Plants don't use the FTK often, think of it as an alternate win-con they can sometimes pull off

012018-restricted-to-one-1.jpg?resize=87

 

012018-Semi-Restricted-Cards-1.jpg?resiz

 

There's honestly a ton of cards they can pull of the Limit/Semi list and multitude of simple erratas

 

Substitoad, Performage Plushfire, Makyura the Destructor , Hunter, Disk Commander, Fishborg Blaster, Magical Scientist, Level Eater, Cards of Safe Return, Butterfly Dagger- Elma, Premature Burial, Mass Driver, Royal Opression, and Ultimate offering all need HARD OPT

 

 

Barrage, Chain, Time Seal, and Juggler can return as is

 

 

Masterpeace, Kirin, Ptolo, and Drancia need to made into spell speed one cards (lose quick effect)

 

Construct needs to disallow you from ss'ing non-shaddolls the turn you activate it

 

AFD can't let you activate the card you search the turn you search it, a hard OPT in addition wont hurt

 

Meta needs to Restrict itself to lv 5 or lower

 

Norden needs Nt'ss summon conditions

 

Dragon Rulers need to

 

1) Banish 3 cards

2) has to only be attributes

3) Restriction that you can only use 1 "Dragon Ruler" effect per turn so you can baby and adult in the same turn

 

Dark Armed and Cyber Stein can go to 2

 

Nekroz of Brio can go to 2

 

Vanity can go to 3

 

Lone Fire and Grinder should be limited (latter maybe banned till slapped with a hard OPT). Every other monster in the semi section can go to 3

 

Dig, Reasoning, and Monster gate can hit 3

 

They did a pretty good job on the limited list though

Go to ROTK and read the break down for this week

 

Pretty stable meta. Regression lines for each deck have pretty low slopes (means they're not rapidly increasing or falling as percent of the meta)

TCG needs to free ding dong and put Ovi to 1 or Zefra will never really get a chance to shine.

Oh wow, that's quite diverse. Even Subterrors/Guru Control made in there when I thought it would be Tier 1.5 at best after watching a couple of gameplays.

What are Altergeists doing to be able to reach such percentage of representation?

Is that so? Didn't think that card alone would push them to the higher tiers. Got to watch some of their gameplays if I find them.

Yeah Multifaker is a hell of a card. Sets up the link with multiple negates, annoying as fuck to play against. Does take a while to set up its field though, which is probably why things like Zefra are doing better.

Gouki has a higher representation than Trickstar what the actual fuck.

 

How does a deck fall of the entire map in just 1 week.

He actually bundled two weeks (5&6) of the format

 

Infinite Transience is the answer btw

OCG2018017.jpg

 

 

Shino (しの‏) went 7-0-2 and finished 1-2nd in “36th Adachi CS with Hatti CS”
 
World Legacy Inheritor and Dark Armed Dragon are two new innovations that he has brought in for the Plant deck.
 
World Legacy Inheritor functions as an additional revival card alongside Monster Reborn and Soul Charge, giving the deck more outs to disruption.
 
Dark Armed Dragon is played in the Side Deck, providing additional fire power when going second.
 
He has also packed Forbidden Chalice in the Side Deck as a counter to Abyss Dweller and Inspector Boarder.
 
 
OCG2018017_Plant.jpg
 
 
Zefra
D Tsukai (D使い) went 9-0 and finished 1st in the “2nd Lucky Cup” (Team 2v2).
 
As Plant becomes increasingly popular, more Zefra players are including Inspector Boarder in the Side Deck.
 
OCG2018017_Zefra.jpg
 
 
Altergeist
On Saturday, GenGen went 5-1-1 and finished 2nd in “5th Yu-ky CS” which had 38 participants.
 
On Sunday, GenGen went 4-3-2 and finished 1-2nd in “36th Adachi CS with Hatti CS” (Team 3v3).
 
He has been testing with a copy of Temple of the Kings in the Side Deck.
 
When going first, Temple of the Kings allows him to activate his Trap Card on the same turn, enabling Altergeist Multifaker right on the go. By having Altergeist Protocol or Unending Nightmare preemptively activated on his turn, he would be able to activate their effect, even if the rest of his face-down Trap Cards are sealed by Red Reboot.
 
Temple of the Kings is also useful when going second in the Altergeist mirror match, allowing him to develop his board at the same pace as his opponent.
 
 
OCG2018017_Altergeist.jpg
 
 
Magician
Buku (ぶーくー) went 7-0-2 and finished 1-2nd in “36th Adachi CS with Hatti CS” (Team 3v3).
 
He ran a copy of Odd-Eyes Arc Pendulum Dragon for a Pendulum Scale 8 that is searchable by the effect of Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon.
 
The Pendulum Effect of Odd-Eyes Arc Pendulum Dragon is irrelevant in this deck as the only “Odd-Eyes” monster in the deck is Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon. Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon cannot be Special Summoned except by the summoning method listed in its effect.

Plant
 
 
The popularity of Plant continues to soar as many renowned Japanese players have made the switch to Plant.
 
Tsujimura Ryosuke “ひつじ” (2017 World Champion) went 6-1-1 and finished 2nd in “37th Adachi CS with Hatti CS”.
 
Momiji Daiki “モミジ” (5 – 8th in World Championship 2016, 9 – 26th in World Championship 2017) went 4-2-2 and finished 1st in “37th Adachi CS with Hatti CS”.
 
They were originally playing Zefra earlier in OCG 2018.01 Metagame Report #1, but have made the switch as Plant became much more formidable with the addition of Call of the Grave, Red Reboot, and the Troymares.
 
