#7068455 [Leaderboard] BatMed vs Black D'Sceptyr

Posted by The Timekeeper on 13 January 2018 - 04:42 PM

I see that we are going for Summoning support here, which should make the analysis somewhat easy for me.

 

Card A

Our first Summoning support card is a Field Spell, which means Terraforming is a must for a Wicked GOD Deck that wishes to use this card. First, let's focus on how it goes for Summoning support. Given a great GY setup (i.e. 3 DARK monsters), I can just banish them to instantly set-up the Tribute Summon of a Wicked GOD. Though, that assumes you already have a Wicked GOD in your hand. Otherwise, you'd spend 2 turns setting that play up, which really isn't all that bad. I mean, it is slow, but you'd get a powerful monster out of it. That balances it out. The protection effect, well, isn't really all that powerful. I mean, just get some non-targeting removal and we are all set. Though since, I think, most things target these days, it would be somewhat difficult to get around. And if you want both effects to be used in sequence, and/or is needed instead of or.

 

Card B

And here we have a monster Summoning support card. Instant Tribute fodder set-up is there. The restriction to prevent Extra Deck shenanigans is there (which forces the +2 to only be used for Tribute Summons). Protection effect forces non-targeting non-destruction removal, which is rare iirc. And like Card A, you'd need to wait 2 turns to Summon a Wicked GOD if you didn't already have it in your hand.

 

So, what's the verdict here. Well, Card B can perform some serious deck-thinning to set-up its Tribute Summon while Card A relies on Tokens to do the job. Card B has a stronger protection effect than Card A has. Both Card A and Card B take the same amount of time to get a Wicked GOD out, even when considering if the Wicked GOD is in your hand or not. I'm going to give this to Card A, considering Card B has a +2 deck-thinning component that tips it over the edge power-wise. Though, both cards do what they do well.

That title belongs to Florida. There's a reason we dump all our old people there.


I must be imagining the stories of New Jersey smelling like shit.

#7066674 Blank Cards?

Posted by The Timekeeper on 07 January 2018 - 12:56 AM

It's straight from my computer, I download an image and try to do it that and I just get blank cards. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience. Also thank you for coming to help, I just wanted to address it since it's quite frustrating when I can't make these new cards since I've got so many ideas.

 

You can't upload from your computer anymore. It's been like that way for years, and it has to do with the PHP (Server-Side) codes that nobody but YCMaker (our Admin) has access to. Your best bet is to make an account on imgur, upload the art you want to use, paste the link where it asks you to, and then upload your card onto imgur to get a link to post it on YCM (the automatic upload is broken too).




#7065878 Desktop PC Building

Posted by The Timekeeper on 03 January 2018 - 02:55 AM

Ok so if you've never built a PC before I suggest you start off with a tower that has a lot of room on the inside while still being well optimized, this way you don't have to struggle with building everything from scratch while still being able to switch out parts and update it as needed. My friend and I recently did this, and all we really changed out was the fan, added a graphics card so it could run at 60 fps or above. I also suggest getting a nice Ram update if you'll use it for gaming, but honestly we didn't do that because we figured we'd build something better down the line anyways and if you have a decent graphics card it kinda compensates for the ram. 

 

Honestly it's kinda like adult legos, and we did everything through YouTube video tutorials! 

 

First of all, glad to see you Rapid. Long time, no see. Second, that's what I've been reading from the bit of research I've had. Some of the "best" builds for certain price points don't seem to require many parts to get working: tower, motherboard, ram, graphics card, processor, and hard drive being the main things for the build. And the tower in those builds appear to be friendly for first timers. I do plan on putting Linux on it as I don't want to dedicate money to buying Windows 10 (my only copy of Windows 10 was an OEM License upgrade when it was a free upgrade from Windows 8.1, so I can't transfer it over), so ideas on a good Linux for my uses (only Linux I have experience with in Linux Mint) would also be appreciated. And before anyone asks, I already have a wifi adapter (thank goodness I got it on sale), so I'm covered on the wifi front.

 

Also, it appears my budget may force me to go with AMD Ryzen chips. How are they? Anyway, thank you Rapid.




#7065651 Even Punishment [Written]

Posted by The Timekeeper on 01 January 2018 - 10:54 PM

I'm not sure if you know, but D.D. Stun was one of my old decks. At least, that's what I think I called the Deck. *shrugs* I do wonder why you decided to banish the target you control, though. What cards take advantage of destruction from either player to warrant that? Other than that, targeting destruction is something that can be avoided easily iirc, so I don't have that many issues with this card. The condition at the end does good to prevent abuse, especially since it says card instead of monster. Also, yay for flexibility. And tbh, that -1 could be insignificant depending on the card you banish. It could be a dead Spell/Trap that you don't need. The fact that this card can be a +0 given proper play is interesting, and rewards the skilled duelist. Hmm, good card. Bravo.




