people play very aggressively intentionally trying to hit hard and fast. Hoping the opponent won't be able to recover from their mass onslaught. Other experienced players like to duel more slowly, save their big moves for a "climax" toward the end of the duel.
They may enjoy strining along their opponent and let them believe their winning to crush them in the end with one swift stroke.

Y stands for Yourself--This one is also quite easy for the experienced player.
By the advanced stage, these players already have an incredible amount of confidence in themselves, and their decks which they can use to help them with the other terms of PSYCH. These players have no problem with confidence, or even (sadly) arrogance which must be kept in check. Arrogance will only go so far, just remember, EVERYBODY loses sometimes, it isn't the end of the world.

C stands for Countering--The most experienced player is also able to counter most of what would be thrown out at them. While Zombies, Warriors, Chaos and the like are running rampant, the experienced player should be able to counter all of it. They should be researching what deck-types are dominate and study ways to shut them down. They'll also make a deck (more than likely) of one of the current Cookie Cutter variety knowing that going with what wins is how to win.

H stands for Have Fun--Now this sadly, can be what the most experienced player can forget, even if they win. Sometimes, the thrill or conquest to win can corrupt the more experienced player into forgetting about the most important thing about Yugioh, or any other game which is simply to HAVE FUN!!! It can be essential for lesser skilled players to remind experience players that they need to have fun, regardless of how many opponents they can trounce in a day.

Well, that does it for PSYCH Dueling, and I hope you all enjoyed it. On a side note, it's only 30 days until Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith which I'm eagerly awaiting.

Now, it's time for a few more character cards!

Kaiba:

Deck Destruction Virus (not to be confused with Deck Devestation Virus) Continuous Trap

Effect: This card can only be activated when a Spellcaster from your side of the field with 500 or less attack points is sent to the graveyard as a result of battle. During each of your opponent's stand-by phaese, discard 10 random cards from your opponents deck.

Now, I bet this is one many players want to be released, myself included. This could be absolutely devestating, and there isn't much else to say about it.

Rating: 9.0/10

Yugi:

Divine Wind
Normal Trap

Effect: Negate one of your opponents attacks and deal damage to your opponent equal to twice the attack of the monster attacking.

This is like Magic Cylinder on Steroids, how game breaking this card could be.
I mean, this thing makes Magic Cylinder obsolete.

Rating: 8.75/10

Joey:

Roll of Fate (Japanese name I think...not sure on English name) Normal Spell

Effect: Roll a 6 sided die. Draw cards equal to the result of the die roll, than discard that many cards from your hand.

This is a good draw card, but it kinda stinks that you have to also discard the same number of cards you drew. Not that big of a deal, unless somehow you drew all your staples in this single turn.

Rating: 7.5/10

That does it for today.

As always, feel free to contact me with anything @ tsearcy@lssu.edu

~Dark Paladin~