 
OCG2018018_Plant.jpg
 
 
Magician
Ishida (いしだ) went 8-0-1 and finished 1st in “1st Masaki CS” which had 60 participants.
 
He had brought back an old school tech – Mist Valley Apex Avian.
 
In addition to being Pendulum Summoned, Mist Valley Apex Avian can also be Special Summoned by the effect of Chronograph Sorcerer. This potentially allows Mist Valley Apex Avian to negate twice in the same turn.
 
 
OCG2018018_Magician.jpg
 
 
Zefra
Takepuu (たけぷぅ) went 6-2 and finished 3 – 4th in “1st Masaki CS” which had 60 participants.
 
He ran a small package of Genex cards (2 Genex Undine, 1 Genex Controller, 1 Crystron Rosenix, 1 Mecha Phantom Beast O-Lion in the Main Deck, and 1 Link Spider in the Extra Deck) for a more explosive Crystron Needlefiber opening.
 
Genex Zefra is a very high risk high reward build. Drawing Genex Controller or Crystron Rosenix in the opening hand would cause the whole Genex Undine combo to brick.
 
 
OCG2018018_GenexZefra.jpg
 
 
ABC
Yada Makoto “バコ” (5 – 8th in World Championship 2016) with his teammates, Muhi (むひ) and LinkLink, finished 1 – 2nd in “6th Aichi CS with Hatti CS” (Team 3v3) which had 57 teams (171 participants).
 
All 3 of them were playing the exact identical 70 cards, but finished with varying records. Yada Makoto went 6-2-1, Muhi went 8-0-1, and LinkLink went 4-3-2.
 
ABC aims to turbo out Crystron Needlefiber which would develop into a board of Firewall Dragon, Troymare Gryphon in the Main Monster Zones and ABC-Dragon Buster in the Extra Monster Zone.
 
The effect of Troymare Gryphon creates a soft-lock, preventing monsters which are not linked from activating their effects.
 
Having 3 Main Monster Zone opens allows ABC-Dragon Buster to split into A-Assault Core, B-Buster Drake, C-Crush Wyvern during the opponent’s turn. Any two of A, B, C can be used to Xyz Summon Daigusto Emeral, whose effect would then shuffle ABC-Dragon Buster back into the Extra Deck, allowing ABC-Dragon Buster to be Special Summoned a second time.
 
OCG2018018_ABC.jpg
 
 
 
Conclusion
 
 
Plant is pulling ahead, while the Pendulum decks, Magician and Zefra, are holding on steadfast behind.
 
The performance for ABC this week is heavily skewed by the data from result of a single tournament. We will have to observe if ABC could replicate its success across various other tournaments before we can conclusively evaluate its strength in the current competitive scene.

his report will cover 36 top-performing decks from 4 tournaments that were held in Japan and China during 3 – 6 March 2018.
 
 
OCG2018019.jpg
 
Metagame Breakdown
 
 
10 Magician:
5 Performapal Magician
3 Mono Magician
2 Supreme King Magician
6 Sentouki:
5 Mono Sentouki
1 Invoked Sentouki
5 Altergeist
4 Trickstar
3 Plant
1 ABC
1 Blue-Eyes
1 Burning Abyss
1 D/D Dinosaur Union FTK
1 Greener Brilliant Plant Dinosaur
1 Sentouki Gouki
1 SPYRAL
1 Zefra
 
 
Magician
Inakingu (いなきんぐ) went 6-1 and finished 1st in “33rd Oretachi Trading Card Division CS” (Team 2v2) which had 53 teams (106 participants).
 
He ran PSY-Framegear Gamma due to the prevalence of Plant in the previous weeks.
 
Imperial Order in the Side Deck is mainly against Sentouki, which had gain quite some popularity over this week.
 
OCG2018019_SupremeKingMagician.jpg
 
 
 
Sentouki
“Sentou” Spell Cards have an additional effect that is applied when 3 or more Spell Cards are in the graveyard, allowing them to trade one-for-two against the opponent. This allows Sentouki to pull ahead in card advantage, especially when the game drags on.
 
Osee (おせぇ) went 6-0-1 and finished 1 – 2nd in “5th Hakata CS with Hatti CS” (Team 3v3) which had 44 teams (132 participants).
 
To quickly fulfill the condition of 3 or more Spell Cards in the graveyard, he ran a full set of Toon Table of Contents and Toon World. Toon Table of Contents would search for copies of itself before ending with Toon World, which could then be used for the activation of Sentou Airspace Area Zero.
 
A copy of Toon Cyber Dragon is played in the Side Deck, to be swapped with Toon World when going second. Toon Cyber Dragon rids the opponent’s threat in the Extra Monster Zone by using them to Special Summon Chimeratech Megafleet Dragon.
 
 
OCG2018019_Sentouki.jpg
 
 
Altergeist
Mattuoff (マッツoff) went 7-1 and finished 1st in “1st Hami CS” which had 70 participants.
 
In his Main Deck, he played 3 copies of Torrential Tribute, a rather underrated Trap Card but very synergistic with Altergeist.
 
When going first, Altergeist generally commits only to the backrow, setting a couple of Trap Cards, but not summoning any monsters. This makes Torrential Tribute an effective board wipe for disrupting the opponent’s play, and at the same time triggering Altergeist Multifaker.
 
When going second, the 3 copies of Torrential Tribute can be smoothly switched out for 3 copies of Evenly Matched.