#7064451 [Striker][Written] Effigy (10/?)

Posted by The Timekeeper on 26 December 2017 - 10:07 PM

For your reviewing pleasure, I present to you the expansion of the Effigy Archetype. Originally a group of four monsters that can act as a Double Tribute for the Tribute Summon of a Normal Monster of the same Attribute, I thought I'd take this hardly used Archetype and give it some love. At the moment, I have 10 cards to show the direction in which I want to take the Effigy monsters. Yea, a lot of Special Summoning for an Archetype supposedly around Tribute Summoning, but an issue with just relying on Tribute Summoning is that of field presence and consistently getting those big plays with the Extra Deck out. So, hopefully this Archetype works alright.

This is actually really cool

After Lilith absorbs construct and Nekroz of Trishula, she becomes a water fiend with the power of the three Ice Barrier Dragons

 

It would actually fit lore to say she creates a winter Wasteland before being beheaded eventually


Thanks a ton :)

 

You know, I wouldn't have thought of that on my own. Thanks for helping me with your gift, Winter. ^^

Hmm, the freeze effects not affecting Shaddolls should be enough

 

The type change is nice for flavor, but doesn't really do much. I'd slap on a clause that it's always treated as a shaddoll card. At that point you're golden

 

Changes made. Just give me a "sec" to update the OP.




#7064207 [Striker] Christmas Gifts

Posted by The Timekeeper on 26 December 2017 - 12:01 AM

I like it, very honest to a "freezing aspect" of Winter

 

Only changes I'd make is to carve in exemptions of the negate rules for my main deck (shaddolls)

 

Reasoning being "I don't want to get screwed by this card" or "so it can see major use"?

 

Edited. Sorry about that. I did not confuse you with him, but that was a dumb and embarrassing typo. It's been a busy time of year and I often can half-write comments while I get called for something ^^"

 

Well, I hope that my gift at least took the feeling of business for a while, Sleepy. *hugs* And you're welcome. ^^




#7064033 [Sakura AGM Gift] Christmas Stuff 2017

Posted by The Timekeeper on 25 December 2017 - 05:48 AM

I do have to say that I love the card. With Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning at 2 (at 3 in OCG), this card will become its new best friend. Hell, Chaos Sorcerer gets a little love too. Though, that first effect seems a bit much: a double Foolish along with non-destruction removal. The second effect, it basically says "Banish 1 LIGHT monster and 1 other card from your GY; Special Summon 1 "Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning", and Special Summon this card during your next Standby Phase." You could replace Chaos Sorcerer with BLS, but the point still stands that for the price of banishing two cards, you get two powerful monsters (one the following turn, but the wait doesn't make up for it) that can knockout any opposition with ease. This card just feels too strong with all of that in mind, and the Summoning Conditions aren't that hard to fulfill in a Chaos Deck.

Interesting to see an Australian card, and that's a nice little quirk on a present that I haven't seen before. Doesn't have quite the speed to be a splashable engine in Winged Beasts, as unfortunately all effects have HOPT. Perhaps they weren't needed, considering how situational all the effects are, but it is a cute little card. Love the theming in general. Thanks for the present!

 

It seems I've forced HOPT in my head for so long that I forgot the existence of SOPT. The second effect, in hindsight, can use the SOPT. The third, perhaps a SOPT as well. As for the first, maybe. Unlikely to have more than one in the hand at once, so I guess a SOPT can be good there. Sounds good?

 

 

No "Winter Wasteland" :(

 

You wound me Striker

 

Don't you think Zootopia's second effect is a little too good? I assume it suffers the same problem as royal oppression. People will vomit their hand on board, summon multiple negators and quick removers, and then play Zootopia

 

I was going for more theme with that effect, I suppose. Royal Oppression slipped my mind, though I imagine the HOPT helps a bit? Still, it could be a little too good, but I'm not sure. *shrugs*

 

And don't worry Winter, I'm thinking about one for you.

Hohoho, Merry Christmas everyone. This thread will house the card gifts that I'm making for certain YCMers. I did my best to revolve the card around something they liked and keep it balanced at the same time. If you happen to receive a gift, then I hope you enjoy it.
