You're giving them even more ideas. That's dangerous. But in all seriousness, I actually think it's nice to get such a diverse pack with this one, even if the implications are quite scary for people with Coulrophobia (the fear of clowns) in any case. I've argued that the deck won't be as good in the TCG as it is in the OCG, but it will still prove to be a nightmare for competitive play. You could say it'll become quite the circus.

No Shock + Rafflesia lock here, but then they still need to kill Nekroz with fire here and there since once Shock is gone there, I think Nekroz will come back.

To note: They probably decided all the rarities months before we even see any of the cards, since a lot of stuff has to go through red tape, approval, has to be set up for the printing presses, etc.

Flame Mascot is almost guaranteed to be at least Super (and that's if Konami is feeling generous).

I'm guessing Majespecters will be rarity bumped as well, what with the hype surrounding them and their bloody unicorn of doom.

Vortex Dragon will be chase (eventually) just because it's so clutch in the OCG. And obviously the second wave of Kozmo will be thrown at us with a "look what we made!" enthusiasm.

Why is Flame Mascot a guaranteed Super? Trick Clown made a whole new deck on its own and it was a common.

They'll probably leave the anime cards alone and rarity bump everything else.

Majespecters will probably be all super and up. Vortex dragon secret, etc etc.

After the Red-Eyes fiasco, I have a bad feeling for the archetypes in this set...

At least I don't mind people having to pay in blood to afford the Pendulum Spectors....if they want to ruin for everyone else, they'll have to pay some kind of price.

To note: They probably decided all the rarities months before we even see any of the cards, since a lot of stuff has to go through red tape, approval, has to be set up for the printing presses, etc.

Basically, that's how it goes. Rarities of the TCG are decided way before the cards are announced and/or released in the OCG. Konami knows what cards will be sought-after and decides upon that, some of the Konami NA/EU members were players and/or judges before being employees. Only rarely do we see harsh misjudgments.

We'll see. I suspect it's the biggest candidate for rarity bumping.

The only thing I'm worried about besides Magispecters and Pendulum Magicians is what we are going to get for Kozmos. They've been doing really well at regionals, and that's just with what they have now. I've got a feeling they're going to be broken as hell with support from DOCS.

Blue
14th September 2015, 03:48 PM
I expect the new Kozmo stuff to push them to a secure tier 1 position.

They're Konami's new baby, getting the same treatment BA got before them.

So this set's Kozmo stuff will be amazing. Then the rest of it from here onward will be mediocre/add little to the deck.

thewanderlast03
14th September 2015, 05:07 PM
As for the flame mascot rarity debate I feel they'll keep the common/rare theme going with performages for the TCG and make it a common/rare. Most likely a common though.

Speaking of Kosmos... now we just wait for the inevitable Kozmos Return from the Different Dimension card!

NeoArkadia
14th September 2015, 05:19 PM
Speculation: A fair number of imports this set will be D/D, as to make Caesar Ragnarok functional, as it was hyped as one of the big cards for the set.

Im mostly interested to see what they are going to do with the Kaiju deck sadly given the lack of articles on them and several articles on Kozmo they are going to be like UA where konami didnt put too much effort into them or give them much notice.

NeoArkadia
14th September 2015, 06:31 PM
Kaiju is exactly like the U.A.:

They're a weird but cool Deck that Konami never writes articles on since the emphasis is on Kozmo, their main World Premiere theme.

xeroplazm
14th September 2015, 06:35 PM
Kaiju really needs more monsters to make them actually viable since it's bad to give the opponent Kumongous when the field spell is on the field, unless you're using Remove Brainwashing.dek.

Blue
14th September 2015, 06:51 PM
An in-theme remove brainwashing would be pretty cool, or maybe something that summons "kaiju tokens" to your opponents side of the field to cheese their entire gimmick.

xeroplazm
14th September 2015, 06:54 PM
Tokens would be a cool gimmick for the deck. That way you can always make sure your'e opponent has something on the field to bring out your Kaijus.

Moe Lord
14th September 2015, 06:59 PM
If the next set continues to make non mythical monsters as there typing the ninja variant might actually get some traction. This would help the deck be more then just remove brainwashing.deck.
As a huge fan of old Toho movies i would love to see a Rodan based winged beast and an Anguirus based dinosaur.

xeroplazm
14th September 2015, 07:04 PM
I personally hope Mothra becomes a monster. There's a ninja-style Kaiju build?

