I will be digesting this in parts but from what I have read so far, this is an amazing guide. I already knew a lot about the current Meta but didn't know that there could now be 2 Field Spells out at the same time.

Previously if you negated the activation of a card that activated in the Standby Phase such as Treeborn Frog then it could activate again, but now you cannot activate again.

So now my Inaba White Rabbit can't sap all the life out of LaDD anymore? Aww...

Surprising, how much do you play? You should at least have encountered it once or at least heard about it. But anyway, thanks for viewing!

Treeborn is optional.

 

Spirits returning to the hand is mandatory. So IWW keeps trying on its own. LaDD still has that critical hole in his armor.


Magic Set Editor can make Pendulums and Links, go get it to ease the 20 year wait until YCM adds them.

I imagine my cards actually being IN Booster Packs. As such I try and make them worth the rarity I assign them. A higher Rarity means the card is supposed to be more powerful.

My favorite post chain from this board involving myself.

I think it's about time I added something about Xyz Pendulum Monsters, so that is what I did. Check out the OP for more information.

Can you add the Rules for Dark Synchros, Number Monsters, Statue Cards, and Speed Spells? I know what they are and how they work myself, but others might not. These Rules are for if they ever come out. Any other Unreleased Types that I did not list, in terms of Card Types (NOT ARCHETYPES!), would also be appreciated. :)

1. Numbers don't have the anime Number clause in TCG. They can be destroyed by battle with any Xyz monster.
3. None of Dark Synchros, Statue Cards, nor Speed Spells in the TCG, which this is a rulebook for. If Konami does ever plan to release those cards, they'll post official rules about them. So far, thy don't exist, and are outside the scope of this rulebook.

On-Topic:

• Rulings for Contact Fusion on the wiki states that Contact Fusion is NOT a Fusion Summon.
• Synchro Summons only require non-Tuners if the materials state such (XX-Saber Gottoms doesn't care.) However, Synchro Summoning does require a Tuner even if it isn't explicitly mentioned. (For example, if you have a Phantom of Chaos copying Junk Synchron's name and a Level 1, you still cannot synchro summon Junk Warrior because Phantom of Chaos isn't a Tuner, even if it is "Junk Synchron".)
EDIT: You have this covered.

If I find more errors, I'll edit this post, but I'll be going through it slowly.

Oh, not sure how I messed that one up, thanks for noticing, will change that ASAP.

I added something that I recently learned about the Battle Step, in that you must enter it if you enter the Battle Phase, even if you do not plan to attack. Read the "10. Breakdown of the Battle Phase" section for more.

Updated 10. Breakdown of the Battle Phase with the new Damage Step rules. Be sure to check it out, it's quite important! Also Updated 11. Breakdown of the End Phase a bit as well. Other minor updates as well.

Currently updating the whole rulebook with formatting changes, updates to outdated things, improved images, new things etc. I have done up to "4. Playing Field & Gamemat" so far. Also, I have also made a new subsection called "20.3 Pendulum Normal Monsters" in "20. Pendulum Monsters" section as well as updated a few things in that same section and in the "Changes in the OCG/OCG only" section, which also have gotten another name since the changes aren't really that recent anymore.