Moe Lord
14th September 2015, 07:06 PM
you use hanzo and super trans to go into doragon and normal trans for kumungus

xeroplazm
14th September 2015, 07:07 PM
That sounds pretty neat.

Moe Lord
14th September 2015, 07:09 PM
right now its not very good because only 2 targets and you would have to use both trans but if they continue on it might become a legit strategy.

xeroplazm
14th September 2015, 07:13 PM
It could work in the future. My main strategy has been using the Aesir cards and then special summoning Fenrir and Jormungardr then getting them back with Remove Brainwashing. Obviously it isn't that great but its still fun.

My general assumption is "We get one monster of each Type".

And if we're getting stuff meant to be compatible with Ninjas: 1 Beast-Type, 1 Winged Beast-Type, 1 Dragon-Type and 1 Sea-Serpent-Type seem very likely prospects.

KingRthur
15th September 2015, 12:36 AM
I never even thought to use ninjas with kaiju. I hope the variant develops further!

LionOhDay
15th September 2015, 12:52 AM
I just hope we get Giant Mech Robots to fight these Kaiju's with :)

We might also see a Kaiser Colosseum for the deck? That way its just the Kaiju's duking it out.

I also am not worried about Greydles too much, at worst their Synchro will be super/ultra. There's too many other cards that require the rarity bump. I also suspect the Black Luster stuff will be just like the red eyes support. ( Though if its not I'm fine with that. I would love to use it. )

Deck list please for the love of god

Dread Kaiser
16th September 2015, 01:00 AM
Deck list please for the love of god

Unfortunately I no longer have the exact list, Still have the deck but it changed a lot since then. Its now a Photon-Super Defense Robo hybrid ft the below mentioned cards and Numeral Hunter.

That and a Metric fuckton of luck was involved.

It was Basically a deck made mostly from the JOTL Sneak peak for funsies.

I Let him get an Xyz on the board, and put a Flying C in response and cripple the Xyz with Betrayal. Basically, I pulled a Vector.
Then after letting him burn from sargasso for a while (or tried to, it only stuck around for 1 hit), Deny every move he made to try getting rid of C...usually by putting another one on the board just afterwords.

He was PISSED, between the "C"s not letting him Xyz and Vain Betrayer kept milling his outs to it. whenever he tried to swing with bigger things, they failed due to traps, most fun was boosting them with Xyz Soul (returning Googly Eyes for +1600 ATK)
When He finally put that Tidal on the board, I summoned another Googly eyes, use effect Xyz Soul and Stoic to make it a 6200 ATK mon with doubling damage over tidal for 7200

Like I said an assheap of luck was involved, I never used that deck against another person again as pissing off a guy that is literally double your weight is usually a bad idea. That and I seriously thought I'd die of laughter.

SynjoDeonecros
25th September 2015, 01:28 AM
It looks to be a Dinosaur, as well, which means I can use it in my Pendulum Dino-Rabbit deck, but the fact that it's an Effect Pendulum instead of a Normal Pendulum kinda hurts it in that deck. Still, it can work somehow, I guess.

Its a splashable, searchable Catastor that murders Non pendulums on contact and is a pendulum itself so it can come back to do it some more

Basically, unless having another level 4 is that big of a benefit to you .
Better stats are nice but its not like you have a shortage of 18+ beatsticks, right?

so the Level advantage is the only one that matters, Eccentrick is superior as a monster-killer soley because she does it MP1 instead of battle

I think they'll get the same rarity bump as majespecters. most likely it will be the same for majes and buster blader as it was for igknights and red eyes in core. they're just following a pattern of 1 pendulum archetype + 1 nostalgia archetype, that's my guess at least. why shouldn't they just copy the rarity disrtribution too?

SynjoDeonecros

Eh, we'll have to see. Honestly, I'm hoping for Graydle Dragon to get a rarity reduction, so the full set is easier to acquire. I'm intrigued enough by the juxtaposition of people bitching about them and them not making a dent in the meta to try them out and see what they're all about.

Eh, I dunno. You'd think it would've made some sort of impact, by now. Since I've been hearing rumblings about using it with Kaiji, maybe it'll make a more significant impact on the TCG, instead? We do have less splashable Spell/Trap hate to deal with, which would make the Graydles more viable...

So, when do you think we'll be getting a leak of the remaining cards, and their rarities? We've only got two weeks left to go before the sneak preview...

Whenever someone
a, gets their hands on some pacls
b, Opens them
c, has the guts to upload them

It's Typically 2-3 days beforehand, I imagine we will start seeing them on the 28thish, sooner if we are lucky

Crap, Painful Decision is a Super/Secret in the OCG, and considering it can pull 2 of the 3 Dragoons, as well as Vector and Master Pendulum, what would you bet that it'll get a rarity boost in the TCG?

It's probably going to get a rarity bump, but demand for the card will also play into its value. Demand might be kinda high, but it shouldn't be too bad. The card is basically Normal Pendulum Support, and while the Normal Pendulum deck is fun, I think people will be too focused on Flame Mascot.

Am i the only one who has a bad feeling about the tcg release for this set given the product cancellation, and the recent Breakers tcg reveals instead of revealing for this set. It comes off as though Konami is just viewing this set as a lost cause and banking on the beginning of the year with Breakers.

Why would this set be a lost cause? It's got Flame Mascot in it as well as the Majespecters; there's no way they're not going to capitalise on that.

It is just odd how they continue to reveal stuff for Breakers while ignoring this set especially how close we are. We got all the kozmo stuff revealed then it has been just Breaker news,hell we only just got an article for BLS only to immediately have Breaker news for more BLS.

It is pretty odd, yeah. My guess is it had to do with Breakers of Shadow packs coming out with DOCS packs in that Advanced Edition or something.

Yeah, that is weird. I wonder why they're doing that...

So, just got back from the sneak preview. Got most of the cards I need for a Graydle deck (just need 1 Dragon, 1 Impact, and 1-2 Parasite), but nothing else of note. Interestingly, Graydles seemed to be hot ticket items at my sneak preview; wouldn't it be funny if they, or a mashup with them, became the new rouge deck to follow for this format?

The Sneak was weird for me given I play Majespecters and they're absolutely immune to Greydle targeting, so I plowed through anyone using em. I think that made people reconsider Greydles a lot.

Maybe, but I've heard people at my Sneak say that Majespecters aren't going to be good until Masters of Pendulum comes out, so you can combine them with the Magicians there. They also said something about a secret strategy they came up with for Graydles, but they didn't say what it was, so I'm not sure what they were planning for it. I do know that, with the random spread of Majespecters in my Sneak, people combined the two for some weird combos, mainly by exploiting Kirin.

Not so sure that's true. I'm fairly certain that quite a few pure Majespecters decks managed to make a showing in Japanese local tournaments. But the Magicians do provide a much easier way to Summon Unicorn, seeing as the Majespecter monsters either have a scale of 2 or 5, and Unicorn is level 6. Pendulum Calling into Dragonpit/Oafdragon Magician and Dragonpulse is a much quicker setup as well. Oafdragon is also a Level 6 Wind Spellcaster for Xyz plays with Unicorn, or a tribute for the Traps/Spells.

I also noticed that people were clamoring for Grand Horn of Heaven, and showing surprise that it was just a regular common. What do you guys think of that?

Wouldn't even think of using it against non-Pendulum decks. Giving my opponent a draw while only negating and destroying one of his monsters is just too much. Now, if I'm facing a pendulum deck, I can negate a pendulum summon, and if he summons any pendulum monsters, they go to the graveyard instead of the extra deck! It's a win-win situation!

Well, Clownblade, EMem, and Majespecters are going to be big in the next format, so that's probably why they're clamoring for it.

Majespecters can't recover before Supercell is Legal but you can't reliably kill them in general so I suppose that Horn might be a good option.
But why not just run 3 wavering eyes? It's way faster to get into play, doesn't require setting, and still makes Majespecters brick really hard.

ClownBlade and mEME aren't going to be much of an issue due to the lack of amazing Rank4s they can use (as of this moment at least) but I fear for the Deck's consistency as soon as PP Pendulum Sorcerer becomes legal. At that point, running Horn would be quite necessary, as breaking their scales with Wavering is only going to benefit them more.

Also, something to consider is that MoP comes out and it brings 2 unbreakable scales via Pendulum Call, and a whole deck of OTK Magicians that hit the field via Pendulum due to their levels. Now, against that, I would want to run Horn.

I see, so as I said, upcoming pendulum threat is spurring interest in Grand Horn.
